    Hello everybody!

    Previously, we only closed staff applications, if the applicant did not meet the (low) requirements or if they were completely absent in game for at least two months. The idea behind that was, to give us a pool of open applications to choose from, whenever there was a need for new staff members. However, this system was also kind of unfair towards everybody who had low chances of being accepted in the first place, leaving their application without a reply for months or longer.

    Therefore, we decided to implement a new, much more transparent system, which I am going to explain in this post. From now on, each new application will be discussed among the staff members and will get a reply within two weeks. Depending on this, there will be three possible outcomes:

    • The application is accepted. - The applicant will be contacted by staff to schedule the training.

    • The application is kept open (for a maximum of two months). - This could for example happen if the candidate is promising, but there are currently no open spaces or if they are fairly new and we would like to see if they remain active first.

    • The application is denied. - If we think the applicant is not fitting for the position at the moment. This does not mean that the next application will be denied as well though, as there can be many reasons for this (e.g. recent conflict with the rules, low activity, etc.).

    Since there are many open applications right now, we have decided to close all the open ones, so we can start from a clean slate. If your application was among those and you are still interested in becoming a staff member, you can of course apply again, once the 30 days specified in the Guidelines and Requirements have passed.

    Best of Luck!
