- selecting, configuring, and keeping third-party software up to date
- implementing custom themes, features, and bugfixes for the community's benefit
- as needed, escalating issues to the developers of IP.Board and other third-parties whose software we use, and working with them to reproduce and resolve issues
- build integrations with other Poniverse communities whenever the opportunity arises

- knowledge of Git, SSH, and basic *nix terminal skills (we version-control our code and you'll be watching over MLPF's Linux servers)
- knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, and CSS - or willingness to learn them
- willingness to take IP.Board by the horns, master its featureset and codebase, bend it into submission, and build great things for the community with it (check out their developer docs:
