The Coder Application


   This is the Deathwish MUD Coder's application form, designed specifically to allow for coders to apply for a position on the team for the development of the Deathwish MUD 5.1 beta source project.  Your application will be reviewed within 48 hours of submission, and you will receive a response via email if we are interested.

Prospective coders:

1) Must have a good working knowledge of Unix/Linux systems.

2) Must be able to answer a few miscellaneous questions on programming and
    debugging in the C language.

3) MAY first be asked to complete a short coding assignment.

4) Must be able to follow instruction and/or a list of coding tasks.  You will not
    be able to code anything you want.  No code will be installed into the MUD
    without the pre-approval of the Imp.  All new code is first examined and tested
    thoroughly before it is implemented.  If for any reason it is unsatisfactory,
    you will have to correct it and it will not be installed into the MUD until
    it works properly.

5) You MAY NOT ftp any files from the coder's copy on the machine under any
    circumstances with no exceptions.  Deathwish MUD's customized
    code is copyrighted.  A coder is NOT entitled to a full or partial copy of the MUD.

    MUD will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
