    They should verify it by some kind of ID or something like that.

    Yeah. If every human in this planet could apply where ever or order stuff online with fake id, then every company would be screwed. So age confirm is maybe the easiest part in this.

    Yet there are autobreakers.
    Literally illegal, no point even bringing this up

    But also if you socialize, chances are you should know the game, like building stuff, splicing recipes, the rules and growtopia code etc.
    Do you seriously believe this is all it takes? There is a LOT to know about how the game works, how would someone act upon somebody exploiting a specific game feature for instance when they've never even heard of it? Trust me, with everybody just pilling up in trade worlds the average time spent by people to actually try out each single feature the game offers the actual amount of people who know about the game is poor.

    I think years and hours played are more important, and I think would be a better criteria for a authority figure who is supposed to help the community. Like Business people can be committed too, not just farmers right?
    Of course they are but with such a reasoning you may aswell have had afked all of your hours, therefore additional requirements to the scale of the application of which they will receive thousands of submissions you'd expect to have high standards and not something literally most of the current daily players suit such criteria

    With all the commotion, I think this application is a bait. Not sure for what, though.

    And they should probably change the game's theme to "Grow, Trade, Moderate". Since everybody complains about "Punch", farming and levels. Only few "Build" with passion now and everyone wants to become a mod for some reason.

    Mehehe.

    Ive seen crazy stuff go down before, and high leveled autos acting like they played the game lol.

    yes but alright. First, I think that's really minimal like what I wrote. But also what I meant more was, also it's funny for people to say they played for 2 months. Like are you going to understand the community, why different rules are made, what the community need and wants to what can be given, being able to identify solutions to help cope with illegal activity and exploits, that isn't just banning and punishing? Like there are people who afk and the hours still clock, but really what about people who farms and farm only? Level that's it. Like I don't see how someone who plays for 2 months can understand the game enough, not to be mean but there really is alot of stuff. Im just saying, it's pretty practical to insert hours too and days played, tho it has flaws similar to leveling, but it's also better than having a guy who just started the game a week ago apply right?

    answered in quote. Also just to add to it, what I listed of knowing the game really is the tip of the iceberg to it. But still better than having a new player apply too. Like it's one thing to know mechanics and stuff by watching YouTube, it's another to experience the game, along with it's community as a whole

    • 2 years of gameplay

    I agree. I used to have a really low level, just because I didn't farm much for a while when they first added levels. Only recently (lol, like 2 years ago I mean), when I started farming more, did I finally surpass level 60.

About 5 hours of doing a star voyage every minute.

    [ 50 Base + 200 Star + 300 Chaos ] * [ 1.25 Egg * 1.09 Wisdom * 1.1 Wisdom] = 824.3125 XP

    Sorry for being a smart alec.

    Or the easier way - just buy a bunch of farms from other people and harvest them, and you'll be there in a matter of hours.
    Much quicker than wasting more world locks on startopia tools lol.
    Nice maths, but I hope nobody is getting level 60 only because they want to apply...

    It's not just about maturity. At a young age, your family's decisions and your education are often prioritised over your own decisions. You can't be as reliable in the future. Sure though, some under-16-year-olds would be great Guardians.

    I'm really curious about how they evaluate applicants if the application itself is so brief and unimformative. I suppose they can see forum posts and game activity. I am a little creeped out that they probably check chat logs too (do they?) but I have nothing to hide, haha. There's going to be sooo many applicants, it will be hard to sort through them with so few questions.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I was very surprised by the kind of questions they asked. Random trivia about the game (which, if you really didn't know, I'm sure someone could just Google). Then the question about casinos, out of all things, was interesting. I think it is just a sample, but can they really judge the player of their answer to that multiple choice box? Kudos to those who have to sort these applications. I do kinda hope, however, that they don't run automatic filters on any of the multiple choice questions, since really great players could fail some of the weird trivia.

    I would just like to remind you all that this application is nothing but a basic screening to ensure those who are interested meet the requirements and have basic knowledge about the game to remove trolls/alts ect.

    Realistically, Ubisoft doesn't have time to go through tens of thousands of applications, so basic requirements are set to cut down the total number. You may not like them but if there are no requirements it would be impossible to go through everything.

    After all the surveys are collected, they will be automatically filtered into potential candidates and those who failed by answering the questions in an unfit manner (thus why just about every question was multiple choice). After these have been screened through automation, I have a feeling those who passed the screening will receive an email with a more in-depth survey to the email linked to your growID, where they will have a much smaller number of applicants to look through in a larger manner.

    You must look at the big picture when considering these things, a group of ~30 staff members is not capable of sorting through tens of thousands of applications manually in a short period of time.
