    BDRP Community Helper Updates!

    1. After listening to member requests for more feedback on their writing in our last site survey, our staff and Community Helper team have been hard at work revamping The Writer's Workshop forum. We now have spaces for general feedback requests as well as specific feedback requests, where members can request assistance from our community using a list of topics.
    2. Our Writing Support Community Helpers have released a new guide for members to utilize! The guide focuses on all things BDSM and includes helpful links to more information on the lifestyle.

    3. We are also looking for new Community Helpers! Please check the tabbed sections below if you are interested in joining our wonderful Community Helpers team. Applications will remain open until the positions needed are filled. Please see the application tabs in each area for more information on where you should submit your applications. Thanks!

    Seeking Community Helpers!
    • Q: Who are the Community Helpers?
      Community Helpers are volunteers who assist the staff with a wide range of tasks. Some help run our social media, help with events and matchmaking, create guides, or create site graphics. They also help foster a fun, welcoming place for all members to enjoy. All Community Helpers are members who simply want to give back to our community. In addition to having their own color on site to honor them, the Community Helpers have an extra forum on the site for their work.

      Q: How involved should the Community Helpers be?
      It depends on the position of the Community Helper. Those helping with social media are expected to be active on their respective site every three to five days. Those assisting with Writing Support work together to post a guide about once a month and are active at least once a week on the Writer's Workshop forum. Matchmakers need to be active on-site at least every couple days for matchmaking. The Images Team works closely with the events and showcases, so their activity level varies.

      Q: What else will I be expected to do in addition to my Community Helper position?
      We often ask our Community Helpers to assist us with welcoming new members, participating in site events, and searching for art and writing showcases to display on various social media. They should also be active in the discussions that take place in our Community Helper forum.

    Thanks for the direct here, It's appreciated, but i don't think i can realistically take on a role with a level of responsibility and commitment as im usually insanely flat out all the time with work commitments. Im probably best as an "ask on need" basis, if thats ok :3

    Hey Amber_Lou! Welcome to the site!

    Thanks for your honesty. This was a general tag to all members to see if anyone on our site is interested in joining the CHs, as well as to showcase our improved forum! :) You’ll receive notifications like the one that directed you here from time to time, but they’re tagging the entire member base.
