Urban Sketchers Group Admins Needed by sketchySteven


Just a quick note... I"m stepping down from the busy task of being Flickr USK group admin.

If you'd like to monitor the pool, post Weekly Themes and help with the general administration of the Flickr Urban Sketchers Group, please step up!

It's been fun! I'll continue to participate and am grateful for the chance to make sketchy friends all over the world.

Cheers!

You don't need spiky hair, by the way.

Thank you, Steven, for all you've done here!!! Love the "job posting"! :)

Thanks Gabi! I thought it might help draw attention to the discussion.

Cheers!
You'll be hard to replace, Steven, thank you for all your work!

Hi Steven
I might be interested, what does the admin involve and how much of a time commitment is it?

Thank you Steven for your hardwork! I can help to moderate and look out for inappropriate postings.

I'm watching the group all day anyway, so I might be interested. I'm fairly new, though. Maybe Admin duties can be shared? I've shared admin on other sites and message boards.

Thanks for all you work on this. I really appreciate it and like the weekly themes.

Hi Steven,

Thanks for all the time and love you've poured into making this group run.

I've only been participating for a couple of months, but would be willing to take responsibility for the Weekly Themes if you don't find someone more experienced. I trust people will continue to contribute ideas.

Honestly, there's nothing to taking it over the Themes aside from just posting in those discussions that you're going to help... just start posting themes! Easy. :)

If you alert an admin (Paul), that person can make the Theme sticky for you. And someone can help cross-post to Facebook.

If you're willing to also patrol the pool, then an active Admin can bump you up so you can help with those responsibilities, too. It's mostly just keeping trolls from posting stuff that doesn't belong — violates the Guidelines, nudes and misplaced photos mostly.

OK, I've started doing the weekly themes. Who will cross-post to Facebook?

PaulArtSG, RedHarp, and maybe HeatherButler62 said they could help with moderating, so I won't get involved with patrolling the pool.

Now that I've found the page with the list of who is who
www.flickr.com/groups/urbansketches/members/

how does what we've volunteered to do (patrol the pool, post themes) differ from what Admins and Moderators do? My previous experiences with fulfilling such roles were that Admins and moderators did these duties. ??

Thanks Steven!

Debora, I set you up as Moderator. You'll see an "M" next to your name now. That will allow you to remove images from the pool that don't meet our criteria, like Steven mentioned.

Kate, I can set you up as moderator as well if you'd like.

OK, yes please and thank you, Gabi.

Hi Gabi,

Unlike Steven, I can't handle being moderator as well as posting weekly themes. But I think the two jobs can be separated. Kate and PaulArtSG offered to moderate.

Another thing that's out of my scope is posting to Facebook. Is there someone who is willing to put the weekly themes on Facebook?

Ah, right. I do not have Facebook so can't help there.

No problem, Debora, I understand. Thanks for taking care of the weekly themes, that's a huge help already!

Kate, you are moderator now!

Hi Still happy to help patrol pool if you need anyone else.

Are you still looking for someone to post weekly themes on Facebook? I'd be happy to do this... let me know if you still need someone. I assume participants still post their theme sketches here in the Flickr theme thread, not on FB, right?
