I don't like this as much as the other system.

But do the regular recruiters still stand for those who thank the posts now or can just any random thank? You should probably put a little more info spell but other then that it seems okay.

Recruiters don't exist. And this system is so much more simple! This is how we used to do it at least.

Even with voting in the Bunker, we still can't tell how the members would use the powers, just because they know what they are doesn't necessarily mean they can use them well. imo

I don't think it's convenient, just because a member will know what the powers are and what they do (there's a thread somewhere from memory by Luigi with a list of all of this stuff for crying out loud lol) doesn't necessarily reflect how well they can use them and in which instances they are appropriate to use. It doesn't tell you really at all how they can handle and use the powers right, which is what we want in an MSM. That is why the test with given examples is much more convenient, it shows us how good a member can judge situations and use the powers accordingly rather then just stating what the powers include.

Once again you can delete this once you read it, I don't want it to seem like I'm being an ass btw, just stating my opinion on it.

It's okay, but this is how it used to be, and nothing has EVER gone wrong. Not only that, but people who want to be MSMs but are generally overlooked now have a chance.

MSM powers are being able to ban people, what I would do is ban people who are doing stuff against the rules and I have been mod (In my head) and I think I'm doing good. What I mean by that is look at people's messages and see if there being good for sploder or not. Another power MSM power is warning and what you do is by warning people if there doing somthing against the rules but they did it the first time then if they keep doing somthing against the rules then you were to banned them.


Some situations I would use warning is if like a person is bypassing a lot then a warning then if they don't stop you ban them for (Depends how bad they were cussing.) Banning, I would use it by banning people you are at least breaking 3 really meaningful rules then I would ban that person.


 Also a MSM can Ip check people to see if they have an alt/s. I would use to see if I banned a person and they make another account and there doing bad stuff then I would Ip ban them so they can't be groos or whatever there doing against the rules. Ip banned is when you and ALL of you alt/s and you can't even make a new account. So I would Ip ban someone if I banned a person then to make so they don't have an alt/s and then I'll ban that and keep a close eye on the others then if he's still bad then I would Ip ban him.


The 3 main of sploder to me are, respectful, people being appropriate for the littler one's on sploder,this kinda goes with number 2 but absolutely no bypassing. When your a MSM you can flag games and messages to Geoff for deletion.

Ok, What A MSM has, A MSM is a main site moderator, and moderators bann people for a period of time, IP ban, which is banning people forever, or just giving them warning. Msms do these if a sploder member has broken the terms of service. First, you give them warnings, if they continue to do that bad thing, you give them another warning, and they can't comment or can't do one certain thing. When that wears off and thay still continue to do that bad thing, you bann them, either for a period of time, or forever.

When I would use banns: When a sploder member has broken the terms of service, such as, Inappropirate games, flame wars, members tomenting one another, etc, etc.

What bans are there: Warnings are for when a sploder member has broken the terms of service once. Bans are for when a sploder member has broken the terms of service multiple times, and Ip bans are for when a sploder member has broken the terms of service multiple times after a period ban.

What are IP banns: Ip banns ban the sploder member it is sent to forever, and the sploder member cannot make another account with the same email adress.

Thanks for reading! Have a nice day!

1. Being a moderator lets me help people in the Sploder community. I can do things to stop people from doing more harm or damage to the site.

2.
   Warning: A warning is when a person does something bad once but it isn't major. So they sent them a warning to see if things get any better.
    When I will use it: When I see a person doing minor damage, like a little spamming,cussing and flaming.

   
   Banning: A ban is when a person does a very bad thing like plenty of cussing,flaming and spamming. So they ban them and that unables them from posting, so they can't do any more harm.

    When I will use it: I will use it when a person is spamming,cussing or flaming a lot.


     I.P ban: I.P ban is very bad, it's just like getting banned, except you ban people that have the same I.P, so people can't evade bans by making another alt.

    When I will use it: I will use it when I see a person escape a ban with a alternate account on the MS.

 
      Perma Ban: Perma ban is the worst of them all, you can't even do anything at all, pretty much the same like I.P except you can do anything in the accounts.

 
      Check I.P address: Mods can check I.P addresses to make sure people are not avoiding a ban or doing bad things in all the accounts.

   When I will use it: I will use it when I see something suspicious then I will I.P check them and see if they have a alt or they are avoiding a ban.

 A Main site Moderator to me? What it means? A MSM is a person who keeps the main site in check, and under all regulations given, enforcing the 'law' and trying to have the site the site it should be, weeding out people who just come to make things worse. The purifiers of the website; those who make everything the way it should be. This job is important, as there are many kids on this website, and without proper moderation, they would be terribly influenced and hurt (emotionally) by people who shouldn't be there. This can be proven; if you go up to a kid in 6th grade, for example, where I am, they'd be able to speak about things they should not have learned, and talk the way they should most certainly not talk. Nobody needs more bad influences, and the MSM's job is to enforce this and help the website be friendly as well; to have a good influence.

The MSM has the power to remove/censor comments anywhere on the main site. This can be used, and should be used, to moderate messages around the MS, to keep them clean of things inappropriate that could affect anyone, such as the things you know are inappropriate, and are probably thinking of when I said 'inappropriate', right..?
And on a sidenote, I have limited knowledge of the powers of the MSM, but I got some help from others / the other people who've posted in this thread. Sorry about that, but anyway,
the MSM also has the power to ban. This is a stricter punishment and regulation to the people on the MS who don't follow the rules and do something bad. This is a CRUCIAL job, as there are the people who do bad things to an extent where censoring all their comments is not enough, and a ban is required. However, this sometimes is a dangerous job, as banning a member who did nothing wrong is not great at all. This is the same with issuing warnings, which is self-explanatory, it's a warning to the person who did something wrong.

When I would use these powers? Anytime I see an inappropriate post, profile description, username, game, or anything else. I assume the MSM's will have to do like a patrol every now and then, going around the MS searching for inappropriate things, like a policeman lurking around the city searching for a murderer.

To sum up, the MSM is an important job, and even though if he/she doesn't have to do much work, the very presence of the badge he/she bears acts as a sign; "I am an moderator. Be careful bad guys, i'm on a lookout."  c:

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator allows me to help our community, and help Sploder be a safer and more enjoyable environment; Being a moderator also gives me the opportunity to enforce the rules, and deal with those who break them. MSM is a serious job and responsibility, requiring you to deal with various reports; But my dedication to Sploder is strong, and I pledge to work as hard as I can, if I ever become a MSM. I look at people's messages allot, and I see many rule-breaking ones; I want to do something about it, I want to be someone who's a role-model to all members, someone who can make Sploder a better place.

Powers:

MSM's have various powers, such as being able to ban those who break the Terms of service, warn users if they commit a minor offense or if it's their first time breaking a rule, check reported posts to make sure they are ban/warning worthy. Moderators can also check a user's I.P address, (The unique group of numbers that identifies each internet-attached computer) so they can make sure a banned user does not evade a ban with an alternate account. Another unique power a MSM posseses is I.P banning, which prevents accounts of the same I.P address to be created, making sure the worst of banned users do not create alts and cause more trouble. Moderators can also remove/sensor comments from the Main site. They can also flag inappropriate graphics, and restore games, (To help people who deleted them by accident) but they can also delete games. (Ones that break the terms of service, at least)

Final notes:

MSM is a difficult task, that requires patience and emotional strength, I have seen many mature and skilled moderators flamed for banning people who deserved their bans. A moderator also needs to deal with various offenses, such as spam, bypassing, and inappropriate comments, making it a job of many varieties. Some people think MSM is a fancy title that grants you popularity, but that is completely incorrect; MSM is a massive responsibility, and wearing the badge is not only a great honor, but a commitment.


 All my time on Sploder, I have wanted to help out; please, give me a chance to prove my worth, to make Sploder not only more enjoyable, but safer.

Thank you for reading, noble recruiter.

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot for me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the comments and newest games to check that there is no inappropriate things also I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments: Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Reported Graphics, Comments and Games: As we know Moderators can't delete the games but this is a way to make them see inappropriate games which includes Sex graphics or this kind of words. There are children playing this games so we are able to report them and maybe Geoff may see them. Inappropriate comments are reported so I can see it if I am a Moderator.

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.


 
Note: I am almost 8 hours Online in a day so it will be a easy stuff for me. It will be a honor to make a Sploder a better and safe Website.

What being a MSM means to you: A MSM to me is a sacred agent to Sploder. They keep Sploder a peaceful place for wonderful people to play and enjoy games, unleash their creativity with their games, and allow people to just chill out and chat. They repel the dangers of the internet and keep Sploder the premier website for making games.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
Ban Hammer: Nickname for banning. Banning is where a member cannot use the account forever and/or for a period of time. Use when a member violates high end rules, such as racism, hacking, bullying and/or receive 2 warnings.
Flag games: Flags games for geoff to remove. Making games with scenes of nudity, racism, gory and bloody or rude games.
Removing members from ban list: Removes people from the ban list after they have served their period of being banned from the site. Remove anyone who has served their time.
IP check: Check IP's for impostors and/or members who  have banned accounts to make sure they stay in line.
Warning: Gives a warning to the user for violating rules. Use for members who constantly violate rules.


Well, thats it for now, lol. Wouldn't surprised if this doesn't make it, but whatever.

What being an MSM means to me:


Well first off, being an MSM brings you a chance to ensure that our community is safe. They draw our attention to a friendly atmosphere where they look out for both young and old. Judging from a perspective, I know that being a Moderator means a lot of responsibility - 
You have to deal with a number of reports and issues on the Mainsite. When a user tends to disobey the rules, a Moderator has to ensure what the user deserves. On the side note, a Moderator has certain goals but they also have choices.  When a user comes to disobey the rules, all these questions come to mind. How should I ensure that the user gets what he deserves? What must I do? A Moderator is responsible for the actions they take into account when it comes to certain issues like this.

However, this doesn't stop me from becoming one; for I am mature and fairly active. I am also familiarly aware of the rules on the mainsite. On the other hand, I've observed a number of rule-breaking issues on the mainsite which is telling me that I should take action. Being a Moderator takes this into account and he ensures that the user gets what he deserves.





Powers:

MSMs seem to have a lot of hard work in their hands but the powers given to them encourages them to ensure that the Mainsite is atmospherically friendly. They use their powers to deal with any rule-breaking issues throughout. These powers include checking I.Ps and checking reported posts and graphics. Moderators also ensure that games and graphics come clean without any traces of rule-breaking involved.

From a perspective, the site is also suitable for all ages so it is really necessary to avoid games and graphics with any threats of misbehavior. A user is also given the ability to report games and graphics that seem to be rule-breaking. These reported games/graphics will takes it way to the moderators who will ensure that the user found guilty deserves his ban. Geoff can take this further into account by deleting these games and graphics like there was nothing evident.

Moderators are also given a unique power - they're armed with warnings and bans which wouldn't allow the rule-breaking user to get away with it.
They ensure that the rule-breaking user is given an appropriate time just enough to get their dirty socks off and start clean. If it happens again, a moderator has no other choice - they have to increase their time again and again until the user comes clean; or they can disable some comments like nothing ever happened.

In this case, we're dealing with bigger bans. For this to happen, they must have the responsibility to do so. What would happen if the user doesn't deserve the appropriate time given to him? What should I do to get his socks clean? Is there any way to stop him from getting off the tracks? All these questions, are faced by a MSM when dealing with rule-breaking culprits like these.
If it does happen though, a moderator wouldn't want to play nice.




Final Note:

I am aware that being a moderator is not as easy as it looks, rather being difficult and also requires a serious matter of responsibility. I, however on the other hand observed the work given to a number of moderators on the mainsite. In this case, they're dealing with rule-breaking offenses like spam, bypassing and inappropriate comments, games and graphics.

A responsible moderator will not intend to use his badge for popularity; However, His intentions are to use it for commitment and to prove that he has the responsibility to ensure that his goals and tasks as moderator are aimed.

I believe that I have the potential to become a MSM and I hope to ensure that the mainsite creates a friendly atmosphere throughout. I have been on this site for four years and I have seen the many choices taken when being one.
I know that I have the responsibility to do so as I hope that this badge gives me the chance to prove my purpose.

I will not only use it for a sense of achievement but to also show my purpose on the mainsite.





To end this, best of wishes into reading and I hope you understand my purpose. Thanks for all the time taken.

Alright. I am going to make this nice and short!!

Been an MSM to me means:
Stopping inappropriate games, usernames on sploder, also helping sploder develop into a friendly site where kids can enjoy there time on sploder without inappropriate content and inappropriate messages getting sent to them, a site where they can feel safe. A site that parents recommend and kids recommend.

MSM have the powers too,

Warn people

Ban people

I.P ban

perma ban

and check I.P addresses.

when would I use these things?

Warning: If a user just bypasses or has done a minor thing against the rules.

Ban people: Where you have given them a warning and they have kept on doing the thing you have told them not too.

I.P ban: When you have banned them and they can't make alts, to still go on the site  since they are banned.

Perma ban: When they have done something VERY extreme, a very bad thing and have not listened to all the bans etc.

I.P checking: When someone may make an alt and spam and flame everyone, or sometimes getting off warnings etc.

Thank you for your time!!

I agree with Jack here.

I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure last time you had this recruitment system, Luigi hadn't made a thread containing everything a moderator can do, and when it should be used.

I agree with bringing back the application process, as it means less people will be overlooked, but I believe we should keep the test. It helped to make sure the potential MSMs knew what to do in scenarios. You may not have noticed, but none of these applications set exact boundaries for where they deem rule breaking starts. None have them have specified when posting a lot becomes spam, or where a little becomes a lot.

1: What becoming a moderator means to me:

 Being a moderator would be good for me, I believe, because I spent a lot of my time on the main site while still a newb looking for people being bullied, and trying to help them. The only downside to this is I'd have to wait for a mod to read my comments. While in the meantime this member is getting continually bullied. I feel that if I was a moderator I would be able to help that member straight away. And I understand exactly what I'd have to deal with: Members requesting bans on a daily basis, that I'd have to look up and decide who was in the wrong, for a warning or at last resort a ban. The amount of responsibility it comes with. Because the ability to read member's IP's I believe can be dangerous in the wrong person's hands.I truly believe I am ready for this huge responsibility, I only hope others know that.

2: What powers a moderator has, and how he should use them:

 Well, that is really quite simple. The moderator has the ability to end arguments, bullying, swearing, and ect, by either giving a warning to one, or even both of the members. By banning a member, if things get too out of control, or he/she is truly deserving of the ban. And the IP ban, which completely denies access to logging on, or even making a new account, to the one IP  banned. This is probably one of the best tools for stopping bullying, but should only be used if absolutely neccessary. Moderators can also view the 'report' page, which is a list of all comments which have been reported. They can even flag an account to geoof for him to completely delete an account. All of this should be used with the utmost care, because it would be truly unfair for the wrong user who hasn't done anything wrong to be punished, which is why moderators need to be mature members, who can handle the responsibility. I would use these powers to the best of my ability to stop bullying, and hating of any sort on the mainsite.




I hope I've answered everything you asked for. Thank you.

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 evn more instead of just reviewing extraordinary games (not that being a reviewer is terrible in any way.) 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, inapropriate 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 inapropriate 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 perma 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 perma 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 inapropriate 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.

What is a MSM Moderator to me? Well, A Mainsite Moderator to me means that I make sure the rules are followed, and making sure that the Sploder Community remains a safe and enjoyable community for all. They help keep the Community in check and make sure that those who break the rules shall face the consequences. Although, Mainsite Moderator is a tough job, which is not meant for everybody, I have always wanted to help the out in the Sploder Community and the people in it, and I believe that I would do what it takes to help the laws of Sploder be followed, and help make Sploder a nice and enjoyable gaming community. I will do what I can to make sure that the rules are followed and that the one's who break them shall be dealt with. That is my main goal as a Mainsite Moderator.

Mainsite Moderators have a variety of different of different things that they can do to make sure that the Sploder Community remains a safe place.

The first is the ability to ban a certain user. This is relatively simple. If I notice a user that is not following the Terms of Use Agreement, I have the right to ban that player for a certain amount of time. If that ban didn't help, and that user is then still breaking the rules I can choose the more serious options, which are I.P bans or Perma-bans. Let's go into more detail about what these are.

If a user keeps breaking the rules I also have the ability I.P ban them. This is used in more serious cases, and removes the user's ability to escape his ban by creating an alt. I.P ban means that I will ban the user and any alts that are made with the same I.P.

If the user is absolutely horrible at following the rules, and continues to break them, I can also choose to ban them permanently from the system. This ensures that the specific user can never return to Sploder and that he does not deserve to hang around in this site. This ban is only used for a last resort and in very serious cases.

Being a Mainsite Moderator, I can also give a warning to people who is not following the Terms of Use. This warning should be taken seriously, and if the user still doesn't follow the rules, it can result in a temporary ban.

As a Mainsite Moderator, I also possess the ability to report a certain user. By doing this I let people know that a user is bot following the rules and that he should be dealt with.

Removing Comments is also one of the many tasks that a Mainsite Moderator can perform. If a comment contains advertising, innapropriate words or just simple hate, I can choose to remove that comment to ensure safety in the site.

I can also tell Geoff to remove a certain game by flagging it. This should be done if the game has innapropriate content of any kind of violation in the Terms of Use Agreement.

Final words:

I know that Mainsite Moderator is definitely not as easy at it looks to be. It is a tough job and should be taken very seriously. This also requires alot of responsibility for the Moderator himself, to be able to help keep the Sploder Community a safe place for everyone to be in, and to make sure that the user who are breaking the rules are facing the proper punishment. I belive that I got what it takes to help keep this site safe, and I will do my best in making sure that the rules are being followed.

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator allows me to improve Sploder. It helps Sploder to be a better, safer and awesome place. Being a MSM requires a great responsibility because you have to be sympathetic and responsible. Being a moderator gives me the opportunity to deal with those people who break the rules. I've noticed that many people tend to create games that are inappropriate such as "Kill Justin Bieber" or "Level 250 Hack." I consider myself an active member who is able to use the MSM powers correctly. I will never ban anyone without having researched a little more. I have personally reported some users such as Jeff9 for blackmailing.

Powers:

IP Check: MSM can check your IP. They are up to date with your alts. You can also IP ban someone, this means that they can´t create a new account with the same Wi-Fi.

Warnings: All persons who are registered on this website are human. This means that we can make mistakes. Warning is a way to warn the user not to make a mistake again.

Perma Ban: Perma Ban is the worst thing you can get a long with IP ban. You can´t do anything if you´re Perma Banned. You can Perma ban someone If he has blackmailed or he  keeps making mistakes.

Disable and Enable comments: Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Reported Graphics, Comments and Games: As we know Moderators can't delete the games but they can give warnings. If there is a game containing sex, badwords, etc it can be reported to Geoff. This is because there are children playing this website.

Banning: You can ban one who has broken the rules more tham 2 times.

Final Notes:

Being a MSM requires a great responsability. If I get accepted, I will try my hardest and I will be very active. A moderator also needs to deal with various offenses, such as spam, bypassing, and inappropriate comments, making it a job of many varieties.

I have always wanted to make Sploder a better place. Please, give me a change to demonstrate my abilities and I will not disappoint you.

I agree with Jack here.

I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure last time you had this recruitment system, Luigi hadn't made a thread containing everything a moderator can do, and when it should be used.

I agree with bringing back the application process, as it means less people will be overlooked, but I believe we should keep the test. It helped to make sure the potential MSMs knew what to do in scenarios. You may not have noticed, but none of these applications set exact boundaries for where they deem rule breaking starts. None have them have specified when posting a lot becomes spam, or where a little becomes a lot.
Nope. Not once has anyone done a bad job under my system ever, and I have had my system running for around a year.

Application
Being an MSM is a job that very few can handle, it requires the member to have a large amount of responsibility and the ability to use the powers in the correct way. Having the ability to moderate the site is a privelage and many people misuse the power. If I were to be a MSM, I would not keep the badge to raise my views, I will keep it to show people that I have the ability to enforce the sploder rules and keep it a safe place for all members.

An MSM has the abilities to delete awards either sent by a member to his or herself or an awards that violates the terms of service, this ability helps reduce the amount of spam on the website and stops hateful messages from spreading to one another.

An MSM also has the ability to delete posts that may offend an individual member and others. Some of these posts can include content that may strongly bypass the rules of sploder such as:

BULLYING
OFFENSIVE RACIAL, RELIGIOUS, AND SEXIST COMMENTS
SWEARING
AND DISRESPECTING A MEMBER IN AUTHORITY

* MY MS USERNAME IS SHATTEREDGLASSX!

What a moderator means to me.


A moderator is a member who deals with appropriate, and other serious things on sploder. A moderator should never abuse their powers. A moderator deals with members that break the rules. A moderator should be active and reply to as many reports as possible. A moderator should help to retrieve games as much as they can to make the member happy. A moderator should give tips to members that could help them stay safe on sploder. A moderator should check graphics and games to make sure they don't offend members or teach them inappropriate things. A moderator should also be active, mature and calm. Also, a moderator should make sploder members satisfied. 


What a moderator does.


Banning members -

(Before this, a moderator must get evidence that the member has done wrong) They will track the member who has either offended or upset another sploder member or broke the rules. The member should be handled in a serious yet calm manner. A moderator must make sure the point get across to the member so they know what they have done is wrong. The moderator should then explain, calmly, that the member will be banned for a certain amount of time depending what they have done.

Deleting inappropriate graphics/games -

If a game/graphic has been found inappropriate, a moderator must choose carefully if it is an inappropriate/game graphic that might be offensive to other members and teaching them bad things. Also, it could put a bad note on sploder.

Restoring games -

If a game has been accidently deleted, the moderator, sometimes, has the ability to bring it back. The moderator should try their hardest to restore the game to make the the member satisfied with their game restoration.

Replying to the ban appeal -

This is where members can appeal to their ban to give them a reason why a moderator should unban them. The moderator should be active replying to the ban appeal and be calm and fair to the member who is discussing on why they should be unbanned.

Warning a user -

This is where the moderator posts a message on a members page giving them a warning for breaking the rules. The moderator should fully explain what they have done wrong so the member knows to not do it again.

Reported members -

This is the place where a moderator checks the reported messages that members have sent in as inappropriate. The moderator should be active on this board and when the moderator finds an inappropriate post, they will delete the post and possibly ban or warn the member.

Deleting posts -

This gives the moderator the power to delete inappropriate posts. A moderator should decide carefully if the post is worthy enough to be deleted.

Access to the moderator board -

This is where the moderators will check the latest moderation news, such as: deleted posts, games and banned members.

I.P checks -

This is where a moderator can check members I.P's to help find banned members alts so they can ban them with more ease.

Flagging a game -

Moderators can flag a game that will be sent to geoff and geoff will decide if he should delete it or not. Games will only be flagged if they are inappropriate.

Verbal warning -

This warning is just a message reply on a members page telling them about something they have done. This is different from a normal warning because all members can see it.

Quarantining a member -

This is where a member will have an eye taken on them by all moderators so they can keep track of what the member is doing just in case the member breaks the rules. A member is usually quarantined because moderators might feel the member is up to something.


Final note.

I know a moderator has to be: active, mature, calm and responsible. I am aware that I have to do these things in order to be a moderator. I have tried my best for a while now and think that I would be a decent moderator. I will try my best to be active, mature calm and responsible. A moderator is one of the sploder jobs that I have studied for a while.
I have been on sploder MS for around 1 and 1/4 years now and think that I am responsible and experienced enough to be a sploder moderator.
I know that a moderator can sometimes be tough but I feel that I can handle anything that comes at me.
A moderator will not use my MSM badge to make myself more popular and use it very wisely.

I thank you for taking your valuable time to read my application and I really hope you accept me to be one of your worthy MSM moderators.


If you thank me, I'm sure, I will make sploder a better place.

MS name: ryanrider673

What a good MSM is;
A good main site moderator should be a mature members who knows what they are doing. They should have confidence when dealing with problems and should know how to sort it out.

What being an MSM would mean to me:

Being an MSM would facinate me and really boost my confidence when dealing with any issues there may be on the MS. I could very easily sort all issues out using the powers given as an MSM.

I have always wanted to be an MSM so I could help anyone who needs assistance. I am a friendly member that is easy to get along with so that could also help me.

Powers a MSM is given:

A MSM is given many unique powers other members do not receive which I shall list below.

Temporary ban-
A temporary ban is when a user is violating the rules in a bad way. If the moderator believes the actions Dof the user is worth it, they can issue a ban which still allows the user to log on and make friends. However they can not post, make games or awards in case they yet again violate the rules doing so.

Warning users-
A warning is when a member violates a rule in a less serious way. This can range from spamming to flaming or anything else for that matter. If the moderator finds what a user is doing violates the rules, they can send them a warning which is a message on their home page stating why they have received the warning. This usually dissapears after 2-3 months.

Verbal warning-
A verbal warning is when again, someone does something that slightly violates the rules. If the moderator consideres this rather minor they can post a comment on their page stating why they have received the comment and ask them to stop
Quarantining members-
This means all MSMs can see what the certain member that has been quarantined for whatever reason. This enable MSMs to see when the user violates the rules so they can then ban or warn the user.

Pernament ban-
This power bans the user altogether so they can not log in at all. This can only be received by commiting a serious offence.

Blocking games/graphics-
If a moderator finds a game abusive or offencive, they can block it. This means no one can play it except moderators. It can not be removed unless Geoff does so.

Flagging-
This enables moderators to report a member, game or graphic directly at Geoff. This is usually done if a moderator is unsure what they should do with it so is passed on to Geoff to decide.

Deleting posts-
A moderator can remove a post if it posted in an abusive or offenceive way. A post can also be removed if a post contains account or personal information. Once removed, the message will display, [message deleted by moderator] This often results in a warning.

Ip ban-
This is the most severe punishment. This means the actual owner of the account can not make another account. This is called an IP, this is often received for ban evasion and nothing else really.

IP check-
This is how moderators know if a member has any alts or doged a ban. The user ip shows everything done and created on sploder. This is also an effective way to look for abusive posts. If a banned account is displayed with another account after. They have doged a ban.

Acsess to the MSM panel-
This allows a moderator to look at all previous bans and warnings. Nothing much really.

Final word:
I am a friendly and very active member that likes to help users. I could advance in this being a MSM and can increase sploder's saftey. Most importantly I will never abuse my powers.

Thank you for taking the time to read my application

What being a Moderator is to me:

A moderator is a very important job.  They make Sploder a better place.  They can ban/warn anybody who breaks the Terms of Service.  If there were no Moderators Sploder would be a train wreck.  Moderators have an important role and I respect them very much.

If I were a Moderator I would keep Sploder safe.  I would ban/warn hackers, spammers, flamers, and people who disobey the Terms of Service.  Sploder will stay safe with Moderators.  There are many Moderators on Sploder, and I would like to join that list.


Powers of a Moderator:

A Moderator is armed with many powers to keep Sploder a better place.

There is the classic Warn, a power used to warn members who have done something minor.  I would use it when someone does a bit of flaming. 

There is a Ban, a power used when someone does something major.  I would use this if someone ignored the Warn and kept doing what they were doing.

There is also different types of Bans, such as the Perma Ban.  It is used to have users not be able to log into that account.  I would use it if someone keeps doing the major thing that caused them to be Banned.

There is the I.P. Ban.  It is used to have all accounts with the IP of the banned user be banned.  I would use it in case a banned user makes more accounts and uses them for a Ban Evasion.


I hope you like my application to be a Moderator.  Thank you for taking the time to read this.  If this gets denied, I respect your opinion.  Have a good day.

Mainsite name: Sonicwerehog234

What a MSM means to me:

A MSM (MainSite Moderator) is a mature sploder moderator who can govern the MSM and watch for inappropriate content to he/she can handle the issues appropriately.

I beleive I would be a good selection for a MSM for these reasons.

1.I am very mature and will handle any issues very nicely.
2. When using my powers i will be sure to have an appropriate reason for using them.
3. I will not abuse my powers because i know the consequences if i do.

These are the powers that a MSM will recieve when he/she has been promoted.

Warning:

A MSM will give out a warning to any members who violate a rule. The violation will not be so severe so they will be left off wit ha warning.
For example, spamming comments or flaming other members are violations that call for a warning. A message is sent to their homepage with the reason as to why they recieved said warning.

Verbal Warning:

A message to a certain member as to what they have done to recieve this warning. Everyone can see this warning.

Banning Members:

The worst punishments some can recieve of the Mainsite. Their are many fornms of banning which can go from a temporary ban to an IP ban.

Temporary Ban:

A Temporary Ban is issued to a certain member temporarily for violating a rule for the MS. During the ban, the user can't make games, awards, or any other content that a non-banned member can.

Permanent Ban:

If a member of the site makes a severe violation of a rule, the moderator can issue a permanent ban to that member.This makes it so that there is possible way to log into their account.

IP ban:

The worst kind of ban that can be issued to a sploder member. When an IP ban is issued, there is no way for that member to make another account.

IP check: A moderator can check a members IP to make sure if they have any alternate accounts or if they have avoided a ban. This power is also good to check for any inappropriate posts.

Game Flagging:

If a MSM is not sure of what to do with a certain member or any sploder content. They can report them/it to Geoff. And from this point he decides if it should be removed or not.

Blcoking Sploder Content:

If a moderator finds some sploder content offensive, they can blcok it so that only moderators can play/view it.

Deleting/Enabling posts:

A moderator can delete a post when they find it offensive or abusive and the deleted post will say [message deleted by moderator]. They also have the power to enable a post if it has been deleted.

Game Restoring:

Moderators can restore games if it has been accidentaly deleted.

MSM panel Accession:

Where a MSM can view all of their previous bans, warnings, blocked content etc.

Final Words:

I would be honored to help out the other MS moderators on this great website. I would love to help with all the issues that may go on here and I would hate to have this website unsafe for the people and members on it.

Thank you for reading my Application

1. I don't know, I guess it's just basically giving a hand to any members in need, helping out in tough situations and just overall making things easier for all of us. But what I think it mainly means is to help out the sploder community and the members of the site itself to prevent any negative events from occurring. Now, some believe that holding that moderator badge is something that will attract a lot of popularity, fill them with a lot of friend requests and expect to see 10 awards per day. Completely incorrect. Becoming an MSM is a task that not everyone's up for, you need to honour that commitment. Overall, what becoming a MSM means to me is supporting the community and making it a better place, and I'm willing to make that contribution.

2. Some of the main powers I know of:

- Bans and warnings: Used by most MSM's when a member starts a tough situation, examples could include: flaming, bullying, insults, etc. Upon a first or second offense a warning would be most necessary, since it tells the member what they did wrong and it reminds them not to do it again. They'll know they we're warned, since there will be a temporary message on their profile which goes away on its own after around 3 months or so. If all else fails, then I guess a ban would be necessary, but only as a last resort. Some bans could include: regular bans, I.P bans, and perma-bans.

- The moderation panel: Shows a list of flagged and/or reported comments on a small panel. That comment is shown as one and which member posted it. Next to that comment are two buttons: [ban] and [warn]. If action has been taken and the member was warned, though, the [warn] button isn't functional for that comment anymore. Banned members can always be unbanned using that panel. I'd check on it occasionally to see if any action needs to be taken and see what I could do.

- The hack log: From what I know, this is a panel that shows suspected hacks, and it works by showing which account was logged on to by what I.P, if that ever happens. It's a good place to discover any hackers and to stop such thing from ever happening in the future again, it also keeps the site itself clean and safer. Similarly to the moderation panel, I'd check on it occasionally to see if any action needs to be taken.

- I.P checks: One of the popular powers commonly used by some of the MSM's. You have to type in a username, followed by this it will result in all of the I.P matches (e.g I.P matches for user1: user2, user3, user4, user5, etc.) I'd get into the habit of using this if I'd suspect anything from a user or any other related reasons to this, in my opinion this seems like a good feature itself. 

- I.P bans: This type of ban is used in a serious situation. Sometimes, if a ban doesn't work out and the user tries to evade the ban by creating an alt, I.P bans work best. Banning a user in this method will disable them from logging on or creating a new account using that I.P address, these bans can sometimes be temporary. I.P bans will make sure that the user has no way of evading the ban and is forced to wait. I would use this ban on a last resort if I have already issued a ban, but the user persists and creates an alt to continue.

Perma-bans: Self-explanatory, but perma bans keep a user from ever commenting on that account ever again, permanently. I'll use this if serious action needs to be taken and the user simply won't come to a stop.

Final note:
Now my goal in this process is to just go with the flow and do what's necessary. I've already planned how I'll deal with explicit content if I ever encounter it. Warn first, ban later (if necessary). I just want everyone in the community to feel more secure and to find things easier, I'll go easy on the members.

1. I would say being a Moderator is a great privilege, I would be honoured if you guys thank this application. As the Moderator badge is most important while taking out all the bad guys who corrupt Sploder with all their explicit pictures, nudity, or inappropriate language.

2. The jobs of a MSM are as following.

Warn - As we all should know, Moderators have the ability to "Warn" people for a short period of time if they have done something terrible. Sometimes this disables you from sending awards or posting comments.

Ban - Ban is a lot worse then warn, as the user who is banned can not access their account for a short period of time. In other words, their account is limited.

IP Ban - IP Ban is to ban someone from have more then one alt (Alternate) account on the mainsite. This also applies on the forums.

IP Check - IP Check is to locate a specific user that has more then one mainsite account.

Permanent Ban - Permanent Ban the worst ban you can receive, this permanently limits your account so that you are never able to access it again, no matter what you do.   

I would use these powers in a sensible time, if the user is flaming calling people names or being mean to another user I will take action and stop them. I bid you a good day.

1. I would like to be a MSM very much, I would like to help out Sploder with warning and banning members that don't belong to this kids web-site. As you all know, there are much kids, even adults that join this web-site and try to troll, flame, spam, post inappropriate words, make inappropriate games and graphics. That's why Sploder has Moderators who protect other members. That is my reason, my goal is to be a MSM. I'd be thankful if you guys vote for me.

2. The MSM badge is a pretty powerful badge, as it's the symbol of the Sploder security. It has a bunch of powers, who help them in their job. The powers they own are:

~ Warn: This power is the most used one. When an user breaks a rule (such as advertising maybe) a MSM warns him. The following user will get a note saying that they're warned with the reason. The warn is here so the members could know what not to do in the future, as they can get banned.

~ Regular Ban: If an user at the first time got warned, and he does that bad thing again (that is, break a rule) a Mod will ban him. It all depends on what he did, if it was advertising twice he will gte banned for a few days or a week (sorry, don't know exactly). But, users could get a straight ban for a long time, or forever, if they do something really awful (such as hacking other members and changing the password, sexually disturbing them, etc.).

~ IP Ban: This ban is specialy for alternative accounts, or as we call them, alts. But not in all casses the alts get banned; if the alts are just for making games and having fun, then no. If they're for making fun of other members and hacking, then yes.

~ IP Check: IP check is to locate any member on the Sploder Main Site, and see what's his/her IP adress and anything about him/her.

~ Permanent Ban: or as we call it perma ban. If you have done something really off the limits as they would say, you will get a perma ban you will never access Sploder (that is only if you want to stay on your banned account, you could make an alt of course, but if you make it it'll probably get banned again with the power of the IP Check!)

~ The Hack Log: ah, the special log on the Sploder web-site. It helps MSM's to see who changed their IP Adress (that is, who is hacking, collabing, and other). It helps a lot to MSMs.

~ The Moderation Panel: a special panel that shows who was recently reported/flagged, or, that is, games that have been reported or flagged.

- I would use those powers whenever I need them. We all know there are a lot of members who want trouble, and if I see any member who's flaming, spamming, hacking, making inappropriate graphics, games or comments I'll do something quickly. I would be a friendly moderator and I would help anyone who needs it.

Thank you for your time,

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.
Thank You for reading,

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.

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.

Post by: Gt on February 18, 2013, 12:32 pm
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.

Post by: Transcendent on February 18, 2013, 01:46 pm
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).

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.

Hey guys, EthGamma here. You probably know me from the MS (because of my good looks haha), and I'm here applying for a moderator position. I hope you find it informative and an enjoyment to read. I am a trust-worthy person, some of you will probably know that.

What being a MSM means to me:
Becoming an MSM means a lot to me. I have wanted to help the Main Site for ages and now with the renewed system, I can! With the moderator power, I will be able to help the Main Site to be an environment where users can go on any page and see that any messages which are violating the ToS are removed/flagged, same with games and graphics. I will be a reliable MSM and you will lucky to have me on the Sploder Staff Team.
 
A written list of the powers an MSM has, and how they are used:
A moderator has many powers to help with the Main Site. I know them, and I know the abilities of each. Here they are:

-Banning users: The most commonly known power that a moderator has. If a user is violating the ToS, I can ban them for certain periods of time, including a perma ban and IP ban, which are only used in serious cases. Perma bans are bans that lock the user out of their account, and IP bans stop any account being accessed from that certain IP address.

-Warning a user: If a user is doing something wrong like bypassing the censor etc, I can simply warn them, so the user knows not to do it again. Well, hopefully...

-Verbally Warning: This isn't a proper warn, but it’s telling a user they're in the wrong via messaging them on their page, so they know if they do what they did wrong again, they'll be banned. Moderators are lucky, because with the badge the user knows they’ll be banned if they disobey the ToS, and any user would probably dislike that because Geoff made this site so awesome and addictive!

-Deleting comments: This is removing a comment from vision by any user, usually ones with bypassing or extreme hate mail. If will appear as [Message deleted by moderator] so that users can clearly see someone who’s bypassed, or so they know to watch out for the user’s messages.

-Deleting Graphics: This is self explanatory, removing a graphic because of it's content. You can usually tell a graphic is violating the ToS by simply looking at it.

–Deleting Awards: On that topic, they can delete awards as well.

-Reporting a user: This is letting all of the other Sploder MSMs know about a user in the wrong.

-Flagging a Game: Letting Geoff know about a game to be removed because of content that violates the ToS. If you ever see Geoff playing a game with a rude title in the dashboard on the side, you’ll know that a moderator is doing his/her job to the best.

-IP Checking: This is for alts while in a ban or reasons to check for alts. Very useful.

-Quarantining: Putting a user under watch. A very useful tool, because moderators can see a user’s actions.

-Voting on MSM's: This is for if they are Soldier+ and a MSM is in voting. I can’t reveal too much because that’s classified!

-Access to the MSM panel: To see the latest bans, warns and other moderation information (it even rhymes :O)

-Game Restoring: When a user deleted a game by accident, and they want it back, they can simply ask a mod to restore it for them...if they can. A user is very lucky if they can get their game restored, because sometimes a game can’t be restored.

-Viewing Graphics: A moderator can view anyone’s graphics, so if a mod finds an explicit graphic, they can delete it.

-The Hack Log: A moderator has access to the Hack Log, where the IP address of a log in is tracked, so they know if any hacking is going on.

I will use the correct action for the time that it suits, not when I want to use it. I will be a reliable moderator, as I would like to help the many moderators of the website.

I hope you guys found this application unique to the others in this thread, and it helps me become the successful MSM I want to be. Thank you for your time.




Eat your veges,

EthGamma ;]

Hello guys, I'm blackhole2 and now I'll write some queues for being a MSM and being your truly opponent.

As you know, I'm always serious, and I'm mostly online on this site, so I give to you guys and gals a chance to read my application.
I very love to help people, and nobody can take away from me this feeling. I'm not so popular on the Forums, but if you have heart guys, you'll read this before you'll get bored of it.
I love to protect people, who are in a trouble with others, and I don't really care if he did bad or good. Well, you can see, I'm a forgiving person, but it doesn't mean you can utilize me. To clarify: I can be a good Moderator, who loves this job so much! -One day, if I'll get promoted, and I know I can. I believe in myself.-


What I have to do?
a.) Warning. It means, I have to tell to the person, stop that very bad thing or leave that situation before something very bad will happen with him. I can tell him in Pm-s, but I'm not afraid of to tell him in the General.
b.) The banning. It's the worst thing you can earn! Don't stimulate the Moderators to ban you, so the best way to resist it: Never do anything bad, for example putting naked photos on the General, or flaming with the others. It's against the rules, and once you were banned, you wouldn't have a chance to post anymore. So please, I have to say again: Never do it. (There is a way to unban yourself, but it's in the PoW camp, where I've never been before.)
c.) Perma ban. You will get this, if you do the bad thing twice or more times. Etc.: Bypassing.
d.) I.P. check. Moderators can check your I.P adress, and if you have an alterante account, despite the fact you didn't get a permission, they can ban you or your alt obviously.
e.) Disable and Enable comments. It means, you can "ban" the person for a short time, while the person is thinking about, what did he do...
f.) Removing messages. Yes, if a Moderator saw a flame war or something on the Main Site, he would delete the insulting comments. ( That's when it says 'Message deleted by moderator'.)
g.) Helping people to get back the games. If you deleted a game accidentaly, and you've already published it, you have a chance to get it back from the Moderators. I don't really know how does it work, but it's possible.
 
Well, guys the final word:
I can be a truly Moderator, who will help in everything, but don't judge me if you don't know me enough.
Thanks for reading this,
Blackhole2

Post by: Prince Daydream on February 19, 2013, 05:33 pm
Hey everyone, I'm Daydream. Here I am applying for moderator, hope you enjoy reading my application.

What being a MSM means to you:

To me, being an MSM does not only mean having the power of a mod and using them whenever I wish. Being an MSM means keeping Sploder safe. I have seen many kids bullying each other on the MS, and I give them a little warning, like "Hey, don't bully. It's against the rules." MSMs are always happy to help other people, and I am always happy to help. I am not the kind of person who will go around banning people I hate, and that's the kind of moderator that people don't even like. Becoming an MSM is my dream, it really means alot to me. Not because of the special powers, like I said before, but because I can step farther and give the assistance that people need.

List of MSM powers and how I would use them:

First off, a mod has the power to end fights, stop bullies and hackers. Normal members may attempt to do so (like me), but it isn't really effective.

Warn- Before banning someone, most moderators may choose to give them a warning. A warning disables people to comment and send awards. I will warn people if they post an inappropriate game, bully someone, or send hateful comments on the MS. In other words, I will use the warn for first-time offenders who have done nothing too serious.

Ban- A ban doesn't allow the user to access Sploder. To me, the length of the ban depends on what the person/offender has done. E.g: if the person has received 3 warnings from me (or less, depending on the severity of the action) I will ban him/her depending on the action and the severity of the action.

Perma Ban- A Perma Ban is a permanent ban. I will use this when a person has gotten a ban from me 3 times (or less, depending on the severity of the event).

IP Ban- Same as a perma ban, except the banned user cannot make anymore Sploder accounts. I will use this if a member has made several accounts to go around the ban and make more trouble.

IP Check- Mods use this power to check one's IP address. To me, this is to be used when a member has done a questionable activity that seems similar to another member that has been banned. I will also randomly IP check other people to see if they share IPs with any banned accounts.

Deleting Messages- This power is used to delete any comments that are spamvertising, or any others that are hateful, or rude. Spam comments such as "jjjjjjjjjjjjjjj" are removed.

Game Restoration- Mods have the power to restore games that are accidentally deleted or purposely deleted (and the user wants that game back).

Final Note:

I promise I will make an excellent moderator, mainly because I am very friendly with people. I don't fail to impress, and I will do my very best to fulfill my duties as a Main Site Moderator!

Thanks for reading!

Post by: Flippenout on February 20, 2013, 12:46 pm
Hello there everyone, Flip here. Today I will take my time applying for Moderator. Here I go.

1. What becoming a Moderator means to me:

 To become a Moderator would mean a lot to me. I've had a lot of experience on Sploder (especially the MS) and I feel like I could make Sploder a better place by just doing some simple things. Sploder is a great place to have fun, but there also needs to be safe. Safety must come before fun. I’m also very reliable, and trustworthy. Not only that, I would be very active working around the clock and I would take action whenever necessary. If I became a Moderator, I would make sure that Sploder would be safe for kids of all ages. I would make Sploder a better place by just doing some simple things. Becoming a Moderator would mean so much to me, because I really love Sploder. And a lot of other people out there do as well. I would love to have the privilege to make Sploder a safer place.  To sum it up, here are some reasons I should become a Moderator:

1. I'm mature and reliable.
2. I've had a lot of experience on Sploder.
3. I know that Safety is first.
4. I would be active and be on the watch 24/7.

Those are just a few reasons to why I should become a moderator.


2. What a Moderator does:

A moderator has lots of responsibilities along with a lot of power. Here I will show you what powers a Moderator has, what each of them do, and in what situations I would use them.

  -Warning: A moderator has the job to give out a warning to any violation in the rules including spamming, advertising, bypassing etc. If a user receives a warning it will show him what he did wrong, so he hopefully would not do it again. Warning users is a very important MSM power, and isn’t very severe.

Ban: A ban can be necessary in more ‘extreme’ circumstances. Though is is not as severe, has IP ban it defiantly isn’t good. If a user continues to violate a rule, he will eventually be banned.  Basically, after a couple warnings the user will be banned. Bans can range for a variety amount of time depending on what you violated.

-IP Ban: This steps it up a notch and may be necessary in very extreme cases. When is this used? Well, lets say that there is a member who continues to get banned however, uses alts to avoid the ban. That is when IP Bans will come in to play.

-IP Check: Checking IP’s will come in handy, when you have any suspicions the user has lots of alts to avoid bans. This will catch people, and not let them get away with lots of alts.

Deleting Messages: A MSM has the power to delete messages, with any inappropriate content or bypassing in them. This power keeps Sploder safer for children, as it may not be suitable for children.

 Deleting Awards: Mods also have the power to delete awards, with any inappropriate content such as bypassing.

Deleting Graphics: An MSM has to make sure that all the graphics are clean and none of them are dirty. By dirty, I mean if any graphic has inappropriate content such as pornography or if the graphic contains bypassing it must be deleted.

-Restoring Games: Say a user deleted a game on accident, that is where this power comes in handy. Moderators have the power to restore games when requested.

Reporting Users: Mods have the ability to report users, if the user has done anything wrong or violated the rules. Basically, reporting a user just notifies other mods to keep an eye on the user and possibly take action.

Flagging Games: Whenever a Moderator sees a game that is somehow inappropriate and is not fit for all ages, he should flag the game. Moderators cannot delete games, as only Geoff is allowed to do that. Flagging a game, though, may get Geoffs attention to take action and delete the game ASAP.

MSM Panel: A Moderator has access to a secret place known as the “MSM Panel.” Here a moderator, can see the latest bans, warnings etc. to keep in the know. Can be a very helpful place.


-Verbal Warning: In a Verbal Warning, the MSM doesn’t actually ‘warn’ the user but instead is telling the user to get on the right track, otherwise a ban may be necessary. The user can be sure that they will be banned if they keep going down that path, because the user knows that you’re a moderator and you have the power to ban him.


   Alright, that will wrap it up. I hope I’ve shown you guys that I’m Moderator worthy. ;)

Adieu.

A moderator is an all powerful spot on the Sploder staff and I am going to make a small but simple list of what a moderator means to me

A moderator is one of sploder's hardest workers and check the site if there is anyone bullying on other members so they could give them a warning or ban them if they have multiple warnings.

Mods can also check on a person's IP. This means that they can check if someone has an alt, which they can use if they can if they get banned. But if someone's being naughty on their alt/ that means the moderator can IP ban them, which means they can't go on sploder ever again.

I would love to be a moderator because, I can use these powers to good use and not go crazy and ban a-l-o-t of people in one sitting, like one guy who got corrupt of the power of being a member of staff(he's banned and he got wiped of the board of staff)

I hope this small yet satisfactory piece of work satisfies you.

 What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:Being a Moderator means something to me because I get to help keep sploder safe and fun for everyone.Sometimes I see a LOT of inappropriate comments about sceptile, geoff, youngcaliman,and I want to put a stop to it.Also I see many inappropriate games.Sometimes the other Moderators don't find them but I would like to help. I think the moderator position would fit me because I am loyal and active on sploder(about 1 hour a day),and I will do my best to stop all the inappropriate stuff.Everyday I see the everyone's games,graphics,and comments and I see a lot of swears on Justin Bieber.I am very calm,mature,and experianced. If I were a MSM I would help face the people who break the rules and terms of service.
     Powers of a MSM: Moderators have powers like giving an IP check,look at all reported games,and give everyone a warning if it is there first time they wrote something inappropriate.
IP check: means you can find a sploder member who has already been banned and created a different account,and you can also can check if they are hacking.
     Permanent Bans: means you can ban a member forever and they cant do anything about it because you repeated something you shouldn't have.
    Warnings: A lot of people do things wrong but there are lots like spamming comments and games,or advertising your games on other peoples site. A warning tells you if you do this again you will be banned. It is a good way to warn someone that you cant do this on sploder.
  Disable Comments: sometimes you can give the person a warning and don't allow him or her to make comments for a time that you choose.
    Reporting Comments,Games,and Graphics,and Awards: Moderators can't delete games but this way they can see the inappropriate games such as nudity and sex games and graphics.They can delet mean comments. Inappropriate comments are reported.
    Banning: You can ban a person who breaks the rules or terms of service.After you get 2 warning you get banned.
   I hope you promote me because sploder is my favorite hobby

What being an MSM means to you:

At the most the meaning of holding this position, to me, is gaining the ability to shift things along a bit and to help our community, making it a more enjoyable, satisfying and a safer place for everyone so that every member is comfortable and more concerns being taken away from the community. Quite often I find the rules and/or the terms of service to be broken by some, examples could include: bullying, flaming, insults, and such. One of the main positives of becoming a moderator are that I would be able to deal accordingly with this kind of behaviour and serve the right punishment, this would let me enforce the rules of sploder to decrease the likelihood of them being broken. I feel that this position is something that will really change my fate. Normally I'm finding that many members here on the forum consider me a good friend and a nice member, I want to make something more out of this by becoming a moderator and satisfying all their needs, so that those in need can use the site freely without the need to worry about cyber bullies or flame wars. My feeling about this, is that this seems like a big contribution to the community. I feel that when you make such a large contribution it is a commitment you'll have to make if you truly want to keep the role, and I am willing to make this sort of commitment, since it would be a great help to everyone and make sploder a better place.

Powers:

There's quite a few perks to the job, and those perks are all new powers and privileges (not to be abused). One of the main things moderators are equipped with are main site bans and warnings, and there's more to it than it sounds. Warnings are something that'll kick in if a member commits a first or second minor offence, or simply a minor violation of the terms of service. Thanks to the invention of this, members can be told what they have done wrong instead of going directly for the ban. Bans are a 'last resort' type of power, upon multiple ignored warnings or continuous negative actions these would be the best type of punishment to suit for a user, another good reason for a ban would be a major offence of the terms of service. Evasion is impossible here, the moderators have their ways. I.P checks (discovering any alternative accounts made on the users connected computers) will make sure a user is not evading a ban by proceeding onto an I.P ban soon afterwards, making sure that their troublemaking ways have been suspended and that no more harm can be caused. Upon serious offences to the rules I would issue a permanent ban, self explanatory but something that disables a user from ever logging back on. There's more than just bans in a moderators power, though. Serious incidents can be flagged to the admin (geoff) by moderators only so that he may review it and decide upon what happens. Restoring accidentally deleted games and removing comments and/or graphics are some of the other powers I would know of.

Final notes:

The job of a MSM is not an easy task, it requires a lot of dedication and experience to be highly experienced in this sort of job. When it really goes down deep, there's no room for feelings. Friend or no friend, whenever justice is necessary, it must be served no matter what. Complaints about bans being 'unfair' when in reality they we're should be non-existent for moderators. An MSM may end up with a lot of requests on his/her main site page, but it's just something that they will have to manage. If an MSM can cope with all of this, then they have proven themselves worthy. Another note to keep in mind, the more main site users hate a mod for those 'unfair bans' (in reality fair), the better the job they are doing. The badge isn't something to show off constantly, it doesn't make you look or even make you super popular, although believed by most, this is actually a false fact.

The reason why I have spent my time making this application is because I want to show my potential and to give myself a chance that I am, in reality, worthy. This is the perfect opportunity for me to make a great contribution to the community and to improve the quality of everything. I want to help out not because it will make me look great, but because it will make sploder look better. A massive thank you for reading this, I hope you have a great day and, I guess I'll be seeing you later! Bye!

To me a ms moderator is a mature friendly user that has powers capable of many features that are used on a regular basis.

A moderator can delete/disable a comment that a user has posted

Delete inappropriate awards or graphics

Send a game to Geoff ready for juvenile deletion

Check the hack log for ms hacks that are occurring

Ban users that are spamming, flaming or swearing "any other form of misbehaviour"

Ip ban users who have committed a serious case or a repeat offender

And lastly but not least, warn inappropriate users.

If I was to be a moderator, I would definitly do my best of work, maybe even better than my job at reviewing. It would mean a lot to me, becoming a moderator (#nolife). For a while, I have been longing to become a moderator; I'd promise not to use my powers incorrectly and make sure I'd do my best job. Now we have this chance; my closest chance of ever becoming a moderator.

~A Moderators Powers~

An MSM has a vast amount of powers, through warning people to permanently banning people. A moderators job in a nutshell is to protect the main site of all that is bad, and to protect the many young souls wallowing in this site today. We want them to be happy and safe here. Here are some of the MSM's powers:

Banning Users: A moderator will be able to ban members if they spam a lot, bypass, flame, make inappropriate games, graphics and/or tags, etc. That user will still be able to make games and graphics and even make friends through their ban time, but they won't be allowed to post comments, just in case they begin to flame with the moderator - everyone deserves a chance. The moderators can also permanently ban a user or just IP ban a user.

Warning Users: If say a user only posts a moderate amount of spamming, a moderator will just warn them so that they don't do it again. Warning isn't as bad as banning, as they will be able to place comments. But, if the user does any more bad things on this website, they may be banned.

IP Checking: If a user that is perma banned makes another account (take sceptile for an example), a moderator can easily IP check them so they can alert other moderators to take a look at the member if they have let this user off. If they do something wrong, they will perma ban that account as well. Also, if a member has an alt and say the member with that alt doesn't want it, they can ask a moderator to IP check them to see if it actually is their alt and they will flag that member to geoff to perma ban that account.

Flagging A Game: If a moderator finds an inappropriate game and the member who made it refuses to delete it, a moderator will flag the game to geoff so he can delete it, as no moderators have the ability to remove a game.

Quarantining A Member: If a user is being rather bad (or makes games and graphics like sceptiles) a moderator will make the member quarantined. This will put the user under watch of all 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.

If I was given the title of moderator, I would try my utmost to keep sploder safe, and to help everyone being bullied. I truly understand that being moderator isn't just fun, it's a very hard task, and requires a LOT of responsibility, and maturity, from the person given the honour. I believe I am ready, and I hope that people see that.


~what being moderator means to me~

To me, being moderator means helping the people of sploder with their problems. Whether that be bullying, inappropriate games, or simply questions they may have about sploder.

I have some experiance helping the people of sploder, as  when I was on the main site I would go around looking for people to help, so I've seen how terrible people can be, and how horrible they can be to others.

So if I was given the responsibility of moderator, I believe I could help the people of sploder more easily.


~what powers a moderator has~

Warning

If a member of sploder is behaving in an inapropriate manner, such as swearing, bullying, or spamming the moderator has the power to give that member a verbal warning. Doing so will prevent the member from easily posting more messages for a period of time decided by the moderator.

Banning

If the member does not heed the warning, and continues to break the rules, the moderator will have to ban him. This means he cannot post another message whatsoever. He can still access his account, and make games, but he cannot post anything.

IP check

If the moderator suspects another member of being the same one he banned, then the moderator also has the ability to check his IP. This will tell him if the two accounts are alts. As using an alt to get around a ban is also against the rules.

IP ban

As a final resort, the moderator also has the ability to IP ban the member. This means that he cannot access his, or even make any other acounts. This should be used, as I have stated before, as a final resort, and should be used with great care.


This is just a few of the abilities the moderator has, but they are his main ones. I truly believe I am ready for this responsibility, as I would greatly love to help the people of sploder to the best of my abilities. And this, would give me much more power to help them. Thank you.

I want to be MSM a lot because then I can help make Sploder a better place and make sure nobody is breaking the rules. There are many people who break the rules on Sploder by hacking or making innapropriate games, and just generally breaking the rules. I want to help stop them by warning or banning or doing whatever it takes to make sure people do what the Terms and Services say.
There are many things a moderator can do to help Sploder:

1. One of a MSMs abilities is to warn a user. Main-site Moderators can either warn or verbally warn members if they are breaking a rule. This way, you can maybe keep the member from doing whatever they did again, that way if they didn't know they were doing anything wrong, they can find out and get back on track. Verbally warning someone is like a warning except a moderator simply tells them they are doing something wrong, but this warning should be taken just as seriously. Warning someone is telling a member that they did something wrong, it usually appears in a strip on their homepage. (I think)

2. Another thing MSMs can do is to ban somebody. Bans can range from a few days to forever. During bans a member can't post any comments and I don't think they can send awards either. People can get banned for various things such as ignoring a warning and continually doing what the warning told them not to do or doing something so bad that they get banned instantly.

3. Staying on the topic of bans, a Main-site Moderator can IP ban someone for doing severe crimes such as posting porn. IP bans prevent a user from ever logging onto Sploder again. This means the user can't even log onto alts.

4. To find out where a user is located, mods can IP check them.

5. A mod can also flag games that are somehow breaking the Terms of Service. Then Geoff could delete that game.

6. One great power a moderator also has is the ability to restore a game in case a member accidently deleted that game. You can find restoration requests at this link: http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/
But not all games can be restored, for example, an unpublished game.

7. Another thing MSMs can do is to delete an innapropriate graphic or even an award.

8. Mods also have access to the Hack Log, this tells Main-site Moderators if somebody has changed their IP address which can happen if they hacked somebody, is collabing, etc.

9.The Moderation Panel is a place where you can see any recently reported games or flagged games.

If I get Moderation powers, I promise I will use the powers to help Sploder and stop people who have broken the Terms of Service. That concludes my application.

What being a MSM means to you:

I think being an MSM is a duty to protect the site from spammers, hackers, and other rule-breakers (bypassers, inappropriate-game makers, etc.). What would being one mean to me? A lot, actually. I've been wanting to be one for a long time, about since last thanksgiving. I think I would make a qualified MSM because I am active and often browse the MS, reporting any offenses I see.


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

Textually Warning People

Textually warning people does not actually do anything to their account. It only gives them a warning asking them to stop. Moderators use this for very minor offenses, such as light emoticon spam or something like that.

Warning People

A warning on the Sploder Mainsite is a bad thing to have. You cannot comment [if you have one] without entering a captcha code. Also, your name is listed on the Moderation Panel under "Warnings" with a reason for your warning.Mods can also list a custom reason. Moderators use this for a first offense of some kind. (Usually not for spambots, though)

Banning People

Bans are also bad to have. They make it so that you cannot comment or send awards, at all. Moderators use this technique for very serious stuff, repeat offenders, and spambots. Just like warnings, moderators can list a custom reason. If you are banned, you can use the Ban Appeals to try and give a reason why you should be unbanned, though.

IP Checking

This power is the ability to see what accounts match the IP of the member you IP check. It should be used in situations where (A). Someone says they were hacked. (B). You banned someone and another account is showing very similar behavior.

IP Banning

This ability bans all the members under the same IP. They cannot comment or send awards, just like a regular ban. It should be used when a member is creating alts to do ban evasion, or when a member has a lot of alts that he goes on regularly to do bad things on.

Flagging Games and Comments

This ability allows moderators to flag games and comments to Geoff for deletion. It should be used in situations when the game is offensive (ex. naughty bits or swear words), or when the comment is offensive (same things, mostly).

Access to Mod Panel/Hack Log

The mod panel is a place to keep track of all the latest bans and warns. You can also see reports there, reporters, and blocked IP addresses. It has another part called the "Hack Log" where moderators can see where a user logged in.

Restoring Games

Moderators can also restote deleted, published (non-private) games. This should be used when someone wants their game restored and it does not contain offensive content.



Thank you for your time and please read this application all the way through if you have not,

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator allows me to improve Sploder. It helps Sploder to be a better, safer and awesome place. Being a MSM requires a great responsibility because you have to be sympathetic and responsible. Being a moderator gives me the opportunity to deal with those people who break the rules. I've noticed that many people tend to create games that are inappropriate such as "Kill Justin Bieber" or "Level 250 Hack." I consider myself an active member who is able to use the MSM powers correctly. I will never ban anyone without having researched a little more. I have personally reported some users such as Jeff9 for blackmailing.

Powers:

IP Check: MSM can check your IP. They are up to date with your alts. You can also IP ban someone, this means that they can´t create a new account with the same Wi-Fi.

Warnings: All persons who are registered on this website are human. This means that we can make mistakes. Warning is a way to warn the user not to make a mistake again.

Perma Ban: Perma Ban is the worst thing you can get a long with IP ban. You can´t do anything if you´re Perma Banned. You can Perma ban someone If he has blackmailed or he  keeps making mistakes.

Disable and Enable comments: Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Reported Graphics, Comments and Games: As we know Moderators can't delete the games but they can give warnings. If there is a game containing sex, badwords, etc it can be reported to Geoff. This is because there are children playing this website.

Banning: You can ban one who has broken the rules more tham 2 times.

Final Notes:

Being a MSM requires a great responsability. If I get accepted, I will try my hardest and I will be very active. A moderator also needs to deal with various offenses, such as spam, bypassing, and inappropriate comments, making it a job of many varieties.

I have always wanted to make Sploder a better place. Please, give me a change to demonstrate my abilities and I will not disappoint you.

Hello guys, I'm blackhole2 and now I'll write some queues for being a MSM and being your truly opponent.

As you know, I'm always serious, and I'm mostly online on this site, so I give to you guys and gals a chance to read my application.
I very love to help people, and nobody can take away from me this feeling. I'm not so popular on the Forums, but if you have heart guys, you'll read this before you'll get bored of it.

I love to protect people, who are in a trouble with others, and I don't really care if he did bad or good. Well, you can see, I'm a forgiving person, but it doesn't mean you can utilize me. To clarify: I can be a good Moderator, who loves this job so much! -One day, if I'll get promoted, and I know I can. I believe in myself.-


What I have to do?
a.) Warning. It means, I have to tell to the person, stop that very bad thing or leave that situation before something very bad will happen with him. I can tell him in Pm-s, but I'm not afraid of to tell him in the General.

b.) The banning. It's the worst thing you can earn! Don't stimulate the Moderators to ban you, so the best way to resist it: Never do anything bad, for example putting naked photos on the General, or flaming with the others. It's against the rules, and once you were banned, you wouldn't have a chance to post anymore. So please, I have to say again: Never do it. (There is a way to unban yourself, but it's in the PoW camp, where I've never been before.)

c.) Perma ban. You will get this, if you do the bad thing twice or more times. Etc.: Bypassing.

d.) I.P. check. Moderators can check your I.P adress, and if you have an alterante account, despite the fact you didn't get a permission, they can ban you or your alt obviously.

e.) Disable and Enable comments. It means, you can "ban" the person for a short time, while the person is thinking about, what did he do...

f.) Removing messages. Yes, if a Moderator saw a flame war or something on the Main Site, he would delete the insulting comments. ( That's when it says 'Message deleted by moderator'.)

g.) Helping people to get back the games. If you deleted a game accidentaly, and you've already published it, you have a chance to get it back from the Moderators. I don't really know how does it work, but it's possible.
 
Well, guys the final word:
I can be a truly Moderator, who will help in everything, but don't judge me if you don't know me enough.
Thanks for reading this,
Blackhole2

Hardly any popularitry, they
Have 0-2 thanks.



Now look at the likes of epico and gamekid etc, the members that are popular. They have 6-15 thanksj.




See what I mean? Noones voting fairly, everyone. Is just thankinsg the popular members. This is just a popularity contest.



How I think this can be fixed?;

Keep it this way .but instead of everyone thanking; select a base ofk recruiiters and any app they like, the rest of recruiters vote on it. Agin 3/2 majority required .

 



If you agree thank this post

The reason why no one thanks your app is because you have not gained enough respect on the forum and because you have not shown that you can handle responsibility, not because you aren't popular.

What being a moderator means to me:
To me, being a mod isn't about the power. No, its about keeping a community safe and happy. For example: If there is a user who is posting hurtful comments, I'll be on their case. And if it ever becomes a big problem, I'll do the deed I have to do.
Being a moderator is a gift, a position you can have by Geoff's side, so that you can keep his sacred website happy. A moderator isn't fun and games, its like being a soldier in a war-fighting for our righteous website forever.



A mod isn't banning people on the spot. It's warning them about what they're doing and making sure they stuck to it. As for games, it's a very similar method:Tell the user that They are breaking the game rules of sploder, and that if they don't remove the game, I will have to take action.


Being a mod also means sticking to your place. Even if you feel bad for having to do what you have to do to a member, you know its worth keeping the community here secure. Even if my best friend here breaks a big rule, I won't hesitate to do my work. This is another reason why I hesitated to do this, but I would rather stop a bad member than watch him take over.


I also must use my powers wisely, not playing around and banning random users, and I won't block a game because I didn't like it or because it was hard, I shall take pride in my powers, and use the correctly, for everyone's sake. Showing all members I deserve my place, and I will do my special deeds as soon as possible.


Helping members out will be a big part of me being a mod. When a user asks me an important question, I will help them out as soon as possible. If a certain member is feeling very down in the dumps, I will make sure they can Stand back up again!

Moderators also have the ability to IP check. This allows us to see what other accounts a related to a certain user, and it helps us make sure a banned user hasn't come back to haunt sploder, as this would be more work, and it shows us if the user would have to be... Perma banned.


I will do everything I need to keep sploder the hearty place it is, even if it means taking big chances, I won't hesitate for a moment.
This is all I have to say, I hope it works for you guys!
thank you very much for reading, see you guys later! ~Cashin95

Post by: Prince Daydream on February 27, 2013, 05:41 pm
Hello once again, I'm Daydream. Here I am applying with my second application, hopefully this brings more luck.

What being a MSM means to you:

MSM has been my dream MS job, more wanted than Reviewer and Editor. I am always happy to help people, and I don't swing my ban hammer around like a child playing Whack-A-Mole.

Often I do see kids bullying each other on the MS, and I give them a little warning, like "Hey, what's the need to bully?" Right after I see these situations I wish I could have the powers to intervene and successfully calm a fight, because the 'offenders' don't listen to members who don't sport a MSM badge.

I don't want the rank of MSM because of the fancy powers, I want to give people the assistance they need and maintain Sploder's good reputation.

List of MSM powers and how I would use them:

First off, a mod has the power to end fights, stop bullies and hackers. Normal members may attempt to do so (like me), but it isn't really effective.

Warn- Before banning someone, most moderators may choose to give them a warning. A warning disables people to comment and send awards. I will warn people if they post an inappropriate game, bully someone, or send hateful comments on the MS. In other words, I will use the warn for first-time offenders who have done nothing too serious.

Ban- A ban doesn't allow the user to access Sploder. To me, the length of the ban depends on what the person/offender has done. E.g: if the person has received 3 warnings from me (or less, depending on the severity of the action) I will ban him/her depending on the action and the severity of the action.

Perma Ban- A Perma Ban is a permanent ban. I will use this when a person has gotten a ban from me 3 times (or less, depending on the severity of the event).

IP Ban- Same as a perma ban, except the banned user cannot make anymore Sploder accounts. I will use this if a member has made several accounts to go around the ban and make more trouble.

IP Check- Mods use this power to check one's IP address. To me, this is to be used when a member has done a questionable activity that seems similar to another member that has been banned. I will also randomly IP check other people to see if they share IPs with any banned accounts.

Deleting Messages- This power is used to delete any comments that are spamvertising, or any others that are hateful, or rude. Spam comments such as "jjjjjjjjjjjjjjj" are removed.

Game Restoration- Mods have the power to restore games that are accidentally deleted or purposely deleted (and the user wants that game back).

Hack Log- Mods have access to the Hack Log, a log that keeps track of hacked accounts. I will use this when a user has suddenly changed his/her behaviour (e.g.: nice yesterday, then rude and ignorant of the rules today).

Flagging Games To Geoff- If mods see an inappropriate game that many members have reported, moderators can flag the game so that Geoff can delete it. This power's description explains when I would use this power.

Final Note:

I promise I will make an excellent moderator, mainly because I am very friendly with people. I don't fail to impress, and I will do my very best to fulfill my duties as a Main Site Moderator!

Thanks for reading!

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator will give me a chance to help with this forum. Sploder will be better and its full potential will be shown. Being a moderator shall allow me to enforce the rules, and bring about justice. MSM is a job that needs many qualities. It requires you to deal with multiple antics that may have got out of hand. I will put my heart, soul and anything else to this job. I pledge to do all of the deeds needed. I am active now and will be in the future. I see everything that happens on this site. I will be open towards peoples feelings, look on both sides of the story. I will not be aggressive nor passive, I will be as balanced as possible. I may be one of Sploder's younger members, but I am keen to help this site in every way I can.
 
Powers:

MSMs have powers, some not as powerful as others. Their jobs must be done relevantly. Those who choose to abandon the fair rules set can be punished in several ways. For the more severe matters banning may be necessary. If it is a minor crime, a warning would seem more fair. Moderators can also check a user's I.P address, (the unique group of numbers that identifies each internet-attached computer) so that they cannot try to sneak in to make a alternative and continue their antics. If this happens consecutivly a I.P ban may fit this perfectly. This stops them making any other accounts whatsoever. Moderators can remove/sensor comments that may offend members. If members want to take out their rage in a game Moderators can flag inappropriate games. Moreover, if they are even more offensive, it may be necessary to delete the games. If members want their deleted games back Moderators can restore them back to their beauty.

Last remarks:
MSM is a tough job. It requires some very useful social skills. Patience, a calm mind when under pressure to not be afraid when under pressure, and not power craving. A lot of Moderators will get angry comments such as, "why did you ban so and so" and "please ban someone", true it may be annoying, but Moderators need to ignore the pressure. Various offences need to have action taken such as spam, bypassing, innappropriate comments and more. It may give you popularity and fame, but the bright lights must not get in the way of a moderator's quest. That badge isn't a sign of fame, it's a sign of true maturity.

I've been here for two years, and I've seen many things, some of the things I've wanted to help and been limited to what I can do, If get that badge, the jobs people have been asking for me to do can now be dealt with. Case closed, thank you for reading.

If I was to be an MSM, I would be bewhildered with joy, as I could help members in need of it.  I would most certainly handle my MSM powers correctly, and without a doubt would use them correctly. Being an MSM means a lot to me, as I for one can gain more respect from other members of the forum, and could help them in need of help. I'd love to keep little children safe from harm on sploder, whether someone would be spamming or bypassing; I will always make sure that everyone has a great time.

~An MSM's Power~

An MSM has a vast amount of powers, through warning people to permanently banning people. A moderators job in a nutshell is to protect the main site of all that is bad, and to protect the many young souls wallowing in this site today. We want them to be happy and safe here. Here are some of the MSM's powers:

Banning Users: A moderator will be able to ban members if they spam a lot, bypass, flame, make inappropriate games, graphics and/or tags, etc. That user will still be able to make games and graphics and even make friends through their ban time, but they won't be allowed to post comments, just in case they begin to flame with the moderator - everyone deserves a chance. The moderators can also permanently ban a user or just IP ban a user.

Warning Users: If say a user only posts a moderate amount of spamming, a moderator will just warn them so that they don't do it again. Warning isn't as bad as banning, as they will be able to place comments. But, if the user does any more bad things on this website, they may be banned.

IP Checking: If a user that is perma banned makes another account (take sceptile for an example), a moderator can easily IP check them so they can alert other moderators to take a look at the member if they have let this user off. If they do something wrong, they will perma ban that account as well. Also, if a member has an alt and say the member with that alt doesn't want it, they can ask a moderator to IP check them to see if it actually is their alt and they will flag that member to geoff to perma ban that account.

Flagging A Game: If a moderator finds an inappropriate game and the member who made it refuses to delete it, a moderator will flag the game to geoff so he can delete it, as no moderators have the ability to remove a game.

Quarantining A Member: If a user is being rather bad (or makes games and graphics like sceptiles) a moderator will make the member quarantined. This will put the user under watch of all 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.

~Defining Spamming And Flaming~

Spamming is a repeated post, that has been posted say about 20 times. There are many types of spamming, such as emoticon spamming, trying to get people to play your games by posting 'play my games', and evn spamming dating requests. Some aren't as serious as others, however most of them can get you banned.
Flaming is basically insulting a member with arrogant behaviour. It's pretty much arguing with a member excessively using insults and possibly colourful vocabulary that really isn't appropriate for this site. Some are for silly reasons, and it can be worth a ban or warning.

This has been EpicO's MSM application. If I do become a moderator, I will most certainly do my best. Thanks and goodnight.

Post by: Prince Daydream on March 03, 2013, 05:35 pm
Hello once again, I'm Daydream. Here I am applying with my second application, hopefully this brings more luck.

What being a MSM means to you:

MSM has been my dream MS job, more wanted than Reviewer and Editor. I am always happy to help people, and I don't swing my ban hammer around like a child playing Whack-A-Mole.

Often I do see kids bullying each other on the MS, and I give them a little warning, like "Hey, what's the need to bully?" Right after I see these situations I wish I could have the powers to intervene and successfully calm a fight, because the 'offenders' don't listen to members who don't sport a MSM badge.

I don't want the rank of MSM because of the fancy powers, I want to give people the assistance they need and keep Sploder an active and friendly community.

List of MSM powers and how I would use them:

First off, a mod has the power to end fights, stop bullies and hackers. Normal members may attempt to do so (like me), but it isn't really effective.

Warn- Before banning someone, most moderators may choose to give them a warning. A warning disables people to comment and send awards. I will warn people if they post an inappropriate game, bully someone, or send hateful comments on the MS. In other words, I will use the warn for first-time offenders who have done nothing too serious.

Ban- A ban doesn't allow the user to access Sploder. To me, the length of the ban depends on what the person/offender has done. E.g: if the person has received 3 warnings from me (or less, depending on the severity of the action) I will ban him/her depending on the action and the severity of the action.

Perma Ban- A Perma Ban is a permanent ban. I will use this when a person has gotten a ban from me 3 times (or less, depending on the severity of the event).

IP Ban- Same as a perma ban, except the banned user cannot make anymore Sploder accounts. I will use this if a member has made several accounts to go around the ban and make more trouble.

IP Check- Mods use this power to check one's IP address. To me, this is to be used when a member has done a questionable activity that seems similar to another member that has been banned. I will also randomly IP check other people to see if they share IPs with any banned accounts.

Deleting Messages- This power is used to delete any comments that are spamvertising, or any others that are hateful, or rude. Spam comments such as "jjjjjjjjjjjjjjj" are removed.

Game Restoration- Mods have the power to restore games that are accidentally deleted or purposely deleted (and the user wants that game back).

Hack Log- Mods have access to the Hack Log, a log that keeps track of hacked accounts. I will use this when a user has suddenly changed his/her behaviour (e.g.: nice yesterday, then rude and ignorant of the rules today).

Flagging Games To Geoff- If mods see an inappropriate game that many members have reported, moderators can flag the game so that Geoff can delete it. This power's description explains when I would use this power.

MSM Panel/Page
MSMs have the ability to access another page for MSMs only to see who's been banned or warned. I'll check this page as often as I can, and this will help me and other moderators determine what kind of ban a user will receive (e.g. warned once by one mod, then warned again by another, and received a ban from another, got it removed, then warned by another mod)

Definitions

Spamming

A message that means absolutely nothing. It has no purpose except annoy other members and clog up message boards and threads.

Flaming

The act of insulting another member or multiple members. Flaming is considered the Internet word for 'put-down'.



Thanks for reading!

What being an MSM means to me:

Taking on this role would be an amazing experience and a great contribution towards the sploder community. This role gives me the chance to pull in front things a bit if they slip through the cracks. I would also be able to soothe the needs of those members who need help and make the whole site and the forums a better and free experience for them. Enforcing the rules is another thing becoming an msm could do for me. Rules are made to be broken, but getting this role will help prevent it. I am aware of some of the basic rules, such as 'no flaming or spamming allowed', or 'no posting hurtful messages'. The slightest break of a rule could get me to engage and shift things along a bit. Some of the higher-ups (and privates xD) would consider me a pretty mature member, a nice person to be around and someone that would be a good moderator. To make something more out of all of this, I am applying for this rank. I've been waiting to make a deep commitment into the communtiy so I could settle the tasks and put everything in its right place, this role is the closest I could get to accomplishing this.
 
Powers:

Yeah, I know quite a few of some of the main powers. The most popular and commonly discussed (alongside i.p bans) would be bans and warnings, every new msm (and old, of course) is fitted with this power. Warnings will create a message on the warned users profile which only the warned user will be able to see. A warning is just a friendly reminder to a member of the main site that they have committed and unacceptable action and that it shouldn't be repeated again. This will put the user down to his feet and get him to understand this place some more. Bans, self explanatory, but with a slight twist. Being banned means you can still log in, the only difference being you cannot post messages or comments. These are only to be used upon serious offences, and I mean serious. There is two more types of bans. Perma-bans, self explanatory. I.p bans block the users i.p, meaning they may not log in or create an account using that computer network ever again (unless temporary). Game restoration and deleting graphics and comment is another well known power, flagging games being the final I know.

Spamming and flaming:

Easy to define, however worth going through. Spam is basically posting stupid and pointless comments or messages in random places repeatedly for the purpose to annoy other members. It is considered rude behaviour and something that may be punished by a warning, followed by a ban if ignored. Flaming is hating on another member by posting hate messages on their profile (e.g death threats, major bullying), and I would consider it a serious incident.

Final notes:

This isn't an easy job, it's not something that everyone will be considered for. It's rather a challenge that only the best can pass. Bragging and showing off the moderator badge is just a no. It doesn't show any maturity, opposite actually. Of course holding this badge is a big achievement, but it's nothing to continually show off. This badge will put a lot of hard work in your sploder experiences and make it a bigger challenge. Also, it doesn't matter on what cases a punishment should be used. As long as it is necessary, it must be fitted (e.g banning my best friend for a reason is something I might have to do if it was necessary).

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed and good luck to anyone else who applied!

What being a MSM means to you:

If I had the powers of Mainsite Moderator, I would take more responsibility for my actions. It would be an outstanding experience that I'd never forget. I'd be able to help others and keep Sploder a safer place, as I hate sitting back and watching users be bullied. Sploder is a great site that needs to be protected, and I'd love to help do this. Rules are made to be stuck too, not broken. If I was a Mainsite Moderator I could help make them be stuck too. Whenever they're fights or hacking, I'd be willing to help in any task.

List MSM Powers and how I would use them:

A Mainsite Moderator has various powers. They can be used in many ways and not just in one. I would use these powers when needed too, and I would not abuse them for my own willing. It could be a warn, a ban, or even a IP ban in extreme cases. (That would be a last resort) Here are some that pop into my mind.

Warning: Warning is when warning a users when they have broken the rules for the first time. This warns the user not to do it again. I would use warnings when a minor offence has been committed for the first time.

Banning: Banning is when a user would be ban for a period of time/permanently. This would normally come after a warning, but in some cases a ban will come straight away if necessary.

IP Banning: An IP Ban is a permanent ban from Sploder all together. It bans the user completely from Sploder. This is used in very extreme cases. I would use this if someone broke the rules repeatedly or if they used multiple accounts to avoid a ban.

IP Checking: IP checking is when you can check a users IP address and see what accounts share the IP address. I would use this if I believe someone is avoiding a ban using multiple accounts or in cases of Hacking.

Delete messages: Deleting messages is normally when bypassing/spam has been commenced. Example: "kjdsfhjfed" I would use this if spam or bypassing has been committed.

Flagging a game: Flagging a game is when a game that is inappropriate for Sploder is flagged to Geoff. I would use this when a inappropriate game for Sploder has been made.

Restoring games: Restoring a game is when a user has accidently deleted a game. I would use this if a user requested their game to be restored.

Access to the MSM Panel: Accessing the MSM panel is when you can use all of these powers. (Ban, Warn, IP Check, IP Ban, ect)

Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming: Spamming is a useless type of messages that are repeatedly posted. Example "play my games" (repeated 20 times) Would be spamming. You would normally be warned for spamming followed by a ban if carried on.

Flaming: Flaming is a example of a fight with name calling or rude/ignorant behavior. Normally a warn would come after flaming or sometimes in a serious case a ban. Flaming is a useless thing to be involved within a argument.

This has been my MSM application. Thanks for reading and I you enjoyed. If I get the position I will not abuse it's powers. :)

Post by: Red on March 04, 2013, 08:15 am
I would like to tell you, why I think I'd be worthy of moderator badge. 


What being moderator means to me

I've been on sploder for quite some time. In my time here I've seen a lot of bullies, spammers, and innapropriate behaviour. I spent quite some time helping the moderators to find these people, however, when I had found someone, I often had to wait a while for the moderator to act. And by that time the damage had already been done. So, if I was given the honour of moderator, I believe this would give me the power to help the members of sploder even more. I truly want to help, so this is why I am quite passionate about this position.

What powers a moderator has

The moderator has a wide array of powers which help him/her to protect the members of sploder. These include:

Warning

This is a verbal warning which gives the offender a verbal warning, and an extra message to type if he makes a post. This means he cannot post messages as easily, and would prevent spammers from spamming on such a large basis.

Ability to view the report list

The moderator is also able to view the report list. This is a large list of posts that have been reported. He can use this to find inappropriate messages, and delete them. Possibly giving the sender an added warning.

Deleting posts

If the moderator finds an inappropriate message, he has the ability to delete it. This may prevent other people from seeing it.

Ban

If the offender does not heed the verbal warning,  the moderator will give him a ban. This means he cannot post another message using his account, but may still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects anpther member of being an alt of an already banned member, using this alt to get around his previous ban, he has the ability to IP check these two members. This will prove whether or not they are the same.

IP ban

This should only be used as last resort. The IP ban will ban the members IP from sploder entirely. This will ban the member, and any alts he may have. It will also prevent the offender from making more accounts.

Flagging games to geoff

If The moderator find an inappropriate game, he will likely tell the maker to delete it. If this member refuses, the moderator can flag this game for goeff to delete it himself.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming

This is when a member is attack another member, insulting them and often using profanity. This should be stopped by either giving one, or both members a warning.

Spamming

This is when a member will constantly post the same message over and over again to different people or the same person. this could be for the following reasons:

Advertising: He will advertise his game or website in order for multiple people to play it, or join it.

As an annoyance: He may also spam one or more members continuously purely to annoy them.

Final note

All of this, I would try my best to stop. If I was made a moderator I believe I could help sploder much more than I could possibly do, without this honour. 

Thank you.

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot for me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the comments and newest games to check that there is no inappropriate things also I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

Perma Ban:
You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Reported Graphics, Comments and Games:
As we know Moderators can't delete the games but this is a way to make them see inappropriate games which includes Sex graphics or this kind of words. There are children playing this games so we are able to report them and maybe Geoff may see them. Inappropriate comments are reported so I can see it if I am a Moderator.

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.


 
Note: I am almost 8 hours Online in a day so it will be a easy stuff for me. It will be a honor to make a Sploder a better and safe Website. Gerald is now out.
Title: Re: The Boondocks: Moderation Movement (MSM Recruitment)
Post by: Rox on March 04, 2013, 12:18 pm
This is my second application as you should know.

1. I would like to be a Moderator because I would make this site a better place, when someone asks me "Can you ban this user?" I will check the users comments, if I think they are warn/ban worthy I will take action. If they continue then it will lead to a ban and so on.

2. The Moderator badge is the most important badge and and most powerful, as it has the most power and responsibility then the other badges. Now, since I have clarified that the Moderator badge is most important I will tell you their powers on the Main Site.

Warn - This is a regular warn to express yourself to how the user is acting towards other members. For example if the user is being mean to another user. You might send them a warning with the message "Please do not be mean or aggressive to other members." You can warn someone if you think the thing they have done wrong is actually warn-worthy before you do it because someone tells you to. People might say "Ban this person because he/she called me a splode" For all we know he/she could be right. (No offence to anyone.) Oh, and a warning may disable you from commenting on other members profiles, or from sending awards to communicate as you are able to send little messages through awards. 

Ban - This is the somewhat worse version of warn. If the user has shown he/she is idiotic and disobedient then a Moderator may ban him/her for a short amount of time. You don't want to be banned trust me. Even though I've never be banned. I know it's a horrific thing to experience, this is why everyone should act normally and speak how they would to a friend. This is not the worst thing that you could experience because there is on3 more type of ban, a lot more horrific then this. If you receive a Ban, just be happy you didn't receive a Permanent Ban

Permanent Ban - This is the most terrible thing you could ever experience within Sploder. This disable you from even accessing your account. You're banned forever, if you are perma-banned and the Moderator IP bans you. Then you are locked away from Sploder for eternity, you can never access your old account, you can't make a new account. (Alt, If you had a previous account.) If the Moderator unbans you. (Which he most likely won't.) Then you are lucky, most people who get perma-banned are never unbanned. So you never ever want to experience that.

IP Ban - IP ban is used for stopping aggressive members, or people who have been violating the terms of service from creating a Alt (Alternate) account.

IP Check - This is a option for scouting around for Alts, people may have several different accounts within Sploder. Moderators may have suspicion and IP check a user to see if they have any alts.
 
Hack Log - This is used for explanatory purposes and used to see who is being hacked, who is collaborating etc.

Moderation Pannel - Moderators have a special Moderation pannel for uses. Say if a user reported a comment or a game, the Moderator they reported it to should take care of it and deal with the situation.

Flagging Games - Moderators also have the ability the "Flag" games. This is for those inappropriate games scattered around the Main Site. Moderators can flag games to Geoff (The creator of sploder.) So that he can delete them. (Since he is the only person that can delete them at the moment.)

Deleting Messages - Moderators also have the ability to delete comments, the comment is not fully deleted, but the message the the Moderator deleted will show up as "[Message deleted by Moderator]"

I would use these powers in a terrible situation. If a member starts a riot within Sploder, I will swoop in as soon as possible and deal with it.

Thanks.

What being a moderator means to me.

 

A moderator is a member on sploder who: helps Geoff maintain sploder, make sure members follow the rules and help other members on sploder.

A moderator has a huge responsibility. To make a good moderator, you have to be active and really help out as there are many members on sploder today who think they can break the rules without facing a consequence and new members on sploder and members who need help, need to be guided through sploder so they understand what they should do/be doing.

A moderator must be serious in all situations, whether it is helping members or explaining to a member who has broken the rules, etc, etc.

A moderator needs mature. As moderators are looked up to by members on sploder, being a mature moderator would teach sploder members how to act on sploder. Also, it means that other moderators will like you and think you are doing a good job.

Moderator's should Never abuse their powers. Geoff has made you a moderator and trusts you. The worst thing to do is abuse your powers as it will have your job taken away, most likely a warning or more and members will lose all their respect for you.

Moderators must be reliable. Lot's of members rely on moderators from new members who need advice and help on sploder to high in rank members like Geoff who rely on you to do your job successfully.

Moderators should control members efficiently. Moderators should calm the member down if they are angry in a situation. The member will most likely have some respect for you if you show them that you are giving some of your time to them.

 

 

What a moderator does.

 

Banning ~ This is probably the most used power of a moderator. This is the power to stop members from doing certain things on sploder. Before banning a member, you must get full evidence that they have actually broken the rules. Then, the moderator must explain what the member has done and why they're banned/warned.

 

Un-Banning ~ A moderator can un-ban a member maybe if they think the member didn't deserved to be banned. This is probably connected to the ban appeal as that is the place where members ask to be un-banned.

 

Warning ~ This is where a moderator leaves a message underneath their avatar where they log on and go to home. This can only be seen by moderators and the member who has been warned. Warnings can be removed from member’s pages.

 

Quarantining a member ~ This is where a moderator can see what the member is posting and doing all the time.

 

Verbal warning ~ A moderator can give a verbal warning to a member telling them not to do something. This is different from a normal warning as everyone can see it.

 

I.P Ban ~ In serious cases, a moderator can ban a members I.P address so they cannot log in with that device or make other accounts on that device.

 

I.P Check ~ This is a useful power to moderators as they can check if a member, who has been banned, tries to make an alternative account when they have been banned.

 

Deleting Graphics ~ This is a power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

 

Deleting posts ~ A moderator can delete posts anywhere on the sploder MS. But only if the post breaks the rules or offends another member.

 

Flagging a game ~ This is where a moderator can flag a game, that might break the rules or offend other members, which will be sent t Geoff, so he can decide if it's worthy enough to be deleted.

 

Restoring games ~ A moderator has the ability to retrieve a game that another member has maybe accidentally deleted the game, deleted it because they thought it might break the rules or deleting it because they didn't want it but regretted it.

 

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ Although a moderator can delete most of these things, the moderator maybe unsure if it's worthy to be deleted/flagged. So, they report it so another moderator can check.

 

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ A moderator can reply to members who have been banned to listen to their reason why they should be un-banned.

 

Access to moderator board ~ This is where a moderator can find out the latest: bans, warns, deleted posts/graphics/games.





Spamming and flaming.

Spamming - When a member repeatedly posts filling up someones page or something else. Spamming can be: annoying to members because it may take them to find a comment they would like to read and when a member has spammed and maybe a member hasn't reported it, a MSM finds it hard what member's pages the member has spammed on and takes a lot of their time.
Flaming - Flaming is where members argue with each other and say nasty things or things people disagree on. Flaming can get easily out of control if many members are involved. Flaming can be: Upsetting because some things said to a member may have been offensive or personal to the member. Annoying because moderators will have to spend time speaking to every member involved to get their sides of the story and to find out more information. Maybe: how it started.

 

 
Final note.

 

Why should you vouch for me? You should vouch for me as I know how hard a moderator’s job can be. However, I'm up for anything the stands before me. I want to make sploder a safer place and make member aware on how to stay safe on sploder and what to do in serious situations. I have experience of internet safety because of school teaching and resources research. I'm a very active member on sploder and responsible and reliable. I'm mature enough to handle serious situations. I'm calm and don't get offended easily. So, if another member says something offensive to me, I will not get angry and retaliate; I will just simply, yet maturely, report them. Or if I get the amazing chance to be a moderator: ban or warn them, depending on the type of offence they have done to the sploder rules. I have been on sploder for 1 and 1/4 years and feel that I know enough about sploder to moderate it. In that period of time I have also seen and dealt with members who break the rules or who are upset.

If a member is upset, I straight away try to calm them down and make them feel better and calmer. That goes the same for a member who breaks the rules.

 

 

Thanks a lot for reading my application.

 

 

I promise that if you thank this post, I will make sploder a better place overall

If I was to be an MSM, I would be extremely happy and would be surprized by the fact that I actually passed voting, as I could help members in need of it.  I would handle my MSM powers correctly, without a doubt. Being an MSM means a lot to me, as I for one can gain more respect from other members of the forum (preferably the more popular members of sploder), and could help those in need of help. I'd love to keep little children safe from harm on sploder, whether someone would be spamming or swearing; I will always make sure that everyone has a great time here on sploder, and I'll make sure they are protected from anything bad.

~An MSM's Power~

An MSM has a lot of important powers that are needed for the safety of the members of this site, through warning people to permanently banning people. A moderators job is basically to protect the main site of all that is bad, and to protect the many young souls wallowing in this site today. They want them to be happy and safe here, as we don't want to lose many people here because someone swore at another member or offended them in any way. Here are some of the MSM's powers:

Banning Users: A moderator will be able to ban members if they spam a lot, bypass, flame, make inappropriate games, offend someone else or their family (eg; through racial abuse), make innapropriate graphics and/or tags, etc. That user will still be able to make games and graphics and even make friends through their ban time, but they won't be allowed to post comments, just in case they begin to flame with the moderator - everyone deserves a chance. However, if they continue to make innapropriate games or graphics, their ban will be longer. The moderators can also permanently ban a user or just IP ban a user if they continue to damage the site.

Warning Users: If say a user only posts a moderate amount of spamming or make a slightly innapropriate graphic, a moderator will just warn them so that they don't do it again. Warning isn't as bad as banning, as they will be able to place comments. But, if the user does any more bad things on this website, they may be banned.

IP Checking: If a user that is perma banned makes another account (take sceptile for an example), a moderator can easily IP check them so they can alert other moderators to take a look at the member if they have let this user off. If they do something wrong, they will perma ban that account as well. Also, if a member has an alt and say the member with that alt doesn't want it, they can ask a moderator to IP check them to see if it actually is their alt and they will flag that member to geoff to perma ban that account.

Flagging A Game: If a moderator finds an inappropriate game and the member who made it refuses to delete it (or can't because of the high amount of views), a moderator will flag the game to geoff so he can delete it, as no moderators have the ability to remove a game. The user will probably be banned or permanently banned.

Quarantining A Member: If a user is being rather bad (or makes games and graphics and/or games like sceptiles) a moderator will make the member quarantined. This will put the user under watch of all moderators, just in case they continue to do bad things that could damage the site.

Blocking Games/Graphics: This is where a moderator will remove an innapropriate game or graphic from the main site, but won't be deleted.

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.

~Defining Spamming And Flaming~

Spamming is a repeated post, that has been posted say about 20 times. There are many types of spamming, such as emoticon spamming, trying to get people to play your games by posting 'play my games', and evn spamming dating requests. Some aren't as serious as others, however most of them can get you banned.
Flaming is basically insulting a member with arrogant behaviour. It's pretty much arguing with a member excessively using insults and possibly colourful vocabulary that really isn't appropriate for this site. Some are for silly reasons, and it can be worth a ban or warning.

This has been EpicO's MSM application. If I do become a moderator, I will most certainly do my best. Thank you for your time.

What being an MSM means to me.

If I was a MSM I would be amazed that I even got one thank.  I would be able to ban/warn hackers, spammers, flamers,  and people who violate the Terms of Service.  With that done, Sploder will be a friendly place to all people who want to have fun while making epic games.

The Powers of a MSM.

MSM's have many powers.  It's like they are secret agents for MI6 or something.  They have all different types of gadgets to make Sploder a nice place for people to hang around and make games.  This is the list of powers.

-Warn: A MSM can warn a member if they do something minor.  I would use this if someone stared a very small flame war.

-Temporary Ban:  This is used if someone ignores a warn and keeps doing something bad.  I would use this if someone spams, flames, or hacks.

-Perma Ban:  A perma ban is a permanent ban on one account.  I would use this if somebody STILL keeps violating the TOS.

-IP Ban:  An IP ban is a ban that bans all members with the same IP of someone.  I would use this if someone was making alts for a ban evasion.


-IP Check: An IP check is checking a member's IP and seeing if they have any alts/other accounts for a ban evasion.

-Game Flag:  This is a power where MSM's can flag an inappropriate game for Geoff to delete.  I would use this if someone made a game that violates the TOS.

Flaming and Spamming.

Flaming is where somebody insults the other person and is against the rules.  Spamming is somebody who posts the same thing over, and over, and over again.

Thank you for reading.  If I just happen to become a MSM (which probably won't happen, but it's worth a show) may you put the Moderator badge on Beefburito?  Thank you in advance.

What being a moderator means to me:

      Being a moderator doesn't mean to me that I can just sit back, relax, and ban all of the noobs that get on my nerves. Yes, it would be very tempting, but that isn't what a moderator's job is. Being a moderator means helping the people who are getting tormented, teased, and bullied. I hate watching all of the mean messages being wrote and not being able to do anything about it, so that's when being a moderator would come in handy, as giving a punishment to the user would hopefully teach them a lesson. Sploder is a website targeted towards young children and such content such as threats and curse words would not be good for the children to see. Without moderators, Sploder would be a chaotic place, not a fun for everyone website like Geoff wants it to be. Being a moderator isn't a game, it is serious business.

Powers, what they do, and the appropriate situations to use them in:

Warning: A warning is basically a message that the moderator posts on a users page telling them if they are breaking a simple rule, as in using a minor curse word, spamming, advertising, etc. However, other users can not see this. Some users are new to the site and don't exactly know the rules, so a warning would be much more fair, but if the same stuff keeps happening, that could result in a ban. If a user has been warned, they can not comment without entering a code.

Verbal warning: Another type of warning where a moderator just posts a message on a users page, but all users can see it. This is used if a user is breaking a small rule, like slight spamming.

Ban: If a user continues to do the same stuff that got them warned, that could result in a ban. A ban is when you lose your privilege of writing comments. Also, creating inappropriate graphics or games, rude/insulting messages, bullying, could also result in a ban. Hopefully, that would teach the member to get their act together and obey the rules, so no more trouble would be caused.

IP Banning/checking: Moderators have the ability to IP check a user. An IP is a numerical label given to each device that uses Internet Protocol for communication, such as a computer. Therefore, if two users have the same IP, the moderators know that the users are the same people or use the same computer. If a user is banned already, and the moderators are suspicious of another user, the moderators are able to check that user's IP to see if they are the same user, then banning that member again, but this time, not letting them create any more accounts with the same IP, or accessing their account. That is called IP banning. Also, if a user claimed that they were hacked, moderators can check if the account was being accessed from a different IP.

Flagging: Moderators have the power to flag a game or comment. If it breaks the rules, like inappropriate content and insults. However, flagging the source doesn't mean deleting it, it means flagging it for Geoff so he can delete it.

Restoring a game: If a user has deleted a game on accident, moderators have the great ability to bring the game back, if it does not contain inappropriate content.

Quaranting: If a member is making graphics or games that break the rules, writing rude comments, etc., moderators can make it so that all moderators can "keep an eye"  on that user.

Mod panel/Hack log: The Moderator panel is a place that sploder moderators have access to, where they can see reported games/comments, the latest bans and warns. There is another part in the Mod panel called the hack log, where moderators can see where each user logged into their account from. 

Perma ban: A perma ban, short for permanent ban, is given if a user has broken the rules many times even after they were warned, and banned. The account can not be accessed ever again.

Defining flaming and spamming:

Spamming: Spamming is the act of posting something obnoxious repeatedly to get attention or disturb others.

Flaming: The act of sending nasty messages, that are rude and offensive, which leads to the trading of insults between users. Soon, if enough people start flaming, it could turn into a flame war.

Final notes:

If you've read through this whole application, I want to thank you. If I were a moderator, I would use my powers to help sploder, so it can be a friendly site that users can enjoy.

If I were to become an MSM, i would most definitely take the job seriously and make sure that my responsibilities on here come first. Sploder is a "kids website" and I wish to help keep it kid friendly so that all young users can enjoy it in a safe environment. I would hate to have someone exposed to things like swearing or other inappropriate things on a site such as this one, so I were given this responsibility, I would contribute the most I possibly can to help make this place better.

-The MSM Powers

A MSM has a lot of power's that are needed for the safety of the website itself. They add to the responsibility and can range from warning a member to banning them. They are given these power's so Sploder can be assured safety for the thousands of people roaming the site this instant. These are some of an MSM's powers.

Warning: If a user post's a moderately bad comment, spam, or makes a piece of inappropriate content for example, a graphic, the user may get warned by the MSM. They will still be able to post, but if they get a certain number of warnings, they will get banned

Banning: In the situation that a member bypasses, flames, makes inappropriate games or graphics, or spams a lot, they may get banned by the MSM. This power can range from a "Temporary Ban" to an "IP ban". They are prevented from making post's during the ban, but they are still allowed to make games,graphics and friends. The ban will remain longer if they make inappropriate games/graphics. This can also lead to a permanent ban. If they are perma banned, they are prevented from logging in until the MSM say's otherwise. If they escape a ban by making an alt, they can be IP banned. In this case, the alt will be banned and they cannot make another alt.

Ip Check: This power enables the MSM to check the IP of a user. They can check the number of user's with the same IP and even see if a user has made an alt.

Quarantining: If a user has misbehaved a lot on the site. A moderator can make this member quarantined. This makes that member under the watch of all moderators in case he/she misbehaves again.

Flagging a game: If a moderator finds a game to be inappropriate and isn't deleted by the creator, they will flag the game so that geoff can delete it.

Blocking Games/Graphics: This will happen if a moderator find's a game or graphic inappropriate. They can block it so that other members can not view it.

Access to the MSM panel: A moderator can check all of the previous bans and warning they and other moderators have made.

Spam: The act of a post constantly posted by the same member. Will usually result in a warning or a ban

Flame: When someone post's rude or offensive messages/insults to another member. May result in what's known as a "flame war"
 
I'm sure I would be a great addition for the Main Site Moderators. If I do pass. I will be sure to help with the best of my abilities.

What being a MSM means to me.

A MSM, to me, is the most important job on sploder as the lucky, yet hard working people, who have this power, keep the sploder MS members under control and also content. But mainly members.
I understand that being a moderator can be fun but pretty tough too. Like a real life job, you have to be mature enough and worthy to have it.
A moderator has a lot of powers that should NEVER, no matter how many reasons you have.
As a moderator can be a role model to many members on sploder, a moderator must be mature and calm for MS members to follow in their footsteps.
If I was a MSM moderator, I would make sure most members know what to do in situations like getting bullied on sploder. I know a lot about cyber-bullying through school and personal research.
A good MSM is active. The reason being is that there are thousands of members on sploder MS that need help or questions. There are only around one hundred moderators. So, the more active a MSM is, the faster things get sorted out like, ban appeal replies, un-bans and reports and more members will be satisfied.
A good MSM can sometimes be friendly too. Not too friendly, just showing a bit of thought on who you’re talking to can always calm a situation. If you are friendly, more members will like you and be interested in what you do. That way, not only are you making someone happy, you get another MS member who respects you.
Moderators have to loyal and reliable. Geoff and every other member on sploder counts on you to do a good job. Most members respect a MSM; you should at least be loyal to all of them. Lots of sploder members wait for MSM to help them; you should let them know that you will help.
Moderators must be serious in all situations. Whether they are warning a member, talking to a member who is upset by something or something else. The reason being for this is: a member could get the impression that you are doing your job wrong or that they think they may be able to keep you acting immaturely and try to get you to act like them. I don’t know. Anything could happen.
A MSM should have control over members. Not just to ban them. To calm them and make them act maturely towards sploder. The more you tend to ignore them, the more agitated and annoyed they get.


What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is a power where a MSM has the ability to stop a member on the MS from doing certain things. Moderator’s use this power when a member has broken the rules. In this situation, it is probably best to explain what the member has done wrong and how long they are banned for. Showing attention helps calm members down.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy task, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alt to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power.
 Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it.
Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.



Spamming And Flaming.

Spamming - multiple posts on people pages/games/reviews/etc. It can get annoying to many people. If it's someone's profile page, then it just shows multiple posts from the same person. That the member, who's profile has been spammed up, would like to see more important messages than one's that mean nothing to them. Spamming could upset people in certain situations. It makes fuss for the moderators because if the person has spammed lots of people, moderators get lots of messages themselves about spam. It then takes a while to find all the people's page the spammer has posted on and a while to delete the posts.

Flaming - Where two or more people argue over something. It could be anything. Example: religion. That is a common one. Flaming takes a lot of the moderators time because they have to get evidence and information on how it started, what really happened and more from everyone who is involved.

Both these things are pointless and waste time for lots of people.


Final note.

I know that a moderators job is hard, but I'm up for the challenge. I've spoken to moderators about information about MSM's so I know what being a MSM is like. If I become a moderator, I will make sure sploder keeps maintained and everyone has a nice time here. I will make sure that members who deserve it are brought to justice. Also, I am extremely active on sploder MS so I will be a good active moderator.

I promise, if you thank this post and I become a MSM I will make sploder a really nice place.

What Being a MSM Means to Me
In stepping forward to becoming a MSM, I swear to oath that I will adhere by all responsibilities that shall be put forward before me. To become a MSM would be a tremendous honor for me, a position which I will respect to the utmost standard. If I were to be promoted to MSM, I solemnly swear by oath that I will serve, protect and greatly contribute to the Sploder community and its people with utmost priority and will step up to the plate of responsibilities. I will help any fellow members in need when in times of hardship and will protect the Sploder rule. For these reasons, I believe that the responsibilities of the MSM should be past to me.

The Powers of the MSM

A MSM has many abilities which he shall wield with great responsibilities. Below are the list of which MSMs can do:

Warn: A MSM can warn any member who breaks the terms of service or has become a severe disruption to the sploder community. Members whom are warned have committed actions that are suitable for warning but are not major enough to result in a ban. Repeated behaviors however will lead to a ban which leads us into the next ability…

Ban: A MSM can ban any member who breaks the terms of service in a major way or is a repeated offender to the terms of service and Sploder peace. When a member is banned, they are unable to post. Note that there are three different types of ban: temporary ban, permanent ban and I.P ban. Most of the bans that are used on today’s members are temporary bans in which members will be unbanned after a certain amount of time, a responsibility which a moderator must take as well. A permanent ban is reserved for the most extreme members who have clearly broken the rules in an obscene way or has been banned many times already so in order to prevent the member from ruining Sploder peace any longer, they are given a permanent ban. I.P bans also exist and they work under the same clause as the other types of ban; the only difference being that they block the user’s I.P to prevent them from making alts or a.k.a Ban Evasion.

I.P Checking: The final ability that a MSM has is to I.P check members in order to make sure members are not evading their bans via creating multiple accounts. If a member is indeed evading their bans by using multiple accounts then a MSM has no choice but to I.P ban the member which bans any new account which uses the same I.P address.

Game Restoration: If a member accidentally deletes a game, then no problem. A moderator has the ability to restore the game.

Lastly, as per the requirement of the application, I will set forward the definitions of Spamming and Flaming:

Spam: To spam is to post several consecutive messages that say the exact same thing every time and that are both pointless and annoying. Pretty much no one likes it when you spam.

Flaming: Flaming is a altercation between internet users in which either one or all participants post hostile, bashing and insulting messages against each other, often laced in profanity. There is also a secondary type of flaming known as flamers, users who try to incite flaming amongst the members. Neither type of flaming is good and both at the end of the day will just usually result in punishment by whichever website it occurs on. In other words, it’s completely dumb and useless.

Final Words: A MSM has many abilities which s/he shall also wield with great responsibilities and shall be responsible for his or her actions. A MSM’s job is to make sure all members adhere by the terms of service and to punish those who don’t follow them. MSMs are highly crucial to peace in many websites as of what I’ve seen, sites that don’t have mods usually are highly chaotic as no one enforces the rules. By becoming a MSM, I swear to oath that I will protect and serve by Sploder rules and will use my abilities to help all members in times of hardship. Because of this, I believe that I should become a MSM.

Thank you for reading and understanding this post. Wish y'all a good day.

What being a MSM means to you:

Main site Moderator means many things to me. It means trust, respect, and helpfulness. If I was to pass for Main site Moderator I would do my best to help people who wanted help, and not sit back and watch people be bullied. Sploder is a fun place that needs to be protected, and I would love to be able to help protect Sploder in any way that I could. There is no point in just sitting back and relaxing when I could be able to help. Man site Moderator has always been my dream for Sploder and earning that job would make a dream come true. Users safety comes first on Sploder, and of course, them having fun and being happy.

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

There are lot’s of powers that a Moderator has, they all need to be used correctly and not to be abused and used with respect and when necessary. I would use all powers correctly and I would not abuse them to my own will and enjoyment, but I would user them to make sure other Sploder users are safe.

Warning:
A simple warn to warn the users about there actions and if they repeat they will be banned. I will use warning on a first offence or minor issue.

Banning:
A ban stops the user from sending comments to other users. This normally will follow after a warn. I will ban a user after a warn or if necessary a big issue.

I.P Ban:
A IP ban is when the user can not create any more accounts on their IP address. I would use a IP ban in serious cases/when necessary.

I.P Check:
IP checking is when a users IP address is checked. This would normally occur if a user has reported a hacking or suspect of multiple alts. I would use this in cases of hacking or multiple alts after a ban.

Flagging games:
Flagging games is when a game will be flagged to Geoff to be deleted. Normally when the game is inappropriate. I would use this if the game was not appropriate for the likes of Sploder.

Game restoration:
Game restoring is when a user has normally accidentally deleted a game and would like it back.  I would use this if a user requested their game to be restored.

Deleting comments:
Deleting comments is when inappropriate comments can be deleted.
Normally if they are spam. (like repeated “hfhsfkj” or have bypassing. I would use this if they are spam or bypassing. Or upset a user.

Access to the MSM panel
This is when a moderator can access the MSM panel to do jobs which include above. I would use this when needed too.

Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming:

Spamming are useless/pointless comments repeatedly posted. Example: (jjsdh posted 20 times) would be spamming. I would delete all spam comments because they are useless and pointless, and possible warn. (ban if been warned)

Flaming:

Flaming is when a certain amount of users argue over something pointless and bring bypassing/name calling into it. They would normally do this if they are not winning the argument or are annoyed at the other member. Spamming and flaming are both wastes of time.

What being A MSM Means to me

Being a MSM means to me Hard Work, and Responsibility towards the Sploder website to make sure that all members are safe and enjoying making games and having good times with their friends on sploder. I as a moderator vow that I will help any member in need of help and give fair punishments to the inappropriate members. I have thrived for the moderator rank for one year and I am determined to acquire the moderator rank! I will keep Sploder a website free of hackers, and free of inappropriate members and make the Sploder website the safest website that it can be!

List Of Powers A MSM Has

A MSM Has the ability to Warn, Ban, IP Check, IP Ban, Permanent Ban, And Restore deleted games. If a member is violating the rules and terms of service of Sploder, then I will make a warning go into effect to make that member aware to stop his inappropriate actions. I will only give a warning after coming to a fair conclusion which will result in a fair warning against that inappropriate member. If that member has become repentant for his actions, then I will take back the warning from that member. If a member is still violating the rules of Sploder, and is harassing other members, then after coming to a fair conclusion, I will give a fair ban to that member for a limited amount of time. If the member still doesn't stop after the Ban then it's likely for that member to get another longer Ban. But if that member is evading his Ban, meaning the member is fleeing to his alt then I would check the IP of that member and see if there are any other accounts on that members IP. Checking the IP means, checking the location in which a member is located. If a member is evading a Ban then I would after coming to a fair conclusion, would IP Ban that member meaning that all of his alts including the original account of that member to be banned. That member then can't come back to any of his accounts unless that member moves to another location. Checking IP's can tell a moderator if a member has any alts or if that member is being hacked by another member. If another IP is on another members IP, then that member is being hacked. And if that member is being hacked, then I would come to a fair conclusion and then give a warning to that hacker and if the hacker still does not stop hacking other members accounts, then I will give a temporary Ban to that hacker. I would permanent Ban inappropriate members that have been constantly violating the rules of Sploder even though they have received temporary warnings or Bans. If I Permanent Ban an inappropriate member, then that member will be Banned and that member has no control over that. If a member accidently deletes one of his games and wants the game back, then he would ask a moderator to restore his game and a moderator would restore the game for that member.

Spamming and Flaming

Spamming is when a member writes the same message over and over again in other peoples games or pages, and that can bother other members. In that case I would most likely give a fair Warning to that member who is spamming. Flaming is when a member get into a long argument with another member and in that case I would give a fair Warning to the member who started the flaming. Flaming is not a good thing to do at all, because the members who are arguing can get serious and can say curse words etc to each other.

Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it, and have a nice day!

What a msm means to me:Its great responsability first ,you must take the job serious,They bann and stop any members that violate the sploder rules,example showing pornography,insulting members spamming,  hacking,starting flame wars,or making inapropiate games.List of powers a moderator has:-Banninng members:Moderators must bann  members once they violate the rules,the moderator must give a warning to the member who is violating the rules,if the member keeps violating the rules,the moderator is forced to bann the member,if the moderator does not follow the rules and uses his powers bad his badge will be taken away,the regular bann will only be temporarily,ip bann means forever,-Ip check:At this way moderators will know the alts members have ,as well this lets moderators ip bann the members in extremely violates of the rules, Restore and delete games:if you want a game  you accidently deleted or other reasons, you can call a moderator to restore them, moderators can only delete games in extreme cases of inapropiate games,-Delete messages:Moderators have the power to delete messages in case of innapropiate words or insults. What reasons could be a member banned for:-spamming: its repeating words with no sense,-Flame wars:There are a union of members insulting thereselfs,Hacking:Entering a members                                                                                                       account without permission,just advice this may get you ip banned,if you give the member your password this isnt considered as hack,Inapropiate games or graphics:You may get banned for showing innapropiate games and graphics like nudity example or other type of                                                                                                                                                                                                                  inapropiate graphics,as well you can get banned for making hate games possibly,a example:the justin bieber hate games or others.Pornography:Well in my opinion I dont think we have to worry to much of that in ms though always be careful for porn graphics and stuff,this might get you ip banned,as well giving porn websites links. Hope you like my application.

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot for me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the comments and newest games to check that there is no inappropriate things also I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

Perma Ban:
You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Reported Graphics, Comments and Games:
As we know Moderators can't delete the games but this is a way to make them see inappropriate games which includes Sex graphics or this kind of words. There are children playing this games so we are able to report them and maybe Geoff may see them. Inappropriate comments are reported so I can see it if I am a Moderator.

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.


 
Note: I am almost 8 hours Online in a day so it will be a easy stuff for me. It will be a honor to make a Sploder a better and safe Website. Gerald is now out.

Hello. I am here to tell you why I think I'd be a good moderator. I am online almost all day everyday, (yup, I gots no life) and would love to help keep sploder a safe place.


what being a moderator means to me

Well, as I have  mentioned before, I truly want to contribute to sploder community. So I would gladly help in keeping sploder safe with the moderator badge. I have tried my best to help people on the main site with their bully problems, and other such thing, but, I can only really help them with the bully aspect by asking a moderator. And, by the time they can reply and do something... The damage has already been done. So, if I was moderator I could help those members so much more, without having to wait for another moderator. I would use my new powers wisely, and properly. This is what being a moderator means to me.

What powers a moderator has

Warning

A verbal warning to those who bully or spam, to let them know that they are doing wrong and a moderator is watching them. This will also give them an extra message to type when trying to post a message, to remind them even more what they do/did is wrong, and a moderator is keeping an eye on them.

Banning

If a member does not heed the warning, the moderator has the ability to ban him/her. This will mean he cannot post any more messages. He may still make games, however, so should still probably be watched in case of innapropriate games.

IP check

If a member is banned, he/she is likely to want to crate another account to get around this ban. If the moderator suspects a certain member of being an alt, he can IP check the two accounts to see if they're the same.

Flagging to geoff

If the moderator finds an inappropriate game, or an account that needs deleting for whatever reason, he can flag either of these for geoff to delete.

IP ban

If the offending member has ignored his warning, and tried to get around his ban with an alt, yet continues to offend, the moderator has the ability to IP ban that member. This will mean he cannot access his account, make games, post a comment, or even make a new account. This should only be used as a last resort.

I would not misuse these powers, rather, I would use them to the best of my ability to help sploder.

Define spamming and flaming

Spamming

This is to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder, or to constantly harrass a member with immature annoyance. This could be advertising his/her website, game, or asking for awards.

Flaming

Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder users, often involving the use of profanity.


Final note

As I have mentioned multiple times, but only to get the point across, I would use all of this to the best of my ability, to keep sploder a safe and child-friendly place.

                                                         
                                               ~Thank you very much for reading this.~

MSM Application:
Introduction:
Well, the competition looks tough, but hopefully my chances will be high. I know most people have forgotten who I am, and my chances have probably decreased by a whole lot, but anyways, here's my application:
What being a MSM means to you:
An MSM helps keep the main site clear of spammers, hackers, and other rule-breakers. I want to help with this by becoming an MSM. I believe I qualify for this role, even though I'm not the one who judges that. I am mature, and wouldn't abuse my powers and use them for my own good. I am active. Since I came back, I've came online everyday, and being active is important, as an MSM who barely comes on would not be able to spot the rule-breakers, thus not doing his/her job.

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

Warning - A warning is a message to tell a rule-breaker that he/she has broken a rule and carrying on may turn into more severe consequences. This would be issued to people who have broken a rule like bypassing, or spamming for the first-time. Of course, if they have broken the rule several times, a more severe consequence than a warning would be issued.

Banning - This is when a user is blocked from posting, making awards, and making games, but can still log in, play games and view posts. It blocks all methods of conveying a message to the public. All posting, making awards and making games allow users to convey messages. Users may be banned for a limited time. This is issued to people who have bypassed/spammed/insulted other users, multiple times after being warned.

Permanent Ban - Users who break rules like bypassing, spamming or insulting multiple times keep getting worse (by this I mean using bypassing a lot more, spam large messages, insult using racism, sexism, and get more offensive) can be issued a Perma-Ban. This is when the user cannot do anything with his/her account. They can't even log on. This may also be issued for any other harmful rule-breaking, like abusing powers to harm a user.

Un-Banning - Pretty self-explanatory. This is used to un-ban banned users, thus allowing them to do what they could normally do. It may be used on people who were banned only for a certain time.

IP Ban - This is the worst of all types of bans. An IP ban is the same as a Perma-Ban, except an IP ban bans users from accessing an account from the same IP as the IP banned user and bans them from creating another account from the same IP as well. Basically, an IP banned user is banned from the whole Sploder site, and cannot get into it in any way. This would be issued in absolute serious cases like breaking multiple rules multiple times, abusing powers for even worse reasons, abusing alts for your own benefit.

IP Checking - This is used to check an IP of a user, and may be used to find an IP to ban it or to check for alts.

Deleting Messages - This power can delete messages on profiles and games. This would be used when someone spams, posts insulting messages, or posts messages where he/she has bypassed..

Game Restoring - MSMs have the power to restore deleted games. This would be used when a user requests to restore a game they may have deleted for whatever reason. MSMs would decide whether it is suitable to be restored or not.

Game Flagging - I would use this if I found a game with inappropriate content like insults, sexual references, nude etc. This would send a notification to Geoff. Geoff would then see the game, decide whether it should be deleted, then take action. Other consequences may be given as well as the deletion.

Deleting Graphics - MSMs have the power to delete graphics with inappropriate content. I'd use this when I find graphics with nude, offensive language, or racism. Inappropriate graphics would be easy to find when making PPGs, and since I'm working on quite a few, I'd be able to spot them.

Access Moderating Board - The Moderating Board displays all bans, deleted items, warnings etc.

Access Hack Log - This is a log where MSMs can see which IP has accessed which account. This is used to find hackers, accessing other accounts. I would check this regularly and I'd use it when someone claims that they have been hacked. Another way of finding out whether someone's been hacked is by there actions. If a generally nice person suddenly became mean, or if a person suddenly started making inappropriate games, it'd be suspicious, and then I'd check the Hack Log.

Reporting - Both users and MSMs have this power. Reporting posts adds them to a list of reported posts. MSMs can view this list and then easily delete the posts in it.

Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming:
This is the act of posting loads of messages consecutively. These messages can be either advertising, e.g "Play my games and vote them!!!!" or messages with random content, e.g "oiuenciprewhbf". The advertising messages are to advertise, and the random content ones are to annoy people.

Flaming:
Flaming is the act of posting messages to rudely insult a member. This may include racism, sexism, bypassing etc, and this can be serious. This may happen for various reasons.

Final Notes:
Thanks for reading this rather long application. Sorry if I bored you to death! I understand an MSM has a lot of powers, and you guys wouldn't just want to give it to anyone. If I get this position, I promise to be in top form, trying to help everyday, and I won't abuse these powers. Thanks once again!

What being a Moderator means to me.

Being a Moderator (Or, MSM for short) is a great thing as Moderator is the most important badge contained within the MS (Mainsite) It is used for the protection of Sploder and keeping those corrupted twisted minds out of Sploder, this is actually a kids website so you wouldn't want someone to randomly come out of nowhere and start shouting swear words at other members, that is warn/ban material.

What does a Moderator do?
(Bonus Field)

A Moderator moderates the site and gets rid of inappropriate behaviour, basically anything inappropriate will be dealt with. Not straight away, because the Moderator might be offline or something. You never know.

The abilities Moderators have.

Here, it comes down to where I write the jobs/abilities Moderators have. This will be from minor to major.

Panel of Moderation - Moderators have access to the "Moderation Panel" this is basically the hideout for all Moderators, this is a panel that is enabling Moderators to do what they can.

Hack Log - This is self-explanatory and used to locate members who are collabing, hacking etc.
 
IP Check - Moderators have the power to IP check you, this allows them to see if you have mainsite alts.

Flagging a game - Moderators can also flag games to Geoff to see if he deletes them. (Geoff can only delete games at the moment.) The game only gets flagged if it is inappropriate or offensive.

Deleting Comments - Moderators also have the power to delete comments, a deleted comment is only a minor offence, but it's still bad. When a Moderator deletes a comment the comment is not permanently gone, the comment the Moderator deleted will show up as "[Message deleted by Moderator]"

IP Ban - Moderators can IP ban people, this disables them from making alts on the mainsite.

Warn - As we ALL should know Moderators can warn people for how long they like, this may disable you from sending comments or awards.

Ban - Just here and beyond the powers become more worse, banning someone limits their account for a short amount of time. They are unable to send Comments. If you get banned you may file an appeal in a special kind of board called "Ban Appeal" if you persuade the Moderator to unban you, they will, otherwise you will remain banned.

Perma Ban - Moderators can perma ban members, but to receive this ban. You will have to drive the Moderators crazy as hell. Driving a Moderator to perma ban you is harder then you think. This also disables your account and you are not able to log in.

Whew, that was pretty long but I'm not finished yet.

Words and Definitions.

Alt - Short for alternate, this is somewhat another word for multiple.

Perma - Short for permanent(ly) means forever.

Flagging - Flagging is another word for reporting

MSM - Short for Mainsite Moderator, this is the badge given to you when you pass voting in the MSM recruitment.

MS - Short for Mainsite. The site that you receive the badges on.

What can you get warned/banned for?
(Bonus Field)

Well, you can get banned for a lot of things. Let me bullet point some things you could get banned for.

1. You could get warned/banned for inappropriate language
2. You could get warned/banned for racism, this is a more major case and could actually lead to a permanent ban if repetitive.
3. You could get warned/banned for inappropriate games or graphics as other users can see them. This is most likely to get you a warning, but if repetitive can lead to a ban.

I would use these powers if I know someone is acting aggressively towards other members. If you tell them once and they still repeat it. It just shows how foolish and disobedient they are. 

Thanks.

What being a MSM means to me
Being a MSM is a big deal to me and should be for many others. It is a power that is used to protect the people of Sploder from hackers, bullies, rule-breakers, ect, but the power should be used carefully and thoughtfully. "With great power comes great responsibility." They must be willing to think wisely in the toughest of situations and be willing to punish a user no matter how much hate he/she will get. We must remember that Sploder is a kids’ website, and MSM’s are one of the only ones that are able to protect the kids from harmful content.

I would love to help out Sploder by becoming a MSM. If I became a MSM, I would make sure I would do my job carefully and correctly. I will think and act fairly, and I would take it seriously. I will be fair when making judgments, and I will follow all the rules to be a MSM.

MSM's Powers
The Moderation Panel:
All MSM’s have the ability to view the moderation panel. The moderation panel shows every single reported comment. From here, the MSM’s can determine if the comment is rule-breaking or not. If it is rule-breaking, then punishment will be given depending on how serious of the offense it was.

The Hack Log:
The hack log shows all the attempts somebody makes to log into somebody else’s account. It tells who tried to log into the account and the time and date of when they tried. A MSM should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It will show who hacked the user, and what damage they did. MSM’s use this to help figure out who hacked who.

IP Checking:
A MSM has the power to IP check a member. Once IP checked, the user’s location and all of his alts will appear.  MSM’s use this power in situations such as when a member is being hacked, and they need to know who possibly hacked them.

Warnings:
In most cases, instead of banning a member on their first offense, MSM’s warn a user telling them what they did wrong, and that next time the consequences will be worse. MSM’s use this power when a user does a minor offense, such as swearing, bypassing, and spam.

Banning:
MSM’s have the power to ban a user. A ban will take away the user’s right to comment and make awards, but they can still make games and groups. In serious cases, MSM's can ban a member permanently. MSM’s use this power whenever a user repeats an offense after their warning or whenever they make a major offense.

IP Banning:
Another power a MSM has is IP banning. An IP ban has all the consequences of a ban, but it bans all of the users that have the same IP address. MSM’s use this power only in the worse of the worse situations.

Restoring Games:
Sometimes, a user accidentally deletes a game. In order to get it back, the user who deleted their game should make a comment in the game restoration page, http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/. Here, MSM’s can see who wants their game restored, and what game they want restored. However, in some cases, a game cannot be restored.

Blocking Graphics:
MSM’s have the power to block graphics. MSM’s use this power whenever the user makes an inappropriate graphics that breaks the rules.

Deleting Awards:
MSM’s have the ability to delete awards from a user. MSM’s use this if it is award’s description contains inappropriate words or breaks any of the rules.

Removing Comments:
MSM’s have the power to delete inappropriate comments. Once removed, the comment appears as “[Comment deleted by moderator]”. MSM’s use this power whenever a user posts a comment that contains spam, bypassing, cussing, or flaming.

Spamming and Flaming
Spamming:
Spamming is pretty much stupid, pointless, annoying messages. Advertising games on other people's pages and comments that contain a whole bunch of smileys or jumbles or random letters are considered spam.

Flaming:
Flaming is when one user attacks another user by insulting the user, and in most cases, involves inappropriate words. Flaming usually happens when two or more users have different opinions on a subject. After awhile, the argument escalates into a flame war, and insults are thrown at each other.

------

Thanks for taking your time to read my application. I hope you understand all the points I made in this, and good luck to the others. =)

What being a MSM means to me.

A MSM, to me, is the most important job on sploder as the lucky, yet hard working people, who have this power, keep the sploder MS members under control and also content. But mainly members. Without our, helpful, moderators, sploder would be like the London riots in August 2011.
I understand that being a moderator's job is pretty tough but at times can be pretty fun. Like a real life job, you have to be up for anything that comes in your way and be ready for anything.
A moderator has lots of powers, that should NEVER, even if you have millions of reasons, ever be abused. e.g. Banning a member because they didn't play your game. You get the idea.
A MSM is a role model to most members. So, you must teach them to be mature and how to keep safe on sploder
If I was given the, lucky, job of a MSM moderator, I would make sure members know what to if you think you or your friend is being: threatened, bullied or/and bribed.
To make a good MSM you should be active with your job, this way, lots of MSM jobs will be done and out the way. e.g. Ban appeal replies, un-banning members, etc, etc.
A good MSM can sometimes be friendly too. Not too friendly, because then it shows to be really soft, just showing a bit of thought on who you’re talking to can always calm a situation. If you are friendly, more members will like you and be interested in what you do. That way, not only are you making someone happy, you get another MS member who respects you and you feel proud with what you have done in your job.
Moderators have to loyal and reliable. Your leader, Geoff and all the other MSMs and MS member rely on you. If you don't show loyalty and reliability, most of these will show minimum respect for you. Most members respect a MSM; you should at least be loyal to all of them. Lots of sploder members wait for MSM to help them; you should let them know that you will help.
Moderators must be serious in all situations. Whether they are warning a member, talking to a member who is upset by something or something else. The reason being for this is: a member could get the impression that you are doing your job wrong or that they think they may be able to keep you acting immaturely and try to get you to act like them. I don’t know. Anything could happen.
A MSM should have control over members, not just to have the ability to ban them. These should calm them and make them act maturely towards sploder. The more you tend to ignore them, the more agitated and annoyed they get.


What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is a power where a MSM has the ability to stop a member on the MS from doing certain things. Moderator’s use this power when a member has broken the rules. In this situation, it is probably best to explain what the member has done wrong and how long they are banned for. Showing attention helps calm members down.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy task, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alt to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power.
 Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it.
Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.



Spamming And Flaming.

Spamming - This is where a member posts multiples of times, most of the time the same thing, on peoples and other pages. Spamming is pointless. If you were to spam, members will just lose respect for you and you will end up with no one for you because you annoyed them by multiple posting on their page. Spamming is very annoying as people don't want to see a load of pointless posts that they've already seen, they want to see more posts that are important. Usually, spamming leads to a warning or a ban. 

Flaming - Flaming is when members argue and cuss each other. Flaming usually starts with a disagreement. Most members don't like flamers, it annoys them and respect will be lost for them because they have argued for no valid reason. Flaming can sometimes lead to a warning or a ban.


Final note.

I am fully aware that a moderators job can be pretty difficult. But hey, I'm up for it!
If I become a moderator, I will make sure sploder keeps maintained well and that all the members on sploder feel safe. All the members who deserve it, will be brought to justice, one way or another.
I thank you so much for taking the time to read my application.

I promise that if you thank this post and I become a MSM, I will keep sploder a safe place and let everyone enjoy it!

Being a MSM is a big deal to me and should be for many others. It is a power that is used to protect the people of Sploder from hackers, bullies, rule-breakers, ect, but the power should be used carefully and thoughtfully. "With great power comes great responsibility." They must be willing to think wisely in the toughest of situations and be willing to punish a user no matter how much hate he/she will get. We must remember that Sploder is a kids’ website, and MSM’s are one of the only ones that are able to protect the kids from harmful content.

I would love to help out Sploder by becoming a MSM. If I became a MSM, I would make sure I would do my job carefully and correctly. I will think and act fairly, and I would take it seriously. I will be fair when making judgments, and I will follow all the rules to be a MSM.

MSM's Powers
The Moderation Panel:
All MSM’s have the ability to view the moderation panel. The moderation panel shows every single reported comment. From here, the MSM’s can determine if the comment is rule-breaking or not. If it is rule-breaking, then punishment will be given depending on how serious of the offense it was.

The Hack Log:
The hack log shows all the attempts somebody makes to log into somebody else’s account. It tells who tried to log into the account and the time and date of when they tried. A MSM should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It will show who hacked the user, and what damage they did. MSM’s use this to help figure out who hacked who.

IP Checking:
A MSM has the power to IP check a member. Once IP checked, the user’s location and all of his alts will appear.  MSM’s use this power in situations such as when a member is being hacked, and they need to know who possibly hacked them.

Warnings:
In most cases, instead of banning a member on their first offense, MSM’s warn a user telling them what they did wrong, and that next time the consequences will be worse. MSM’s use this power when a user does a minor offense, such as swearing, bypassing, and spam.

Banning:
MSM’s have the power to ban a user. A ban will take away the user’s right to comment and make awards, but they can still make games and groups. In serious cases, MSM's can ban a member permanently. MSM’s use this power whenever a user repeats an offense after their warning or whenever they make a major offense.

IP Banning:
Another power a MSM has is IP banning. An IP ban has all the consequences of a ban, but it bans all of the users that have the same IP address. MSM’s use this power only in the worse of the worse situations.

Restoring Games:
Sometimes, a user accidentally deletes a game. In order to get it back, the user who deleted their game should make a comment in the game restoration page, http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/. Here, MSM’s can see who wants their game restored, and what game they want restored. However, in some cases, a game cannot be restored.

Blocking Graphics:
MSM’s have the power to block graphics. MSM’s use this power whenever the user makes an inappropriate graphics that breaks the rules.

Deleting Awards:
MSM’s have the ability to delete awards from a user. MSM’s use this if it is award’s description contains inappropriate words or breaks any of the rules.

Removing Comments:
MSM’s have the power to delete inappropriate comments. Once removed, the comment appears as “[Comment deleted by moderator]”. MSM’s use this power whenever a user posts a comment that contains spam, bypassing, cussing, or flaming.

Spamming and Flaming
Spamming:
Spamming is pretty much stupid, pointless, annoying messages. Advertising games on other people's pages and comments that contain a whole bunch of smileys or jumbles or random letters are considered spam.

Flaming:
Flaming is when one user attacks another user by insulting the user, and in most cases, involves inappropriate words. Flaming usually happens when two or more users have different opinions on a subject. After awhile, the argument escalates into a flame war, and insults are thrown at each other.

Thanks for taking your time to read my application. I hope you understand all the points I made in this, and good luck to the others. =)

                           What being a Moderator means to me
Being a Moderator means getting to moderate the site. If I get accepted, I won't be bragging about anything. Being a Moderator mean having duties to do and to have to warn and sometimes ban members that spam, bypass, etc. It also means having to get on every once and a while to try to find anyone that is breaking the rules or anything else they are doing that is inappropriate.
 
                                               List of powers a Moderator has. Ban (gets to ban any members who break the rules more than 1+ times)

2. Warn (gets to give warnings to members who break a rule)

3. Delete inappropriate posts (they get to delete inappropriate posts in the main site)

4. Ban members from posting (they can ban members from posting if they do many spam or inappropriate posts)
5. Restoring games (they get to restore deleted games if the owner wants them to.
6. IP banning (they ban members with the same IP address if the members do a really bad thing)

I would use any of these powers if someone started to break the rule(s) or if they kept spamming any profile messages.
Definition of flaming and spamming
 Spamming- spamming is posting many comments with no real sense and only random letters and numbers. This usually happens when a immature member gets bored.

    Flaming- insulting other members or saying mean things about them. Usually happens when a member gets mad at another member and posts inappropriate things or mean things about another member.

Post by: miracleboy on March 18, 2013, 08:38 pm
OK I know what I need to do now. An MSM to me is a person who you have to respect, a person who makes wrongs into right, a person who knows what to do in almost every situation. MSM can ban people, have power over people, and can make sure you don't go on Sploder again (unless you get a a different IP of course!)  An MSM's most IMPORTANT job is spamming. Spammers are really annoying in my opinion, they say stuff over and over and over again! If I were a mod, trust ME Spamming wouldn't last long! I hope I get en ough "thanks" to become a mod. If I do become a moderator, that will be probably the SMARTEST decision you have ever made in your lifetime. I hope you guys agree to what I am saying. Please reply and thanks this application! :) :) :)

Post by: Pythagoras on March 19, 2013, 08:51 am

If I were to become an MSM, I would make sure every problem has been done and I would always me there to check if it is actually a good reason to be warned or banned.  I would not ban someone for no reason at all and if it is time for them to unbanned I will be active and be there to finish there punishment and I will make sure it is the right time to unban them.

~The MSM Powers~

MSM members keep sploder safe and makes sure it is age appropriate for any age. MSM members have a chance of a life time and they have to work for sploder every day to make sure it is safe. They ban inappropriate things and make sure it is never saw again and make sploder the best website ever.

Warning: Any inappropriate behaviour like spamming, bad graphics, bad games, bypassing, racism should be dealt with as soon as it is saw and if that person keeps doing it and breaking the rules he should be punished.

Banning: A member gets banned after breaking the rules  several times and if it is one time you should give them one more chance because they might not of read the rules, but if he/she does it again they should be banned.

Ip Check: On forums you can only have 1 account on main site you have to have permission to make another account or you must tell mods that it is you because they need to know, keeping it secret will just get you in to trouble.

Quarantining: If a user has misbehaved a lot on the site. A moderator can make this member quarantined. This makes that member under the watch of all moderators in case he/she breaks the rules again

Flagging a game: If a mod finds an inappropriate game they flag it and it goes straight to Geoff so I is deleted so there is no point in making inappropriate games.

Blocking Games/Graphics: This will happen if a moderator find's a game or graphic inappropriate. They can block it so that other members can not see it.

Access to the MSM panel: A moderator can check all of the previous bans and warning they and other moderators have made.

Spam: Any spamming should be dealt with do that person will never never spam again.

Flame: When someone post's rude or offensive messages/insults or racism to another member. May result in what's known as a "flame war"
 
I'm sure I would be a great addition for the Main Site Moderators. If I do pass. I will be sure to help with the best of my abilities.
Title: Re: The Boondocks: Moderation Movement (MSM Recruitment)
Post by: Red on March 19, 2013, 02:10 pm
I would like to tell you, why I would be a good mod. I have had a lot of experiance with bullies, and helped the mods find bullies and such on sploder. People now come to me for help, but I feel I cannot help them without the powers of a moderator. So, here is my application.

What being a moderator means to me

For me to be a moderator, has been my main goal on sploder for a long time. I began  helping the moderators find bullies, and helping members with their bully problems. To this day, members still come to me for help, as I have mentioned before, however, I feel I cannot help them much. I would LOVE to be able to help these members. Truly, I would. If I were a moderator I would use my powers wisely, and properly, to help keep sploder a family friendly place.

What powers a moderator has

Deleting comments

If a moderator finds an innapropriate message on the main site, he has the ability to delete it to prevent as many members from seeing it as possible.

Warning a member

If a member has broken rules, by spamming, bypassing, bullying, or by another method, the moderator can give him a verbal warning. This acts as a deterrent for further rule breaking.

Banning a member

If the situation calls for it, the moderator can ban a member. this means he cannot post, but can still make games.

Flagging games and accounts

If a member has been IP banned, or there is an innapropriate game, the moderator can flag the game/account to geoff to delete.

IP banning

If a member has been banned, and created another account to get around the ban, and continued breaking the rules, the moderator can IP ban that member. This means he cannot make another account, or post. This should only be used as a last resort.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming

Flaming, is hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users, often involving the use of profanity. It is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

Spamming is to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on  sploder, or to the same member, as either annnoyance, or advertising.


                                                        Final note

I would be the best moderator I could be if given the honour. And I truly, truly hope that people know that. I want so badly to help my fellow members, but can see no way to help them as easily as this.

                                                 ~Thank you for reading~

MSM Application:
What being a MSM means to you:
An MSM helps keep the main site clear of spammers, hackers, and other rule-breakers. I want to help with this by becoming an MSM. I believe I qualify for this role, even though I'm not the one who judges that. I am mature, so I won't abuse my powers, and I will do my job properly. I am also active. Being active is very important, as an active MSM can spot more rule-breakers easily, and efficiently. Whereas an inactive MSM can't find many rule-breakers.

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

Warning - A warning is a message to tell a rule-breaker that he/she has broken a rule and carrying on may turn into more severe consequences. This would be issued to people who have broken a rule like bypassing, or spamming for the first-time. Of course, if they have broken the rule several times, a more severe consequence than a warning would be issued.

Banning - When a user continues to bypass, spam, or insult other users multiple times after being warned, a ban may be issued. This blocks the user from posting, making awards, and making games, but they can still log in, play games, and view posts. Basically, banning people blocks all methods of conveying a message to the public, thus stopping them from bypassing, spamming or insulting. Users may be banned for a limited time.

Permanent Ban - Users who break rules like bypassing, spamming or insulting multiple times keep getting worse (by this I mean using bypassing a lot more, spam large messages, insult using racism, sexism, and get more offensive) can be issued a Perma-Ban. This is when the user cannot do anything with his/her account. They can't even log on. This may also be issued for any other harmful rule-breaking, like abusing powers to harm a user.

Un-Banning - Pretty self-explanatory. This is used to un-ban banned users, thus allowing them to do what they could normally do. It may be used on people who were banned only for a certain time.

IP Ban - This is the worst of all types of bans. An IP ban is the same as a Perma-Ban, except an IP ban blocks users from accessing an account from the same IP and blocks them from creating another account from the same IP as the IP banned user. Basically, an IP banned user is banned from the whole Sploder site, and cannot get into it in any way. This would be issued in absolute serious cases like breaking multiple rules multiple times, abusing powers for even worse reasons, abusing alts for your own benefit, hacking etc.

IP Checking - This is used to check an IP of a user, and may be used to find an IP to ban it or to check for alts.

Deleting Messages - MSMs can delete messages with inappropriate or banned content, like spam, insults, racism, sexism, links to inappropriate websites etc.

Game Restoring - MSMs have the power to restore deleted games. This would be used when a user requests to restore a game they may have deleted for whatever reason. MSMs would decide whether it is suitable to be restored or not (a game with inappropriate or content would not be restored, but a game that doesn't break any rules would be restored)

Game Flagging - I would use this if I found a game with inappropriate content like insults, sexual references, nude etc. This would send a notification to Geoff. Geoff would then see the game, decide whether it should be deleted, then take action. Other consequences may be given as well as the deletion, like a warn, or if the user has already received a warning earlier, a ban may be issued.

Deleting Graphics - MSMs have the power to delete graphics with inappropriate content. I'd use this when I find graphics with nude, offensive language, or racism. Inappropriate graphics can easily be found when making PPGs. Since I am making several PPGs, and I go onto the PPG creator often, I would be able to easily find them.

Access Moderating Board - The Moderating Board displays all bans, deleted items, warnings etc.

Access Hack Log - This is a log where MSMs can see which IP has accessed which account. This is used to find hackers, accessing other accounts. I would check this regularly, to make sure no one has been hacked, and I'd use it when someone claims that they have been hacked, to see whether or not they are lieing. If the user was hacked, I'd take action by banning the hacker. Another way of finding out whether someone's been hacked is by there actions. If a generally nice person suddenly became mean, or if a person suddenly started making inappropriate games, it'd be suspicious, and then I'd check the Hack Log.

Reporting - Both users and MSMs have this power. Messages can be reported to MSMs. MSMs would then decide whether it is inappropriate, and should be deleted.

Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming:
This is the act of posting loads of messages consecutively. These messages can be either advertising, e.g "Play my games and vote them!!!!" or messages with random content, e.g "h42yurgh34ergerg". The advertising messages are to advertise, and the random content ones are to annoy people. People may also spam with smileys, again, to annoy people.

Flaming:
Flaming is the act of posting messages to rudely insult a member. This may include racism, sexism, bypassing etc, and this can be serious. This may happen for various reasons.

Final Notes:
Thank you for your time! I would love to become a MSM, and help keep Sploder clean of those rule-breakers. If I become a MSM, I assure you, I will be in top form, and never abuse my powers. I know the consequences, and it would be dumb to abuse my powers after trying hard to get the role. I understand MSMs have a lot of power, and you wouldn't just want to give it to anyone. But I think I am capable of handling these powers. Anyways, it's your decision. Thanks once again for your time and for reading this!

P.S I wasn't sure whether I had to completely change my application, or just tweak it a bit, add paragraphs, add sentences etc. So if I have done this incorrectly, please do point it out. Thanks

                           mods powers are banning, warning, and ip bans.
               spamming: when a player keeps posting random stuff and flamming: bullying other players.

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log:The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: I edited my MSM application so if you think I haven't changed it, you are wrong. Read it again. I am happy that Milking and Tommy got the MSM badge. Congratulations to them. If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

What being a MSM means to me.
   
A Sploder Main Site Moderator, to me, is the most important job on sploder. As the hard working moderator, who have many powers, keep sploder maintained in content, but mainly keep the members maintained. Without our helpful moderators, sploder would be like the London riots in 2011 as there would be no one to maintain sploder and stop hacks, inappropriate messages, rule breaking and more.
I understand that a moderator can have a hard time quite rarely. However, if you want to become a moderator, you have to be able to know what to do and be patient.
A moderator has lots of powers, which are very powerful, that should NEVER, even if you have millions of reasons, ever be abused. Such as: banning a member because their game got featured and your game didn’t.
If I was given the job as a MSM, I would make sure members, maybe who are new, know what to do if them or their friend is being: threatened, hated-on, bullied or/and bribed.
MSM’s have to remember that they have role models, which means people who admire them, so a MSM must be mature and basically everything we need for a good sploder member.
A MSM may be friendly too, not too friendly as it can take sploder members the wrong way, just maybe a bit of attention to them make a member happy.
Moderators have to loyal and reliable. Your leader, Geoff, the other MSM’s and MS member rely on you to do a good job and to prove to them that you are a good MSM. If you don't show loyalty and reliability, most of these will show minimum respect for you. Most members respect a MSM; you should at least be loyal to all of them so they give you more respect. Lots of sploder members wait for MSM to help them; you should let them know that you will help.
Moderators must be serious in all situations, even if they are warning a member. The reason being for this is: they could easily tell another MSM that you are not taking your job seriously and you need to be demoted. Like I always say: ‘It takes a long time to make a reputation and only one word or action to ruin it’.
A MSM should have control over members, not just to have the ability to ban them. These should calm them and make them act maturely towards sploder. However, if you intend to ignore them, it could get them agitated as members do like attention.

What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can stop a member doing certain things on sploder because they may have broken the rules.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy thing to do, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 
Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.

Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alternative account to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power. This can sometimes lead to an I.P ban.
 
Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Deleting awards ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete an award that may have broken the rules or offended another member. This usually leads to a warning or ban, depending what the content is on the award message.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it.

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.

Permanent ban ~ This is the power where a MSM can ban a member forever. This means the member cannot do anything on sploder. You can be un-perma banned. This is usually the type of ban after an I.P ban.



Spamming And Flaming.

Spamming – This is where a member multiply posts on pages. Spamming is sometimes used when a member is: angry, advertising or trying to get attention.    Most members get annoyed with spammers as they would want to see more important messages on pages and a member could lose great respect for a spammer. Spamming usually leads to a warning.

Flaming – This is where a group of people argue and cuss. Flaming is sometimes used when a group of people are: angry, showing off or trying to prove a point. A lot of members get annoyed with flamers because they know flaming is pointless and just wastes people’s time. Flaming usually leads to a warning and sometimes a ban.


Final note.

I am fully aware what being a MSM is like as I have spoken and discussed with many MSM’s already. I know it sometimes can be challenging but I’m up for it. I’m sure, if I become a MSM, I will make sploder a lot better than it is now, not that’s it’s bad already.
I have many ideas to keep sploder a good place and if I become a MSM I will be sure to use them.
I know I'm mature and serious enough to handle this important job.
However, the main reason I would like to become a MSM is that I would like to bring all the inappropriate members to what they deserve and make everyone feel happy.
I have been on sploder for over a year now and feel that I'm experienced enough.

Thanks for reading my MSM application.

Gooood luck to all the other applicants.




If you want sploder to become a better place overall, thank this post please!

Post by: Epicosaurus on March 27, 2013, 05:31 am
If I was to be an MSM, I would be extremely happy and would be surprized by the fact that I actually passed voting. Also I could help members in need of it, which is funnily enough one of my dreams on sploder.  I would handle my MSM powers correctly, without a doubt. Being an MSM means a lot to me, as I for one can gain more respect from other members of the forum (preferably the more popular members of sploder), and could help those in need of help. Also as I have mentioned before, it's one of my dreamsn sploder. I'd love to keep little children safe from harm on sploder, whether someone would be spamming or swearing; I will always make sure that everyone has a great time here on sploder, and I'll make sure they are protected from anything bad. If something bad does happen, I will make sure it'll be sorted out.

~An MSM's Power~

An MSM has a lot of important powers that are needed for the safety of the members of this site, through warning people to permanently banning people. A moderators job is basically to protect the main site of all that is bad, and to protect the many young souls wallowing in this site today. They want them to be happy and safe here, as we don't want to lose many people here because someone swore at another member or offended them in any way. Anything that does happen will be sorted out with the powers listed. Here are some of the MSM's powers:

Banning Users: A moderator will be able to ban members if they spam a lot, bypass, flame, make inappropriate games, offend someone else or their family (eg; through racial abuse), make innapropriate graphics and/or tags, etc. That user will still be able to make games and graphics and even make friends through their ban time, but they won't be allowed to post comments, just in case they begin to flame with the moderator - everyone deserves a chance. However, if they continue to make innapropriate games or graphics, their ban will be longer. The moderators can also permanently ban a user or just IP ban a user if they continue to damage the site.

Warning Users: If say a user only posts a moderate amount of spamming or make a slightly innapropriate graphic, a moderator will just warn them so that they don't do it again. Warning isn't as bad as banning, as they will be able to place comments. But, if the user does any more bad things on this website, they may be banned.

IP Checking: If a user that is perma banned makes another account (take sceptile for an example), a moderator can easily IP check them so they can alert other moderators to take a look at the member if they have let this user off. If they do something wrong, they will perma ban that account as well. Also, if a member has an alt and say the member with that alt doesn't want it, they can ask a moderator to IP check them to see if it actually is their alt and they will flag that member to geoff to perma ban that account.

Flagging A Game: If a moderator finds an inappropriate game and the member who made it refuses to delete it (or can't because of the high amount of views), a moderator will flag the game to geoff so he can delete it, as no moderators have the ability to remove a game. The user will probably be banned or permanently banned.

Quarantining A Member: If a user is being rather bad (or makes games and graphics and/or games like sceptiles) a moderator will make the member quarantined. This will put the user under watch of all moderators, just in case they continue to do bad things that could damage the site.

Blocking Games/Graphics: This is where a moderator will remove an innapropriate game or graphic from the main site, but won't be deleted.

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.

~Defining Spamming And Flaming~

Spamming is a repeated post, that has been posted say about 20 times. There are many types of spamming, such as emoticon spamming, trying to get people to play your games by posting 'play my games', and evn spamming dating requests. Some aren't as serious as others, however some of them can get you banned. I wouldn't spam anything if I was just a regular member of sploder, to show my knowledge of the site.
Flaming is basically insulting a member with arrogant behaviour. It's pretty much arguing with a member excessively using insults and possibly colourful vocabulary that really isn't appropriate for this site. Some are for silly reasons, and it can be worth a ban or warning. Flaming could be caught up through many different reasons, like insulting someones family or being racist.

If I were to be a moderator, I would help to keep sploder safe, and at an appropriate level for the large amounts of children that use this site. I Think I would be a good choice for moderator, because of my large desire to help others.

What being a moderator means to me

I wouls love to be chosen for moderator for many reasons. The first being that this was the badge, I had alsways wanted the most. And I've always had a healthy desire to help others on the main site, as seen through my little group I had on there, to protect sploder haha. I thought it was so big and strong at the time, however, when I had found a bully, I had to wait for a moderator to reply and take action. Which, of course, if I had been moderator myself I could have taken action immediately, and prevented any more harm coming. But I just had to wait for the other mods to see my post, which could have been lost in a sea of other requests. So, to help others, and to be a respectable member of the sploder community, as well as to be a role model for the newer members, is what being a main site moderator means to me.

A moderators powers

Warning

If the moderator has found an offending member, he will give him a verbal warning. this will hopefully prevent any other offense from this member.

Banning

If the offending member has ignored previous warnings, and continued to break the rules in whichever way, the moderator must ban him. This means he cannot post any more messages, but can still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects a member of being an alt of a previously banned member, to get around the ban, or the member thinks he has been hacked, the moderator can check the IP adress of that member. This will show either if that member is an alt, or whether another member has been hacked, and by who.

IP ban

If the offender has been banned, but made an alt to avoid the ban, and continued to offend, the moderator must IP ban him. This means he cannot post, and he cannot make ANY more accounts.

Flagging games or accounts to geoff

If there is a banned user, or innappropriate game on the main site, he will flag them to geoff for deletion.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming
Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder members, often involving the use of profanity.
 
Flaming is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

Send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder. For reasons either to advertise, or to annoy.

I am not gonna try to impress you guys with big words or anything like that, I just want to do what I'm supposed to say. Being a mod to me is a privelidge (might of spelled that wrong) to have. Having this big responsibility is challenging and I am DEIFINITELY up for the challenge. I know I don't have a lot of badges or have that many levels. But if you thank me that will be one of the best decisions of your life. Flaming is a hatred between to users of texting cuss, threatening, and just being plain MEAN to the other user. If I was a mod I would try hard to become a fair, good mod. If you thank me Thank you, if you don't, I understand but I will not quit trying until I have that little badge on those empty little badge spaces. Please thank this and I know 238888 is going to win but hey? Why not try? Have a good day.

What being a MSM means to me
 Being a MSM is highly important for Sploder. A MSM has many powers and which should be used correctly. It protects users from bullying, hackers, etc.  Users who do break the rules must be warned, banned, etc. Without the power of a MSM there would be a bunch of issues, we don’t want that to happen. Everyone needs to remember that Sploder is a kids’ site and to think before you post.

I would really enjoy becoming a Moderator.  I will always do my job, and since I am active it will help a lot. I will treat everyone fairly and be serious. I do have good judgmental skills for situations. If I am unsure about a decision I would get help from other Moderators. I will help make Sploder a kid friendly site for all ages.


Powers of a Main Site Moderator


Warnings:
You have to warn a user first before a ban depending on the situation. When you warn a user a message will appear on their home page. You have to tell them why they are warned or otherwise they wouldn’t know why.

Banning/ IP banning:
 If a user repeats something when warned they will be banned. Or if they do something that’s worse they will be banned also. When banned the user cannot post comments or make awards. Although, they can make games and groups. If a user does something extremely harsh they will be IP banned. When they are IP banned all the users are banned with that IP.

Blocking Graphics:

When a user makes an inappropriate graphic Moderators have the power to block the graphic. This helps a lot so young users do not see inappropriate things.

Restoring Games: 

If a user accidently deletes a game it can be restored by a Moderator. When the user wants to restore the game they will go to the game restoration page, and post a comment with the name of their deleted game. A MSM will read the comment and restore it. Sometimes, the game unluckily cannot be restored.

The Hack Log:

The hack Log shows who tried to access someone’s account, it shows the date, and time they tried to. This is very useful, it can help with cases with hacking. It’s needed to check this if someone has claimed to have been hacked. I really like this tool.

IP Checking:

This shows the users location and the alts that belong to the user. This helps to find out people who hacked another users account.

Deleting Awards:

If a user makes and award with an inappropriate description a Moderator can delete the award.

Removing Comments:

Moderators can delete comments. Have you ever seen a comment that said “[Comment Deleted by Moderator]”?  This happens when a user posts a comment containing something breaking the rules. Like spamming, bypassing, cussing, and flaming.


Spamming and Flamming

Spamming:
 Spamming is when one posts a multiple comments containing the same text. They are called “spammers”. They are extremely annoying in my opinion. Mostly they are smileys, random letters, or other stuff. They are usually posted on games and other people’s page. You will see these a quite often.

Flaming:
Flaming is when users fight. The comments include insults, and  inappropriate words. Flaming often occurs when users disagree with the other users opinion. Some fights happen over the most silly things. Respect is usually lost for the members fighting. These fights can result in a ban or warn. Remember to think before you say. You can highly offend someone.


Thank you for reading my MSM application.

What Being A MSM Means To Me
Hello! I am Billu, and I would like to contribute to the mainsite by holding the moderator rank. I have been on the mainsite for a total of two years currently, and although I have enjoyed and have taken advantage of creating my own games, I have also seen troublesome things on sploder. Those troublesome things that I have seen were things such as bypassing, members showing aggression against each other and etc, which made my mind spin. So it would be a great honor if I held the moderator rank to be able to contribute to the mainsite to keep sploder troublesome free.

List Of Powers A MSM Holds

Warn
If an inappropriate member is breaking the rules and terms of service of sploder, then I as a moderator would most likely give a warning to that member so that member stops what he is doing and mends his ways. A warning is when a member can still log into his account but will have a warning to stop what he/she is doing.

Ban/IP Ban
If that inappropriate member still does not seem to stop, then a ban would take place and this ban will be limited to that member. A ban is when a member can't make awards or comments but can still make games, and groups. This will be given in kind of a major offense from me, and it will teach the member not to do what he did again.An IP Ban is the worst ban of all. It is when a member has a lot of alts that are inappropriate and the best thing to do will be to make an IP ban go into effect on that member. That IP ban will make sure that the member is not able to return to any of his accounts.

Hack Log
The hack log is where a moderator checks to see if there are any other accounts on that members IP to determine if that member is being hacked by other member(s). A member can simply ask a moderator to see if there are any members hacking him.

IP Check
An IP Check is when a moderator can check other peoples IP (The location a member is located.) This is kind of the same thing as the hack log where you check IP's to determine if a member is being hacked or not.

Game restoration
If a member has accidently or purposely deleted one of his games, then a moderator can restore that game for that member if the member wants his game to be retrieved.

Spamming/Flaming
Spamming is when a member posts the same thing over and over again on profiles, games etc. Flaming is when a member gets into a long argument with another member.

Thank you for reading, I really appreciate it, and have a nice day. ~Billu

1.) What being a MSM means to you: A Main Site Moderator is not just for power, or get others to sit on your lap. It's not to ban those you dislike. It's about responsibilities, and how you would volunteer your own time. Make a effort and emotion that you were not force to do this, but willing to do it because you want to, and not get payed at all. A MSM is people keeping everything under control, and letting the bees fly to a flower than to a weed plant. Whoever can make a effort to lead someone a to a bowl of water, but you cannot make them drink. (Leading someone to good deeds, but cannot stop them from doing something.)

2.) Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
Define spamming and flaming:
1. Warning: if a member uses too much cursing language, and most comments are directly to a underage group. They will be given a Fair warning, and lead them to understand the punishments if goes on.

2. Ban: A person that gets banned means, the member broke a rule that is strictly forbidden and/or got many warnings of the same offense.

3. IP Ban: A person that got banned many times, or opened up many accounts for cheating. The person will not be allowed on the website, or create a new account. This may last for 4 months or more depending on the Administrator.

4. Spamming: If someone post comments 3+ in a row can be considered as spam. Even spam can accord in 1 comment that doesn't mean nothing, or a paragraph that repeats over and over. The person could given a warning, or banned.

5. Flaming:  Members  actions of posting deliberately hostile messages on the Internet used mainly by a troll (I consider it as a level 1/2 bullying.)

Experience:

I do speak English and Taking Spanish 1P (A+ 104%)
(Can speak to Spanish speakers.)
Progress report: (http://i48.tinypic.com/2w5qcnn.png)

I also was a Moderator Assistant on http://www.Tengaged .es (http://www.Tengaged .es) My account was: Http://www.tengaged.es/user/socialize (http://Http://www.tengaged.es/user/socialize)

MSM APPLICATION.

Intro
Yes, I know that not many people would think that I would make a REALLY bad mod, but I am COMPLETLY different on the MS, I just be immature on the forums for some reason...? Annnyyyywwaaay.

What Powers An MSM Has:
Game Restoring

When a member accidently deletes a game, there is a specail page where member can request to get there games back, of which, MSMs can restore the game that was deleted.

______________________________________
Hack Log and IP Log
No, these are NOT where a mod logs in,

Hack Log
When a member is hacked, a mod can go here to see what Ip has acesses another Ip.

Ip Log
Where a mod can check what Ip matches another Ip.
This is a method of detecting alts.
_________________________________
Banns and Warns:[/u]
Warnings[/u]
Warnings are for when a member has broken the terms of service once.

Banns[/u]
Banns are for when a member has broken the terms of service multiplue times.

IP Banns[/u]
IP banns are for when a member has broken the terms of service multiplue times after a bann. Ip banns make it so a member cannot make another account with the same Ip.

_______________________________________
Flaming[/u]
Flames, are when a member has hated on a certain, or multiplue members, and when done once, will warn. If done multiplue times...(See Banns and Warns)

________________________________________
Conclusion[/u]
I believe I would make a good MSM because I will not tolerate bullying/flaming, and am an experienced member.

Glossary
Ip: A users Email Adress.
Alts: An aletnative account. (AN account with the same Ip as another)

What being MSM is to me:
Being an MSM will be great for me to help other people. Being a MSM is not about power and for fun,
it is about great responsibility. As other says "Great power comes with Great Responsibility".
It is not about banning other people you dislike, it is about banning people that violate the
terms of service , then unbanning in an accurate period of time.
Powers that MSM's have:
1. Game Restoring = To restore games that other people accidentally deleted.
2. Warning = It is to warn a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services, once.
3. Banning = It is to ban a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services multiple times, will be unbanned in a right amount of time.
4. Unbanning = It is to unbann a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services.
What Spamming and Flaming means:
1. Spamming = Posting disruptive messages/comments, posting fake memberships in a certain game, posting hacks that puts viruses in your computer.

What being MSM is to me:
Being an MSM will be great for me to help other people. Being a MSM is not about power and for fun,
it is about great responsibility. As other says "Great power comes with Great Responsibility".
It is not about banning other people you dislike, it is about banning people that violate the
terms of service , then unbanning in an accurate period of time.
Powers that MSM's have:
1. Game Restoring = To restore games that other people accidentally deleted.
2. Warning = It is to warn a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services, once.
3. Banning = It is to ban a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services multiple times, will be unbanned in a right amount of time.
4. Unbanning = It is to unbann a certain Sploder User that has violated the terms of services.
What Spamming and Flaming means:
1. Spamming = Posting disruptive messages/comments, posting fake memberships in a certain game, posting hacks that puts viruses in your computer.
2. Flaming = When a certain Sploder User hates another User. Will be warned once if done once. Will be banned if done multiple times.
Congratz on your first thank ever!  ;)

What being a MSM means to you:Being an MSM means to me as being a mature member who lower members look up to. They should be setting an example and be a role model. Also, they should not abuse their powers.
Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:One of the MSM's powers are warning and banning people. I would use this if I had been notified that there was a hacker around or somebody constantly swearing or using offensive language. IP checking is also an important part of an MSM's job as if people make alts, you can prove that by checking their IP. Also, you can ban people through IP, meaning they cannot log on to Sploder using that computer.I would use this when somebody has been hacked; I would IP check the user to see who got in to his account. Game restoring is a completely different thing an MSM can do. If somebody accidentally deletes their game, they can request an MSM to restore it for them.
Define spamming and flaming: Spamming is when a single user or a group constantly post pointless messages full of emoticons or just random letters. In fact they could constantly post just about anything, and it would be spamming.
Flaming is calling members names and cussing them. Sometimes you might hear the term 'flame war'. It means like a serious argument with strong cusses.
This is why I would like to be an MSM.

1.) What being a MSM means to you: A Main Site Moderator is not just for power, or get others to sit on your lap. It's not to ban those you dislike. It's about responsibilities, and how you would volunteer your own time. Make a effort and emotion that you were not force to do this, but willing to do it because you want to, and not get payed at all. A MSM is people keeping everything under control, and letting the bees fly to a flower than to a weed plant. Whoever can make a effort to lead someone a to a bowl of water, but you cannot make them drink. (Leading someone to good deeds, but cannot stop them from doing something.)

2.) Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
Define spamming and flaming:
1. Warning: if a member uses too much cursing language, and most comments are directly to a underage group. They will be given a Fair warning, and lead them to understand the punishments if goes on.

2. Ban: A person that gets banned means, the member broke a rule that is strictly forbidden and/or got many warnings of the same offense.

3. IP Ban: A person that got banned many times, or opened up many accounts for cheating. The person will not be allowed on the website, or create a new account. This may last for 4 months or more depending on the Administrator.

4. Spamming: If someone post comments 3+ in a row can be considered as spam. Even spam can accord in 1 comment that doesn't mean nothing, or a paragraph that repeats over and over. The person could given a warning, or banned.

5. Flaming:  Members  actions of posting deliberately hostile messages on the Internet used mainly by a troll (I consider it as a level 1/2 bullying.)

Experience:

I do speak English and Taking Spanish 1P (A+ 104%)
(Can speak to Spanish speakers.)

1:First if someone does something bad I will give them a warning.
2:If they do it twice they get banned.
3:When they get unbanned if they do it the third time they will be IP blocked. IP blocked means when you have no access to any account on this computer if you use sploder. There is a person that bypassed the sensor alot he is 909admin.
His account in sploder is gone because he got alot of IP blocks. :o

I don't want to be a reviewer and editor now only a moderator. ^-^

What being a MSM means to you:
Been an MSM means to me, getting rid of inappropriate website links and bypassing and spamming and rude usernames and racism etc. It also means to me to keep the MS safe from bully's. I have seen many members get scared of death threats on the MS and I have always wanted to help them by warning/banning the member and comfort the other member(s).

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
 
Game Restoring
Game restoring is when a member has deleted a game and wants the game back. You would use this power when a member asks you to restore a game.

Warning.
A warning is when you warn a member for breaking a minor rule, because sometimes a ban isn't necessary. I would you use a warning in some emoticon spam (several emoticons in many messages) because emoticon spam isn't that bad and isn't worth a ban.

Temporarily Ban a member
A temp ban is when you ban a member for a period of time for something they have done. If a user has ignored warnings or just does something pretty bad they should be temp banned.

Permanently Banned.
A perma ban is when you ban an account permanently (so they they cannot access sploder.com on that account anymore. I would perma ban someone for making inappropriate games bypassing the censor several times etc.

I.P ban
An I.P ban is when the user gets completely banned. Where he can't make another account or anything. I would use an I.P ban when someone has been perma banned and then made another account and on there other account has done the same thing to get themselves perma banned in the first place.
 
What does spamming and flaming mean?

Spamming
Spamming is when a user posts heaps of senseless comments at once. Or just posts heaps of emoticons or posts heaps of links of something etc.

Flaming
Flaming is where someone viciously attacks someone online, derogatory comments towards some ones race or some ones sex or some ones religion or where someone makes personal attacks to a member.

Post by: Hyperlink on April 01, 2013, 05:46 pm
Hello, I am ShatteredGlassX and today I will be applying to be a moderator.

What Being a Moderator Means to Me
To me, a main site moderator is a divine person who enforces the Sploder rules and regulations and does not abuse their power in any way. They obviously strongly abide the rules and help to eliminate any vulgar or aggressive behavior that effects the Sploder community. Though many people would just enjoy getting the badge for the looks and popularity, I would use the badge as a sign that shows that I am one of those divine persons who works with other moderators the help keep Sploder a safe place for all members of all ages, and provides answers to users questions that are efficient and show that we are reliable and responsible people.


Game Restoring
One of the things that MSM's do to help the Sploder community is game restoring. Game restoring is when a member accidentally deletes and(or) logs on to his or here profile and finds a game missing and reports it to a moderator in the game restore request page. A moderator then responds to a members problem and restores the game if possible, if not, the moderator would simply apologize for their inconvenience and explain why they couldn't restore the game. Here is a situation that an MSM could use these powers in: A member logs on to Sploder and looks at their games list, but quickly discovers that his most popular game is missing! So they go to the game restore request page and asks if a moderator could please restore his game, so a moderator sees his request and finally restores his game.


Banning
MSM's also have the ability to ban certain members. Now, the word ban means alot of things when it comes to MSM's, so let me explain all of the different bans. The first ban I will be explaining is the regular ban. A moderator is allowed to ban a person for breaking the Sploder rules and regulations, but only for a certain amount of time, but before they are banned, they will receive a warning from an MSM explaining what they have done wrong and what to expect if they continue in the same way. Another ban I will be explaining is the IP ban. An IP ban is very similar to the regular ban but is also very different at the same time. An IP ban is when a member continues to break the rules after being warned multiple times, and is banned on their IP address, that means, they can try to make as many alts as they want, but they will still be banned on every account they make (For a certain amount of time that is). The last ban I will be explaining is the 'dreaded' Perma-Ban. A Perm-Ban is something given to a member by a moderator that restricts them from entering Sploder forever. But it is only given under special circumstances such as: The member being banned numerous times and still breaking the rules, or doing something that completley violates the Sploder rules and regulations that has affected a numerous amount of members. Here is a situation where an MSM could use these powers: A member starts to threaten another member for awards, and their bad behaviour begins to rise, rise so much that they start to hack random Sploder members, so an MSM sees this happening and instead of sending the user a warning, the MSM IP bans them so that they will will not be able to access Sploder on their computer for a certain amount of time.


The Ban Center
This may not be the proper name for what I am about to talk about, but, the 'Ban Center' is a place where MSM's can view recently reported posts and delete them at ease, view recently reported members and either warn them or ban them, and search for things that violate the rules and regulations using search queries like 'Badwords' or 'Threats'. The 'Ban Center' in the long run, is basically a headquarters for mainsite moderators to communicate with each other and see what to use their powers on.


Deleting Awards
MSM's also have the ability to delete inappropriate awards that may contain rule-violating messages and(or) threats and blackmail. They may also delete awards that are sent by a member to themselves to stop award spamming. Here is a situation that an MSM could use these powers in: A member has recently gotten into an argument with another member, and instead of releasing their anger through commenting, they chose to send the other member awards that contain inappropriate messages full of threats and swearing, so, a MSM sees them on the receiver's profile and quickly deletes them. The MSM then goes to the senders profile and gives him a warning and discusses the problem.

I really hope I get accepted to the MSM team,

What being a MSM means to you: Everything. It means being sensible, mature and respecting rules as usual. People think they can do what they like as a MSM, but It's different for me. I always respect the rules put in my face. Its not the easiest job on Sploder, but I'm up for it. I have seen a few people round Sploder getting bullied. I do all I can to prevent this, but being a mod could make things a lot easier. I could look up the member who has done wrong, and if nessicary, a ban.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in: Moderators on the main site put a stop to the following: Spam, Cussing, Swearing, Bullying, etc. A MSM has the special ability to warn users to let them know that the mods are serious and are not fooling around. Also, after 2 - 3 warnings (maybe more or less depending on what went on), a user should usually get a ban. Moderators can IP ban, too. Which is what they did to Sceptile, and all his alts. The "warning" power, should be used when a member is abusing the rules of Sploder. Bans are used when a user has had around 2 - 3 warnings as said above, but an IP ban is different. It is rare that an IP ban is used, and they are used when the user has dont something really really bad or has abused the rules a lot of his/her time. A mod can also IP check, because, if a user seems suspicious of having an alt, moderators can check to see if that is true...

I hope this is good enough for you guys. I just hope now, as being a MSM was my dream since I first ever went on the MS.

Well I have been on this website 3 months ( not that long) and in that time I've enjoyed it more than anything. In that time I have seen flame wars, cyber bullying, and harsh language. The thing that bothers me is that.....that I can't do anything about it. If I were a MSM I would only use the power given to me to help. I mean how would you feel if you got hacked someone was bullying you and you needed a MSM, and the mod did NOTHING. An appropriate time a mod would give out a warning is if they bypassed the censor, started a flame war or was part of it, or made an inappropriate game. This would NOT be abused and I would make sure that it wasn't. Now banning someone is a whole different story, the appropriate time to ban someone is if you have given them multiple warnings and they will not stop! Say someone made an alt, but they were banned. Well I would ip check them....banned(again), that person does it one more time...ip banned:( i would never enjoy ip banning someone, but it has to be done. A big advantage of me being a MSM is that I'm on the MS almost 24/7. Fyi, Im 14, really mature and thoughtful of others.

If I were to become an MSM, I would make sure every problem has been done and I would always me there to check if it is actually a good reason to be warned or banned.  I would not ban someone for no reason at all and if it is time for them to unbanned I will be active and be there to finish there punishment and I will make sure it is the right time to unban them.

~The MSM Powers~

MSM members keep sploder safe and makes sure it is age appropriate for any age. MSM members have a chance of a life time and they have to work for sploder every day to make sure it is safe. They ban inappropriate things and make sure it is never saw again and make sploder the best website ever.

Warning: Any inappropriate behaviour like spamming, bad graphics, bad games, bypassing, racism should be dealt with as soon as it is saw and if that person keeps doing it and breaking the rules he should be punished.

Banning: A member gets banned after breaking the rules  several times and if it is one time you should give them one more chance because they might not of read the rules, but if he/she does it again they should be banned.

Ip Check: On forums you can only have 1 account on main site you have to have permission to make another account or you must tell mods that it is you because they need to know, keeping it secret will just get you in to trouble.

Quarantining: If a user has misbehaved a lot on the site. A moderator can make this member quarantined. This makes that member under the watch of all moderators in case he/she breaks the rules again

Flagging a game: If a mod finds an inappropriate game they flag it and it goes straight to Geoff so I is deleted so there is no point in making inappropriate games.

Blocking Games/Graphics: This will happen if a moderator find's a game or graphic inappropriate. They can block it so that other members can not see it.

Access to the MSM panel: A moderator can check all of the previous bans and warning they and other moderators have made.

Spam: Any spamming should be dealt with do that person will never never spam again.

Flame: When someone post's rude or offensive messages/insults or racism to another member. May result in what's known as a "flame war"
 
I'm sure I would be a great addition for the Main Site Moderators. If I do pass. I will be sure to help with the best of my abilities.

 What does a Mainsite Moderator means to me?
A MSM is a person who regularly supervises the Mainsite, and under all regulations given, they show their determination by enforcing the 'law' and trying to have the site the site it should be,  punishing those people who just come to make things worse and protecting those from the troubles of spamming and swearing.
 A Moderator is one who purifies the mainsite and makes sure it doesn't eliminate their purpose. They make sure the rules stay where they are and are followed regularly. They are those who make everything the way it should be, the way it is shouldn't be any different. This job is very important, as there are many members full of youth on this website, and without proper and careful moderation, they would be terribly influenced and hurt emotionally by people who shouldn't be there. As I'm aware, constant spamming and swearing would terribly destroy the minds of the youth. This can be proven in many ways; if you go up to a kid in his early age, you would often hear the language that shouldn't be spoken. Think of this, would your grandma approve of bad language?
 Nobody needs bad influences, and the MSM's job is to enforce this and contribute by doing the opposite to make sure the site is clean and spam-friendly.

The MSM can use his/her powers to remove/censor comments anywhere on the main site. This can be used to remove spam and bypass on the mainsite which contributes to the safety of the youth. Unfortunately, it still doesn't meet the satisfaction. There are still games and graphics on the mainsite which should be dealt with; because they are made viewable, the content could easily influence the minds of the youth which is a big problem on the mainsite. As a member of Sploder, I have come across many games or graphics that shouldn't be there. Instead, they should be disposed of and must be kept away from the younger members on Sploder to avoid such serious matter.


The Mainsite Moderator also has the power to ban which is essential regarding the members who are likely to cause trouble although it requires a lot of careful management and responsibility.
This is a stricter punishment and regulation to the people on the MS who don't follow the rules. The MSM are also given the power to warn if they do not follow the rules at first. This could be skipped if the member did something outrageous. However,  This is a very crucial  job, as there are the people who do bad things to an extent where censoring all their comments is not enough, and a ban should meet their demand. However, this sometimes can be a dangerous job, as banning a member who did nothing wrong is not great at all; Instead, this is considered abusive and should be avoided if you are an MSM.  This is the same with issuing warnings, which is also considered abusive, it's a warning to the person who did something wrong. It's like if you attempted to assassinate George Washington for no reason which would cost you some imprisonment.


When I would use these powers and how would I use them? Anytime I see an inappropriate post; for example, a bypass, inappropriate profile description, an inappropriate username, and inappropriate game and so on. In this case, that's the time when a ban/warn is appropriate. I would assume the MSMs are like watch guards, lurking under the street lights and going after the thieves, searching evidence and imprisoning the one found responsible but you'll never know when the members who cause mischief pull the trigger. You could be next. This is basically the reason why we need a MSM to look after Sploder, to make sure it comes clean. No-one enjoys a little splash of blood.

To sum up, the MSM is an important job, and even though if he/she doesn't have to do much work, the very presence of the badge proves that he/she is a MSM and it also proves how strong their determination and commitment can be. The MSM never intends to use their badge for popularity, that would eliminate the purpose of an MSM as they are most likely to abuse their powers. Such contempt would cost them their badge so it's best to use it in the right hands.

Overall, you should vouch me for Moderator. I am those who will intend to use their powers in the right hands, not to abuse it. Secondly, I show some maturity and responsibility in my posts and I am regularly active. I hope to use this job in the right hands and make sure Sploder isn't filled with troublesome menaces who intend to influence the minds of the youth.

You could consider that I am fairly new and I am quite oblivious to the Mainsite rank although I am still familiar with it; I know much information enough to encourage me to write my application. I have took bits from other applications, I'm particularly sorry about that.

Anyway, I hope I make a successful candidate and I hope I have convinced you enough.
Thank you for reading and taking your valuable time.
Apologies for such a long application.
No worries :3

Hmmm...what an MSM means to me. An MSM is a person who moderates to make sure a site is clean and appropriate for all ages. I've been on Sploder since February of 2011, and I may or may not be fit for this job, but I am going to test my luck.

The reason I think I might be a good moderator is I have been through a lot on here, even some brief cases of bullying/cyberbullying from a member or two, and I know how hard it is to ignore the hateful comments and private messages, and people will always say "there not going to do anything! It's just online!" Well, people online do not truly know what is happening in there lives offline and they could be going through a rough time, or they may be being cyberbullyed at another website, and that is the other website's fault for not having moderators on hand, but if we have more moderators on Sploder, stuff like bullying will be stopped.

A moderator bans/warns for...


Flaming, in my opinion, is when a member purposely picks a fight with another about a sensitive subject, causing them both to "flame," or fight, with each other.

Thank you for considering me for Mainsite Moderator.

A Sploder moderator is a user who takes pride and pulls among many who make mistakes. A moderator should have a reasonable meaning of what is correct, and what is incorrect. If something must be delt with, a moderator is whom should do it.

I believe that I would make a good Moderator if I were to be accepted because I am trustworthy, responsible, hard-working, helpful and polite. I also possess gratatude that I believe will help on my journey as a Moderator. I love helping people, whether it be helping someone new, or stopping an arguement for the sake of users to stay safe, and enjoy their time on the site.

A moderator, at all times has prior knowledge to what is correct, and what is incorrect. A simple list will be formed for what I think a moderator should stop / take action towards.


Insults
Spamming
Hacking
Teasing
Flaming
Lying on a continuous basis
Swearing
Violence
Posting inappropriate messages or links
Inappropriate awards
Inappropriate games / graphics

So yeah, I hope you guys all like my application and vote for it. "Peace, out."

Post by: Him on April 05, 2013, 06:35 am
MSM Application:
What being a MSM means to you:
An MSM helps keep the main site clear of spammers, hackers, and other rule-breakers. I want to help with this by becoming an MSM. I believe I qualify for this role. I am mature, so I won't abuse my powers, and I will do my job properly. Maturity is important here, as MSMs get a lot of powers that can be very dangerous if used in the wrong way. I am also active. Being active is very important, as an active MSM can spot more rule-breakers easily, and efficiently. Whereas an inactive MSM can't find many rule-breakers.

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

Warning - A warning is a message to tell a rule-breaker that he/she has broken a rule and carrying on may turn into more severe consequences. This would be issued to users who have broken rules like bypassing, or spamming for the first time, without being warned earlier. But if they carry on, a more severe punishment would be given.

Banning - When a user continues to bypass, spam, or insult other users multiple times after being warned, a ban may be issued. This blocks the user from posting, making awards, and making games, but they can still log in, play games, and view posts. Basically, banning just blocks all forms of communicating with the public, thus preventing the banned user from insulting, spamming or bypassing.

Permanent Ban - Users who break rules like bypassing, spamming or insulting multiple times or take those things to the next level (by this I mean using bypassing a lot more, spamming large messages, insulting using racism, sexism, and get more offensive) can be issued a Perma-Ban. This is when the user cannot do anything with his/her account. They can't even log on. This may also be issued for any other harmful rule-breaking, like abusing powers to harm a different user.

Un-Banning - Pretty self-explanatory. This is used to un-ban banned users, thus allowing them to do what they could normally do. It may be used on people who were banned only for a certain time.

IP Ban - This is the worst of all types of bans. An IP ban is the same as a Perma-Ban, except an IP ban blocks users from accessing an account from the same IP and blocks them from creating another account from the same IP as the IP banned user. Basically, an IP ban blocks someone from getting onto the Sploder site. There is no way they can get on. This would be issued in absolute serious cases like breaking multiple rules multiple times, even after being warned, abusing powers to benefit one member and harm another, abusing alts for your own benefit, hacking etc.

IP Checking - This is used to check an IP of a user, and may be used to find an IP to ban it or to check for alts.

Deleting Messages - MSMs can delete messages with inappropriate or banned content, like spam, insults, racism, sexism, links to inappropriate websites etc. that may have been reported or spotted by the MSM itself.

Game Restoring - MSMs have the power to restore deleted games. This would be used when a user requests to restore a game they may have accidently deleted. MSMs would decide whether it is suitable to be restored or not (a game with inappropriate content would not be restored, but a game that doesn't break any rules would be restored)

Game Flagging - I would use this if I found a game with inappropriate content like insults, sexual references, nude etc. This would send a notification to Geoff. Geoff would then see the game, decide whether it should be deleted, then take action (i.e delete or ignore). Other consequences may be given as well as the deletion, like a warn, or if the user has already received a warning earlier, a ban may be issued.

Deleting Graphics - MSMs have the power to delete graphics with inappropriate content. I'd use this when I find graphics with nude, offensive language, or racism. Inappropriate graphics can easily be found when making PPGs that involve graphics.

Access Moderating Board - The Moderating Board displays all bans, deleted items, warnings etc.

Access Hack Log - This is a log where MSMs can see which IP has accessed which account. This is used to find hackers, accessing other accounts. I would check this regularly, to make sure no one has been hacked, and I'd use it when someone claims that they have been hacked, to see whether or not they are lieing. If the user was hacked, I'd take action by banning the hacker. Another way of finding out whether someone's been hacked is by there actions. If a generally nice person suddenly became mean, or if a person suddenly started making inappropriate games, it'd be suspicious, and then I'd check the Hack Log. If someone is hacking, I'd ban the hacker, as this is quite serious. If the hacker continues hacking using alts, an IP ban may be issued.

Reporting - Both users and MSMs have this power. Messages can be reported to MSMs. MSMs would then decide whether it is inappropriate, and should be deleted.

Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming:
This is the act of posting loads of messages consecutively. These messages can be either advertising, e.g "Play my games and vote them!!!!" or messages with random content, e.g "h42yurgh34ergerg". The advertising messages are to advertise, and the random content ones are to annoy people. People may also spam with smileys, again, to annoy people. Spamming clogs up areas, and is very annoying. A warning can be issued to first-time spammers.

Flaming:
Flaming is the act of posting messages to rudely insult a member. This may include racism, sexism, bypassing etc, and this can be serious. This may happen for various reasons. A warning will be issued to users who do this for the first time. More severe actions would be taken if the user continues to flame.

Final Notes:
Thank you for reading this. I would love to help and keep Sploder clear of the rule-breakers. If I do become a MSM, I promise to be in top form, and always keep a lookout for any rule-breakers. MSMs get a lot of powers, and I understand not everyone can be given it. But I wish I get the MSM job. Thank you.

An MSM is a person who helps the site clear of any disturbing, hurtful or annoying comments or games, to keep this site appropriate for everyone. I've been here since October 2011, so I've had my experience. After my little 7-month-break, I'm back now, and ready to go. Even though I might not be fit for this job, it's worth a go. The reason I think I'm fit for the job is because I have felt hurt on this site times before, and now that I've seen what other people do, I know how to deal with it. This means I know the hurt people can feel, how much it can upset people, I want to see that stop happening. I'm nice, but not afraid to use powers, so I would be good for the job. I know how bullying on this site can seem fine to some people but horrible to the victim, and how the victim could be going through horrible things in real life. But this site is about making games, and I've seen people tease people about how their games are bad. I know how it feels when someone says that something you've done is bad, and I don't want it happening to anyone else.

Moderators are here to warn or ban people for...

Teasing
Spamming
Links to inappropriate sites
Inappropriate things in general
Bullying
Swearing
Threatening
Hacking (this is for IP bans)
Lying lots or hurtfully (like, saying that you have cancer, or saying your dad died, etc)
Insults

Spamming is when a player continuously posts random posts on someone's page, for example:

Post #1: adawjfjhfrerekjnfn
Post #2: iaewfehfqjfije
Post #3: esufhuhefiuaehf (and so on)

Flaming is when someone insults someone about a subject that another user is sensitive about, like deaths, again. This could then result in a 'flame war', when that user attempts to fight back against the other user.

A Moderator is a special trustworthy and responsible member given the all so important job of enforcing the laws of our great little corner of the web. A Moderator must be on the job constantly searching for violations to our terms of service and giving out consequences for these violations. However apart from that they also have the important job of game restoration. A Moderator must not abuse his or her powers but use them only when needed and for the good of the sploder community; he or she must be a good role model to all generations of sploder members and nice to everyone. That is what being a Moderator means to me.

As with every job being a Moderator has some power to it that must not be abused these powers shall be listed below.

Moderation Panel-The Moderation Panel is an additional page only seen by Mainsite Moderators, this page contains all the tools of a Moderator within it; including lists of reported messages, reported pages, warned users, banned users, blocked ip's, users that have reported content, history of warnings and bans, and much more.

IP/Ban- There are 2 types of bans, Ip being the most severe of the 2. A ban should be issued if a user has constantly bypassed, flamed, or made threats against another user. An Ip ban should be issued in the worst of scenarios, for example if a user has created vulgar material in the forum of games, comments, graphics, etc.

Warning- A Warning should be issued if a user has made a minor offense. Example, bypassed a time or two.

Ip Check- An ip check is used to find out the alternative accounts of a user.

Moderate Graphics & Awards- Moderator's have the ability to Delete graphics and awards. However this power should only be used if the graphic and or award contains vulgar content.

Hack Log- Within the Moderation center is a hack log which contains a list of who hacked who and what time, this is good to find out the severity of a situation in a hacking scenario.

Game Restoration- If a user has accidentally deleted a game and they want it back, a Moderator may try to retrieve it, this is a power of theirs.


Spamming: Spamming is the constant or repeated posting of random or the same things.

Flaming: Flaming is an online argument that becomes nasty or derisive, where insulting a party to the discussion takes precedence over the objective merits of one side or another

Why I feel I should be a Mainsite Moderator- I feel I should be a Mainsite Moderator because after over 2 years of being on the site I feel I need to do more, I need to contribute and help the site and being a Moderator would help me achieve this goal of helping the site. I am responsible trustworthy and mature and fully capable of handling the job and responsibilities associated with a Mainsite Moderator. I would also actually focus on my job most of the time and do what is needed of me instead of sitting back on my ass and admiring my shiny badge like the majority of Moderators do. This is why I feel I should be a Mainsite Moderator, thanks for reading.

Post by: KB on April 06, 2013, 02:52 am
What being a MSM means to you:
Been an MSM means to me, getting rid of inappropriate website links and bypassing and spamming and rude usernames and racism etc. It also means to me to keep the MS safe from bully's. I have seen many members get scared of death threats on the MS and I have always wanted to help them by warning/banning the member and comfort the other member(s).

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
 
Game Restoring
Game restoring is when a member has deleted a game and wants the game back. You would use this power when a member asks you to restore a game.

Warning.
A warning is when you warn a member for breaking a minor rule, because sometimes a ban isn't necessary. I would you use a warning in some emoticon spam (several emoticons in many messages) because emoticon spam isn't that bad and isn't worth a ban.

Temporarily Ban a member
A temp ban is when you ban a member for a period of time for something they have done. If a user has ignored warnings or just does something pretty bad they should be temp banned.

Permanently Banned.
A perma ban is when you ban an account permanently (so they they cannot access sploder.com on that account anymore. I would perma ban someone for making inappropriate games bypassing the censor several times etc.

I.P ban
An I.P ban is when the user gets completely banned. Where he can't make another account or anything. I would use an I.P ban when someone has been perma banned and then made another account and on there other account has done the same thing to get themselves perma banned in the first place.
 
What does spamming and flaming mean?

Spamming
Spamming is when a user posts heaps of senseless comments at once. Or just posts heaps of emoticons or posts heaps of links of something etc.

Flaming
Flaming is where someone viciously attacks someone online, derogatory comments towards some ones race or some ones sex or some ones religion or where someone makes personal attacks to a member.

Your suppose to show your friends and tell them to thank you? I didn't knew LOL! Many people put thought in their application and didn't really get people to thank them. I thought spellmage will read each one, not based on thanks. I think it will make the recruitment based on spam. My point of view. The top did made great apps, but talking about many others.

It's the same thing. You recycle the same games or games that didn't get votes or views. and recycle so sploder can be a spam-free environment.

Hello.My name is gamemelody.
To me being a main site moderator means bearing the responsibility of being a responsible member of this website.It also means having authority above other members.This authority must NEVER be abused;but instead be  used to enforce the rules and regulations of
sploder. In addition,it means being a good role model for others to emulate and never making the same mistakes others do.



An msm has the power to issue bans(to people who are ban worthy,of course),issue warnings also and to enforce rules and demand respect(not glory) from the members.

In a situation where a member is constantly swearing and being disrespectful to others,I would first issue a warning.If the same continues,i would ban that person in hopes that they would learn a valuable lesson.


Spam is flooding the Internet(sploder) with many copies of the same
messages which contain unwanted or nonsensical information.

Flaming, also known as bashing, is hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users, often involving the use of profanity.

That concludes my application.

Thank you! ;D

*sigh* listen, screamex, there is very little chance of you becoming a mod today. You are quite new, so will not be trusted as much as a more well known member. That is not to say you will NEVER become a moderator, but again, there is very little chance of it being this time. Don't give up though, because I'm sure one day you can get it.

You all know the following a staff needs to do while hiring another staff:

1. Study carefully the application.
2. Studying the person outside the application.
3. Testing the people.
4. Taking their time.

Just calm down. Who knows this might be a test and like 4 - 7 of you failed right now. Who knows, go grab a coke like he told us and let him take 10 years please.  :))

If you guys are arguing about why screamex might not become a moderator, I have a simple, yet not biased, opinion.

We all know screamex is new. We all know he might not be experienced. We all know what being a moderator is all about. I feel that this recruitment has turned everyone into feeling that this is a competition. Being a moderator is making sure everyone on sploder is having a nice time and stop flaming. But what's happening here? Some of you are arguing with a member that he shouldn't be a moderator? That's not right. If you're looking to be a moderator, don't bring other applicants down. Encourage them. If you look at the bottom of my application (page 13, bottom), and some other applications, it says something like: 'Good luck to all the other applicants!'. This is what should we should be doing. Everyone will, most likely, get the chance to be a moderator. This recruitment could go on for quite a long time, Patience People. However, you lot whom are arguing are kind of decreasing that for yourselves. I would just like this recruitment system to be friendly. Make all new applicants feel welcome. Like you would when a new member joins. But screamex, don't expect to get the moderator rank and assume because a feel soldiers like you, you will get the position. Don't brag, it'll get you no where. It takes quite a lot of work to become one. First application? It's most likely that you won't become a moderator, unless you are really experienced.

I do not want to argue, I just wanted to help you arguers realize what you are doing. I just wanted to stand up and sort things out.

Thanks for taking the time to read and take this in.

What being a MSM means to me.
   
A Main Site Moderator, also known as MSM or moderator, to me is sploder’s most important job.  Without MSM’s, sploder members would do as they please, breaking rules when-ever they feel like it. Sploder would be seriously chaotic. Fortunately, we have well over 50 moderators. Most of them are active. This and other reasons, which will be explained below, is why sploder is hardly chaotic.

At times, being a moderator can be tough. Lots of sorting out reported posts and dealing with reported members. It can take quite a while by yourself. However, if you are prepared to become a moderator, you will consider this part of the job.
A moderator should never abuse their powers. First off, you have EARNED that position, mess up and you’ll never have a chance again. Second off, the members of staff on sploder will lose a lot of respect for you.
A moderator should make sure every-one who may be getting: bullied, bribed or getting death threats, tells a moderator straight away.
Moderators are role models to most people on sploder. They help them when they really need them. Moderators, as they are looked up to, should be mature so other members are like that too.
Moderators must be reliable. If you have worked pretty hard to become a moderator, then you don’t want to make a bad impression by not being reliable.
Moderators must be serious in all situations, unless it’s a general chat with a member. However, when you are handling moderation you have to be serious. The reason being for this is: a member could easily tell another MSM that you are not taking your job seriously and you need to be demoted. Another moderator would then check what you have been saying with ease. Like I always say: ‘It takes a long time to make a reputation and only one word or action to ruin it’.
A moderator must be experienced. I don’t mean already being a moderator particularly, but must know what they are up for.

What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can stop a member doing certain things on sploder because they may have broken the rules.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy thing to do, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 
Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 
Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alternative account to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power. This can sometimes lead to an I.P ban.
 
Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it. You can find that page here:  http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to the hack log ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has logged onto another members account. This is very useful to moderators because they can easily find who logs into an account when and what time.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.

Permanent ban ~ This is the power where a MSM can ban a member forever. This means the member cannot do anything on sploder. You can be un-perma banned. This is usually the type of ban after an I.P ban.



Spamming And Flaming.

Spamming – This is where a member will post many messages on a page/pages. One of the most common ones is: ‘play my games’. Spamming can annoy people because spammers usually bury important messages. Some people spam emoticons: ‘nice game  :) :D ;D :P :D ;D :)  ;D ;D ;D :D :)) :P ^-^  :P’. Spamming is pointless and wastes other people’s time. Spamming usually leads to a warning.

Flaming – This is where two or more people argue about something. It could have started out as a debating and then turned into a full blown argument. Flaming can clog up pages, just like spamming. It wastes time because people like to try and stop the flaming but they just carry on. Flaming can usually lead to a warning. Just like spamming.


Final note.

In conclusion, I think I would make a good moderator for sploder as I know a lot about it, I’m very active and I know what shall be coming my way. I am on sploder everyday apart from when I have no access which is very rarely. If I were to become a moderator I would make sure everyone feels happy on sploder and sort out as much work as I can. I will push everything else out the way just so I can finish my job to keep sploder maintained. I shall also make my self a bit like a tour guide who shows new members what to do. But obviously, not all new members as there are hundreds and maybe thousands, just the ones who ask and REALLY need a guide.

Thanks for reading my MSM application.

If you thank this post and I come a MSM, sploder shall become a better place for everyone and it will be kept maintained.

Good luck to all the other applicants!

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log:The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: I edited my MSM application so if you think I haven't changed it, you are wrong. Read it again. I am happy that Milking and Tommy got the MSM badge. Congratulations to them. If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

What being a MSM means to you:
Been an MSM means to me, getting rid of inappropriate website links and bypassing and spamming and rude usernames and racism etc. It also means to me to keep the MS safe from bully's. I have seen many members get scared of death threats on the MS and I have always wanted to help them by warning/banning the member and comfort the other member(s).

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
 
Game Restoring
Game restoring is when a member has deleted a game and wants the game back. You would use this power when a member asks you to restore a game.

Warning.
A warning is when you warn a member for breaking a minor rule, because sometimes a ban isn't necessary. I would you use a warning in some emoticon spam  and bypassing once or twice or insulting a couple of members and spam and maybe if they send like 1 or 2 links to adult sites.

Temporarily Ban a member.
A temp ban is when you ban a member for a period of time for something they have done. I would use this when a user continues to bypass after he/she has had a warning about it, i would also use this when a particular member is asking for phone numbers and emails and and is sexting with other members, also if a member has ignored warnings about spamming and insulting people.


Permanently Banned.
A perma ban is when you ban an account permanently (so they they cannot access sploder.com on that account anymore. I would perma ban someone for many inappropriate games and very bad bypassing and death threats and threats towards other members, also when a member continues to bypass and spam and insult people.

I.P ban.
An I.P ban is when the user gets completely banned. Where he can't make another account or anything. I would use an I.P ban when someone has been permanently banned and made another alt, and on the alt continuously spamming and bypassing and sending inappropriate links and making inappropriate games.

What does spamming and flaming mean?

Spamming.
Spamming is when a user posts heaps of senseless comments at once. Or just posts heaps of emoticons or posts heaps of links of something or posts a message that is VERY long just to clog up the users comment system, also game spamming is when they make heaps of useless games just to level up.

Flaming.
Flaming is where someone viciously attacks someone online, derogatory comments towards some ones race or some ones sex or some ones religion or where someone makes personal attacks to a member.

Thank you for reading and I hope you thank this post!

Meh, I'll apply.

What being an MSM means to me:
An MSM is an important person in the Sploder Staff.  They ban/warn users violating the Terms of Service.  MSM's keep Sploder a safe place for the community. 

If I were an MSM I would do exactly that.  I would ban/warn users who break the rules.  I would use my powers correctly and not abuse them in any way (shape or form)

Powers of an MSM

Warn: An MSM can warn a user who does something small that violates the ToS.

Ban: If the warned member continues to break the rules an MSM can ban the user, which means he/she cannot log on that account.  The user will be unbanned after some time has passed.

Permanent Ban: If someone  still keeps breaking the rules they would get a permanent ban.  They can not log on EVER.

I.P. Ban: If the same person makes alts to get out of that ban an MSM can I.P. ban them, which bans all accounts on that I.P. and doesn't allow any more accounts to be made on that I.P.

Access to the Moderation Pannel: MSM's can see a special page where they use these powers, along with seeing reported posts or users.

Game Restore: An MSM can restore accidentally deleted games.  They will make sure that it is appropriate before restoring.

Deleting Awards: An MSM can delete Mainsite awards that have swear words in them or bypasses.

Spamming and Flaming

Spamming: Spamming is posting the same thing over and over again in a short period of time.  This will get you warned.

Flaming: Flaming is insulting another member for no reason.  It is not tolerated on Sploder.

Closing

This is my MSM application.  I hope I get accepted, and if I don't, congratulations to the person that does.

What being a MSM means to me.


A MSM has many responsibilities on keeping the Main Sploder website a safe, happy environment for everyone. MSM can ..

1 Moderators have the ability to ban members not using the site correctly, for example, repeatedly
Spamming, advertising other sites, flaming, swearing, cyber bullying, making inappropriate games, after they have been warned. I would ban a member if they just wouldn’t learn from their mistakes after I sent them a warning.

2 Moderators can warn members. Moderators can warn members when they break a rule. After being warned before  few times, moderators can ban that member. I would warn a member if they broke a rule once or twice.

3 Moderators can use an IP check, to see if members have an alt/s. I would find it if a member was banned, and they made another account and did more things against the rules.

4 Moderators can IP ban. IP banning is you ban all the persons alt/s and make it so they can’t even make another account after the IP banned ones. I would probably IP ban after VERY consistent misbehavior.




What is flaming to me:

Deliberate flaming, as opposed to flaming as a result of emotional discussions, is carried out by individuals known as flamers, who are specifically motivated to incite flaming. Flaming can be a heated argument, with inapropriate language or cruel insults, trash talking, etc.

Spamming: Continously writing offensive or annoying messages that hurt others fellings or trying to be  Troll.

Thanks for reading,
Sincerely, Jadenstrand75

You guys do realize that you can't even do anything with it, right?
I looked yesterday. We can see everything you mods have done. I'd delete that eyenstein. Considering your name, that wasn't a very smart move.

What being a MSM means to me:

Being a moderator on the MS means alot to me. I can protect the site from spams, flames and other things the bad Sploder users do. I will not abuse my powers in any way, because that will just lead to a removal of the MSM badge. I will use my powers when I need to because it helps the mods and the other Sploder users that are annoyed with what the banned person is doing.


MSM's Powers:

Warning: Warning is a pretty common thing for the Sploder Users to recieve, after they spam, like: adiljfkdflalkdf or :D :D :D :( :( :(, flame, swear or make inapproprite games once or twice. While warning, the sploder users have to type a code that lets you post on the MS.

Banning: Banning is probably the most common thing on the MS, after someone flames, swears and spams a lot of times. Then the MSMs will ban the user. Banning the user makes the user unable to post, so it helps to stop the user from doing bad things.

I.P check: I.P check helps the moderators to find out if banned users are making alts to avoid bans, they can also check it if they are hacked, which helps track down the hacker.

I.P banning: I.P banning is not that common, it is just like banning, except people with the same I.P are banned, so if they make a alt. They still won't be able to post. It helps with people that are banned and are trying to make alts to *avoid banning*.

Perma banning: Probably the most rarest thing on the MS of Sploder. Perma banning dosen't even allowed the user to log in. Which is great for people that breaks the rules WAY too many times.

The Moderation Panel:
This is a special board and the only board viewed by moderators only. It helps to locate reported users for banning, games or posts so they can delete it.

Game Restore:
The mods can restore games because people request their games to be restored on the game restore page. The mods won't restore games containing inapproprite title or inapproprite gameplay.

Deleting awards:
Mods can delete awards, Moderators delete awards if the awards has bypassing, swearing or flaming on it. The mods won't delete the awards just because the mod dosen't like him.

So to round this up: Moderators can do more than a Reviewer and Editor.

~I hope you guys enjoy my application~

Post by: Red on April 10, 2013, 12:20 pm
Hello. I am here to tell you why I think I'd be a good moderator. I am online almost all day everyday, (yup, I gots no life) and would love to help keep sploder a safe place. Many times I have found someone being bullied, or something innapropriate, on the mainsite, yet have been unable to do anything about it. And not being able to help greatly aggravates me.

I would love to be able to help, yet do not have the ability, so if I was made a moderator, I would finnaly be able to contribute to sploder!


what being a moderator means to me

Well, as I have  mentioned before, I truly want to contribute to sploder community. So I would gladly help in keeping sploder safe with the moderator badge. I have tried my best to help people on the main site with their bully problems, and other such thing, but, I can only really help them with the bully aspect by asking a moderator. And, by the time they can reply and do something... The damage has already been done. So, if I was moderator I could help those members so much more, without having to wait for another moderator. I would use my new powers wisely, and properly. This is what being a moderator means to me.

What powers a moderator has

Warning

A verbal warning to those who bully or spam, to let them know that they are doing wrong and a moderator is watching them. This will also give them an extra message to type when trying to post a message, to remind them even more what they do/did is wrong, and a moderator is keeping an eye on them.

Banning

If a member does not heed the warning, the moderator has the ability to ban him/her. This will mean he cannot post any more messages. He may still make games, however, so should still probably be watched in case of innapropriate games.

IP check

If a member is banned, he/she is likely to want to crate another account to get around this ban. If the moderator suspects a certain member of being an alt, he can IP check the two accounts to see if they're the same.

Flagging to geoff

If the moderator finds an inappropriate game, or an account that needs deleting for whatever reason, he can flag either of these for geoff to delete.

IP ban

If the offending member has ignored his warning, and tried to get around his ban with an alt, yet continues to offend, the moderator has the ability to IP ban that member. This will mean he cannot access his account, make games, post a comment, or even make a new account. This should only be used as a last resort.

I would not misuse these powers, rather, I would use them to the best of my ability to help sploder.

Define spamming and flaming

Spamming

This is to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder, or to constantly harrass a member with immature annoyance. This could be advertising his/her website, game, or asking for awards.

Flaming

Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder users, often involving the use of profanity.


Final note

As I have mentioned multiple times, but only to get the point across, I would use all of this to the best of my ability, to keep sploder a safe and child-friendly place.

                                                         
                                               ~Thank you very much for reading this.~

What being a MSM means to you: Being A MSM would be a massive accomplishment to me. I would not only think that i have proven to the MS staff I am worthy of such a responsibility, but I have proven to myself that I am growing up and also becoming more mature as each day passes.
Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
A MSM can issue a Warn to Users. They can Ban a user, and block an IP address. It can view reported users and can view what other Moderators have done and how long ago (roughly). Also, a Moderator can moderate graphics (delete) and can view the hack log. (If a user has more than 1 failed attempt it will appear in the hack log, the user/ip loggin into which users account.
Define spamming and flaming: Spamming is where a user repeatedly posts a comment. Flaiming is where a user wants to get a reaction from somebody, for example: User: hi User1:bob User: stop saying that User1: Bob User: STOP SAYING THAT!
It is usually a aggressive reaction intended.

What a mod means to me: Everything. I feel the same way. I been on here for a couple of months. I am a noob right now I get it. But I have seen cussing, flaming, bullies, hatred everything. That even hhappend with me. I got hated on. I hated going on my page seeing people curse and threaten and all ythat crap. And when I ask a moderator he gets back to me in like 3 days, where If I was a moderator I could get it done THERE and THEN. You need to be sensible, I might not be the most sensible but we have all these bully groups that are great and stuff but a mod keeps things in shape. I would dislike I.P. banning but it has to be done. If enough people thank me that will be one of the greatest decisions of your life. And someday I hope to go to my homepage and see that mod. badge filled in the slot.

A Mainsite Moderator is a member that has been given the all so important job of enforcing the terms of service (the sploder law) and overall protecting the site. He or she must be responsible, trustworthy, and capable of handling the responsibilities. He or she must also be a good role model to the other members and not abuse his or her powers but rather use them for the well being of the sploder mainsite. That is what being a Mainsite Moderator means to me.

As with any other job there are some powers associated with being a Moderator, these powers are listed below.

Moderation Panel: The Moderation Panel is a special page only view able to Mainsite Moderators, the page contains all the powers or tools of a Moderator. These tools include list of reports, bans issued, warnings issued, hack log, and more.

Warn- The Warning is the most basic tool of a Moderator, it is to be issued for the most minor offenses, example: bypassing a time or two.

Ban - A ban is to be issued to users that have broken the terms of service or have repeated offences. Example: threatened users, spammed or posted profanity.

Ip Check- IP check is used to find out the alternative accounts of a user.

Hack Log- The hack log is to find out who has hacked who and what time.

Award and Graphic Moderation- A Moderator has the power to delete graphics and awards, however it should only be used if the the graphic and or award contains vulgar material.

Game Restoration - Game restoration is a Moderation tool in which a Moderator can restore a deleted game of a user.

Spam- Spamming means the constant posting of something usually of the same thing.

Flaming- A flame war is a heated argument between two individuals, that results in those involved posting personal attacks on each other during or instead of debating the topic at hand.

I think that I should be a Moderator because I am responsible, trustworthy, and mature. I would be a good role model to every member and I would take my job seriously. I would focus on my job almost always and actually do stuff instead of sit on my ass doing nothing like many Moderators of today. I am fully capable of handling the responsibilities and am confident that I would be one of the greatest Moderators in the history of this site.

Thank you for reading my short but sweet application

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log: The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: I edited my MSM application so if you think I haven't changed it, you are wrong. Read it again. I am happy that Milking and Tommy got the MSM badge. Congratulations to them. If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

What being a MSM means to you: Being a mainsite mod means a lot to me. Sploders given me a lot over the years I've been here and I finally decided I wanted to give something back. What better way than to make it a more friendly place for the countless new users who join sploder every day? It also means helping. Any of you on the forum who have seen me for long enough know this is not something I usually do. However, on the forums I have expectations after spending more time on it than on the mainsite. So I know what can happen on the mainsite and I believe it is the job of a MSM to help the newer people and make it a safer place for the young kids that join. It also means to educate and help. I remember when I was a noob I needed that help and guidance, and seeing as I joined before MSM's were introduced, I realise just how much they are needed. MSM's need to teach the new people what is right and wrong on this site and what everything on this site does and what the jobs are.
Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in: Long list coming up:
Viewing reported comments: MSM's can see comments reported by the general population. These appear on a place called the moderation panel. Mods read the reported comment and see if any of them break the ToS. You would probably use it every time you moderated as it is the most used thing the general population of the mainsite can do when they see a comment they believe breaks the rules.
IP Checking: IP checking is when a mod can see the IP address of a user. This is like their digital address and allows people to find the location of a user and more importantly for MSM's, allows them to check if a user had an alt. This would be used if a member had broken the the rules and been banned, and to check if they had any alts. If so, their alts would probably be watched and if it was a serious offence the alt might be banned immediately.
The Hack Log: The hack log tells mods when someone has tried to access an account, the date the person tried to access the account and who's account they attempted to access. If someone does get onto an account and tries to change account details, it would appear on the hack log. Mods would use it when trying to track down hackers and give people their accounts back.
Warnings: Warning is what mods do to people who make an offence that is not ban worthy, and to educate people about what they did wrong and what would happen if they do it again. These warnings go away after 3 months. Mods would use these when they see a reported post or a something that breaks the ToS that isn't massively bad and try to educate people about what was wrong with what they did.
Banning/IP Banning: Banning is what a mod can do when they see a user make multiple offences or a large offence. A banned user cannot post or make awards. IP banning is what a mod can do when they see multiple users under the same IP breaking the rules. An IP ban bans all accounts under that IP address. It would be used only under the most extreme cases, like Sceptiles.
Graphic Moderation: Moderators can, amazingly, moderate graphics! This is were they block graphics that are inappropriate, e.g pornographic graphics. Moderators would use this when they find a graphic that breaks the Terms of Service.
Award Administration: This is where Moderators can delete awards. They would use this when they found inappropriate awards and spam awards.
Game Restoration: Moderators can restore peoples games. Mods would use this when a member contacted them and asked for a game they had published with less than 30 views that they accidently deleted and want to get back.
Define spamming and flaming: Spamming is when a member sends messages/awards at a stupid amount at a fast rate. They could post hundreds of pointless messages on a single game or group or on a members page. Award spam is when a member sends loads of awards to a single person, possibly with something offensive written on them. Game spam is publishing the same gam over and over again to level up quickly. Flaming usually evolves from an argument and contains messages of members being nasty to each other, often using offensive words that could be considered racist or discriminatory. Other times the words could just be swears.

If I were to be a moderator, I would help to keep sploder safe, and at an appropriate level for the large amounts of children that use this site. I Think I would be a good choice for moderator, because of my large desire to help others. And I hope that I have shown that I am ready for the title of moderator. I would do my best to help to help all the members of the mainsite, and use my powers appropriately.

What being a moderator means to me

I wouls love to be chosen for moderator for many reasons. The first being that this was the badge, I had alsways wanted the most. And I've always had a healthy desire to help others on the main site, as seen through my little group I had on there, to protect sploder haha. I thought it was so big and strong at the time, however, when I had found a bully, I had to wait for a moderator to reply and take action. Which, of course, if I had been moderator myself I could have taken action immediately, and prevented any more harm coming. But I just had to wait for the other mods to see my post, which could have been lost in a sea of other requests. So, to help others, and to be a respectable member of the sploder community, as well as to be a role model for the newer members. is what being a main site moderator means to me.

A moderators powers

Warning

If the moderator has found an offending member, he will give him a verbal warning. this will hopefully prevent any other offense from this member.

Banning

If the offending member has ignored previous warnings, and continued to break the rules in whichever way, the moderator must ban him. This means he cannot post any more messages, but can still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects a member of being an alt of a previously banned member, to get around the ban, or the member thinks he has been hacked, the moderator can check the IP adress of that member. This will show either if that member is an alt, or whether another member has been hacked, and by who.

IP ban

If the offender has been banned, but made an alt to avoid the ban, and continued to offend, the moderator must IP ban him. This means he cannot post, and he cannot make ANY more accounts.

Flagging games or accounts to geoff

If there is a banned user, or innappropriate game on the main site, he will flag them to geoff for deletion.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming
Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder members, often involving the use of profanity.
 
Flaming is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator would mean a lot to me. In the past, I have seen many members been bullied or tormented, and I could not do anything about it. Sploder is targeted for young children, and inappropriate games, messages, and graphics would not be a good thing for them to see. Moderators can stop this from happening. If I could become one, I would use my moderator powers wisely. Without moderators, Sploder would not be a fun website like Geoff wants it to be. I have always admired moderators, and I would love it if I could help out.

Powers, what they do, and the appropriate situations to use them in:

Warning: If a user has broken a rule, such as spamming, insulting, advertising, and using naughty language, a moderator can give that user a warning, telling them what they have done wrong. When the user logs in, they will see the warning. Hopefully, this will prevent the user from breaking anymore rules. Moderators can also post on a user's profile if they are slightly breaking a rule. This is called a verbal warning.

Ban: If a user continues to do the same stuff that got them warned, that could result in a ban. A ban is when you lose your privilege of writing comments. Also, creating inappropriate graphics or games, rude/insulting messages, bullying, could also result in a ban. Hopefully, that would teach the member to get their act together and obey the rules, so no more trouble would be caused.

IP Banning/checking: Moderators have the ability to IP check a user. An IP address is a numerical label given to each device that uses Internet Protocol for communication, such as a computer. Therefore, if two users have the same IP, the moderators know that the users are the same people or use the same computer. If a user is banned already, and the moderators are suspicious of another user, the moderators are able to check that user's IP to see if they are the same user. If it is, the moderator, will use an IP ban, which I'll get to later. Also, if a user claimed that they were hacked, moderators can check if the account was being accessed from a different IP address.

Flagging: Moderators have the power to flag a game, if it has inappropriate content. This game will later get deleted by Geoff, if he decides to.

Restoring a game: If a user has deleted a game on accident, or a hacker has, moderators have the great ability to bring the game back, if it does not contain inappropriate content.

Quaranting: If a member is making graphics or games that break the rules, writing rude comments, etc., moderators can make it so that all moderators can keep an eye  on that user.

Mod panel/Hack log: The moderator panel is a place that moderators have access to, which shows the latest bans, warnings, reported content, and blocked IP addresses.
They can access the hack log, where they can see where each member logged in from, and how many times it took them. They can also IP check members, and see possible game spammers.

Perma ban: A perma ban, short for permanent ban, is given if a user has broken the rules many times even after they were warned, and banned. The account can not be accessed ever again.

Defining flaming and spamming:

Spamming: Spamming is the act of posting something obnoxious repeatedly to get attention or disturb others. This is a problem on the MS, where smileys are used inappropriately.

Flaming: The act of sending nasty messages, that are rude and offensive, which leads to the trading of insults between users. Soon, if enough people start flaming, it could turn into a flame war.

Final notes:

Being a moderator is a great responsibility. Sploder needs to be a fun-for-all place that users can enjoy, so it should be that way. Thank you if you have read this whole application.

If I were to be a moderator, I would help to keep sploder safe, and at an appropriate level for the large amounts of children that use this site. I Think I would be a good choice for moderator, because of my large desire to help others. And I hope that I have shown that I am ready for the title of moderator. I would do my best to help to help all the members of the mainsite, and use my powers appropriately.

What being a moderator means to me

I would love to be chosen for moderator for many reasons. The first being that this was the badge, I had always wanted the most. And I've always had a healthy desire to help others on the main site, as seen through my little group I had on there, to protect Sploder. I thought it was so big and strong at the time, however, when I had found a bully, I had to wait for a moderator to reply and take action. Which, of course, if I had been moderator myself I could have taken action immediately, and prevented any more harm coming. But I just had to wait for the other mods to see my post, which could have been lost in a sea of other requests. So, to help others, and to be a respectable member of the Sploder community, as well as to be a role model for the newer members. is what being a main site moderator means to me.

A moderators powers

Warning

If the moderator has found an offending member, he will give him a verbal warning. this will hopefully prevent any other offense from this member.

Banning

If the offending member has ignored previous warnings, and continued to break the rules in whichever way, the moderator must ban him. This means he cannot post any more messages, but can still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects a member of being an alt of a previously banned member, to get around the ban, or the member thinks he has been hacked, the moderator can check the IP adress of that member. This will show either if that member is an alt, or whether another member has been hacked, and by who.

IP ban

If the offender has been banned, but made an alt to avoid the ban, and continued to offend, the moderator must IP ban him. This means he cannot post, and he cannot make ANY more accounts.

Flagging games or accounts to geoff

If there is a banned user, or innappropriate game on the main site, he will flag them to geoff for deletion.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming
Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder members, often involving the use of profanity.
 
Flaming is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

Send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder. For reasons either to advertise, or to annoy.

Hello, Luca1673 here today I am going to tell you what a being a Moderator means to me...

It means being an assistant of the site and and deleting the inappropriate things that members do because there are a lot of children in this site and it is not nice for children to see things like that. I'm a 8 year-old child myself

Banning
Moderators Ban members if they do inappropriate things on Sploder.e.c.t. Splode! That is not very nice. Once I got banned for swearing so I never did it again. If you are banned, your ban might be for 2 weeks or 1 month.

Warnings
If you are warned It means you did something rude. If you get 2 warnings you get Banned for 2 weeks or 1 month.

I.P Blocked
If you get I.P Blocked that means you have Bypassed 2 warnings and 1 ban. Sceptile was I.P blocked because he made a alt account called GhostSceptile. Here is the link:http://www.sploder.com/games/members/ghostsceptile/

Flaming
Flaming is when you post mean comments to them that threaten the member who received the comment it can be anything that can hurt the members feelings.

Spamming
Spamming means keep posting the same comment that is rubbish and annoys the member.


That is how I feel being a Moderator and I hope I am one of them in the future.

What being a MSM means to me:

Being a moderator on the MS means alot to me. I can protect the site from spams, flames and other things the bad Sploder users do. I will not abuse my powers and use the powers correctly. Being a moderator takes hard work and that is why I am up for the job.

Powers of MSMs:

Warning: Warning is a very common thing for the Sploder Users to recieve. It can happen when they spam, flame or post inapproprite content. They simply get a warning, which won't effect them much.

Banning: Banning is probably the most common thing on the MS, after someone flames, swears and spams plenty of times. Then the MSMs will ban the user. Banning the user makes the user unable to post, so it helps to stop the user from doing bad things. They get unbanned when their time is up.

I.P check: I.P check helps the moderators to find out if banned users are making alts to avoid bans, they can also check it if they are hacked, which helps track down the hacker. The hacker can also be I.P banned.

I.P banning: I.P banning is not that common, it is just like banning, except people with the same I.P are banned, so if they make a alt. They still won't be able to post. It helps with people that are banned and are trying to make alts to *avoid banning*, so if you make a account, it gets banned.

Perma banning: Probably the most rarest thing on the MS of Sploder. Perma banning dosen't even allowed the user to log in. Which is great for people that breaks the rules WAY too many times, like 7-9.

The Moderation Panel:
This is a special board and the only board viewed by moderators only. It helps to locate reported users for banning, games or posts so they can delete it. It helps the Sploder site quite alot.

Game Restore:
The mods can restore games because people request their games to be restored on the game restore page. The mods won't restore games containing inapproprite title, gameplay or graphics.

Deleting awards:
Mods can delete awards, Moderators delete awards if the awards has bypassing, swearing or flaming on it. The mods won't delete the awards just because the mod dosen't like him.

Define Flaming: Flaming is when a user yells an spams and talk to a person in a very rude way, such as in all caps, or using emotes.

Define Spamming: Spamming is when a user posts the same posts quickly in a short period of time.

So to round this up: Moderators can protect the site and keep Sploder safe.

What Being an MSM means to me-

Being a moderator is a very important job that comes with a lot of responsibility. It means protecting this website from inappropriate content, preventing flame wars, and anything else to make sploder as kid-friendly as possible. I am ready to help my fellow members at all costs if I were to become one.

MSMs powers:

Warning: A very basic power for the moderator and common for them to use. If a sploder member commits spam, takes part in flaming, or post inappropriate content, they will receive a warning. This isn't as bad as a ban, but it is basically saying that the member should be careful about what they do.

Banning: One of the worst things a member can receive and possibly the most common power used by the MSMs. If a user flames/spams too much, posts a lot of inappropriate content, they will receive a ban, possibly temporary on permanent. If they try to escape a ban by creating an alt, they will be IP banned which prevents them from making another alt.

Ip check: Ip checking is what moderators use to find out if any members have a matching IP or if a certain member is using an alt.

Game restoring: A MSM can try to restore a game if they have been accidentally deleted by another member.

Blocking: If a game or graphic is inappropriate for this website, a moderator can block it. This makes it so that only MSMs can view the content.

Quarantining: If a member has spammed a lot, flamed, bypassed etc. an MSM can quarantine them to put them under watch of all MSMs.

Flagging: A game is inappropriate, the MSM can flag it so that geoff can decide weather or not to delete it.

Access to the Moderation Panel: The moderation panel is where the moderators can view the recent bans, reported content, and block IPs.

Definition of Spamming and Flaming

Flaming: Flaming is where users take the act of insulting others regarding their sexuality, race, family, etc.

Spamming: Spamming is the act of re-posting the same games, graphics or messages which may be used for advertisement or to irritate someone.

Final words: If I were to be a Main Site Moderator, I would try to the best of my abilities to make this website as safe as possible. I do not wish for these innocent people to be exposed to inappropriate things, so I want to be a moderator to prevent these things from happening. I really hope you all think I am ready for the job.

What being a MSM means to me.
   
A MSM to me, also known as a moderator or a main site moderator, is the most needed, popular and important job on sploder. Without out huge team of MSM’s, sploder would be very chaotic.
Rarely, a MSM’s job can be tough. Long hours sorting out reports and more. However, as a MSM, you have to be up for the challenge.
A MSM should never abuse their powers, you will have great respect loss from other members and will never have the shot at MSM again.
A MSM should be responsible to make sure member who may be getting: bullied, bribed or getting death threats, tells a moderator straight away.
MSM’s are role models to many members on sploder. They help them when they really need them. MSM’s should be mature and respectable as they are looked up to.
MSM’s should be serious in all of their moderator situations. If you are caught messing around and being immature with your powers, a member can easily report the MSM’s behaviour to another moderator. The moderator can then see their activity to see if they’re telling the truth. The word will finally will soon get to Geoff, then he shall demote you, most likely.
A MSM must be a bit experienced, not entirely but enough to know what to do briefly.


What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can stop a member doing certain things on sploder because they may have broken the rules.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy thing to do, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 
Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 
Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alternative account to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power. This can sometimes lead to an I.P ban.
 
Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it. You can find that page here:  http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.

Permanent ban ~ This is the power where a MSM can ban a member forever. This means the member cannot do anything on sploder. You can be un-perma banned. This is usually the type of ban after an I.P ban.



Spamming And Flaming.

Spamming – This is where a member posts repeatedly on different or the same pages. Spam messages usually contain: advertising, over-used emoticons or/and hate messages. Spamming can be annoying because it buries more important messages. It wastes time and is very pointless. This usually leads to a warning.

Flaming – This is where a group of members will argue over something that is pointless, commonly religion. People think flaming is acceptable because they are just trying to prove a point, which is wrong. Flaming wastes people’s time because they dislike people arguing and try to calm it down. Flaming usually leads to a warning.

Final note.

In conclusion, I think I should become this week’s MSM because I’m highly experienced on sploder, I am active and mature enough to keep a good MSM reputation. I can help and maintain sploder a lot and cover all the criteria of what a MSM should have.  I never give up as you can see from around 10 applications to be MSM that failed. I really hope you find my application worthy and thank it.

Thanks for reading my MSM application.

Good luck to all the other applicants!

What a moderator means to me, is a POWERFUL job, with many tools and powers, that can use the BIG following,


FLAMING: Being bad, saying bad words, and you can get banned for a few weeks doing this. Do not show inappropriate content, sexual content, violent, and other.


SPAMMING: You spam 2-6 messages, that is fine.
But never spam something bad, or else, you are in trouble.
It is very bad to do that, and you can get banned, for a MONTH.


WARN: Warn, not much, just don't do the same thing you did again, or you are BANNED. No bad words, content, or stuff.


BAN: NEVER EVER get banned, you can get banned on Sploder for a month! MAYBE 6!


I.P BAN: 1-3 accounts can be made. ONLY. Or else ALL of your accounts are deleted.


GAME RESTORE: Moderator tool, where splodans accidently deleted their games.


MODERATOR PANEL/PAGE: Special page, where only MODERATORS can go.


I.P CHECK: Same, just only they check the emails and other stuff.

That is what I REALLY want, and I hope I get it, I did my best, and MSM has 10 powers, and tools!


I HOPE I GET PICKED GUYS THANK YOU IF YOU THANK ME!


I am really capable of handling the MSM. I really REALLY love it if you give me the badge.

What being a MSM means to you: To feel good.
Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in: Banning, Warning, Special Situations.
Define spamming and flaming: When its bad, i delete it.

Congratulation to Poke.



What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log: The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: I edited my MSM application so if you think I haven't changed it, you are wrong. Read it again. I am happy that Milking and Tommy got the MSM badge. Congratulations to them. If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

Post by: Jagger on April 22, 2013, 11:31 am
What being a MSM means to me;

A Mainsite Moderator means to me, time, dedication, trust, and helpfulness. Time, because you have to give time to listen to what peoples issues are, and what has happened to them, and how you can help. Dedication, because you are dedicating time to the site, which you could be spending somewhere else but you choose not too. Trust, because people on the Mainsite will have to trust their issues with you. If they don't trust you they won't ask for your help, or let you deal with any of their issues. Finally, helpfulness. Helpfulness, seeing as you will have to be helpful to users who don't have the same powers and you and will need someone to help them with their issues/problems. I believe I can do all this. I'm willing to help absolutely anybody, no matter who they are, there is no point in judging people for who/what they are.

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

Ban - A ban is when a user's account is banned from Sploder, this could be 3 days, a week, a month, or even permanently. I would use the 'ban' command when a user had been warned for something and carried on, or alts of a banned member, or some extreme conditions.

IP Ban - An IP Ban is nearly the same as the 'ban' command, only it bans a users IP address. This means a user cannot create anymore accounts on Sploder. I would use the 'IP Ban' command either in extremely extreme conditions (Like if Geoff got hacked but that won't happen lol) or if a user made a ban evasion, or just multiple alts while the user is banned.

Warn - A warn is when a user is warned for a action, examples: Mild bypassing, mild spamming, attempted hack (but didn't actually hack). I would use a warn if it was a first offensive or a mild case.

Hack log - The hack log is where Mainsite Moderators can check if there has been a hack, or an attempted hack. I would use the hack log if a user had claimed to be hacked/attempted hack.

IP check - An IP check is when a user is thought to have alts (ex: ban evasion, hacking) This means all accounts that match the same IP will come up together. I would use IP checker if I believe someone has been hacked/ban evasion.

Game restoration -  The game restoration is when a game has been lost and the owner would like it retrieved. I would use the game restoration if somebody requested a game to be restored.

Spamming -  Spamming is utterly useless comments being posted over and over again, example: "jfdkh" Posted 10 times on 7 users pages would be spamming.

Flaming - Flaming is mostly used in arguments to gain advantage, example "You're a stupid splode" Would be flaming. Flaming is mostly useless and quite horrible to some other players.

If I were to be a moderator, I would help to keep sploder safe, and at an appropriate level for the large amounts of children that use this site. I Think I would be a good choice for moderator, because of my large desire to help others. And I hope that I have shown that I am ready for the title of moderator.

 I would do my best to help to help all the members of the mainsite, and use my powers appropriately.

What being a moderator means to me

I wouls love to be chosen for moderator for many reasons. The first being that this was the badge, I had always wanted the most. And I've always had a healthy desire to help others on the main site, as seen through my little group I had on there, to protect sploder haha. I thought it was so big and strong at the time, however, when I had found a bully, I had to wait for a moderator to reply and take action. Which, of course, if I had been moderator myself I could have taken action immediately, and prevented any more harm coming. But I just had to wait for the other mods to see my post, which could have been lost in a sea of other requests.

 So, to help others, and to be a respectable member of the sploder community, as well as to be a role model for the newer members. is what being a main site moderator means to me.

A moderators powers

Warning

If the moderator has found an offending member, he will give him a verbal warning. this will hopefully prevent any other offense from this member.

Banning

If the offending member has ignored previous warnings, and continued to break the rules in whichever way, the moderator must ban him. This means he cannot post any more messages, but can still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects a member of being an alt of a previously banned member, to get around the ban, or the member thinks he has been hacked, the moderator can check the IP adress of that member. This will show either if that member is an alt, or whether another member has been hacked, and by who.

IP ban

If the offender has been banned, but made an alt to avoid the ban, and continued to offend, the moderator must IP ban him. This means he cannot post, and he cannot make ANY more accounts.

Flagging games or accounts to geoff

If there is a banned user, or innappropriate game on the main site, he will flag them to geoff for deletion.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming
Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder members, often involving the use of profanity.
 
Flaming is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

Send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder. For reasons either to advertise, or to annoy.


                                                      Final note

  I truly want to be a moderator, because I think I am ready. I have a healthy desire to help people, and hope that other people see this.

           Thank you very much for reading this, and good luck to the others.

A moderators powers Nice but I am afraid that if you will be a Moderator you are gonna ban me and my friends. Like on the S.C.O.U.R.G.E. you were being rude to me and empirestatebuilding. And I need to know that if you are a Moderator I win't get banned by you for do NOTHING at all? Are you picking up what I'm putting down?

What being a MSM means to me.

   
A MSM to me is sploder’s most important and most needed job. Being a moderator is a lot of work; this means a moderator needs a few qualifications to become one. They shall be posted below.

Quite Rarely, AMSM’s job can be pretty tough. Maybe there are lots of reports and things. But as a MSM, you have to be up for it

A MSM should be active. Every day, there are around 100 reports and only about 50 moderators, half are pretty in-active. If every moderator was active, reports would get done very easily.
A MSM should make everyone who’s getting: bullied, bribed or even rarely death threats should tell a moderator straight away.

A MSM should have control over all members who break the rules, not by just simply banning them, but telling them what they have done wrong and take time with them. If you simply just ban them, it could get them agitated.

MSM’s are role models to many members on sploder. When a member needs it, A MSM helped. MSM’s should be mature and respectable as they are looked up to.

MSM’s should be serious in all of their moderator situations. If you are caught messing around and being immature with your powers, your badge and powers shall be taken away very easily.

A MSM should not just want to be a MSM to just show off their badge, but to want to contribute to help sploder.

A MSM must be a little bit experienced to know what being a MSM is like. Not knowing everything, just some things.


What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can stop a member doing certain things on sploder because they may have broken the rules.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy thing to do, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 
Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 
Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alternative account to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power. This can sometimes lead to an I.P ban.
 
Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it. You can find that page here:  http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.

Permanent ban ~ This is the power where a MSM can ban a member forever. This means the member cannot do anything on sploder. You can be un-perma banned. This is usually the type of ban after an I.P ban.



Spamming And Flaming.


Spamming – This is where a member posts multiple times on (commonly) a: members/game/review page. Spamming usually advertises, which wastes other members and moderators time. It wastes member’s time because spamming can sometimes bury important messages and makes it harder to find important ones, depending how many spam messages there are. It wastes a moderator’s time because they have to deal with all the spam reports. Spamming usually leads to a warning.

Flaming – This is where 2 or more members argue over a subject. One of the most common flame wars start with religion. Flaming can put a bad reputation on you as you look stupid arguing over something, usually, stupid. Flaming can be pretty annoying. Flaming usually leads to a warning/ban.


Final note.

In conclusion, I think I should become the MSM this week as I qualify all of the qualifications that I named and I never give up. If you found my application, I would be honored if you were to thank it, I promise that I will be become a good MSM if I become one this week.

Thanks for reading my MSM application

Good luck to all the other applicants!

What a moderator means to me, is a POWERFUL job, with many tools and powers, that can use the BIG following,


FLAMING: Being bad, saying bad words, and you can get banned for a few weeks doing this. Do not show inappropriate content, sexual content, violent, and other.


SPAMMING: You spam 2-6 messages, that is fine.
But never spam something bad, or else, you are in trouble.
It is very bad to do that, and you can get banned, for a MONTH.


WARN: Warn, not much, just don't do the same thing you did again, or you are BANNED. No bad words, content, or stuff.


BAN: NEVER EVER get banned, you can get banned on Sploder for a month! MAYBE 6!


I.P BAN: 1-3 accounts can be made. ONLY. Or else ALL of your accounts are deleted.


GAME RESTORE: Moderator tool, where splodans accidently deleted their games.


MODERATOR PANEL/PAGE: Special page, where only MODERATORS can go.


I.P CHECK: Same, just only they check the emails and other stuff.

That is what I REALLY want, and I hope I get it, I did my best, and MSM has 10 powers, and tools!


I HOPE I GET PICKED GUYS THANK YOU IF YOU THANK ME!


I am really capable of handling the MSM. I really REALLY love it if you give me the badge.

What being a MSM means to me: It is an important job to make sure that people are fallowing the rules and that people are doing the right thing and not the wrong thing. Being MSM is a serious job! I understand how a MSM works.

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

Warn: Warn them to not do it again. I would use it when they broke a rules,
but didn't do it a lot just a little bit.

Ban: If they break a lot of rules they get ban and they get blocked on doing certain things for 2 weeks or longer. I would use it when they break too many rules and may deny there warning then keep on doing it.

Permanent Ban: Same thing as banning but they are ban forever. I will use this when the member did a seriously bad thing.


Flaming: When someone is cyber bullying, saying bad words, saying insults, saying very inappropriate words, creating inappropriate games or games to insult someone.

Spamming: Posting too many of the same messages in a row I say about 5 or 6 is spamming.

Hey guys! What's up? Screamex is giving it another try!
After long hours of research I have come to the conclusion that: Being a mod is a hard job, its not easy, you have to be dedicated. Tell you what, this site is my life, I'm addicted!

Powers of Moderators:
Warnings: A time to use warnings would be when somebody is in a flame war, or bypassing the censor.

Bans: You would ban somebody when they had multiply bypassed the censor and wont listen, or they have possibly made a very inappropriate game.

Ip: Ip banning is very important, if someone posts porn on the ms...there are children with and it would be dealt with quickly.

That concludes this session guys. See ya later!

What being a MSM means to me:

Being a moderator means alot to me, I can protect the site from daters, flamers and spammers. I've recently learned the moderator's jobs, so now I know what the job intails. Being a moderator is hard and I may or may not get the badge, but I am going to give it a try. A moderator is a very important role of Sploder. It helps protect Sploder, which the other roles cannot do.

Powers Of a MSM:

Warn: This is a very common thing on Sploder, it usually happens when a person does something bad once or twice. A warning helps the member to know that they did something wrong, but still it dosen't really affect them much.

Ban: Also a common thing, it happens when a person breaks rules several times or they keep doing bad things after their warning. Banning makes the person unable to post, so in the ban they cannot post which is really good for them to stop doing bad things.

Unbanning: The user gets unbanned, and goes back to whatever he is doing. He can post and do whatever he can do before he got banned.

I.P ban: In some situations, a person can get banned over and over and the person uses alts to avoid banning. That is where I.P ban gets in place, as the person gets banned on every alt they make. This is rare, and not many members get I.P banned.

I.P check: This is when member is banned they check the I.P of that user, and it keeps track of the user that makes the alt. If there was no I.P check, moderators won't know who avoid bans.

Perma ban: This is the prob the most rarest thing that a moderator can do, with this, users can't do anything almost, it is like being locked out of an account. This happens when a user does something extremely bad. Only a few members have been Perma banned.

Deleting graphics: Moderators can delete graphics if the graphics is inapproprite or contains swear words. They can remove the graphics in an instant, and other users won't be able to find it.

Deleting comments: The moderators delete a comment if it is flamming, spamming, cussing or dating. The users won't be able to see the message anymore.

Deleting awards: The moderators delete awards if cussing and spamming is included in the award. The user can't delete the award by itself.

Game Flaggings: Mods cannot delete games, but can flag the games to Geoff, so Geoff can delete the game. Users cannot see the game anymore.

Game Restore: The mods restore games by looking in the game restore page to see what games need to be restored, mods won't restore games if the game includes inappropite gameplay or title.

Reporting reviews: The mods can report reviews to Geoff. Reviews can only be deleted if it includes swear words and spamming or if the owner of the badge reviewed his own games.

The Moderation Panel: This is where mods see which members are banned and decide which members should get unbanned or banned, there is lots of work in The Moderation Panel.

The Ban Appeal: This is where a mod can answer question that a banned member can post, the user might ask why he got banned, or when he will get unbanned. The mods won't reply to messages with inapporopite posts.

Last Notes~

It will be a pleasure to be a mod. I've just explained all the powers of mods. If I get mod, I will help the mods and help the Sploder Community. I am now up for the job of a moderator, if I become one.

What being a MSM means to me.

   
A MSM to me is sploder’s most important and most needed job. Being a moderator is a lot of work; this means a moderator needs a few qualifications to become one. They shall be posted below.

Quite Rarely, AMSM’s job can be pretty tough. Maybe there are lots of reports and things. But as a MSM, you have to be up for it

A MSM should be active. Every day, there are around 100 reports and only about 50 moderators, half are pretty in-active. If every moderator was active, reports would get done very easily.
A MSM should make everyone who’s getting: bullied, bribed or even rarely death threats should tell a moderator straight away.

A MSM should have control over all members who break the rules, not by just simply banning them, but telling them what they have done wrong and take time with them. If you simply just ban them, it could get them agitated.

MSM’s are role models to many members on sploder. When a member needs it, A MSM helped. MSM’s should be mature and respectable as they are looked up to.

MSM’s should be serious in all of their moderator situations. If you are caught messing around and being immature with your powers, your badge and powers shall be taken away very easily.

A MSM should not just want to be a MSM to just show off their badge, but to want to contribute to help sploder.

A MSM must be a little bit experienced to know what being a MSM is like. Not knowing everything, just some things.


What powers a MSM has.

Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can stop a member doing certain things on sploder because they may have broken the rules.

Un-Banning ~ This is the power where a moderator can un-ban a member early if they have a good reason posted in the ban appeal. This is a pretty easy thing to do, just explain to the member that they are un-banned and why (If required).
 
Warning ~ This is the power where a moderator can send a bold message that appears on a certain member’s page under their avatar when they log in. If a member has broken the rules, but not enough to deserve a ban, this will be sent to the member.

Quarantining a member ~ This is the power where a moderator keeps track on what a certain member is doing. This is used when a moderator thinks the member is up to something suspicious.
 
Verbal warning ~ This is the power where a moderator sends a normal message onto a members page if they have done something to annoy the moderator or another member. Everyone can see this kind of warning.

I.P Ban ~ This is the power, in serious cases, where a moderator can ban the members I.P so they cannot log on or make another account with that computer. This is used when a member has tried to make an alt when their main account has been banned.

I.P Check ~ This is the power where a moderator can check to see if a member has an alt. This is used to check if a member, who is possibly banned has made an alternative account to still try and access sploder or break the rules. This is a very useful power. This can sometimes lead to an I.P ban.
 
Deleting Graphics ~ This is the power where moderators can delete graphics that may be breaking the rules of sploder or offending another member on sploder.

Deleting posts ~ This is the power where a moderator can delete a comment that has maybe broken the rules or upset a member. This usually leads to a warning or ban.

Flagging a game ~ This is the power where a moderator can click a button that sends the game to Geoff, he shall then decide if it needs to be deleted. A game is usually flagged when it breaks the rules or upsets another member.

 Restoring games ~ This is the power where a moderator can retrieve a game that maybe a member has accidently deleted or deleted it and then regretted it. You can find that page here:  http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/

Reporting: games/graphics/posts/members/reviews ~ This is a power that anyone can access. This is only really used when a moderator is unsure that it should be deleted or banned. Only Geoff can delete reviews, no moderators can flag it.

Access to 'Ban Appeal' ~ This is the power where a moderator can speak to a member who thinks they should be un-banned if they are banned. A moderator must ask why the member thinks they should be un-banned. After the moderator has got the reasons, they will then decide if the member should be un-banned early or not.

Access to moderator board ~ This is the power where a moderator can find the latest moderator activity. Such as: recently banned members, deleted graphics and posts and more.

Permanent ban ~ This is the power where a MSM can ban a member forever. This means the member cannot do anything on sploder. You can be un-perma banned. This is usually the type of ban after an I.P ban.



Spamming And Flaming.


Spamming – This is where a member posts multiple times on (commonly) a: members/game/review page. Spamming usually advertises, which wastes other members and moderators time. It wastes member’s time because spamming can sometimes bury important messages and makes it harder to find important ones, depending how many spam messages there are. It wastes a moderator’s time because they have to deal with all the spam reports. Spamming usually leads to a warning.

Flaming – This is where 2 or more members argue over a subject. One of the most common flame wars start with religion. Flaming can put a bad reputation on you as you look stupid arguing over something, usually, stupid. Flaming can be pretty annoying. Flaming usually leads to a warning/ban.


Final note.

In conclusion, I think I should become the MSM this week as I qualify all of the qualifications that I named and I never give up. If you found my application, I would be honored if you were to thank it, I promise that I will be become a good MSM if I become one this week.

Thanks for reading my MSM application

Good luck to all the other applicants!

Congratulations to Poke

Oh boy... Competition.

What being a MSM means to me:
It would be great for me. But I will take FULL RESPONSIBILITIES if I was a MSM. It will be tiring, too, but you should be ready for anything. I have seen Cyber-Bullies scattered around Sploder, I have tried to stop them, but it was really hard. The hate messages I see on a random page on Sploder goes like this, "Your games ~SPLODE~s like ~SPLODE~." I hate people that say these kind of hate comments. If I was accepted, I would make them stop by saying "You should not be saying bad stuff, If you think their games are not good you should think about your games if they are not good. If you say more stuff like that you will be warned or worse."

Powers that are exclusively for MSMs :
1.) Game Restoring: It is to restore games that you accidentally deleted. I would use this power when a person says that his/her games was accidentally deleted.
2.) Warning: It is to warn people who have slightly broken the rules. I would use this power if a user has slightly broken the rules.
3.) Banning: It is to ban people on sploder so they can stop doing things that were the reason why he/she was banned. I would use this power if a player has done something wrong or has broken the rules.
4.) Un-Banning: It is to un-ban people who were banned and has given a good reason why they should be un-banned. I would use this power when the person has given me a good reason why he/she should be un-banned.
5.) I.P Banning: Where a person is banned and also their alts or backups cannot be accessed. I would use this power when a player is banned, but can still access their alt so they can do more bad things. So I will I.P ban them so they won't do any bad.
6.) Quarantining: It is to keep on track of what a player is doing. I would use this power if I think a certain player is doing something suspicious.
7.) I.P Check: It is to check an I.P of a person if he has any alts. I would use this power if a bad player has any unknown alts.
8.) Deleting Graphics/Comments: It is to delete a graphic/comment if it was inappropriate. I would use this power if I see  graphic or a comment that is offending/disturbing/inappropriate for many people or a single person.
9.) Flagging: It is a button that is only shown exclusively for MSMs, if you click the button the game is automatically sent to Geoff and he will decide if the game should be deleted or not. I would use this power if I see a game that is inappropriate or something that makes a certain player sad.
10.) Permanent Ban: It is to PERMANENTLY ban a person if he/she has made a lot of violations or broken the rules a lot of times. I would use this power if I certain person has broken the rules a lot of times.

What is Spamming and Flaming:
1.) SPAMMING: It is to post a lot of disturbing/annoying comments. Commonly it includes advertising such as, "Please play my game, it is called ~Game Name~."
2.) Flaming: It is when you hate a person so much or 2. It also when 2 people argue about something then they form groups.

what being a moderator means to me...

well first of all, if i was a moderator, i would always patrol, and look for trouble and bypassing going on, if i see anything bad, i would tell them to stop immediately, if they do not, however then i will give them a warning, i take off the warning, then if they still bypass or continue to behave inappropriately, then i would ban them.

Moderators should also be very reliable, so if anyone needs a favour, they would hands down stop what they were doing and try everything in their favour that they could do. if they can't help, then at least they tried.

Moderators are also very firm, if people spam their inventory, or do anything they aren't fond of, they should tell that person to stop, moderators would also be responsible  by doing the right things and not what i call "do as i say not as i do" as in, you tell a person to do the right thing, yet you do not do the same, you do the opposite.

now, here are a few comments i'd like to make...


Hi, i'm Jasmine, i have wanted to be a moderator and an editor since forever. i hereby promise that i will obey all of the rules and do everything i  my power to help sploder. thank you for reading

Hello, I am Luca1673 and today I will make a application to be a Main Site Moderator.




What being a Moderator means to me

In my opinion, being a moderator is a excellent job, because you can keep the sploder community safe by members who want to keep this community in danger. Moderators need to have good grammar and be nice to the member which he has warned or banned. If your just a normal user you have to respect the moderator of what he asks you to do.




Warning

You get a warning by misbehaving and do things which are not allowed here. If a member misbehaves another member who sees what he is doing will simply report the message that he sent and it will appear on the moderation page so the moderator can warn the user not to do that again. The moderator has to warn the user very nicely.




Ban


If the moderator already warned you and you repeat what you were not meant to do, you get banned for ignoring the moderators warning. You will have to file an appeal and if your appeal is good enough he lets you go. If you are banned you cannot post messages or send awards. If your appeal is not good enough you get banned for a certain amount of time which shall be 2 months, 1 month, 2 weeks or a couple of days.




I.P Block


A I.P block can block your computer I.P from using sploder. If you bypass a warning and a ban you get I.P blocked and I.P blocks are forever.




Spamming


Spamming is when you post several amount of messages that are the same. If you advertise your games you are spamming aswel. Your spam could be swearing or any language that is not nice and you post that message many times.




Flaming

Flaming is a hostile fight that can offend another member and make him feel sad. That means that member is cyber bullying.




That concludes my application and I hope I get thanked.

What being a MSM means to you:

A MSM is a user who practically patrols the Sploder main site. Being a MSM would
mean a lot to me and I would do all that is possible regarding my powers to keep Sploder fun and safe from users who continuously make it hard for others. I know that I have the capability to hold the badge and I know that i have a moderate level of maturity to do so.


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

Banning:
Can ban a user from the main site regarding certain issues.

Ban appeals:
If I am correct, view something certain regarding Sploder ban appeals.

Deleting unnecessary/ rude awards:
To avoid unnecessary comments following awards and arguments.

Deleting or reporting games to Geoff (I think this idea was approved):
This is mainly like flagging a game on trial for deletion.

Deleting unnecessary/ rude graphics:
To keep Sploder users away from harmful images including p***ogrophy and other things that are not age appropriate.

Hack log:
The general idea of viewing who's been hacked and by what ip. MSM's can then trace the ip and deal with it from there.

Ip ban:
Can ban users/ user who share the same ip or use the same computer in the household network. Normally done due to continuos offenses.

Warn:
MSM's can warn a user with a brief comment/ paragraph of what they did wrong. Normally if they are approaching another warning, it will be considered a ban on the user.

Deleting posts:
A big part of Sploder especially the comments that are rude, harmful, arguing, swearing/ cursing, and last but not least, advertising.


Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming is when a user continuously does something whether it's intentional or not. This can range from posting the same post over and over to sending someone many awards that are pointless and unneeded.

Flaming is when users fight on continuos occasions. In other words, an argument that rolls on and on.


Thank you to all those who have read my application. Please understand that I will help Sploder regularly and will not let you down.

What being a moderator means to me:

Being a moderator allows me to help our community, and help Sploder be a safer and more enjoyable environment; Being a moderator also gives me the opportunity to enforce the rules, and deal with those who break them. MSM is a serious job and responsibility, requiring you to deal with various reports; But my dedication to Sploder is strong, and I pledge to work as hard as I can, if I ever become a MSM. I look at people's messages allot, and I see many rule-breaking ones; I want to do something about it, I want to be someone who's a role-model to all members, someone who can make Sploder a better place.

Powers:

MSM's have various powers, such as being able to ban those who break the Terms of service, warn users if they commit a minor offense or if it's their first time breaking a rule, check reported posts to make sure they are ban/warning worthy. Moderators can also check a user's I.P address, (The unique group of numbers that identifies each internet-attached computer) so they can make sure a banned user does not evade a ban with an alternate account. Another unique power a MSM posseses is I.P banning, which prevents accounts of the same I.P address to be created, making sure the worst of banned users do not create alts and cause more trouble. Moderators can also remove/sensor comments from the Main site. They can also flag inappropriate graphics, and restore games, (To help people who deleted them by accident) but they can also delete games. (Ones that break the terms of service, at least)

Final notes:

MSM is a difficult task, that requires patience and emotional strength, I have seen many mature and skilled moderators flamed for banning people who deserved their bans. A moderator also needs to deal with various offenses, such as spam, bypassing, and inappropriate comments, making it a job of many varieties. Some people think MSM is a fancy title that grants you popularity, but that is completely incorrect; MSM is a massive responsibility, and wearing the badge is not only a great honour, but a commitment.


 All my time on Sploder, I have wanted to help out; please, give me a chance to prove my worth, to make Sploder not only more enjoyable, but safer.

Thank you for reading.

Thank You to the Person who took time to read this.
I am aware I may not have had the smoothest time with moderators in the past and would like to have another chance by becoming one and protecting Sploder. I am on frequently and work hard. Now I have discovered the forums I have never looked back. My main reason for becoming a MSM is to protect and help new players as well as older ones. I love Sploder and would do anything to protect it.
A MSM can issue warnings, give bans (restrictions)I.E no posting, no giving awards etc. A mod can use IPs to stop people creating different accounts and with holding permanent  bans by using the IP a unique code for the computer to stop them creating another new account. They can delete messages and unsuitable games as well as flagging graphics. A great thing Moderators can do is restore accidently deleted games.
A permanent ban means they can never go on again.
You can be banned for a few hours, days, weeks for less serious offences but still quite bad.
Spamming is where you go over the top I.E posting millions of those little graphics or posting zillions of comments. Flaming is when you start an argument over something pretty much.
My last thing is I disagree with doing it by thanks as this does not give less popular but highly active members a chance as well as doing it weekly because people who enter later on stand a lower chance.
Yours Sincerely
Duncanb

If I were to be a moderator, I would help to keep sploder safe, and at an appropriate level for the large amounts of children that use this site. I Think I would be a good choice for moderator, because of my large desire to help others. And I hope that I have shown that I am ready for the title of moderator.

 I would do my best to help to help all the members of the mainsite, and use my powers appropriately.

What being a moderator means to me

I wouls love to be chosen for moderator for many reasons. The first being that this was the badge, I had always wanted the most. And I've always had a healthy desire to help others on the main site, as seen through my little group I had on there, to protect sploder haha. I thought it was so big and strong at the time, however, when I had found a bully, I had to wait for a moderator to reply and take action. Which, of course, if I had been moderator myself I could have taken action immediately, and prevented any more harm coming. But I just had to wait for the other mods to see my post, which could have been lost in a sea of other requests.

 So, to help others, and to be a respectable member of the sploder community, as well as to be a role model for the newer members. is what being a main site moderator means to me.

A moderators powers

Warning

If the moderator has found an offending member, he will give him a verbal warning. this will hopefully prevent any other offense from this member.

Banning

If the offending member has ignored previous warnings, and continued to break the rules in whichever way, the moderator must ban him. This means he cannot post any more messages, but can still make games.

IP check

If the moderator suspects a member of being an alt of a previously banned member, to get around the ban, or the member thinks he has been hacked, the moderator can check the IP adress of that member. This will show either if that member is an alt, or whether another member has been hacked, and by who.

IP ban

If the offender has been banned, but made an alt to avoid the ban, and continued to offend, the moderator must IP ban him. This means he cannot post, and he cannot make ANY more accounts.

Flagging games or accounts to geoff

If there is a banned user, or innappropriate game on the main site, he will flag them to geoff for deletion.

Define flaming and spamming

Flaming
Flaming is hostile and insulting interaction between sploder members, often involving the use of profanity.
 
Flaming is frequently the result of the discussion of heated real-world issues such as politics, religion, and philosophy, or of issues that polarise subpopulations, but can also be provoked by seemingly trivial differences.

Spamming

Send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on sploder. For reasons either to advertise, or to annoy.


                                                      Final note

  I truly want to be a moderator, because I think I am ready. I have a healthy desire to help people, and hope that other people see this.

           Thank you very much for reading this, and good luck to the others.

Yeah yeah, let's get this over with.

What being an MSM is to me.

If I were an MSM, not only would I faint of shock, I would do what is right.  If anyone violated the ToS, I would ban them.  Sploder is not for cursing and talking about explicit stuff.  It's a children's website where kids can make games.  If anyone bypasses a bit, they'd get a warn and the comment would be deleted.  If it continues, a ban.  Easy as that.

Powers of an MSM

-Warn: Can warn members who do something minor.
-Ban: An action where the banend member cannot log in for a period of time.
-Perma Ban: A permanent ban.  The banned member cannot log in again.
-IP Ban: Bans every member with the same IP as the banned member.  The IP Banned member cannot make alts.
-Access to the Mod Pannel: MSMs can view a special board where all this happens.
-Quarantining: Puts a member under the watch of MSMs.
-Flagging Games: MSMs can flag games that are inappropriate so Geoff can see them and delete them.
-Delete Posts: MSMs can delete posts that are not appropriate.

Define Spamming and Flaming

Spamming-Saying a useless message over and over again.  Posting many emoticons in one or multiple posts is also spamming.

Flaming-Using swears to insult members, is a type of bullying.

That's it.

What actually happened to this? I'm very curious seen as there did not seem to be an explanation if there even was one :).


(I also really hate to say this, but this recruitment system really seems to be a bit flawed. Surely it is just based on what you know about a moderator, but not how you would actually be a moderator which is surely more relevant. As I am not a Mod, it is not really my place to judge, and it does seem that this recruitment system has worked and has been effective in the past, but still I would just like to voice my opinion this. thanks )

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log: The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

What being a MSM means to you:
A MSM job would be the dream job of my life. I believe that If I were to get it, I know deep down that I would be able to serve sploder.com with all my heart. Also, I believe that people would trust me to serve one of the favourite websites well, and that they trust me to defuse situations that the regular user couldn't.

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

Messages:

A MSM can view all reported messages on a single tab, how many reports it's got, and the date it was posted. That way, they can easily warn a user for an inappropriate comment. Moreover, they have an easy click link, that will take them right to the page the comment is on.

Reported Pages:

Moderators can also view every single reported page from a game to a user's profile. Just like the comments, a moderator can view how many reports it's got, and the date it was posted, along with an easy click link that will lead you straight to the page.

Warned Users:

A Moderator has a tab that shows all the warned users on sploder.com, the peron that was warned, the moderator whom warned them, the context of the warn, and the date the warning was issued. They also have a button to un-warn them for 2 reasons. One being if the warning doesn't seem very reasonable, and the other being that the moderator can remove it when they wish to.

Banned users:

Just like warned users, a moderator can view a log of users that have been banned from sploder.com. Just like warns, they can view the user that was banned, the moderator that banned them, the reason for the banning (usually contains the ban period), and the date the ban was given, and an easy to use unban button.

Blocked IP's:

Blocked IP's are users computers that can't make accounts or login. Like bans and warnings, a moderator can view a log of them. The banned IP, the moderator that banned the IP, the reason(usually ban evasion, also usually a perma ban), the date it was given, and an easy to use unblock ip button.


Reports:

A moderator can view a list of users that report a lot of users/pages/comments. They can view the exact amount and access easy to use warn/ban buttons. They will usually be warned as they are reporting things for no reason.

History:

A moderator can view an overall history of warns/bans/ip bans, and the date they were all given out. They can also view the moderator that gave the punishment out.

Graphics:

A moderator can moderate graphics. They will view ones with reports and examine them. If a graphic is fine and has been reported, the moderator will clean the reports, however if it is a graphic that violates the rules, a moderator will warn/ban a user depending on how bad it is.

Hack log:

A moderator can also view a hack log which consists of a user/ip that has tried to access an account, the amount of attempts they've had, and the date it happened. Then, once they have seen the user, a moderator can easily warn a user about hacking, and in extreme cases, ban the user. They usually leave a comment on the hacked users profile warning them to change there password.

Game restore:

Moderators can also view a game restore, which they can search for lost games, and un-delete them for users.

Ban appeal:

Banned users can make an appeal to moderators (usually an apology) that may earn them an early release.But if they just spam, they will just have the rest of there communications cut to sploder.com



Define spamming and flaming: Spamming is where users will re-post the same comment again and again and again for no good reason. And flaiming is where 2 members will have 2 different opinions on something, and they will start to argue, and start a 'flame war'.

Thanks sploder for taking the time to read this and I hope you see that I will try to improve sploder if I become that role.

What being a MSM means to you:
Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
Define spamming and flaming:

1.Becoming an MSM would make me feel proud to the fact that I know I'm a chosen moderator on such a popular and awesome site, I would take honour on getting my MSM badge and not be snotty about it and show off. I know becoming an MSM isn't for look and respect the true thing is, it's because you want to look after the forum and keep it a nice place to be under all costs. Just what I'm trying to work out is if I got MSM it really would mean the world to me, just truly knowing that I'm in charge of helping others keep the site a place for children and sometimes adults. I know becoming MSM is a gigantic commitment and I wouldn't go crazy with it, becoming MSM has been my dream since 2010 and now I am ready to take the test and become an MSM. I have so much spare time that I think I could use it to help the site become better! :)

2.Post delete: I would delete posts when they are considered insult to another user and is actually making them feel upset or down, I would delete their post and help them feel better. I would also use post delete if someone spams over and over again, so that someone's page isn't all spammed up with smileys or game advertisements, I would just delete all the spam posts.

Warning: I would use the warning to let people know for sure they are on thin ice and what they're doing is bad and really isn't helping them become a respected user. I can use warning to tell them easily that they've misinterpreted on certain posts/games as they are rude or mean

Alt Check: I would use the alt check to make sure someone isn't making alts to spam the forum up and basically destroy it. I want to keep the site safe from spam, I would check for alts and get them all banned.

IP Ban: I would use this if someone has been really bad and broke the rules several times, if someone was alt spamming and they had been warned but they ignored I would warn them just one more time and if he/she carried on I would pull out the ban hammer and IP ban her/him

Spamming: Spam is flooding something with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is game advertisement tbh and often get-views-quick schemes. Spam costs the sender very little to send -- most of the costs are paid for by the recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender.

Flaming: Flaming often leads to the shouting (capitals) of insults between members within a certain thread. There is a bad result, as it often throws the discussion of a mature topic well off track. For example, the topic of a discussion forum may be "Choosing a Mac or a PC." Some Mac user may post a message showing off about the benefits of a Mac, which in turn prompts a response from a PC user explaining why Macs suck so much and why Windows is obviously the better platform. The Mac user may then post a reply saying that Mac users are, in fact, a more intelligent species who are not as naive as PC users. This kindles a more personal attack from the PC user, which incites an all out flame war.

You have to make an application. See page 1 for how.

Also I believe voting has started, so there's no  point making one yet.

Sorry for bad english  :D

1. Being a moderator makes me stop people from breaking the rules,to stop being rude,to stop swearing,cursing,hurt another one's feelings!!

2. Warning:When i see a user spamming,cursing,swearing,major thing i send him a warning message,if he doesn't apply within the warning,he must be banned for at least 1week!!

3. Bans:If i ban a user from sploder,he wouldnt be able to communicate to other users!

4. When i use it?:i ban if he breaks the rules,strong language,etc.

5. IP ban: I think its bad because someone else could have the same IP!

6.When i use it?:When a user escapes the ban to another account!!

7.Permanent Ban:Very very bad,users get banned for life and theres nothing i cant do!

8.Check IP:Moderator will check IP adresses from users that could use someone's else email adress!!

9.When i use it?I use it when a user avoids a ban!

Being an MSM is an important job to make sure that people are following the rules and that people are doing the right thing and not the wrong thing. Being MSM is a serious job! I understand how a MSM works.

Warn: Warn them to not do it again. I would use it when they broke a rules,
but didn't do it a lot just a little bit.

Ban: If they break a lot of rules they get ban and they get blocked on doing certain things for 2 weeks or longer. I would use it when they break too many rules and may deny there warning then keep on doing it.

Permanent Ban: Same thing as banning but they are ban forever. I will use this when the member did a seriously bad thing.

Flaming: Is when someone is cyber bullying, hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users, often involving the use of profanity.

Spamming: Posting too many of the same messages in a row I say about 5 or 6 is spamming. Spamming (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7a/MontySpam.jpg) came from a painting from the 1970s which has 2 people trying to order a breakfast with spam in almost every dish. Spam in electronic discussions is obtained from from this painting.

    I think I'd make quite a good moderator. I've always wanted to be one since I knew what they were. Although I haven't been on the forums as much as others, I comment loads of the mainsite, & I break up loads of arguments, & if there's something going wrong I get a moderator in as quickly as i can. I just wish that I could do it myself.
    Powers a moderator has & how they are used
    Perma ban-ban a user forever for a really bad incident, or too many bans already given, but having no effect on the user's behavior.
    Warning-warns a user for small things such as spamming or a minor problem such as posting a bad word, or bypassing.
    Limited ban-Banned for the time being, like a day, week, month, etc.
    Moderators can also take off perma bans, but only the mod that banned the user can do it.
    Spamming-continuous posting for no point, like hi every 5 mins, or ghgvnuruigrevuicggh loads of times, or too much emoticons in comments.
    Flaming-I don't know, but I'll have a guess. Mean or nasty comments
I hope I have reached your expectations and I become a moderator. I understand if you don't pick me, as there are other potential members around, but I can just hope I get the job :))
1. You got a few parts wrong, like "only the mod who banned can do it."

being a main site moderator means that you can delete comments that are inappropriate and make sure sploder is a safe fun place for everyone
a moderator's power is to delete comments and give people warnings.  I would use moderator powers to make sure that nobody says anything inappropriate or mean.  spamming is when you advertise your game on random pages. flamming is saying something inappropriate.  I really would like to help!!  thank you for your time!

A msm warns people when they do somthing that does minor damage
(For example:a small amount of bullying, spamming, or cursing.)

They will receive reports on games, members, or posts/comments, and deceide if it was
innapropriate (for the young ones on the site.)

They will ban people if they do something major.ban
 examples:
Ban: a regular ban that lasts for a week,month,year etc.
Ip ban:like a ban but the twist is there can't be a account made with the same ip address
Perma ban:an uncommen ban when the person
 does somthing very major like large amounts of
spamming,flaming, or hacking.msms can release
people out of them too.
 Spamming:posting somthing repeatidly for no
apperent reason or advertising your games on
random pages.
Flaming:being hatful,or cursing im a argument.
Extra:being a msm is hard, sometimes very stressful, but it is a good place to be in the ms.
 
I would use my power of being a msm when someone is bullying,cyber bullying,hacking,flaming,or spamming.

Title: Re: The Boondocks: Moderation Movement (MSM Recruitment)
Post by: abe27633 on June 15, 2013, 05:55 am
Well, here is my application then:
When I was new to sploder, and to this day, when I see spams, flames, bullying and other nasty things, I want and wanted to stop it.
I also want to stop cyber bullying on sploder, because cyber bullying has the potential to take a life, and a life is very important.
Another thing I would like to stop is: on my profile and on many other people's profiles, it has become very common of people saying the link of their new game, and saying please play, and I would love to help stop most of this by giving a warning to the advertisers of their games.
When I joined sploder, I wanted to be a moderator, but realised it was too big of a job for me, but now I am ready.
I am happy and prepared to help people in need, and I will also be happy to be very active as a moderator.
Lately I have become a lot more mature then I used to be, and one thing I have learned is to help people, and it will be very easy to help people by being a moderator.
I would be very strict on the moderator rules, even if I would have to IP ban my best friend, as well as executing the job nicely while being fair.
Overall, the main reason I want to be a moderator is to make the sploder a better place, and making people think before they act (for example, just before you click that send button, think about what it could do to a person).

Powers of moderators:

IP Banning:
IP banning would forbid a member to come on this site and make accounts by banning their "Internet Protocol" (which is technically your internet connection's code). You would use it when the problem has gone too far and there is no other solution. For example, you warn someone for making harmful games, but they keep making offensive games afterwards, so you ban them for a few days, but when their ban is over they continue, then you know you don't want this person on sploder, and you IP Ban them forever. I would use this when people have stepped way over the line, and have broken the rules uncountably.

Banning:
A moderator may ban people from going on their account because they have done something against the rules. A moderator can also ban people from certain things like posting comments, because they constantly spam and flame. I would ban people who do something very wrong intently, continues to do something wrong (like make inappropriate games) , or harm someone and also if people continuously spam and flame, after a warning.

Warning:
A moderator may warn people for one time or accidental offences against the rules, just to get the warned person thinking straight again. The moderator can delete your warning when they think it is time. I would use this for people who did something wrong accidentally (without their intent or knowledge) or a one of action.

Verbal Warnings:
A verbal warning is just a message that a moderator may send to a person if they have not really done anything bad, but may have just clipped a warning, so you just tell them not to do that in the future. I would use this to tell people who are new to sploder if they broke a rule, how they broke it, and not to do it in the future. I may also give a verbal warning to people who did something very unintentionally, but may have accidentally broken the rules.

Quarantining a user:
Moderators may quarantine a user. This would make the user be under the watch of all moderators. I would use this if I suspect someone has done something wrong, but I can't prove it, so I watch over them for a little while.

Reports and reported pages (etc):
A moderator can view reported pages, comments, graphics, and messages, and choose an action to deem on the reported piece, or just to do nothing at all, because it's not serious. I would view the reports very often to help members with harmful comments, and I would also use it to put a stop to inappropriate things, and check out the problem with any reported item. I also have the power to report a person, like to tell people that this person is a bot.

Hack Log:
A moderator can view a hack log, which is a list of the hackers IP and name, the amount of attempts to get in the account, and the date it happened. After reviewing the hack logs, a moderator can give out a hack warning, or even a hack ban. Some moderators may post to the person who has been hacked to change their password. I would look at the hack log very commonly to do my best to stop hacking.

Lost Games:
Moderators can view a list of lost games which they can search games on it and restore it for a user. I would use this if a user asks nicely for their game to be restored.

Flagging Games:
Moderators can show a game to Geoff if it has too many views to delete it. Usually flagged games are games which are harmful or inappropriate. I would use this if a game has too many views for me to delete, but may have: inappropriate graphics, harmful to a person, or contains a swearing in the game.

Ban Appeals:
A banned member can write to the moderator that banned or warned them to release them from their status, but if they spam this comment, their communications on sploder will be cut. I would use this if a member gives a genuine apology, and a good reason.

Main Site Moderator Panel:
A moderator can view a log of his or her fellow moderators and what ever moderator actions they have done. I would check the history now and then to learn from the other moderators actions, and I would use it to see if the person I am about to deem banned etc doesn't already have that status on them.

Post Deletes:
A moderator has the right to delete any posts if they believe it is mean or wrong. I would use this to delete harmful comments and spam.

Award Deletes:
A moderator can delete any award they think is against the rules. I would use this if someone rights harmful words into the award.

Define spamming and flaming:
Spamming is when a user posts pointless (usually advertisements) comments over and over with the same context. Flaming is when two users don't agree on a personal opinion (like politics) and start arguing, creating what is known as a flame war.

Final Words:
I know that being a moderator is a big tough and strict job, but if I become a moderator, I promise I would never bend a rule, not even by an inch, and I would stand up to the job and make sploder a better place. I would love a completely safe enviroment on sploder (even though it is very safe now) and be able to help keep it safe for the minors that join sploder too, getting rid of spammers, flamers, and even the occasional bullies.

Thank you for taking the time and reading my moderator application.

I am trying one more time.

What being a Main Site Moderator means to me:

Being a Main Site Moderator means a lot to me, saving Sploder and Community to be a better place. I see many inappropriate games, graphics and comments and none of the other Moderators see them or give them a warning. It is a great job for me and I will try my best to do it. I see every day the latest comments, newest members on the Forums and newest games to check there is no inappropriate things and maybe alt account. I know almost everything about Sploder. I am mature, friendly and also good at using all the programs and Moderator things. The MSM is the best thing to face with them who break the rules and give them reports.


Powers:

MSM job may look like a hard work but it's not for me. Moderators has different powers such as IP check, check reported posts or games, give them a warning if it is the first time they made it. Each of them has a way to use it. Some of them are:

IP Check: This is a great way to find a member who is banned before and now is using an Alternative account also you can check if he/she is hacking.

The Moderation Panel: All the Moderators can see The Moderation Panel. This panel shows all the reported comments, so I can use it to see if they are breaking the rules and after I determine it, I take action.

Warnings: Every one may do something wrong on this site but there are many of them such as spamming comments and emotions, advertising a game or a website. Warning is a great way to warn them to not do that anymore and give them a reason why he/she is warned. This might be a helpful way to learn them how Sploder works.

The Hack Log: The Hack Log is useful to see who is hacking trying to log into somebody's else account. A Moderator should use the hack log when a hacking is taken place. It shows the date and time when they tried to log in.

Perma Ban: You can't do nothing if you are Perma Banned. You can Perma Ban someone if he keep repeating the same mistake.

Disable and Enable comments:
Sometimes you can give him a warning and don't allow him to comments for a short or a long time.

Block Graphics:
There are a lot of users which makes Sex graphics. This Website is full of children so to make sure that no one see this graphics, Moderators can block them. 

Banning: You can ban someone who break the rules listed above. After 2 warnings you have to ban him.

Restoring Games: This (http://www.sploder.com/games/restoregames/) is the right place when somebody who accidentally deleted a game, Moderators can see the comment here, trying to restore them by knowing their name or just seeing deleted games from that user. Sometimes games can't be restored so it is better to tell to them that the game can not get restored.

Spamming & Flaming: When somebody keep posting a lot of smileys or random words/letters this is called Spamming. Flaming is another problem which happens to two or more people with different opinions. As their opinion are different, they start a flame war. By doing this, they can use inappropriate words. This is the right time to remove the comments or give them a warning.


Delete Awards: This is another power that a MSM has. You can delete awards which contains on their description inappropriate words or rule breaking.
 


Note: If you think I am ready for it you can thank this post and feel free to correct some of my words. Just to let you know, I am almost all the day on Sploder so it will not be a big problem for me.

Good luck to the others.

My Application
What Being a Moderator Means to Me?
I have always wanted to be a moderator ever since I joined Sploder. I am an active member who plays a lot of games.  I would like to help protect Sploder so that it can be enjoyed for years to come.
What Powers a Moderator has?
I will do this in order of seriousness.
A moderator can give warnings which will appear on the player’s home page.  (Only viewable to you) These are issued, well as a warning to stop them doing it again.
Small cases such as those below is when it should be issued.*
If they have repeated the offence a ban or restriction can be used. A ban would stop a player being able to login a toll for maybe two or more weeks or a smaller ban for maybe just a few days just as a less serious warning. Users can have their accounts restricted by Moderators, such as not being able to post or give awards. These should usually not be permanent.
*These can be for advertising, spamming, a bit of bad language. Dodgy games/graphics.
Permanent Ban is a serious ban that will stop you logging in forever. Only should be used in serious cases.
This is used when someone has done something really bad, like black mailing etc.
Other Powers
IP powers, a mod can see your IP code (Your computers unique code) and can put a restriction on it to stop you making new accounts. This can be used to track down hackers and to make sure bans are kept.
Mods can delete posts and flag games and graphics. Flagging is when it is not suitable and will go through trial on whether or not it should be deleted.
Moderators have special pages which show all the bans and warnings so that they can keep an eye on warned members.
A mod can return deleted games that have accidently been deleted
Spamming and Flaming
Spamming
Spamming is when people post the same comment repeatedly. It is also when you post too many emotions. Advertising games is also spamming.
Flaming
Flaming is hostile aggressive behaviour against another player.
Final Notes
If I was to become a Moderator I would keep up my duty every day I could. Show no biasedness and most of all support the well behaved and punish the players who break the rules.
Thank You for Reading
Duncanb

Social's 2nd APP Wish me the best of luck! Most importantly everyone else! :D
What being a MSM means to you: A Main Site Moderator means to me is a person with great responsibility and passion. He/she is not only trustworthy, but can admit when that person does wrong. It's not about the power or to control others. But to get someone to the pail of water. Even though they disobey you and cause trouble. It's life you lead,taught,motivated them and move on. All moderators have different background to keep something to stand tall and be clean.

Write a list of what powers a MSM has, what each power does, and in what situations you would use them in:
Define spamming and flaming:
Spamming: Posting meaningless comments, or posting them repeatedly such as: __________;(blank message). Or gibberish comments like: fdhgfjhjsfhjshfjhfsd; ;D :D :( :-\ :'(.Furthermore, posting repeatedly in a row or the same thing: (Same person)
message1:hi
message2: helllo
message3: bye
Flamming: Is a troll and/or user that creates dramatic conflicts with other users and start to argue with them. Even though the victim can look like the egghole, but sadly their being victimized and bullied. You might see this word a lot over the internet: Trollol

Comments/more details:
I am at 65/50 credits so far in my high school academics, I got 175% on my Spanish Speaking final, and can socialize on Spanish websites. Meaning I have help and moderate English and Spanish content. My progress report is outstanding: (http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/4967/lgt59f.png)
I want to wish everyone the best of luck with their applications!
Don't forget to THANK MY APP & OTHERS AS WELL!

Being an MSM is an important job to make
sure that people are following
the rules and that people are doing the
right thing and not the wrong thing.
Being MSM is a serious job!
I understand how a MSM works.

Warn: Warn them to not do it again.
I would use it when they broke rules,
but didn't do it a lot just a little bit.

Ban: If they break a lot of rules
they get ban and they get
blocked on doing certain
things for 2 weeks or longer.
I would use it when they
break too many rules and may
deny there warning
then keep on doing it.

Permanent Ban: Same thing as
banning but they are ban forever.
I will use this when the
member did a seriously bad thing.

Full Ban:  Same as Permanent ban
but you can't go on the site.
I will use this when
the member did a seriously bad thing also.

Flaming: Is when someone is cyber bullying,
hostile and insulting
interaction between Internet users,
often involving the
use of profanity.

Spamming: Posting too many of the
same messages in a row
I say about 5 or 6 is spamming. Spamming (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7a/MontySpam.jpg)
came from a painting from the
1970s which has 2 people trying to order a
breakfast with spam in almost every dish.
Spam in electronic discussions is
obtained from this painting.

What being a moderator means to me:

Intro:To me being a moderator isn't a game, or something to take advantage of. It's for safety and protection. I want to help you guys have fun with out those jerks who butt in and do something against the rules. MSM is a big job, I'm ready to step up and take the responsibility.

What powers does a moderator have?I will not troll with these powers.
A mod can give members that are breaking the rules warnings that will be seen on their homepage by the posts. They will be the only ones able to see it. This is to stop them from doing it again, or as the name states: to Warn them. Only non serious things deserve this, examples:
Spamming(not to seriously), advertising, Bypassing too much, inappropriate games, or graphics!
Perma ban!
This is for serious situations, it will allow you to never ever(ever) log in again.
IP:
Mods have the power to see your IP adress ( uh oh!) And can make it sobyou can not log in or make other accounts. This can be used as an advantage against hackers. A mod can return someones game if they deleted it!
Da spammin and da flammin!
Spamming is when a member posts over and over and over, to annoy, or to most likely get their posts up.
Flamming is when you start showing agresion towards another member. Big no no.

Comments:
I am active and would be honored. Special thanks to:
Omega, Alonesix, and Casper!!!

What does being a moderator mean to me?
Being a moderator would make things so much better for me on sploder. I've been trying to find out how to become one since I found out what they were (and that was about 6 months ago, I only joined sploder 8 months ago).

What powers does a moderator hold?
Permanent ban-Bans a user forever for breaking the rules constantly, or doing something really bad. This ban can only be undone by the moderator who banned the user.
Limited time ban-Pretty much like a permanent ban, except it's for things that aren't as bad & the costs aren't forever, just for like a day, week, month, etc.
IP ban-bans access to sploder on a certain computer-no accounts can log in until the ban is over.
IP check-check all users on one computer to see who has alt accounts.
Warning-can be verbal or seen on the dashboard. Warns a user for a small thing, such as advertising games, or spamming with emotes.
Restoring games-moderators can restore games that other members have accidentally deleted.
Hack log-moderators can find out who's been hacking other users.
Block inappropriate graphics-moderators can hide graphics that have inappropriate things on them
Delete games-Moderators can delete games that contain inappropriate material.
These powers cannot be used on the forums, members must apply to be a forum moderator too, as well as an MSM.
I will never use this powers to troll users, or for fun, only in particular cases when they need to be used.

What is...
Flaming?Flaming is when a user bullies another, which, in this particular case, is called cyber-bullying. It includes insulting, being mean, or doing something nasty constantly.
Spamming?Posing continuous comments that don't need to be sent, such as 'gbbhhvghghut :o 8) 8) 8) >:( ;)', or other random comments, like constant 'hi's on a users page.

Although I haven't been on the forums as long as others, I still believe I can become a moderator.
There are others who have the potential to become a great mod, and I wish them all the luck in the world.
I would just be delighted to become a moderator, so I hope I get picked :))
And to all those others worthy to become a moderator: GOOD LUCK! ;)

What being a MSM means to you:

A MSM is a user who practically patrols the Sploder main site. Being a MSM would
mean a lot to me and I would do all that is possible regarding my powers to keep Sploder fun and safe from users who continuously make it hard for others. I know that I have the capability to hold the badge and I know that i have a moderate level of maturity to do so.


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

Banning:
Can ban a user from the main site regarding certain issues.

Ban appeals:
If I am correct, view something certain regarding Sploder ban appeals.

Deleting unnecessary/ rude awards:
To avoid unnecessary comments following awards and arguments.

Deleting or reporting games to Geoff (I think this idea was approved):
This is mainly like flagging a game on trial for deletion.

Deleting unnecessary/ rude graphics:
To keep Sploder users away from harmful images including p***ogrophy and other things that are not age appropriate.

Hack log:
The general idea of viewing who's been hacked and by what ip. MSM's can then trace the ip and deal with it from there.

Ip ban:
Can ban users/ user who share the same ip or use the same computer in the household network. Normally done due to continuos offenses.

Warn:
MSM's can warn a user with a brief comment/ paragraph of what they did wrong. Normally if they are approaching another warning, it will be considered a ban on the user.

Deleting posts:
A big part of Sploder especially the comments that are rude, harmful, arguing, swearing/ cursing, and last but not least, advertising.


Define spamming and flaming:

Spamming is when a user continuously does something whether it's intentional or not. This can range from posting the same post over and over to sending someone many awards that are pointless and unneeded.

Flaming is when users fight on continuos occasions. In other words, an argument that rolls on and on.


Thank you to all those who have read my application. Please understand that I will help Sploder regularly and will not let you down.
