Mod Application - Lmwevil

Recommended Posts

[b][u]Basic Information[/u][/b]
[b]Byond Account:Lmwevil[/b]
[b]Character Name(s):Jade Heart (RD), Aayun Kaiser (CE), Freedom(short name) (XO), Ra'Akaix'Las C'thur (Aide to Ta Nangeren), Uptari Iirun'Kiiq (Xenobio), Ayna Rashed (Miner), XI-1025555 (AKA Fives, Mechanist) to name a few.[/b]
[b]AI Name(s): N/A[/b]
[b]Discord username + tag: SquidQueen[/b]
[b]When are you on Aurora?:At least once a week, sometimes several[/b]

[b]How long have you played SS13?: since 2015, touching countless codebases from /tg/ to goon to cm to VtM servers, tested fallout ones, Eris and Dead Space 13. [/b]
[b]How long have you played on Aurora: no idea, ages? since the aurora, maybe 5-6 years?[/b]
[b]How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: pretty much everything, including stuff that is not on the wiki because i read the code. Only stuff I have to wiki check for is food/drink stuff since I don't interact much with those systems[/b]
[b]Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: i was a tg admin for several years before burning out from an extreme divide between those who wanted to keep the 'chan' culture alive, and the modern /tg/ists who didn't want to be dicks. TL;DR team toxicity.
[/b] [b]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[/b]
[b]Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Nope, I never make the same mistake twice if I can help it.[/b]

[b]Why do you play SS13?: To make interesting stories, enjoy the mechanics and the people and in general just have a relaxed time. There is quite literally nothing out there quite like this as a role playing medium, and it's extremely fun. Different servers give me different vibes, though not all hold my attention.
[/b] [b]Why do you play on Aurora?: Bay died and when it did I tried Aurora and got hooked, best HRP server out there, I even was part of lore staff for a time because I liked it so much. Though IRL things lead to me having to abdicate the position for someone more active. The setting is incredibly interesting, the community is good and the mechanics are well refined and always getting better.[/b]
[b]What do moderators do?: Moderate the content of the server. In seriousness, simply put they answer tickets, give game-play advice, make sure people follow the rules. It's pretty simple stuff. Hard for me to really write more here I'm afraid.[/b]

[b]What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Same as it would have on /tg/, preserve the enjoyment of the round by dealing with rule breaks, grief, etc. If it's a what does it mean to me? I suppose it's like a second chance for me, to test a different team culture and so on. Moderating is fun to an extent, it's nice to help others have a good time, it's why I do engineering so much. Again like the What do Moderators Do question it's kinda hard to expand on this because of how fundamentally simple it is.[/b]
[b]Why do you want to be a moderator?: Kinda covered this in the above, to summarize though to cover an odd time-slot so Mel doesn't always have to, and lessen workload from others? [/b]
[b]What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I'm not a dick, level headed and very hard to annoy. Credit of being Australian or a cripple, maybe both. I have former experience with /tg/ code administration tools, vv, procedure and all that so it's not like I have to learn much technically. I like to help people and I enjoy everyone having a good time. Most importantly I'm used to not being emotionally invested in the staffing work that I do, thanks to years of experience from /tg/.[/b]

[b]How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I go on a rampage, bombing the Horizon with maxcaps to release my rage. By touching grass, doing something other than 2dspessmen so I'm not so invested in it that I'm seething over nothing. I'd like to say I have a pretty healthy relationship with ss13 these days and nothing really phases me. I suppose to put it in a really plain way, I'm chill. Not much really phases me from a day to day experience, it's why most people even who are quite abrasive get along swell with me. [/b]
[b]Anything Else You Want to Add:[/b]
I recognize that this application is somewhat short of words compared to others, but I really struggle to put an essay to each of these points given how concise the answers really are. I hope that my long term experience, community membership and behaviour speaks for itself I suppose. Very much a long term, known quantity from the days of the Aurora. I was inspired to make this application by several people saying it over a prolonged period, and after someone reached out and finally gave me the shove to try making an app. If it fails that's fine too, I'll keep on keeping on as a player and teaching others engineering/other departments. 

EDIT: the formatting is broken, no idea how to quickly fix that

+1, anytime I had weird or vague questions about the machinist's workshop starting out - I could always ask lmwevil to help. They're exceptionally friendly ooc, and never come off as a know-it-all or someone who is too stubborn to change their views on a thing.

Squid has been around for such a long time, and in that time, she has been friendly to everyone that interacts with her. Helpful, understanding, and easy to talk to as well! I think she'd make a great moderator, and I'm surprised she hasn't applied sooner!😀
