Recently, we've hired several new staff members. However, we're interested in hiring a few more. We're looking for up to 1 Database Assistant and 1 more Forum Assistant.


Forum Assistants are responsible for moderating forums and handling staff correspondence over rule violations and other matters, as well as responding to forum reports. Database Assistants process submissions, moderate review and submission content, and handle database reports. Both are responsible for participating in staff discussions and polls.


If you're interested, you can submit your application as a private message to me, and I'll make sure it gets to the proper place. In the title of your PM, please include your user name and the position you wish to apply for, like so: "Aevin: Database Assistant." In the body of the message, you can make your case however you like. What do you think you could bring to the staff team? What are your strengths? Why do you wish to be part of the staff? You're not at all limited to these questions, but they're a good starting point. Please don't be at all shy when talking about your good points.


Applications will be open until Sunday, June 21st, and we will make our decisions shortly afterwards. Please keep in mind that we may decide not to hire anyone else at this time.


Thank you for your interest, and best of luck to any applicants! :)

I think I might apply for that Forum Assistant position.  I've been slacking off recently, so I should probably be demoted.  Go on, I deserve it.

Who's the guy that does nothing except stop by every now and again to make jokes? I'll do that. ...What, that position has already been filled... by me? Oh well.

I can also speak fluent penguin and give pep talks and teach formation fundamentals so that no one gets eaten by seals.

Is there any kind of special criteria for either of these positions? Do you have to be a certain age or have been around the community for a certain period of time? I'm not sure if I'd want to take either of these positions, but I'm just curious.

There's no special qualifications. I think some of those things will be taken into account, but for anyone who's interested, just go ahead and make a case for yourself.

I'm personally not interested in becoming a moderator or a database assistant and decided against it. I don't think I could handle either of those jobs well enough and I think PureZC deserves a little better. Hopefully by the time a future application or the next one after that pops up, I might be more confident and more fitting for any possible position available. But what I really wanted to say was good luck to those that applied. :D

My take on this: If you end up with no-one better, and remain short-handed I'd do either, as a temporary position. I couldn't manage to do it full-time, and do the other things here, to which I've committed meself.

If you need another Script DB maganger, I could do that without too many worries. I'm not certain what your requirements, and expectations are, for general DB staff.


As to my qualifications, I've run three forum/BBS sites/services, still run (SysOp) two, SysOp and administer seven servers (OSX, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris (as if anyone cares, and other *nix systems), know my way around IIS, and generally know server-related things. That said, again, committing to this f/t would be unfair, to all parties involved, unless the duties are light. I also have no idea how your moderators work together, decide on actions, and so forth.


For BB Software, my main usage is on SFM, and I now detest Dotster and ICANN's new policies, as my job requires me to play their verification dance, every time someone wants to steal a domain name.


It's not something that I feel anyone should consider, without knowing all the demands, rules, and the general method of operation expected for these positions.

I wasn't really considering applying, but I started thinking and I guess I could move up a bit from my Chat Staff position :P I also think it could be pretty fun too, therefore I'm gonna go ahead and apply... that's if I'm allowed to that is. Good luck to everyone else who applied :D
