Introduction
This is basically a consolidation of all the previous sticked threads in this section. Read it, before you post any application.

Rules
  • No flaming.
  • No personal attacks.
  • No slandering.
  • No spamming.
  • No overdoing of jokes.
  • No flippant applications.
  • No extreme color use.

Disclaimer
Here's a list of reasons why you most probably won't get selected for the job, just to lower your morale. Go ahead and apply after reading this. Just be warned and beware. Leave and come back after you fulfilled the requirements stated, otherwise continue reading.
  • You're relatively unknown
  • You don't know much about the server
  • You've a low post count

Requirements
- Good understanding of the English language
- Ability to stay neutral and provide neutral feedback
- Good knowledge of the game (InfinityMU) and its custom features
- Ability to dedicate at least 10 hours a week to the job
- Hosting a minimum of 4 events a week

Please do not post your application within your first two weeks of joining the Infinity community. Also, do not apply for the spot if you have a very low post count, especially if the application is one of your first through fifth posts. Not encouraging spam here though.

Gripes
Congratulations for meeting the above requisites. Now there's more. Here are some things that irritate and lower your chances at success. Read them, and memorize them well. This list will slowly dissect mentioned issues, take your time to read them.

I've been a GM on other servers: A common reason, or rather "qualification". Please do note the inverted commas. Nobody cares for the experience in those servers. Here, this is a different community, a different server. Commands, NPCs, players' needs and wants. They're all different. So please do not use your experience in other servers to justify yourself. Besides, if you have obtained GM status there, why are you applying for the job here? It just shows your lack of devotion, a definite negative for you.

I can help players by answering their queries: Everyone else can do that. Have you seen players aid each other through megaphones? You don't have to be a GM to help others. So please do the necessary.

Post count: 1 This is a relatively tricky one. Although a low post count does not necessarily mean inactivity, a single digit post count should show your lack of activeness. You could have been one of the most active players in-game but your lack of awareness about the forums will dampen your chances. The fact is that most updates are posted here, so I'll advice you to go get yourself some posts and establish yourself before posting the application. Of course, you do so without spam.

Prohibitions
These are stuff you must avoid. Irregardless of whether you took notice of the previous few points. Of utmost importance, consider your chances nullified and voided. Don't bother coming here again, if you ignore this. You'll only ruin whatever repute you already have.

These are "DO NOTs", so don't get yourself the wrong idea.
  • Post an application that is your 1st - 5th post.
  • Insult or ridicule.
  • Worthless self-promotion via bashing.
  • Poor grammar.
  • Arrogance + Poor personality.
  • Make empty promises.
  • Copy and paste an application from another server.

FAQ
Q: What is expected of me as a GM?
A: As a GM you do not only host events. Although it can be a big part of the job, the main priority of being a GM is to communicate the players needs to the rest of the staff, to improve the overall experience of the game. Events are just there for entertainment purposes, and provide something different from the regular grinds that are already set in game. We expect that you are creative enough to think of different type of events to mix things up, and that you are aware of the requirements listed above.

Q: What is expected of me as a EM?
A: As a EM you do only host events to improve the overall experience of the game. We expect that you are creative enough to think of different type of events to mix things up, and that you are aware of the requirements listed above.

Q: Do I get paid?
A: You get paid on a monthly basis with Uber Items.

Q: What kind of powers do I get?
A:
Forums & Discord: GM status with ability to warn / kick / ban / moderator powers.

In-game: ban, DC, skins/invisible, godmode, teleport, trace, global messages, event rewards

Forums & Discord: EM status with ability to warn / moderating powers.
In-game: Warn, DC, skins/invisible, godmode, teleport, trace, global messages, event rewards

Q: Where do I apply?
A: Here, click me

Format
Please follow the format. You may add any additional information at the end of your application.
Skype is a required form of communication for any staff member.


  • Name & IGN: real name + main character
  • Guild: (if any)
  • Age:
  • Gender:
  • Country + Timezone: the country you live in and its timezone
  • Skype ID:
  • Languages: mention your level of fluency for each
  • Experience on InfinityMU:
  • Availability during a regular week: think of your work / school schedule, only add certain availability
  • What are your biggest weaknesses?
  • What are your biggest strengths?
  • Why should we hire you?

Keep in mind that if we sense there is a lack of effort put into your application, your chances of approval significantly decrease. Do not post previous experience in the format. Also remember to post the following statement at the end of your application, showing us you've properly read the Truism thread:

"
Kindly refrain from posting in this thread unless its for suggestions or objections. I do not wish to see spam, or unwanted posts, despite the fact that they may mean well. You can thank me through Visitor Messaging or thx button. Lets keep this thread clean. Yes, "good job bro" or things along those lines are spam.
"

So in short, quality over quantity. Bear that in mind.
