    BDRP Staff Applications


    We are currently looking for new Moderators ! Please check the tabbed sections below if you are interested in applying to be a Moderator, they have information on how to apply and more information about our staff philosophies and application process.

    We will close applications for Moderators on Thursday, February 7th. Please see the application tabs in each area for more information on where you should submit your applications. Thanks!


    Open Moderator Positions
    • Q: What is your main staff philosophy?

      A: Many site staffs refer to themselves as a family, but we take a slightly different approach. First and foremost, BDRP staff is a TEAM. On a team, everyone has to communicate and pull their weight for the good of the team. We think of the site as a whole/the community as our “family.” The team has to stay strong and active so they can make sure the family’s “home” is well managed and taken care of.

      Q: Why the team approach?
      This came out of past experiences for a lot of us on previous staffs. Many of us had previous experiences where staff members who weren’t active were kept on because “staff” was a family. We want staff to be a team where players can come and go, based on what is best for them as an individual and the team as a whole. A family is forever, but teams need members who are active, involved and ready to pull their weight.

      Q: What are the expectations for staff?
      A: Staff is expected to be both professional and active on the forum. We have more extensive expectations outlined and they will be given to you if you are offered the staff position, so you can know exactly what we expect before accepting.

      Q: I turned in my application, can I ask how it’s going?
      A: You can, but it is usually just best to wait until staff has come to a decision. Pressuring staff could actually hurt your chances. We will always do our best to give you a timely answer, but it may take a couple weeks to process your application.
    • Moderator - 2 Positions Open
      Please Note: You must be an active member for at least a month before applying for staff positions. We ask this because it helps ensure you will continue to be active on the forum. If you have been on the forum for less than a month, we suggest you perhaps seek out a Community Helpers position first, that way you can show your activity levels and commitment to helping the forum out.

      The people chosen for these positions will work with an admin for a short period of time as they settle into the role and learn more about how our forum moderation settings work. Each person will also be subject to a 1-month probationary period, to ensure they are the right fit for our team.

You do not need to be on the forum or in discord 24/7, but a good level of activity is helpful. Moderators on BDRP are self-directed and self-motivated. We often collaborate as a team, but we also ask that you are able to lead your self and think creatively.

We would also ask that the person who fills this position helps us keep an eye on the "Question and Suggestions" area, so they can help members troubleshoot bugs and other glitches on the forum.
