Hey there. We’re glad you’re interested in becoming a staff member. There are some key things you need to know about being a staff member:
If you visit our About page, you may know that we do things differently on Extrillius, especially with our staff members. We want to make sure that our staff members are the best of the best, and that is why staff applications of any kind are not allowed on the server. Our amazing staff members shape the network to what it is right now, and we want to make sure we continue that. So how exactly can you become a staff member? Well, there isn’t a set of guidelines that you follow, but we can give you some tips.
How to Become a Staff Member
1. Don’t ask
Asking to become a staff member is one of the worst things you can do. You have to prove to us that you play on the network because you enjoy it, believe it has potential, and have some great ideas that you can execute in order to help it. We won’t criticize you for asking once or twice to show your interest, but asking for a status update and asking constantly only proves that your only goal is to become a staff member and you show no interest in the actual network.
2. Stand out
We want to get to know everyone who joins, have a great time with them, and we want them to have a great time on the network as well. But our staff members aren’t just someone on the network who we liked — their name stood out to us. We instantly recognized them when they joined before they became staff members because we knew they were great helpers and great people from past experiences with them, and they played very frequently. Standing out is one of the most important things you need to do for us to put you on our radar. If you are a good helper and staff member, this should come naturally based on what you do on the network; it will be effortless. However, if you have to try to get attention, you still have a long ways to go.
3. Offer Something Unique
All of our staff members, while all sharing the fact that they’re wonderful people, all offer something unique. Some may be better in creativity. Those people are our builders. Some people may be better at answering questions and fairly dealing with stressful situations. Those are our moderators. Some people may be better with config files and management. Those are our admins, as well as our owners. You need to demonstrate a trait that will help us do our work faster and more efficiently while sharing the fact that you’re a wonderful person just like the other staff.
We take staff members very seriously. We know we have strict requirements, but this is only to recruit our amazing staff members for an enhanced experience with staff over other servers. We are always open to taking new people in, even with our strict requirements. We hope you will be our next staff member. Good luck!
