When are you on Aurora?:

Experience

How long have you played SS13?: I have been playing SS13 ever since 29th of May, this also being the same day I had joined the Aurora server. 

How long have you played on Aurora: As answered on the last question, I have been playing on the Aurora server since 29th of May 2019

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: During my time on the server I have learned many things about the baystation server. Either by learning them myself through trial and error, research through the wikipedia guides, or through the help from community members as well. 

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: I never had the privilege of moderating for any other SS13 server, Aurora being the main server I play for most of the time. 

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 I have. 

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: I had never been banned on any SS13 server, Aurora included. 

Personality

Why do you play SS13?: Space Station 13 is a game I found out not too long ago and seeked solely for roleplay. The atmosphere and the general setting of Space Station 13, with the fact that Aurora is a HRP server has got me hooked ever since I had joined

I always enjoy roleplaying and being part of communities that share the same interests with me. Space Station 13 and the Aurora station server delivers an authentic roleplay experience for me, mixed with a lot of enjoyment as well through the unique game mechanics I had not found anywhere else. Especially since all of the games I had been roleplaying on were 3D games and not 2D ones. 

On top of that, the activity of the server and the fact that there is much more to learn and there's always something new to almost everyday is a hook that's gotten deep into me. And I enjoy every minute of it. 

Why do you play on Aurora?: The reason I joined on the Aurora since the very first day is my pleasure to roleplay within video games that offer a great and unique setting, Aurora being a very developed server that delivers in many ways. 

Since I had joined, the server and the community itself were very welcoming and provided a pleasant place for me to expand my roleplay and also learn many more things that helped me evolve. Thus arriving at the time of writing this application

Starting with my Command Whitelist, followed by my recent IPC whitelist, I had been supported and helped by many community members to evolve and expand my possibility of roleplaying different species and improving my roleplay itself. 

All of the above are the reasons I am attached so powerfully to the server and I wish to help with it's expansion and with everything else the server could possibly ask from me, no matter how small! 

What do moderators do?: Being a moderator is no simple task. A moderator must have great knowledge of how a server works but what does it mean to be a moderator for a large community as well. 

As a moderator, I believe you should expect things to never be as smooth as you think, but at the same time you must realise that it's your job to smooth things, no matter how rough around the edges they appear to be. You don't need experience at first, as every moderator starts somewhere, but you must be aware of how a community works and what you should expect from it. 

Moderating the server actively or not is something you must do with pleasure and knowing that you hold a great responsability for whatever unfortunate events might ocurr. A moderator is not just a person that resolves disputes between players or punishes the rulebreakers, but they are also meant to help and guide new players or those who ask for more information, how some mechanics work or generally point them into the right direction

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Aurora is the kind of server that runs smoothly due to it's great community. Being a moderator for it means you are a trusted member of the community and you are expected to get along with the other members as well. 

Aurora thrives due to it's strong foundation, and part of that foundation is the staff team and those who actively seek out to help and assist those who are in need of help. 

The moderators are no exception, they are those who chose their position to help the server that either helped them or simply because they feel a great pleasure in doing so for the community, and it is no lie that being an active helper of this community has no drawbacks, because those who help each other are never at loss. 

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I pondered this question myself for some time. I asked a few community members if I should make this application and they supported me in this. I felt like this could be the chance to do something in return for the server. 

The first time I had joined I was barely taking in the server's size and the many mechanics I had to learn. But with swift and fast guidance, offered to me by one moderator, I had come a long way. Still, there is a lot more for me to learn and I hope it will never end. Every time I had learned something new, I had made friends. Either through random situations when playing the rounds on the server or through feedback on my application, or discord. 

With time on my hands and my great appreciation towards the server, I wish to dedicate time to it and help it even further, not just to return the help it had given me, but when the time comes, help others join this community and open their eyes towards the great time they could have here, playing the game and simply being part of it. 

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: My most evident qualities would be the eagerness to help and seek out new ways to help the community. From providing assistance to those who need it, to making others enjoy their time playing the game through roleplay or simple discussions. 

More than that, I believe that my dedication and the fact I listen before making a move would help me moderate the server and succesfully defuse any situation or provide just the measures that are required to push a situation out of disaster. Along with all of the above, I am more than capable to multitask whenever needed. 

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I don't see myself as an angry person. I am used to stress as at times, real life can be stressful. Education, work and the tasks I do and had done in my life, including the fact I had grown up learning how to get used to stressful situations made me negate it's effects. I believe I am ready for most things that I could encounter. 

Just like stress, anger is something I do not express. In a game, even as a moderator or as a simple player, I have no reason to be angry. I am here for a good time and when somebody is not having it, I try to give it to them.

Insults, adressed to me or to others, no matter how harsh they can be, are not something I give too much mind to. I understand how people can get angry sometimes but I never try to fill my water tanks with fuel. I am at worst, dissapointed when I notice someone using insults when something does not go their way. Even then, I try remaining the same person I used to be before and be neutral.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

Should there be need of anything else, I am always available on discord. I am looking forward for the community's feedback and what they think of me. 

Hopefully this will make a good impression. It is nothing more than what I am! Hope I am going to be helpful to everyone here!

Answering the "When are you on the aurora?" question as I missed that during my application:

I am available most times during the day. I can play up to three or more rounds based on how busy am I IRL. 

I am active even during the GMT+2 mornings (dead hours) and the late times.

Supporting this application. Lolziam is a cool guy, he kills aliens and doesn't afraid of anything. He's legitimately an interesting, courteous and cool person to talk to. I've never seen him escalate anything to an argument and he seems to have pretty nuanced opinions on various subjects. The app's great too and I don't need a line-by-line analysis to think it's sufficient. +1
