Strong recommendation to require the applicant to wait for at least a month to submit another application for Head whitelisting, preferably with evidence that they have been playing regularly during this time period.

This application is, almost, word-for-word identical to the last one that was submitted by and denied for this person last time.

Sry, but i dont realy under stand the paragraph thing. Could you please explain it to me? And how am i suppose to prove that i have been playing on the server?

More than a couple of sentences.

There's also the fact that you said you'd redo it and put a bit more effort into it, but just copypasted the whole thing.

Firstly, if you can't write clearly and with at least an approximation of grammar in a whitelist application, odds are you aren't likely to do much better when the power's out and the nuke ops are gesturing obscenely at you through the bridge window.

Secondly, the character. Thirty is quite young, especially for a head position. This applies doubly as he had a very prestigious position somewhere else; anyone capable of tying his own shoes can become warden of East Chucklefuckistan Penitentiary & Auto Repair, but a big, famous place is going to have standards.

Aurora's security team aren't quite police. They aren't quite mall-cops either; they're sort of in the middle.

Experience as an MP isn't necessarily going to carry over.

Experience as a warden could help, but only as far as being Aurora's warden, and as it says above, any clown with a pair of hands can sit behind a desk and supervise baldies.

A Head of Security doesn't just need to know how to beat people up; he needs to know when to not beat people up, and how to talk to them so that they don't need to be beaten up.

Something like a sherrif of an isolated settlement.

Being good at your job isn't enough to be a Head; you're also supposed to lead. Someone who lacks empathy and feels contempt for anyone who isn't in authority over him isn't likely to inspire loyalty and cooperation, no matter how how many grey tides he's held at bay.

The odds are that someone who wants and seeks power is also likely to want to exercise it, which, again, isn't a recipe for popularity.
