Calontir Social Media Office

A Message from the KSMO

Greetings Calontir!

I, Lord Ren Jie, 任傑 领主, (MKA Jesse Riggs), have stepped into the role of Kingdom Social Media Officer. Please hold your applause till the end.

As we all can see, the Book of Faces (and Instagram, Twitter, Meetup, and Pinterest) are now permanent and much used methods of communication to and among the populace of the Known World. My task, in its basic function, is to maintain law and order upon these information highways.

In Calontir, I am charged mainly with ensuring Facebook Events are set up through official channels. I am an admin of both the Calontir Page and the Calontir Group. I will NOT be an admin of each local group’s Page or Group (unless there is no local SMO), but I am charged with directing improvements and changes to those as needed and requested, in concert with local Social Media Officers or similar functionaries.

Websites, the Calendar, and the Mews are NOT within my purview. Neither are unofficial, closed groups for the various facets of Calontiri life, such as Heralds of Calontir, or the Calontir Cooks Guild. If you are curious to know whether a group falls under the purview of the Social Media Policy, please consult this chart.

I will post social media content from Society Level to the Kingdom Pages as directed by the Society Social Media Officer. Via that channel I will also learn of potential incorrect content that may appear, for which I will advise SMOs and admins to be on the lookout. Monger war, not rumours, please.

The guiding tenet to be enforced is the “Society Social Media Policy”.

For your role in Calontir Social Media, please reference the “Social Media Officers and Admins Roles (and the Role of the Populace)” document linked from on this page. For information on who speaks electronically for the Kingdom and Local Groups, please see the “Social Media Voices Guide of Calontir.” If you are an event steward wishing to create a Facebook event, please see the “Facebook Event Creation Checklist”.

Over the past year (2018) we have seen the Society’s approach to social media evolve rapidly. While an excellent tool of collaboration and communication, these platforms can also very quickly become weapons of mass indiscretion. Please be aware there are Social Media Officers and admins available to assist the populace in robust and beneficial interaction, as well as correcting its misuse should the need arise. Social media is very much the public face of the Kingdom, and as such should be useful, engaging, and friendly.

Overall, I look forward to serving the populace and working to ensure our Kingdom is well-represented in the digital world. If at all possible, please communicate questions to me in .gif form, and Bitcoin is my preferred currency. The preceding line was definitely a joke.

In service to the dream, Lord Ren Jie, 任傑 领主
