Applicants History & Reasons
Have you had any warns (If so state them): One warning on the server for RDM. While I was in the 212th, I killed a Stormtrooper who was trying to get to Laser Tower on the Death Star. Instead of either AOS’ing him or getting him to leave, I killed him. I was very silly and stupid, thinking it was a joke and I definitely should’ve known that this sort of behaviour was not tolerated.
Have you had any bans (If so state them): No
Have you been staff on any other servers or communities (If so state them): No long term or recent experience. I’ve been a moderator and admin on a few servers for other games (Rust, minecraft. Etc.) but they just were with some mates. A few years ago, I was a trial mod on a TTT server but couldn’t commit due to school (pretty sure they shut down). I’ve never been staff for a Star Wars RP server yet, despite this, I’m really motivated to learn from how to do so from a team that I personally feel is very professional and supportive.
What do you believe is the purpose of Moderators on the server: From my experience, the two main purposes of a moderator on a Star Wars RP server. The first to ensure that the rules and standards of the server are followed. These need to be enforced for everyone on the server to enjoy a good RP experience, yet not too restrictive to the point where it limits people from having fun. This also means the moderator must also be an example of how players should be acting in the server. If the rules are not followed by the moderators, it becomes hypocritical and is no fun for the other players. The second purpose is to provide support for other players so they can enjoy their RP experience. Whether it be giving them tools, spawning in props or putting in NPC enemies, these things help other players use their own creativity and allow for a fun experience for the server.
Why are you applying to be a Trial Moderator: I’ve always seen moderators on most servers abuse their power on other Good servers, whether its because things aren’t fun for them or they wanted to have the upper hand. It’s due to this that I’ve always had a negative view on most mods. However, I’ve been on IG for some time now and I’ve enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, and a great deal of this is due to the staff. They’re always supportive and letting me RP, yet always making sure that everyone is obeying the rules so that others can enjoy time on the server. This is why I want to apply, to learn from a team that, in my eyes, really know how to make RP fun and exciting. I want to be a role model for the other players on the server and provide any assistance I can.
What do you believe you can bring to the staff team: I am willing to be constantly active on the server and provide assistance and support to anyone who needs it. Always attempting to be diplomatic when it comes to any confrontation. I have a good knowledge of the server rules and how to deal with situations in which a player has broken them. Eagerness to learn from those staff members who are more experienced from me. Willing to receive any feedback in the hopes of becoming a better moderator, whether it comes from staff or other players.
Someone Mass RDM’s and disconnects from the server. What do you do?: Firstly, I would get the Steam Player’s ID and warn them for mass RDM. I would then inform my superiors of their player name and Steam ID, so if the player returned they would know, while also seeking guidance on how to deal with the situation further.
Someone is bullying another member of the community. What do you do?: I would hear both the player’s out, trying to get both sides of the story, while also getting witnesses to tell me what they heard. I might also see if I can check chat logs to gather as much evidence as I can. If the evidence is not enough, I would remind both players that bullying is not tolerated at all on the server and if I caught either of them doing it again they would be punished. I may also keep an eye on the two and see if it continues. If I do find evidence of bullying, I would punish them accordingly.
You see a higher ranking staff member abuse their powers. What do you do?: I would remind that staff member that what they are doing is abusing they’re power and I would kindly ask them to stop. If, however, they ignore me and continue to do so, I would acquire evidence of their abuse of power (footage, screenshots, etc.) and have it shown to other high ranking staff members.
Someone threatens to DDOS the server. what do you do?: Firstly, I would inform the higher-ups about the threat as this is territory I’m unfamiliar with and they would probably know more than me. Next, I would acquire their Steam ID and Name and have them brought to me in a private area. I would remind them that threats like these are taken seriously and if they continued to do so, they would be severely punished. If they decided to continue, I would punish them accordingly, most likely with a ban. Finally, I would inform the higher-ups about the situation and the potential threat to the server.
