Maybe you want perks, commands, popularity, or even power. Maybe you applied for staff on a server for the first time, or perhaps not. Maybe you are staff on a server, or perhaps even an owner or co-owner. Maybe you don't want to apply for staff because you don't want too many responsibilities. Whether you are already staff or if you applied/are applying for staff, or that you think it's not your thing, it isn't as simple as you think. Often times, we like to assume that something is good or bad by seeing the outside of something or someone. Often times, we believe that the truth is only what we see. No, it isn't all about power, perks, popularity, and fun, but it is also not all stress and responsibilities. It is an experience; it is an opportunity; it is a balance of both responsibilities and fun.

Being staff can be a valuable life experience. It can help you learn how to be more responsible, how to help others, how to perform certain tasks, and more. If you think you don't have to do anything and just have fun and appear as "better" than everyone else, then you've got the whole idea wrong. If you are staff on a server already, then you should take the opportunity to meet new people and learn. Make it meaningful, it's not just about fun. At the same time, not everything about it is about responsibilities and stress either. While you are staff, it can be enjoyable as well because you get to meet new people, find new friends, gain experiences, and more. Personally, my favorite thing about being staff on a server is helping players. It is a really nice feeling when you get to help someone else. It feels rewarding and maybe even better than getting a gift yourself. It feels nice to be able to make a difference, even if it is just a small difference. It feels nice to make someone else's day better and make them feel welcomed.

In the end, the true meaning of staff can depend from person to person, but it does not necessarily mean entirely stress nor entirely fun. To me, it is the balance between responsibility and enjoyment. Responsibility does not necessarily have to be stressful. Don’t you think it feels nicer to make someone’s day better than just your own?

That is so true. I know a lot of people who are just here for the perks.

True. But kids dig power.
