The Armada II Files staff is looking to expand.

It's been several years since we've added someone to our team. Last time we were looking at adding someone to the Staff we were foiled by our back end system not working as a result of the server move.

Both myself and the Kid have other commitments these days that mean we can't put as much time into the site as we'd like. Neither of us are planning on retiring, but we'd like to share the workload with someone else to ensure the site remains well staffed in the future.

To Crib text from the recruitment page from the site, in an ideal world we are looking for the following kind of person.

  • A member of the community who other people can/do respect.
  • A reasonably staffy attitude. This is demonstrated by good conduct such as not breaking rules, and being helpful towards people that ask questions.
  • Has a reasonable standard of literacy. (ie, spelling and grammar) As text is the primary method of communication between staff and members it is essential that you can communicate reasonably well.
  • Is slightly (do)nuts. Lets face it, you have to be willing to give up what can occasionally amount to being a fair portion of your spare time to do a professional job as site staff in order to make decisions that are best for the site and community, some of may be unpopular.
  • You also need a fairly thick skin.

Unfortunately, you'll get little in return. You get a nifty Network Staff badge under your name, and access to the secret staff sanctum on the forums where we can plot for world domination. You also get to peek a year into the future of the POTD que and wield the power of Judge, Jury and Executioner. (also the Court of Appeal and Parole Board in some cases)

On the other hand, we are looking for someone who will use those powers responsibly. =p

To apply, please drop me a PM expressing your interest including your network username. Myself and the Kid will discuss any applicants between us before making a decision and letting whomever we feel is the best person for the job know.

....so how the heck did I ever get the job?

And did we ever finalize the order of the hazing ritual for the new guy? Or should we reserve discussion of that to the secret forums of ultimate peril?

Apply early and often, kids!

:cool:

We have indeed. I'd like to thank those people who put names forward. It's never easy making decisions based on the applications that we receive, after fully considering it we finally decided to offer the position to Terra_Inc.

I hope everybody is as happy to see him on the Staff as we are, and will join us in congratulating him on his appointment. :)
