The roles listed below are all roles within Viki's Contribution Community.
The rules listed below span across all roles within Viki's Contribution Community.
- Do not discourage members from participating in your Channel, or on Viki.
- Do not "blacklist" community members.
- Do not delete comments unless they do not follow Community Guidelines.
A Channel Manager (CM) is the main leadership role within the Viki team structure. Channel Managers are the major decision makers who make sure the channel is being run smoothly.
They are in charge of promoting the channel, recruiting staff, delegating tasks, overseeing the channel, keeping it active, working towards completion, and making sure the Community Guidelines are followed at all times. To assist in the Viki goal "to remove the language and cultural barriers which stand between great entertainment and fans,” the Channel Manager should facilitate translation from the source language to as many other languages as quickly as is reasonably possible.
There are three types of moderators: English Moderators, All Language Moderators, and Other Language Moderators. Overall, Moderators must be current and active on Viki. They should be willing to provide quality contributions to the community and be a vital player with their teammates. It is important for Moderators to be regularly available for the entire run of a series and recruit any other team members as needed.
How to use the Segment timer
Segmenters lay the foundation for subtitles by cutting a video into timed compartments. Good segments are the basis for good subtitles, so it is important to learn how to accurately cut segments before working on an on-air project (see the Ninja Academy Segmenting Guide for segmenting guidelines).
Within a channel, there are two main types of segmenters: the general segmenter and the Chief Segmenter. General segmenters are responsible for segmenting the videos, while Chief Segmenters are responsible for overseeing the team.
