Introduction: Hey all, many of you have gotten to know me within the past 6 years I have played on Meepcraft. For those of you that I have not had the pleasure of getting to know yet, I’m Adam (I have always been Adam34falcon in-game) and I am 15 years old. I live in a fairly small town in Ohio. While sadly not currently in school due to the coronavirus, I am a freshman this year in high school. I can confidently say that my favorite subject is science. I am super excited to take chemistry next year! I got a little taste of chemistry when I had to do a science fair project, where I refined silver coins into pure silver powder using nitric acid and copper. My three main hobbies are investing/finance (I hope to study business administration in college), collecting watches, and playing video games (admittedly mostly Meepcraft!). Since I have been staying at home all day for the past few weeks, I have also taken a much larger interest in music, especially with jazz. My long term life goal is to eventually end up starting a business, most likely within the precious metals industry (A precious metals refinery, perhaps). I do have a very small business venture that I took up last year which is a candy-machine business. I am considering expanding this business within the next few years depending on how it fairs while we get through this pandemic. In-game, I have owned many towns throughout the years and have been a resident of even more. Right now I live in Oark, and assist with anything I can when needed. Since the revamp and the influx of more players, I have actually been having a lot of fun just visiting random towns and shops and interacting with some of the old players that have returned. Why should you be Helper? To preface why I am submitting this application for a helper role, I want to confront a past that I am not proud of nor excited to talk about. As I stated in my introduction, many of you already know who I am. When I joined Meepcraft six years ago, I was constantly warned, kicked, and banned for a variety of reasons. Although I have never hacked or exploited the server, I have annoyed, disrupted, scammed, killed unfairly (in-game, obviously ), and overall hurt many members of this community. For that, I deeply apologize for my actions and I promise I would take it back if I could. However, I believe that I am now much more mature and aware of my actions compared to when I joined Meepcraft, and when I submitted my past applications (while I was 12 or 13). So with that message in mind, let me explain why I believe I could benefit our staff team either now or in the future: Determination: We can observe many examples of determination every day of our lives. Within the past couple of years, I grew an abrupt sense of determination, which occurred at the beginning of 8th grade when I was actually enjoying pretty much everything that I was doing. I honestly believe that determination can be a two-sided sword (I will go on as to why I think my determination can be a weakness for me as well and how I plan on combating that weakness below). For the bright side of determination regarding my life, I always follow through with what I started, even if I am uncomfortable doing so. Give me something to get done, and I will get it done to the best of my ability, and then I’ll go at it again, and again, and again until everyone is satisfied with the outcome. Responsibility: I was not responsible when I joined Meep. I was not responsible when I played on Meep for my first, my second, my third year, and even further than that. I am responsible now though, and I can easily apply my responsibility to arising problems in Meepcraft. Since the revamp, I have not once gotten kicked nor banned. I have been a good member of this community and I have helped out both new and old members of this community during problems that they were facing. Responsibility can be a big issue no matter where you are or what you are doing. I am now extremely self-controlled and accountable. Cooperation: At this point in my life I am kind of a “go with the flow” guy. I think that I have definitely shown this as a town staff member in Oark. I rarely start arguments, and when I do, I believe that they are well-warranted and beneficial to the task at hand. I can shut up when I need to, but I can lead as well (this stems from leading our “safety patrol” in fifth grade all the way up to ninth grade both leading and being on different clubs and councils. I constantly work with many different types of people both in real life and in Meepcraft. This has helped me hone-in on my ability to work well with others and achieve the goals that we have in mind. Meepcraft/Minecraft Experience: As I stated in my introduction, I have been playing Meepcraft since 2014 and Minecraft for even longer. This has allowed me to learn and perfect my knowledge on various commands we have on Meepcraft, and other commands in Minecraft (although I am still learning Extreme). While I don’t know the staffing aspect of the server, I would say that I know pretty much everything else about Meepcraft. This knowledge will allow me to help players in need when others cannot. I am also attentive and I respond to messages as soon as possible; I can keep multiple conversations going at once while easily keeping track of the situation. Communication/Professionalism: We all joke around with our friends. Some of us remain professional at all times while interacting with the public, while others take a more simple and laid-back route (both ways have pros and cons obviously). I get that this is a Minecraft server, but for some people, I understand that professionalism goes a long way. I can absolutely remain professional when interacting with any players, especially while acting in an official staff capacity representing the server and the staff team. I actually enjoy remaining professional and it makes me feel good to know that I was able to impact someone’s life in a calm and cool demeanor, even if that impact is extremely small. What are your weaknesses? Determination: Going off of what I said about my determination, let me talk about the dark side of determination that I see. One issue that I sometimes face is choosing the wrong thing to latch onto, and I don’t let go. When I start something, I finish it through. This can be bad for me because if I choose the wrong thing to prioritize on, it can hurt me and others in the long run because I was too “determined” to stop and move on. I believe that I can combat this weakness by working with other members of the staff team, and taking in their input and suggestions before I move on to a new project. Outside Involvement: I don’t use “mainstream” social media (Instagram, Facebook, etc.) at all. I use Discord commonly but I have not really been active in having conservations and interacting with members of the community on Meepcraft’s main discord server. Also, I would like to see more activity from myself on forums. I will try my best to start more conversations and interact with more members on discord, and I will become more active on our forums as well. Impatient: I am impatient. I can’t do much to change that, it has been part of my life for 15 years and it will continue for another 15 years more. This can negatively impact me on Meepcraft by rushing to get stuff done that I don’t necessarily find interesting. As I said, I cannot do much to change myself being impatient, but I will take a break if the situation allows for it and I will also contact other staff members to give me advice on how to further the situation along in a positive way. I do not think that this will affect me as much as it would have a few years ago when I applied. Please give any other information you might think is useful for us to know: There is one other thing that I wanted to mention. A little over a week ago after a member of our community got banned, I talked publicly about the ban reason in global which I should not have done. I apologize for this and it will not happen again. Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and I just want to say again that I believe that I have come a long way since I joined Meepcraft 6 years ago. I am loving the revamp so far and have made many new friends, and reconnected with even more old friends.
