Looking for volunteer adminsFollow

We're looking for more volunteer admins here for Allakhazam! Specifically we are looking for people who have contributed to the site or are current contributers.

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.

We're still looking for more volunteer admins to help us out with the site. Remember that this site is 100% user driven, no ZAM involvement other than account support and very small bug fixes here and there. Without volunteers working on the site, it won't be updated. This is the reason why we need people to actively be a part of our admin team. User input is great but we need admins to process that information and update the site. You don't even have to actively play Everquest, most of what we do is basically just data entry type work. If you are interested, please let me know.

People who actively contribute to the site are first in line.

" We also just recently added the Original tag for classic items, we need people to help tag all classic items."

Where can I get a list of these classic items? I am currently going through the older zones and doing the Hunter tasks. I could run the item collector. But if I had a list, maybe I could go hunt for certain things.

I only play around 5-10 hours a week these days. I have two small kids now so I cannot commit as an admin but I will start using the item collector.

Great job keeping the site running. I have been a member for many many years.

You can go through the old zones and look at the items tab on each zone and that will give you an idea on all the old world items.

The Planes


The expansion tag will be right under where it says the last time the item was updated. For example Updated: Thu Oct 9th, 2008 and right under that should be an expansion tag. If not, then that item hasn't been tagged yet. There are thousands of Original to Velious items we haven't tagged yet. Running the item collector on those items will help get them updated if any information has changed on them over the years. However it takes an admin to tag the items for the expansion they came out in.

If the sticky is up, the opportunity remains.

Posting here makes sense, as does personal messaging Gidono.

If you PM me I will get it, but I am very sporadic here so not the best bet for a speedy reply.
