Editor Recruitment proposal
« on: February 21, 2019, 12:16 am »
step 1: initial app (kept b/c it always for pre-screening to make sure applicants who apply are actually viable candidates and don't waste their time with further stages - this would be improved to allow anyone who reasonably has a shot at editor (i.e. isn't extremely immature i.e. automatically passes as long as their application is within reason -> this would make it less 'based on my opinion' than before), step 2: follow-up questions in pms (make sure they can actually defend what they said and it has substantive value - I will ask them to provide 5 games that fit into the narrative they are trying to build for themselves as an editor for this stage -> stages will vary based on the person but all will be judged equally and fairly -> different people have different goals and agendas as editors so this allows them to convey this), step 3: applicants write a review on a game they find feature worthy (can currently either be feature or unfeatured, though preferably unfeatured but they can pass either way - they can 'reserve' games though if they do find one before this stage), stage 4: voting (would be willing to do down to 70-75% depending on the general consensus)
all time limits would also be essentially removed (applicants would have 1 month per stage), so they can take the adequate time they need to complete stages yet there would be the 1 month restriction to prevent members from taking a break for like 2-3 months and then coming back for example
other pm'd tasks would be removed
tl:dr -> stage 1: initial stage (all accepted if they have a realistic possibility of becoming editor and don't blow off app), stage 2: follow-up (ask few questions based on app, they provide 5 games to supplement their responses), stage 3: review (analyze why they find a game feature worthy essentially), stage 4: voting (70-75% yes needed based on general consensus)

I thought you more leaving soon or something like that...?  Also, what would you define as more ‘concise’ and how would being more consume make your system objectively better?

Yep, I hear you being ignorant.

Because that's what staff wanted, a one step system.

I wasn't going to make a comment on this but since it keeps cropping up I will. Sean's system is far better in my opinion. If you read through his recruitment thread, it takes much less time to read and understand compared to this one, that's why it's concise. While being shorter, it is still effective and a new take on an editor recruitment which I would argue is a lot more fair than the generic systems like this one. I actually feel that editors promoted through his system would be more worthy of it than through this one, as well as cutting down the application process largely.

Typed this on mobile real quick, I probably missed something.

Fair enough.  The staff never actually communicated to me what they wanted though so I can’t really argue anything more regarding that point.
