Things to consider before applying


Activity
How active are you on dA? Are you on the site nearly every day? We need someone that is around quite often. To begin with at least, you will only be responsible for one day of the week; however, you may be needed to cover other team members if they cannot do their day due to feeling unwell, going away, and so on.
Also, how involved are you within the dA community? We're ideally looking for someone that has a passion for the community and likes to get involved.

Personality
Personality matters. You will need to have a good attitude towards deviants you interact with. A friendly and helpful nature is a must. You also need to be able to handle any frustrations you encounter with a positive attitude. It is quite often that people will ask you questions that are in plain sight. Additionally, people can be occasionally rude about things; you need to be able to respond to them politely.
It's important to remember though that personality isn't just based on what has been mentioned above, so please try and think of other things about yourself that might be beneficial to us when applying!

What's involved & your responsibilities


Days Available
Currently we're looking for somebody who is free to do birthday duties on Saturdays. Please do NOT apply if you're unavailable for this day.

Handling Notes
On average, we receive around 25 notes a day, but sometimes this can be slightly more or less. Most of these notes consist of adding people's birthdays to our database, and a few are made up of questions usually regarding how to add a birthday badge or problems with it. Sometimes you'll have notes requesting a removal from our database. You will be responsible for handling all notes on your set day.

Birthday Greetings
You'll visit the profile pages of all the deviants that are listed on our database and leave them their birthday greeting for the day you're responsible for.

Skype
Please be advised that we use Skype to keep in touch with each other, so if you do get through we will be asking for your Skype username so that we can add you to the birthdays chat group.

How to apply
If you have considered all of these things above carefully and believe that you would make a nice addition to our team, please complete the survey at:
www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LZJCX…

What happens next?

We'll be leaving applications open for three weeks, so we'll need to have your submission in by June 25th. We'll then spend the next few days going over the responses, and consider who we'll be welcoming aboard. We should have made a decision by July, so the week before then we'll have contacted some applicants further. If you haven't been contacted by us, please assume that we have already found who we are looking for. However, please don't be discouraged from applying for future team member positions. Although you may not be selected, you could have been our second or third choice, and we will hold onto your responses, just in case! (Note: KoudelkaW didn't get in the first time she applied either!)

We're entirely grateful for anyone that is willing to offer a little of their time towards the *birthdays project, so a big thank you in advance for anyone that sends us an application.

Please welcome our new member! (Plus an apology)

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 4, 2017, 3:39 PM


Hi everybody!

So as you know we were looking for two new members to join our team. Unfortunately I completely got my wires crossed and posted the wrong day up ^^; I put Thursdays and Sundays, but the actual day that was free was Tuesdays, not Thursdays. So I'd like to apologise to everybody who applied just for the Thursday position. (I will be putting up a new survey for Tuesdays in a few minutes)

That being said, we went through the applications and our new member is :iconviamie: :clap:

Problem With Birthday Badges

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 11, 2017, 10:16 AM


As you may have seen, deviantART has recently switched to https.  As a result of this change, some images are not showing up on deviantART profiles.  One of the things affected by this change is our Birthday Badges.

We are aware of this issue and are working to resolve it.  So just hang tight and hopefully Birthday Badges will be showing up again soon!

Thank you!

Hi all

As I'm sure many of you have noticed, the birthdays website is currently down and birthday badges are not working.

We're in contact with :iconelectricnet: (our wonderful database creator) who will be investigating the problem.

Until the database is back up, I'm afraid we will be unable to send out birthday greetings, as well as make any edits to the database.

We're sorry for the inconvenience and thank you all for your patience.
