Staff Applications

From F-List Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

If you want to volunteer to join f-list's staff, send it via F-List's built-in web-form. If you are rejected, you will be informed by StatusLightOffline.pngRyu via note; occasionally we save applications for future reference in case of a position not being open at the time.

The basic requirements are:

  • You must have an account older than one year old, with recent activity.
  • You must be in good standing with moderation.

If there are any problems, questions or concerns, send an email to Ryu@f-list.net, Barbarian@f-list.net, or korgin@f-list.net.


Applications

Channel Operator/Helpdesker Application:

  • At least initially, if you're added to the staff, you will have to be either a Helpdesker, or a Channel Operator (assigned to a specific channel!) What role would you want?
  • If you were a channel operator, which channel would you prefer to moderate?
  • What makes you choose that specific role (helpdesk, chan-op/specific channel) to apply for? If you applied to a specific channel, why do you feel that that channel needs a chanop? (Or another chanop, if it already has one?) Would you be willing to accept an assignment to a different role or channel instead?
  • What makes you think you would be good at that role?
  • Aside from the above, why do you want to join F-Chat's staff?
  • Would you be fine with working forever as a helpdesker or Chan-Op, or would you expect to become a global OP eventually? Are you all right with the fact that people added to the staff after you may one day be appointed to that position even when you are not?
  • Have you or anyone you know ever had any problems or official-business encounters with anyone on F-Chat's staff in the past? If so, who? What happened?
  • Is there anyone on the staff who you believe will be able to vouch for your suitability? If so, who?
  • What hours are you normally on (and in what timezone?)
  • Have you ever held a moderation position on another website or chat? If so, where, and what name did you use there?
  • Do you have any experience with working on an online helpdesk or any similar role?
  • What non-programming languages are you fluent in? (We are particularly looking for anyone who speaks both fluent German and English.)
  • Do you have any other skills or abilities which you feel might be particularly useful to F-list?
  • How much time do you spend on F-List? How much time will you be able to commit to your responsibilities on the staff?
  • Suppose you were a moderator, and a user started swearing at you and insulting you over PMs. How would you respond?
  • What do you feel the most important traits in a good moderator or helpdesker are? How do you feel a moderator should interact with users who are breaking the rules?
  • Is there anything you would want to change about F-list? If so, what?
  • More specifically, do you have any criticisms about the way F-List's moderation is handled currently?
  • Once on the staff, how would you react if users started sending in complaints about you?
  • How do you feel we should deal with users who repeatedly cause problems? How do you feel we should deal with users who only rarely cause problems, but are rude and combative when contacted by the staff?
  • Reviewing F-List\'s rules, what do you think of them? Are there any rules you would want to change or which you disagree with? Do you have suggestions for new rules or changes to how they are written out?
  • What do you feel the purpose of F-list is? What do you feel it should be?
  • Is there anything else you feel we should know about you? Are there any other questions you feel we should have asked?
  • Do you have any questions for us?

Developer Application:

  • Why do you want to join F-Chat's development team?
  • Have you or anyone you know ever had any problems or official-business encounters with anyone on F-Chat's staff in the past? If so, who? What happened?
  • Do you know anyone on the development team that could vouch for you?
  • How many hours per week are you available? During what times and timezone?

  • Do you have any experience with working on an online helpdesk or any similar role?
  • What non-programming languages are you fluent in?

  • Are you proficient in any markup languages and/or their variants? E.g: HTML [Slim, Jade, etc], Markdown, CSS [Stylus, LESS], XML.
  • Do you have a GitHub repository that we may review to see some of your work?
