    Hello everyone! You may have noticed over the past week some changes to certain staff ranks. These changes are part of a complete staff overhaul that we have been working on in order to improve motivation and efficiency. The following picture and explanations will elaborate on what these changes entail.

    [​IMG]


    Jack - Owner and final decision maker.

    System Admin - Currently Dwayne. In charge of ensuring the smooth running of plugins and the physical server. Organises the developers.

    Developer(s) - Currently Ricky. Develops plugins for the server.

    Staff Manager - Currently Holly. Manages all things staff related, including promotions, demotions, applications and monitoring activity.

    Community Manager - Currently Alex. Manages the server and community. Responsible for all things server related, the price of dirt, the rules, the timing of resets and so on. They are also responsible for the forums, events and media. Working closely with the Staff Manager and Admin(s) the Community Manager runs 2 teams made up of Mods and SrMods: Media and Events.

    Admin(s) - Works closely with the staff manager and community manager. Helps with staff applications, events and decisions. Currently Reece.

    Sr Mods- Responsible for looking after the helpers and reporting back to the staff manager. Each helper will be assigned a senior mod who will interact with them for their duration of being a helper. In-Game, sr mods act like mods but also have access to commands such as checking homes to cater for more complex punishments.

    Mods - Responsible for banning and muting rule breakers and dealing with reports and appeals on the forums.

    Helpers - Helpers have permissions to temporarily mute and ban players. Each helper will be assigned a sr mod as a mentor. Helpers must show their mentor proof of each ban that they make, even if an appeal is not made. Helpers have a period of one month to prove themselves as capable of moderator. After the month, the sr mod will discuss with the staff manager if the helper will be demoted or promoted. The sr mod may decide to test the helper for another 2 weeks, but after this fortnight, no more time will be given to prove oneself.

    Media Team: The Media Team will be in charge of all things media. They’ll handle big announcements, the Twitter, any YouTubers (Large YouTubers will deal with the Community Manager or Jack directly) and the general promotion of Skycade.

    Events Team: The Events Team will handle all Skycade events, they will be tasked with creating new events, designing the arenas for them and of course running the events themselves. In conjunction with the Media Team they’ll also have to promote events in order to attract players onto the server.

    If you have any questions regarding these changes, feel free to ask them below!

    On the topic of staff, are you taking helpers right now, because I applied, and I'm not sure if you are. Just want to make sure. Anyways, good overhaul explanation. On my behalf, I want to say to everyone who is reading, please contact the right people. For example, if you are want to apply and have a question, don't ask Alex, ask Holly. If you ask the wrong people, don't expect a clear response. Don't think staff are unprofessional if they can't answer a question that has nothing to do with what their job is. This has happened to me where I have asked the wrong staff and gotten a, "I have no clue!" Answer. Regards to that, feel free to ask the right staff all your questions.

    Helper is a trial, it isn't really a useful position. The staff can make it 1 and half if they need more time, though I think a month is enough.

    Question... I know being a mod adds a lot of extra work and more time is needed. I may not have that time so could someone stay as a helper? I recently applied.
