    Builder Application Guide


    Introduction

    Hey there, for anyone who doesn't know me my name is Delta_AH and I'm going to attempt to walk you through the application process and fill you in on what we are looking for and how to catch our attention with your application.

    Things To Keep In Mind

    So here you are ready to write up an application but first there are some things you should remember before you even attempt to answer any questions and since I'm such a nice person I'm going to tell you what they are so that your applications aren't instantly thrown aside into the garbage.

    Always Aim For Quality

    Next up is to always make sure you are going for quality even if that means you are giving less in quantity. It seems to be a common myth that if you write massive paragraphs in your application that we will think you are great and just accept you however that couldn't be any further from the truth.

    Writing long paragraphs where you just restate the same thing over and over again is reason enough for your application to get denied so making your answers short and sweet whilst focusing on putting in quality information will get you much further. Staff have many applications to go through and they probably wont appreciate it if they have to spend half an hour going through yours just to read the same stuff but worded a little differently.


    Proof Read Your Application

    I'll make this last one short. Make sure that you read over what you have wrote before you post it because the last thing you want to see is that your application got denied because you spelt something wrong a hundred times. The easiest way to do this would be to copy and paste your application into a word document and use spell check to make sure everything is correct and then after that make sure that you check your grammar is some what acceptable as it makes the application so much easier to read and gives you a better rep with the staff.

    What We Are Looking For

    Our application process for staff is relatively forgiving in the sense that there is a question template so you already know all the topics we want you to cover. This allows us to compare applicants easier as they all answering the same criteria however it doesn't mean that it will be any easier for you to get in as some will put more effort into these questions than others. I will paste the template below and then share what we look for below each of the questions.



    What is your in-game name?
    • Very basic question just give us your current minecraft name.
    How old are you?
    • Also a basic question, we just want to know as much about you as we can.
    What country are you currently living in?
    • Simple. Tell the truth.
    What timezone do you live in?
    • This just gives us a rough idea of the times you would likely be on the server. To find out your timezone go to
    What language(s) can you speak?
    • We are an English speaking server so that is the only language that is required however we like to know if people can speak other languages as they can come in handy at times.
    Do you have Discord?
    • We have a discord server for all members and staff. This is what we will be using for staff meetings and stuff so it is required, but it also serves as a social link for members and a way for us to inform them of coming updates.
    Why have you decided to apply to be a builder ?
    • This question isn't as daunting as it sounds, all we are looking for a simple answer. We want to know what made you say to yourself "Do you know what I'm going to apply to become a builder" so just make it short and sweet.
    Do you have any previous experience being a builder in a community/server?
    • This question isn't really as important as people think. There are a lot of people who are qualified to be a builder that have had no past experience so don't sweat it if you are one of them. However just to let you know saying you were builder on a friends server that was up for about a month doesn't count... sorry.
    Please provide some screenshots of your past builds with evidence that you built them.
    • Just provide us with some pictures of anything you have built and don't just throw in other peoples builds as we will be able to tell if you have lied by looking at your future builds.

    A Couple Words To Finish
    Unfortunately we don't have unlimited builder positions so a lot of people won't be accepted but don't worry to much if you stick to what you are doing you can still make a good name for yourself within the community which may just get you on a staff members/builders radar. My last bit of advice to all the applicants is: Don't get mad if you don't make it in (this just means you won't get another shot at it), please don't blame the application process if you don't get in (It's made this way for a reason), Learn form the experience (If you don't get in figure out why, learn from it, then try again).
