    IRL Name: Jack Neuens


    In Game Name: DiamondViper200


    Skype Name: jack.neuens


    TeamSpeak: JackN12


    Microphone Use: Almost overused, when I'm not working I'm usually speaking to a friend or group of friends through either TS or Skype.


    Age: 19; Will be 20 on April 4


    Timezone: Central


    Hours Online During a Weekday: About 7, so around 28 hours per Monday-Friday.


    Hours Online During the weekend: About 8 per day, so close to 16-18 hours.


    Position Change: Citizen to Helper


    Introduction:

    To start things off, I have applied before, but on old version of server, however, I wasn't accepted. I do think I deserve a second chance at this and I would gladly accept the role as helper if given to me. I am an overly responsible person, achieve great things such as a 3.8 GPA with all A's (not trying to boast) and above in my classes. I would never dare turn in an assignment late, and if I have not fully understood the content of what is asked I make sure to get to get informed on the topic. I would never do anything with half effort, I instead go for the gold with every move I make, because one wrong turn and the consequences could be fatal. As well as my serious side, I can prove to have a easy going, relaxed, fun side too! I have recently started pursuing one of my interests, recording and making videos. I have intentions to make videos of the MeepCraft server, and possibly start up my very own YouTube channel. I am currently in school at UW: Madison and I play the alto saxophone in the marching band.


    Why I Should be a Helper:

    I think I have a fair shot at becoming a helper on the MeepCraft server because in my life outside of gaming I help people year round. Whether this means helping one of peers, or even my roommate with work inside or outside of class, or helping a neighbor by walking their dog or mowing their lawn for free, I have helped people enough to be recognized, rhetorically speaking, with a big green HELPER tag over my head at all times, such as you guys and girls do on MeepCraft. Also speaking from an in game point of view, every time someone asks a question such as "Shout {Name} what is the ingredient for making potions of strength, I have /pm-ed endless numbers of people on how they can solve their problems or even going to them, and helping them in person. I have found that the motto, "The only easy day was yesterday" fits me perfectly. I know this is the motto of the U.S. Navy SEALs, and I'm definitely not saying I am a SEAL, but if you are to think of it the way I do, you would see how it fits me as well. I will plow through a challenge one after another, and if I think it is too hard, I never will give up, I just push myself to try harder because I know that there always will be a new challenge to greet me when I get up the next day.


    Weaknesses:

    I wish I could say I have no weaknesses, but that would be a lie. Everyone has their own personal strengths and weaknesses. Some of these weaknesses I have could include the time of year. As most people who have been through college or at least a couple years of it should know that when it comes time for exams, you become over encumbered with all the work and studying. However, exams will come and go very fast, and are only time consuming whilst you are in the stage of preparation and studying. These exams also are only once every term and I should only have 2 years left of college, assuming I only decide to go 4 years. Another thing you could consider is my schedule for marching band, this is only a conflict usually for during football season. But when it comes to MeepCraft a weakness I'm not proud to share is that when someone decides to say something rude, I have a tendency to say something rude back, and this sometimes offends people. I have never been banned or temp-banned (thankfully) and I am continuing to try to suppress these reactions.


    Originality:

    I know this wasn't one of the topics chosen for the application, but I have decided to add it into mine as I feel that when it comes to Minecraft, originality is a huge problem when you see multiple of everything. I like to picture myself as a sort of architect whenever I sit down to play this blissful game. As we all know, originality is what defines a person and it is what they stand for.


    Conclusion:

    I know that it becomes a huge responsibility to become a helper, but I think I deserve to become a helper. I, for one, love MeepCraft. There are, as I have noticed from looking at the forums and members, not too many helpers/mods/supermods who work/play on the server. This can be a good and bad thing. The good is that it keeps the power restricted to very few, but if there are multiple modreq's out and not many helpers on, this could prove to be catastrophic, and I believe many people would quit, because most people aren't too patient when it comes to games. But I as well believe that if you (mods/helpers) were to accept me, I would do my best to fix any and all problems I come across. In the past year, MeepCraft has been one of the best experiences of my life, including numerous encounters with people I have become both virtual and real life friends with. Thank you so much MeepCraft and all those who have made MeepCraft possible. -Jack Neuens/DiamondViper200

    Diamond, your app was excellent. However there is the issue of this being your first forums post. -1 from me, but I'm sure you will get accepted in the future, if your forums and ingame activity go up. Good luck in the future! ;)

    I see you active sometimes, but not shouting as much as you need to. You also don help very much in shout. Your forums activity definitely needs to improve, try getting active member. Good app though, -1
    It is better to help the people in shout, so others can see how much you help, unless they specifically tell you to pm them.

    Your app was very good Diamond but your activity in game and on forums isn't very good. I haven't yet seen you in game and i believe this is one of your first forums posts?

    Keep active for a while and you'll do good but for now its a -.5 from me.
    Good luck

    Sorry I forgot to mention I usually pm them to help them not shout, though I will try using /shout more often. Thanks for the tips.

    I would +1 you based on your application, but I have never seen you IG/ or in shout. -1 this time for me, may turn in a +1 in 2 weeks if you are going to work on that ;)

    I applaud your application but, your first post on the forums should never be an application.

    You need to up your anty on activity.

    They aren't hating, they're simply stating what they are seeing and if they're not seeing you in /shout, teamspeak, forums or the server you're obviously not quite ready to be a staff member. You need to learn to take criticism and use it effectively, take all the negative comments and use them to make yourself a better player.
    Also, replying to every post is going to make you seem desperate for the position

    Well I'm sorry Abby, but I don't try to be rude. Its just that I'm on all the time, so I'd find it very hard to believe that no one has ever seen me online. So I will welcome the advice graciously and use it to my advantage. Thank you. P.S. I'm not desperate for the position, and I know it says on forums I'm a new member, but that's only because I just recently found out there was a forum. Therefore, I decided to make an account on website.

    First of all, it could be because of your /shout activity. If you rarely /shout, many people won't notice you.

    Secondly, I have to give this application a -0.5 because...

    1. You MUST work on your forum activity
    2. I believe that you are online a lot, but TALK. (/shout)
    3. Try not to immediately reply to people, they are posting to try to help you achieve better in the future
    4. Not only talking in /shout, but helping there as well. (Many people ask questions, you just gotta look)

    Your application was very well written yet it was one of your first posts, which can already turn a +1 to a -1. I do not think you are ready for the Helper position yet, but if you work on the 4 things I have listed, I believe you can achieve a lot! I wish you the best of luck in the future!

    Well this app is beautiful but you need more forum activity and help more in /shout.

    Keep active and playing, I see a good future from you.
