Back at Ikonboard now?
« on: February 25, 2003, 05:20:38 pm »
I've gone and gotten myself involved with the support team for Ikonboard again... '<img'>
Why?
Because...
Well...
The management's sorta changing there again, and it looks like it could be for the better this time. So yeah, I'm helping out at iB again, as aggravating as it can be at times. ':p'
Still, it's nice to be back there again, working with some of the old team mates and such. (A lot had left before.)
Should be interesting!
Wish me luck! '<img'>
 
And no, it's not a paying job. It's a volunteer support sorta thing. '<img'>

Good luck!  Hope things stay less stressful this time. ^-^

Thanks!
Heh.
I'm going to try to not get overly involved, in order to avoid the stress there if I can. ':p'

That's the best way to go, I think.  If you show yourself as too keen, or want to get overly involved, people can take advantage of that, and you'll end up doing a lot of work, where others just sit back and enjoy the job title they have.

Indeed.
We've had some problems in the past with coat tail riders. They're not all that fun, really. ':p'
I think the head of the team is working on getting rid of some, at least.

As an update on this, I've been helping develop a skin for the iB skins site. It should be ready soon. I'll post the URL here when the new skin is online. The current skin on that board is pretty fugly. ':p'

There is an iB skins site, but has no skin itself?  That's just crazy talk.  Heh, I wish you luck with it, and make sure you get others involved with it - don't do all the work yourself, letting others just sit by.

We've got a few people working hard on it, so no problems there. Most of what I've contributed are the custom parts of the skin like you'll see at this board's own profile view, user CP, and messenger views. I've also been helping with some of the buttons and making sure the CSS is producing some good effects. Most of the graphics have been done by another user before I got involved with helping out.
There is a skin on the iBSkins site currently, but it's really not all that well done. It's been in need of a redesign for a while now.

Just an update on my Ikonboard staff stuff...
 
I'm currently an iAdmin once again, helping administrate the support forums and the staff that comes along with it. It's a fair bit of effort to handle, but it's fun, and that's what counts. '<img'>
