What being a MSM means to you: It means that I am in responsibility to protect the mainsite from whatever is deemed in proper.

Abilities and how/when I would use them: moderator powers are, ip ban, ban, time period ban, warning, chek IP address. They would use them according to the level of the rule that was broken

What Being An MSM Means to me: MSMs are a very important part to sploder. They are the most mature and responsible people chosen to guard and help keep sploder a place where members can feel comfortable around others.

Powers:

Warning-A warning is very common.It is just something that members do that break the rules
and they are being monitored by having to fill in some blurry words just to make a post.It is not serious.

Ban- A ban can occur from a few days to a week.This happens when a member that has already got a warning breaks another rule. It could be for a longer period of time depending on what the member has done.

IP Ban- This type of ban is for alts.You Can only have one forum account. If you have more than one account,you will be ip banned.

IP Check- Find any member on the Main Site and
find out anything about them.

Permanent Ban-self-explanatory

I Would use my powers for good.I won't use it to show off,I would be the best Mod that i can be.

~1~ I would like to be a MSM so I can help sploder with the people who are doing things against the sploder rules. Throughout sploder history there has been over a thousand different hackers, spammers, and people who use inappropriate talk. I would like to make sure that these people can't do it again. I would make sure that I used my place on the MSM list fairly and would not abuse the privilege.
-2-
WARNING: Say you were caught advertising. You would receive a warning. The warning would tell you what you did wrong and not to do it again. The warn tool is the most commonly used tool and is the least severe.
Ban: There are three types of banning, The Regular Ban, The IP ban, and the Perma-Ban. Let's start with the first shall we?  Say you were warned for advertising well, you would be banned for a little bit. If you did something more severe you may be regular-banned.
 The IP ban, I prefer to call this guy the "alt stopper." Many members have a nice and clean record on one account but they create an alt and spam or talk about inappropriate subjects. Well  we would use the "alt stopper" to get both accounts and punish the member.
 For the finale of this exciting trilogy let us talk about the Perma-Ban shall we? The perma-ban is for the people who have broken the rules more than once, or have done something very severe that went against the sploder rules. The perma-ban would be a ban that would never allow you back on sploder. This is the most severe of the banning weapons in my opinion.
IP Check: The IP check is a simple tool that allows you to go through a members IP and see that sort of stuff. So if you have an ALT you would be IP checked and they would see your alt. Unless you do bad stuff on your alt you wouldn't be banned.
The Hack Log: this contraption can be used for members who have changed their IP's.
The moderation panel: This is where MSM's go to see which comment's and or games have been reported.

Using these tools I would ban the people who deserved it and try to do my part to make sploder a better place.

What being a moderator means  to me is to have  great power that is supposed to be used for good which means don't  warn someone cause you want to
Warning : say you spammed more then once
BAN : you continue to do something that got you warned
IP banned : only in super bad situations say what sceptile did  blackmail
IP check  a tool used to  make sure someone didn't make alts to say get out of a ban or warning
Hack Log  A  thing to check if some one changed there  IP adress
MSM panell this is where mods can go to see reported games , comments ,or users  and decide if it's bad and what kind of enforcement  shall be used if it's bad
Using these i would   make sploder a safer and funner place

Sploder has been a part of my life for more than 4 years now. Becoming a MSM would be huge for me as it would give me the chance to prevent destruction to this site that I really have grown to love. Sploder needs love, it deserves to be looked after to keep a friendly environment for the users as many are young. I would be an active MSM and I would be fair to all users no matter who they are and I would be polite.

A warning:
A warning is basically a little note you send to someone who has been breaking rules by committing minor offences such as spamming or swearing. In the warning you should include the reason why you have sent it and the consequence if they chose to ignore your warning.

Ban:
A ban is generally used for more serious offences such as creating multiple porn graphics or if the user is continually spamming or cursing after already receiving a warning. A ban will prevent the user from posting and sending awards to stop him from causing more trouble on the site.

IP ban:
This power is used by MSM's to stop members that have been banned from creating accounts on Sploder to get around the ban they have received.

IP Check:
The IP check is used to verify if an account has the same IP as another account. The IP checker is used if something "smells fishy" and a MSM suspects a user to have an alt to get around a ban.

Remove Messages:
A MSM can remove offensive messages to prevent other users from viewing them.
I say it as I see it.
I don't lick anyone's behind to gain "respect" on this site.
You either like me or don't.


Always happy to help.

Being a MSM means to me that you need to be able to handle situations, be responsible. Only ban people with reason without any reasons there is no point in banning them. If you're gonna ban them for spamming go ahead. Banning for flame wars, go ahead. Or banning them for making hate games about real life people. Example: Justin Bieber, One Direction,.etc) Another thing is you need to warn before banning. Unless it's really serious measures.
[/size]
[/size]A list of banning reasons would be the one's I'e listed above and hacking, swearing abuse like posting a bad word and bypassing it. Like well you know, we can also flag games and Geoff can check them, moreover one thing is that you can delete comments, well changing them to (Message deleted by mod) More powers is IP Banning. A situation to do this would be if someone get's banned for bypassing. But then makes a new account, that's where the IP ban comes in. Usually you don't hear from them again until they get another computer I guess. This concludes our conversation.

What being a MSM means to you~ If I was to be a main site moderator, I would be amazed, and I'd promise to do the best of work. Becoming an MSM would mean a lot to me as I have been dying to help out sploder even more instead of just looking for stuff to do. I promise I will do my best of work if I ever become an MSM.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:

An MSM has a lot of powers on sploder, and an MSM's job is to protect the site from swearing, spamming, inappropriate games, graphics or tags and to ban all those who do. Here's a list of the jobs an MSM has~

The ability to ban users~ If any user has been spamming a lot lately, making inappropriate games, tags or graphics or even swearing and threatening, a moderator can ban the members doing said activities. However, members will still be able to make games and friends, just not talk to people. Moderators can also IP ban a user or even permanently ban a user on sploder.

Warning Members~ Moderators have the ability to warn members if they doing something wrong, but not too bad. Say if they were swearing a little or spamming a little, a moderator wouldn't ban them. They would just warn them to not do it again.

Reporting Members~ This is to let moderators know if a member is doing something wrong.

IP Checking~ If someone who is permanently  banned or IP banned, a moderator can IP check a user if they have any alts. Also, if someone wants their alts removed, they can IP check a user to see which alts they are.

Deleting Comments~ If a moderator finds any inappropriate comments, they can remove their comment unless the user who wrote the comment removes it before. They may get a warning too.

Flagging a Game~ This is where a moderator shows a game to Geoff so he can remove it if the game has gotten too many views to be deleted. Usually a game is flagged because it is in direct violation to the ToS.

Quarantining a User~ This puts a user under watch of all the moderators.

Blocking Games/Graphics~ This is where a moderator deletes a game or graphic or blocks them because of its content.

Access to Msm Panel~ A moderator can check the latest bans and warnings on this site, so a moderator knows if the same person does something wrong again who was originally banned/warned my a different moderator.

Verbal Warnings~ This isn't as bad as actually banning/warning a user. A moderator tells a user that they are doing something wrong and not to do it again via messaging.

Anybody who thanks,Will see the benefit for the site.
-The awesome thank me.
-The cool add me on the Ms.
-The dumb smite me.

To me, a moderator is a user who has potential to help and ban inappropriate users on sploder. They can also check the hack log and ip ban if cases come to the worst.

A moderators job is to look after sploder, practically a second eye. They should be caring towards users and they should help newbies learn.

The main purpose of a moderator is to ban/warn inappropriate users, ip ban users if the case becomes really bad, guide users who are new, delete spam awards/silly games and bad graphics and check the hack log. To me a moderator is a mature user who has potential to become a part of the sploder staff.

I haven’t really been long here on sploder. I joined a few months ago and already I’ve gotten a noob impression. People feel I’m too immature to handle responsibility, so I’m scared of the outcome of this in the bunker. Though I might be new, I am knowledgeable to sploder. From what I know a moderator is to moderate the mainsite, to make sure this site is protected. It’s a kid’s website, and it would bring bad rep to sploder of people posted porn and swear words, we want kids to learn don’t we? Moderators can:

Delete graphics:
A moderator can delete inappropriate graphics.

Flagging a game:
This is a situation when a moderator sees a game that breaks the terms of service. Moderators themselves cannot delete games, but they can flag games to almighty Geoff, who has the power to do anything on this site, including deleting the inappropriate games posted by members.

IP Check:
The IP check is used to verify if a main site account has the same IP as another main site  account. The IP is Internet protocol, the method by which information is sent between two computers on the web, well, that’s what I know, And it is used to determine whether a member has an alt. Alts may be good, or bad. Alts can be used for ban evasion, which is bad, but alts can also be used for collabs or backup accounts, which are good, to a certain extent. Ip check can also be used on forums, but hey, we’re not applying for forum mods are we?

Delete messages:
A MSM can delete or remove messages which break the terms of service. Messages such as insults, spams etc. are not needed in the mainsite, and will be removed by the moderator. Which is why you see messages which read: “Message deleted by moderator”. Though a message has to be reported before a moderator can actually take action on it.

A warning:
A warning is a little notice you send to a member breaking the rules. Of course you can’t immediately ban the member unless it’s a huge offence, but regular offences like swearing deserve warnings. A moderator sends it to them, it appears whenever they log on, such as “Moderator moolatycoon has issued a warning: Please stop swearing, or we will take drastic actions”. And from a previous experience I’ve had, warnings also add a spam alert to your messages, in case you want to spam, you have to fill out a form, which makes it annoying to post, and who would want to post with that nasty little thing you have to fill out there before you can post?

Ban:
A ban is something most members would want to avoid. A ban is like taking away a member’s freedom on the site. It disallows the member from posting or sending awards. This is for serious situations, when members ignore warnings and continue to misbehave, when members break the terms of service in a massive way, when foolish little members try to give this site a bad name. But I don’t have to babble anymore, unlike warnings, bans don’t give the spam alert, they restrict the member from even posting like I said above. Moderators can also specify how long the ban will remain, it could remain a day, a week, or even forever.

IP ban:
In my opinion, this is the worst thing that a moderator can give a member. When a member has received a ban, and makes an alt and continues to make the same offence, a moderator can decide to stop the member from creating accs again. This type of ban disallows the member from creating a new acc to break the rules again.

To sum it all up, a moderator stops bullies, ends arguments, swearing and further breaking of rules using his powers. On the report page, moderators can view all the nasty things that members write, and take action, or if the messages or acts of the member are even more serious than an IP ban, they can flag messages to Geoff, which can cause Geoff to delete the member’s acc. They have access to the MSM panel, where they can view the recent happenings, hackings, warnings and reports on sploder. They can view which members enter an account at a time.
There are also some things moderators can do which don’t deal with moderating the site. They can view private graphics

Being MSM means that I will be able to help people and make Sploder a better place.(kinda like a police officer) Moderators stop innapropriate behavior and make sure that all members are doing what the Terms of Services say and I want to help with ensuring that everybody respects these "laws" and does exactly what they say.

MSMs do many things to insure peace in Sploder:

They can flag games and graphics that are innapropriate so that Geoff can delete them.

They can IP check members to see if they have a forum alt or if the member is hacked.

Moderators can also warn members if they did something wrong but not too bad. Warnings will alert the member of something wrong they did so they can get back on track before they get banned.

Members are banned after breaking a rule. A ban keeps them from posting or giving awards.

MSMs have the ability to delete posts that is considered spam or break a certain rule.

Perma Bans are something Moderators can give after repeatedly ignoring bans and warnings.

IP bans prevent a member from logging on or making an alt. This is a last resort.

Another thing Mods can do is to quarantate a user which basically means watching a user.

MSMs can also access the MSM panel to see new moderation-related things.(like bans)

Thank you for reading(unless you skipped to the end for some reason).
-Peter

For me, Sploder is a brilliant website ran by a great owner known as Geoff, and I would be stoked to be able to help him and his great team of moderators keep the peaceful utopia named Sploder safe and fun for members of all ages. I am a knowledgable member here, somewhat mature, and soft enough not to abuse powers, but wise enough to know when to say, "Okay, this is enough, action must be done." To prove my knowledgability, I will list the powers that I know that a moderator has:

DELETING GRAPHICS: If a graphic is suggestive and inappropriate, a moderator can delete said graphic.

FLAGGING GAMES: Seeing as the powers of moderation do not extend to being able to delete games, they can flag games that break the Terms of Service, sending the game to Geoff so that he can decide whether to delete the offending game.

IP CHECKING: Moderators have the ability to check the IP of members. This is a rather useful ability that helps in the finding of alternate accounts. Alternate accounts aren't always bad, but if they are used to get around a ban, the moderator can check the IP of a suspicious member that might be an alternate account of a banned member. If not, well...

DELETING MESSAGES: There are so many people on Sploder who find it funny to break the Terms of Service by psoting hanus messages. So moderators have to be able to do something about it, being their job to keep Sploder in check. Interestingly, moderators can't really delete messages (Geoff can), but they can "remove" them, and when they do that, it appears as [Message deleted by moderator].

WARNINGS: Moderators have the ability to warn people. A warning is just what it sounds like, a little notice sent to the member letting them know that they did something wrong and waring them not to do it again. Pretty simple.

REGULAR BANNINGS: Moderators, after warning, can ban a person for an alloted time period. This usually happens after a member has been warned, and repeated his offenses. This person, contrary to popular belief, can go online, but cannot post or make games. So there's no point in disobeying.

IP BANNING: This is something that is used VERY rarely. This is a stretched out version of a ban that bans anybody on a certain IP, AND locks the member from entering his account, AND...yes, and, it stops anybody on that IP from making an account. I feel bad for sceptile's brother, he's missing out on a neat site. lol

So, all in all, moderators are the godsends of Sploder, keeping the site safe and free of jerks. Moderators are brave people that have to endure hours of flamemail and don't give two you-know-what-I-means about it. They are strong members who need to be responsible with their powers, e.g. not banning a person who called them a bad game maker.

THANK YOU for taking your own precious time to read this. I hope it appeases you.

I figured I'd apply... I think I applied like 6 months ago and got flat out rejected. Lol.

What being a MSM means to you:
Being an MSM means being somebody who blocks and filters innapropriate content from the MS. MSMs can also ban users who show innopropriate behavior including hackers. This allows sploder to be more fun and safer for other people. They should have good judgement, be honest, and should be kind to others. An MSM also has a lot more power so he has to make sure not to abuse them.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:

-Viewing Reported Comments
MSMs can see reported comments on a page called the mod panel, in which they can ban, warn, or do whatever they see fit based on whether rules were broken, and if so, how severely. I would use the mod panel all the time so I can see which comments were reported.

-IP Checking
MSMs can access an IP checker, which checs the IP of any member. An IP is a tracking code anybody who is connected to the internet will have. Mods can then use these codes to see if one member's code matches another member's to see if one member is an alt. I would IP check someone if I suspect they are an alt to catch someone trying to have multiple accounts on the forums.

-The Hack Log
The hack log is a log in which mods can access which tells you hack attempts. These attempts are based on when members try to access someone else's account while logged on. MSMs can then ban or warn these members, or see this as evidence for another case. I would use the hack log a lot if I suspect something, or just to check up on it. If a user is trying to hack another user, I will report it to my superiors.

-Warnings
An MSM has the power to warn a user. This action usually happens before banning to give the members a chance and to inform them of what they did wrong and what will happen if they do it again. This can be seen as a strike leading to a ban. A warn will last 3 months before it disappears if the user does not do anything else wrong. I would use these warning a lot if I see a user doing something bad, but not so bad that it would be an instant ban. I would judge whether to give a ban or warning by how severe the outcome was, if they broke a lot of rules, etc.

-Banning/IP Banning
In a major offense or repetitive minor offenses (warnings), MSMs can ban members. A regular ban is when it is something bad and that particular account is banned for a while. An IP ban is when the user does something really, really bad and their entire IP is blocked so they can't escape with alts. I would only use bans occasionally when something really bad happens.

Thanks for reading this ridiculously long thingy. lol

What being a MSM means to you: I'm not going to go on about how it would mean everything to me to be an MSM, and how I dream of it, because being honest, that's a little sad. I do, however, see becoming an MSM as a post of responsibility and importance to keep the site running smoothly. I'm aware that the role is not given away to anyone, and if I didn't want it I wouldn't be applying, but I don't think obsessing to use the role and experiment with powers is going to help anything around the site, and it should be a responsibility that is used when needed, and not when trying to impress people.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in: The MSM's job is simpler than people make it sound. To make sure everything is running correctly and things don't get out of control. The work that is involved is a little more complicated. Moderators are expected to scan through mainsite activity when they can. Mostly around the message boards, but sometimes around the games and graphics region. Making sure nothing inappropriate filters through. Moderators have the ability to ban members, report situations directly to geoff, restore games, delete messages and warn members too. If a moderator is skimming through posts, he has to be empathetic. It's not like the forums where applicants are warned that the forums is more mature than the MS. Most of the members are just creative children who want to make games and are more sensitive around criticism and mature comments. A moderator needs to judge from posts whether they are likely to be offended by some posts, or willing to take some posts on the chin and understand they have no real weight to them. I think I have these qualities and I'm prepared to take a step back and examine a situation before stepping in.

What being a MSM means to me: MSM powers to me our something that is essential for keeping this forum up into a real community and not just flame wars in every other thread. To me it means a lot of duty and responsibility,and I would like to be one due to my love for this forum <3 and my general consideration altogether. Without mods this would be the place you would avoid without really caring. There is usually always a troublemaker that a moderator has to set straight. If some troublemaker doesn't get warned or banned then who knows what havoc could happen! Flame Wars and Cyberbullying possibly. Which are two things that when I see make me very sympathetic. I want to be happy looking on this forum and I want others to aswell. We do have a good amount of fine moderators already taking care of this,but the feeling that I get when I help someone is when in that one moment in anime when someone isn't dead.
 A list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in: So I'm not gonna go in a very literal "they ban people" approach. I'll just say that  mods have the powers to help out people who are getting harassed by others and they'd use this  when they see a case of any sort of harassment. In literal terms giving the person who is harassing a calm warning just to let them know they messed up,and a ban when we find out the case is deliberate. The mods can also use the power of helping and ponies to find if someone else uses magical duplication spells, in other terms they can find someones Internet Protocol (IP) to prevent alts from being created whilst someone is stasis'd(banned)
There is also a super stasis which prevents them from coming back
They can also tell you if someone is trying to get into someones soul by using something called a hack log,or seeing if someone is trying to hack someone else. They can also delete messages,graphics, and restore games if the person who made the game accidentally removed it.

Now I hope you had as much fun reading that as I had typing it,and just a reminder. Vote for me of whether or not you like it,not just because you want yours to be voted for as well.



And now a "I will" statement to kick it off

I will make sure not to just go along banning and warning everyone if I see inappropriate behavior. I'll make sure to see if it is a joke,or if it was unintentional but be sure not to give out a complete freebie for the mishap could offend people the comment wasn't directed at.

Mainsite Moderator Application~

What being a Mainsite Moderator means to me:

A Moderator is a special member that's main job is to protect and serve our little corner of the web and enforce the Sploder law. A Moderator must be an active member and take his/her job seriously, including not abusing powers. A Moderator must also investigate any situation described by a member even if the source of the information seems like a noob that has no idea what he or she is talking about and take the appropriate actions toward the situation if necessary. A Moderator should also be friendly to everyone even if he/she doesn't like a certain person and give help to a person that needs help. In the end being a Moderator to me means being there to help the members of Sploder and to enforce our laws.

The Powers of a Mainsite Moderator:

Warnings- A Warning can be issued to a member if he/she is a first time offender, to kind of warn them to not do something again. A situation where a Moderator would issue a warning could be if the person bypassed once or twice.

Bans- The Ban; the most basic tool in any Moderators arsenal. A Moderator uses a ban against a member when that member has broken a rule/s, the length of the ban can be adjusted depending on the severity of the offense. Examples: A user has used profanity and/or spammed. (Spam-Posting the same thing over and over; or posting a random thing over and over. Ex. hdbehfbeh)

IP Bans- An Ip ban is one of the severest of punishments a Moderator can give, and is reserved for the worst offenses. A situation where a Moderator would issue an Ip banishment could be repeated offenses, bypassing, posting pornography, profanity, threatening members, making inappropriate games/graphics etc. (Ex. The Sceptile situation
January 2012)


Game Restoration- There is a page where members can request for games of theirs to be restored if they were deleted. Moderators are the ones that check this page and try their best to find the people's games and restore them. Some times games can not be restored (if they were privated or unpublished.) This is a very important job and unfortunately a lot of the Moderators do not check this page leaving members stranded and waiting for a reply.

Graphic & Award Deletion- Moderators have the ability to delete graphics and awards. A Moderator should not just delete things for the fun of it, but only delete them if they are inappropriate. Containing bypassing or sexual content for example.

Flagging- Moderators can flag off comments and or games to Geoff for deletion. Situations to flag comments or games is if they contain sexual content or anything else that breaks the terms of service.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Note~

A Moderator must be mature, friendly, trustworthy, active and responsible and I feel that I am all of these things and for that reason am ready to contribute something to this site for once and think that being a Moderator would be perfect for me to help. I realize that recently I did something that a lot of people didn't like and thus lost respect for me, but I am changing into someone who has these traits. I hope you take this into consideration as you read over my application and make your final decision. Thank you for reading.
