[pending]pur_1353801600[/pending]

 

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. Knowing some basic HTML, however, is highly encouraged as it will allow you to work on many different areas of the web 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.

 

With the upcoming Evolution of Combat update to RuneScape, a lot of information on items, monsters and various guides will need to be scrutinized and updated where needed. With your help, we can be sure our visitors will keep getting the high quality content they have come to expect.

 

Positions

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.

I just want so say for emphasis, please do not rush your application. We don't finalize the list of who will be invited until after the competition closes, it doesn't matter if your the first or last person to send it in. However, there is serious consideration of the application itself, especially if we don't know very much about you from posts on the forums we have seen, or previous submissions to the website, so at the risk of making all the crew hopefuls nervous, please do take your time when writing your answers, and also give yourself some time after you write it to walk away and do something else, and then come back and read it again before you send it to us.

 

Take your time and follow the directions :)

 

 

And with that out of the way, I want to wish all the crew hopefuls good luck, and if people have questions about being on the crew that they want to ask before they submit an application, please ask away.

looks like the EoC took a big toll on the website crew based off of the amount of positions that are opened :o

It's not that those positions are completely vacant. Various positions have room for more than one crew member.

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...

Hope anyone who is interested takes the time to apply. It is a lot of work and commitment but you make friends that transcend your time on staff. You learn skills that you can use outside of Tip.It. Overall, it’s a great experience! Put your app in if you feel you can handle the commitment. :)

^^^^^^

 

My time on Tip.It Crew has been my most memorable RuneScape experience yet! I got to meet and work with a lot of amazing people, and it was fun every step of the way (even when Dungeoneering was released and Pokemama and I wanted to claw our eyes out at all the work that had to be done.)

 

It's better to apply and not get the position, than it is to WANT it and not bother applying.

 

Good luck to everyone! :)

I would love to get back on crew again, but unfortunately due my work schedules, as well as being in the worst time zone possible, is not going to win points here for keeping up with crew work.

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!
