List Rules below:
1: No Fail Rp - No Rail Rp (No Fail Roleplay) is breaking the expectations of your roleplay job e.g. Not listening to Teachers as a student for they are your Roleplay leaders and Committing Suicide.

4: Obey Staff & RP Leaders - Follow the indications of staff, and obey your roleplay leaders- Obeying Staff is a main key of a healthy server and Obeying The hierarchy of your position is key for Roleplay. You can find a job description and see if you have an RP leader by pressing f4 and reading the description of your current job.

(6.) Tell us a little about yourself and why you would like to be accepted for a volunteer staffing position on SBS. (100 words or less) -
I try to be a kind person and if anyone has a problem with me, I will try and sort it out. I am also great at assessing situations and coming to reasonable acceptations like around the server I have helped people with problems they have had with other players because at the end of the day I just want everyone to have fun. I would really enjoy being staff to help out around the server.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
My imagination, I feel like I have a really narrow mind and i feel the need to work on that.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
I think I need to make a focus on my delivery with some things but that will just become good with practice.

(8.) How would having you on our volunteer staff team benefit our server and what qualities set you apart from the rest of the applicants? -  
I'm in a timezone that other staff arent on and i feel like the times that i am on staff is really needed. I don't really have any beef with anyone on the server so i am not biased.

(9.) Have you ever previously maintained a game server staffing position, or currently are, on any other Garry's Mod servers? If so, which ones, and in which staffing positions? (List them if possible) - 
No, I have not.

(10.) Have you ever previously been banned on any Garry's Mod or SBS servers? If yes, then please list approximately when, how long, and the reasoning(s). - 
3rd of May for RDM and it was a 1 month ban but got deducted as I apologised.

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? - 
Really the players because its staffs' job to look for any rules getting broken, making sure the server is happy and everyone's having fun also making sure the server is a safe place for all the old and new players to enjoy and come back to.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) - 
I would give myself a 8/10 because of the fact that if there are a lot of reports coming the response time is obviously going to be long but I will make sure to get everything done.

(13.) If you find yourself in a 'staff-sit' where you're unsure of how to fairly distribute punishment and or handle the situation or discrepancy at hand, what do you do? - 
I would look at the offence (what was said, how many times something happened) and decide on the punishment and if I can't decide then ill seek help from other staff members and come to a decision.

(14.) You both understand and realise, that by applying for a volunteer staffing position on the server, you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to role-play and or socialise freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues and or volunteer staff position tasks at hand no matter the situation and to the best of your abilities? - 
Yes, I understand and agree to leave anything that I am doing and go handle with any server related issues.

(15.) If applicable, please provide a list of all your previous volunteer staff applications, provide a link to them if possible, and list any reasons why they may have been locked.

Posted by: Garbo - Yesterday, 06:14 PM - Forum: Staff Reports - Replies (21)

(1) What is your name? - Garbo

(2) What is their name? - Ryte

(3) What is their SteamID? -  STEAM_0:1:56247584

(4) What did they do wrong? - Banned me for coming back at him with an insult after he tried to come at me. Also banned for something that happened prior after which I stopped.

(5) What Rank are they? (Find this here) - GM

(6) Evidence. (Must be provided: BAN MESSAGES ARE NOT EVIDENCE) -

https://imgur.com/a/0EuKuTV

Video of the sit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3wShUf8zKU
Had to mute second half because of discord. I only type in game though so you can see what I said and hear what he said.

Console log transcript from after I got banned. Again, I'm not sure why some of it is missing.
https://1drv.ms/w/s!AkLUN1nXkAP0hIV1SZjf...w?e=E6YhXm

More info: So we were using the !thetime command and I used it twice and got pulled and told to stop. Fair enough. I did. I then made the mistake of asking if someone had the time and got kicked for inciting people to chatspam. So when I came back I stopped asking for the time in /ooc. I know I called Ariel big nose a few times in local, as well as saying some stuff about Ryte, but no one other than some chill people around us saw it. That could have been the staff dis he meant but he didn't specify nor did he ask me about it. Never in /ooc though. Then I said something along the lines of "lets spam some music 14 times" and "whoever wins the game is clearly scripting" which someone didn't like.
After that I was just chilling at rp door and see what Ryte said in /ooc about where are my parents and why am I attention seeking.
I said that since we're gonna dis each other that I can say this and I said, "(OOC) Garbo Mcdootbagatoosh Enos: if we gonna dis i can ask if your 10head is really as big as your ego?

(OOC) Garbo Mcdootbagatoosh Enos: since we dising"


Then I got pulled after some time and he said he's gonna see how long I'm getting banned for and now we're here. Obvious abuse of power here since he felt he wanted to start in /ooc when I never said his name in my comments in /ooc. He felt the need to come at me for some reason and directly said my name, and when I come back at him he got mad and banned for it.

edit: also, I'm not sure what "logs" means. If he meant my past, that was back then. I've been good since then and I feel he's looking for reasons to make a justified ban to cover his ass.
another edit: I'm sure Ryte will have video evidence of the sit that he's willing to share

edit 1500: i do have a video of the sit and most of console logs I had. For some reason some of the console logs are gone. It could've been after my kick or something idk

Sorry this is all over the place I can't write well :(

How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - for the most part i'm a one server kind of person seeing as i don't have any other servers at the moment i can say on certain servers i've put well over 4 weeks of time onto it on staff off staff as a player. i usually stick around.

(4b) Do you understand that you can be let go at any time for excessive inactivity at our discretion? -
Absolutely, although i haven't been expressly removed from staff i know i've done my fair share of fuckups before i understand that my services my be retired at any moment.

(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with but also enforce the rules of the server when necessary? -
Yes.

(5a) please list and explain the main 7 server rules so we know you understand and comprehend them fully.

List Rules below

Rule 1 - No FailRP.
Rule 2 - Be Respectful.
Rule 3 - No RDM.
Rule 4 -  Listen to staff and RP leaders.
Rule 5 -  No Meta-Gaming
Rule 6 -  No Micspam or Chatspam
Rule 7 - No Cheating or Exploiting

(6.) Tell us a little about yourself and why you would like to be accepted for a volunteer staffing position on SBS. -
Hi. i'm Ursa as you probably know. i am a long time Gmod veteran and player since it was my second game that i ever bought i've been through so many ages of gmod servers and just recently got into more of staffing role. i am well versed in general RP from my times in other roleplay communities like, Revolutionary war RP, and FalloutRP. being the 2 i have been apart of, i'm really excited to help bring back SBS as when i first joined and was trained by Major dusk it was a really layed back and chill experience for a server, not just some person explaining the same dumb rules over and over again, thanks for reading this.

(7.) In your opinion, what do you need to improve on the most? (qualities, skill sets) -
its hard to be self-analyzing however, i've had troubles with bouts of chaotic behavior usually when i get home from a long ass day and just wanna have some fun and choose the wrong place to do it break a bunch of server rules and get punished. and its something i have done before so i might not be on when that is the case.

(8.) How would having you on the Halo staff team benefit the server and what qualities set you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
i have gained a lot of experience with story writing and campaign making from playing DND i want to plan out events more practically and have a sort of flow going within my events at least, along with that  i have tons more ideas for the staff team and server that could help us get more players and revive the server to a degree but i will keep these to myself.

(9.) Have you ever previously maintained a game server staffing position, or currently are, on any other Garry's Mod servers? If so, which ones, and in which staffing positions? (List them if possible) -
certainly i have been apart of only a few staffing positions but i will list them below with a timeline.
Revival (not that one) Revolutionary RP Moderator-Temp Admin, 1-2 weeks (server died).
NOM Fallout RP V2 GM->Super Admin. over around 3 months.
NOM Fallout RP V3 Super Admin, 2 weeks (its a little strange sounding but this was a gap of around half a year)

(10.) Have you ever previously been banned on any Garry's Mod or SBS servers? If yes, then please list approximately when, how long, and the reasoning(s). -
i can remember only a few bans but i haven't been banned on SBS only kicked for in my opinion for over enforcement of a rule. but to be honest its been a long time since i've been banned and i can't really remember which servers cause they were Dark RPs. 
(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players more important and why? - Players and staff hold equal place because of a simple montra. without players there can be no server. and without staff there can be no order. so without a balance of care for both sides no server can thrive. happy players happy server.

(12) Please list and rate your skills out of 10 (EX patience, response time, leadership, activity, etc.) - 7 no one can be perfect.

(13.) On a scale from 1 to 10, how familiar are you with Garry's Mod's default tools, context menus, and utility menus? -  7.

(14.) Please provide us with at least two detailed examples of events that you would orchestrate and how you would proceed with organizing, operating, and constructing them. - i will start out with an idea that came to me when i first started writing this

Event Idea #1: Supply Shortage
within this event the players will be assigned to assist in an upcoming assault on a planet controlled by either covenant or innies which either fits better and will be apart of a side force from the main attack as a "diversionary" attack because of intel saying that side of the defenses would be weaker the players would be only gifted little supplies having to deal with,
#1 No ammo other than the ammo to start off with.
#2 No Flying Vehicles.
#3 1 Transport hog with manual transmission
to add to this the intel surrounding this whole assault is faulty the main force is attacking the weakest part of the innie/covenant defenses while our troopers have to make due with terrible supplies while having to fight a much stronger enemy within this they can make multiple choices within the event which i will try and layout some in the briefing but some will be revealed to them while they play

Option A
Reinforcements.
i will tell the players during debriefing that behind our lines we have a reserve force of some vehicles which are being held back for the main assault along with artillery cannons so i will give whoever is leading a radio and tell them that they can use it to call in extra support if necessary but it will have to be run up the chain of command aka having it take time.

Option B
Artillery Computer
The Covenant/Innies also have artillery so on the map they players can find a rangfinder which they could use to bomb the enemy with their own explosives. Which also means until they deal with it they will be getting bombed.

Option C

Robbery
this is a possible option i might throw in to add some spice in this i will place a NPC civilian who owns a warthog who will not sell it to them but they could try and steal it if they would so choose.

Hidden Objective:
the players will also have the side option of Killing/capturing the enemy commander who will be attempting to escape. during the event i will place a radio somewhere which they can tap into to hear about the commanders evac.

Main objective: Survive and attempt to win against a stronger force.

Event idea #2: Caught in the balance

This event would take place in a urban center with the marines being sent into evac the population but the mayor has not responded to any communications the marines would only be in contact with the Police chief of the city until reaching the city. the chief of the police would be a player who i would give a set of objectives he can complete to progress towards innies entering the city because the police chief would be against resistance against the Innies due to the heavy civilian lose expected which would force the marines out. along with this the mayor would need assistance fixing the town PA and radio system which is broken in 3 parts of the city when this is done the evacuation can be sounded and all civilians will need to be evaced at a point in the city determined by the players. in this the police chief would have the choice of assisting the innies or the marines (decided on based on the amount of objectives he completes or player choice) after the civilians are evaced the marines would have to wait for their transport to arrive holding off innies until evacced.


(15.) Do you have any prior experience using ULX administrative system or sandbox building on Garry's Mod? - Yes.

(16.) You both understand and realize, that by applying for a volunteer staffing position on the server, you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to role-play and or socialize freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues and or volunteer staff position tasks at hand no matter the situation and to the best of your abilities? - Yes.

(17.) Please provide a list of all previous volunteer staff applications, provide a link to them if possible, and list any reasons why they may have been locked. If they were previously accepted, please provide a short explanation of why you are no longer volunteer staff at the time of this application. (Disregard if this is your first application) - N/A

Hello there! I've been pretty inactive within this community for a while now due to personal reasons and just being focused on other things. But yeah I will be taking my leave from the community, it was very fun while it lasted. Teaching the students of hogwarts about food, and terrorizing students as Vietnam Warrior Filch lmao. 

I've met some great people and had some hilarious interactions whilst being apart of this community and I certainly wont forget my time here. A big thank you is owed to the people that made my time here a pleasure, I very much appreciate you all. And people are always welcome to drop me a message on steam I'm always up for playing some games.

Hogsmeade Map Progress and Server Manager Updates

[Image: giphy.gif]

For reading ambience:





Hello everyone.

With today's announcement, we are going to be covering two different topics. The reasoning for this, is mostly due to the fact that we would like to still keep you updated with the progress of the Hogsmeade map, though we don't have much to 'visually' share with you this time around. A lot of progress has been made to the finish, however, we don't believe it's quite enough worth sharing images of. There are a lot more technical things that have been completed since the last update, so we'll go over those here. Additionally, as you may or may not have known, Michael, our previous Hogwarts RP server manager has resigned. Applications for the manager position have been open for about two weeks as previously announced by our Staff Manager, Justin, and they'll stay open for just a bit longer. Let's dive into all the details regarding both of these important subjects now.

To kick things off, let's talk Hogsmeade. Since the previous update, a plethora of (what I believe most of you would find truthfully boring) optimizations, fixes, and otherwise have been completed. Additionally, skybox models for all the landmarks and buildings had to be created for optimization purposes, which took up a large amount of the time since the last update. With the map being very open world in comparison to Hogwarts, maintaining playable framerates is a large challenge. Our level designer has had to go a bit above and beyond to optimize the map to the absolute best instance possible. To give a perspective of how close we are, though, all that's left is the remaining flora, since most has been added, soundscapes, and some finishing touches. With that said, we will be saving the rest of what is to be seen for the maps actual release. This means the next announcement regarding Hogsmeade will be for the maps first alpha release on the live server, and no further development progress updates will be given.

Moving on to the next subject, the Hogwarts RP Server Manager position. I'd like to start off by thanking Michael for his time here. I do see and understand that he has received a lot of scrutiny for inactivity, but a lot of what Michael did during his tenure as server manager happened behind the scenes. I can say with full confidence that the server would be and would have been in a much worse place, a long time ago, if it had not been for Michael. Any sort of help that I and SBS can receive voluntarily, is a blessing, as one might say. This goes for any staff member of any level, but especially one with such responsibilities. I am personally grateful for his help and his time here, even if that didn't entail much direct activity on the server itself. An argument that I've seen a few times and that might be used against this again, is that the server could be in an even better place had someone else been in the position with more activity, but the truth is, it's mostly speculation, as it always has been with previous managers. Michael's ability to resolve a lot of the situations thrown at him and do what the role allows given the resources he had and that I can give him or any server manager, which are very limited in the first place, were of standard and a great benefit to the community. Outside of the topic of inactivity, it's a tough role to fill, and every decision you make or action you take (or don't) will be scrutinized. You have to be willing to take the flack for being wrong, even if you feel that you really aren't, be prepared to make mistakes and learn from them, and simply do the best you can. With that said, I do believe that any and all of the things that the community has found to have been flaws of his, can be used as an example and improved on by whoever the new manager will be. I would suggest that the new manager soaks in and makes an honest attempt to improve on these concerns that have been voiced thus far on all of the recent applications. We can all always do more, and be better, so we're aiming to find someone that can or is willing. Adding to all of this, I will say that, there has never been a time in all the years of SBS, that we've had so many, of what I would believe to be, qualified individuals to take on a manager role, especially one as a server manager. Not to mention having so many of said individuals actually apply for such a position at the same time. In this past, we've mostly had to take 'leaps of faith' in someone, out of the very few choices we ever had at any given time, who we hoped could uphold the position to an acceptable standard. Now, virtually every applicant that's applied so far seems to have qualities that could make them a great server manager. They are also all generally very different, which will absolutely complicate the selection process. This will be the toughest decision I've had to make for a manager role ever, and frankly, I think that's a good thing. A very good thing. I believe that speaks volumes about the current staff team that we have on Hogwarts RP. We certainly have numerous individuals on the team, that have also applied, that I believe have the ability to make the server a great and even better place to play.

Final Details

As for Hogsmeade, I will leave you with another SOON! Hopefully the last one. *wink* As for the Hogwarts RP server manager role, we will be closing applications on Sunday, July 25th at 11:59 PM CST. A week or two will be allowed after applications close to begin the selection process and select a new manager in that timeframe. It is absolutely imperative that you are leaving feedback on all the current applications, as the feedback is being considered heavily for the new manager. With how tough the decision is already, just from a base viewpoint with no feedback at all, your feedback is going to be crucial during this selection process. Finally, if you're looking to apply yourself, you can find more information here. You have until the aforementioned date to post your application. If you haven't yet seen who's applied, and you'd like to leave some feedback of your own, you can find all of the current and any future applications here. To do something a little different this time around, we will allow feedback to continue on these applications even after they close, and we might even publicly ask some more glaring questions on the applications based on feedback or any concerns that we have, and see how the community reacts to their answers.

(6.) Tell us a little about yourself and why you would like to be accepted for a volunteer staffing position on SBS. (100 words or less) -
I have always wanted to be a moderator, but I have never found the right server that I wanted to stay on, so I never applied. Recently there have been a lot of people breaking rules when I joined in the morning but no staff was on to take care of them. I believe I would be able to help during those times. I also applied for mock trials to gain knowledge about staff expectations.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I am not always as strict as I should be, I'm too friendly with people.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
One of the skills I would like to work on the most is time management. I would like to try to use my time in a more productive and constructive manner, and make it more useful for others if I can.

(8.) How would having you on our volunteer staff team benefit our server and what qualities set you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
I believe I would be beneficial to the server because I can play long stretches of time during the day, and would like to help keep the server fun for all players. Something that sets me apart is that I'm willing to do whatever is asked of me, and I respect the authority given.

(9.) Have you ever previously maintained a game server staffing position, or currently are, on any other Garry's Mod servers? If so, which ones, and in which staffing positions? (List them if possible) -
No, I have not.

(10.) Have you ever previously been banned on any Garry's Mod or SBS servers? If yes, then please list approximately when, how long, and the reasoning(s). -
Yes, I have.
I was banned on the 9th of June 2021 for a week due to bug exploiting.

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? -
Both are important because we need both to make up the server, and our players are the ones who keep our server running, and the community growing. Staff are those who keep the order and peace to keep the server fun for everyone.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -
I would rate myself about 8.5/10 because no one is perfect, but I'm a very patient person, I believe in being fair and not taking sides. I believe that I am very reliable and able to be there when needed.

(13.) If you find yourself in a 'staff-sit' where you're unsure of how to fairly distribute punishment and or handle the situation or discrepancy at hand, what do you do? -
I would call another staff member, preferably with more experience than I, in hopes to have the situation dealt with in the most appropiate manner. And once the sit is completed, I would try to figure out what to do for the next time that situation could occur.

(14.) You both understand and realize, that by applying for a volunteer staffing position on the server, you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to role-play and or socialize freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues and or volunteer staff position tasks at hand no matter the situation and to the best of your abilities? -
Yes, I understand.

(15.) If applicable, please provide a list of all your previous volunteer staff applications, provide a link to them if possible, and list any reasons why they may have been locked. If they were previously accepted, please provide a short explanation of why you are no longer volunteer staff at the time of this application. (Disregard if this is your first application) -
