We are recruiting!

By Rich Stone,
As you probably know, maintaining TrueTrophies' game and trophy information, running community events, and keeping the forums clean and the leaderboards free from cheaters are tasks that are handled by small teams of TrueTrophies community volunteers.

We are now looking for new recruits to for many of our teams: Community Events, Moderation, Investigations and Game Information. Below, you can find a summary of what being a member of these teams involves, and how you can apply to join them if you'd like to help out.

Community Events

The Community Events Team co-ordinates with the TrueAchievements Community Events Team to devise and run all of the events we run on the sites - such as GTTSC, Warboats and Leap Frog. As well as discussing new events, they work on tweaking the rules to keep our regular events fresh, and also monitor the forums when the events go live to spot any issues (spoiler - there's always a few issues!).

If you would like to apply for this team, please send a PM to TrueTrophy with some information about yourself, why you would like to join this team, and what your favourite events have been so far.

Investigations

This team is managed by the TrueTrophies Investigations Manager, and the membership of this team is kept a secret.

The TrueTrophies Investigations Team is responsible for removing trophy cheaters from statistic calculations and leaderboards. Cheaters ruin the site for everyone by deflating TT ratios with false trophies, which directly affect leaderboard standings. The team uses a number of detective-like methods to determine if someone has cheated trophies in a game. When an investigator finishes their investigation, they will present the specific trophies cheated and supporting evidence to the accused, who will then provide a defense. The team will then vote guilty or not guilty, and a loss of tracking privileges will occur if the accused is found guilty. It is imperative that all team members must remain anonymous. You will not be permitted to reveal your or anyone else on the team's identity to anyone on the site, including other staff with the exception of site admins.

If you would like to apply for this team, please read the TT cheat policy found here: Cheat Policy before sending answers to the following questions in a PM to TrueTrophy:

Moderation

The Moderation Team is in charge of making sure our community follows the Site forum and posting policies. This ensures TrueTrophies is a safe and welcoming place for all of our users.

If you would like to apply for this team, please send a PM to TrueTrophy with some information about yourself and why you would like to join this team.

Note: We'll be looking for active members of the forum that show maturity in their posts.

Game Information

The Game Information Team is responsible for maintaining pretty much all aspects of game information. This includes things like:
  • Adding information to all games and DLC packs that scan to the site
  • Adding and editing trophy flags
  • Maintaining Series, Company information, and other site metadata related to Game Info
The work the GI team do is very important for the site, and integrates into almost all aspects of the community. If this excites you, and you work well with others then please send an application to Shadow_Kisuragi via a private message.

Here are the application questions:

Important Information

Please note that all of these positions are volunteer roles and are not paid positions. Communication for each of the teams is normally done via discord, so you will need a discord account if you are successful in your application.

Good luck to everyone that applies, and thank you for wanting to make the community even better!
