Staff Member: Jake
AKA: Ross
Real Name: Jake
Location: Australia
Staff Position: Final Fantasy section Moderator
Joined Site: 4th September, 2015
Joined Staff: 26th June, 2019
Staff History: After joining the community’s free company in Final Fantasy XIV way back in late 2015, a couple of years later I would be promoted to one of the three (sometimes four!) leaders that help manage and run the guild. While separate from the forum itself, from there I eventually became a moderator on the site in 2019.

Bio: Hmmm, what can I say?! I’m from the Southern part of Australia and I more or less discovered this website and community because of the only Final Fantasy game I have played to date – XIV. I graduated from university in early 2019, but next year I will be starting my master’s and studying to become a teacher.

Interests / Hobbies: I’m a huge video game nerd. Just not… a huge Final Fantasy nerd. But I’m getting there! Maybe. If I’m not raiding in FFXIV, then I’m probably playing an FPS like Battlefield or Halo, or an RPG like Mass Effect. Beyond gaming, another hobby that I do regularly is simply just reading many different forums and rambling about whatever I can in whatever dazed/sleep deprived state I find myself in. I’m particularly interested in sociology and criminology too.

Fun Facts: I have no fun facts! Hmmm. Okay okay how about… I’m a bit of a clean freak in real life. Does that count as a fun fact?! OH. I have what looks to be one too many ankles on each foot and once as a child I fractured my elbow when I fell off some play equipment – the result of which is that I can bend my arm backwards a lot further than you would expect. I can also twist it around almost entirely! You’re welcome.

Approachability: I don’t do early mornings. I can quickly become irritated at even the smallest of things. But if it’s past 8am then HELLO.

Favourite FF: Final Fantasy XIV!
- What made you decide to become a staff member here, and why do you stay?
A couple of years ago I saw that FFF were looking for a new moderator and while I briefly thought about it at the time, in the end I decided to ignore the post and tried to instead focus my efforts on involving myself as a regular member into the community more. Fast forward to 2019, and again I saw a very similar recruitment post, and – again – thought about whether I could really offer anything to the community at large if I were a moderator. In the end I decided that maybe I could if I had the opportunity… and so here we are! In addition, I’ve always been impressed with the moderation staff here and so it was really a no brainer when I was offered a position!

- Do you find it easy to work with your fellow team members?
Hmmm, given how recent my promotion was I haven’t had many opportunities to work with my fellow team members, but with that said everyone is always very respectful and willing to lend a hand and so I do not foresee any difficulties in the future!

- What are some challenges you face (or have faced) as a staff member?
I’ll have to get back to you on this one, boss.

- What are some key improvements you’ve noticed about our current staff team and administration?
This one too, haha.

- In your opinion, what are the most important positive qualities of this forum?
I think the biggest and most important positive quality of this forum is just how connected and close knit everyone is. While the number of unique posters that are visiting the site are clearly not what they used to be a decade ago, the people that do visit this site do so regularly and involve themselves within the community as best as they can. For the most part we’re all civilised, respectful, and friendly. It’s a nice environment to be in.

- Describe a typical (or memorable) day in the job. What do you find most enjoyable about your job?
I log in and check the Final Fantasy sections for any kind of spam bots and then go through all the newest messages to keep myself updated, haha. It’s been quiet on this front though!

- In the time that you have been a member here, how much have things changed?
I think the biggest thing that has changed – outside of the site redesign – is the rise of discord and the effect that has had on forums in general. For the most part the forum’s discord channel is first contact for our community veterans and regulars, whereas a few years ago most of that activity would have been seen in the shoutbox. Admittedly it’s a little sad to see forum activity drop from time to time, but most importantly the community is still alive and kicking.

- Outside FFF, what do you like to do during your free time?
It probably goes without saying at this point, but if I’m not studying then I’m probably watching, playing, reading, or eating something. Haha. No regrets.

- What’s the best thing that’s happened to you so far while staying here at FFF?
Meeting and getting to know the people I have.
