When are you on Aurora?: Normally during deadhour and a few livehour rounds... Normally on for one-four rounds depending on my mood and what the previous gamemodes were.... On the weekends if I'm feeling extra bored I'll come on as-well.
How long have you played SS13?: Three years and one month..
How long have you played on Aurora: Two years and six months..
How much do you know about SS13 (Baystation build) game mechanics?: I can code a few things, I also dabble in the mapping arts.. I have a good grasp on it..
Do you have any experience moderating for an SS13 server?: I do. I was an Administrator on Archangel before it closed down, I was also a former trial mod for this server, I dabbled as an admin for Fallout13 for a stint, I also dabbled as a Developer if that counts.. On fallout13 for awhile..
Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Twice.. One for getting a bit heated in an admin discussion with DatBerry... and the other for a forum complaint.. Both were warranted and I regret my actions leading up to them.
Why do you play SS13?: To cure boredom and wind down.. Thats really all there is too it.. I don't play any stressful roles anymore like Security and just chill out..
Why do you play on Aurora?: Because its not full of murderbone stress inducing people who play on SS13 only to kill.. And because I enjoy it.. As I said before its a good way to wind down, chill out and just have fun after a long day.. And I'd rather have it kept that way.. With the occasional xenomorph event.. wink wink nudge nudge.
What do moderators do?: Enforce the rules, help new players, and maintain the servers atmosphere of roleplay.. They aren't there to go out and punish people or to make the server strict, unfun and freedomchoking, but there to help.. For example, one of the main ways people get information about the game is by ahelping especially if it involves IC information.. Its a staff members job to reply to that and give their take on whats what and help that person out..
What does it mean to be a moderator for our server?: I touched on the bit in the previous sentence up above this one.. It means enforce the rules, help new players, and maintain the servers atmosphere of roleplay.. They do a lot of other things too, random things that can be viewed as helpful.. Lets whip up an analogy here.. They are like one big teddy bear whos main goal is to make sure everything runs smoothly and everyone has fun, who also happens to have a mace.. That teddy bear is there to keep things secure, in a warming friendly environment while being ever observant for any mischievous deeds that go on about and threaten the servers atmosphere of roleplay or a players sense of own roleplay.. Such as Baldy McCheferson going about destroying all the food the shiftstart Chef made for no other reason then to be an ass.. A moderator would speak to that person, figure out why they did that, and come to a conclusion based on their actions..
Why do you want to be a moderator?: To maintain the friendly, roleplay enforced environment and to just help people out.. I don't think there is more to be said on the subject.. I've always considered myself a helper and this is a good way to put that passion to use..
What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?:
How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: I'm not gonna lie.. I use to be a hothead, a loose cannon, a goofball, a rude dude.. But that's all in the past now.. People say what they want to say over the Internet.. Its not worth the time or energy to get angry over the stupid things people may say.. As far as Stress and Anger go.. I rarely become angry anymore.. And if I do become angry I distance myself from the situation and bottle it up like a healthy adult.. And Stress.. Stress on a space station video game is nothing like the Stress I go through on a daily basis... Studying for four hours or more cramming every single piece of knowledge into my brain when said knowledge is jotted down in my second language.. Now thats stress... I can handle stress pretty well is what I'm trying to say.. Stress is apart of daily life and if you can't handle it to some degree its going to be hard to do mundane tasks.. Fun fact about stress.. Its simply a squirt of adrenaline into your bloodstream in response to threat or pressure..
