    Say someone just joined the staff team for the first time and they were Helper. What advice/tips would you give them?

    Don’t be an idiot. Don’t be cocky. Don’t abuse.

    Get 100% evidence b4 banning someone.
    Don’t be toxic.
    Try not to be an abusive staff member.
    Talk to the community, don’t ignore them once you’ve gotten helper.

    Now, this is actual serious advice I would give.

    1) Listen. You, as a helper are representing the server, Skycade, so you want to enhance the players' experience as much as possible. As such, you need to be able to take constructive criticism, and listen to your players to help improve the server.

    2) Help and ask. As the name suggests, you should help people. Don't be afraid to ask another person yourself if you are not sure on the answer, this will make sure you give the right answer to the player.

    3) Hackers. On the subject of hackers, you should also be keeping an eye out for them, as they are usually there to play unfairly and mess with another player's gameplay.

    4) Be organized. When you get bombarded with players sometimes, it's best to organize, or call on another staff member for help. Usually a hacker needing to be banned would come first, unless the player who needs help needs urgent help. You should organize what you have to do in a priority list, tackling the highest priority things first. If you have to go off somewhere, it's best to tell the player you are helping so that they know you have something else you have to quickly handle and that they don't then call you a bad staff member.

    The players on the server are what make your server a popular one. They vote, they help with reports, and they bring other people to the server. "The best way to make your server popular, is to make it unique from the others." Skycade has a great staff team, and you will most certainly be able to succeed if you can follow with your players.

    Wonderful idea


    Actually I just think you should be You. Don't try to change yourself because of your role, if you were accepted, you were accepted for a reason

    Also catch haxors and such :p

    don't suck, get evidence, always say a player's full name to annoy them as much as possible, be overwhelmingly positive on introduction threads, basically just be a mega mini-mod *in the rzerski convention mini is around -2 and mega is +1 so mod-1=helper therefore you are a helper*
    and always deny any appeals against alex

    I merged your posts together, but next time you should use the edit button to edit your posts together instead of posting multiple times in a row.

    Everything everybody else has said pretty much sums up any advice I could give. Here's a big one though- keep within the community. Do the job you applied for but make sure to keep tabs with the players, nothing would annoy me more than a staff who goes MIA the minute they get a higher rank then us "peasants" (quoting Jack don't kill me).

    You're totally right! Very nice point you made. All staff must stick to their job and must to disobey it.

    Ok! I'll do that!

    This is wrong. Why would you warn someone if they are hacking? Just ban them straight away. In general, most mute offences need a warning though.
