Not Planned Subteams

  1. Wazzup everyone

    So I am sure that I am not the only person that wants to join a subteam. The problem that I'm seeing is that I don't see a efficient way to publicize that a specific subteams application is open. I've asked the question to staff in-game and most of them respond with 'Just be active on the forums'. This isn't really helpful because the mineplex forums have a LOT of different categories and it's hard to navigate to find a specific thread. My idea is this: Create a new category locked for only subteam leads located at the front of the forums page where they can post about when you can apply for a subteam and also have the link to apply. This idea would make it much easier for people to know when a subteam application is open so they don't miss it before it closes (I missed the QAT application by 1 week :/). There could also be an option where whenever a subteam lead posts something, Players get an alert if they allow it.

    I don't see anything bad that could come from this idea and it definitely would lead to more players being able to join subteams and participate more in the mineplex community!

    Thank you

  3. having a separate category for subteam announcements would be nice but currently they're posted in server discussion, you can see all of them by going to the menu at the bottom and making the prefixes only show as "official" so that's an easy way to find them.

  4. bit confused about your instructions because I don't see anything at the bottom of server discussion but i'll figure it out!

  5. continuing on with what @ScarletBlood37 said, you can go back on posts in the “Server Discussion” category and anything having to do with sub teams will have a green “Official” tab next to it.

  6. I personally think these updates could possibly fall under the 'Recruitment' section of the forums that we already have. However, these threads could be marked with an 'Official' tag (like they are in server discussion), so that they will stand out from other threads posted there.

  7. I think that if you’re truly invested and wanting to join a specific team then you should be on the lookout and keep yourself involved and informed through the various platforms of communication. I don’t necessarily agree with the idea of publicizing team applications, because those who go out of their way to pursue a subteam are likely more qualified, and the current system discourages people from just filling every form in sight in hopes to join something.

  8. In my experience, if we have a subteam that only opens occasionally, it is announced on our Mineplex Discord server when it is opening. If you're joining a subteam, I can almost guarantee you will be required to join a Discord server related to the productivity of that team, so it shouldn't be a problem to have/create a Discord account and keep an eye out on the Announcements channels. That could keep you more informed about network changes and subteam openings.

    You could also reference the Server Discussion section like others have mentioned, or check back with the open applications at https://www.mineplex.com/apps

    Here's a screenshot explaining how to filter the Server Discussion section to only see official announcements: https://prnt.sc/unhv4e

    Hope this helps!

  9. Yo!

    Along with only filtering regarding sections, you may also make it where you are able to get notifications for every thread posted in that corresponding section. For example, I made it to where I get an alert on the forums whenever someone posts in General Idea Discussion. This is beneficial so you don't have to check server discussion every day or so, you can easily see if a subteam opened by checking your alerts!

    Moving on with your idea, I don't necessarily agree. I see how it'd be a positive implementation due to some people truly having issues with finding threads, but it'd be better if we kept it to how the "process" is currently. If someone is genuinely dedicated towards joining one of these teams, they'd go out of their way to search for where it will be announced and pay full attention to that area until it does get announced. Like Dulciloquy said, teams do get announced in the Mineplex Discord, but not all of them. For instance, Feedback Collectors isn't announced there, they are only announced in the MCC (Mineplex Community Center) discord. Though this is probably the only subteam (that has applications that close & reopen) similar to this, any team could transfer to a state where they only announce their opening in a discord server that relates the most to it. So, it'd be also good if you join Mineplex official discords so you definitely know when the team opens!

  10. Thread Moved to Website Feedback

    Mixed feelings about the idea, on one hand the people above have given great ways to stay notified about subteam openings. I think the best way is to stay up to date on the Discords, since most applications are posted there, and you would get notified for it.

    While subteam application openings do have the official tag on them, personally I wouldn’t expect someone who isn’t too active on the forums to constantly check server discussion to see if the subteam they’re wanting to join has opened. Especially when it can take over 6 months for teams to re-open. I understand the argument that people who are dedicated to joining that team will constantly keep an eye out for applications opening, but if they are/aren’t really passionate about joining the team, that’ll be evident in their application.

  11. We won't be adding a subteam section to the forums.

    Typically when any community team opens it is announced in the MPD (Mineplex Discord) or other Mineplex Discords if applicable. They are also announced in the proper section on the forums. We recommend you keep an eye on the "updates" section in the MPD for future applications. You will need to be on Discord anyways for most or all of these subteams, so it's best you are there anyways.

    This will be locked as it needs no further feedback. Message me with questions or concerns.
