Why do we need a moderator?
TibiaQA is meant to be moderated by the community. Users can perform a variety of moderation tasks, once they reach a certain number of reputation points. Since TibiaQA is still relatively new, there aren't many users that have enough reputation points and therefore access to all the moderation tools yet.
Moderators also help resolve edge cases and review actions taken by the community. If a post was accepted/rejected, but it shouldn't be, moderators can revert that action. Finally, moderators can also single handedly act on flagged posts.
What are moderator tasks on TibiaQA?
Most of them are explained above. Key tasks include frequent reviews of a moderation and flagged posts queue, as well as review of moderation decisions taken by the community. Moderators are also expected to ensure the questions and answers are of good quality and edit or retag them as necessary. We also expect them to report any bugs and suggest improvements. Finally, moderators are expected to help promote the site (especially during this early stage).
What are the requirements?
The minimum requirements are:
- Verified Human badge
- Voter badge
- Visitor badge

Those requirements may change at any point. Once you have met the requirements and are willing to join as moderator, leave your application as an answer to this post. Please provide a short introduction of yourself, your Tibia experience and a motivation to join our fansite team. We will contact chosen candidates by e-mail and invite them to the TibiaQA team.
Appointed candidates will also have to review and post the Moderator agreement in their introduction thread on Meta TibiaQA.
