Okay, I've never actually become staff. This is just some traits I have noticed from people who are on their 113th staff application and still haven't had their hopes destroyed and are convinced they would be an amazing moderator.

1. Show your personality. This is one of the most important ones on this list. Take @Joostagram, @Bcof, or @AstroStqr✧. They got accepted as moderator because they weren't just constantly telling people to stick to the format, or they didn't begin their messages with "Hey, (OP)!" and sign them all the time. Tryhards are annoying, and the staff managers are aware of that.

2. You're just going to be a helper. Do not expect to have any sort of power above other players. Think of being a moderator as a normal player, with extra permissions.

3. Keep your expectations low. When you apply for staff, you shouldn't expect to become a helper. You should be ready for it to get denied, and you should have the right amount of surprise if it does get accepted. Keep the bar low, so you can step over it when you need to.

4. Don't get overwhelmed by it if you do become a helper. Don't think you need to ditch everything, including skyblock islands, smp bases, or even real life to focus on being a helper. Although I'm not sure if they have mentors on skycade anymore, if they do, you should talk to them if you feel like it's getting overwhelming.

5. Don't tryhard. Be a normal player. Like I said before, tryhards are annoying. Don't try to act like you're staff. Sure, you can have some moderator traits, but don't constantly submit staff applications, don't constantly try to be a moderator even when you're not.

Hey Jeff!
May I remind you, the report format can be found at the top of the Report a Player category.

Skycade uses the Mentor System.

Hey Salmon!
I formatted my message like that because he said to do that to get denied.
Kindest Regards,

Really great tips! I'm sure that this will be really helpful for people who are looking to apply for Helper. Also, Skycade still does use the mentor system, as PigMatt said

DO:
- Continue as a normal player after applying
- Be friendly in the community
- Try and avoid punishments when you decide to apply.
DONT:
- Ask for help on your application. This includes: “What are some tips for applying for staff?” “Can you please read my application?” “I really want to be staff!”
- Obnoxiously minimod
- Apply literally the exact millisecond after 4 weeks have passed
- Avoid telling people you have applied.
- Ignore your mistakes

This thread is a cool concept, you had a really good thought about this however:

Regardless of what people are saying, minimoding has no affect on your application.

However, players will most likely dislike you if you do it. Although you have a really good heart, if players are going to dislike you. You are more likely to become toxic to them, causing staff members to have a bad opinion on you, or even the staff manager.

Try your best and be honest! Good luck to anybody who applies.
