FE Academy, New and Improved!
#1
As has been previously eluded to, we have been working on reviving the FE Academy as part of the ongoing improvements and focus of the site. The Academy will be helping fill some critical roles at the site in order to make certain ongoing process better, as well as to provide unique feedback to the staff of the site.

  • Review First-Time submissions. One of the key functions of the Academy will be to provide consistency to the process of approving first-time editors at the site. Moving forward only Academy members can approve a First-time editor to fe.org. This will help provide consistency, drasticly reduce the time it takes for a faneditor to get feedback, and ensure that they get detailed, constructive feedback should the submission require more work. There is now a dedicated submission form for First Time editors to the site. This replaces the old 'Firstlings and other fanedits needing review' forum.
  • Annual Fanedit Awards. Academy members will be a key part of the Annual Awards process. While the staff will still be responsible for organizing, defining and executing the awards, the Academy will be an integral part of the nomination and judging process. Details on the Awards will be announced separately.
  • Provide Feedback for the Staff. On an as needed basis, the staff may need to consult with the Academy to review an idea, proposal or situation in which non-staff but experienced forum perspective might prove helpful in reaching decisions which are best for the site and community. The Academy will represent a forum-member perspective which the staff will regard heavily when needed.

Please keep in mind that Academy members are not Staff nor Moderators. They have no 'powers' within the forum and are not responsible for policing threads, moderating issues or otherwise running the site. These members will be augmenting the staff with their experience, enthusiasm and judgement to help make the site better for everyone.

So please welcome our new Academy Members!
