If you have technical writing experience outside Medievia (such as a job on
a programming project, more than one semester of technical writing classes
at the university level, an internship that involved documentation writing,
or more advanced work experience as a technical writer) be sure to mention
that. Try to be concise; good, solid communication skills are vital for
this position, and help files need to be written to be tight and clear.
1.) Are you at least 18 years old or older? It's not necessary to tell us
how old you are if you're over 18, but you must be at least 18 to
apply for a god position.
2.) What are your characters' names on Medievia, and what levels are
they? This position requires a familiarity with the game that comes
with experience. You must have played the game to hero at least once
3.) Have any of your Medievia characters ever been purged? If so, what was
the character's name and why was it purged?
4.) What languages do you know fluently, and which one is your native
language (the one you speak and understand the best)? This position
requires solid English skills and the ability to write clearly,
following provided style examples, but having English as a second
language does not necessarily disqualify you. What country do you live in?
5.) What experience do you have as a technical writer or documentation
writer, or in a related job? Specify education (and school projects)
at the university level and any professional experience.
6.) How many hours a week do you have available to work on your god
should you be hired? The Documentation Writer needs to be able to log
on several times a week and must be able to check his or her Medievia
e-mail regularly, and should be able to notify Cartimanua ahead of
time of any expected absences.
7.) Are you a clanleader? This may or may not affect your ability to
become a god, depending on the time required of the job you apply
for and the judgement of those hiring you.
8.) Do you feel when helping players you can conduct yourself in a
professional manner and ignore any personal grudges or biases you
may have? Why?
9.) Please choose one of the commands/features listed below and write a
sample help file for its BASIC USE Refer to existing help files if
you want to, but use your own words. If anything is missing from the
existing help file, or if there isn't one (!), fix that. Keep in mind
that help files do not reveal specific formulas, numbers, or ratios to
players, and that your main task in this job is successfully teaching
people how to USE a command/feature and how to UNDERSTAND what you see
in the game when using it.
10.) Choose an entry in CHANGES dated between 10/01/10 and today, and see
if you can find anything in the help files that is wrong, outdated,
misleading, or missing about it. Tell us what you'd change. This is a
major part of this job. CHANGES is the documentation writer's greatest
11.) Please describe your educational background. What subjects interest
you the most? What is/was your major in college or graduate school?
Please include any independent or personal study you've undertaken in
subjects that interest you.
12.) What other information can you tell us about yourself that you feel
qualifies you for this god position?
We reserve the right to deny applications for any reason.
