a7) Do you have any prior staffing experience? If so, where?

I do not, but I've been playing for 6 years and I have an extremely well understanding of the MOTD.


Please answer these questions with your honest opinion.
b1) Why do you want to volunteer for XenoRP?

Well, I've been playing on XenoRP for about 2 years now.  I believe I've built up somewhat of a reputation & I've gotten to know everybody so well.  It's truly one of my favorite Gmod servers of all time because of the people, and the atmosphere.  I really like it so that's why I figured I'd try to be staff.

b2) If you were to get accepted, what do you think would make you a good moderator?

Due to the pandemic and me being inside more: I'd be extremely commited to it by being online almost everyday of the weak.  I'd be extremely consistent and I will think long and diligently about my decisions.  I will handle every sit carefully


Please provide descriptive answers for the following questions:

c1) Define RDM/RDA and describe how players who perform those actions should be punished.

RDM Stands for "Random Deathmatch" , It is when a player randomly kills someone or multiple people with no real intention or reasoning behind it.  It is often done by trolls mainly. 

RDA Stands for "Random Arrest" , which is when a player is randomly arrested by a person with a government class.  

I believe every situation is different & the punishment truly depends on how severe the situation is.  An example of this: Somebody mass rdms a group of 10-12 people should be banned for 3 weeks minimum if not permanently.

Now, If somebody rdms 3 people but they're truthfully new to roleplaying or GMOD. I think they should be given a verbal warning and taught how things really work, and if they do it again they should be given a real warning.

I believe the same applies to RDA, It depends on the severity of the situation.

c2) Explain "NLR" and provide examples of instances in which it is violated.

NLR which also means "New Life Rule" is the understanding that you will completely forgot your last life after your character died.  You are not allowed to return to your spot of death for a certain amount of time (which varies each server) Or get revenge on your killer.    An example of this rule being broken could be somebody getting raided and killed and then immediately returning and killing those who killed them.

c3) Define "metagame" and provide examples of its occurrence.

Metagaming is when a player uses outside sources in games.  Basically breaks reality to roleplay.  An example of this is a Swat Member putting a warrant on a meth cook and breaking in just because they heard the noises outside of the house.  This wouldn't work as it's not realistic, which is why this isn't allowed.  


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?

No matter what my relationship or history is with the person I'd never be bias or apply favoritism.  I'd truthfully report it to the staff because abusing powers isn't fair to other players.  I'd make sure it'd get taken care of right away & would notify all the higher ups until it'd get worked out.

d2) During a sit, you see someone outside of the sit Mass RDMing. How do you handle the situation?

I would pause the sit I was currently in & immediately handle the situation by banning the person for an amount of time that varies within the amount of people  killed.  I believe those who Mass RDM are in the server to minge and probably wouldn't wanna take it serious.  I'd most likely make it a perma ban if it was over 8 people. 

d3) Only two other players are online, and they're building in the streets.

I'd still treat it as if 50 players were on , I'd make sure they're hobos at first and if so I would make them build only in areas they're allowed to build (which is not the streets).

 

I really hope I get accepted because I really like this server & the staff team for it.  Thank you for checking out my application

Thoughts and Personal Experiences

I know you're somewhat active and you've been on the server for a while, but honestly, I haven't seen you on much lately and I haven't spoken to you very often. I don't have any meaningful thoughts about you, other than I don't like that you waited until exactly 10 minutes before the moderator application meeting to post your app. 

Errors in Application

Your application as a whole is pretty sloppy, and has a lot of typos and errors.

c1) Punishments are way off, and not enough detail is gone into. You don't even mention the punishments for RDA.

c2) You mention the NLR timer, but you don't seem to know what the exact time is for our server, which worries me if you've truly been playing for two years.

d1) Make sure you collect evidence-- don't just report it.

d2) Again, your punishment for Mass RDM is way off.

d3) It doesn't matter if they're hobos.

Pros

If you've been on as long as you say you have, you should know the rules pretty well by now. You also have no warns or bans.

Cons

Haven't seen you recently, and despite your high playtime, you don't seem to have as firm an understanding of the rules as I'd like. Also, as aforementioned, your application is pretty sloppy and riddled with errors.

Conclusion

I don't know you very well, so I'm going to withhold complete judgement; however, I'm not impressed by your application, and I think you should become a little more active before you apply for staff.
