How our Ranks Work

Cubed’s motive since our launch in 2013 has been to supply ranks that grant true purpose and meet the requirements of an ever-changing community. To keep up with this tradition, we have taken our ranks and reviewed them heavily, deciding that simplicity is our best direction. Throughout this post, you can learn about each rank and the benefits they hold. All permissions from each rank are inherited by the rank that precedes it. Such as, Builder inherits all Visitor permissions.

Visitor

Visitor is our default rank. When you first join our Minecraft server, you will be awarded this rank. This rank supplies you with the most essential tools and commands, and does not grant you basic building permissions.

  • Permissions
    Visitor grants access to visiting worlds, player teleportation, menu usage, setting homes and access to the Dynmap. You can build in region claims within the Permia world if a builder, specialist or curator adds you to their region using /trust. Visitors will not have Worldedit or Voxel, regardless of whether they can build in a claim or not.

  • How do I progress?
    To move forward from Visitor, your next rank would be Builder. To progress to Builder you must first successfully /apply and be accepted by a staff member. You can find the application here.


Builder

Builder is our first member rank. When you’re accepted after applying here, you will be given the Builder rank. This rank supplies you with personal tools, featured commands and grants you basic building permissions.

  • Permissions
    Builder grants access to building in Permia and Flat. Often Curators will have private worlds which may afford building access. To build in Permia, you must first claim a region of land using a golden shovel to set position 1 & 2, both being the far corners of the region. To learn more about claiming, see this post here. Builders and above are granted full Worldedit and VoxelSniper permissions to assist them with daily needs.

  • How do I progress?
    To move forward from Builder, you must become a Specialist. To become a Specialist, you must first show dedication to Cubed and a skill set that’s beneficial to the community; primarily the ability to build exceptionally well. Staff will take notice of anyone showing these skills, and promptly contact you to assign the rank.


Specialist

Specialist is our second member rank. This rank is given to you once you’ve shown dedication and skill, while also being a team player - working together is important for our future. This rank supplies you with advanced building permissions.

  • Permissions
    Specialist grants access to building in Andea and other Cubed projects. Cubed’s staff lead major showcase projects, such as Westpoint, to promote our community’s skill and talent. To become part of this process, members must be a Specialist to have build access in these worlds and possess understanding of what’s required in each project. Curators often also lead personal projects or parts of Cubed projects, and as a result will give Specialists various tasks.

  • How do I progress?
    To move forward from Specialist, you must become a Curator. To become a Curator, you must possess excellent leadership talent and the ability to plan projects and tasks substantially. Specialists will be promoted to Curators if they fit the requirements.


Curator

Curator is our final member rank. This rank is given to you once you’ve proven your motivation to make Cubed a better place, and the skill to lead projects efficiently. This rank supplies you with advanced building permissions and the ability to submit new worlds and large-scale projects.

  • Permissions
    Curators are a special part of Cubed’s project process. Curators often assist staff with planning and executing project tasks and give Specialists various tasks to meet goals and deadlines. This can be seen in our current project, Andea, where curators are expected to plan districts they lead and assign tasks to any Specialists willing to help. Likewise, Curators can also submit full project ideas to our staff. This can entail from a district in a project to a full dedicated world if required. If a Curator feels a member deserves Specialist or requires build access in their project, they have the authority to request a promotion from Helpers and Staff,

  • How do I progress?
    Very few will move on from this rank. The next rank is Helper, which is assigned to long-term members who have helped our community the greatest and shown maturity and understanding of what it means to be helpful.


Helper

This is a self-explanatory rank. This rank is given to the best of our community. This rank supplies you with basic moderation permissions and the ability to promote Specialists.

  • Permissions
    Helpers are the step below staff. They are the Staff’s eyes and ears when they aren’t present. By having basic moderation permissions and a great understanding of Cubed, they can deal with most issues that arise on the server. Helpers have full access to Cubed’s projects and can authorise the promotions of Builder to Specialist if requested by a Curator. Helpers can also start their own projects on authorisation from Staff. If the need arises, we may sometimes open applications for the Helper rank to recruit new members to the role.

  • How do I progress?
    There is no progression beyond this rank. If staff are required, all members and visitors have the opportunity to apply once the occasion arises.
