While there is no set method of obtaining this rank, it is recommended that those who wish to become a developer on EMC apply to be a staff member for the possibility of being accepted. Entry level developers have a blue-colored username and have similar powers to Moderators, while developers of higher ranks (Senior Staff or Administrator) maintain a color relevant to their rank.
