Hello, I have used the format provided in the discord.
Discord ID: METH#8608
Apply for Position: Plugin Developer
As of right now, I have not played on the server for a single second. Likewise, I realise that this may affect my chances of getting accepted due to not having prior knowledge on the server’s key features. However, I still believe that I would be a fantastic addition to your team. Myself being a plugin developer I can argue that the ability to learn information as quickly as possible and then recall it in extreme detail is almost top priority. From an early age I had identified that I have a photographic memory, which basically means every time my brain learns new additional information it is stores it in long-term memory which has been known to help remember in amazing detail. Subsequently this skill allows me to produce high quality plugins with clean code and detailed features specifically defined by the client.
Experience for Position:
Since my early childhood days, I have been trying to solve challenging programming puzzles in multiple different languages. It was about 6 years ago that I had discovered Minecraft, and I have been playing the game ever since. After loving the game, I was trying to find ways to implement my programming skills into the game. After multiple weeks of searching I found Spigot! And that is where my love/hate relationship with Spigot was born. I was working on various kinds of plugins, with unique features all with one goal, to solve the numerous problems that vanilla Minecraft servers had and implementing my own strategies to overcome these issues. As I was still young I would often get frustrated with myself whenever a bug occurred. I simply did not have the ability to read the errors and pick out the not so clearly defined error messages. Over time I began to build up what I like to call a mastery of bug fixing, and it was this so-called mastery that has given me the ability to test my plugins as I work and to be as productive as possible whilst working on a project. As I grew older I began to build up my knowledge on Java and was building off the basic fundamentals and began working on some more advanced concepts. The more challenging the work became the more intriguing Spigot was. And with average a typing speed of 90 words per minute the productivity I was achieving was immensely high. It was my parents who had noticed just how much time I was spending working on my small-scale projects. And it was them who encouraged me to create my own business regarding plugin development, now known as JJASoftware. From the beginning I began teaching my friends some basic Spigot API applications. Those friends then grew into independent developers. It is from those few friends that inspired me to give teach others just how easy Java Development is. From this business I have guided multiple independent developers to work together as a team on large scale projects each achieving amazing results. Unfortunately, my friends and other employees have been lucky enough to find good paying jobs within the market working for numerous large networks. So, I am currently running my business as a Sole Trader. I have since decided to move my focus away from my business and instead use what I already have documented as a portfolio.
As the plugins I have developed for servers were written under strict privacy contracts I am not able to provide any examples of previous work. In saying that I will be happy to undergo a test somewhere along the lines of creating a sample plugin based on specifics you say with features you underline.
I would like to say thank you for giving me this opportunity and that I hope to be apart of your development team! 😊
Experience for Position: I have experienced being multiple different ranks in a large server group over the course of around 3 years, from Helper to Moderator/Builder to Head Admin. The group mainly hosted pixelmon servers and a Realm Of The Mad God inspired server which I had the pleasure of organising and building. With this variety I have gained experience with a range of build styles: modern towns and cities, nature-intergrated communities, fantasy builds and general terraforming. I also have experience with Voxel and World Edit.
During this time I also worked as the website manager and created the digital art for the website background/buttons etc.
Since then I have done a few small builds for other servers (mixed into the portfolio)
About Yourself: I'm an A Level student, my time table is a little funky but I'm no stranger to late nights if that is what's needed. I don't take myself too seriously, nor my builder role - we are all here to have fun aren't we? I'm flexible and dedicated to my work, open to criticisims and work well in groups but more comfortable with independant projects. I'm really looking for a time killer, I'll also have a lot of time after June the 22nd after my exams. To clarify, I'm here because I enjoy buidling, not for the staff role - I look forward to palying more on the server reguardless of the outcome.
With summer in full steam the server is definitely picking up. With it we are in need of developers as much as ever! Come join our development team of over 20 talented individuals working on everything from programming to graphical design.
As well as our other openings we have a big need for a technical minded person to handle Magic Configuration. Its not officially a programming position but programming background is definitely a plus. If you have any interested just post below or join our discord and apply there.
We are always in the mood to have new developers join our team! If you think you qualify or have the wish to, join our discord and post an application. Writing an application in the comments below is also a great idea. Hope to see ya!
We are still actively looking for dev team members for certain sections of our team and we would love to have you. Please either apply here or join our discord as we love to see more friendly faces and hard workers
I want to know more about what your server is about before I can potentially help.
We have a few sources you can look into if you want the current gist of the server, such as our wikipedia. It should give you all of the information you need to understand the goal of the server, but the main point the dev team attempt to strive for is an interactive world many players can experience in, honing in on nation-building, economy, quests, and all-around discovery of the world and the possibilities of what one can do with the features given. Of course the team is still open to new members who want to help improve the experience for the players.
