I want very much to be a staff member.











How?

For the most part asking will defiantly not get you on staff and besides that you need to show dedication to the site the ability to follow rules not cause trouble and if the staff likes you and have a position you'd fit they'll contact you.
if you are very good on a specific area, public recognize your work and you don't make dumb threads you have some chance to be a staff member.

Why do you want to be a staff member anyway? You do understand that it is a lot of hard work, right? From what I've heard (someone on the IRC said it), most people who become staff members after a long time of wanting it end up hating it and quit soon after because it's not as fun as it works, and from what I've seen when I was doing my old timeline, they're right.

Supposedly asking to be staff will not hurt your chances of becoming staff, but it's frowned upon to just ask for it without giving any reasons for it because then it looks to others like you just want it for the powers, and I've seen people like this all the time.

I don't know any of this for certain though because I'm not a mod myself, but that's basically what's been said time and time again because you're not the first person to have made a thread asking about this. #ab{>_>}

you do not want to be a staff member. you just want to have power, or you just want the fame that comes with being a staff member. once the novelty wears off, you realize that you actually need to do your duties as a staff member in order to remain one (even moreso now that basedvayne has stepped up his game). basically the whole "with great power comes great responsibility"

this is coming from someone who has technically been staff twice
lightvayne pls gimme staff again

Yeah, I mean it's not like we keep a list of everyone who's ever mentioned wanting to become staff or anything. Asking something like this thread is fine (although PR forum isn't the best fit), but begging and pleading through PMs or something is annoying and may lead to you being passed over in favor of someone else who seems more mature.

Being staff is good and bad. You get power and that's cool, but you also have responsibility. People will come to you with questions and you have to be able to handle various situations that will be thrust upon you. Plus if you're a section mod (as most staff are) you have to pull your weight with section moderation or you may find yourself booted.

But yeah, basically just be a good and helpful person, and you will be contacted if we need a new staff member and think you're a good fit.
I want to be staff for the sole purpose of writing the titles on brownbanned users with witty insults just like the old days.


Or I can just work as a float and do a bit of everything upon request.

The real question should be:

How can I become worldpeace?
Yeah, I just want to be famous like Vitor Vilela (or VIRUS VILELA).

But now I'm a beta tester... I think that I'll be famous playing hacks.

I'm probably just repeating what nearly everyone else has said on here already, but simply asking to be on the staff will get you nowhere. One must either work towards it as a goal, or just show that you are making positive contributions to the site. Be it by, of course, submitting things which help out the site, or, by just following the rules.

... I guess in some ways, what I just said works for many walks in life.
You should check the posting date on older posts seeing as it's been roughly 8 months since the last post.
