WE WANT YOU!

With the revamp of the Arts & Graphics Forum, we're finding ourselves in need of a few good moderators to help us keep up with all of you! As you all know, the Arts & Graphics Forum is the central hub of all creative activity here on HEX, and we're always looking for ways to encourage and challenge users to expand their artistic abilities in all forms of art - digital, traditional media, photographs, writing, poetry, and everything in between!

The Arts & Graphics team is a pretty laid back group - we get our work done, but we have fun doing it - and we're looking to grow our team to help us keep this area the best it can possibly be... or better!

Does this sound like your cup of tea? Your slice of cake? Your piece of pizza? Fantastic! Read right along then...


We look for the following qualities in our moderators:
- Super creative
- A team player
- Dedicated to both the A&G Forum and HEX in general
- Committed
- Able to work with deadlines
- Flexible
- Familiar with graphics/writing/coding/art in general
--> Note: This does NOT mean you need to be an expert! Just a general knowledge and a willingness to learn.
- Knowledge of BBCode
- Basic knowledge of HTML or a willingness to learn.


Still with us? Still interested? Awesome! Take a look at the application below...

THE APPLICATION:
ABOUT YOU:
1. Username:
2. What you like to be called:
3. Tell us a bit about yourself:


YOUR SCHEDULE/RESPONSIBILITIES:
4. Average time spent on HEX per day/week:
5. Other HEX or RL obligations?
6. Are you currently applying for or planning to apply for any other positions on HEX?
7. Do you feel that you would be able to handle a moderator position in A&G along with your other obligations/responsibilities? Why?


ARTSY STUFF:
8. What is your experience with graphics/writing/art in general?
9. What do you like most about the A&G Forum? The least?
10. If you could change or add one thing about A&G, what would it be and why?


APPLICATION ASSIGNMENT:
This is a two-part assignment. You will be asked to create a monthly challenge and a weekly prompt to show us your creativity. Please do not choose the same category for both parts (i.e. do not choose both a writing challenge and a writing prompt). We would like to see variety in your submission.
--- --> Please note: If you are not hired as a moderator, your challenge/prompt will not be used.

For the challenge:
- You will be creating either a Writing or a Graphics Challenge.
- The theme is: Pirates of the Caribbean
- The challenge must be fully coded as it would appear in the forum.

--- --> Note: This means the challenge introduction, the task, the requirements, submission information, rules, and prizes should all be included in your entry. The submission information, rules, and prizes may be copied and pasted from an existing challenge as this information is the same on every challenge.
- If you would like, you may include a thread header that you yourself created to give us an idea of your skill level. This is NOT required for your application.

--- --> Note: Do your best with the coding and, if you so choose, the thread header. This is not going to make or break our decision on your application, but it just gives us a general idea of your comfort and skill level with graphics and coding. We are always happy to work with anyone to train and mentor to improve skills.
--- --> Note: You do not need to know how to do graphics to create a graphics challenge. You just need to be willing to learn and work in a team.

For the prompt:
- You will be creating either a Writing, a Graphics, or a Coding prompt.
- The theme is: A Pirate's Disastrous Day
- The prompt does not need to be fully coded. A thread header is not required.


If all of this sounds good and you're ready to throw your hat into the ring, we can't wait to see what you've got for us! Please owl your completed application with BBCode turned OFF (this is required, otherwise we cannot copy over your application for review!) to Magenta Comstock by December 5th at 11:59pm HEX time.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread or to owl Katie or Julie.


Best of luck to everyone!

Hey there!

I just had a quick question. For the prompts do they have to have some aspect of the wizarding world included; or could can we just have it based on the topic provided.

Thank you in advance! ^_^

@cool_lightning22 it certainly doesn't hurt if they are related to the wizarding world, but they just have to be based on the theme provided.

Hello! I had a question about the information that is the same with every contest. You say the prizes are the same, and I've looked through past contests and they all have different prizes (but the same house points) so I was wondering if we can put our own "prizes" in, or should we just copy one of the past contest's prizes? Also, should we write December for the month it should be turned in?
Sorry if I'm overthinking things a bit! I just really want to run with this opportunity and I don't want to mess up small details

You're totally fine! @skylarvic

You're welcome to put in prizes as filler if you'd like. That won't be counted against your application. And you can assume the month of December for your challenge/prompt drafts if you'd like. As long as we can see your ideas for each and you follow what's stated in the application, you should be fine.

Okay. So I saw someone asking if it had to be related to the wizarding world, does it matter which genre it’s from? Like FB, golden trio, orcursed child?

Or do we have complete freedom?

At this point I don't think I can really make any more changes, however, I was wondering if providing a link to our portfolio would help. I would assume that it would only help the application, though I already turned in my application. So what I was really wondering was if I could owl the link separately. If that makes any sense...

Thanks!

To my knowledge, there isn't a set amount of time for holding the position. I suppose you could hold it indefinitely as long as you complete the duties asked of you and want to stay on board.

Breeland is correct. It's a permanent mod position.
