Are you over 18? (You must be 18+ to apply.)
Which game(s) are you applying in?
What is the character or account name you’re joining that game with?
Do you have friends or family in the guild? If so what is their forum name?
So... let's talk! What follows are a bunch of questions that give us a sense of your personality, and give us something to talk about. If your answers are boring or short, we’ll assume you’re boring (and probably short).
Tell us the story of one of the dumbest, funniest or most embarrassing things you've done as an adult.
I met Orson Scott Card and all I could think to ask was, "So, do you speak any foreign languages?" I had forgotten the whole book (Speaker For The Dead) where the main plot was "I speak Portuguese!" He modestly mentioned to me he speaks a little Portuguese. He must scream into his pillow every night after he meets his fans.
What's the coolest job you've ever had? What's the worst? (And why?)
I was a tech support rep for a Japanese game (Final Fantasy XI, Squaresoft) for Europe (1 - 10 am Pacific) in German. It was awesome, because it was collocated with Sony Online's support center, so I got lots of SOE swag. It was also terrible because of everything in the first sentence.
Name three video games you'll replay no matter how old they get. (And why?)
Asheron's Call, Lineage II, Age of Empires.
Tell us about the most annoying person you've ever met, and why he/she annoyed you.
When I was a teenager there was a youth leader guy from church who would stop by my place on Sunday mornings, pound on my door, and harass me about getting up and going with him. So now I still hide under my bed whenever anyone knocks at my door.
Tell us something cool about yourself that has nothing to do with gaming. (Free hint: responding to your application thread with photo or video supporting evidence is a plus!)
I once hiked for a bit up in some mountains:
Why choose the Unrepentant Gaming Community over just a regular gaming guild?
It's good to know there is a community that spans various games and you seem to enjoy a rich social life outside of your computers and... ugh, I can't carry on with the job interview spiel: You guys are perverted enablers who can help me keep cool and keep off the wagon.
BONUS: Ask us some questions! We're sure you've got some.
Is this an FBI honeypot? Did I miss something in the User Agreement that includes installing a backdoor on my computer? Does this rash look contagious?
do you wear pants?
