Sure, the economy is bad, and people are getting laid off by the hundreds of thousands every week, but everything's looking up for us. There are a large number of (unpaid!) positions now available at Bulbagarden; the positions, the qualifications one needs, and the method of application are listed below.
At a minimum, new staff members will receive a fancy name and special forums access, plus additional access depending on the position.
If you have any questions, as it says in most of the job descriptions, feel free to contact Archaic, myself, or any of the other administrators.
Please note that anyone may apply for any position, but we will take into account forum activity and tenure. Bulbagarden does not discriminate based on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, physical disability, or anything else covered under applicable federal, state, and local laws.
