    Ahoy once more, Maplers!

    We'll be closing the applications at the end of this month (April 30th)
    We're grateful to see many Maplers interested in joining the community team and cannot wait to bring aboard new members!

    After this section comes to a close we'll be sending out PMs to those that were selected for the next step.
    There will be plenty of opportunities in the future to join the MapleStory community team so do not be discouraged if you weren't selected this time.

    We look forward to continually reviewing each application and the feedback the community has left in the meantime.
    Thank you,
