Farewell to an Old Mod
First up, after several years of devoted service to the community, we've bid farewell to ni_chan87
as a member of the moderation team. We thank her for all her help, and she will be sorely missed!(Still) Looking for new mods!
In light of this, we'd like to add a couple of new moderators to sales and feedback :) Interested in applying? Check out this post
for more details! Please don't be intimidated by the requirements- as long as you're friendly and willing to work hard, we're willing to consider you for a position. If you have any questions or concerns, or fear you don't meet some or all of the requirements, please PM me and we'll discuss it.Return of the FFAaonele
has kindly volunteered to take over the posting of the FFA, since, frankly, none of us mods can ever seem to remember the day and time it's supposed to go up on XD The new FFAs will be going up on Wednesday nights at 8 PM CST
. Not sure what time that is in your city? This
handy tool can help you figure it out!Community Involvement
Next up, the moderation team has been, frankly, too overworked lately to focus on fun things for the community, like the FFA and the Petticoat Press. While we love doing these things for you guys, we just don't have the time these days with our steadily mounting sales and feedback duties!
To that end, we'd like to solicit ideas from the community for activities that community members can organize and participate in for one another. Think of this like the EGL contest- while it's a mod-approved activity that happens on a regular basis, it's not actually run by the moderation team and is operated entirely by a staff of user volunteers. That way, mods will be able to focus more on the boring, administrative crap, but we'll still have regularly scheduled fun activities for everyone!
Have an idea? Then please submit it here using the form below!
Name of idea:
Short description (if it's not obvious from the name):
Frequency/Schedule (e.g. "I'll do this activity once a week on Fridays"):
Resources needed (users, time, money, prizes, whatever):
Would you be willing to run it? (If not, that's okay!):
If so, do you have 1-2 users who can act as backups? (If not, again, that's okay- we'll be happy to act as your backups or help you find someone!):( Collapse )
All we ask is that your ideas be substantially different from current ideas. So a general EGL contest or an FFA that goes up on Fridays wouldn't be okay. But an art contest or a brand-release-related discussion post are fair game :)
If you see an idea that you like or would like to see implemented, please comment below it with a "+1" or a similar comment! If we see a great idea that has a lot of approval but no one to run it, we'll try our best to scare up some people to take charge of it.And that's all for today~ As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of the moderation team!
