NovaRO Staff Application
Over the years, we at NovaRO have formed a small but solid team of staff members in order to help you with various in-game matters and assist you on the forums. We are always working to improve our players' game experience to be the best it can be. With this same goal in mind we are once again looking to expand our GM family. The application is open to all interested players that fulfill our age requirement. Prior experience is not necessary but robust knowledge of the game -- or at least enthusiasm for learning as much as possible about it -- is.
- Game Master
At present our primary focus centers on finding people to answer questions in both of our #support channels. As a Game Master, it would be ideal if you also were willing to engage with the development team and aid us with testing official and custom content. While the general GMship is the only position we currently seek to fill, if you have other talents that you think would be great boons to our server, don't be afraid to apply for positions that we do not specify. Remember your tasks are unlikely to be limited to only one, so it would be of great benefit if you are naturally interested in donning many different hats. For example, quest writing and event hosting are things every GM is able to do on the side if they wish.
Kindly note that being staff is classified as volunteer work. Please do not expect monetary reimbursement from being on the team.
Before you proceed with the application, be sure to read the rest of this post thoroughly, and post any questions you have in this thread before you begin filling in your answers.
RULES & REQUIREMENTS
You will have to be at least of age 19 in order for your application to be considered.
All applications must be filled out in their entirety.
Do not leave any fields empty. While we understand that some questions may seem difficult or tedious to answer, we ask that you fill each field to the best of your ability. Please aspire to use full sentences, proper punctuation and capitalization and avoid abbreviations.
Applications must be filled out in English.
While most of our staff members are multi-lingual, the server's primary language remains English. Your English does not have to be perfect but we consider that your application reflects your fluency in this language.
Any applications filled out improperly will not be considered.
As we process a large number of applications, it would be a huge task to contact each individual player regarding errors or omissions. Please double-check your application before you send it to us.
Please do not send multiple applications, or ask about the current application status.
You will be notified of our final decision once we are ready to do so. Recruitment is a lenghty process and we will reply to everyone in due time.
Do not post applications in this thread. They will be deleted, and you will be immediately disqualified.
This would only indicate you have not paid attention to our requirements, and this just doesn't do.
HOW TO APPLY
Copy and paste the application found in the spoiler tag of this post, along with your answers into a message via THIS LINK.
You can remove the comments in small font without any worry. The actual answer length is completely up to your discretion; your replies may be elaborate, consice, or something in-between.
Please BOLD your answers to make your application easier for us to read.
You can do this easily by highlighting your answer, then pressing Ctrl + B.
Keep the rest of your message clean and default.
This is basically us asking you to avoid burning our eyes with crazy colors. Creative formatting will get you attention, but not necessarily the kind you want if you want to be seriously considered. We don't want your formatting to detract our attention away from what you're saying.
Use the appropriate title for your message. The format should be [Position you are applying for] Application - [Player Name].
