Admin Application, Tl0W

In-game Username: Tl0W
Discord username: TLOW#7805
Characters you play: Quite a few. Russel Costello, Destroys-the-Station, Saves-the-Station, and a couple more that I have completely forgot and rarely play as.
How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14?
According to steam, 211 hours. I do often leave the launcher open though, so it may be lower than that.

How many hours are you available per day: About 8 hours a da on the normal weekday, this may vary sometimes. I try to play a round or two near 6 PM to 8.
Days you are available on: Almost everyday. I often stay up at night (unhealthy habit, I know), so I’ll probably be active even late into a weekday.

Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this:
None. I believe I’ve had some experience**  in **** authority ** roles, but besides that I haven’t been an admin before.
Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before?
I have been warned for using the name of a fictional character. I believe that’s the most trouble I’ve been in with admins before. I have shit memory, so I may be wrong.

This is the more essay-y part of the application, you should answer the following questions in detail, so we can get a better idea of how you’d approach adminning.

What role do you think game admins serve on our servers?
Admins are trusted members of the server. They are designed to punish rule breakers, listen to player feedback, and help players as they must. Admins are supposed to be unbiased in their punishments, and are to apply the server rules to everyone in the server. They are to make the roleplay and general gaming experience**  better by banning/warning the common shitters and be of assistance to lost people. When there are no rule breakers on the server that day - which is a rare day - they are to make sure things don’t go too long. Sometimes, admins may spice up the round. This is not the primary objective of an admin, but rather an event to cause excitement for players aboard the station. In all, admins should punish rule breakers fairly and just and they should listen to players.**

How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server?
I myself have not seen too much roleplay on the server. I feel that this is mainly due to the mentality that it isn’t enforced to roleplay, which can be both bad and good. Sometimes, you may have a great MRP session on the round, other times not so much. Roleplay is in the eye of the beholder, after all. Personally** , I am a bit of a supporter of MRP. I have had a handful of MRP **** experiences  throughout the game, but the times where I haven’t didn’t particularly  take a dwell on the game either. MRP may be preferred by some just as LRP is. Although, an MRP **** experience**** (from my knowledge) is mostly isolated. By that I mean: The Service Crew could be having drinks and** reminiscing**  on good times, maybe even having a good laugh or two with one another while the Command Crew is making poopoo jokes in the midst of a nuclear operative attack. My main idea here is that MRP is a rare sight because of lack of enforcement. And honestly, I see no problem with that.**

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?
I feel like I don’t see much moderation going around (no offense to the admins). I may just be seeing things through a greytide’s lenses, but things seem to be in that chaotic state usually where an admin would intervene. I may just be over exaggerating**. I also would like to be able to contribute to this community more. I love it so much and I’d hate to see it collapse due to some shitters driving away the actual rule- abiding  players. Me being an admin could open up more **** opportunities ** for me to actually make a good difference in this great server. All in all, I’d love to contribute to the process and hopefully I can call myself one of y’all soon. If not, that’s fine and I wish you the best of luck.

We’ve decided to not accept this application, but you’re free to apply again in the future.
