FireMoonFly's Staff Application
What is your IGN (In-game Name)? FireMoonFly
What is your age? 14
What time-zone are you located? Eastern Standard Time (EST)
What position are you applying for? Helper/Moderator, whatever the server needs at the moment
How many hours a week do you think you would be able to commit to moderating/helping?
I should be available for a minimum of 7 hours a week, although I’ll probably be available for longer depending on the week. I try to be on for at least 1 hour, possibly 2 a day.
These are all what-if scenarios. Please make sure to answer them completely and honestly. There is no wrong or right answer with these, just what you feel that you should do, or what should be done. Be as specific as possible with these answers as well please.
If you are online, and a group of people come onto the server and start cussing/swearing at other players, what should you do?
In such an event I would first clear chat, then warn them that using that kind of language on our server is intolerable, and that if they continue to do it they will be muted. If they persisted in cursing/swearing at other players, I would first take a screenshot, then mute them and clear chat.
If you are wandering around as a moderator/helper and you come across something that is racist or not allowed on the server, what steps you you take to make sure it is reported properly?
I would first take a screenshot, as then I would have proof of what had occurred. Then, depending on if the creator of the item/building has already been punished for a similar offence I may remove it and place a sign stating that it had been removed and that it violated the server’s rules while taking note of the coordinate or may do what I have stated previously as well as issue a 3-day ban for the player(s) who have created such an item/building.
If you see that there is an argument occurring in chat what would you do to mediate the situation and keep everyone calm?
The first thing I would do is begin recording. This way if the situation gets out of control, or if evidence is needed it can be provided. After that, I would request that both parties calm down, breathe, and attempt to solve the issue in a civil manner. I believe that a win-win is the best possible scenario, so both parties are happy with the outcome. However, if that isn’t possible, I would try and understand both sides of the conflict and from there make a decision that I believe that is fair. If any of the involved parties feel that the decision I had made is unfair, then I would be more then willing to explain why I had come to the decision that I did.
After seeing multiple names log in and it occurs to you that it’s a bot attack, what would you do to maintain peace on the server with other players while staff/admins take care of the situation?
I would speak in chat and tell everyone to stay calm, and that the server’s staff and admin team are trying their hardest to stop the bot attack. I would also periodically remind everyone that we will get this fixed.
These are just general questions about you as a person and why you feel you would be a great addition to our growing staff team.
What do you feel makes a person a good candidate for a moderator/helper position (i.e. skills and assets)?
I feel that someone that would be a good candidate for a moderator/helper position should have a basic knowledge of the commands that the server uses in order to properly do their part as a staff member. I also think that they should always be ready to help other players if they need anything. They should become and stay an active member in the community, and show compassion towards others. However, I think that one of the more important qualifications that a staff member should have is the ability to realize when they have made a mistake and take steps in order to correct their mistakes.
How do you think you’ve helped with the server and the player base we currently have?
Whenever I’m online and a new player joins the server, I always offer to give them a tour around spawn and given them some basic materials to get started. Furthermore, I have always been an extra pair of hands someone could come to if they needed help with anything.
What do you feel makes you stand out, and why should we pick you to become part of the staff team?
I think that I should be a staff member because I am a kind person who is always willing to lend a helping hand. The other reason for why I think I should become a staff member is because I feel that I would bring a unique personality and cultural diversity to the staff team.
@FireMoonFly Thank you for taking the time to fill out the application!
Cosmic and I would love to have an interview with you sometime this weekend to discuss the possibilities of you joining the staff team. 🙂
Let me know a good time that works for you this weekend the 14th-15th and we can set up a meeting.
