Recommended Posts

Basic Information

Byond Account: DeadLantern

Character Name(s): Yamina S'raka, Adeleh El-Mizdawi, Ess Eazkeie, Za'Akaix'Xca' C'thur, Rhaghraz Vizz'aa, Marx

 Discord username + tag: DeadLantern#5679

Timezone: CST

When are you on Aurora?: I will play around 1 or 2 rounds a day from 3 pm - 11 pm CST


How long have you played SS13?: Since March 2016

How long have you played on Aurora: Late 2017

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I am a layman with engineering, and know the basics firmly and can experiment somewhat. I understand science, but I have never put the theoretical skills into practical skills. CM has taught me Medical quite well and I know the general mechanics well enough.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Very short stints, really. I trial'd for Bay and was accepted, however I declined to go to full moderation status as I didn't feel as if it was the right fit for me. I can not recall the specifics on why I declined. I was a moderator for Star Trek 13 (while it was active, only a few weeks). I do know my way around the commands.

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?: Yes

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: I have never been banned

Edit: I did not consider job bans. I was jobbanned from security two times, both for ssding without cryoing. Since then, I've made sure to ahelp before ssding/cryo. If my computer hard crashes or something (like last jobban) I'll ping the admins. 


Why do you play SS13?: I play different servers for my different fixes. Aurora station supplies my RP fix, mostly. This game can vary in so many ways, give you so many things. So many settings have been conjured up from this base game, and it is endearing because of that. I've always been fond of games like Dwarf Fortress and this, where you can just relax and do what gives you fun.

Why do you play on Aurora?: Again, for the RP. There's no other mainstream server that tops Aurora in terms of RP quality and mechanics and lore. Probably one of the more consistent servers on lore (not hard to beat) and it is far more interesting than the alternatives. The playerbase is quite active and want a good RP experience.

What do moderators do?: Make sure RP is sustained through the maintainment of the rules. Simple as this, there is nothing more, really. Another job is to help new players find their way through the ship, mechanics, and lore.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Do the things listed above at an adequate level, really.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: This community has a lot of rivals, a lot of drama. So much of it can be ended by achieving our true goal--A good RP experience. A moderator can build the bridges that can help people focus on what makes this game great and not dilly-dally on the silly things. I think I can help people enjoy this game. I want people to have fun.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I am a good mediator and I like to end conflicts. I like this game. A lot. I play it a lot. And I think that I have the motivation to make it a better place and a better community.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: You can often see me in debates on OOC or in the discord. Sometimes these get heated, but I make it a point to remain calm. If you see me arguing, I do as much as I can to have a good debate to get both our points across. I may shitpost during these arguments, but that's not me disregarding them. I typically *do* get into debates if there is a conflict, but I make sure they are peaceful and don't cause trouble. And I'll end them if I see it is not healthy for both of us or we're just venting. For Stress and Anger, I simply don't play or talk when stressed or angered. I typically don't get stressed easily or even angered. I'll sit out for a few moments then come back. Insults, I don't care about that. I approach patience with everything, or at least I try. 

Anything Else You Want to Add: 

Please DM me for info about anything.

Yamina refuses to be my friend and Adeleh is a cool cop. The duality of man. Deadlantern rounds out as a decent person for as long as I've known them, so as far as more pigs for the slaughter goes I think this one has a fighting chance.

I don't know what I just saw but I like it. Excellent. I approve. Verified. I did not read a single word. I applaud what just happened. You guys also managed to annoy an admin. Absolutely hilarious.

Anyway, more seriously, I think deadlantern is worth a trial. He's a level-headed guy and remains pretty cool under fire.

I've have many positive interactions with your characters, and in general, you approach roleplaying with a different mindset than mine. I haven't really seen you particularly have issues in round our outside of it, but I will save my questions till after your interview.

Out of curiosity @DeadLantern why did you ask people to RP on your moderator application? (Surely there are better places for it?)

I thought they would RP criticism or something. I was a bit naïve, I guess.

Edit: I didn't ping them and say "yo RP on my app." I posted my app and Ferguson started talking about an open RP thing and I pinged him with that message.
