Upcoming Launch of the Japanese subforum and Emissary/Moderator Recruitment

Recommended Posts


Hello, Escapers!

We are proud to announce we will be opening a Japanese language subforum on the official Escape From Tarkov forums, to allow our uses from Japan and those who speak Japanese, to have an area where they may discuss Escape From Tarkov in their native language.

With the start of this initiative, we would also like to open Recruitment for a Japanese Emmissary and Japanese Moderator. Details concerning the position are below. This offer is for Fluent Japanese speakers only, but also please be aware that English is also a requirement to communicate with fellow Forum Administration personnel. 

Let's answer some questions that you may have?

What does a Moderator do?

A Moderator's prime task on the Escape From Tarkov forums is pretty easy. Help keep the forums orderly and easily accessible by removing/locking posts which clutter up the forums or are previously discussed topics. This helps cut down on repeated posts of the same topic and allows for unique discussions and conversations. Forum Moderators also handle punishments for rule violations based upon the forum rules, the violation in questions, and the nature of the violation. Things like this include, profanity, derogatory language or attitude, toxicity towards other forums users and creating a hostile discussion environment. The Escape From Tarkov forums is a place where both new players and older, more experienced players may converse, with players of various difference age groups, so ensuring everyone is able to find the answer to their question without being ridiculed by older, experienced players is a priority.

What does an Emissary do?

An Emissary's job is to connect with our player base and future players. An emissary should have a solid grasp on gameplay mechanics and features, allowing them to answer questions that most players would have about ingame mechanics or features. An Emissary helps guide newer players and potential players towards the game, and finding their way within the game. Like an out-of-game Sherpa. Emissaries are also tasked with translating Project News, Patchnotes and other announcements of important into their individual native languages, so that these announcements can be read by the native speakers of their region.

What do we look for in a Moderator?
