    I think that's only part of it.

    Like GASPs, Moderators an important part of the Supercell family, dedicated to helping players of all levels of experience, playing styles and backgrounds. They help individual players and the Community have an enjoyable experience playing SC games and interacting in the forum.


    I think if you


    • Help those in need: troubleshooting, strategy, new players, etc.
    • Maintain a balanced, objective and friendly tone on the forums
    • Maintain a friendly and polite public image
    • Make posts & comments professional and courteous
    • Dedicate a few hours each week to the forum


    Do the above and you'll probably be considered Moderator material.

    It also depends on the need. Moderators / GASPs take time off from the game or the forum, so sometimes they need to recruit...sometimes they are able to manage with the current number on staff.

    Consider yourself lucky.

    You have to sign up and enroll to the forum police.

    From there you go from thread to thread, reminding everyone of their place and quoting rules you have no right quoting. For extra credit it’s usually a good idea to damn every comment made by forum noobs...how very dare they try and contritube opinions in the presence of long established forum veterans.

    I choose to edit this given I’ve just received a negative reputation point from staff. This place can be pretty intimidating if you’re a new guy. You’re unfamiliar with the rules and long established forum customs are not yet known to you. Fair enough, you need to play it cool and settle yourself in but people can be pretty rough on you during these early days. Tolerance for new guys seems a little short from what I’ve seen thus far

    Sometimes, and sometimes we bring it on ourselves by how we say what we say. Usually it is not the mods who are hard on noobs, gasps- common, regular forummers- very common. The only thing to watch for in the rules is for the changes that are made with no notice. Then you get shanked in the back - or one may be oversensitive for some past trauma and then take it out on literally nothing worthwhile. But, truth be told, that seems to be pretty rare and the mods are pretty fair.

    Oh to be clear I was criticising anyone who has an official role here. Mods, gasps etc. do a grand job.

    It’s those underlying wannabe staff that act as the unofficial forum police. They can be harsh and pretty unforving

    I was a mod for a large UK ISP for around 5 years. It was pretty much a thankless task really. True, there were a few benefits but given the amount of ***** (insert your chosen word there) that you have to deal with, the fact that a lot of the time you cannot post what you really think, the amount of editing (other people's posts) and general cleaning up of forums you have to do, the benefits didn't come close to renumerating me for the effort I put in.

    I have half a clue that SC treat their mods somewhat differently and that they do benefit in some ways. That's a guess, but an educated one. Even so, at times it will still be a thankless task but I'm glad they do it all the same.

    Besides, anyone that has Clint Eastwood as his avatar can't be all bad can he?

    That sort of behavior decreases the chance of someone being promoted to moderator.

    Contact SC here. Click here to see how trophies are calculated. Click here for answer on how cc troops deploy (hint, it depends) and more info here. How is war map placement of max halls determined you ask, check out threads like this one. Thank you SC for the new legends! I'd start it at 5500 and let farmers play 5000-5500, but overall it is a great improvement.

    As a huge fan of the game, being a moderator has been an absolute privelege and rewards me in ways that I couldn't buy.

    When I started on the forum, it was already established. There was already a massive community of people talking about the game and dissecting its mechanics, bouncing around terms I'd never heard of and issues I never realized. Slowly, I worked my way in, talked with others, and most of all, listened and learned. I grew to love the forum community and I login daily. I never considered that I'd ever be anything other than just a member and I didn't seek it out either. Being asked to be a GASP came completely out of the blue. Even then, I used to say, "Yeah, but I'll never be a moderator," so that, too, came as a shock.

    As a daily user, one of the big benefits is being able to manage and cleanup the forum where I spend so much time. I hate spam. I used to report them over-and-over and I would roll my eyes when they weren't removed immediately. Now, I zap spam left-and-right. When I see a spammer or a spam report, boom! There goes that one and any other they wrote. It's oddly satisfying.

    I like organization and I like rules. I like a clear boundary that says this is ok, this is not. Being in a position to shape and enforce those boundaries really appeals to my type-A personality. I can be sure there's a place for everything and everything is in its place. I also love banning trolls. As member, I'd get angry with the "new" members who clearly weren't or the occasional lunatic trolls who'd have an expletive-laden meltdown or post the same gibberish under account after account, and I couldn't do anything about it. Now I can.

    But even though I find the work I do on the forum satisfying, the benefits go far beyond that. I'm a huge fan of the game and I dedicate a massive amount of time to it. Getting to talk with all the Youtubers and streamers and learn from their conversations has been great. Having access to developer versions, and getting information about and being able to provide input on future releases is a dream come true. I have hopes that a QOL idea I shared might make it into the game. It may not, but if it did, how cool would that be? But getting to visit Supercell and meet with the community managers and the development team was absolutely surreal. I was treated like a VIP the whole time, feted around on one amazing adventure after another, and had the most incredible time. I know I'll never forget it.

    Being a moderator may not be for you, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
