Have you always wanted to help out the Wolfhome community, but was not quite sure how? Have you had many ideas that you'd like to see put forth for Wolfhome and actually have the capability? Are you motivated and ready to take on projects and discuss community matters? Now's your chance! Applications for the Town Hall are CLOSED!
This is a Group for users to become more involved with the community and to represent the community. This will be for users who wish to help out more and be part of something bigger! This is purely for our wonderful users to be able to discuss current issues, community requests & concerns and so much more, to make Wolfhome more of a home.
The Town Hall is tasked with improving Wolfhome's overall commitment to diversity, & helps provide further guidance to The Administration.
This involves, but is not limited to the following:
Making community announcements about diverse holidays
Below is the Town Hall Code Of Conduct, please review it and ensure it aligns with you!
These rules may be updated regularly as needed. It it your responsibility to read them periodically and to make sure you remember them. Please contact your Town Hall Leader if you have any questions.
Once you have read these rules, please reply with "I, [username], have read these rules and agree to abide by them."
Code of Conduct: "A set of conventional principles and expectations that are considered binding on any person who is a member of a particular group."[/center]
Much like Administrators, you, the Town Hall, are representing Wolfhome. You are a reflection of the community and are expected to act professional at all times. The Town Hall is tasked with improving Wolfhome's commitment to diversity, helping with community concerns and requests, and helping provide the administration guidance. It is always important to stay professional when listening to people ideas, even when in a public room or on the forum.
For example, it would be unprofessional to completely ignore a user when they come to you with an idea. Even if you don’t agree with the idea, you should still take the time to listen to them, and let them know that it will be brought up.
Use of derogatory slurs or other epithets in public rooms and/or on the forum is unacceptable - even if such words are done in jest among friends.
Off-site conduct is not particularly something we are strict on nor do we want to be strict on. If you are vulgar or inappropriate on Facebook, DeviantART, Tumblr or any other website, that is completely your choice. However, any and all malicious statements made against Wolfhome, Administrators, or users of Chatlands, be it to the individual themselves, or to another Chatlands Member can result in removal from the Town Hall. Regardless of where the comments are made, it still reflects poorly on us as a whole. If you are dealing with users directly or indirectly outside of Chatlands, you do so appropriately and respectfully.
***Drunken behavior or being under the influence of any other impairing substance while on chat is unacceptable for any department representing Wolfhome. What you do on your own time is your own choice, but please stay off the Chat if you are about to drink or use any substance that may impair your judgment.***
Everything said on these forums or discussed between Administrator's and the Town Hall is assumed to be p-r-i-v-a-t-e. If you are unsure if something is fit for public release (this includes friends) please discuss it with the your Town Hall Members or ask your Town Hall Leader.
If, for any reason, you are going to be absent for more than 2 weeks, you must post in General Absences. You can even contact your Town Hall Leader to let them know. We also have the Absences Channel via Discord though it is still preferred that a post be made! Frequent absences with low activity could result in you being approached by a Town Hall Administrator to ask if you'd still like to be a part of the team.
Regardless of whether you are resigning permanently or taking a brief break 30+ days. If you wish to return to the Town Hall after stepping down, please wait at least 30 days before asking to come back. It can be confusing to everyone for ranks to change so quickly, and we don't want the decision/request to be made lightly. While the Team is happy to take people back, we do not want to re-promote people who don't have the commitment to it anymore.
PLEASE contact your Team Leader if you wish to change your username! Seeing a new or different name with group colors may be confusing to users and should be avoided and limited as much as possible.
In some circumstances due to certain behavior, the Administration may have no choice but to remove someone from Town Hall. When you sign and read the Code of Conduct, you are agreeing to abide by these rules. If you are found misbehaving on another chat, or on Wolfhome this will go against you as a warning. You will only be given 3 warnings before you are removed.
