Cornisaurus's Mod Application

Recommended Posts

a1) What is your in-game (RP) name?


a2) Provide a link to your Steam profile.


a3) What is your Discord Tag? (ie: SomeUser#1234)


a4) What timezone are you located in?

Eastern Standard Time

a5) How many in-game warns do you have?


a6) Have you ever been banned? If so, explain why?

No, and I will continue to abide by all rules.

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

I have no prior Gmod staffing experience, but do moderate for a few small discord servers and hope that I can get more Gmod moderation experience in the near future.
Please answer these questions with your honest opinion.
b1) Why do you want to volunteer for XenoRP?

I feel that moderation/staffing in any location, virtual or irl, this role represents a strong care for the community you are taking care of and keeping clean. In other words, I jsut want to help make this server as pleasant as possible.

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

At the time of writing this, there is a MRDM/Minger who is getting votekicked but keeps rejoining. I think that since I can play at the early morning hours when there  is rarely ever a mod online, I can handle these situations without having to use external help/wait for a mod. Not only this, but as a mod, rather than blatantly flying in a players view, I would moderate covertly to avoid making players act differently around me/break character.

Please provide descriptive answers for the following questions:

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

RDM is Random deathmatch, which could be considered as any hostile action that could be unwarranted/without reason. RDA is Random Arrest, which can be any case of a police officer arresting a player without a just cause, warrant, or evidence of them committing an illegal or hostile action. When done singularly/across long periods of time, the correct punishment should be a verbal warn and explanation of the rules, unless asked otherwise by a victim, in which case it can be a standard RDM/RDA warn. 3-4+ incidents of RDM/RDA in a small time period can be considered Mass Random Deathmatch or Mass Random Arrest (MRDM/MRDA) both of which can be punished with week long-multi week bans depending on severity, attitude, how informed the person is, and prior warn/ban incidents.

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

NLR, or New Life Rule, is when an RP character dies, all of their past knowledge and actions at the time of death are erased, meaning both parties, both the one who died, and the ones who killed, are responsible to form new roleplay interaction that cannot be traced back to prior lives. In cases where players were killed at their base or had ties to party members, they cannot interact with those people for 120 seconds or 2 min. Examples of new life rule breakage: Dying during a raid only to return and kill the party who killed you before 120 seconds have elapsed, returning to the sight of an RDM for revenge (just call a mod), and trying to recover a raid after being killed while defend (before 2 min have passed)

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

Metagame is when a character/player has knowledge that defies their current roleplay standpoint or is learned without roleplay interaction. Ex: a mod investigating a player's base, and then used that knowledge gain to go through the fastest route to their money clickers/decide if the base is worth raiding.
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?

Record multiple clips of the mod abusing power, gain more information on them (RP name, Steam ID) and rather than posting on the forums, I would find someone of higher ranking than the abuser, to ensure proper punishment.

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

Depending on the severity of the current sit, I would either jail the member of the current sit (if the member of the sit is untrustworthy/has several warns or bans) or just trust them to stay at the site of the sit (No warns/bans). After that, I would approach the MRDM'er, and jail them at a seperate site that is ready for a sit. If my sit is going to take a long time/is severe (MRDM/MRDA) then I will get the help of another mod to deal with the new MRDM'er. If my current sit is short, then I will deal with both sits accordingly.

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

I would verbally warn the other 2 players, who most likely thought it was ok to place props without other players online. If I returned later in the same time frame to see the props haven't been deleted, I would warn for Propspam. Anything after that is a one week ban with appeals for Mass Propspam.


Thank you for your time and consideration,

Thoughts and Personal Experiences

I've seen you on a few times, but never really interacted with you-- and I'd definitely never seen you before this week. But you at least seem active now. 

EDIT: I'm not impressed with your attitude in the discord. You insinuated that because no moderators were on at 11 AM, none of us care about the server-- and I'm told by other mods that you were expressing that same sentiment to other players in-game.

Errors in Application

Genuinely none that I could find, well done!


Has been active recently, seems to have a very good handle on the rules, no warns/bans, extremely good application.


Haven't seen you before until recently. 

EDIT: Attitude in discord and in-game is extremely poor.


(EDITED) Despite your good application and handle on the rules, I think I'd like an attitude adjustment from you before you apply to be staff.
