Curious about the many different things that go on behind the scenes to deliver the full community experience? Here’s a brief overview of the things we do. Most of the admins and staffers are active in several of these areas, coordinating tasks to give Amassment its direction and make the community a cohesive whole at any time of the year.

Communications Area

The Communcations Area aims to expand Amassment off-site, especially via social media, in hopes that more people learn about shrines and join the community. Creativity and presentation play a large part in getting the right content to the right audience. Responsibilities include:

  • discussing different avenues
  • brainstorming and planning social media content
  • maintaining social media accounts
  • interacting with off-site visitors

Directory Area

The Directory Area concerns itself with the maintenance of our domain. Its primary goal is to keep everything up-to-date, most of all the shrine directory. Organization and information need to facilitate navigating Amassment as a member and visitor. Responsibilities include:

  • adding new shrines to the directory
  • performing regular link checks
  • informing the community about directory activity
  • running the Shrine Spotlight program

Events Area

The Events Area revolves around one of Amassment’s biggest attractions: community events. Observing trends, listening to what members want and gauging member activity over the year are essential to the coordination and success of any planned events. Responsibilities include:

  • brainstorming, planning, scheduling and executing events
  • driving the making of shrines through Challenges and Marathons
  • organizing shrine-related or community-fostering Activities
  • promoting event participation via communication

Forum Area

The Forum Area overlooks day-to-day member relations and interactions at the busiest part of our community. The goal is to promote a fun atmosphere, to make members feel welcome and help them find what they need, and to drive interaction and activity, especially by way of discussions. Responsibilities include:

  • moderating and organizing the forums
  • posting the Monthly Rewind
  • keeping community stickies up-to-date
  • starting regular discussions

Administrators The people behind the scenes

Admins are responsible for community direction and cohesion. They lead the different areas of Amassment, coming up with new ideas, gauging what the community wants or needs and ensuring that plans come to fruition.
