The following details the different departments within Massivecraft. This is done so potential Aspirants can better understand the work each department does, and can apply to the department best fitting their set of skills. It will also serve as a status center for all departments in need of new aspirants. Game: Recruiting! The Game Department handles most in-game moderation and punishments, non-lore player events, survival rule enforcement, chat moderation, and more. Specifically, Game Department members are expected to undergo a sort of training process (taught by ranked Game Staff) to learn how to effectively moderate within the community, and what punishments are expected for specific rule violations. When gaining a Rank, Game Staff are expected to train the lower ranks as they were trained, and host events alongside their fellow staff. Aspirants inclined toward team-building, mentorship, and rule enforcement will find themselves drawn toward this Department. For reference, the Game Department has @LumosJared and @CS_Birb as Direction support World: Recruiting! The World Department is behind every fantastical build on the server, from giant survival world maps to charming cottages in Regalia. The World Staff handle building within Minecraft in all its forms. Specifically, World Staff members are expected to be able to not only build on request in a short period of time but to be able to give constructive feedback to their fellow staff on how to best improve the current build style. Massivecraft build quality is in a constant state of self-improvement, so builders of all kinds will be welcome within this department. Currently, few World Staff members actually play a direct role in world building. Moreso, updating Regalia and creating new builds for the other departments events is their main drive and source of work. For reference, the World Department Head is @MonMarty Lore: Recruiting! The Lore Department hosts Lore Events, writes and processes the lore on our Wiki, processes Character Sheets, Player Quests, Special Permissions, and much more. Specifically, the Lore Staff have a varied set of tasks the department is expected to do, but most staff will be expected to write, edit, and host lore events in-game. Artists can also find a home in the Department by creating art for the Wiki. Aspirants who took a liking to their English Classes, who can edit and give constructive writing critiques, and have a firm understanding of the Lore will find this Department a welcome spot. For reference, the Lore Department Heads are @LumosJared and @MonMarty Public Relations: Recruiting! The PR Department handles new posts, Daily Creepers covering everything from factions to lore events, and generally handles all press the server gets both internally and externally. Any background in Public Relations (whether it be in political campaigns, website management, community organizing, the lot) is going to be sought after in new recruits to this department. More even than that, this Department is the ideal for someone who wants to innovate how Massive is exposed on external sites and help us grow in terms of reach. For reference, the PR Department Head is @SpunSugar Tech: Recruiting! The Tech Department handles all forms of coding and server maintenance, as well as the creation and tweaking of all our existing plugins. Whether it be tweaking existing plugins or creating our very own (We have over 30 as of writing), the Tech Department is the ideal place for anyone with coding experience who wants a crack at developing and working on the server itself. For reference, the Tech Department heads are @CS_Birb and @LumosJared Direction: Not Recruiting! The Direction Department is the only department that can’t be joined right away. Direction members are in charge of the overall running of the server and assigning the most vital tasks to ensure the server continues to innovate and grow. Specifically, the Direction Members are hand-picked from the 7 Departments to play a larger role in running the server and communicating the needs of it to the rest of the Team. These members have usually been with Massive for months, if not years, and every month undertake large-scale projects to earn their place and help the server grow. After studying the above department descriptions, please do fill out the Aspirant Application, which can be found here. As part of the Massivecraft Staff credo, we keep a Codex of all important information regarding staff quality standards. It’s suggested you take a gander at it here before applying. Remember a rejected application is never final, and the status of what Departments need members will be updated every Sunday on this page, as well as any news pertaining to staff recruitment or Department changes. Take care and have a Massive Day!
