RPGFan Terms of Employment
Applicants hired by RPGFan will undergo a 3 month trial period as a Contributing Editor, during which time they will be assigned to write reviews as necessary. Quantity can range from 1 to 3 per month, both console and PC. Reviews must be completed promptly as assigned and be deemed acceptable by the Chief Reviews Editor.
At the end of the 3-month trial period, the Contributing Editor's status will be reevaluated, based on successful achievement of the criteria stated above, at which point RPGFan will either decide to promote the Contributing Editor to Official Editor status, keep the Contributing Editor on in the capacity of Contributing Editor, or end the tenure of said Contributing Editor. RPGFan has the right to end the Contributing Editor's tenure AT ANY TIME without a hearing.
Both Contributing Editor and Official Editor status are on a voluntary basis, there is no monetary compensation. All solicited work submitted to RPGFan chief section editors for the express purpose of being published on RPGFan becomes property of RPGFan with all rights reserved. We ask that any volunteer who wishes to reproduce their work elsewhere to send a written request to the senior staff for our records. RPGFan will not deny any formal request for republication of a volunteer's work with the exception of solicited work for a company (i.e. a reviewable/previewable). Completion of this application process requires acceptance of this clause. As a non-profit publication we expect professionalism both in work and conduct.
RPGFan has no tolerance for those who steal the work of others. All works contributed to the site must be your own; if we discover they came from someone else, you will be fired immediately.
Things that will be considered plagiarism include: passing off another person's review, preview, editorial, artwork, MIDIs, fanfiction, or other content as your own, as well as not properly sourcing news and pictures.
