Building a World(s) Class Community
Worlds' Community Leaders are selected volunteer members who are trained to work with Worlds staff to help build the online Worlds community. You will recognize our Community Leaders online by their special yellow nametag and the word HOST- before their name.
Communities are all about people. At Worlds, we view the fundamentals of community to be communication, relationships, camaraderie, commitment, contribution and commerce. Building community is like throwing a party. Worlds Community Leaders are the hosts, and the members are the guests. If you’re walking into a room of people you don’t know, you’re a little nervous and uneasy. You want a human to meet you at the door, greet you, introduce you around, make you feel at home. That’s the role of the Community Leaders.
Our Community Leaders are there for our members:
Our policy on behavior is one of inclusion and persuasion, rather than exclusion and punishment. For this reason, the Community Leaders are charged with helping to engage problem members and draw them into the Community. When necessary, the Community Leaders will be asked to identify ongoing unacceptable behavior (as defined by our Community Guidelines) to the Community Director for further action. We ask that all our members cooperate with our Community Leaders.
If you are interested in more information about becoming a Community Leader, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may fill out our Community Leaders Application form. You will be asked for information about yourself, for scheduling preferences, and for information relevant to accounting. You will be notified of acceptance soon thereafter, depending on available openings.
