Here are some of the questions that get asked most about the server.
If your question isn't answered here, you can look through the rest of the wiki, or ask a staff member in game.
Q: How do I rank up?
A: Once you gather enough money for one of our Ranks, submit a rank application on the forums. The first rank is Colonist and it costs $15k.
Q: How do I get a town?
A: Once you reach the Colonist rank (as outlined above), you need to earn 50k and apply for Landlord. Part of that application includes creating your town, so be sure to lay out the area you want to claim with signposts at each corner. For 25k extra you can expand your town from 100x100 to up to 200x200!
Q: Who are staff?
Q: How do I join staff?
A: Staff requirements and basic info can be found on the forums. When applications are open, anyone ranked Colonist+ can apply to join the staff team. Staff applications are private and only viewable by staff members. However, there is a list of current applicants and if you have information you think could impact a particular staff application decision, there is a form to submit that information in a way that can only be seen by the server owners.
