Recruitment Requirements. 5 posts. TS Time. Intro. App. You know, the normal stuff.


Thank You For Wanting To Join ADK!

Joining ADK Is Simple:
While we are open to having anybody in our community we do look for people who will be active in the community. We understand people do have reasons to take a leave of absence but we do ask for communication and at least make a topic in the members section if something in real life has come up and you need to take care of it. Real life will always have priority in all situations, we simply ask to just fill us in if you need to be away for awhile and so forth. You do not need to go into detail on the situation, just give us a heads up that's all in the members section.

Requirements To Be Accepted As An Official ADK Member:
We are glad that you have chosen =ADK= as a place to stay and we will be looking over your application and will get back to you shortly with your status in the auto generated thread your application will make. We do require new recruits to do a few things not only to prove they plan on participating and being active but it also gives everyone in a community a chance to meet and greet you as a person as well. While we are a laid back community we do ask for participation. It doesn't have to be 24/7 within the community, but participation is what makes this community grow and brings members together.

You must make a introduction post located here: Introduce Yourself.
Fill out a application loctated at the bottom of this page.
Have at least 20 forum posts.
Have 10 Hours of Time in our Team Speak
Have 10 Hours of Game time within our servers or games that we play.

- Those five things above are simply so we can gauge who we ae letting into the community. In your introduction post just simply say hi, how you found us or anything really. Your recruitment app is simply there so the recrtuitment department can know who is coming in and who to look out for in Teamspeak and give them applicant tags and so forth. The five forum posts (which your application and introduction count as two) is simply so we can get you to say hi and some interaction among the community. As far as Teamspeak goes we require that all recruits visit our Teamspeak to partake in games and such. Some people may be very shy about talking and thats fine, just visit and type, no one is here to judge anyone. This does not mean you have to be in Teamspeak everyday, just during the recruitment process.


Frequent Questions That Get Asked Alot

What do I need to say in my Introduction post?
This can be anything really. Just say hi, who you are, how you found us or even just a general whats up. It does not need to be overly complicated. We are a gaming community and more so a family. It's would be like walking into someones house and just shaking a few hands just letting people know who you are and so forth. You can always just say "Hi, my name is Bob or Susan and I play Hello Kitty Island Adventure! Glad to visit ADK!". Seriously, dont over think it.

Do I Have To Fill Out A Application?
Yes. This is mainly so we can keep track of who is coming in, what game you are joining us for and how you found us. This lets us know what areas of gaming are doing well and what avenues members are finding us through.

No One Is Replying To My Application?
All personal replys and such will be made on your introduction post, not your application. Your application is simply that, your app. It's just there for the recruitment department themselves and they will be the only ones replying on it for the most part. The community itself will be more focused on your introduction since thats where you are saying hi to everyone, not your app.

Teamspeak - Just A General Overview Of Basic Concerns
We are aware that some people are simply not comfortable using their actual voice to talk and may be shy or weary of strangers you are meeting on the internet for the first time but please do not let that discourage you. Just read below and you will find we are very relaxed when dealing with issues like those within our community.

Feel free to put ADKGamers.com as the referrer if downloading for the first time.

ADK Teamspeak Rules and Guidelines.

- We do ask that you join Team Speak as it does promote a fun environment while you are gaming. Even our founder was once a very shy individual when he first started gaming and being on a VOIP program like Team Speak. But over time it truly will bring you out of your shell and you'll start having a great time with everyone giving live feedback and really feel like you are communicating as a team. If you'd like to just hang out in the "I'm new lobby" you can do that until you get comfortable joining a room with 10+ people or simply typing in the Team Speak chat box until you get the courage to speak as well.

Someone Has To Vouch For Me?
Yes. This simply means that either a recruiter or game admin has played with you, spoke to you either in voice or text and is willing to say you would make a great member to the ADK family. Doing it this way brings more of a personable feel to community with actual person to person interaction rather then simply making someone a number like a job interview. This process can be as short as a few hours or take days, it all depends on your activity in saying hi in Teamspeak.

Am I Forced To Wear ADK Tags?
This one is a very grey area so let me explain a few things. If you are on something like Steam no, you do not need to make your Steam name "=ADK= Bob123". Your name is your name, simple as that BUT we would expect you to join the Steam group since you are part of the ADK community. Games like Planetside, Battlefield and such have platoons and outfits that you join that will automatically add the community tag to your name. Again, you keep your name, you don't have to change it, just join our outfit/platoon. Games such as MMO's have guilds and work the same way. If you have further questions then please, seek the game admin and ask them since each gaming section has different avenues for 'clan' type features.

Can I Be In ADK And Another Community?
We do not allow multi-community's. If you are going to be part of a community then we would like you to be with them totally. The only exception to this is if ADK does not support the game you want to join another community for then yes, you can. ADK does not have a gaming section for say Call of Duty series but you play it and want to join a community for it. Since ADK does not support it, you are more then free to be part of another community for that game jusy please let AOBLXIX, Nova or Dowin know before hand.

Am I ADK Since I Am Part Of...?
You must fill out an Application on the link button below to be accepted into the =ADK= Community before you can put the =ADK= Tags anywhere in your name. If you are in our Steam group, Planet Side 2 outfit, in the ADK Platoons on Battlelog, etc. . that does not mean you are an official =ADK= Member, you still need to fill out an app. While we are very happy you are part of any of our groups or social media outlets you still need to go through the actual recruitment process.

I Have A Question But Its Not Listed Here?
Please then feel free to message anyone on the recruitment staff with any of your worries or concerns or simply make a post in the recruitment section with anything you may need answered.


Just A Little Recap

Thank you again for your upcoming application and we look forward to gaming with you soon. Don't forget to check back for your recruitment status frequently and join us in Team Speak when you can. If you have any questions please feel free to ask any member of =ADK= as most questions can be answered pretty simply. If your question requires special attention a admin will be directed to you. Again, thanks for your interest in joining the ADK community!
