Hey there everyone, what I’m looking for is the chance to show that I can manage/moderate an online gaming community.
I am looking to spend all my free time learning about whichever community wishes to invite me to fill this role.
As far as my qualifications go, the only experience I have moderating would be on my guild forums underdogs.enjin.com.
It may sound silly, but online gaming community participation is really a big part of my life, and I would like to make it my profession.
The sort of projects I’d like to join in on need to be something that plans on going for at least a solid year, that is how long I would like to offer myself for, but will stick with a successful project as long as I am needed.
This is my first time making a post like this, if you need more information about me please feel free to send me a message or post in this thread.
Edit: For clarification
Ur trying to get Moderator status from Newbie, even if you dont know Eclipse admins in real life or you’r not even friend with em?
You should show yourself, learn vb6, help out community users so admin can see that your doing something for community… But, im not admin, maybe they will accept u xD
I’m not looking to moderate for Eclipse. I’m looking to join a game development team and assist with their project.
But, what would you do in this team? Could you answer on questions how to avoid issues? Do you have any useful PHP knowages to improve community site?
You have to inform about what you can do and show some of your work to get in team, and what do you expect if they will take you in team? They wont pay u.
The idea is to manage their forums, keep the player base happy, police the game to make sure exploits aren’t cropping up. I see a few projects trying to appeal to an english audience and making a few mistakes with how they put things. The community manager role is what I’m talking about, and I always thought online games needed someone to be in that role to excite the players, keep them active, and keep that connection between the player and the development team there.
I’m not looking to help make a game, I’m looking to help maintain an already released/about to release game COMMUNITY. So the players is who I will be giving support to, to help them play the game and promote positive interactions between players.
Here is a link to one of the communities I dabbled in:
I’m known as Osadamask in the Neverwinter community. This post was basically me running around the forums collecting player feedback and putting it all in one place.
Here are some links to a wiki I used to edit:
I’m known as “The Horn” in the Wizardy Online community. My wiki edits were mostly from when the game first released. New content is coming out on the 3rd of next month though
Here is a link to a guide I threw together for a dungeon in a horrible game:
Known as Theoretical in this WarpPortal community.
