== 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 notifications and should respond whenever possible. Checkout [[How_To_Tripsit_Online|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.
You can also use the ~timeout command to give users a 10 minute timeout in other channels, to assist in moderating the network.
