When are you on Aurora?: Generally speaking from 4-10 weekdays. Variably on weekends


How long have you played SS13?: Around 3 years.

How long have you played on Aurora: As of this posting, on off for around a month.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: Very Familiar

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Moderator on Best RP (Unbound, Aphelion). Head-admin on the former N.S.S Metis. Host of the Hollowstone project, which ran Aurora's codebase.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Once from /tg/. Played with a friend, we depressurized a room and killed someone we didn't know was in a locker


Why do you play SS13?: Said friend introduced me to the game, ever since I find that some of the people I meet on the server have grown into friends. Generally speaking to meet people.

Why do you play on Aurora?: As a former host on a server that ran the code base it seemed a logical progression.

What do moderators do?: Bridge the gap between full on game control and simply addressing problems or questions. More like keeping the peace, than full on moderating.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Bringing an enjoyable experience to the players; capturing the magic of first experiencing this game and keeping that experience from being bogged down or diluted.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I have something to give. It would be a shame to not attempt to put it to use. Furthermore, I think it's important that the only contact with the staff a player has is complaints or warnings or questions. I aim to modify that.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I have been told that I made a good host. Whether or not that is true is subjective. My mantra was that if the player isn't having fun and it's within the rules, I'm doing something wrong.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I'd like to say that I have no issues, but I occasionally do find myself in that situation to retort. Usually I would try and get someone else to deal with the issue. If that's not possible, ask the person to wait a bit and explain why. Most people can understand.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

Honestly this is a bit of a gamble for me. I would entirely understand if there is a denial based solely on time dedication. I just figured I have the skills and may as well try and meet halfway to apply them.
