You will also moderate our website and the chats on our Discord server and in-game, making sure that players follow the rules.

    Therefor you need be strong at communicating, multitasking, have knowledge of the server, point out the rules and guidelines, remain calm in challenging situations and adapt quickly to new situations.
    As a staff member you must be aware of your tasks and role before applying, we advise you to read carefully through this thread. You also need to think about what your strengths are and how you can insert this in your role as a staff member.

However we advice to look to your application and listen to the advice the staff member may have given you. This is why we would recommend to re-evaluate your application and look at what improvements you can make.

    If you decide to re-apply keep in mind that it can be beneficial to be self-aware of your skills. Look at your own skills and find a way to maybe apply them as a staff member, you can tell us this in your new application. You are free to reapply with your latest application, this may end in a similar decision. We would recommend to update your application and keep in mind the feedback you may have received.
    It is up to you what you want to share in your application. We are not forcing players to give up any personal information that you are not comfortable sharing with us. The meaning of personal information in this context would mean for example: ‘’I have been staff on X server’’, ‘’I go to school at X’’, ‘’I live in a city named X’’. However we may need information like your real name or contact information.

    It is good to remember that any information that you share in your application needs to be relevant to the application. This information needs to explain to us why you should be a staff member, give examples and show us that you meet the requirements.
    Your overall reputation will affect the outcome of your application. You are applying to become a staff member and we are looking for certain characteristics that would fit a member of our team. If you have a recent (30 days or less) history of breaking rules, receiving a ban or being muted, your application will not be considered until you meet the needed requirements.
