    There needs to be more staff, yes AJ and Awesom just got promoted, but (no offense to you two) it seems like they were filling in the cracks left from losing JOKOKE and xBaeta (<- still mod, but... very, very, very, inactive on this server). I think more staff would be best especially considering the new gamemode coming out soon.

    Yes, but again you need to understand that they are people that volunteer to help out. They come on the server a lot, more often than many other players in fact, though they also enjoy doing other things and can't be online at those times. New content will mean that staff will be on even more often.

    Also, recognize that winter break just ended which means our staff now have school of course.

    That is, if the Factions server doesn't become dead content after a week and it's going to have no one one. Arsenal - Fear - MM

    Arsenal is (I think) still in development and MM got a good amount of people at times over Christmas break, but I really hope factions won't just flop over after a week as well.

    Personally, I say you need to start to recruit at least another 7 members of staff, it just gets so frustrating when there's a hacker but no mods on! You should start messaging then interviewing some possible people who would be fit for duty, because rarely anybody applies. But, yes, please get more ASAP

    I want to apply, but it would be impossible for me to be accepted because nobody likes me....:(

    A lot of people consider this, but the chances of getting through are probably quite slim

    That's a terrible pessimistic way of viewing staff applications.

    Well, I don't exactly know the barriers of getting into Staff, but from my interpretations on the shortage of staff (8), it seems quite slim. But I guess that all weighs down on the ratios of applications

    Well the barriers seem quite simple (to myself that it). The staff don't want someone who will suddenly stop playing after a week or two after they are accepted. Also the staff (I have no way of knowing this, just going off the top of my head about current staff members) will want someone who is able to handle a massive amount of work when the server is busy (like responding to @). Finally, Dedication. One value that I think would be important for staff is Dedication to helping, and making the server an even better than it was before.

    (This was not intended to be a Flame post. I just wanted to put out to clarify what was probably said before. That the staff look for the best to be staff.) :p

    We have come up with solutions to ensure that this doesn't take place. I believe that most people will thoroughly enjoy factions and it will also be easier to advertise compared to other gamemodes, as well as appeal to other players.

    I know a thousand people have probably asked, but do you have a predicted/ aimed date for the factions to be released?

    I honestly cant even think of at least 4 people that deserve mod at this specific time, let alone 7 people :L

    (Please note this is my OWN opinion and not the staffs opinion as a group)(<- not aimed at you personally Jordan)

    Literally we just had this discussion on Teamspeak an hour ago, there is no one who can fill the qualities of a staff member at this current time.

    May I just mention sara? I know she is Builder, but I and others think that she would make a fabulous mod

    You can mention who you want, but I wont be giving out names on who I think would be a good staff member, if there even is any, as that is for the staff to discuss.

    True, but new content should never be the reason which causes staff to play more. This would apply to players like myself, but staff should be online because that is their "job". Obviously, their real life should and need to be before- But if they can't be online for say, 2-3 hours a day, in my opinion they shouldn't deserve a staff spot. Also, the fact that so many staff are from American time zone isn't really helping.
