QA (Quality Assurance) is like the middle child in the list up there that no one pays much attention to, but trust me, we need QA folks all the time. More QA folks trying to break new stuff means fewer things break when it goes live. QA staff are one of the most important things we use and abuse here, and we can always use more of them.

The best part is, you only need to know how to play on Avlis, and how to follow a checklist of things to do on a special QA server when testing stuff (we even let you DM there!). If you can play, read instructions, and post a reply after playing, you probably have a good chance of being approved. QA feedback is a big factor in the development of new stuff too!

You also get to hang out with the cool folks on the dev side of the staff server and see what we really say about stuff (mostly cat pics from Hamlet, but we have our moments :roll: ).

Not all that many cat pics, either. -Hamlet
