Nashville Community Leader Application

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Nashville Community Leader. Please fill out this application, giving us as many details about your qualifications as you can. Put your best foot forward, this is like your resume for a job. These are the steps that the application process will follow: 
  1. Complete and submit the application below. You should receive confirmation that this completed successfully. 
  2. Your application will be presented to the current Community Leaders for consideration. They will review your site and your application then cast their vote. This step takes approximately a week. Results of the vote will be emailed to you. 
  3. If you are accepted, your name will be given to the Nashville Training Coordinator so that you can be enrolled in the next available training class. You will be emailed the necessary information. The training takes about 2 weeks and will be accomplished via email and the web. 
  4. Upon your successful completion of the training class, you will be recommended to the Nashville Liaison for admittance to the CL program. 


Community Leaders may be exposed to pornography, excessive profanity, and hatred against racial, ethnic and religious groups. This job is not to be taken lightly, it may take up 15 or more hours per week. If you are under the age of 18 we ask that you apply to the Nashville Jr. Community Leader Program.
  • Monitor specific blocks in your neighborhood (as specified by the Co-Liaison). You'll be looking for great sites, which you'll be able to nominate for the Best of Nashville Program; pages that don't meet the content guidelines, which you'll report to Yahoo! Geocities.
  • Act as a liaison between your neighbors. Your member name and e-mail address will be posted in a prominent place within the neighborhood, so everyone will know whom to contact if they have questions or problems. We encourage members to think of you as their primary resource, for everything from HTML problems to content guidelines to neighborhood themes. 
  • You also are required to  join one of Nashville's committees or become a mentor. 
  • Keep your own home page fresh and lively. If we're holding you out as leaders of the community, your own site should be a showcase. It doesn't have to be completely whiz-bang (although your fellow Community Leaders may be able to help you jazz it up), but it should be updated at least once a week. And it MUST conform to our content guidelines and to the theme of the Nashville neighborhood. If you're not sure if yours does, e-mail the Nashville Liaison for feedback. 
  • Recruit and nominate new Community Leaders by refering those who you think qualify to the Community Leader Application. You will also be asked to vote on applicants. 
  • You will be responsible for communicating with your fellow community leaders via email and in the CL Forum regarding Nashville neighborhood Business. In addition, please notify the Nashville Liaison when any change in your email address occurs. 
  • Probably some other things we haven't thought of yet, but we'll let you know when we do.
Problems? Questions? E-mail the Nashville Liaison. 


Before applying, make sure your site conforms to all Yahoo! GeoCities
Page Content Guidelines. Most frequent violations include using advertising banners that are not approved. This includes the Page Count banners that have a banner underneath a counter. The only sponsorship banners approved for Yahoo! GeoCities are the GeoGuide and Internet Link Exchange. You will not be approved if your page violates any of the content guidelines.

Please be sure to input your correct url and membername. Incorrect url or membername submissions will be removed from consideration. Also, we are considering your answer on this application about age to be truthful. If at any later time it is found out that your answer to age on this application was false you will be removed from the CL program and will not be allowed to reapply. We also ask that any new homesteader in the Nashville neighborhood refrain from signing up to become a Community Leader for at least a month after they move in. This will give you time to get your homepage up and running.
