Recommended Posts

Basic Information

Byond Account: CakeIsOssim

Character Name(s): Blacked-out names are irrelevant, most of them unplayed, and one is an event character.




Discord username + tag: Cake#4864

Age: 22

Timezone: UTC/GMT - 5

When are you on Aurora?: Anytime between 0700 and 2100 on weekdays, any time on weekends. I'm usually online at least once a day, somewhere in those times.


How long have you played SS13?: Since October 2014.

How long have you played on Aurora: Since November 2014, give or take a month.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I'm definitely not a code whizz or anything, I believe I know a decent amount as a player, and enough to be able to instruct others on most mechanics.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Yes, I was a moderator here on Aurora for a little over a year, from August 2016 to December 2017.

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, 100%.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: No bans.


Why do you play SS13?: I am a huge dork and even huger sci-fi fan. I've never found a game before with such a setting and game mechanics to back it up. Taking the role of one character on a space station with many other player characters is thrilling, and no matter how many times I get bored of one particular round (even get bored of the game itself), I always find myself coming back for more not too much later.

Why do you play on Aurora?: I wasn't here when it started, probably a year or two after, but I've seen the setting, the lore, the playerbase, the game itself, all grow into truly incredible things, and I've always been so happy to have had some part in it, even if that part was just witnessing it. The combination of the universe and the gameplay is intriguing and if correctly utilized, leads to absolutely addictive roleplay.

What do moderators do?: Moderators guide the community in both subtle and proactive ways. They set examples for players, both old and new, and resolve any issues that may arise in accordance to what is expected of the community in regards to activity and behavior. They represent the very idea of the server and work to maintain that idea as well as identity. And unfortunately, when necessary, may have to punish certain players or individuals for obstructing or damaging the quality of the game server, the forums, discord, or any combination of the three, and ultimately the community overall.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Being a moderator means being fair and honest, never deliberately misinforming or lying to any parties, as well as knowing right from wrong in a general sense. It also means being flexible and ready to take action. A good moderator remembers that no matter where they are or what they are doing - if they are visible on the server, they are setting an example. They should do everything they can to ensure that it is a good example.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: Two reasons, one personal and one 'business.' The personal reason is that I really miss it. I very much enjoyed my time as a moderator previously, and though I was inactive a bit towards the end, I never lost that want I mentioned earlier to keep coming back. The 'business' reason is that, to my knowledge, there is a low number of moderators, and most of the moderators seem to be new staff. I maybe know a few things I could teach the new people.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I've always been a thinker, trying to look into as many options as possible before going with the one I think is best. I believe I'm respectful of others, and I think I'm more than able to be professional and effective.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: Very well, I believe. I get cut up on daily by my battalion mates, so insults are nothing to me.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

I should note that I am a volunteer firefighter in my home town, which means that when I'm not at work (from 2200 to 0700), I am on-call. I could have to leave the round immediately at pretty much any point in time. Does not happen often, but some days are worse than others. I also apologize if this is not very long, I don't really like to pad stuff out. If I didn't answer one of the questions fully, please let me know.


also alb so help me if you post the scalie household ban screenshot

As a player who was around during Cake's time I can safely say that I have the utmost faith in their ability to be staff on this server. They are capable and work well without holding bias. Another of the now growing list of persons I'd love to see return to the staff team. +1

I didn't know you from your moderator days, only from synthdev days. I liked your temperament and judgement calls, so I feel you'd be good at the job, even if you didn't have mod experience.

My only concern now is your activity level. I don't know how much you've been playing lately, but I feel like I barely knew you or saw you, ever, as a lore dev. Do you think you'll be decently active on the server as a moderator?
