Staff Members

The vast majority of Admins/Staff in Forbidden Lands are divided into two teams: The Management Team and The Justice Team. The management team are responsible for making decisions about changes to the community. Meanwhile The Justice Team are responsible for the moderation part, they interpret our rules and handle disputes between players in the community.

The Management Team is the "political" part of the organisation, they are responsible for keeping up-to-date information in their assigned areas and making any decision regarding changes in those. Each member of the management is expected to carry out dialogues, announce changes and answer questions about their area or responsibility. The General Manager oversees the management and fulfills any duties of vacant positions in The Management.

The Justice Team is responsible for moderating in-game, on the forums and on any Forbidden Lands VOIP systems, their main task is handling disputes, interpreting and enforcing our rules. The Justice team is divided into an hierarchical structure with increasing responsibility where everyone starts at the bottom and the more experienced, well-drilled members hold the higher ranks and responsibilities. The junior members are expected to carry out most of the daily tasks under the mentorship and assistance of the more experienced members.
