    As HarvestMC expands, so does the staff team! But where does the staff come from? Why you of course! With a renewed interest in accepting staff, as well as searching for fresh staff, many people apply without knowing what the server is looking for. This is the fastest way to get denied.

    If you follow my tips and ideas, I guarantee you will be a better candidate and blow the other applicants out of the water!

    Helper is the lowest position on the staff team - but it might be the most important! Helpers do exactly what it sounds like - they help out the staff team and the players. For the most part, helpers only help encourage the rules, not quite moderate with mutes, kicks, and bans. Helpers are the first person that staff turns to for beta testers, and suggestions for the server. Overall, it's an important role that acts as a stepping stone to bigger and better things!

    Guidelines and tips for applying:
    1. Check your playtime with /played . You will always get denied if you are under 24 hours of play time, no exceptions.
    2. Take one minute and google "What is my time zone?" A lot of people will be denied under the idea that if you cannot follow simple instructions then you're not mature enough to be staff. When filling out the application, use the proper timezone code (EST, MST, CT).
    3. Before you apply, as well as once you submit your application, start testing the waters by helping out on the server! Answer questions that new players pose, follow the rules, be kind and considerate to players and staff, as well as be willing to help anyone. Actions speak louder than words!
    4. Forgo empty promises. When applying, don't make any promises about how you're going to swear yourself to the server, or be the best there is. Follow simple guidelines about creating manageable goals. (1. Tell us what makes you different from the other applicants. 2. Tell us something that you've done in the past to prove to us you would be a good staff member. 3. Give an example of something you've done on the server (with witnesses) about how you've handled the rules or helped a player in an exceptional way.)
    5. Do not bother staff about checking the applications. This is a big no-no! When the application is in limbo, the staff members are observing the way you interact with players. (We watch to see if you're helpful, nice, and mature.) When you harass a staff member to check it, we assume you are immature, inpatient, and too young to handle the responsibilities.
    Overall: If you want staff, put in the effort to show us you're mature by answering the application questions correctly, and give us some proof that you can handle the job and would be good at it. Don't bother staff to check it, and while you're waiting, help players to show us you're a good applicant.

    Builders are a very important part of the server. With new updates in development right now to help improve the way the server operates and looks, we need people who are skilled in creation to help design the new updates!

    Guidelines and tips for applying:
    1. Check your playtime with /played . You will always get denied if you are under 24 hours of play time, no exceptions.
    2. Take one minute and google "What is my time zone?" A lot of people will be denied under the idea that if you cannot follow simple instructions then you're not mature enough to be staff. When filling out the application, use the proper timezone code (EST, MST, CT).
    3. Before you apply, as well as once you submit your application, start testing the waters by creating some basic ideas on your plot. This will be our basis for deciding whether or not you're serious about being a builder or not. We also judge whether or not it's copied, and varying kinds of builds. Don't stick to only one kind - try experimenting!
    4. Have a Skype! It's much more important on a Builder application to be contactable - we want to ask you questions about builds, as well as find out when you're available to run some practice builds on our test server.
    5. Do not bother staff about checking the applications. This is a big no-no! When the application is in limbo, the staff members are observing the way you interact with players. (We watch to see if you're helpful, nice, and mature.) When you harass a staff member to check it, we assume you are immature, inpatient, and too young to handle the responsibilities.
    6. Brush up on your plugin skills! Very rarely will staff ever ask you to build by hand. Practice using plugins such as World Edit and Voxel Sniper and make sure to show us some examples of your fantastic builds.
    Overall: If you want builder, put in the effort to show us you're mature by answering the application questions correctly, and give us some proof that you can handle the job and would be good at it. Don't bother staff to check it, and while you're waiting, come up with some ideas to create some builds.
