Forumotion IAmA request : Forumotion Staff

Post by Alexander Moore on February 14th 2013, 6:35 pm

Do your jobs really entail just browsing this forum full-time? What other work do you do? Do you own forums of your own? How did you become forumotion staff, what drove you to do it? Do you work from some kind of HQ or do you all work from your homes?

And what about ex-forumotion staff? Where did they go with their lives? (If it's okay sharing).

I just ask because I think the staff could use some recognition and a little catching up would be nice. Maybe they can share a bit about themselves here - something they don't get to do often.

Personally, I've been here since Tristou, Cornelia, and Gizmo were running things here (and Gizmo later became The Godfather). The last time I was here, Cailhem and Typlo were still around. Though, I have no idea what my oldest account was anymore. The oldest I can find is from mid 2008. I could really use some catching up about what's happened.

Later I come and bam, pretty much all the staff have changed. I'm guessing a lot of them either parted with eToxic (the Admins) (I'm guessing Forumotion is still owned by eToxic?) or moved to another job within ForuMotion / ForumActif / eToxic.

I really like Forumotion and perhaps someday, after I've finished college, I'll ask about details from the administration about joining the team (though I'm not sure how to join. eToxic is a French website and France-based company, so I'm not sure if using their site contact form is the right idea). I've been using FM for as long as I can remember and it'd feel a bit suiting to finally join if I had the skillset they're looking for, which I hope to acquire from college and some work experience.

I remember that before FM I tried using GeoCities...*shudders*...glad I got saved from that, and got out of Yahoo in general early on.

I plan on being here pretty actively again, seeing as I'm working on making a new site with the guys at AvacWeb (and learn some more along the way). I just figured I should get to know the staff here too.

I know you're all very busy on this forum though, so I'm not sure if this will get replies or not, which is fine.

And yes, I got the IAmA idea from Reddit. I'm a pretty active Redditor.

Thanks. It's nice to be back.

- Alex

Do you own forums of your own?
I do have forums.

=> Do your jobs really entail just browsing this forum full-time?
No, every staff member has a different role on this forum but we all share a common goal and that is providing support. We try to dedicate as much time as we like, but don't forget we're humans too! Smile

=> What other work do you do? Do you own forums of your own?
Yes, several forums in fact. Most of them are inactive.

=> How did you become forumotion staff, what drove you to do it?
The majority of us here on the support forum are volunteers, myself included. We were all offered a position due to our effort and dedication. I have been a member here since 2008 and I've been on the team since 2011. I enjoy helping people out, so I suppose that motivates me.

--Do your jobs really entail just browsing this forum full-time? What other work do you do?
I answer questions when I can, which is rare, but I also complete Graphics Requests whenever I can, as well. There's more than just browsing in there.

--Do you own forums of your own?
Some of us do, of course. I own a RP forum, which is nothing like how I work on here. It's a completely different world.

--How did you become forumotion staff, what drove you to do it?
I became a staff member by doing graphics requests and proposals whenever I can and doing my best at it. I am not the greatest designer there is, but I'm willing to help as much as I can and I think that is why I got the job. I was driven to work here because I enjoy helping others.

--Do you work from some kind of HQ or do you all work from your homes?
I work from my home--which is from my job, as well, since I work from my home. So both could be considered true, when I am on here from my office. Most of us are volunteer staff, however, and work from home. =)

I hope to see you coming back with us--Leeloo and other staff are all amazing staff members and I know that you will love your experience here with us as we all work together to create a great Support Service for FM users.

I'm going to be annoying and bump this Razz

Typlo is still prodding around in France these day his days, with his girlfriend and all Wink
Cailhem has recently left France with his 'misses',
According to the words of Leeloo, Gizmo has left the company, whilst TGF now regularly visits the ESF. He rarely visited when we had Typlo (as I'm sure you know)
ForuMotion is still apart of E-Toxic, which still owns all of their respective brands including ForumActif and ActivoForum.

E-Toxic is actually ran out of a complex near Nice, France.
If you want job there, hit my PM's up and Ill give you the website you need to look at, but as you know, you need to speak French Wink

Anyways, if you have other questions I've been here since '08 I think, so I'll happily answer them Very Happy
