  1. Hello everyone!

    As you may know, there are constantly changes being made to the staff application process. The applications team has decided to post this thread as a central hub for all information regarding changes in staff applications. Any information regarding updates in the application format, Jr Helpers or any other information will be posted here.

    If you’re interested in applying for staff, please make sure to watch this thread as we will be posting updates whenever necessary.

    If you have any questions about the staff team or the applications process, please check THIS thread. If your question is not answered there, feel free to reply to the thread and someone will answer soon.

    Thanks!

    Special thanks to @Didag for helping to put this together

  2. Hey guys! So we know loads of you have been asking about the status of Jr Helper so we thought we would give you an update!

    We have decided that there will be no Jr Helpers this summer. With the promotion of many new moderators and the departure of Kevinkool from our team, we are currently in a state of transition. Due to this, we feel it would be unfair on both the staff team and players on the server, to host such a huge project before we have all had time to adjust to this change.

    I hope you respect our decision. I know for a lot of you this will be disappointing news, however this doesn’t mean that we will never consider Jr Helpers again.

    If you have any questions please feel free to message Didag or I or post on the FAQ thread HERE

    This is just a reminder that applicants must wait a full month before reapplying for Helper. You may reapply once a month has passed from your latest application; not from the time of your denial message. If you apply before a full month has passed, your application will be immediately denied and you will need to wait another full month before reapplying.

  4. New addition to our team

    Firstly, some sad news @Fontz has decided to step down from the application team as he is currently very busy with school. (Don't worry he will still be a moderator). I would like to personally thank Fontz for all the hardwork he put in when he was on our team. He came at a time when we really needed an extra person to help and jumped straight in with his positive attitude!

    On a brighter note we have a new addition to our team, @Vynox is going to be joining us! He will be helping review and respond to applications, and of course to answer all the messages that come with the role ;)
    He is still very new to the team, so please be polite and support him as he takes in all this new information! We know he will be great!

  5. Exciting news! - New application structure

    We've just done a major update and revision to the Helper application guides, FAQ's and most importantly the Application format. This has been done with the intention of making the application system a lot more accessible and less confusing.

    The new application format will give applicants much more of an opportunity to show their personality, skills and experiences. The new application guides are a lot more detailed than previously and will provide a clearer insight into applying.

    New application format found HERE
    New application FAQ found HERE
    New application writing guide found HERE

    We hope you'll find these new guides helpful. Good luck to those applying in future, we're excited to see your new applications!


    Note For Recent Applicants Awaiting Response
    If you've already applied recently using the old application, you don't need to worry about updating your application to the new format. Your existing pending application will be reviewed as normal. If you're applying or reapplying now however you should be using the new format going forwards.

  6. Helper application process - Further explanation

    The goal of this post is to give you a bit more information about how our process works. This information should help to set realistic expectations when applying.


    Our helper application process works in waves, which means that we promote a few Helpers all at one time. This enables us to be more prepared for the new Helpers, which was previously more difficult to do when we brought on Helpers one by one

    This does mean that if you apply and are accepted initially, you will most likely be in the wave after the one we are currently working on. So we first have to finish the process for the current wave and then start the process of your wave. You should take this into account in order to set realistic expectations of when you will receive a response from the Application team members. Finishing the process for one wave is not something that will happen in a few days. Thus it will take a few weeks at minimum, after initial acceptance to be contacted again. We know a lot of you will want an exact time frame but this isn’t something we can give. It will depend on the size of the wave, the ebbs and flows of the server and the schedules of the Application team members.

    We are aware that some applicants can get quite nervous whilst awaiting our response, however what we can guarantee is that we will never forget about any applicant who was initially accepted. If we have told you that you will receive a response from us, then you will. We know it can be a long time to wait sometimes, but there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes for one Helper wave, and we will contact you as soon as we possibly can!

    NOTE: This message is directed at applicants whose applications are accepted initially. It is not directed at those that are awaiting a response to their applications, that is still at maximum a 7 day wait.

  7. New addition to our team
    Unfortunately @lilablassblue has decided to step down as a moderator, and so will no longer be a member of the applications team. I want to thank her personally for everything she contributed to our team, from her friendly nature to her determination to always help out any team member who needed it! She will be missed, but we wish her the best for the future :)
    If you have any outstanding conversations with lilablassblue about applications you can direct them to myself or another applications team member.


    Luckily, @Don_rosa has agreed to become our newest application team member! She will be helping to read and review applications, and assist in all the background work that comes with it. We are very excited to have her on our team, and we hope you will give her a warm welcome! Please do be patient with her as she learns the ropes, but we know she'll do great!

  8. Small application question tweak

    Question number 7 in the Helper application has been changed from:

    7) Tell us about a time you made a mistake? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?
    to
    7) Tell us about a time you made a mistake within the last year? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?

    We have found that applicants tend to write about a mistake from a long time ago (e.g. 8-10 years ago). Whilst we appreciate that you will have learnt a lot from it, we would prefer to hear about more recent experiences and how you have handled them in this particular question.

    NOTE: If you have already posted your application you do not need to edit it, this will only be applied to applications posted from this point going forward.

  14. Application team update
    As some applicants may be aware @Quiverbow , @SourMatt and @Outbreak have stepped down as moderators and therefore will no longer be members of the applications team. We are so grateful for all of the work that both Matt, Outbreak and Quiver did behind the scenes whilst they were on the team. They were both very creative, positive and always willing to help out wherever they could. We will certainly miss them, but excited for what their future holds!

    NOTE: For those applicants who have open conversations with either sourmatt or outbreak, please post any further questions or comments in a new conversation with another member of the applications team.

  16. Applications Re-opened
    We are pleased to announce that applications have now officially re-opened following the Holiday period. We are looking forward to the year ahead and getting to know all of you new potential Helpers!

    Note: We know many of you will be excited to be able to apply again, but please ensure you don't rush your application. Take the time you need to write an application that reflects the best of you!

    New addition to the team
    As many of you will have noticed, @TechnoMaster4 has decided to step down from the moderator position and therefore the applications team. We appreciate the time he spent helping us on the team, and the enthusiasm he showed for every applicant!

    On a brighter note, @DiamondKiwi is going to be joining the team. He will be working alongside the other apps moderators to review your applications, help to give feedback and answer any questions that you have! Please join us in welcoming him to the team!

  17. Application team update
    One of our moderators @Didag has stepped down from the moderator position, and therefore is no longer a member of the applications team. Didag had been part of the applications team for around 4 years, and contributed an enormous amount to the team and the process. Not only did he review thousands of applications, messages, and other background work. He also helped a great deal in shaping the application into what you see today! We really appreciate the time he spent with us, and we hope you will all join us in wishing him the best for the future.

    Fortunately @TechnoMaster4 has rejoined us on the team after his short break and has already been diving back in to review your applications and give feedback in conversations!

  18. Team changes
    As some of you may have noticed we've had a bit of a bigger change in the team members of the applications team. @TechnoMaster4 and @DiamondKiwi have stepped down from the team, we are very grateful for their positivity, hard work and passion in helping us review thousands of applications over the time they spent with us!

    Alongside this we have three new members @Sambish , @Cera and @SamiWuvsChu who have already jumped in and started helping review your applications. We're glad to have them as part of the team, and excited to see them continue to give feedback and answer any questions you may have!

  19. Will the teamspeak requirement for staff applications be changed now?
    After the announcement HERE that we will no longer be hosting a public teamspeak for the Hypixel server we have had a lot of you enquiring as to whether the requirement for Helper will change. The answer is no, whilst we will not be hosting a public teamspeak for the Hypixel server due to issues we've faced with the recent update. We will still continue to privately use teamspeak souly for the staff purposes outlined HERE for now, should this change an update will be provided in this post. Further information will be given to any applicant who reaches the stage where ts is needed.

  20. Applications Update
    In 2019 we had a big increase in the number of people interested in taking on the Helper position, which was really great to see! As a team we enjoy getting to know each applicant, learning about your skills, experiences and passion for the Hypixel Network. Throughout the last year the applications team has also gone through a lot of changes with its members, some of whom stepped down, took breaks and others joined us. Most recent of which are Cera who has stepped down from the Moderator position, and Bembo who has stepped down to focus solely on his customer support position.

    What this has meant is that we have seen a big increase in the number of applications that we received and the number that we initially accepted. Currently we have a signficant chunk of applicants that are in our reviewing stages that we are working through. Therefore we have made the decision to keep the applications section closed until the 10th February 2020 so that we can process, review and respond to all of the applicants that are currently in our reviewing stages.

    If your application is currently in our review stage you can expect to receive a response within the next few weeks, and if you have any questions/concerns about this please reach out to one of the applications team via a message on the forums.
