    My name is Matthew James Sawyer, I am twenty-nine years old and I live in Michigan. I have four children, the oldest is 12 and my youngest is 3. I say this because I thought I should delve further into who I am. To those who know me, I have a complicated, and sorted past, but am found to be open, and honest with my experiences and opinions. I am a person who can admit they are wrong, but will not stop when they are right. I am extremely open-minded and generally view all walks of life optimistically.

    I originally achieved Helper on March 5th, 2013 in MeepNetworks after a horrible application and the shortest interview in my life. In short time, I found I really excelled at one thing, player relations. On a modreq, I am patient, understanding, and I spend time with the person who needs help to make sure all their questions, or concerns are addressed. This includes not only helping them with their direct issue in a communicative way, to ensure I am with that player step by step. After this is solved, I always make sure to address any other questions they might have on any other issues.

    Aside from how I address modreqs I also understand the finer points of moderation. I understand when a ban is effective or not, or if another indirect method of moderations will be more effective in situations. I do not resort to a ban to correct behavior, but use dialogue with the player, using bans as a last resort, or if the conduct is unacceptable enough.

    Having children, I think I have a leg up in this role, as you have to learn to guide them, and be patient with their choices. I understand a bad choice doesn’t make you a bad person, and in this, I am able to form very close relations with the very people who I’ve had an antagonistic past with. I value this ability very much, and I think this will help me intregrate into the community as a helper.

    This experience, and understanding, coupled with what I have done for the server in my previous terms are why I believe I am qualified for the helper position. I know if given the chance I will be able to effectively complete modreqs with professionalism, politeness, and I try to make every player I help leave with a smile, as I believe that is my job, to make the player glad they asked for helped. I have always believed in this, and have worked in relation with that ideology.

    As effective as I am in helping people, I have also a number of personal weaknesses. One of these are I can be stubborn, and I can be opiniated. While I never intend to insult or offend anyone, I will engage in a discussion should I feel another way. These discussions are not small direct comments on an idea, but I try to be a substantive point of view into the discussion, outlining why I feel a certain way, what solutions I believe to work, etc. I realize sometimes this rubs people the wrong way, and I see that this may not always be a good thing. But I believe that an open dialogue regardless is always beneficial for the team, as long as the discussion is done in a mature, and tactful way.

    In December, I was asked to resign, and then banned for spawning in gold. While not a ongoing weakness it is something that has happened, and it feels proper to include in this any staff application I may have, to promote being open and honest about it. This is a weakness that has no chance of recetivism, nor any acts akin to this one. But it does show that I have made bad decisions in the past.

    I have a tendacy to be direct at times, which may come across as too blunt, and isn’t as productive as I want it to be. This is something I work on, and isn’t a product of trying to be rude to someone, as often times it’s just me being too direct for my own good. However, as staff, I tend to take more time before addressing a player, in order to make sure what I type isn’t too blunt, direct, or rude.

    But enough with the fluffy statements that everyone writes. This community and server, both which I hold dear, and which has made me a better person, knows who I am. They know the good and bad of what I’ve done. I spawned in gold, and I betrayed trust from people I held dear, and I lost very valuable friendships. This happened five months ago, and since then I’ve been trying to rebuild that trust and those friendships. Some of that will never happen, unfortunately.

    If accepted, I can ensure you that I will bring the same level of due diligence I’ve always had when it comes to modreqs. I will continue to strive for personal excellence, professionalism, and making sure players walk away from their modreq with a smile, and satisfaction. I will do my job to the best of my abilities, and I hope I will bring real and good contributions to the server as a whole.

    In conclusion, I ask for another chance to show the server that my one mistake, as horrible, and stupid as it was, does not define me or what I do. Everything that I have done outside that does define me, and what I do. Thank you for reading this, and thank you for your time.

    FIRST YES +1000000000

    I viewed Deinen, during his staff time, as the best staff member on MeepCraft. He needs to be a helper again.

    Editted application to change the sentence:

    "Everyone that I have done outside that does define me, and what I do."
    to
    "Everything that I have done outside that does define me, and what I do."

    +1 I personally am a man of reason, and I have found, that there are a disappointingly few men of reason on throughout. You sir, are one of those few. And for me, the fact that you are a man of reason qualifies you to be staff. Not only that but you were staff in MN. Good luck to you.

    Also, let me say, I will be surprised if you get any -1s.

    Ive been good friends with deinen for quite a while. I know of him as a just and very fair person. If staff can excuse him for what he did in the past, I am positive Deinen0 would make the perfect helper.

    Denien is a smart, intelligent, and typically reasonable person.

    Application was good as I expected nothing less.

    You've made your mistakes as we all have, and you can even admit what you did. Best we can all do is move on, past your previous mistake, and realize that we are all human at the end of the day.

    This is the reason there should be a dislike button...

    +1 Deinen I could put about 60 bullet points and they would all be positive :)

    I think you are confusing applications. This is deinens application... Not Krazycats...

    I'm a little curious where a banned player gets his info from. Also I would love to see you name (and prove) at least 10 people in the community that dislikes Deinen.
    pretty sure you need to put reasons. Sheepism (being Krazycats alt) is not a reason.

    You're banned.

    You don't see him at all so you have no good reason to -1. Deinen is immature? You're the immature one for blatantly calling him immature from nowhere.

    +1 Reasons above.

    +1, I think its time to give you another chance.
    You are mature and I see you in game lots. You need to work on TS activity.

    Good luck!
