Discussions to submit requests to join!Think you’re ready to Join Staff? Hit up the Resumes category at
Not Sure if you’re ready yet?
Not a problem. It’s easy, you just have to meet a few criteria, and then make a request to join on Discussions (make sure to post in the Resumes category). If you don’t meet enough criteria, you will have your Resume rejected with an explanatory note detailing how you can become a better applicant. Be sure to put some effort into your Resume both so that you can look desirable in addition to letting everyone get to know you more. If you’re still confused, keep reading.
We do have a couple requirements that we look for in staff members. There’s no secret formula or edit count needed, but the TL;DR is that we look for people who are responsive, respectable, and responsible — meaning you should be active enough to improve the wiki and deal with spam, respectable enough so people can trust you with extra powers, and responsible enough to know the duties of your role and how to handle them. And as a bonus which sort of ties into the latter two, any extra experience with moderation or wiki editing is highly desired.
#1 You’re active
We’re a relatively old Wiki, and Diep.io is a relatively old game, with few new additions of late. This means that people are becoming inactive as there is little left to do. If you can prove that you are active and that you will stay active for a while, either by making frequent contributions or keeping up with Discussions on the daily, then you’re golden.
#2 You’re established
We can’t very well just let random people we don’t know join Staff. You have to have been on this Wiki for at least two weeks, and you have to be somewhat well known. Be friendly and interactive with the community, and you’ll meet this criteria in no time.
#3 You understand what you’re asking for
Preferably, you have to know what how to rollback, how to block, and how to utilize the Sentinel/Moderator powers before you acquire them, not after, otherwise we will have to school you through their uses. You also have to be responsible enough to respect the powers we may give you. If you can prove your responsibility, then you’re all set.
#4 You have experience
This is not required, but it helps a lot. If you’ve been a mod before on this Wiki, other Wikis, or on similar websites such as Reddit, UESP, or Wikipedia, then that will make it much easier to become Staff. Having any Rewards will also make your Resume look good.
Write whatever you want, but focus on why you want whichever rights you’re requesting (Sentinel or Moderator) and what you would do with them. Including a bit of information about yourself doesn’t hurt either.
Once you’ve posted it on the Discussions, a Community Administrator or Senior Administrator will review it. They may then, usually after discussing with the other Admins, either accept, reject, or suspend your Resume.
Having your Resume rejected, whether right off the bat or after a period of time as an Intern, means that your application has been thrown out. An Admin will list the reasons for the rejection, and then you may reapply in one week.
This is what most usually happens when your Resume is submitted, since Resumes are rarely approved or rejected outright. Suspension means that you get to become an Intern for a period of roughly seven to fourteen days, so that you can prove yourself worthy to be Staff. The Admins will watch and guide you throughout your Internship until they have decided whether you should remain on Staff permanently. If you’d like some details about how to be a successful Intern, click here.
Acceptance is when an Administrator believes, either after sponsoring your time as an Intern or because you were qualified enough from the get-go, that you are fit to join Staff. You will be offered usually either Sentinel or Moderator rights in a permanent sense, and should you accept, then congratulations, you will have officially joined Diep.io Wiki Staff!
