Sparks are expected to help keep conversation alive and polite within the Discord, and to do so by example. Ask people about their worlds and encourage them to share their work and comment on others'. Sparks are not expected to moderate problem users in the Discord—that is the job of the Moderation Team.
All Sparks are expected to take the Anvil Assistant role and work to understand the website and its functionality so that they can help clear up any confusion.
are non-contest challenges that anyone can put forth to the community but which are typically organized by staff. While Lightning Challenges aren't a requisite aspect of being a Spark, they are a great tool for the Spark to use in encouraging people to worldbuild.
As an extension of Discord Engagement, keep an eye on ongoing spotlights, engage them, and encourage others to join in by politely encouraging them over from the general channels should they express an interest in hearing about worlds and such.
While Sparks are not full Staff, they still enjoy an inside look inside of the inner machinations of the Royal Court, and thus get to weigh in on upcoming matters. They are an honored user.
