When are you on Aurora?: Late PST, early/mid EU/AUS timezones due to work.

Experience I've been an Administrator for 2 previous RP Communities (B:RP early/mid 2014, Forsaken Travels (late 2014/early 2015).

How long have you played SS13?: I've been playing SS13 since November/December of 2013.

How long have you played on Aurora: I've been playing on Aurora since 2015.

How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: Being a regular player, I've had the awesome ability to work my way through a majority of the Bay-Station game mechanics. So I'm familiar with the basic mechanics, a majority of the jobs, as well as all the traitor roles and objectives. There's always room to learn though, and I find out about this every day (like Atmospherics. Never touched it until the other day. Didn't kill a single person).

Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Aforementioned, I was with B:RP and Forsaken Travels. I was a regular as well as Lead Moderator for both during my times prior to Administration.

Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Initially before returning to B:RP after it's re-opening (prior to the name change to Forsaken Travels by Jamie and the new management), I was Perma-Banned when I found out that Purlek the then owner was using server donations to fund his gaming addictions outside of the community. I took the Perma-Ban willingly after I confronted him privately about the issue, knowing that what he was doing contradicted his position as Owner, and violated the trust of the players donating towards the community.


Why do you play SS13?: I play Space Station 13 mainly for the multiplayer sci-fi aspect. It's a good way to lose yourself for several hours at a time and not remember what you were doing prior to playing.

Why do you play on Aurora?: In all accounts, Aurora is my third official RP Server that I've settled on in the past few years. What I look for in communities is a High Level RP aspect, stability and performance. I've stuck around with Aurora because it's proven to beat the test of time as other RP servers have come and gone, and has still stood up to the standards to which I judge any RP community of which I potentially I want to be apart of.

What do moderators do?: Moderators are the front-line face of any Staff Team. They deal with basic level issues when it comes to rule infractions as well as player-player conflicts. They are also the first contact anyone usually has with Community Staff, so in a sense they're Community Relations as they're actively trying to make the base player experience better for everyone.

What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: Moderators on Aurora are (like previously mentioned) the front line face of the Staff Team. To do this, you need to have a clear unbias conscious when conducting duties when ever they're on, and at times be the unfriendly guy in terms of enforcing the rules on people you know, and how to enforce them properly.

Why do you want to be a moderator?: I want to be a Moderator because personally, I see the Staff performing their duties on a day-by-day basis with a high respect towards the Community of which they server. They're not paid to do this, they volunteered. In many aspects it's inspirational to watch them. I want to be a Moderator because I want to contribute to the Community in a way that I know really well, and that's enforcing the rules in an unbias and mature fashion whilst showing my dry since of humor which may or may not make people laugh.

What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: For starters, I have the Moderator-type mentality almost every day due to my real like work in Store Management. It means that I know how to judge people without bias, keep a calm demeanor, and enforce regulation and statutes correctly and efficiently. I also have a fun side to this business side, which can potentially be seen in events that I perform or the Roleplay of which I'm apart of.

How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: Personally, I think I handle stress, anger, and insults pretty well. Most of it derives from my calm and mellow mentality and the approach I take during situations that deescalate them.

Anything Else You Want to Add:

Personally, I like how the community is going so far. I believe that I can be an awesome asset to the Team, and that all of you for reading this application. I look forward to potentially working with a lot of you in the future. If not, I promise /not/ to blow up Atmosia when I play an Atmospheric Tech for the second time ever.
