If you are aiming to get a higher rank on SMP, PvP or Realms that relates to a staff rank, you are going to have a bad time.
On Realms we are currently not looking for anymore Staff members on it. There are just not enough people and we don't need more unneeded Staff for that.
On PvP it is basically rules free and most likely doesn't need to be moderated as much due to our plugins that block or warn the players. How about actually trying to have fun getting all those weird rank names next to your name?
On SMP the main idea is to have fun. Trusted ranks are given out to people who don't actively act like they want to be staff. But like I said in the first paragraph, if you are aiming to get a higher rank then you are going to have a bad time. Go make a shop or build something epic or something else.
And basically that's my rant over.
