What is staff about?

A staff member is a player who keeps our platforms safe from anyone who breaks the rules. Our responsibilities include dealing with cheaters, exploiters, hate speech, inappropriate content, and more. You are also a mediator between players, which may mean you'll need to step in if an argument gets out of hand. We also keep the forums and Discord clean by dealing with inflammatory messages, fights between users, and spammers/raiders; much of the same issues that pop up on the servers.

You should join not only because you are going to be helping the community, but also because you'll also be respected by some of the community members you help.

However, we do have requirements. You must be 13-years-old or above to join, no exceptions. You also must be able to speak and understand English fluently, have no active punishments, have a certain amount of forum posts and TF2 hours, etc. A full list of our mandatory and dispensable requirements can be found on the application format.

Before Applying
  • You must meet all of the mandatory requirements! Missing any of them are grounds for an immediate decline of your application.
    • You can miss only one of the dispensable requirements. Missing more than one of them is also grounds for a decline.
    • Requirements must be met prior to applying, not during the application process.
  • Note that you should never ask staff members to check out your application. This shows us that you have no patience at all. Patience is the key, young Padawan.
  • Be sure to revise your application, as you can not edit it 5 minutes after it is posted. Do not create a new thread just for this, as it will get both your applications declined.
  • If your first application is declined, you may reapply one month later. You must wait the same time if your second and third applications are declined. However, after a fourth decline, you must wait 3 months; fifth decline 6 months. After a sixth decline, you may not reapply without permission from a Head-Admin.
    • These waiting times apply for both forums and Discord staff applications.
  • If you wish to have your application withdrawn, it is an automatic decline and must follow the bulletin above or wait two months, whichever is greater.
Fill out the application form below: [copy & paste] & make a thread in this forum!

Mandatory requirements (you cannot miss any of these):

  • No active punishments on the community. | Info [ | ]
  • At least 13 years old (18+ preferred). [ | ]
  • Have a server connection time at least 48 hours. [ | ]
  • Public Steam profile for the duration of the application. [ | ]
  • You must have sufficient Discord/forum activity. (Forum account and on Discord server for at least 1 week, along with 5+ reports between each.) [ | ]

Dispensable requirements (you can miss only one of these):
  • No VAC/game ban(s) within the past year. | Info [ | ]
  • Team Fortress 2 playtime: 250+ hours. [ | ]
  • No limited Steam account. | Info [ | ]
  • If you are missing a requirement, please explain why:

  1. Your Steam ID:
  2. Your Discord handle:
  3. Your preferred pronouns:
  4. Your birthdate:
  5. Where are you from (timezone/country)?
  6. Do you have a working microphone?
  7. Do you speak any languages other than English? If so, which?

Questions:
  1. When are you mostly available to administrate on the servers? Please be specific.
  2. Which Wonderland.tf server(s) do you usually play on?
  3. Have you ever held an administrator/moderator position for another community?
    • If so, which community was it, what position did you hold, what were your duties, and how long were you there?
    • Do you have experience using SourceMod?
  4. What have you done to improve Wonderland so far, and what do you plan to do further as staff?
  5. Why should we accept you into the team?
  6. Anything else you want to tell us (maybe about yourself)?
