Title: Whataburger Tester Application
Post by: Whataburger on March 14, 2017, 02:47:51 am
Q1. What is your main character's in-game name?

Whataburger/Askalon

Q2. What is your real name?

Alfonso Reyes

Q3. Where in the world are you located?

worn down couch in Austin, Texas, USA

Q4. How old are you?

22 years old

Q5. Have you played Retail? If so, for how long?

Played TBC retail for about a year. Have been playing on VG since August 2014.

Q6. Tell us a little about yourself.

Computer programmer and technician by day, world chat shitter by night.
Studied electrical and biomedical engineering in university, taking some time off at the moment from school because I got burnt out.
WoW has definitely become one of my passions, in particular delving into often underestimated specs such as balance druids and protection paladins.
Have programming experience in MATLAB, ARM cortex stuff, VB, C#

Q7. Explain why you think you would be a good Tester.
I'm pretty familiar with debugging principles and computer science methodology, so I more than likely can make descriptive bug reports.

Q8. What interests you most about becoming a Tester ?
Mostly I want to verify that all weapons, armor, consumables, and companions/guardians with special equip effects work properly in order to get closer to achieving an authentic vanilla blizzlike experience in VG.

Q9. Do you know WHAT a Tester does? Please explain.
Testers follow bug tracker made by developers and determine state of bugs, from replication to technical support.

Q10. What do you think is the most important thing a Tester can do?
Test stuff well

Q11. If you were going to submit a suggestion for us, what would it be?
Make VG great again. Vanilla WoW stood out from other expansions because of the IMMENSE variety of unique items with unusual spells and effects, and I want to help bring that wonder back to this server.

Q12. What positive additions could you (or do you already) make to the server/Community?
I have proven to the server that balance druids and protection paladins are not as cancerous as previously thought, and are a force to be a reckoned with. also i made shitty guides for both specs

Q13. Professionalism, integrity, and honesty are required at all times. In what ways do these words describe you?
Professionalism - I don't talk about my sex life in public.
Integrity - My bone density has a T-score of -0.50, so I have good integrity.
Honest - If I don't like someone, I'll express my opinion about it. (/spit Sins)

Q14. Have you ever been disciplined by a Gamemaster on VanillaGaming?
Several times, but for very immature things.
Sometimes I have been warned about using exploits I discovered even though the exploits existed in vanilla retail and could therefore count as acceptable blizzlike mechanics, despite the fact it may have been unintentional.

Q15. What can you do to help the server grow?
Spread of the word of VG on reddit and facebook.

Q16. Is there anything else that you would like the Staff to know?
I dream of getting a Thundefury someday.

Q9. Do you know WHAT a Tester does? Please explain.
Testers follow bug tracker made by developers and determine state of bugs, from replication to technical support.

Err... bug tracker is not made by developers, but by product managers after users report the bugs.
The product manager decides which bugs have priority and pass them to the team leader.
The team leader then decides which developer is more capable to fix it depending on several other variables.
The developers fix it and put it to review by the team leader.
Then the team leader sends it to QA and then you test it to make sure it functions as expected.

At least this is what I see every day.

Apart from that they should've given you an answer already.
Its not like you are going to have access to the code or something.
Besides every helping hand is good, specially one as capable as yours seems to be.

Hello there Whataburger,

thanks for your application, we always appreciate players coming forth that want to improve the server.
However, we have to reject your application, I'm sorry.
Declined.
