Looking for Admins!

Sat Jan 4, 2014, 11:43 PM by SimplySilent:iconsimplysilent:


Hey there, everyone! :happybounce: We at Rising-Artists are always looking for more admins who are willing to volunteer their time to help out the group. :love: If you are interested in becoming an admin here, please read over the following info.

Admins


We have two main categories of admins, whose descriptions and responsibilities are explained below.

Moderators


Moderators are the "part-time" admins who help out with some of the more simple tasks in the group, which mostly involve participating in the admin forums.

All admins are responsible for:

  • Contest Voting: Admins are expected to help judge our prompt challenges/contests by voting for contest entries.
  • General Maintenance: Other responsibilities include moving submissions from the "Wrong Folder" gallery into the correct location and answering any questions, comments, or notes to the group.


Co-Founders


Co-Founders are the "full-time" admins who help out with the group's most important duties, which include planning and posting journals for the various activities/events we host here.

In addition to the general admin requirements above, Co-Founders can participate in the following:

  • Group Activities/Features: Co-Founders organize and post the journals for group activities and features, which include the Feature O' Friends, Thursday Feedback Corners, Tuesday Tips, and Random Member Features. Each month, Co-Founders are able to sign up to lead any activity they would like.
  • Contests/Prompt Challenges: Co-Founders can also volunteer to help lead the bi-weekly prompt challenges or monthly contests. This involves choosing a theme for the prompt challenge/contest, posting the announcement and reminder journals on time, and collecting votes from the admins.
  • Submission Tickets: Co-Founders help monitor and vote on submissions to the Contest folders and the Critique Me folder.


Interested?


If admining as either a Moderator or Co-Founder sounds like something you'd like to do, please comment or send us a note with the answers to the following questions:

  • What admin position would you like? (Moderator/Co-Founder)
  • Which group activities/responsibilities would you most like to help with?
  • What's one thing you'd like the group to focus on in the coming year? (Could be as simple as continuing a certain activity, or it could be a completely new idea, if you have one :la:)


Feel free to make the answers brief (1-2 sentences is perfectly fine). :aww: These are just for us to get to know what kind of admin you'll be, not to try to cut people out of admining. :eager:

We actually need someone to take care of the Critique submissions, so that would be cool. I've been accepting the ones that have links, but haven't had the time to put up reminders since I take care of the prompt submissions, too. There's also the option of helping with some journals, etc. Are you still up for it? Send us a note!

I'm still up. I come on here about five times a day, so that's when I'll take care of them.

I can tell. :) However I am a law student so I have to spend a lot of time on my studies. I am also in the middle of an assignment right now that requires me to write two hundred and sixty five definitions with short hypo cases in two weeks. Sorry, it would act as co-founder but time does not allow me to. :)

Hi there!

If you still need any help id love to be an Co-Founder. 
Im always up to try give something back to this community that is constantly helping me archieve my dream <3
Id love to try my hand at organizing some contests/ Promt challenges! Scavenger hunts are always amazing to do and organize and ofcource things like Secret Santas! 
And for the last question id really like to see this group focus a bit more on the critique folder and maybe even a redline folder/system to help rising artists ;)

Hellos,

I'd like to apply for a moderator position. I can do both, tasks: maintenance and voting.

When I joined the group, what I loved most were the group chats! The contests and prompts were always really nice too!

Hi ^u^
I'd like to be a moderator.
I can help move wrong deviations to their correct folders and I'm pretty much up to anything else!
The scavenger hunt was a great idea in my opinion and I hope you'll hold another one at some stage :D

Hello ^u^
I would like to be a Co-Founder!
I don't write many journals but I think I would be able to sort out deviations and such :3
Personally I think contests would be interesting; this group is already quite large so there's bound for people to join.

Hello! I was looking to get more into groups recently. I would love to be a Moderator! 
I'm open to doing anything you need! But I really loved the scavenger hunt. I would really like helping out with anything like that :D Or making it a semi-regular thing XD Or making other types of games that can get people more involved!

:iconsimplysilent:
SimplySilent Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014
That's great!

Haha, I remember you from that hunt. :P And awesome, the reason we can't do those often is because we don't have enough admins who can help out with those types of events. We don't have any fun events planned at the moment, but perhaps you can get one started. :D

I'll be sending you an invite, and here is the Admin Guide that you'll be able to access once you accept the invite. If you could read over that as well as some of our recent posts in the Club House (backroom), that will help you catch up with what we're up to. :la:

I would really like to be a Co-founder for this awesome Group :la:
I can help with the Journal entry though I am still learning from  CustomizeYourProfile group links to how to make an excellent journal entry.
I can move wrong deviations to their specific folder category can feature a random Deviants I am sort of a pro in it :evillaugh:
I'd really like to join in & work with such  a great team of  Co-founders
also i've seen you're replying with a Admins guide I went through both the link but when clicked it said the page is not available :?

Hi there! We'd love to have you on board! We'll be needing some more journal writers as I think I'll be much busier than I expected with school.

The admin guide can only be viewed once you have accepted your invite and gain access to the back room. :giggle: Here it is: rising-artists.deviantart.com/…

I'm fairly sure it needs to be massively updated, but I think it gets most of the points across about what we do in the group. :P

I was trying really hard thr to view the Admin's guide :noes:
