How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Around a year and a half, if I remember correctly. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: More job and character opportunities, mainly. Why did you come to Aurora?: Saw it on the server one day, and decided to try it out. Stuck with it because I enjoyed the first few rounds I had. 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 have warnings and notes, but I have never been banned. My most recent warnings were for dominating someone on the shuttle and starting a fight, ordering items without sufficient IC reason, and for going SSD without heading to cryo.
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: Roleplay is putting yourself in the body of another person and creating narratives about them and the people they interact with.
What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Heads of staff assist new players in their department, and determine the course of the round. They are also supposed to make sure that their department runs efficiently and doesn't fall apart at the first setback. Having a Head of Staff also gives other members of the department more opportunities. For example, a Head of Security would be able to authorize training exercises for their department.
What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Whitelisted players are examples or rolemodels for other people to follow. The best way for me to do that is to perform my job competently and professionally, while being accompanying to newcomers. For the most part, a head of staff should be an example of a realistic and high-quality character, and not a "meme."
Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau Ceti and how it affected your character and their career? Tau Ceti is still recovering from the activities of the SLF, and tensions between Tajarans affiliated with different political factions are also rising, due to the civil war escalating. My Head of Personnel, Sam Campbell, is more wary of IPCs after the recent string of attacks, as he generally supports the status quo of indentured servitude in regards to synthetics. He has put additional effort into learning about the various political factions of the galaxy, to improve his communication.
What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?: I plan to try and play most if not all of the command roles, but I am specifically interested in being a Head of Security, consular, Head of Personnel, and eventually a captain.
Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:
Sinclair Khaing, Head of Security
Sam Campbell, Head of Personnel.
Morne Ayomide, EPMC/Eridani consular.
How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 8/10, I'd like to say I have improved my roleplaying over time, and have become more experienced
Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Yes.
Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? I have, yes.
Extra notes: It was this or apply for a Unathi whitelist, but I felt like I wanted this more.
