If someone applied in a mail, when will you answer?

Cheers,
William

I'll only reply to emails to request more information. If you never receive a reply it probably means we decided to go with someone else. We're not looking for a ton of people just a couple to fill each position. Right now we definitely need more people to apply for programming and design. Content Editor is pretty much full. I could also use one more Game Scenario Writer.

Boy did I fail. I didn't realise I'd timed out. Try again.

So, if you reply asking us to write something, and we send it to you and you don't reply, does that essentially mean we didn't get it, or...?

& Thank U, Next Hera • Sunday, February 5, 2012 - 10:19pm • #5

I was wondering the same thing as Rylan...

!Headmaster Danilo • Monday, February 6, 2012 - 2:48am • #6

If I don't reply it means I already found too many people for the position or I just haven't replied yet. =P

The Goddess GinnyMalfoy • Wednesday, February 8, 2012 - 11:08am • #7

When you've picked the whole team, will you let us all know who the lucky people are? :)

!Headmaster Danilo • Friday, February 10, 2012 - 2:05am • #8

Sure thing. :)

Applied for Content Editor! I'll probably get turned down, but if you don't try, you never find out.

Firstyeargirl Lizbeth • Sunday, February 19, 2012 - 1:50am • #10

Hey Danilo,

8b69277e663bc20 • Sunday, March 4, 2012 - 5:59am • #15

If you reply, does that mean they have the position?

New staff and a management team to recruit?
Good luck!

!Headmaster Danilo • Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 6:54pm • #21

Last time I only filled two game writer positions and the content editor position. All those people have since left. I'm actively recruiting new people.

Iridescent Patsy • Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 8:50pm • #22

Content Editor. *_*

Perfect. Applied. Hope my resume is good enough.

Applied for Developer/Programmer! Any ideas as to when we might hear from someone about the roles we applied for?

Viridescent Sect • Sunday, October 13, 2013 - 5:24am • #25

A crazy amount of applications aren't saying what their in-game name is. That's quite a useful piece of (non-personal) information, people.
