Hi all,

we need to provide a list of the angel types and shifts for team:info.

Has anyone already done that?
If not, then I'll taken care of that.

To do so, we need to define the shifts.

I suggest to start at 10 or 11am and have shifts until 8pm.
It makes sense to have two angels in every shift. At congress there's 
usually a more senior "Infodesk coordinator" who can ramp up new 
Infodesk angels and can answer questions that the normal angels can't.

Normally, both angel types are restricted because
- people like them and
- it doesn't make sense to just do a single shift because angels learn a 
lot during their shifts (making their job easier).

So, what do you think?
Shall we start at 10 or 11am?

Hello fellow orga!

we are ready to start filling the Angel system (angel.mch2022.org) with 
all your wonderful shifts that need doing.

If you are part of any team doing stuff on the field, please read this 
carefully and act accordingly. Team Volunteers is here to 'Make Camp 
Happen' and we need your help for that! Note that we're using the Angel 
system mainly for the event part, not so much of Buildup/Teardown.

Please send us one e-mail per team to volunteering at lists.mch2022.org 
(please do NOT reply to this e-mail) detailing the following:

==The Angel types==
Angel types are specific trainings/introductions that an angel needs to 
do the shift. Please be considerate with this, most Angels prefer to NOT 
follow any training.

For example: it's perfectly okay to train someone as a herald or camera 
operator, but it's not really needed to require prior training to pick 
up trash. If you want more angels, require less trained skills. 
Sometimes it might be more practical to have two untrained angels 
instead of one with specific training.
     We have already got two main angel types: the generic Angel and the 
Driver Angel. We prefer to add as few as possible.

We have a few questions to get you started on Angel types:     How do 
you become this Angel type?
Is there a specific qualification (certificate or education) the Angel 
has to have?
Who decides you can be an Angel of this type? Is it possible to create 
this Angel type from combining other Angel types?

==The Shift types==
These are the jobs that need doing. For example: Waste would be done by 
a Waste driver, who will be driving the gator around and several Waste 
Runners, who get the actual trash bags.

The shift description should also contain the info that someone needs to 
do the shift: report at location X, do work Y using tools you get from Z.

Please also specify the amount of hours the shift needs doing, and 
please aim for around 2-3 hours per shift. Sometimes 2 is okay for 
something really tough, sometimes 4 is okay for something easy and fun.

==The Shifts==

So when you've got the Angel types and the Shift types ready, we can 
start planning shifts! Be clear what you want. How many of what shift at 
what moment etc etc.

Please write to us in the following format:

Contact for us (nickname in Angel system, dect, e-mail etc):
Angel types: XXX, description: YYY
Shift types: XXX, time needed YYY, location WWW, description ZZZ
Shifts: XXX of shifttype ZZZ at time YYY, etc etc

Here's an example:

Team Waste:
Shift Type: Waste Runner. Angel type: angel. Shift from 10:00 to 13:00. 
Needs 4 people. Shift Type: Waste Driver. Angel type: drivers-license 
angel. Shift from 10:00 to 13:00. Needs 2 people.
Shift type description: Be the hero of the camp! Help us cleaning up the 
venue to make it a better place. Youre shift starts in [location] from 
where you drive around the fields. You drive around with our trash 
collector car and empty the trash bins. The golfcart/gator can be found 
at Warehouse, and they also have the stock of bin-bags. Pick up the 
trailer at the Logistics area. Empty bins, replace bags, bring the trash 
to the trash compactor here, push button X and do Y to be safe. In case 
of trouble, push emergency stop and call contact X. etc etc.
Shift Waste South Trunk: 1 waste driver, 2 waste runners. Shift form 
10:00 to 13:00. Shift Harbor + party area: 1 waste driver, 2 waste 
runners. Shift form 10:00 to 13:00.
etc etc

So, plenty of work for you! It is not difficult, so please do it now!

Thanks and see you soon!
