Staff Application Forms- A tip from ProGaming

Post by ProGaming » Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:29 pm

This is a detailed tutorial on how to make a Mod Application. Keep in mind that each servers criteria isn't always the same, so make sure you don't just copy this format.

1st things first, always remember, that this:

What position do you want? I think I want mod or admin
Age? 10 but I'm really mature 4 my age
Maturity level: 999999999/10
Why do you want to be staff? because i want to have commands and I pwomise that i will be faire.
If someone curses towards you, what would you do? mi mom always says dat cursing is bad, so i ban them and kill dem.

quite frankly, is crap.

What I like, and a lot of others do too, is for a mod app to be clear and neat. I would advise making it more appealing by making it easier to differentiate the question from the answer, for example:

Why do you want to be staff?

I would like to become a staff member because I love helping people and making them enjoy their Minecraft experience, as staff of my first few servers I played on were helping and supportive towards me, I think that's why I am able to be playing today.

For the record, I see a lot of people trying to "show off" their "English skills" by doing this

I Think That I Should Become A Admin Because I Know How To Do It And I Have Done It Before

You guys have to remember, " There isn't some rule when writing that if you don't capitalize a word it doesn't 'count' as a word" -The Oatmeal

Also, if someone asks for your age and maturity level. Don't say you're only 12 but you're super mature, it just makes you sound like a brat that thinks he/she is advanced. Be modest and let them decide how mature you are by the way you act. Also, don't say 12 and a half or give your birthday. If your 12, you're 12, if your 17, you're 17.

Also, adding extra criteria may be more laboring, but the prize might be worth it. Just simple stuff like your background and some personal info (Again, don't brag and overstate, just tell a little more about you.)

Remember that if they ask for your previous admin info, they probably don't want to hear "I was admin on 10 of my friends 4 slot hamachi server's." Personally, if its hamachi, I would prefer you just put yes, if its a 10 slot and over PUBLIC server then that's when you can give the number, position and name of the server.

Above all, (a) don't be a dick on your app by not saying your better then someone else's app or doing anything stupid against other people/staff. That will just start a huge flame war significantly risking your chances of being staff. and (b) Use common sense. If you lack that, you don't stand a chance. and (c), be honest. Maybe you'll get away with it for the first few days if you are accepted, but when they find out, it won't end well.

Here's a example of my Ideal app:

What position are you aiming for?
Preferably Moderator, though, I would take a lower ranked position if offered. (This is not my Real Info I'm just giving an Example. And im 17 not 15)

Age?
15

Maturity Level
6.5/10: I love the common jokes, I have fun with what I do, I curse, and do a lot of stupid things, though I am serious when the matter requires me to do so.

Why should we except you?
I love the minecraft community, even though it is harsh at times and I am harsh at it sometimes, but I still enjoy helping it. I like building creations for the good of the community and for my own enjoyment. I don't rage, if I were to leave, I would say my goodbyes and demote myself, not blow the server up first, and I see myself as a good member of your team.

Previous experience?
I have been staff on a few of my friends server and I had a admin position on NameYourServerHereCraft, a 30 slot public server hosted by CreeperHost in the UK. It was successful and had alot of players per day, but I didn't like the way the owners were treating the problems (letting the the staff members do all the work and then having them take all the credit) and I didn't like the fact that the chose the worst staff members possible, almost of all of them corrupt. I was also a Mod on ExampleCraft, a small 15 slot which usually had 9 users on avg. and 1-2 staff on at one time. It was a fun community but was shut down do to lake of time and lack of good staff (most of them were leaving because they wanted to become staff on a bigger server and they couldn't picture the server growing)

Any additional info?
I live in a small town in NameSomeState, USA. I have been playing since late alpha and have been going multiplayer servers in early-mid beta.

Click on "StrongCraft.org" and then look at "Links" to the right.

How many hours a week are you able to put into StrongCraft?
I'm just going to go ahead and put my full detailed schedule here.
I am active from anytime between:
Monday: 1pm-2:pm
Tuesday: 1pm-2:pm
Wednesday: 1pm-2:pm
Thursday: 1pm-2:pm
Friday: 1pm-2:pm
Saturday: 1pm-2:pm
Sunday: 1pm-2:pm
*All times may fluctuate depending on schedule*

What position are you aiming for?
Preferably Moderator, though, I would take a lower ranked position if offered.

Age?
19

Maturity Level
8/10 I like to have fun on the servers but know when to be serious.

Why should we except you?
There are many reasons I'd like to become a staff member here on StrongCraft. Let me organize and list them out for you in Q&A format.

Why would I want to be staff
I personally want to become staff not to hold myself above others, but help the new players that would become a potential active member, or next staff member. Staff set an example for the community, and must be professional and are held at high standards. Whether or not one is a helper, moderator, or part of the administrator team, these positions are all part of the staff team. If one staff member acts out, it'll taint not only the reputation of the staff team, but potentially the community itself too. Ultimately, becoming staff would allow me to further invest in my own experiences and hopefully learn something different.

How do you know I'll stay motivated?
This is a question I always ask myself over and over. I ask myself, "How am I not getting bored"? The answer always comes back to the same answer: Community. A server wouldn't be enjoyable without a community. The players that play on it make me motivated and want to play. I also believe that a staff team is the most enjoyable when friendships are sparked. I personally am always open to friendships and am a very outgoing person. Should anyone approach me, my first instinct is friendliness. I understand that being a staff member is not something to take granted, but a privilege. Every memory I make while on this server will help me with the approaching future. Undeniably, Skyblock does get repetitive over time, but I always explore different ways to spice things up through interacting with fellow players.

Why am I distinctive over any other applicant?
The big question. "Why am I unique? Why should you select me? Why...?" It all comes back to the one answer: Experience
To begin explaining why I am unique over any other applicant here on Strongcraft, let's start with the question, "Do I understand that being a helper is not easy?" I fully understand that being staff is very challenging and may be stressful at times. Since I've had past moderation, I can handle the pressure, and will try to the best of my ability to be professional, which brings me to the next point. "Why would I be a good fit for the server"? I can bring utmost professionalism to the staff team. Of course, I am also human, and will try to the best of my ability to handle problems/disputes professionally, calmly, and quickly. As a bonus to why I would fit in, I've spent a lot of money on Minesaga. (Of course this doesn't mean anything hence why I said it's a bonus) If this doesn't show dedication to the network, I'm not sure what would. Additionally, due to my humorous personality, I can lighten up the mood if necessary, and have tons of experience to backup my moderation (1 year of moderation and around 9 total years of Minecraft Experience). Additionally, due to the fact that I have experienced many scenarios with loopholes in the rules, I have carefully studied both the server and forum rules. In the rare case that I am uncertain in a scenario, the first thing I would do is search and consult upper staff members. If I am unable to assist anyone, I would contact a higher staff member and let them know to deal with the situation. There's minimal room for mistakes and I'll rarely risk that. I understand that the staff team reflects the image of the network and professionalism is the one thing that keeps a server enjoyable. I am a person that thinks before they act. I would never act rationally or unethically.

Previous experience?
I was staff on Hypixel for a little bit, and I loved it! I was mod for about a year. I have quite a bit of experience due to this server as they have a high player base and a high demand for assistance. These are just notable server that I have staffed on. There are many more smaller servers that I have staffed on but aren't worth noting. Over the past few years, I've learned more and more through new experiences with different servers. Although I have pretty much been in almost all possible situations as a staff member, I would love to see what I can learn with StrongCraft.

Any additional info?
I live in a small town in NY CIty the Bronx, USA. I have been playing Minecraft since alpha. My favorite server here is Surival.
