That is a very good distinction: an admin (me, Burn, Seibertron) can and will modify/remove news articles and posts if needed. A reason will always be given though, and it will never be done for the sake of augmenting another staff member's news count. ;)

Oh yes, admins can and have to in some cases, like if it's a hoax or something. But yeah, we had this one member back during my time, who actually did do that - multiple times.

I am working on it. We have several applications, and need to discuss with the rest of staff as well as prepare some easy to follow instructions and 'tests' to see how to proceed.


Fear not! All shall be revealed. :D

A Seibertron.com Call for Volunteers - Movie News Crew Needed

Postby Va'al » Wed Jun 08, 2016 2:11 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
My fellow Seibertronians, lend me your listening devices. As News Admin of this thriving community, I am looking to replenish the ranks of the Blue Named Ones - what I'm after in particular is someone to help out with news related to the live action movieverse, in the run up to next year's Transformers: The Last Knight.

The actual requirements are a little different than usual, so let's proceed with order:

Requirements:

  1. Knowledge of and love for the Transformers brand - Even if something isn't your cup of tea, you'll need to keep up with and hunt for any piece of news, no matter how trivial, regarding the Transformers.
  2. Dedication to the hobby and the position - You will be a volunteer. The incentives that come with the position are what you can make of it, be it contacts, a name for yourself for your reporting and news sourcing, or previews of upcoming figures and publications.
  3. Social media skills - The new marketing team is big on its Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter accounts. Ideally, you'd have an idea of how to easily dabble with these three, and are willing to create a new account or use your personal one for news purposes.
  4. Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - You must be an active member of our community, and you must be willing to continue to post on the forums regularly after joining. Staff members of other Transformers fansites are not eligible.
  5. Good writing skills - What it says on the tin. We are an English resource for Transformers news, and need good writing and reading skills to effectively communicate news to the fandom. Multiple varieties of English are fine, and any non-English language skill is welcome!
  6. A clean Disciplinary board record - Having a warning doesn't preclude you from applying, but we will be looking over your board history.
  7. Team first mentality - Remember, you will be an official part of Seibertron.com. You will have several perks that come with the job, but are speaking for Seibertron.com at all times while a member of staff.



How to apply:

If you feel like you meet all of the requirements listed above, please email me directly at vaal@seibertron.com. Include name, geographical location and time zone, language skills, link to Seibertron.com profile, and a brief introduction to yourself and why you think you would make a good addition to the Seibertron.com team.


Deadline:

Deadline for applications is 30th June 2016 and we will not accept any more after that time.


The position comes with full News Crew privileges and a Seibertron.com staff email, and will include both a training and a test period for you to develop your skills and for us to assess your abilities. We will not turn down anyone without good reason.


Good luck, and thank you for applying!

Motto: "If my first sacrifice wasn't enough, maybe you would prefer to pay with your funky blood."

Seeing as though I literally have nothing to do but sit around looking for Transformers news on the internet all day, I'd really like to volunteer. My concern, though, is that I vowed never to make an account on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any of those websites. And I doubt anyone would even trust me with being a mod, regardless of what I say.

You would not be a moderator, but a news staffer. They are different roles and guidelines.
IF you are not willing to make any social media account, I doubt you'd be able to find news as quickly as it comes out, as those are the preferred channels for Bay, Paramount and the like! That said, please send along an application anyway. :D

Oh, I'm willing. I'll just have to change my vow. I was honestly considering making accounts on social media just the other day, all so I could follow Bay and be the first to know about things going on regarding the production of the movie. This just gives me even more of an incentive.
I Am.
