Most of you have noticed that there has been a recent cleanup of staff members. This was done to make room for some new staff members in the very near future.
First off, I would like to thank all of the current and former staff members for all of their hard work on the server. This server would not exist without hard working staff members and they do a great job keeping the server under control and helping out players. I really can't thank them enough.
There does come a time when staff members need to be moved back to their normal non-staff rank, though. This is usually due to them not having enough time to devote to the server. Being a staff member is a hard job and it really takes a lot of dedication in order to be successful. I understand that people can't spend 8 hours a day on a minecraft server, but I also understand that there is a ton of players who are extremely active and would love to get their chance at a staff position.
The main reason for this post is to get people that would like to become a staff member to send an application for an open position. Not everyone will get accepted, but I'm looking to rank 4 or 5 Moderators in the coming weeks. If you haven't sent a staff application in the last few weeks I encourage you to send one if you are confident you would make a good staff member.
I would like to mention that the staff application process is sometimes a long one. If you do not hear back from me right away please don't get disappointed and feel like you weren't chosen. Also, I will be ranking 1 player at a time and then waiting a few days before another staff ranking. This will allow the new staff member to get to know all the commands and also ensure the older staff are not overwhelmed helping a bunch of brand new staff members. For that reason I ask that you also not get disappointed if someone is ranked and you felt you were more deserving. Who knows, maybe you will be the next one to get ranked. Nothing gets under my skin more than seeing players rage quit and complain in chat when they weren't picked for staff position or someone they don't care for is ranked.
Good luck to everyone who is interested. I also encourage everyone to read this post before they apply.
