• Another scrumptious episode of Bulbacast has been uploaded to YouTube. Watch it here. I hope you don't feel desserted after watching this one.
  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

Howdy all, your resident Super Mod Lone_Garurumon, here. As you could probably tell from the title of this thread and/or the announcement banner you clicked to get here, Fun & Games is looking for new moderators. If you ever wanted to help out around the section in a higher capacity, here’s your chance.

The process is simple. To apply, simply fill out the application form located at the end of this post. Then, create a new thread in this section with the title “Fun & Games/The War Room Staff Application [Your Username]”. The staff will then discuss your application in private and make our choices.

A few things to note
  • Fun & Games and The War Room are linked sections. To apply in this drive is to apply for both, and should you be accepted, you will be expected to act in both.
  • Staff, both in Fun & Games and in general, often use Discord to co-ordinate and discuss things. Therefore, having a Discord account is greatly preferred.
Expected duties of a Fun & Games moderator:
  • Keep the peace in the section by enforcing the forum rules and responding to incidents.
  • Act as the Moderator on Duty for Mafia/Non-mafia games in The War Room as necessary.
  • Come up with and plan events for both Fun and Games and The War Room.
The deadline for applications is midnight on the 28th of September IDLW (3 weeks from the date of this post). A countdown to cutoff point can be found here.
