This thread aims to answer any questions you have about our staff application and our application process. If you're looking for tips about writing your application, have a look at this guide
instead. Our staff application has recently undergone some changes, and I thought it'd be beneficial to make updated guides to make sure you receive the most relevant information.
All applications are read and voted on by our leadership team. The leadership team consists of Owners, Managers, and Systems Admins. Applications are not considered "processed" until they have received a certain amount of votes from leadership team members.
| What is a Trainee?
Trainees serve as an introduction to being staff. The job of a Trainee is to assist players by answering questions, explaining how to use the server, and acting as a rule enforcer.
Trainees are expected to become familiar with every server on our server - this includes rules, commands, and how the game works. Trainees are the front of our support line!
| What are the requirements to apply for Trainee?
There are four main requirements you need to meet in order to apply. There are no exceptions made to these rules:
- You must be 15 or older.
- You must have a clean punishment history in the past 30 days.
- You have to posses the ability to act mature and responsible
- You are generally well known by the server.
- You are not allowed to use a VPN of any sorts. This appears as a red flag.
- You must have a Discord account and working microphone.
- You must have a screen recorder and be able to record.
- You have been actively playing on Axelli for 2 weeks or longer
- You need to Have a forum account.
- We also will be expecting you to remain active on the server. If a instance comes up where you will be away please notify a manager before hand.
Things that are highly recommended:
- Have a working microphone.
- Understand the rules.
- Good, friendly behavior in game.
- No outstanding punishments in the past months (bans, mutes, excessive kicks).
- A detailed application.
If your application is extremely short, you don't meet all of the requirements, or if you lie at any point in your application, you will be denied immediately after your application has been processed.

You can apply by clicking HERE
| How do I apply for Moderator or Admin?
You cannot apply directly for Moderator or Admin+. All members of staff begin as Trainees, and Moderators are selected from our pool of Trainees.
| What happens after I submit an application?
After your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by members of the leadership team. Once it has at least a clear decision, it will be considered "processed." When your application is processed, you will receive an message on discord stating whether it has been accepted or denied. You may be contacted by Flrp, Dj, or Kel within the next day with further information, if deemed necessary.
If you get accepted, you'll get some information in the acceptance message on your application. Please read through it!
| I submitted my application but I haven't received a reply?
Please be patient while waiting for a reply. Patience is an important trait of staff members, and repeatedly showing your impatience by asking staff to check your application makes you less likely to be accepted. Most applications are processed within a week.
| If I apply and get denied, when can I reapply?
You will be told in your denial message when you can reapply - this is usually 2 weeks after the date your previous application was denied. Please note if you apply before then, you will be instantly denied and made to wait an additional 2 weeks.
| Does it matter how many times I have applied and been denied?
No, you are free to apply as many times as you'd like. However, if you have submitted a significant amount of applications and still seem not to be getting anywhere, we would recommend taking time to completely re-evaluate your application and your behavior and try to change it up in line with our advice and rules.
| I have submitted so many applications and I keep getting the same response. What should I do?
We are always open to people asking us further questions. However, sometimes we find that people are so angry about a copy and paste message that they are blinded to the fact that it tells them exactly what needs to be changed/improved to make us look upon them more favorably.
It is beneficial to be self-aware of your skills and experiences and how they fit with a staff role. It is not our job to spoon-feed you the answers to your application. They are supposed to be a reflection of your skills, your passion, your personality and most importantly a demonstration of why you are capable of taking on the Trainee role.
If you are still receiving the same message, then it is because it is still relevant to you. Consider re-reading your application and adopting the mindset of "If I didn't know myself, would this application be sufficient to show that I have the skill sets to be a Trainee?"
Please note that raging at us in a personal message will push you further away from a staff position, as it shows your inability to take feedback and criticism well.
| How much "detail" am I supposed to include in my application?
What you choose to tell us is entirely up to you. We want you to tell us what things mean to you, and why they are important for us to know when considering you for staff. Tell us what you have learned from experiences of leadership in your life, what skills were needed, and how you overcame difficulties. The biggest thing we want to know is why
you wrote the things you did. A lot of times, players say things but don't tell us why they're important for us to know. Why does this prove you will make a good Trial Moderator?
| I have been banned/muted before, will that hurt my chances of becoming T.Mod?
Your reputation on the server will have an impact on your application - this includes all previous infractions and punishments. Trainees are a position of authority, and those with more of a negative reputation tend to struggle more due to the backlash they receive. We don't instantly deny people for having previous offenses if they are honest about them and can prove they have matured since then. We background check all applicants!
| Do I need to be active on the forums to apply?
No, forums activity isn't required to be staff. However, it certainly helps. All staff are required to be at least somewhat active on the forums - it's a place to assist the players with issues and respond to ideas and suggestions. Being active on the forums increases your reputation on the server as a whole. Being a well-known, well-behaved player significantly increases your chances of being accepted.
| Will I get paid?
No, being staff on Axelli is entirely voluntary.
| Why is this FAQ locked? What if I have a question that isn't on here?
This thread is locked because we believe the majority of questions have been answered here. If you have a question that isn't on this thread, then please message a Manager privately. You can find them by going to the members section of the forums and then selecting staff!
