    Hey TF2maps, so it's come to me and the rest of the TF2maps Moderators attention that it's a been a bit quiet on our front and quite a few of us have become rather inactive (myself included) and grown apart from the community in recent months. So, In light of that we're opening up a few positions on the site staff team to replace those who will be stepping down and to help breath new life into the team.

    What we expect from members of our team I feel is best summed up by one of our ex Site Admins DJive here in the spoiler below:
    So if you feel like you're interested in helping moderate, maintain, improve and expand the site and community, please post below stating your interest. In your post, please leave preferred form of contact and send me, theharribokid, a PM (Direct link) on why you'd like to join the site staff team, what you feel you'll bring to the team and site. Please also state if you have any previous moderation experience and any other skills that you feel could benefit the site and community.

    I guess I prefer Steam PM if I'm online, email if I'm not. What else needs including here?

    With my immense wealth of minerals as well as swagger, I would be honored to lead my kingdom forth beneath a banner emblazoned with a multicolored array of anthropomorphic dicks.

    Contact me via Steam or paypal if you would like to make a campaign contribution.

    I guess i'm interested. Steam PM is probably better, but i guess forum PM is easier with time zones and whatnot.

    This thread is a serious request for applications; I highly recommend that you treat it as such.


    @Doom, no, not right off the bat.

    youre the reason we need new mods

    ~Infraction for Insulting a member, and a member of the staff at that. It's unacceptable. Either talk to me or any other member of the Site Staff if you have an issue with one of us and we'll discuss it. Keep your insults out of our community, be it here or the steam chat. - theharribokid

    E: editing out my pointing out that it was obviously a joke is very cute :]

    The subsequent infraction pertaining to the above comment by Sel has been reversed and was due to us both making edits within a minute of each other, the proposed "editing out" by me was as follows:

    - theharribokid

    _____________________________________________________________
    Also, we really need more server staff more than we need more mods imo. (like I guess there's obviously overlap, but the site itself seems to be fine for the most part?)

    I seriously doubt you're joking. If you want to go ahead and complain how bad I may or may not have been, you can PM me here on the forums.

    It was decided to condense all the staff into just the overarching "Site staff" title since the server is more/less self sustaining now (it's all fancy and the like).

    To be honest it was obvious to me he was joking. I don't think anyone can really complain too much about your contributions

    If you want to keep this thread clean by the way you may want to split the off-topic responses into their own thread

    It should be noted: that once (if) you become site staff you will not receive a medal for being site staff right away.

    EDIT: While I hope that you aren't applying for that reason. If you are, I just wanted to make it clear.

    To be frank, why should you get admin over veterans in this community. How do we know you're trustworthy? How do we know you'll contribute to the community?

    I think it'd be smarter to interact more with the community, like joining group chat, playing in gamedays, and posting in the forums, so we get to know you before you make any move to get admin. Because at this point, I've not noticed you in chat or gamedays once.
