Helper Applications are no longer open

Recommended Posts

UPDATE: Applications are now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied. We will now go through the selection process which may take a while, we'll let you know by email if you made the cut.


Hey everyone, been a while!

Diversity has been getting a little quiet lately. We're aware of this and have some plans to help get things back in order. A few staff members have resigned in the last few months, so we're looking to expand our team once again. As of today, we are now accepting new Helper applications.

 

What is a Helper?

We don't often talk about what "Helpers" do on Diversity and I'd like to explain their role. Helpers are our first line of support for all players. They have a few basic tools at hand to help with many situations, like checking logs to see who has taken something out of a chest, or temporarily removing a troublesome player from the server.

Helpers not only help the players, they help the Moderators and Admins as well. By taking care of certain tasks, the Helpers allow the higher levelled staff to do their jobs easier.

 

What is required of a Helper?

It's not just a fancy green tag next to your name, as a helper you will be required to:

  • Encourage good behaviour in game and follow all the rules - lead by example.
  • Be the first line of response to players needing assistance in chat.
  • Perform routine checks of our various public farms, communicating with other staff as you do so.
  • Use the staff communication platform Slack to notify other staff of certain events online.
  • Take part in regular monthly staff meetings on Slack.
  • Help the moderators/admins as needed.

We tend to be quite strict with staff responsibilities, so if we find you are not pulling your weight, demotion is possible. If you think you're up to the tasks involved, please apply.

 

Who can apply for Helper?

We encourage everyone to apply, however we can't accept applications from all of you. Please be aware of the following:

  • You must be at least 13 years old. We use tools such as Google Drive and Slack which restrict usage to people over the age of 13.
  • Having multiple warnings, kicks or bans can negatively affect your application. If you've had a history of breaking our rules then you're unlikely to make it as a Helper. If you're unsure, apply anyway.
  • There is no SMP level requirement but having more time played on Diversity will certainly give you an advantage over others.
  • Please don't apply if your only reasoning for being a Helper is that it's "cool". We want people who genuinely want to help the players and staff, and to help the network evolve.

 

If you've read and understood the above and still want to give a shot at becoming a Helper - apply now.

Applications close Sunday 19th November.

 

But don't leave quite yet!

We are also looking to better our Vanilla server and build up a dedicated player base. In order to do that, we will need to take on a few players who will specifically look over and moderate the Vanilla server.

 

What is a Vanilla Mod?

The Vanilla Mod position is a new role to Diversity. We've decided to create it to give the Vanilla server some love that it deserves. Vanilla Mods will help run the server and be in charge of organizing community events, design a set of rules, and moderate the server. These Moderators will be in charge of checking logs and banning players when issues arise on the server. They will be able to fly and use creative mode, although this should be used at the bare minimum as the whole idea for a vanilla server is to keep it vanilla. 

They will not have staff powers on the SMP server, but will have access to tools we all use such as Slack and our Google Drive. If they need help or have any questions, the admins will be able to help there too. 

The requirements to become a Vanilla Moderator are the same as those to become a Helper on SMP. If you have any further questions or concerns, please ask them. This is a brand new role and we are still working out the kinks.

 

Now if you've read and understood the following and are interested in becoming a Vanilla Mod, click here to apply - apply now.

Applications close Sunday 19th November.

When will the new staff be announced?

This question often pops up. Usually what happens is we wait until the close date (Nov 19) before we begin making any decisions. After applications close, staff will each decide on who they think should be our next lot of Helpers. This process can take a while, days, weeks, it depends how proactive everyone is about it all. Once a decent amount of staff have made their decision, we compare all the staff results and see who makes it out on top, from there we make informed decisions on who would be best for the role and we also decide how many new staff members we will recruit. Again, this process can take a while due to most of us being in different time zones. We try our best to make a choice as quickly as possible, but we also want to make sure we're making the right choice .

Please try not to repeatedly ask us when the Helpers will be chosen, it can make you come across as pushy and may possibly affect your application.

I want to apply, but I am really busy with schoolwork (and I really hate school, but that's off-topic) and so I can't really be involved. Does anyone have any suggestions/thoughts on the issue?

Aw too late! I just saw the announcement today. I've been gone for a while! 

Good luck to those that applied!
