Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of our Weekly Staff Member Interview Series!
This week, we have decided to interview Joshua Farrell. This member is a staff member of Forum Promotion, and is the Team Leader of the Editorial Team!
Now on to the interview!
Who is Joshua Farrell?
I am Joshua Farrell of course. I am from Preston Idaho. I am 26 years old, and I am the 5th out of 7 children.
My father used to be in the U.S. Air Force, and we moved around quite the bit. Finally, after living in Las Vegas Nevada for 6 years, we ended up in Preston Idaho of all places! That is quite the drive to move!
Preston Idaho is a small city of 5,200 people. It doesn’t have much in terms of stuff to do in your spare time, but there are a few places that one can go to, that are open most hours of the day. We have a 24 hour Gym, multiple convenience stores, a opera house that also shows movies, a marketplace, and plenty of stores that cater to farming. There are more to Preston, but all in all, in order for us to do much of anything, we have to do a little bit of driving north or south to do things.
If you could affect one thing in your state, what would it be?
The overall lack of things to do locally in the cities and towns less than 25,000 people is the biggest problem. Not many places has movie theaters, big shopping marts, sports centers, and stuff in general. We do have rodeos and demolition derbies, but much of anything else in the small cities is not a good thing. If I had the ability, I would encourage the state to put funds aside to help encourage businesses to invest in the smaller communities, instead of focusing on the quarter million to half a million plus population communities.
What do you do when you are not online?
I enjoy taking walks, watching some tv when there is nothing else to do, and enjoying time with my family. In terms of work, I keep records for my local church’s congregation. It is a mess at the moment. People are moving in and out of the area, and there are a number of people we do not know where they moved to, so that we can send records to their new local church congregation! Though, the fun part about it, is that I get to meet people, and get to know them a whole lot better!
If you want to know, I am LDS.
Do you own or run any websites?
Well yes and no. I helping run a educational and news website called The Moral Liberal, but it has been put on the side as a non important task at the moment.
So, you are in the Editorial Staff. What is the Editorial Staff, and what do you do?
The Editorial Staff, is the service team that maintains the homepage’s blog. We also edit and publish any articles that the community may want to publish.
If The Editorial Team really a service team, then what is the service that you provide us?
It is a service team, in the aspect that we provide informational articles, tutorials, tips, and other ideas on how to better yourself as a webmaster, and how to pretty much do things. The other part of the team being a service team, is that we make sure that the articles that are submitted to the blog, aren’t spam in nature, and that they are of good enough quality, that you can learn from the article!
Is your team hiring?
It is, you can go to our Hiring Thread to put in an application! That thread has the requirements, and the positions in the team that we are hiring for. I am the Team Leader, so any applicants go through me. The positions are Informational Editor, Community Editor, Technical Editor and Webmaster News Editor. The thread has the descriptions to those jobs, so to prevent duplication, I won’t be telling you what they do in this interview.
What is the staff area like?
Oh, it is nothing special. It has typical things that staff takes care of, like a spam board that holds spam, a trash board that holds outdated topics, and other boring stuff. It is nothing special really.
Anything else you would like to mention?
I would like to thank the staff who originally hired me on, for allowing me the chance to be on such a good team! And if you want to be part of the team, you have a link above that you can go to to find the information to do so!
