List your current playtime (in hours) on our Clone Wars RP server:
What is your age? (Minimum of 14 years of age.)
Do you have any active warnings? (Confirm with a staff member if unsure):
TeamSpeak is an essential platform used by all staff members to communicate to each other and the community. A majority of your presence (including activity) will be determined by your availability on TeamSpeak. Do you have it installed?
What made you decide to join the staff team? What are your intentions with the staffing role and it's in-game abilities and power?
Even if I have recently re-joined the community I have always had a thought to come back and relive the old days and make new memories. In these memories, many of those have me within the staff team and from experience, staffing has been a very enjoyable part of the server for me and not only has enriched the server for me but brought many good moments and new friendships. I have joined back recently. I look to enrich the server's experience by giving a helping hand to the current staff team and allow the users to have a better RP experience.
In a minimum of 50 words, express if and / or how you enjoy helping others? Also include how this will transfer into the staffing role if achieved.
Helping others and giving them a better experience has always been a highlight of my previous runs as a staff member for gateway. I would say I have a great time giving a helping hand to anyone that requires it and from last year's awards, the community thought so too as I received best staff newcomer 2020. This would translate into my staffing as it would allow me to once again assist the community that has helped me, and wasted so many days of my life, and have a better overall experience.
In a minimum of 50 words, if given a trial phase, how will you impact the community and what benefits will you bring to the staff team?
I will use new knowledge and pre-existing knowledge to make sure all current and future members are having fun without going overboard and feel welcome to the server. Also, help reduce the influx of players that join just to minge and break rules and get away with it for a bit. Also, I find myself to be quite active so I can take some of the work of other mods' hands and let them rest for 2 minutes. And last but not least I believe I am approachable with anything and work problems out with some players that have problems with staff ability or another player. And one final note this won't affect the community as much as mine but also give me the ability to showcase myself in a professional light and understand my role within the community and get a bigger picture. I haven't been a part of the community for as long as other people but I do believe I still have enough experience to understand my role and have the maturity to understand my failures and grow from them.
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 a given standard? This standard is varied, although a minimum of 20 hours per week is strongly advised. Do you understand that your application’s comments from other staff members are encouraged to be directed as harsh constructive criticism only and should never be intended to insult or discourage?
Disclaimer - Be advised, extremely low effort answers for the following questions will result in your application to be either put on hold until a better standard is reached, or outwrite deleted. Please refer to previously accepted applications or ask a current staff member to then influence your own unique response. (Any forged responses will result in a denied application)
A user is RDMing and insulting other users. You are the only staff available to deal with the situation. What do you do?
First I will check !logs to see who they RDMed and if they RDMed multiple people, then go to a secluded location using !administrate ^ and use !bring <name> then ask them "Why were you RDMing and disrespecting players as this is against server rules.” Depending on their response I would most-likely warn them but if they are cooperating, see if they has any active warnings for similar reasons and warn them for RDM then do !return <name>.
If I get another report of them doing the same thing I will do !logs to double-check if it was actually them RDMing and if it was, I will do !bring <name> and say “I have been told you have not followed my instructions which were to not disrespect players and RDM but you have done it again so I will be giving you a warning.” Depending on what they say I will give them a warning for RDM and player disrespect. But if there was a valid reason for the kill in logs I will then go look into it and find if someone was doing a PvP or a mini-event to see if they are accidentally team-killed. After the second warn a ban will be issued aswell.
A user has contested a warn you have given him and proceeds to verbally abuse you, what do you do?
Do !administrate ^ and go to a secluded location and do !bring <name> and tell them “Staff disrespect is a warn-able offense and if you continue to disrespect any staff member I will follow this up and warn you. I have given you this warning for a reason and if you believe it was unfair then do it properly and don't go around disrespecting any staff when they warn you if you believe it is unjust." Then do !return <name> and only give them a verbal warning. If they continue to disrespect any staff member then I will do !administrate ^ and go to a secluded location and tell them “I have given you a verbal warning for staff disrespect and told you to stop but as it seems you have not stopped so I will be warning you for staff disrespect.” then do !warn Staff disrespect and do !return <name>
A user has threatened to DDos and take down the server. What do you do?
I would go to a secluded location and do !bring <name> and tell them "DDoS attacks are not taken lightly and can and will result in a ban." Then if they were joking and they are sincerely sorry about it I will warn them and tell them "If you say anything like this ever again it will result in a permanent ban." And then do !return <name>. If they threaten to DDoS the server once more I will ban them for as long as I can then hand the matter off to higher staff as I cannot perm ban.
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?
I will do !administrate ^ and go out of the debrief and then !bring <name-1> and ask them what the problem is and what the argument is about and try to understand the situation and calm them down. Then I will !return <name-1> then !bring <name-2> and get their side of the situation. Then once I have heard both their sides of the story do !bring <name-1> and tell them "This a private matter so don't be arguing like that ever again as you are not only wasting the EM's debrief but also all the player wanting to hear the debrief so for that I will be giving both of you just a verbal warning today as arguing isn't a warn-able offense but I would recommend you guys hop off the server and calm down then talk about this in a discord or TS channel and come to an agreement as you are two high ranking members in your regiment and if your troopers saw that and now they may want to leave as you two were acting like children." Then !return <name-1>, !return <name-2>.
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?
First do !administrate ^ to see what they are doing and then go to the cadet room and do !bring <name> then in comms say need an SGT+ to cadet room to train a cadet. If no SGT comes I would either train him myself if I am an SGT+ or if I have to do something else I would say in comms I will randomly TP an SGT to train him. If I get a report that the cadet has NITRP I will then do !administrate ^ and go to a secluded location and then do !bring <name> and ask them "I have heard that you are walking around saying stuff and generally having no intent to role-play on this server so why have you joined in the first place?" Depending on their answer either do !return <name> or do !warn <name> NITRP Then if they do it again do !ban <name> NITRP 3 days. You see a higher ranking staff member abuse thier powers. What do you do?
Firstly if possible, I would record the situation or capture the event. Then I would check !slogs to gain more evidence of the commands used by the staff member at the time of the incident. Finally would provide the evidence to a managment member to provide an appropriate punishment. A user has been given tools for training. You discover they are abusing their tools by prop killing. What do you do?
First and for most I would take off the tools and move them to a secure location for a sit. Then proceed to ask them "Why were you abusing tools?". Depending on their answer I would tell them " Tools are a privilege and can be taken away from you if you are found abusing it." Then proceed with a tool ban for 2 weeks if found severe enough but if only a joke between friends in a training room with only the friends present then leave them with a verbal warn, otherwise the tool ban stays.
