    Hi there everyone!

    With new changes to the way applications and staff training are being processed, the applications have been closed for the time being so we can implement these fully. If you already have an application up then please don't worry, it will go through the process as normal.

    For those of you who are thinking of applying, take this as an opportunity to fine-tune your applications and put that extra bit of work into them, and we look forward to seeing them.

    Thank you for your patience!

    You should consider ditching applications and approach those who would make good staff.

    Helper is a job most anyone can do adequately, but that's not necessarily true with MOD+ as they have an increasingly more powerful voice in policy matters. Truth is some people should never go past helper, but the system encourages helpers to move up and it gets increasingly hard to deny someone even if they probably aren't ready.

    Its not exactly a difficult job, either, especially with the amount of active staff along with the current total player count

    A big part of Meep is having the community volunteer to be staff. It's kind of like a rite of passage for a lot of people. This would create an even more closed off and biased staff team (not saying that it's perfect now).

    --

    As for the "changes" - I sure hope they are real lol. Last time we closed apps, nothing changed but we told the community that we were "fixing" things.

    Sure, I can get that but having applications creates a few issues and doesn't address some issues that have always existed. But staff shouldn't be about a rite of passage or necessarily about the community. Staffing is about the server and keeping it going and being honest a lot of younger kids that have ended up applying have made great helpers, alright mods and usually under-whelming super-mods (if they made it that far). It doesn't take much to be a good helper but when you get to the higher ranks that deal with policy, it turns out a vast majority of teenagers just don't necessarily think in the way solutions should be thought of, there isn't much "big picture" viewpoints from a younger age.

    Additionally applications creates pressure on staff to accept a certain number of them when realistically they should be denying most all applications except those that give the impression that they are above and beyond the run of the mill candidacy.

    The norms of MeepCraft need to be toss out because those norms got the server to the place it's at now, which isn't very spectacular.

    Apps should be closed because the server really doesn't need much more staff currently. There are 10 staff under admin which is more than adequate to deal with a server with a 50 player playerbase at any one time.

    There are more admins than any other staff.
