    My idea is that every month, everyone can vote anonymously as to who they think the best player is who isn't staff who is actually helping or trying to help people...whether that's by doing stuff or trying to get staff on etc....this way we get better staff on the server who actually want to help people....most staff who skip helper and go straight to mod or admin know other staff members and think "hey if he's staff i should be too" and they do it just to be staff....so they want the rank and the prefix...the best staff are usually helpers as they start from the bottom and actually want to help people...we need staff who actually want to help people and that can be bothered to help people when they are needed...which brings me to my second point....as well as voting for people to become staff, we also vote for people to no longer be staff....we vote for who we think has not done enough...if they have say over 25% of the votes, then they no longer are staff....they can be voted again to become staff but will start as helper.....and actually have to work their way up...this will separate those who want to help people and those who want the rank and prefix....

    I'm in a bit of a time crunch, and I know you want us staff members to acknowledge your posts, so I'll try to keep this as short as possible.

    Our procedure for choosing a new staff member does not happen overnight- we take into consideration how active a player is, what they do to stand out (can be something positive or negative), how they help others, how they act around others, and even more. Now, I know the server is understaffed at certain time periods, where zero to two staff members are on at most, but do please bear with us as we have things to do and life commitments that don't always allow us the time to play Minecraft. I hope you understand.

    This implies quite a bit- please do tell how we are unsatisfactory, it'd be a great help to us. (no sarcasm)

    Which are none of the staff team here- we all started from the bottom.

    As I stated before, please do tell us when these incidents do occur, where a staff member is ignorant. I am not being passive-aggressive or even giving sarcasm- this is a serious matter and we'd like to know when this happens. Even better, file a player report against the staff member of your choice when these incidents occur.

    Just a question out of curiosity, you don't need to answer this at all. Is there anyone here on the staff team that doesn't meet eye-to-eye with you? If so, how?

    Sorry for the length of these answers if they are too short.
    Cheers~

    On a side note, we don't ignore staff applications either. We actually do read them. Here's a screen capture I got of just the most recent staff apps. We take everyone into consideration, there is no bias. Any relation to staff members are not considered.

    i don't really want to publicly discuss the staff members that i think need to do more work on the server....also instead of making them staff they could just be looked at by other staff members to possibly become staff

    I see what you're saying, @Wobbz, and I really don't need to say much because of @pokeball92870's post, but they really do take time to evaluate the applications. They scrutinize it and examine every single pixel. Okay, not really, but you see what I'm getting at.

    And I agree that sometimes staff can slack off, but they're not our slaves. They're human beings just like you and me and they get tired sometimes. I mean, I haven't been on for like a week because of home issues. No one has said anything, but I'm not staff if I were staff, staff such as @pokeball92870 , then people would be freaking out. He's really important to the server, and even if he wasn't staff, people would still like to know where he was because he's awesome and helpful. Also, I don't really understand what you meant when you said "also instead of making them staff they could just be looked at by other staff members to possibly become staff", because that is what they do. Not all applications are accepted. To be honest, most of them aren't. (I think.)

    i mean they wouldnt need to do a staff application to have staff then think "oh i like their application they might be good staff" they think of them for staff before they even do a staff application this way
