Thread starter #1
Thank you for showing interest in becoming a voluntary staff member! This is a guideline for the role of Developer, please read the entire guideline before considering to apply.

We are looking for players who are able to make and develop content for Hatrex Network with excellence. A more detailed list of requirements we look for in developer candidates is listed below.


Development on Hatrex Network falls under two categories
  • Developer
  • Website Developer

A developer will be focusing on running the server, in terms of games and plugins. A website developer will be focusing on running the website and working on new websites if needed. This is currently a voluntary job. [Subject to change in the future]

There are some coding and emotional skills we require in our developers listed below.

Coding
Understanding of Web-Servers (Nginx and Apache) - You must be able to use web-servers, primarily if you are applying for a website developer. Our forums runs on XenForo and it’s something you should probably know how to use as well, alongside with an understanding of Nginx and Apache.
Minimal Understanding of PHP, HTML, and CSS - To be able to write these scripts, and use them is quite essential. Fonts, text files, colours, everything of that sort does come under this category. It is required to have minimal knowledge of these languages.
Understanding of Linux distributions - This is the operating system where you will need to work on. Coding games, plugins, and custom plugins, etc. all come under this category. If you do apply for developer and you want to code games, this is an important requirement. We host these servers on Ubuntu servers, and you need to be thorough with Linux Distributions.
Understanding of Java - To be a game developer, this is probably the most important aspect. Minecraft runs on Java, therefore to do any sort of coding, you will require to know Java.


Emotional
Maturity - Even being a developer, you represent our server, and we require you to do so in a respectful, mature, and professional manner.
Ability to work with a deadline - Often times we will set you deadlines to update a game or set up a website in a certain amount of time. It is important you adhere to these deadlines, and also let us know if you won’t be able to meet them due to some issues that may crop up.
Criticism - We also look for developers that are able to tolerate and accept criticism. We will often provide criticism so you can improve your work in the future, and we require you to understand this. You should not take it to be rudeness and/or harshness. If you are unable to accept being criticised for your work, then do not apply. Even owners and admins receive criticism for the work they do, and it is an important aspect of improvement.

Are there any physical requirements I must have before I can apply?
1)
You must have a working microphone
2) You must have a registered forums account.
3) You must have a Discord account

How long are Developer applications open for?
Applications are open all the time, however they can be closed temporarily for technical issues.

Who will review your application?

If you are accepted, you will receive a reply on your application with a message requesting to have a voice interview on Discord. This does require you to have a microphone

I was denied?
If you were denied, you will not be able to apply for Developer for 1 year.
