    Default FAQ: Can I be a moderator?

    Since a lot of players ask about being and becoming a moderator, I’m posting the answers here.

    The first and most important thing to remember is, according to the Tanked rules (accessible in the game by typing /rules), do not ask to become a moderator; wait to be asked. Players that beg to become a moderator are not showing the maturity that we look for when searching for new moderators.

    Secondly, it’s important to keep in mind that there are lots of players that want to be moderator and many that may qualify, but very few are actually needed in the first place. So just because you may qualify doesn’t mean you will be asked. Don’t take it personally.

    Third, there are several things everyone can do that help moderate the game:

    • Reporting players that break the rules (screenshots are especially helpful)
    • Keeping a clean record yourself and helping other players do the same
    • Helping new players and answering questions about Tanked

    Players that do all of the above make some of the best candidates for any future moderator positions.

    Finally, keep in mind being moderator is not a status symbol, it is work. And sometimes it keeps us real busy- at times we get more messages than we can keep up with. You can help lighten the load by following these guidelines (particularly points one, four, and five) that were posted in the Growtopia forums.


    Update: Can I be a mod if I was muted before? Probably not, but I won't say never. Ultimately it is up to the judgment of Seth and the moderators.

    what if you were muted before? Is it still possible to become a mod?

    Yeah I'm wondering about that too. Can't people change into a good person or is it like once a thief, always a thief?

    Think of it like this, if you got banned or muted then that doesn't mean that you can't change, maybe you have learned your lesson. People change over time, some become mature and some still bad. If you don't believe in second chances then there is something wrong with you, if you got banned or muted several times then that's a problem. I am tell from what I think, if you don't agree with me that's okay too. I have changed, I don't swear as much or I don't act like my old self, this change has happened when I stopped playing tanked. I am not tell you guys to stop playing tanked, I am just telling you guys to be social, and nice, and very energetic. Don't do anything bad that will make you banned or muted. It's really had to achieve the moderator position if you get muted or banned. I never wanted to be a mod, because I already knew I was a mod. That is because observing and identifying people that are doing something suspicious, tells you that you also are a mod, by finding out the people doing something illegal, and reporting them appropriately. There is nothing wrong with wishing to become a mod, but don't wish till it becomes annoying. Many people want to become a mod, like junior said, but this issue has gone out of control. You will know when you can become a mod, but of you know that you are a person that can't handle the mod position then stop wishing to become a mod, and try to change your lifestyle. Maybe that way if could help you in life.

    Hmm. We will let them decide whether or not something is wrong with you if you do not accept second chances. That isn't your decision to make, the makers of the game and its appropriate Moderators will decide that for themselves.

    A pretty declarative opinion, but an opinion nonetheless, a players opinion.

    Your opinion is well, but I agree with Aqua. Some people don't change for themselves, but they pretend to change so they can be what they want to be.

    I believe devs do give secound chances, but they don't say it. People would expect to be forgiven after they do a wrong thing and won't learn from it, and that's not right.

    There's a guy who used to be a scammer, and now in Growtopia, he's well respected because he changed and now deals with scammers quite well.


    ps. I'm not a Tanked player, but I'm thinking of joining it perhaps. I just found this thread and thought it was quite interesting. Nice to meet you all
    I know it's not our decision to chose who gets a second choice are not, but I wish there were second chances, Example: Kevinzhu he got banned and he came back, now look he isn't doing anything wrong. He changed, so did I and so did many others. Chosing for a mod is just a matter of opinion, it's not in our hands.


    Wanting to be a mod isn't enough, you have to get the feeling that you are perfect and fit to be a mod. That doesn't mean that you have to ask the mods, obviously Their answer is going to be no, or we will think about it.

    If you have the feeling that your fit to be a mod, then wait for it, if you got banned or muted, they say that you can't be a mod... Everyone knows bad words, but they just don't say it. How about if we changed, and we don't swear or transfer cp, or any of those bad things, can you still be a mod? That is wat I mean about second chances.


    I also don't care about grammar when I am typing in forums.

    A while ago, i forget when, but i asked seth if it was possible to become a mod after being muted...i was muted once a long time ago for accidentally typing a word that had a swearword in it, i never knew why till 'saltwater' started popping up recently. Another time, play muted me on accident i think...no idea, long time ago..and yeh, i asked seth if it was possible, and he said it depends, but it is still possible. Just for all those wondering

    You probably won't be a moderator, but they might be a teeny tiny chance. It just all depends on Seth and Moderators.

    • Helping new players and answering questions about Tanked

    Players that do all of the above make some of the best candidates for any future moderator positions.

    Finally, keep in mind being moderator is not a status symbol, it is work. And sometimes it keeps us real busy- at times we get more messages than we can keep up with. You can help lighten the load by following these guidelines (particularly points one, four, and five) that were posted in the Growtopia forums.

    Like he said follow those guide lines and there's a lot better chance you'll become a mod if you don't want to be a mod,that's fine, but if u get the chance to become one, don't abuse those powers and you'll have a lot more fun being one and always play fair and remember that there are people in the game who might think 'hey that mod is acting very nice to others, so mybie if I play like him I can become a mod' now not everyone will think that, but that's an example but if you abuse your mod powers, then this is what they will think,'hey look how he's acting, everyone is saying be nice and stuff but that's a mod and yes bieng mean' because then that's one more scammer so remember, if you want to become a mod, act like you want to and be a good example and help out.

    one quick question is tanked ever going to get another mod?
    another one.... will it ever be brought back to life?
