Soultheif96's Command Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Soultheif96

Character names: I have blotted out two characters as I rather the community not know them as they are my secret or irrelevant characters. 


How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Ten months now.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: To gain it back since the temporary ban.

Why did you come to Aurora?: I will echo my reason again. "I came to Aurora and SS13 as a whole because I was introduced to it by UnknownMurder, along with that, I came here because I enjoy the community and the roleplay atmosphere."

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes and I am familiar with the qualifications of each head role apart from Head of Security, which I do not intend to play.

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

Due to my rash decision-making against the advice of other players, I "expunged" my charge on part that the situation was unethical and idiotic, which I, Za'Akaix'Maive C'thur, should accept the charge due to canonical impact. Admins deemed it appropriate to temp-ban me and remove the whitelist, which I felt was uncalled for due to being unrelated but I accept the punishment. I wish to earn back my whitelist in light of my acceptance and willingness to change the behavior on these matters. 

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 like a novel. The protagonist has a backstory that shows itself later on in the story though interactions with the environment/characters. Some develop it beforehand, some others do not, all it takes is time and interactions. Then there is the antagonists that affects your experience, both in positive and negative ways. One such example would be a Vaurca experiencing oppression within Security because the HoS doesn't like their species due to racial bias/experience, so they would look for ways to gain their trust or actively go toe-to-toe with them to prove a point. In short, roleplay exists to share a story with others and make the experience enjoyable in one way or another.

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

My previous thoughts have not changed for OOC purpose. "The OOC purpose of a head of staff is to help other players preform their duties in-game, make sure they are following regulations and doing their jobs properly. Through this, you aim to make sure your department is functioning properly and co-exist with other departments. If one person messes up, it is your responsibility to correct their mistake and act accordingly to their wrongdoings. If the mistake is severe, it comes down to you and command to decide what punishment would be for the person who committed the mistake. Outside that, it is notable to make sure you keep a professional atmosphere while being enjoyable. It is a game after all." Though to expand on that, as Captain, there are times when you have to make a hard decision and know how it can be impactful to the round. Meanwhile, being in a role of CMO, you are there to provide oversight and experience to help others in the medical department, this can be done for other departments like Science. 

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

My thoughts here have also not changed even so. "The OOC responsibilities of a whitelisted player to other players is to be a role model for them, help them learn as they go on in there play. You are the mentor, there to help teach them how to do their job and well. I aim to be sincere but stern as a head of staff as no body likes a jerk for a head of staff. It is your responsibility to act as a the boss of your workplace to make sure that they are not screwing around, with exception of interacting with others in public spaces." To add on with that, I understand there are times when you can't micromanage every aspect such as Science, so you simply have to let it be until it either becomes a problem or it requires your oversight to ensure there are no mistakes to be made. 

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

Quintin Copperfield is a Sol citizen who happens to be neutral if not accepting of synthetics. Since the SLF actions on NSS Aurora and other affiliated areas, he began to formulate the question of "Do the synthetics deserve a voice and be heard?" His answer was, "Yes, they are no different to us, if not more rational and logical than we are. I may say that they need to be watched with caution as they may develop negative sentiments towards us Humans and other species. We should be more receptive to them and allow them to a voice." He actively allows synthetics to be heard while still considering other peers opinions, as if they were equals, this caused some questions to be raised for Quintin as a Captain by others who share negative feelings about synthetics. On other notes, he is disturbed by the rise of the MLO, and will only observe what they will do and see how it goes. It reminds him of the Worker's Party back home, leaving a bad taste in his mouth as Quintin is a pro-corporate man.  

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? All but Head of Security.

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:
Sterben - CMO, Quintin Copperfield - Captain/HoP, ORION - CE, Flamel - RD. Ta'Akaix'Jyek Zo'ra - Consular Officer. Frederick - NanoTrasen Liaison.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 7/10, there is always room for improvement.

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

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? I am familiar with the command roles and the wiki due to constant reference to the page and experience.

Extra notes: I understand that there are some feelings towards me that are negative and I wish to answer them if it means to help create an understanding between me and the community. If there were some concerns stemming from my time as Command, I wish that you express them here and I shall see it to be taken into consideration and perhaps change how I would play. I want to help create an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone as command and don't want to leave a bad impact that would sour our relationship. This also includes my OOC actions, if you wish to bring it up for question, I will see to it answered when possible.

Expanded on a few points for clarification.

I can personally vouch that Soul is usually an exemplary command player. I've had a ton of fun both being under them and working with them, and want to see them re-established as a command player. I don't quite understand removing the whitelist for what happened, but either way it was a temporary lapse in judgement as far as I can tell.

Sup babes.
I know soulthief to be fun to RP with and a good teacher, especially as Flamel.
But I am not very sure if someone who is reapplying(and i'm pretty sure you've reapplied too soon unless time flies super fucking fast) with 7 warnings and quite a few bad calls.

That being said, though, I am a believer in second chances, but I hope you do understand that this is not a reply in your favour nor against it. I would not mind seeing your trial.

I, too, would like to know why an IC-charge would lead to a temp ban and whitelist removal for something like “not reaching the patient fast enough.”

I would also like additional information because there have been plenty of times an EMT or Paramedic failed to save a patient and they simply retconned it or selectively chose to ignore it as “not canon.” 

I’m not exactly sure why someone would be banned for deleting a record that they disagreed with, unless it was the explicit result of CCCIA investigation (An IR.)

Other than that, Soul has consistently listened and made improvements to their play-style from the (sorry) power-gaming choral warrior, to a respectable member of Command that delegates tasks accordingly. 

Pending further information, this seems really unnecessary.

Sorry, but your application is not being accepted. Your temporary ban, that wss the reason why I removed your whitelist, just ended. You are free to re-apply in a couple of weeks. If you do not agree on why you got banned or anything, I recommend making a staff complaint.
