  1. ShibuyaGato Transformation

    May 1, 2009
    Hello everyone! After recent events, I'm sure many of you have noticed that some areas of our staff team are quite barren. We have done some shuffling around of the team which has left us with a lot of open space for new staff members, and for that reason we have decided to open applications to everyone.

    Staff applications have always been open to premium members, regardless of whether we need applicants or not. Because we would like a high volume of applicants, we encourage everyone to seriously consider applying, even if you have already applied in the past. When you send in your application, you'll also receive a copy in your inbox - no need to follow up with us before then. In addition, there is no need to resend an application if you submitted one in the past few days. You're more than welcome to if you want to add things you may have missed, but we will be reviewing every application that's been sent in the past week. The positions we've got open are as follows:

    • Sectional Moderator - This is the position with the most general focus. Duties can vary, but will mainly focus on the maintenance of certain sections, and general upkeep of the forum. Sec mods are also jokingly referred to as "forum janitors."
    • News Reporter - The job of a reporter is pretty self explanatory: you'll be reporting the latest Kingdom Hearts news to the good people of KH-Vids, as well as updating the site's social media platforms (tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) accordingly. If you're already stalking the various Square Enix pages for news, this is the kind of position you might enjoy.
    • Media Content Recorder - Media content recorders are responsible for taking cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts games for our Cutscene Archive (you know, the thing the site is named for). This one requires some hardware and technical experience, so if you're applying then please have an example of your work ready to show us.
    • Translator - If you're going to apply for a translator position, you'll need to be knowledgeable in Japanese (not necessarily fluent, just good enough to make intelligible translations). Not everything that gets released to the public regarding our dearly beloved series is in English, and sometimes official translations can take a while. As a site translator, you'd be responsible for taking any interviews, videos or social media posts and making them accessible to the majority of people on the site sooner rather than later.
    Once the flood of applications has calmed and they've all been reviewed, we'll start formally replying and the second phase will begin. Until then though, apply away!

      Just posting to let you all know that the deadline for applications will be next week.

      Moderator apps will be closing this Friday (July 29th), and Reporter/Translator/Media Content Recorder apps will be closing next Wednesday (August 3rd).

      If you've been on the fence about applying, now is the time to send one in guys!
    7. ShibuyaGato
      That's it. Moderator apps are officially closed! Prems can still send them in at any time, but any that we receive from here on out will be at a lower priority than those submitted before the deadline.

      You can still send in Reporter/Translator/Media Content Recorder apps until next Wednesday however.
    8. Plums
      Quick reminder that deadline for Reporter/Recorder/Translator apps is tonight!
