Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Blingx3

Character names: Tony Smith, Joy Smith, BIB (AI/pAI), Jim James, Sharp Max, Chris Outfield

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Septemper, 2014

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I'd like to be involved more in decision making as well as experience the different setting of playing a head of staff as it is an entirely different experince from playing a lower-grade crew member, as crew look at you for leadership and guidence.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Aurora has been what you say a once in week thing for me when I started, but as I played more I found out the depth of this community, the great feeling to be involved in it. Playing in Aurora as a heavy RP server is nothing less than a gem among the other servers because of the dedication and effort put in this server. And the admins, oh my god.. I just love them.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes,thoroughly.

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:

Roleplaying is assuming the role, skills, knowledge, lifestyle, and personality and putting yourself in the shoes of your character. making the choices your character would make. Roleplaying should be about interaction mainly, not with other players only but with the atmosphere around you, and how you can use it to influence the ongoing roleplay and add to the situation.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The purpose of heads of staff include guiding other players and being a good example of good roleplay and decisions. Departments supervision is an important part of a head of staff job, as they must see that it runs smooth and productive, and keep the staff of the assigned department in line.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

Being the highest commanding personnal in a round, they are looked up to by the crew. It is very important for a head of staff to have a good knowledge in the field they're working in, as for me I've spent most of my time in science and have a good enough knowledge in that field, not having the enough knowledge as a head of staff can leave a bad impression. helping other players who are just diving into a new field is a responsibility for the head of staff aswell, to provide instruction and guidence.

Please pick one of your characters for this section, and provide well articulated responses to the following questions.

+1, when I was new Tony Smith really helped me out, and I think Bling is a good role-player. Also, I really liked the back story, the character seems like a normal guy, 0 dead parents during childhood was refreshing.

There was also time when Tony Smith had to act as an acting RD, and I believe he did a good job of holding the department together during a changing situation.

I've seen Bling mature and develop his roleplay to amazing levels since he first started playing in 2014. I'm really glad to still see him around, and it's definitely one of these "fuck yeah" moments when you look back at someone who used to be a noob and realize how awesome they turned out to be.

Echoing what I believe to be the general sentiment here, but I also really think Bling would be a great fit for head roles.

So I just want to say, Bling has been interim research director multiple times and has done a great job at it so far by keeping the whole department in check, while still being a good boss. He really should get this to just cut out the HoP part of it and let him be director.

I have been Captain multiple times when Bling was promoted to Interim RD, and from my experience he knows how science works and how to keep them in check. He also managed to keep even Genetics from doing anything without his permission. I would love to see him gain the head roles and I think he would be completely capable with one.
