How long have you been playing SS13 or SS14?

I’ve started playing SS13 around 2015 in french communities mainly.

How many hours are you available per day: 3 weekdays, more week-ends
Days you are available on: Any (may change, but at least once a week)

Prior administration experience (SS13 experience recommended). Please also post a way for us to verify this: I have created and administered a french SS13 community for over a year. Sadly nothing is left of it, as the owner of the server deleted the wiki I made. Our Bay-based codebase is still around on Github tho. It was a really low-pop community, as the french SS13 community is kinda dead.

Have you been banned from our game servers or SS13 servers before?

Never, but I don’t play much on english servers. I’ve only played TG and Bay



What role do you think game admins serve on our servers?

In general, I think game admins should be here to make the game interesting and take care of problems. Game admin is both a community manager AND a game master, and last, a cop, sometimes. Game admins aren’t there to enforce how the game should be played tho. Bay admins have been criticized a lot for that and I know that’s not what type of game admin I am. Sometimes I think it’s important to propose new events for the community to strive and not get bored. A game admin should also be able to code at least a little, or even map.

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

I am an Hi-RP player. I like slow paced realistic SS1X, without the butthurt serious business stuff. Hi-RP can be fun and I advocate for that. I know that the majority of the servers aren’t HRP, and the state of SS14 as of right now doesn’t allow much stakes for the players. Though I’m convinced in the future that an SS14 codebase can be made more suitable for Hi-RP.

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?

First of all, because IRL I’m a game designer and I do game mastering in tabletop RPGs. I like to provide new events for players to enjoy and really be the almighty god that will mistreat them in an enjoyable way. I think I can learn so much from being an SS14 admin, and bring much more than I could in dev. Also, I would love to create an SS14 french community. It is hard, but I’m convinced it’s possible, and it’s one step towards that.
