When it comes to bedrock staff, it is frustrating how big of a gap in the knowledge they have compared to Java staff and it's something I noticed when I was staff. Obviously, they're two different team's but many things are catered towards Java and it's obvious within StM as most of them are main Java. I notice some are really good for bedrock, and I know some people will comment that "level doesn't mean they don't play" but it doesn't change the fact you can tell they value one platform far more over than the other. Not to say that all of them are like this, I know some prefer creative housing and survival, but to be that low of a level on bedrock is still notable. Bedrock hardly gets special or equal treatment. Anyone who denies that is either not a sole bedrock staff member or a bedrock community member. GWEN on Java cannot even be compared to GWEN on Bedrock considering GWEN does absolutely nothing productive on Bedrock. It's impossible to moderate on bedrock due to the lack of in-game report systems and cross-platform difficulties when it comes to reporting by other means. Considering the age range is lower, expecting them to use discord/forums effectively is a bit unreasonable, but that's a confirmed implement- who knows when it'll ever get implemented though. Observations work in a way that doesn't effectively work on bedrock, I can't detail that since I don't plan on being NWB, but something of that sort needs to be looked into better because people can come across amazingly in apps and interviews, but be terrible in practice. Honestly, there needs to be someone training them who is wholeheartedly dedicated to bedrock. Java-bedrock cross mentoring is good in theory to bridge the staff gaps but most StM is far more invested in Java. It's natural to have a preferred platform but there's clearly more time spent on one than the other. I found playing with my mentor and other java staff crucial for how I performed on the team, it boosted my motivation to learn and those around me helped me out so that I became more aware of what was going on and how to handle situations. Observing others truly made it better: bedrock staff members don't get this experience to the same degree at all, not just because there's fewer of them, but because not all the mentors are as equally invested as they are. They're good mentors, but to say how the system is now is perfect for bedrock staff would be a lie. Java staff benefit far more than the others and bedrock staff simply don't get that experience and I think that it does affect how they learn. I did talk to some ex bedrock staff about this way back when we were staff together and I remember there being some form of petition or whatnot to have a bedrock dedicated mentor, something which I agree with but it seems to be denied a lot, as to why, I'd love to hear an StM members response to this. If not a bedrock dedicated mentor, I'd hope to see at least one mentor or MA who is a bedrock main.
