Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on CM-SS13?
Yes, because of a case of “”“griefing”“”, which I still don’t exactly understand the reason for. The ban happened a long time ago, years already if I recall, so I don’t believe that it may have any influence on this application.
Can you actively engage and communicate with the team through Discord?
I will be happy to communicate with them, but certainly it will depend on them if they want to properly communicate or not.
Why would you like to join the CM-SS13 staff team?
Have a while that I’ve been noticing that the staff team is currently lacking enough personnel to effectively apply the rules properly and when the time requires, as sometimes even medium/high pop game matches (130 to 140 player pop) don’t have a single administrator or moderator to…patrol. Because of that (And because that moonshanks politely invited me to apply for the role), I would be happy to volunteer my…workforce to auxiliate with the handling of the server.
What makes you a great addition to Staff? (Experienced Tabletop DM, Aliens Lore Buff, Super Organized, etc.?)
…Im going to be honest, I don’t usually like to…rank myself with characteristics that I think I have, and I usually like to hear the opinion of others around me about it, so…I may share part of my mentor schedule for you to make the necessary analysis. I used well my timer as mentor (which was not my choice for leaving), staying with new players from one to two hours, monologuing and explaining them all they needed to effectively proceed with their roles, and I was really fond of doing it, first for liking it, but later as a duty because, after all, the newbies weren’t going to be teached alone. I helped all types of people, from the most slow ones, to the fastest learning ones, which in fact were so intelligent that my usual training procedure was too basic too them. Every recruit would receive with me a full detail on their current RP context, the basic controlling keys and stuff (for the newest), training on where they preps were, why food should be eaten and where they can achieve it, training on a a basic “gunnery kit” that I planned, and which I used from the beginning to the end, first-aid procedures, a tour along the whole ship and a little tactics class if there were time, only after all that they would be deployed.And I bet that none of them died of gameplay imcopetence (at least from their part). Being that the basic training on itself, medical and engineering would receive more complex ones, and I would go through them to the end, until the recruit had ingested every piece of information given.
In your opinion, what is the most important quality of a CM-SS13 staff member?
I would say that, apart from patience (How cliché isn’t it?), a…member of staff need to know when to be harsh and when to be light. Like a magistrate, he is the balance of justice and a neutral personality, he needs to be cohesive, and need to keep a wide view of the whole situation to understand how his…policing will end affecting how everything else will run. After all, the dance need to follow the orchestra, and not the other way around.
Anything else you want to add?
I would like to say that I wouldn’t be doing this application if the twenty questions that I didn’t had time to go through as it involved very specific cases remained, And I do think that they were probably not a real representation of how a staff member would actually proceed at all.
