GM DO I NEED TO BE OVER 18 TO APPLY?!?!No, player. Though, being 13+ would certainly help your case (COPPA, and all). We care about mental maturity more than we do about physical maturity.GM HOW MANY HOURS DO I NEED TO WORK?!There is no set limit, player, however this is NOT just a "do it when I feel like it" thing. By applying to be a GM, you are saying that you are willing to ACTIVELY make time in your day to meet various GM-related responsibilities for as long as forseeably possible. List your availability based on your regular life--not on your breaks or vacation days or anything else. Moreover, if you don't have the time or will to dedicate to a position, then it's better not to apply.GM, DOES GMING GET ME ALL THE CHICKS?!If only, player, if only. Most of the things that would actively get you chicks are forbidden--as in, we have rules against giving out free stuff and haxing stats and whatnot, so if you're going to apply just for the attention/chicks--don't bother.GM DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP MY LEGIT?!At the moment, no, player. However, if you get accepted as a GM, most likely your time on your legit will plummet, and you will have to distance yourself from your friends or guild a least a little. GMing always comes before legitting, no matter how hard you want to WoE at the time. Thus, if you are extremely active in your guild/with your friends and are unwilling to put that second in your RO life, you should not apply. However, if we find your performance as a GM unsatisfactory, especially because of your legit, or if our rules change, we do reserve the right to either suspend your legit until your quality of conduct improves, or simply remove you from the staff.GM I SHOULD TOTALLY BEEF MYSELF UP AND MAKE MYSELF LOOK COOLER TO GET ACCEPTED, RIGHT?!No, player, GOD NO. We've been doing these applications long enough to tell when someone is lying about what their hours are, how dedicated they can be, etc. The best thing to do is to just be honest--but still professional. Seriously, anytime someone says something like "My only weakness is that I work too hard!" we roll our eyes hard enough that they're in danger of popping out of our heads.ARE THERE ANY OTHER REQUIREMENTS GM?!Well, player, besides the secret special things we look for, you must be fluent in English and willing to type at least semi-properly, this is an English speaking server, so that is a MUST--it is also a must to successfully complete the application. Moreover, you should have a fairly clean slate. That is not to say that if you've ever been warned or banned, ever, we won't accept you, but having a history of being drama bait, being disrespectful, being inflammatory, or otherwise breaking rules will make us hesitate rather hard to hire you. It would also help if you knew RO, especially the server you are applying for.GM HOW MANY ARE YOU HIRING?!This is not highlander, player, there can be more than one. We will hire whoever meets our criteria, so please don't be trying to sabotage others or anything silly like that.GM I DONATED A LOT OF MONEY, CAN I BE GM YET?We don't care how much money you invested into your account--that has little to do with how good of a GM you could be.GM WHAT SERVER I APPLY FOR.As stated above, we are hiring GM's in Eternal and Old school, you have a higher chance of being accepted if you have played on these server and know how it functions.
Account Name:Forum Name:Full Name:Gender:Date of Birth:Location:Time Zone:Languages Fluently Spoken:Availability:Previous GMing experiences and names:aeRO Servers played on:aeRO servers applying for:Months/Years been playing in aeRO:All of the following must be answered in complete sentences, each answer being from 100-250 words, not including the questions themselves. We will check for this and be very, very pedantic about it..Why do you want to be a GM?What is the quality of your interactions with the RO community? Are you well known? Do you have many friends/enemies?Why should we hire you? Have you ever been on the receiving end of any disciplinary actions? (Warns, bans, jails, etc). If so, why, and what has happened in the meantime to indicate that your behavior has changed? If not, what do you think will ensure your continued good behavior?Explain your personality and how you think this would suit your dynamic as a GM.What do you believe are the necessary and exemplary qualities a GM needs to be an effective GM and why?Free Write (no word minimum)What are the GMs' ACTUAL duties and abilities, what SHOULD their duties and abilities be, and how would you explain this premise to someone who has no idea about aeRO and what its GMs do? How do you think GMs differ from other staff members? Be specific to aeRO.Are there any other things you'd like to tell us about yourself?
Do we need to be an active player in any of these servers? Example, I'm from Turbo Server and I am planning to apply for a GM position in Eternal...
perfect availability and a sense of humor like iamExe.. then you're hired. Well, that's based on me & on top of that [GM] Ba$her has yet the power to decide. Best of luck to all aeRO Elite Applicants. Just to add something... the staff will not hire you if you are not an elite just to make sure you that.
can i clarify about the task? if the new GM gives an event for example, and the winner shall be awarded, is it still the main GM's responsibility to award the prize (i.e. GM Ajax, GM basher) or they can have the right now to give prize themselves??? because it'll trigger the trust and credibility issue between the newly hired GM's and the main GM's..anyway, goodluck to all applicants looking forward to meet another great & friedly GM in eternal since GM mafia
