Staff Requirements & Application Format

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Staff Requirements & Application Format.

This guide will explain the Staff Requirements and Application Format. Please note that submitting an application without the proper requirements will result in an immediate denial of application, unless a Manager or Owner has told you otherwise.

Note: This application is strictly for the Helper role. Moderator and Senior Moderator are obtained after a series of promotion considerations during their time as a Helper based on performance and activity. If you are seeking to do Administrative work, please inquire with the General Manager.

Staff Requirements

  • 15 Years Old
  • A Forums Account (with an uploaded profile avatar, profile cover photo, and details filled out)
    • A minimum of 3 Post Count
  • A Linked Discord Account
  • A minimum of 7 days played on The Nexous Network
  • You must not be staff on another server or network
  • You must have a microphone
  • No more than 2 Server Bans (30 Day Ban)
  • No more than 5 Server Mutes

[September-November ONLY]: The 7 days played requirement may be considered to help recruit staff for our new network. However, this will only apply to people who seem genuinely interested in the server (i.e. many hours on the first few days, actively discussing, etc.).

Application Format

Your application must follow this format. If it does not, your applications will be instantly denied.

Minecraft Name:
Discord Username:


What is your favorite Nexous server, and why?

How much time can you contribute to this position?

Have you ever been banned or muted from The Nexous? Please list all occurrences you can remember, and an explanation.

What do you consider your best skillset? Please explain.

Do you have any other moderation or staffing experience? Please explain.


Scenario #1: You have muted a player incorrectly. You do your best to apologize, and compensate for the error in your punishment, but the player begins saying things like, "I'm going to report you to the admins!" or "You are a terrible Helper, you should be demoted!" Please explain how you would handle this situation. Please give us some insight on personal emotion and professional emotion.

Scenario #2: You're a Helper, and someone is clearly hacking or cheating. No upper staff are online, and you are finding it difficult to get in contact with any of them via Discord or other platforms. What steps would you take with your minimal power to prevent the cheating from happening, or on the other hand, reassuring upset players who are victims of the cheating?

Scenario #3: Your emotions get the best of you, it happens to the best of us. You choose to mute a player who is really upsetting you or annoying you, and maybe in the moment you think it's a correct form of punishment. However, later you realize or another staff member tells you that the punishment was not valid. What steps do you take to both gain forgiveness from your management and from the player?

Scenario #4: Promotion day is upon us! You feel really sure you'll get promoted this time. You've been active, punishing correctly, and helping every single player around Nexous. You've been a Helper longer than any of the others at this point. You feel like it's almost impossible for you to not be chosen. Your excitement, heart rate, and adrenaline is very high, because you just know it will happen. It doesn't. How do you feel? How is that going to reflect on your continued work for Nexous?


Application Tips

  1. Your responses to the longer questions and scenarios should not be any less than 3 sentences.
  2. Be descriptive. It's very hard for an Application Reviewer to understand your desire to be staff if you are not describing yourself very well.
  3. Be honest. Honesty is the key to building respect and trust with the management, and that starts here in this application. We often refer back to applications to determine if you were being honest or not. So, if you don't want to be caught later and be permanently unable to be staff, then just be honest now.
  4. You're trying to impress us. Leaving out detail and information can be critical towards your acceptance. We want to know everything you have to offer.
  5. Do not include images, and keep the font simple.
  6. Answer the scenarios based on your developed personality traits. Do not try to be someone else. Trust us, we will know immediately in the interview if your response matches the personality we open up during your interview.
  7. Be prepared to interview! Nothing can be more frustrating for the management than not being able to get you into an interview as soon as they need you. The more available you make yourself, the more likely we will see this in your potential role.
  8. If you have a punishment history, make sure that history is quite distant, and prove you have become more responsible and mature through your forum posts and in-game chats.
  9. Do not contact staff AT ALL during the process. From the moment you submit your application, to the moment you interview, you are not allowed to discuss anything about becoming staff, applying for staff, etc. with any of our staff. We do this because our staff have no say or anything in your application, and we do not appreciate applicants who attempt to push such obligations onto our staff.


If you meet the requirements, and feel prepared to apply and interview for a Helper position, you may Apply Now!
