Experience: I've been in admin positions since classic, co-owning two servers and being an Operator in several others. In SMP I've been Admin and Head Admin once each, being a Head Admin in the now deactivated Mages of the Artifex, a factions and magic based PVP server, I've been a Mod and trial mod several other times as well. I've resigned from my positions or the servers have gone down, but I have never been discharged from a staff position. My overall Minecraft experience racks up to over 6 years.
Why you would like to be staff: Being staff represents a positions that's incredibly close to the community of players, it's where you can become friends with other staff and the players who frequent it. Despite the work and responsibility it leads you to meet interesting people and participate in a cool community. Something to occupy my time on is always nice too
