    Managing Editors are responsible for whole-of-portal development. They set the pace for content creation and community development, market their portals, mediate staff and user disputes, and generally ensure that their respective portals grow and thrive. If staff members fail to meet established objectives, Managing Editors step in to ensure that portal-wide goals are met.


    Managing Editors are entitled to a third of portal-generated income. Moreover, they are not responsible for the costs of server and domain rental, site maintenance, external advertising, technical challenges, site security, installing software, handling backend responsibilities, etc. Thus, it is possible for MEs to profit without financial risk. That said, they will also be held accountable to their responsibilities. With incentives come expectations.

    Note: All current MEs have declined compensation or declined advertising. However, this incentive is available, if desired.


    As a Managing Editor, you will be fully responsible for developing, staffing, and managing a portal for a gaming title of your choosing. Stratics has a history of working closely with gaming developers, so the ability to network is also encouraged. Managing Editors are senior staff members with "Administrator" badges. As such, this position requires irreproachable fairness, professionalism, and responsibility. Stratics has over 100 active staff members, only six of which are MEs. Ideal candidates should have a passion for gaming, possess excellent writing and communication skills, have advanced knowledge of the gaming industry, and be dedicated to making Stratics the best gaming destination on the Internet.

    A more comprehensive assessment of a Managing Editor's expectations are available upon request.


    • Must be 18 years of age or older
    • Outstanding writing skills
    • Extensive knowledge of the game that you represent
    • Excellent verbal and social skills
    • Experience with basic HTML & CSS
    • Experience with WordPress, editing programs, or Youtube a plus, but not required
    Current Needs

    We have Managing Editor vacancies at the following portals:

    If you think you would be interested in this position, please PM or email me: [email protected]. Not sure you can commit to everything above? We also have volunteer vacancies available at all existing portals! Just send me an email and I'll contact the appropriate Managing Editor.

    Best of luck!
