Today I'm happy to announce that Shotbow is opening up staff applications for the Localization Team.
Before you check out the application, let me tell you a little bit about what this team does for the network.
If you don't know what localization means, it is essentially a fancy word for translation. On the Localization Team we translate things like the Rules, YouTube videos, Ban Appeals and much more. The goal is to have access to as many languages as possible in order to reach a wider audience; and that is only possible with your help.
If you want to know who is already on our team, just check out the Staff Wiki page at the very bottom and you'll see what languages we currently support.
- Applications will remain open but we no longer need applications for the following languages
Below is the application: follow and read it carefully and I will start to go through the applications after a week or so. Even if you are not accepted on the team, I will send you a reply on the forums so keep an eye out for that! Replies will come anywhere between 1 week and 2 weeks so be patient
Thank you for reading and good luck!

Applications close the February 26th
I'm happy to announce that the MTA Staff Team will now be opening up applications for the 2nd To handle in its existence and i think its about time we get some fresh faces upon us! we're looking people to take on some new team members from our community to guide new players as they learn the ropes in MTA.
Diversity. Shotbow maintains a global playerbase. With this MTA has significant German, Japanese and Dutch populations. While not required by any means, we encourage those players who are fluent in languages beyond English to apply.
As a team member you will be entrusted with information pertaining to the network that may under no circumstance reach the public ear. We need players that we can confidently provide such information to with no doubt about their ability to
Keep it internal. You will be the voice of the Network. We will expect you to represent us appropriately.
Any black marks on your record may have an impact on our discussion, but will not necessarily disqualify you from making the team.
Falsifying any field on your application will result in its immediate rejection.
Applications will be left open for just shy of a month. During this time, We will be reviewing and discussing each application we receive and selecting those candidates we feel are most qualified for training. Once the applications are closed, all those who make the final list will be contacted personally over the forums via PM.
Do note: Applying here does not guarantee a position on a mini-admin team. You will not be contacted if your application is turned down for whatever reasons this time around.
Link to the application form may be found here. Please take the time to answer each field with as much detail as you can provide.
Best of luck to all you!
