So there I was, sipping on the salty tears of my enemies, when I realized that I needed to do something useful. We have admins, we have mods, we have the odd users who will help out other people, but, and this has been bugging me, we have no user-run organization to help people. So I went ahead and made one.
Say hello to the Angels, a thing I threw together.
Goals
1. The Angels exist to help new users get used to having productive debates with the rest of DebateDotOrg.
2. Educate new people on the rules.
3. Take over the world (Postponed indefinitely)

Sound interesting? Would you like to know more?
Make an app answering the questions below:

1. Why do you want to be an Angel?

2. What qualifications do you have to be an Angel?

3. Lastly, what is a Skype or an alternate real-time group chat utility you can throw together in about five seconds, or the one you use so we can not trip over each other? (if alternate group chat utility, denote it, please)

1. Why do you want to be an Angel?

I always had the fantasy of walking with Victoria's Secret Angel Wings. I believe it adds more charm to my already charming figure.

I always thought that it was debateDotOrgy, but what do I know?
2. Educate new people on the rules.
3. Take over the world (Postponed indefinitely)

[Censored by the DDO Elite] can help with that one.

Sound interesting? Would you like to know more?

Sure why not.
Make an app answering the questions below:

1. Why do you want to be an Angel?

To help DDO and America and stuff. So that I can help people I guess. So that I will have a reason to get more active

2. What qualifications do you have to be an Angel?

I've been on the site for a long-ish time. I've played a lot of mafia in my day when I was in 'Nam

3. Lastly, what is a Skype or an alternate real-time group chat utility you can throw together in about five seconds, or the one you use so we can not trip over each other? (if alternate group chat utility, denote it, please)

It would give me a reason to be more involved on the site and give me a reason to exist.
2. What qualifications do you have to be an Angel?

I've been here long enough to see what the general idea of the site is and also see that there are some help options for new members but not enough to explicitly help them get used to debating on the site.
3. Lastly, what is a Skype or an alternate real-time group chat utility you can throw together in about five seconds, or the one you use so we can not trip over each other? (if alternate group chat utility, denote it, please)

I can use anything (skype,Ventrilo, etc...) but I use discord and teamspeak mainly.

With all due respect, the nihilism there is frightening:

"It would give me a reason to be more involved on the site and give me a reason to exist."

That's like something Jihadi John would have said when he joined ISIS.

Very funny. So funny, in fact, that I coughed out a link.

Your supervisor has reported you for discouraging advertisers to pay for the site's upkeep.

The penalty is forced labor.

Your family will be questioned about their involvement.

The site will remain open under a replacement user.

Oh I thought it was pick one question to answer kinda application.


2. What qualifications do you have to be an Angel


I'm tall, skinny, handsome and have experience in underwear modelling. I used to work for Calvin Klein but got laid off last week because of an incident involving exploding on the set uncontrollably and leaving a couple too many stains on the polar-bear carpet. I also think the narwhal-foreskin couch was damaged a bit and it was my manager's favorite, but the brown stains kinda camouflaged like Egyptian soldiers on a desert battlefield. While this is one of the drawbacks of my stomach, I don't think my explosions would affect my angelical duties, unless they are needed strategically to bombard the enemy. I once farted off a grizzly bear, for instance, and protected about 10 lives that were with me on a camping trip. The only drawback was that they complained about the stink and one kid died of suffocation, but he already had asthma so he wasn't really meant to survive long according to natural selection. To say the least.

and

3. Contact I can use (or you can PM me if you don't want it publicized)

I go on Skype by the name of HillelTheSexy. I know, it's kinda embarrassing, but I was young and tied up to a nearby train-track when I chose that nickname. My friends created a moral dilemna where I have to choose between death and joining Skype, and so in the last seconds, when the Train was approaching me and honking like crazy, I chose to join Skype, it was probably the wrong decision but somehow I felt that I would soon join DDO and become an angel, and so there would be a meaning for my existence.

I am going to do something that could be construed as threatening another member this once, if only because of the troll-tier of his app. Please note that this is sent to his imaginary person he created, and not to the actual user. To quote one of my buddies:
"
You have been denied. Furthermore, agents have been sent to your home to dispose of you permanently.
"
Going over it, we get horribly bad problems.
Okay, this is a group called the Angels, we don't get literal wings and halos and whatnot.
That tale was horrible, and I am not letting you near my carpet if we ever meet.
Your skype does not check out.

Okay, to avoid more drama, what I want to see in any apps:

1. Actual reasons as to why you want to be an Angel (such as wanting to help people, or to be recognized for helping people)
2. Actual reasons as to why you should be considered (outside links to sites where you are a moderator and whatnot are okay, but unctuous flattery towards me works just as well)
3. PMs work, but are clunky beyond relief. Hence, outside communications (which have the added benefit of not being bound by the rules so we can be free of the swear filter). However, if you don't want your contact info publicized, that is understandable.

What if I told you that one doesn't have to be an Angel in order to:
1. Help new users get used to having productive debates with the rest of DebateDotOrg.
2. Educate new people on the rules.
3. Take over the world

Any casual DDOer can do this without belonging to any divine group.

The point is that it's a clear identifier. The fact that the group has a title makes it official-sounding, which makes new users more likely to look at it as a lifeline, and therefore motivates them to seek help via PM.

Makes sense, although my personal experience with this site is that people are eager to welcome new members and offer advice even without request. Maybe I was lucky though, as I don't know the actual statistics of how many new members are greeted and introduced to the site.
