    Join Staff - SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program

    June 2015
    The SWGEmu





    Greetings SWGEmu Community!

    As a volunteer project, SWGEmu is constantly looking for new community members to step up and assist and support the community. If you are interested in taking on the responsibility of an SWGEmu Staff member to further our goals, we encourage you to take the time to apply for our SWGEmu
    EC/CSR/Support training program.

    The SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program is designed to introduce community members to different aspects of the duties and responsibilities of the SWGEmu Staff, while giving them a chance to develop a close relationship and eventually join the SWGEmu Staff team.


    The following are the minimal requirements to be accepted into to this program:
    • Professionalism
    • Excellent work ethic
    • Positive attitude
    • Ability to work and learn in a team environment
    • Sufficient free time
    • Knowledge of the SWGEmu Project is required


    Program Details
    1. Apply to the SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program by submitting an application (see below).
    2. After reviewing the application, an interview may be offered to accept or decline the volunteer.
    3. Once accepted for SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training program, the volunteer will be mentored by a member of the SWGEmu Staff for a period of 2 months.
    4. During these 2 months, the intern will assist in IRC, on forums and on Live support.
    5. After the SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support training period has ended, an evaluation will be completed by the SWGEmu Staff to determine if the SWGEmu EC/CSR/Support trainee has met all duties and expectations expected of them.
    6. The trainee may then remain as a support assistant or apply for an available position in the SWGEmu Staff.
    7. If accepted, an apprenticeship period of 4-8 weeks will begin and the apprenticeship will work closely with the staff member of the department they applied for.
    8. At the end of the apprenticeship, another evaluation will be completed to determine if the intern would be a good fit for the chosen SWGEmu Staff department.
    9. If accepted, the apprentice will be offered the opportunity to join the SWGEmu Staff as a full-time member.
    10. The new SWGEmu Staff member will perform their department's duties as well as continue assisting with Support.
    Upon completion of the internship period, the following positions may be applied to for apprenticeship:
    • Support Staff (Customer Support Representative)
    • Event Coordinator
    • Community Relations (Forum Moderator)
    We are very excited to be offering this program to our community. It is our hope that it will bring forward community members that want to help SWGEmu succeed and provide our Community with the best experience possible.

    SWGEmu Timeline

    May, 2012
    The SWGEmu Team




    Since the EoL and Pre-Alpha Basilisk launch was announced there has been a lot of rumors flying around about what is going to happen and when. To avoid any further confusion and to set communities mind at ease we are releasing this timetable.

    • May 14th - Liberator offline and wiped. TC: Nova offline. Basilisk launched for stress testing.
    • May 21st - TC: Nova online and opened to public testing again.
    • June 11th - Basilisk testing phase complete. Basilisk wiped and becomes a test/play server. Basilisk will persist through Alpha and Beta development phase.
    • Sometime in far future - Basilisk wiped. Release developmental milestone reached. SunCrusher launched without threat of wipe, ever.

    Since this is a development project and unexpected things can happen, DB wipes are always a possibility. Of course we will try to avoid this at any cost and when possible just wipe a single type of item,
    if required at all.


    Alpha, Beta, and Release are phases of development, and should not be confused for part of the galaxy (server) name. They simply refer to what state the software is in that runs the server.

    • Basilisk test/play server - Stable SWGEmu server that will exist through our Alpha and Beta development phase (not to be confused with complete, permanent play servers). Used for any and all kind of testing on a larger scale than our Nova test server can provide. Primarily but not exclusively used for stress testing.
    • Nova Test Center (TC: Nova) - Unstable SWGEmu test server where all the new code, bug fixes, patches etc are being tested before they are migrated to Basilisk. Prone to random crashes, deadlocks and unannounced database wipes. Can not and should in no way be confused with a play server of any kind, but is still a "recommended" server on galaxy selection and/or character creation. (If you want the new stuff, that's where you are likely to find it)
    • Alpha - The alpha software development phase is the stage where all features are in the process of being implemented. When it begins, there may be many missing features, but by its end, all major features should be implemented.
    • Beta - The beta software development phase is marked by the implementation of all major features. During this phase, the primary focus of software development is to fix any and all bugs, as well as implement content that expands upon the major features from Alpha.
    • Release - The release software development phase is when a software is thought to be good enough for deployment. This means that the software will be packaged and ready for use by the general public to fuel their own servers, and it will be deemed stable and complete.


    PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a volunteer project, some delays or minor changes on the timetable are still possible.
