How old are you? : 21

Do you have any SS14 experience outside of Wizard’s Den servers, or any SS13 experience? : Not at all.

Do you have prior administration experience (SS13/SS14 experience preferred, please also post a way for us to verify this)? : I’ve had no admin experience.

Have you ever been banned from any SS14 or SS13 servers? : I’ve never been banned from any sever on SS14 and SS13

Admins have the ability to perform various tasks which are not available to the average player. An incomplete list of these tasks is: in-game rule enforcement, in-game events, ban appeals, and out-of-game rule enforcement through things like replay/log reviews in response to player reports. With these, and any other tasks you’re aware of in mind, answer the following two questions.

What are you primarily interested in doing as an admin? : To assist anyone who’s currently having trouble with the game, and to try provide help with troubling players when i can.

What are you least interested in doing as an admin? : I’m not fully sure about replays/log reviews, but mostly cause I’m not entirely sure on how they work, and i wouldn’t mind learning how, and also dealing with problematic players, but I’ll be willing to help when ever I’m able to!

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?

To assist with any questions new players might have, to report any bugs found by the admins or the players, and to stop anyone from disrupting the game for anyone else.

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?

Mostly because i want people to enjoy the game that i find really enjoyable, and wanting to be apart of an awesome community.

How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the servers?

I feel like it’s a way more enjoyable experience because people play into their character way more, which creates unique scenarios all around the station!

Other than banning problematic players, what admin actions do you believe have the biggest positive impact?

Being able to assist new players in feeling welcomed into each round and to be able to make each round fun for everyone.

Have you ever had a negative experience in the game or with a game admin? If so what, if anything, would you do to prevent other players from experiencing this?

I’ve had no negative experience with any admins and no bad experiences with the game yet.

Have you ever had a good experience with the game or a game admin? If so, what was it?

I’ve had positive experiences with some of the admins, They were able to assist me with some issues i was having, they kept each round interesting, and all around kind!
and i’ve had tons of good experiences within the game, like one time i was a Chaplin and the zombies were on the station, i acted all paranoid saying stuff like “Don’t let those Sinners in!” while having barricaded most possible entrances from zombies to come from, then the sec team arrived to assist with their shields but having to break the barricades so survivors could get to the evac, then i was saying “You fool!, you are letting too many potential infected in here!”, minutes later zombies got into the room, the evac arrived too late, and the station was overun by the undead, by far the best time i had!

The following are scenarios, respond with how you would handle each as an administrator. Respond with the assumption that you are an administrator with full access to the admin tools, and that you have all the knowledge needed to use these tools. Respond in detail, explain the reasons behind decisions you make and describe any assumptions you are making. When you need to make an assumption, it is preferred for you to describe how differences in the assumption would affect your actions.

I t is the start of the round. There are 60 players on the server. The game mode is traitors, traitors have not been selected yet. There are three players who decided to observe the round instead of join it orbiting you. Two of them are encouraging you to “do something funny”.

I would most likely not do anything since it’s the start of the round as that would disrupt the games balance, and if they kept going on about it i’d just say no and go invisible to stop them pestering

You see a clown using crayon to write on the floor in front of security. The clown writings are negative things about security, like “shitsec”. A secoff tells the clown that they’re being arrested for vandalism, stuns them, and cuffs them. Before the secoff is able to get the clown into the brig, a passenger slips the secoff, causing them to lose their baton, then uses the baton to stun another secoff that comes to help as the clown runs away. The passenger escapes through disposals. Having heard an AOS radio callout, the detective enters maintenance near disposals and shoots the passenger to crit. There are four players in this scenario, the clown, the passenger, the secoff, and the detective.

I’d say the clown getting arrested is fine, until the passenger slips the secoff and uses the baton, as the passenger is self antaging by assisting the clown who’s getting arrested to escape, the detective shouldn’t have shot him to crit, as he was no active threat and could have used a disabler to disarm and arrest the passenger or shot them with non lethals.

You and another admin have been adminning for around an hour. The rate of issues has been easily manageable due to having 2 admins. Neither of you have been talking in admin chat. You are using ahelp to warn a player for breaking a rule when the other admin joins the ahelp and confirms that it is against the rules, but that it’s fine in this case and they can ignore the rule for the rest of the round. You haven’t taken any other admin actions yet, such as applying a ban or writing a note.

in this case i’d ask why it’s fine why they are allowed to break the rules, if i don’t get a great reason as of why I’d message a more experienced admin and explain if they are allowed to be allowing players to break the rules, if none happen to be on, then I’d tell them to stop breaking rules, even if the other admin said it was fine, and I’d try to get a better understanding on what rule was broken if i am able. and I’d send this issue to a more experienced admin.
