1. I'm always willing to learn. If I don't know how to do a certain task, I will try my best to learn how to accomplish it.
2. I'm hardworking. If i set my mind on something, I will do everything possible to achieve it.
3. I'm helpful. You probably get this one a lot, but I am very helpful. If there is ever a player on a server that needs help, I always try to assist them to the best of my ability.
4. I'm fun. I'm always cheering people up! Whether it's my jokes, my juggling, or my music, I'm always putting smiles on other peoples faces.
5. I'm a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. Now Taekwondo isn't only about fighting/self defense, my high rank also shows perseverance, loyalty, honesty, and many other positive attributes.
Do you have knowledge of bukkit: I have a decent knowledge in bukkit. I was an admin on my friends old bukkit server and have learned the basics about the plugin.
What is your past experience: Like I said previously, I was an admin on my friends old server which taught me the very basics about server management. I am also a current MIT (Mod in Training) on a server called MCPixelCraft. Not related to Minecraft but I have attended NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training) which has taught me many useful leadership skills.
Have you read everything in this post: I have indeed.
What can you contribute to the team:
1. I'm home schooled so i can play when other people can't. I could assist players on the server and while other members/staff are at school.
2. I could help other members that need help.
3. By being friendly. By just being friendly I could cheer up distressed members, giving them an altogether better experience.
Can you somewhat build? I'm pretty decent when it comes to building. I like to build for fun a lot and my friends tell me that my builds are pretty cool.
Anything else? Not really. I'm just really glad your giving me this opportunity to apply for a staff member.
What makes you fit to be a Mod: My experience, loyalty, patience.
Do you have knowledge of bukkit: I do have knowlege of bukkit and spigot.
What is your past experience: I know minecraft for 4 years now and i have 3 years working on different server as moderator.
Have you read everything in this post: I have, trust me mate!
What can you contribute to the team: I can contribute a lot. I can do a lot. But the most important thing i can do for this server, is that i can make their players enjoy, not only the server, but the chat. I am mature, loyal, friendly, experienced, fast typer and i know when a player is lying or not. I do hate cheaters and i have banned a lot cheaters in my past and i know whenever they are hacking or not. I know when someone is lying or saying the truth. I know all the players character. Experience is important!
Can you somewhat build? I am sorry for that but my building skills are not good.
cba to fill out an app, promise you i have built professionally for 3 years now. Give me world edit and you wont be displeased. add my skype so we can talk. dont worry im not a sqweeker either, age:20 skype: Roy.russell526
I am kind yet firm when talking to someone, whether it is a player or fellow staff member
I take servers that I am staff on very seriously
I am a dedicated worker
I understand the responsibilities of being a Mod
I do not abuse my powers
I believe that when you are firm, you sound more professional. However, if you are too firm, then you sound rude, unintelligent, and bossy. If you are in between firm and kind, you sound very professional. I believe all staff should be professional.
If staff don’t take the server seriously, how will the server grow? If I am a Mod, I will take the server very seriously, because a server with undedicated staff is a bad server.
I am very dedicated to what I do, whether it is a hobby in real life, or something online. Once I set my mind to something, there is no stopping me. I will do the same thing if I’m a Mod, and will set my mind to the job until I am finished.
On another server that I have been a staff member on, people abused their powers as staff, which ultimately led to the server’s demise. If staff don’t abuse their powers, then I think the server will generally prosper.
I have seen way too many staff members abuse their power, and I think that’s just plain wrong. Staff members are supposed to be professional, (not using their powers for evil, so to speak). Whenever staff members abuse their power, it always makes me feel empty inside, because it’s just so wrong.
Do you have knowledge of bukkit:
I do not have knowledge of Bukkit. I have never been a Dev on any server, and I have absolutely NO experience with plugins. I do however, know plenty of commands (/temp ban, /temp ban reason, /mute, /temp mute, etc.)
What is your past experience: I have been a Chat-Mod (Helper) on a server called Astibora, and a Mod on a server called MoribundMC. Some Builders and Devs on Astribora greifed the server, and the owner had to close it. So many people resigned that the server just couldn’t run anymore. Everything that went on in this server was very unprofessional (no offense).
On MoribundMC, the server ran out of funds, and they didn’t have enough players, so the server had to close. I never had to use my powers as a Mod on this server, mostly because there were only about five players. The server was only up for 2 weeks, but it was pretty fun. It was a vanilla survival server.
Have you read everything in this post: I have not read all the applications, but I have read the rules that you stated above. You talked about how the server has been up for a couple of months and needs staff. You want to start out with a prison server but hope to expand it into a network. You need people/staff to help, build, suggest ideas and report bugs.
What can you contribute to the team:
I have a recording software which I can use to catch hackers
I am great with helping others
I have some experience with other servers which may help this server grow
I am kind and have a great personality
I am professional and treat everyone equally
I never swear
I can help other staff members with issues they may have
If a staff member doesn’t have a recording software, how can they catch hackers? I think this is very important.
A lot of what staff members do is help others. I will try to equally help players and other staff members. I am fair when I help people and will not ban/mute anyone without a reason.
The first time being a staff member is always the hardest. Once you have some experience, things get a lot easier in my opinion.
If staff members are not kind, how can people take them seriously? All staff members should be kind and considerate and should not get mad at people.
I never discriminate; that’s just plain wrong. Everyone on the server should be treated equally, whether it is a player or staff member.
Staff members should never swear. They mute players for swearing, so why should they swear themselves? The whole point is to make it so that the server is swear-free, because to me, the environment is a lot calmer and less stressful when there is no swearing going on.
I love to help people, and if a fellow staff member needs help, I’m happy to help them with any issues they may have, assuming it is within my abilities.
Can you somewhat build? I have built on Astribora before, but I’m not amazing. I would like to think of myself as an average builder. I can certainly build things, but you may want to tweak some of my builds if I’m building for the server. Please note that I don’t love building too much. I find it slightly boring.
Anything else? I know I’m only 12, but I hope I will get a spot :). Sorry for making you read this overly long application.
