We all know that Mineplex can sometimes be a bit buggy, and sometimes updates can be slow to come out. This thread was not made to insult or mock Mineplex, by the way. These things are very annoying at first - all Bedrock skins are white, people are turning invisible etc - but then you realise how many developers there are. Six. I'm not sure about you, but having only 6 developers on one of Minecraft's biggest servers, which is split by platforms and continents, seems like a terrible idea. No wonder Mineplex has soo many bugs! This begs the questions - why are there only six developers? Can we get more? The first answer may be that the standards are too high, developers aren't trusted, or it's nearly impossible to find the jobs section, to apply for developer. Developer feels like a professional job, held only by the elite. No complaints there, if I'm being honest. But having this method makes the amount of developers very limited, which isn't what you want - you want a diverse pool of talents when developing a server. And I think I might be able to solve the problem. The Developer role will be unedited and untouched. They will remain as the Lead Developers. We could create a new role, Volunteer Developer, or something. I have no good ideas for names right now xD The VDs will not become Backend or Plugin developers, nothing so grand-sweeping, but instead will help develop one particular section. Two could solely work on GWEN, while one aims to reduce lag, while another three are on standby, ready to combat any bugs. You know, focused on particular sections. This is the general idea. The requirements for VD will be less than that of the current developers - the whole aim of this is to increase the number of developers. If you fear they may be immature, preforming the same level of Observation as in Trainee applications, before allowing them on the team. If you think they may be untrustworthy, then make them sign an NDA, or whatever you currently do to make sure your developers don't reveal code. If you aren't sure of their motives then conduct a voice interview, so you can check tone of voice, intention etc. If there are any other possible negatives, please let me know, and I'll explain why I think those negatives don't exist. But of course, I could be completely wrong. This may be a terrible idea, possibly due to reasons I have never thought of. So tell me what you think! I'm writing this just before bed, so some of this might not make sense xD I'll check this thread in about nine hours, so I'll respond to any and all comments then. Have a good night ^-^ Oh one more thing I forgot to mention: they won't have a salary - they're volunteers, just like Moderators. There's no fear of Mineplex struggling to pay them.
