Hello everyone! My name is ApexHazard, formally known as Josh, firstly I'd like to thank you for taking the time out of your days to read my long and boring application, since this is technically my introduction and if you knew me you'd know I drag my conversations out for way too long, but I'm here to keep this short (well as short as I can do) so do enjoy reading
ps. I am looking for a server that averages around 50 plus users that I can interact with on a day to day basis.
oh and also don't take my lack of forum posts as me being a "noob" I just created this account with the intention to increase my opportunity in hopes of finding the perfect server
IGN (In Game Name):
My current IGN is ApexHazard
Date of application:
Friday 8th December, 2017 (Take into account i'm from New Zealand so no, it's not a mistake and i'm not from the future)
I am currently 17 years of age
I currently lived in New Zealand, Mount Maunganui
I have no clue what to call it so I googled and apparently i'm UTC+12
Why do you want to be staff?:
I would like to become staff member on your server because I love meeting and getting to knew new people from all around the world and what better way to do that other than through the ever loving Minecraft community.
But genuinely believe it's important to have a server with great gamemodes and features. However, it is more important to have a server with a thriving and kind community, I like to think of my staff position as a real job, and I will certainly treat it as a real job. I have met so many helpful and kind people. And now, I would like to reciprocate that kindness and helpfulness to the new players that I will hopefully come across in my staffing career. It would be amazing to know that everyday I am able to put smiles on the community's faces and I think that is the most important thing you can do as a staff member.
Describe how you think you could make a difference as a Staff Member:
I would bring my full foot forward and provide the best quality work that I can deliver to the server, community and staff team. I've had this ambition, which is that I able to come on everyday knowing that I have helped someone. No matter who it is, I like to help people. There was one point in all of our 'Minecraft' careers where we knew nothing of the network. However, when we first joined there were always those staff members and players even who would help us by answering your questions and helping you find your way and hopefully that will be me one day.
I believe I have certain qualities that will contribute to making a difference. The first quality is being patient and helpful. I feel that being patient with players is very important. Instantly getting angry or mad at a player for doing a certainly thing or breaking a rule won't help your case in any way. But treating the situation with patience and the best possible help will contribute to you successfully solving the problem. The next quality that I possess is the ability to write. I could also write tutorials and guidelines for the community and staff team members. When I was an Admin (on a small ish faction server), I would always write update posts for the community to inform them about new releases and additions. The community benefited from this because they got the chance to find out the new releases that they can try out.
I consider myself the type of person that likes to be very laid back but at the same time, very strict in terms of rules. I will certainly bring my full foot forward as I said, while I am in a staff position. I believe that staff are constantly dealing with situations that need more detail and analyzing to solve, and I feel staff would definitely be able to do this by bringing it their all. I am also very accepting of ones opinions, self & beliefs. I will respect any and all player's beliefs and opinions, because I too have my own. I do think it's important to be a accepting and welcoming staff member, where everyone feels important, and is treated the same. No matter who the player is, whether it's your friend or an admin, it is still important to respect their beliefs, opinions etc. And this goes for any player, and not just the ones who are applying.
Do you have Discord and a microphone?:
Yes I currently have Discord and a microphone. However, I rarely use Discord unless it's an important event/reason.
What time are you most often on? (Your time):
These are the brackets of time I am available to come online. These times are not how long I will be online for, only times I am free and not doing other activities.
My school year is coming to an end and I am now on end of year break for 7 weeks (search up New Zealand Schooling Dates if you're a tad confused) but yes, I have 1 week left of school and from the 8th December on-wards my schedule will be changed completely and I will update.
