How do I become a moderator / staff?

We're always accepting moderator (staff) applications. It is not possible to apply for the senior moderator rank or any other non-moderator rank.

Please note that we will never randomly contact users about available staff ranks. If you received a message on Skype, Twitter or any other platform asking for your login details, this is a scam attempting to steal your account.

How to Apply

You can apply at our Google form located HERE. Please make sure you fully read the form and FAQ below, so you know what to expect from our process.

After applying

Please do NOT ask moderators ANY questions about the status of your application, as they have no access to this information.

Please note there are many fake Hive Skype accounts out there. If you are added on Skype you will be notified by @ItsWillBarlow on Twitter, there are no exceptions to this. An easy way to check if the Twitter account is real is by checking the amount of followers it has (20.000+).

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I applied for mod, when will I hear back?
A:
We will get a LOT of applications, and as such it is not possible to reply to everyone. Only successful applications receive a response.

Q: How long are applications open for?
A:
 One form will be open for at least 6 months (no exact closing date) but you could hear back at any point (even months later after applying).

Q: Can I ask mods or any staff how my application is going?
A:
No. They do not know how your application is going, asking any staff in game or elsewhere will actually hurt your chances of becoming a moderator. This also includes contacting Will or tweeting @ItsWillBarlow in an attempt to get your application replied to, seen or accepted ahead of other applicants.

Q: I applied on the old application form, do I have to apply again?
A:
Yes. We have added many new questions since the previous application form to help us find the best applicants. Any applications on the old application form will not be contacted from now on.

Q: If I get accepted, what will happen next?
A:
 IF you are accepted for an interview you will be contacted by me on Twitter @ItsWillBarlow and added on Skype where I will mention your secret word you added to your application. From there we will interview on the Hive teamspeak (ts.hivemc.com)

Q: I'm younger the required minimum age for mod, should I still apply?
A:
IF you are younger than 14 and you still want to apply for moderator you can apply if you want to do so but the chances of you being accepted/ contacted would be low to non-existent. As we have a minimum age for mod for a reason. Also please do not contact us asking to be the exception to this rule.

Q: I don't have Hive premium can I still apply?
A:
 Yes! We are interested in getting the best people regardless of in-game rank.
