Something Great Is Coming... and We Want You!

Hello Nine Lives and happy 2017 to you all! It’s a new week, a new month, a new year! For so many, January is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings. For us, it’s also a time of celebration. A few years ago, we tried something new when Nine Lives was first launched and now, January has become our ultimate boogie time.

Nine Lives’ 3rd anniversary is January 24!! Can you believe it? We’re a toddler! We have a lot that’ll be coming at you over the next few days as we roll out our challenges and changes to go along with our upcoming 3rd anniversary. Ikkleosu has something special for the graphics artists she’s going to drop shortly and Subs is getting our challenge announcement together based off of the results from the poll we’ve had up the last couple of weeks.

What I wanted to do is pick up where we left off with our amazing fundraiser results and talk about the growth of the site. We have plans, you guys. Plans that are definitely moving forward, but in order to make that happen, we’ve got to make some changes to the archive. The site as it is has enough traffic and daily maintenance to keep myself, Ikkles & Subs busy for the rest of our lives, and that’s before we even get into things like MOTM, fanfic challenges and any other events. If we’re going to grow, we need more help behind the scenes here.

Basically, we’re hiring!

A few things for you to know: nobody on the Nine Lives staff is paid. These are all volunteer positions and some of them will require more time and attention than others. General active participation on the Nine Lives Archive, either as a writer or reviewer, is required to be considered. These are the positions we have currently available:

  • Challenge Moderator: Will assist the Nine Lives admin team with the planning, scheduling, organization and advertising of Nine Lives’ fanfic/art/video challenges. May also be called upon to assist in running behind the scenes on challenge Upload and Posting days. Will be required to attend regular staff meetings. 2017 challenges are scheduled for the following months: January, February, April, June, July, August, November.

    • Number of spots open: 2-3

  • Chat Moderator: Will be part of the Nine lives Chat team under meeshie. Chat moderators plan, schedule and run the monthly Writers Chats, as well as any other chat events that may occur. Chat mods enforce the rules during Writers Chats and issue warnings/bans as needed as well as keeping the chat discussions on topic. Regular attendance at the monthly Writers Chats is required.

    • Number of spots open: 1
