The MassiveCraft team maintain and improve MassiveCraft. Read the the team codex for more information on suggested team member behavior.
There are eight departments and three ranks. A team member may belong to more than one department at a time. You have one rank for each department.
The members of the direction department are handpicked by Cayorion. The directors write project specifications for the rest of the team to pick. Then they rank team members up or down based on their activity and what projects they complete. The higher your rank is the more authority you have when it comes to decisions for that department. That authority does however almost never need to be used and the main purpose of the ranks is to acknowledge the contribution from that team member.
Team Members get extra ingame permissions, a name color and a name prefix. The department in which the player has the highest rank is used. This primary department and rank will together form a teamtag. Cayorion’s teamtag is “Direction3″ since he is rank 3 and is primarily in the direction department. Teamtags are visible in the chat.
There’s two scheduled meetings each week.
The Direction meetings takes place on Saturday a few hours before the main meeting. Only directors are supposed to participate.
