    IDMC Network | Staff Applications


    As many of you may know, we’ve lost many staff members this year. The Staff Applications form is always open, but not a lot of you know that there are some prerequisites to meet before you can reach the form. The requirements are seen on top of the form before you apply, however, if you do not meet the prerequisites, you are redirected to an “error” page. This tells me that some people are unaware of the Staff Applications Requirements, which is why either myself or other staff members always get asked, “Why can’t I apply?”. In order to reach the Staff Application form, you must meet two requirements.​

    • You must have at least 10 forum posts/messages.
    • You must have been a member of the forums for at least a week.
    The prerequisites are there so that people actually put in the effort to apply for staff. Having a lack of staff members is no reason to lower the standard. There were a lot of applicants who applied the day they joined the forums. To me, that tells a lot. Being a staff member means that you are active on all IDMC platforms, not just in-game. Adding these prerequisites cut down a lot of the staff applications that we received each week, however, as the saying goes, “quality over quantity”.

    • You must be at least 13 years old.
    • You must be active (online at least two or three hours a day or more).
    • You must have good SPaG (spelling, punctuation, and grammar).
    • You must be able to record (screen recorder) as evidence when you punish a player.
    • You must have Discord and be a member of our public IDMC Discord.
    • You must have a microphone (built-in or external).
    If you have a problem with any of these requirements, feel free to PM me on Discord (Melodaze#2492) or on the forums.


    • Please put effort into your application. You can never have too much information, only too little!
    • Focus on the staff related questions of the application more such as, “Why you should be staff?”.
    • Be honest, lying won’t get you far. Plagiarism of any kind will get you instantly denied!
    • Don’t ask a staff member to check out your staff application. That will actually get you instantly denied!
    • Just because you’re not staff (yet), it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t start having good SPaG. If you start now and apply later, that will increase your chances.
    • If you put a game mode as one of your, “top three game modes”, at least make it believable that you actually play it. If you really don’t have three, just state the ones that you do have and be honest and say that you don’t have another one.
    • Go over your application multiple times before you submit it. Reading it over will help you catch any mistakes or add extra information.
    • Reporting players will give you a better impression when judging your application.
    • If you get denied, don’t get discouraged. Many of our previous staff members took more than a few tries to get staff. If you really put your mind to it, you can achieve it.
    • This isn't an excuse for you to spam on the forums to obtain 10 posts, we will actively deny people who we believe farmed posts negatively. If you wish to contribute, we advise posting seeds, mods, useful information, or skins here.

    When you are denied, the general wait time is two weeks. If it’s more than that, it’s because we believe that what needs improvement is something that happens over time. Sometimes, the denial reason isn’t that of the application itself. Watch what you say, it can affect you in ways you didn’t think.
