    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, so you MUST be 13 or older to apply. 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?
    Do you have a specific Mentor you would like to be under?

    BUT WAIT - Don't feel comfortable posting your application publicly on this thread? You can send your application to a Marzie. If you don't receive a response to your message within two weeks, please give your application a friendly bump.

    What 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." BUT we do have some shoutouts on mineplex.com/bat2, so we have some connections with Recruitment. (Thanks Firestar!)
    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 person yourself, help you achieve goals here on Mineplex or other things, and generally help you learn more about Mineplex in every aspect we can. It may or may not help you get Trainee. That depends on if/how you participate and what goals you set for yourself.
    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 24-48 hours after the LAST person applied (unless Marzie is away, then it may be longer).

    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. If you are a StM or MA for Mineplex already, you cannot become a CMP Mentor/MA. 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!
    Feel free to message any of the leads or mentors with anything you need!

    Who are the current mentors?
    AGLThree, Siccle, and Epicbuilder435.

    Who are the current mentor assistants?

    Animalll is under AGLThree
    Wolfayy is under Siccle
    Tilgorn is under Epicbuilder435
    Hiccuping is under Siccle

    Who are the mentees currently in this program and who are they under?




    Meet the Mentors and Mentor Assistants!
    Here you can learn about all the Mentors and Mentor Assistants that you can get assigned to. When we message you with an acceptance application this may help you see who you'd rather have than the person we paired you with! (Note: QOTD's and QOTW's mean Questions of the Day and Questions of the Week)

    About me: Hey! My name is AGLThree and I am a Sr. Mod on Mineplex! I'm part of the fabulous Recruitment team and also am on Reports Patrol Assistance and Newsletter. 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, as well as run cross country and other activities. I love to hang out with my friends, whether we're listening to music, studying, going out, or just hanging around In school, I'm currently a tenth grader (sophomore) and I love my chemistry and precalculus classes, as well as pretty much every other class I'm in. I’m interested in math and science fields due to the fact that I’m hoping to pursue a career in medicine. 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.
    Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: Both the CMP and Mineplex have communities with a wide variety of people and that is 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. Game-wise, though, I’m a huge fan of Mixed Arcade and Super Smash Mobs.

    Mentoring style: I would say my mentoring style is casual but I will push my mentees to get the best experience that they can! I do require activity in my mentee group, though I let mentees mostly decide what this means for them. I think it’s extremely important to see effort from my mentees in terms of accomplishing these goals, but I also understand that socializing is equally important and that fun is a huge part of the experience!
    What I do as a Mentor: I let my mentees mostly decide what their experience is going to look like. I ensure that my mentees have free choice in what they want to do in the CMP, how much of that they want to do, and what their good work should look like, and from there, I just encourage my mentees to the best of my ability and step in with helpful advice or just fun conversation. I send out QOTDs, QOTWs, and I do pretty extensive activity logs depending on whether or not the mentee wants them.
    QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I do both QOTDs and QOTWs but depending on the mentee’s activity elsewhere, these may or may not be required.
    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 MIneplex all around. Typically, my questions are Java-focused, but I do slip in some forums and Discord questions, and occasionally, a Bedrock question.

    About me: Hi! I’m ZTB, but you can call me Zach! I’m currently a Sr. Mod on the Social Media team, and also a member of Reports Patrol Assistance (RPA) and the Content Creator Council (CCC). I’m relatively reserved, but once I get to know someone I’m a very casual person. I really enjoy theater! I’m currently an Assistant Stage Manager. I’m really dedicated when I enjoy doing something, but I tend to do things at the very last minute.
    Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: My favorite part about both CMP and Mineplex is the amazing community of people that really can’t be found on any other server.

    Mentoring style: I’m relatively casual, and really want my mentees to succeed.
    What I do as a Mentor: To me, communication is key. I want to develop a good relationship with my mentees and help them towards their goals.
    QOTD's, QOTW's or both: Currently both, but we're working towards QOTWs as our primary method of questions.
    What type of questions do I ask my mentees: QOTD/Ws should involve questions from all over the network, both in-game, on the forums, on discord, and other platforms such as the bedrock marketplace and our social media accounts (shameless plug ;D)

    About me: Hi everyone! My name is Sickle, and I am a Moderator on Mineplex. I joined the staff team in February 2019 and am currently on Ideas Team, Event Assistance, and Map Testing Team. Also, I am now Marize's mentoring assistant in the CMP. I would say I am a very passionate person who loves to joke around with friends and have a good time. I have been sailing since I was 8 and am on my school's sailing team and am a Sailing Instructor in the summer. I am 16 and in my Junior year of high school. Obviously, I love gaming/minecraft, but outside of that, I like to play tennis, hang out with friends and family, and watch TV series' and movies. I'd love to hear about your favorite TV show or movie, as I am always looking to find new things to watch! My biggest strength is definitely my sense of humor. I love to tell a good joke or a funny story! My biggest weakness is probably being awkward, but that doesn't usually effect me online as much.
    Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: My favorite part of the CMP is the great support it provides the mentees, no matter what they are looking to accomplish. I personally have the CMP to thank for helping me better myself as a person and a trainee candidate back in late 2018.

    Mentoring style: I would describe my mentoring style as friendly and supportive, but also efficient. My goal is to become great friends with my mentees and provide them with whatever they personally need from me. I would not want them to feel stressed around me, as I am very understanding.
    What I do as a Mentor Assistant: To help my mentees reach their goals, I will start by ascertaining what their goals are, whether they be in the form of a number amount of something, or a more broad and general goal. Then, I will help them keep track of how they are doing with those goals and see if they are encountering any issues.
    QOTD's, QOTW's or both: Although I prefer QOTWs, I can do both.
    What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I like to ask questions that my mentees have never encountered before in order to expand their knowledge and challenge them. The topics of these can be anything at all that is Mineplex knowledge.

    About me: Heyo! My name Wolfayy and I'm currently a Mineplex Senior Moderator on the Forum Ninja team. I'm also a Recruitment Assistant, Event Assistance, Reports Patrol and Map Tester! I'm currently an MA for CMP and that's about it really :D! I'm a very mellow person. I am extremely easy to talk to so if you ever have a question feel free to ask! I also consider myself bubbly and energetic which links into one of my hobbies :eyes:. I absolutely love musical theatre! I am extremely passionate about signing, dancing and acting (not so much the signing, I can't sign at all). I also love rollercoaster :roller_coaster: and if all fails in my first job choice I want to be a Rollercoaster designer. A strength of mine is communication. I am an extremely easy person to talk to! As for my weaknesses it will be my anxiety, and I'd rather not go into detail about it.
    Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: What I love about CMP is how friendly the community is. Everyone who I've spoken to is extremely sweet and helpful!

    Mentoring style: Casual but if a mentee requests something else I can alter to their choice.
    What I do as a Mentor Assistant: If they ever need help with anything I'm there to give advice and help them out to the best of my ability. If they have goals such as reaching Trainee I can help them out with any tips I have.
    QOTD's, QOTW's, or both: I am willing to do both
    What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I'd do a bit of everything. If my mentees have a specific topic they would like they can request it and I'll base questions around it.

    About me: My personality is a very outgoing, and love to speak about irl things. I love to hear stories from people and I love to share stories. I try to make friends wherever I can. I’m dedicated and responsible for commitments I make and I’m overall a guy who just tries to make things fun. Some hobbies I have is I currently work at Chick-Fil-A as a part time worker. I wrestle and play soccer for my school. I’m a junior and taking all advanced classes in school. I love to play board games mostly strategy games along with playing video games. My favorite video games are Civ IV, Factorio, Minecraft and cities skylines. My favorite Mineplex games are Bridges, CW, Sg, and Skywars. I also enjoy Nano. My strengths is I try my hardest at everything I do, whether it’s just responding to someone or whether it’s putting in an a 8 hour shift at Chick-Fil-a. I also think I’m strong at communication skills along with time management skills. My main weaknesses include I’m not very clear on things so I have to repeat myself a couple times. I also am busy sometimes and even with time management skills I still struggle with time a little.
    Favorite Part of CMP/Mineplex: I personally love what CMP does by providing community members who want to gain knowledge or prepare for trainee the chance to do so which is great. I also love Mineplex because the community has been a part of me for so long along with the way some of the minigames play like the bridges, Sg, and skywars,.

    Mentoring style: I’m kind of a mix between casual and laid back, because I’m laid back in certain aspects of things but I can also be a little casual like when it comes to dealing with quotas and meetings and such. For the most part I’m just a laid back type of guy I work well like that.
    What I do as a Mentor Assistant: I can make quizzes to test their knowledge every once in a while, I can meet with them if they want to discuss any goals they have for the future and how I can help them accomplish those goals. I will give them advice on how helpful they are being to the community, if their activity is good and so forth. I can also provide like updates on how they are progressing.
    QOTD's, QOTW's, or both: I would definitely be one to make QOTW and take a question from each part of the Mineplex network.
    What type of questions do I ask my mentees: I would try and ask about every aspect of the Mineplex network whether that’s, new rule changes, what Sev are some rules, what sub teams deal with what, what certain parts of the forums are for, what games are available on bedrock and so forth. I think people will succeed most when they can learn about all aspects of the server.

    About me: Hello! I am Animalll and I am from Australia. I am currently a moderator on Mineplex and an MA on CMP! I am on the Clans Management Assistance sub team (cma)! I would say that I am very laid back and relaxed. I am pretty chill when it comes to everything but exams and assignments, which is when I am a bit more serious. I love going to the beach with friends, it is one of my favourite things to do since I can enjoy the hot weather and water with friends! Strengths: Understanding, Empathetic, Creative, Patient, Trustworthy, Determination. Weaknesses: Can lack confidence at times, Sometimes have trouble asking for help, Organisation (mainly for when I need to find something). If you feel uncomfortable or need help, DM me! I’ll respond ASAP and be more than happy to help :)
    Favorite Part of CMP/Mineplex: My favourite part of CMP is the relaxed community environment. When joining CMP you gain lots of knowledge of the server and there are tons of nice people you can talk to about anything! The community aspect of Mineplex is my favourite part of Mineplex too, because it makes it feel like everyone knows everyone!

    Mentoring style: I would say I will have a very casual and laid back approach for most people. However, I am more than willing to adapt my mentoring style if asked or if I feel it may be necessary.
    What I do as a Mentor Assistant: I make sure to be friends with that mentee and always able to give them lots of advice and guidance to help them achieve their goal. I will right down a goal sheet and check in every month or 2 weeks and ask for progression on these goals to help remind and motivate them.
    QOTD's, QOTW's, or both: I do both.
    What type of questions do I ask my mentees: Forums, Java, Rules, Severity, Filter. Basically everything except bedrock.

    Ayeconic (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 (Ex-Mentor): “I’ve been a member of the CMP for over [6] 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 Words
    The 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! Shoot high, so if you miss … it’s still high?

  5. What is your in-game name? My current username is Peytonb56.

    What country do you live in? United states.

    What are you hoping to get out of participation in the CMP? Currently, I would like to improve in several areas I've had issues with in the past. I'd like to improve my maturity and the way I speak the most. Although, I do have a lot more in mind that I do need to improve on. I've currently got a severity 3 on my player history, I do regret this. I have learned from it, I haven't had a punishment since then. I am trying to not to add onto it as I'd like to move on from it. I'd also like to learn some of the more basics, Such as rule sev's and information so I don't misinform people. I've noticed I have done that once or twice recently and wish to improve in that area.

    How have you already and how do you plan to contribute to the Mineplex community? Currently I have one idea processed and two in discussion. I try my best to do as much reports as I can per day, I usually get 6-10. I'm active in discord and plan to continue to be active within the discord and community. I try my best to answer questions to my best knowledge but as stated above, I need to improve on that area. Anyways, that's all for my application. Thank you for taking the time to read and process it :)

  6. What is your in-game name?
    What country do you live in?

    What are you hoping to get out of participation in the CMP?
    Firstly, I'd like to improve at making more helpful and regular forum posts. I also want to learn to become more patient with people when in-game and to interact with others more on discord, forums and in game. I hope to generally become more knowledgeable about the server and the community, for example, I didn't actually know the CMP was a thing until quite recently.
    How have you already and how do you plan to contribute to the Mineplex community?
    I submit reports when possible (unfortunately everything takes a while to upload fully) and try to help players in game. I plan to get involved more in general on discord, in-game and the forums, which is also something I hope to get better at through participation of the CMP.
    Finally, thanks to whoever's reading my application for your time

  8. I'm not here to apply of course, but I just wanted to let people know that this program is fabulous. I joined this program back in May or June of 2017 and I learned a lot about Mineplex and was able to set realistic goals for myself. My mentor was Vanessa back when she was a part of the program, and I found that she helped me set reasonable activity quotas both on the forums and in-game that helped me to find where I was the most passionate and how I could ensure that my activity was constant and good. After only a few weeks in the program, I felt like I was finding new info about Mineplex and becoming more and more a part of the community. I ended up becoming extraordinarily motivated to reach my full potential through good activity.

    I ended up rejoining the program after I left since I was promoted to Trainee as a CMA (not Clans; it's a mentoring assistance role) several days ago and am definitely enjoying my role! It's a lot of fun to work with people and I'm already meeting cool new community members!

    I'd definitely recommend joining if you're interested in this type of program and even if you're not aiming to maximize your activity or set quotas for yourself, it's a great way to learn about ideas, information, people and yourself!

  9. Mentor Assistant Update

    In order to give people a better and more fair chance at becoming an assistant, *mentors will no longer be picking their assistants*. Instead, assistants will be given to mentors when they request one. People that have been waiting the longest and that are at the top of the list will be given a spot first, rather than people waiting longer and never getting chosen.

    *Exceptions to this:*

    - If the mentor is not on good terms with the person next in line to be an assistant, the assistant will not be put with that mentor and will have to wait until next time. The next assistant (the 2nd in line) will then be chosen, if they are also not on good terms with each other, they will also have to wait a bit longer.

    - If the mentor is uncomfortable (with a very good reason to be uncomfortable or not like them) with the assistant next in line, the same situation will happen as stated above.

    This may be updated with more exceptions in the future.

    What country do you live in? United Kingdom
    What are you hoping to get out of participation in the CMP? I would like to get better at making forums posts that arent just random gobbledegoop and instead making meaningful replies. I think this is efficient as everyone on mineplex is always open to feedback and I want to be that person who delivers it.
    How have you already and how do you plan to contribute to the Mineplex community?
    I am an Ex-Staff member and always am submitting reports for Bedrock as it is an wonderful community :p

  11. What is your in-game name?

    What country do you live in?

    What are you hoping to get out of participation in the CMP?
    First of all, I would like to overall improve my maturity around the server, and be able to make long and organized forum posts. Another thing I would like to improve is overall my socialization in Mineplex, both around the Java edition server, the Bedrock edition server, the forums, and the discord server. And at last, gradually improve my reputation regarding Mineplex.

    How have you already and how do you plan to contribute to the Mineplex community?
    While being on the Bedrock edition server most of the time I have access to my computer, I encounter rule breakers, whom I record using a recorder called "GeForce Experience", which I later upload to YouTube and report the player. So far I sent 2 reports from 2 encounters, which were both accepted yesterday (1/10;2018). I am also active on the forums, and I partake in some questions players have while being on the Java version. I also make suggestions and regular forum posts. Thank you for reading my application, have a good day!

    We should honestly be given a tag on the forums saying “Com Mentor” (community mentor) on the forums or maybe in game as well!

  13. This won't happen as we aren't a Mineplex Official team, and really don't need to be either. We are recognized by Recruitment in the Trainee Train Harder 2 thread that firestar created (thanks fire!). I believe back then they asked for a forum tag and of course it didn't happen, within good reason. This is up to LT really on whether or not they would want to give us a tag here.

  14. Ehh, I don't think this is a necessary. CMP isn't an official Mineplex team, just something created by staff/community members. All other subteam tags on the forums are either for staff teams or official community+ teams. It would also look odd to have mentor tags in-game when no other subteam - or even Sr. Mod team - has one for their specific team.
    Posted Oct 2, 2018
  15. A CoM Mentor tag in-game? :facepalm:, Mineplex isn't like that.

    Medals are for Mod/official CoM subteams
    Tags are for Sr.Mod subteams or Mod/CoM team management
    In-Game Ranks are only for official ranks and will never change unless there's a significant
    Wait Hylore just resigned from GI, gotta go.

  18. We are currently debating whether or not CMP should switch to Discord, or stay on slack. I am thinking to switch so we don't have to have anyone give their email to us, and Discord tags are much more within the Mineplex rules.

    Does anyone have any opinions about this here?
    We would also like to know if it would encourage you to apply for CMP if it was with Discord vs Slack.

  19. I agree with your opinion and think we should move to Discord, one of the reasons you have mentioned being email privacy.
