    Post Mods?

    I see a lot of mods that are 16 or 15 and I'm really curious... is there a certain age you could be a mod? What if you're younger..?

    They've taken an 11 year old I believe. There is no age restriction.

    As far as I am aware, there is no age requirement that takes place when selecting moderators. Seth and Hamumu look at more personality traits and how responsible a person is. For example, they aren't going to choose someone who is immature and will abuse their mod abilities. Instead, they look for people who are helpful and give good knowledgeable advice to those in need. There are also plenty of mods I can think of who are older or younger than 15-16.

    I love to help out and I am here to give you advice and lend the occasional helping hand. If you need help with anything in particular message me. I am commonly busy farming, but you can definitely contact me if your needs are urgent. Thanks.

    Zerkon was the youngest mod I believe, I think 11 or 12, yet one of our most mature moderators.

    I don't think age matters. I think maturity matters to them, but that doesn't mean a 6 year old should come onto the forums and become one. Because the 6 year old also should have wisdom, and I wouldn't expect any to come out of such a young person.

    Zerkon is a young person, and he is on the moderator team. He has the maturity of years long before his time, and there is much potential in other people. The reason the team is abundant in 15-16 year olds is because they have developed maturity at the reasonable age (AKA normal time when people are more mature).

    I joined the forums when I was 10 or 11? and people were a bit surprised at my true age. It just goes to show you that old souls do live among us, and that maturity comes at any or all ages, and it isn't just that single thing that brings them onto it. The moderator team has to acquire special qualities, like being mature (calm, understanding, listening, etc.) and having the knowledge and kindness to perform well in the duration of their job.

    To lean back on an old quote to leave you confident, "Don't judge a book by its cover." i.e., don't judge a person by their age. Age is just a number in my opinion, but it is impressive if someone extremely young does things.

    The people we choose to invite to the intern program have had their game logs, forum posts, and email history thoroughly investigated multiple times. Despite what other players may say about them, they have passed a series of rigorous tests and searches. This doesn't mean these people are perfect - nobody is - but it does mean that they have convinced us through their behavior that we should trust them with something that is very, very important to us. That should tell you everything you need to know.

    Theres no way a Immature Player (maybe someone like boonearth )

    Age can be varied. I believe Aimster (or Jenuine, I can't remember) have children, while (like I said) Zerkon is barely going to become a teenager

    You are misguided. In playerde's case, it was unjustifiable.
    It is fair to find that the community is comprised of children — just the combative ones.

    Moderators are not chosen by age, but by maturity, as many before have already stated. They also do in fact consider the ages as well though.
    I still have those quotes but moved them because my signature got to big lmao

    Oh sure banning someone and calling them an idiot as a reason for a ban is not an abuse of power.

    Age doesn't matter, if you're just mature and nice you can be chosen, but it's rare they choose people under high school since they have more experience than the 12 year olds.
