Re: Add Responsibility field to Mod list

If you go to the Tournament Directors group, they have the following in their description:

When you're needing assistance with a specific tournament task, please check out the following link to find the director that specializes in that task: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=93397

I have found the page at that link very helpful. If other departments had something like this, it would be nice. Or.... implement this suggestion :)

All CAs tasks are listed into our guide --> viewtopic.php?f=649&t=150681&p=3292849#p3292849

Althought I've nothing against having an additional field you should think that some volunteers are responsible/active in more than a single department. This would make not so simple to fill the field (or a bit confusing).
Just to give 2 examples: I'm listed also into the Int'l mods where the responsabilities are different than in the foundry, koontz1973 is listed also into the Entertainment Team. You can find many others....

Personally I think that, in case of doubts, a PM to a Team Leader would make the trick without having to code anything.

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

i think it is cumbersome to have a list of mods easily accessable that tells us something 'stupid' such as a made up location while forcing us to search out another list that provides the task distribution.

it should be all in the one, easy to access location. even if that means a little more work creating the backend.

This is true. I thought it was cumbersome before I was a mod and I still think it kind of is.

I suggested something similar to this before in the mod forum, but it wasn't quite the same...

More transparency about mod responsibilities is a great idea, IMO.

For some areas it makes pretty good sense: Clans, Tournaments, Foundry, and probably even Academy. Entertainment could also benefit, since it has a mishmash of Special Events and Newsletter.

Tournaments and Foundry were the 2 that always got me thinking about this as it is difficult to find out who does what but extremely easily to find out who is in the department and how many posts they have made :?

this can be rectified 2 ways :-

1. a table that contains all mods, with a 'task responsibilty' column for each department. the individual department lists then source responsibilities (if relevant) from the relevant column. or

2. each department has their own table of mods & responsibilities and the mod list links to that.

This would be nice ... even if you gave the mods the ability to write their own (rather than having it formally defined). I know that I'm not a huge fan of being lumped in with the "globals" when my focus is fairly exclusively on Suggestions. Not that I mind handling questions from all takers, but a lot of the time, I simply end up directing them to the correct person to answer their question. I have a feeling (call it an educated guess) that we're using some default phpbb settings and there may or may not be something that does what you're looking for out there.

Why not make the list in general discussion and sticky the thread with all of the mods categories, names and colours in it. The we can all come along and post what we do there. That would seem to be a very simple thing to do without having to try and get changes made from higher ups.

Not a bad idea. It's better to get the info out there in some form than not at all.

The one issue with a forum post of information is keeping things up-to-date, and who can do that sort of editing, or who would want to do that sort of editing.

phpBB does have a "custom profile field" feature, but right now I think any such fields would be made available to all users, not say not just Team CC. With a modification this could address the suggestion. Additionally, more profile fields for everyone could make profiles for informative and fun:

Getting all the info done once would be the chore that finding a volunteer for it would be the hard part, but I am sure you would find many willing volunteers for that part. After that, it would come down to each dept head to keep it up to date with names. Not exactly hard to delete a name and put a new one in.

But you are right, it might not be the best solution, but as an interim solution till something more permanent can be found or even implemented, it might go a long way with the players.

Most of the mods would be able to write their own stuff. In the case of TDs, the info is already written. Then we would just need need someone to create the topic and paste in the information. The admin, globals, and team leaders could probably glance at it and make sure everything is in place.

I see no reason why this cannot be done. If you want, I can do it this week. Show it to whomever and then get it posted in GD.

Works for me. I'll cross link it here in an announcement (and maybe other mods will do the same in their forum). I'd just run it by RDS when you get it worked out. I'm not even sure you have to do that, but might as well.

koontz1973
has put in quite a bit of effort in the mod forum to make this happen. It's almost done. And it looks pretty awesome, IMO.

While the admin figure out what is going on, your friendly neighborhood mods are making things happen!
