ModDB is looking for a few good men (or women) to join its ranks and expand its coverage of the mods listed across the site. Our community consists of a variety of modding groups, the most prevalent one being FPS mods. However, if you look carefully, you'll notice entire sub-communities that gather around different RTS, RPG and Simulation mod projects. We want to recognize the efforts being put into some of these often overlooked projects on the site and so we're putting out a call for volunteers. Think you have what it takes to join the ModDB crew? Prove it to us! Here's how you can apply:
- Find a non-FPS mod to focus on and write a feature about it. This can be anything from a full review or developer interview to a preview of an upcoming build. The key here is to concentrate on mods that have released or are close to releasing. All features should demonstrate an active interest in the subject and colorfully illustrate the specifics of a gameplay experience. We're looking for people who can offer constructive critiques that draw from a history of gaming and exposure to the modding scene.
- Once you've completed a draft, post your article under the features section on ModDB. Make sure to pay attention to the formatting and grammar as best as you can. If you need to see some examples of how ModDB staff formats official editorial content, check out these links:

- Finally, PM me (stenchy) with a link to your article. Also include a quick mention of your gaming and modding history with the reason why you want to join the ModDB staff.
I'll be reviewing entries as they come in and giving approval to exceptional content for the front page and possibly the headlines. On March 20th (two weeks from now) ModDB staff will choose the top five articles. As an added bonus, the writer of each will be offered a spot on our volunteer staff roster as well as a copy of World in Conflict. I would put a countdown timer (mmm, countdowns) here, except I don't want this to devolve into some contest for a game. We're looking for long-term volunteers that share our passion for the modding and indie game scene. As ModDB continues to grow, we'll have plenty of opportunities to share perks and offer advancement to the most active staff members. Serious applicants only, please. Thanks.
