Applying For Moderator
What do we want from a moderator?
As you can probably already see from playing on the WarZone servers, our servers need a lot of moderating and moderators/admins to upkeep the rules. We are always looking for new staff for this reason.
The main thing we would like from you is to show you are integrated within the community. We know that people play on the servers quite often but you need to be integrated within other parts of the community, such as being active on Discord or TeamSpeak. As you can see below in the voting process, all admins vote and give their opinion on your application. Being active on our chat applications, mainly Discord, can give admins a sense of who you are, they can get to know you.
Applying before you're integrated within the admins and community will most likely be declined. This is nothing bad - we just ask that before applying you integrate yourself within the community.
To apply for moderator you can click the "Apply" button on the top of the website. Alternately you can visit this link: https://warzone.gg/applyforadmin. Click "New Application", select "Garry's Mod - Moderator".
- You need to hit the requirement of 14 years of age
- You need to have your Steam account linked to WarZone. You can find out more information here: Linking Accounts
- You need to have an understandable level of English
For an application a single line of "pls gibe admin" or such quality will not get accepted. We understand that people think that just playing on the server and wanting to help moderating is good, but it's not good enough for our application process. We take applications very seriously, and as such we take our staff roles seriously. In an application you need content. A couple of paragraphs will be fine, we do not need to know everything about you, below you will see questions you should ask yourself while applying for the position.
- Who am I?
- What the WZ servers mean to me?
- Why do I play on the servers?
- What additions can I bring to the staff team?
- Why cheaters ruin the game
- What experience do I have from other servers or games?
This list is not a full list of what a good application is - it's a start. You will need to do some creative thinking to make your application stand out.
Once you start your application all the questions are basic, except the Steam ID in 32 bit format. You can easily find this by inputting your Steam link into this website here: https://steamidfinder.com/
Having low hours will also get your application declined. We recommend over 25 hours - anything else is too little for us to form a proper opinion on.
Once you've submitted your application admins will now vote on it. This process can take a number of days and admins will give feedback on it. At the end the end of it Senior Management will either accept or decline an application based on the number of votes it gets.
The current ratio of yes votes to no votes is 8:2 - for example if you got 8 yes votes and 3 no votes the application will be declined. The admins in question would put their reasons for voting no - this gives you the chance to improve and re-apply.
This application took me 10 minutes to do. This is by no means perfect but it is very clear and explains a lot of areas well.
This is to only serve a guide for applying for moderator. This can be updated at any time in the future without notice.
