Snoopy11

[Accepted] Snoopy11 - Command Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Electric Kitty (Formerly Snoopy11)
Character names:Summer Snow, Azza Nazkiin,Layla Al'Khalida.  

Various others over the years which have faded.  You may Remember Legatus, Samara Kaytam, Cassia, Luna Moon. 

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Since around 2015, when we were on the Exodus!  Wow, what an old timer!
Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I'd like to bring my own flavour of roleplay to command, I tend to favour rewarding effort when it's shown.  As an example of a very contextual situation, if someone shows decent roleplay towards taking me a hostage, I'll comply.  'Losing' can be fun.
Why did you come to Aurora?: I have no idea.  But I've stayed because I tend to enjoy the community, and the flavour of Aurora.
Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes!
Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? I've had a few bonks on the head over the years, but nothing serious I don't believe.  A couple of steps over the line, rather than leaps, and soon corrected after!

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplaying putting yourself in the role of the situation, as the above, perhaps I'm now a hostage.  I fear for my life, there is a very angry man with a gun against my life.  Soon my spark might fade from the world, fade to black.  It's also about creating roleplay for others to join in on, which command has a fantastic opportunity to do as the heads who control the department.  Training.  Meetings.  Competitions.  They control the flow of the round. 

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Essentially similar to the above, they guide others into action, direct the course of the round.  They also create roleplay in doing so, a HoS shouldn't be on the front lines, he/she should have their pulse on the station and be directing his or her resources.  Same with the captain, and any other command staff. 

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Command staff are there to be role-models for others in how they act ingame.  To demonstrate the ability to roleplay to others, so that others might also strive to do the same.

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? It's one heck of a mess honestly, and has been since I've played!  We've not got the robo-lizards causing upset with their non-augmented counter parts.  (Sort of redacted ish) the synthetics have recently been getting hunted down, for rogue units, the untagged; people dislike a free synth!  Or some do anyway.  And then of course we have the Tajaran war picking up with the NKA giving other factions the boot. Since I’ve played here we’ve had Frost invade, the taj camps being dismantled, the Vaurca invade and kill a few of my character’s friends, or maim them.  Real hecked.

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? HoS for the most part, as I tend to favour security.  I see myself going captain, with a new character.  Perhaps CE as I tend to be semi-active in engineering.  And finally on the off-chance, HoP to get folk to move freight.


Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Azza Nazkiin, head of security.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Pretty decent!

Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Understandable!

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? I have since 2012!

Extra notes:

Vote Snoops, to be cool.

+1 just cause I wanna be cool. No but seriously, a huge +1 for this. Snoops is really good at security, and I haven't interacted with Azza that much, but I did have a round recently with her, and I must say that she took control of the situation as interim to the best of her ability, all things considering under the circumstances, it was a a terrible thing to try and get control of, but she managed to do it and coordinate security. Even giving up her gear so we could fight off the hostiles when we lost gear.

I'd argue that snoops has the ability to become one of the best command players out there, mostly because of their RP capabilties. They're also robust as all hell so don't try to fight them.

I was under the impression you already had one. I think that's enough to warrant support.

You gave Watson to Rosetango?

I did a stupid.  My character is Samara KAYTAM.  Taj engineer, very mouth back in the day of the Exodus.  

But not yet, I say every year I'll apply, and just... don't!  So I did it.  I done did it.

The truth has been spoken. No honestly. Apps are hard, glad you wrote one.

+1

Not only because I still wait for that one HoS to turn around the entire department, but because I think every good HoS does another step toward a better ISD. I trust that you will be one of those steps. I've seen you RP when all the guns where drawn, I've seen you keep a cool head when the salt was around and I've seen you be uplifting ICly when the rounds went south. Overall stuff I want to see from the HoS players.

Only question that wanders around in my mind is if you will enjoy it. You are going to have to be a bit more strict, you'll be a rolemodel and a parent for the kids with guns department... I'll watch your trial with great interested and in hopes you not only make it, but actually enjoy it.

Snoopy is the only sec main I like. Your RP is incredible, your ability to enable creativity and antag play is top notch, and you've been here for a long time. Love the days of Sunny and Azza. 

There's nothing more to be said. Snoopy as command would be something I'd love to see, especially since command lately has been.... Well, actually, let me ask you. What's your experience with the current state of command, and how would you like to improve or contribute to it? I know that's a broad question.

Regardless, a very firm +1

I like the app.
I don't have a bone to pick with the person or characters.

I don't see a reason to say no:

It's a +1 from Naelynn :)

I think so honestly!  Azza is no longer my 'main' character, so I have enough want to play her, with enough break between being command and being a regular peon.  As for being strict, I believe that I'm able to follow along the expectations of the whitelist, while keeping Azza, or another character's personality at the right level.  

Not every character can be command because of that reasoning, I'd never throw my meek, quiet Layla into the CE slot.  :)

I'll be honest I think I'm in bed/asleep when most of the command shenanigans happen, being in the BST timezone.  So I've unfortunately had mostly pleasant experiences, which is a bad thing perhaps as I've nothing in mind as to what I can fix or perhaps add my perspective too just yet!

 

Hope this answers some questions.  383813329241767936.png?v=1

I want Azza to notice me as a HoS, I'd say. From what I've seen, I like your RP! But, I must ask you some questions regarding your app and some things you would do as command in-game.

1)It seems that you've described what is happening in Tau Ceti and beyond, but did not show how it affects the characters that you'll want in command. You should probably get that fixed.

2)You say you don't mind being a hostage for the antag, and in general you want to RP with the antags, not shut them down. Of course, that's what we all try to--but when put in the command position, your job, IC-ly, is to shut them down, in essentiality. Sometimes, I find, after getting their command whitelist, people forget that antags are there to drive a story, and try to shut them down ASAP.
Let's, for one, imagine a situation, say, negotiation--the antag is threatening to bomb the station if they don't get the money they're asking for, while holding a switch in their hands. Some other command members are negotiating with them and bringing the money, but you, HoS, are in your office. What do you do?

For the first question; this is hard to describe over multiple characters.  Azza struggles everyday with the history weighing heavily on her shoulders, having seen Frost's men trample through the station and harm her friends, dismember, and kill.  Then we moved from the Exodus, where the Vaurca invaders came and again, close friends are hurt.  This has been what has triggered her personality change, from green horn to jaded veteran.  It's easy to see and hear the warmth she's always had, but one wouldn't miss the wariness she carries about herself.  

Snow is new, but I've tied with the Frost invasion and a dark past. A marine forced to do things she never wanted to do at the gun point of her superiors, and now after the events of the 33rd the sorrowful marine returns under white-lies with a burning need to give everything away, monetarily and bodily to help others where she could not.  

So a bit broad!

 

The second question is very contextual and a little hard to answer, because you always need to take the entire situation into mind.  Personally if others which we'll say is the captain/HoP is negotiating a trade to prevent this, I will ensure security keep people away, and safe, and be ready at the drop of a pin to rush in and stop the threat to the station.  As much as a shutdown as you mention that is, it's also security's role to stop the bad guys in a sense and it is hard to find alternatives when someone says they have a bomb.  If we give them money, or items, they will still supposedly have bombs after.  They'll always have the upper hand and can continue to until the threat is confirmed false or the person is satisfactorily dealt with.  The key thing to take away from this is that it's best not to rush in, gather information, and make a plan which doesn't involve getting the station blown up.

Thank you for your answers. It was an intentionally broad question, yes, but I find that you provided a good answer that I find suitable for someone with a command app. Good luck and I hope you get your trial soon so I can see you in action.

Big +1 from me. I don't think I've had a bad experience with Snoopy.

Summer and Azza, where do I fuckin' begin.

They're almost childish, very green-sounding in appearances, overly joyful and absolutely do not seem like the type of people to be appropriate at first glance.

So +1.

Why? Because appearances can be deceiving. Snoopy's routinely showed a lot of care into how events affect their characters, extensively, and their characters are not 'lol randum' nor are they almost frighteningly uninteresting and problematic. Sometimes, I want someone who is not an absolute fucking melodramatic dickhead in their appearance. We hire too many of those. Azza and Summer, they feel believable, if happy. And if being happy is unbelievable, just remove me already I'm ready to die

A lot of care into how their characters act and play, goes into making someone that is one of the best characters seen on-station. I've seen Azza go through a lot. Time to reflect on that development.

Hello there!

I'll be handling this application. I expect to go through all of the app's content either tonight or by tomorrow's morning. You can probably expect a few questions from me to extend on the application's answers by then. The community is also encouraged to continue giving their feedback (please provide actual solid arguments as to why you support the applicant) as they've been doing.

I'll be back!

I have only had positive experiences with this person.

However they seem to actually think they are a catgirl ooc so maybe when we whitelist them send them some support.

Yeah, Snoop will need some fire support. If the bad /tg/ crowd ever gets here we'll need some Catgirl Protection Teams to avoid undue death of catgirls.

+1, for reasons stated above, Snoop has a pretty positive MO as far as things go for how they contribute as a player in the community. They are responsible ICly and do not tend to be combative innately. Samara Kaytam and Legatus are good names that I remember. Heck yeah dude. Super responsible choice.

Yes, I'm sorry. I don't have much time and the little time I have, I keep forgetting about this. But worry not, the thought of this being open occassionally comes back in my dreams, I just haven't remembered about it at reasonable times.

 

I'll have this handled by later today.

Snoopy gets the big +1 from me purely on the merits of a recent round I had with Summer Snow. Snow took the reigns from me as HoS after due to the circumstances of the malfunctioning A.I rendered me unable to perform my duties effectively, in that no one could safely do surgery to fix my ribs, so I Had to wheel around on a wheelchair.

 

Summer lead ISD into the core and negotiated the lives of the crew on behalf of the station. The only thing that ruined this were the desire for vengeance of the Chief engineer. I was unable to directly witness the command of Summer Snow, but she took charge of the department while I was clinging to life. Suffice it to say I'm impressed.

I was with her during this round and, as shown by the other rounds, Summer is able to be both somewhat playful character when nothing happens, bringing some great atmosphere to the security comms, and, when the need arises, a serious character who is able to take responsibility for her department and the people around her. But I will have to hold on to my +1 until Summer will get ma' cowboy hat back.

Feedback has been reviewed, your history checked and I don't see any reasons to oppose a trial. You will be on trial until the 18/SEP/2019.

The community is greatly encouraged to continue to supply feedback onto this thread when they see the player playing in a Command role.

Good luck!
