Graveyard Raid Bans: 
After further review, it has been decided that graveyard raid bans will be reduced to 6 hours instead of the former 24. This change was due to a general feeling of harshness towards newer players that have received this previous ban. Keep in mind that if this offense is committed several times. just like any other punishment, the time will gradually be lengthened.

  Raise Minimum Players Needed For Separate Classes
Posted by: Pierre Saint - 10 hours ago - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (1)

**DISCLAIMER: https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=6095

(1) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - Yes

(2) What is your suggestion? - 
Raise the minimum players online to have 1 combined class from 45 to 50/55

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - 
When there are only 50 players on, it is often hard to find two teachers to properly teach both classes. I think that raising the minimum players to have separate classes would make a big difference and solve the issue of having like 3 people in class and no teacher. Sometimes even if there's a teacher maybe there's no prefect for that class.

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - 
The only one I can think of is V.I.P's not being able to properly utilize their ability to get homework almost every period when a spell class shows up.

Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:1:17186722

(1.) Do you agree to and accept the Volunteer Staff Application Terms & Conditions? If so, please answer with "Yes, I do agree and accept these terms and conditions." - Yes, I do agree and accept these terms and conditions.

(1a) What is your most recent or commonly known in-game name or alias? - Simon Linden-Blackfyre and Skrrt Cobain.

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be at least 7th year to apply.) - 7th year Master Prestige

(2.) In which time zone do you reside? - CET

(2a) Please provide the hours of the day that you are the most active on the Hogwarts RP server according to CST (Chicago, US), so the managers and staff know when they can expect to see you. - It really depends what my work schedule looks like. Between 9AM - 3PM if I'm working mornings and 5PM - 10PM if I'm working night.

(3.) What is your age? - 24

(4.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our Hogwarts RP server and how did you initially discover it? - Friend sent me a youtube in January 2018 and been a member of the community since then.

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? - I enjoy playing on the server and I'm more and more active for everyday that goes.
(4b) Do you understand that you can be let go at any time for excessive inactivity at our discretion? - Of course

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

(5a) When listing the 10 basic rules, please explain what they each mean to convey to us that you understand and comprehend them wholly.
List Rules below:
1:No Fail RP: Dont do anything that would go against the RP of the job you're playing. For example someone playing as the Herbology teacher talking about smoking gillyweed and a HoM teacher having a rap battle in their class would be fail RP.

2: Disrespectful, hateful, and offensive behavior or speech towards others is not allowed: Dont be disrespectful to other people, dont be using derogatory terms, just be a decent human being. Peeves can bend this rule a little bit and say disrespectful things to other players within RP, but should also never go too far and absolutely never use derogatory terms.

3: No Random DeathMatch (RDM): Dont attack or kill other players without a valid RP reason. A student killing a prefect or a snatcher killing Voldemort is two examples of RDM.

4: Obey Staff and Roleplay leaders: Always obey your RP leaders. If Voldemort is telling you as a snatcher to only snatch Hufflepuffs you better listen to him. In some cases their might be instances where your RP leader is telling you to do something that would break a server rule. Then there is an exeption and you can report that to the server staff. Obey Staff part is explanatory. Listen to staff.

5: No massive free spelling: Usually this only applies to damaging spells, which means that if a someone is free spelling those types of spells they might get kicked or banned for it. Non-damaging is often solved within RP (Prefect sending naughty students to detention). But in some cases where that goes to far a staff member might have to step in.

6: No Metagaming: Dont use outside information to get an edge during RP. For example, dont tell your friend in discord that youre getting snatched and make him swoop in and save you or call out a unrevealed snatcher.

7: No Microphone/Chat spam: Don't make obnoxious sound or play music through your mic. There is cases where this can be allowed, like if a staff gives you permission to play some music. But the song should never have anything in it that would break rule 2. Chat spam part is the same, dont flood any of the chats with unecessary spam.

8: Owlpost is for significant roleplay purposes only: Only use Owlpost for RP. For example you may use it to claim the QP, tell the server that PTS is active in a classroom or to sell a snatch. Use the OOC if you want tell everyone that a party at Hagrid is occuring.

9: No ERP (Erotic Roleplay): This server for all ages, so dont do anything sexual with other yourself or other players in either voice or chat. No one wants that.

10: Do not avoid the AFK system or map exploit: Dont create macros to keep yourself from logging out to farm experience. If you find a exploit in the map, dont use it and tell staff about it.

(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) - Sup, name is Simon and I'm just your regular swedish guy that likes sport, beer and video games. Used to be staff here around 2 years ago, but had to resign because of lack of time. I'm back now and would love to be back on the team so I could help out on the server again.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - Probably my vocabulary. English isnt my native tongue so usually I use non-"professional" words as fillers when I'm talking.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - The same thing I answered in the question above.

(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 used to be staff before so I know quite a lot about staffing already. I have also always had the mindset that staff is here to help players and make their experience on the server as fun as possible. I was never the staff member that was quick to ban someone, since I see that as the last solution. 

(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) - Only staffed here before

(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). - No

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? - Equally important. Without staff the server would be literally utter chaos, but without any players there would not be a playerbase.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) - Patience 10: As I said earlier, this is one of my strong suits. 
Response 10: At least when I was staff before I was really quick at responding to calls.
Approachability  8: I'm always trying to be easy to approach and talk to, but sometimes I'm just to much in my own world.

(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? - Try to get ahold of an admin or higher up and see if they can help me with the situation. If there is no one around, I can always see if any other moderator is online to help me. If neither, then I'll try with the best of my ability to make it as fair as possible.

(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

(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) - https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=2720 Accepted, but resigned because of lack of time.

EDIT: PS: I know I came back not that long ago, but I thought why not make an application now, worst case its just going to be open a longer time.

Star Ban appeal
Posted by: Captain Planet - 01-18-2021, 06:15 PM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (5)

(1) What is your in-game name? - Chad Bigcock

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - STEAM_0:1:40174393

(3) What is the name of Admin/Staff who banned you? - @Gwendolyn Rose Gwendolyn Rose 

(4) How long were you banned for? - 1 week 2 days 

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? -  no

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? - no

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) -
 Mass RDM-
It was my first day getting vermilious (i think that's what its called, the 20 damage one) and people in my class tired it out on each other in diels because we wanted to see how it worked.
I also used it as self defence against multiple cats that attacked me, an escaped prisoner who stabbed me, dark wizards during a attack (some students may have got hit by friendly fire).
Also I killed a student in the duelling class and got sent to detention when I thought if you were on the duelling arena you couldn't be killed, teacher did not explain that to me.
I also killed someone who was on 20 hp because i felt the urge to (only real rdm).
So if someone looked at all these deaths they could assume mass RDM but it wasn't as bad as it looked. 
I'm sorry for over using  the spell but it was my first time getting it.


(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? -  Detention? yes,  2 week ban? no 

(9) Why should you be unbanned? - Because I am sorry for over using the spell, it was my first day having it.

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? - Yes

(11) Provide a Screenshot of the message that appears when you try to join the server: -
