When are you on Aurora?: I normally only play on weekends, but I can be online starting at 9 AM (CST) on weekdays and then around 1 PM (CST) on weekends; all the way through to midnight. I may not play on weekdays, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for ahelps or suspicious things when possible, as I am allowed to use my laptop during my college courses, and it does not affect my performance in said course.


How long have you played SS13?: About two and a half years.

How long have you played on Aurora: Since July 30th or so.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I like to think that I'm knowledgeable on them.

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: I became a moderator for Exogenesis (another heavy RP server) back on June 25th. After three weeks, I was promoted to administrator (being the only (normally active) administrator in Exogenesis' staff). A couple weeks further, the server owner (Hoknar), was chatting with me over Skype, and he told me that I "practically run the server. If you think someone would make a good moderator, then a moderator they are!" He then put me in charge of handling whitelist applications, moderator applications, ban appeals, and I was practically a headministrator in all but name.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: I have not, and I'm making 100% sure that it stays that way. The only issues I have ever had with administration is me forgetting to unbucklecuff people after setting their timers, but even then I never stayed out of the brig when there was someone I brigged, so the issues would always be corrected immediately.


Why do you play SS13?: Honestly, I started out in GoonStation because I enjoyed all the randomness of the server, but then I grew weary of it, and was wondering if there was such a thing as RP servers on SS13. Then I found Exogenesis, and that's where I've been playing since before coming to Aurora.

Why do you play on Aurora?: Because I enjoy heavy RP, and I enjoy the community.

What do moderators do?: We handle most of the grief basically.

"... and get bossed around by administrators." - Covert0ditty

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: The same that it means in most RP servers I assume. You're someone that's there to help, answer questions, potentially give antags ideas on how to create RP (upon request), safeguard the players from bald thirty year old men, etc.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I wish to become a moderator in order to be able to give back to Aurora. Ever since Exogenesis died due to inactivity, I looked for an RP server to call home, and I found Aurora. Honestly, I just really enjoying being able to help people!

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I have infinite amounts of patience. In the rare occasions that I do get mad, then I take a couple of deep breaths, and ask for someone else to handle it before I either step away from the computer (PMing a troublesome player) or quietly fix something while listening to music in order to avoid doing anything drastic that I will regret. Aside from that, I'm also a very nice person (I believe words like "hate" and "dislike" are real burden and I don't even know what the word "stress" means) that deeply enjoys helping people.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: Very well. SueTheCake is a witness of how nice, patient, and polite I am back when we were on Exogenesis' staff. I'll always keep calm and colleted; even when they're insulting my mother or anything like that. When I do get mad, then I just step out of the room and clear my mind by drawing, writing or playing guitar. I used to have anger issues as a kid and teenager, but my psychologist helped show me how to get over it, and it has never failed me since.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

I am an English major and Puerto Rican (fluent in both languages, and dabbling a bit in French)! Who would have thought, right? Writing, making stories, developing characters, etc. has /always/ been a passion of mine ever since I was a wee lad. In fact, I run TTRPG (Tabletop Role Playing Game) campaigns every weekend night (although this will not stop me from paying attention and keeping an ear out for ahelps), and I even make my own additions to TTRPG systems. Recently, I've been working on additions to a TTRPG system called Dungeons the Dragoning 40k in order to center it more around character development! The best way I can express my thoughts, feelings, and ultimately, myself, is through writing as I occasionally stumble in speech and am easily flustered while talking about things. I could also help the lore team should they want my help or opinion for X or Y reason, and could even help other staff members refine custom event ideas that they might have.

Aside from that, despite me always being a nice person, I do not let people walk over me. I will stand and hold my ground, and even be stern if it is required for a situation. Everyday I always strive to be a better person, student, son, etc. in order to improve in the future, and I even take up half an hour prior to going to sleep in order to reflect on my actions that day so that I may look to tomorrow. If there's any questions, just ask, and I will gladly provide an answer. I do hope that I will be given the honor of serving as a moderator for this server!
