Are you interested in serving as the Host of a Group? (Done.)

Last edited Fri Dec 9, 2011, 04:49 PM - Edit history (1)

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

UPDATE: We have assigned a number of people to serve as temporary group Hosts during this testing period, and I think we have enough for now. I don't think we are going to assign any more group hosts during the testing period. Thank you to everyone who helped out. Now I will lock this thread.

Note: This is an announcement about Group Hosts, not Forum Hosts.

A number of people have already approached me about serving as hosts in the various groups here on DU3. I think it's great that people are enthusiastic and want to help out. It just so happens that we need your help to test out the functionality.

Since our new software is still in it's testing phase, we are not ready to assign the permanent hosts for any groups. However, we would like to set people up as hosts in various groups so that you all can test out the software and make sure everything works properly. Once the testing period is finished, we are going to wipe out the whole database, including people who have been assigned as hosts.

So, if you want to serve as a TEMPORARY host in any group, here's what you have to do:

1. Make sure you have posted a message in the group where you want to serve as a host. (If you have never posted in the group, I cannot set you up as a host.)

2. Post a reply in this thread telling me which group you would like to host. Include a direct link to your post in the group where you want to serve. I need that link in order to give you host powers.

3. I will only assign ONE temporary host to each group. After that first host has been assigned, then that first host has the power to grant host status to anyone else. So, if a host is already assigned to a group, then you need to contact that host to become a host.

Thanks for your help as we test DU3.

So, if you want to serve as a TEMPORARY host in any group, here's what you have to do:

1. Make sure you have posted a message in the group where you want to serve as a host. (If you have never posted in the group, I cannot set you up as a host.)
did that....

2. Post a reply in this thread telling me which group you would like to host.
did that

Include a direct link to your post in the group where you want to serve. I need that link in order to give you host powers.

did that, I thought....

Here is link to a direct thread I posted, not to a reply I posted, in that forum...errr...group.

Response to Behind the Aegis (Reply #159)

Thu Dec 8, 2011, 04:08 PM

161. Done. By the way...

When we recreated all the Groups on DU3, we dropped the word "Group" in the official title of the Group. So, for example, the "Barack Obama Group" became simply "Barack Obama".

When we dropped the "Group" from "Jewish Group" all we had was "Jewish" which didn't feel right. So I changed it to "Judaism". Now, somehow I doubt you want the group to be narrowly religion-focused, so I'm not sure the name is right.

So... I would like your advice. Just go back to calling it the "Jewish Group"? (This is the solution I chose for the Men's Group.) Or stick with "Judaism"? Or call it something else?

Some help would be appreciated. This has been bugging me ever since I made the change.

Response to Skinner (Reply #161)

Thu Dec 8, 2011, 04:23 PM

162. Hmmm....what an interesting situation.

I don't think "Judaism" will work because, as you said, it sounds as if it is just about religion. The group, as I wrote the mission statement, was to be inclusive of things like anti-Semitism and culture, as well as religion. Hell, look at the first three posts...one is about food, one is Jewish jokes, and the others is about Chanukah (marginally a religious holiday, and the post is nothing more than "best wishes, not even about the history) Hardly "religion" as the primary topic. LOL!

Personally, I say "Jewish group." I think if we call it something else people may not know what it is except for "those in the know." If you would like, I can pose this question in said group and see what others think. Though, I should remind you... two Jews, three opinions! Let me know.

Edit to add a question: Is the "statement of purpose" allowed to be larger or was that a quick thing as y'all set up the board? I guess I am asking if the SOP can be the same as it is on DU2.

163. For all the groups, I am using a "stripped-down" version of the DU2 statement of purpose.

For the Jewish Group, it is this:

"Discuss Judaism's beliefs, share faith experiences, discuss anti-Semitism, post prayer requests, discuss Jewish faith, traditions, religious heroes, holidays, etc."
