The MassiveCraft Team

Introduction

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  may have one rank for each department.

Workflow

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. Massivecraft functions off a meritocracy and respects civilized discourse so long as it does imped progress.

In-game Effects

Team Members get extra in-game permissions, a special chat badge , and name colour that identifies you as an official staff member.
