Princess Windeh here. :3

Im pretty active on both and have 2 reviews i think. I used to be an active recruiter on the old forums too...The guys who i accepted are good reviewers too now. : )

oh my god.... rollaZ.... is... is that....

Well, I can't disagree. Congrats firepinch! Do you think I should try again btw?
we're not done looking over all of the applications!! If your app had been accepted or denied you'll see your status on the main page changed to either accepted or denied. patience is once again key.

I don't run the recruitment(s) but I'm certain you can. Moderator and reviewer are two completely different things and you should not be punished by waiting 2 weeks to apply for moderator after failing your reviewer application. They are both different roles with different application processes.

on another note....

congrats to the first person to pass through our system....

FIREPINCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ??? ??? ??? ??? 8) cue the celebratory fanfare

I'm gonna go ahead and accept this as well.

Adding onto what Marijn said, I love how you are able to point out all the wrongs in the game all while keeping a fine balance with what the game did right. Your ability to keep the reader interested is definitely there, as well as generic stuff like grammar.

and with that....... for anyone looking to apply, Reviewer Recruitment is now up!! Head over to the Reviewer Lane for further instruction on how to submit your application.

Hello friends, welcome to the brand new Reviewer Recruitment of 2019! I'm not gonna explain much on how to apply as it's fairly simple. Just follow the steps below and soon you may be walking out of the Reviewer Lane with a brand new R badge!!

The steps are as follows:

1. Make a thread in the Reviewer Lane, review written and prepared; preferably in a format similar to: "Review Title" - A Review of Joji Goes to Taco Bell by pepperedSteak

2. Copy and paste your review into the thread, and press create new topic! It's that simple.

Below I've written a few basic points of how to increase your chances of getting accepted, and wowing the recruiters in the process. Of course, this is all based on my personal subjective opinion and while I'd recommend to use these tips to the best of your advantage, you're not required to at all. ANYWAY, they are as follows:

-First and foremost, you should try to make your review as interesting to the reader as possible. Even with correct grammar, even with a lengthy review, the last thing you want is for the review to seem to "drag on" constantly. Monotony is something you definitely want to avoid when writing the review; keeping the reader's attention is crucial.

-Keeping what I said above in mind, you also want to have a good understanding of punctuation, grammar, and correct use of wording. as a example, your gonna want too avoid this kind of sentance structure wholly; bc it says a ton about the way u'd rite if u get acceoted or in this case. denied. If you have trouble with this kind of thing, which is completely acceptable, there is always free grammar checking software available if you need it. I would recommend Grammarly.

-Remember to never be afraid to make your review as unique or different as possible!! This goes hand and hand with my first tip; something I'd expect is for readers to want variety and uniqueness between the reviews they read, and doing so would keep them not only interested, but wanting more as well. Having your own style, signature, sense of humor, etc is something I feel that should be encouraged much much more when writing reviews.

-And finally, if you can, try to get some decent length in. I'd say 8 paragraphs seems to be the sweet spot, going over all aspects of the game (story, art, scenery, gameplay, etc) all while trying your best to keep it unique and interesting. If you think of something for your review but end up going "Awh, that would never work...", try fitting that idea in the best you can!!! It definitely wouldn't hurt to try.

.....aaaaand that's it! I wish you the best of luck in writing your review and hopefully getting it accepted! Believe it or not, reviews help the mainsite out a lot in terms of activity and livelihood and we could use as many of them as we can get.

Quick side note: Similar to the MSM recruitment, we ask you to not resubmit a denied application for a full 2 weeks as that time frame gives you a chance to go over what you did wrong and how to improve substantially in your next application. Good luck to all applicants!!

Wow, I didnt expect this many applicants at all!! I'm glad so many people are willing to step up and try to help the best they can. Results should be coming out soon for those who've turned in their tests, once again best of luck!!

I was a recruiter on the previous recruitment, I am able to give non biased opinions on reviews and constructive criticism. It may be irrelevant but I have won best reviewer in 2016 and now 2018. I am capable of activity regarding the recruitment.

MS Username: Duck5557474

With my excessive activity on the MS, I think I would be able to recruit very quickly and easily. I am a hard worker, and I do not give up in difficult times. I see things on both sides of the spectrum, to avoid being biased. I also can critique people constructively, while not seeming pushy or annoying. Thank you for your time!

I have managed reviewer recruitment in the past, and my demotion from reviewer had nothing to do with my reviewing capability. This may be a stretch but I'm just curious if I'm allowed to apply.
Sorry fellas... I probably would but I shoulda said that the R badge is a requirement. There's always time to apply though!!

I have experience with reviewer recruitment centers.
Accepted................ (reluctantly). Wish you woulda put more down and this is not the way to go when applying. You were, however, a decent recruiter previously and therefore I feel you deserve it.

You aren't the first to approach me about the overall recruitment! We are still allowing a system where peppered can control editor recruitment so long as she ensures editors have the primary say in things. The reason behind this is to favor necessity, which was always an issue back then.
I'm really not sure id be qualified for this, i um don't know much about editor stuff let alone how to run a recruitment for it. If I do get to decide though I'd be fine with meta doing it, he seems passionate enough about it as long as it isn't ridiculously hard like some previous editor recruitments were

Lol, for a staff team who doesn’t want to have one person with to much power or stagnation, you guys sure don’t seem to mind letting one person run the entire thing.  Also, I thought you said previously the heads weren’t fully decided yet.
this is why i'm getting a bunch of moderators and reviewers to be my equals in deciding who gets in or not? you seem to be making a lot of assumptions. the m/r recruitment definitely isn't a dictatorship and that's the number 1 thing i tried to steer clear of in designing the two...

Peppered hadn't yet unveiled how she was going to choose people!! Since I posted that she has now seemingly shown how that process will be gone about and she isn't the sole dictator! She is but the one designing the system. There is equal rule among everyone who will be designated as a recruiter. She is still below us and we will change things up if issues occur.
Wellllll i did for reviewer recruitment, as for moderator recruitment that's still in the works as it's hard with my system to integrate a "post to apply" system, although we'll see in the future.

I was very active in the old recruitment before the forum was first deleted. I have a decent amount of current reviews and about 6-7 drafts right now. I'll be very active with the recruitment, and I am capable of providing good reasoning for accepting/denying. For a little bit, I had a thread where I would critique denied reviews and I think I did a good job with what I had. I can be constructive but neutral too
Accepted. You were one of the best recruiters on the old forum and I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to be a recruiter here.

For the upcoming reviewer recruitment, we need at *least* 5 reviewer recruiters so the accepting/denying process could become a lot easier and smoother for not only the recruiters, but the applicants themselves. The more the better! Apply below, and in a format similar to:

MS Username:
List off your qualifications and why you think you'd be good for the job. Some examples would be how active you are around both the mainsite and forums, how many reviews you have, how active you would be if you get the job, and things in a similar category. It's not hard, but try to make yourself stand out the most!!

Current recruiters:
pepperedSteak (Lead)
Meta KnighT (Futuremillionaire)
Crazykittyzz (Sivershadows)

shut up. Shut up. SHUT UP!!!!! Physics Puzzle Maker is clearly da best

Hello and welcome to the new and (hopefully) improved MSM recruitment center of the wonderful year of 2019, hosted by yours truly!! Just follow a few simple steps and soon enough you’ll be walking outta this thread with a shiny new MSM badge!

If you happen to fail, you will have to wait 2 weeks to reapply. This will give you some time to go over maybe what you did wrong and what you can improve on with your next application. Just remember that if you attempt to reapply before the 2 weeks are over, you will NOT be sent the test again so don’t even attempt it. With that out of the way, let’s get to the process of applying...

Part One: A Simple PM

The first thing you’re gonna do is PM me something along the lines of:
“I’d like to apply for Moderator…”
...aaaaand that’s it! You will be sent the test by me whenever I see the PM.

Part Two: The Test

While I won’t give out much information on the test, I will say that it comprises of multiple sections, all based on written answers. I wish you luck!

Part Three: Application review

When you complete and submit your application, it will then be judged by me and 7 other active moderators and if everything seems to check out (70% yes vote), you’ve successfully passed the MSM test and will be placed on the big man’s To-Do list! Wooo awww yeah hooray!!!!!!  :o :o :o :o 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) :P :P :P :P ;D

And with that, I hope you have at least a general understanding of the application process and how it works. Good luck on the test and I hope you pass, much love!!

request: similar to the pre-august 2018 forums, could we possibly have the first 10-ish threads be displayed under the board itself on the home screen? of course this wouldnt include child boards
