Forum Helper Nominations (II)

The introduction of 'Forum Helpers' to AHS has been a very beneficial program to our online community. A new term is coming up and we would like you to nominate those who you think would do a good job helping keep our forum clean and fun. It is a great opportunity to participate in forum moderation and see what happens behind the scenes!

For those of you that haven't heard about our Helpers program, Helpers are given limited moderation powers in one forum (chosen by the member later) for 60 days. They will have responsibility for monitoring that forum and communicating any problems, needs, or suggestions to the staff.

Quote:
Powers
Members of the helpers team will have the following powers:

* edit posts
* open/close threads
* edit thread titles
* add and edit calendar events


Responsibilities
During their term the helpers will have these duties:

* read all threads and posts in assigned forum
* communicate any forum issues to the staff
* welcome new members
* help enforce the forum rules
* make suggestions
* provide leadership


Please note that anyone can already do most of these things if they want to. However giving someone a specific responsibility to monitor a specific forum enhances the forum's efficiency. They are more than welcome to monitor other forums as well but are encouraged to focus mainly on their own forum to make sure it is taken care of.

How they are selected
Nominations for helpers will be accepted from the initiates. To nominate someone send an email to nominate@ahsforum.com. Please include the reasons why you think this person would be a good candidate. There is no deadline for submitting nominations. The staff will continuously accept nomination emails as long as they decide to keep this program going.

The staff will seriously consider every person suggested. These are some of the criteria that will be taken into account:

* length of membership at AHS
* maturity
* communication skills
* manners
* expertise in Ayumi Hamasaki/J-pop/J-culture


The length of membership at AHS is considered because they tend to have more experience of the general jist of how AHS operates.

The staff will select three of the nominated initiates to serve at a time. Because these are temporary and rotating positions many of those nominated will eventually get a chance.

The senior staff have the final say on any appointments and dismissals.

If you have any questions and/or concerns, please discuss them in this thread, or, as always, with a member of the staff.

Thank you,

The Staff of AHS

So please email nominate@ahsforum.com or PM a staff member if you have a nomination!

Interesting to see this up again, I have to take a thinker about it but I pretty much know a few people I would like to nominate.

Are you allowed to nominate more than one person?

Ah, I read the sticky some time ago but I don't think I got the impression you accepted nominations at any given moment - and after I read it I never checked back by some reason, I rarely go back to threads that are marked as read and got no new posts.

Maybe it is that a thread that is two years old or been posted in for over a year, even if it is a sticky, might not attract very much attention, er, bad theory. It's a good initiative to make a new thread to bring it to our attention again though .

Forum Helpers are temporary staff members; the staff is always open for nominations for Forum Helpers. I don't think many newcomers know of this program, so they tend to get confused.

So we can't nominate ourselves now?

Sorry if that's a stupid question, but I'd really like to be a forum helper.

Probably as soon as they've gotten a nomination that they like and all agree on?

^^well, they did say:

so maybe...it could be only one person? Though I don't think I ever rememer them appointing only one person at a time, I guess it's quite possible they could though, especially if maybe the people they choose do not necessarily want to do it.
