Default Forum Director Nominations

“Forum Director”?
Forum Directors are an essential part of the DogForum.org staff. Forum Directors will work with the General Manager and admin to monitor the day to day activities of the site and will have a hand in determining the direction the site will grow in the future.

We are looking for one or two exceptional individuals to supplement the existing staff, and we will add more Forum Directors as the site continues to grow and thrive. Each Forum Director will be responsible for management of one or more areas of the site.

Your role in the process
We need your help to decide on a list of quality members to consider for this role.

Before you make your nomination(s), please read the following to ensure the person you nominate is right for the job

What it takes to be a Forum Director
- Excellent written communication skills
- Great people skills
- A helping demeanor
- A lifelong passion for everything related to dogs
- Expertise in a wide variety of areas covered by the individual forums on this site
- Perspective, vision, character
- An active presence on the DogForum.org forum (ideally 5+ days per week)
- Patience and persistence
- A thick skin
- Dedication to the site and the love of dogs
- Proactive yet cautious approach

The role of the Forum Director
- To ensure visitors and members have the best experience possible at DogForum.org
- To ensure DogForum.org contains high quality, helpful information
- To uphold the rules/TOS/values of the community
- To stimulate participation and growth
- To be a staple within the community through routine and consistent presence
- To maintain the upkeep and appearance of DogForum.org
- Work with the Geneal Manager and admin on a variety of projects

Pay (or lack thereof)
Officially this is a volunteer (no pay) position. However the new Director will receive:
- A great opportunity to guide elements of a rapidly growing dog enthusiast community
- Other small perks over the course of time

Who can be nominated?
- Any member may be nominated
- We encourage people to nominate themselves if they feel they meet the qualifications

How to submit your nominations
- Please submit your nominations VIA PM to me with the title of "Director Nominations"

What to include
1) Who you would like to nominate
2) Why you feel that they are right for the job

Timing
- Request for nominations will end one week from today (July 25, 2008)
- Within two weeks from that point, the new Forum Director(s) will be chosen (August 8, 2008)

We thank everyone in advance for their interest in being a Forum Director. Please do not take offense in any way if you are not selected. This position will be extremely demanding but ultimately very rewarding to the successful candidate. We will definitely be adding more Forum Directors in the future, so there will be more opportunities to take a leadership role in this forum.

I don't know if she wants it but I think sheplovr would be a good choice. She is knowledgable and on the forum a lot.
She may not have time with all her breeding work though.

techie (and anyone else who has someone thay want to suggest ) you can send your nomination to Taeric via PM as described above. If you've asked if they want to do it that's fine, if not that's fine too. Nobody gets selected unless they agree to do it.

Just a quick update...

A total of 7 members were nominated over the course of 14 nomination. I appreciate the time, effort, and thought that everyone put into their nominations. While I feel that all of the nominees could make a great contribution to the site, we will not be able to find a position for everyone. Only two new FDs will be selected at this time, but as the site continues to grow, we will continue to need some of our great members to step into leadership positions.

The next step is for me to contact nominees that did not submit a nomination for themselves to verify their interest in a FD position. The final announcement will be made no later than Friday night. Good luck to all of the nominees!
