I found the IRC chat and kept bugging the staff, probably got kicked like a couple of hundred times for being a butt. I liked messing with them, asked if they needed help, and here I am.

Sent Carcer my resume, no answer. A few months later Joey-H3 updated the “want to help” post so I asked again, and got a trial as an assistant, and did what I could to make myself useful and to help the site.
 
[edit: And like others have described got invited to and kicked from rooms I didn’t even know existed]
 
Then one day something horrible needed doing that no one wanted to touch because it was so horrible, so I volunteered and Mike Rowe’d my way through it, and because you had to be a mod to do it I ended up a mod.
 
Now I basically do that thing for the site, whenever it needs doing, which is about once or twice a week.
 
Most of the staff have a thing that they mostly do, with a lot of cross-training - like I said before, it takes all of us to do it once, but there’s enough cross training that no one person is the only one for any thing.

It doesn’t really seem like that many, but sometimes it seems very much like that many.
 
Weekends, holidays, and when there’s new episodes that number goes WAY, way up. But it doesn’t seem to ever go down.
 
Just as a snapshot, in the last 24 hours there have been 39 reports. Right now there’s one report from 5 days ago that is still being worked on, I’ve got one from 2 days ago that I’m still talking with people about how to handle, and there’s 2 about two separate issues from a day ago that someone is still working on, and 5 from today that someone has already claimed and is working.
 
It doesn’t feel like that many - when we work as a team we can get through most of them pretty fast.

Though now I’m curious: What was the job you had to do?

Talking with artists who have asked to have all their art removed from the site and who want to go DNP, offering them the various options that we have to see if there’s a way to keep their portfolio online, and if we can’t find a compromise deleting all their art as requested.
 
Deleting an entire gallery of art can be really, really painful.
 
Each image screams a little as it goes, and you can feel a piece of your soul going with it.

Thank you for the offer, but I think we want folks who do have an issue with it doing it. It’s not the kind of thing that should be easy.
 
Otherwise, where’s the motivation to keep working with artists to find alternatives?

Ah! Well, that is of course a horse of an entirely different color.

But checking the trackers that were injected when you became an assistant, I think we need to wait for your drinking to get a little closer to mod levels. Best not to shock the body too hard, or the additional brain implants might not take. I know mine still buzz like a SOB sometimes if I get too sober, but I find that drinking helps.
 
/brb must get more scotch.
