TripSit Staff Application

We are always looking for help! If you want to apply, please read over the following and email admin@tripsit.me or a mod/admin with a completed application.

Open Position

  • TripSitter

Required Qualifications

We want people who love TripSit, want to see and contribute to its growth, and be part of our success. We require regular presence in the the TripSit channels and a willingness to help out with other staff on projects. We look for people who bring something new to the TripSit team and have ideas and skills to help us improve our community. Staff members possess the ability to separate personal from professional interactions with users. Finally, a basic knowledge of drugs and how they interact with other drugs and mental conditions is higly preferred.

Desirable Qualifications

Professional experience/qualifications in anything technical and computer science, including programming and webdevelopment. Professional experience/qualifications in anything biology, chemistry, medicine, pharmacology etc. Professional experience/qualifications in anything media, audio/visual editing, graphic design, or radio.

Tripsitter Duties

Tripsitters are the backbone of our network. Without their selfless efforts we would not be here today. Each of us have stepped up in the #tripsit room to help people and it's a rite of passage to advance to other positions in the network. As such we have fairly high expectations of our tripsitters and expect the best out of them.

You will continue to be an active, responsible trip sitter in the #tripsit channel. After recieving the proper flags, you will recieve !tripsit and ~tripsit notifications and are should respond whenever possible. Checkout How_To_Tripsit_Online for tips, and never be afraid to defer a question to another member of the team by asking in #teamtripsit or even to use the '~tripsit user' command yourself to let people know a user needs further help. When the encounter is over you must send a notify to tripbot detailing how it went. You must send an notify for EACH and EVERY encounter. There is a no tolerance policy for trolling and sarcasm, you're free to ~quiet <user> whenever you feel they cross the line. Have them come to a staff channel to discuss why before unquieting them.
