What being part of GosuCrew means/requires?
If you only have the ability to put in a few hours per week to help out with coverage, we can aid you in your development as a content creator. For those with the time and talent to make a significant impact straight away, there is equally the chance to make a name for yourself in one of the fastest-growing media areas globally. While the majority of the GG.net crew members work on voluntary basis, the industry is growing rapidly and our site is the perfect place to begin your journey within it. You will be working with your crew leader closely to coordinate tasks, but most of the time you will set your own tempo, and have the freedom to discover just how far you can go.
Take initiative and assign tasks to yourself: we love people who don’t need to be babysat and ordered around. If you want to write an article about an event – or if you want to help with the ticker by taking care of match data, go for it!
Use Skype and crew forums to communicate with the crew: our team is online most of the time, busy not having lives at all…
What we’re looking for:
We’re currently looking for individuals interested in contributing to our coverage section. Below you will find an outline of your responsibilities as part of the coverage crew.
1. Handling the matchticker (results, drafts, schedule etc.)
What the members part of the coverage crew do is updating our matchticker with dates/times of upcoming matches, update results and brackets, and adding drafts to our match pages. Other related tasks are updating rosters and streams.
In order to do this, you will be working with our tournament platform where we register and keep track of events. Put simply, you will be using the information in our database as well as adding to it, but there is no need to know anything about databases or web programming. The tasks consist of selecting names from drop lists and entering dates/times/names. Mostly it would require you to watch and follow games played in order to find the results and drafts. You would also need to know a little bit about the competitive scene in order to be familiar with the teams and players.
2. Handling VODs
Adding VODS to our database (linking from YouTube, Twitch etc). In order to do this, you will be working with our tournament platform where we register and keep track of VODS
Our community also needs some managing, as even within the best groups there are always people violating the codes of conduct by bad-mouthing, spamming or advertising at our forums and our comment sections. Moderators are also around to help stimulate discussion about various topics.
