The Heart is the "right hand" to the Head of Ajah. They are the second admin for the Ajah and the one the site admins will go to should anything happen with the Head of Ajah (such as an unexpected leave of absence or unexpected loss of contact). They are a person who should be there to help encourage the members of the Ajah. While we all do this, the Heart is the central person responsible for boosting morale. They will serve, along with The Tea Brewer, as moderator for our forums and temporary Head when the First Weaver is away or unable to get to the computer. They will start "Happy Birthday" and "Congratulations" threads and parties where and when appropriate, as well as rotate with the Tea Brewer when convenient in sending "Happy Birthday" PMs to the rest of the community. They will attempt to stay in contact with as many Yellows as possible, especially those who are not posting much, to make sure that they are all well. They will help serve as part of the First Weaver's eyes-and-ears network, and they are the go-to person if there is something going on within the Ajah that you don't feel comfortable coming to the First Weaver about. They will send written reports to the First Weaver monthly, around the 30th of every month, to keep her updated on the goings-on within the Ajah, through the firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail. If something comes up that the Heart feels is urgent, they will let the First Weaver know right away.
Rotation: 6 months - April through October.

The Tea Brewer acts as a mentor for our guests. Each guest may have questions about Yellow policies or practices and may not feel able to post them in a public forum. They are only a PM away and so acts as a guide on their guesting journey. They will assign each new Yellow Aspirant a Big Sister as a personal mentor who will be available to guide the Aspirant through their journey to the Shawl. They will also take turns with the Heart in sending "Happy Birthday" PMs to the rest of the community. One of three moderators of the Yellow Halls, they will take over the Heart's and the Cultivator's duties if they are unavailable for any reason. They will send written reports on a quarterly basis and keep the guesting spreadsheet updated.
Rotation: 6 months - April through September.

Two Sitter positions are available to each Ajah and company, open only to Aes Sedai and Gaidin. People wishing to be a Sitter should have adequate time to get to know as many members as possible. When someone comes up for raising in the Hall and you don't know them, you should be willing and able to do a post search for them and determine whether you think they are appropriate for raising. You vote on those being raised to Novice/Recruit, Accepted/Soldier and Aes Sedai/Gaidin, as well as participate in discussions regarding membership issues. A Sitter should be someone who is able to be objective in her decision making. Whether you have a personal grudge against, or a strong feeling toward someone is insubstantial and inconsequential. You have to be objective in voting for someone to be raised to the next level, whether they deserve it, no matter your personal feelings on the subject.

The Cultivator is in charge of keeping track of Junior Members of both levels. They watch the threads in the Tavern and the Garden and keep us informed of who is interested in which Ajah. The Cultivator will work with Yellow Aspirants in order to be able to track people with an interest in the Yellow Ajah, getting to know them through observation so as to better prepare for their possible arrival. They will also send "Congratulations" PMs to newly raised Junior Members.
Rotation: 6 months - April through October.
