Tell us a bit about yourself: I have played on the CraftyMynes server for approximately 2 years. There are various reasons I fell in love with CM and a couple things that I think could be improved upon. My main love comes from the community itself. I adore the energy and positivity the staff and players emit. I think it's beyond impressive that the core player base of this server's staff and regulars have been talking to each other for months, or years, at a time. The discord provides a close environment and allows you to build real relationships with people. There is a very strong sense of community and 'togetherness' that most servers struggle to maintain. I also love how vanilla this server truly is, while still allowing usage of key quality of life improvements that allow for fast gameplay. Something I think could be improved upon is player retention. Obviously, this is an age old battle and a monster task to approach, but I do think it could be positively impacted...the more engaged people are, the higher the likeliness that they will stick around. Luckily, the community does a decent job at creating an inviting environment but I believe more could be done. Server wide events would be an interesting idea to pursue imo.
As for myself; my biggest strength is a combination of two personality traits. I am a very patient, and extremely determined. I love teaching people new things and aiding the general public with anything I can be of assistance with. I have two weaknesses that I think are relevant to mention here. I'm fairly stubborn while also being a bit of a perfectionist. This sometimes leads to me scrapping entire projects and starting back at square one because where I'm at simply doesn't meet my expectations.
Why you are applying: I am applying because I want to be a part of the wonderful staffing team of Crafty Mynes. I want to help the server in a 'bigger' way and would love to be one of the driving forces in the community. I have the knowledge to support new players with Minecraft mechanics and the appropriate skills to aid the server in times of distress.
Time Played on CraftyMynes: 22166457 ticks.
If you could pick one thing about yourself to change what would it be, why would you change it and how would you change it: Complacency. I have been at a stand still professionally for a bit, and bored because of it. If I don't have a fix to invest myself in, I lose focus and tend to waste time. I've recently solved this by switching careers paths entirely.
