    HISTORY

    The Resistance was established by current and former members on January 2nd 2015. The 1030th name has a special meaning because it is the day that this website was established (October 30th).


    WHAT IS THE 1030TH RESISTANCE?

    The Resistance is comprised of members who have proven to be outstanding citizens of the Cantina. These members have shown positive attitudes, outstanding social abilities and are active member's on a daily basis. They have been chosen by the Staff to carry the extra responsibility of forum Moderator's.

    WHAT ARE THE BASIC RESPONSIBILITIES OF A 1030TH MEMBER?


    As a member of the 1030th:
    • You must abide by ALL rules and regulations of the Cantina as stated HERE
    • You must be a regular active member here on the Cantina.
    • You must be a good upstanding Cantina member with a positive attitude.
    • If you have any social media accounts (i.e.Twitter, Facebook,Instagram, etc.) you should be willing to promote SWNN.com and The Cantina forum on a regular basis.
    • You must be willing to lookout on the forum for trolls, spammers, frequent negative raters, false leaks, etc.

    WHAT ARE THE BASIC DUTIES OF A MODERATOR?

    As a Moderator your duties will include watching for:
    • Consistent negative ratings on a certain user's posts or all posts in a thread.
    • Users with no previous posts, posting "leaked" or "insider" info.
    • Users who advertise their own blogs.
    • Users who post inappropriate content, be it foul language, pictures or videos with sexually explicit materials, extreme violence, etc.
    • Spam posts/threads, advertising diet pills, hair growth formulas, exercise equipment, etc.
    • Users who are constantly off-topic or with many negative ratings on their posts.
    • Users who start fights or "flame wars" regularly.
    • Racist, sexist commentary or visual imagery.

    MODERATOR CODE OF CONDUCT

    Mods are held to a higher standard than regular members as they are now in a position of power. With that being said, mods should not abuse power, lie, cheat , use powers in ways detrimental to the forum or be unfairly harmful to a member. Breaking these rules while using your power is an abuse of and power and will lead to removal from your moderator status.
    All private message member contact and information is considered CONFIDENTIAL. This mean this communication should not be shared (posted on the main forums) with other members or non-members. If a moderator is found disclosing personal private message contact or information , they will be immediately and permanently be removed from duties as a moderator - no questions asked.

    The Standard is written below:

    Moderators are to be all considered on equal ground, no certain mod is considered above and/or as a “GodMod”. Mods do not officially carry more weight or less weight than each other.

    Failure to follow these the standard member rules and the moderator code of conduct in any way may result in loss of moderator status and powers stripped (and depending on the offense), banishment, loss of credits, public humiliation as a result of loss of moderator status. Minimum of 1 week ban, the rest of the punishment is up for staff debate.

    MODERATOR RANK

    I noticed that there are different ranks for some of the forum moderators. What is that all about?

    - There are four different level's for Moderator's and each of them hold unique duties. If you have shown the abilities to perform your duties above and beyond the call of duty you will be able to move through the rank structure shown below. This all depends on your abilities and being able to handle difficult situations that may arise.

    Moderator Ranks are as follows:

    1030th Lieutenant (Jr Mod)
    [​IMG]
    As a Lieutenant (Entry Level Trail Period) this person has been voted in by Staff and the 1030th and has earned a TRIAL period with the team. This person will have to earn his spot and show the Staff and higher 1030th members that they are in it for the long haul. A Lieutenant will have no mod duties and no colored banner.
    A Lieutenant will have a subtitle below his name saying - "1030th Lieutenant (Jr Mod)"

    *Duties of a Lieutenant will be to learn how to be a MOD, continue spread good will and peace in the Cantina and be included with the teams in the 1030th Resistance Monthly discussions Thread. The Jr Mod will not have any MOD powers as they are in a learning period. However, they can report and discuss with the Staff and other members.

    This period would be ONE month and it is the duty of the member to ask the BOSS and the STAFF if they are ready for the next step and to become a MODERATOR.

    1030th Captain (Mod)
    [​IMG]
    As a Captain this person has taken a step into a larger world. This person has earned limited Mod power's because of continued support. A Captain will now carry the UNIQUE banner.
    At the rank of a Captain, this person has now earned the right to carry a "1030th Captain (Mod)" banner

    *Duties would include same as above and items that are listed as offenses in the 1030th thread. However, the level of what this person can do would be different. This person will have a variety of different duties at this level. Once the person has been selected for this level they will be filled in on their new found powers.

    Promotion period is different with this. The period would be up to the BOSS and the STAFF if they are ready to be voted for the next step.


    1030th Commander (Mod)
    [​IMG]
    As a Commander, this person will have nearly same duties as the original incarnation of the 1030th. This person has earned the teams respect but will have to get approval from a GENERAL before making certain calls. A Commander will NOW carry a "1030th Commander (Mod)" banner.

    *Duties would include all of the duties listed previous. This person will have a variety of different duties a this level. Once the person has been selected for this level they will be filled in on their new found powers.

    Promotion period is different with this. The period would be up to the BOSS and the STAFF if they are ready to be voted for the next step.

    1030th General (Mod)
    [​IMG]
    As a General, the duties will have a little more authoritative powers because this person has shown time and time again that they know situations and how to handle them. This person has earned the staff's respect and can be trusted that they can make the right call WITHOUT help. A General has finally earned the right to carry a "1030th General (Mod)" banner.

    *Duties would include all of the duties listed previous. This person will have a variety of different duties at this level. Once the person has been selected for this level they will be filled in on their new found powers. At this level this person will be able to recommend and discuss actions of discipline with the Staff. This person is at the highest level and must perform like it.

    Promotion period is different with this. The period would be up to the BOSS and the STAFF if they are ready to be voted to the next step.

    1030th Grand Admiral (Mod)
    [​IMG]

    A Grand Admiral is the same level of Staff and is granted Staff permissions. Though access is also granted to Staff chats, this is still a moderator position.
    This rank signifies a level of authority earned not only for dedicated long term service, but also by demonstrating exemplary decision making in a wide variety of situations in day to day moderating without Staff input.





    WHAT IF?

    Q: What happens if I serve honorably but something in life has happened to me and I can't continue my duties as a Moderator?

    A: We understand that sometimes life gets the best of us. If you serve with the 1030th and leave moderator duties honorably, you will be signified with a subtitle below your name as a thanks for your service. "1030th Life Member"



    HOW CAN I BECOME A 1030TH MODERATOR?

    Obviously we all can't be Moderators, but here's how you can help keep the First Order at bay!

    If you see something fishy, or out of the ordinary with a user's post, please bring it to the attention of the Moderator or Staff online at the time, if none are online, click the "REPORT" button on the post and fill out the notes of why the post is being reported.

    Post Reporting System
    In the event that you see a post that you believe breaks one of the rules here RULES & REGULATIONS V1.4 , or could be considered offensive / distasteful, please bring it to a moderator or staff members attention by reporting the post. You can report a post by clicking the gear icon found in the lower-left hand corner of the post, then choose the "Report" option.
    Be sure to include a valid reason for your report, even if you think the reason is blatant.
    The staff will review each report and, if necessary, you will be contacted to discuss the outcome or for additional details.
    Please refrain from using the report feature unless you think it is an actual infraction.
    Repeated reports without proper justification or any abuse of the system may result in a warning or loss of privileges


    As a growing community forum the Staff is always looking for individuals that show positive attitudes and are active members of the Cantina. Right now the Resistance has enough leaders to fight the good fight. However, don't lose confidence or enthusiasm because you never know when that docking bay door will open and it never hurts to ask.

    Do you have what it takes?

    Yeah hopefully one day. I usually try to be diplomatic unless REALLY pushes my buttons. Then again, it's people like Harvey who literally begged for my help in a private message right before he was banned so I was a tad worried .
