    Hello!

    I'm writing this post today to clarify what appears to be a lot of confusion surrounding our Developer Applications.

    What are the things that developers DO NOT do?
    - Developers do not build maps on our servers. Builders, or "Imagineers" are people that are selected from our team of Guest Relations Squires and Knights, or the Creator Project.
    - Developers are generally not on the server to help with guest issues or answer questions. Developers are not considered Guest Relations.

    We're seeing a lot of applications come in from people who are looking to build on our servers, or help guests in chat, run shows, etc. This is definitely not what a Developer is. Please keep an eye out for when we open Guest Relations applications, these are the applications that you'll be looking for.

    Alright, so what are some things that Developers do?
    - Developers create the back-end of our server. They write the code that makes things tick.
    - Developers also create our website, and other resources. They work on updates surrounding the forum, and other tools that the staff team use.

    Okay cool! So what do I need to know to become a developer at Palace Network?
    - Depends on what you specialize in! We're looking for both Web Developers and Plugin Developers; but here's some pretty basic requirements.

    Plugin Developer
    Must have experience with Java & creating Minecraft Plugins. Our back-end is pretty substantial and this is not a learning position.
    Must have the ability to work on delegated tasks alone and as a team.
    You should be OK with asking for help, and receiving constructive feedback. Mistakes are always welcome, and warranted, but as a team we want you to build off of other's strengths.

    Web Developer
    Must have experience with HTML, PHP, JS, & CSS. We're currently using Typescript and Angular2 for back-end systems that you would most likely be working on as well.
    You should have a keen eye for design. We don't want a massive button in a place where it shouldn't be, etc.
    Must have the ability to work on delegated tasks alone and as a team.
    You should be OK with asking for help, and receiving constructive feedback. Mistakes are always welcome, and warranted, but as a team we want you to build off of other's strengths.

    Please note, these are just base requirements. If you meet all these requirements and still don't make it on-to the team, it's because we're looking for something specific.

    Real applications with these qualifications met may receive a response - but please do not expect a response. We receive quite a few applications on a daily basis and won't be able to respond to them all.

    I hope this helps!
