The Paxterya staff wants you!

2020-07-27 Author: ExxPlore

About three months ago, TxT and I searched for moderators to better organize the peaceful coexistence on Paxterya. We're very thankful for PrimateAfterMath's, MrSprouse's and swabfu's contributions to this community! With ExxPlore going abroad for a year and TxT wanting to focus more on the development side of Paxterya, we judged it is time for another application round!

What do mods do?

The moderators' responsibility is to keep the vibe on Paxterya peaceful and positive, enforcing the rules by reminding of them and if necessary kicking or banning players.
Moderators also get access to CoreProtect, so they can inspect and undo any griefing or stealing. For such moderation purposes only, they are allowed to teleport or use gamemode.

Who can apply?

We decided to open the applications only for people who have already been on Paxterya since at least June 18th (1 month before Season 4). This way, we know the applicants are likely to stay active members of Paxterya for a reasonable amount of time.

How do I apply?

To apply, just DM your motivation text to either TxT or ExxPlore. The admins and current moderators will decide over the applications together. There are no formalities to be followed, but here's some inspiration on what you can include in your application:

  • What are the characteristics of a good moderator?
  • How would you deal with toxic behavior on Paxterya?
  • What is your motivation to become a moderator?
  • How do you deal with conflicts?
  • How should the atmosphere on Paxterya be?

You can apply until July 31, 23:59 CEST. We'll be happy to hear from you!

What happens with the old moderators?

The old moderators PrimateAfterMath, MrSprouse and swabfu agreed to be promoted to admins. They will be granted more permissions, such as access to the server console, so we as a team can act faster when the server crashes et cetera. The role of TxT and ExxPlore will be renamed from “Admin” to “Owner”.
