Content In case you missed my question in the channel a few minutes ago, what do you consider the difference in roles to be between the three positions? I think that it would be useful to have the difference(s) clarified so that we can more effectively organize ourselves.

Content This is partly up to anyone interested in the Administrative division, but in these early stages we can use some rough definitions, I'm sure.

Archivists: Responsible for updating division pages, converting research materials, communications and so on into documented pages, and so on. Researchers: People who are actively researching a particular field, either by theorizing, analyzing, or both and more. Contributors: I included this category in case there are some who want to be involved in various divisions, but in a non-research capacity. Sponsors, organizers, and cross-divisional work (such as contributing to a research division by supplying material) could all fall under this category.
