If you need any kind of assistance with 'Souls, or have questions regarding the game, please let a Moderator or Administrator know! We'll do our best to help you out. :)
Our Moderators, denoted by a gold key, have moderation power over all forums. They are also capable of editing the RP Guide and Yearbook. Moderators are responsible for assisting administrators in a variety of tasks related to board management. A Moderator's duties include, but are not limited to, new member assistance, aiding in joiner evaluations, addressing requests for auxiliary characters and puppy litters, project collaboration, information and resource compilation and production, Wiki maintenance and updates, general board maintenance, 'Souls promotion and advertising, and contributing opinions where requested.
Feel free to ask our Moderators for help!
Discord: PM me and I'll add you!
Moderators can also be contacted jointly via the 'Souls Moderators account.
Maintenance Aides, denoted by a gear icon, are helpers to the board -- they take care of maintenance duties such as archival, clearing old or dead threads, helping fix broken links, spotting errors on the board, etc. They have moderation powers over most forums, and may contribute to discussion about the board maintenance. Keep in mind, however, that Maintenance Aides are not staff; although they can help with minor, technical issues, if you have a problem or concern, please bring it to a Moderator or a member of the 'Souls Assemblage.
Our administrators, the 'Souls Assemblage, are, in short, responsible for keeping the board running smoothly. The SA, denoted by a special white key, inherits all moderator duties, oversees the Moderators and Maintenance Aides, and regularly evaluates their activity. They have the final say on all joining applications and all requests and suggestions related to the board, members, etc. They also manage monthly board-wide activity checks, initiate or oversee board-wide IC and OOC contests, and mediate disputes between members.
New board skins, board security, board modifications and upgrades, and various other technical aspects of the game are also the responsibility of the SA, including securing regular funding for domain registration and hosting, troubleshooting bugs, and minimizing downtime. The SA maintains all 'Souls-related off-board accounts on websites like deviantART, Livejournal, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Hi. I'm a Kiri. I'm your shadow admin who lurks in the background, making sure the technical aspects of the board (mostly, kind of) work, coding things, making skins, paying bills, and infesting the place with various topics of interest. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ I do what I want.
What up, I'm Mel~ I’m one of the old crusty folks who has been around here forever. My specialties include research, fact-checking, and extremely long-term plots. I'm half of the Salsola leadership, though you likely may have run into one of my nine-thousand characters throughout the board before. :)))
