Recommended Posts

Server Moderator Application

Basic Information

Byond Account: Capesh

Character Name(s): O.R.B., David Hawthorne, Charles Thunel, Carl Harrison.

AI Name(s): Arlo

Discord username + tag: Errant#3216 

Age: 20

Timezone: CET (Central European Time [UTC+1]).

When are you on Aurora?: Usually Friday/Saturday/Sunday around 17:00 EST, but when work allows deadhours on weekdays.

How long have you played SS13?: A bit more than three years - Paradise, Bay, Aurora.

How long have you played on Aurora: Think I just passed the one-year mark.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: In part thanks to focusing on synthetical characters, I believe I have good knowledge on most departments. Can confirm nothing on atmos/xenobiology/and virology, however.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Not a single iota.

Have you read through the criteria thread; https://forums.aurorastation.org/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=4198 - and believe that you mark off all the criteria?: Believe I do.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Nope.

Why do you play SS13?: I play it for the fun, but enjoy it for the people, and the situations organically evolving as a result - that's what SS13 is all about, after all; remote player interaction that feels close, despite the distance.

Why do you play on Aurora?: The high bar set on roleplay is certainly a driving factor, but I enjoy both the non-complex map design (looking at you, Bay) and the friendly faces, both in and out of the round. Keeps drawing me back.
What do moderators do?: Moderate and oversee a round's overall adherence to the server rules, in addition to answer any questions concerning mechanics, or things you feel unsure about. Be the tech support on speed-dial.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: To be someone one can turn to when in doubt; friendly, understanding, and (often) with the answer to your question. Something to be proud of.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I've always enjoyed helping people (something I hope can be glimpsed in my characters), and want to aid outside IC interactions.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I'm tolerant, easy-going, and enjoy making people satisfied.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: My actual work entails meeting about 100 different people daily - vocal conversation and stress-handling is something I believe I am rather good at.

Anything Else You Want to Add:
Thank you for reading this application. Enjoy the end of March!

I don't know if it's appropriate for a lowly gamer such as myself to comment, but I'd just like to emphasize that Capesh has been here for a very long time, and has demonstrated a great deal of knowledge, restraint and management potential. They've never really struck me as someone given over to letting their emotions get the better of them, and they're clearly a very responsible and collected person! Upvoted for sure, Capesh would be a great addition to the Moderator team.

EDIT: To my awareness, Capesh is also broadly known by many, and well-respected(!)
