Due to some internal promotions, the SUPPORT forum is looking for an additional moderator to help out animal_cookie.


http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/9913/serverroom.jpg

We are looking for people who are familiar with Bluelight and its strange ways. You would need to confidently know your way around this wonderful forum, the biggest and best drug harm reduction site on the world wide web. [citation needed]

We don't expect our staff to be on duty 24/7, but we do expect them to check into their forum at least every couple of days. All applicants must be confident & experienced users of forum software (especially vBulletin), and it wouldn't hurt to have experience of wiki software too. Even more important is the ability to answer the same questions every day, in a friendly manner, with a smile on your face. ;)


If you are interested and think you have what it takes, please:


State why you think you'd be a good choice
Let us know your approximate geographical location (or time zone)
Tell us about any technical support experience you have out in the real world (this is not required, but it would help)
Post a link to your favourite xkcd (http://www.xkcd.com/)
Tell us where you can find the Greenlighters Guide


The successful applicant - like all members of staff - will receive a larger PM box, and the opportunity to interact in the staff forums, with a community of nearly 100 other people from all over the world.

Please feel free to ask any questions in this thread or by PM.

All applications to be sent by PM to: animal_cookie, tambourine-man, and felix, by... let's say midday GMT on Saturday 17th March 2012.

Good luck! :)

that image's genesis, starting years ago:


find photo of chaotically wired server (probably from www.darkroastedblend.com)
take the then current BL logo
google translate 'Instruction Manual' into Russian/cyrillic characters
*photoshop*
...
profit



it wasn't a sticker. :D

^I like that one alot too! forever comparing, never evaluating on any external scale. haha just found this and thought it was oddly appropriate:

I'm digging the merch though! Did BL have a sales team?? Haha we should get a group buy going and bulk purchase some decals/clothes.

EDIT: Bluelight lighters would be too prime. especially if they were blue. ;)
