    BlueGartr is looking to grow in staff!

    Listen everyone, BG is wanting to grow, more content, more adventure, more awesome. And we need YOU to help us with this. Ragns made this great infograph that I wrote so Im gonna post it here! Its awesome! Except for the part where Ragns eats your face, he left that out, which makes me sad, but the rest is awesome!



    Shit yeah! That infograph is KICKIN! So pick your panties up off the ground, hide your erections of excitement and figure out what YOU would like to do for BG and what BG can do for YOU!

    Were looking to grow by about 30 or so staff members, so blogs erry day, more forum optimization, more media, more social, much forum. I know many of you blog and some of you are even pretty freaking awesome at it, so let us in on your wordsmithery!

    Send me a PM or an email (Sonomaa at gmail dot com) with your qualifications/sample work and what you would like to do and we will get it on!

    Yes my sig has rotating cats in it, its all Maru. I know its awesome.

    Sharing this on Twitter for maximum reach! *80s guitar riff*

    I know nothing of those languages required above (my pseudo-knowledge dies with HTML/CSS) but I will keep making blog posts! Go go BG!

    So switch to using something else, there is actually no excuse for using flash these days, it's a horrific technology with massive security flaws - but I am sure you don't need me telling you that!

    I'd like to add a requirement: all wordsmiths must be willing to sit around in a library of rich mahogany, filled with countless leather-bound books, sip Cognac, and occasionally utter words like "quite" and "indeed."*





    * You will have to provide your own high-back chair.

    That's why we need more people to port it to other platforms. So far Octopus did a good job porting it to Android.

    Keep in mind that when BG Chat launched websockets didn't exist and protocols like IRC were banned from most datacenters so our options were limited.

    But yeah that's the kind of shit you have to deal with when you support more than 11 years of legacy. To put that in perspective BG is older than YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Stack Overflow, Reddit and FireFox 1.0.

    Hi Sono,

    I'd be interested in content creation and wikistuffs.

  19. #19

    I sent Sonomaa a PM about a JRPG project I've been working on lately that might be a good fit with BG.

    That said, Ragns, I have a lot of experience with developing some front-end browser clients for chat via web sockets as well as HTTP, depending on the time frame you're looking at I might be able to contribute on that front.

    I don't think that passes off as an infograph; Too much info, and no graphs.

    Glad to see your'e working with Kuno and finishing this up!




    As far as contributions. I have nothing specific.
    But, I suppose if you guys put together some sort of more specific wishlist/todolist of things you'd like to see get accomplished, I may be able to assist.
