When are you on Aurora?: Lately, during the afternoons. During the weekend, usually I'm on most of the day, or at least on the TS where people can reach me easily.


How long have you played SS13?: Just a bit over a year or so now.

How long have you played on Aurora: I want to say a little over half of this span? ~8 months, maybe more.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: Most of it, really. There might be little tips and tricks, but I know enough to assist others.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: No.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: I don't think I've been banned from this server. If I have been, please correct me because I know when I first started SS13 I was one of...well, those guys. Y'know, the kind that goes around doing minor grief and all just trying to "have fun."


Why do you play SS13?: Hm. That's changed a few times over the past year. At first, it was just for fun. Something to do when I wasn't playing ARMA with my unit/group/clan/whatever. Then, I started realizing that there was more potential beyond *clickclickboom* and that it could be used as a medium for storytelling, but not the one that involves just typing out a story. This was a medium that was real in a way, because it involved other people making up the other half of the story.

Why do you play on Aurora?: Let's take a trip back to a desk far, far, away. I was previously on BestRP because well..I was friends with one of the admins on there, and that was about it. After I left that server, I spent time on the old Colonial Marines server for a while, and then I realized I wanted more. I was always relatively unknown in these communities because nobody really cared for your characters, or their quirks and all. Nobody was really interested in the roleplay.

What do moderators do?:

Moderators are there to

A.) Respond to ahelps by other players regarding events on the station

B.) Enforce server rules and prevent things like murderboning, ganking, Bad Arpee, Constant and overbearing chucklefuckery, etc.

C.) Provide advice for new players to the game and advise new players to the server if they have a question.

And most importantly, preventing the round from being ended prematurely by that guy from a griefstation who felt like getting banned on that specific day.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?:

To be a moderator for the Aurora server is to well, be a staff member of a server that believes deeply in the concept of Heavy-RP and wishes to build upon an already upstanding community of like-minded individuals who want to participate in something that they all love to do: Roleplay. Being a moderator for our server is being someone who can be trusted to actually do his job and help facilitate fun rounds for not only themselves or the people that they're buddy-buddy with, but for everyone.

Why do you want to be a moderator?:

I would like to be a moderator for the following reasons:

A) I've been here for a while. I know most of everyone who comes onto the server, and what to expect from them.

B) I already try to do as much for the server as I can manage, but I'd like to try and do even more.

C) I'm not easy on people who attempt to ruin the round for others. I'm not going to sit around and toss semantics around or debate the rules. I'm completely willing to give chances and warnings and all, but I'm not going to tolerate griefers, smartaleks, or anything of the sort.

D) I honestly love this server, and the community, and just what it represents. I only want the best for it.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?:

I'm devoted to this community. I've invested a lot of time into this, and I only want the best for this community and the players that make up it. I'm not going to toot my own horn, giving the usual spiel of how honest and amazingly great I am, because that's just not the way I am. I'm familiar with the duties of a moderator, I'm in constant communication with them, I know the server rules inside and out, and I'm willing to work with people if they'll work with me.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?:

Stress - I deal with stress all the time, day in and day out. I have a lot of experience managing it, and I know how to deal with it.

Anger - If you've ever taken the time to talk to me, be it on TS or over Skype or anything, you'd find that I'm probably one of the hardest people to get riled up and angry.

Insults - Frankly, I've been called every name in the book in real life. I'm not going to get all outraged just because some unknown (or even people I know) call me something over the internet. That's just juvenile, and I would never let myself stray down that path.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

I love this community, and you'll always find me on the forums, or on TS, or ingame, trying to talk to people and put together ideas or something, suggesting things to people and the like. I'm always game to help anybody out because well, this 'place' is like a second family for me. The reason I've stayed at Aurora is because it makes me feel like I'm not the only odd person out there, and I'm not the only one who expects character development and storytelling from a game that was originally designed to be murderbone central ....INNNN SPAAAAAACE. Honestly, if this application was denied, I wouldn't mind. I wouldn't suddenly decide to up and leave because that's just really childish. I love you guize.

Lastly, Vote Jesus 2014.
