    6. Able to provide a sample article that you have written. If not, write an article based on the title "Online gaming is..." with a minimum of 800 words.
    However, do take note that applying for the position at HS.Network is on a VOLUNTARY basis. Of course it won't be voluntary work forever, as we would need to establish the site well with contents first before we can start talking about benefits for our staffs to enjoy (such as monthly game subscription fully reimbursed)!
    Damn. Met all of the requirements except the third one. I would've really liked to join up here.

    I guess we should take thousands of screenshots of the old HS. The new era will soon be born!

    Onrpg is like strictly any game that goes online, like diablo and such, so i can do console/handheld games. That means, the Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness review is for anyone's use :P
    Ah, I see. Unfortunately we will not be going into console games yet. We might be in the future if this works lol.

    Woops, I should have put 'game(s)' instead of 'games'. Yes, it is possible to be specialize in only one field, by providing any reviews or news & updates of the game.

    Here's a question... Can I apply, but have my application, if accepted, put on hold (or some other form of waiting list) until I get the green light to start working with this?

    cloud, one last thing. 800 words is too wimpy. 1k is at best minimum. 1.5k tops.

    Just out of curiosity, how long will the applications be open for?

    I ask, for that I'll be starting school again soon and I'll need some time to get adjusted to the new schedule. If it's open for a month or so, I'll form an application.

    He's offline, so I'll cover it. I asked earlier [for the same reasons] and he said

    which means you'll probably have at least a month to do it, since it's a 2-4 week warning.

    Already said that there'd be 2-4 weeks notice before apps were closed.

    And Moonlight, I think it's supposed to be a couple paragraphs to get an understanding of your writing style. Shorter is better because they have to read them all.


    Uh, good luck on this btw...I'm not really interested in applying myself. :)

    Thank you. I can't believe that I missed that.

    Edit: I'm also assuming that a casual [from the witty preference] writing style is more desirable than other forms.
