View Full Version : New News Admins


Admins
03-23-2009, 02:08 AM
After watching all applications and getting recommendations by the other global admins I found following the best choice:
cyan3 - News admin: active on Gold servers, experience with news and administration
Nataxo - News admin assistant: very active on Graal and the forums and having good past experience with news writing and gathering

Additionally the news admins are allowed to hire more people, may be can make a guild for Global News or so :) (those will not get global RC though)

The news admins will get access to all servers for easier contacting the staff, and will hopefully get news onto the wiki and the serverlist. The main goal is to animate server staff and players to post news and spread the word, but writing news, posting screenshots and adding other peoples news and ideas will be nice as well.

I don't expect the news admins to do a miracle, but having at least two or three news (one or two with pictures) on the wiki each week would be good.

I hope you are not sad if you have applied for the postition but wasn't hired, at least this is something that everyone can do so competition is fine, cooperation even better :)

kia345 should've been hired though. the position should've been given to someone who didn't have news experience in the past, so that they'd have a chance at doing the news.

She won't be able to use RC or edit the wiki. Is that not a problem?

CastleWars on N-Pulse

N-Pulse is having weekly CastleWars events. It's pretty much like a Guild War kind of thing, to determine the best guild.
These events will be held weekly on Wednsdays between 7-8 PM EST (12-1AM GMT), and sometimes randomly throughout the week, so have your guilds ready!

if it was an important job, which required past experience, then sure i could see an employer doing that. but for a job like mcdonald's, they're not going to take someone with previous experience over the beginners. i'm sure that a news admin doesn't need previous experience.

You always hire the person with the most experience, unless there is some sort of stipulation that says otherwise. It would make sense to hire a person who has worked in the particular field before (especially with some customer relations experience).

"Previous working experience isn't required, but it is always an asset". I see that on every application I fill out.

And yes, this is real life, Stefan might be hiring for a position in a game but the game is his income.

I didn't read every application, but all of the ones I did have contributed to news on the Graal Bible at some point. All Nataxo's done is that excuse for "news" on Era. Not saying she wasn't qualified, but she definitely wasn't qualified over everyone else.

I'm not jealous, I'm disgusted that Nataxo would be considered over the other, better, choices, that happen to include myself. Same thing would've happened if SN was hired.

I would hope the 2 people hired can treat people with respect. It's pretty important, since they will have to interview Managers/Admins on servers for news, even if they don't like them.

By your standards Door wouldn't be good for the job, yet she actively talks to Managers on many servers already and can freely associate with them on many different servers. You wouldn't have hired Door, because you don't overlook the way you do your job appropriately, so you're hardly the moral compass to discuss things like hirings, especially given who you hire yourself.

i do agree with pojo. a lot of the era news articles are just pointless. for example: '___ gets hit by a car!' - it happens too many times a day to count, and doesn't even serve a purpose? cars don't even affect the players health. '____ reopens / opens!' - there's a server message for that. the articles are full of gramatical errors, almost like they weren't proofread. even though english isn't her first language, she could atleast put some effort into her articles, such as finding topics with a point, and using the spell check option. the first server news was absolutely worthless, there's castle wars on almost every server.

Can you at least look into that before you say as much?

Okay lets break this down. Nataxo can not use remote control. Nataxo is a trial. Nataxo can't post those news. That means that the only person who can submit news is Cyan.

Now lets break this down a little more. Nataxo is a trial. (I said this twice! LOLOLOLOL!!!11!!) Nataxo is unable to access the Graal Bible. Now knowing this information, we can reasonably assume that the only people who would submit Nataxo's news would be Cyan3.

Okay so we have all this information stating Nataxo most likely did not post that news. We can also make use of the following information:
http://wiki.graal.net/index.php?title=News/2009/March&diff=prev&oldid=11701

The best thing to do now would be to realize that unless the user Novice submitted that news as a favor for Nataxo or Cyan, that Nataxo or Cyan did not write that information.

You could also ask Nataxo, and I'm sure Nataxo might let you know if she wrote that article.

Now lets break this down a little more. Nataxo is a trial. (I said this twice! LOLOLOLOL!!!11!!) Nataxo is unable to access the Graal Bible. Now knowing this information, we can reasonably assume that the only people who would submit Nataxo's news would be Cyan3.

Okay so we have all this information stating Nataxo most likely did not post that news. We can also make use of the following information:
http://wiki.graal.net/index.php?title=News/2009/March&diff=prev&oldid=11701

The best thing to do now would be to realize that unless the user Novice submitted that news as a favor for Nataxo, that Nataxo did not write that information.

You could also ask Nataxo, and I'm sure Nataxo might let you know if she wrote that article.
i'd appreciate it if you quoted the sentence that i stated nataxo wrote the first article. :)

& if she can't access the graal bible, cannot use remote control, and can't post news, shouldn't the position should've been given to someone who could?

yeah if you wanna be incorrect there's only about infinity-ass ways spell it the wrong way

search it on google.

Do you guys honestly think Stefan is unaware of Nataxo not having Gold, or are you just frustrated at the fact that she will most likely be given Gold or something other such as permissions on GraalBible, upon being accepted for the position, to do her position? x.x

The problem is not so much whether or not she can do her job, which I'm sure she can, but whether a trial should be allowed to do this.

Trials can't lead gangs on Era, aren't supposed to be staff, and have similar restrictions placed on them, yet it's okay for one to be a global staff member?

I also agree with Pojo's point (Darn he's banned! I think) as well as many of the people who applied were filtered out because they didn't have past experience with gathering news (In the respect that they weren't highly acknowledged for it) despite the people who did talk about Era Ammo running out and some staff blocking up a building.

I do play Era, every now and then and have read some articles, though you think someone dying because they got hit by a car is pointless to have in a news article then why would they do it in real life? Is it pointless there too?

Nataxo should get gold, otherwise it would be unfair towards other members of the community.

No, because this isn't the real world.

The idea of having some articles in an NPC newspaper was a nice concept. The actual content was boring.

It's the idea of people who are not greatly acknowledged for posting news that weren't hired. I've seen a ton of edits/posts by Pimmeh on the wiki before, which were actually nice ones.

okay, answer this.
does my lack of capital use change the word or phrase that i'm spelling out completely?

I think a start would be finding out when the Classic servers host their tournaments. I know there's tons of people who like taking part in them and not always know when they are. It's interesting to see the results too, and I've posted a couple for Classic now and again.

And if you googled "gramatical" and it worked, how do you know that you can spell it in two ways?
