Applicants History & Reasons

Have you had any warns (If so state them):

I have received NO warns

Have you had any bans (If so state them):

Yes, I have had 1 ban since i started playing in June 2017 and this was a permaban which was given to me on the 28/01/2018 @ 21:04:01, the reason for the ban was: 'Flying drop ship into debrief area' back when the server was on the Rishimoon map rotation. The reason behind the ban is I had decided to let my younger cousin play on computer that day as I was having to go out to do some errands and he decided he wanted to play Garrys Mod as he had seen me play if before in the past, before i left i loaded in the server for him to play on as i knew the playerbase on Imperial Gaming was good and would be able to give him an insight into how StarwarsRP operates and functions. I do admit this was a mistake in hindsight as i was not there to monitor his actions and make sure he conducted himself properly and when i got home he told me i was banned on that server now.

Although i have this ban I was unbanned by Carnifex who i spoke to about the ban and my appeal (Ban appeal), and i was lucky enough to be given a second chance in order to show everyone that i am still a hardworking a rule abiding member of the community, both on the server and in the forums. Following my unban i have achieved this 2w playtime, progressed through the ranks of ISB and shown myself to be a valued member of the Bureau in game. I have made 50+ documents since my unban both for my role i briefly had as a Regional Government member and my current role as an ISB agent which i put a lot of effort and time into as well as helping various people around the server. I feel/hope i have redeemed myself in the eyes of the community and the staff/management team.

 

Have you been staff on any other servers or communities (If so state them):

  • CerebroRP- Senior Admin (DarkRP)
  • CerebroRP - Senior Admin (PoliceRP)
  • SaltyRP - Super Admin (DarkRP)
  • Frostbite Network - Owner (DarkRP)
  • Millennia Gaming -  Moderator (HogwartsRP)
  • Imperial Gaming - Event Master (StarwarsRP)

 

What do you believe is the purpose of Moderators on the server:

Moderators play a vital part within the server functioning of the server, Moderators are there to help enhance and better the player experience for all users within the server as well as Moderating and mediating any incidents or situations that may unfold (eg. If a moderator is called to a sit where 2 users as arguing and yelling about an incident that has unfolded the moderator is there to mediate the situation, calm both of the players down and get both sides of the story before deciding upon an appropriate punishment/action to take regarding the incident). Imperial Gaming is a Serious RP server and it is a moderators job to enforce this and ensure all players are sticking within the rules and guidelines of the server whilst also enjoying their time. Moderators are there to assist with any and all in character related staff matters (eg. bullying, failRP, abuse of powers, disrespect, RDM etc.) as well as assisting in things such as DDOS threats and other server related staffing matters. A moderator is apart of the staff team and therefore much like a team for any other thing they are there to help, and work with others to ensure the overall experience of everyone on the server is kept to a high, the moderators should be able to get to know and speak with the players within the community with a nice and well mannered approach whilst also being able to switch to a serious and enforcing manner when needed of them. They are also required to know their requirements and responsibilities as a member of the staffing team, as well as all of the server rules and appropriate punishments so that they are able to enforce them and inform players of them when needed. Furthermore as a moderator you should be able to read all aspects of a situation presented to you to ensure the actions you take are justified and within reason whilst manifesting a calm approach even in stressful situations, this allows them to make an informed and logical decision in assessing the situation and with review of the defined punishment list, take the appropriate actions in order to ensure the resolution of the matter at hand.

 

Why are you applying to be a Trial Moderator:

I am applying for a position as a trial moderator within the staffing team in the Imperial Gaming community as i have a passion for helping others and giving back, whether this be through small actions such as reply to a comment in-game or on the forums or giving them an in depth explanation on how/what to do, i try my best to help to the best of my abilities as often as i can. I wish to give back to the server and help the players within it have the best and most enjoyable experience possible not only within the server but the entire community as a whole. I intend to provide a positive and helpful face for the community as well as living up to the standards and requirements of a staff member in order to further myself within the server and as a person. Minges are a problem within the server and i wish to heal deal with them and their actions within the server in order to stop them from degrading other players experiences in game to allow the server to flourish with better RP even more than it already does. I feel like i have good teamwork, leadership and communication skills that i have acquired through my experiences IRL that i wish to apply and further them within game and be better involved within the community as i see a moderator position as a good way to channel my skills. During my time back when i was an Event Master i gained an insight into the moderating side of things, often having to dealt with issues late at night when other staff members weren't online and also saw that sometimes staff members may be busy, AFK or unavailable to attend a ticket and the ticket would sit there pending for an extended duration of time until it diapered. I intend to help make sure the tickets and issues players have within the server are responded too with great ease and speed to ensure the issue or problem can be resolved allowing the server to run smoothly.

 

What do you believe you can bring to the staff team:

As previously stated within this application i have good Teamwork, Leadership and communication skills which i have obtained through experiences being a member of the Army Cadets and obtaining rank within this as well as my job role as a member of customer service and having won several customer server and management awards within my region of Western Australia which show and reflect not only my ability but also my capability to work well and communicate with others. Due to my shifted timezone in comparison to most of the staff amongst the staffing team i tend to be on later at nigh whilst other staff are offline or busy meaning i am able to maintain the server and ensure rules are followed late at night. My knowledge gained from possessing past staffing positions on other servers as well as my position of Event Master on Imperial Gaming allows me to know, understand and be competent with the use of ULX commands and other ULX features that will assist me in the role of Trial Moderator, these roles have also given me knowledge and insight into the strong and weak points of staffing and staffing methods meaning i know where to improve and how to improve when needed. Allowing me to be apart of the staff team would give me the chance to make use of my skills and abilities as well as allowing me to put my level headed and forward thinking nature to good use and would give me the opportunity to help the server and the pre-existing staff team run and function whilst also lightening their load a little, especially over the holiday season. Some additional things that i believe i can bring to the staff team are my creative mindset which can help me in thinking of new and interesting ideas within the server, my prior experience from being a staff member on the server, my new and thought out ideas that come along with my creative mindset, my eagerness to constantly do better and strive to achieve my best, my willingness to learn and grow through the acceptance of constructive and negative feedback, my ability to deal with and communicate well with others whilst maintaining a calm manner especially in stressful situations and my general positive attitude towards players and tasks. Additionally to all that i know the difference between a mingy act and a simple mistake and will be semi lenient to a simple mistake whilst also knowing when to "Put on my big boy pants" so to speak.


Scenarios

Someone Mass RDM’s and disconnects from the server. What do you do?:

The first point of action within a scenario such as this would be to check the damage and or kill logs to determine the exact number of players the suspect has killed and to verify they did in fact commit the offence they are accused of. The next step would be to teleport to one of the victims that the player killed in order to determine the exact nature of what unfolded as sometimes MRDM can be misinterpreted (eg. If Vaders Fist or another regiment such as that are guarding the Sith Temple and kill 4 Storm Troopers who enter, then that would not be considered as Mass RDM due to the KOS sign present at the temple entry) once i have spoken with one of the suspects victims and determined how the incident unfolded i would ask them, and all of the other victims if they had any evidence (Screenshots or video recordings) of the incident and review all the evidence that gets provided checking for any extra or omitted information regarding the MRDM and the nature behind it. Once i have reviewed the entirety of the case at hand i would collaborate with the IG warn/ban spreadsheet to ensure an appropriate punishment is sorted out for someone who has committed this offence, i would then (depending on what the spreadsheet stats locate the players SteamID and use the !ban menu to sort out the ban making sure to state the exact nature of his ban, if the ban duration required from his offence exceeds the limit as to which i am able to ban then i would contact a staff member who is able to ban the player for that duration to ensure the correct sentence is issued. After issuing the player with his ban i would go to the players who were killed randomly by the player and apologise to them on behalf of the staff team, additionally if they were in the middle of completing a quest when they were killed and as a result unable to complete said quest i would personally reimburse the player of the credits they lost.

 

Someone is bullying another member of the community. What do you do?:

The first intial action i would take would be to gather any and all possible evidence of the bullying including statements from the player (both in the OOC chat and in character chat) as well as video and screenshot evidence. Following this i would then confront the player who was accused of being the bully and if i am able to conclude that the player has been bullying i would make an on the spot assessment as to the severity of the bullying and any other details about the person who is being bullied and the bully himself as these may affect the nature of the situation at hand. Things that may increase the severity of the bullying is how extensive the comments were for example whether of not things such as racism or player disrespect were also used. Additional details that may affect the situations outcome can include whether the bully in question has been warned prior for similar reasons (can check the warns menu to see), another thing is how old the person being bullied is, if the user is a younger player than this bullying case will need to be dealt with delicately. Following the on the spot assessment i would consult the warn/ban spreadsheet to determine the exact severity of punishment that is deemed suitable for the player in question, once that is determined if the player requires a verbal warning i would do so and then spectate him to ensure the incident doesn't reoccur. If the player required a regular warn i would use the !warn feature and insert the SteamID and warn details. If the player required a ban then i would use the !ban command and insert the steamID and reason, however if the ban required was for a longer duration then i was able to issue then i would contact a staff member capable of issuing a ban of that duration and provide them with the reason as to why the player is being banned.

 

You see a higher ranking staff member abuse their powers. What do you do?:

If i was to hear or be reported about another member of the staff team abusing there powers then i would start recording and spectate them using invisibility and no-clip to gather any evidence possible to show how they are abusing their power and who the abuse in power if affecting (being sure to note their names), if any evidence it able to be provided on top of evidence collected by myself then that would help in showing the severity of the issue. I would then approach the staff member (away from other players) and confront them on their misuse of power and see what they have to say about my claims/accusations, if it is found to be that it was a genuine mistake or they were unaware that they actions they were doing were wrong and against the rules then i would inform them not to do such actions in the future and keep the evidence in case they proceeded to re-offend being sure to still report the matter to a higher up staff member. If the staff member does proceed to re offend then i would take the matter directly to a member of staff who outranks them and present them with all of the collated evidence and statements from players, if there is nothing more i can do to help regarding the situation then i would leave the matter to the senior staff to resolve internally being sure to apologise to any and all affected players on behalf of the staff team for the breach/abuse of power that was conducted.

 

Someone threatens to DDOS the server. what do you do?:

The first action to be taken in a scenario such as this is to yet again gather any and all evidence available in regard to the situation this evidence could be from , chat, logs, video and Audio recordings which i will then review to determine if the play did threaten to DDOS the server. If the threat was determined to be serious and an imminent threat to the server being under attack then the correct action to be taken would be to kick and or contact a high ranking member on staff on the TS3 server to inform them of the scenario and any additional details i have. If the player is dealt with and the threat has passed then i would collaborate with the higher staff to determine the correct course of action/punishment to be dealt with which would most likely be a ban or permban under the staffs discretion. If the threat by the player was deemed to be a false alarm or a joke then i would not be forced to refer to the higher ups for punishment and would conduct my duties as a moderator and warn the player for threatening to harm the server.

Terms
I accept that I am a representative of Imperial Gaming, and that I have been given these powers to make the experience of others better. I understand that advertising my application can get it denied. I accept that I may be demoted at any time by a senior member of staff without prior warning, as long as a valid reason is given. I have read all the rules and understand them completely, if not I will ask a higher staff member for a better explanation.
