Pony of Indeterminate Size: I'm not sure if we've discussed this before, but would it be okay to add a "Jobs Wanted" side to the Jobs area?

I'm thinking about the wonderful response that the esteemed OP has gotten here, both publicly and privately. Many of us probably wouldn't have specific jobs to post, but would help out a fellow member or member's friend looking for something else. It would also be really useful for those of us who might consider going to a city but aren't sure what's out there, or those open to multiple types of work ["Looking for barista or English professor position in Portland"]. Plus we could post freelance offerings up there, too.

Mainly, I envision a job-seeker posting something and others following up with details via MeMail.

Thank you; come again.

While we're on the subject of jobs, are the jobs posted subject to moderator approval before appearing on the site?
posted by dersins at 3:52 PM on August 26, 2010


No, Jobs are posted immediately and only removed if there's a problem.

Nope. For the record, here's how posting works on all the parts of the site.

MeFi - Posts go up directly. First posts and post of people on the watchlist [mostly people who look like SEO scammers] are emailed to us also. I think we're emailed all posts, but I mostly file mine and don't look at them, don't know about the other folks.
MeTa - Posts go up directly. All MeTa posts are also emailed to Team Mod.
AskMe - Posts go up directly. AnonyMe posts go into a queue. An alert that there is a new post in the queue goes to me and mathowie. Most anon posts are approved within 24-48 hours if they're approved at all.
Jobs - Posts go up directly.
Projects - mathowie approves Projects posts.
Music - Posts go up directly.
IRL - Posts go up directly [maybe emailed to someone who is not me]

A lot of us are feeling pretty dated already, thanks.

There's no dating site in the works, but you can set a relationship status in your site preferences.

Yeah but you can only choose 'single', 'taken', or 'open'. I need a 'desperate' option.

Sweet!

I can understand why it would be a moderation nightmare, but I do think that it's too bad that DateMe or whatever you'd call the dating site doesn't seem to be on the agenda.

Well the craigslist adult ads might be going down soon...and i know some mefites pride themselves on sexing. So will people be able to advertise their services?

I learned in college that im pretty good at hearing people sexing next door and putting up an annoying soundtrack...now that i have iTunes, i bet id be a lot better.

I really hate the use of "sexing" to mean "having sex." Won't somebody please think of the chickens?
