    New! - Will now notify players on profile when they can re-apply if app is closed.

    I've noticed that quite a few people are forgetting when their last app was closed. And it makes it harder if, after a week of app being closed, it gets recycled. So, I will be implementing a handy little trick: Notifying applicants on their profile page when they can re-apply. Since profile posts do not get cleaned up, it's easier for applicants to be able to remember when they can re-apply.

    If you think this is a good system and wish to be reminded for other things, please let me know in the comments.

    Forum Reminders
    Reporting Players/Staff - Please use the format before making a report

    We have formats for certain things for a reason. Reporting Players/Staff is a main section that needs format for our staff to take action. The main issue that I see players miss is naming the server it's on and screenshot proof. If you are unable to get screenshot proof, either get your own chat log or specify the time + server it's on, and we can check commands/chat logs. However, if it's something seen in-game, screenshots would be best.

    30 day Rule for Applications - A month must take place between applications no matter what
    Just wanted to remind everyone regarding our 30 day rule. This rule is in regards to any current app, closed app or more than one app. You cannot have more than one app open at a time (even if one position is not available atm). Also, if you either get denied or accepted into a position, you must wait minimum 30-days before applying for either same position or another position. It gives staff time to monitor any behavior, whether on team or in-game, to determine if anything was changed. If you have any questions regarding this rule, please PM me on forums and I will clarify it.


    Forum Work/Advice
    Advice for Success #2 (for Apps) - Be a team player, not a team leader

    Many players, when they apply for a position, automatically think that they can achieve the top position or get perks immediately (such as admin for staff or creative for builder) and run everything. When applying for a position, we look for team players, not team leaders or winners. You need to be able to work with a team, have conflicting viewpoints, and understand that not everything goes your way. You also need to realize that you won't get perks immediately. It will take time, patience and dedication in order to get any perks related to your position.

    Sorry for late reply. Your app was closed on Aug 15th pending good staff relations and being able to use both slack + ts.

    Slack is vital for ALL our positions, as it is the central hub for communication.
