Akram HoS app (Kiwidaninja)

Recommended Posts

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

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: I believe roleplay is when a player takes control of a character, and acts as the character, giving them history, depth, a personality, relationships, things which make the character seem 'real'. Roleplay should be (As in, supposed to be) about experiencing situations through the eyes of a fictional character in situations that would not be possible in reality.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is to keep tabs on the staff under your command to try and prevent chucklefuckery

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: The OOC responsibilitys of whitelisted players, among other things, is to give an example to new players on how to properly play, and maintain good behaviour to uphold the responsibility.

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

Character name:Khalifa Akram

Character age:34

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Khalifa Akram was born on Biesel to a M'sai mother (Of who happens to be the mother of Mansoor Hosni) and M'sai father. For the majority of his early life (Birth to late teens) he lived an average life, he received an average education, no large injurys, until he was twenty three. He had become lost away in a large city on Biesel. During his time there, he had witnessed the severe injury of a man who was being mugged in an alley. After about an hour, he had managed to work his way back home.

Witnessing the mugging spurred him to enroll in a the Nanotrasen Security Academy, and he graduated with a high proficency in firearms and an average (Near below average) score in hand-to-hand, eventually having him assigned as an officer on a small Nanotrasen ship for about a month. He was assigned to the N.S.S Aurora as a Warden (Sometimes officer) after demonstrating he was capable of preforming as an officer, and did so rather well.

What do you like about this character?: He is pretty level headed and reasonable.

What do you dislike about this character?: If he does lose his cool, he tends to start yelling, and getting rather frustrated.

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff? (Please note that Head characters must be over 30, unless given special clearance): I do think Akram is fit to be a Head of Staff.

Why?: He has shown he is capable of keeping officers in check (Trying, atleast. Warden doesnt have too much authority.), not abuse power, and coordinate security.

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I would rate my roleplay a 7 to 8/10, however it worsens when I am tired.

Extra notes: There arent too many HoS characters played often, so Im trying to contribute.

I've seen Khalifa around as Warden. He's pretty interesting, but I don't really. . . See much that would give him a reasonable exception for the "Tajarans can't be Heads" rule. He's not IC'ly notable or super exemplary in coordinating security or getting his name out, he's just sorta a pretty decent warden. Barring some great political maneuvering on his part or notable actions in-round that make people go "wow, he'd be a good HoS" I don't think he'd be given a promotion and clearance to run security for a highly valuable research station over humans with the same or better koala-fications.

I do support your Head application, but not for this character, so I'm not sure what sort of vote I would have for it. Abstain?

I've had many shifts with Akram, and he's been an amazingly effective Warden. He's helped coordinate Security, and kept a level head with most issues we've had. I'd happily recommend him for the position, only because I believe he could handle it with the efficiency and respect needed for the actual post. That, and the reason that we rarely have a HoS, as it is a very demanding role.

formally decline to vote either for or against a proposal or motion.

It's not a -1. If I see things that make me think Akram is a great administrator for sec, then it'll be +1. If not, then it will be abstain. Which is not a -1.

Excuse me, whitelist applications are not the place to argue about a person's effectiveness, unless the person in question is the applicant. Lets have none of this on the applications. If you want to do something like this, then take it to a PM with the player or a complaint or a PM to the staff handling that specific type of whitelist application. People posting on applications is to give the applicant feedback. Not criticize non-applicants. If a part of the post does not include feedback of any kind (be it negative/neutral/positive), then do not include it.

Now, on the application, Kiwi:

I have recently been playing as a Security cyborg on rounds you have been playing as Warden. I haven't seen anything lacking, but also nothing exemplary in you as Security in general (since I've been often swamped with academic issues mid-round). I want to see a bit more feedback on this post about you in Security if you can get some people to talk about you. Please and thank you, it'll help in the decision making.

I think I've promoted Akram as an Acting HoS at least once in an emergency. He did the job effectivelly to the point where I didn't even have to tune into the security channel. When I ordered something over the command channel, it got done. It's more than enough if you ask me.

Even if he doesn't get him whitelisted as a HoS, I'll still consider promoting him whenever I lack a decent HoS under me.

Bokaza - Akram has never been promoted to Acting HoS, so that must have been someone else.


No? That was the other Tajaran warden, then. I'll fix that, though. Give him a try to see how he does.

While I haven't personally played with you too much because I've been busy these last five days or so, I have been watching rounds as a ghost while I have the opportunity. You seem pretty dependable and generally strike me as a good warden. I'm pretty indifferent about the Tajaran thing.
