(tl;dr at the bottom)
As I'm sure many of you have noticed, we've slowed to a halt on accepting new submissions. >: Unfortunately, it seems all of my admins are busy or have stopped doing their jobs and I can't handle all of this on my own. So, I'm looking for new admins! However, I'm going to be very picky about it because I want to keep this group looking nice and running smoothly. So, please read below before you submit an application to become an admin! If you can't read all of this, I can't trust you to be a good admin, unfortunately. It's a bit more complicated than just going through and accepting things.Please apply if
- You have a lot of free time.
I don't men just right now, I mean that you will be able to regularly log on and don't foresee a super busy schedule right now. It's normal for things to slow down during school, I understand, especially around exams... but you I'm looking for people who will not disappear for weeks at a time for these things and just ignore the group.
- You have been on DA for a while
I'd prefer more than a few months. The reasoning for this is, the longer you've been on the site, the more likely you're committed to the site in the long run. I hope that makes sense. Older members are preferable too, but not a requirement.
- You are prepared for a pretty full inbox
We have over 5,000 members and get more every day. It's a bit daunting for some people to see so many submissions in their inbox every time they log on.
- You are prepared to seriously enforce the rules and aren't afraid to ask for help
I don't want to hire people who just want to go through and accept things to clear out the queue. The reason we're behind is because we get so many submissions against the rules and resubmissions by impatient people or even by accident. So, I need people who are actually going to look at the submissions and not just accept things to clear them out. Also, I want someone who isn't afraid to ask if they aren't sure something should be accepted or not. I've had admins who were too scared to ask and I've had to go through and clean out things that were in the wrong place or shouldn't have been accepted in the first place, further delaying the log for other people waiting.
If I haven't scared you off, please send an application in a NOTE to the GROUP, not to me or any of the other admins and not in a comment here or on the group page. Please include some info about your schedule, perhaps why you think you'd make a good admin, and anything else you think I should know about promoting you to admin.
Thank you VERY much in advance to everyone who read this and replies.
For everyone else:TL;DR
We need new admins, please be patient since we're trying to get your stuff accepted and get back on track. If something expires, PLEASE resubmit it. Thank you. D: If it hasn't expired DO NOT RESUBMIT. You're just making the wait longer.
Also, please welcome our first new admin: Nino-Umaka
Still looking for more!
