When are you on Aurora?: I play on Aurora most often after work/school, and on my days off and holidays. Typically during 'low-pop' on a normal day, otherwise when most are on.



How long have you played SS13?: Probably about four years now.

How long have you played on Aurora?: Three years actively, though I think it says I first connected in 2015?

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I know a great deal of various stuff. I pretty much know how to do most mechanical things besides atmospherics and plasma bombs. I also struggle a bit with chemistry.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: I do not.

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?: I have read through it, and I believe I meet the criteria.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?:  I've been banned three times in total. The first time was for being aggressive in LOOC/OOC and was for 1440 minutes. The second time was ramboing a malf-AI that resulted in a IPC-CE being killed/EMPed to death. Not sure how long that ban was for. Last time was in 2017, and was for racist ingame remakrs that got a little too out of hand. But it was two years ago and was only a 2880 minute ban.



Why do you play SS13?: I play SS13 because I was looking for a game that was heavy on the roleplay, but wasn't any sort of weird voice chat program. I played a lot of Clockwork HL2RP and was looking for something similar in terms of roleplay, but wasn't some spin off weird server, thus I settled into SS13 and its HRP community.

Why do you play on Aurora?: I play on the Aurora because it's one of the few HRP servers that is around and somewhat decent. I've dabbled with other servers but often found them lacking, ultimately returning to Aurora. It's one of those servers that mix a good blend of roleplay with mechanics and action, without having one factor overwhelm the others.

What do moderators do?: Moderators are there to help enforce server rules, while also there to help players with any complaints, questions or concerns on various fields such as mechanics, rule clarification and any other issues.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: It means that you have a set of responsibilities that you have to abide by. You are there to help make the experience for the player's of the server a better one, through a mixture of answering questions and resolving disputes and tickets.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I've been playing on the Aurora for over three years now, and I've enjoyed pretty much my entire stay here. The community, staff and mechanics have been an absolute delight. So, I've wanted to sort of...give back, so to say. I basically want to become a moderator so I can help keep that experience going, and make sure that others are also enjoying their experience with the server like I have.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: Well, I use to moderate non-SS13 related things. I was a moderator for the People of Gaming's 1942RP, along with a HL2RP server known as Shockcore Gaming, I also work in sales/retail so I guess that. Basically I enjoy working with people and I'd think that would help bring over to the server.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I'll be honest, it's not my strong suit and I didn't handle them well in the past but I've uh, gotten better at it, since then. I believe that since then I've managed to handle such things in a better manner, and typically cool off instead of reacting to it.


Anything Else You Want to Add:

I understand that I have quite the history, with notes, warnings and bans. But I've been trying to rectify these issues and I've had a rather long sort of empty-period where nothing has happened, I understand if this may negatively affect my chances, and I simply wish to prove myself with a trial period to see if I can handle this, and prove it to others that I can handle a role with more responsibility.
