    Assistant
    In-game prefix (default): Assistant

    How to obtain: Fill out a staff application and become accepted.

    Description: 'Assistant' (previously known as 'TMod') is the entry-level staff rank. Assistants have access to /mute and /kick in-game. With these commands, players who have this rank are expected to moderate the server chat, moderate the server forums, and help players who are in need of assistance. Assistants are players who display an advanced knowledge of server operation, and also who possess sufficient crowd control skills.

    Moderator
    In-game prefix (default): Moderator

    How to obtain: Become promoted from the 'Assistant' rank.

    Description: 'Moderator' is the second rank in our staff ranking ladder. These players have access to many useful tools for effectively moderating the server, such as access to fix griefing, instant teleporting, and many more punishment commands. In the absence of the administration, the Moderator rank is specifically designed in a way where these players should have adequate server and website permissions to manage the network, while also enjoying themselves as an actual player.

    Administrator
    In-game prefix (default): Admin

    How to obtain: Become promoted from the 'Moderator' rank or being specifically chosen.

    Description: 'Administrator' or 'Admin' is considered the highest achievable staff rank in the traditional ranking ladder. These players have access to nearly everything they would need for in-game help. Admins are expected to have a deep understanding of server plugins, along with extremely developed community management skills. If an issue is out of a Moderator's power to fix, it will be transferred to the Administrators.


    Forum Administrator
    In-game prefix: None.

    How to obtain: Being specifically hired.

    Description: 'Forum Administrator' is the only website-specific staff rank. These players not only manage the forums from backend, but also help when implementing new options and features on the website.

    System Administrator
    In-game prefix (default): Admin

    How to obtain: Become promoted from the 'Administrator' rank or being specifically chosen.

    Description: 'System Administrator' (previously known as 'Developer') is a staff rank above Administrator. Although this rank does not appear differently in-game, the title will be displayed on our Forums in the form of a rank tag. System Administrators or 'sysadmins' have access to manage Shadow Kingdom's dedicated servers and will be trained on how to host Minecraft servers.

    Server Owner
    In-game prefix (default): Owner

    How to obtain: Own the server.

    Description: Along with aiding System Administrators and Forum Administrators in their works, Server Owners' jobs are to oversee all operations on Shadow Kingdom-offered services, be it the website, Minecraft network, or the Discord server. Server Owners are automatically a part of the staff management team. Final decisions about server rules, plugins, updates and more go through the ownership team as a last resort.
