My english still is not that good and I am glad about criticism))

The latest interaction I had with you left an odd taste in my mouth. We had an issue that needed solving, and instead of squaring the issue away for yourself, for good, you opted to lean on crutches. Basically, instead of figuring out how to respond to situations well as an antag, you opted to start actively consulting people, or cease, if none are available.

This paints the image of a person who either cannot improve and develop themselves, or lacks independent thought within some areas.

As a moderator, you will be presented with situations that are new and foreign to you. Sometimes without backup. How do you think you would cope with that?

Response to Tenenza: I am not that often AFK. When I am AFK then I am afk LONG.

Response to lord Skull: Modding and killing people are two different things. If I want to kill people in an interesting and RP rich way it may lacka bit from my side. However moderating a server and handling situations is something different and you do not have to think of funny/interesting ways to handle it. You got to handle it with a low-but-not-totally-zero-tolerance-policy and honesty. I was taught that if I have proplems with things I should ask people who have coped with those things to improve myself. If there is a new situation, I will ask or act the way I see it currently fit. I hope this answer answers your question

I can't support this application, to be honest.

In my experience, the applicant has had numerous incidents of going SSD for long periods of time, which isn't fair to people who want to actually play those roles (especially quartermaster, which the applicant plays often). It's also not something that staff should be doing, or providing as an example to our player base. Also, I need to point out that you have amassed an almanac of notes regarding your actions in game. Personally, I don't feel as though you have the maturity level yet to handle a staff position. Perhaps next time around? I'm sure progress is being made to rectify this behavior, but I don't feel as though enough of that progress has been made just yet. Of course, this is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of other staff members.

Without making an extensive list of examples, I sadly have to agree that Mirk overall hasn't displayed the level of maturity found in the rest of our (current) mod team.

It's really a matter of, personal development, I think. Give it some time. Don't try to change your behavior, as much as be attentive to it, understand how people react and why they react negatively when they do.

People should also tell you when there's an issue, obviously. Not everyone is good at that.
