Hey everyone, This is an informative post about the Hamr. For anyone who is looking for more information or are interested in joining Hamr you have come to the right place.
This post focuses on the group applications itself, as well as admission requirements. We have included a list of requirements we usually review each entry by, and the most common mistakes people make when creating their entry.
This post is split into the following topics:
- The Group
- Sending an Application
- Review of an Application
- The Voting Process
DISCLAIMER: In this post we refer to “moderator” and “administrator” as the GROUP RANKS. This should NOT be confused with Roblox staff, forum moderators and so on. The group moderators and administrators has no influence on official Roblox moderation.
Hamr is a international collective of passionate developers from the Roblox community. Our focus is to provide a place to find quality work, both showcases and games. The group was started back in 15th September 2019.
The group can be found here .
Anyone can send an application to the group, but we advise that you thoroughly go over your creation before you do so. Applications that either look fake or that is nowhere near the quality required by the group might taken in to no consideration leading to rejection. Our goal is to try to respond with constructive feedback to all serious applications.
When you are going to send an application, it is best to either send it directly to Hamr on Twitter or to one of our moderators (see the group).
An application should contain link(s) to your best creations. If your creation is a Model, you should upload it to a place.
Make sure the place settings allow anyone to enter (Access: Everyone).
Each application submitted to the group is initially reviewed by one of our moderators.
As anywhere, each member has their different set of personal requirements they judge an entry by. These requirements can (and will) vary between our members, but the general criterias most judge by are (but not limited to) the following:
It is worth noting that we are not only looking for super-detailed builds. Many times entries are turned down because they put detail in the wrong places even though the entire build is detailed. Our criteria is that each builder should be able to determine where to apply detail and where to leave it out. We are also looking for something unique from the builder, something we haven’t seen before.
Some common mistakes people make when applying for the group:
By building a common theme for your entry you might lose points on originality, which may harm your chances of getting accepted into the group. Some common themes that have been (over-)used throughout the years:
- Zombie apocalypse
- Generic houses
- Sphere terrain
You are free to build what you want, but we advise you to carefully think through your plan before you build any of these common themes.
Admission to the Hamr is granted when a vote has been held for an entry, and the vote has passed in favor of the entry. Every member of the group are able to vote in every vote, and each member has one vote (either “yes” or “no”, with a reasoning for their vote).
A vote lasts for 5 days, and the deciding factor is common majority in favor of “no”. That means if there are more than 60% yes, the vote goes through. If there result is 60/40, the vote does not go through.
There has to be at least five votes for a vote to pass. The vote will be extended or recast if there are insufficient votes. If the vote still has not reached the required amount of votes, an administrator may decide whether the vote shall pass or not, for example in a case the group has reached a point where there are not enough active members for a vote to be held.
We are always looking for more, skilled individuals. If you are interested in applying for Hamr, it would be in your interest to read Admissions Guide 2019 , which can serve as a neat checklist for you. It has some nice tips and tricks for when you apply to the group.
