Cid's Knights and Administrators
These are the forums staff of Eyes on Final Fantasy, and are responsible for keeping misbehaving users in line, as well as being helpful to new members. They also decide on the rules of the forum and what new features should be implemented.
Cid's Knights can edit and delete all posts, as well as close, delete, move, stick, merge or rename all threads. They can also edit signatures, avatars and profile pictures, and can hand out a variety of bans. Administrators can also do all of this, and they can also edit various elements of user profiles (such as names) plus the very forum itself by adding new forums, usergroups, features, etc.
Developers play a vital role in the maintenance and construction of the site. While the majority of their work might be behind the scenes in the code that normal users can't see, their importance to making Eyes on Final Fantasy a smooth sailing vessel of hopes and dreams is paramount. Developers are also responsible for those sweet styles that you use to browse the site and forums, so be sure to thank them. Developers also are responsible for setting up and maintaining our incredibly snazzy frontsite.
They are not responsible for moderating the forums/community, except as moderators of the Site Contributions Forum, so if you have a problem with the forums, it's best to contact a Cid's Knight or Administrator instead, although it is possible to be on both Forums and Site Staff. If you spot an error with the frontsite, however, feel free to let them know in the Site Contributions forum.
Editors are charged with creating content for the Eyes on Final Fantasy frontsite, ranging from news on upcoming games, special giveaways, forum events and even feature articles on a variety of different topics! Being an editor requires a keen handling of the English language and a desire to keep the rest of the members, and any passersby, updated on what's happening in the worlds of Final Fantasy and Square Enix!
Users that have contributed something special to Eyes on Final Fantasy, such as an event or a service, are rewarded with the Recognized Member Rank. They receive a colored title, extra Mognet Message space and the ability to close their own threads.
Former Staff and Former Site Staff
These are members that used to be on either the Forums or Site Staff, but are no longer a part of it. They are given these titles to thank them for all the work that they did and remind all the young whippersnappers that without their assistance, Eyes on Final Fantasy wouldn't be here as it is today!
I want one of these titles!
Don't we all! The best way to get yourself in the running for one of these roles is to help out in as many ways as you can. Providing assistance in the Site Contributions Forum, or a Site Content Project for a new game, is just one way of proving you're not only devoted to improving Eyes on Final Fantasy, but also to enjoying the series. Don't worry if you don't think your skillset is good enough; there are plenty of jobs for all kinds of people, it's the desire to help out that is most important. Being a good, active and productive member is the best way to get noticed and approached for a position as one of the staff members. Pro-tip: Don't ask for the title, though, or even try to give subtle hints that you think you deserve it. We keep tabs on who's got potential and will call them when there's an opportunity or opening for a new staff member. In the mean time, have fun!
