    In Game Name: EpicK8

    Skype Username: crogkiller

    Teamspeak Username: EpicK8

    Mic use: Extremely Frequent

    Age: 17

    Timezone: EST

    Hours online per weekday:3-5

    Hours online per weekend: 10+

    Position Changes: (ex. Citizen to Helper, Helper to Mod)

    premium->helper

    Introduction:

    Hello my name is EpicK8. I live in New York City and I am on my school’s varsity football team. My true passions are football and gaming. I know this seems like a huge contradiction, but I love doing both. I have volunteered my time for many years at the Salvation Army and I love learning new things. I go to one of the most widely known school, Stuyvesant High School (adults love to brag about their kids going here in New York :p). Stuyvesant is an extremely tough academic school and it can be very time consuming, but I do appreciate how well they prepare us for college.

    Why you should be Helper/Mod ?

    I associate with staff a lot, through teamspeak and in game. Being around all of these staff members for so long and for extended periods of time, I’ve gained a lot of insight on the position and I know what it means to be staff now. I live in salad and there is also a new town being built that I am co-owner of that is an extension of Salad. This is an example of how people trust me in general and should say a lot about my character. It also says that I’m around citizens a lot and have the patience for their questions. In my old community, I was chosen to moderate a lot of events planned out, which speaks also towards how much people trusted me. I was captain of my school’s JV football team a year ago, so I know what it means to be an example and what leadership means.

    Weaknesses:

    Cursing in teamspeak can be an issue sometimes. It is out of habit, and I am working to change it. In-game and on the forums I don’t use profane language, it just slips out sometimes in teamspeak.

    Forum activity is also a bit of a weakness. I read a lot of the posts, but I don’t always comment or reply to them unless they are relevant to my opinions or something I am passionate about.

    Conclusion:

    In conclusion, I believe I am ready to take on this position. A lot of things qualify me for this, including the fact that I do a lot of things in real life act as preparation for the responsibilities of Helper. I am ready and willing to help the server if I am given the opportunity.

    This may be a bit complicated as you are still going through a chargeback thingy. But, I will give you that you are active and helpful. +1 from mrli.

    This application was very lacking. You need to elaborate on your skills and how they will benefit the community. All you talked about was being around staff and being trusted with a co-mayor position and other stuff. While trust is great, it's not enough to earn a staff position. Many upon many people can be trusted. You need to talk about what makes you unique from others, and how you're able to use your skills.
    Your weaknesses basically said "I do this, but it's okay because I also do this". It doesn't really help much at all.

    From this application, I only see that you are not ready for a staffing position. -1

    Epic,
    I was pleasantly surprised to see this. I read your application, and I will agree with others that it is lacking. So, as well as the app, I will take what I know of you personally to illustrate what I believe to be your strengths and faults.
    Strengths:
    Independent- You will not need the constant push from higher staff to keep you on your toes. You will do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done.
    Drive- You are incredibly motivated to do what is best for the server.
    Assertive- You have the ability to address issues and articulate your opinion on them strongly without coming off as aggressive
    Tough skinned- This is an often overlooked quality that I like in staff. You are incredibly thick skinned and are able to take criticism without being offended.
    Quick study- You are naturally intelligent and pick things up at a superior pace.

    Weaknesses:
    Adaptability- I mentioned above that you are thick skinned. I only wonder if you are able to change your opinion with new information and change your behavior/thought processes when justified constructive criticism comes you way.
    Language on TS- I do not really view this as a weakness, since it is mainly during private conversations with fellow adults. This could fall into the category of "Adaptability". Can you discern in which situations and around which people language is acceptable?
    Activity on forums and in /shout- You aren't very active on the forums or in /shout. This is something that can easily be remedied. I'd like to see you interact with server members outside of your group of friends.
    Age groups- Again, this could fall into adaptability. We have many different age groups on the server ranging from very young (8-11 yrs), teens and adults. I feel you are fully capable of dealing with teenagers and adults. However, I am not entirely sure how you would deal with a young child. Imagine a scenario in which you must empathize while also being firm, with a crying 9 year old about a ban or rule violation.

    I may have missed a few things. If so, I'll edit them in as I remember them. All things considered, I will give you a +1. I feel that you will learn quickly and become a very capable member of the staff team.

    •You always tell me to shut my face


    In all seriousness though,
    +0.5
    •Extremely active on ts and ingame
    •I see you a little bit around the forums, but this isn't really a big priority
    •You are very smart and ready for the position
    •You always try to help in shout and you are just naturally active in shout
    •You really gotta stop cursing on ts for real, I mean if it's a couple people it's fine but if you want to be staff, severe language and staff never go together

    That's all I'm gonna say because that's pretty much all that I can think of right now. Good luck Epic! ;)

    Oh and also I thought you said you didn't like the way staff was run and that I shouldn't apply? Why are you applying then?

    Your app is short, but that doesn't really mean anything to me because actions speak louder than words, and anyone can sit down and write a lengthy application full of bs. You are intelligent, mature, and committed to the server. You are well liked by most everyone you've come into contact with which is a very good trait for a staff member to have. If this doesn't get accepted I'll eat my hat.

    Epic, you're extremely driven and always want to get things done. That's a really good quality for a staff member to have. The only thing I would like to see you work on is patience. Other than that, I would really enjoy seeing how an interview goes for you. :)

    -.5. You're well known in the community, and generally a nice guy, but I've seen on one or two occasions where I will be in TS with you, and you will say you're intoxicated and go off swearing and ranting. That is not the kind of thing we need on the server.

    You seem like a nice guy, you are well known to the community.
    App was lacking, and it was very short.
    I think you would be a great mod if you work on some little issues.
    Good luck!

    While I don't necessarily mind you curing in TS when it's just me and bob4444444 or whatever, but when you're in groups with lots of people, it's not okay.
    forum activity is so-so, game activity is pretty nice.
    You brag about your money a lot.
    I think you would be an awesome staff member, but you need to change your attitude a bit. -.5, but good luck.
