Past Experience: I've personally oversaw two servers in the past. The first was a local server my brother and I set up on our home computer just to play together. Over time, we developed the server and plugins, and after solving the problem of port forwarding, played it with a couple of friends. The experience of starting a server with my brother helped with the latter experience, of running my own server under minecraft hosting companies and transferring to a VPS. Over the span of two years I managed a fairly successful server, having made over $150 without asking users to donate.
At the time I shut down the server, it was a sad day for my players, but they understood the trouble I was going through, with starting college and working full time. But in the end, the servers' community came away with what a great experience with all had, and I will always remember the time we spent together. While working on and developing my own servers was always a time user, I tried to find time to also help others on there new servers. I oversaw development of plugins on numerous servers, being an active member in the server administration section on the minecraft forum, and was often times a 'behind-the-scenes' staff member, not usually playing the server itself but helping the server developers overcome problems that they came across. In total, the vast majority of my past experience stemmed from my own two servers that I developed, and the countless other server I've helped personally.
What You Can Offer the Server?: While I do understand that a huge factor you may be looking for in your staff members is time on the server, and how often they play, I instead will offer you another factor: time efficiency, professionalism, and past experience that will rival any applicant. I've worked on, helped, and oversaw countless servers, often times in short spans of time during class breaks and frantic texts. I can be contacted very easily through the day, and can typically work through any problem you may come across, even if I'm not by a computer. For me, I believe responding back in order to help is a attribute of a professional staff member, which is what I hope to offer your server. Not only am I a full-time college student, but I also participate in the work field, and have an active lifestyle outside of my computer. I guarantee that you would appreciate what I bring to the server, and personally hope I can make playing on your server the experience that any Minecraft user would enjoy.
Why Should we Choose you Over Others?: I don't believe any other users applying for staff have walked around the beach saying 'you mirin bro'
