  1. Becoming a Moderator on RuneHQ

    New members are discouraged from applying for staff positions; particularly for the Moderator position. Without posts we have nothing to go on to evaluate your character and/or grammar. It is suggested that you make enough good quality posts to become an Established Member(EM) before you apply for staff positions. Posting 1 word posts or smiley faces just to get EM will not be acceptable! How do I become a Moderator on RuneHQ? First, NEVER EVER ask another Moderator or another member of RuneHQ Staff to become a Moderator. We are looking for people who SHOW us they can do the job, not people who are asking for it. Second, if you apply to become a Moderator, please don't think that you will be a Moderator the day after. Many people have been wonderful members for YEARS and are still not Mods. You will only be chosen if you are a good member and follow the Forum Rules. To become a Moderator, wait until you see an announcement along the lines of...."We Are Looking For Forum Moderators!" That will be the time to fill out an application. Be sure to read every single little thing about being a Moderator; down to the requirements, what we look for in staff, plus the list of jobs and activities you would be held accountable for. When you send your application, don't just write "I WANT TO B3 M0d PLZ CH00SE ME!" You have to write a detailed description answering all the questions on the application form. Remember, spelling and proper grammar count! For example: Why do you want to be a Moderator? Why should YOU become a Moderator - what separates you from everyone else? Why are you applying to the Forum Moderators instead of any of our other positions? How many hours a week (on average) do you spend on RuneHQ and when will you be available to moderate? After you have done this, you will get a PM (usually within 1-3 weeks from the time the application was posted to when it was closed), either saying your application has been accepted or your application has been rejected. If you have been rejected, it is not the end of the world and don't think you can never apply again. You must wait 60 days before you can re-apply, but it doesn't count against you. Keep trying! Remember, don't give us 1-2 word answers for each question. Give as much detail as is appropriate for your answer. If the person choosing the Moderators wants you to become Moderator, you will have to provide some sort of identification [for the sake of security] giving us proof of who you are. For members who are older than 18, you will need a valid government ID card (driver's license, ID card) Once you've submitted your form of ID you will be given a link to all the information your job will require of you. Its pretty long and it is in your best interest to read everything. Absorb it, reread it multiple times before trying the big test for your new job. There's no rush once you are notified, you can take up to a week to learn the information. The more you know in the beginning and off the top of your head, the easier your training will be. If you pass...congratulations and welcome! However, if nerves catch up to you and you fail, you will be given a second chance and one week to retake the test. If a certain part gave you trouble, go back and read up on that section and/or ask another Mod. They may have the information you need. What can Moderators do? Moderators can do many things, some which include: Locking threads Moving threads Enforcing the RuneHQ rules This is only a fraction of what Moderators can do. They are busy most of the time; never a dull moment. Moderators are trusted to do these tasks because the higher authorities trust that member, believe they are up to the challenge and are hard workers. Don't think it'll be a walk in the park. It never is. Some days the work is easier and some days problems multiply, but working together with your fellow Moderators and your Manager [your boss] lessens the stress; together we're united. Why are Moderators chosen? Moderators are chosen for the fact that they have been loyal to the site, have helped out, in some way, shape, or form, and have been nice to everyone. They are trusted by Site Admins and Forum Managers to help out and greet new members. Moderators are chosen not because they are someone who has a lot of posts. It's because they have posted good things, have shown the ability to be polite and helpful, and also have the ability to write in a way that can be understood by the majority of forum.
  2. How to Apply for Staff

    New members are allowed to apply for staff positions, however, you are more likely to succeed in your application if you are a well Established Member of our community. Without posts we have nothing to go on to evaluate your character and/or grammar. So having good quality posts to become an Established Member(EM) before you apply for staff position really has the potential to work in your favor. Note that posting 1 word posts or smiley faces just to get EM will not! To become RuneHQ Staff, you must send in an application. IMPORTANT: Before you apply, be sure to read the Staff Application Flow and Staff Responsibilities FAQs first. To Apply On the far right side of the navigation bar, at the top of the forums screen, is a tab that says "Open Applications". When you open this tab, you will find the applications for teams that currently in need of new members. Proceed by clicking the red "Apply" button to the right of the application description; be sure to click the correct Apply button for the team you are wanting to join. You will then be redirected to the application page. Note that you can only apply once at this time, so be sure that you are fully filling out the questions asked of you. If you have any issues or questions not answered below, feel free to contact the appropriate manager. Current managers are: Bazzy - Chat Mods ChathMurrpau - Forum Moderators Cowlover - Events Team KhloeLynn / Scott - Content Editors Owain - Community Crew Sumurai8 - Developers The questions we put in the applications are to show us who you really are and if you are the right person for the job. For more help or ideas, please read the What do we look for in staff applications FAQ. Frequently Asked Questions: My application has been declined. How long do I have to wait until I can send another application? If your application is declined, you must wait 30 days before you reapply. What is the age limit? Staff groups require you to be mature, If you are under the age of 18, you must have your parent sign a permission form. If you are 18 or older, you must have proof of your age. How will I know if I am not accepted? You will receive a PM from our staff member. Don't be upset, you can apply again in 30 days! We wish you best of luck!

  8. A Guide for Writing Guides

    Welcome RuneHQers! Over the past few weeks I have been reading over the many different guides that users are posting, I am glad to say people are doing well, they make interesting reads and thank you for posting them for other Rune HQ Users to use. Hopefully this topic will provide some useful tips on how to layout your guides to make them the most useful for other members. If you feel I have missed anything please feel free to reply with them and I will update it as new tips come in. General Tips Text Styles and Sizes Try to make sure that you use the default or easy to read texts, try to avoid overly small or overly big font sizes. Paragraphs Try not to have your guide as all one block of text, it makes it less attractive to read and less helpful. Try to split it into smaller paragraphs, grouping together all relevant parts. Spelling This is important; you need to be careful about spelling in guides. If English isn't your first language or if you find it difficult then feel free to PM a member of staff for spell checks, or other members are normally happy to help. It is not overly important to distinguish between English or American spelling, Rune HQ uses American spelling but either is okay. If you are critiquing a guide, please don't be overly harsh on spelling, while it's highly recommended that people use proper spelling that shouldn't be the main focus of a scathing attack on the guide. Formatting This is not overly important but it can make your guide look nicer and more appealing, there is a section written below about possible formats. Images If you wish to include images in your guides, which can be helpful, please make sure that your keep inside of our rules (So no more than 500kb in size) and make sure they are of reasonable size to be seen, not to small or to big. First Person / Third Person It is not vital but sometimes it can help to avoid using first person phrases in your guides, address things as Third Person phrases instead. Proof Read This is vital, you need to proof read your guides. Check that it makes sense, or it might help to get another person to read your guide, just to make sure it make sense to other people. Formatting Options When you are writing your guide, or posting it on Rune HQ, there are many different types of effects you can put on your text to make them stand out, these include different colours, sizes, emphasises, and different font styles. The main focuses you can put on text are bold, italic and underlined. These can be often used to highlight headings, sub-headings and other important bits of information that you want to draw people's attention to. It is better to use something like bold than to type all in capitals. Other than using the above styles, you can change the colours of text, this can either be done by selecting a colour from the provided ones by Rune HQ, or you can use any form of Hex Code to add a very specific colour. Short sentences are the best for getting a point across, it is vital to separate larger paragraphs into smaller more manageable amounts. It is possible to align the text, either to the left, the right or the middle of the post. This is especially useful for when you are adding in major titles, it lets people scan your guide and pick out the bits they want to read or re-read. Definitely avoid over using things like the "!" and "?", or posting in block capitals, it is not needed and you can use other forms of formatting to make thing stand out. Using "!" will just end up messing up a good guide, and normally frustrating those trying to read it. For other information about formatting feel free to look over our FAQ on Posting Help Questions, What is BB code, how do I use it, and are there more than those listed? Images Images can be useful when you are trying to highlight special points or to explain something to other users, they say an image is worth a thousand words, but when you are including images in your guides it is important to remember a few minor points. You need to keep the size of the images reasonable; there is no need to overstretch the image because this will stretch the cage. As well as keeping the size and shape of the images you need to make sure that the file size is under the maximum we allow per topic, the most we allow is 500kb. If you do not make your own images you must accredit the original artist, whether it be by adding a "Contributor" section to the bottom of your post, or by writing under each image who provided it. This is the same with content, if there is content that was not written by you please make sure you give credit to those who gave it to you. Closing Hopefully this guide has been helpful for you to create/edit guides. If you have anything you feel should be added to this guide then feel free to post it in a reply, and it will be updated as soon as possible. Keep the good user guides coming, and thanks for reading.

  10. You are not Invincible

    This is a security post for everyone. I was prompted to make this after having a nice conversation about Jagex's Authenticator. The Authenticator itself is a lovely protection system for your account, and you'd be a fool not to have activated it (unless there's some legitimate reason as to why you can't, but laziness isn't acceptable.) Even with the Authenticator enabled, you can STILL get hijacked. When it comes to passwords... Authenticator is NOT prompted when a user wishes to change an account password. Your registered e-mail is sent a confirmation link to confirm a password change. A hijacker can still change your password without needing to know your Authenticator information. When it comes to the main site... the Authenticatpr is NOT prompted upon logging into the main site. A hijacker can still use your account to create havoc on the forums A hijacker can steal / change your display name A hijacker can CHANGE your registered e-mail When it comes to in-game You still need a bank pin, the Authenticator can still get compromised if you enter your details onto an infected machine. the Authenticator DOES protect 2007 scape accounts! the Authenticator does NOT protect classic accounts! Has anyone noticed a strange connection between some of this things that I've pointed out above? That's right, it's your registered e-mail. If a hijacker can control your registered e-mail then your account is as good as gone (or at least for a while.) Did you also notice that the Authenticator doesn't stop a hijacker from changing that registered e-mail? Your Runescape account security relies heavily on your registered e-mail, even the Authenticator relies on it. Here's where we shamelessly tell EVERYONE to change to Google Mail, and use the 2-step verification system. Why? It's as good as a USB authenticator (but for your e-mail) so that if the hijacker does get your e-mail information then they still can't access it without your mobile device. High level players, and famous players (who I can't name) have been hacked recently, and some of the core issues is that they used hotmail as their registered e-mail address. Please, please, please DO NOT EVER use hotmail as your registered e-mail address because if someone tries hard enough, they can and will recover it. ... and here's a clear reminder of security tips; NEVER use your Runescape or e-mail password on fansites NEVER use your registered e-mail with fansites. It is very important to use different emails, for different websites. If someone, for whatever reason has a grudge against you, is jealous etc, and they have access to your private information, they can use it against you. Even the people you suppose to trust and be good honest people, can and possibly will do, if the opportunity arrives, put your email/accounts at risk. Please be aware about the sites you go into. Please be aware about the information you're leaving on any website. It's not just outsiders that will compromise your email/accounts. People you know are as dangerous! Lots of people, using the appropriate software (keylogger, trojan, etc.), can have access to your private information, such as emails in every website you enter. Because the harsh truth is that fansite hijackings are getting more common now, and the last thing we want is to have our community members being hijacked in the unlikely event that our databases are compromised. If I've just highlighted how vulnerable you are, then you're welcome! Post Written by former Admin: James.
