Apply for Staff: Content
You're viewing the job description and application for the Content Team.
The Daily Neopets is seeking exceptional content writers. If you enjoy writing high-quality articles and are an experienced Neopets player, this job may be for you! As a content writer, you would be responsible for writing new articles about Neopets features (i.e. any feature we've missed in the past or any new feature that is coming out). In addition to general helpful articles, content writers also write game guides for Neopets flash games. Overall, the position is rather flexible; you can choose to specialize in general helpful articles or game guides or choose to dabble in both.
Since this is a writing position, a full fledged article sample is required with your application. If you do not enclose a sample article that you've written with your application, you have no chance of being accepted.
Log in to The Daily Neopets frequently.
Check the Staff Chat, IRC, and emails.
Contribute new helpful articles or game guides on a regular basis.
Use TDN's staff panels to publish or update site content (we'll train you!).
Chat with our head of content, Xepha, frequently about upcoming events that may need to be covered or articles that need to be written.
Content staff also use our web-based ticket system to respond to visitor inquiries (such as article requests, spelling corrections, fixing outdated information, etc).
Here are a list of preferences we have. The following are not requirements for applying.
We're hoping to find content writers whose time zones permit them to cover events around 12 AM NST (i.e. Games Master Challenges, Advent Calendar, Daily Dare, and/or Altador Cup).
Guidelines for Applying
The people we're looking for must meet the following qualifications. If you do not, please do not apply as you will not be accepted.
We prefer applicants be at least 16 years old.
Our key methods of communication are IRC and email. Please make sure you're familiar with the basics of IRC and/or have a regularly-checked email account. We will expect you to use both in the long term.
We welcome people from all around the world to apply. However, you should have a firm grasp of English because The Daily Neopets is an English web site.
Applicants must not be staff at any other Neopets help site.
Most of our positions require an intermediate understanding of both HTML and BBCode.
We understand your content sample takes time. However, if you don't put your best foot forward, we'll also assume you won't put your best foot forward on staff at TDN. A sample is required otherwise your application will be rejected.
All TDN positions are volunteer positions. TDN is a Neopets fan site by Neopets fans for Neopets fans.
Please plan on doing this job for some time. We are not looking for people who will stick around for a month, then disappear. Please only apply if you know you'll enjoy it and have fun.
Please allow us up to 3 weeks to respond to your application.
