We're looking for more volunteer admins here for Allakhazam!
What does a volunteer admin do?
What we do as volunteer admins is help gather information and enter it into the site via quest, npc, items, tradeskills , etc.. We do this by either gathering information in game, researching information or getting information from players either in game or here on the site.
How often would I be required to help?
There isn't a set time that you have to help out. You will be volunteering your time to help out. However we are looking for people who will actively help us out.
Just to give you the scope of how far we are behind in gathering information, we have over 7700 items in our database that has no information attached to them.
What information is the site lacking?
Currently we lack information on the Empires of Kunark expansion, The Broken Mirror and The Darkened Sea. Specifically we are looking to work on Empires of Kunark until we get a majority of the expansion done and then go back and work on those previous expansions. We also just recently added the Original tag for classic items, we need people to help tag all classic items.
Also we want to build a wiki section for progression servers. There are certain things about progression servers that are different than how content used to be. We are looking at providing information on those differences. Such as NPC's with MotM buffs. Agent of Change raid information along with how zones are set up specifically for those raids. Progression server only recipes and the list goes on.
Why can't your current admins help take care of all this?
We don't have enough active admins to help us get all of this information we need in the time we need it done. There is only a handful of us right now that actively provide information for Everquest. Some of us provide input almost daily, some only once a week. I am currently unemployed and that is why I can provide so much time to the site, however that will change soon as I will be going back to work soon so my time will be greatly reduced working on the site.
In order to get the information we need, we need a large team of active volunteers. We get quite a bit of input from players posting here on the site and right now that is helping us out greatly and we appreciate it. However we need admins also to help research information and play in game to extract information. There is a ton of work to be done here on the site and we just don't have the people to make sure it gets taken care of.
How do I sign up to be a volunteer admin?
You can post a reply here or you can PM me if you are interested.
