Then I'll throw my hat into the ring!
Forum name: O. Vannen
Experience: . . .
Why would you make a good moderator?: While I have really no experience as a moderator, I have spent my entire life working alone and with people in various environments, ranging from volunteer work, to multiple leadership positions in the BSA, to a number of musical ensembles through high school and college, with the intent to lead one of my own in the future. I take well to new actions and am able to turn around and help someone else for the most part. I'm a thinker before acting; I take in as much information as possible as an unbiased observer before performing an action, unless time dictates I move NOW. I will consult a fellow mod or two or report higher should a situation grow too large or out-of-the-norm. After-action reports will be submitted. I have an incredible amount of patience. So, if a player/forum user turns on me, because [reasons], I won't let them get under my skin. I try not to beat around the bush and should a fellow mod or two agree, then I will ban/kick the player/forum user, but if I don’t have to, I won’t. If I can set them straight and send them on their way, they can still play.
Anything else you would like us to know?: I aim to please, I will follow your rules to the letter (I wouldn't have it any other way) and I intend to enforce said rules with a firm, but gentle (digital) hand. As a possible future moderator, I intend to help make Legends of Equestria a safe environment and help maintain it as a positive face of the MLP fandom. While, yes, I am a Music Education major, I intend to dedicate as much time as is necessary and then some to being a moderator. Possible future fellow mods can still contact me even while I’m offline, should they need another opinion. If I can, I’m quick to offer some help (like guide somepony out of the Evershade) and am happy to do so. In all honesty, I really look forward to the eventual release of this project and even if I can’t help make it into a reality, I would like to make it a place where friends can come hang out and play the game undeterred. I’d love the experience as a moderator as I believe it may benefit me outside of the game itself. While I may be a bit (or really) quirky at times, I tend to stay focused on the task at hand, but in the end I’m all for making sure there’s fun to be had.
Plus, I get a lantern. *squee*
