If you are reading this, you are likely considering applying for an official position in Skynet Gaming.

On behalf of the Staff team, I'd like to thank you for your interest in our community!

With that being said, please take time going over this thread to understand important information detailing our application process and requirements for each specific rank.


 

Application forms should not be filled out via creating a new topic.

Please apply via the application system here: https://skynetgaming.net/apply/

Applications not completed through the application system will be denied!

 


 

The following positions are available via the application process:

  • Server Admin
  • Super Admin
  • Operator
  • Event Team (Council)
  • Editorial Team (Council)
  • Mentorship Team (Council)
  • Interview Team (Council)
  • Mapper
  • Designer
  • Prospective Developer

*If you do not see a position listed here, it is likely because it is not a rank that can be obtained by applying.

Various ranks within the community can only gained through manual promotion by higher staff after showing promise for specific roles.

For a FULL list of all ranks within the community, you can view our Staff page.

 


 

It is absolutely essential that you link your SteamID to your forum account. In-game server permissions are handled via forum integration, so failure to link up will cause you to have no in-game admin permissions if you are accepted!

If you need to unlink or are having issues with linking your Steam account, please view the following thread.
