Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:41829242
Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/id/PurpleUmbrella/
Current in game alias / rank: N/A as IMP Rp hasn't started. Common known aliases include: Tanker/Tringee/Prince/1984/Admiral Wullf Yularen
How known are you on a scale of 1-10 (10 being everyone knows you):
I'm not too sure on this one. Sorry.
How will you becoming a moderator make an impact on the community?
I have a lot of Administrator and Management experience when it comes to starwarsrp and I believe that will help me throughout my time as a moderator. I've seen and dealt with most situations that pop up and I believe having a professional and veteran admin will help smoothen out the launch for Imperial RP, as you don't want a bunch of headless chickens running around not knowing how to solve player issues or concerns. I've been there for multiple Server Launches, (I will blank out communities names but Stooge can provide full references if need be): C*******l Gaming: HaloRP (Manager), Gateway Gaming: Clone Wars RP (Community Manager/Founder), Gateway Gaming: Galaxy at War | Part 1 (Community Manager/Founder), C******** Gaming: Legacy (Community Manager). I also ran various Moderator Training sessions at Gateway Gaming, which some of the current staff might have attended. I have learnt from each and every one of these experiences and I believe the knowledge I can bring to the table will have a positive impact on the server/community.
Do you believe you're able to deal with individuals and situations in a completely unbiased manner?
Do you use our Teamspeak server often?
Not currently as I'm waiting for my PC to be setup. I typically use it often when playing.
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?
Situations: Lol why do these seem familiar???
1. 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 pull the user aside and sternly ask 'Why are you Mass RDMing and Insulting other users?'. If their response is "I'm not", I would pull up evidence from other players (assuming I had it) and proceed to explain the rules to him and why his behaviour is not tolerated. If he is being a blatant f***head, I will slap him with maybe a small ban (Ranging from days to weeks) as he clearly has no intent to play properly. On the other hand if he were to apologize and perhaps somewhat explain himself, I would probably give him a !warn and make sure he apologizes to a majority of the players involved and ensure they are satsified with the outcome. It honestly depends on the player, if they have an intent to actually play and positively impact the server, I wouldn't want to completely cut them off. I would just ensure that they know they cannot continue breaking the rules. If a player clearly does not have an intent to contribute or play properly, It's an easy choice to cut them off (E.g. Mass RDMing at Mission Briefing while screaming N***a f****t).
2. A user has contested a warn you have given him and proceeds to verbally abuse you, what do you do?
I would take this extremely seriously, as I understand how sometimes moderators and admins get it wrong and I've seen it happen on this server quite often. I would !tp the user to a private area away from others, apologize and ask him to co-operate with me to ensure we have an outcome that is fair to all. I would ask firstly what he wants out of this conversation, whether it be his warning removed OR a valid explanation on why he received his warning (because clearly I didn't do it right the first time). I wouldn't take the verbal abuse personally, but just subtly warn him that his approach isn't often tolerated and he must be careful next time. I would then proceed to let him contest his warn and make sure I listen to every point. If the warn was incorrectly given, I would apologise personally and obviously remove his warn. If I believe the warn was correct, I would ask another Moderator to join our chat and get a second opinion. If it is decided the warn was fair, I would make sure the user leaves the session understanding that. I would ensure that the user atleast leaves the session with an understanding of the Admins decision.
3. A user has threatened to DDos and take down the server. What do you do?
The first thing on everyone's mind is probably to !ban envy 0 but I don't believe that's the best choice in this scenario. DDoS threats can be quite serious and in most cases players are probably joking, but in the event that someone is being serious I would endeavour to chat with the user first before smacking down the ban hammer. I would !tp them aside and ask them if they are being serious. If they say yes and are really trying to threaten me, I'd attempt to understand why the user would want to DDoS us. Sometimes the issue could be rather simple e.g. 'COMMANDER CODY DIDNT LET ME INTO HIS TRYOUTS BECAUSE I WAS 1 MINUTE LATE :(((('. If this was the case, I'd let the user know that firstly DDoS threats are NOT tolerated. Secondly, I'd explain to them that they could simply create a ticket if they needed an issue sorted, rather than threatening a DDoS which could get you banned. Thirdly, I would attempt to solve their issue. Finally, I would probably issue them a !warn, so admins in the future can see they've been spoken to about DDoS'ing as we can't just have users running around and threatening to DDoS for attention.
4. A Brigadier and Captain are arguing in front of debrief. It is getting quite heated. The context to the argument is unknown to you. What do you do?
Firstly it's quite embarassing to have two higher ups arguing and causing tension an debrief, so I'd !tp them away to a secure place firstly. I would then attempt to mediate their discussion and ensure both parties agree to the outcome I propose. If it's just a bit of banter, I'd advise them not to do it again infront of a debrief as it is distracting and ruins immersion (unless of course, it's part of their characters). If there is a serious issue at hand, I'd suggest they save it for a Commanders Meeting if it's too big to solve now. I'd warn them that they need to keep it friendly and any abuse will be dealt with accordingly. If both parties are happy with the outcome and are friendly, then my job is done. I would get them to issue an apology in debrief and even to their own regiments (if needed).
5. 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?
It's quite clear that the issue here is not the Cadet, it's us. We should ensure that there are trainers on at most times and that all that can train DO train. It's not always fun but it needs to get done. Most likely the reason he does not have any intent to role-play is because no one is there to show him how. It is always best to give everyone a chance to play and prove themself, I've seen many f***heads turn into great players because they had the right environment to do so. We should ensure that we have that environment. I would bring him back to the training room and either assign a trainer or do it myself. I would apologise for the neglect and inform him that in future he should create a staff ticket if there are any more issues.
Overall I am extremely keen to play this new server and I would love to be apart of the inner workings that keep it thriving. I understand if players are skeptical at first as I haven't been around much lately. I've got good reasons as to why but I would rather discuss them with the staff team as they are personal. Regardless I will be playing this server when it comes out and I wish luck to all who want to be a part of it.
Thankyou for reading my application.
