To be clear, I don’t have any skin in this game anymore (I already commited to UC Davis PoliSci), but this has been on my mind and I am curious what the answer is.
I’ll get right to it - I am an admin on a Discord server of over 5,000 members. The server is themed around getting support towards members who are LGBTQ. My responsibilities include event organization, server setup, rules drafting and enforcement, and user support, to name a few. The activity takes about 2 hours a day at a minimum and involves working with the three other admins, twenty moderators (who answer to admins), as well as the other 5k members. It involves lots of leadership and discretion, plus communicating with members who are in a crisis or are otherwise having a very difficult time. You have to be a positive representation of not just the server leadership, but the LGBTQ community as a whole.
Anyways, I know this gets a lot of attention as a non-activity, and for good reasons, but backed with a good explanation of its details and impact, would this be a reasonable thing one could include on a college application as a extracurricular (or essay) or on a resume? I’m fairly certain I know what the answer is, but I am intersted to hear what other people have to say about this.
