(APDG) Area00 Player Development Group

  The idea behind the Area00 Player Development Group Area00 is an online community. It is full of players who come regularly to play alongside their friends, fight against their enemies, and prove themselves in Area00 virtual skies. Any online community has all kinds of players in it. Like any open group of fairly anonymous people, Area00's online community needs people to oversee it and manage it and make it pleasant for all, getting the best out of all the players, if that community is to grow and be healthy.

  The membership in Area00 Player Development Group is the mechanism by which the most dedicated members of the Area00 community manage that community. Each member of the APDG helps develop a better gaming community by helping Area00 Development Team and Tony Choe the founder of the game.

  What kind of person should seek to be a member of the Area00 player Development Group?

  Being in the APDG is a privilege that Area00 grants to its most dedicated players. Members of the APDG do not have to be the best players in the game, but they have to have the highest level of dedication to the game and its community. ADPG members must have, as their primary interest, the growth of the community highest in their minds. To that end they need to conduct themselves with maturity so that new players to the game can be found, recruited, trained and be made to feel that they have a home.

  Members of the APDG are the community managers, working together with the ADT to make Area00 a challenging, exciting and, above all, welcoming place for players. Working together means exactly that sharing information and ideas with the other APDG and ADT members that can improve the game, its mechanics, its flow and its atmosphere.

If you think that this describes how you would like to contribute to Area00, then you should apply to APDG by using the link on the Area00 homepage.
