      Starts: June 2nd, 2019
      Ends: June 12th, 2019


      tab We're doing a quick flash hiring, meaning we're seeking a certist ASAP. We will only be hiring one, and are looking for someone who can cert every week. If you think you can be our full-time certist then please apply!

        Rules:
      • Everyone interested must use the forms here, even current staff.
      • If you cannot handle customers or customer service, do not apply. Certists are a part of the team and expected to step in during situations and help moderate the community.
      • You do not need prior b/c experience, but you need to be familiar with our shop lore and what we can and cannot do in-lore. You also need to be fairly comfortable in identifying what a ponies breed is.
      • It's not suggested to apply in hopes to change lore or mechanics. The shop is pretty cemented with it's current features and lore, and while we're of course adding more as time goes on, what we have is what Nym is happy with, and it's not exactly up to be revamped.
      • We do not need to justify our choices in hiring. While we will post here our hiring picks, we do not need to defend why we picked certain members. It's unfortunate, but we just can't hire everyone. We need to be at a manageable size.
      • You need Discord.
      • You will be put on a 60 day trial upon hiring. Once it's determined you fully understand staff duties and shop lore, you might be taken off probation early.
      • We have our own server on WinSCP. It's a program you will need to download to have access to, as it has our lines and it'll be where your colorist folder is.
      • You must have PS or something similar that can handle text editing.
      • Don't mess with the forms. Fill them out as needed.
      • You can edit your entry up until closing of hiring.


      What We Are Looking For:
      tab We are seeking someone active and can be on top of certing every week. Certing is a high demand job and is how people get their ponies shop official. They cannot RP, breed, or use their ponies without a cert. You will need to be present, certing at least once a week, and quick to fix mistakes.

      tab While we always try to be understanding, vanishing for several weeks may cause removal and hiring of a new certist due to how needed certing is. However, this does not mean you'll be fired for tending to real-life. If something comes up and you need a person to take over just contact Nymphiea for the time you'll be gone. She will take over certing. Concern will only be shown in times you abruptly vanish or begin to demonstrate you're growing tired of certing.

      What We Are Not Looking For:
      tab We are not looking for those who want to overhaul M4S or try and change things to fit their own standards. We also are not looking for anyone who wishes to immediately try for another position. We will want to see that you're on top of certing and can handle that current workload.

      tab We also are not looking for anyone who wishes to try and change how certing is done. Colorists have individual drop off threads in the guild, and they have their own folders on the server. You will be dropping certs off in the guild under the correct threads, and you will be uploading them following the numbering system. We also do not want to change how the cert looks, either.

      tab We also are not looking for anyone combative or cannot get along with customers/staff, and cannot take direction. You will be redirected at times. The owner has final say, and you might be told to fix something. We expect friendliness and the willingness to work with the team.

      Certing Application Requirements


      tab You must have PS or an equivalent program, be ready to download new fonts, and understand how to had glow as an effect.

      tab TO REQUEST THE CERT FILES TO APPLY, DM Nymphiea on Discord. We are not putting them up on Gaia to prevent theft. You will need these fonts: Silkscreen, RM Ginger, and Kube Vertiko

        General Rules:
      • Every uncert must be shop official. You cannot cert anything not on the server, regardless if the pony is the correct one. This is primarily due to the fact the server numbers uncerts. You'll need that info. It is not expected for you to go out of your way to drag up the official uncert if a customer does not provide it. If a customer does not provide the correct uncert you are expected to spoiler the post and quote the owner to fix said post.
      • You will need to extend the canvas at times to fit a pony in. Do NOT crop out a pony or attempt to resize them to fit the base size of the cert. Expand the canvas.
      • The PNG should have a transparent background.
      • You'll be tested during the application process. Some information provided for sample certs may be incorrect. A breed may be wrong, an uncert may not be official, etc. It is up to you to correct the info.
      • Ponies are resized before being placed on the cert. The resize chart is as follows (and should be in the PSD itself). Do not worry about Alicorns/Awakened.
        + 42% for baskets
        + 45% A foal
        + 42% B foal
        + 42% A Adult
        + 42% B Adult
      • For PS users, we use Outer Glow around the pony. The blend mode is screen, opacity is 75%, spread is 0, size is 5%, and color is #ffffbe. The PSD should have a few ponies with that style on them, so check out the settings and mimic them for the ponies you cert.


        Samples:
      • You will be certing the kids below. They will have forms that are from the certing thread. Check them carefully to ensure the info is correct. If you find an error please indicate what the error is. Remember, uncerts not from the official server do NOT get certed, while other incorrect info on a cert is corrected automatically by the certist. If you find a form with an error please in your application indicate the error and what you did to fix/address it. The url will also say who colored the pony, so check that, too!

Do you have Discord: yes
Why do you want to work here: I want to work and help get ponies out to folks. I enjoy the shop and atmosphere. And honestly doing things for a shop helps keep me active and the other shops I am in are quite.

How many times a week can you cert: varied 2-7
Prior B/C experience: Part time colorist in Modifoxes. Shop owner Drifts.

Examples of previous work: I do all the certs

Certing Examples: one, two, three, four, five, six
Certs:
First pony- Artist name wrong. correct it.. Quote patron to let them know and move onto the next pony.
Second pony wrong breed. correct it.. Notify patron to the breed guide and let them know
Third pony wrong image hosting. I check the mule posts and find the official drop but it might be faster to message or quote the patron and have them fix in the cert request. I would need this to verify artist so original link is needed.

Certist Application
General Info:
Username: Sesshiyasha
Hours spent on Gaia each day: Uhhhh Almost constantly as Even when I'm at work I'm checking my phone and pulling things? So Idk.... 15 hours/Day?
Do you have Discord: Yups >.> Starla#4298
Why do you want to work here: Ok so.... There once was this Nymph.... and she decided to take on all the things ever and run everything by herself. Gradually we saw the Nymph in this state of Controlled chaos.... "Please... Let us help...." we begged.... "Nah Bean I got this!" came the reply. "Nym We Love You.... Let Us Help!" ..... "You are so kind Bean, I got this! <3" Finally.... After what seemed like Eons of waiting... Nym went "So we got a bit bigger and I might like some help...." "FINALLY NYM DEAREST!! LET US HELP YOU!!!" "I... I love you guys -Weeps-"

Basically this community is really wonderful, everyone here is amazing and I loves them all. I want to help since it's in my blood to HELP... and I'm a fixer in personality so when I see a problem or someone says "Can you help?" I WANT TO FIX THEIR PROBLEM INSTANTLY. So basically... I loves peoples and wants to help?!
How many times a week can you cert: How many times do you want it? -Winks-

No really... I can pretty much do any day of the week aside from maybe Weds & Thurs as those are raid nights in WoW... Friday and Saturdays will be my days off from everything not on the computer so I can definitely do those! <3
Prior B/C experience: Ummm Well this one is interesting.... Let's see....
My first thing I did was Cert and color for Realm of Elysium, then I certed for Forever Tree, Then I Colored for Duality for a while, Then Certed and managed some colorists for Paws & Claws.... Which I still am a part of! <3

Certs: Please list any errors you found on the forms and what you did or would do to fix them/address them.
Strawberri Kiss - Ok... This one threw me a bit... Not only was she included in the Cert PSD and I had to question what was wrong to the point I took her official Uncert, redid the FX on it, and resized to the accurate size, but she had the wrong Colorist.
I would have corrected this and added a quote just so the Owner could update their journal accordingly. I know I like to track who I have pones from so maybe other people do? (IDK I'M PRETTY WEIRD THOUGH <3)

Amore - Ok so Amore here had the wrong Breed listed. I fixed this on the cert, but I would drop a polite PM since I don't wanna call them out and make them embarassed <3 Who knows maybe they didn't realize. I would include some links to the guides and I would offer my assistance in any way they needed <3 ^.^ WE ARE HERE TO HELP!! ^.^ <3

Ishmael - WARNING NYM WARNING!!!! -Alarms Sound- THIS UNCERT IS NOT OFFICIAL!!! DO NOT CERT.... SEE BELOW QUOTE.....

This is how I would fix <3 ^.^ ((I did still cert him for an example of how I would have certed had he been the Official Uncert Link))
Cert Me!

Owner: Nymphiea
Pony: xxx
Pony Name: Ishmael
Breed: Aquatic
Seasonal Alignment: Summer
Drop-off Date: 1.23.2019
Gender: Male
Colorist: Nymphiea


Nymphiea
Please repost this with using the official shop link. Once you do that Ishmael will be free to join everyone else in Everchange. Thank You! <3


Morgan - Ok so Morgan.... Morgan was a bit tricky for me.... as she decided she WANTED TO BE HALF SHADOWS!! Soon I rectified this and coaxed her into being her full self for a cert.... But... I needed to document her difficult behavior here.... Aside from this, She had the wrong colorist listed. I corrected this and would quote the Owner so they know which drop off thread to check for certs! <3

Zachary - Ok... So.... Morgan might have corrupted him as bit... as HE ALSO JOINED THE SHADOWS!!
Zachary also had the wrong breed listed. As above I would still send the owner a PM so they didn't feel embarrassed about the mix up and offer my never wavering Love & Assistance if they have any questions or needed anything, after all... they have this shadow troublemaker.....

Kiwi - Ok... SO Kiwi looks fine.... Everything Looks Accurate... so this must be a lie.... but I'm not entirely Sure WHERE the lie is.... But maybe... just maybe there's a mischievous little pone inside that basket? Only time will tell <3

((I do hope anyone reading this enjoys the ride.... Sesshi wanted to at least make one person laugh, if she has accomplished that and still shown that she is maybe a professional Huma---- Creature? then she is happy <3 REMEMBER Sesshi Loves You All!!))
