In the past year, the forum programming team members were pretty active for the most part and made a lot of releases together. As a result, we did not actively seek for new Coders of Tomorrow members for months, only adding a few here and there, when we received some applications or promoted anti-riot squad members to the team. However, in the last few weeks, activity from the Omnimaga team in general went lower and we lost an admin, in addition to another one going less active. We added two new ones beforehand, but they are in charge of the website for the most part.
As the TI community seems to be going through a period of transition in terms of departing and arriving calculator fans, the Omnimaga Coders of Tomorrow programming team is now starting to renew its team.
In other words, we're hiring new programmers for the
position on Omnimaga.
Like last year, we will only accept calculator programmers, although in a few months, positions for computer game programmers might open too.If anyone is interested in joining the programming team, you only have to meet the following conditions before you get hired:
-Have 100 posts
-Have been active posting for at least one month
-Have a good forum/IRC behaviour during that period
-Be involved in at least one of the following:
*TI or Casio game programming
*TI or Casio game development tools (on calc or on the computer)
-Have a project under development (screenshots or topic needed).
-The language used to program games and tools doesn't matter.As Omnimaga staff you get the following:
-The ability to upload your TI/Casio games/utility, PC games or own music in our staff downloads section. (ZIP files for calc/computer uploads, MP3/MIDI for music)
-You get sub-forums for each of your calculator game/utility, PC game/software or ROM hack projects.
-Global moderator priviledges (in case of an invasion or something)
-If you ever quit calculator programming (which we don't hope
), you can still remain in the team as either PC game programmer or musician (providing you make your own music), providing you remain active on the forums.Here are the responsibities as Omnimaga staff (to ensure they remain active):
-Have an active project (or releases) going on under the themes specified above.
-Keep a minimum of at least 10 posts within the last 30 days from September 1st to June 30st and 5 posts within the last 30 days from July 1st to August 31st.
-Checking your forum inbox, the staff/moderation section (which appears in red in the New Posts section) and your e-mail prior checking new posts, in case you get anything important.
-Moderation is on a volunteer basis, although it's recommended to help when those naughty spambots flock in. We recommend our regular members to use the Report to moderator links on each post if you find anything suspicious. If you are willing to join the team, please PM one of the managers on the forums. Your staff application will then be queued then processed (possibly after the first programming contest).
