Banner gratefully created by Rosalia. Heyo! A warm welcome to the new Community Mentoring thread! Here at Community Mentoring, we strive to help community members reach their full potential. Unlike other non-official programs, our goal is to help community members fulfill their own goals. With over 150+ members to date, you'll be pleased to know you're in good company. Players who join this program will be assigned to a mentor who will personally work with them to improve on almost anything that is requested by the mentee. This will typically involve things like providing helpful forum posts, assisting others in-game, reporting rule-breakers, or again, anything that may be requested. Community members who are interested in joining should fill out the following application and submit it as a response to this thread. After submitting your application, the manager who sent you an acceptance message will give you a discord link. Discord is our primary method of communication in our program. Your mentor may use other means, but Discord is generally the only one you’ll need! What is your in-game name? What country do you live in? What are you hoping to get out of participation in the CMP? How have you already and how do you plan to contribute to the Mineplex community? BUT WAIT - Don't feel comfortable posting your application publicly on this thread? You can send your application to a manager (Its_tims or Marzie). FAQWhat makes this program unique? The main differences are our emphasis on personal mentor-mentee connections and our focus on indirectly benefiting the community by improving the members who are involved with it over directly recruiting members and monitoring the assistance they already provide. Who are the leaders of the program? This program is managed by Its_Tims and Marzie. Is this an official Mineplex program? No, the only affiliation to the Mineplex team is that staff members run the program. By no means are we an "Official Mineplex Program." How did you find me in this white text? Good Question. Will this program help me get Trainee? The program will be geared towards you improving as a member of the program, we will not directly help you achieve Trainee. Mentors will not help you with any step in the trainee application process. The last reply was over a week ago. Can I still apply? Yes! Since this thread is in Team Recruitment, the necro-posting rule does not apply! If you think that I've missed a frequently asked question please leave it below and I'll be sure to add it and answer to the best of my ability. When will applicants be notified of acceptance? An announcement with any internal updates to the program and accepted applicants will be posted here as soon as they happen. Applicant acceptances will happen in small batches of 2-4 people every day, every other day, or when there are enough people to accept (minimum of 2). What are the requirements to apply? Anyone who is not a part of the staff team is more than welcomed to apply! What are the requirements for becoming a mentor or mentor assistant? Currently, the mentoring position is generally for staff members only, however, there have been exceptions but with very far and few in between. If you are a staff member who is interested in becoming a mentor, please message the managers of the program for further information. Look at the question below if you want more information before messaging a manager. Want more information on becoming a mentor or a mentor assistant? We now have a document listing what Mentors/assistants do, what it takes, and how to become one! Click here for further information. I resigned from the program, do I have to make a new application? Any mentee who resigned after August 1, 2017, may message the program managers only if they wish to bypass the application phase and rejoin the program. Please say whether or not your goals have changed since you last joined and what your in-game name was when you last resigned. I have a question not listed here!

(Note: QOTD's and QOTW's mean Questions of the Day and Questions of the Week) About me: Hi, I'm PandaFyre or Catti-Brie (or just Katie) and I’m currently a moderator on the bedrock platform! I’m currently a member of Reports Patrol and I’ve been a mentor in the CMP since April of 2018! People say I'm like a big teddy bear, I'm very ‘huggable’ and easy to talk to. I love helping others out with things in game, or issues that are happening outside of mineplex and I’m always open to chatting. I have a helpful nature and I love meeting new people! I work as a volunteer in my city for various children’s programs! I help run summer camps and other fun programs around my city! I love pastel blues and greens and they remind me of a nice hot summer day! I'm 15 years old and in the 11th grade, my favorite classes being the sciences! Outside of school, I’m a gamer on Minecraft, but I also play the piano and hockey on an all-girls team! I'm strong with speaking my mind, and making sure others are alright and get the help they need on the server and irl. My weakness include running, as I have very poor stamina and injuring myself as I am very clumsy! Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: I love interacting with the community! Everyone is so unique and it amazing to get to know so many different people! Mentoring style: It depends on what my mentees want. I'm generally laid back and give my mentees space to do their own thing, while if they want that extra push I can definitely do that for them. What I do as a Mentor: I provide QOTD’s and QOTW’s based off of knowledge you can obtain by being in game, reading the forums and talking with staff and community members on the server. When my mentees have questions I answer them to the best of my knowledge or i direct them to the source where they can get the information. QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I do both. What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I ask anything from staff members roles on the team to bedrock features to help my mentees learn all the different sides of the server. About me: Hey! My name is AGLThree and I am a Sr. Mod on Mineplex currently! I'm part of the fabulous Recruitment team and also am on Reports Patrol Assistance. In the CMP, I work as a Mentor. I would say that I'm easy to get along with a type of person who wants the best for people around them. In the CMP, I do my best to make sure my mentees have all the knowledge they might need or want and are also having a fun time. I can be quiet at first when you don't know me, but once you get to know me, I'm a pretty loud person! Outside of Mineplex, I love to knit, read and watch Grey's Anatomy, often all at the same time. I do have to go to school and I'm currently a ninth grader and I love my biology and Accelerated Algebra 2 classes, as well as pretty much every other class I'm in. I love to hang out with my friends, whether we're listening to music, studying, going out or just hanging around. I would say that my strengths are friendliness, enthusiasm, helpfulness, and perseverance. I love to talk to people and if someone's open to engaging in conversation, I'd be happy to talk for a while. I'm enthusiastic about the work I do and the people I help, which leads into the fact that I genuinely love helping people out with their questions, problems and so on. Even if the task I'm working on is difficult, I'm happy to keep trying until I get it right. Both the CMP and Mineplex have communities with a wide variety of people and that are quite active. People talk a lot, both in the CMP Discord or in Mineplex lobbies, and I love that it's possible to engage with anyone at any time. I love to talk to people who are passionate about making positive changes and who are passionate about helping out and who are willing to learn whatever they can. Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: If this type of program interests you, I'd really recommend you apply! It's a great experience and a lot of fun! Mentoring style: I would say my mentoring style is casual but I will push my mentees to get the best experience that they can! What I do as a Mentor: I haven't started yet, but I plan on encouraging them and giving them some freedom of choice when it comes to what they want to accomplish and how they want me to help them in that. QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I will most likely do both but depending on what the group is more interested in, this will probably change. What type of questions do I ask my mentees: My questions will be a mix since I think it's important for my mentees to have a good understanding of most platforms on Mineplex. About me: My name is Phamtastic or Ryan. I am currently a Moderator and a CMP Mentor Assistance on Mineplex. Right now, I am on three sub-teams which is an Event Assistance, Ideas Team, and Stream Team. My dream team I want to go for is Event Squad, Staff Management, or Community Management. I have been on this community for like almost 4 years since I rejoined in September 2014. I first joined Mineplex in December 2013, but I was not interacting enough until a year later. My ultimate goal as a Moderator is to become a Sr. Mod! I am a kindhearted and loyalty people in CMP and Mineplex. Everyone in Mineplex loves me because I am kind, being honest, and trustworthy. I want to become an empathetic person, and I want to know their feelings in general. As I am MA, I am trying to be open mind and being helpful. My favorite hobbies that I like to do outside of Mineplex was swimming. I started swimming 11 years ago since 2007. Now, my new hobby is weightlifting and doing the treadmill at the gym. I do the exercise twice every week. My favorite food is ice cream because this dessert is so delicious. My favorite color is blue and that is the preference I picked a long time ago. I am currently 18 years old and studying photoshop at the computer institute. The first strength that I have is punctual because I am always on time and never being late every day. My second one is loyalty and this is one of my favorite word that reminds me to become a better person today. One of my weakness that I have is emotional. Sometimes I have anxiety when I am an emotional person. Like feeling bad and blaming to myself what I have done. Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: My favorite part of being part of CMP is interacting to my mentees. I love to be an approachable person who is trying to be with them no matter what. I also want to get to know them too and become friends with them too. My favorite part about Mineplex was getting accepted to Trainee on January 29, 2016. I started working on becoming a staff member since the first year of 2015 and through 2016. My second favorite was I achieved getting Moderator of the Month on September 8, 2018. Mentoring style: My several personalities as a CMP Mentoring is casual, laid back, caring, helpful, and supportive. I am sometimes a little bit strict if something that can be serious case by case. I am usually a laid back because I do not want to pressure my mentees a lot. What I do as a Mentor Assistant: I mean that I can try to help my mentees as long as if they can focus on their goals independently. I do not check their goals from my mentees they have right now, either Mineplex or irl. I can try to ask them what is their goals so that I can give them their insights. QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I do QOTDs every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday because me and Panda take turns on who is sending out the QOTDs. Sunday is the only exception that I can send out QOTD if Panda is not available. What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I give out the scenarios, rules, situations that are related to any platforms in general. The reason why because my mentees can learn more about what should they do to become a successful Mineplex Community member. About me: Hello there, my name is ThinkPuppy, you can call me Think for short or feel free to call me by my real name, Robert. I'm currently a Bedrock Quality Assurance member here on Mineplex. I enjoy playing video games and playing games during my free time. I'm not exactly interesting, but at school, I'm currently taking part in the International Baccalaureate program and I'm hoping to go into computer science in the future. I also enjoy playing games such as Overwatch and Watch_Dogs on top of Minecraft. I would consider my self to be an open-minded and creative person and I tend to be open to conversations. In terms of my strengths, once a person gets to know me well, they would see the better side of me, the kind side, but otherwise, I may seem anti-social which is my weakness, I don't have a lot of friends irl so I kind of became anti-social. Overall, the CMP gives a person an amazing opportunity to learn more about Mineplex and meet new people, so if you're interested, you should join us. C: Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: N/A Mentoring style: I'm not specifically a mentor who's serious or laid back, I'm more in between so I'd consider myself to be casual. You get a weekly quota of completing your QOTW and completing at least 2 QOTD's. You can also set your goals higher if you want, and you can also request a forums quota. If you want me to be slightly more serious than I can be, and as long as you message me or your MA ahead of time in regards to in-activity you'll get excused for the week or duration of inactivity. What I do as a Mentor Assistant: As a mentor assistant I try to stay more generally orientated, I don't try to push for a single platform more than the other, in many cases a person would want to have knowledge of everything. But aside from trying to stay more generally oriented, if a mentee brings up a goal I can give them some suggestion to help them achieve it. ^-^ QOTD's, QOTW's, or both: I do both QOTD's and QOTW's, we do QOTD's from Monday to Friday and we do QOTW's on Saturdays. Sunday is a day off for both the mentees and the mentors. ^-^ What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I tend to give them anything, even if you're aiming for Java Trainee it's still good to have a bit of knowledge about the Bedrock platform and vice versa. I also give them forums and Discord questions as those are platforms you should also have general questions about. About me: My name is Acaulis/Leah and I am a moderator at Mineplex, I am currently on two subteams those being Event Assistance and Quality Assurance Testing, I am a mentor assistant in the CMP. I'm a little weird and by a little I mean a lot, I can be pretty reserved in unfamiliar situations but I feel I have really came out of my shell these past few months and have let my crazy show to everyone. I enjoy playing games and listening to music (mainly bts) and I am currently working at both of the football stadiums in my city during match days. I recently turned 20 (February 1st) and enjoy every food because I'm a whale. I feel I am easy to talk to because I will literally talk about anything with anyone but my biggest weakness is that I find it hard to start a conversation, once it is started its great I just found it hard to start up a conversation/reach out to people. Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: My favourite part of the CMP is the reason behind it, I like that we as staff members can reach out and help the community on a closer basis and help them reach their goals, and the best part of mineplex is clearly paintball all other answers are wrong. Mentoring style: I would say my style is a lot more casual I would rather be seen as a friend or someone people can reach out to than someone who sees themselves as superior because who wants that tbh. What I do as a Mentor Assistant: Instead of giving the mentees a simple "correct or incorrect" on QOTD I have taken my time to explain things as in-depth as I can when responding to people I also try to come across as someone people can approach with questions, I'm not sure it is working out too well as I haven't had any but I'm going to keep trying. QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I currently put QOTD out on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I highkey missed Valentines Day but I'm planning on writing up some questions so I am prepared for upcoming QOTDs. What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I try to do a wide variety, however, I don't know anything about Bedrock so I leave them to Panda, I try to throw in a few clans related ones every now and then as I know many are not familiar with Clans and I don't expect many to get them right but at least I can try to teach them a thing or two. QuotesAyeconic (Mentee): "... The CMP is very helpful and beneficial for those looking to ... help out in the community. It's a fun and friendly environment and a great place to meet some new friends, especially if you are new to the community and Mineplex as a whole. I definitely recommend applying and good luck!" PandaFyre (Mentor): “I’ve been a member of the CMP for over  months, and it’s a great way to get to know other community members. The staff who help mentor and guide you are unique and amazing individuals. I have made so many new friendships, and have learned interesting facts about players and the server. This is a one of a kind program, and I recommend it for anyone who wants to learn about the mineplex community, and make new, amazing friendships.” Final WordsThe Community Mentoring family is unlike other groups on Mineplex. We're very tight-knit and love to hang out and talk to each other all the time. It's an amazing experience and makes the Mineplex experience more social than ever. We know you are going to love being a part of our family. You will grow in so many ways, and the best part is you get to decide how!
