Salutations, こんにちは, ようこそ, and welcome!

As I look to build on the channel and its mission further, I’m looking for volunteers to assist in a couple of ways. These roles I’m looking to fill are not only voluntary but are very important. I’m looking for people who would like to…

  • 🙅 Moderators: Moderate the channel (Twitch, YouTube) during live streams. I could use at least one more volunteer.
  • 🙋 Board Members: Initial board members as necessary to apply as a nonprofit. I need at least two more volunteers.

Requirements

These roles are very important. Those who wish to volunteer and be considered for such roles MUST…

  • … be familiar to the channel and its community (trusted).
  • … willing to assist in fundraising efforts.
  • … uphold the standards of the channel (and eventually the Organization).

Requirements specific to each role, respectively…

Moderators:
👉 Must do their best to make and be active in every live stream.
👉 Watch for bot driven moderation (bot mods) for anything action they take, review their actions, and act accordingly.
👉 Handle natural queues for running chat commands (running !raidcheer just before raiding another channel, for example).
👉 Being responsive to my requests (banning a viewer, for example).
👉 Ask me if there’s any uncertainty.

Board Members:
👉 Must do their best to make and participate board meetings.
👉 Give careful assessment on all matters and votes.
👉 Practice their memberships with the best interest of the mission.
👉 Being responsive to concerns.
👉 Ask me if there’s any uncertainty.

Preferred, But Not Required

For both roles, these traits are preferred, but not required for now. They are…

  • Having expert knowledge in nonprofit operations.
  • Having expert knowledge in information technology.
  • Having expert knowledge in Buddhism.
  • Having expert knowledge in video games and gaming
  • Being a nonprofit professional.
  • Being an IT professional.
  • Being a practicing Buddhist.
  • Being a professional gamer.

Interested?

If, after reviewing the requirements, you are interested in volunteering for either or both roles, please do the following…

  1. Read our mission statement, public benefit statement, and operation method. These can be found in the ABOUT page (https://about.taizen.org).
  2. Go to the CONTACT page (https://contact.taizen.org) and fill out the form. For the Inquiry Type, select “Volunteering”. Indicate your interest and share your Twitch handle in your message.

I appreciate your time, consideration, and possible interest in helping the channel in these ways! I look forward to your inquiries.

May all beings be safe, healthy, and joyous. 🙏

Salutations, こんにちは, ようこそ, and welcome!

I wanted to make a couple of update announcements. Without further adieu…

New Address Links: taizenorg

First, an update on the address links to Twitch, social media, and such.

As previously stated, I’ve changed my usernames to better fit the mission of my content creation. You will now find that…
Twitch: https://twitch.tv/taizenorg

My social media accounts have also not only followed suit, but they truly are in suit!
Twitter: https://twitter.com/taizenorg
Instagram: https://instagram.com/taizenorg
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/taizenorg

Note that if you’re already following me on any of these, you still are! The username change doesn’t affect you. For the rest of you, consider yourselves informed.

Go to SOCIAL MEDIA (https://social.taizen.org), which is under SUPPORT/CONTRIBUTE, for more information.

There are also changes on accessing the tipping and merch store links associated with StreamLabs and StreamElements. For more information on those, head to DONATE (https://donate.taizen.org) and EMPORIUM (https://emporium.taizen.org), which are under SUPPORT/CONTRIBUTE.

New Merch In The Emporium

Second, there’s new merchandise available in the Teespring store of Taizen’s Swag Emporium! Make sure to visit and check out the new iPhone cases for the iPhone 12 series, zip-up hoodies, fanny packs, accessory bags, and more. Head over to the EMPORIUM (https://emporium.taizen.org) straightaway!

Personal Update

While I’ve been doing my best, I still have symptom flare ups from COVID-19 (primarily coughing spells, some of them debilitating, some headache inducing, most of them exhausting). I’m trying to stick to a steady schedule, but these flare ups don’t allow for it sometimes. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Hopefully this will be less and less frequent as my convalescence continues and I’ll soon be broadcasting steadily again.

I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. 🙏

That’s all for now. See you online!
May all beings be safe, healthy, and joyous. Gassho. 🙏
