Wowhead is Looking for Volunteers
2011/06/13 at 11:37 AM
: We have, more or less, chosen our new recruits. Demand for localizers will always be present, but the other positions are filled. Exceptional applicants will always be considered, but unless you are one, chances are that we won't have a spot for you.
Thanks to all who applied!
We have a very talented volunteer team at Wowhead and they do a lot behind the scenes such as editing database articles, moderating our forums, and even blogging time to time. However, we're always looking for new blood so we've decided to advertise the positions and seek out some volunteers!
So here's the deal: we're currently looking for all positions, from talented bloggers to forum overlords to localization folk. That said, we are especially looking for someone to help us with
the Wowhead client
, both in testing and tinkering. If you have any previous experience with add-ons or have understanding of LUA, we'd love to talk to you about our client--it could use some serious love. Really serious love, even.
To apply, all you have to do is email
explaining your interest, talents, and availability after reading [url=
Goodbye "Wowhead," Hello "Rifthead"

Rifts are forming—political rifts amongst leaders and physical rifts as Deathwing tears our world apart. Rifts are everywhere in Azeroth.
Thus, officially as of today, we've rebranded our esteemed website to incorporate that very memorable and menacing word into our new site title. No longer are we Wowhead. Today we become "Rifthead"; a website where we strive to bring the community the latest upd
