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, 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 manager (Its_tims or Marzie). If you don't receive a response to your message within two weeks, please give your application a friendly bump. 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." 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. 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? Marzie, AGLThree, and ZTB.

(Note: QOTD's and QOTW's mean Questions of the Day and Questions of the Week) About me: ¡Hola! I'm Marzie/Marz/Mar. I do a lot around Mineplex. I'm an Event Squad, Ex-Forum Ninja, Forum Mod, Ideas Team, and Reports Patrol Assistance. I am also the staff events manager, CMP co-lead and the Mineplex website QA. IRL I'd say I don't really do much. I love going to the beach in the summer and just playing video games 24/7. I also have 6 cats, used to have 7 but one sadly passed away. My favorite color is a mix between blue and purple. Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: I love seeing mentees from CMP get promoted to Trainee and work towards their own goals they set for themselves, which may just be about improving themselves. Mentoring style: In my style of mentoring/helping, I let my mentees really pick and choose what they want to do. I offer QOTDs (Questions of the day), QOTWs (Questions of the week), and activity logs. Activity logs aren't required at all, but I do expect my mentees to do either the QOTW or QOTD. What I do as a Mentor: I will be doing my best to help people that want forums help and want to give good customer service. Of course, I will also be helping mentees do customer service and other things in-game, but my main focus is the forums. QOTD's, QOTW's or both: I do both. What type of questions do I ask my mentees: Anything from forum rules, where to go when player asks about certain things, sub-team/sr.mod team questions, in-game rule questions (java), basically anything in between. Not all questions are about rules. 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: I'm narwhal and I'm a moderator on reports patrol and an MA on CMP. I try my best to be as helpful as I can and I am usually here for anyone that needs to talk about something if they need it. I try my best to be as kind as I can. I mainly just play games for fun and my favorite food is Spaghetti and the color Red. I'm a 19-year-old college student who is now in debt. My biggest strength would be how understanding I am and my biggest weakness would be my social anxiety issues. Favorite part of CMP/Mineplex: My favorite part about Mineplex is how great this community is and the staff team is pretty epic as well. Mentoring style: I'm definitely more casual and laid back. What I do as a Mentor Assistant: Make sure they understand their mistakes and hopefully help them enjoy their time here. QOTD's, QOTW's, or both: QOTWs What type of questions do I ask my mentees: All questions are for Java, and I mainly ask about rules knowledge on the server, I don't go into forums too much. 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: 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 trainee on Mineplex and an MA on CMP! I am not on any sub teams as of yet, but I am hoping to join some soon! 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! I am 15 and going into year 10 in 2020. On the weekends, I'm usually with friends or family, but I make sure to always have a weekend to myself when I think I need one. 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. 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 (Ex-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!
