Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

Attention, handlers:

It is staff's pleasure to announce the addition of several new members to the staff team in preparation for V6 Pregame. We had a large pool of solid applicants, but in the end we narrowed our selection down to the following four individuals:

Congratulations to Deamon, Slam, and TurtleTyrant, who are joining the team as full staffers. They have all the powers and responsibilities that entails, and should be treated with the same respect as any staffer.

Congratulations also to BetaKnight, who we're taking on in an experimental capacity. Due to her long and valuable service on the staff team, we were willing to discuss an alternative arrangement when BetaKnight informed us that she was interested in helping out with critiques but did not want the responsibility of being a full staff member. The position we have granted her will give her the same powers as any staffer when it comes to critiques, and no powers or responsibilities with regards to any other facet of the site. She will have access to the Staff Lounge and will have the option of supplying advisory commentary should she so desire, but she will not have a vote in any proceedings and will not be expected to read anything staffside that does not directly relate to applications. She is not to use SOTF_Help or the chat op password. Her position will expire at the end of the V6 application period and she will be returned to the status of a normal member, unless she chooses to take and successfully passes the next staff test.

This is an experiment we are engaging in because of BetaKnight's history and proven responsibility and because of the nature of her desired duty. Critiques tend to be the most time-consuming and least popular facet of staff work, and therefore are an area where we were willing to allow some greater leeway for someone with proven competence in handling them. BetaKnight took the first part of the staff test along with the other applicants and performed well. She has handled a great number of critiques in the past, during her tenure on the V4 and V5 staff teams. We have full confidence in her abilities.

This is not a position we have any plans of formalizing or hiring for in the future. We are not looking to take on other assistant staffers; any task besides profile approval can either be handled internally or is of limited enough scope and duration that we see no need to create a specific and persistent position for it. We also would not want to take on any assistants who do not have recent experience on Main staff.

To all those who were not chosen for staff: this was a difficult decision. We had a really good pool of applicants, and we think many of you may well make fine staffers in the future. This round of hiring saw the greatest ever success of repeat applicants, all of whom made huge leaps in their demonstrated ability. All applicants not selected should have been informed by PM by now. We have feedback drafted already, available shortly following a request sent to SOTF_Help.

Please do not address questions or comments regarding the test to individual staffers, as doing so is awkward for the staffer and may lead to you being given incorrect information, since no single staffer speaks for the whole team.

Anyhow, congratulations to the new additions to the team. We're thrilled to have you aboard.

All hail our hopefully benevolent gods. Or at least hope we can direct the bloody tyranny at others with the use of goat sacrifice.

Congrats you guys! You're going to do great :)

So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
