Tip.It's Website Crew is currently looking for enthusiastic members to join the team! The Crew is a team of volunteers dedicated to the upkeep of the main help-site. If you've ever had an interest in being a part of it all, or think you have any skills that could make the site even better, you're looking in the right place! The Crew has many available positions each requiring very different skills and interests, there's something for everyone. Before applying, you should know a little bit about how the Crew works. It is important to not glamour a position up, as one may find the Crew was not how they expected it would be when they applied.

 

First off, Tip.It is non-profit organization - All staff positions here are entirely voluntary. Those putting their time into the site are working purely for the bettering of Tip.It. If accepted, you will be required to make somewhat of a commitment to put enough time into your position and in-game research whenever necessary. Crew Training and Crew Work requires time to accomplish and without this commitment, you will not be able to meet deadlines and work as a team.

 

Secondly, although web design, coding or mapping skills are an asset, lacking them will not stop us from welcoming you aboard. We can teach you what you need to know, so our only request is you have a willing attitude to learn whatever interests you and time to spend on the site.

 

The Crew is very close with the rest of the Staff, and as a Crewbie you will have the opportunity to meet and work with all existing staff to help better the site. Overall, the Crew is a fantastic social and learning experience, and definitely a worthy investment of time.

 

Positions

 

These are the various positions waiting to be filled within the Crew and the skills involved. Note that as a Crewbie, while your position will determine the focus of your work, you will always have the chance to branch out into other areas whenever you want.

REMEMBER - Just be yourself. Trying to appear different simply to impress us will probably not make matters better. You won't be the same 'false self' all the time. Take your time with your application; they are not being run on a first come, first served basis. Each and every application will be reviewed by the current Crew members and the Admin team. We consider applications very carefully, and even if you are declined, we may still contact you at a later date asking if you still want to join the crew.

 

 

We are looking forward to reading your applications! :) If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or post on this topic. Do not post your application here.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Good luck to you guys. Don't feel disheartened if you don't know coding or a avid Quester or Boss Hunter, I didn't know a damn thing about coding or Bosses but in Crew you'll get to learn it all from patient fellow Crewbies who're happy to help out. :thumbup:

I recall, I think correctly, that one may have two positions at once, right? So my EP status would not be affected by my applying and receiving/not receiving a position in the crew...

 

Doing it. :shades: Application time!
