Signup to Forum Community Staff
On the Animeleague forums we have four levels of staff - Assistants, Moderators, Head Moderators and Administrators.
We take signups to staff at the assistant level. Higher levels of staff are picked from the pool of assistants.
The benefits of becoming an assistant include earning forum-credits to your account, having the opportunity to prove yourself for higher roles, and working as part of a team which can help you get to know other members better.
We ask that you have 100 posts minimum to be on the forums.

.Signup to Events Crew
Interested in staffing for one of our events such as Alcon
, London Anime Con
or London Gaming Con
? Then read on!
Why Crew?Well, you get free entry and one free-meal a day. And of course you get the satisifaction of having helped the convention out. We're always happy to provide references to people who work for us, so it's something extra which you can add to your CV afterward. Crewing is also a very easy way to get to know other members of the con, and there is usually a lot of camaraderie between fellow crew members over the course of the event!
What Kind of Work is it? Usually a crew member will help to manage queues, serve attendees, act as a runner to move equipment/items around and so forth. When you join crew, you are placed on to a team. Each team has a team-leader who you will report in to and who will look after you over the event. Each shift you are given is usually two-three hours long.
How many hours does a full-crew member do? Each full-crew member does 7 hours a day that they attend. This entitles them to free entry in addition to free meal.
What Teams are there? Specialist, Video Gaming, Artists Alley, Registrations & Help, Cosplay Organisers, Hall Events, Bar Events and Dealers.
I've already paid my entry, can I get it back if I crew? Provided you do the shifts which are allocated to you, then you will receive the entry money back on the Sunday.
What's this about setup and takedown Crewing? If you want to help out on the Friday or Monday for setup or take-down, then shifts you do then will count toward your hours. This means you'll be working less on the event days.
