    Been a lot of questions about the new helper rank, thought it best to prevent a lot of new posts asking questions to just simply make a Q&A post where you can ask all your questions in 1 place.

    PLEASE REFER TO THE ORIGINAL POST & READ QUESTION HERE TO SEE IF YOUR QUESTION IS ALREADY ANSWERED BEFORE YOU ASK HERE!

    FAQ:

    When will Helper apps be open?
    I'm shooting for around the 20th April, give or take. Currently helpers will only be chosen via invite from an admin.

    Will helper be easier to get than T-Mod?
    Theoretically, yes, as there is less perms with the rank, less responsibility, less experience required, and less ability to abuse the rank it will likely be easier to achieve for most.

    Will there only be 1 app now and if my app is good enough I will skip helper and can get T-Mod?
    No, there will be 2 completely separate applications, Helper is in no way a mandatory rank that must be achieved ever, you may apply for Helper, or apply for T-Mod, it is up to you.

    Can I get Helper even if I've applied for T-Mod?
    Yes, we may offer a certain player who has applied for T-Mod the ability to become a helper if we feel they would be a good staff member, however feel at the same time they lack certain abilities to become a T-Mod.

    Can I apply for both Helper and T-Mod at the same time?
    No, you may only have 1 application open at a time. You may either try for T-Mod, or try for Helper. This is mainly due to prevent flooding of many apps for both T-Mod and Helper. And it will help us choose certain players for a specific role and not read 2 of their apps, one for helper and one for t-mod, and be forced to decide which to give them.

    Is it possible to be promoted to T-Mod if I get helper first?
    Yes, getting helper first can be a good stepping stone for those who feel are not quite ready to apply for T-Mod Yet. We may in the future even add a way for Helpers specifically to apply for T-Mod after being Helper for a certain amount of time.

    What perms will they have, and what will they be able to do?
    Please refer to the original post: https://invadedlands.net/threads/helper-rank-being-added.7253/

    Will Helpers be able to spectate hackers and report them?
    Currently no, /v has potential for abuse and since Helpers won't vetted as much as Mods they will not receive this perm. We may however implement a feature in the future for Helpers to be able to more easily spectate, record, and report hackers to other staff with no potential for abuse.

    Will you make the helper rank more, “looser” to get or will it be just as strict to get it as t-mod?

    There will be less perms, less responsibility, and less chances to abuse with the helper rank so it will odds are be easier to achieve than T-Mod.

    Is it possible to get promoted from Helper to T-Mod if you e.g. work hard enough.

    I think admins will promote the helper if they think the helper is good enough.

    It is possible, in the future we may even just add an application system for helpers to apply for T-Mod.


    I'm shooting for next weekend, so like 10 days.


    There will be 2 separate applications, you can either choose to apply for helper, or simply apply for Mod skipping helper altogether. Helper is NOT a mandatory rank you must go for before T-Mod, it is optional.

    It's a Q&A. Not "shitposting" to get attention.

    WIll they have a way to check who is banned to close reports were the player was already banned from the anti cheat?

    lso I heard something that mods could recommend players so they won't have to apply is this true?

    Yes, they will have perms to check the history of a player and close all player reports of players that are already banned.

    We always accept Moderators recommendations when choosing any staff member for any role. It is better to hired someone who is known rather than a complete stranger. However being recommended by a moderator does not give you a 100% chance of being hired.
