Posting and doing stuff just for a rank is the way to show that you only like badges and not responsabilities...

I'd imagine that you'd get that position by first becoming a translator, and working with translating for people and stuff. I'm not exactly sure how that would work. :P

I did not know you were on the smf site too, I though you were just on the Smfnew site. :P

I really don't think there is a need for this, not that it's incorrect, but because the team has already handled it privately, and I don't think this needs to be posted publicly. I personally, would find it quite humiliating, and I would definitely not take it well.
lowrida018, I don't know how to say this any way but straightforward.
You have been posting nonsensical and unhelpful comments all over the support boards for quite a few days. Your lack of knowledge on how SMF works is apparent.  You really need to do a lot less posting and a whole lot more reading, learning, and experimenting on your own board before you can offer support in any meaningful manner.  Your wild guess comments in the support topics only serve to confuse the OP looking for help.

Well, if it has already been dealt with, then I apologize. I have no intention of embarrassing anyone myself, simply pointing out a simple truth. I have seen these non-sense posts show up all over the place, and to be honest, they are quite irritating.

In this I'm very agree.

 I think that to get the team is a long way, I myself took almost 3 years in smf.

 and even now begin to know how it works  :P

Not everyone is welcome to the team, as there are personal dislikes  :D

feline,

it doesn't necessarily have to do with "personal dislikes" but rather, can the potential candidate work within our existing team structure and work with existing team members (and can those team members work with the candidate)?
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.

Yea Sir Kindred,

I think I have (also in my job as a beta tester) more often proved that I have skill. But obviously there are other reasons, which I just do not know.

As stated in OP that most will be invited to join the team starting from being support specialist. Thus, I believe that sharing your knowledge and understanding on how to solve problems to members the SMF ways will help a lot in showing your interest in becoming a team members in the positive way. You may also opt not to join if you are not ready or have other commitments or not interested in becoming team members at all. I know you are very good but I seldom see you are helping around a lot as it should be. A trait which may lead you to be offered by a team member to become one of the apprentice. Just another 2 cents from me.

    Posts often and regularly.  We need people who are active and able to contribute regularly.
  • I use to until I got a reply from a modder not to give support to his mode anymore... after that I stopped with helping on all mods
  • Quote
    Posts accurate information.  Not knowing the answer is fine, however posting a bad solution is worse than no solution.
  • I have always only posted only if a knew the answer or point in a directions to who could help
  • Quote
    Posts information in an easy to understand manner.  As the project has expanded, we are getting more users who don't have a vast experience with computers.  We need people who can help them out as well as the super geeks like me.
  • To me my replies are easy to understand :D for others with no computer skills I couldn't find the time for them.....
  • Quote
    Is respectful to the other users, especially when confronted with an opposing view.
  • Always have done with everything I do
  • Quote
    Ability to work as a part of a team.
  • love team work, always happy to give a helping hand if asked
  • Quote
    Has been contributing for a while.  We often get people who surge onto the scene but quickly fizzle out.  We are looking for people who will still be active a year or more from now.
  • I have made Mods and shared with others via email and re-edit mods for my self but left the copy rights to the creator as I don't want someone else credit
  • but will not shared them mod edits I have done on the boards, I send my moded mod to the creator for if he/she wants to use the edits they can.
I don't have time to get deeply involved as I have enough to do as it is. But I will be around for a long time yet and maybe next year who knows
I might take on something more involving like this.
