More or so none, I can faintly remember my experiences and cannot prove any of them.

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

No, however I remember 2 distinct situations where I have received a fair warning from a Wizden admin.

1.  Ticketed by Kayek, happened like half a year (or several months) ago, on Lizard with 40(?) pop on a derotated map I cannot remember the name of.
The entirety of the station decided to group up at sci and ask them to “teach” them, referring to scientists as “teachers”, while it was in essence a really weird riot.
Sec caught up on that and tried to disperse the crowd, Lizard being Lizard the entire thing resulted in a self-antaggy mess, I took a part in this and (I think?) cuffed and stripped down the HoS and Captain in the midst of the fight with half the station around. Can’t remember if I argued in the ahelp but I probably did.

  1. Ticketed by Kroma, happened like half a year (or more/less) ago, on Lizard with an unknown pop on some old Bagel version.
    Station was having a really scuffed plasma flood and I at the time for some reason decided to pull a prank on the first head to enter the bridge by slipping, cuffing, and dressing them in a clown(?) outfit, while this already is an ehh situation I by accident took it further when the HoS, and then the Captain, and then the CE showed up, ending in me panicking and forcing a combat scenario on the bridge for about 7~ minutes, at the end I killed the Captain, realized that it’s probably not really good that I’m doing this, conceded, went and attempted to clone the Captain whom by this point was SSD, then arrested by the HoS and thrown in a cell.
    Later on, apologizing to the Captain on Discord.

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?

Primarily enforcing the rules, administrating and making sure the round goes smoothly while handling ahelps and looking out for unreported rulebreakers.
Secondarily making the round more fun. Whether by answering to interesting prayers/ahelp requests, hosting events or aiding the round in taking a more interesting course as well as teaching interested players about the mechanics of the game.

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

It’s alright I’d say. I primarily play on Lizden rather than Salamander and see that more people contribute to the more game-y mechanically pleasing side of the game rather than the roleplaying side, I’ve heard that Salamander has it much better, but I don’t play enough of it to say for certain.
A lot of people however contribute to roleplay very well, and I think the playerbase even if diluted by the fact that the game’s really accessible and quite easy to learn, in comparison to SS13, is capable of interesting roleplay and do it quite well. (Even if there’s one good roleplayer for 2+ shitters)

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?

Interest, self-growth and my passion for this game.
I’ve never really been an administrator before, and I think that it’s an interesting opportunity to learn and experience a lot of new concepts and mechanisms, to that I’d guess it would help if I had more experience on the topic of adminning and dealing with people.

I also see this as a wonderful opportunity to decrease admin-less hours on Lizard and teach new players about the game, as I’ve heard ahelps are quite often used for help.
I personally would like to be a Lizden admin because I deem that it’s a more interesting experience, and because (I think?) it’s in high demand.

To this, I’m a native Russian speaker, thus I can handle all sorts of scenarios involving Russian players and speech occurring on Lizden.

Please reply on Discord ninrub#7795 on the status/important comments of/about the application.

While your application is great and we would otherwise allow you to be a trial admin, due to previous incidents on Discord we are not confident that you are over the age of 18, which we require for all administrators.
