Currently there is NO application process for the helper rank! Currently players if chosen will be invited to the Helper team by an admin. I intend to create an application process for players to apply for helper in the upcoming week or two. Hello Invaded players, I have decided to add in a new rank. Basically it has come to my attention that I am in need of some help. Particularly in the area of player reports and some select Staff applications. I have to handle most Appeals, apps, and player reports as well as other InvadedLands work, schoolwork and a regular upload schedule for yt. Point is I am very busy and don’t always have the time or energy for a lot of player reports. Meaning I have decided to create the Helper rank, which sole purpose will to be help me and the server out by muting chat offenders in game and helping out on the forums with help posts and player reports. Helper will also act as a stepping stone on your way to T-Mod on certain servers. We may also recommend certain Moderator applicants receive Helper instead of T-Mod as we feel they may not yet be qualified for moderator (e.g. minimal staff experience, not too much time on the server...etc) However we want to still offer them a chance to learn and one day recieve their chance. What all will Helper will have and be able to do: In-game: Since the rank tasks ingame are less demanding than that of a Mod, Helpers will have global Helper rank. Ability to host all eveents. Helpers will have perms to mute/kick Perms to check history of players Helpers will NOT have perm to ban or tempban players and are not expected in any way to interfere with a hacker (mute/kick them...etc), if a Helper thinks a player is hacking they MUST report it to higher staff or record and report them. Forums: Move/delete posts Warn players for breaking forum rules Ability to handle chat related Player reports and select Staff Applications (more details once hired as helper) Helpers will not have perm to forum ban or have perm to view ban appeals. Discord: Perm to delete messages Access to certain staff related channels. Kick members for breaking certain rules Manage NickNames Manage text Messages. Required duties Helpers MUST do! Anything listed below is a duty that Helpers are 100% expected and required to do as a helper, failing to do even 1 of these things on a regular basis will be grounds for a demotion. Moderating chat ingame Helping players ingame Actively handling chat offense player reports (Handling them preferably daily as to not pile up, however Helpers would only be required to handle them at least on a weekly basis)None Marking hacking offense player reports for higher staff to handle. Duties that are NOT required but recommended as Helper! The duties below are things that are not required for Helpers to do however they can choose to do so if they want. And doing these could help them with a better chance at one day being promoted to T-Mod on a select server. Replying the help posts on the forums Handling certain staff apps that are blatantly not qualified to be Mod (e.g. Player doesn’t fit every requirement to even apply.) Moderating the voice and text channels on discord Recording and reporting hackers In the future as the staff team grows I do intend to add in a system for Helpers to spectate, record, and report hackers to higher staff members specifically. This would act as a training phase for helpers on their way to achieving the T-Mod rank if they so desire.
