Sounds fun! Can't wait to see who is selected so TibiaQA can get some much needed love in the best answer section!

I'm clearly late for the discussion, but I'm worried about this role on TibiaQA. I think that by having users with this kind of power/role will drive away others when they feel they haven't been treated fairly. It is one thing to be told by a "community" that you're wrong or that your content isn't very good, but one specific person doing that feels more offensive and irritating. These users will have the power to enforce their views and they will also make mistakes. But TibiaQA is actually very personal because your name is always attached to an answer and there's no culture of improving each other's answer if not for typos and formats, but rather giving your own new "better" answer. It's too late now but this does not look good to me.

I don't think it will work like that, here community have the power to choose if an answer is clearly okay or not, and you shouldn't have the power to for example edit an answer to fit into your personal point of view, rather the best you could do is deselect it and select something that you like most.

While in these case is also community who choose if your selection is right or not, and that's why downvoting exists. Beside other sites where someone with power can say whatever they want and there's Barely anything that people could do to correct them (say forum), here a bad answer is notoriously punished, even if comes from an "expert", the only difference will be that they would be able to deselect those answers that are simply misleading, outdated or plain wrong, and select something different, because at the moment there are tons of answers that simply don't fit the reality of tibia and their users either aren't willing to update them or simply don't login anymore which let to a bad environment, that's what i think this position looks for, not someone with the power to transform everything to fit into their point of  view nor anything close to it. .

"here a bad answer is notoriously punished" that's how it should work, but that's not now it really works. Only non-sense answers are treated like that. But there are many, many incorrect answers which are upvoted and/or marked as correct. Users don't upvote answers because they know it's right, they do if the subject looks interesting to them and if the answer is well written. But we'll have to wait and see.

We need remember few things, MOST of question on the site have only one right answer (It can have small vary, but the core is gonna be the same). A lot of times you gonna see the same answer from differents users, is just the format, add links, source, images the small details who give the best answer and you can easy see that with a fast look.

When a moderator downvoted something their job is explain what are the problems with the answer/question, and is the job from user take this in count or not to imrpove their question/answer.

Also remember something, this is a fansite and you gonna need some kind of help, I have something close like 20 years of experience working with diffeents fansite and that can burn a lot of your time. This role is just that, new memberfs for the staff of TibiaQA like any other fansite.

This is a role for a new member staff not for a regular user. And even if the new guy do a bad things, they just gonna be kick out, because at the end, Ellotris gonna keep and eye on every member of the staff.

also important to notice this, moderator and expert aren't the same thing, and now that we bring this up i would like to clarify that i wish no moderator has the chance to become an expert at all, all this aiming to avoid interest conflict.

A moderator MUST supervise the job done by an expert, aswell other experts but moderator are those who must say "hey, this behavior is incorrect and misleading" while experts should only take care of the quality of the information provided, right now most moderator simply improve/edit answers to make them more understandable because that's and has to be their only job, the job of improving the quality of the answer should be done by someone totally different with more expertise in the area.

"serving the community as Tutor". - this rule I think you will have to remove :/ There is no longer a Tutor position in the game.
