Please read BEFORE applying


1: Read this thoroughly
2: Copy template down below
3: Go back out to Forums Main Page
4: Click "Applications"
5: Click "Add topic"
6: Paste template and answer.

Note: Only fully answered applications that meet requirements will be taken seriously.
-All ranks must be applied for in order. If you're a first time applicant, that means Builder or Helper.


-Donations are no longer required but helps score brownie points in the loyalty department
-Do not beg staff to look over your application right after applying. All applications for the position(s) that open will be read thoroughly when the time comes.
-You're welcome to apply any time even if we don't have a position open or won't for a long time! Oldest apps of those still active (most logged recent hours) on the server are read and considered first.
We look forward to new members on our team as we need them! Good luck!
-Maturity, patience, cooperation, positive attitude and good communication are the minimum fundamentals of our build and staff team. If it is apparent you are lacking in any of these, your app is not likely to be considered.


ALL rank-requirements:
- Must have joined our Hollowtree Discord and have the ability to listen in voice chat for meetings
- Must have a minimum of 100 votes in the last month
- Minimum 5 days of gameplay per month (120 hours)
- 0 Misdemeanors in the last month (no mutes or bans)
- Donator is not required but is considered


- You're applying for a VOLUNTEER staff position on a donation-based game server. Proceeds go back into the development and monthly server costs, even the owner doesn't get "paid!" It IS however, still run like a business as much as possible, so you are expected to behave professionally, just like an employee.
You're expected to show up and /vote on a regular basis. More active staff may be given your place without warning later, if not.

Staff are often expected to be able to read, learn, and familiarize with things such as this post. If you don't mention the code word "ImADedicatedStaffCandidate" in the bottom of your staff application, chances are you will not be considered for staff.

Congrats, you have a solid shot now! Just copy and paste the template posted on the "Example Application" page, make a new thread in the "Apps" section of the forums Applications container, and answer the questions as clearly, directly, and thoroughly as you can.
