Each prefect/mod/admin must go through the Groundskeeper rank before moving on. Groundskeepers will be in charge of the castle (spawn) grounds and answering any questions that may come up. This also gives the staff team a chance to get to know the player and see them more from a staff perspective. There are no extra questions required for this rank. ____________________________________________________________ Required Questions All of the questions listed in this section are required.

However, we are willing to provide you these short few tips on what to format when applying. Please reference these tips when posting your application. Bold your questions, leave answers unformatted. Organize it the best you can by providing the question and then the answer. Don’t make your text too large. Use color to emphasize important phrases, but don’t overuse colors. Be detailed in your answers. Overshare information, don’t risk not answering something completely.
