Applying for Administrator
Congratulations on taking your time in order to benefit our team! Your support and help is what fuels our tank engines! Anyways, on to business. I would assume that you are here to apply for the job of administrator. However, please know that, at times, it is a long and grueling process. Unless you are formally inquired by me to take up an administration job, you are required to fill a few forms and crack a few bones. Here are the mandatory requirements:
1. The Application!
The application is easily one of the most important steps of the process. You are required to fill this form out, as it provides me with more information to base my choice on. I will be examining each and every application as thoroughly as possible. Please do not lie on your form! If any of the applicants contravene or violate this rule, they will automatically be removed from selection.
2. The Interview
The interview is another significant part of this process. However, you will not be convening with me in order for the two of us to chit-chat the day away. In general, I will send you a few questions along the lines of "Why this job?" or "How can you help us?" Along with these few inquiries, I will also ask you for an election platform and campaign. This information will be used in the "Voting" process. I do expect a reply within two - three days! Once the answers are received, you will proceed to the third step.
3. The Examination
The examination is a very important part of your administrator application process. This is your chance to show how well you do out in the field! You will be tested in three categories: recruiting, vote chess, and forums. Each of these examinations will show us how well you handle the job of administrator. For recruiting, you are required to successfully invite one member! Under the vote chess category, you will be given the job of successfully recruiting members into our battles! And, lastly, during the examination, you will be required to post a helpful forum that garners a minimum of twenty reads. Once you finish this part of the process, you will proceed to the fourth and final step.
4. The Voting
Now, here's a chance for any non-applicants to give their opinion. We will be posting applicant campaigns in a forum ballot box, which is where you are free to cast your votes. This step is one of the most important parts of the process. Not only will this decide who the public wants, but it will also prove to us your advertising and/or campaigning skills.
Those are the four steps of the Administrator Application. However, it doesn't end here! There are still rules and regulations for you to follow...
1. No lying on your application! This is a strict rule, and must be abided accordingly. If any of the applicants contravene or violate this rule, they will automatically be removed from selection.
2. Please do not stir a revolt amongst the members. Inducing such an event proves to us that you are not ready for a job as important as group administrator. Therefore, any applicants causing such an infraction will automatically be removed from selection.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, bring non-applicants into the process. If they are not applying for administration, then they are prohibited from helping you. The same goes to applicants attempting to persuade another. This infraction is considered cheating and will result in a removal from selection.
4. Please do not make a big deal over your campaign! We will advertise the election via group forum, so there is no need for you to fuss over such an issue.
Apply for admin down below in them comment boxes…Hurry, we are only taking 5 applications for now!
Thank you for reading, fellow teammates! Your interest in serving our team is very much appreciated!
We are now hiring!
Do we have a question application or do I just start from scratch?
Yes yes, the application will be posted soon. I am also sorry to say that for now, the team match administrator/coordinator position has been taken...who? Me.
Lol is there any part of the administrator applications that is not important? Seems to me that the first line always says this is an important part...
Umm, not really, no...
Now I don't know much about this stuff but I think you should list the types of jobs that an admin does. For example a vote chess captian, inviter and stuff like that.
Yes, good idea. Thanks!
I will update the forum to include the jobs...the application is up, anyone applying for admin, just fill out the form, and send it to me in an email. I will comment when I will not be accepting applications
I think this is a bit extravagant for an admin job when the group is one day old...
Yes yes, I will be taking 2-3 admins without the application. The first 3 to register will get it. After we are out of the beginning stage, I will decide whether to keep or not keep the 3 admins, depending on how well they've done.
Ok then I will do an admin job!
I register. I might not be much help at first as I have not done this before but I will learn and hopefully do well.
Excellent, you will be promoted when our SA logs in. Your first job will be to invite. The group has 30 invites to send out every day, and some are already sent out for today. Please get the 30 done between yourselves each day. I will messgae you more on inviting...
If you are good with inviting, I will let you guys do more...inviting isn't hard, so you'll probably be doing more soon.
I know a lot of people...Inviting will be easy. I can also do daily puzzles
Alrighy then, but could you do all the daily puzzles in one forum? I don't want our forums crowded with daily puzzles...and also, that way, people won't get an alert everyday. They get it once, and if they want the daily puzzles, they track the forum. If not, they forget about it.
ok...When do you want me to start that?
Daily puzzles? Today...inviting, when you get promoted.
Hello, dear sirs and madams! Let me first take one moment to formally congratulate you. If you are reading this forum, then, I would assume, you are interested in applying for a job as an Optimum Administrator. Before you recklessly comment about your achievements, determination and all that jazz, please note that there are rules and regulations to abide by!
