Some of you might remember me by Rsg, Gelly, what have you, I really don't care because all of those people are me.
I left when I tried changing to 1.8 and I couldn't reconnect. Stupid bloody way to give up on such a valuable server.
Lockdown was my life, you guys. I remember a lot of things from its inception to its collapse.
I remember going ham and Duff posting that picture of me freaking out because guards were being unfair. My thought process at that time was like "well, I've seen Verita do it, so why can't I?" I quickly learned that Verita had never actually done that, and I'd fabricated that excuse to support myself. I remember making a looooot of mistakes throughout the history of this server - moving the entire prison over a block, fighting with friends, causing uproars over silly things I did and being overall hated by a lot of people sometimes. Had I never been here, I would have never learned how to become a peacemaker and a leader in real life. A lot of silly old people say that video gaming has no soul to it - I claim it can have just as many dramas, experiences, and times to learn - probably more because the Internet accelerates a lot. Had I not been here, I would have never been the person I am now and learned how to deal with people in general. I've somehow become extroverted as a result of Lockdown, and I heavily thank you all for it.
Of course, I didn't ONLY make mistakes on here - as much as it looked like it. I was a major player in how people worked with one another - I liked being a friend to all, newbies and experienced players alike. I'd like to think that me helping a lot of newer people is part of the reason why people became so involved with the community. I invented events and played them out to no end, with people flurrying in a frenzy over silly things like DTW (actually DTW is to this day one of the most fun games I've ever run ever).I fought against a lot of haters to the server in the most peaceful way I could, and sometimes patched up things with people from the other side to make things better. Though we had people like "the Viva", that one british griefing guy that we managed to stop, and the whole hullabaloo with the server being overtaken by some naughty people, all situations were fixed in due time and it's helped me become a leader in how to handle tense situations. Tensions no longer an enemy - it's a situation to be fixed. Sure, it sounds like it's all bad, but I've become a better person for it. I miss people like AyoChristopho, Cerealguy, Goku - even Parthin, though they were once my mortal blood enemies. I've mellowed TF out.
The most important thing this server ever did for me is let me screw aroudn with its redstone and try to devise random things to help it out. The cafeteria was one of my most favorite projects and it let me mull over the intricacies of redstone and become a better redstoner. Now, redstone is pretty petty in comparison to "being extroverted" and "being a peacemaker", but it's the most important thing of all. I'm going to college to become a computer engineer, and I don't think I would have developed an interest for that had it not been for redstone. That's right, you guys - instead of being a ballerina, my childhood dream, you've all defiled it into computer engineering. Thanks a lot, you jerks XP. In all seriousness, though, had I not been on this server, I would have never resolved a career path for myself.
I love you all. I'm not going to list names because I'm going to forget to put at least 7/8ths of you and that would be rude of me. If I'm going to thank anyone, though, it would be Verita. You're still MelonMod to me, and it's mostly your fault I'm standing here as an attractive hot guy and not a scrawny nerd. Thank you guys so much for being here.
Turn down for what? (see, i was always terrible at these bloody emotional "oh look, i'm leaving sorry guise" i think you'll find that my retirement post was at least this bad of an ending if not worse. i mean, it's like mass effect 3 bad, and this is only, oh, i don't know, oculus-the-movie bad of an ending. look, i'm trying to be funny and it's totally not working. hm, see, here's the issue. what if instead of ending this post with a trap song, i somehow ended it with a mic drop. let's see how i can screw that up!)
*mic drop, awkwardly falling onto my foot* (uhhhh, well then, that went terribly, i think i should cut this post and cut my losses before i hit some sort of character limit. this has got to be the most boring thing to read ever. uhhhhhhhh, screw it.)
Katt, will you marry me?

Jul 18, 2014IGN: rsgelharPosted in: PC Servers
Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST)
Do you understand the rules?: I fully understand and accept the current rules.
What times will you be available to be online?: At this stage, it tends to be very erratic, but I have been on from 11:00 MST - 9:00 MST
Can you be online during weekends? (Friday- Sunday): That's usually when I am on, so yes.
Current Rank: Free
Are you staff on any other server?: Currently, a TTT server by GFL clan. One of the most popular, I am a Trial Admin with such responibilities and slaynr, gag, and mute.
Why should we pick you: I really would prefer not to write a five-page essay on the subject, nor would I want to force anyone to read that amount of BS. You may be asking, "Why, after such a long hiatus of playing minecraft, would you ever return to Lockdown?" To that I say, what the hell makes you such a Debbie Downer? Shouldn't you be excited/ proud that I'm ready, looking, and willing to become one of your best Chat Moderators? I'll quickly sum up some easy points to show why I'm ready and why I should be picked, even though there was a pretty explicit statement via my resignation from Warden I wouldn't be coming back:
I've had about a year and a half with responsibilities that go even above and beyond what is required of a chat mod. I've dealt with a good majority of people that come in and out of the server on a regular basis and understand how that all works. I've, since my resignation from Warden, been an admin of at least two TTT servers and have become widely accepted in their circles as "the charismatic and freaky one". I know people. I know rules. I know a lot of stuff, and that experience is hella valuable.
I would prefer not to make any bold statements after coming back after such a long time, but I think a lot of people would recommend me for becoming a Chat Moderator. The first three Staff Members I asked gave me the recommendation here. I could probably ask more, and I wouldn't mind doing so. I love y'all. And I'm not just saying that drunk.
You all know who I am (except maybe jookes, and to you I say what's up bro I love your hair). I know who you all are (and to jookes, I hope I get to know you better because I love your hair). You understand I'm determined, charismatic, understanding, not a jerk. If it's lost on you who I am, just get in a Skype call with me for like 5 minutes and you'll get caught up post-haste and godspeed.
I'm a fun person. I mean, yeah, I'd like to think so. Any and all refutations can be directed to my minecraft mail, in which case I'll respond wittily and with no regard of moral and personal lines.
[By Applying for the moderator position you will not request an admin to look at your app] Yes, I understand.
Anything else?: I'd like to conclude that I understand my acceptance. I understand my rejection. I don't understand quantum mechanics, but who cares? You hopefully know me. You hopefully see all that I'm aiming at. I'll answer any questions.

Hello there, in case you don't know me, and I suspect that's the case for like 99% of you, I'm ieatyou1 and I used to be a HR Security on this server, but I'm not any more and I do check in on this server here and there and first of all I'd like to wish the new guards and Chat Mods luck in their new "jobs" if you will. I'd also like to say a friendly hello to the 1% that do remember me.
Lol as much as nostalgia usually gives me intense feelings of simultaneous remorse and euphoria, I remember you, but you were just there.
Make an impression on me this time XD

Jul 15, 2013Maybe I can own the 500th page :3Posted in: PC Servers
edit: YES, I am the winner of the prizes! Bow down before me in glory as I own thine 500th page, thine peasants!
This is a really exciting time in Lockdown history, really, to think of all the ban appeals and applications and what-not we've gone through to get to thie goalmark.
May it live on :3

People trying to cause ruckus, as always. Reading the book tumid gave where it said if saying anything was instantly "a ban" was only true for Tumid
Thank you for your time :B
