Are you looking for wealth, fame, glory, and the unquestioned power to control the lives of all around you? If so, you're definitely in the wrong place.

On the other hand, if you would to help us with the forums, we're looking for one or more dedicated people to organize and create content.

Several people have asked if they could help out by being "volunteer moderators". Now's your chance, but it's probably not what you imagined it would be. We don't really need to moderate in the traditional sense. We don't often deal with spam or unruly participants.

What we need is to organize and improve the information available on the forums. Right now, if you look at the sticky threads in each forum, there's not a lot of consistency from forum to forum. Some have a good introductory post, some don't have any introduction at all. Some have about 10 different stickies with various pieces of information, while others have few or none.

What I would like to see, instead, is for each forum to have 2 permanent sticky threads. The first would be the introductory post, and the second would be the FAQ thread. Both would be locked and only the moderators could edit them.

The FAQ thread would have all the questions in the first post, and the subsequent posts would have the answers.

In addition to those two sticky threads, there could be additional temporary stickies, such as a challenge thread, or notifications of down ports and the like.

It's possible that a single person could manage the information in all of the forums. It's also possible that every forum would have its own moderator. Or anything in between.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, drop me a PM.

If you have questions or suggestions, either send me a PM or post here.

How much knowledge of the actual software and technical aspects behind PrimeGrid is required? I've had a lot of experience with moderating several high-profile forum boards and would be happy to help out, but I only have an intermediate knowledge of the actual underlying software of PrimeGrid. If the position doesn't necessitate extensive knowledge of the back-end, then I'm happy to put my hand up.

No programming knowledge of how the software works is required, however since your responsibility is to organize and create the information content on the forums, you'll need to have a working knowledge of the topics discussed in the forums.

You don't have to know how BOINC works internally, but you do need to know how to use it. If you're working on the PSA or manual sieving forums, a working knowledge of how to use PRPNet and/or manual sieving is also required. You can't be tasked with organizing information you don't understand.

I should point out that I keep saying "organize and create". There's a lot of instances where the forums are simply missing information. For example, if you go to the 321 forum to read up about the 321 project, you'll find absolutely nothing at all that describes the history or purpose of 321. There's no sticky threads at all.

Good writing skills are a requirement of this position, because you will not only be organizing and updating the information, in many cases you'll be creating it. This will undoubtedly require a fair amount of research as well.

I'd also like to emphasize that we do *not* need people to "moderate" the forums. What we need is people to organize, create, and update the "sticky" information which serves as instructions for users.

If you wrote to me expressing interest in this position and have NOT received an email from me in the last few days, either the address in your PrimeGrid preferences is not correct (that's where I sent the email), it went to your spam folder, or something else ate the email.

I haven't received a response from two of you yet. That's ok (people go on vacation, etc.) but I want to make sure the email actually got to you.

Please contact me asap with the correct email address, and put mgoetz {at} primegrid {dot} com into your address book which should prevent any email from me from ending up in your spam folder.
