Character names:Jake Jarvis, John Normandy, Xiquilixqip Sherup'Gell
How long have you been playing on Aurora?:about a year now.
Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:Well, I’ve been thinking of doing a Command Whitelist for ages now, I just never really thought about doing it up until now. I think it would be really cool to have a command character, and join the ranks of command. Sometimes I feel like I could do well in a command posistion, that's not security intensive like HoS, so I'm thinking of putting it to the test. I would never make Jake a HoS mostly because being a HoS is... stressful. I have felt like making a HoP in the past and it seems like I could do well with that.
Why did you come to Aurora?:Well, I recently left college, and I was bored, and the SSeth video reminded me of SS13, I’ve been playing the game since 2012 now, and I was reminded of it after I took a long break from it. I decided to do some HRP servers, and the thing that drew me to this server were Hardsuits funny enough. I remember the server being key for having Hardsuits, I stuck around because I enjoy playing with this community, the admins are pretty chill, I have made many friends here as well, the events are also fantastic.
Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes.
Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? I’ve got like… 29 notes, and I’ve had two warnings that expired months ago, the warnings were for minor things that I used to do back in the day, but I believe I have learned from my mistakes and become a much better roleplayer on this server.
Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.
Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:Roleplaying is about taking an idea, a character, or a story, into your hands, and making it your own. Having other people take part in the story to improve on the roleplay, and having fun overall, create that story by making a character and involve them in events, situations and just talking to people in general. Roleplay is taking a story, and making it your own.
What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:Heads of Staff are there to help drive a story, when an antag comes aboard, it is your job, if you are the only command member at the time, is to communicate with the crew, keep them in the loop so they feel involved in the antag’s story/gimmick. As the only command member sometimes, you just need to help everyone you can, people will rely on you.
What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Whitelisted players serve has some form of mentor role I think, when someone is new to the server, they can look to you, who has a Command Whitelist, that they can ask you questions, and you can answer them. If I was to up-hold this, I would do my best to help everyone I can, if I see someone running around struggling I would ask if they need any help in LOOC. If they need more help, I will A-Help them and see if a moderator/admin can help them out a bit more than I could.
IC, I think as I said above, Command members are there to help drive a story in the round, and keep other players involved in the current round happenings.
Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career?: Diemi has been working in the Republic of Elyra all his life, from a young age he was all about making money, doing jobs for people while he was young, trading items for other items, valuables for valuables. As he grew older, he became a business man, a some-what successful business man working in the capital, making the credits and doing usual business man stuff, however it all took a change when the Lii'dra somewhat recently invaded. Killing his father who he looked up to a lot, which caused him to have an almost natural hatred for Vacura, even if they are not Lii'dra. He has a dislike for Skrell as well, thinking the Federation are full of them selves, being better than everyone else. Hearing about the recent... "attack" on the Federation archives almost brings a smile to his face. War is great for business afterall...
What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?:I will make a Head of Personnel, I plan to make other afterwards, such as my Skrell Scientist Xiq, into a Research Director one day, after he has become more known and been on the station long enough.
Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking:I will be making a Head of Personnel, (or a captain.) Depends on how I decide to make them once I finish them up, Jake will never be Command, Normandy will never be an RD, my Skrell will be an RD ONE day. As it stands for now however, I will make a HoP or a Captain, (going for the big one here ooo boy.) Because form personal experience I do not see them a lot.
The HoPs name will be Diemi Mayaki (Pronounced, Di-Emi May-Aki), a human male standing at around 6ft, the ethnicity of "Wasat" from Perispolis in the Republic of Elyra.
How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Perhaps a 6 or 7, I like to think I have improved over my time playing. Some people have noted that I have improved as well.
Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?: Yes, as with any other whitelist, it can be stripped at a moments notice. Though these are more strictly combed.
Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?: Yes.
Extra notes:Hi mom, hi dad. You know who you are.
