Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of these changes?
We added the Moderator role as the starting role for Staff Applications for easier progression and picking up of skills as a Staff and will be more beginner-friendly to newer individuals who have yet to experience the responsibilities of a member of Staff. This will allow individuals to be able to first grasp the responsibilities required of a single platform before being given more aspects to moderate. This is also known as "progressive training".

What are the job scopes of each role available?
Moderator: Moderation of Discord server
Community Marshal: Moderation of Discord server and Game (with limited permissions)
Game Master: Moderation of Discord server, Forum, and Game, Events Planning


Is it compulsory to accept a promotion from Moderator to Community Marshal?
Applicants, if approved, are allowed to remain as a Moderator if they wish. It is optional for a Moderator to promote depending on their eligibility provided by the Staff team.

Is it still possible to apply for the Community Marshal role directly?
No. All applicants, if approved, will start off as a Moderator.

Are the Staff allowed to play their player account(s)?
Yes. The Staff is allowed to play in their player account(s), however, all Staff responsibilities will take priority (excluding real-life commitments) over commitments for their player account(s).
