Last week we announced that we were going to be temporarily closing staff applications to make some much-needed improvements to the system and how it operates. I'm glad to announce that we have now finished making those changes, and staff applications have reopened. These past few days, we have made many changes to both the application and interview processes which will be explained later in the post. Before submitting an application, it is mandatory that you read over our new Staff Application Format thread. We also recommend reading over our Staff Application Tips and Staff Application Examples threads. These three threads will show you the requirements for applying, tips when applying, and examples of what your application should and shouldn't look like.
The first change that we have made is when and how applications will be reviewed. From now on, we will only be reviewing staff applications on the 1st and 16th of every month. We will be doing this to ensure that we don't deny anyone for having too many staff, and so that we can provide more meaningful feedback on each of the applications that are denied. It will also help us when we are recruiting new staff members onto the team and it also ensures that we can train everyone properly at the same time.
The second change that has been made is the changes to the Staff Application Format thread. On that thread, we have updated information about how the application and interview process works, the new requirements and rules for applying as well as a new format that you must use when creating your application threads.
The last change we have made is to the interview process. We will be conducting interviews after we review all applications from the application stage. Once all of the interviews have been completed, we will be announcing and accepting those who passed the interview stage at the same time. We have also made a few adjustments to who will be reviewing applications and interviews.
As always, we are looking for feedback regarding these changes and will be available to chat over on our Discord which can be found here. All of these changes are not final and may be adjusted or removed over the next few weeks. We hope to see you on the server for our first UHC game back which will be today at 7:00 PM EST.
