Hi, My name is Ryan 'Diage' Farina. I am currently the lead developer and designer of what is currently a three man team. I am formally trained and looking to start to expand our group of developers. About our project: The current project we are working on has been in the works for a couple of months now. The project is something we hope will become a staple for any mini-game server out there and help to increase multi-server communication and cooperation through a more standardized play experience. The technique by which we plan to do this is to create a plugin that allows for the easy creation of any mini-game or arena imaginable. Our current system is at a testable, albeit very alpha, state. To go a little deeper into what it does, it allows a user to download objects, conditions, classes, items, or any number of content which can be simply added to any arena they are making. Then an owner or otherwise verified user can either edit existing arenas or create a whole new one from scratch, and do so never leaving the game. Listed below are the roles I am looking for: Arena Creation Testers: No more than four We are at a testable state and therefore need testers. These people should probably have a mild ability to create arenas with world edit or sniper and be responsible users of these tools. The only difference between these testers and other testers is that they will be given the opportunity to use sniper and world edit. Since we have not yet built in permissions, everyone can technically make arenas. As an Arena Creation Tester, you will be expected to actually produce arenas and to provide feedback that will help future development. Requirements: Knowledge of sniper and/or world edit. To be responsible and objective.Capable of reasonable oral and written communication. Required Applications:Minecraft (Duh)SkypeTeam SpeakPreferences:EST time zone Arena Play Testers: Any number The second group of testers are only expected to test the arenas made by the arena creation testers. Their primary jobs will be to test existing objects and to provide feedback for improvement to some of the more standard parts of the plugin. Things they will help us test are basically team interactions, arena interactions, and the game as seen from a standard player. You are expected to act as if you are a brand new player to the server and to help us understand what these players would like to experience. Requirements:To be responsible and objective.Required Applications:Minecraft (Duh)SkypeTeam SpeakPreferences:None Programmers One to two As a programmer, you will come in and expand our team. My current goal is to restructure the current development team and to pass off my Lead Development role (maintaining the lead designer), but in order to do this we need more people. You need not be formally trained. Your only requirement is that you be an analytic thinker, hard worker, and willing to learn. As a team of people, I intend to expand our work beyond minecraft and java in general. So people who are interested in a wide array of practices are preferred. The current group has been trained, to some extent, by me. I am willing to help people who will work well within our team. If you are hoping to be a part of the programming team, I will ask that you take a couple of tests and answer some questions so I can try to learn more about you. Requirements:Work well within a small team.To be responsible and objective.Competent in technical problem solving.Willing to learn and accepts feedback.Capable of reasonable oral and written communication. Ability to research answers to difficult problems.EST Time zone.Required Applications/Accounts:Minecraft (Duh)SkypeTeam SpeakTeam ViewerEclipseGoogle AccountGithub AccountPreferences:Knowledge of Java 7 APIKnowledge of Bukkit API To apply.... Simply respond on this thread with the position you are interested in. Please note that if you are interested in a Programmer but we do not choose you, you can still become a tester and be available for future additions to the team. Along that note, all testers are able to be considered for addition to the team if they seem fit and motivated.
