As owner and administrator of our Werewolf hosting bot (FBot), I’d like to announce that we are opening recruitment of moderators for our games. The main reason behind this is our will to make Werewolf Transylvania map more popular and games on our bot more frequent.
EDIT: recruitment is closed by now.
What duties and opportunities do moderators have?
-changing hosting game name while in lobby (/pub command) EDIT: Now this is done automatically, there is no need to use it, but it's still possible
Changing of the game name usually helps with finding more people since it is refreshing game in in the list and it appears at the top (battle.net sees it as a ‘new game’ while usual refresh only sends information about filling).
To change the name use !pub gamename
!pub Werewolf Transylvania!
!pub Werewolf! Join fast!
!pub Werewolf Trans 5/7
Keep in mind that the game name should be informative for others. Don’t use names that may confuse people.
Do it once in 1-2 minutes. You can’t use same name (it appears as a new game in the list, so if it exists already it will give you an error), you can add just one symbol like “!” in the end to make it different if you are lazy of making new name.
Be aware that if you use offensive game name, you will lose your moderator status.
-starting games on their will (!start command)
You can start games without waiting for filling with any number of players. To use it just type !start
Even when you have this opportunity, use it with respect to others. Check if someone is AFK before starting. Maybe some player is waiting for a friend. Its better if you use !votestart command instead.
-aborting countdown (!a or !abort command)
When the bot started countdown you can stop it by typing !a
-using !kick (read below!)
I will be checking every single usage of this command, be very careful. If I decide that it was not fair, you will lose your moderator status or will be banned even. Use it ONLY after !votekick failed for some reason (people are afk or not paying attention).
Since our game is based on suspecting others in being werewolf, TK (team kill) is NOT a reason for a kick even if the one who was killed is you.
Reason for a kick:
player is the werewolf and he is AFK (away from keybord). Make sure that you KNOW it, not just suspect it. If you use !kick and the player wasn’t AFK, you will be punished, while if you use !votekick and it passes even on an active player, I will accept it as a fair voting.
If you see that a person fits under this condition and !votekick failed for some reason, then use command like this:
!kick playername reason
For example, kicking a player with name “Tork654glo” for staying AFK as a wolf will look like this:
!kick tork wolf is afk for 2nd night
Notice that you don’t have to type full name. The reason is critical though, command won’t work unless you include it, meaning:
will not work.
You are a good moderator if you never use this command.
-being polite to others
You have to be polite even when someone is driving you crazy. Keep calm. Don’t spoil our reputation.
If you want to become a moderator, leave a message here or send it to me in private. Don’t forget to mention your game nickname and server on which you are playing.[/spoiler]
Here is a list of our administrators and moderators (will be updated):
