Quote from: Zone on Dec 29, 2007, 11:53 PMMany of my friends ask me to make them GMs on the server I GM for.I tell them they need previous experience, but how can one have previous experience unless someone gives them a chance?I was given a chance by BragiRO, and I grew into the mindset from there.While I was new to GMing, everyone on the server liked me.Now on neRO, only 3 dislike me for banning one of them for excessive rule breaking [View Topic]Other than that, people enjoy me being a GM for them.I am just one example of how someone who has never GM'd before, becoming one of the most helpful, and important GMs for a server.Back to the question.What is it you look for to hire someone as an intern to learn to GM, when they have had absolutely no previous experience?

Ability to script should not be a priority whatsoever. If you can't manage the server editing yourself then don't make one, it's as simple as that. Relying on others to write code or edit your server is dooming it to failure 98% of the time. One thing I've done is give Interns homework assignments. They should report to me once a week with their hours per day, every week it's due by Friday. This has become quite an effective method of staff evaluation. Regardless of what you see when you first meet a person, it doesn't mean anything until you see them in action.
QuoteI guess for me I'm strongly biased about I'd only hire players who are 17+ years old, kids are pretty unstable, they'll act loyal one day and next day break the rules you try to implement and justify it was something else, and yes I've had first-hand experience on the matter ~~;
