As eSports and technology change, so must vVv Gaming adapt in order to stay ahead. Our first change is a reduction in the application time to 30 days. All applicants will be reviewed at the 30-day mark to see if they are a good fit for vVv Gaming. We can extend this if we feel it is needed, but we also want to do less babysitting, and we will also be more aggressive closing apps if they don't "get it" 30 days into the application process.
Most importantly, we decided that we needed a process that was more friendly and allowed applicants to tell us how THEY want to add value. Here are the methods that add value to vVv Gaming:
Bloggers: Link us to your blogs so that we can evaluate if they are a good fit for vVv Gaming.
Casters: Link us to examples of your casting so that we can determine if your content is a good fit for vVv Gaming.
Donator ($15 per month): You like to game. Your time is precious, you want a community of skilled, social and intelligent gamers. You want to be a part of vVv Gaming, but real life does not make it easy for you to add value in other ways, so you donate.
Game Guru (Subject Matter Expert): You know everything about a game. It’s not that you think you know everything about the game, it’s that everyone in the game respects your opinion. To prove that you are well respected, please share links to the game related forums proving your expertise.
Graphic Artists: Link us to examples of your work so we can determine if the style and skill are a good fit for vVv Gaming.
Socialite (vVv Forum Commando or loveable troll): You live in the vVv shoutbox. You love meeting new people and your posts are not just quantity; they are quality. When people log onto the vVv Gaming forums, you are one of those people whom everyone expects to see, and you make them feel at home.
Social Media Expert (Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, YouTube): You live on Social Media and are addicted with getting the latest information and sharing it with others. You can live on a diet of tweets, retweets, likes, follows, upvotes and comments.
Staff (Business Development, Sales, Team Manager, Tournament Organizer, etc): You’re professional. You have a resume full of positions that demonstrates your experience in eSports, Gaming or Community Development.
Streamers: Link us to your stream so that we can determine if you are a good fit for vVv Gaming.
Writers/Editors: Link us to articles so that we can determine if the content is a good fit for vVv Gaming.
Video Producer: Link us to your YouTube channel and other videos you've created so that we can determine if your content is a good fit for vVv Gaming.
You should notice that we want proof of what you did BEFORE applying to vVv Gaming for all the BOLD items. The two underlined items show ways to add value that do not require any previous proof. Again, we will evaluate you based on how YOU tell us that you will add value to vVv Gaming.
We will ask all applicants and vVv members to do at least ONE thing well every month. Some may always do the same thing well, some may switch it up. The key is to constantly add value. Of course, if you want extra credit, do more than one of these at a high level, but always do at least one really well.
Our next Chop-chop date is June 15th. You have 30 days to add value well. Good Luck.
