First of all, I've just woken up, so sorry if any of this is over-offensive. I don't mean to be hurtful, and I don't know how the response will turn out, but this is just a warning.
Off the assumption that you have just joined today (3 posts and the joined date having today's date) the staff of EW will most likely reject your application. Each of the staff members of EW had played an extended amount of time and contributed greatly to the server even before officially becoming GMs, GFX Artists, or DEVs. We love our community and we're cautious to let those which we do not know well into a position in which they may destroy it. (Once again just woke up and can't find another way to phrase this)
We'd still love you to join EW and marvel in how much better we are than other servers :3.
Perhaps it won't be as great of a motivation as an official job (unpaid in either case) but if you are willing to still help out and create some banners or just anything you would really want to do to help, the community will cherish your presence.
For example: LMXC is not only one of the older members which are still here, but he is, on his own accord, trying to create a new custom world.http://eternalwings.forumotion.net/t1488-work-in-progresss
I'm pretty sure we all love him, his work, and how nice and helpful he is.
In retrospect this would have gone much faster if I just gangsta taked it. tl;dr version
Get involved in the community, get known. Make people love you and show that you can contribute. I can almost guarantee you'll have fun even as a normal player.
