    Staff Hunting

 

 

I'm just going to make this post because I've noticed a huge increase in the amount of players that have been yelling out - "Pm me staff for help....." and other yells that staff do. Although, I appreciate you offering help to people over yell it's not giving you anymore of a chance to get staff then the next person. I will sit on my alt for hours actually playing the server and the majority of you aren't offering help or helping in the CC but right when I log onto Dj the first thing I see is 4 people yelling the same message. If anything, things like that just make your chances worse. 

 

   If you genuinely want a better chance at staff, make a good impression. The last 2/3 staff members I picked didn't even have a staff application. They were offered the position because anytime they were on, I could almost always expect them to answer a question in "help" cc within seconds.

 

 

Thanks for reading,


D J

Don't know how they can be annoying if they are in fact trying to help people, but if it's just Staff hunting then yeah it may be annoying if the guy spams it.

There is only one person I can think of who does those kinds of yells while DJ is not online if that tells you anything. Of course I'm going to keep that person unnamed.

I get what you're saying, BUT due to the timezone differences You're RARELY on in the mornings my time when there are others Actively helping in cc and ingame.
Fuo and Myself have been covering a lot of times when NO staff are online.
we've discussed this and are not sure if you are even aware of this. GMT mornings 8-11am.

 

 

In the evenings when you guys are on we take the time to concentrate on our accounts.

Always happy to help whenever you're in need of it.

But its a little depressing knowing our efforts aren't being realized as there is no one to witness it.

 

This morning alone on a Saturday there were no staff between 9:30 gmt and 10:50gmt (for example)

 

Glad you're taking the time to be the undercover boss though. The best way to do it. :) Thanks - I R O N Y

Hi,

I just wanted to say that Dj is not the only one looking for helpful people, we do notice everyone, not only the people in Dj or Aj's timezone. I'm in the Central European timezone and I'm usually online in the morning. This weekend was an exception, since I was not home this weekend. Fact still remains that the moment Dj logs in, I notice a lot more ''staff-hunters''. The yells are helpful, but I think the point Dj is trying to make here is that yelling ''Need help...'' does not increase your chance of becoming a staff member and it's not really necessary. If you are meant to be a staff member, you will become a staff member eventually.

This should honestly be a rule. When I'm logged in there's not a 10 minute period where people aren't doing some sort of copy/paste of what they see staff saying/yelling, or repeating server announcements.

This is honestly the most annoying part, it's the fact that they're not copy and pasting that makes it worse. Here is my yell

 

::yell Need help? PM ::Staff or do ::Help if you need us right away!

 

People change it to

 

::yell Need help? PM me or do ::Help

 

They're not trying to help us they're actively trying to get people to PM them in order to get what they think is a better chance at staff. Very frustrating.

In my opinion, staff should be taken by application and long time loyalty.
Hunting for gettig staff is stupid and should be handled as an offence
