    I am considering applying for staff and would like opinions... Whatever you would like to say is fine, even if it's something negative about me.

    If it's something you are really interested in then I say give it a shot but ensure you have spare free-time before you do it and are willing to have patience. However I've personally seen you post many sarcastic/mean or inappropriate things on these forums (especially in civil threads) so that would be something you would need to stop if you're actually serious about applying. Other than that, best of luck.

    It's up to you honestly. You have to think about whether or not you want this and if you can do it. If you think you can set aside however many minutes or hours you can to help out on the server without disrupting your actual life, then it doesn't hurt to try

    I keep myself to around two hours on my computer everyday, and I can consistently keep that

    I agree with Smg and I believe you said you speak Russian which would be very useful.
    I would suggest decreasing the attitude that's slightly toxic imo before applying.
    Otherwise good luck!

    Then it's a matter of whether you want to be staff and if you think you'd do a good job. Can you keep your cool with angry players? How is your attitude? Are you unbiased when it comes to your friends or even people you don't like? Are you able to work well in a team? (don't actually answer these questions here lel just consider them)

    Yeah, my attitude is definitely something I have developed from playing kitpvp for a year, but I know I could fix it as I wasn't like that before and it's been something I've noticed and been trying to fix for about a month.

    I 100% want to be staff

    And I can speak Russian a tad bit because I've spent 12 months of my life in Russia, I just can't read it lol

    You do know applying for staff isn't just a 24hour wait...? It could be a month or even a year! You may lose interest by then. Make sure to think about it hard. Are you sure? Do you think you are right you should be Helper? Do you have good public skills?

    First fix your attitude. Ever since you joined you've been mean, cynical, sarcastic and generally annoying. Staff members are not supposed to behave like that. I'm not trying to insult you, I'm just being honest because you asked for opinions.

    I'm not saying don't do it. I definitely think you can and should apply if you can devote your time to it and if you are willing to do it right.

    Good luck :)

    The other day you called the ACDC song I played in Discord "gay". If you are going to apply for staff, I highly recommend fixing your attitude and wait until people recognize that you have changed. Staff represents the server, a toxic staff member can give someone the wrong impression. If you are applying for staff, I recommend keeping it private and only telling some close friends on the server and not making it this large public thing. I have seen you talking about applying for staff publicly for a while now. Anyways, good luck.

    In my opinion, if you have to ask the public's opinion on whether you should be staff or not then you aren't ready. The past few days talking to you has actually been pleasant, so I'd say you're pretty close to being ready. I think if you take a step back and see how you act and react towards people you'll see what needs to be tweaked.

    Don’t do what I did, if you’re not ready it’s blatant. You’re not going to make the cut if you’re warned every month, and have been caught with serious attitude.

    I was demoted for attitude, but there are different attitudes. Be careful, and good luck.

    Staff is an experience for people that can handle pressure, stress and hatred at times. Just don’t feel as if you’re being forced to fake a smile, if you get what I mean. Not everyone is meant for the job.

    I did this publicly because I wanted to know what I was getting into, and that's what I've gotten from it, so thank you all.

    if I were you, i wouldn't apply for staff. It makes you feel like you owe something to the server, which you don't. You feel like you always have to be online and it distracts you from some more important irl things such as school. it has nothing to do with you, it's just a large commitment.

    My opinion is go for it, but like everyone else said work on your attitude lol. To be honest you are very toxic to some people on kit :P including me.

    Edit: WHAT, DRAGGON RESIGNED?!??!! THIS IS B.S

    Hi.

    I know I'm going to sound a little cliché at this point but I have noticed you have a sudden aggression towards other players, more specifically on the forums. If you don't like a thread, please don't get involved in it; I know I'm going to sound a little tedious but you commented on my thread with a very aggressive response.

    Don't worry. I can relate to you, I had a very aggressive attitude towards other players back in late 2015, I was very young. A little bit of patience, perspective, and time are the best things you can do to clean up your attitude.

    I wish you the best of luck when you think "Alright, I'm going to give my best shot at becoming staff!"

    Regards,
