EpicQuestz uses a dual system of server Ranks and Project Roles. Both are explained in-detail below – but you can find more information on how our projects are organised and how the server operates in the Guides section of our Forums.
Our ranks are split up into three sections – Staff, Members, and non-Members. Each of these sections contains two ranks, and they are explained below. Ranks and the rank hierarchy operate across the entire server, but mainly come into operation outside the structure of a project – see the Project Roles guide on the forums for more.
Administrator is the highest rank of the server, and three people hold this rank – Tobberz, Gelek and StealWonders. They steer the overall direction of the server, make major decisions on projects, lead the release of maps to the public, and oversee current projects.
Two of these Administrators (Tobberz & Gelek) hold the rank of “Creator”. This is the traditional leadership rank of EpicQuestz that we’ve had for the past 8 years. Creators concentrate on in-game leadership and administration. Conversely, StealWonders holds the rank of “System Administrator”, as he concentrates on running server systems outside Minecraft (plugins, website, etc).
Designer is the principle staff building rank. It is the highest achievable build-oriented rank for normal players, and in many ways is the bridge between the Leadership and the rest of the build team. Designers effectively have all permissions they need to get the job done, and play a major role in leading projects.
Artist is the highest Member rank, and they have access to a few extra perks – for instance access to the Freebuild world and extra plots. Artists are appointed for having skill above and beyond that of a normal builder – but often specifically in a particular area such as terrain, or a certain mode of building. Artists can also lead minor projects in order to prove their abilities and perhaps be promoted to Designer. For a Builder to be promoted to Artist it is necessary that they build one exemplary plot in the Large Plots world.
Builder is the standard Member rank, and it is once a player has achieved this rank that they can help out on EpicQuestz projects. Builder is achieved by taking part in a short trial period in which they demonstrate their capacity to work on projects. Builders can also claim one plot in the Large Plots world, which will count towards their promotion to Artist.
There are two Non-Member ranks – Guest and Traveller. Guest is the rank every player has when they first join the server, and can claim up to two plots in the Standard Plots world. A Guest can be promoted to Traveller if they make one good plot in this world, and then a Traveller can be promoted to Builder after a short trial period in which they demonstrate their capacity to work on projects.
