Disclaimer: I am aware I am not a staff member and it is totally not in my place to say the do's and dont's, however, these are some things I personally have messed up in and or other people have. When applying for staff it is an instant +1 when you have followed the guidelines/formula's and correct outline for the application itself. If you fail to follow this step it is an instant -1 for most voters. Secondly, it is important that you are active on all servers, and on the forums, the staff do pay attention to this detail because it shows that you are active on Becto and are aware of the rules that apply to this server. It is also important that you are respectful and know how to talk in a formal calm way towards others. It is also very important that you can handle yourself in heated and or high-stress conversations with others, and that you do not lash out or be rude to players who are breaking the rules. You must be able to easily spot hackers, and or people who are bypassing the language filter. You must be able to handle yourself in a formal manner when around other's and be kind and respectful to players. I think this is pretty much covering it, I have seen many applications that do not do the first step which is the outline and it is disappointing to see them get rejected because of it when it could very easily be avoided. Like I said up top, I do know I am not a staff member and it isn't in my place to be mentioning this, I also understand to some people reading this, this is common sense, however many applications fail to follow simple steps.
