The SAO Staff Team! 02/21/2017Hello members of SAO-RPG!
I'm sure most of you (if not some) have noticed or heard changes were made to the staff team. If you are applying to staff, you may have noticed that the application process has recently changed. This has all happened because of a reformation of the staff team and the way it operates. The staff now has separate teams for development. These teams are: Floor Creation Team [Floors, Quests/Events, Bosses], Systems & Clarifications Team, and Player Support Team.
"Who is on these teams?" Well the answer to that lies below! Floor Team Systems & Clarifications Team Player Support Team
Minecraft Development Team
* - Denotes Team Lead
We also have a team to work on and develop the current systems but that team will search for its members and is not allowed to be applied to.
Now you may be asking, "Shark, how does one apply to the Staff Team?" And I have but 1 simple answer!
Go read this thread and it may answer all your questions!
If you have any more questions, send me a PM and I will answer your questions about staff. (Only the format of teams and/or the application process)
Community Aid 04/17/2018Hello players of Aincrad! I created two threads in the support ticket section with the interest in having the community involved in the development of Aincrad in floor development, and even systems through your thoughts, concerns, and other forms of communication. There are two separate threads for players to look at and share their opinions. One is specifically for floors which is mainly helping by sharing ideas on what we could add/change/improve as far as our current floors go. Come up with your own floors and share them with us for the chance of seeing that floor one day. Or coming up with a quest and sharing it with us! The other is specifically for systems, which is things like the rules, skill and level system, dungeon and combat systems, etc. I'm hoping people will be willing to share their opinion and thoughts for the purpose of helping to further this site further.
Can't wait to see what you have in mind! Floor Development Suggestion Thread http://www.sao-rpg.com/topic/16352-a-helping-hand/

Profile Â» Username: Markas Â» Real name: Issac Holt Â» Age: 19 Â» Gender: Male Â» Height: 173 cm Â» About: Issac always loved playing games. It was something that kept him occupied. Despite having friends, he never really went out much. He didn't mind, though; he wasn't exactly a social butterfly. In his younger years his family moved around because of his father being in the military. As a result, he found games and the internet to be his "home", seeing as it was a constant no matter where he went. However, this made it hard for him to socialize. It only made it that much more ironic when he found he had a love of MMO games. He didn't really like the grinding, though, but the part he loved most was making it up to the level cap. It was the idea that hard work would eventually pay off in some way, even if there was little endgame content. But then he found out about Sword Art Online. Being the world's first VRMMORPG, he knew he had to get it. So even though he was unable to make it into the beta, he still managed to catch a copy before they were sold out. Â» Virtues: Friendly - Issac is usually a very nice guy, even though he might seem a bit cold at first. He may not talk much, but he puts a lot of stock in friendships, and so friends are very much important to him. While he may not be the one to initiate a conversation first, he's not the kind of person to turn down someone who might be interested in befriending him. Calm - Even though he's spent a lot of time on his own, he's had a lot of time to think and come to terms with many things most people have a hard time dealing with. He usually imagines how situations go before they happen so he could be prepared. This keeps him calm and collected when he needs to be, always trying to be a step ahead of the next person. Stubborn - If it's something he wants, he won't stop until he gets it, no matter what it is or what the cost. This can make him a reliable person, but only if he feels the need to really put work into things. Â» Flaws: Introverted - Because of his past, he tends to stick to himself most of the time. This doesn't mean he's shy, but rather he just enjoys his company more often than the company of others. Unfortunately, when he's just not in the mood for social interaction, he may come off as rude sometimes, or it may seem like he doesn't like you at all. Overly Analytic - Sometimes he'll think too much and begin to assume the worst, which leads him to either not try anything he had planned or he'll end up making a mistake. It also seems to come with stress, among other things. Most notably, he entertains the idea of solipsism, which seems that much more real considering he's trapped in a game. Lazy - Most of the time, he just likes to lay around and enjoy the day without having to put forth much effort into really doing anything. And it's not that he likes to blow things off. It's just that work is bothersome, and why work when you can enjoy Aincrad's nicest seasons?
