No offence to you or anyone, but since when do mods receive training? For if they did, there wouldn't be so many discrepancies between their verdicts on certain types of contents of reported posts/treads. I often had to direct a moderator to the specific text in the R&G or ToS and even to the PG. So as far as i know there is no training given to moderators whatsoever. I think their qualifications are "show proof of breathing for at least 18 years", "the amount of posts made by them in the forums" and "the amount of reports they made before becoming a moderator". I think that in many cases the greeterfellow from wallmart has better qualifications than some of the moderators on this site.
Since the first Mod on Gaia, but you prefer being a sour pickle about it.
We have divided the areas of the website that require support and member services and named leaders to each of these areas. These leaders will be building a group of responsible moderators under their direction and will ensure their realm of responsibility is covered. Each team will have a specialty that they will concentrate on, which will provide Gaia with total coverage from Minigames to PM’s.
Moderators will have strict quality prerequisites to meet, and will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure maximum education and fairness. Discipline amongst our ranks and adherence to our refined Terms of Service (Still under construction) will maximize our relationships with our members. A new Help Center will one day replace our Rules and Guidelines page to provide even more information.
A complete and built-from-the-ground-up training center and team has been feverishly working on defining in hard terms what it is to be a Gaia moderator, what is expected of you and how to perform in this volunteer role. There will be a laundry list of curriculum and training staff to ensure maximum throughput for our newly announced public moderator induction process.
If you continue to think that Gaia just willy nilly chooses anyone with a pulse, that is a personal problem you, on your own, will have to wrestle with.
The semi-broken url that you direct to leads to a thread dating back in 2007. It's about (give or take a few months) 5.5 years ago since that was put on this site, yet plans like "accepting applications of those under the age of 18" still hasn't been put in effect. So based on your reply I have to say okay.. you proof that the point i made is not valid. The greeterfellow of wallmart is (when i validate your post for its contributing worth) far overqualified to be a mod on this site.
