Zelda Dungeon has gone through several different staff members in the past.

for the site. We are only looking for the best here at Zelda Dungeon.

Requirements/Responsibilities
- Each position has its own direct requirements which are listed in their job description.
- For any content position, website experience is highly recommended.
- Time! You must be able to devote several hours a week for work on site content. If it is too low on your list of priorities, you will inevitably lose interest and we will lose a staff member, which we always want to avoid.
- Proper grammar and spelling are necessary for anyone applying to write content with text.
- A microphone is not required, but highly recommended, as voice staff chats occur frequently.
