  3. Trainee - Moderator - You don't know free hard work yet but, you will. We cautiously welcome these fantastic people into a service we know is not appreciated but, must be filled. You have to start somewhere. These folks are the runt of the litter, the lowest rung on the pole, the last step on the staircase, and the bottom of the barrel and yet their passion for this little corner of the world burns bright. We expect great things from these members and intend to help guide them with enthusiasm and experience in the best way we know-how. Although rough around the edges these lovely people can still be molded. With a lot on their plate and plenty to learn there is no doubt, they have what it takes if they chose to pursue this goal. We hope to see you soon Good Luck! Qualifications - This is the minimum standard by which members must adhere to be considered for this position. 18+ / There may be rare exceptions (ONLY MADE BY MANAGEMENT) English Speaking Excellent communication skills 3 months of activity in our community Positive Attitude Desire to Learn Good community standing Understand the rules & guidelines No bans within 3 Months of applying (Bonus) Previous staff experience Application Review Process Upon posted application by standard application will be hidden from all non-staff positions. The application will then proceed in three phases. Phase 1: Application Review - The application will remain in review until all "active" members of staff have voted; +1, -1, or Null. At which point the majority rules. Phase 2: Applicant Interview - The applicants who've succeeded in the majority rule will be contacted and have a Time/Date scheduled for their interview. All staff members are encouraged to attend the interview if available. The interview will consist of a series of questions written or randomly asked by any staff participating in the interview in any order. upon interview conclusion, the applicant will be asked to leave at which time a formal discussion will happen to debate the details of the interview and application. At this point depending upon how many spots are available the Administrator(s) and Senior Administrator(s) will vote majority on who will be joining the trainee team "This should not exceed 1 Week". Phase 3: Following the Administrators decision the elected members will be invited to a platform channel in which they will be instructed on the further procedure and information pertaining to their new duties. They will then be given all permissions necessary to perform their new functions. Let's Get Down to Business - As a Trainee - Moderator you are considered probationary. This implies that you may not become permanent staff. We remind you that this is not a competition against your peers and will receive no merit for that kind of attitude. We expect you to follow all instructions as given by your provisional team and want to aid you through this process as much as possible. You have quite a bit to learn so please pay attention and be positive and you'll do great. You may know something but, not everything - In a staff position you are expected to be able to use your own judgment. This is not a skill we can teach you. It is a skill that must be learned. This will take time. Don't rush yourself and don't assume facts that aren't there. This period should be a time to improve and enhance your people skills from a different perspective. We have to assume you've never been staff before because all communities are different in nature. Ask Questions - There are no stupid questions. You are encouraged to ask any and all questions. We can't assume to know what you know and you shouldn't assume to know what we know. Your peers may have a perspective that you didn't think to ask. Your training period is designed to prepare you for a permanent staff role however, that does not guarantee you'll be exposed to every scenario or situation. In this event ask your questions and learn as much as you can. Trainee - Moderator Details & Info How long is probation? Probation standard time is set at "1 Month." This period may be extended up to "3 Months" Max. Your graduation to a permanent member of staff is dependent upon your ability to pass a formal review at your supervisor's discretion NO EARLIER than "1 Month" into your trainee period. This review will be held and constructed by our Administrator(s) and Senior Administrator(s) This process will consist of a majority vote rule. How and What can I moderate? You have all the abilities as a moderator in a supervisory capacity. A member of your peers may contest your decisions with the Administrators at which time can be overruled by a single or all if unable to show valid cause. ATTENTION - By applying to be a moderator in training you are not guaranteed a spot on the server you wish to apply for. In the event you are not offered a specialist position within a month of probation you may be removed from the staff.
  4. VS Invade & Annex Dev Server (Temp Server) Connection Info: IP: Port: 2502
  5. Hello @Invade & Annex Players, You may have heard about some of the changes coming to Volition Servers. We are happy to announce these changes will be coming sooner rather than later. We are transitioning our machines operating system to Linux. This should add some extra stability across our servers and help improve your experience. Unfortunately this is going to come at the cost of Uptime. Our Primary Invade & Annex servers will be down for a period of time during this transition. We would like to thank all our members for the support and help getting us to where we are and look forward to providing you great service now and in the future to come. The following sections of this post should help alleviate some questions you all may have. ==============Q&A================ When will the server be down? ```This transition will be happening tonight at around 7:00-10:00PM CST that is 6/21/2020 at 7:00-10:00PM CST``` Why is it happening tonight? ```We are doing this transition tonight in hopes that our player base will be more depleted due to the Fathers Day Holiday``` How long will the main servers be down? ```We aim to have at least the Invade & Annex Altis Server back online within a 3 Hour window. Ideally this transition will be relatively smooth; however, we are taking into account unforeseen issues.``` How will I be affected? ```Our players will really only be affected by downtime. When the server comes back online you will be able to continue to play as you have in the past unhindered.``` Will the servers rank or IP/Port be changing? ```At this time neither the IP, Port, or Rank should be affected by this transition``` Will I be informed on the progress of the transition? ```Yes, We don't intend to include everyone on the minute to minute but you will be informed on the scope of the progress such as: When the transition is completed, when the server is back online, and if there are any delays/issues we run into.``` What should I expect from this transition? ```Don't expect a world of difference directly in server related performance; after all this is Arma 3 but, you should see better performance in the regard of our other servers being hosted on the same machine in the past affecting performance on our Invade & Annex servers and vice versa``` Will I still be able to play Volition Servers Invade & Annex? ```Glad you asked. Yes, you will be able to play Invade & Annex on a temporary second Altis Server that has been brought online for our players during this transition.``` Is there anything I can do in the meantime? ```Not really, We just ask that you are patient and understanding of the situation and we will try and get everything back to normal as soon as possible. You may play on the temp server and have fun.``` ==============Footnote================ Now that you have been briefed on the changes hopefully that cleared some questions up. The temporary Volition Servers Invade & Annex Server connection info will be provided following this post. Again we would sincerely like to Thank You all for your support and help. Gaming has been a passion of everyone on the VS Staff for a long time and it's humbling to see how far we've come.

  8. @Pock3t.com @Valtrind @Monty @AppData I would like to provide more accurate information regarding how to get whitelisted. We are still keeping the Patreon page up; however, we are no longer promoting that donation method. Instead we have implemented a system here on the forums in order to receive payments securely through STRIPE or PayPal. https://volitionservers.com/store/
  9. @Guest24601 We acknowledge your concern regarding the monetization of the Volition Serves I&A; however, the information you have is inaccurate. The mission currently running on our I&A servers are not developed by us. The mission does have permission to be monetized. Here is the link if you would to confirm. https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/212240-apex-framework/
  10. Glad to have ya! Thanks for sharing
  11. You're welcome. Lots of stuff left to do.
