Sorry I only found this thread today.

Told you already Little Dog, you can count me in.
I'm bit busy now with the Bug tracker but I still have plenty of time to help people on Irc.
Oh and since I can only work from home at the moment (after my rock climbing accident this summer), I have a lot of time to dedicate to you.
I guess you can already tell by the unusual length and boredom inherent to my previous threads : )

Well, I'd love to be able to assist in anything, any way I can. I used to be a GM for WoWcrack, so I helped some folks out back in the day. I know a few things about PCs, and I try to stay on top of all things SWGEmu, so..if you guys need me, just let me know. Inyri, you talk to me on MSN from time to time, so feel free to do it there if you guys want me for anything

If you still need people I would be glad to help. Used to do IT helpdesk work back in the day so I know the drill. Timewise I might not be online as much as some of the others and working shifts at the hospital makes me come online at various times of the day. Let me know if you could use me.

I've always been interested! It's just I've been busy as of late, and the server is crashing consistently as well.

I've been helping people learn this game from day 66
As the leader of one of the oldest guilds on flurry I may have helped upwards of 1000 players learn upwards of a 1000 different things.

I work 3 days on 4 days off and am on the server most of my free time if it is up.
Even tho I quit swg in june after 5 1/2 years of playing, I am quickly finding a home in the Emu test world.

I would be more then happy to continue to do what i've been doing over the years
as long as I am not committed to any set schedule.
As much as I like to help and feel I am a social person,I also have a 4 year old running around the house so often I am not on live chat mode.

Send me /t if you have a question or need a hand. If im free then you have my attention.

Often you will find me in some remote area hunting spawns I have no right to solo,
But I will usually drop whatever I am doing if it means a chance to help someone find there way in this crazy sandbox.


Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either.

Personally I like helping people ingame, but I have been following this project for a year, and joined in April. Don't think I qualify for any staff positions, and have never been on the IRC, but I think its pretty fun helping people ingame.

The community helper position is not a staff position. It is providing support for other players in IRC room #swgemusupport. Everyone is welcome to apply if you can dedicate some active time to helping others in IRC.

Send odwill@swgemu.com an application email with the subject line: IRC Community Support Helper Application

Forum Name:
Character Names in Game:
Times available to help in IRC: (including timezone)
Days usually available:
References: (if any but not necessary)
Experience on this current TC:

Things considered when a player is selected for support are, but not limited to, a player's comportment and actions on IRC, TC and the forums.

Do not expect an immediate reply to the email. We evaluate the candidates when it is time to select more support helpers, which could be a week to several months away.

I would love to help in any way possible!

-Are you a close follower of the project?

yes, a recent devotee, but yes!

-Do you consider yourself well versed with SWGEmu, LPE, and NOVA?

like I said, relatively new here, but I'm an old hand from the original launch and am well versed in MMORPGs and game/distributed client/server architectures in general

-Are you good with computers?

Yes, I am an experienced sysadmin (linux, HP-UX, solaris), network engineer (CCNA,CCNE) and IT manager

-Do you enjoy helping out other players?

most certainly! that's what made pre-CU SWG great

-Are you an active IRC user?

I haven't been for years, but I'll dust off a client and start lurking again... ;-)

Not many of us from what I know are lucky to have as much experience as that, and for that I salute you and your over-the-top knowledge as well as what devotion you want to input.

I'm sure you will serve as an inspiration for us all, myself included.

Why isn't this guy being brought onto the dev team to offer some help/assistance/leadership/etc.. etc..

If he's already been approached then disregard my initial comment. But seriously if he hasn't then one of the devs needs to take a serious look at this fellow, approach him and make use of his talents and willingness to lend a hand sooner rather than later.

I recall hearing recently from several staff members something along the lines of (and I'm paraphrasing here) "finding people who have the knowledge, skillset, time, and willingness to offer assistance comparable to the devs are few and far between. They don't just fall off trees like apples".

Well there's your apple, go pick it up.
