    GBAtemp needs you!
    The GBAtemp community has just lost one of its most valuable supervisors Minox who decided to step down after years of incredible service at GBAtemp. His presence and dedication are already heavily missed, if you're reading this Minox - I really mean it and I'm sorry you decided to go.

    It's time to inject some fresh blood into our mod team! If you think you have what it takes, send me a PM. You don't have to post in this thread to apply. For your information, hiring decisions are made by staff consensus, I won't be the one to decide.

    So you must be wondering: why would anyone want to join the mod team on these crazy forums? Well there are quite a few incentives:
    - first you get a shiny badge, and access to our secret staff forums
    - become part of the GBAtemp mod family and join our secret group chat
    - get free games and hardware for review (you're free to choose the games/stuff you want to review)
    - weigh in on important decisions concerning the organization of events and the future of the site
    - early access to new features/skins and beta testing
    - climb up the ladder to become a supervisor with full power over the entire site

    What we're looking for before anything is level-headed persons with good common sense, if you've submitted valid reports before you literally get bonus points. Also, if you're familiar with the 3DS and Switch hacking scene, we're looking for moderators for these areas in particular.

    Interested? Shoot me a private message! Your application will be reposted on our staff forum where the staff will render their verdict. We will inform you when decisions have been made.

    Neat. If I had more time on my hands I'd totally go for an application. But I work too much to be a good moderator.

    Definitely an appealing position I’m sure many others like me would enjoy. However as a developer, I would feel bad releasing anything I develop to the forum due to an inherit bias of being a mod. Best of luck to those who apply though!

    The only time i'm not on here is if i'm beta testing or alpha testing something gaming/streaming, or out with the family. As for working I work from home and odd jobs here and there. Most of my time is me on gbatemp reading post.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    I had to re-read what that statement was (GBAtemp hiring new moderators)--to this I can conclude there's more than one whom you'll be seeking--my question is, will we get a formal "Not interested"?

    Moderators only have power in one subfourm iirc. I assume their recruiting one mod for the 3ds fourm, and one for the switch fourm based off of the post

    Yeah, I'd put that in the category of formal "No".

    I nominate myself for staff. If you vote to elect me, I promise the following:

    I will unban the one true snek lord, Vipera. It was such a shame that a level-headed member like him was so unfairly punished for speaking nothing but the 100% unbiased truth! Sad!

    1 like = 1 prayer to the lord our snek.

    You are correct. I really wish we could still see his blogs, because he made like 5 alts after he got the axe. (Or hammer, in this case).

    I can just imagine Minox logging on today and seeing:
    Report Queue: 789 unprocessed reports
    then saying, "to hell with this".
    *Logs off*
    :lol:

    Gonna miss the guy, he was great.

    In all seriousness though, I kinda regret not being more serious about my postings so far. Being a mod sounds fun, but I don’t think I’m remotely close to being a contributing member at this point. (Probably doesn’t matter anyway, only 17)
