HOW TO BE A DECENT MFRGT MEMBER?!Writing this post because everyone must know how the joining works here.
A lot of people have the greatest desire of want to know how to join the MFRemake working group.
The gates for allow them to enter are mostly often closed, because it's obvious that not everybody have the right potentials for being a team user. There are strict rules, and people must respect them. If we allow users that at first they respect them, but after some time they start to be lazy, or start to chat with others about other stuff, then the team can go in crash, and possibly also the scene. Here's why I've decided to write such post where I'm going to explain the main conditions for being a good team member:
- Have a longeve experience. Not saying 15 or 20 years, that would be exaggerated even for Buziol Games, but about at least 5-7 years of MF gaming experience are enough. More is the experience, more is the content you're going to make qualitatively enough for be in MFRemake.
- Be active enough. You don't need to be always 100% active in forums or in private chats (also, don't do it, I highly hate it when people send me 50 messages per day. Experience talks!), but being active enough on the MF scene is a good way for know that you're interested in MF making. If you have some new ideas about projects or simply in new worlds, feel free to suggest them to the administrators of the team. Then it's on their hand choosing the final verdict.
- Don't spam. If you prefer losing time by spamming and/or chatting about uninteresting and/or not useful things, then the team is NOT the right place. The working group is made mainly for working stuff, and talking about level/graphic/music making. Obviously sometimes is good to talk about other things, but this MUSTN'T become an "everyday" target, don't know if I've explained it well.
- Be mature. The team is composed only, if not mainly, by people who is adult and mature enough for know what they're doing. Obviously not-adult people are welcome too, but if you feel that you know what you're going to do, then feel free to ask for the join. In the contrary, go somewhere else.
- Be educated. Bad words, not understandable phrases and forgotten sign points (. , : ; etc.) are unacceptable. If you start to disregard at least one of these premises, you're automatically out of the team.
- Know how to make good levels. There'll be a topic apart about it soon.
- Be faithful. Other members can share their stuff to you, but you MUST promise them the absolute privacy and NOT sharing of the mentioned stuff, unless the person who sent them allows you to do so, in that case it's ok, but generally it's forbidden sharing private stuff.
- Respect all the rules. Nothing to say, it's clear enough.
- Be creative. It's important that every member of that group should have good ideas. Not be a "copycat", otherwise you're out of the team. (suggested by Crist1919)
- Be open for critique. It's completely normal that people do mistakes. It's not wrong that some people may don't like your games/ideas not only because of said problems with glitches/bugs, but also because of level design etc. If someone criticize you, you shouldn't take that for yourself as an insult, but rather as an idea/suggestion. (suggested by Crist1919)
- Have computational/mechanical experiences. This would include programming experiences and stuff like that. One needs to be able to use not just the MMF/CTF programming language, but also have other programming experiences. This is because by knowing other programming languages, you have already been trained in logical reasoning and you know how to do careful code checks and troubleshooting, as well as having a coding mentality that allows to you use succinct code and still compute/program/mechanize what you want to write. (suggested by Mariogeek1234)
- Have a decent English grammar. 99% of the people around here is not native English. Everyone knows it and it's completely normal, but having at least a B1 grade of English acknowledgement as a second language is needed. (suggested by Mariogeek1234)
- Don't be a liar. If you're going to say "yes" or "I can handle it" to every condition written above, at least I need a proof of what you've said (for example, if you have enough experience, I could ask you for some levels you've made, and I'm expecting that they're well made. If you haven't, or if you have but they're really bad made, then you've lied, so you're out even before have joined). If you don't prove your conditions, then you're not allowed to join the team.
Hope everyone have their ideas more clear now. If any moderator or high-level member wants to suggest other conditions, feel free to post them.
