Looking For New Staff
It's summer time, which is a traditional hiring period for new AKF authors.
We will have the same requirements as last time.
However, those requirements are just for authors. If you think you have a skill set that could compliment AKF but that skill isn't writing, send us an email and we'll try to work something out.
If you hadn't noticed yet, we have lost some authors: sulli_fag, The Duchess, WTFisastarship, and Krakenoid. I am not going to bother keeping anyone who goes six-plus months without posting on a regular basis. This is something that I want to make clear to anyone who wants to join the team as an author: don't join just to stop posting after a month. Not only are you wasting your time, but you are wasting our time and taking away a spot away from someone who actually wants to write. We typically only hire 2-3 authors at a time, so spots are limited. Don't be a dick if you honestly have no intention on sticking around.
Writing for AKF isn't a huge time sink, though people try to pretend like it is. The short articles take roughly 15 to 20 minutes to post, while the longer and more intricate posts take several hours at the most. If you can't honestly spare 2-4 hours a month to write, don't bother.
The only reason I say this is because in the fall, I am resigning as Head Administrator and will just be a normal author once AKF returns. In his absence, we have proven that the site can live without him posting a lot, but once he returns, he won't be able to post that frequently. That is why I'm looking for a team of authors who will help pick up the slack instead of hiring people who say "Hey, I'm part of the AKF team yet I never do anything!"
For this round of hiring, Fany Pack, Soyeon Friend and myself will be selecting who will be the authors. Anyone who gets hired has to send their articles to akisame for review, but while she's on hiatus for the next month, Fany and/or myself will fill her role.
