Server Moderator Application

 

Basic Information


Byond Account: Ricky madenson


Character Name(s): Curel Wald, Shane Halevy (and a few others I rarely use now)


AI Name(s): None.


Preferred means of contact: Skype, What'sApp (And I'm always open for new ones such as Discord.)


Age: 17


Timezone: UTC + 1:00 (Amsterdam)


When are you on Aurora?: During weeks around 4-5 PM. Weekends/Holidays: 1-3 PM



Experience


How long have you played SS13?: 5-6 years IIRC. Started out as a goon to find myself the good RP servers.


How long have you played on Aurora: 1 year I believe. I did stop by during the times the old map still existed./b]


How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: Little of engineering and science, more about Medbay and intents etc.


Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: Yes, I've done some (trial)moderating for CM. My promotion to Moderator was denied however after one screw up right on the day I was expectting it. I didn't take the demotion wrong at all, and instead took it as a way to learn what the role as Mod truely meant and the boundaries that come with it. The punishment was however considered unjust by other staff IIRC because it was mainly based on a previous demotion on a Headmin. After that, it went a bit low and I the moderating job


Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Never.


Personality


Why do you play SS13?: To have fun and Roleplay.


Why do you play on Aurora?: Roleplay has been my drive to start with SS13 in the first place. I was mostly talked into it by some people I met on Byond and it eventually got stuck on me.


What do moderators do?: Providing OOCly and ICly security and overwatch. Mainly to deal with situations looked at from an OOC perspective. (Random griefer, rules violation, OOC grudges being transfered ICly etc.). To act as some kind of mentor should there be a player with questions regarding mechanics, gameplay and RP.


What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: The part I mentioned above and to make Aurora great again. And of course, to act as a friendly face to represent the server itself.


Why do you want to be a moderator?: I've seen the adds and announcements passing by about "looking for more mods" and I figured that you could use some additional forces in your team. Since I have some experience I thought i would be a fitting candidate.


What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?: I can work with a team. I can be communicative, know how to handle stressful situations appropriatly. I like to help out people as much as I can too.


How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: Just fine actually. After spending some time with a psychologist irl (due to mild depression) I've figured ways to easily cope with stress and such. I know this is an important part as a mod to not allow myself to get wrapped up by emotions.


Anything Else You Want to Add:

It seems my biggest drawback is being rarely active on the forums. I will try to change this in the future.

Any further opinions from anyone who's know and interacted with Ricky?

 

WELL DON'T MIND IF I DO.


I really have nothing to say from a negative-centric standpoint, I've seen nothing I'd really identify as a "flaw" from the applicant. They're level-headed, cool, collected, noncontroversial, the cold to my hot, the Mulder to my Scully, the Watson to my Holmes, the-- you know what, we'll just skip the analogies as they're not helpful.


Ricky's the sort of ideal player with attributes I wish others in the community had. They're honestly a good example to look up to, they don't cause shit, they're a good roleplayer in general and there's really not else that can be said past that. Good person.


This is based on my own interactions with them, I've never seen them crack under any circumstances and it'd be nice to see someone with their attitude and dedication on the staff.

I can'y say I can give him recommendation. Earlier today there was a round where three people started talking about kidnapping and raping someone as an antag. Since none of the staff noticed, I ahelped and got Ricky, and gave him the names. He never got back to me about that matter, and several minutes later, the main person, SonicGotNuked, brought it again, and for the third time someone in OOC had to tell him to stop, and he listened for a while, until he brought it up yet again, and then they started complaining that if people didn't like it they should just turn off OOC. It got to the point that I had to go onto the staff Discord to get an admin to deal with it, Serveris.

Ah, yes sorry about that. I did actually mention it over msay to the others when Severis decided to mute OOC. I forgot to actually reply and mention it was resolved.

So you didn't do anything for the about half hour between the ahelp and me needing to get Serv to resolve it?

 

An half hour? Then it might have been a bigger fault that I'm looking at. I received another ahelp about the same problem and did reply to that one. Serveris was already online and I was able to contact them through Msay. If it turns out I had forgotten about yours then I sincerely apologize. Either I was distracted or looking into it. Eitherway, I am certain I did inform over msay that there were people talking about vulgar subjects in OOC. I do once again apologize for not intervening further.
