Being a Mini Admin puts you on the frontlines of community engagement, gamemode patrolling and rule enforcement. Aside from that, you are there to make sure the people who play our games are having the best possible experience. So if someone has a question or an issue, you will be the first to respond and offer assistance. Key duties include but are not limited to:
- Patrolling your assigned gamemodes, in this case SMASH;
- Helping players with problems or questions;
- Keeping an eye on external communication platforms (e.g. TeamSpeak, Discord etc.)
There are a couple criteria which you have to fulfill in order to be eligible to become an admin. These are:
- Being able to record videos (doesn't have to be fancy, just clear);
- You are mature and helpful towards other players;
- Know key mechanics, be up-to-date with updates and changes of your gamemode;
- Be reliable - you will have access to confidential materials which we expect you to keep secret.
Good luck to all applicants!
On behalf of all of the Shotbow staff team, I wish you a very happy new year. While 2017 had its ups and downs, we are pleased to say that we have a lot in store for 2018! We are all very excited to present our awesome projects to you – some of which have been in the works for weeks, months, and even years. Here's a small teaser, as well: we're working to bring two new games to Shotbow this year - one that you're expecting and one that you're not!
In celebration of 2018, use XP code 2018 for a nice surprise! On that note, please enjoy our first New Moon of 2018.
This December, we hosted the Christmas event for 2017, which was super fun! Some of the things we had include: a brand new winter hub, winter-themed game maps throughout all of our games, MineZ events like the head hunt and traveling snowman, the breathtaking SMASH update, brand new Christmas cosmetics (including our first balloons), and so much more! We hope you enjoyed the Christmas event – please let us know in a comment something that you loved about it and something that you'd like to see next year!

Greetings! You may or may not have heard that Mojang has been recently working on a new version of Minecraft: 1.13. While it has no set release date, we believe that it will be released soon. It will focus mainly on bug fixes, technical features, and optimization of Minecraft, such as command block updates, command updates, and much more. You can read more about it on Minecraft Wiki.
Today, we're here to ask you, the community, whether or not you think Shotbow should support Minecraft version 1.13 when it is to be released.
Disclaimer #1: Please note that the majority vote may not necessarily be the option we end up going with, but we'd like some feedback as to what you guys think!
Disclaimer #2: Please note that Shotbow is not reverting to any version pre-1.9 under any circumstances. Any comments posted suggesting this may be deleted at staff discretion.
If you have a preference in regards to the Minecraft versioning, please tell us what you prefer about your preferred version. The poll will close in two weeks' time. Votes are anonymous, and staff members are encouraged to vote. We value your feedback – thank you for your time, and thanks for flying Shotbow!
Until next time,
Mistri & the Shotbow PR Team
