Summary:

If you believe you have been unfairly punished, you can create a punishment appeal. Remember that using correct grammar, being polite and providing evidence to prove your innocence will result in you having a higher chance of getting unpunished. Please note that staff members may deal with appeals differently, and not everyone will follow a set of criteria - it's up to the staff member who punished you. If you were punished by a staff member who is no longer part of the staff team, a Senior Moderator or Administrator will take care of that appeal.

Also please note that a staff member will reply to your appeal as soon as possible. Staff members (excluding Administrators) have up to 3 days to reply to your appeal. Creating multiple appeals and spam replying to existing tickets will result in appeal privileges being revoked.

Ban Appeal Format:

What's your username?
Which staff member banned you?
What was the date of the ban?

What was the reason behind your ban?
Do you take responsibility for your actions?
Why should you be unbanned?

What does a Helper do?

Helper is the first achievable staff rank and is a trial to become a Moderator. Helpers will undergo tests by our Mentors and Review Team to assess their ability as a member of staff. This stage can last up to two months. As Helper, your main goal is to moderate in-game chat and assist users with any questions they may have. This should be done responsibly and in a mature way at all times. All members of the staff represent the staff team, this includes in-game, on the forums, Discord, and any other areas in which you may be of representation.

Additional Information:

All of the requirements must be met to be considered to become a staff member. If you do not meet these requirements, your application will be denied. Spamming Helper applications can result in a revoked access from submitting applications. A reply can be expected to your application within two weeks. All of the requirements will be confirmed by an Application Team member. Fake information will result in an automatic deny to your application, and your chances of getting accepted in the future will be gone. Asking someone to read your application will result in an instant deny. You are able to submit an application every 30 days.

Punishment Information:

If you have received punishments, you are required to wait some time before applying for staff. Below you can see how long you have to wait in order not to get instantly rejected. The times are counted from the date that the punishment was given.

Mutes:

  • Severity 1 Mute: 1 Month
  • Severity 2 Mute: 1 Month
  • Severity 3 Mute: 6 Months

Application Tips:

Be honest. If you lie in your application, then we will be unable to trust you as a staff member.
Be confident and be as detailed as to why you think you should be part of the staff team.

Use the forums actively. This helps the staff easily see that you interact and help others.
Don't apply just for the tag. Applying just for the staff tag will not end well.
Be active in-game. Our current staff are always on the lookout for good staff candidates.
Don't be shy! If your application is accepted, you are required to join a 'promotion call.'
Show us that you are 'Helper Material.' - actively helping in-game, forums and reporting players.
Provide enough detail in your application! If your application isn't detailed enough, you will be denied.
If your application gets denied for lack of detail, do not use the same application again!
Your actions represent you! Make sure you have a good reputation with the community.
Having staff experience is great! However, it's not the most important part of your application.
Be sure that you're ready. Being a member of staff takes a lot of time and learning.
Don't spam apply! If your application keeps getting rejected then something must be wrong.
If your application is denied, take on the advice given and improve on weak areas.
Don't ask your application to be read! That will result in an instant deny.
Be in good standing with the staff members.
If you don't meet the requirements, wait! All applications that don't meet our requirements are automatically denied!

Summary:

Hello guys, so you guys may have or may not have realised but I have completely re-vamped the server website, the last one, in my opinion did look at a little tacky and just wasn’t the most aesthetically appealing in my opinion. Fire, who some of you may not know is our systems administrator but he did also help edit a few things on the website to make things a lot better for you guys, so you should probably thank him.

Why did we change the website?
Apart from the reason I’ve mentioned above about the previous website not looking the best on the eye, there was also another big reason why I decided to change it, in my last servers that I’ve owned and just within Minecraft servers in general, there is a real lack of interaction on the website, people just tend to play on the server without even knowing that a server website exists. I really didn’t want that for DragonBlock, so for that reason I have spent a lot of time and money making sure that the website is perfect, making sure that it’s interactive (still to be worked on) and just making sure that there are no complications behind using it. I’m happy to say that we are about 80% of the way there, however there still is a lot to do, so if you feel like you could suggest ways to improve the website, feel free to give me a shout and I’ll see what I can do.
