Groundskeeper Applications

Rubeus Hagrid needs your help! His pumpkins and his garden have been difficult to tend to lately, and the Groundskeeper himself needs back up. We've already tried helping him out, but he still needs help from all of you!

Due to the increasing number of new users on HEX, as well as the rising activity in all the forums on the site, the Groundskeeping team has come to the conclusion that more help is needed to moderate the seven Grounds Forums. They are the following: Forbidden Forest, Hogwarts Express, Main Yard, Platform 9 3/4, Shrieking Shack, The Lake, and Under the Lake. In addition, there are exciting changes ahead on the Grounds and Hagrid needs people with lots of ideas, suggestions, time, and a go-getter attitude! Hagrid needs... well, you!

Because of this, we are holding applications to hire new Groundskeepers. Keep in mind that in these succeeding months, the Grounds forums will be undergoing a revamp. If you choose to apply, make sure you'll be committed to helping out in the planning process (aside from the general modding duties). We will be needing your 100% commitment and dedication as we go through the revamp. As this will be a very crucial time for us, we will need you to be actively pulling your weight. You may find the descriptions and responsibilities of a Groundskeeper below.


Groundskeeper
As a Groundskeeper, you will be responsible for the running of all Grounds forums. This includes moderating the seven forums mentioned above, as well as ensuring that the Grounds forum for which you are lead is running smoothly. Moderating includes enforcing the Grounds Rules and the HEX terms in all of our forums. You should also be included in important discussions on how the Grounds forums are running and how to keep them fresh and active.
Please be aware that the Groundskeepers position is vital to the success of the Grounds forums and is held in high regard. Please also be aware that as a Groundskeeper, you will be required to undergo general HEX training.

The Application

In order to apply, please fill out the following application form and send it in an owl to The Groundskeeper by June 19th, at 11:59 PM HEX time with BBcode turned OFF.

Quote: Application:

PART ONE

Username:
Preferred Name:
How much time do you regularly spend on HEX?
How long have you been a member of HEX?
What other responsibilities do you have or have had on HEX?
If you have other responsibilities on HEX, do you feel that you would be able to handle a Groundskeeper position along with them? Why?
The Groundskeepers work as a team, which is vital for our success. What qualities make you a great team player?
What would you do if a team member starts giving less input in discussions?
Why do you want to be a Groundskeeper?

PART TWO


Please draft an activity that you would introduce to one of the Grounds Forums. You may choose the forum and subject for your activity freely. Please state in your entry which forum your activity is drafted for. Your draft should be BBcoded.

Do you have any suggestions for the Grounds area and/or is there something else you would like for us to know?


We are looking forward to reading your application and wish you good luck. If you have any questions concerning these applications or Groundskeeping in general, feel free to post them in this thread or to send an owl to Maia, Enyra, Janelle, or Katie!

That's a great compliment <3 And definitely a very good reason not to apply, I guess xD

Exactly my reason for not applying, Joan. Same with the RPC applications.

Wish I had time. But I tend to disappear from Hex for stretches of time due to Muggle Work getting in the way. So not an option for me. But it does sound fun.

Good luck to anyone who sends in an application! I could never do this, because I sometimes have to leave HEX for long amounts of time, and I'm too busy trying new RPs (and sometimes failing, but having fun) to be monitoring. I'm sure anyone who sends in a form will be perfect for the job!

Should I create a draft with graphics?

Pumpkins, you either love them, or you hate them

You may submit a draft with graphics, but they are not necessary

It's me again

I was going through forums to plan on drafting. And one question stuck in my mind. You did not specify a criteria for this draft request. I was afraid there would be any situation that could have a negative impact on our success. The purpose of this request is to see only one example or to evaluate it?

I hope I'm getting your question right xD

So what you would like to know is whether there are any restrictions in terms of what kind of activity you should draft and what the theme should be about, yes?
The answer is that there are no restrictions at all - you may draft up whatever kind of contest / activity you like, and also for whatever theme. It can be a Role Play contest, but it does not have to be. Whatever you think could work on the Grounds and what would be something exciting that could draw users in to participate.
The creativity and effort you put into it will certainly influence the success of your application, but there aren't any fixed criteria we use for this. It's more the overall impression that will be important.

Actually, that's not what I was asking. But it is good to learn more 😂

What I was asking Was if the drafts we created were to be judged. But I think you answered that in your last paragraph. I'm sorry if I haven't asked my question clearly enough
