We receive quite a few questions about how our community Moderators are chosen, and how the system works! As a result, we’ve created the following FAQ to address many of the questions we receive about moderation.
How many Gods Unchained Moderators are there?
At the moment, we have 8 Moderators in our official Discord server. We are always on the lookout for moderators, including for our official subreddit - there will be details on how to apply below!
How often do you recruit Moderators?
We are constantly on the lookout for friendly, helpful and engaged members of our community to join the Moderator team!
What are the benefits of becoming a Moderator for Gods Unchained?
Our Moderators work closely with the Gods Unchained team through an exclusive Discord channel that only they have access to. Moderators may receive flair or badges on our community channels distinguishing them as mods, access to early information, direct access to our team, and occasional rewards in the future.
Please note that Gods Unchained Moderators are community volunteers.
Can I be a Moderator on both Discord and Reddit, or can I only choose one?
Moderators are welcome to volunteer their time across multiple social platforms if they would like, but when identifying mods we typically look to see who meets the criteria on the channel in question.
How can I become a Moderator?
You don’t need to be a top-tier player in order to be selected as a Moderator for Gods Unchained.
Ordinarily, our Moderators are chosen via observation. We look for community members who are friendly, offer assistance to others, and engage positively and actively on our social platforms!
Once they have been identified, a member of the Gods Unchained team would reach out to them directly to gauge their interest in the role.
However, we would like to open up applications for new moderators in our official subreddit!
We are looking for users who:
- Are friendly, approachable and mature in their communication.
- Have a previous history of helping others, whether on our subreddit or in our Discord server.
- Have a passion and knowledge for all things Gods Unchained!
- Are willing to assist the Gods Unchained team, and notify them of any significant issues that arise.
- Adhere to the formal rules of our official channels.
Under what circumstances can someone be removed as a Moderator?
Moderator status may be revoked if:
- They are inactive across our social channels for extended periods of time.
- They purposefully abuse the powers awarded to them as a Moderator or act in an un-modly manner.
- They refuse to follow the server rules whilst acting as an officially endorsed Moderator.
For minor breaches, the Moderator will be contacted directly by a member of the Gods Unchained team and receive up to three warnings.
For serious offences, or once the third warning has been surpassed, their Moderator status will be immediately revoked.
Thanks for reading!
We’re still refining ways to support and reward our Moderator team, so this page will be updated as any relevant changes are made. If you have any further questions about volunteering your time with Gods Unchained, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our team members!
