    Well we are starting to get organized! And it is time to open some posts here at Minecraftnews.net!

    Make your applications in "strictly about the forum" / "applications for posts on the forum" members that get accepted for one of these posts will if they like get the special title. And if you deliver good and reliable information / media you will get your own column on the site, and you will have almost free hands.


    So here are the posts available:


    (Red numbers mean the posts are filled, green means there are posts available, colors in names of groups are only for recognition and to know what group the specific posts belong to)

    As Staff 2/4 :

    - Apv301
    - Time

    To get one of the posts in staff position you also need to fill the demands for staff.

    Tool reviewer 1/1

    Movie maker 0/1 (We will only have one post open for movie maker staff but there will be more chances to be a movie maker for the forum but not as staff member. this person needs to have big skills in softwares like adobe after effects, Photoshop, Sony vegas, Fraps and so on, you will be our best editor / movie maker earlier work is a must. this member will get full access to our Youtube channel. )

    Livestreamer 2/3 (you need to be an active and professional minecraft player and you need to have your livestream on almost all the time playing Minecraft, your livestream will be added to our official livestreams)


    Researcher 0/1 (this person needs to have a huge commitment to the game and search high and low after articles, updates and everything that comes to mind when mention Minecraft, the info this person find will be used for articles, threads , mods and so on.)

    SMP server OP 0/1 ( You will need to have a good and fair eye for server management , be an very active Minecraft player on this specific SMP server is a must )

    Programmer / texture specialist 0/1 ( To fill this post you need to be good at programing like java scripts and so on, you name it, earlier work is recommended , like textures / modes made for Minecraft is a good thing to present )

    Posts available as a member:

    Movie Maker 4/5 ( you are not needed to have such advanced skills in editing and movie making as the one and only staff movie maker, but some skills are needed and you will be one of the members making movies for this community , like Minecraft trailers and such )

    Researcher 2/2 (As a member researcher you will deliver updates and news you hear about Minecraft or the developers for Minecraft to either me or the staff researcher or send tips to staff about other things like tools goes to apv301 (our tool reviewer) and so on.)

    Fan art creator 0/3 ( if we see any interest in this we might add a forum part for this , and we might add a fan art position to staff , skills you need is a good designers eye both in minecraft and maby good skills in programs like photoshop / paint )

    Livestreamer 0/3 (If you are an active and good Minecraft player you can be one of our Livestreamers, you need to have your livestream online almost all the time you play minecraft, and if your livestream is active and good enough you will be a oart of our official livestreamers on our livestream page.)


    I will add more "professions/staff positions" for the site here when they are needed or thought of. And also, feel free to send me any ideas you have about this, and if you think there are a position missing.

    I misunderstood where you wanted us to post applications lol, I'm sorry.


    Application for Movie Maker

    Seeing as how we have a new list of positions to be filled, I would like to apply for one of the movie maker positions. While I lack a tool like sony vegas, I can easily download fraps and I'm sure I can find a movie editing software somewhere.

    I know I can pull off the lower movie maker job with ease, although I'm somewhat less optimistic about the higher level movie maker job.

    Here is a sample of some of my best/better work. Most of them are unfinished.

    Movie skills at remaking "official" videos in a different game:

    Movie skills at video creation based off nothing:

    hey, i thought i had to be on the site for more time before applicating for staff (as i was told when i applicated for the first time, but the first time i had only 2 days of being around here xD), but after checking Time's and Apvs's joining date i think i am ok :)
    so i want to apply for staff (as i already had :p ), i think i can keep helping this forums and... well, you guys already *virtually* know me, at least a very little part of me and i think you got a good image about myself (i hope so) :) What else can i say? i will make this a better place (at least i promise i will try).
    Robin it is all up to you.

    I meant I have been here since the beginning, not as a staff member though. I only just recently got that.
    Howl, robin told you just yesterday to give it more time... So I think you really should give it more time, bud. Take his words to heart.

    I'm pretty sure I saw something posted yesterday about waiting. I could be mistaken though.

    That is when you posted :] not when Robin did. Robin posted on the thirteenth, saying you should wait for a while. That was 4 days ago, and waiting 4 days is not a while ;]

    You are most welcome to be a Researcher :) Do you want this as your title ? And now you will start as a member researcher, but for the future is it possible to get this as a staff position, but ofc you start as member researcher, With this position you will research thing about minecraft and Notch, you can be incharge of reading he's twitter and make some good questions to get good and safe information about upcoming updated and such :) and when you have much good information and you feel that you have enough for a small article, you send me the article and if I think it is good enough to make first page I will post it there, and ofc your name will be as author! good luck to you!

    Thanks person one! Have any experience of move making or such? :) Some old clip you can show us? Anyhow I will put you on both the lists, and If you want any of this special titles, tell me and I will manually change your title :) And same thing for you as an researcher, when you think you have gathered good information, make it into an article and send it to me by a PM and if it is good enough it will make the front page ofc with your name on it :) Or else it will fit as a post on the forum, I will properly make a section for member updates! And as move maker, To challange you, if you have the time right now you can make some cool Minecraftnews trailer, we will have something official about this in the future, but you and the other movie makers get's a head start :)

    Sounds exciting! :) I have now created a work space for all in our staff / workers, check the forum, you all can use this space to bounce ideas, post your work and so on :)

    And the trailer that is best in the end will ofc cover our front page and be some kind of introduction for minecraftnews , so it will get many many views!
