From Holy Cake Movement Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

So you want to help us moderate the HCM services, and keep them friendly and fun? Great! We are always looking for good administrators. Applying for an administrator position is something we highly encourage if you've been with us for a while. However that being said, we do not discourage new applications from new players if you meet our playtime requirements. To start with please read through the steps below to get an idea of what's involved and how to apply.


Playtime Requirements

To find out your playtime, simply type !playtime in the in-game chat to see how many hours you have accumulated. If your time meets or exceeds the value, you're good to continue!

Cinema: 10 Hours

Stranded: 20 Hours

Sandbox: 15 Hours

What we look for

We're looking for mature and experienced players (regardless of age) who understand the responsibility and the powers of server administration and want to successfully manage and protect our servers and the players on them. Applications typically come from players that have been recognized by our current administrators as having administrator potential, which is demonstrated through your actions on our servers. Finally, the most important thing we're looking for is a passion to dedicate time to help our community be the best it can be.

If you think this is you then you're ready to apply!

Application Process

Apply on our Page

Open up this form: Link

You'll have to log in using your Steam account, this will provide us with your steam id that confirms you made the application and makes the process easier for us. Once logged in you'll have to select which server you're applying for, as well as enter your playtime and complete the rest of the questions. Then hit submit and the rest will be up to our administrators to look through.


The application can be pending for upto two weeks. This gives our current administration team time to respond to the application by providing a rating of either +1 (Positive support) or -1 (Against application), as well as the option to provide their written opinion of you. An application typically has to get a rating total of +2 (determined by adding all responses together) for it to be approved. However each application is taken on a case by case basis.

To ensure that an application isn't just left open and waiting for responses that may never appear, we will close any application that hasn't hit the rating threshold within 2 weeks. This would be enough time for any application that should be a definite accept or definite denial, as opposed to an application that is somewhere in between.
