So you want to be a helper? That's great, BotService is always looking for new able-minded people to help the organization. Before we go any further, there are some things you should be aware of before considering going into this adventure.
Most importantly, make sure you've read our rationale, to see why we do what we do.
Joining BotService is not anything like all fun and games, far from it. Our work is a duty, to our users, and to our networks. You might be called away from your chat with a friend at the worst possible times to do a bot installation, and there is little you will be able to do about it. You'll have to work with people for hours at a time to make them understand things you find extremely simple. Then just when you thought that you were through with your installations for the day, 5 more people will rush in and start arguing amongst themselves about who gets your attention first.
There will be good times as well of course. You'll have interesting discussions with very intelligent people about how to improve the service. You'll expand your knowledge of the inner workings of IRC and bots, and you'll probably spend more time using your brain then you do now.
So you're still reading? That's good. Now lets look at what you need to have before you apply.
We expect and need certain things from our staff. Key amoung those
things is an open mind, an outgoing friendly personality, a level of maturity
and an ability to think logically. We do not ask that you devote every
waking minute to the service, but when you are helping out? We need you
to be a team player. Let's spend a minute in closing going over each of
those key needs:
If you've read through all this and still want to be a BotService staff member, you certainly get points for dedication. On the next page you will find a series of questions, which will help us determine if you will make a good staff member.
