    If you're having trouble making your application, then here are some ideas that you should take into consideration.

    >Make it Lengthy- Staff members love reading applications that you have invested your time into

    >Use colorful words- Big fancy words like, Jubilant, ecstatic, and facetious, will impress staff and it shows them that you are mature and knowledgeable.

    >Give compliments to the server and existing staff- Everyone loves to be flattered and complimented.

    >Give examples- Show the staff that you know what you are talking about.

    >Make it unique- The staff gets bored ready the same thing every time someone posts an application. Show your uniqueness and spice it up a bit. Put your own special touch into your application.

    >Be upbeat and excited- Show the staff the you are ready to take on the challenge of being staff. Show them that you are excited to get started and that you want to be their.


    All of these examples on how to write a good application will not only impress the staff, but will increase your chances of getting staff. I look forward to seeing how you put this helpful advice to use.

    Moved to Unofficial Guides; Staff Recruitment is for applications, not guides.

    He already did and was denied due to incorrect format/no teamspeak.

    I really only have to disagree with the first one. 1. I recommend not making your application long and boring. Show us that you know how to make things to the point, while still showing a decent amount of effort. Being too long and repeating the same stuff over and over again is just as bad as writing almost nothing at all. Just write what you want to write and as well as you can.
    Length =/= quality. :)

    Other than that, the points are fine. :)

    "Use big fancy words"
    I don't want you using big words you can't handle. You're going to end up using them in the wrong context and looking stupid because the people on Urban dictionary wrote your application.

    I strongly disagree with what I bolded. You don't want to do that. That's like sucking up to staff, and it will get you nowhere. Other than that, nice guide.

    It's a nice guide, Just a couple things I find otherwise are:
    I like reading staff apps, and seeing what people would do as staff. But when it's too long my attention span may start to lose off. Length is good, but not repetition.

    Sucking up isn't really effective, but a compliment is always enjoyed (sometimes a staff app isn't the best place for it though)

    One important unspoken rule (in my opinion) is to be yourself. If you have to google vocabulary out of your reach, I think that's fine, but it's not really you talking.
