Voice Recording:



Timezone & Online Times:

My time zone is Central Daylight Time, I am usually online around 5pm - 12am on weekdays, (1 - 8 for Quirky, 2 - 9 for F x n c y, 12pm -7am for Vladimir and Rotary, 5pm - 12am for Thermia, 6pm - 1am for Patillian, 3pm - 10pm for Agro and Sky, 2am - 9am for Catualus, 4am - 11pm for Blackberry, and 23 - 7 for M1ghtymouse. Sorry if I missed anyone.) On weekends I am usually always on whenever I have the chance.


Questions:


Why are you applying?:

I'm applying because I feel like there is still an opening for more people to apply for staff, but too many people just want to apply to have something else to have fun with, and not to actually help and benefit the server. Also, I've noticed that even though Patillian, Thermia, and Agro are very active on the LA jailbreak server, In my opinion, there can never be enough staff until each and every Wonder.tf server can be monitored by an admin nearly 24/7. Also, there usually isn't an admin on after school ends, and that's the time where I'm almost always on during the weekdays. (for weekends I’m usually always on), and I feel like that's the time when some staff members are usually on, but they leave after 30 minutes to 1 hour. That's when usually all the mass freekillers and mic spammers like to get on. I’d also like to support the server even more than I already am, and try to help the staff with any problems they might have, in wonder or anything outside of it.


Do you have any previous experience administrating?:

If you wouldn’t count my server (Jaja’s grotto) as a server I’ve administrated (which I wouldn't), then no, I have never been a staff member on a large server like this, but I am very glad that I have the chance.


Why should we choose you over all other applicants?:

I want you to consider choosing me over other applications that people are posting because I have helped and will help the community in multiple ways, whether its helping explain someone the rules, telling someone where to find the discord/rules, giving reasons why they should consider buying VIP (already got 5 people to buy it), or just all out making friends and being as friendly as I can possibly be and making the server friendlier as a community. (I know that before my chat logs and behavior were very toxic, immature, and even racist at one point but I can 100% positively assure you that I have changed, but I will admit that I still do sometimes curse at others, and the only time I ever do is if it’s me just joking around with someone and kidding with them. If I don’t know that the person I joke around with will 100% know that I’m kidding around with them, I don’t say anything. If I do ever become staff, I want everybody to know that I am also going to take my responsibilities extremely serious, and I will change my attitude to a more serious tone. Another reason is I know the rules extremely well. Not to brag or call out anyone, but sometimes players ask me if what happened in game was legal or not, and sometimes even staff members ask. I am also almost always active in the discord, website, and the Wonder.tf servers, and usually I am the first to notice when a report goes up or when somebody applies.


What personality traits do you posses?:

Some personality traits I possess are Outgoing, Generous, Patient, Caring, Mature, and Passionate.



If you want, please elaborate your chosen traits.:

Outgoing: I am very friendly to others and try to help them as much as I can if an opportunity is present.
Generous: If anyone ever needs any help, I try my very best to explain something to them or help them with their problem in any way, whether it be jailbreak rules, tf2 contracts, or just life in general.
Patient: I am very patient when it comes to listening, assisting, or waiting for something to end (for example I don't complain when the round goes on forever in jailbreak, but I don't like round delaying.)
Caring: If anyone ever is feeling down or just in a bad mood for any apparent reason I will take the time out of my day to listen and just be there for them.
Mature: I assume that I am very mature for my age, I don't act like a 14 - 15 year old and rather I think I act like I am 18-20 years old.
Passionate: I am very passionate about nearly everything about the server, the fun players, respectful and playful staff, and just the server in general.


How would you improve the community?:

I would improve the community in many ways. Firstly, continuing to help anyone in need, whether that be explaining rules, how a trick order worked, if what they died to was legal or not, encouraging them to donate to the server, giving them links to something server related, etc. Secondly, I will invite the friends I make from other games into wonder, encourage them to download TF2 and then explain how jailbreak works, what the rules are, etc. Thirdly, I would support good ideas that could be added to the servers, and let staff know if anything important is happening that they might need to know (new applications being submitted, something bad happening that moderators cannot deal with, etc.) Fourthly, I would improve the servers by the friendly and playful spirit I have, overall making the servers more relaxed and fun.


How have you helped the community up until now?:

I have helped the community up until now in multiple ways, firstly, by answering anyone's questions that they have, for example: "is vip worth it, what more does vip+ give than regular vip, how do you play this, where do I find the rules at, how do I call an admin, what does something mean, if it was a illegal order or not, why they died, etc." Secondly, I have helped encourage multiple people to purchase vip, and encouraged most of my friends from my discord server to join the Wonder.tf discord server and make friends there, and then I've encouraged them to download TF2, try jailbreak and then walked them through on how to play jailbreak, what it's about, all the way up until the point until they can be a warden confidently. (I’ve done this for multiple people.) Thirdly, I have been very active in reporting people, and I do report people whenever I can.
Fourthly, I have been supporting the server incredibly. For example, I have been purchasing vip+ for around 5 months now, I have been server boosting since April 7th, (5 months) and I have donated an unusual to giveaway on the server. (I think I might be the #1 person to donate the most money to wonder.)


Can you work under somebody who is younger than you?:

I can, have worked, and even made friends with multiple people who are younger than me, and a good amount of my friends ages range from 12-14.


Have you applied on any other community in the past month?:

I did apply for staff three times on this server before this one, my most previous app was 71 days ago, my second most recent application was 101 days ago, and my first ever application was 146 days ago. Other than that, no I have not applied for any other community regarding TF2.



I want to thank you for considering my application and I do want to again apologize for my past behavior regarding toxicity, breaking rules, racism; and anything else. I can 100% confidently assure you all that I have changed, and will never do the things I did before again. I really hope that my past mistakes can be forgotten about, and that everybody can move ahead and forgive me for what I have done in the past. Thank you for considering my application to be staff.

  • High activity in game and on the discord
  • Well known by the community
  • Good rule knowledge
I've seen you myself help new players understand the rules and how to play the game. I know you've personally introduced a couple of your friends to the community and helped ease them into jailbreak along with its rules.

Looking at your past applications and thinking about our interactions as I've gotten to know you, you have very obviously matured.

While you do have some bans/guard bans and other warnings, the majority of them happened a few months ago and I believe you genuinely have learned from these mistakes as you seem to truly want to be staff to help the community. I will vote +1

Also, nice little touch adding what your active times are compared to other staff. Easy to see how you'll fit in activity wise.

Aight where to start, you don’t seem to listen to staff by your infractions, you think that when someone says closer to cells it doesn’t mean closest that it does, you told that and then be stubborn about it which isn’t very good if you gonna be a staff member, when these things do happen and you get killed for it you think it’s a free kill and go report them thinking you know all, when you don’t listen to staff you get warned for it and then complain saying it’s unfair warn, if a staff members says enough or stop, it means to stop. Like agro said though, you are known by this community, you are active, you seem to know the rules but some you should recap on. For these reasons though I’m going to vote -1 this could change depending on what other staff are thinking.

Reply to M1ghty:
Hey m1ghty, been a while since we last talked. I'd like to assume that your giving a -1 because you might still be mad at me, but lets assume the best.
Firstly, as I've said before, I like to joke around and try to make people laugh, and if that means getting warned in the community, so be it. I rather see that having a good time with other staff members and then them having a good time (but still having to warn me because it's their duty) is worth a few days being muted. For example, The previous 3 infractions I've had that are called "Not listening to staff" were me and Catualus joking around with eachother. I wouldn't of kept @ing him if I didn't hear him laughing in the voice call. Now either his anger escaping out of his body sounds like a laugh, or we were just genuinely making a little joke with it and having fun. Also, lets talked about the false and lifted ones. The most previous 3 I have an excuse for, and the "not listening to staff • a month ago talking in bots • a month ago not listening to staff • a month ago " punishment was removed. Lets then assume that they are not valid. Therefore speaking, my post previous 6 were invalid. Leaving only 4 left which were all months ago, which including one of them was false, so technically I only have 3 infractions of me actually doing something bad.

"you think that when someone says closer to cells it doesn’t mean closest that it does, you told that and then be stubborn about it which isn’t very good if you gonna be a staff member when these things do happen and you get killed for it you think it’s a free kill and go report them thinking you know all, when you don’t listen to staff you get warned for it and then complain saying it’s unfair warn, if a staff members says enough or stop, it means to stop. " where do I start...? First of all, close does not mean closest. It can be interpreted as any line in the map (depending on the color the warden says) and I'm pretty sure some staff members can back me up on this, so instead of going to the one all the way in bowling, I go to the one in knife pit; so the warden can understand that they need to say closest. If I were to go all the way to the one in bowling, than that would be a dick move, which still, is part of the game so I don't understand how you can use that as a reason to give me a -1. Also, I have never ONCE gotten warned for a "false report" or whatever. Me reporting them freekilling can help them understand that it is still a freekill and that they need to say closest. Also, I usually don't report it when they kill me there, unless they start being cocky about it. I think this might just be a matter of you not understanding it, so if I can explain it any better let me know

Thank you for your vote.

Okay theres alot to un pack here some people dont think your ready where as some people do now I get not everyone is perfect and it would be unfair to expect you to be I personally want to give you a chance you are very active and you know what your doing you know how to take a joke and are not unreasonable which will help you with moderation my only concern is some of you prior punishments some being muted on discord but most of your punishments are not that recent and looking at your previous applications your clearly dedicated and committed dare I say too committed some of your app is copied from your last ones but I believe in the saying if it ain't broke dont fix it your app in general has impressed me and I'd like to see you become staff now keep in mind this vote can change at anytime and I do intend to keep a close eye on you to ensure this vote is genuine but as of right now it will be a +1

I agree with the other staff members. Also, because you received a guardban because you trolled and lied as warden.

When was the guard ban?
It could have been from a while ago when I didn't take it seriously but if it was recent I would like to see it.

Copied a good portion of his last application and by the amount of warns you have on wonder.tf discord, I'll be voting -1
I copied some of my previous application because like other staff told me, there was nothing wrong with it. I still changed almost most of it and made it longer with more details. I don't know what more you could ask of me.

For the warns on the wonder.tf discord, like I said before, they were just me and other people making jokes and having a good time, and alot of them were pardoned and one was even false...

For starters, you said in your app that you're
Outgoing, Generous, Patient, Caring, Mature, and Passionate
.
Unfortunately I have to disagree on some of them:
1. Your first opening sentence of your reply to M1ghty is :
"Hey m1ghty, been a while since we last talked. I'd like to assume that your giving a -1 because you might still be mad at me, but lets assume the best. "
In M1ghty's response there is no mentioning of any personal gripes or conflicts, and with you starting to guilt someone of a vote or accusing someone basing their reply because of personal conflicts doesn't seem that much Mature to me.
2. I'm pretty sure that you still remember the incident of yesterday, and I spent quite a while to "Educate" you of what happened. Personally I was pretty unhappy of how you approached it and the stubbornness.


Reading though all the replies and your app multiple times, and comparing your old app with this one, the similarities are glaring.
You did state in your reply that you didn't change anything because there's no problem with the old one. But to me, this new app isn't about posting a pasted application with "no problems" with it. A new app is about improving your old one and show how you changed in the time being. From what I've seen, you haven't changed, except from the replies.

To finish, my vote will be -1
Good luck <3

For the first one, I didn't mean to come off as rude to m1ghty, and I didn't try to "guilt someone of a vote or accusing someone basing their reply because of personal conflicts" I can admit I shouldn't have said that though, and I should've thought a little before posting it. I was just a little ticked off on how he mentioned the "close" and "closest".

For the 2nd reason, I only ever messaged you because I was confused, and at no point did I ever want to escalate the argument into what it became. I merely just wanted to ask why you guard banned me, and then I had the impression that you were trying to say that Panda wasn't there, and then the argument started.

"You did state in your reply that you didn't change anything because there's no problem with the old one." I copied and pasted my previous application into a google docs, and I removed, changed, and added to it to make it almost completely original. The only reason I copied and pasted it was because I had some good points that needed to stay in the last application, and that it was easier to add to the application when everything is already down and organized.

Thank you for your vote.

Almost the entire first half of the app is copied and pasted from your previous applications, while It's not necessarily a bad thing, It feels kind of lazy to me. Like other staff mentioned, you have a LOT of previous bans;


StaffBan typeReason
GreerServer banfalse reporting
QuirkyJackal Guard banfreekill
IWantBilly Guard banTrolling + Lying
Water Bottle Guard banillegal ff
PandaGamer Guard banteamkill
Big Spy Main Guard banfreekill
*staff name not clear*Guard banMass Freekill
CatualusGuard ban LR deny
Oorii freekilling

And also 11 discord infractions, 6 of which are just about a month ago.

I would downvote if it weren't for your really good activity both on the game servers and discord. You have supported wonder.tf by buying VIP and apparently convincing others to do so too, You also have good rule knowledge.

I'll vote Neutral for now.

Hey saif, nice to see you again. I again, want to state that I tried to avoid the "lazy" assumption as much as I could. I started working on my application 5 days before it was published, and I added and changed things so my application was alot longer. For example, my most previous application was 1,008 words and 5,534 characters long, while this one was 1,428 words and 7,865 characters long. This application is almost 1/3 more than my previous one, and thats ignoring the things I deleted. Only reason I want to say this is even though you gave me a neutral (which I am very pleased about, thank you.), other staff have commented on this.

Also, like I said in a different reply, some of the discord warns were pardoned, some were for a reason that didn't harm anyone in any way, and one was even false. I'd like to go into detail in them, but they are already in another reply. I don't want to add too much to this reply so you don't get bored and stop reading it, which will cause you to skip over the important parts. If you want to look at my reasoning for them, they are in the reply I gave M1ghty, which is the fourth reply on this application.

Ah, my favorite part, the guard bans. Like I've said before, some/most of them are false. (4 debatably 5) Acnologing that, this means that only 3 (debatably 4) were actual real guard bans. The ones that are false are the "freekill by Big Spy Main", "teamkill by PandaGamer", "illegal ff by Water Bottle", and "freekill by QuirkyJackal". If needed, I will go into full description on how they were false on the last and lowest paragraph to stop anymore confusion with them. If you don't care about it, then I want to thank you for your vote, and that I appreciate how you noticed my activity in discord and the game servers, and how I've supported the community.




False Guard Bans Explained: The first one I'm going to be talking about is the "freekill by Big Spy Main" this one was just a mere accident where I was trying to kill someone as sniper but as I shot, he moved and I accidentally freekilled another person. I immediately killbinded and asked a staff member to respawn the person that was killed. He knew I freekilled and during this period, he still gave out punishments for things even if they were accidental. This was later discussed, and was decided false. The 2nd guard ban is "teamkill by PandaGamer" It was an accidental teamkill that was pardoned. Heres the clip:
The 3rd Guard ban is "illegal ff by WaterBottle" I wanted to do cell wars so I asked a staff member if I could, they said they didn't know. I asked guards, and most said yes. When I turned on ff, the staff member said it was illegal ff and that he was gonna guard ban me. I asked if they had proof ff was turned on 2 rounds ago, they said they had evidence but didn't need it to show me. When I told an admin about it, the staff member denied giving them the evidence and so it was once again, removed. (also, some staff members have informed me that you can't check if ff was turned on 2 rounds ago in the logs or whatever.) The 4th and final one is "freekill by QuirkyJackal" This one Quirky forgot that warden cannot bait because "they weren't there for when vlad changed the rules". I discussed this with vlad, and he removed it. I would include the clip, but I am not at my computer at my house right now. I will be on wednesday though. To avoid calling out any staff members, I tried my best to not include any of their names and not include the videos with them talking in it.

Hey Jaja,

You've definitely matured greatly from when I first met you and you are very active. I just feel like you should've waited longer before re-applying. The guard bans and your chat logs don't really matter to me to be honest, but I just can't see you as a staff member yet.

You're a stubborn individual which isn't really the best quality for staff. You also argued with Blackberry over a single guard ban which really didn't matter.


My Vote: -1
If you can re-apply later on, my vote may differ, but right now my vote is going to stay -1.

Voting : Neutral

Reason being that you were able to pull an order over me (still miffed about that trick to be sure), showing your superb degree in jailbreak knowledge.
On the counter side, the above statements about your demeanor are a hard hitter as your personal traits will factor into your staff etiquette and conduct into the long run of taking care of the community.

Not saying I am the exact same gleeful ball of joyful pats and praise that I was from my first application till this very day (college level labs and lectures tends to dull the senses after all) I can say that your attitude and personality can expand into diffrent paths once you become staff and the time spent as one. Quoting some proverb "it depends on which WOLF you feed".

I am really leaning on voting +1 so if you can get a positive swing on your application then you shall get the +1 from me for sure!
Current score is -4 so keep at it.

*provides a firm pat of goodness and luck*

Hey Sky, I’m really sorry on how long it took me to reply to you. Long story short, I’ve been buried in homework and my dad hasn’t been too happy with me.

I can’t argue or say anything with everything you said except for I agree, my personal traits could lead into some problems in the future if I ever do become a staff member, and I will try my best to control them and not let them stray into negatively impacting the community. (Sorry if it looks weird, I’m replying on phone.)

*gratefully accepts the pat and hopes it’s enough luck*
