How to join as Community Builders at RTI INDIA

All you need to do is to log on to main RTI INDIA portal here and go to settings > Permission Groups and click on Community Builders. The direct link to the permission group is here!

How do we select Community Builders The application goes to our Super Moderators for review. The primary criterion for us to select you as community builder is 'Need'. If we do not require new team members, obviously your application shall not be approved or not processed. Please remember that at any given point of time we have 100's of application pending with us, and unfortunately we cannot guarantee if at all your application shall be accepted and also we cannot let you know how much time it shall take.

The criterion broadly followed by your Super Moderator's is as follows:

  • Your number of posts
  • Your daily activity and presence
  • Your way of posting, whether it is helpful to the new users or not
  • Your understanding of various sections of RTI website like blogs, directory, Docs, Guide, Mobile applications etc.

As a community builders, you are not expected to know a lot about RTI. Your participation and eagerness to help others is the primary benchmark and philosophy.

Once your application is received, all team members are notified and they silently monitor the performance of yours. It may not be of any use to publically post about non action of your application, rather we feel it vitiate the very atmosphere for which the CBU's have been posted. The work of CBU is positive but it's not a game or absolute leisure activity. This big responsibility you wish to undertake requires a lot of patience and perseverance in answering repetitive and nagging queries sometime and we expect that this major characteristic be reflected from each of your posts at forum from day one.

We hope to see you soon as part of our Team :)
