    I look forward to Tubby changing his Twitter handle to @dtoidtubby and tweeting incessantly at Felicia Day.

    We handle all our publisher kickbacks as a group. Better results that way, we've found. (Inb4 GamerGate screencaps that.)

    But for realz, you'd need to ask Hamza. No idea if or how much contributors get paid these days.

    I remember Niero talking about his disdain for CVs and how it was high time to kill that outdated document, and how he hires "buena gente", so who knows, maybe you'll impress upon him your! buena gente qualities!

    Heck, if the commitment is just one news post per day + editorial, I'm now even considering applying myself, though I probably won't. My English-as-a-foreign-language status would likely be an instant disqualifier. That and, I'm a very, very private person, so I don't know if I'd be comfortable enough to show up on the FP using my real name.

    to me, support
    Thanks man! We'll get this fixed asap

    At the moment we don't have any public jobs posted but we're always looking to promote up from our top community bloggers. I was going to write something like "make sure you get fapped" but that just sounds wrong


    --------------
    I asked if they look for volunteers from Europe and mentioned the 8+ hour gap beside mentioning something which had to be fixed.Not sure if Yanier thought I asked for a real job ^^

    I wouldn't be so sure. Your English is very good. If you didn't mention it was a foreign language, I wouldn't know. I can understand your last point, though (especially in light of recent months).

    Hell, you right gooder than most of us on the FP do. I wouldn't let that stop you.

    And if I'm not mistaken, English is Hamza's second language as well.

    Honestly, if you can write a basic sentence, you're already more competent than Ian Bonds.

    He self-referenced a lot too, let's not forget that.

    Well, thanks! I've never lived in an English speaking country and I thought that showed, so it's nice to get validation of my language skills from you fine folks!

    So it's settled! I... probably won't apply anyways, but it won't be because of that!

    Honestly Caim, I thought you were from the UK until a few days ago when you let on that you were from South America.

    Don't ask me why I thought you were from the UK. It was just an idea I got in my mind somewhere along the way, and I never saw anything to suggest otherwise until now.
