Are You a Pro Minecrafter? Turn Your Gaming Skills into a Job at Minecraft World!
As some of you have probably heard, I (Maroselis) will be stepping down as the Minecraft World's admin, both on the server and on this website. This means that WonderHowTo is looking for a new admin to take over my position and help keep our community growing!
Minecraft World is slowly, but steadily growing, and we need someone to step up and help new and old users alike learn new things about Minecraft. Not only would you be teaching others the ways of mastering the art of Minecrafting, but you will be learning from others, as well!
- The paid community leader for Minecraft has already been chosen. Thanks for all that applied. Austin Sirkin (aka Dr_Moustache) will now be the new admin of Minecraft World! But they'll always need help on the server, so go join the action.
If you're unemployed and looking for work, this could be your dream job!
* This is a paid position *

- Being active on the Minecraft World's Twitter account
- Keeping the server advertisements updated
- Managing the Minecraft server
- Updating and managing plugins
- Installing new plugins for in-game perks to award to winners of contests
- Using the plugin "mcbans" to /lookup players before promoting them and allowing them to build on the server (this helps prevent griefers)
- Rolling back griefings on the server with HawkEye (plugin)
- 18 years of age or older
- Must be located in the United States
- Knowledge of running a Windows OS Minecraft server
- Community management skills
- The ability to stay up to date on current Minecraft releases, updates, announcements and news
Knowledge and Familiarization of the Following Plugins:

* Being a server admin is not a paid position *
If you have a some free time and would like to help out as a server admin, let us know! We're looking for a few new admins on our Minecraft server to help out. Knowledge of HawkEye and WorldEdit are a major plus!
I would prefer that the people who "apply" for the admin position on the server have been actually playing on the server for a while.
Responsibilities of a Server Admin:
- World editing for users
- Wandering the map in your spare time looking for griefings
- Using the /vanish plugin to your advantage when suspicious people join the server
- Helping set up and judge contests/workshops
- Encouraging users to post their builds to the World for them to show off their creations
- Giving all new users a warm welcome
- Banning people who grief and rolling them back with HawkEye
- Keeping an eye on the Application thread and looking the players up and promoting them in-game
To apply for the paid position of community leader, please send your resume and a pitch as to why you would be a great fit for the position. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
