- Strong writing and communication skills
- Knowledge and understanding of "game community" including fan sites, IRC, message boards, etc.
- Firm grasp of web art creation and management tools

- Must already live in Dallas or surrounding areas (or be willing to relocate at your own expense)
If that's you, email a resume, examples of previous/current work, and any references to email@example.com
It's also probably not a good idea to make jokes about id's Media Artist, Patrick Duffy. Though to be fair, the guy does
live in Dallas...
