Social Media Contributor
As Bulbagarden continues to work on ways to interact with our users across the internet, we are revamping our social media efforts. Because of this, we’re looking to hire a few dedicated social media editors. What we’re looking for is people who are passionate about the project as well as looking to interact with Pokemon fans across the internet. As we’ve gotten Bulbacast off the ground, we are looking to make a massive push towards video content. Which means we need designers for graphics and thumbnails as well as editors.
You may be writing or working for different Bulbagarden social media platforms, which include:
Bulbagarden is also looking for new Staff Artists that can do one or more of the following for the forums and social media channels:
- Make Pokémon related art
- Make graphic art (e.g. banners, image manipulations, etc.)
- Make forum skins
Writers are responsible for writing and publishing news articles in a timely manner. News stories to be written will be coordinated via Discord.
Translators are responsible for assisting writers in writing articles based on Japanese sources. This typically involves finding and translating relevant information from provided Japanese language articles. Content to be translated will be coordinated via Discord.
As a moderator of Bulbagarden Forums, your job will, in general, consist of:
- Viewing threads in your section and reporting problematic posts for staff discussion
- Discussing and acting on reports from your own section through PMs, warnings, or other appropriate methods
- Managing your section by performing tasks such as deleting posts, moving threads, and banning spambots
- Brainstorming ideas to increase traffic, activity, and quality discussion in your section
- Engaging with users and responding to questions when you feel comfortable doing so
- Participating in discussion about other sections, the forums as a whole, and off-forum projects with all other Bulbagarden staff members
- Any other section-specific tasks listed in the application forms
