Sponsorship of WaxhawHistory.com is for those individuals, organizations, and businesses in the community that don’t wish to have a short running advertisement on the front page, and want to be recognized as helping this site function day in and day out.  The investment is minimal, and the return is big in satisfaction in knowing you’re helping this site continue, as well as a “Sponsored By” logo placed on our About Us page.  You will also be able to place a bio, about us, or other such page linked in the sponsor section (how you got here) for others to see.

The REQUIREMENTS of sponsorship are as follows:

  1. A link is placed on your companies website supporting WaxhawHistory.com, with the link back to this website, in one of the first 2 layers of pages, and on any “Links” page.
  2. There is no set contribution for becoming a sponsor, anything helps, but please bear in mind that with your contribution going not only for site upgrades, it also goes towards the work of placement of your logo or picture, not to exceed 150 x 150 px in size (Larger logos/pictures may be placed at additional cost).  You will also be allowed to write a ~1,000 character description to go along with your logo/image (if it’s 1,100 characters I’ll still accept it).  This may be edited up to 3 times after the final draft, per year.  Additional edits are at time/cost per edit.

That’s a lot, but a little for what you get.  Additional contributions will gladly be accepted, and credit as a discount on on-site ads, as well as discounts from some of the other sponsors as a sponsor family member.  If you are interested, please feel free to contact me, Jeffrey Johnston, at admin@waxhawhistory.com and include “Sponsorship” in the subject heading, or fill out the form below.

Apply to become a WaxhawHistory.com Administrator

We are always looking for smiling faces to help around WaxhawHistory.com!  There is no monetary pay, but the satisfaction of help others learn about the Waxhaw Area, it’s history, and history making events makes up for any lack in dollars.  There is no set time requirement, however it is requested that you do allow for some commitment of time to the task as permitted.  Here are the descriptions of what each position entails:

  • Border Administrator – helps the lead administrator, Jeffrey Johnston, in the upkeep and running of the backend of the site, aids the forum administrators in maintaining a safe environment which all can enjoy, and offers technical assistance to the forum administrators as needed.  It requires more advanced knowledge of computers, and the administrator should have a basic understanding of Linux, WordPress, Shortcodes, and related items.  I will be willing to work with a technically adept person who does not meet all the requirements, should they be willing to learn and ask questions.
  • Forum Administrator – helps keep the forum safe from spam, answer users questions on forum operation, do forum “house cleaning”, and keep the forums alive.  The requirements I’m looking for here is administrators that are outgoing, socially friendly, yet not afraid to step in when needed.  Technical requirements are best suited towards individuals who have at least a basic understanding of computers, and are willing to learn now, and as new technologies are migrated into the site.
  • Historians – this is best suited for ANYONE who loves the areas history and can access the site.  Their main focus is to make sure information is accurate, answer questions, and provide new information to the site through research, or on a tidbit by tidbit fashion.

I am pretty open to training any position so long as you have the passion to learn, desire to contribute, and are interested in the Waxhaw Area.  If you’d like to be considered (no obligations or contracts), tell me a little about yourself in the form below and we can talk!  Thanks, Jeffrey Johnston

We are excited you are interested in helping us out, but you must first be a registered member in order to apply for these positions.
