The stuff posted here is meant to be a role in GP; I'd ask if you're considering signing on, please take into mind the time the position would take. I'll never ask someone to give me more than they can give, but if you'd like to help with something, please don't disappear on me or what the role needs of you. I'll be placing my trust in you to help me make this site and community all the better, and the goal would be for me to stop paying more than high level attention to whatever you're helping with. If you can't dedicate time (this doesn't mean set hours or anything silly), that's not a big deal! Being on GP and having fun is all I want from people. If you're active on the general forums, playing/running games, adding items to the library, you're already doing a ton for the site. If you're telling your friends, people online, at your FLGS, or cons about GP, you're doing a ton for GP.
But if you do want to dedicate some energy to GP:
- Designers: If you have experience with graphic design (mainly web design), I'd love your feedback. No, I'm not asking for free work. If you have good ideas and can do work, I'll try to find money to pay you. Otherwise, as I continue to work on designs and build mocks, I needs feedback from experienced people who know both design and gaming to help me figure stuff out. If you'd like to join in the design of GP, I'd welcome new ideas/modifications. But this is more than just giving me an idea and bouncing; this would be an active conversation, taking the time it takes.
- Community Managers: I'd love to get people to help me grow the general community on GP, mainly through starting up new threads. This means thinking of interesting threads to get people involved, be it from general geek news, interesting Kickstarters, specific news from RPGs, board games, video games, etc. It'd be as much about coming up with threads as keeping threads appropriately alive and figuring out how often to post threads to keep the community going. Hopefully, this leads to organic community growth, and you'd mostly just be responsible for making sure people aren't getting rowdy.
- Guides Manager: GP has had a guides section for a while, and we keep talking about filling it. I know how I'd like the guides section organized, but I need help with people willing to take the lead on picking guides to work on, getting people moving to building guides, and making sure guides are structured in the most useful way possible. If we get guides going, I'll change it from a forum to a more wiki style section of the site.
- Programming help: GP is currently written in PHP/MySQL/MongoDB, and is moving to a Angular front end with a PHP/Mongo API. If you have experience with these languages, I could always use sounding boards, and there are projects you could help me develop or at least structure (like I haven't had time to learn RSS structures, and how they'd best work with GP, like a game feed, forum feeds for games, etc).
- Social Outreach: I try to put up tweets when a game is created and add a post to Facebook. I've also tried to do it for interesting threads, without much luck, and I haven't even tried to get onto stuff like Reddit yet. With a few other people, I wouldn't miss Facebook posts, and be able to get other social means moving. Eventually, I'll have code to auto tweet/FB, but I've never been a fan of automated social media; it doesn't feel real.
