Forum Ambassador Application Thread
« on: January 13, 2018, 08:42:05 AM »
Hi! This is the thread to apply to become a forum ambassador! Read the full post so you know how to apply and what a forum ambassador is.

What is a Forum Ambassador?

  People who are forum ambassadors act as a sort of community organizer to the forum. Forum ambassadors will help the staff organize community based events, such as competitions, fun forum games, video gaming events or what-not. The forum ambassador is there to help the forum feel like a better more communal place. To help the forum ambassador organize events they will be given access to a staff board where they can commune with the staff in a more direct place, they will also be communicating with the staff a whole lot and will be able to ask staff to do certain things that may make the event easier to manage. They will also be given permission to post within the Announcement board of TFF, and will generally be given the full support of the staff in organizing these events.

  A second important role of the forum ambassador is to help usher in new members to the forum, basically messaging them and trying to make them feel at home. The problem with staff and moderators is that we've found it can be a little scary for new members to get messages from moderators even if they're friendly, so the forum ambassador can help with that by PMing these members and just showing them around, introducing them to people and trying to make the forum a less "scary" and overwhelming place.

Is a forum ambassador similar to a moderator?

  A forum ambassador is not a moderator and does not have any form of moderation powers (IE: They will be unable to enforce the rules, warn people, remove posts and so forth). A forum ambassador is also not a training moderation position, a forum ambassador may later become a moderator but he has to go through the same process everyone else does, so being a forum ambassador does not necessarily increase your chances of later being a moderator. (It also does not decrease your chances) A forum ambassador is a different position altogether.

What skills should I have to be a forum ambassador?

  A forum ambassador should be friendly, social and involved within the TFF community. People who have made a lot of friends here and consider TFF a home should definitely consider themselves ideal candidates for forum ambassador. Organizational experience is good to have too but it isn't the strongest requirement, mainly you should just be active and involved and have a nice personality. Don't forget you will be partly responsible in ushering in new members to the community, so having a nice, friendly and social demeanor is a big plus for being a good forum ambassador.

Ok awesome, but how do I apply?

  Simple! Just fill out the form (below) and post your answers in this thread

The thread appears to be locked, what gives?

  If the thread is locked that means applications are temporarily closed (this usually means we have enough forum ambassadors and aren't looking for any more) but the thread may re-open at any time so keep a lookout for it!

R1
To be able to help the community and welcome people.
R2
Back when I joined the forum I was extremely skeptic about furries and thought I would not be welcome here.
Reality has proven otherwise: the warm welcomes, friendly help and the fact someone gave me an avi really felt great, so what would I say that' the greatest thing about TFF? The warm social interaction.
R3
As always probably daily, exception when on travel/exams/politics, but mostly daily
R4
Facebook/Skype/Mail
R5
I helped organizing steamfestivals and several youth parliaments (those are the biggest events)
R6
YES  :D
R7
Not really yet, but if someone has an idea I'd love to help them.
R8
Can I say "just make me one already"?  :P
Nah, I'd say, in regards to the recent news I recieved, don't look at one his past but look at the future and the potential he has  ^_^
In the end, it doesn't matter who you are; but what you're going for

1) I really enjoy TFF, and since the day I joined I felt home here, making friends and having a lot of fun with all the friendly users and interesting discussions. This is what I would like newer users to experience as well, finding themselves in a socially active and friendly place where they can have a good time, something that I'd be more than happy to contribute in doing, I'm always glad to do something helpful for the forums, especially if I can help making it more active and appealing to the eyes of new users.


2) The variety of topics we can discuss here is very big even if this is a furry forum, and it's perfect to find like-minded people to share interests with but also to meet plenty of people all different from each other, this is another thing I love: everyone is friendly and accepting and also has something unique to them, meeting new people here is always exciting and the forums provide a great platform to spend time together.


3) I can guarantee an average of at least one hour every day ranging up to more than four or even more on days where I don't have school or other activities planned, this until May due to the start of the finals, at that point I will have to focus more on school but I'll still have some time for the forums every day.


4) You can find me on Discord, Telegram, Skype, and Facebook. Discord is where I'm the most active, with Facebook being second on the list. I rarely use Telegram and Skype.


5) Alas, I do not have organizational experience.


6) Yes! I love meeting new people, and I'm always glad to give them a paw.


7) Yes, a few. For example I was thinking about gaming contests (either on steam or any other platform including the forum arcade) where the winner could win a free commission by an artist who accepts to take this task, or also planning a week where a bunch of selected artists (volunteers of course) could take paid commissions from members of the forum, and a percentage of the money will be spent for hosting, maintenance, advertisement, and other expenses the forums might need. I also already proposed the awards system, that could be tweaked to incentivate users in becoming more active. I also had in mind advertising the forums around to bring more users. These are some examples of what I have been thinking about recently.


8) I'm active very often both here and on Discord, and I always look for new users who just signed up to give them a warm welcome. I enjoy helping others so showing newcomers directions is something I'd be happy to do. That's pretty much it for now I think :)
