I have noticed there are a lot of players who question the role of volunteers, and even certain player roles. So many, that I feel that making a quick thread about it, will hopefully improve how players will react towards volunteers, and staff members, and even players, as well as know the differences. Below is all the roles on Lifeboat, listed from highest to lowest (permissions wise).
[Owner] - The official owner of Lifeboat Network / Hydreon corporation. The only user with this role currently is “Hydreon”, also known as Rein Teder. He can be found every few days on the server, testing the Kim chatbot.
[Dev] - An official developer within the Lifeboat Network, they create the minigames and awesome cosmetics for the server, as well as a lot of work in the back-end fixing bugs, adding new features and more! This is a paid position within the Lifeboat Network.
[Staff] - An official member of staff within the Lifeboat Network, anyone with a staff role has a paid position within the server, and helps play a key role. This could be coordinators, content producers, or administrators.
[Mod] - The red moderator tag means that the user is a Sr. Moderator. They have been on the server for longer than a year. Sr. moderators don’t receive any extra commands or permissions than they had as a moderator.
[Mod] - Anyone with this tag represents the Lifeboat Network as a volunteer moderator. They help to make sure players follow the servers guidelines, and punish players who break them. They can usually be found across the network, and you can even apply to become one if you think you’re up to it!
[Beta] - A Beta Tester plays a key importance within the server, helping to identify bugs or exploits, and report them to the development team. If you ever find a bug within the network, then just mention anyone with this tag, and they will try to replicate it and report it for you!
[Crew] - Crew members are another important role within the team, consisting of translators, skin designers, artists and even moderators in training. While this role doesn’t have any extra permissions, anyone with this role helps with their own individual tasks, and helps show than anyone with this tag is an official volunteer for the network.
[Map] - This tag is specifically for members of the official Lifeboat Build Team. They help to build maps for the server as well as the Minecraft marketplace.They do not receive any special commands or permissions, but they have a cool tag!
[YouTube] - A player who is recognised as a YouTuber on the network. They don’t receive any extra commands or permissions currently. To apply for this tag you must have 2,000 or more subscribers on your YouTube channel, as well as at least 5 videos containing Lifeboat content.
[VIP] Anyone with this tag has helped to support the server. They also get access to exclusive cosmetics within the server, such as particles, vehicles and even mounts! There are three kinds of VIP, lifetime on Survival Games, Prison Pass on Prisons, and UberVIP for every other gamemode including Prison and Survival Games.
Note: UberVIP’s can also have the tags [GOAT], or [MVP].
[Discord] - Anyone that is seen around the server with this role is part of our official Discord server (https://lbsg.net/discord) and recieve a cool tag, as well as Discord particles! Pretty cool if you ask me, and who is gonna knock free particles and a tag!
“Hazard DutchAD” (Players) - The standard role for guests and players within the network, they are what make the server extra special and fun. They don’t have a tag, although each one plays a key importance within the network.
Hopefully this helps you all to understand the roles that everyone plays within the network, and if you ever want to contribute even more, you can become an official volunteer at https://lbsg.net/volunteer-positions!
