Once again Operation Rainfall is opening their doors to new volunteers! We had such a great reaction last time that we actually had to turn people away. If you were turned away (sorry about that! I promised we would be taking on new people again soon though), if you thought about volunteering but didn’t, or if the new positions available appeal to you more than the last… WE WELCOME YOU.
Please read through the positions available and find what you are best suited for. Once you have decided email CColwell@oprainfall.com and put the position you are interested in for the subject.
Tips and Tricks
Do you know a series (or multiple series) inside and out? Are you the best damn gamer in the world when playing said series? Are you interested in sharing your knowledge with the masses? This position is for you if so! You can do written or video content (one or both – we don’t care). We want those of you who know a series inside and out to come share your knowledge and help our readers out!
Writing or making videos with tips and tricks for game you have totally figured out! The amount we expect per month will vary depending on how in-depth you get. We aren’t unreasonable with it though!
Do you have older systems and enjoy doing reviews? We are looking for people to give us a review or two a month on games you own for anything from the PS2 generation and back. Dust off that NES and get to work!
Gaming Throwback Thursday Responsibilities
One or two reviews monthly on “retro” games. Anything PS2 era and back can be included. We have an amazing Review Editor who will help you make your review as amazing as possible! Join our team and share your love of retro games!
Anime Throwback Thursday Responsibilities
A review or two a month on retro anime. Share your love of older anime with our readers, and tell them why they should or shouldn’t go back and watch the older anime.
Throwback Thursday Lists
Do you love all things gaming/anime that are “retro”? Do you love lists? This position is perfect for you if you said yes! Lists can include almost anything. Top X (5-10-15-20 or etc) character from NES games, Top X games from NES, SNES, PSONE … Top fighting games from ..whatever. You see where I am going with this?…
Do you LOVE finding great video game deals? We are looking for someone to scour the net in search of the best deals.This will include adding affiliate links to some, which we are not secretive about using! Everyone knows we use affiliate links to pay our server fees and keep the site running. We would like this done at least once weekly, but twice would be great.
As always, we are on the lookout for a Japanese translator. Japanese news comes in all throughout the night and we would love to be able to provide our readers with more coverage of that. Translators are given full credit for their work in each article that you translate.
Help us translate Japanese news so that we can keep our readers informed. Any amount of time you can volunteer is appreciated.
Are you a total grammar Nazi? Do you relish the thought of perfecting an article? If so we need you! Currently we are looking for people to help with news editing as well as reviews and opinions. We would love to have a news editor available throughout the day to help a few minutes here and there with news articles. Review and opinion editors editors can be available at various times. If you have even half an hour a few times a week to contribute we need you!
Help us edit at least a couple of things a week. You are only responsible for grammar and not content.
We have a new YouTube Manager who is very excited to give our YouTube channel some love. He already has some great ideas for new series that you can be involved in, and we are always open to new ideas! You will have access to help editing if needed, and you don’t need extensive history in this. Anyone with basic knowledge can apply and we can help you grow.
Are you overly opinionated? Do your friends often tell you to find an outlet for all of those opinions you have? Why not come write for us. Spare your friends from being the only ones who get to hear your ideas! Share them with the world (or at least our world).
Do you love to rant and rave about a game you just played? Are you good at explaining why you loved or hated a game? Do you enjoy breaking a game down and discussing various qualities? Then we need you to come review for us! We need people to play and review PC games, mobile games, and VN’s.
PC games vary from easy to run to difficult requiring a newer/upgraded computer.
Mobile games will be limited. We will not be reviewing every mobile game coming and going. We want to try and help people find the decent mobile games out there.
We ask for 1-2 reviews a month. You can review games you own and we can provide review codes as well.
Anyone who volunteers also has access to our already established series. You can jump in and write opinions, Building Character articles, anime reviews of current anime and etc. .. there are plenty of series around here to join in on!
We provide all the training that you will need to use our website, and on our policies and guidelines. We have editors who will work with you if you have a problem area, or worry that your grammar isn’t 100%.
Please remember all positions at Operation Rainfall are volunteer. There are many benefits to volunteering here. You can use us as a reference, on a resume, or other application. You can pad your resume with articles or videos. You can share your love of games and anime with our large audience and get feedback from them.
Operation Rainfall is about gamers providing news, reviews, opinions, and more to fellow gamers. Come join the fun! I look forward to getting your email!
