Staff and Special Teams
The Staff Code
Here at GP, we take pride in the community we have built. We focus on the fun side of roleplaying. Building worlds, developing characters and plots, creating stories, etc., all while maintaining a friendly and safe community. Our goal is to protect YOU, the member. We take pride in being friendly and approachable. We are here to help you in anything you may need while keeping our moral code intact. When need be, we will be firm and tough, but we are understanding. We are not here to be ban-happy, internet famous, or in way to be "superior " to anyone else on this site. To us, the members are the most important on GP.
As a Staff Member, we promise to:
Be Respectful: As a staff member, I vow to be approachable and treat each member and fellow staff member with respect and never put myself above them.
Be Responsible: I promise to make sure to think about each decision fully and review all sides before taking action and keep the best in mind for the community.
Be a Role Model: I will lead by example. I will be a leader and be someone that everyone can look up to and be proud of my position on staff.
Be Professional: I will conduct myself in the most professional of manners despite whatever real life issues I may be dealing with. If I cannot do so, I will pass the situation on to a member of staff that can.
Administrators are the highest tier of the staff. They are the ones that ensure the success of the site, by handling approvals, making site changes when necessary, keeping the rest of staff full of active and dedicated participants, and generally drive the site. They are the ones to go to when a rule has been broken, or if someone is threatening your well-being. In addition if you feel that any staff member is not living up to what is expected of them, come forward to an Admin even if the person in question is another Admin. We are here for you always.
Ambassadors are the second tier of staff. They have the ability to moderate the entire site. They have the ability to issue warnings and bans. They are the ones to go to if you need a topic locked--that means that no replies can be added to a thread. But the Ambassadors, are more than just people who lock threads, they are representatives of the six important aspects of Guilty Pleasures. Each Ambassador works on a specific areas of expertise but together they are the the bloodline of Guilty Pleasures.

Global Moderators are the third tier of staff. They have the ability to moderate the entire site. They have the ability to issue warnings and bans. They are the ones to go to if you need a topic moved, locked, deleted, etc. They also handle most, if not all the reports that come in through our report system. They are the muscle of Guilty Pleasures Roleplaying.
Current Global Moderator Lead: Silver Wolf
Welcoming Committee members are the fourth tier of staff. They moderate the Introduction forum and help keep an eye on the site, reporting to the appropriate staffer when needed. Their primary goal is to touch base with each and every newcomer that joins the site, showing them around, explaining the goals of the site, offering themselves as mentors, making themselves available for any questions or concerns, and generally making each new member feel welcomed into our community. Because they work more closely with the community, they are considered one of the most important aspects of the site. They are the ones to go to when you have general questions, need assistance or advice, or want someone to talk to.
Current Welcoming Committee Lead: Kag
Chat Moderators are the ones who watch over our chat to ensure that it remains fun for all members, while enforcing rules to keep the community safe.
