  1. Edit: Cleaned up some of the ULX such as the logs and the bans to make them correct.
  2. Great EM and commander of RSC, Pluto has proven to a great extent to show to the whole server how proficient and dedicated he is to his duties on Gateway. He would definitely make a great moderator and has a big +1 from me
  3. bruh she really be trying to get that clone dick huh
  4. Easy: Luke defeated Darth Vader, who defeated Obi Wan, who defeated Anakin Therefore Luke is strong than Anakin
  5. Post edit answers aren't too much better. You need to put in some more effort. Go look at some other people's applications for comparison and perhaps some inspiration. You need to be much more detailed. Also, it's still riddled with grammatical errors.
  6. This is a very fair criticism, and thank you for taking the time to write this. I always appreciate when people put effort into their feedback. I understand how my foreword could be interpreted as a little bit of a pity parade, but I in no way want this to be the case. The only reason I put it up is because I want people to judge me on my actions now, not those I did last year, and in order for them to do that they needed a little bit of context. I really don't want to touch on that aspect of my life anymore than I already have, so yeah it is what it is. I'll be sure to try and have a chat with you when I see you in the teamspeak. I'm trying to speak to as many people as possible in the next few weeks so hopefully you'll be able to get a feel for the type of person I am.
  7. I talked to you for a very brief time in RSC and you seemed like you were alright. However, there are many issues with this application. Firstly, the answers for the scenarios are very lacking. There is a very little mention of ULX commands, and no mention of the correct syntax used to actually execute these commands. Additionally, your answers don't properly demonstrate how you would be effective at solving an issue. For instance, your answers are incredibly basic, to the point where the way you would actually sort out an issue is lost in it's simplicity. For instance: How would you go by doing this? Calming people down in the heat of the moment is very difficult, and it's not as easy as going in and basically just defusing the situation. You have to explain to us how you would sort out the issue in an effective and empathetic way. Additionally, some of your responses are very questionable. One of these is this one: You haven't displayed any attempt to hear his side of the story. Moderators can be wrong too, and you may have made a mistake without knowing it. Not hearing out people who are criticising you shows that perhaps you shows perhaps you may not be ready for moderator. Also, there are some other things. Like how in this post, which is essentially you selling the best version of yourself to the server as a serious, effective candidate for moderator, who will put the time and effort into making Gateway a good place for all, can't put the effort to put in substantial answers and even grammar check your application. How can we know that you will put the time and effort into being the best moderator you can be? Also: You didn't finish this question. You should at least check it before submitting it. All in all, as your application stands right now, I don't think it particularly shows that you are a viable candidate for moderator. This is why for the time being I am going to give you a -1. However, if you demonstrate a change in attitude and fix up your application between now and until this application gets accepted/denied, I'd more than happily commend you for your hard effort and change it into a +1.
  8. yeah, we'll see who will be player bashing who when you and I get into the gateway boxing ring
  9. Hey, probably for the best that you didn't see me as an EM last year. But yeah, since coming back I have been focusing the primary amount of my time into the 501st, so I haven't had a lot of time to get accustomed to people I haven't met before such as yourself. However, as of this application, I am putting in more effort to talking to people from different regiements and joining everyone's teamspeak channel so I can open my sphere and engage myself more in the community. If you see me on the server, feel free to say hi. I'd be happy to talk to you. Hey, thank you for your feedback and your advice. I appreciate you putting in the time and effort to provide me with such a detailed response. As for that situation you mentioned, I was stuck inside of someone at spawn in last Friday's 6:30 event, and then I killed them so I could get out. I only did this because I remember back in 2019, that's how most people got out when they all got stuck in each other while in bunks. However once you told me that it was not on, I quickly realised that that's not how it's done anymore so I apologise for that. I had a super quick chat with you in Buck's teamspeak channel today, but I hope I get to speak to people more in game and on the teamspeak.
  10. thats it, i'm reporting you to the belarus federal police for reg bashing
  11. That's a very fair criticism. As I previously mentioned in my foreword, the primary reason for my lacklustre performance as a EM last year was because of real life stuff that I had to deal with at the time. It was a pretty heavy time back then and Gateway really took a backseat. I really enjoyed being an EM (regardless of bad I was at it), and it wasn't that I didn't like making events anymore, its just I didn't have the energy to. However, now in 2020 I have overcome those aforementioned troubles to a large extent, and now the drive I have to actively help and participate in the community is stronger than ever.I really enjoy being on Gateway and I want to help it the best I can. I know you guys from your perspective have no reason to take my word for anything, but I can ensure that i'll put 110% to make up for the fuck ups I made last year.
  12. Thanks for understanding. My time in 7th didn't end the way I would have hoped it had but i'm glad that it's behind me now. Now that i'm with the 501st I hope that i'm able to make the impact with the newer players that I hoped I would make as 7th Sky CO.
  13. Also, any feedback, positive and especially negative is VERY much appreciated, so if you have feedback please let me know. I will be keeping an eager eye on the comments and I will address criticisms. I hope to show you guys that despite my past as a staff member that dipped, in 2020 I am more than ready and excited for the responsibilities and the duties of a moderator.
  14. Quick Foreword Before I get into this, I feel as if I have to explain my previous staff experience and why I departed in the way I did. This is because it demonstrates the change of heart I have had over the past year, and will hopefully provide you guys with some perspective on why I just suddenly dipped, and why I am now applying again to be staff. Last year in around August, I was a JEM. This is after me being demoted from EM for not rocking up for my events. After this, I essentially dipped from the server and then didn't return until a couple of months ago this year. The main reason this happened ,was because at that point I was going through real life stuff of the not-so-fun mental health variety, and it got very overwhelming having to make that commitment while also dealing with Year 12 exams and some problematic situations outside of Gateway. As some of you may know, mental health issues can make you lose interest in things you used to love doing. For me, playing Gateway and doing events was one of those things that unfortunately got caught in the crossfire. I know that this is quite personal stuff that I am throwing out here. But it's kinda because in order to understand how things have changed, you need to understand where my head-space was before. Also, I kinda wanted to give you guys an explanation so I wasn't just "the shitty EM that just dipped". Since then, I have made strides improve on the mental health aspect of my life and at the moment, I am in a much better place than I was this time last year. The reason I am bringing this up in the first place is because I just wanted to explain to you guys that now since I am in a better place, I am ready and excited to take up the responsibilities of staff once again, and I am more than prepared for the challenges that would await me as a Moderator. Anyways, back to the application. Current in-game alias/rank: DSGT 2012 Humbug Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:79736052 Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Frostiey/ List your current playtime: 284 What is your age? (Minimum of 14 years of age.) 19 How well known are you on a scale of 1-10? 8 Do you have Teamspeak 3 installed? Yes Do you enjoy helping other people? Yes, this desire to help others, and by extension the community, is the primary reason why I am applying for mod. Are you willing to test your stress? Yes, after fully experiencing the stresses that being staff can bring last year when I was EM, I can 100% say that I am now fully prepared to deal with the stresses that come with being staff. Do you believe you're able to deal with individuals and situations in a completely unbiased manner? Yes, I feel as if I am definitely capable of dealing with the many situations that mod faces in a objective, unbiased and fair manner. Do you have any problems with any of our current staff members? No Are you willing to learn new ways to approach situations? Yes, I feel as finding new ways to approach situations will ultimately make enable me to improve on what I already know and to perform my duties more effectively. Do you have any active warns? No How will you becoming a moderator impact our community? By becoming mod, I hope to impact the community in many beneficial ways. Firstly, I hope that by me having the ability to enforce the rules of the server, I can be one of the many team members that help establish a great environment for all of the players to participate in. The rules of the server are in place so that there is a fun atmosphere that the player can immerse themselves in, and with my long term commitment to the server, I as much as anyone enjoy keeping this environment intact. For this reason, by me having the ability to enforce these rules would help negate any potential hazards to the environment that the staff team have tried so hard to maintain. Secondly, I take pride in the specific qualities that I demonstrate that I believe would be indicative of a good Moderator. For instance, when I make a mistake, I quickly recognise where I did wrong and apologise for it. The reason I say this is because anyone would be able to be a staff member if they never made mistakes. However, contrary to popular belief, Gateway staff are still infact human, which in turn makes them susceptible to making mistakes. It's one thing to make a mistake, but to have the ability to admit you are wrong, and then proceed to right that wrong is a quality that I believe is indicative of a good staff member. Additionally, this aspect of my character makes me very engaged in any feedback I might accumulate from both players and other staff. I believe this is another positive attribute because the ability to properly take other people's criticisms of you to heart is one of the MOST important aspects of being staff, and as aforementioned, sometimes staff make mistakes. Thirdly, I am able to execute my duties as staff in a serious demeanour. Although in my stint last year as an EM, there were isolated occasions where perhaps I didn't take the job with the seriousness it required (refer to the infamous rainbow gungan event), I believe that a year later, I am ready to tackle the role of staff with the maturity it deserves. Although I will still have fun on the server, and behave appropriate to the situation, when it comes to my duties as a staff member, I will always treat my job with the seriousness it deserves. Lastly, I simply love helping people. One of my favourite things to do on the server is to do a training session with some of the newer members of the 501st so that they can learn the ropes. Although this may be a bizarre thing to mention on a Mod application, I believe that this is indicative of my passion for helping people on the server. As Mod, my primary role will be to help people. I feel as this will not only be fulfilling for my experience, but beneficial for all of those that play on Gateway, as having a Moderator who is passionate about their duty will do nothing but help the people on the server. Do you understand that as a member of the Staff Team, your position may be subject to change and / or termination should you not be performing to the degree stipulated? Do you also understand that a staff role is one that comes with the expectation of commiting time to helping the users of the server (Up to 20 hours a week)? Yes A user is RDMing and insulting other users. You are the only staff available to deal with the situation. What do you do? I would firstly !administrate and then fly to a secluded location, and then !bring [suspect] and the !freeze them. I would then inform them that players have been accusing them of RDM and Abuse, and then ask him to explain his side of the story. After this I will check the logs by using /logs to check if the player was actually RDMing. Then I would !bring [victim] and then ask for his side of the story. I would then !seewarns for both of the people involved to perhaps gain some more context on their previous endeavours on the server. If I see any outstanding warns, then this will cause a more severe punishment depending on the context of the warns provided. If the victim and the suspect start yelling at one another once I ask them about what happened, I will !gag the pair and then explain that we are going to talk one at a time so that both sides have a say, and then !ungag them so they can tell their sides of the story. If the pair sort out their differences, then I would state that i'm glad that they were able to sort out their differences and then tell them to just take it easy and not do it again. However, if either the suspect or the victim keep on verbally abusing one another, I will state that if they keep it up, I will have to !warn them. If they keep on going even after this, I will then proceed to !warn them for their respective breaches of the rules, and then explain to them that any further abuse will cause a ban. I would tell them to perhaps stay apart for the meanwhile and to take it easy. However, if I get anymore reports of abuse and RDM, I will !ban 1440 for their breaches of the rules. A user has contested a warn you have given him and proceeds to verbally abuse you, what do you do? I would try and get into contact with this person by either Teamspeak, Discord or via !goto, and then ask them if they would like to discuss it. If they say that they do not want to, then I would respect their wishes, but inform them in a calm demeanour as to not to escalate the situation that they can't be abusing people in OOC, and that if they ever do want to talk about it, I would be happy to discuss it with them and that they can privately contact me whenever they would want to. However, if they did want to discuss it, I would then ask him in a calm and collected demeanour to explain to me what happened from their perspective. Me hearing the events from his perspective would provide me a detailed look into how my actions affected them, and from then I can then determine the best way to react to the situation. If I determine that my warn was valid, then I will explain to him with an empathetic demeanour my perspective of the situation, and provide him with the reasoning of why I gave them the warn. If I determine that I was in the wrong, I would immediately apologise for my mistake and explain that I was in the wrong, and then amend my mistake by using contacting a senior admin and then explain to them the situation and ask that they remove the warn. A user has threatened to DDos and take down the server. What do you do? DDoS threats are a clear and cut danger to the integrity of the server, and a severe violation of server rules. I would immediately !bring and !freeze the suspect to a secluded spot, and tell him that DDoS threats are a very serious ordeal and that people even joking about them and concur serious punishments such as permabans. If the suspect seems genuinely sorry for his action, and indicates that he just wanted to make a joke, I would inform him that if he ever did it again, he would get permanently banned from the server. I would then !return the suspect, while recording his Steam ID, and then notify senior staff on what happened and then providing them with his Steam ID. However, if it clear that he is not joking, and it's a genuine threat, I would immediately !ban [suspect] 0 DDoS Threats, and then provide senior staff with his Steam ID. A Commander and Lieutenant are arguing in front of debrief. It is getting quite heated. The context to the argument is unknown to you. What do you do? If the problem is in RP, then I would let the appropriate authorities such as CG or RHC deal with it, as it that is apart of the roles CG has. However, if it has become clear that it has escalated past RP, I would intervene by using !administrate and then flying to a secluded location, and then using !bring to bring them to me. I would then !gag the pair and then explain that they are officers and they should really know better, and that as officers they are to set an example for the rest of the server, and by screaming at one another infront of debrief they are doing anything but. After that, I would !ungag one of the two and then ask him for his side of the story. After listening to his side of the story, I would !gag him again and then !ungag the other to hear his side of the story. If possible, I will try and sort the problem out then and there, by empathetically mediating the argument, and then hopefully concluding with both officers apologising to one another. If they show me this maturity and willingness to forgive, then I will let them off with a simple verbal warning. However, if despite my intervention, I would !warn them both for abuse, and then tell them not to do it again, before using !ungag them and then using !return. However, if the problem still persists, then additional punishments may be required. A Cadet has been complaining and wandering around because he hasn't been trained yet. He doesn't appear to have any intent to role play. What do you do? I would !administrate to the cadet room and then !bring the cadet. I would explain to him that in order to be permitted to roam around the ship, he must be trained. If I have nothing else that I need to do, I would likely train him myself. However, in the case that I for whatever reason can't, I would ask "/comms Can SGT+ come and train the cadet?". If no SGT+ comes, then I will say "/comms If no SGT+ comes to the cadet room to train this cadet, a SGT+ will be selected at random." I'll let the SGT+ know that if the cadet has no intention of roleplay, for him to make a ticket and that i'll come and help. If the cadet was just confused on the rules of SWRP, then that is an easy sit. However, if it is clear that the cadet has NITRP, then I will verbally warn him, stating that if he doesn't stop behaving in the way he is, then I will have to kick him. I will start with !warn [cadet] NITRP, and then if their behaviour doesn't improve, I will then use !kick [cadet] NITRP. If he still persists after a kick, then I will !ban [cadet] 1440 NITRP due to his unwillingness to effectively play within the confines of the server.
