Empire Contributor Application
This application is for those who wish to use some of their solid writing and creative talents to help better Empire Minecraft in various ways across its network. Currently, Empire Contributors write for and maintain the Empire Wiki and the Empire Blog, but we are also looking to recruit people who can assist in creative graphics as well as these areas. Contributors can also submit bug reports for Developers. By filling out this application, you should have an interest in being active in keeping both the Wiki and Blog full of quality, relevant and/or interesting content.

If we'd like to find out more about you, you may be contacted to provide further content, but otherwise you will only be notified if your application is accepted.

Research Skills
Keeping the wiki updated and accurate (and the blog interesting) often requires you to have good research skills to gather plenty of accurate information. This section is going to test your research skills by asking various questions and determining how you would act in various situations as a Contributor.

Your Sample Blog Submission
We'd like our Empire Contributors to make blog posts to our official blog.

Use this section to write a short (200-300 word) blog post you think would be appropriate to feature on the blog. Posts can be informative, nuanced, interesting and/or unique concerning a Minecraft-related topic. Ideally, what you write should be based on real events/concepts/updates/features/etc. Put some effort into what you write, even if you have to make it shorter, and make sure that it is unique (e.g. don't write about something already widely known or on the blog already).

Let your creative juices flow. There are plenty of topics you could write about, including (but DEFINITELY not limited to) short-but-advanced MC guides or spotlights on things people want to know about. Note that the content of the Blog is very different to that of the Wiki.

Use correct punctuation, grammar, spelling and word choice as you will be judged on not just what you write about but also how you type it.

Your answer
Ability to edit/maintain the wiki.
We'd like our Empire Contributors to be able to make rational decisions regarding the editing and maintenance of the current Wiki.
In this part of the section, we will ask you to spot two errors on the Wiki or two improvements which can be made. Provide the original content, your amended content and your reason for changing it for each.

Try and highlight more advanced errors than simple word/language errors and make solid suggestions.
1st change A: Original content *
Just copy and paste the relevant paragraph(s)
Your answer
1B: Re-write what you pasted, with the edits *
Either fixing an advanced error (e.g. wrong info) (if possible) or making an improvement somewhere
Your answer
1C: Why were your adjustments necessary? *
Note that content doesn't need to be removed if it is substantive and relevant to the topic
Your answer
2nd change A: Original content *

Your answer
2B: Re-write what you pasted, with the edits *
Either fixing an advanced error (e.g. wrong info) (if possible) or making an improvement somewhere
Your answer
2C: Why were your adjustments necessary? *

Your answer
A player tells you that a staff rank of 'Super Staff' existed between March to August 2014 and suggests that you add it to a relevant Wiki page because it is currently missing. Explain how you would respond and act upon hearing this as a Team member who's job it is to maintain the Wiki. *
Be thorough in answering this question. What do you do? Do you add it to the Wiki, like they suggested?
Your answer
Finally, please write a short, original summary paragraph for the Shulker Minecraft mob. *
This should contain all pertinent information, using your knowledge of EMC's Wiki to devise what that might include. Notice any patterns with how most of OUR Wiki's pages start?
