    Title pretty well says it. There seems to be interest in me being a Helper on Red. So I am curious as to what is expected from a Helper.

    Also... what is needed to become a Helper?

    From what I understand, a helper's job is to assist the mods/admins do their job effectively. Make new players feel welcome and assist with any questions they have, alert mods of any problems going on in the server. They have the ability to /mute problematic players, but anything above that needs to be escalated to a mod I think.

    As far as becoming one, they used to do periodic helper applications, but from what I've heard they are trying another method where they select new helpers internally and reach out to you via DM. Just be friendly and active, and maybe let staff know you are interested, and hopefully they will reach out to you.

    I've been "reached" by multiple staff... that's why I'm considering it.

    Hey there,

    We like helpers to be active, friendly members of the community who don't participate in negative behaviors. Helpers are expected to welcome new players, answer questions, and serve as a point of contact for players who have issues that require mod or admin attention.

    (Personally, I think you'd be good at it if you're interested :p )

    Thanks,
    Sarchasm

    Well, I officially accepted the invitation to be a Helper... now I have to wait to hear back and see if I'm still wanted as one. Of course, if I am made a helper, they'll likely have to revoke that status within a week due to the problems I'll likely cause.

    Well, never heard back... so guess I'm either not needed or not wanted... so I withdrew from consideration. No Helping for me
