    Staff Spotlights is a section dedicated to getting to know the staff members of our community, current or resigned. This is achieved through mini interviews with the staff members to get their views on staff, the server or anything inbetween.

    This section requires the help of any staff members, if you are a current or ex staff member looking to contribute then please get in touch with me.

    The category of the staff member is the rank they had when the interview took place, the interviews are ordered from most recent at the top, so check back often!

    Administrator Interviews

    Name: Camezonda (@Camezonda )
    Rank: Administrator (Product Manager)
    Promotion: July 31st 2016
    Interview Date: 25th February 2020

    ------------------------

    Tell us about yourself!

    Hey! I'm Cameron, also known as Camezonda or... Camabomba. I'm 20 years old at the time of writing this and I'm the Product Manager for CubeCraft Games. I used to live in Essex but I moved to Manchester to work at the CubeCraft office. I currently live in an apartment with my boyfriend, 3 hamsters and 3 guinea pigs.In my spare time, I like to watch YouTube, Netflix and sleep more than the average human being (If that's what you want to call me). I love memes, sharing and viewing them, memes are my life, like chipotle. I love playing Minecraft, on Skyblock and making cool creations with command blocks. Sometimes I play GTA V, Golf with your friends, Uno and other silly games... like untitled goose game, that game is a legend.


    What you do in your current position at CubeCraft?

    When I started at CubeCraft fulltime in September 2017, but job role was Product Manager. Which surprise surprise, means I manage CubeCraft products. Such as content we release on our network. Specifically now, it's just CubeCraft Minecraft server content, Marketplace is a different department from mine. But as time went on, I picked up other roles because they were either not being done or I needed to assist. At the time of writing this, my current roles are as follows: Product Manager, Support, Marketplace content creator, Marketing, Partners, QA, Moderation and other admin related duties. Product management means I manage a product from start to finish, such as from a suggestion/specification document to being released onto the main network. I look for suggestions on the forums and other platforms, filter them from acceptable, doable bit not yet to stupid/bad idea/wouldn't work. After I have a list of good suggestions/ideas, I make a spec doc for the update or new game. This then is giving to the developers to create. During the development I make sure the content being made is suited to the spec doc and make sure that everything is made smoothly. When the main development is over, I will QA (Quality Assurance) the product. Making sure that it matches the spec doc and there's no issues within it, if there are, it's fixed. If anything on the product is good for production (main network), it's released. Which leads onto my next duty.


    For releases, I created the threads that are released onto the forums. Sometimes the developers of the game assist if I wasn't 100% involved with the development at the time. Once the thread is made, I need to make server marketing for the update, such as global announcements, update book pages, bossbars, any main lobby changes such as on the NPCs and finally the server MOTD. Along with server marketing, social marketing is needed, so assets are needed for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, which means that different sized assets are needed.As mentioned above I'm the QA lead for CubeCraft. I have little teams to assist me as relying on one person is not ideal. So I test server content such as updates and releases, but I also QA the Marketplace. For example, survival spawns, skin packs, resourcepacks etc. This is to make sure that the content is perfect for when it is handed over to Microsoft for their content review and QA. I also look at bug reports made on our website, if that's web or game based issues, I validate them and add them into our bug tracker. Other small duties such as support, I reply to people on social media private messages such as Twitter and Instagram and sometimes answer emails from sales or support@cubecraft.net. Sometimes I drop into the world of CubeCraft Partners, such as accepting and rejecting new Partner applications, recently though, Marcoslater has been leading the Partnership program. Lastly, as I used to be a Moderator, it's still in my blood to hop onto the network and moderate, as I've been trained to do that for years :p


    How did you originally find CubeCraft, before all of this?

    I used to play on an old Minecraft server called "Multicube". But then it sadly shutdown. Whilst recording my YouTube videos, I seeked a new recording buddy, and that's when I came across Lindsey. This is the individual that changed my life, and I'm extremely thankful. Lindsey got me into CubeCraft, first I didn't want to, but then she convinced me. We were both stone ranked noobs at this point, and we just played Solo SkyWars 1.8, and tryharded it.


    After playing on Cube, what made you want to pursue staff on this server?

    Playing with Lindsey also known as SerketSyndrome or Serk, she applied for Helper and got it. Because of Lindsey she made me want to get staff too. I then made my forums account in July 2015, and I teached myself the ins and outs of becoming a CubeCraft Helper, such as reports and being active on the forums. I applied for staff for two reasons, one I wanted the shiny rank to be with Lindsey and second, I wanted to help keep community a safe place by reporting rulebreakers and helping people on the forums. I applied for Helper and then I got it, then one month later, I was mod!


    How did you feel being promoted into a much more prominent role such as Management? Did you feel unwelcome or nervous?

    I was given the opportunity for a role in management because of a little loot server I started. It showed that I had project/product manager and I guess the members of management liked that. I don't think that the role has hit me, it still hasn't. The role of Product manager is huge, the network is in your hands to control what goes into it. But when I first started, I was scared, because I never had a job before it, not even a paper round. I was worried that I was doing my job wrong. I was extremely welcomed and I was never left unhappy with my job. I used to have weekly product meetings, and for the first year and a bit, I'd always be shaking, but for a while now, it has started, I guess I'm extremely settled in now! :)


    Was there anything about the staff team that surprised you when you first joined?

    The banter and the chillness of the staff team was unexpected. It was like a family. Memes and funny moments were shared within the team and it was so funny to see peoples reactions. When I joined though, there were some people that didn't really like me and targeted me, to the point was finding anything to get rid of me, lucky they left otherwise, I wouldn't of been in the position I'm in today.


    Do you feel as though you learned skills from Management that you were able to use in your everyday life?

    To be honest, the CubeCraft life is completely different to everyday life. I wouldn't consider replying to threads, writing spec docs, testing and making command block content as everyday things. But from a professional life, CubeCraft has helped a lot, with the product management skills, testing and just communication.


    What is your favourite part of being on the staff team?

    My favourite part of being on the staff team, when I was a moderator and now the Product Manager, is testing updates with the staff team. For example, when we released Skyblock to staff only, it was amazing to see the staff having fun, reporting issues and making epic things. Along with releasing content to the community is also an amazing feeling because they are playing something you've been planning for months, and it's awesome to see everyone happy and playing on CubeCraft!


    What is the most stressful part of your position as 'Product Manager'?

    My role has its ups and downs, but if there's one aspect of my job that I dread, and that's seasonal content. Don't get me wrong, I love the content when we release it and it's awesome to see everyone enjoy it, but the behind the scenes of seasonal content is very stressful. For example, an EggWars update can be delayed if needed, but Easter can't, Easter is a set date, so you 100% need to hit it or people get upset or it makes the content pointless. Another stressful part is when multiple people need you. Such as someone needs you to test something, someone needs you to make a command block world, someone needs you for an update spec doc, ahhhhhhh, toooo many people. But this is obviously expected with any job, there will always be the stressful sides, but the good news is that the good parts overthrow the stress!


    What are your favourite memories from Cube? It can be one or multiple!

    My favourite Cube moments on CubeCraft are a mixture between before working at CubeCraft and after. Back when I was Stone, Iron, Obsidian then Helper, Mod and Sr.Mod etc, myself, Lindsey and other staff members and community members would tryhard 1.8 SkyWars for days, we'd have so much fun, I will never forget them times, especially because I have some of them recorded lol. Other amazing moments are the old CubeCraft live streams every Friday, the laughs we had were unforgettable.


    What is your favourite gamemode ever released on Cube?

    I have a selection of favourite gamemodes. 1.8 SkyWars, obviously, as I spend days on end playing it. Archer Assault is on the list, I just like the gamemode. Parkour is on the list, as it's such as polished gamemode. But the most recent one is of course, Skyblock, don't judge... I love Skyblock.

    ------------------------

    Tell us about yourself!

    Hai my name is Animal, or Ani for extra short. I don’t talk about myself easily, in situations where it isn’t fluid to the conversation, but here goes. As you can probably guess, by my name, I absolutely love all animals, but honestly if I had to pick one that I would want to have as a pet it would be a wolf. Despite that, I have had 13 hamsters, 2 Dogs, 2 Bunnies, 3 Birds, a Horse and a Cat. Not all at once of course! I still currently have a dog, cat, horse, and a bird; though the rest have come and gone. My favorite color is turquoise, simply because I never could decide between green and blue when I was younger and had friends telling me I could only pick one color. I also really enjoy artistic things, shocking as I spend a good portion of my time studying, and absolutely hated lunch break or really anything that took me out of class as I always loved to learn and do homework. I hardly sleep, and am always up at crazy late hours of the night, but have a running joke in this community that I never sleep as I am always online.


    Can you tell us about how you discovered CubeCraft

    I actually came from the Chunk when the merge occurred. I was a part of the community on the Chunk, and friends with a lot of the staff there like Snodia. When the merge happened, I followed along because I loved the Chunk and figured, while CubeCraft was not the same server, it would be equally as enjoyable to play on. Ever since then I have been hooked and unable to leave the amazing community or friends I have made here.


    What made you decide to try and be staff on this server?

    At first I was not sure if I could ever meet the qualifications for it, but after some time I decided it was worth a shot. When I was first on the server, before I had a rank even, I got a lot of harassment from members trying to be funny because I was a girl. I decided from then on I didn’t want other community members to have the same experience, and I wanted to be a part of ensuring their time on the server was enjoyable. Of course this meant I reported these users every time, and I even followed a user who was cheating for several hours until he got fed up and showed me his cheats. I loved helping people, and would frequently sit in the lobbies just answering questions as much as I could. It also helped to see Snodia and other staff doing their jobs as it truly inspired me. From then on I knew I wanted to be a part of something more than a reporter, on a server that I fell in love with and for a community I wanted to protect. I desired to be a part of ensuring people had an escape from life that was pleasant, if needed, but also somewhere they could make friends and bond with a community.


    What is your specific job on the staff team?

    As of recently, per the Admin Team creation/change, it has switched to being Head of Staff. This means that I am the leader of staff, in a way, but I never desire to have this be held over the heads of the rest of the team. I really try to keep myself at a balanced level with them and not overstep them to make a decision, unless it is specifically my job/decision. With that in mind, to go into a bit more of a specific description, my job is to ensure things run smoothly from all sections of the team. This entails me helping the other Admins with their various tasks, when it may be too much or simply they ask for it. I also try to help the (Sr)Moderators on the team as much as I can to ensure that we are providing the best service and experience to the community. Although, helping the rest of the team is a portion of what I do, I also have a few other responsibilities, besides the aforementioned, that I do back-end to ensure specific tasks happen or some changes that could be beneficial to the team/community are well explained/not overlooked. Despite the majority of my job being back-end now, I do desire, and strive, to interacting with the community just as much, as we would not be here without them.


    Was there anything surprising to you about the staff team when you first joined?

    Honestly? Not really, not to say I expected everything that I came into when I became helper, but I knew that the team worked pretty fluently as a unit. I had experienced it through my friendships with some of the staff. I will say that it did surprise me at how quickly I moved through the helper phase. This was simply because I personally did not have a lot of confidence in myself, and it was almost a complete shock to have a whole manager team that believed in me and people that supported me to the point where I was able to thrive in the way I did. I honestly don’t know how successful I would have been if I did not have those that were supporting me, supporting me.


    Do you have any personal advice for aspiring staff members?

    Being staff has been a very challenging but fully enjoyable experience. It is not all perks and excitement, as it is also dedication and hard work. Due to this, my advice to players who want to be staff is to be knowledgeable on what it is exactly that they are applying for and desiring to do. While the perks are enticing, and being able to punish users immediately is convenient, it is a time committment. Being a part of a staff team, that is there to serve the community, can be seen as taxing and cause a lot of burnout in a person. This is especially true if they are lacking a genuine passion or even understanding of the amount of time they may dedicate to the position.

    While it is a volunteer position, it is one that will still require attention and persistance to accomplish aspects of the responsibilities the staff team holds. This is mostly due to the fact that they will be given a lot of permissions and tasks, to ensure they are best serving the community and assisting in keeping the server running well. Even though there is a way to glimpse the amount of work it is through reporting, that is only a portion of what you do as a staff member. Although, while as a staff someone is given a lot of responsibilities, it also puts you in a position where you are looked up to by a lot of other users that then play on the server. Meaning, how someone presents themselves or represents the server while staff, will be noticed by the community. Although, this does not mean you should be putting up a mask or acting like someone you are not.

    This just emphasizes how much more you should be ensuring you are yourself and that you are true to yourself. Especially since it is never expected that you do above your best. If you put your best into the task at hand, put your heart and your personality into it, it will allow for the job to be enjoyable and not a detriment to your own mental health. The detriments, though, can come from the fact that the position can add a lot of pressure to someone’s life or even some negativity due to a decision that they make. Even still, the rewards of being a part of something so much more than just punishing users, makes it worth it in my opinion. Being a part of a community that loves you and a team that supports you, allows for even the most stressful of times to be bearable.

    Which brings me to the fact that, even though the rank is nice, the love and support from the community is what truly brightens my day and makes all the work worth it. That is something that should be held onto. If you have a passion for helping the community and server, then this may be the path you should persue. It truly has been such an amazing and rewarding experience that I am glad to be a part of and desire to remain a part of for as long as I can.


    Do you feel as though you learned skills from Cube that you were able to use in your everyday life?

    The main thing I learned from Cube that I can use in my everyday life is how to be completely calm and understanding in difficult situations. There have been a lot of times where being calm under pressure, so to speak, has been more beneficial and helped to calm the situation. This also helped to teach me to remain professional and keep emotions out of responses to stressful situations in order to best understand both sides and assist in the situation.


    What is something that you found extremely stressful about being staff?

    The most stressful times have always been when there has been some sort of uprising in the community that has led to a lot of drama or anger. This was especially true when it occurred when I was the main one online. It caused for a lot of repeat messages, fast typing of responses, and rewording things to best help the community understand with the knowledge I had. It also meant taking a lot of heat for decisions that I, as a staff member was associated with, but may not have been completely up to me. Though, through that I was able to respond in ways that would allow for a more calming response or feeling of understanding from the community, despite the stress/pressure I may have felt.


    What are some of your favourite memories from CubeCraft?

    Some of my favorite memories on CubeCraft have been when I would test bugs with my friends. It has always led to a lot of laughs and moments of confusion/bafflement. I remember when Slime Survival had a bug due to the mannequins in the game. You could break them and then spam place the head to create an infinite decoy. It was quite a lot of fun to gather a friend group for this and laugh over the baffling reactions they had when I was testing it and it proved to be true.


    What is your favourite gamemode in the history of the server?

    I am going to have to go with Eggwars. Being someone that uses a trackpad to play, it was one of the more enjoyable game modes. I love being able to strategies and learn to work with my teammates to accomplish the goal of surviving. It definitely brings about a unique aspect to PvP styled games as it isn’t just about rushing to kill or shooting someone off, as there is also the egg as a factor. Definitely brings people on a team together and offers more of a bonding experience.

    Another game mode was Bingo. This was also for the aforementioned bonging experience/enjoyable memories/strategizing, but I loved the game due to its simplicity and non-pvp focused aspect. It was a lot of fun to play with the community on and to just in general enjoy with friends. I thoroughly loved having it on Cube, so much so that when it was removed I found a mod of it online and downloaded it to proceed playing it with my friends.

    ------------------------

    Tell us about yourself!

    Hello my name is Luke and I like penguins. I have a cardboard cutout of a penguin who I named Jim, we’ve been through quite a lot together. (https://imgur.com/a/b9waWys)

    I have over 60 houseplants, obsessed with gardening and really want to try and live off the land one day. I tend to binge a lot of movies and TV shows and play very nerdy games. I have a family golden doodle called Buddy who is a very handsome and good boy. Oh… also I have about 3k memes on my phone, the rest of my pictures are dog photos. I only have one picture of my girlfriend lol my priorities right there.



    How did you discover CubeCraft?

    So basically I was looking for servers to build on back in 2010 or 2011, and I found this server called Herp Derp - which was a terrible 3 player survival world on the bottom of the mc voting pages. I made a big mansion and met Marco after he was impressed, my first call on Skype. Then we decided to reopen the server with a new spawn, games etc. That’s how I met John and Joe. After a year we hit 20 players! Which was massive for us. Then I lost touch since I had to go to college/uni. Reached out to an old builder ‘littlelaw10’ asking what is Marco up to these days around September 2013. Littlelaw10 replied oh he spends all his time on this server called CubeCraft. I just thought Marco played it I didn’t realise he was the owner of a 500 player server at the time. Logged into creative and said hi Marco.

    After about 5 or 10 mins we got on a Skype call along with the build leader at the time, reminisced about old times… I’m not sure if Rubik was in it. But I basically got Builder after that.



    What was your favourite year working at CubeCraft?

    Probably early to middle of 2014, I was in 10 hour calls constantly on Skype, made so many new friends. Everything was just so fun, playing minigames was completely new to me and it was when I actually started getting paid for a hobby. Like £30 a month haha.

    I remember having to make a game every 5 days then a good ole 4 of them. stress stress stress. Made me realise that we could actually do it thought as it was a huge challenge. I didn’t have much of a social life but I felt like us sacrificing our time would give thousands of other people more fun



    What made you specifically want to work on Cube, was it because of your friends being there?

    It genuinely wasn’t work, I had dropped out of uni and had no idea what to do with my time, I volunteered at a charity shop to get work experience since I just couldn’t get a job even though I did well at school. So I just perused a passion which was creating stuff in Minecraft and hoped it paid off. (That’s quite hard to justify to people outside of the internet).

    At the time I absolutely adored everything about CubeCraft, every waking moment I wanted to help and do more and grow it into the largest server. As for ranks… I’ve been all over the shop, I started off as a builder, then became a mod since I just wanted to help more, after maybe a month became an admin, then I later became head admin which meant I had to manage the staff team on top of build team. Then I went to just build manager again as we grew bigger.



    What is your favourite part of being part of the staff team?

    Being able to work on Marketplace hands down. So I can see my nephews play games and maps our team has created, I was playing Minecraft maybe a year after oldest nephew was born so it’s crazy seeing them grown up and me and them building a rollercoaster together on our Candy Kingdom map.

    Like I’m just sat on the Xbox and my youngest nephew who’s 5 saying can we play one of your maps, *tries to hold back tears* "sure!" It’s really quite wholesome hearing that. Then we just sat there for a couple of hours building together. All possible due to Bedrock so I’m super thankful for that.



    What is the most stressful part of your position?

    Short answer: explaining to my barber everytime what I do, now I just say I work in retail, so much easier…

    • Stupid and stubborn people
    • People who think the world revolve around them
    • Missing important occasions with people I care(d) about due to deadlines
    • main one is people who share the amount of brainpower with a vegetable



    What are some of your favourite memories from being on the server?

    • Raising that £10k for Mind.org that’s by far one of the best things I’ve done in my life.
    • Meeting people from the internet, it’s so scary and weird trying to match their face to their voice. Just hearing that voice you’ve heard of hours and hours
    • First time I saw big Youtubers play the maps I made, proper fan girled.
    • When my Dad was very sick and I logged into build server, my team had made him a get well card… oof the feels
    • Back in 2014 I got a surprise birthday plot on creative server, first birthday party I ever had lol it had strip poles and everything.



    Do you feel as though you learned skills from Cube that you were able to use IRL or going forward?

    I learned the right and wrong way to fire people lol, project management was also a big one, being able to juggle loads of people around a schedule so that everything comes together at the end. I learnt that its not that hard to learn a new skill thanks to YouTube and CubeCraft team, like 3D Modelling, graphic design and behaviour packs. Some edgy skills would be don't trust everyone blindly and be safe on the internet with your security.



    Do you have any advice for aspiring Designers?

    If you see something and think "I could probably do better, how hard can it be?" Then it’s more than likely you can do it, you literally just have to try! The only way to be good at anything is through experience, trying is always the first step and during the next steps you learn more about yourself and what you’re capable of. If you find a passion it really does become so easy and fun, the first step is always like stepping on a lego brick but once you’re past it, you are at the kitchen and can eat a donut.



    What is your most favourite gamemode in the history of the server?

    Lucky Islands has to be my favourite. It’s just crazy and unpredictable, one of the few games I’m good at. There isn’t some sweat of a bridger coming at me like in SkyWars or EggWars, I whip out my wand… that’s a very nice bridge you have there… shame if something were to happen to it. BOOM!

    Moderator Interviews

    Name: Marieke2001
    Ex-Rank: Moderator
    Promotion: April 19th 2017
    Resigned: April 4th 2018
    Interview Date: 18/04/19 -> 28/11/19



    Tell us about yourself!

    I’m right now 17 years old, almost 18. I started playing minecraft about 5 years ago with my best friend. CubeCraft quickly got noticed by us and there we met Stefanvld, a member at that time. I joined the forums to do reports (reports were handled on the forums) and after a year or so I grew very rapidly in popularity. I did several applications for helper and got my helper interview at the start of april 2017. I’ve had lots of friends here, most of them are banned or left, and I made some new ones. I love reading books and I have the cutest dog in the world called Maks.



    Tell us about how you discoverered CubeCraft, where did you first hear that name?

    Well it started in 2015 or 2016. My best friend and I both started playing on a server called Kiwicraft. The owner was Stefanvld and this is kinda how we got introduced to Cubecraft. When we got bored of Kiwicraft, which was a survival server, we would go to Cubecraft to play Skywars and Survival games. So my first experience with Cubecraft was a really good one.



    So after playing on the server for a bit what was it that made you want to be staff, was it from being around staff members or such?

    It’s not really one thing or aspect that inspired me to becoming a staff member. It obviously started with Stefan getting the helper rank, but that was more the reason why I had joined the forums.
    One of my favorite games was Assassination, but there would be a ton of hackers and almost every active staff member hated that game, so I decided to do something for the Assassination community to help them a lot faster out with these awful hackers then reporting these hackers.
    Another reason was that people kept asking when I would apply. I had friends like dont_you_dare, unfearful, iloveyouu and more that were staff members. They kept asking when I would apply as I was really helpful with answering people’s questions at the forums at that time.
    I’m also very interested in organizing things and being part of the bigger picture and being behind the screens, so becoming a staff member was a way to experience this.



    When you became staff what was your favourite part of being staff in the beginning?

    My favorite part in the beginning was participating on everything behind the scenes and enjoying the perks of being a staff member. There was a vanity update we worked on with a lot of people, I was able to test games, I could spectate suspected hackers in vanish and etc.



    What is in your opinion the most stressful part of being staff?

    I think the most stressful part of it would’ve been the moments when reports started to stack up and nobody else would do them except for me and a few others. When I was a staff member we had lots of inactive staff members who did barely any reports. I think me and about 4 or 5 others did 80/90% of the reports and appeals at that time and the rest did only the fun part as testing or chatting. So sometimes I’d be like “at the end of the day I want to have handled -600- reports and that would took me hours to do and a lot of stress because of my own deadline and mentality to handle them as fast as we could.



    Do you have any memorable moments from CubeCraft? ones that stick out to you as your favourite whether thats a game launch or a personal moment with friends?

    I have tons of memorable moments on CCG! It kinda started with playing Assassination with Younisco, Iloveyouu, Snap, CyanYellow and my irl best friend JM_Deena at 3AM, continued with fooling around on the forums with now old, dead or banned account of friends! It’s too sad to see their account just not being alive anymore! I also have tons of memories from the Staff team. Yoya bullying me, Andy calling me Maryio because Marieke was too hard to pronounce, just fooling around with each other! I’m still making new memories, maybe not on the server itself, but more on the forums!



    What would be your personal tip for aspiring staff who want to help the server?

    Don’t lose your own personal touch while trying to become a member of staff. Some people want to be helper so badly that they reply in a correct way to everything and just not having fun anymore. It’s important to be serious when you have to be, but most of the staff members are still children. I was already quite known on the forums before my application got accepted. People already came towards me for their problems. It’s important to help the ones who need it and not to nitpick on everything you come across and reaches a grey line of the rules.



    What do you feel as though you learned being part of the staff team? Do you feel like you learned specific skills that you use in your everyday life?

    I’ve definitely learned how certain words can drive different responses from people. I’ve dealt with many appeals and because this is the internet sometimes people misinterpreted my words and thought I was angry instead of something completely else. It also made it easier for me to say no to people and walk away when needing to. Endlessly asking for an unban makes you only more annoying and that block message isn’t far away for me. In the staff team itself I think I learned the importance of communication. It was sad to see the staff team being very divided, but I also think that staff manager at that time could’ve helped with that, but didn’t. This resulted in lack of communication between each other, sometimes even hateful messages and fights.



    Was there anything at all that surprised you about the staff team that subverted your expectations? Something that you didnt expect when you imagined being staff before?

    Yeah the testing was actually a surprise. I never even knew it was a thing, never knew if it was taken seriously or just having a bit of fun with other staffers. At the time I did testings Yoyamin also joined a lot. We had some good laughs about a lot of stuff, just swearing at each other in Dutch and calling names. This sounds very childish, but I look back on it in a good way. The sad thing is that we only got to test games once almost completely done so we could test small bugs. Therefore our feedback wasn’t that appreciated



    Why are you no longer apart of the staff team?

    I got fired for “suspicion of leaking”. I was in a discord group with 4 other people and said that “I would say fun things” to someone, once he resigned. Someone in that discord group made a screenshot and sent it to Tacos. Basically the conversation between me and Tacos was back and forth about if I did it or not. After about one hour Tacos told me I remained network banned until I had proven my innocence and found the real leaker. I was angry, felt betrayed and felt stupid for saying those things.



    What is your most favourite game in the history of CubeCraft?

    Oof this is a hard one. I think Skywars always remains a classic for me, because it’s so easy and fun to play with friends, but I also really love Minerware and Tower defense. I think that there is a good balance on CCG with PvP and non-PvP games

    ------------------------

    How did you discover CubeCraft?

    Well, this was a while back in early 2015 when I was searching for a hide and seek server after watching well known YouTubers play the game. At this point I was quite new to Minecraft and I didn't know that most YouTuber's put the server IP in the description of their videos. Eventually, I went searching for "Minecraft servers with hide and seek" and learning how to join a Minecraft server and play the game multiplayer (After I had been playing singleplayer for a while, not knowing how to join MC servers). That's how I first discovered Cubecraft. I then started playing other games and found that they were all really fun!



    Why did you want to be staff?

    Initially, I thought mods were so cool. I remember reading OrangeGE's recruitment post and thinking "oh my god, I want to be just like them!" also Once I had joined the forums, I had become addicted to making reports. I thought that doing reports as a moderator would be so cool! (Even as a moderator, I was addicted to doing reports at first!).

    A month before I was recruited as staff, I started to enjoy the being a part community and what motivated me to become staff was to help others. Because my previous applications were denied, I was a bit lost on becoming a staff member and I had started to focus on becoming a decent community member. I still applied, however, I had forgotten of becoming a staff member and just started to enjoy the server. It came as a massive shock to me when I was accepted.



    What was your favourite part of being staff?

    For the first few months, reports. I started to completely crack down on reports and no-life them. With the new reports system, a message broadcasted in staff chat each day as to who did the most reports that day. One time, @zDutchie @diogo and I had decided to complete the exact same number of reports that day. (The staff chat had gone crazy as this was the first time anyone had done this!). This started a bit of a motivation for moderators to work together on reducing the number of reports open. I absolutely loved this team work and team spirit! One day, a total of 8 members of staff had completed 100 reports! It was awesome!

    Another thing which I loved was being part of the recruitment and helper mentoring team! Reading bad applications was amusing and talking with the new helpers and resolving with their reports was awesome. Fun fact: I mentored @AnimalTamer1 (the current staff manager) when she was still a helper!



    What was a stressful part of being on the staff team?

    Generally the fear of accidentally banning an innocent player. I started to stress A LOT when someone appealed to me stating that they were innocent. I'd often re-check the footage to find that they were lying but sometimes I realised that I had rushed the report and probably innocently banned them.



    What are some of your favourite moments on the network?

    Me showing off to @zDutchie whenever I won a game of Skywars. (I had played thousands of games yet only won like 10). Hence whenever I won a game, I messaged zDutchie with an excited message. It were as if I had just won the lottery ^-^

    There was this one time when I was a helper where a team mate claimed he was hacking. They didn't know that I was a staff member since I was messaging them in team chat where I didn't have the [STAFF] prefix. I was basically begging them to show me their fly (so I could capture it on recording). He eventually hacked in front of me and I was able to get it on recording. The guy immediately rage quit when I /msg'd them "enjoy your ban", showing my [HELPER] prefix xD



    What is your personal tip for aspiring staff?

    Be yourself and don't be a wannabe. I know that sounds harsh but it's the truth.

    Constantly messaging staff members and wanting to be with them ALL THE TIME gives a really bad impression. Don't try to stalk them and let them do their job. When I was applying, I often spammed messages like "DON'T REPLY TO REPORTS" (on the old reports system). I eventually received a warning from @CARDAN18 informing me that I was coming on too strong and that I should leave that job to staff members.



    What was the reason you left the staff team?

    I got bored of Cubecraft and I personally started to really dislike Cubecraft's management decisions. Also, I left due to upcoming GCSEs and my downfall in swimming ever since I started Cubecraft moderation. Since I resigned from Cube, my grades have significantly boosted up and I won a medal at swimming nationals so to me, resigning was definitely worth it.



    What did you feel like you learned from being part of the staff team?

    Honestly, I don't really think I have learnt anything. As of now, my opinion of being a staff member on Cubecraft was that it was a complete waste of a year of my lifetime. I may have picked up a few conversation skills but there's nothing significant which stands out to me that I'd be able to carry into the future.



    Was there something that surprised you about the staff team?

    Well, at the time there was a massive divide in the staff team. To me, it seemed as if the staff team was one whole happy unit working together but nope.
    Oh, and also the perks staff get. They get pretty cool perks which I didn't realise such as obsidian rank, being able to test new games, gift cards, etc.

    Interview Date: January 24th 2019

    ------------------------

    How did you discover CubeCraft?

    Basically, when I got the real version of Minecraft, the first thing I wanted was to play multiplayer with friends, as the previous client I used was called Keinett, but was very limited in servers, Cube wasn’t available yet. When I got it I just went on site after site looking for a nice server to play on. I’ve tried many back then, but Cube really got my attention.

    I wasn’t aware of a “community” yet, I simply joined to play. The one thing that really got my attention is the way that Cube works. It was so clean and organised, compared to other chaotic servers at the time, and I’m glad we still have that style today.



    So what made you want to be staff on this server?

    I honestly have no clue, but I think it all started with me getting banned for cheating. Back then, the first ban duration was 9999 months if I can remember, so basically no more CubeCraft for me. I got in touch and discussed this with Rororoyourboat (who has sadly since left) and after a long discussion with her, I got unbanned and really started to have respect and interest for the work staff did.

    I started becoming active myself and slowly I started gaining positive attention and people were noticing me. I’ve applied maybe 4 times in total, and the first 3 of them were pretty cringy, but the 4th one did the job. That’s how I’m here, and I’m still thankful for everything Roro did for me!



    What is your favourite part of being staff?

    Reports are still my favorite thing to do even now. That was something I was really hyped for when I first got moderator and I still absolutely love it. Mainly because of the variety in reports, you learn different languages and so on. Ofcourse I still do other things, but reports has to be my number one favourite thing I normally do everyday.



    What is the most stressful part of being staff?

    The disrespect from some players. Every staff should love their job, no doubt about that, but people seem to forget we’re volunteers. This disrespect mainly comes from people who think they have been unfairly banned or muted, and if I can be honest, maybe 1 in 15-20 is actually unfairly punished because of a mistake. I think if those people would be in our place for one day then they wouldn’t know where to start and their heads would explode. Dealing with all those spammy messages isn’t easy at all, especially if they’re arrogant, but I usually just let that slide and try to be as casual as possible.



    What are some of your favourite moments on CubeCraft?

    I’ve had a lot, but one the most fun things to do was trying to follow/stalk the staff member during the streams on twitch and trying to get in their game. Besides that a lot of fun things have happend and it’s even too much to remember. Just playing around with current and old friends is always a lot of fun.



    What do you feel like you learned from being staff?

    The way to treat people and react in both negative and positive scenarios. Being a staff member is all about good communication between the staff team and the players. This skill has progressed a lot over the past years, that it even affected my real life. Usually I’m shy and introvert, but learning how to treat people and talk with them, that’s completely gone. As I said above, I don’t want to be the strict staff member that nobody likes, my goal at the end of the day is to still follow the rules and do what they expect from me, but as casual as possible.



    Do you have any advice for players seeking to get staff?

    First of all, before applying, think more than twice. Is this really what you want? To be able to help the server and the people playing? Aren’t you just attracted to the rank? If you’re sure you want to be staff, try to be a unique one. Everyone can tell someone the rules or warn someone for swearing, but it’s the way that you present it that makes the community like you. Find you own style and go with the flow (while still being mature and respectful of course). I can guarantee you that if you really want this job, you’ll get there one day. Just don’t make it too obvious that you’re doing it for the rank, make it a spontanious task.



    What is your favourite gamemode ever released on the server?

    Skyblock is still my bæ. It was so unique and was actually very popular amongst the community. If I need to choose one gamemode we have now, it’ll have to be Lucky Islands. It used to be Skywars, but I feel like the people there are very toxic and stuff, and lucky islands really has nice people.

    Helper Interviews

    Name: IceScreams (@IceScreams )
    Rank: Helper
    Staff Since: December 3rd 2018
    Interview Date: January 25th 2019

    ------------------------

    Tell us about yourself!

    I'm IceScreams, or matcha as some people like to call me instead. I'm from the United States, a fine place to live even if it has some flaws. I hope to travel the world one day, visiting every corner and the most remote parts of our planet. But in the meantime, I'm just trying to make do with my life. I, like many others, enjoy music a lot, even if I can't sing for my life or make my own tune. I don't have any particular preferences, I like to think of myself as an open-minded person. I don't mind if the song is in a language I can't understand, as long as it's something I can bop to, it's good. I'm also a pretty avid reader, so if anyone has recommendations, PLEASE send me something.



    How did you discover CubeCraft?

    My brother introduced it to me, basically when I first started playing the game. I originally wanted to try out Eggwars, cause I thought it was a cool game, but I didn't know which server had it. So once my brother showed me the way, I pretty much stuck around on Cube since then. Even though I get terrible ping.



    So what made you want to be staff on this server?

    I didn't really think about being staff till pretty much last summer. I don't really like loading myself with responsibilities and duties, but several of my friends kind of started talking me into applying. I mean I did fantasize about being able to get rid of cheaters and what-not without going through all the recording and reporting business, mostly before Sentinel was a thing. But yea, after quite a deal of convincing and encouragement, I decided to apply. Of course my first application probably was rejected because I didn't get a response. I think I've probably applied 3 times before finally getting accepted.



    What is your favourite part of being staff?

    I think the respect (sometimes) and authority (sometimes) we get is pretty neat. That's what I think really separates a player from a staff member. The tag. Without it, you won't exactly be taken seriously by everyone. Of course this isn't true for every case, but it's there, it exists. :p



    What is the most stressful part of being staff?

    The first thing, is attention. It sucks to see people in the server just only notice you for your rank. Prior to this (becoming a staff), the attention I received was practically next to zero. Aside from the people I actually knew and saw daily, no one really knew who I was. Maybe a few would remember me because I was on the FFA leaderboard at one point, but yea, the attention I received was pretty much non existent. Now that wasn't a bad thing. I'm a quiet person, so I'm perfectly fine with being in the background. But ever since becoming a helper, I would always get at least a random stranger saying "hi". It's sweet, but then you kind of notice that "hello" turn into "PLEASE PARTY, F ADD PLEASE".

    I think I left my friend requests opened for like the first week, and there's 5 pages of friend request from people I've never met. But that itself isn't really an issue. I know that staff members should always be polite and whatnot, and I do my best at being so. But sometimes we want a little space, if you get what I mean. I recall playing a Lucky Islands game, and one person in the game said "Hello IceScreams!" and "How are you". I said "Hihi, I'm fine". Now that would've been the end of the conversation normally.... but it clearly wasn't. The guy then started berating me about why didn't I ask him "What about you? How are you?" That kind of confused me, ahaha. I know it's an etiquette, but to be honest, I didn't care. I didn't know that person, and he didn't know me, for all I know, we could've queued up in a game before I became staff and never said a word to each other. So moral of the story? Don't expect too much, sometimes we just want a little space.

    So onto the second thing. I think the most stressful thing about being a staff member is that, most people don't understand why you do things a certain way, or just your point of view in general. The cynicism people express does make you die a little on the inside. I think people really need to take a step back and think, hey maybe I was wrong or I don't have enough knowledge about this subject before making a judgement. Of course, this is just with a few players, but a bad apple spoils the bunch.



    Do you have any favourite memories from CubeCraft?

    YES! I don't think people appreciate living the moment enough, till it's gone. For those of you who don't know, FFA is my most played games. The general conception that it's a toxic wasteland isn't exactly wrong, but it isn't exactly true. There are just different multiplayer manners there than really anywhere else on the server. I think a lot of people fail to take that into mind, but.... that's not what we're discussing here. FFA, yes. So I loved playing Classic FFA and Soup FFA. I met most of my close friends there, and I'm glad I did. There are just wayyy to many good memories of that place, it's a bit hard to decide. But I think actually having the goal of making it to #1 on that fancy 5 player podium was my best accomplishment/memory. The non stop grinding, and competition enthralled me. I get that things like this, aren't for everyone. Not everyone wants to play for stats, sometimes they just want to play for fun. That, the grinding, was my "fun", if that makes sense.



    What do you feel like you learned from being staff?

    Yes, communication is definitely a big one. Like I said, I'm a quiet person, perfectly content with living a life of a background character in One Punch Man. So it's a bit clear I don't like talking. It's not that it's because I'm shy that I don't like talking, it's because maybe I just don't feel the need to. That, I think, stems from thinking "I can handle this alone." BUT BOY WAS I WRONG. Asking for help isn't a bad thing, and never is. Asking for clarification isn't a bad thing, and never is. Communication, is absolutely the most important thing I've learned. So why don't they emphasize this more in school, guess that's a flaw in the school system.



    Do you have any advice for players seeking to get staff?

    Be genuine. Most of you probably don't have an idea about what you're getting yourself into. Are you here for the perks? The attention? The bragging rights? Or are you here to help. That's something most of you probably already hear a lot. But being genuine means more than just that. Cynamooo touched on this topic, "If you’re sure you want to be staff, try to be a unique one." This is something you'll have to decide for yourself. What does it mean to be unique? Be crazy active like Warriors? Be realistic like Quetzi? No, of course not. If you're going to remold yourself completely to fit an image, then you might not necessarily be ready for the position. Everyone says this, but it's true, be yourself. Don't try to give off an impression you're someone else. Of course uphold the Cubecraft rules and don't besmirch the rank you hold, but also don't lie to yourself.



    What is your favourite gamemode ever released on the server?

    Drum rolls please...... FFA, of course. I've said it already, but I'll say it again. FFA is probably the most suitable game for me in a way. I don't like being burdened. Games like Eggwars, can last hours (ouch). Games like Skywars, will have it's fair share of players who try to drag it out. FFA? I just need to join a lobby and plop myself somewhere and just enjoy playing or talking with friends.

    Keanu
    "The amount of work and effort you have put into the server is astounding, especially without any compensation (I think). I wanted to see you in pink for absolutely ages and that finally has happened. I hope we can all see you in orange within a few weeks! If you keep up your hard work, it would not surprise me to see you in blue one day! <3" ~ 03/01/20

    zRinne
    "You are defiantly one of the most kindest and friendliest staff members I have ever meet on here, your very positive and always bring a great energy! Many people complain that your not active enough, but they have no idea how much you have put into the server, how much time you focus on doing things people are not even aware of, and most of all, being an amazing friend. Thanks for all your work and awesomeness!" ~ 28/02/20

    Camezonda
    "Your maturity and professionalism have never stopped impressing me. Some people may sometimes say that you are the big bad wolf who you better not mess with or who does not care much for the community. They can't be more wrong. I've always admired how fair you are in every decision you make for the community, how dedicated you are to your job and with how much love for the server and community you go to work with every day. You deserve soo much more appreciation than you get. Honestly, no words can really describe how much love and respect I got for you. Never forget how amazing you are." ~ 26/02/20

    CapitanGato
    "Bueno, creo q sabes quién soy. Pero me es un honor agradecerte por todo lo q has hecho por la comunidad hispana, incluso también te consideraría como la salvación de la 1.8. Te agradezco por enseñarme tanto, la gente no sabe el gran esfuerzo q conlleva ser staff en este servidor, ya sea por la toxicidad, reportes, apelaciones, etc. no te dejes llevar por los comentarios negativos hacia tí o al servidor en general, anyway, son personas q solo saben criticar todo. Ojalá superes todas tus metas. Y honestamente, quisiera decir más pero sólo deja 600 carácteres, se te quiere mucho gatoide!" ~ 26/02/20

    Buuuddy
    "He is one of the most friendly people on CCGN imo.He always does his best to help me, check my reports when I ask him and so on.The way he is replying makes you feel better in general, maybe because he isnt harsh/rude and he always puts ":]". one big :] for him :D" ~ 26/02/20

    Kloska
    "Thanks once again for always being such a great, longtime friend! You’ve been doing amazing work for the moderation team for years now. I think it’s safe to say that it’s more than just me who appreciates your work. You deserve to be a SrMod. Congratulations!" ~ 26/02/20

    I guess the fact that they were some of the most liked staff members just cancels it out because the staff manager is corrupt ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
