Skype: [information scrubbed]

Age: 17

Timezone: EST

When are you on Aurora?: Honestly, I have no schedule whatsoever. 4 PM EST onwards I'm usually on, and I tend to stay up obscenely late into the wee hours of the morning, especially on weekends.


How long have you played SS13?: A few months by now.

How long have you played on Aurora: Same amount of months.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I'd say a fair amount. There's probably bits here and there I haven't picked up yet, but I know enough to be able to help people out.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: None official, but I did boot my own server once and play around on it to get used to basic Baystation mechanics. I know a fair amount about what commands do what, for what counts.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Nope, my record's clean.


Why do you play SS13?

I came around because I heard from several friends about the hilarity they'd experienced. Getting spaced by aliens while trying to shove into a shuttle sounded fun at the time. Thanks to EvilBrage, I learned that it was indeed fun, in moderation. Alien Larvae 330 will see all of the cosmos thanks to you.

Why do you play on Aurora?

It's the only server I play regularly on, actually. Aurora has a great community with even better staff-- not to mention the quality of RP is the best I've seen on an SS13 server before. I definitely don't plan on leaving any time soon.

What do moderators do?

From what I've seen and understand, the mods are there to solve OOC and in-game issues, and generally enforce the rules/resolve conflicts to the best of their ability. They represent their server, can act as a mentor or aid for new players that need help learning the ropes, and help decide a course of action for a problematic player or character. They help keep a server going at full capacity.

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

In a sense, a moderator for a specific server (In this case Aurora) is a representative for the server to new players. If they act immaturely and overall show poor behavior, people probably won't get a very good impression of Aurora. They're here to help make Aurora such a great server to be on.

Why do you want to be a moderator?

What can I say, I just like helping out. I figured I might as well give this application a shot, because I think I could contribute well to what a moderator's supposed to do. A happy playerbase is a happy server, so I'd be glad to do whatever I can to help ensure this.

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

I'm usually fairly patient, I can deal with people well, and hell, I'm experienced. To be fair, I try not to have a stick up my rear about a staff position, but I'm not overly lax, either-- Or, at least, I don't think I am. I'm generally hard to really tick off, as well, which helps when dealing with conflicts, and I try to see both sides of a conflict and hear out each side when resolving arguments. Helps to keep butthurt down when everyone's spoken their piece calmly and rationally.

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

I'd like to think fairly well. I've been staff on multiple other game servers in the past, just not SS13, and I've seen a lot of.. How do you say..Colorful characters. Heh. But really, bring it, insults and rage don't bug me all that much. Stress? As my friend Jack said once, "Ain't nothing but a thang." Anger? My own, bah, it's a real feat to actually get me angry, and I'm not one to take it out on people even if I've hit that point. Other people's rage directed at me? I usually shrug it off and try to diffuse the situation. As for insults? I don't usually insult other people, and I couldn't care less about ones directed towards me in turn.


Anything Else You Want to Add:


... Alright, being a bit more serious here. I understand the decision of staff to say yay or nay to my application, and either way? I'm cool with it. I want what's best for the server just as much as you guys do, and I can easily say this is the best server I've played on out of all the others out on that there list.I respect the final decision either way, but I'd be more than glad to try and prove my capability as a mod, given the chance.

See you in Bluespace,


( Obligatory: )


I'm really not sure what you were expecting.
