    How can applicants be so sure that they will get paid? Are there others we can talk to - to provide proof?

    Secondly, do you have moderating scheduled, to make sure people sleep and don't just stay online because they are getting paid?

    Never use comic sans in an application EVER!


    That is applicable for writing resumes, but here - anything goes.
    While personally, I don't think that the font "comic sans" looks good for anything, others may think differently.

    AfterCraft Network is a post apocalyptic themed server. We feature many different
    gamemodes, each with builds, plugins and special features.
    We strive to create a vision of creativity and uniqueness - one the likes
    of many minecrafters have never seen before.
    We are here to provide epic experiences, great challenges and most of all
    the most professional staff team at your service.

    We have a custom payment system for our staff team. Once hired, you will be put on a staff team schedule. This schedule is set up for you and your team to fit around your personal daily lives. The amount of hours you work in a day on the server will accumulate to points. These points can be turned in for money [Yes, real cash] or can be put into the server on a secondary account. (Say you want a donator rank, you can cash in your points to purchase one for an alternate account to play on the server)
    Staff members are paid per hour, points are received at the end of the week. Staff members will only work 4 hours daily, to ensure they don't overwork themselves and so they can switch off with another team to take a break for a little bit. All staff members are treated equally, so nobody is paid more over another staff member, nobody feels undertitled or overtitled.

    posted a message on How to: Minecraft - Server action plan

    -=How to: Minecraft=-

    A server starter guide


    So you have just created your new server and feel you are ready to open it up to the public. But are you truly ready? Have you gone over a checklist with yourself/other staff first off?

    If you feel you are ready and within the week or month no players are coming into the server or just join to ask for staff and leave when they don’t get the rank - you have a problem.


    In this guide, I will teach you how to start up a high quality minecraft server, how to keep players interested and how to manage and properly select a good staff team. You will also receive pointers, a beginners checklist and my email for further consultation over this guide.



    ****


    Am I ready?


    Most of the time, when you feel “ready”, you actually aren’t. You don’t know what to expect, you’re experiencing major bugs, chunk errors, missing or incomplete builds, little to no staff team and no server plan. You may or may not have a voting system set up or even a website as of yet. This checklist below will help accommodate to your needs as a server owner before you decide to open to the public.

    **Note** Keep your server on whitelist until it is completely finished - you don’t want griefers coming in before you fix your perms.


    1. Have I built everything completely? No missing shop/pvp arena/games/ect
    2. Have I checked out the server to see if permissions run properly?
    3. Have I installed the proper plugins/desired plugins and ran them through twice to make sure they are working?
    4. Have I made sure to hire a trustworthy staff team?
    5. Have I set up my website?
    6. Have I fixed any recurring errors on the server?
    7. Have I triple checked to make sure everything is in order and ready for the release date?
    8. Have I advertised thoroughly to make sure I have players come online for the launch date?

    Keeping players


    You’ve done all you can to create your idea of an awesome server, but is it really that good to keep players actively interested? Take the time to consider what has been done over and over and what kind of things seem to be generic in minecraft servers. For instance, if you wanted to create a Faction server, you could add an MMO or FPS setting to it. Players could roleplay while still enjoying the aspect of playing Factions.

    Or you could look all all the different plugins that have been made and decide for yourself what you think will make your server stand out from all the others.


    Examples for keeping players:


    • Cool plugins
    • Custom builds
    • A great staff/player relationship
    • Contests
    • Drop parties

    If you have ideas of your own, you could totally add them in, anything to keep your server going.




    ***


    Selecting a staff team


    Deciding on who makes a better staff member is harder than it seems. You’ve got to keep in check who is there to actually HELP out the server, who is there for the rank and who might abuse their staff powers. When looking for appropriate people to work on the server, you need to create a staff plan. This plan entitles what you look for in staff and what you’d like them to follow by. When creating said plan, remember main things that you want different staff to memorize and practice.






    Example of a staff plan:


    Head Administrators


    Have power over staff below him or her

    Work with problems regarding buycraft, complaints, server related issues

    Report to Owners if necessary

    Take care of the server as second representative.


    Administrators


    File all reports given by developers/mods/helpers

    When there’s a problem they cannot fix, they’d go to their Head-Admin

    Work on the server as required and keep staff below him or her in line

    Work on the website if needed


    Head-Moderator


    Keeps moderators and Helpers in check

    Helps create contests

    Hosts drop parties

    Is a part of the community

    Makes sure players are happy

    Reports to Admin if needed


    Moderator


    Watches over the Helper, makes sure he or she does their job

    Helps host Drop parties

    Moderates the chat as needed

    Helps players out as needed

    Creates a warm community - great player/staff relationship

    Reports to Head-Moderator as needed


    Helper

    • Moderates chat
    • Is the voice of the players
    • Helps players new and old
    • Greets players and directs them to the rules and their kit
    • Creates a great community for players to enjoy
    • Reports to Moderator as needed.

    Things you want to remember to tell your staff:


    • Go by the Law of F - Be Firm, Fair and Friendly
    • Don’t automatically go off of what a player says. Confirm.
    • Take screenshots or videos. Proof is always needed.
    • Players are players. Staff are staff. You are there to make sure your server runs smoothly, don’t get caught playing favorites.
    • When recruiting a staff team, be sure to have your applicants go into detail. Have them list previous servers and do a small background check to make sure they are indeed who they say they are. Make sure to interview them to go over what you’ve accepted as their application and see if they’d truly like to become staff on your team.

    posted a message on HUGE UPCOMING SERVER <> WE NEED BUILDERS <><> DEVELOPERS <><> AND STAFF

    Application for a moderator


    IGN: VASHTAXNERADA
    Age: 20 | Mature
    Gender: Female
    Location: Canada
    Timezone: PST

    Skype: Kennii-xhan
    Language(s): English (Fluent) Russian (poorly) French (poorly) German (can understand a little)

    » Have you ever been banned on a server?: Yes, twice. One was just recently, as the owner didn't believe I was one: female and two: twenty years of age. I called him out on it and it resulted in him telling me to prove it by donating $50 to the server. Well I'm sorry, but I don't just randomly donate $50 for "proof". As an adult, that's a poor way to show proof, it's just wasting money on a useless act of self pride.
    The second time was for building in gamemode and someone decided to come and raid me. As a result of not getting out of gamemode quickly enough, I got banned.

    » What can you bring to the server?: A positive attitude, a welcoming demeanor to new and old players, a helping hand when people need it, organization skills, good teamwork skills, a minimum of 10 hours spent on the server daily (or have a schedule set for times to moderate), excellent judgement, a great helping hand with things get out of control, daily reports with accompanying screenshots and essentially creating a warm community that bonds the staff team to the players.

    » Past experiences: Some of my past experiences as a moderator have not been with minecraft. For that, I am proud to have been apart of so many great teams across many different platforms. My most recent and past experience as a moderator was with a game called "League of Angels". It's a game that plays like Wartune with superb graphics, wonderful animation and a lovely soundtrack. The player base is up to 1 million as of last year - so I was super excited to be apart of such an amazing staff team at the time. Daily, we'd log on to our set moderating schedules and be there when players needed us to call upon. We'd check the forums, answer tickets, make sure the game is running smoothly with no bugs or hackers in sight. If there was a problem, we'd resolve it. If we couldn't resolve it, we'd bring in a Gamemaster. Any mishaps would be taken with a screenshot and a written report. All of our work was logged and pay by in game cash and ranks were given out.

    I've worked as a moderator for a total of 5 games. 4 are owned and published by R2Games, one is published with ASR-Games. (With ASR-Games, I was a Gamemaster. I organized and hosted events, moderated the forums, banned, muted, kicked players from games, analyzed server data, worked with paypal problems, answered tickets, recruited players for the staff team, sorted, read and stamped ban appeals, created maps, worked on animations for new weapons, worked on soundtracks for new weapons, created an entirely new HUD and enjoyed working there for an entire year)

    My experience with minecraft servers are around the same. I've worked on/for 26 servers with various positions. For minecraft, I much prefered building until someone gave me an opportunity to become a moderator on their server. I took it - and I'm so glad I did. With the previous experience I had, I was able to help the server out alot on its strain of a poor staff/player relationship. I was on nearly every day to create a better atmosphere for players and staff alike, worked extra hard to maintain the server status, please players, answer tickets, answer questions in the game and the forum. Sadly, the server went down after 5 months due to the owner giving up himself. Soon after that, all the players and staff left.

    » How long have you played Minecraft?: 2.2 years now. My, has it been that long already?

    » What makes YOU stick out from the rest: I'm a slightly older player that strives to be a better person for whatever game I'm playing in. I'm friendly and I have a good "customer service" front around me, always eager to help others and create amazing experiences for people. I've had many, many experiences in the past in this position, I'm more than willing to step up my game and truly benefit a server on the communities behalf. What makes me stick out the most? Just being myself.

    » About the user: Welp. Now that I no longer work with R2Games, I spend my time building for new, small servers that are just starting up. I also create "server goals and plans" since alot of people make servers on a whim and don't consider what plugins they might need, what to look for in potential staff member, how to prevent a server from getting griefed and so on.
    I currently work for an indie game company called "BeDaGames". They make parody games such as "FazeBear Nightmare" - from Five nights at Freddy's and their recent one "MLG 3 Swag" - which was changed to "Police Brutality" I work as a simple level designer and voice actor.
    When I'm not working on unity models, I'm playing with my gaming clan: DeadlyGaming, experimenting with cooking, enjoying life with family and friends or practicing with my airsoft team Thunderbird.

    posted a message on How to make your application look professional

    I, myself - like other people - am tired of seeing poorly written staff applications on here. Alot of your words are squished together in a sentence like so:


    Name:xxxApplying for:xxxAge:xx


    or

    Name: xxxx

    Applying for: xxxxx

    Age: xx

    Why should you be picked:xxxxxxxxx

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


    They look super sloppy, not enough is written down and most of the time - the experience isn't there. Your grammar is off, spelling mistakes and the overall presentation isn't satisfying.

    That is why I am here for you today - to teach you how to write a proper application, make it look nice on paper and different ways to convince the employer why she or he should hire you!


    Key points


    Using Bold


    If I was looking to hire you, I'd probably write down a small of an application example and expect you to fill it out in full, enough so I was able to read it. Below I will post an example of what an employer might write:



    IGN:

    Name:

    Age:

    Timezone:

    Hours of availability:

    Experience:

    Have you ever been banned?:


    Just because the employer hasn't made the application in bold font, doesn't mean you don't have to either. He or she didn't space it either, but it leaves room for you to space it how you want to in your application. Now if you went to fill out that application without bold it would look something like this:



    IGN: Winterkaust

    Name: Vanessa

    Age: 20

    Timezone: PST

    Hours of availability: 9-5 everyday.

    Experience: I've been apart of several different servers, actively monitoring them and building.

    Have you ever been banned?: Yes, got banned for being "old"


    Notice how the application looks quite bland from this perspective. Now look at it again after it's been edited and put in bold.



    IGN: Winterkaust

    Name: Vanessa

    Age: 20

    Timezone: PST

    Hours of availability: 9-5 everyday.

    Experience: I've been apart of several different servers, actively monitoring them and building.

    Have you ever been banned?: Yes, got banned for being "old"


    By utilizing the "boldness" in the forums here, it instantly pops out your application, setting it aside from other applicants.


    Spaces


    Spacing plays a big part in an application. If you tend to not spam your space bar often - I'm officially requesting it! Below is an example of what spaces can do to a finished application:



    IGN: Winterkaust


    Name: Vanessa


    Age: 20


    Timezone: PST


    Hours of availability: 9-5 everyday.


    Experience: I've been apart of several different servers, actively monitoring them and building.


    Have you ever been banned?: Yes, got banned for being "old"


    Looking at this application is already better on my eyes. The spaces are defined and it heightens your application look by 10%. However, because the application looks so empty, so do the spaces. In this next segment, I want to teach you how to write entire paragraphs.


    Writing full bodied answers


    In many applications that I read, alot of people use one sentence to answer the questions asked. I mean, one word sentences are okay when you're answering about your name or age - but about your experience? That's a no go and instant denial of application by anyone.

    So, you don't have alot of experience when it comes to applying for the job you want? Write more. Write your heart out - show who you're writing to you really WANT that job and you will work exceptionally hard to get it. Don't go using CAPS for the entire application, that looks seriously unprofessional. Below is a small of an example of using persuasion to your advantage:



    IGN:

    Winterkaust


    Name:

    Vanessa


    Age:

    20


    Timezone:

    PST


    Hours of availability:

    9-5 everyday, can contribute as many hours as possible.


    Experience:

    I've been working on and off with several different people and servers. Some of the servers (which display past projects and builds) still exist today.

    The following servers I've worked on:

    • DeadlyCraft
    • FeverClan
    • WoodyCraft
    • DynamicCraft
    • ForeverPvP
    • DragonCraft
    • CreationNZ
    • ExCraft

    [Insert build links here if applying for Building staff]


    Have you ever been banned?:

    Yes, got banned for being "old" The server owner and staff were of a young age and felt I could be too much of an influence on their young, developing minds.


    Somehow, with those bullet points there, the application looks already; much cleaner than before. It helps when you're listing off experience, if you have alot of it and servers or names of people you know to prove it, to put it down in bullet point or numerals. It also lengthens your application to give it a more "full bodied" look in contrast to if you hadn't put them in.


    Smilies and extra bits


    Using smilies is an immediate no-go. Say you were writing an application for a real world job - you wouldn't be doodling all over your paper to "spruce it up" now, would you? Extra little bits like hearts and any other text doodles can be used... but in moderation. Like you wanted to change the bullet points into stars, that can be done.

    Using color can also help make your application stand out instantly against other applications, just know not to use certain colors that strain the eyes. Stuff like bright yellow or bright pink. You want your application to be seen - but not seen to the point where the reviewer needs sunglasses to see your post.
