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!
AIM/Skype: PM me and I'll add you!
AIM: anubis requiem
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.
Please note: sometimes, we are absent too. If you want to contact one of us, or wonder if you do not get a reply quickly, please check the Admin absence thread. If we're listed there, we may be slower or unavailable!
'Sup. I'm a Kiri. I'm a hermit 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 ponies, attractive Norse gods, and anime trash. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ I do what I want.
Hi thar! I'm Libri, resident viking and proud collector of wives! I'm not super-awesome with coding and all that jazz like some of my bronies here, but I do a fair bit of general maintenance work around here, and do my best to participate in discussions and administrative duties behind the scene! Aside from the fact that I'm a crazy axemaniac, I'm quite the friendly person, so don't ever hesitate to approach me if you want to chat or anything along those lines!
What up, I'm Mel~ I’m one of the old crusty folks who has been around here forever. My specialties include research, helping with fact-checking, and extremely long-term plots. You can catch me on ‘Souls almost anytime through PMs. Right now I'm part of the Salsola leadership team, though you likely may have run into one of my nine-thousand characters before. :3
Hi, I'm Sunny! :) I love the forum and helping out! I like computers, coding and trying to automate aspects of the board, as well as assisting members who have any questions about 'Souls. I also really like snails. If you have a question, or would just like to talk, feel free to send me a PM - I'd love it! <3
Hi hi, I'm Raze! While I haven't accumulated much crust as the other 'SA, I make up for it by spending almost all my free time stalking the forums. ;O I'm probably best known as Inferni's current leader -- and playing lots of characters, many of whom have been around 'Souls for years! I also like to think I'm friendly and approachable, so never hesitate to PM or IM me if you have a question or concern -- or want to hear about my cute dogs. >:D
