In post 0, Inferno390 wrote:OK, so here’s what I’m noticing:
There are not a lot of game mods on he site. Sure we do have a good amount. Just not a lot (if you know what I mean). And some of them specialize to certain queues.
Now, I think that there are plenty of people on the site we find interest in running a mafia game. I know I would. However I think there is a problem with the amount of time required for running a mafia game means either that people are off put by that commitment or they simply don’t have enough time for that much of a commitment.

I think that the solution would be to lessen the burden on newer mods so that they would be more comfortable running games.
But how to do this?
How about this:
Start a forum for game moderators. Sort the interested mods into veteran and newbie, and then pair them off, one newbie to one veteran. That way, newer mods can get their feet wet without taking on the full responsibility of running a game, and they get a taste for what running a game is really like. Call it the Junior Moderator system or something like that.

Then, once we have these people more comfortable with modding and with a better understanding of the commitment, the forum can also be used to find other mods so that they can group up and run games in twos or threes. That way, mods who have time constraints can work together and allow for more games to be run on the site.
Plus, this would make it easier to find co-mods, backup mods, and organize the game modding community a little better.



Okay.
Now that you’ve read the above,
Welcome to the Mafia Moderator Society!
Basically, I’ve started this little thread to bring together the modding community and make the above a reality.
I’ll keep the thread organized and up to date for anyone interested.
If you want to join, simply /in as either a veteran or a newbie. If you’re a veteran, I’m gonna need at least 3 links from modded games. Any games count as long as they are completed.

Then, veterans, just let me know when you have a game getting ready to run and I’ll either pair you off with a newbie or you can choose a newbie from the list!
Once a newbie has 3 or more games as a Junior mod, they can be prompt to veteran IF they can run a single game to completion without a veteran. (Co-modding with another newbie for this game is allowed.)

Also, this thread can be used to talk about being a mod, give tips to the younger mods, and to find co-mods and create groups of moderators for running games.

This sounds promising!

/in as a Veteran

Completed Offsite Games:

Link, link, link, and link!

I have a game currently in sign-ups - Sneks & Noodles Mafia - in the Mini Theme Queue. I do have a backup mod - thanks Ari! - but if a newbie mod is interested in getting their feet wet, I think that something can be worked out!

Oh! Maybe you can be a "shadow mod" - I'd give you access to the Mod PT and Spectator PT, for instance (and probably the set up design's PT if you're interested in that) - and then you'd just "job shadow" Ari and I going through the process of modding the game.

Since it's mod shadowing, you wouldn't have to do anything, you'd just sit back and observe the process and get a feel of it.

Sure thing!

I'll make a mental note of it when the game gets started and send you a PM with access to all those PTs! Or would you like access to the setup design PT right now, since it's the only one up ATM? I can open it again and allow you to comment in that PT if you have any questions about set up design if you'd like!

I'm also okay with allowing more than one shadow mod to observe the whole thing!

So you want to in as a veteran?
If so, three games you’ve modded?

1) All of my info including modded games can be found on the wiki page
2) I don’t exactly want to join—I kinda don’t have the time to run an entire game with a junior moderator. I’m just saying—if you want some advice on how to do stuff, you can pm me and I’ll oblige.

Ok
Well applying to be a veteran mod does not necessarily mean you’ve got to run a bunch of games
It just means that when you do have a game in signups, mention it in this thread if you do want a junior mod, and I’ll find you one.

But yeah that’s cool, I’m always open for stuff like that!

I think the question is more what do you hope to get out of the pairing?
Because if its a teaching thing I'd gladly let a new mod into how I balance/run games and the whole process.

But if the intent is more co-modding then that's a different cake.

Firmly the former.

I’ve been meaning to respond to this, but life.
CanI actually get a look at the setup PT?

Speaking of moderation, why there is no "Only speaking english" in sitewide rules?
Would you?

Firmly the former.

In that case, yeah, it makes sense. I've done similar before IIRC so I think it works.

Newbie mod here

I’ve done lots of modding IRL and in a Facebook group I play with but never done any forum based stuff and modding is one of my favourite parts of the game so I’m looking to get in on the action (hence my username)

Got another game for prospective newbie mods! It's not in sign-ups yet, still waiting in the Micro Queue, but in the meantime, I'll be working on creating on all the behind-the-scenes stuff.

Nightless Vengeful High Noon!

what a mouthful

Here's the link!

Now accepting Shadow Mods! Send a PM if you're interested!

Definitely interested in this as a newbie. Specifically looking for help with balancing setups, figuring out ev, etc.
The Clown is Town. The Clown also uses "they" pronouns. Don't be a dick about it?
I know it's weird given the username, but "horrorperson" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
