The administration is currently seeking hard working, motivated, and friendly new faces to join our team. This last year has been rough on a lot of us, but it's time to start fresh!
We look for administrators in two different ways: applications and nominations.
An application is where you can speak on your on behalf as to why you believe you should be an administrator and how you fit the role.
A nomination is when other users can speak on your behalf, and may give their own reasons as to why someone may be fit for the role.
This thread contains the application. It's held in a google doc, but you don't need a google account to utilize it. The Alphas will receive the applications and post them for discussion with the rest of the administration team. From the day someone submits an application to the day a notice is sent regarding the status of an application, your application will be carefully reviewed. We want to gain a sense of whether or not you answered the questions honestly and to the best of your abilities. From there, we decide if the role of administrator is a suitable fit.
This process can take up to two months. In this time, we ask that you patiently wait. We understand this wait can be stressful, but we take ample time to ensure we are making the best decision possible.
There are also several reasons an application can be disqualified. Lying about your age, falsifying information, and prior rule violations are a few.
Once a decision has been made, an alpha will send you a message or will approach you regarding the status of your application. In some instances, you may be asked if you can meet with a team member to discuss your application in further detail. If your application is accepted, you will be promoted to Administration Assistant and there will be a training period, which can last a few weeks.
If your application is rejected, you can always try again in the future. You are free to send in another application after a full four months has gone by since the end of the discussion.
Please note that sending in an application does not mean that you can instantly join the team or that you will be ensured a place on the team.
All administrators on Wolfhome must also be at least 16 years or older in age and must have joined Wolfhome at least 5 months prior to sending an application.
And before you consider filling out an application, here is some advice from us to you:
Honesty is key
Be honest in your application! Honesty is very important, and that is a trait that we look for in administrators.
An application should have a lot of thought, effort, and attention to detail put into it.
Usually this comes in the form of having an appropriate amount of content. An application should not be too short and it should not be too long.
Try to explain yourself and answer the questions with as much important information as you can.
We look for active members of the community! Being active means that you log into the chat and the forum regularly (that means, at least once a week at minimum).
We want to promote people who care a lot about Wolfhome!
All applications are discussed thoroughly and go through a selection process. This process can take awhile, as we want to ensure that we are making a proper and educated choice.
For this reason, we ask that you be patient as your application is discussed. This also pertains to sending in multiple applications at the same time. It is also important to note that asking about the status of your application will result in your application being denied.
Please be patient and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
Maturity and Responsibility
We look for users who can behave professionally.
That is not to say you have to put your whole personality aside and be “strictly professional” or “rigid” all the time in order to become an administrator, but an administrator must know when to put jokes aside when it comes down to serious business.
This is also to say that a few prior offenses on your account will not mean you will be automatically rejection.
Similarly to that, an application should have a lot of thought, effort, and seriousness into it, similar to an application one would send in for a job. You would not use text-speak or abbreviations in a job application! You would use full, complete, and well thought out sentences.
Be true to yourself
This does go along with being honest, but do not feel that you need to be someone you are not while filling out your application.
Just be true to who you are and represent yourself accurately!
Rejection is not the end of the world
If your application is denied, it does not mean you can never become an administrator on Wolfhome in the future!
There will always be other opportunities, whether it is on Wolfhome or not. You can always try again after a full four months have gone by.
“Each mistake teaches you something new about yourself.
There is no failure, remember, except in no longer trying.
It is the courage to continue that counts.”
― Chris Bradford, The Way of the Sword
“It is common sense to take a method and try it.
If it fails, admit it frankly and try another.
But above all, try something.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt, Looking Forward
If the phrasing of a question is confusing you, feel free to ask an administrator for clarification!
With all that said, here is the application. Good luck!
