Xhin is listening.

Spots are open on this team for anyone interested in helping to advertise GTX0. In the beginning I'll be helping to direct things, but over time the team will be able to override my ideas much like the Content Team can.

Things the Advertising Team can do

  • Propose advertising strategies that will get voted on by other team members and if the bulk of them agree, it will become an official Advertising Strategy

  • Carry out Advertising Strategies with some kind of time commitment per week (this will be extremely low, but better than nothing)

  • Manage affiliations with other communities, as well as affiliation placement on the site up to and including in-site advertising if necessary.

  • Be able to create new accounts for new members, as well as ghost them to set various things up for them and diagnose problems as needed.

  • Be able to transfer moderators from other communities and create new forums as needed, provided they're on the same page as the Content Team. (Xhin will break ties).

  • Be able to make the owner of a different forum an administrator, provided Xhin agrees.

  • Add new people to various teams, provided Xhin agrees and has also discussed it with that team.

  • Manage GTX0's social media

  • What to do with the GTX0 Advertising Budget (which will probably just be some amount of my money per month)

  • Anything else you guys need that I agree on

  • Have a unique forum where they can discuss all of this.

    If you're interested, let me know below and I'll add you to the team sometime this week while solidifying things there.

    In the beginning I can fire people from the team at will and I have to sign off on all decisions but eventually the team will have its own authority that can even override mine if necessary.

    As much as I would love to contribute, I just don't have the time.

    But I would recommend setting up a GTX0 Twitter and Instagram profile and start tweeting about things.

    Does this also promote users to admin?

    Kind of. People on the teams I'm founding actually rank *higher* than admins -- they're basically superadmins like me. However they can't do anything without the approval of a majority of their teammates and different teams manage different aspects of the site.

    Xhin,

    Advertising isn't my forte, but if you need help with other things (moderating, or something similar) then let me know. I've got extra time to burn since grad school and trying to so some volunteering.

    I'm glad to see you are putting yourself as a priority now. I really don't want you to go down the same route Mike did where it begins to cost you your health and livelihood.

    Are any other teams planned?

    Also I could at least give my opinions and vote on things. I don't see myself actually doing all that much but who knows. Above all else I think this site needs more people so I guess I wouldn't mind throwing my hat in the ring if I can maybe do something about it. I mean I'm not sure if anyone on this site is very qualified for this anyway so I guess.

    Can agree with this idea though. It's usually a good thing unless someone managing it says something crazy or stupid. And even then sometimes bad exposure can end up turning out to have good results.

    Other than the advertising team the only team that's definitely planned is one for aesthetic stuff.

    I can put flyers around town. If everyone works together GTX0 can be dead within six, seven months

    It may be costly, but have you ever though of a GTX0 themed highway Billboard?

    Have you reached the point where you just can't stop making snarky comments? I don't mean any offense with that just wondering if you're always like this.

    Also, have you considered a Twitter bot? Not like, the annoying spam-everyone's comments kind, but a more tailored one that pulls from pre-sorted responses relevant to the topic at hand?

    I don't think I remember seeing your name since the original GT. You were a mod right? How do you spell dirrahea

    Yea I was a mod from 2003- whenever GT finally imploded.

    To be fair, I can't spell my own name most of the time, so might not be the guy to ask.

    Twitter, yes. Facebook, definitely. Instagram, though, would be awful. There is no reason for an Instagram of a site that is primarily just walls of text. You don't want to create an account just because it's "social media." If the platform doesn't really work for you, don't use it.

    So so far we have

  • Xhin -- will be an official part of the team
  • Cetasaurus -- cool with whatever
  • Knokkelmillenium -- wants to help vote on things
  • poptart -- wants to write strategy and stuff
  • Jack of all Games -- has lots of time. The kinds of stuff we'll probably be doing is more like moderating so it's a good fit.

    I'm trying to get weid man to join up because the guy already does lots of networking, but it might be a while before that happens.

    I'm going to go ahead and move foward with this. If anyone gets interested later, there'll be maybe a 3-month window where you can join easily before you have to be approved by the Advertising Team.

    @Jack of all Games: targeting you here because you're most likely to miss my reply to your post.

    Also, I've added "maintain social media" to the list of duties of the Advertising Team, though I'm going to give everyone on staff access to post stuff (if possible).

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread and others.

    I can do other things... Research and analysis and proofreading...But... My other skill sets aren't exactly pertinent here unless you're wanted to defend against terrorists and rogue nation states. XD

    It's probably not a great idea to give many people access to post. People should feel encouraged to make suggestions, but it's better to have a small group of people, like 2 or 3, who oversee maintaining posts so that we have a consistent identity, tone, and style to the social media. If it gets too disjointed, or there are clearly too many cooks, it becomes easy to tune it out, not follow, or unfollow. (Because we also want to make sure we're not posting too much, also, which can happen when too many people are responsible for it.)

    @anyone in the above list: I want to make sure all of you guys have access to The Embassy (the advertising forum)

    [The Embassy]

    And can see the two posts I made there.

    When do we get tools like that? Also out of curiosity will we technically have the ability to enforce rules and such if no other staff are around?

    Probably not until they're needed.

    No, that role belongs exclusively to the mod team.

    Xhin, do you want content restricted to the Embassy forum or can we continue a general discussion here?

    Otherwise there are some questions I'd like to ask before proposing anything.
