Looking for Active, Motivated Staff

Who are we?


Explorer's Bay is a survival server that provides an adventurous and fun Minecraft experience with a relaxed and enjoyable environment, friendly community, and dedicated staff.

Our community is small, friendly and welcoming. We are growing, and we are a fun & adventurous bunch. Explorer's Bay is a survival server with McMmo, Quests, Jobs, Ranks, and more. One thing that is different about our server is we have our main world protected with Grief Prevention. We have it this way to preserve our world and builds and it lets players grow and explore around their bases at their own pace. We have resetting worlds - the resource, nether and end. Players are able to collect as many resources as they want in these resetting worlds.

Being a new server, we are in need of more enthusiastic staff personnel; we are seeking to fill our staff team. We want our players to enjoy our server with kind, active and mature staff that act professionally, but also punish players accurately and accordingly when needed to do so. Most of all, we would hope that both our staff and players all have fun and are engaged in being part of our welcoming community.

      Our discord has a channel where the staff applications are.

      https://discord.gg/d3kTuqR


      We are always interested in more staff with those that are looking to help us with the server and community.


      I am often asked about people that are interested in being staff, however I do want to make it clear that it is recommended that you join our community, play a bit and get to know how our server runs before applying for staff.


      Too many times I get asked by someone new for a staff position, however they have never joined us or played, and they insist on being staff. When I suggest they check out the server and our community, they get upset and leave.

      I don't understand this?


      If you like survival servers, and are an active player and want to help out our community and be an active part of a wonderful staff team, then please do check us out. All staff positions start off as helpers and work their way up.

      We have a wonderful community with fun and welcoming players - come check us out!

      If you are seeking a staff position, you are welcome to check out our server and see if it a right fit for you. We do ask that staff are active players.

      We are a survival server with some added fun things such as Decorative Heads, McMmo, Jobs, Quests, and much more!

      We have a great community that loves to do things together. We are an all ages server, but most of our players are older players.

      Our server is fairly new, it opened 2 months ago, and we just recently switched to a dedicated server.

      We have a small community, but it's like a big family!
