Planet Elder Scrolls looking for new Database Admin

Hello all!

With my many projects and commitments going on right now, I came to the difficult decision that it is time for me to step down from my position as Database Administrator and Comment Moderator at Planet Elder Scrolls.

As such, there is an open position (perhaps even two...I had a large job description!)

Being part of the staff at PES is entirely voluntary; there is no pay but neither are there strict demands. We do it because we love contributing to the TES community!

The duties needed are fairly straight forward. First of all, you will be the first to download all new mods submitted for hosting. You will need to check each of the mods for a few essential properties: no viruses, all files are present, readme included, no bad GMSTs, no excess of dirty references, etc. Then you will either approve the mod for download, or inform the author of why it can't be approved and how to fix it. It isn't very difficult, nor is it incredibly time consuming, but it is interesting. Then there is the task of moderating comments. This job varies by the person. Quatloos/Lord Devil had the ability to provide detailed feedback on most mods, as well as keep the comments in line. I focused more on simply ensuring that votes were fair and justified and comments were not overly inappropriate.

I guarantee that you will experience a whole new side to Morrowind modding that you've not seen before! You will a have new understanding of how many mods really are created that are never seen, and have a new appreciation for those modders who support their works and are proud of what they have created.

So what if you're hesitant that you won't be able to fulfill the job duties? No problem! I am staying on the staff as a sort of trainer or consultant. I will show you exactly how to take care of everything, and usually be on hand to help you out with your new job! We really do have some amazing resources, and a wonderful staff as a whole!

So do you want to learn more about it?

PM me either here or at GHF...or jump right to the gun and contact APY (make sure you select APY in the downloads.)


It's been a lot of fun, I have enjoyed every bit of it. But I am also quit excited to see my replacement get the same pleasure I've had as I move on to the next chapter!

Hell yeah! I'd LOVE to moderate at PES! That would be my first choice for somewhere to donate my time. Sign me up if it's not filled and you don't think I'm too wacky. I think I would be more of a Quatloos than a Fligg. I loved his/her comments (it was a him in the end, huh?)

Nope, a "her" (R.I.P.).

Heh. Don't worry about it. I've made myself known. That's probably what will work against me. Haha.

Thanks Mikey. I just wish Fligg would hurry up. And I would be only a Morrowind Database admin. My computer cannot nearly handle OB.

I still offer to help. I'd be happy to take on Oblivion section if my master Chazz doesn't want it. I'm going to play that soon and it would be great to get first look at all the new mods XD

I'm still waiting to hear back from APY.  He's a pretty busy fellow at times, and it often takes him a while to respond.

There were altogether 5 volunteers.  I personally think that there's enough for all of you to do, but it's up to APY.  

I'll let you all know when I learn anything new.  Until then, enjoy the suspense!

I used to smuggle a torch under my pillow on Christmas eve, because 'Santa' would leave his sack on my bed. Bloody pervert!

Mum used to get mad and take it away, halfway through the night. Therefore, I had a 'reserve' torch under the mattress. How's that for hating suspense?

Congratulations Floydian!!  :hoorah: You're the new Dark lord of the Sith. I don't know who Greytroll is. Too bad Lady Godiva wasn't made a Sith Lord. But then again, I don't think she would have enough time to patrol the deep recesses of Planet Geriatric Scrolls.
Here's a hug to Floydian.  :hug:
