The original three founders of the EpicQuestz server as we know it today. Although the build team by the name of EpicQuestz was first created by Lockrules and a few friends, it was a private affair. The server only opened up as Lockrules became more involved with the Empire War Siege Server, and it's owner, sjoerdtim. Lockrules and sjoerdtim were joined as then-Creators by Only_God, Empire War's premier builder. The first project worked on by this new server was Erebor, and many subsequent projects followed with Lockrules, sjoerdtim and Only_God as EpicQuestz's creators. However, as time moved on a new generation of builders took the helm of the server, and to reflect the original three's changing position, they have been allocated the rank of "Founder".
The two current Creators on EpicQuestz are Tobberz and Gelek. The word "creator" refers to the fact that it is this rank that initiates projects, manages the general server direction, and effectively administrates the server as a whole. This is an unobtainable rank, and it is to a Creator you should take any queries about the server as a whole.
Managers help the Creators organise the build team, and supervise Builders working on projects. Although it would be wrong to consider them Moderators, when nescesary they do undertake such duties beyond simply organising projects. Managers are not appointed on their building merit, but rather their ability to get things done.
Artist is the highest achievable rank based on skill at building. Artists are well trusted members of the team, and have extensive permissions in order to allow them all the tools nescesary to build to the best of their abilities. There is no clear line between staff and normal players on EpicQuestz, but one could consider Artist the lowest staff rank. Attained by: More substantial advice coming soon...
Designers are the rank directly above Builder, and are appointed for merit in creating both structures and terrain. Any new player can be sure that a Designer's advice will be valuable. Designers have access to the freebuild world, as well as being able to build on the Middle Earth world itself. Attained by: One exceptional plot in the "largeplots" world. Builders cannot add or trust other people to this large plot, so we can be sure it is completely individual work. Furthermore, you must show a dedication to the server and an active presence and enjoyment working on projects.
This is the default building rank. Builders can build on active projects, and carry out important building jobs for higher ranks. Builders have full access to VoxelSniper and WorldEdit within allowed regions. Attained by: A second, better plot in our "plots" world, building on the advice you received after promotion to Apprentice. Ideally it will be in a different style.
An intermediate rank between Novice and Builder. It is allowed three plots in the "plots" world, and can add people to plots in order to better give you advice whilst online. Attained by: One good plot in our "plots" world, done on your own and without help. This is so we can see your standard of building before giving you further advice.
This is the default rank you will have after a succesful whitelist application. It is allowed two plots in the "plots" world, but cannot trust or add anyone to the plot. Attained by: An application here.
