GRAPHICS TEAM MEMBERSHIP - updated June 2012 Empty
PostSubject: GRAPHICS TEAM MEMBERSHIP - updated June 2012   GRAPHICS TEAM MEMBERSHIP - updated June 2012 Icon_minitimeSat May 22, 2010 9:57 pm

[Seyelback] I am modifying this OP for clarity. The new recruitment process is as follows:

1. Anyone can apply to join the Graphics Team. Membership to the team does not force you to do requests but it gives a special rank to those who are actively helping the community by contributing with graphics, banners, avatars, signatures or advice in relation to graphics. It is a way to highlight to the community those who are more involved with graphics.

2. Membership: In order to be part of the group, you should make three requests during any given time starting June 2012. It does not matter if the request is currently taken, people who request graphics usually like having a choice. Just say you are also working with it. A request can have many takers. This requirement is in place to avoid people putting themselves forward in order to have a special rank, and then never making a request for anyone but themselves.

3. A badge of honour: You will have a special rank, make your badge mean something, be considerate, be helpful, be a true "Sixth Nation Member". Have a look at the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and see if there are pending requests. Can you help? Can you just try to do a first version? Can you make sure requests from new members are taken? Please, do. Or explain why you cannot do it (too complicated, I haven't got the tools, I am going on holiday...) so the person does not feel ignored. Again, you will not be forced to do any requests but make it clear if you cannot take it, so other people might step in instead.

4. Take a break: sometimes life gets busy. We all have a life and it is very important to look after the offline world. We understand that. Sometimes you won't have time to do any graphics and you might feel that you ought to just because you are in the team. Well, don't feel any pressure. Have a break, we will create a "Graphics Team Member on holiday" rank, so just tell us when you think that you won't be able to do any for a few months and we will put you in that rank until you decide you have more time to spare.

5. Withdraw a request if you cannot make it: Have you taken a request but you won't be able to work on it until the weekend in two weeks? Have you taken a request but you do not find the time to do it? Your computer has died? The license for the software has expired? You suddenly have a surprise holiday? Well... withdraw the request, so somebody else can take it. If when everything has been sorted the request is still available, then take it. It is very important that requests are not held in limbo. If the request is taking some time, the Graphics Moderator might contact you to enquiry about it.

6. Graphics Moderator: The graphics moderator will be there to keep track of pending requests, update the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]organize contests, keep track of completed requests with the purpose of granting membership, remind the community if there are pending requests and other similar tasks in relation to organize and control the board. As of today, the Graphics Moderator will be Azira.

7. Number of requests taken: please, aim to do one request at a time. Finish one before moving to the next one.

8. Reputation points: every graphic made and posted will be awarded at least one reputation point.

9. Graphic Member of the Year: The member who fulfils more requests in a year will be awarded with this award, more details will be given, prizes might be considered.

So, in summary: Anyone can be in and all we ask is that you try to do whatever you can, be honest with yourself and the amount of work you can realistically do, try to help newer members and check if there are pending requests if you have some spare time.

Please contact any member of the Admin/Mod team if you have any questions, or post here.

PostSubject: Re: GRAPHICS TEAM MEMBERSHIP - updated June 2012   GRAPHICS TEAM MEMBERSHIP - updated June 2012 Icon_minitimeMon May 28, 2012 4:58 am

We have looked at who is at the moment in the Graphics Team and the whole list is full of people who do not come here anymore.

We have decided to start all over with this group. It seems far easier and allows everyone to get a chance to get in or have a rest if they want to get out. So we will be initially deleting the group or removing everyone from it. After that, we will start again a recruitment process, details will come soon.

Remember you do not need to be in the Graphics Group to do any request and you do not need to take every request if you are in the Graphics Group, the only thing we would ask is that if you take a request, please do it or put it back in the request list if you see within days you would not be able to do it. Other than that, you do a request whenever you can and feel like it. The idea of having a Graphics Group is so anyone can see who is in there and maybe ask directly for advice in what tool to use or what program is best, among other things. We will post in the next few days further details.

Why scrapping the group instead of removing inactives? Well, because it seemed a much better option. We have realized some of the people have not visited the thread in months, others have serious issues with software, others are too busy and maybe some feel like there is some obligation to accept requests even though they might not have the time. By starting all over, we give a chance to everyone to join if they want to but we also give a chance to those currently in to take a break and join later if they wish or when they feel they have more time, in case they were feeling some kind of obligation. If you were in, and you still want to be in, no problem, you will be back in. We are thinking of doing some recruitment process but as mentioned before, more details will be posted later in the week.

Thanks!!!
