The new leaders have officially been chosen and here is an interview with one of them @Jass

It’s just hours ago @ShanniiWrites announced the 6 new forum leaders. So congratulations to @anon68003072, @AlissaGrace , @fcukforcookies , @Jass , @Caticorn and @MeghanWrites for getting chosen to become a leader. There have been 29 applications in total so the decision must have been tough. For those who might not have been chosen or suddenly got interested in applying to become a leader on this forum. The next time the leader applications are open again , will be when the forum reaches 500 users.

Read more and see my interview with Jass

I have asked a good friend of mine Jass for a short interview talking about her experience of applying for a leadership role, here on the forums. For those who don’t know our interviewee, you might be more familiar with a couple of the many threads she made on here, instead. Some topics that might come to mind are the; This or that game ,Photography thread :camera: or one of her many thought-provoking discussions that she has started. Like the Discussion: Zwarte Piet (blackface character in Dutch holiday) and her more recent discussion regarding Photoshop.

Q= question A= answer

Q: Hello there @Jass what made you decide you to apply to become a leader on the Shanniwrites forum?
A; Hii, I decided to apply because I love this place a lot and feel like this was a good way for me to contribute to this place.

Q: Did you have any doubts when making this decision?
A: I definitely did, I am definitely not the most confident person and also didn’t want to ruin my friendship with @anon68003072, I would always put a good friend above becoming a leader.

Q: What do you personally think are qualities that make a great leader?
A: Somewhat serious but a really open and easy to talk to person is not afraid to take some responsibility.

Q: Did you have any difficulty answering the questions while filling in the forum leader application?
A: I did, some questions were pretty difficult and I am not the best at multiple choice so I definitely wasn’t always sure if I actually did well. But at the same time I was also really excited to do it and it went pretty naturally.

Q: Have you done anything differently, in order to stand out and make Shanni and Deluge notice you as a good potential candidate for the job? And do you think it has helped?
A: Not really tbh, everything I’ve done the last time I also would have done if I wasn’t applying, since I feel like it’s important to be yourself. Even tho I think the Zwarte Piet discussion did maybe help me a little bit in showing I am not scared to bring controversy.

Q: How do you feel now that you have been chosen to be a leader on the forums? Did you expect it?
A: Really happy and excited but also a bit nervous for everything that’s to come. I still have a lot to learn. Honestly I wasn’t sure, some moments I was pretty confident others I didn’t thought I would make it…

Q: What do you think of your new colleagues?
A: They are all nice, even tho I don’t know all of them really well!

Q: And last, but not least. Do you have any encouraging words to the people that think of applying, the next time a leader is to be chosen?
A: Just go for it, be yourself the upcoming time and don’t worry about it too much!
