    Why do you aspire to become staff?
    I used to always want to become staff on Minevast (Now called ManaCube) and I did donate to support the server. I love investing my time into Manacube and it is amazing. I would love to become staff on Manacube now is because I feel like I have grown more mature and love helping everyone. I also would like to become staff because I when I usually come onto the server, it's at night. Though I do come on in the day, I feel like I could help a lot when most staff members are asleep in bed.

    How long have you played on ManaCube?
    I have played on Manacube for a long time. I have played since it was called Minevast, but I do not know the exact year. One thing I do know is that It was before 2016.

    How many hours can you dedicate to ManaCube?
    I can dedicate at least two to 9 hours per day on weekdays, and at least 3 to 12 hours a day on the weekend. I can also always find time to do school work and get the amazing grades I usually get.

    What skills do you feel you have that will help the server?
    I feel I have some skills that will help the server. Some of these skills include my motivation and my knowing and loving for the server. My motivation as a staff member is very large because I have donated and also have a deep loving for this extremely amazing server. I will always listen and try to do the best job I can as a staff member on Manacube. Here I will also list some particular skills I have that will definitely help the server.

    Maturity - I feel like I am a very mature person. This means that I can help players and not abuse my rank or troll them. I feel like being a mature person is a good skill for a staff member because it helps people look up to you and you could set an example for someone. You could be the role model for someone you don't even know, which would also improve your self-esteem.

    Focused - I feel like I am also a focused person. This means that I can focus and gets things done faster without wasting anyone's time, or even your own time. I feel like being focused is a good skill for a staff member because you can improve your work and even help and improve others work.

    What experiences have you had which could help you as staff?
    I have some experiences that have happened and could help me as staff. Sadly, I cannot put forward any moderating experiences seeming that I have never been a moderator or staff member on a server. Though, I can put forward some real-life experiences. One of them was an argument/fight between my friend and someone who was insulting her. This experience could help me as a staff member because I helped a lot. The bully was starting rumors about her, and she was too scared to tell anyone and he would tell her anymore. So, without making her scared, I told someone and everything was resolved in a good manner. She is now a more amazing person than she ever was. And also, this has improved me and motivated me even more to help others.

    What three attributes distinguish yourself from other players that qualify you to be a helper?
    1.Communicative - I am a very communicative person. I have gained this skill from mostly gaming, and also a little bit of my social life too. I feel like this would definitely help as a staff member.

    2.Good listener - I am also a very good listener. This distinguishes myself from other players because I want to be able to hear the player out and be fair to me and to them equally. Same follows for staff members, even if they are a higher rank.

    3.Professional - Even though I can be fun and outgoing at times, I can also be professional. This distinguishes me from other players because staff need to be professional at times, and it is very important to do just that.

    Please explain what you believe the role of a staff member is.
    In my opinion, the role of a staff member is to improve the server and help players as a whole. It isn't just to ban hackers or meet "famous" people", it is to dedicate yourself to something you want and not that you just want to abuse.

    Are you able to use recording software?
    Yes; I am able to use a recording software. I use fraps mostly, but sometimes you bandicam to record my desktop.

    Anything else we should know?
    There is one other thing that you should know about. It is just answering a key question a lot of applicants are asked, which is will school interfere with your work of being a staff member on this server. My answer to this question is that it will not. Though I do get homework often, I can make time to do it. I am a good student, yet I also am a good person who can use their time management wisely. Another thing I should mention is that I am in eighth grade. I just wanted to say this in case anyone was asking.

    You are aware that all information provided must be true, and if found to be false, will result in an automatic rejection of this application
    Yes

    Hello Austin. I appreciate you taking the time to make this. I love to see people who want to try and help out on the server. I mean, I am not staff but it makes the server better honestly. So about the application. It doesn't have much detail so I suggest adding some. The grammar is very well though in my opinion. You seem like a mature person and that helps a lot. After editing it, I would love to give a second opinion on it. If you do decide to. -1 for now. Good luck though!

    Hey there, Austin!

    I hope you're having a good day, I've read your staff application, and it's pretty good! You did say some stuff that was very original, and that's awesome you thought outside the box! Congratulations!

    However, improvements can always be made, and I'm here to tell you some that will help out!

    First off, you do not meet all the requirements. Before applying for staff, you must have 10 posts or replies on any thread on this forum. This may be one reason if you get rejected. The only bypass is if you have a staff member say you may disregard this requirement, and upload evidence of her/him saying that.

    You do meet the requirement for word count, so thanks for paying attention to that!

    I don't have a way of verifying, but please just make sure that you have at least 60 hours in-game on the server.

    Now, on to the application. There are a few grammar errors, and spelling errors. Just make sure you double check your work before submitting. Read aloud your application, if needed, to catch any grammatical errors you may have made. This will show attention to detail, which is a great trait for staff.

    I wish you best of luck on your application!

    You basically spammed the forums looking for stuff to reply and I don't appreciate that. SO, -1. Your grammar is off point and your application seems typical.

    Im trying to reply to all of the forums in the new website, because I replied to a lot on the old forums. Also i'm trying to reply to all of the ones in the archive. Most of my grammar is great, but only some of it is bad.

    To be honest, what I was trying to say was that you should your application and edit the grammar. If you know your grammar is lacking, FIX IT. Own up to the fact you spammed the forums because Emerald clearly told you to get 10 more quality posts and a few hours after and in the span of 20 minutes you posted about 8 non-quality posts on the forums. This is a definite -1. YOu don't have to reply to every single post in the new website because you did in the old website. Thank you.

    Hey again.
    So I see you have added some detail to the application. That's great. But the grammar portion is still lacking and I still think you could add a little more detail in the "What skills you have" part as well as the "What three attributes" part. You do explain yourself quite well and I feel like I understand what you're saying fairly well. Overall nice application, and although it could use a bit more detail, I like it.
    For now I'm going to take back my -1 and stay neutral about the application. Good luck!

    Sorry to hear that, even though that picture is of me and I don't know why they would take offense to that. To me, this means you disrespect me on how I look, therefore you have rated my post unfairly and rudely! Please add a better explanation ~ Austin

    I don't think horse meant that she most likely thought there were things wrong with your application but people had already said. It may seem rude but she was just stating an opinion. Most people don't use photos like selfies as their pfp.

    Also, you seem pretty young, compared to other staff.

    Hey! You now have over 10 quality posts, but not until after you posted this. It also seemed to be your first forum post (a thread) , although I could be wrong. -1 Good luck! And I like your pfp, I mean that
