A few people (at the time of writing) and I are opening up a new website called 'SimsCast'. SimsCast will mainly scope in providing free, live-streaming Sims 2 (popular PC game today) music. If you've heard of The Sims 2 or play it, you're quite familiar with the entire music system the game plays internally during gameplay.

The stream will be powered by SHOUTcast software & Winamp. The idea is that we have a bunch of networks, each scoping in providing a Sims 2 music genre of their own. Each network will have its own website (probably using a subdomain under the main domain).

Positions

We're going to need a lot of staff for the new site. We have plenty of positions available:

  • Server Hosters
  • Network Administrators
  • Graphic Designers (these guys will be teaming up with a specific Network Administrator to create graphic designs for the network site)

Jobs Overview

Server Hosters:
Each music genre must be hosted on a different computer (you can host numerous servers on one single PC, but that'd kill mine) :P

We're looking for people that will be willing to host a SHOUTcast server on their computer. NOTE: This requires that your PC is kept on for long periods of time (hence, almost never turned off).

We can arrange any specific dates that you can host a server. For example, if you don't like the idea of having your PC on 24/7, we can arrange a specific schedule that will allow you to turn off your PC at some point.

Network Administrators:
As stated above, each music genre will be on a different site (or 'Network'). There may be a couple Network Administrators assigned to a specific music genre. NA's will basically take role in operating the Network by managing the site. NA's will receive necessary server resources, such as FTP access, Control Panel access, etc.

Graphic Designers:
We will need designers that are willing to produce graphics for Network sites. Any GD's will team up with NA's to come up with ideas, requests, etc. pertaining to aspects of the site - both NA's and GD's are responsible for website production.

More positions may become available as we discover we need other tasks completed. If you have ANY ideas (whether it's a site suggestion, question, comment, job suggestion, etc.), feel free to reply to this topic. We're going to need all the help we can get. :)

So, who's interested?

Oh yes, our website is located here:

sCast - Redirecting...

Warning: If you've never heard of The Sims 2, ignore the background music (it's not in english). :P

Wow you have 3 sites now.
cool I wish I had time to do Graphics for you.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
