What's up everyone! Applications are open again!
Bringing in new people for when we transfer to 1.3 and start on a brand new map! Acceptance E-Mails will be sent out a few days after we get up and running on 1.3 (expected August 30th)!
- Special Condition -
No you don't have to donate to get entry
If you donate $50 or more towards the server you'll be granted an automatic spot. This price may seem steep, but the matter of the fact is - if I make it too low, then everyone will donate to get in. At this price, a person has to think about the amount and won't just toss it around so easily. This will, for lack of a better term, weed out the people just trying to gain access and troll. This donation will also count towards your rank once on the server.
This 'buy your way in' type of situation has been asked by a lot of people if we were ever going to do it again. So I'm doing a trial run this time around to see how it works - if it goes well I may leave this in as an option for server applications. Even if we get a troll or two that come in - they'll get banned immediately and forever lose their chance to be on the server and wasted $50. Simple as that.
You can donate via the page above that says "donate" or here:
Writing out your Application:
First and foremost, one word answers will never get you into the server. Spend more than a minute on your application, it's not "First come first serve" In fact there has been a lot of times the first few hundred applications without finding a single one we liked. So put some personality in your application! Also, on the reverse side of things, writing out a 10 paragraph essay is not needed either. Our eyes get tired after reading thousands of these, and long applications will more than likely be skipped or skimmed. Try to keep it around 2-3 sentences per question, that's a great place to be at.
Don't mention how much you love our content! :P That's not what this application is about, show your love for us on our videos. This is an application about YOU, and only about you. You need to convince us that you're awesome (note: Do not say 'IM AWESOME' that got old after the first 50 times). Also do not send us pictures of your past builds, we're concentrating on building a great community, not great builds. Another thing, if you can't donate do not put "sorry can't" on each thing about donations. Just leave those blank.
Also, multiple applications do not increase your chances to get in, infact it will void all your applications. If you've submitted one the last time around it's perfectly ok to apply again, just ONE application though haha.
To sum it up; be yourself and you'll be fine.
More info on Pre-Donations:
The biggest thing you need to remember is that if you're going to donate with your application is to make sure you put your E-Mail you used in your application. The next biggest is to PUT YOUR IN-GAME NAME IN THE NOTES OF THE DONATION. Failure to do this, and your donation will go ignored. This is because I can't figure out who the donation came from, if you forget any of this during your donation, PM me on the forums (Potato) with the amount, and your IGN. I cannot stress this enough; it takes just an extra second to write it, and it saves you money.
Your Pre-Donations will count towards your rank if you get chosen. So if you donate $30, that money will count towards your rank once on the server; consider it a boost right from the start! Even though donating before hand will not gaurantee your entry into the server, bigger donations definitely get more notice than small ones. If you're dedicated enough to donate a lot of money before even getting in, that says a lot about your character. We love dedicated people, because without them our server wouldn't have lasted a year. Dedication keeps us alive, and never goes unrewarded.
Although we do appreciate all donations towards the server, regardless of amount, we would appreciate it if you would refrain from donating anything under $5 USD. We tend to get flooded with a bunch of people donating under $1 and well... 63 cents just seems like you're giving us your pocket change for the fact we say "donations help your application get noticed."
If you can't donate because of age/employment that's COMPLETELY ok, honestly. We have a lot more people on our server whom can't donate compared to those who can. We understand this and that's why it's a DONATION, not a subscription. <3
When will E-Mails be sent out:
First off, we will NOT be sending out E-Mails letting you know you didn't get in. We only send out accepted E-Mails. However, to help everyone know I have always made a video letting everyone know when we have sent out the E-Mails. So once you see this video, and you didn't recieve an E-Mail, I wish you better luck next time.
We usually run applications for about 5-7 days. And Send out accepted E-Mails a week after we open them. The only time we close applications early is if we see a huge increase in numbers. Since we can't spare a lot of time to read applications but we'll try to keep them open for 5-7 days.
Important things to remember before applying:
If you cannot accept rejection, do not apply. Every application round we get a few people complaining they didn't get chosen. We've had to reject people who have submitted great applications before, because of space. We only accept 20-30 people each time we do this, which means not everyone is going to get in. If we have 3000 applications, and only accept 30 people, that's what, like 1% or .1%? Somewhere around there. It's a low chance, which means you should be prepared to be rejected.
It's nothing against you, it's just math; and sometimes math sucks.
That's about it, I truely appreciate you reading through this and you can go apply now knowing you have a better chance compared to others.
Now go on over to the registration form and go for it!
