2) I made my FIRST EVER donation to the server and haven't been promoted! What gives?
If you made your FIRST EVER donation to the server, and have not yet been promoted in-game, this could be for a variety of reasons.
If you have donated, and it does show on the website (as shown in Figure 2.1,) please see answers 2.1 and 2.2 below.
If you have donated, and it does NOT show on the website (as shown in Figure 2.1,) please see answer 2.3 below.
2.1) You have NOT allowed for 24 hours to pass since your donation. (Sometimes the auto-promotion system fails and an Administrator must manually promote users.)
2.2) You have allowed for 24 hours to pass since your donation. At this point, assuming your name shows as in Picture 2.1, please submit a query with the PayPal Transaction ID and any other proof of payment you can provide.
2.3) Your name does not show in Picture 2.1. This means that either something went wrong on your end (2.3.1,) PayPal's end(2.3.2,) or that the money was sent as an e-check(2.3.3.)
2.3.1) Your PayPal account has an error. For whatever reason, PayPal did not allow you to send money. This must be addressed with PayPal as it is out of our reach.
2.3.2) Rarely, PayPal will choose to withhold the money for a certain amount of time because its automated systems want to make sure the transaction is legitimate. This usually occurs with international payments. Do not worry, simply submit a query with the PayPal Transaction ID and any other proof of payment you can provide.
2.3.3) Depending on your PayPal account configuration, money is sometimes sent as an e-check and this leads to problems being promoted. If this is the case, please submit a query providing the PayPal Transaction ID and any other proof of payment you can provide.
3) I want to be part of the Server Staff! Please? I love the server so much!!! Also, where do I apply?
3.1)Staff are currently hand-picked, there is NO application. Becoming a Staff member isn't easy. Hundreds of thousands of players have passed through our server, and look at how little Staff there are. If you want to be Staff, you are going to have to put genuine effort into it. You must present yourself as a mature individual who, as a Staff member, would benefit the server. You shouldn't ever ask anyone if you can be staff (especially Admins,) or claim how great you are-that is a sign of immaturity. If you put in the work, you will get Staff. You must make the Admins and other Staff notice you without asking anyone to notice you. Be nice and helpful in the server, and be active on the website. If you want to stand out, go the extra mile, maybe make a awesome and helpful forum post or make a server video. Anything, be creative, and if you want it badly enough, as long as you are patient, you will get it. We are always looking for new Staff-always.
The FAQ will be added upon as time goes on. Thank you for your understanding. Any errors can be reported to "treestompz."
