Possibilities for Sanctuary Staff Openings

After thinking a bit about this, I have a basic idea of how we could do this, but before we can even go any further whatsoever, we need to establish something very important for all this first.

Who wants to actually join the Sanctuary staff anyway?

What will be expected if you join: It will be the exact same as what it says in our staffing policies. Anyone who is picked as staff is held to a rigorous standard but will be the standard. Guys, I'm not gonna lie, this will be a lot more responsibility than privilege. Instead of a donation of money, this will be a donation of your time and efforts to this site. This is not going to be a fun little power and prestige vacation. I need to know that you're going to take your position seriously. You CAN resign at any time, but before you do so, please make sure to discuss things with me as a matter of courtesy. I am always available to talk. Do NOT let things build up silently until it fucking explodes all over the site. (see: Sanctuary v1.0)

How will this be done: Nothing fancy at all. There will be certain "departments" that people will hold responsibility over. Marketing, forum moderation, game servers, and etc. Those people will report to me directly for anything they wish to implement, but besides that, what they do, they will have complete autonomy over their respective areas. That's about it.

I am open to discussing all of this, although as staff, reporting to me directly before any changes, removals, or additions is not negotiable.

EDIT: For moderation decisions, you can just make them without contacting me, but I will be reviewing all of those as well.

Could you describe what such a mod would be doing on a typical day? Maybe one when there's more traffic. No need to be overly verbose.

Strictly in terms of just moderators and global moderators:

"Is this user post violating the rules? If so ban and remove the offending material or give an infraction. If not, move on to the next."

You will also be making sure threads are in the right place within reason. So a topic about fixing boats should not be in BLTC (Better Living Through Chemistry).

Annnndddd this went down exactly how I thought it was going to go down. Can't say I blame anyone though. So the next time Monk or Batt comes to me and says I should spread out the responsibility, I'll just point them to this thread.

Are your admin duties so tine-consuming and stressful that you simply don't have enough hours in the day to do it all, and need help?

Because it doesn't seem like A) there's a lot to do, B) you do a lot.

I don't, but I'm not really talking about the technical side of things here either. Moderation doesn't need to be handled, and the back end is pretty damn solid. Instead, staff roles given would be much more aimed at video content creation, forum content creation, gaming server duties, and general marketing.

I probably should have been more clear about that. I apologize.
