Many Major Server Events Each Week
We plan to hold a 1-hour long event, per server, per week. Once all is fully setup, you can expect a total of 9 TF2TightRope events each week. These events will be handled via the Steam group system and will easily show when the event is occurring for your location.
The time and day for each event will be announced via the Steam group, 3 days in advance. If you do not see a scheduled time for a specific server, it has either changed time or will not be happening for that particular week (for whatever reason).
While we are still working on hiring the last couple of staff needed, things will start out with only a few servers.
Incase you are interested in this paid position, the requirements are as follows:
Be of a mature age (typically 18+ is good).
Have had experience moderating a TF2 community in the past.
Have at least 500 hours of TF2 playtime registered on your Steam account.
Understand how time zones work and why.
Be punctual and keep a reliable time schedule.
Have a valid PayPal account.
It does not matter where you live and it does not matter your ping might be on a specific server.
The current rate of payment is $3 AUD per event hosted. The hosting employee will need to turn up for the event and stick around for the full hour.
