As the title states, we are looking to hire two new Magistrates. I want to take the time to thank both Scudi (Kelly) and Bentre both for their service to the Shadow Academy. This is reflected in both of their promotions to EQ4.
Both Marcus and myself have been discussing how we want Magistrates to function overall in the coming year that we are looking to have them stay on. The details and requirements are below. I do want to stress that as Magistrate you will be tasked with some pretty heavy work. There are several courses that will be rewritten as well as a few new ones that you will be a major part of. I ask that you look into being on the team for 12 months and if you can make that time investment.
For a while Magistrates in the SA were restricted to project work, assisting professors with their edits, and general busy work like covering other people’s courses, and of course grading those courses that fall outside the 24 hour deadline. We’re going to change that. Yes, this will all still be a part of the Magistrates repertoire, but we are pulling some work away from Professors and even from the Praetor, to give to the Magistrates. This comes at a small cost though: We are also beefing the requirements for becoming a magistrate. More on that below.
The magistrate position is a run-and-stop position. One moment you’re comfortably sitting in your hoverchair, flicking through a holocron, the next moment the Headmaster busts in, yells something about a new course, and disappears in a burst of smoke. So what do you do, you head to the Praetor and they explain that they need three new courses because the new movie came out and it’s now up to you to go ahead and write those. You have a week.
Okay that’s mildly overstating it. Sera doesn’t disappear in clouds of smoke. He shimmers out of existence. A week is a little short but overall that is the kind of flow you can expect.
If you are interested in a Magistrate position, please email your applications to both [Log in to view e-mail addresses] and [Log in to view e-mail addresses]. Failure to comply with this directive gets your application binned. Applications will run for two weeks.
Applications are due no later than server reset on February 14th.
