Hello Pre Whitelisting Family!
Kernels here you're local mayor on Server 31 Medicine Quest. I hope you all are enjoying your pre-whitelisting time just as I did. I'm relatively new to the FSN community and just wanted to give you all a view of my experience so far. First of all this community is 100% worth waiting for, I know some in here can get discouraged from time to time but focus on enjoying your time here, relax, and have fun! When I look back at my time in #whitelist-waiting chat it was exactly that, fun! FSN is everything I expected and more. The staff cannot get enough praise, Tru and his crew do an outstanding job of letting the right people in. The operations/assets crew keep everything running like clockwork. The man himself, Hans, works like a madman to make sure new and exciting things are always coming to the members. It is absolutely the best gaming community I've ever been apart of. So, I guess my point is enjoy you're time here. You ARE part of the community right now and soon will be able to join us all on the farm. Try not to focus on "when will I be in" and instead enjoy the company of your future neighbors or maybe competitors.

Don’t focus on the “when” focus on the “why”. When doesn’t matter. If it did and everyone got whitelisted after 30 days that’s a waiting period not a whitelist. To me FSN seems like a delicate system and it would only take a few bad apples to create chaos. Instead, let’s focus on the why. What’s the first question you were asked? “Why FSN?” I’ll take that further. WHY would I be a great fit for the community. WHY am I the right choice over others. WHY am I able to contribute (give back) to make FSN better. So, instead of focusing on “when will I be whitelisted”. Focus on “why will I be whitelisted”. See you all soon.

Regarding your time committment once you are whitelist: So I’m a farmer as a career and the current season is obviously very demanding of my time. That was a worry of mine when joining fsn. Yesterday I was planting corn IRL and had soybeans that were ready to harvest in FSN. I couldn’t get it done. What did happen is friends of mine harvested my field while I was at work. These are people I didn’t even know I existed 2 months ago and now they are helping me out in ways that I could never imagine. I met them all right here, in pre whitelist. As I said you all ARE part of the community, even in here. Take advantage of this time, build friendships. This is what FSN is about. Although the competition against fellow farmers can be fun, it’s about the friendships that are built through something as simple as a website and video game.

Enjoy @KernelsofCorn

Guide for Pre-Whitelisters for the Farm Sim Network

The following is to help guide you on your journey into Farming Simulator Network.(FSN) Many have walked the path before you, and have asked these questions.

  1. First and foremost read the discord channel FSN Official/ #read-here, do as it says.
  2. Second read the discord channel FSN Official/ #newcomer-news.
  3. Third read the pinned posts in FSN Official/ ##whitelist-waiting

Still have an unanswered question? See below:
Note FSN staff have answered most questions already in better words than I could have written. (credit given).

How long does it take to get white listed?

“Your pre-whitelist time with FSN depends on many factors, your interaction with the pre-whitelisting site, your activity and interaction in discord and the way you present yourself. Do these things and your time will be shorter, don't do them and it will be longer. FSN also offers events in the discord that will expedite the process if you're lucky enough to win one.” (Jayson)

What's wrong with my discord name?

Nothing, but your discord nickname in FSN Official should match your FSN user name so FSN staff can look you up. Please use this format “FSN Username (Farm Name)” Look here on how to change your discord nickname: “https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/219070107-Server-Nicknames”

What if I don't know my FSN username?

When you login to https://www.farmsim.network/ your FSN user name and farm name are displayed at the top left. I don't have a farm name when I login to https://www.farmsim.network/. Be patient and spend this time thinking of a good one, you will be asked for it at the farmsim.network website soon.

How will staff notify me of an interview for whitelisting?

“Whitelisting is a "must be present to win" activity. You will not receive an email, you must be present on Discord to be interviewed and considered for whitelisting. (We might leave you a DM if you are not "active" when we review your account)" KcWeBBy (Webb Farms) With that, be sure you can be Direct Messaged in discord as well, or else it could be difficult for FSN Onboarding staff to reach out to you.

I'm on Day “X” and I'm not whitelisted yet?

Don't focus on how long you have been waiting, focus on what steps you may have missed and how to make up for it. Check back to the #read-here, and #newcomer-news, look at the pinned messages in #whitelist-waiting. You may have missed an essential step. However, if you think you have met all the criteria then politely ask in discord (not a direct message) to the FSN staff if they could look into your account and application to see if you're missing anything.

If I have another question, where do I ask it?

FSN discord in Whitelist-Waiting. Do not DM Staff or @staff. Please be polite.

Some Notes about FSN Discord

  • The staff are always watching. Do not DM them in discord.
  • Colors of names in Discord: red = developer, orange = a senior staff member, cyan = staff member, green = server mayor.
  • If you see someone else on discord asking questions, be polite, help if you know the answer, do not give misinformation or answers you are unsure of, and don't throw the rule book at them we were all new once.
  • We all have different opinions, likes, dislikes, political views, and beliefs if someone does not agree with you, that's ok we're all different people. The diversity of people is what makes FSN so unique.
  • If a member is stepping out of line in chat be polite and try to resolve it but don't get into a fight with them over it. Abusive behaviour will not be tolerated. If the person does not stop the abusive behaviour please contact a staff member.
  • Listen to the FSN Staff! They are there to help you.
