Helper Application FAQ The staff management team consists of SkylixMC, KwonShiYun, JJrocks2001, iExpo and DieHeldernaar. These are the people who ultimately decide which applicants will become staff members. If you have any questions about the application we will be open to answering them but if you ask for us to check your application or question us about your chances you will be ignored. What is the application process? The application process starts with a player creating an application which shows their interest in becoming a staff member. At this point a manager will go over your application and decide whether you meet the necessary criteria to make a good staff member. This is the stage at which most applicants are denied. If your application is approved then you will be invited into a discord group where you will wait to be given a meeting. If your meeting goes well then you will be presented to the senior team for the admins to give their opinions on and the managers to finally vote upon. How long will it take me to get a response on my application? Generally, an applicant can expect a response with in one week of submitting an application in order to get a response. However, you can expect this time to likely be much shorter. Application processing times may be affected by holidays and other events. If I have been punished before does that effect my chances of becoming a helper? Most chat related offenses will be disregard unless we see a pattern of them. But any serious ban offenses will be taken into consideration when we are deciding whose application to accept and can often be the difference between making it to the interview or not. Am I able to decide whether I do a voice or text interview? In the end the decision to do a chat interview is yours but the staff management do prefer to do voice interviews as it allows us to get to know you better and the interview will generally run smoother. What kind of questions will be asked at the interview? The questions will consist of various questions that we think are necessary to ask you so that we can get an overview of your personality and how we think you will perform on the staff team. Though it is common that we will ask you a few personal questions at the beginning to ease your nerves. How long will it take me to know if I was accepted after my interview? It can vary between directly after and a few days for the player in question to get an answer on the status of their application. Can I reapply if my application was denied for some reason? If your application was denied at some point in the process you may reapply two weeks after the denial unless told otherwise by a manager. Why does my application keep getting denied? If your application gets denied even once then that should be an indication that there is something wrong with the quality of your application and you should try to make it better. If you were denied for not meeting a qualification for being a helper then you will be told specifically what is wrong. Moreover, refer to the next question.
