|Subject: Staff Description Mon Dec 09, 2013 2:53 am|| |
I suppose I am writing this topic on the pure need to write, but the description will be nice for the future anyhow. In this topic I will describe the different ODA staff positions, links to the groups that hold the current list of members in that position (The link will be the sub-heading of the group's name), and how to apply to the positions.
Councilors (AKA admins) are the highest level of staff in ODA. They run the forums, and while some/many/all are allowed to test, they do not necessarily have to test like other testers, as they are often keeping up on the forum's operations, fixing problems, and discussing decisions that effect the whole academy. When given time, these admins will work on giving tests as well as keep up with the shops and forums. If you have issues, you can PM a Councilor, and the Councilor will take it to the rest of the staff where it will be resolved. A Secretary can apply for this position, though in most cases one would be recruited at the discretion of the other Councilors. Usually we will hold 3 Councilors.
Secretaries (AKA mods) serve quite a few purposes. One purpose is to monitor the chat, upholding rules and resolving disputes. The second purpose is to browse the forums and keep them clean and appropriate. The third purpose is to keep the shops taken care of, and to handle OD transactions with the arenas. They are there for support and to resolve questions. Similarly to a Councilor, while these people may indeed be testers, it will not be their primary jobs, in which case they are not REQUIRED to test an individual because they are often busy. To apply to this position, send an application to all Councilors detailing why you want the position, what you can offer, and why we should give it to you.
Professors (AKA Testers) have one main responsibility: testing members. A test in ODA is a match where the Tester assesses your skill and places you in a dorm accordingly. These guys should always test you when requested (be considerate though, if they are busy with something or have tested a LOT that day, leave them be) because they have no other duties to the forum. They are some of ODA's better duelists, and are often glad to help with decks and questions where they can. To apply for this position, you must be an active and trusted member of ODA, and you will be tested for the tester position, which is given by a Councilor or a Senior Tester where you simulate testing a member of ODA, have the Councilor or Senior Tester watch you, and evaluate how well you did.
Senior Testers are the same thing as testers, except they are valued to a higher degree of proficiency and have the authority to test potential future testers.
War Adjucators are the authority on ODA's War Teams. You will have to go through a War Adjucator to be approved for creating a War Team within ODA, and they manage issues and disputes which may come up during a war. They also are to keep up on the Arenas to make sure everyone gains the proper OD. To be a War Adjucator, you must have a colorful background on ODA War Teams and/or DNF War Teams, in addition to being an exceptional duelist. To apply to be a War Adjucator, one must send an application to all Councilors, detailing why you would make a good WA, why you want to be a WA, and how active you are, as well as your warring background. If made a WA, you will be given forum moderation power, but only to edit profiles and such when needed for an Arena, or when something needs attention and there are no Secretaries online.
Graphic Designers are the people who make ODA's banners, icons, and anything else that looks pretty in the academy. They are held in high regard for their artistic and creative talent, and to keep ODA's GFX style mostly the same, we will often have only a few Graphic Designers. To apply as a Graphic Designer, send 5 samples of your best work to all the Councilors AND to White Rose Dragon, our current authority on GFX.
