How Your Vote Works

We have fully finalized the system we would like to use in order to choose our next staff members. Bear in mind, we seek to take everyone's opinion on these choices, and we are not trying to run a popularity contest.

To start with, an application is either denied or deemed suitable according to their answers in relevance to the application answer key. Once an application is open, players are expected to mark who they support and who they oppose with a yes or no vote. Carefully consider if you support the applicant or not as your vote cannot be changed. Every application gets a full week, upon approval, to talk to the community and get their support. This will show the staff team that the applicant is able to communicate with the community, is well known, and has genuine support.

Your votes on the applications are an important factor to the final decision on the next staff...

Staff Position Now Open
Sadly, one of our Helpers has recently resigned from staff for personal reasons. This means that we are now short a Helper and that means that we are looking to fill this position fairly soon. If you believe that you are suitable and you love to help others, feel free to apply.

If you choose to apply, do not beg us to look at your application. Because a lot of us have different time zones, we may not see it immediately, but don't worry, we will look at it. If you constantly send us messages requesting that we look at your application, it may end up being treated as spam, or in more severe cases, harassment.

New Staff Application Format!

Due to recent changes to how we run things, we have updated the staff application format to better reflect the position that players are applying for. The new format also allows staff to have a better understanding of the person applying.

As we now have a new format, we ask that anyone with a current application make a new one using the new format. Do not delete or edit your current posts. Make a new application. Any applications using the old format will be moved into the denied section once you have made a new one.

The new format can be found here: http://www.new-heaven.us/threads/staff-application-format.654/

As well as updating the application format, the Rules and Guidelines for Posting a Staff Application have been updated to reflect the new format. It is advised that you take the time to read it as it will help you improve the quality of your application.

What is The War?
The war is just when groups of people attack each other in the game, usually based on race. No game elements have been changed, it's just more likely that death will occur with the new Human, claim and Werewolf updates.


What "updates"?
Humans now have a supernatural tracker they can use in which they can see the nearest Vampire (if it's night) and the nearest Werewolf (if they're transformed). Werewolves have the /ww track command where they can sniff a player by hitting them and they get a particle effect towards them.

Hunting (werewolf and human) plugin updates: http://new-heaven.us/hunting/

As PVP is forced on if you step into a claim that you're not trusted on, it will encourage more fighting on the server. The new Human and Werewolf tracking systems also encourage this. No game elements have or will be changed for the war.​
