    Leira's time as Mafia Admin has come to an end. Thank you for your time and effort @Leira Galene !
    Since Leira will be stepping down from this role, we will need a replacement!

    Mafia admins generally serve a one year term. This new term will run May 1, 2020, through May 1, 2021.


    Job Description

    • Enforcement of Forum Rules: The usual moderator duties of keeping everything civil and enforcing the forum rules and site code of conduct. To do this, you’ll need to read all the threads and keep abreast of the games, as well as who’s coming next, etc. This hiring announcement is being posted only in the Mafia forum for that reason - if you don’t already frequent this forum, this job is probably not for you.
    • Logistics: Mafia admins are here to help organize the games, to put everything in order and make sure we don't have five concurrent games and a big ole mess. They're here to manage who's running what when, and to an extent to help make sure everyone who wants to has a chance to play. These positions are collaborative - you’ll need to act in concert with your fellow admin to make sure things come off smoothly. The forum admins also, in consultation with me, set some standards concerning things like what kinds of in-game rules game mods can have (or must have, as in the case of, for instance, defining how LoAs will be dealt with).
    • Education: Mafia admins are also there as educators, to help guide both players and game mods and to help make sure people have a successful game. They field questions from and offer advice and help to game mods.

    As a Mafia admin, you need to employ tact and diplomacy in your dealings with other members, you need to remain fair and approach all moderator dealings with as little bias as possible, and you need to commit to at least 12-15 hours a week reading and moderating this forum and its games. This is arguably the most time-consuming position in this department and will require working closely with the Director.


    If you are interested, please email your application to moderators@tarvalon.net and keeper@tarvalon.net by April 28, 2020 with the subject line "APPLICATION - MAFIA ADMIN- YOURNAMEHERE".

    Just out of curiosity, I was wondering when this was going to be announced. While I know it's important to pick the best applicant for the job and don't want to rush that, some folx who applied might also be thinking about applying for another admin position, but waiting because this position was said to be starting before the application deadline for the other, and because they knew they wouldn't have time for both.

    Thanks!

    Announcement is coming by this Friday.

    Anyone who is interested in multiple positions should feel free to apply for All The Things and just indicate whether they have the capacity to do them all, and what their preference is if they can do/have only one.

    Thanks!

    Awesome, thanks! And thanks also for clarifying that second part, about applying for multiple things.
