Welcome to the Crusadecraft staff page. Here you will find all you need to know about what we, as a staff team, stand for and how we continiously work to provide a fun and immersive roleplay experience for you! The player.
There are various ways you can contact us: through our contact module, by sending a staff member a private message (scroll down for a list of all staff members), or you could contact a staff member ingame. You may contact us for various reasons like:
Posing a question about the server and it's development;
Planning a warclaim (sieges, battles, raids, etc.);
Requestion guidance regarding any service related to our server;
We, as a staff team, follow a couple of specific guidelines part of a revolutionary doctrine that sets crusadecraft apart as a professional minecraft server. We firmly believe in the necessity of being an unbiased and open-minded staff team whilst we continously strive to keep close contact with the community. To give you a more tangible example on how we aim to achieve this, here are some of our most important guidelines that we strive to uphold:
In order to prevent conflict of interestes, staff members are prohibited from holding roleplay roles which give them executive power (e.g. nation leader, town leader, military commander, etc.). Minor influential positions however are allowed to be filled (e.g. cleric, advisor, footsoldier, etc.). Exceptions to this guideline may be made under extraordinary conditions that require staff intervention.
To uphold the image of a just and unbiased staff team we are totally commited to maintaining a coprehensible line of communication between us and the community. This means that any significant action we take that will affect the server will be communicated properly towards our players. Within our staff team we known the value of clear communication, and apply this knowledge internally.
For more of our guidelines and policies, check out this thread.
If you are willing to take up the task of becoming a commited member of our staff team, you can fill out the trial moderator application.
After you have filled out and submitted your application you will be a part of a pool of potential trial moderator recruits from which we promote people when there is a demand for more moderators. So take note that your application will be reviewed, but not accepted instantly. Rather you will only be accepted as trial moderator when we see fit to expand our staff team.
In case you do get accepted you will be subjected to a global moderator who will supervise and train you in being a proper moderator for a course of two weeks. After this "trial period" of two weeks global moderators will vote on your future as afulltime moderator. If the vote is a tie or disputes occur within the staff team, higher ranked staff members will step in to take charge and decide upon the matter. The possible outcomes of this vote may be:
Your promotion to moderator;
A non-repeatable extension of the trial period by two weeks. After which another vote will occur;
Being demoted to a casual player again. After which you can reapply when a period of four weeks has passed.
To function as a professional staff team, we have designed an effective semi-democratic system. The system allows for higher ranked staff members to take direct control in cases of emergency and properly lead the staff team, whilst granting our lower ranked members a much needed autonomy of conduct. Furthermore our system allows for a continous unimpeded flow of ideas and communication through the ranks. Below you will find an in-depth description of how each rank functions in relation to others. Visual support is provided to improve your understanding of our system.
