How long have you played SS13?: 9-10 years

How long have you played on Aurora: Since late 2014/early 2015

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I've played most jobs over the years, so I would say I'm generally well versed in at least the basics for most departments

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Yes, I was a admin/head moderator on CM sometime around 2015-16

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

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: No


Why do you play SS13?: I play SS13 because it's a unique game, with unique mechanics, and a fun setting. It has the ability to have all the players contribute to a really interesting and fun story, and some of my favorite gaming moments have been from rounds of SS13 I've played.

Why do you play on Aurora?: I play on Aurora because I've always enjoyed the server and the community, as well as because it is the best (if not only) HRP server available for SS13. The background and constant development makes it very interesting and keeps it fresh as well.

What do moderators do?: Moderators ensure that rules are being followed and the game isn't disrupted on both an IC and OOC level (ie. someone flooding the halls with phoron randomly or spamming slurs in OOC). They also help players when they have questions about mechanics, lore, etc.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: I would say that it means that you do the above, but also are generally a respected member of of the community, and actively involved in the community.  You should be willing to help new players to the game and/or HRP servers, and generally should be even tempered.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I want to be able to help out with the server and continue to make it a great place to play and community to be a part of.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I think that I'm generally a level-headed and laid back person, and can look at issues that may come up from an objective standpoint. I think I have been around the community long enough to know what everyone's expectations are for the community/server and would be able to uphold those. I also feel like I am a good communicator. I've been a sports official for over half of my life, and I've really learned how to communicate with people, make judgements, and handle emotions very well.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I feel like I handle these things well. As I said above, I've been a sports official since I was 12, so I feel I have learned to control my emotions well, and have taken my share of verbal abuse as well. In general I try to ignore it or laugh at it to myself. With the game, if I ever find myself getting emotional or angry with a situation, I step back and remind myself that this is a game, take a breath, and move on. Regarding stress, I also feel that I handle it very well (I main HoS for God's sake), and if I ever do start feeling quite stressed, I remove myself from the situation when possible.
