When are you on Aurora?: Usually weekends and after 4 PM on weekdays


How long have you played SS13?: For around five years

How long have you played on Aurora: For around five months

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I've played on baystation builds for the past 3 years. I have a pretty good understanding of most of the systems

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Yes, I was promoted to moderator and later game administrator on Exogenesis.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: No, N/A


Why do you play SS13?: I like to role-play and I think SS13 has some of the most mechanic driven gameplay that I've seen in a long time. This allows extensive RP as almost everything can be interacted with. I also love how easily SS13 can be updated and changed.

Why do you play on Aurora?: It's a good RP server with a good friendly community.

What do moderators do?: Uphold a certain value of RP on the server by providing an environment in which RP can grow. They are the vanguards that protect the community from hostile, vile natures that disrupts the friendly environment and denatures the RP that the server has worked so hard to achieve. Their job is not to ban, but to re-educate if possible. It is not a power, but a responsibility to ensure that the community prospers and flourishes while upholding its status as a high rp server.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: To promote the role-playing experience and guide players to becoming better role-players to ensure that the community grows and prospers.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: To help create an environment that encourages role-playing and to help the people that are misguided on what it means to role-play on the server.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I consider myself very tolerable to other people's beliefs yet can hold firm to rules and regulations. I try to be a liberal person and see the good in every person. I like to help people become better at what they want to accomplish.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I work in customer service so I deal with a lot of stress, anger, and insults on a daily basis. I like to think I handle it rather well as I was entrusted to a higher position in customer service when I become 18. I have also dealt with insults for a good half of my life and I try to push myself by entering stressful environments and achieving success. It can be hard to anger me especially on an impersonal level.

Anything Else You Want to Add: (Do not put words here)

I have decided to add words here.

You are the head of another roleplay server, technically a competative one. Why did you feel it necessary to leave this fact unmentioned, or unnoted? Understand that information like that should be considered important enough to end up on this application, as it may lead to conficting interests and unnecessary bias.

With the above note in mind, could you please further explain as to why exactly it is that you are applying.

I thought I should mention it, but I didn't want to self-promote in any way shape or form. I have no intentions on competing with Aurora, all jokes aside. Aurora holds a special place in my heart and I will always think that it is a wonderful RP community. The only reason I want to create my own server is to take it in a direction I can't influence on Aurora as I have no say in the matter. Me and my friends have bountiful ideas that we want to implement that would be too hard to push or suggest on Aurora as we'd be asking for a complete overhaul. The reason why I'd like to moderate on Aurora is because I still consider it a home, albeit a home away from home. Like I said, the only people I want to promote to is people who have previously played on our own server, and anyone who would happen to give our station a chance. Currently, we are no-where near a real build that I'd like to fully advertise. Just getting the people together.

Enough about the server that I can one day hope to shape.

I only wish to become a moderator on this server because I do want to make sure we can keep the balds away, per say. I do love Aurora, I love the community even though I wouldn't consider myself the most active participant in the discussions here on this forum. In a way, I just want to give back to a server that has given so much to me, including the code. I understand if you don't want to give me a chance, but I hope that the above paragraph satiated any of the fears that people might have had about my ability and bias.

I'm not seeing it, nor is the rest of the staff. If memory serves, and consider this to be potentially out of date, the last logins from your main and secondary accounts were at least a week, if not 2-3 ago. You are not active enough to have the familiarity with the server and community required to be an effective member of its moderation staff, nor does it look like you're willing to, or putting in, for that matter, the effort to change that.
