    Network Ranks

    Palace Network Ranks This guide has been designed to give an insight into all the different ranks, both Guests and Staff, here on Palace Network. To find out how to become a Staff Member, head over HERE . Staff Ranks Manager The Manager rank is the highest rank on the Network and they run the Administration Team. They ultimately oversee the day to day running of the server and with help from the Administrators make the final decisions on important server matters. Administrator Administrators are the heads of the community. Administrators are responsible for every major aspect of the community and they each have specific jobs. Some of our current Admin positions include: Parks Admin Community Manager Show & Tech Admin Creative & Seasonal Web Administration Guest Relations Administrators often commission staff to help them with various projects and are promoted from the current pool of Senior Moderators. Developer The Developers are responsible for every single aspect of the server plugins, making all servers work properly, adding new features, and addressing bugs that are reported. They are responsible for keeping the servers playable. A common misconception with Developers is that they create rides, shows and build aspects of the parks. This is not true and is actually done by our build team of Moderators and Senior Moderators. Senior Moderators Senior Moderators oversee specific aspects of the community and are directed by Administrators. They often work behind the scenes leading a small team of Moderators. Senior Moderators also assist the Administrators with anything needed and sometimes can act as a crucial link between Moderators and Administrators. Senior Moderators are hired from within the current staff team. They are promoted for their hard work, dedication, and trustworthiness. They frequently act as the go-to's for various projects and often take leadership roles within the staff team. Senior Moderator roles can include: Characters Events Parks Shows Forums and much more! Moderators Moderators form the backbone of the Staff Team. Their responsibilities including making sure Guests follow the rules and punishing those who don’t accordingly. They're also responsible for forum moderation and are expected to be role models and provide an enjoyable experience for players. Moderators can also take on secondary roles from their primary Guest Relations role, these can be builders, ride and show technicians, or working in our Character Attendant team. Moderators are promoted from our Trainee Staff pool. Trainees Trainees are the most junior rank within the Staff Team. They are promoted from successful applicants who have completed the Staff Application Process. Trainees are expected to also moderate and assist with any questions players may have. Small problems are usually dealt with by Trainees, however, if a major problem arises, they can contact higher staff such as a Moderator. Donator Ranks To purchase a donator rank, you may do so at store.palace.network. Full descriptions of rank perks are listed there. Honorable Honorable is the rank upgraded from Majestic. It is the top rank you can purchase from the store. Majestic Majestic is the rank upgraded from Noble. It comes with some pretty cool features! Noble Noble is the upgraded rank from Dweller and is the first rank that allows you to view new expansions to the parks before anyone else! Dweller Dweller is the first rank upgraded from the normal Settler rank and gives you DVC Seating in all Shows and Parades! Guest Ranks Settler This rank is achieved by joining the server and gives you access to all the parks that are open, with the exception of current expansions being built. It also gives you access to Creative!
  2. Trainee Application - Frequently Asked Questions This guide aims to answer all the questions that you may have about applying for Staff. It does not include tips in writing your application. That information is in the guide found HERE . If you're looking for a Guide to Ranks, click HERE . What is a Trainee? A Trainee on the server is a Staff Member in training. Their role is to help and assist players by answering questions, explaining how to use the server. and acting as a rule enforcer where needed. They are also learning the role of a Moderator and demonstrating they have what is takes to become a member of the Palace Network Staff Team. What are the requirements to apply for Trainee? You must be at least 13 years old. You must have access to Discord and a working microphone. You must be able to commit a minimum of 5 hours a week to the server. You must not be staff on any other server or network. How do I become a Trainee? Head over to the Open Applications section of the forums, HERE. Fill out your application and wait for a response from a member of Management. If your application is accepted, attend a short interview on Discord with a Manager. If your interview goes well you'll be invited to join the Staff Team as a Trainee. Once you're invited to join the Staff Team, you'll be required to attend a Staff Orientation Session before you are promoted. More information on this will be provided if your application is accepted. How do I apply for Moderator? You cannot apply directly for Moderator. Moderators are promoted from the Trainee pool once all training sessions have been completed and the Trainee has shown they have the ability to become a Moderator. Once accepted for Trainee, will I automatically be promoted to Moderator after a set period of time? Once accepted, trained, and given the Trainee tag, your work ethic and activity will be evaluated by server Admins and Managers. Feedback will be provided if the regulations talked about in Orientation Training aren't being followed or if server activity isn't sufficient. If feedback isn't being taken by a Trainee in order to improve, they will either remain a Trainee longer than the rest of their onboarding group or may be returned to their guest rank and asked to apply again in the future. How do I apply for Administrator? The short answer is you can't. Administrators are promoted from our pool of Senior Moderators. How do I apply for Developer? Currently, you cannot apply for Developer. What happens after I post an application? How long does it take to get a response? Once you have submitted your application it will be reviewed once the application period closes. It can take around 7 days to get a response after that date because of the large number of applications we receive in a single application period. All we ask is that you're patient and do not ask Staff Members to review your application or it may be denied! Does it matter how many times I have applied and been denied? You are free to apply as many times as you like, however, we recommend reading through our tips and advice guide, HERE . If denied, can I reach out to a Staff Member to find out why? Again, due to the large number of applicants, our Administration and Management teams do not have the time or ability to answer questions from all denied players. Our advice to improve your application can be found HERE . I have been banned/muted before, will that hurt my chances of becoming a Trainee? Your reputation on the server can have an impact on your application. As a Trainee, you are in a position of authority, and we expect our potential Staff Members to be setting a good example to fellow Guests and junior Staff Members. Having said this, we do not instantly deny an application for being banned, muted, kicked, or warned as long as you can show us you have matured since then. Why was my application denied? There are many reasons an application may be denied. One of the first things that we look at when viewing an application is the amount of time you spend on the server and discord as well as how much you talk and help guests in our chat. Because one of the huge portions of the Moderator position is keeping chat safe, demonstrating that you've already taken steps to help keep chat and Discord safe as a guest is a huge plus. Other reasons for denial include but are not limited to: using improper grammar/punctuation in the application, previous history of server punishments, or just plain lack of effort and interest shown for the position. Do you have any tips for applying? Our useful tips and advice guide can be found, HERE .
  3. Trainee Application - Writing Guide If you have general questions about the application process please check out our FAQ thread HERE . What do we look for in an application? Your application needs to show us you have what it takes to be a Staff Member here on Palace Network. The applications we love to read are those that show personality and maturity, especially those that use real-life experiences to indicate why they are best to become a Staff Member. Does presentation count? Even though we use a form system rather than a forum template, the presentation is massive and it shows us you've taken the time and effort to submit an application. By presentation we mean the following: Paragraphs are well laid out Correct grammar and punctuation You show maturity in your choice of wording Creative writing techniques to express your personality And above all making sure your paragraphs make sense. Give detail on how you are the person for the role of Trainee It's important for us as a reader to get to know you within your application. If you use real-life examples, i.e. I did this or I've done that, make sure you explain why this would help you as a Staff Member and why it will benefit you. Make sure you give some examples to show that you have developed certain skills; explain why your experiences demonstrate you are right for a Staff Member role. Make your application unique to you Your application should reflect you and who you are. We get hundreds of applications during each application period and it's surprising how many of them are very similar. We know that you all have skills, experiences and personality traits that make you unique and we want to see those reflected in your application. Make sure you read through your answers and ask yourself, does my answer reflect who I am? Be honest Don’t hide any infractions you may have on the server. We background check all applicants, and if you lie on your application, it will lead to instant denial. As mentioned in the FAQ thread, we do not instantly deny you for having previous infractions if you can show that you have matured since then. Above all, make sure it's a true representation of yourself and not just something we want to hear. Its clear to us when you write things that aren't true.
