    What am I called in-game?
    My IGN is chaos546.

    What am I called on TeamSpeak?
    My TeamSpeak name is chaos546.

    Do I regularly use a microphone?
    I always use a microphone on TeamSpeak.

    How old am I?
    I am fourteen years old.

    What timezone am I in?
    I am in the MST timezone, or in other words, GMT -7.

    How long am I online for during the week?
    On weekdays, I am generally online for between 3 to 5 hours a day, depending. I also tend to go on later on in the day, normally between 5:00pm and 11:00pm, my time. I get on earlier and stay on later on Fridays.

    How long am I online for during the weekend?
    During the weekend, I'm normally online for between 4 to 8 hours a day, again depending. Generally speaking, I am on less on Sundays due to homework and having to go to sleep earlier for school and whatnot. I get on at any time during the day. I also often have Fridays off, so I have weekend hours on those days. Finally, I sometimes have Thursday-Friday off, or Monday-Tuesday, or Friday-Monday. These very long weekends generally happen during holidays.

    What position am I applying for?
    I am applying for the position of Moderator.

    What is my personality like?
    Well, as many of you know, I'm chaos546, also known as Cha. My given name, in real life, is Natalie, although I have plenty of nicknames, including simple things like Nat, or more confusing names like Nana, Nanachan, and even Natattack. I love any nicknames though, so if you want to give me your own unique nickname for me, that's totally cool with me.

    As I said above, I am fourteen years old. My birthday is on December 3rd, and I live in Canada and have my whole life.

    I love any animals, but especially cats and birds, and I love to read, write, draw, and photograph. I don't do any of these things as often anymore, but they are still some of my very favourite things to do.

    However, the thing I do the most, a probably seen by the fact that I am even here, is play games. My dad works at a video company and I've basically grown up around video games; I can't remember a time when I haven't watched someone play a game. I love playing video games myself as well, and some of my favourite franchises are Pokemon and The Legend Of Zelda, though I have many other favourites as well.

    Generally speaking, I tend to be a fairly friendly person, especially on the forums. I tend to be different when typing than when speaking, as when typing I am more confident and tend to type more than I would say out loud. I can sometimes seem distant or even rude when typing, but I try not to do this if I catch myself doing it. However, I am actually a fairly shy person in real life, and if I am uncomfortable, will probably not talk at all if you are with me on TeamSpeak. Though, those who have heard me on TeamSpeak when I am comfortable probably know me as who I am in real life under the same circumstances; a fairly silly person who laughs a lot and talks to herself while playing games.

    Why do I think I should be considered to be a Moderator?
    Well, I have my reasons, like all applicants, so bear with me while I elaborate on each and hopefully don't bore you all.

    The first is the amount of time I've been a Helper. I was promoted exactly three months ago. In the beginning, and throughout, I've had a lot of issues with activity and with a few mistakes that I can honestly say I've never forgotten, and probably never will. However, I have learned a ton and I can truthfully say that I have grown not only as a staff member but also as a person on the whole. I've gone from being a shy and slightly helpful person to a person I can be proud of. Throughout my time as a staff member so far, I've tried to work hard on the weaknesses I had in my last application, and I feel I've really been able to remedy the issues I've had whilst being Helper.

    That's really where I'd like to start this next paragraph; at how much I've overcome the weaknesses I originally had. I have tried hard since I wrote my first application to solve those weaknesses to the best of my ability, and I can honestly say I have them under control. I dedicated myself to making sure that nothing like that happened again, and succeeded.

    Another asset I have is that I always strive to get the best answer I can. I make sure that I ask everyone if they have any other questions or things I can help with after I help them with their original issue, and I will gladly spend hours at a time helping the same person with an issue. I try to have quality over quantity; that is, I'd rather have every person I help feel at least a little satisfied after I'm through rather than just answer the one question so that I can seem more productive. I am always willing to help out with any issue that people have, as long as it is in my power to do it. I see this as a big personality trait to have, as I always try to make people happy.

    Due to the fact that I can get on the forums almost anywhere, naturally my activity here is a big factor. I know I'm on the forums a lot more than I am in game, which can be an issue, but I feel closer to the community this way and that I can get to know people better. I have several forums watched, and try to get to each of my alerts as fast as I can. I am also able to quickly hop on the ball of things here to the best of my ability.

    Now, below, in the Weaknesses section, you'll see me mention my anxiety. I count it as both a weakness and a strength; for example, if I make a mistake, I try my hardest to remedy or compensate anyone who I could've hurt with that mistake. I care whether or not people are enjoying themselves, and worry if I feel I haven't done a good job. When I have this feeling under control, it can help me to work harder to make sure I do my best, so I count that as part of my strengths.

    What are my weaknesses?
    I'd be the first to admit that I'm not all rainbows and kittens. I have a fair amount of weaknesses myself, that I have been working hard to remedy to the best of my abilities.

    First and foremost, I'd like to start with my in game and TeamSpeak activity issues. Yes, I know that no one likes it when these are included, but I honestly see these as part of my weaknesses and especially part of what has led me to delay applying. Now, my in game and TeamSpeak activity go hand in hand for me, as I only have TeamSpeak on the laptop that I play on, so I go on both at the same time. Anyways, due to certain family rules and other things in real life, I sometimes have periods of inactivity on these fronts. The past three months of me being a Helper have been punctuated by these times. I believe I have mostly fixed these, or at least the best I can.

    Now, there's also the issue of the fact that around strangers or large groups on TeamSpeak, I tend to be a very quiet person. I've worked on this, and generally can get pretty comfortable with people in ten minutes, at most. However, I tend to have troubles plucking up the courage to even switch into channels with people I'm not comfortable with. I need to work on this a bit more, I'll admit, though it can be difficult. I'll elaborate on this lower down.

    A small weakness I can think of is that I tend to never forget if a player did something I consider atrocious, or even a little bad. Some may not consider this a weakness, but it can make it difficult for me to treat them nicely if I know they've been horrible to someone at some point. I tend to try to 'forgive, but never forget' and therefore if they do something even remotely wrong after that, even if it is as far as a year after, I tend to move towards treating them like someone who constantly breaks rules. This isn't that serious anymore, but I count it as a sort of grudge-holding that can be bad.

    A few more little things, like sometimes getting a little bit impatient with those who constantly repeat themselves, or ask me the exact same question several times, but I rarely snap at people for this.

    Finally, my last weakness; anxiety. I've had bursts of anxiety ever since I was little, and sometimes it can affect me in major ways on the server. For example, if I make a mistake, such as kicking the wrong person, I feel sick and often want to just get off immediately. If I post something that could have both good effects and bad, I obsessively check it. It is sometimes crippling, and sometimes barely noticeable, but it can affect me in my work and therefore is something I want to include here. I have ways of helping myself no longer feel as anxious, but I want to mention it nevertheless as it can be a very bad thing sometimes.

    For all of my weaknesses, I have tried to develop ways to remedy or work around them.

    So what does this all add up too?
    All in all, I feel that I can better use my abilities as a Moderator. I can overcome my weaknesses with a bit of dedication, and I always try for the best for the community. I've learned a lot through my time as a Helper, and I truly feel that I am as ready as I'll ever be to apply.

    Thanks for taking time to read,

    Chaos, you have no freaking clue how long I've waited for this app, I've been annoying you ever since, like, forever, to apply for Mod.

    Overqualification is the state of being skilled or educated beyond what is necessary for a job. There can often be high costs for companies associated with training employees. This could be a problem for professionals applying for a job where they significantly exceed the job requirements because potential employers may feel they are using the position as a stepping stone.

    Overqualified candidates may be seen as taking the position temporarily in order to obtain work experience for another position or taking the position temporarily until better employment can be found. Therefore it may be in a company's interest to reject job candidates that significantly exceed their job requirements because they are "overqualified" and not likely to be loyal to a position or company. An example would be an experienced high level manager who is overqualified for a low level management position

    Chaos, let me begin by saying that you are very smart. I would love it if you were to become a moderator. Your work is always excellent, and even if your modreq count was low in the past, it was due to inactivity and not because you didn't want to do modreqs. I want you to know out of the gate that my vote is around a +.25 just because of some things I find a bit shaky, which I will explain below.

    I really hope you are comfortable with scamming and luring cases. I find it kind of odd that you haven't banned someone for luring, and you only banned someone once for scamming wth help from Boobear. However, I know you are smart and could probably figure these situations out when the time comes. When people apply for moderator, I really just want to make sure that they are nearly solid on everything they need to know. This is because helpers will ask you questions and it is best if you know the answers. Don't get me wrong, I still learn something new every single day I am staff. The fact of the matter is that experience is key and I don't see that you have a lot of experience in some areas.

    Good luck.

    I'm glad you brought up this point, Lex.

    While I agree that I haven't dealt with these cases often, I have lost my fear of asking for help within the first few weeks of being Helper, and I don't think I'll have any issues asking for help if I become a moderator. Nevertheless, I have asked questions about luring before and I know how to investigate a luring. I am confident that if/when faced with a luring or scamming case, I know what to do, and if not, I would not have any issues with dropping a quick question to the other staff members.

    I honestly was going to wait to post this until I was sure I had dealt with each case, but I realized that if I was comfortable in how to solve it and if I know I can ask for help if need be, I don't really need to wait.

    Thank you so much for asking, and I hope I was able to put some of your worries to rest.
