In light of a recent up-swing in the amount of Staff applications we have been getting, we decided to institute some new prerequisites for players requesting to be Staff. This is to assert our philosophy that being Staff is a somewhat more serious position than you may find on other servers, and that any random player with a hint of hope to becoming Staff will understand what they needs to do first.
Here are the requirements for even applying to become Staff:
-60 Days of Forum Age. This means that your account on the Forums is 60 days old (at least).
-18 Years of Real-Life Age. This means that you have been living for at least 18 years. We are essentially revoking the "under-18 exception" rule, as every single player we run in to abuses this exception and goes on to say "I am mature for my age", or, "Age isn't important."
Obviously, other things play in to actually becoming Staff. See this thread for more information on that topic: http://minerealm.com/c/v/12107
