You are judged more primarily on your in-game presence and knowledge, rather than a filled out application.
Here are a few general guidelines to help determine if you might be right for a position as a Mentor:
- You are willing to take short periods of time out of your server play to help new players.
- You have a solid grasp of SS13 mechanics. It is highly preferable if you know more advanced roles such as Medical or Engineering, without the need to do much wiki-referring.
- You play roughly a round every other day on average, at least. More is better.
- You are willing to be active on the staff Slack chat, and post regularly on the forums.
- Have a reasonably good recent note history. This is very case-by-case.
- You may not be a staff member at any other SS13 server when accepted, or become a staff member at another SS13 server during your tenure here.
- You do not need to be well-known to become a Mentor. A large number of Mentors that are accepted are often not well known (I am one of those cases myself)
- It is an easy staff position, with little to no stress.
- You will get to see how the rest of the team works in-depth before jumping in and later becoming a Mod, should you take that route. This will make a Moderator application much easier to make successfully.
- You will be directly helping the community in an important way.
