New Moderator Search
STATUS: Not ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS
We have always said that we make these games for and WITH you... and that's why so many of our team members began as regular players*! Now we need some of you to join Reens and Stratos' in-game team of volunteer moderators to make AQWorlds a safer, funner** game for everyone!
Reens and Stratos want YOU to join the mod crew!
Reens will begin regular hunts for in-game moderators. In the past, we've always hunted when we needed more, but we realized that we were missing a LOT of potentially good team members. So she will put out a call for new mods every few months.
* Dage, J6, Ghost, Tomix, Solrac, and I (plus many more!) all joined the AE team after playing the games... and you can, too!
** It's totally a word. Honest. It's linguistically correct.
So... What IS a Mod?
All Admins (Devs, Mods and Player Support) have gold names in AQW. We have certain rights, special Admin powers, and a boat-load of responsibilities to deal with on a daily basis to help keep the game going strong.
|Moderators are a team of dedicated volunteers who help players with in-game issues, protect the game from cheaters and people try to make the game less fun for others (or break the Terms of Service agreement). They are the team who review your reports and hand out bans and mutes as necessary.|
|Player Support Team Members are a team of incredible individuals who help players with game-related issues such as retrieving lost or stolen accounts, helping with payment issues or technical problems.|
|Developers are the coders, artist/animators, writers and others who build all of the great AE games. We are the ones who write the adventures, program the game engine, write and peform the music, draw the items and animate the monsters and cutscenes. (Find a list of the AQW Devs here.)|
Interested in Joining the Mod Team?
Then read this letter from Reens, the lead in-game moderator!
Hi guys! Stratos and I are looking for new mods for AQWorlds (and HeroSmash), and now is your chance to apply! One thing I have to stress - you MUST be over 18. If you are under 18, if you don't include your age, or if you start with "I'm not 18 yet, but..." the application will not be considered.
We are most in need of moderators who are bilingual (or more) in English and one of the following languages: Tagalog, Portuguese, Spanish.
We will need the following in an email:
1. Your real name, age, country of residence.
2. AQW Game account name and email
3. Artix Entertainment Master Account name and email (Portal Site)
4. Forum account name and email (not required to have one)
5. Languages you speak
6. A cover letter describing yourself, and what you think being a mod will mean.
Please send your COMPLETE application to [email protected]. If the application is not complete, we won't consider it. And please, one application per person. Stratos and I will read all the applications. If you are chosen to go through a further interview, we will contact you. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to everyone.
* Note: please do not email applications to join Player Support. We are only looking for new in-game moderators, but we love how eager you are to help us and your fellow players!
Coming This Week in AQWorlds!
Journey to Falguard this Friday but be careful - that is DarkBlood territory! The Darkblood are a race of humanoid creatures but make no mistake, they are NOT humane! They identify as Evil but have not yet approached Empress Gravelyn.
In the last few hundred years, the Darkblood have built the city of Falguard in Thunderforge and withdrawn from interacting with all other races in Lore. We do not know what you will find there...
