Looking for Volunteers
« on: March 08, 2013, 06:51:38 PM »

Hey all!

With the new show coming to the station, there's more pressure on Wayne and myself throughout the week to put time into some tasks that could be divided out to some dedicated community members to lighten our load and let us put more effort into the actual shows rather than the admin! So, we are looking for:

-Social Media Reps
We need someone, or a few people, to be in charge of posting some tech & geek content to our Twitter, Facebook and Google+. This would simply involve when you find an interesting article on a controversial topic, you link it onto the page Facebook. Or someone tweets something worth reading, retweet it. Won't take more than a few minutes out of your life each week.

-RSS Feed "Monkey"
The skills you need to do this are not particularly advanced, we will provide you with the software and the know-how, and each week after each show you will simply update our RSS feed with the details of our latest podcast and upload it to our server, then BAM! The latest show appears on everyone's iTunes, mobile phones, computers, and is pushed onto the VTW twitter, facebook, front page etc. Takes 5 minutes to do and does a world of good. Plus it will give you an insight into how podcasts work.

As we already have KittenFeatures as our Show X rep, we need someone else to rep for us. This involves listening to each show live at Saturday 2pm GMT, 9am EST and occasionally posting in from your "rotation" (a list of items to copy paste, for example our sponsors, our email address, skype address etc). You would also be charged with keeping the chat flowing in the IRC, and forwarding any messages from the IRC you think the hosts should be aware of directly to us. Time demanding but much fun!

-Other goodness
There's always a call for more audio stings, dropins, creative commons music, show art, emails, call ins, topics you think we should discuss. Even if you don't think you can help out every week, helping out just when you can will do the world of good.

If you're interested in any of the above, please PM me. Feel free to ask questions below about any positions.
