This is pretty obvious, but I thought I would add it anyway. Follow these tips, but also use common sense. For instance, does common sense tell you that if you bug staff members and drive them crazy, they will want to approve your mod app even more? Of course not, so follow these tips and use common sense.
You should be capable of understanding English to the finest and not need to use a translator to co-operate.
You should be able to cope with the task you've been given by a higher staff member and you should be able to respect what has been laid down in-front of you.
Need help with something? Well, try to find it in this category. If you can't find it, I recommend creating the page yourself. If it's a question that you need help with, go ahead and contact a staff member.
