Okay so as we have games transferring over to the vanilla forums, we're all kinda lumped in here together lol and since every other game has a thread going so far... lets introduce ourselves while we have this opportunity! :smile:

I'm Paul, aka Askray. I've been an STO moderator since their inception what 3 years ago? Time surely gets lost on me lol. Been moderator and administrator for many forums and BBS' since I was a kid, so it was a great opportunity to come work on a major MMO forum such as STO :smile: Been playing MMO's and MUD's for god knows how long now, first big one I remember besides MUD games was ultima online. Once I played that I fell in love with online gaming moreso than I ever did with MUDS.

I live in california, USA (actually only about 2hours away from PWE's offices!), have a husband (he's actually watching the E3 press videos in our bedroom atm lol), 2 cats and a dog that we just adore! Dunno what else to put lol

So come on Mod's lets not be shy! :smile:

    This thread is biased against non-mods introducing themselves. I call for a strike against the mods. Also compensation for this discrimination that has caused me $1.7 million in psychological damages. tiger-36.gif

    Joking aside, hello there moderators. Luckily you'll be confined to your own sections soon enough. PWI and any older games are full of disgruntled players who wish to have you experience nothing but sadness, despair, and a feeling of anger and shame at yourselves for helping PWE/Arc Games.

    Hi. I'm a question mark that has gained sapience and am currently plotting world domination.

    Those who voluntarily assist me will be given their own territories to rule once the world has been conquered. We'll then expand to doing something about those pesky Martians.

    Hey all, KrittyCat here. I've been around these forums for around 5 years now, first as Moderator on PWI, then moving to RaiderZ, and finally where I am now on Blacklight Retribution.

    I'm about 20 minutes outside the nation's capital, and currently in the process of trying to find a job. ^^;

    Ideally, I'd like to get a job working with communities in the games industry, but as of right now have found no places willing to take a chance on someone that doesn't have a degree, and I currently can't afford to go to school to get the degree a lot of them are looking for... so on I search. =/

    So we have a grand total of three Moderators for all of PWE? No wonder we seldom see any Mods in Romulan Gameplay.

    Is there an application somewhere? Romulan players need more attention.

    Eh? Okay, three or four for all of PWE. How many specifically for STO? Looks like one. So my statement stands: Romulan players need more attention. Where do I apply? I'm not joking.

    Might as well.

    Hi my name is Ambisinisterr and I am a...oh wrong group.
    Joking! In fact I drink nothing but soda, coffee or juice. No milk. No water. Especially no water.

    I am one of the Community Moderators for Neverwinter. I'm in my mid twenties and have been playing video games as long as I can remember. At the age of 11 I was introduced to D&D which started my long time obsession with the D&D franchise and Forgotten Realms setting to be more specific.

    I used to program for NWN Persistent Worlds in my teenage years and since then I have been a part of various MMO communities over the course of the last decade or so. If I am not playing an MMO I likely am playing a story driven single player game. I have absolutely been drooling over the Witcher 3 and I was really sad to only be able to spend an hour yesterday playing Batman Arkham Knight.

    Additionally I am a huge tech nerd particularly when it comes to computers. I am the family computer repair person and have actually built most of the family's computers.

    I suppose that's it. I work over 55 hours a week so my life is not overly interesting. Haha.

    I rather doubt all of the mods have seen or posted in this thread.

    In fact, let me be more precise. I know nowhere near all the mods have posted in this and several of them haven't even seen it. So being serious based on this thread's lack of activity is a poor judgement call.

    There are many more moderators. Some may not even be willing to post.

    In fact until my role was correctly applied I purposely did not post in this thread.

    I'm being serious based on over 2 years of regular activity in the Romulan Gameplay forum and seldom seeing even a trace of a Moderator, unless one of us reported something or went to a Staff member and pointed out how wild and untamed our forum was (it's a little better at the moment, and I hope that isn't just a passing fad; it's been better since before the migration to the new fora). I'm also not inexperienced in the gaming industry, or in moderating.

    Hello all,
    I'm VenusArmani. A notorious cookie thief And I come from Perfect World. I have been moderating PWI for almost 3 years now but have been playing PWI since 2009. I have been playing video games ever since I was a small child, although PWI was the first MMO that I really got into. Prior to that, I was primarily a console gamer. The games I enjoy most are more story oriented, like Dragon Age and The Elder Scroll Series. But I also enjoy MMOs, as you can plainly see by continued presence here. Unlike you guys, I didn't have prior experience moderating any type of forums! So my moderating thing is not as impressive. Perhaps some of us can link up through the PMS and let each other know when we're tossing stuff each others way! I know that the messages here now make it much easier to have multiple participants.

    Please don't group all of the game moderators with your experience, I do know that there are a few more moderators for JD, and FW around, they have not seen this post along with having things to do outside of the forums. If you want to be a moderator for a specific forum I'd try getting in touch with one of the CM/GM of that section and talk to them about being a mod, that's pretty much what I did.

    Well met, everyone! @zebular here from the Neverwinter Community Team! I do tweet from time to time (Earthling_003), but its mostly retweets and occasional greenpeace relays. Been playing STO since it wasn't even out yet, and am a total trekkie geek. I'm also a way-too-imaginative fantasy endulger and long-time DM of the Forgotten Realms (over two decades now).

    Just got a year older yesterday and a new kitten to my family, which shows my other great fictional love interest, as his name is Gandalf the Grey. He even has a kitty ring to rule them all! He gets along great with my 9-year old orange tabby, named Little Ra - a sign of my real life mythology love interest.

    Safe travels! My PM box is always open for any Neverwinter issues, contact me anytime @zebular. :)

    P.S. Sorry for not posting sooner but like others, my permission settings have been messed up for over a week up until a few days ago. For a while I couldn't even log in.

    For the most part, however we are indeed missing some moderator functions still (merging threads and posts for example is missing) and I for one still cannot use BBCode in my signature, it only lets me input some crude CSS and HTML, which not even all of that is accepted. We only have access to a few moderator functions (edit, soft delete, and split), so there's still a whole moderator section of features we cannot access fully.

    I dislike having to have to edit a post to move it when we should just be able to move things around as they should be. Merging is non-existant for us yet we can split posts from a topic but then only by making them into a new topic, unlike before where we could split a thread and move things to another thread.

    So yeah, we're still quite lacking but at least we have the ability to deal with any major issues. I really to like the Vanilla system though, it is an awesome and feature rich forum system with seemingly unlimited potential for growth and adaptation. Alas, what we're able to access is akin to memorizing a 9th level spell but having your concentration broken while casting it.
