How long have you been playing on Aurora?:

A few months now, on-and-off of course due to other activities. I know I've gained some form of reputation, though it hasn't really shown much else other than my character concepts.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:

I've had a lot of character ideas over the time I've been on that can only be done in higher positions. I suppose to express my creative side a little better and hopefully have more roles I can fill on the station. Command is important, and I see a lot of the time that Command seems absent. Even if it's just something as small as Liason, it's important to have someone to report to.

Why did you come to Aurora?:

Jumping from server-to-server, no other server can really take a title as "RP-Behemoth", but then I found this station. I stayed on this one just because of the potential of finding other people that appreciate the RP scene as much as I do. It's hard to find it on other servers.

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?:

I have. Liason has a lot in detail to each sub-type you can play as, though I haven't quite decided which one I'm going to strike up officially. Though being a Liason, makes me feel I can connect with the whole crew a little more; which is why I plan on playing it. I suppose the faction I plan on joining would have to depend on the character I make upon approval. Assuming I get considered, of course. :P

Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they?

Ohhh yeah I have. However only one that stands out, and is even remotely bad, was just a bad hostage situation I did while I was a security officer. I've since learned how to be less gung-ho and aren't as catastrophic to those around me. Save that for when I'm antagonist and are suppose to make things wild for the crew. Long-story-short, I learned my lesson. I believe I was only warned, and it was my first and only offense, as far as I can recall.

 

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:

Roleplay is a story that a collective of minds come together to set up and enact. Everyone has their role to play, and we all expect each other to play that role correctly, and/or constructively. The goal is to have a good time, I believe; we're all here to have fun, and we should actively try to make it fun for everyone involved.

 

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

The out-of-character purpose of a head-of-staff is to be able to guide the players, teach them the tasks needed with each department. Medical teaches doctors how to medicate, operate, etc. Engineering teaches how to fix up the engines, fix lights, do mechanical work and the like. HoP usually instructs and ensures those in Service do their jobs correctly, and generally keeps their eye on the entire crew to make sure productivity isn't interrupted. In-game is the exact same; except in-character. They actively go about their business, but from their character's perspective. Also mostly, if need-be, to keep things running themselves.

 

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

I think our job as whitelists would be to be the responsible sibling. While still acting in-character while in-game, OOC you should be responsible and considerate in the face of regular players. Put simply, be a good role-model. Roleplay -- Rolemodel. Be a good example is really as simple as this can be put.

 

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career?

This is the question I sort of dull down on. I've never really been able to locate exactly where to look for this kind of information. If it's the broadcasts from the PDA from Tau Ceti Daily, then the most I've seen is a lot to do with elections and the like. I suppose I've been sort-of in character with that, it hasn't affected my character(s) too personally, at least yet.

However, as of now, a news article broadcasted about a celebration for the apprehension of a terrible criminal, and that food stock prices have skyrocketed. Most of my characters appreciate their food, so they haven't been too impressed by the cost-increase of their regular supplies, so this must be affecting their moods during work-shifts.

 

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?

Corporate Liason. It's mostly the only one I've looked at really, since I love involving myself with the service wing. I feel being a Liason would involve me with them more commonly than being an HoP, and having a lot more constructive freedom with how I go about roleplaying it out.

 

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:

I may be using Ginnunga, if not, Diama. However, Diama is mute, so I don't believe her involvement with Liason would be warranted, or even advised. So, most likely Ginnunga or Winter Ase. If not, then I've still plenty of character concepts in mind that would fit the position.

 

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:

I think I definitely meet the status quo. If there is one, lol! I genuinely have a hard time rating myself on anything; but I've been RPing for a long time, and I put a lot of effort to include everyone and display my character to the best of my ability. So I think I'm a pretty damn good RPer! :3

 

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

I'd be irritated if I got away with misbehavior all the time. I have my sense of fair play, and if I don't deserve it, I don't want it!

 

Have you familiarized yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?

Yes I have.

 

Extra notes:

I'm doing thing genuinely because I'm curious and want to try it out. It looks fun, being so high on the ladder. Hope to hear feedback soon, thanks for reading my application! ^ . ^

My interactions with your characters have been generally enjoyable and I do not remember seeing any OOC rage from you, so you seem quite level-headed and friendly OOC. Winter Ase already has a motherly aura and looks after people, so I would be interested to see how you play your other characters in a "big sibling" role as command.  +1

I'm going to give you a trial, be sure to advertise your application in ooc chat when playing command, so that people can grant you feedback.

Trial starting on the 4th and ending on 10th.

Generally how it goes.

You can advertise this thread once every round.

It's been extremely fun, actually. :3 Sorry for the late response. But I was doing really well I think. I had an incident related to a ninja round that ended in me wailing on the ninja at the end, and it of course nukes again. But apparently They really enjoyed how I roleplayed the entire time leading up to that point. They say I was really accurate with my dominian roleplay, aside from the screaming about heretics. Most people I RP'd with were really satisfied. I wish I had more of a chance to play over the week, but I came down with something halfway through and found it hard to find energy to get online.

 

I hope I get more chances to play as a Liason; honestly it's been my favorite character to play since I begun. ^ . ^  Ty for the trial, however it may have turned out.

While the lack of feedback is a bit problematic, I'll consider the lack of negative ones a positive aspect. You've also got a good amount of rounds in.

 

Application accepted.
