A small step for you, but a big one for the Cafe

Postby Dolfin99 » Sun Jun 21, 2009 8:46 pm

The Cafe was created in 2002, and has gone a long way since. Being one of the most innovative sites out there, many of the features that are the gold standard of fantasy sports sites today have originated at the Cafe. The Cafe has helped me win many games and draft solid lineups and I am sure it has done the same for you. As we continue to grow and evolve, we are always looking for people who would like to walk a stretch of the way together with us and help extend the frontier of what fantasy sites can offer. :-D

The number of activities available at the Cafe is simply enormous, so if you would like to join in and lend a hand (and why wouldn't you!), there's a 100% chance we can match you with a task that meets your talents and interests. If you're planning to give something back to the Cafe or your fellow members, simply looking for some more activity to participate in on your favorite site, or even longing to acquire skills that might help you pursue a future career in fantasy sports.

Very generally, areas include (but aren't limited to) writing, editing, managing, broadcasting, programming and pretty much anything slick and cool that holds a fantasy site together. :-b You can bring you own skills and ideas, or simply take ours. ;-)

Remember that this site is run by you, the Cafe members. It's a game of give and take, and the more you, the members, give to the Cafe, the more the Cafe will be able to give back to you. Regardless of whether you can help just once or five days a week, any assistance that you can provide is welcome. If you feel you can contribute one way or other, reply to this thread or contact dolfin99 via PM and he will not only answer any questions that you may have, but also set you up and get you going. ;-D

Yeah guys, helping out is a good idea anywhere something is free and of great help (duh). I personally can vouch for the great crew that runs the Fantasy Cafe Radio, so if you have been thinking about doing a podcast for anything this is a good place to get your feet wet.

I suppose I could help in writing (dunno what about) and programming (dunno which language). What is 'managing'? Is that regarding being a forum administrator? I'd also be up for any general tasks/editing that need to be done if it would help. I could also be good at mocking humorless Cafe members, but I suppose that's outside the lines of what the Cafe truly needs. Well, let me know.

You're mixing up your 1960s quotes. The title should be "Ask not what the Cafe can do for you - ask what you can do for the Cafe." :-b That said, I volunteer to correct any and all trivial, piddling errors made by others.

I could do some writing as well but all the major/important/interesting topic are already covered by current columns. I have some experience administrating internet message boards but my expertise lies with vBulletin.

I can help edit - that's what I do in the real world (editor).
Not sure if I would have the time to research and write an article, but willing to pitch in if/when needed.

Not sure what you need or what I can do but I could probably help out. I know my wife doesn't think I spend enough time on the computer already.

I would be willing to something. I know I cannot write, but would be willing to do some grunt work.
