    Hello, I’m here to give some tips and tricks for writing a staff application.

    1. Emojis
    This is gonna be my first point. Try to avoid the usage of emojis. (IMO: It makes you look unprofessional adding a ,, and in your application)

    2. Grammar / Spelling
    This is the point I see most people mess up on. Mistakes such as im, i, arent and theres. Or it can just be overall just lazyness such as cuz, idk, tbh.

    3. Experience’s
    You can’t really get more experience in a snap of a finger. But if you have one experience you can go like this: I was a moderator on (Server name) and I learnt (What you learned) I did this and that. If you don’t have any experience you just have to write about all your knowledge of Skyblock in general and such.

    4. Topic’s
    You always want to stay on topic and don’t go of topic like: “I am a very mature person and all my friends in real life say I am because I do this and that”
    Here’s also some topics you can take and write about:
    Maturity
    Respect
    Honesty
    Activity
    Forums
    Support rooms
    Professionalism
    Creativity
    Loyalty
    Your timetable
    Dedication

    5. Formatting and requirements
    Always follow the format, if you don’t you will be denied. If you don’t meet the requirements then don’t apply.

    6. Detail

    You obviously want to make your application as detailed as possible but remember quality over quantity. Don’t use useless detail.
    Don’t use unnecessary spacing.

    Example #1
    IGN: Umzk


    Age: 15


    Timezone: CEST


    Country: Sweden


    Do you own a quality microphone? yas


    Do you have Discord, Telegram, and Teamspeak?: yea


    Do you have any previous staff experiences?: yea


    Why do you want to become staff?: i want to help server


    Why should we accept you as staff?: i am veru profesional


    Additional Information:my name jeff

    Obviously this is a bad application because there’s no detail in the answers, lots of unnecessary spacing.

    Example #2
    IGN

    Umzk

    Age
    15

    Timezone
    CEST

    Country
    Sweden

    Do you own a quality microphone?
    Yes, I’ve got a good microphone.

    Do you have Discord, Telegram, and Teamspeak?:
    Yes, I’ve got all three.

    Do you have any previous staff experiences?:
    SAGEPVP

    I was staff here and I learned how to use basic commands and some advanced. I got admin here and I ended up resigning due to....

    Why do you want to become staff?:
    I want to help the community because .......

    Why should we accept you as staff?:
    Maturity

    I am mature because....

    Professionalism
    I am professional because......

    Schedule
    I can be on 50 hours a week.

    Additional Information:
    I play badminton in my free time

    Obviously it should be more detailed but since this is a example it’s not very detailed.

    7. Toxicity
    Honestly don’t curse in your application and try avoiding being toxic ingame

    Thank you for reading a like would be appreciated if it helped. -Umzk

    Actually, yes really xd. It’s very noticeable when a player has just applied for staff and is now on the forums. However, nobody says it’s a bad thing and you had the right idea, it’s just that it’s obvious you are trying to give yourself “a good look” for your application, though you haven’t been on the forums much. Once again, not saying it’s bad I’m just saying you should spend time on forums then apply rather then apply then start spending a bunch of time on forums like so many people do

    ^^^^ That's straight fax, when someone just applied they're gonna be very professional on here, until they get denied, then they just quit the forums.

    Hey Umzk!

    I thought there were some extremely helpful tips within this thread. I agree with all of your suggestions for success. These are indeed among what we look for in a well-written staff application. I appreciate you looking out for your fellow players on our network. Well done!

    As this is more of a guide rather than general discussion, I will be moving this post.

    Howdy Umzk.

    As being previously a staff member and (self-named) “Owning the staff application forum” as my time as a Helper and a Junior Moderator. I can tell that this is exactly what some of the things I looked for.

    Very good guide. These are extremely helpful for new and current Helper as this is their “section” on the forums. As well as helpful for upcoming Helpers who are interested in becoming a Helper.
