Question I Have a Possibly Redundant Idea... - April 2nd 2013, 02:28 AM

So something on here made me realize that we should do shifts, in a way. I suppose with the different time zones, that already sorta happens, but I think we could improve it.

I'm mainly talking about during the night. Nighttime is usually when those scary thoughts haunt people. You're alone with yourself and no one else is awake. It's kinda nightmare-ish when I think about it that way.

Do some people already do shifts?

You know what, maybe the time difference does handle this, but I don't know...I just feel like it doesn't. It depends on what time zone most of the members are in. I just...I don't know. Do you get what I'm trying to say? Feedback needed. Moderators please?

I just am not sure what you mean by shifts, but I agree with night being the time when the haunting thoughts come, I know it does for me :P

Do you mean shifts for moderators/staff to be present online?

All of us are located in basically every timezone, so in theory, having shifts is a feasible idea, but the nature of the position is voluntary, so assigning times would be unfair. Life changes every day, and if we had shifts, users would only be able to interact with those "available" when they're online.

Is that what you meant? I don't know.

Kat has the same idea of your post as I do so if that's right then I think this would be a pretty good idea. It'd definitely help because nighttime is difficult for those going through rough times.

Well, I was only checking if that's what you meant by "shifts". As nice as it would be to have staff members available around the clock, it's simply impractical. I have shifts at work, but I only accept those shifts because I'm being paid. It wouldn't be fair to ask volunteers to accommodate these "shifts" and mix together "real life" commitments with TeenHelp. You know?

I'm just throwing ideas around. And I agree with the time zones...It already does cover all times, but I just feel like...I don't know any more. It was a fuzzy idea. :/
