Hey guys, I was thinking we could do something about the way the team is laid out and the way in which we recruit people.

1.

I think we should have a shared email account that only core members can access (or something similar). We can then get people to apply there instead of in my inbox which is less convenient.

That way, everyone can see a person's previous work and what skills they have.
DONE


2.

I think we should reorganise the forum so that there are sub sections for when work is completed, when it's in concept form or when it's WIP. Sceluk mentioned this a while ago and I think it might be a good idea to implement it now we're getting bigger. LABELLING IS A BETTER IDEA AND WILL BE DONE SOON.


3.

We should get people to apply to one or two places and not 5 places like they can at the moment. We can close some threads and make it clear that we ONLY except recruits via email. DONE

4.

We should make the fact that we have an FAQ, fan forum and donation system more obvious on our main pages (Twitter, facebook, moddb and crydev) so people don't keep on asking obvious questions like 'will it be 1st person?'. Very Happy



What do you guys think?

1. Chris can make something like a recruitment@swbattlecry.com email and forward all in-going emails to the recruiters.

2. That'd make the forum really large and too complex IMO. We could just add the current state into the title like '[Concept] It's a map' or '[Finished] It's a character'.

3. Yes

4. Unless you print the most frequently asked questions in a 100 p font on the main pages I don't think it will do a lot. But we definitely could somehow emphasize the links more.

Okay. For point 4, that's what I meant. I didn't mean writing it out.

Hello, 3D env' artist here !
I think we could name (elect or chosen by dictatorship) a "lead" for every section : concept/gamedesign, coders, sound, artists. Only the four leads and the project manager can access the mailbox.

Then we should ask people to fill a form to apply on specific position, something like this :

Subject : [art] animator application
name surname
website/portfolio
introduction
resume link

So it will be easy for leads to identify who is applying to which position.

The same kind of organization could be applied to the forum :
Art Section (subforums : environment, character design, animation)
Code Section (subforums)
Sound Section (subforums)
Gamedesign/writers (subforums)

With a main post updated daily/weekly by leads on what is needed, completed and who is working on stuff.

The FAQ is a good idea, however we could even create a Wiki updatable only by us Smile

I like that idea. I'll ask Chris about some kind of form people can fill in.

Most of these things have been completed, we just need to do no.4.
