Message from Reinhard Wolff in MacGuyver - Skills & Academics #general
@Reinhard Wolff Okay, so here’s what I envision for this. We advertise on the main server that we’re looking for “hosts” or subject matter experts in each of the main skill areas. These people will be moderators on this server. Preferably, the hosts will be committed to posting a short blurb a couple times a week in their host channel (For example, how a fuel pump works, how to plant a crop, how to build a fire, etc.). Will try to keep the channels clutter-free so guys can ask questions (Like when Koba’s alternator died on him).
The reason for the idea is that I’ve noticed, especially with the younger guys, most of them seem to lack practical skills. I feel like good nationalists should be able to handle themselves in the real world and not just in theory and abstraction.
Sounds good. I'll let you take the lead on this. Let me know what I can do to help. @Deleted User
@Reinhard Wolff If I type up a sort of ad, can you or one of the admins in the main server post it for me so everyone can see it?
Yeah, sure thing.
Lemme work up an ad
I did one but it was too long. Will abbreviate it
The ad would look something like this. I’d like it posted to @everyone in the #helpwanted channel of the main server. Please feel free to tweak it as you like.
*It’s time to start reequipping our people with the manly, applied skills that the baby boomers abandoned in favor of paying other people to do their work for them.
To that end, we are starting an IE-exclusive practical skills server.
The purpose is to provide IE members with a medium to (1) learn about practical skills and (2) ask questions and get quick answers.
To that end, we are looking for subject-matter “experts” in the fields listed below to act as moderators (“hosts”) on the new server.
Hosts will be expected to (1) guide conversations in their respective fields, (2) provide quick answers to questions posed by IE members, and (3) post a weekly blurb or two in their field of expertise.
Currently, the fields we are looking for are: carpentry, electrical, farming/gardening, mechanics, first aid/first responder, and outdoorsmanship.
If you have experience in these fields, and are interested in being a moderator on the new server, please DM @Uilliam Cionnaoith – MD.*
Let me know what you want me to do with this server.
Can you post the ad @everyone help wanted on main server? Good way to get subject matter experts and gauge interest at the same time
I can just do an announcement.
Yeah that's perfecr
If you do announcement maybe add cooking. Guys should learn how to cook. That's one thing I definitely can't do
Awesome. Thanks much.
Curious to see how many hits we get back.
Hawk in the.... Server
Hey brother. Can you see the conversations above?
Back to June 10
Great. Have a look and hang out. May take a while to get our SMEs (subject matter experts) all together
It's all good brother.
Then I'll give you all mod permissions
