|-NCBA-| Staff Team Announcement


Age Requirement Change

We have recently changed our age requirement from 15 to 13 for new staff coming into our team. We want to make sure we have enough staff to manage our servers. We've realized that younger players of the Garry's Mod community mostly apply for staff than older players. Our management has also noticed that some of the younger population of Garry's Mod is already qualified to be as skilled and efficient as the older population of Garry's Mod. We hope this change can take away most of the stress that our current staff has on a daily basis. We want to ensure that staff always have help from their coworkers when needed. Our goal is to even more improve the numbers and activity of our staff, so we can continue to grow and succeed as a team.


Staff Training Improvements

We are in the works of improving our training department. We want to create a more efficient way to train new staff coming into our team so we can better help non-experienced staff to become experienced in staffing. It's very important to us that we help create an efficient and experienced staff member. We not only train and prepare our staff for OUR community, but for others as well in case they part ways in the future to provide their skills for another community. We will be making a full guide for trainers to provide most of what they need to train the future of our community. We will be changing and improving our whole system on how we prepare staff for the future. You can expect big changes to our training department throughout this month.


Staff Meetings

Having meetings is a very important part of a healthy and active staff team. Being able to dedicate 1 day of the week to recap recent events and performance during that week is important. Doing so allows staff to improve and become aware of what they could do better the following week. Having regular meetings also allows the ability to express opinions freely, and the freedom to suggest anything for the team, community, and most importantly our servers.

We've had trouble in the past and the present in hosting regular meetings each week. We want to improve our activity in hosting regular meetings on a specific day of choice. We can ensure all staff that we have plans to host a meeting every week unless all of our management are away. We, however, have not yet chosen a proper day to host a meeting every week. We want the day we do a meeting to be the day most of our staff can attend it. If any staff want to suggest a day for meetings, please contact the Head of Staff.


Keep up to date with this forum to stay informed on any changes to our server, community, and staff team.

I'm kinda sceptical about the age being 13 abusing admin powers but what ever floats your boat.

"Our management has also noticed that some of the younger population of Garry's Mod is already qualified to be as skilled and efficient as the older population of Garry's Mod"

We have already developed a way to mostly pick right out of the bunch. We've noted and recorded actions from all of the staff from our time and have a good understanding of the bad ones from the good ones. However, this doesn't mean we won't have an occasional abuser or mingy member slip past.

The whole point of the interview would be to get to know the person one on one. We know how to get personality and understanding of people. Also, before a staff member would become "Moderator," they would have to take a semi-difficult quiz for most younger staff members. If they pass, it would mean they have actually tried and learned things over their time. This is something I've been secretly working on.

So don't worry, we've thought about how to do this. If you're still skeptical about it, I don't know what to tell you.

Age shouldn't matter on who becomes staff here, their ability to perform and act as a staff member. That is why the staff application has multiple meaning.

Some Meaning(My opinion)
  • Grammar/Punctuation.
  • Ability to follow and answer question properly.
  • Also helps us to understand you as a person.
