These guidelines are for both staff and members to comment on staff applications. Since we think it's important for members to also voice their opinions.

1. When staff members respond to an application, there should be only 4 valid responses

a. Vouch (with or without justification) and if there is justification it should be factual (e.g. the applicant is always helpful with grief investigations, the applicant help others, etc.). Alternatively, you can also vouch by liking (thumbs up) the post (application) or by liking vouches.

b. Object (with or without justification) and if there is justification it should be factual (e.g. the applicant is too inexperienced, the applicant didn't answer all the questions, the applicant is a griefer, etc.). Using dramatic terms like "strongly object" should be avoided unless you have 'strong' reasons that are stated (e.g. the applicant threatened DDOS the server). If you object and provide no reason, it should be of little consideration - better to up vote an objection that includes reasons you agree with. Also, objections that are based on the distant past should be avoided in favor of how the player is performing currently. Last, do not use object in cases where you don't know or haven't seen the applicant online - that is what neutral is for.

c. Neutral. If you can't vouch or object. Normally used when you don't know the applicant at all or well enough to make a decision. Also, neutral is just that; don't use contradictory terminology like neutral leaning to object / vouch; if you're learning, use object or vouch. Again, to avoid clutter and echoing, you can simply up vote any neutral comment that you agree with.

d. Ignore the application (i.e. do input or reply). This is a case where you might have a conflict of interest such as you're competing for the same promotion.
