Required Questions:

Does your account hold a Gold or Classic subscription?

Yes, I have a Gold subscription. I also have a large supply of gelats to fill that subscription and do not see any reason why I would not be able to purchase more once they run out.

Do you have any experience with editing Wikipedia pages?

Yes, I have a good basis of experience: Oftentimes I edit the Graal Bible- I've written pages for several playerworlds and updated the worlds list, itself.

Write a short paragraph expressing why you want to join the team.

I decided to apply for this position because I enjoy writing and having my work read. Lately, I've found that I prefer writing informative, non-fiction articles and essays in addition to my already existing liking of writing long, fictional stories. From what Iíve seen, this job includes both of those genres. I think it would be fun to write and deliver Graal's news to the Graalians, because I have played GraalOnline an awful lot lately and would like to be a part of its staff team. From what I've heard, this team consists of good people, and I must admit I am fond of working with good people. ;) The main spark that made me really interested in applying for this position, however, was the realization the Global News Team members actively edit Graal.net; I think that by having the authority to make major changes I could have a good time and aid the site even more than I currently am.

Optional Questions:

Previous staff positions on Graal:
Throughout my time on Graal, I have worked on many UC servers. I worked for these servers to practice developing levels and scripts while helping the serverís owner and staff team to do the same. (Developing is one of the main things that attracted me to Graal) On several servers I've worked for, I've been complimented by the staff teams who believed that I was very hard working, friendly, helpful, and dedicated.

I also worked on Kingdoms iPhone for a few months as a storywriter before leaving due to inactivity of the team.

References from previous or current staff positions:
There really isn't anybody who I could safely say they support me in receiving this job without stretching the truth. (If anyone I know reads this and thinks I would be adequate for the job, posting that would be much appreciated. :P)

Other information you want to add:
If needed, and I expect it would be, I would be available to help with updates on the Facebook or Twitter pages.

Well, that's all I have to say. Any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Hmmm, MattKan should be hired... I'm giving you the honest truth here. MattKan sometimes may be a jerk to me, but he always gets back to being your freind. Once I quit a server because MattKan was hired there, but now I feel MattKan can set some pretty big goals for himself and accomplish them. Besides being a great advisor, MattKan is also a pretty decent LAT and NAT. I feel that MattKan is up for the task, and he would be very happy to be chosen (not that, that matters). But, seriously, we all met MattKan at least once, and he has been pretty nice. Lets get MattKan in the global news team :D

Good Luck Matt,
You deserve it.

I would just like to clarify that the inactivity was strictly restricted to the storyline team, not the entire development team.
Additionally- remember, a team is only as inactive as all of its team members.

Good luck with your application.

Yes, iGK was definitely shaping along nicely and I would hate for people to look at my posts and think that it isn't great or that they shouldn't consider applying for it. (It really is better than the other iPhone servers and I'll definitely play actively once it releases :) )

Thanks Astram and PowerPro :) and Tig
