It's that time again, when we realize we're rather short handed and a large number of staff members are too busy to really volunteer our time as much as we'd like here! You may have noticed! So that said, we are now actively looking for staff members to add to our roster! Interested? Well slow your roll, check out these responsibilities we generally are looking for in a new staff member first: Helping run/ announce imp tests on the server when available to do so Helping with moderating the forums and discord Helping moderate the server, stepping in when necessary to lay down the law Be active in helping members of the community, and able to represent the site in a positive manner here as well as elsewhere Be creative and interested in helping shape the future of TF2Maps Be willing and able to discuss difficult and complex situations from a rational and level headed place Be interested in helping run events and contests This isn't a definitive list, we're generally just looking for motivated and dedicated members who are interested in making a positive impact on the site. Mapping skill is not a necessary trait, but it certainly is useful when it comes to helping other members of the site with their problems. In addition to a regular staff member, we're also on the lookout for a technical staff member to bring onto the crew. Some skills we're on the lookout for: Knowing your way around a linux console Server management skills (plugins, configs, etc) Experience with web servers, php, mysql Willingness to be available to handle server related issues, especially around big events Desire and motivation to help shape the front end as well as the back end of TF2Maps Creative ideas for features on the site or servers (not necessary, but a plus!) We're in pretty dire need of someone in this role to help maintain the site and game servers, so if you don't fit the above, but know of someone who might, feel free to pass this along to them. If either or both of these roles sound like something you'd be interested in doing, post here stating your interest with a bit on why you want the position. Nothing formal, just let us know what you are willing to bring to the table. If you've applied before and were not accepted, feel free to apply again!
