Hello everyone! Your co-founder ElithianFox here with a recruitment journal.



As a dynamic group with admins who each have a life of their own, we regularly have to deal with backlogs of submissions we can't get to in a timely fashion. For this reason, we can always use an extra hand helping us out.

So we are recruiting new contributors!


What's the job of a contributor?


► Your main job will be to vote on submissions. We get an average of 200 submissions every day, and divided by the average amount of admins that are online on a day that is about 40 submissions per person, 30-20 with the new admins. Be prepared to set some time aside to go through them. This takes time, someone with a tight schedule can't keep up this work.
► We don't expect you to be active every day. There's plenty of other admins to take over your absent days or weeks if you go on vacation or take a break, but the days you can be online and have time we do expect some activity. An average of at least 4 days a week of activity is expected.
► You are required to know the rules and submission guidelines. If you want to be sure, we'll explain them briefly to you upon inviting.
► You are capable of commenting on a declined submission to tell the user why it was declined.
► You have an open personality and are willing to politely help out members with questions.

To be an admin you don't have to be online or even active every day, you don't have to upload art to the group or even draw OCs, and you can even be an admin if you're not an artist at all. What counts is your ability and dedication.


As a contributor, you do get some perks!


► Your own submissions to the group are instantly accepted and you get extra submissions per week.
► You get to have a say in potential upcoming group events and changes, or even suggest them yourself.
► You can suggest journals and polls to be posted and seen by 16 000+ members.
▶︎ You get access to our exclusive OC-Tea employee Discord server, where you can get to know your colleagues well and discuss new ideas for the group.



Interested? Great! To apply to become a contributor, all you have to do is fill in the following template and either comment it on this journal or send it as a note to the group.

Do you have any experience with running a group? Explain your experience:
How often can you be active in the group on an average week? How many days per week?:
Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?: [If you're not completely familiar with them we can still help you out with that later]
Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
Anything else you'd like to mention that you think is relevant?:


These applications will close on the 1st of November, after which we will review them and choose the people who seem most capable of joining our team. Unlike the last time, there is no set number of new admins we're looking for. If we get one interesting application, we'll add one new contributor, if we get ten, we add ten new contributors. We can absolutely use any help we can get!


Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone who's interested in applying!

► Do you have any experience with running a group? Explain your experience:
I ran a group on my old account for a while, so I am familiar with the 'backstage' stuff in groups. 
► How often can you be active in the group on an average week? How many days per week?:
I can, at the very least, set aside time every day to look at submissions. I'm mostly active at night. And as my work schedule changes weekly, I don't have set days or times that I know I will be able to be on during the day.
► Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?: [If you're not completely familiar with them we can still help you out with that later]
Yes! I like to read the rules and guidelines before joining a group, and then usually read them again when I go to submit anything.
► Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
Of course! c:
► Anything else you'd like to mention that you think is relevant?:
Nothing I can think of.

I active everyday. And spend my time in DA about 5 to 8 hours a day. But in Saturday, Sunday, and Monday I only active for 2~3 hours.

► Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?
Well of course. Right after I first join here and totally understand it!

► Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
Totally dedicated. Since I spend a lot o time in DA so I 100% ready to spend my time and effort :la:

I currently am a part of the SmARTees staff, and have been for some years (previously on my old account), as well as I used to be a part of the Art-Zone team, and several other groups as well. Since moving accounts, however, I am now only part of the SmARTees team.
► How often can you be active in the group on an average week? How many days per week?
I don't work, and rarely leave the house due to disability, so unless I'm in the middle of a blackout or in hospital, I will be online at all times I am awake, every day.
► Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?: Yes
► Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
I like to occupy my time with admin work, which is why I run several of my own Discord servers on top of everything else I do, so I am 100% committed and willing to spend my time helping with running the group.
► Anything else you'd like to mention that you think is relevant?
As mentioned above, I am disabled, and this can sometimes lead to sudden disappearances due to emergency appointments and hospital stays, so I won't always be able to give prior notice to these absences, however, I will always do my best to explain myself after the fact and make up for lost time.

► Do you have any experience with running a group? 
To be honest, not yet, but I do want to start 'small' so I can get the gist of it ~ 
► How often can you be active in the group in an average week? How many days per week?
I'll say about 5-7 days per week usually, I am on DeviantArt about every day unless I have no access to internet ^-^ 
(Fun fact? I had to google English grammar for the use of everyday vs every day... I wonder if they teach it in schools) 
► Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?:
Yes (skimmed through the journal before since most rules/submission guidelines are quite self-explanatory, now is currently re-reading...o3o) 
► Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
Yes~ considering I tend to dedicate when I choose to
► Anything else you'd like to mention that you think is relevant?
I would not be as formal when explaining why the art is declined... of course, I would clarify the reason, but overly formal may come off as a rejecting tone? I might be scrutinizing too much but I want to be as friendly as possible so ppl would feel more accepted and welcomed  -Edit: (I swear it sounded less cheesy in my head...)

► Do you have any experience with running a group? Explain your experience
Yes! I helped run two RP groups on my old account. One, a group for beginners to help them get their feet wet in the rp world, and the other was a little more advanced. I also helped mod a successful mental health support group on my old account.

► How often can you be active in the group on an average week? How many days per week?
6-7 days. The times I'm available each day changes with my work schedule, but I have enough downtime each day to get stuff done. If something comes up irl that would cause me to be inactive, you'd defo be given a heads up beforehand.

► Do you know our rules and submission guidelines?:
Yes! I am aware of and know the rules ~ 

► Are you willing to dedicate your time to this group, knowing that it will take you time and effort?:
I know that there's a bit of a work load, but I think your expectations a reasonable. Sooo, yeah. I'm willing to put in the effort, comment on subs to explain why they're rejected if need be, etc. etc.

► Anything else you'd like to mention that you think is relevant?
Umm, not really! Just that I think it'd be pretty stellar to help out lol. I wish you guys luck in your hunt for admins!

I have no past experience with running a group.
I am a stay at home mom, so I have quite a bit of free time.  I'd say I could pop in every day in the morning to every other day as long as we're in town that week.  which we usually are.  I'm a pretty dedicated sort of person, when I am interested in something.
I remember the rules and guidelines for the most part, but it isn't difficult to go reread them just to re-familiarize myself with them.
Since I have a lot of free time I don't see a problem with putting time and effort into the job.  Also, I wouldn't want to waste my time or your time applying if I thought I couldn't handle it.
I really enjoy seeing the characters people come up with! :) I get along with most anyone.

I don't have any experience in any groups, but I'd like this to be my first experience and I'd like to become more involved and get to know the other admins. I do check, comment and favorite deviant art content in this group and many others very frequently. I'm familiar with the OC Tea rules, except maybe one or two rules. I work a night shift job mostly, so I have plenty of contribute and work towards the group. I'd like to add that I've been in personal groups before with friends of mine that's not on deviant art, that is very similar to this. It's similar in the way where we would meet on discord and discuss ideas for groups and worked on group projects together. I hope I have a chance to join the admins and if not, then I'm still very grateful to be in this group.
