What is the role of a Moderation Staff member?


PRO's Moderation Team is a group of staff who provide support for players and ensure that PRO is kept in order. The Moderation Team make sure that users follow PRO's Rules and support players on the forum and in-game.

 

A Moderator's primary focus is in PvP, and Chat violations. They maintain order in-game and make sure that users are following the rules. Moderators handle Reports, Appeals, and the PvP subforums. A good candidate for Moderator is someone who's an experienced member of PRO and has good knowledge in the PvP and Chat rules. Moderator is the most recruited role in PRO, it's important that Moderators would be able to put aside at least one hour per day for their duties.

Community Coordinator [RECRUITMENT CURRENTLY CLOSED]

CCs make sure that PRO's playerbase is pointed in the right direction both in-game and on the forum. CCs mostly work as a support role however they are also given the responsibility of moderating the forums and in-game chats. A CC would mostly focus on the Resolution Center subforum and the in-game Help Chat. Community Coordinators also help to support our Discord Server. Good candidates for Community Coordinators are player with excellent knowledge of the game and Pokemon.

 

Trade Moderator [RECRUITMENT IS OPEN]

TMods are supposed to do three main activities: dealing with reports in the Report Center, making sure the Trade subforums are all in order and that every topic is following the Trade Rules, and moderating chat channels in-game. TMods are the principal forces responsible for watching over Trade Chat in-game, but they also moderate everywhere there could be an infraction. TMods will step in if a player needs help with a general, non-role-specific issue that any staff member could address effectively.

Application


The application form is below. Please fill it in and submit it as a new topic Here.

 

We are aware that the questions might looks hard or "too serious" for a voluntary/not-paid position, however it's important to know who we have in front of us when we read their applications. This because the quality of staff is reflected on the community and the greater the staff is and the better the results will be.

The previous questions were telling us almost nothing and this would lead to a lot of time potentially wasted from both sides.
