Pros:
  • Filed many reports.
  • Long-time regular; has been consistently active since September 2020.
  • Multiple staff vouched for you having a good attitude & rule-knowledge on your last application.
Neutral:
  • Answers for application could be more fleshed out.
  • English could use some work, but it's not to the point that I have a hard time understanding you.
  • Not in the Steam group.
Cons:
  • Had an outburst in the main channel after their last application was declined, insulting someone who mistakenly reported you.
    • I understand finding the situation frustrating, but you could've went about it way, way better.
  • No previous staff experience.
    • Minor con, but it'd be better if you did. Though, I understand everyone has to start somewhere.
  • Recent Discord infractions for using the f-slur and shitposting in the reports channel.
    • Also lots of punishments from May, notable a week-long ban for mass freekilling and leaving the server. Granted, it's been 2 months since then, but I'd expect someone who's been playing for so long to not have punishments this recent.
  • Under-18.
    • Again this is a minor con, but when voting, I count this against underage applicants, since it means they can't handle NSFW rule violations.
I'm voting -1. Even disregarding the minor ones, the cons are too much of a concern for me to support you just yet.

  • Wasn't regularly checking forums when last application was pending; ergo, wasn't receptive to replies from staff.

I'm posting this for a bit of context for other voters first off that outburst have very much been the climax of an ongoing argument with the person in question. they have just took something out of context. its just me getting mad at them for getting something I was looking forward to taken away. 2 that shitposting in reports was a mistake I apologized for it at the time. 3 i do regularly check the formens its just from my phone mostly which I cant log into and due to the fact i have been working late as of the last few weeks so i cant respond to stuff. again i dont expect you to change your vote as this is just context for others

Through interactions I've had with you, and knowing you throughout my entire experience here, your dedication to this community is immense. Your reports, activity, etc. That all backs it up. Seeing others online alongside with you genially having a good time, makes me smile. You are heavily known in this community, there's no denying that. Your overall rule knowledge is great, you've even helped me a lot of times when a situation comes up.

With recent events that have came up, and the reason why you got punished, it's a mess by itself. Without context it looks like you ghosted. Through further investigation, that was not the case. It ended up as a false report and the person in question has confirmed that. However, going into an outburst wasn't the best way to handle the situation. But we're all human, and I can see that you've regretted the outburst since. I don't think this event reflects the person you are, it was more of a "heat of the moment" situation.

Through some mishaps you had over the course of being on this server, I still truly think you'd be a great addition. I wish you the best Mr. Alien.

-1 for me.
First of all, the app, if you can even call this one, is poorly done. This looks really rushed, and compared to your previous one done on Jul/17, has absolutely, and I mean literately, no changes at all. You basically just copy and pasted your rushed app and reused it.
Disregarding your app, your in-game activity is decent. Chat's clear.
More effort would be better.
Good Luck <3

This entire situation has been a headache, to put it lightly. However, getting declined because of a mere joke is definitely enough justification for a bit of anger - staff are people too, not cold machines. All in all, it doesn't affect my opinion on your capabilities as a staff member.
Aside from that, your application leaves a bit to be desired. But as I've said before, an application isn't really a proper diagnostic on whether someone should be staff or not. Besides that, you're consistent in your playtime and report a lot of rulebreakers. From my personal experiences with you, you seem willing to put in as much effort as you can into this community.
I'll be giving you a +1. Good luck, alien.

Thanks for the context. I'm still going to keep my vote, but I've removed your forum activity as a con.

Hi Alien.



I've seen almost everyone talk about your dedication, I can for one agree that you are dedicated, but this application really doesn't show it. It's usually not my go to -1 reason, but unless Stao or someone told you that you could just copy and paste it, it's still way too short. Staff applications are meant to show how much you are attempting to put into this community, and how much you have done. If I were to know nothing about you and just purely read your application and vote, It would definitely be a -1. You could've atleast asked for help, especially on the case that you got to re - apply. It's very concerning for me.

I would +1 and add on the reasons like how your incredibly motivated and active on here, but the negatives overcome the positives now. When you were declined due to your mute, you had an outburst in main and blaming others for your application getting declined. Whether the gag was false or not, which I've come to an understanding that it was (false), You still had that very strange outburst. Some almost thought you'd leave. I don't want a staff member to work aside me thinking nor acting like that.

What I wish you could learn from this, if this does get declined, to take a step back and view the long run and how what you might do will affect anything else. If you were to have a clean slate, and apply with a longer application in a month, I would almost bet on you getting accepted. I hope you can change from the person we've been seeing recently.

I would formally like to apologize. As the days go on I find more and more problems caused by the altercation. I have hurt others, I have lost my reputation among friends and staff. I have cut ties with the other offending person. I now have s lot of gilt for what happened. as this all started with this app and i want to end it with this app. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for the ones I hurt. even though the event is still in the minds of everyone. I hope you can find it in you heart to forgive me. I'm sorry.
