Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 25 ‘World Savers Wanted™’ Part II
World Savers Wanted™ works on the same principles as any other online agency. You complete a questionnaire, upload a current image of yourself and pay an annual membership fee.
Once your application is processed, World Savers Wanted™ will seek to match your profile with the most appropriate tasks contained in its vast and ever-increasing database.
A similar principle applies if you have some work for a superhero to do. Once the registration process is complete, you are free to upload your superhero task request. Your task request is offered to the most appropriate superheroes and they then choose to accept the task or not.
Feedback is given on the completion of each task, whether successful or otherwise, and as you gain more and more positive feedback, so you become eligible to receive more and more difficult task requests. In this way the system always hopes to match the right hero to the right task.
World Savers Wanted™ allows you to define your choice of tasks by selecting from a drop-down menu. Falcon Boy had ambitiously registered himself and Bewilder Bird in the ‘Heroic Duo Seeking to Save the World’ section but as you can imagine, they hadn’t yet accumulated enough positive feedback to be eligible for that category. Not that Falcon Boy was in any way perturbed.
‘Ambition is one of the many things that I wish to be known for,’ said Falcon Boy ambitiously to his friend. ‘Without ambition, you have no real desire to do things,’ he concluded grandly.
Bewilder Bird silently nodded as usual. Falcon Boy opened his inbox again.
Thank you for recently registering with World Savers Wanted™. Your application has now been approved and you are now eligible to be matched with tasks that require superheroic attention.
Please note that you will only be sent task requests appropriate to your feedback status. Your current feedback status is ‘Cat Rescuer’.
If you have any questions please refer to our FAQ page.
Alternatively, you can contact us on our premium rate telephone number, where one of our advisers will be happy to help you.
We hope that you have a long and successful career with World Savers Wanted™ but if no task requests are received within the space of one calendar year, we guarantee to return your half of your registration fee.

‘You won’t be sending half of my fee back,’ said Falcon Boy to himself.
