General Staff Duties
All positions will be granted access to a hidden staff forum, where issues surround the site and its members can be discussed in private. Through this forum, you are responsible for contributing ideas and suggestions for the improvement of our site and community.
All of these positions require a time commitment: if you don't maintain activity you will be moved back to member. The same applies if there is any issue with your job performance, though I don't expect to have many of those issues.
Forum Moderator - Video Game Deals
Forum Moderators are similar to Category Moderators in that they maintain a specific area of the site. However, Forum Mods are tasked with a single forum. Currently, we have an opening for our "Video Game Deals" forum. This job will require special tasks in addition to general moderating. Namely...
[*]Check whether or not the deals are still "live" daily. Expired deals must be marked as such.
[*]Check various sites for deals to add to our own forum (additional instructions supplied in Staff forum).
[*]Check outbound links for quality (e.g. members are not allowed to post personal affiliate links for themselves)
I haven't quite worked everything out with this group, yet. However, I'm planning a large re-write of our Guides/Content page, and it will eventually take the place of the forums as the main page that eldersouls.com points to (the forums will just change to forums.eldersouls.com or eldersouls.com/forums, so don't panic). Anyways, informative, humorous, or interesting high-quality articles are all going to be at a premium. I'm looking for people interested in writing and submitting some. They'll all have to be approved, and a good word count to shoot for is over 1,000 (though this isn't necessary and it will ultimately depend on the subject). It's a cool way to get some exposure by having your work published.
To apply, simply complete the following form and post it below (it will be moved to a hidden forum, so don't be surprised if it disappears).
What position are you applying for?
How old are you?
What are some suggestions that you have for ElderSouls.com (in general and specific to the job you're applying for)?
Do you have any previous experience with a similar job?
Why should we select you over another user?
Category Moderators are charged with maintaining the quality of a certain group of forums. You are tasked with making sure order and civility exists between posting members, as well as making sure all forum and site rules are followed. In addition to these generic Mod tasks, you are essentially a "director" of your section; you should do your best in supporting your mini-community and try to bring in new members. This is going to be a rather large part of your job, as there's currently not much need for more generic post-deleting moderators.
Feel free to respond to this thread if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions.
