    I'd like to start this post off by thanking all of you who have applied for moderator on Mineswine in hopes to help improve the server and keep it a safe place for everyone to enjoy (all 78 of you)! This being said, we are not approving moderator applications going forward for the time being. Let me explain exactly what this means.
    • If you submit a moderator application, and we like it, we will save it for when we need more moderators.
    • We will still be looking at every application we get.
    • We are not automatically denying applications during this time period.
    • The normal 30 day time period in which you may submit another application still holds, but know that your first application may not have been denied, but we just do not need more moderators at the moment.
    Again, we will still fairly look over each application, but hopefully this helps everyone understand where we are right now with hiring staff members. Remember that you may not ask any staff member about the status of your application and that doing so will lower your chances of being accepted drastically.

    accepted*

    Unless you're making it an "exception" in the means of it being differed from the others, and moved apart.

    I chose the word "approved" because saying we are not accepting moderator applications would imply that we are not looking at them at all, which is not the case.

    Never got a response regarding mine. Not that I wanted one, I gave up on that. :p That's okay, though, it got me into actually checking my e-mail xD

    You will not be contacted via e-mail, you will be added on Skype by the Mineswine staff Skype account.

    And here I thought you guys were into Discord. Still, good to know!

    I'm going to check my e-mail now. Because it's now habit.

    9/10 times I will ask to move to either Discord or TeamSpeak for the interview, as the continuous voice on Skype can be quite annoying. We contact you through Skype because it is something that most people have.

    Thank you for the information. Let's hope we don't need any new staff members any time soon? Keep going good everyone.

    Needing more staff members means that the server has grown in playerbase, so needing new staff members isn't exactly something we are hoping won't happen.

    Hopefully we have GOOD staff members, we don't want corruption. That, or we don't want a toxic community. That's what I will miss the least about old Mineswine: the bitter hatred for the staff team.

    ^ This is what I meant by it. Hopefully you guys don't have to get rid of any staff members any time soon.

    If we did that and you didn't get accepted you might be really disappointed, which is why we don't
