Running Tokotas is a very demanding and time consuming responsibility. Often, it will be stressful, taxing, and monotonous. Above all else, we want maturity, dedication, and a desire to help. Being an admin will not put you above other members. You will not be admitted to some secret club, or have any kind of VIP pass to the front of any lines. You will be a volunteer, and the only benefit you are guaranteed is the good feeling of helping to keep the game enjoyable and fun.
Knowing this, apply only under the full understanding that this is almost on par with a part time job - we respect your real life and will definitely understand hiatuses, real life commitments, and your personal schedule, but a large amount of involvement and dedication is required. Don't apply if you're not serious about helping out, or don't have the time to.
There is no deadline. Applications will be open for all jobs and we will hire as needed.
- Must have a Discord account. Don't know about Discord? It's a free chat service and easy to download, but we rely upon it to communicate with each other, so this is a must-have. (Note: We communicate via instant message. You won't be required to voice or video call at any point.)
- Free time. Lots and lots of free time. We understand that Tokotas will not be the central focus of your life, but while you offer your service as an admin, you must be prepared to pitch in and actively participate.
- Kind attitude, and prior experience with the group. While we don't need you to be the most popular or active member in the group, we really prefer a bit of seasoning on our admins, enough to have confidence in answering difficult questions, and knowing the ins-and-outs. A good reputation is preferred; we are very selective in the hiring process and if you have a reputation for not responding to notes/not fulfilling obligations in a timely or courteous manner, you may be discounted.
These are the roles currently needed to be filled within the group. The roll you apply for now will be the one you stick with and the only one you assist with. It may not be particularly interesting work, but each role plays its part in making the group more engaging and interactive.
Design Approval and CorrectionNot currently hiring.
Design approval can be a daunting task, but those with good organization and critical thinking skills will excel at judging designs. Extensive training is provided on our markings and design approval process. (You don't necessarily have to be an amazing designer, but experience working with Tokotas genes and designs is very helpful.) The ability to voice chat is very helpful for the training process, but not required.
Judging Rites of FertilityNot currently hiring.
This is a pretty easy and general task over all, but it will require patience and integrity in judging. The job is not for you if you think you may be prone to bias against those you dislike. If you don't know what the Rites of Fertility are, you should probably stop reading this page in general.
Rolling BreedingsNot currently hiring.
Time consuming and tedious, you will be in charge of marking breedings, using bank docs, and rolling and posting the final litters.
Rolling ActivitiesCurrently hiring!
Time-consuming and high demand. Patience and integrity are necessary. Judging can get somewhat monotonous, so bring a snuggie and some tea.
Rolling TamingNot currently hiring.
Basically the same as hunting/exploration/fishing.
HP Counter, and Hierarchy UpdaterNot currently hiring.
Probably the most monotonous, but you won't need to think much. Basically, all you have to do is verify that peoples' HP journals are true to the HP system, as well as judge Rites of Dominance and Passage of the Alpha.
Additionally, you will be required to transfer the updated images over to the new versions on TotemSpirit- also pretty easy work.
Design UploaderNot currently hiring.
Not the most exciting of tasks, but a very vital one to the group. You will be responsible for uploading the pending Tokotas and adding their birth certificates.
BankerNot currently hiring.
Responsible for creating new accounts, redeeming pelts, item purchase and application, and all other bank related tasks.
Event CoordinatorNot currently hiring.
Along with question answerer, this job has the lowest level of admin access.
However, you will be responsible for pitching new official event ideas to the group, sanctioning/dealing out prizes to member competitions, and judging all events hosted by the group.
Continuous Event RollerNot currently hiring.
Along with Event Coordinator and Question Answered, this job has the lowest level of admin access.
You will be responsible for the rolling and folder maintenance of Continuous Events
TribesNot currently hiring.
Tasks in this section include registering new and old tribes on the companion site, counting and redeeming TP for tribes, confirming and updating their achievements, and approving and uploading new tribe companions. This job requires lots of work with the companion site, so you should be somewhat comfortable navigating it.
Question Answerer/PR Person/General OrganizationNot currently hiring.
Likely the easiest job -- but you must have a large knowledge of the group, enough to answer any questions that may be asked of the group! This job entails answering member questions, both in notes and on the public pages. You will also update the F.A.Q. as well as log admin activity, organize to do lists, and other odd jobs.
Adoption CenterNot currently hiring.
A relatively easy yet time consuming job. You will be selecting genos from the shrine and adding them to a google spreadsheet. You will also be replying to newbie comments and giving them genos from the spreadsheet. This includes checking to make sure they qualify for an AC geno.
Shrine RollerNot currently hiring
A bit time consuming and tedious. You will be in charge of marking all genos/companions/uploaded Tokota's to the shrine. We encourage people who are outgoing and overall a people person for this job, as you will be interacting with a lot of members.
Random EventsNot currently hiring.
A heavily creative position, this job requires story telling, diligence and a good grasp of mechanics.
How to Apply
If the above hasn't sent you screaming and running away in terror, you will need to send a note to TotemSpirit with the following information filled out in full:
Desired role and secondary desired role (if willing to work a different role in the event that your first choice is filled):
When did you join Tokotas?:
How much time can you offer?:
Prior experience (if any):
Previous designs (of yours) approved and posted on TotemSpirit (if applying for Design Corrections):
HP journal (of yours, if applying for HP counter):
Examples of group CSS/Events run in the past (of yours, if applying for event coordinator/design director):
Alternatively, you can be sign up on our Persistent Admin Hiring List. Anyone on the sheet could potentially be contacted for an admin position in any department that needs new hires. You can select a few departments that you don’t think you’d be suited for, but in general, this list is for someone who’d be willing to help out in almost any part of tokotas!
How do I know if I was hired?
You will receive a response to your note. If you do not receive a response, you were not hired. However, keep in mind that we greatly appreciate every application and willing volunteer!
Tokota item design
Love is in the Air: Valentines Event
[OLD] Rites of Fertility Submissions - May to July
You can design the geno yourself, browse advertisements in the group where people offer their design services (usually for USD, TT, points, or in-game items), or you can check out the Design Den to see if you qualify.
You can read about getting started here: Newbie Resources and Getting Started
;o; i sent a note for tribe admin but i saw today that they are hiring too admins vor activity rolls ;-; and i would love to help by both... but i didnt know that ... should i wait first to see if i get an response or not to my first note? XD
or should i just write another application?
It was mighty handy 'cause it gave an estimate if the job could be something for you or not and if you really have the time to do it properly.
In general, you can expect to work a minimum of 5 hours a week, though most admins spend significantly more that in their area and outside it when needed.
