In Game Details

Have you had any warns (If so state them)?
Negative, I have not received any warns on the Imperial Gaming StarwarsRP server.

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 Rishi Moon 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 Garry's 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 player-base 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 was lucky enough to be granted the opportunity to take on the Moderator role within the community as well as become apart of the Community Support Team and Community Media Team. In doing so I put a lot of effort and time into helping various people around the server and community as a whole, I hope I have redeemed myself in the eyes of the community and the staff/management team and thank them to still to this day for the opportunity given to me.

 

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)
  • Imperial Gaming - Moderator (StarwarsRP)

 

What do you believe is the purpose of Moderators on the server?
Server Moderators are a highly important aspect in the success and day to day operations of any and all Garry’s Mod servers, not only do these individuals make up the backbone of the community but they devote hours of their own time in order to mediate and moderate conflicts and situations that may arise within a server environment. Whilst a moderators primary roles lie within the server they also assist in dealing with issues that are outside of the server environment, these being In Character (IC) issues and Out of Character (OOC) issues. Examples of some In character issues that would/could require the interjection of a Moderator are situations such as but not limited to;

  • Users who are breaking server rules regarding role-play related aspects.
  • Users who are breaking server rules regarding regimental/role related aspects.
  • Users who are interrupting or ruining the role play and or experience of another user.

Examples of some Out of Character issues that would/could require the interjection of a Moderator are situations such as but not limited to;

  • Mediating disagreements that may arise between players/community members.
  • Defusing users who may become aggressive or volatile towards others.
  • Dealing with users who make attempts to threaten or abuse another user.
  • Dealing with users who make attempts to bully or harass another user.

In all cases, Moderators are the people who ensure the server flows smoothly and that any users who aim to effect or interrupt the experience of another are dealt with appropriately and accordingly. Moderators also act as a person in which users can approach if they feel that someone within the community is treating them in an unacceptable way and act as a safeguard for that person so that they feel safe once again. A moderator is apart of the staff team and therefore much like a team for any other thing in life 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?
My reasoning in which I am applying for Trial Moderator within the staffing team within the Imperial Gaming community is broken up into a few main overarching aspects which include;

  1. My passion for helping others to the best of my abilities.
  2. Dealing with threats or issues that may arise, including minges.
  3. Taking on further responsibilities, challenges and channeling my skills/abilities.
  4. Past staffing and moderation experience.
  5. Allowing for the ability to discuss ideas and future pathways for the server.


I pride myself on my passion I have for helping others and giving back, whether this be through small actions such as lending a helping hand by replying to a comment or question that may arise in games or on the forums or giving them an in depth explanation on how and what to do. I try my best to help each and every person I encounter to the best of my abilities as often as I possibly can. I wish to give back to the server and help the players within it have the best and most enjoyable experience they possibly can 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 not only further myself as a person but as a figure for public assistance.

Users who come onto the server for the primary purpose of causing issues and minging are a problem that occurs within every StarwarsRP community and I wish to help deal with these individuals and their actions within the server environment in order to stop them from degrading the experience of other players in the game, this will allow the server to flourish with even better RP than it already does.

I feel as if I have developed a high level of teamwork, leadership and communication skills through the various experiences and groups I have been apart of in my day to day life and I wish to apply them within a more developed role and be better involved within the community, I see the position of Trial Moderator as a good way to channel these skills and begin my journey of self growth.

During my time as an event master in the late months of 2017 I gained an insight into the moderating side of things as I often found myself having to deal with issues late at night when other staff members were not online and also saw that sometimes staff members got too many tickets than they were able to keep up with, these tickets would then sit there pending for an extended duration of time until they finally disappeared. During my time as Moderator in the latter part of 2018 through to the time in which I resigned in Late May 2019, I developed a high understanding of the Moderator role and strove daily to push myself to the best of my ability and complete all of Staffing actions to the highest of standards. This position allowed me the ability to let my passion for helping users to shine through as I focused tirelessly on providing the general player-base with a voice inside of the Staffing team. If given the opportunity to again take on this enormous privilege I intent to assist the already amazing team of staff in responding to and resolving issues in the community with great ease and speed to ensure that the issues or problems can be resolved swiftly allowing the server to run smoothly and efficiently.

Lastly, I wish to act as a gateway for users to feel free to approach me with suggestions, Ideas or questions they may have which I may then pass on to the relevant parties or answer myself If possible.

 

What do you believe you can bring to the staff team?
As previously touched upon within my application, I have stated that I believe I possess good leadership, teamwork and communication skills, all of which I have obtained through experiences in my personal life as well as being a member of the West Australian, Australian Army Cadets and progressing through the ranks. As well as this through my prior and existing jobs in customer service I have achieved several Customer service 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 the vast majority of the staff team, I tend to be on later at night whilst other staff are offline or busy meaning I am able to maintain the server and ensure the rules are followed up until the late hours of the night. My wealth of knowledge and experience gained from my past staffing positions on other servers as well as my positions I have held on the Imperial Gaming server allows me to know, understand and be competent with the use of ULX commands and other ULX features that will assist me in fulfilling 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 and called upon.
Allowing me to be apart of the staff team would give me the chance to once again make use of my skills and abilities as well as allowing me the opportunity to put my level headed and forward thinking nature to good use and would give me the chance to help the server and the pre-existing staff team run and function whilst also lightening their load a little and adding my own personal flair, especially over the coming holiday season. Some additional things that I believe I will be able to bring to the Imperial Gaming staff team are my creative mindset, which can help me in thinking of new and interesting ideas for the server as well as ways to approach situations. 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 want to constantly do better and strive to achieve my best and develop myself into the best version of me, 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 and professional manner especially in stressful situations and my general positive attitude towards players and tasks.

 

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 initial 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 keeping in mind Imperial Gaming's stance towards bullying within the community, 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 the user and then contact a high ranking member on staff on the TS3 server or Staff Steam chat 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. Throughout this ordeal it is important to keep in mind that DDOSing in Australia is a highly illegal offence and can be taken to court, this further re-enforces why Imperial Gaming does not take these threats lightly. Regardless of if the threat was real or just a joke, they are treated in the exact same manner as we can never be too careful.

+1 Although you've only recently joined back it is unfair to leave negative remarks around that area, as it was due to personal issues. I've known you for quite some time now and have never had a negative interaction with you. You have proven to be skillfull, trustworthy and active in the past, especially, within your former positions on Imperial Gaming and is again demonstrated through the detailed answers of your application. If you were to become staff again I'm most certain you will fulfil your role, duties and keep the members you deal with, happy.

Holyyyyyyy damn that's some detail. Only feedback for you is for making sure you fix some errors in your grammar/spelling. I have the nitpick of always hating the lowercase "i" for example. That's just for feedback but otherwise there is NO reason for you to not come back into the staff team!
