Married mom, mid 50's hailing from the USA. I have been a part of the Friendship Chat Room since 2000, brought there originally as a guest by chatter Crash. The many friends that I have made through this room will no doubt be friends that I will have for a lifetime. I hope that anyone who comes into our room will feel the warmth and friendship from all of our Admin Team and our regular chatters too! So come on in but be warned – our room is quite addicting!

Recipe for Au Village:
Take 1 Lil chic and add insanity, leave to simmer for 22 years.
Then enforce normality into her brain for 3 minutes. feed 400g of sugar products and wash down with a can of red bull. Drop her into one friendship chat and place headphones into her ears. Play music loud until early hours of the morning.
Voila, Au Village Idiot! zehr freundlich!

Admin: 2011 - current. Chatter since: 2008.

Hi I am Ses from sunny South Africa. I'm in my 40's with one son.  I originally found this site after googling "friendly chatroom".  After trying a few very dodgy rooms,  I was about ready to give up and believe my mom that said  "all chat rooms are bad",  when I stumbled into the door of Friendship Page found a seat and have been here ever since.  Pop in and say Hello but do be warned it is addictive. 

  Silk
Admin current.

Coming soon!

  Lostsoul
Admin current. (aka Grumpy Old Man)

I have been a regular for over 2 years although I’ve coming in longer than that to torment the staff; just don’t tell them I said that. The staff and regular chatters are who kept me coming back to FP. I enjoy learning about people, where they are from and how things are different where they live. I’ve traveled some in my younger years and know some things about a few places, so don’t be surprised if I ask you a question or two or three and make a comment about where you live. Remember to tell your friends about Friendship Page the more chatters who show up the more chatters I can tease.

  Loonie - Australia
Admin Sept 2011 - current. EA: April 2011 - Sept 2011. Admin: Jan 2010 - April 2011; April 2009 - June 2009.

Hi I'm loonie. Yep, still loonie by name loonie by nature, just a bit  more loonie then when I first started chatting  here ha-ha. I started chatting in FP just after my 18th (could be 19th haaa) birthday &  I'm now 27. ( you do the maths :P ) Proves how addictive the room is though! 
 I'm married & have a  little girl who is as mad as myself, &  will be turning 3 in a few months. (yay) Not sure how I feel about that part of life. (The growing up)   ;) I'm originally from the UK but moved over to Australia back in 2010, which was pretty life changing! As you may have noticed in the room I am a little bit out there & have a straight to the point attitude , but believe it or not I can be really nice if I feel like it. :P On a serious note I am easy going & always free for a chat & laughs, always the laughs. Soo if you feel like a bit of silly random talk feel free to log in & have a chat to myself & the other awesome chatters in the room. :) (I'll stop talking now)  Have fun!

Joining the Admin Team

Being an Admin is a rewarding and challenging job that comes with much responsibility, so it is important we have the right people on the team. Potential admins will now need to be nominated by chatters, rather than nominating themselves. This allows everyone to have more of a say in the process. This is what will happen:

  1. Regular chatter nominates you. You'll need to be over 18 and a regular room chatter for over 6 months.
  2. The Admin team will determine if your nomination will progress.
  3. If you're approved, you will be asked if you're interested in a "Rookie" position on the team (see below for more info about Rookies).
  4. After three months of being a Rookie, you, the Managers and the Admin team will decide if you're best suited to Admin, EA or regular chatter.

So if you know someone who'd be a great Admin or EA, please nominate them by filling out the Rookie Nomination Form. You'll need to include the following information:

  1. Chatters Screen Name (who are you nominating)
  2. Their Age
  3. Their Location
  4. How long have they been chatting with FP
  5. Why you feel they would make a good Rookie/Admin/EA
  6. Their email address to confirm and contact if they would like to join the team
  7. Your chat name
Thanks!


About the Admin Team Roles

Rookie Admin - 3 month probation period (RA)

We will be bringing on new potential admins called Rookies shown as [username-RA]. They will have a different colour to their icon. Admins icons being red, theirs will be white. Rookies will be a trainee position, or a 3 month learning period to get used to the room.

First month - only to access the room as Rookie while Debs, Village_Idiot or Mr. Spock is available. A Manager will be your Mentor to help guide you during the whole 3 months.

Second and Third month - only access the room when any other admin is available. You will be then monitored by other Admins. You will be expected to take what you've learnt from the first month to apply, how you so wish, to any situation you come across within the last two months.

At the end of the probation period we will review your progress and decide whether or not to have you as a more permanent member of the team. It is important that you understand that we cannot guarantee you a place on the team. You will not automatically be given full Admin privileges - either as EA or Regular Admin.

Rookie Privileges. What you will be able to do: Kick, Silence/Voice, Speak as System Speaker, Used Canned Messages, See IP's that enter, and normal chatter controls.

Emergency Admin (EA)

This is not a lower status to Regular Admin. This is not a stepping stone to jump to Regular Admin.

Only to be used in an emergency - either when another Admin requires help or if there is no Admin available and there's a problem in the room when a Rookie Admin is in.. Otherwise, please use normal chatroom username. This position has a lot less pressure than normal Admin.

Assisting Rookie Admins. This will be the only time where you are allowed to sit in the room as an EA. Please allow Rookies to deal with a problematic person and then step in to ban if needed. You are only there as back up.

Regular Admin

The is no limitation as to when you can or cannot be Admin. You can come in when you are available.

Assist Rookie Admins - Please allow Rookies to deal with a problematic person and then step in to ban if needed. You will only be required to back them up.

EA and Regular Admin Privileges. What you will be able to do: Ban. Kick. View IP numbers. Silence/Voice. Change names. Admin speaker notice. View Admin notice. Speak as system speaker. Admin Macros. Cloak*. View cloaked Admins. Normal chatter controls. Access to the Remote Admin Console. *Only when necessary.

What you won’t be able to do: View Transcripts. Subnet Bans. Grant Admin privileges.

EA and Regular Admin's Other Requirements

Report all bans: including ones done on your behalf for Rookie Admins. Nominate and vote for new recruits. Based on attributes and positive judgements. Discuss reasons for nominations. Review Rookie Admins progress. Email good and bad points of each RA to either Debs or Village_idiot. Give reasons why you feel they should or should not be considered for a permanent position. Discuss any issue regarding FP. Giving new ideas, suggestions and anything else that will help better the chatroom. Discuss problem areas and how you feel they would best be solved, including who you feel should be given an instant ban and give reasons.

Accountability For Admin Team      

   While the Admins and EAs are the leaders of our community, chatters are on equal footing - we’re all involved in nurturing our friendly community!  So it’s important to know that Admins are held accountable for their actions.  Where several serious complaints are made for inappropriate conduct against a current Admin or current EA to chathelp, there will be a process followed. 

We encourage Admins to be active in the room, joining often to carry out their duties and help other chatters.  However, we understand that life brings different priorities at different times and wish to support our Admins.  Admins who need to take a break from the room but still wish to remain on the team can take the option to go ‘on leave’.  This status will be reflected on the main page, and they will in effect be on holidays.  Admins are welcome to return from leave when they are able.  If Admins wish to go on leave or return to the team, they just need to email the team or chathelp.  To be fair to other team members, Admins may be removed from the team at the Managers’ discretion if they don’t join the room for an extended period of time without any communication.
