In Game Name: Lady_Hestia Skype Username: NikkiVariable Teamspeak Username: Lady_Hestia Mic use: Yes Age: 14 Timezone: Est Hours online per weekday: 1-9 Hours online per weekend: 2-15 Position Changes: Citizen to Helper Introduction: Hi there, I’m Lady Hestia. I used to be a helper on this server but I wasn’t very good at it. I’m applying again because I feel that in game I help so many people I’m a helper already. If I get the title I can do even more for the server that I love. I have always been a good student in school until a year ago I started having very severe health issues. I found this server and though sometimes I use it as an escape from life, other times I can come on and talk to really nice people and have a bunch of online friends. Though I’m not a “noob,” I haven’t played on this server as long as a lot of others, yet I feel that I know how the community runs and how I can play my part to make it better. I hate letting people down, if I upset you it really makes me feel awful. I always stick up for myself, in the past I couldn’t tell constructive criticism from people being mean but now I can. I may have used my illness as an excuse in the past but I know how immature that is and I thank Abby for helping me realize how I don’t have to make excuses but just do better. I didn’t think that I could do that- I though I had to explain myself. I hope you know me a little better now. Why I want to be helper: The months I spend as helper were the best of a large amount of my life. I know that if I’m hired again it will be even better because this time I will do more quality work. I see people getting kicked for language and I get so jealous of the helper/mod/s-mod because I want to do something great as well, and I feel this way especially when I see someone saying something awful and I can’t do anything about it. I’ve always loved volunteering for things but due to issues I have I can’t get out all the time. This is a place for me to do that with a flexible schedule and without me having to go anywhere. Why I should be hired as helper: I know I’ve posted lots of apps and I know you’re probably getting annoyed at this point but every time I post one I get comments and so in the two weeks between them I work on the comments and after I work on them I feel ready to apply again. - I feel I have matured, if you have an issue with my maturity please comment because I’m always looking to improve. - That jealously I mentioned before makes me work harder but not competitively because I respect all of the current staff. - I though hard forums work and modreqs were pretty fun so I have the motivation to work a long time. - I will take constructive criticism with maturity and always do much better after. - I am often in spawn helping out new players. When staff are offline I ask if anyone needs help and spend time answering questions and solving problems. It’s addictive to help which is why I want to do more. - Sometimes I see things that are really unfair happen to players in game and I want to be an advocate for the player (or another staff member) and help everyone to understand what happened and what needs to be done. - The fact I was demoted still stands and I understand being unable to trust me but Jackl seems to be getting another chance. Why can’t I? (I’m saying this without knowing why he was demoted but I’m assuming what I did was worse. This is just an analogy.) When I was demoted I had no idea I was even breaking the rules. I did not have any intent to actually follow though with my threat but I was looking for something to say that showed how mad I was. I thought that in the staff skype group that you could discuss things without penalty. I realize that I shouldn’t have said it there even if I could because it was immature. I think understanding the issue is the first step to being more mature about it. - Another strength I have is patience with people that don’t listen or know anything about the server. Often this is a weakness I see on staff applications. Instead of getting mad or annoyed I work out how to help them the best. - I am 100% dedicated to the server. I spend a long time online each day and I put lots of work into making it enjoyable for others. - My teamspeak activity is really good. I like being available for others to talk to directly. - I know the rules really well, in fact I know details that many veteran players don’t know. The rules have been updated recently and I will be looking over it for all of the changes. - I remember one time in the void. When we get stuck new players (and some old) freak out. There was a time I stuck it out for 30 minutes trying to help explain what was happening and make it interesting. - I’ve cooled down with my sucking up (it wasn’t meant to be sucking up but it was). The comments I make in shout are me trying to be mature, funny, and helpful. I also feel I don’t need attention as much anymore. - I try to always be in a positive mood and make people feel better. - I read lots on forums but I don’t post as much as I used to. I’m there though! My goals if I become helper: 1. Always put full effort into modreqs 2. Be a positive influence on the community 3. Do forums work that needs to be done 4. Stay in non-staff areas of teamspeak (I hear complaints of staff “hiding” in staff channels too often) Past Offenses: 1. Threatening the server. I fully apologize for all of these but this one especially. 2. Kicked for quoting Fuzzlr’s profanity 3. Kicked for inciting spam (accident) Weakness: Impulsivity: This is what got me demoted. I know it’s hard for some to understand because they do not have the issues I do. Please do not hold this against me because I now have many things to help myself including medication (this is necessary not a sign of weakness) and a rule for myself that I will wait and reread what I write before hitting enter. Typing out what I mean: I’m often thinking a couple of sentences ahead of what I’m typing so my fingers get confused. I’ve been kicked for trying to teach new players how to shout but I worded it like I was trying to incite spam. I’m now taking more time to type to reduce this. This is also why I like using quotes or references to books to help people understand what I’m saying. The references annoy certain people though. Schedule: Lately my activity has gone down to an increasing number of doctor visits and being unable to get online due to the worsening of some auto-immune disease I have (un-diagnosed at the moment). I need to take breaks due to exhaustion. I can get myself online when I need to though. Formality: I’m terrible at this. I don’t even know where to start! Maybe you guys could give me some tips in the comments. Conclusion: Meep has helped me grow as a person, and I want to help it grow as a server. Helping as a cit. is fine- good even but being staff and helping would be amazing! I know how staff works and I have worked on everything holding me back before. Though I have issues I promise to work through them. I’m sorry for the things in the past but it’s the future now and I’m ready to start a new chapter in my life on MeepCraft.
