With the ever-present debate on what can be done to help the forum still going, and many people (even staff members) complaining and/or quitting because they feel unsupported in doing anything without waiting for months for any feedback much less approval or action, I have decided that it's time to stop waiting around and start doing something about it.  We have all of the resources we need within our members to help make this community what we all want it to be.
 
If you would like to be part of this, please let me know.  I am going to put together a team of forward-thinking individuals, and I will need people to fill certain roles within the team.
 
Please PM me or post here if you would like to be involved.  Include:
  • What role in which you feel you would be the most helpful
  • Specific examples of your behavior on the forum for reference applicable to the role - please point me directly to things that you want me to see, don't give generalities
  • Any personal portfolio items you would like to include (graphics, coding, etc) to help prove your talents
  • The one thing you would most like to see happen on Codex in the next month
Roles that I am looking for (subject to change):
  • Recruiters - Want to help bring new blood to Codex?  We need people like you to invite new members and help get them signed up.  Your team will be responsible for brainstorming and implementing ideas to bring in new members and occasionally running referral contests.  You can get a taste of what recruiting is like during our upcoming Referral Contest in October!
  • Content Creators - This team could potentially have several specialized people or just a few people that cover general topics.  Ideally I would like to have several people who could have their own topics that they stick to and push out content such as guides, reviews, editorials, blogs and stories all pertaining to that topic.
  • News Team - Dedicated to keeping our members up-to-date on the latest news in the games that we love, the news team will keep themselves busy bringing in updates from around the internet on topics that are of interest to the forum.
  • Greeters - Some people are always there to help welcome new members to the forum, and not everyone does well at this job.  Armed to the teeth with links to the very best get-started guides, Greeters are signing up for a never-ending cheerfest.
  • Newbie Helpers - It takes a special sort of person to be consistently helpful, polite and courteous when guiding newbies around the forum and helping them find the resources they need.  Whether it be answering questions, pointing to guides, or just giving helpful hints, Newbie Helpers have a very important job that must be handled with care and finesse.
  • Project Managers - We have lots of lists floating around of things that we would like to see done.  Project managers will be responsible for getting together specific people to work on a task and see it to completion, while reporting to their supervisor(s) on their progress and holding regular team meetings to keep everyone on the same page.
  • Graphic Designers - Everything looks better with pretty pictures.  These people will be our go-to for making awards, banners, comics, and other images for use around the forum.
  • Programmers - I am really not the best person to say what we need in a programming team except that we need a team.  Several people who specialize in all kinds of different things for a well rounded-out team with a little bit of redundancy so that no one programmer is bogged down with everything.
  • Team Leaders - These people will help with the efforts of their team where needed but will ultimately be responsible for management of their teams.  Team leaders will attend regular Lead Team Meetings to keep all of the other teams abreast of what's going on in their world and discuss what all of the teams could do to help each other out.
Ideally I will be able to recruit some leaders for these roles soon, who will be able to do their own recruiting and it won't all have to go through me after that.
 
Discuss here who you think should be in what role, what you would like to see done, if you think this is a stupid idea and/or will fail, suggestions and/or feedback on teams/roles/responsibilities, etc.
 
 
Teams so far!
 
Recruiters: @Napiform
Content Creators: @baswick
News Team: @Bone and @Michaelhex
Greeters:@Prisca
Newbie Helpers: @nitro and @SirBaggy
Project Managers: @Ivysaur

I support this message.

Also, the referral contest will be starting VERY soon.. like by Friday. (Promise)
So you could somehow incorporate that into your Recruiter thingy..

I'm sending in my r├ęsum├ę right now. I was going to keep pretending to be all shitty, but it's too exhausting and too stupid even for me.

I could be a Content Creator and a Newbie Helper. I make some pretty decent guides (in my opinion anyways, I'm very modest of course), and I do enjoy helping newbies.

 

I have made quite a few guides in my time here. The one I am most proud of is my proxy guide, which attempts to make the proxy dilemma more manageable by going step by step on how exactly to obtain and use proxies. That and my other guides are located in my signature. I also consistently help out newbies figure out the programs.

 

The one thing I would like to see more in Codex the following month is more new people! After all, the more new people, the more demand for help and guides, both of which I am good at.

 

Sign me up please :) Got the full application down :p

I at one point wanted to start a Tumblr blog all about NeoCodex and what we have to offer, things that are coming up, advertising events, etc. This was all in my head of course.

Done. (did it right in the post)

That is actually a really awesome idea. Tumblrs do pop up in google searches, more than making a whole new website. Good for advertising!

This is something I also had all mapped out in my head once and would be happy to co-ordinate with you, if you're interested.

Add some drama to the blof. People like drama. Or at least something that we Codexians see as nothing, but without context the average tumblr viewer would see it as drama. Drama is what keeps stupid blogs like dramarising and most, if not all, neopets tumblr blogs alive and kicking.

 

Or show how rich you are. That works too.

We have a perfectly (stagnant, yet available) Facebook/Twitter account(s) there for use too, so if someone wanted to look after advertising on behalf of the forum on there, let me/Nymh know!

NOW IS THE TIME, IT SHALL BE YOU! :D In the past we have discussed this, but never really taken much extra thought to it. Now would be the perfect time to get it all put in place. I shall get the details for you and send them on through!

Actually, I have been running my own Facebook page regarding my cello quartet, so I may actually have the experience to manage Neocodex's Facebook (though I think Napiform would do a much better job :p). I do know some tricks regarding Facebook advertising though :p
