PostSubject: Staff Application Walkthrough & Assistance. WIP   Wed Apr 09, 2014 10:39 pm

This is the section in which those who are wishing to apply for staff but are confused and overwhelmed by the application can come to recieve help. This is a step-by-step walkthrough, which will show you how to fill out the application properly to raise your chances of being accepted by at least 80%. Of course, it's still possible for you to be declined, and not everything will be mentioned on this walkthrough as we would like to hear your answers. Of course, there's much more you can do to help yourself get accepted! It generally works before you fill out the application, and entails getting the staff members to recognize you. Speak to them, get to know them and make things fun. Make suggestions, rent houses, and even do things like donating to help support the cost of the dream package so that Camp Bournedale can stay up and running!

Onto the walkthrough!


Basic Introduction(s) || All About You ;

The first three questions are straight to the point and already tell you the requirements, and there's no tips here as it's just basic information. However, we ask for your gender as most people use pronouns when they're speaking about a person, and we don't want to offend you! The gender of your account on Furcadia may not be what you want to be reffered as, especially if it's a roleplay character.

When it comes to the fourth question, which inquires as to your age - we're not meaning to invade on your personal privacy, so it's perfectly alright if you would prefer to not answer. However, we're looking for people who do have a bit of a higher maturity level and don't require an adult to be in the room when using Furcadia. Generally, people begin to experience things like getting a job, learning to drive, among other things at the age of sixteen - so, it was decided this was a good age. However, we're mostly just looking for people who are mature!

As for inquiring how long you've been on Furcadia, it's just to see how much you know. If you've only been on Furcadia for a day and don't quite know how to move your avatar around, or what 'DS' and 'PS' means, maybe you should come back apply in a couple of months, instead. c:

Next is the question asking you to name who you would like to be your mentor, which is a fancy term for you requesting someone specific to give you your training over the course of the next couple of weeks, should you be accepted. Now, this is where the "tricks" within the questions begin to come out - so please carefully pay attention to the application from here on out. While, yes, in requesting someone yourself, you're taking off an amount of stress and work from the Staff Manager, this is also a test to see if you've taken the time to get to know the staff members. If you're willing to take that extra time to speak to them, you'll likely be willing to go above and beyond in the future to exceed the expecations of staff members. While you do not have to ask for a certain member, it is one of the key parts to being accepted. It may make you look lazy, otherwise!

The Basics of CB || Now that we know about you, how do you know us?

The first two questions are quite simple in this section, and you should be able to answer it without any troubles. If you need assistance, perhaps you should spend some more time in the dream before applying.

The third question is asking who the original founders of CB are. This question was placed on the application mostly to sound out those who were willing to put in extra effort and look around the forums, instead of simply assuming and filling out an application.

While the answer to this question is truly simple, it may be considered a trick; so please be cautious. If you've had to look at the Staff List for answers to the first two questions or this one, you probably haven't been in the dream long enough to apply.

Straight forward! When do you believe we opened?

This next question, "How many staff members do we have, at the present time?" seems simple and straightforward; but please be warned this is a trick question. What the question appears to be asking for is, "How many staff do we actually have right now?" What it's /actually/ asking, is how many you believe we have - meaning, don't look at the staff list. Think to the past- .. maybe two weeks, and try and count all the different staff members who you've noticed a fair bit around the desk. You may impress us if you list their names!

Have you gone out of your way to attempt to get to know the staff members?

If you have gone out of your way to speak to the staff members, and your possible future co-workers, are there any issues we need to know about that may cause a bump within the dream? This likely will not affect your application; we're looking for the status of your maturity, with this. Also, if you would b willing to fill out reports against staff members. While 'tolerating' someone is alright, we need to make sure you have no problems stepping up if someone's out of line. If you can admit you've got a problem with someone, it shows you're at an older mental age; and that's what we're asking, with this.



++ Notice : The art staff section has been omitted from the walkthrough, for the reason that it's quite straightforward and for the most part, only asks for examples. If you are confused about any of the questions, you may post a topic in the questions section of the forum.





















What does 'CB' stand for?:
Who is the owner of the dream?:
What are the name(s) of the user(s) who created/came up with the idea for CB?:
What is the Furcadian Name of the Co-Owner?:
Opening Date?:
How many staff members do we have, at the present time?:
Have you previously spoken to staff? If so, which ones?:
Are there any staff members you didn't get along with?

Art Staff Section
Enable / Disable

Please only fill out this section if you're interested in becoming a member of the art staff. You, of course, can otherwise gain and lose rank - you'll just have a special star next to your name in the staff list that lets us know you're an art staff member. If you're interested in filling this out, please bold "Enable" and hide the rest of this with a spoiler tag. The spoiler tag is the little notepad in the fourth section of formatting tools, with the "!" in a yellow triangle. If you're disinterested in filling this out, please bold "Disable" and remove the rest of this section from your application.

Requirements;
Please note that all art staff must donate either: one piece of custom work to be seen in Camp Bournedale ONLY, or two pieces of other work.

Spoiler:
   Type: What type of artist are you? Do you draw, patchwork, portraits, etc.
   Your Donation(s): Please list here what you'll be donating to the dream (custom work or otherwise) in order to be accepted.
   Commission Information: If applicable. Please post your prices, as well as discount information if applicable. You may be asked to donate to the dream (you will recieve gold and other incentives within the dream, perhaps a perm for a few months as a thank-you), but we would like to actually pay you for your work from time to time, provided you do accept commissions.
   Examples: Please post a link to some of your previous work(s).
   Other Information?: Anything else you'd like to add? Please do. The more information, the better. Also, please be aware you can be accepted for staff and not art staff and vice versa.



Scenarios || What would you do in these situation(s)? How well do you handle pressure?
While there is no limit, please know two words isn't acceptable. Provide as much detail is possible, and know that everything here is required. Some questions are two or more parts, so be sure to answer all portions. If you miss part of a question, you may be automatically declined.

Note: The application has been changed since this update! As such, this won't be finished. But, if another staff member would like to re-write something similar for the new application as well as some pointers, please feel free to go ahead.
