Ok, it just seemed unusual. Like I said, we pretty extensivly check into potential devs because it's kind of like we are brining you into a close-knit family on that side. We have to be sure we can trust you, and that you'll fit-in with the team.

Alright, that's fine I guess.

Should I be doing something to prove myself, or should I continue to wait, as it's been over a week with no replies.

Sorry about that! We've been pretty busy this week.

Can you make a concept for a new mouse?

What do you mean, "A new mouse," like the small fury kind?
That's kind of an odd request.

If it is that; probably just have mice have a light check every few ticks, and if it's too bright, they try to find a turf with less light.
Have mice breed if there's two, but have a global mice cap to prevent too many mice.
Maybe have mice chew on cable wires, killing them in the process but cutting the wire, so engineers have to follow cable lines.
Have them eat food as well, just to be an annoyance to marines who leave food out.
I'd imagine small changes to make them an annoyance, but not one that either side would have to pull an extermination campaign on.

I'm not sure, but I think Joshuu meant a "new concept" as a "new sprite".

I kinda like the current mouse sprite though. It's small and cute, and I don't feel like it really clashes with the style that much.

Dev apps can sometimes take a long time. It took nearly a month for us to bring on BMC way back. It depends on a lot of the situation, and how involved they've been with CM in the past. For example, someone who's been around a long time who's been talking with us or is generally know and isn't a shitter could be much faster than someone who has been around less than a month.

You aren't just joining a team, our devs and upper staff are a VERY close knit group so you're joining that. We do a lot of investigating and looking into people as well because we've had a lot of people in the past try to join the team JUST to get access to the code-base for various diabolical reasons. So far, people haven't been successful.

Do you have requests for, like, machines?
I tend not to do well with organic designs, trying to make something that looks alive from scratch just throws me off.

Can you make a washing machine in our perspective style?

Sure, but what's wrong with the current ones that they don't fit the perspective style?
They seem to to me.

We are replacing many sprites to our new standard. But it's also sort of a test.

It's become apparent that our team-oriented structure will not be a good fit for you through some of the comments you've made and the responses you've given to requests for you to complete a couple of tasks. We are denying this application.
