    We need one person who checks daily (at least) what new files are released that fit into the Demos, Patches, Gaming Videos, Utilities profile of your downloads section and adds them with proper descriptions etc.

    Highspeed internet connection is not needed, but would be nice.

    You need to be reliable and able to work with minimal supervision.

    I don't know yet how much we should pay for that, anybody have suggestions on how much?
    1 hour per day @ 30 days @ 12$ = 360 USD per month. Fair? Too much? Too little?

    Please apply here.


    job goes to linkin - linkin quit for personal reasons
    job goes to technicks

    Forget the $$, that sounds like a 'fun' job. I love games, news on new games, videos, demos, and extras....but I fear I wouldn't have enough time...

    Think hellas might be just what you lookin for (great job with all the news posts btw)


    Oh and keep up the excellent work

    I'm on the TPU for over 8 hours a day, and I could use the extra cash:) I'm laying down a brick porch porch(On break), but I will be done in a few hours when it starts to get hot outside.

    you dont need to have a blazing fast conneciton because you can do server to server transfers. a stable conneciton that doesnt drop is required though.

    time zone, location does not matter

    age matters only so much that you have to be reliable and not act like a little kid :)

    you need to find stuff yourself but it's usually the same sites that have to be monitored

    Well... stable connection, easy :) I can get the old ethernet cable out, stop it dropping... and W1z, that pay rate seems a little high...

    Wiz rules thats good pay atleast for my area and + it benefits tpu.

    I had an idea of splitting the time (week for week) between 2 people so no ones gets overburdened/tired of it, but I think you'll find someone for the "job".

    oh and thats more than fair pay, so they better do a good job!

    I'm about to quit work and go back to college, so I would have more time to work on things like that since I won't be working and going to class at the same time this semester.

    Yeah, you'd do it for $10... I'd do it for 5... though that translates to only £2.50 local currency.

    Ready, Able, Willing...

    I spend most the day browsing around on the internet anyways. Work from home so its not an issue. Soon I am also going to have a dedicated line anyways, so "no" downtime.

    Also have multiple systems *probably like most here*, but thats always good in the case a machine goes down.
