If you are a donator of any sort, your Respected rank will be fixed to adjust that. To have your donator Respected rank implemented onto the server, please refer to this thread. Q. What tools will I have Access to? A. You will have access to a variety of vote type commands: Votekick - Calls a "votekick" on a specific player. Syntax: !votekick <player> <reason> Voteban - Calls a "voteban" on a specific player. Syntax: !voteban <player> <time (in minutes)> <reason> Votes must be approved by majority. Press 1 to keep the vote, 2 to cancel. Q. Do I have to donate when I am Respected? A. It is Unnecessary to donate when you have become a Respected; however it is greatly appreciated and will help support the server. (Donating does not affect the decision of accepting you) Q. Why must I be 12 or older to apply? A. Becoming respected means to represent our community at all times with or without admins online. From personal experience, players who are generally under the age of 12 are less capable of making mature decisions or display mature behaviour. If you believe you are capable, privately message a Community Manager and an exception may be granted. Q. Why is my Application taking a longer time to be processed? Why has someone else been accepted before me? A. The Administration Team may know one person more than another. We must verify that each player is worthy of respected which can take more time if we have not known you as long as others. Do not worry. You haven't been forgotten. Q. If the Majority of members were supportive of my application, why was I denied? A. Ultimately, the respecteds are chosen by both vote and discussion between the Community Managers. Q. My Application was Denied, what now? A. You may have been unfortunate this time, however you are free to apply again in the future (after a minimum of 3 weeks). Get to know the community better, improve from any negative comments you received and hopefully you'll succeed the next time. Good Luck.
