We all know that our process to find the best gamemasters is not perfect. We are no psychologists and we cannot spend days on background checks including server logfiles and all forum posts. We all were in your situation too.
So it will occur, that we miss some people. While writing this, I am 100% sure, that there is a player out there, who would do a far better job on my position and who would also do it, if we simply ask him. So do not take it as an offense, if you were declined by us. Patience can be the key. Or you can be a cool guy, having some edges, which could be slightly to rough to represent the FT staff team. Do not think, we don't still love you when we pass over you. Keep up the good work for our game, help the new players! We all need you out there!
If your application has been removed from this thread, it has or it is being evaluated by the staff team. You will be contacted, if it meets the criteria as mentioned below.
Back to the process in detail... You do not need to reach a particular level, nor you have to spend months on Forgotten Tales or purchase anything before you can become a gamemaster - those factors are not considered here. The application depends on the seats available and the current need for gamemasters. It is possible to have a perfectly eligible person, yet no seats available. If this is the case, he will be next in line.
Please note, that a certain level of speaking english is required to be able to become a gamemaster.
This is to ensure a good communication not just inside the game, but also in the staff group. We have native speakers, who decide, if you fulfil this criterion.
When chosen, an admitted apprentice normally will be added to the FT watchmen group and learn the basic way how the staff team works. After a while (and if he seems to suit the team), one of his characters will gain junior status, so he can use basic gamemaster powers. This does not mean, that he is a gamemaster already. Yet, the apprentice who shows good progress and is deemed ready, will graduate from the program and start his gamemaster career.
Remember: Becoming a gamemaster comes with sacrifices. You will have to follow the staff rules, which you find here. Read them first, before you apply!
Good attitude is a crucial quality sought after in a gamemaster. This is self-explanatory, a gamemaster must above all be polite and patient, as he will need to set the example and be the more mature in any situation.
Giving a helping hand never hurts and usually will make you friends and it will get you noticed by the staff. Usually, if you have time to help other players, this means there is a greater chance that you will have time to Moderate, compared to players who stick more to themselves, which is not necessarily a flaw, yet helpful players are better fitted for Mod work.
Players who notice a glitch, and try to report it, rather than abuse it for personal gain, or other such more selfish things, are players who are more fit to be a gamemaster, as trust is a crucial component in Mod work. Same thing goes for language and PVP abuse. If you are one of those who speak up, we will know you won’t be afraid to take action, should things like these arise under your watch.
Sense of responsibility and Discreetness
With the mod work, there come huge responsibilites along. Within our staff team, we talk open about players, events etc. - there are many confindential informations included like account passwords, manners of individuals and so on. You have to be able to keep these secrets by yourself.
