I possibly plan on becoming a staff in the future, so I decided to look at the requirements and tips and so on. Looking in the requirements section, I saw "at least 20 forum posts," and I dont feel like this makes too much sense. It starts to make more sense if you plan on becoming a moderator or admin and so forth, but for something as simple as a helper (something I wish to be) it doesn't feel necessary. It also could be because I'm new here and just don't understand yet. Thanks for reading! ;)

Hello,

Friendly reminder, don't forget to post your suggestion here: https://suggestions.manacube.com/

I understand where you're coming from, but all staff should be involved with the community, and the forums are a good opportunity for staff to interact with everyone from the community. <3

Thank you for expressing your opinion on this, however I don’t believe this is likely to change in the near future at least.

The main reasons we like seeing applicants active on the forums (as @Anxii_ mentioned), is so we can see how the person interacts with other members of the community. As stated in the requirements, in some cases we do accept applicants who have less than 20 forums posts, but those reasons do vary. Ideally we’d like applicants to attempt to meet - or better yet, exceed - the set requirements.

As ManaCube staff, we look for activity on all platforms no matter the role. Forums activity is just as important as in-game activity in my opinion, as there are members of the community who come here to share their opinions, report issues, ask/answer questions, and get to know/interact with other players. I understand that to some people 20 posts is a lot, especially if there’s not a lot of threads you can comment on daily, but in my opinion, it shows great patience and willingness for someone to try to achieve this, whether they’re applying for staff or not.

Members of the forums deserve just as much help and attention as members on any other platform within ManaCube. Plus, the forums is probably my personal favourite place! ;)

Yeah, I've started to understand as much by now, I was just baffled that you needed to be active on the forums of all things. Maybe I just haven't looked into applying to staff all to often, as I dont know if this is a normal thing or not. Guess ill try to be as active as possible!

In my eyes being active on the forums is important for staff to be able to respond to tickets. Respond to ideas and other factors. On top of the need of being active to help people out. Being active on the discord is also really important for staff.
