A Hypixel Helper is tagged with [HELPER] in a dark blue color. Three things that this article will say: what kind of things can a Hypixel Helper do, what they are there for, and how people can apply for Helper. A brief description about Helpers is that they are staff members of the Hypixel Network and they are there to assist players with questions they have.
A Helper can lose their permission by abusing their abilities such as muting a player for no reason. After losing the [HELPER] rank, they will go back to whatever their previous rank was such as VIP.
Helpers are able to give the custom Helper lapis rating on the forums to players who make threads with cool ideas, suggestions, etc. This rating can only be given out by Helpers.
Although we do not know the exact extent of Helper's permissions, we know Helpers have access to many things to allow them to help the players better. Hypixel Helpers can receive and send messages to everyone on the Hypixel Network without having them added on their friends list. This allows for players to ask questions easier and helps the Helper message people they need to message about rules. All commands given to Helpers allow them to both help users and prevent rule-breaking to a certain extent. Some of the abilities made available to them are the /mute and /kick commands and the capability to private messages (/w, /msg, etc) to all players. However, they cannot ban other players.
Helpers are present to provide assistance to all Hypixel players. They are well-versed in all aspects of network knowledge. Helpers can receive many messages and this depends on how well known the staff is. If a player became Helper recently, they may not receive as many messages as a Helper who has been staff for several months.
All information about applying for the Helper rank can be found on the Hypixel forums. Here is a link to the format: https://hypixel.net/threads/guide-helper-application-format.345440/
