  1. I have seen no improvement in regards to their history on the server. As such, I can only support the request at this time. Although I would seriously consider just banning them from Discord, since I do not think restricting server access will be required. This will be discussed among staff, and assigned to someone to handle (most likely a headmin, given the case).
  2. Let's remain on-topic here. If that's an issue, report it on Github if it hasn't been already. This is not a thread about the maintenance access.
  3. I fully endorse this application, if it wasn't clear enough. Kyres way more fit for the role that the current applicants (just me!). Knows his stuff, has the full trust of the lore team, and was already in charge of such position previously. Big yas!
  4. Alrighty! With that out of the way, you'll enter your trial phase now, which will last for 7 days. Trial will start today 01/DEC/2019 and will end on the 7/DEC/2019 (inclusive). Good luck!
  5. Hello. Apologies for the delay on this application. I've decided not to ask any further questions after re-reading the whole thing. Most of my doubts will get answered once I can get a grisp on how to do during your trial, since they are mostly aimed towards the practical part of it. In any case, there's something I want you to ammend before I make a decision: You are being asked what the OOC purpose of a head is, and you replied with an IC definition. Please review this and answer the question properly. Quote me when you do reply to this. I intend to make a decision today or tomorrow at most.
  6. Hm. Potentially could do the 'alarm' or announcement only trigger if the glass is broken. But it could be swipped open with a command-level ID.
  7. After reading through a few suggestions, what about we put a few of them together? We can make it a glass-cage thing that is located in a wall within the bunker's command center, which requires a Command-level ID to swipe open and it generates an announcement? Or at least a message in the Command frequency. It would also be hackable via crypto-sequencer. Would still be pretty easy for the antags to get to it (considering they have gotten their hands on a Command-level ID, which is the trickiest part and I think could add some spice to it) and still be guarded properly for such a critical item. Consider that the Captain's spare grants the carrier access to absolutely everything, including the failsafe system (I mean, yeah you don't have the code, but you can access it), vault or the AI. I really don't like the fact that the ID is not accesible to all other heads, since that doesn't make sense. Having to hack or ask the AI for permission into an area you simply don't have authorization to get into it's kinda iffy. So I'm against leaving it in the Captain's Quarters.
  8. Suggestion time. Is it possible to make damaged lungs start affecting oxygenation? To the point it gets difficult breathing with them and you require to be hooked to a ventillator? Can we have ventillators?! You're all doing God's work with this. I love it. Thanks!
  9. Closing and archiving as a new post following the format has been made and this essentially double-post.
  10. You were explicitly told that you could not create more accounts to play on the server, yet you admit to having created this account you attempted to join with after the ban was applied. How is it non-sense? Despite your objective with it, you joined with an account that belongs to you while you were banned on the other accounts. That's ban-evading. Simple as. You were also told to not join with other accounts and to stick with the Twotales account. You decided to ignore this. You are not getting unbanned this time, sorry. I will lock and archive this in 24h. Feel free to point out anything you feel it's needed during this time.
  11. Access could be restricted further to janitors by just adding one_access type of access to janitors to the maintenance door by the hallway next to the crusher, so they can't just roam around the rest of maintenance other than what's needed to cross to reach the crusher.
  12. Hello. I will be handling this application. For now, please answer @NewOriginalSchwann's questions before we move on. I have a few questions of my own that I'd like answered, but I'll wait to see if some of them are answered when you reply to the previous ones.
  13. You were spoken about multikeying on similar accounts and was told to stick to one. You were re-banned some days ago under the ckey kindnesschan, which coincidentally is linked to all of the following accounts: kudochan kudoschan twotales Coincidentally, as well, the first-time appearance of kindnesschan in our server was exactly the same day you got banned on your twotales account for 3 days, just on the past November 19th, days before you were permanently banned. Furthermore, after a short investigation on all of these accounts' IPs, they all point to the same user. Unless someone with more technical knowledge comes by to rebate this, you are not getting unbanned. We might probably consider applying a community-wide ban if you continue to ban-evade, essentially barring you from any future opportunities to appeal or to complain about the staff's member decision.
  14. You willingly went ahead and attempted to bypass the ban by multikeying. Why should we even consider this appeal?
  15. I have the privilege of being able to read and write on the lore_writers channel, but you're right when you say I barely use it for other motivation that is not related to what I'm suppossed to do there, which are clerical purposes as you say. If you've ever seen the hierarchic relations of the server, on how staff interrelations work, you'll see that the Administration branch is completely separate and unrelated to both lore and development, which both respond directly to the Head Developers, and have nothing to do with us. I do not mingle much with any of those, other than the occassional remark, or comment which is normally unrelated to lore itself; I like to keep in my lane as what my current position entails, even if I do have the privilege of being able to interact with you over that channel. I have zero authority to go and give my opinion about something in those channels, and the reason we have them is to be able to actually moderate, and perform our assigned tasks with ease. It would be no different if someone external from the staff team applied into the position, from my point of view. I do understand your concern, however, since as I've pointed out in the application, my relation to lore has been minimal for the time I've been in the server. Mofo, according to both the thread and our private conversations, is looking for someone able to manage the lore staff and issues, rather than someone who will take the lead on lore development. I know lore experience is valued, but the reason I applied is because I feel this position can be taken on without much prior experience to it, since out of the tasks outlined by Mofo, only a couple require 'lore experience', and one of them is processing whitelists whose lorewriters can't handle for whatever reason. I am in possession of four out of the six species whitelists, and keep up-to-date, as much as I can, to their lore developments. I'm pretty familiar with most of our lore, barring certain minor topics I've never showed interest in. I'm not sure what you meant by this, but I don't have a Diona whitelist, and I'm pretty interested in all species I have my whitelist for pretty much equally. While I mostly play Skrell, it's not a hard preference, and you can commonly find me playing my Vaurcae or my Cats indistinctly. I don't play IPC that often, because it really limits the RP in a way I'm not a fan of, but I do have IPC characters that I play from time to time. I do not intend to mess with any of the species maintainers' vision, since I'm a firm believer of lore development freedom, as long as Mofo, who's setting the main guidelines of development here, agrees with it, and as long as it makes sense/doesn't give a 180º turn on what's already developed, wasting everyone's effort in the process.
  16. Ckey/BYOND Username: Juani2400. Position Being Applied For: Interim LoreMaster Deputy. Past Experiences/Knowledge: I have never worked with or within the Lore Team before, and thus have zero experience or creativity in the aspect of writing lore, which is the reason why I have never applied for such positions before. However, I have been serving this community as a moderator and then admin for over 3 years now, with no interruptions, and through all of this time, I've been working in most if not all of the faces of this business. I was part of the trial moderation team, in charge of the whole process of trial moderator recruitment, for about a year if memory serves well, under the command from Catnip at first, and Flamingo for the most of it. I have relatively recently quit that team to focus entirely on Command applications, which is my main and only focus as it is. As you can probably guess, our main role as modmins is, in fact, resolution of conflicts that arise from player interactions. Most of them are handled in-game through ahelps, and some of them you can see posted on the forums. I've decided to apply since I think my experience and profile can meet the requirements that are being looked for in this position, namely being a peacekeeper, a resolver of issues, a recruiter and a handler of unhandled applications. The Loremaster has also asked for someone who is naturally calm, unbiased, level-headed and friendly, and I think most of my interactions with the community in this regard can be proven to be evidence of these traits. Naturally, as an administrator, there are times in which you need to be quite firm with how to speak to people on ahelps, complaints and similar, but that is not my natural state, and I think the modmin team can agree I'm as soft as a plushie on a personal, natural level. On the specific topic of handling applications that have not been taken care of by the species loredevs, I think I have a decent understanding of how most species work, having passed all the processes to be in the possession of species whitelists for Tajara, Skrell, IPC and Vaurca, while being an active player of all of them (IPC is probably the least one I play on a regular basis). Besides my experience in this community, I have also served in a few other different community and places on the internet in positions of responsiblity, most of them always having to do with people. I will not go over most of them since it is basically neglegible for the position I'm applying for, but I have served as Human Resources Director for an online community of about 800 active members, handling all of the affairs having to do with them. Examples of Past Work: I have no physical evidence of any past work because I have done none! Closest I have done towards writing something sensical and sensible for this server was when I started the draft for NBT suggestion, which involves a portion of lore (setting, structure of the base...) which you can read here (it's not complete, since I started working on it too late and was never posted, some people may have read it already since I've posted it before on Discord): Link to Google Drive Additional Comments: I definitely think there is people way more capable of occupying this position, with past experience as lore writers and similar profile to mine, however, I think it would be interesting to serve in a different team for once after a while, and get a more in-depth view of what happens behind the curtains of the lore team which, besides what I can see on their Discord channel, I'm sure I'm not that updated on. Approval from Alberyk was granted to go forward with this application, to make sure no unwilling association of the administration of the server happens with the lore administration. Anyway. That's my application. I think I covered most of what I wanted to cover on it. I'm fully open for questions in regards to the application itself or my duties as an admin of the server. A lot of you know me pretty well, some don't know me at all, so any kind of questions is welcomed.
  17. I like them all, but I'm personally in love with the futuristic Captains one. I'd need to see it IG to make sure, but it already looks pretty good. Suggestion: have the Captain's uniform include a suit item that fits the outfit perfectly and has all the formalities you would expect from a captain's uniform (the command colour marks, shoulder patches and stuff , and leave the actual uniform be slightly more informal (like it is in the futuristic version) below. Great job, anyway. Command was in dire need of this.
  18. I studied Marine Engineer for several years, and I'm now studying Business. Thanks to my years as a student of Marine Engineering, I got myself a place in a program where I work for a few months per year in a shipyard, within the management teams of the company. The shipyard doesn't hire the bulk of the employees directly, but instead they use contractors. To the point, they /do/ have as their employees, though, the engineers who supervise the construction and repairs, and that are responsible for any mishap that happens in the ships. They are the ones who issue the orders, and make the design of the construction and repairs, and the ones who stay in contact with the customer's representative on the technical side of it. The others are just technicians, and mind you, where I live, technician is a title given to everyone who completes an specific level of education which is for practical proffessional purposes (e.g. Electricians, Mechanics, Administrative staff, all kinds of stuff), and it's common to refer to them as what they are, technicians. I know it's a fault of the English language to have people who isn't an engineer commonly referred as engineers (train operators, even ship staff), but they aren't people who studied engineering and as such is incorrect to call them as such. Maintenance technician, station technician, or just remove the technician title and think of something else that may fit, but engineer is a term that is not correct and it's not what they should be referred as because that's not what the are, in my opinion. +1 to the suggestion.
  19. Feedback is positive, and I have personally seen you play. Please have into account the points made by the other players in order to improve. Trial passed.
  20. Please edit your post to meet the format available here:
  21. Hello. Staff complaints are not handled by the person being complained about, but they do have the right to explain themselves and discuss the point of the complaint on the thread, as they have done. As such, I will be in charge of handling this complaint. The way I see it, the warning as the selected punishment was fair and in accordance to the escalation principle we follow. You broke the same rule not that long ago by joining as an AI named "Stalin" and you were spoken to by an admin, about the very same rule, so you perfectly know what the rule is about. So if the point of the complaint is trying to get the warning removed, it's not going to happen. In regards to the other point raised in the complaint having to do with the language used on the contact, while I can understand it may have been confusing at the start, Prate continued to explain how and why you were breaking the rule in the following interactions. Nonetheless, a notification will be made to the admin in question to try to be more precise and to-the-point whenever talking to people about this kind of stuff. If no objections are made by either of the parties, the thread will be locked in 24 hours and considered concluded with no actions taken against the issued punishment.
  22. Barely any feedback has been gathered, and I personally have not found you around the game to see you play, so the trial will be extended for 3 more days counting from tomorrow, so until the 5/NOV, inclusive. Please be aware that the feedback doesn't necessarily have to be for your HoS character, so if you find the Head of Security's slot taken, you can use other characters and play other Command roles. If the application has not gathered enough feedback in both quantity and, specially, quality, the application will be denied by the deadline. Good luck!
  23. Application withdrawn at the request of the applicant. Locking and archiving.
