Current in-game alias and or ranks:

BATCOM Shanny (Horn) / “Tucker” (HOPE) / Padawan Uncanny 

 

Previous notable Names/Ranks/Positions:

List your current playtime (in hours) on our Clone Wars RP servers (Main and Event server):

424 Hours in the server

What is your age? (Minimum of 14 years of age):

19

Do you have any active warnings? (Confirm with a staff member if unsure):

No, but my one RDM warn is still on my record 

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?

Yes

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?

I wanted to join the staff team to benefit the server and do my best as a user to make a good impact wherever i can and wherever needed. I also wanted to join the staff team as I am very comfortable with most staff and really want to be a part of the team. Team work really does make the dream work. Having staff abilities will only be more beneficial overall to the server in general but also the slots i play. I don't necessarily see it as “Power” but as capability and responsibility. And I am more than willing to step up into this to better the people around me as well as myself. 
 

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.

I have always really enjoyed helping others, as it is a core fundamental of my real life job and just something that makes me feel good and happy. Everybody needs help wherever they can, whether that be in the server or not. I’m sure i have a few people to vouch for me on the server when i say that i have been helping them at times when needed. And not putting myself first. Seeing other people happy or enjoy themselves is what makes me feel accomplished and then only I can start to relax. I have earned a few awards at my work that are in competition against the nation that has stated I have excellent customer service and am just a friendly staff member. In no way do I say this to be in a non-humble manner, rather just to show that I have been lucky enough to have been given these titles and I am capable of doing well. I think this will transfer into the staff role as said pretty much, i am willing to help anybody anytime : ) 
 

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?
Becoming a mod is something i have wanted to do for a long long time due to the fact that helping the server every way i can is all i want to do all of the jokes aside. There is nothing i like to see more than something like this succeed and continue to do well. Having players have a good experience is very important to the server, which can be done by good management and moderators. Me being a mod will benefit this server by having a friendly face and member of the community more active and helping out. I jump on mostly before main people are on the server which means i can have eyes on it keeping it under control when needed. As well as late at night i have experienced admins having to relaunch the game when they want to sleep just to stop things from going wrong on the server. I want to put a stop to this as i will most likely be there and are more than willing to help out anyone on the server at any time i am needed.

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?


Firstly the immediate reaction is to take the problem away from the situation which would mean to !bring the player away from where they are and others. Using this as a way to speak to the person to understand what is going on and defuse the situation. To make sure the information given is correct I can check the logs using /logs which will prove the story straight. Another thing to do is !bring the person who has claimed the RDM against the other player and get their side of the story too. This doesn't have to be a heated argument whatsoever, all it needs is to be sorted. 

The player who was claimed to be RDMing and Insulting others will be spoken too regardless if they have done it or not to be verbally warned that it is against the rules and to stay away from doing so before i bring them back. I would then get their sides of the story and investigate the situation, possibly asking bystanders and obviously they are not biased to the situation. If the user has indeed committed RDM they will be warned on the server using !warn and they will be on watch from me from then onwards. If this continues and they have no want to be on the server or respect the rules/RP then i will temporarily ban the user from the server using !ban .

A user has contested a warn you have given him and proceeds to verbally abuse you, what do you do?


If i am being verbally abused by the user i will try to calm them down and calm down the situation to speak about the manner calmly. If it is in a public area i will have to move the user and i to a different location with no one around so it doesn't create a scene and we can discuss it privately. I would then discuss why they believe they were wrongfully warned on the server. Definitely having someone else assess the situation with me would be preferred as two staff would ultimately be a smarter idea with making decisions to the user if they continued to abuse me/ be difficult. As Trial mod i want to have a second opinion but can work by myself if need be. Teamwork is always more effective and i strongly believe in that.

A user has threatened to DDos and take down the server. What do you do?


Having a user DDos/ Take down the server is a common phrase used by minges and people who are mad, but is absolutely not a risk worth taking to ignore. If anyone is in game (staff) i would notify them of the situation or i would go into TS/Discord to discuss the situation with them immediately. After all this is a threat, as well as one to the server. So a permanent ban would be issued to the user to ensure a stronger safety of the server.

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?


This situation to me is quite simple as they have been on the server long enough to know the rules and what they should and shouldn't do. I feel like if the situation is right to do so I would just verbally ask them to drop the argument or sort it out amongst themselves privately or just let it be. 

 I would quickly move the two out of debrief IF necessary and ask them what the issue is (provided I didn't quite catch it from the argument) and then try to resolve the issue. I would let them tell me their side of the story if need be, if the situation was too hot i would verbally ask them to relax and calm down.

 Then i could verbally tell them that i want to hear them out one by one, and then sort the issue. I only say verbally as these are officers of the server and should know better and will listen due to their actions having consequences. I could even possibly pm the EM to use the loud speaker if they are fine to do so and it doesn't bother them so the two guys wont miss a thing and could also help any troopers who didn't quite make it to debrief.

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?


Personally i would be more than happy to train the cadet myself, but would firstly ask if any sergeants+ need the cadet or would like to train the cadet for a task. There are people on the server who need to train a cadet for certain purposes as you all know. So they are first priority to the situation. I see a lot of people mention that they would !bring a random sergeant to the area to do it, but i personally would be more than happy to do it myself if i wasn't busy. If the user has no intent to roleplay i would have a conversation with them hearing them out or just encouraging them to give it a try. I joined never intending to play this for over a week and now i love this server, i have seen this with multiple people. I feel like we should always give someone a chance and if they don't want to be here they can leave. 
Scenerio 2: The cadet will not listen at all and has 100% no intention what so ever i will warn the user that is it fail RP and this is what the server is truly intended for. Worst comes to worst and the user continues their attitude i will kick them from the server given the right circumstances.

Shanny!

Really happy to see you going for this role, I have a few things to comment on for your application.

Firstly, with the RDM question, I would suggest diving more in to the aspect of the disrespect from the player, you speak more of the RDM as well as the disrespect side of it but just not as much. You mention, 'To make sure the information given is correct I can check the logs using /logs which will prove the story straight.', but this is something that wouldn't be as simple for an issue such as disrespect so I would love to see you edit it and describe more how you would investigate this aspect of the issue. 

Something I always highly suggest with moderator applications is providing yourself with various scenarios in each question, it allows for more detail and a better app in general. You somewhat do this in the Commanders arguing question, you say a lot of how you could do 'this, or this, or this' etc. But instead, I would suggest just writing more clearly in separate paragraphs how you could do one thing or another, and how you would handle a situation if it turned out like 'this, or this'. Probably a very confusing way of putting it, but I think you know what I mean, happy to elaborate if you don't.

With the last question, I enjoy the way you responded to it however I think you need to write more of what you would do if the Cadet really had no intent to RP and only wanted to minge (continuously). So pretty much, you couldn't just speak to him and say how it is a great server, but you would need to warn or possibly kick them, depending on the severity. Again, you can provide yourself multiple scenarios in this question.

In general Shanny, your app is good enough but more important you're a great bloke, very well known. Although I would like to see some more activity from you, you are a great friend, very kind, calm and more and deserve a chance for the Trial phase. Best of luck mate.

Some of these edits are great and I am glad you took your time to do them. If you want to do more, I would suggest just formatting the app a bit better, possibly have a colour code to make it easier to read. However, this is definitely not compulsory but is completely up to you.

Shanny is reliable, trustworthy and in general a great individual on the server. Through his time in Horn Company, I have found that Shanny is one of the friendliest individuals, and also one of the most helpful. I must admit, that I have a bias towards him, however, as he has stepped into the 2nd IC position of Horn Company he has continued to show these values, which are critical to being a moderator. Shanny is also able to deal with any problems that arise, which has been seen within my regiment, so I believe that he would be able to do this as a moderator as well.

In conclusion, there are many reasons to support Shanny's application, and little to no reasons to not do so. +1
