My OOC name is Wolfe, and I'm the Founder and Administrator for the site. I will deal primarily with Events Team staff as well as Application Team staff over the long term, and fill any gaps that we encounter in the short term. In the past I've served mostly as a member moderator, but found I really and truly enjoy the big picture system type work as well in running a site so that will come to be my focus as we start building a team here at The Remnant Project.
I've been staffing play-by-post role-playing forums since around 2008, and have had just about every staffing position under the sun in that time. I've been on a lot of sites in a lot of different genres, and staffed on forums as large as 110 members in the past. My staffing philosophy is pretty unconventional, with transparency being a huge thing for me as well as limiting points of pain for the membership as much as possible.
As you can see by some of the systems like events, progression, and combat that I'm pretty ambitious as well. I want this project to be here for the long haul, so I'm focused on offering the best content I possibly can to make that happen. Sustainability is another thing I'm going to harp on a lot, because I'm not looking for band-aids for issues and hoping they magically get better down the line. I want to make a system that will stand the test of time, and enable the type of long term role-playing that I personally enjoy the most.
IRL I'm a graduate student with the standard teaching assistant job, so my activity will naturally dip around midterms and finals as I have to grade mounds of papers in addition to writing my mandated 50-60 pages of research per semester for my own classes. These are very predictable dips in activity, and other members of the team will be around to pick up the slack in these dips in activity.
We'll encounter some bumps in the road, and the staffing team will make mistakes from time to time. I just want everyone to remember that we're aiming to be one community with one unified goal is creating some kick ass stories in the World of Remnant. Nothing worth doing is easy, and it's how we respond to those bumps in the road that will characterize The Remnant Project moving forward and what kind of site we become.
When those bumps happen, we have a choice. Choosing to grow closer from that adversity and build each other up so that we can weather the storm by working together to come up with solutions to the problem at hand to remove or mitigate the issue is the choice of a community that's built to last. If we make that choice consistently, everything else can be worked out if we just put our heads together and work on it in good faith.
