Programmers: Now Hiring Debuggers!Posted by Spiora on January 18, 2017 - 6:15 am
Are you technically-minded and frustrated by the bugs that seem to be breeding amongst Hex's wiring? Would you like to help?

Cause it's pretty cool.

What You Get:
- A base salary of 10,000 Gs per month
- An additional 5,000 Gs - 10,000 Gs per bug fixed, which can be paid in galleons or items (your choice!)

Do YOU like to chat with characters?Posted by Ninja Kitten on January 10, 2017 - 10:30 pm
We find that we would like to expand a bit more, now that we've seen how much our current group can do. Please note that we are to remain anonymous when using a character- we want everyone to be able to let loose and not be afraid of being flamed or trolled for their portrayals. We ask that y'all continue to respect their privacy in regards to that.
Who wants to help us bring excitement to their fellow users? Come and play with us!
This message has been brought to you by NK, Vicki, Sara, and Lua. Though, we are not responsible for anything that the canon accounts break. :look:
