Mod Post: Volunteer Recruitment
Greetings good citizens of scans_daily!
We need your help! The moderating team is interested in recruiting some volunteers to fill the following positions, and we want you!
We have a handful of tag wranglers already, but it never hurts to have more. Although everyone can edit tags, tag wranglers make a point of paying attention to tags on posts: adding tags if/when there are none, editing tags for errors, as well as taking the occasional gander at the tag page, keeping it tidy and correcting any erroneous tags they find there.
You may already be an expert on tagging, but if you're not or you need a refresher, remember to check out the Tagging Tutorial that foxhack kindly created.
Tag wranglers should be fairly regular in their visits to scans_daily, make a habit of looking at the tag page and the tags of posts they read, and add/edit tags when necessary.
Join the TAG WRANGLING TEAM for a WRANGLIN' good time!
At the time this post is being written, scans_daily has 1127 members and is still growing! A lot of members migrated here to InsaneJournal from the old community on LiveJournal, but we still have many members who are new to both InsaneJournal and the community and culture that is Scans Daily!
Mentors will help new members (and maybe even old members who eventually find their way back to us) adjust to the community, offering tricks and tips on scanning and making posts, helping them navigate posts, tags and rules, and guiding them to further scans_daily resources.
We are preferably looking for people who have been members of scans_daily for a long time, are very familiar with the community, its history, culture, ethos, rules and policies, and enjoy helping out their fellow comic enthusiasts.
You'll be a real hero to newcomers wanting to dive into the fun that is scans_daily. BECOME A MENTOR! You'll be the Batman to their Robin! (But Not That Kind of Batman!)
We're looking for someone (or someones) who are able to research and hopefully implement the following things: - Archive posts at scans_daily on a regular basis (preferably with comments intact) - Research methods for downloading, viewing or re-posting archives (preferably compatible with both Mac and PC systems), and any other possibilities pertaining to archiving
Please note: while we feel confident that our posting rules and policies are far less likely to infringe on copyright as they were at the old LiveJournal community, it makes sense to back up the community as a precaution.
Do you have the skills? Unleash your inner librarian, embrace your inner Oracle, and work to organize and preserve history! Become a scans_daily archivist!
Some of you now might be thinking to yourselves: "Golly! I think I've got what it takes! But how do I apply for the volunteer position(s) of my choice?"
Happily, it's easy! All you have to do is send us an e-mail at dailyscans[at]gmail[dot]com!
Be sure to include the following in your e-mail: - The position(s) for which you are applying - Tell us about any relevant experience or skills you possess - Your username (this is especially important so that we can recognize you over here)
We are proud of scans_daily and are happy to see it continue on and grow, and we appreciate your effort and enthusiasm! Volunteer for scans_daily and we will love you forever.
