New Staff Application Thread

Post by Megaz0rd on Tue May 12, 2015 6:22 am

First topic message reminder :

For those of you who didn't notice, VDA is slacking in certain areas, and jobs are being left incomplete due to a lack of staff members. So we are now officially looking for more qualified members who would be willing to help VDA rise to the top again! We're going to have some somewhat high standards, and this time we're going to have prerequisites for the staff positions that must be met before application is even possible. If you are not active DO NOT APPLY.

So, we are now looking for several different levels of staff members. When applying for a position, PLEASE follow the given format, and make sure that the application is sent to me through VDA's PM system. I repeat, do NOT post a topic or make a post.

Moderators section is closed?

Hrm, I think we need a new line of moderation. (Of course you can try and relocate the old moderators to find out if they would have any interest in returning)

As head of testing, and head of recruiting i'd like any applications for those staff roles to be sent to me so I can organise them correctly, obviously an admin can overrule me if they disagree with my decisions
