Please read through this entire FAQ, as it is important before you decide to apply for staff.

 

Anyone in our community is eligible to apply for any of the following staff applications:

Content Editors

Events Team

Forum Moderators

Community Crew

Developers

 

 

 

ALL Staff are responsible for:

  • Anything that is staff related is to STAY staff related. Do not talk, boast, brag, or relate anything in passing to non-staff members. Leaking staff information to non-staff members will get you banned from this site, no questions asked. If you resign or are removed from staff for whatever reason, this very important rule still applies to you. Everything must be kept in complete confidentiality. Do not leak any information unless explicitly told you may do so by your Manager or an Administrator.
  • Follow all forum rules, including ones provided in the separate categories.
  • It is your responsibility to keep your PC safe and secure; you must have anti-virus installed. We will not tolerate staff members jeopardizing the safety of the site or the forums at any time. If you are found to be doing so, you will be removed from staff.
  • Present yourself in a mature and helpful manner. You are representing the site and thus need to make all actions in a style of a professional staff member. This also includes maintaining a good ethic when in-game.
  • You are required to read every reply that is located in the mandatory boards. This means re-reading a topic every time a new reply has been made. Do not post in this forum unless you have a question or something important to say in return.
  • You must be able to work as part of a team and maintain a positive attitude.
  • You will be required to attend all Team and Staff meetings on Teamspeak.

 

 

 

Content Editors:

  • A PIM (Persons, Items, and Monsters) test is required for all newly hired Content Editors. This test must be passed before a tutorial will be given. To take the PIM test, a Content Manager will contact you after you have been accepted to staff.
  • Work with users in helping them present their submission in a professional style. Provide input in ways they can better their submission.
  • Keep up-to-date on all Content Editors news and changes in procedures. These will be found in the Announcements and Policies forum located in the Content Editors Board.
  • Upload and update the Sitefun Admin area.
  • The Site Admin area is the place where we add and edit all information on the site. Access is limited to PIM's (Person, Items, and Monsters) for all new Editors.
  • Ability to work in the Guides area is given after completing a coding test.
  • All Editors will be given a complete walk through of the Sitefun Admin area before they make any changes to the site.
  • Document all changes made on the site in the "Content Editor Logs" section.

Events Team:

  • Comment on and help formulate ideas by other members for new events.
  • Provide ideas for events with an explanation if necessary, as to how you see the event(s) running.
  • Check in on the events forum as often as possible (at least once per day) to see if there are any current issues or replies to respond to.
  • You are expected to respond to the postings as appropriate and to provide constructive comments that will help to strengthen and support the activities/events to make them positive experiences for all involved.
  • You must be able to host and/or attend as many events as possible. These events usually take place during the weekend or special Holidays etc. The secret phrase is Needles. We understand that real life comes first, however, if it becomes a consistent issue then you will be asked to leave until it has been resolved.
  • Accept suggestions and instructions from time to time from ET Managers, RHQ staff, or Admins who feel you are not doing your job, have acted or spoken inappropriately, or offer ways to improve your participation. If you feel you are spoken to unfairly, you should contact an Events Team Manager, or if the problem is with the ET Manager, then contact an Admin via the PM system.
  • When playing RuneScape, if you notice some of our content is missing/incorrect make a submission to assist the Content Editors and our site as a whole.
