    Exclamation Want to run the VHLinks Twitter?

    Hi all,

    I am not a fan of Twitter, as I have noted before. I don't like to use it, but I know it's a necessary evil, and we need a better presence online. I have already reached out to the staff, and nobody was really interested in doing this, so I thought I would reach out to the members of the forum.

    I am looking for someone to handle the VHLinks Twitter page. If you are not sure where it is, it's located here:
    http://www.twitter.com/vhlinksdotcom

    Whoever takes this on this on would have to take it on in a serious way. What I mean by that is you are a representative of the site, not yourself, and as such, I expect that you will handle yourself accordingly. I do not want people engaging in Twitter wars, flame fests, childish arguments, political commentary, etc. What I want is for you to post 3-4 times a week something Van Halen-related on our Twitter page...consistently at least 3-4 times week. Important to be consistent! We have about 3,300 followers from me basically doing nothing, and I know if we do post consistently, we can grow that number very quickly.

    Here's the lowdown on everything you may have questions on.

    1. While you have free reign to post whatever you want, I have final say in anything posted under the vhlinksdotcom moniker. If I don't want it on there, it gets removed. You don't have to clear anything with me beforehand unless you are worried about it for some reason.

    2. The person I choose for this will have to be someone who has contributed a lot to this web site in a positive way...most of the time...haha. You know what I mean. It should be someone who does care about this place and does find some fun still in being a Van Halen fan.

    3. Grammar. I am a huge grammar and spelling freak. I hate when stuff goes out in a social networking setting with bad grammar and spelling. I take pride in this, and you need to as well. Seriously if you can't write a coherent 280-character post with proper grammar and spelling, then this definitely isn't the job for you. You should know how to use "your" and "you're" correctly.

    4. You should be experienced with Twitter and know how to use it properly, tag, etc. I barely know enough to be dangerous, you need to know 10x more than me. If you're asking, "How do I post on Twitter?" this again probably isn't the job for you.

    5. Is this a paying gig? Are you kidding? No I do this site for fun, I can't pay anyone. That's why we have server drives every year. The mods don't get paid, they do this because they like it. That's what this is too. Not to say one day something may not happen to change this, but right now this is purely pro bono. Once in a while there may be a perk. I believe at one time all the mods got signed copies of Neil Zlozower's book.

    6. Would you be part of the staff? Yes. Which also means whoever I pick has to be approved by the moderators. Shouldn't be a big deal, but I will be getting their input.

    7. When do I want to start this? ASAP. As soon as the right person contacts me, we'll do it. It's not like it's a real job or anything, it's FOR FUN.

    If you are interested, you can send me a private message, and we'll go from there. Also, I am not posting this on the Facebook group, only on here because I want someone who is active on the forums. The main pulse of the site is still on this forum. If for some reason I can't find anyone on here, then I'll turn to the FB group option. I don't think that's going to be necessary. The right person is here.

    And that's all. Thanks for reading. I'm going to close this. Whatever questions you have, you can ask me privately. Now I have no idea how many people will apply for this, so please be patient with me getting back to you. I will respond in some way to every single person who reaches out, it just may take some time. And please don't be offended if I don't select you, I can only choose one person. And I'm not even sure anyone will want to do this. The mods surely didn't.

    PS - I just wanted to add this to keep in mind. Assuming this goes well, I will also look to add someone to help me administer the VHLinks Facebook group as well. I'm also thinking of starting an Instagram a bit down the road too. One thing at a time, but just keep these things in mind if you think you may be interested. Some of you guys are really good at this stuff and I'd like to take advantage of your expertise if people are willing.
