    EvilSeph Retired Staff

    About one month ago we asked you, the community, for individuals to step forward to offer their time to help the community, and/or help maintain the BukkitDev system. We've had an overwhelming response to this call which just goes to show the dedication of the community. Since then, we've added 6 new faces to our staff and we're at the point where we feel we have enough for now.

    However, our application process is an open-ended system, and whenever we need new staff we will be looking through applications received for those willing and able. So if you feel you would be willing to help, you are welcome to submit your application now, or at any time in the future.

    We'd like to thank you for your show of support for this community, as it does make us proud to have so many willing volunteers. So thank you, and we look forward to working with some of you in the future.

  5. You made me sad T.T.
    No i'm just kidding.

    I sent in my application a while ago, but there's been no response.
    I'm just wondering: Are you going to respond to applications or just leave them hanging?

    Here you go:
    I'll see if the admins will personalize each message. However, in the meantime, anyone who wishes to get a personalized rejection message from me can reply to this thread. I will try to keep it unique for each.

  7. The thing is we aren't rejecting anyone, we're just keeping the applications in store in case we ever need more staff.

    So I suppose in a way, you could say it's leaving you hanging, as we still can go back and pick an old application up for a new position.
  8. [offtopic] personalized rejection, made me giggle. [/offtopic]

    I'm glad you found some suitable staff!
  9. THANKS A LOT >.>

    @NuclearW is correct though, we have just reached capacity for now. Old applications will be revisited, as well as new applications will be evaluated when more staff is needed.
  11. @TnT are you guys going to make it more of a 'private affair' next time you are looking for staff?
    Since I think some people got high hopes for staff position... evidently.
    Maybe it would be better to announce it in Bukkit+?
    That said, there are plenty of eligible members that don't have access to the Bukkit+ section.

    Yes, I think reject messages would help a lot of people so you guys won't get spammed with "DID U GET MY APPLICASHUN>?!L>!L!" in this thread or PM's/profiles.

    I doubt it will be as public as this was, but I do not know how private it will be. It was a wake up call, for me at least. I realized I didn't know enough people in the community well enough to recommend them for the position as I had in the past. My recommendations may not always be accepted, but at least I knew enough people to be able to make those recommendations. This made it clear to me that I wasn't spending enough time in this community, which I am trying to change.

    I know a few members had high hopes of becoming staff. It was a very tough decision as we got many really good applications. We simply did not have enough positions to hire any more.

  14. @TnT the staff do a great job, it takes something special to manage a community with 148,770 members :D
  15. Will the old applications have priority in picking a new moderator, or will the new ones have priority?
  16. What about those of us (like me) who submitted art. Will we receive any feedback?
  17. I wouldn't imagine anyone would take priority.

    What if Notch applied.... I bet they would look at that first.

    @tips48, your application was a joy to read, however as we are at capacity we must deny you at this time. The picture of the 7 legged spider you sent in was nice, however, a picture of an 8 legged spider would have gone a lot further.

    The links to furry porn did you in I'm afraid. We were already aware of those links, so couldn't give you any credit for including them. ;)

    *waits for the inevitable flood of porn links with all new applications* You're welcome admins. :D

  26. Next time I'll censor it. I promise.

    EDIT: unless you like furry porn?

    All we will say is you didn't include any NEW links for us.

    I can't speak to all the member preferences for porn. We have interesting team members. :)

  28. I have a question, can one still post nominations for Community Staff? If so, would they go here or in the other thread?
  29. Looking at you're avatar, I would have a guess that you like Pig porn, assuming I'm correct, now I need to find out what gets the rest of the team hot.

    EDIT: ChrizC likes dinosaurs.
  30. Are my sensing sabotage?
