Please answer these questions with your honest opinion.
b1) Why do you want to volunteer for XenoRP?
- XenoRP is an incredibly fun DarkRP server that I find to be quite enjoyable, especially when people are following the rules. With that considered, I would love to do anything I possibly can to make XenoRP a safer and more fun experience for everyone alike.

b2) If you were to get accepted, what do you think would make you a good moderator?
- I believe that I would be a good moderator because in situations between two different parties, I am not biased for one group of people or person for any personal or irrelevant reasons. I would approach every situation logically and with a professional attitude. By the end of a sit, I would have come up with an agreeable and reasonable course of action.

Please provide descriptive answers for the following questions:

c1) Define RDM/RDA and describe how players who perform those actions should be punished.
- RDM and RDA have two different, but similar definitions. Both actions are done without any valid reason that abides by the rules/MOTD. RDM is the action where a user attacks and kills another player in-game with a non rule-abiding reason. RDA is the same situation, except the victim is arrested in-game without a good reason, not killed. Users who perform these actions should be dealt with depending on the context of the situation. For example, if the RDM or RDA is done out of spite or just to create a general disturbance for other players, the user should be removed from the server for a days or hours time. Another example is if the user performs the action on accident or without any knowledge that it would be against the rules. In this situation, the user should simply be given a verbal warning or real warning, and then returned to roleplay as usual.

c2) Explain "NLR" and provide examples of instances in which it is violated.
- NLR, or "new life rule", is the action where a user who has just died in-game returns to the previous situation and acts and performs as if they were never killed. Some examples of this being done includes, but is not limited to:
1. A player raids someone's base and as they are entering, they cross the designated KOS line and is killed by the base owner. The raider proceeds to return to the base and continue with the raid as if they never died.
2. A player roleplaying as a police officer begins to arrest someone for breaking the law, but as they are doing so, the criminal retaliates by killing the officer. The officer then, after respawning, runs back to the criminal's location and arrests them on the spot.

c3) Define "metagame" and provide examples of its occurrence.
- "Metagaming" is the occurrence in an roleplay situation where a roleplayer takes into consideration non-roleplay related things, such as moderators being online, a user's job or salary, or a hitman having the "hit accepted" sign above their head. This is unfair because the following situations in the examples would not be evident at all in a real-life situation, making the roleplay unrealistic.

Please explain how you would handle each of these situations:
d1) You see a higher up is abusing their powers to the highest severity, how do you react?
- Inform the other moderators and admins immediately, as well as the server owner, of the situation.

d2) During a sit, you see someone outside of the sit Mass RDMing. How do you handle the situation?
- Politely tell the person(s) in the sit to wait just a moment, and settle the issue with the mass RDMer as efficiently and appropriately as possibly in order to return to the sit in a justified and convenient amount of time.

d3) Only two other players are online, and they're building in the streets.
- Inform them of the rule against building in the streets, and advise that they either become a hobo job or delete their props. I would also remember to state that as a hobo they still can't build on the roads, only the sidewalk.
