  Diyor Ridda ban appeal
Posted by: Calamity Enthusiast - 10-22-2021, 06:03 PM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (10)

(1) What is your in-game name? - Diyor Ridda

(2) What is your steam ID (including any banned alt accounts)? - STEAM_0:0:26863512

(3) What is the name of Admin/Staff who banned you? - Hannie Vesper

(4) How long were you banned for? - 3 weeks

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? - Yes, once

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? - Yes

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) -  I was attending the potion class and was then sent to detention for breaking PTS. Upon arriving to detention, there were a group of people who all had different variants of the name Tyrone who were pretending to be black people. So me, in my drunken brilliance, decided to greet them with ''sup crackers''. I was then swiftly banned.

(8) Do you think you deserved the ban? - Yes

(9) Why should you be unbanned? - I sincerely didn't think the word cracker fell under the hatespeech rule considering the current social stigma around that kind of talk. I know it sounds stupid in hindsight (especially considering I've been warned and banned for this recently) but I figured that if the word wasn't on the slur-list in the admin room, it wouldn't lead to the same repercussions. I'm not gonna bullshit any of you ik I mess around alot on the server but I always try my best to stay within the boundaries of the rules and offending/hurting people is not something that I derive pleasure from. So yeah, now I understand that I should avoid any kind of terminology associated with ethnicity and/or race even if my intentions are not nefarious. I'd also like to mention that I'm from Quebec and this isn't the first time that my language barrier has gotten me into trouble.
I gotta give you guys props though since theres alot of servers that have double-standards when it comes to this and I'm glad to see that the rule is unbiased on all levels.

(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: - https://i.imgur.com/8UeYLAX.png


Thanks.

Hi!

This is my first time playing since maybe mid summer, and I logged in to discover all of my learned spells were lost. Not sure if there was a wipe of some sort or if I just bugged.

Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:1:186275297

(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 name and or alias are you most commonly known as within the SBS community?
Satia Aeternalis
 
(1b.) What is your age?
21

(2.) Which volunteer community staff position is your application for?
Hogwarts Staff Manager
 
(3.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our community and how did you initially discover it?
I joined the community in roughly December 2017. I don't really remember how I discovered it since it was so long ago, probably through twitch or youtube!
 
(4.) Community staff are held to a much higher standard both in general and with activity when compared to standard game server staff. In this case, do you understand that you can be let go at any time for excessive inactivity at our discretion? -
Yes, I absolutely understand.

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -
I have been on the staff team for a long time, and I have always been consistently active and available unless I have communicated otherwise. I am on at some point most evenings around 7:30-9:30 CST, and have been consistently for a long time. 
That being said, this week is midterm week for me so I haven't been around as much this week (which is also why this application was not posted sooner.) My schedule will return to normal shortly and I look forward to it!
 
(5.) 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) -
Most of you will know me as Satia. I am a university student majoring in Chemistry. I would like to step up to this position because I genuinely enjoy staffing and interacting with others. I have lots of ideas and I would love to help create a closer staff team, and narrow the divide between the staff team and the community. To keep it short and simple, I'd like to help, and I once again feel capable of doing so.

(6.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I would like to improve my ability to handle conflict. I've come a long ways on this, and have previous experience with it, but I feel that a staff manager (or anyone in any position where that's part of the job description) should always strive to find the most equitable solution. I think that no matter how much experience you have, the best solution is always clearest in hindsight, and that I will always have more to learn.

(6a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
To be completely honest, I would argue that the relatively narrow time frame I am available (at least on server) is probably the weakest point of my application. So as for skill set, maybe time management? While I am on the server pretty much every day, it's mostly at the same time due to my school and work schedule, which can be rather inflexible. This unfortunately means that I do not often get to see staff or players who play primarily in other time zones, and I would like to try to change this. 

(7.) How would having you on our volunteer staff team benefit our community and what qualities set you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
I think the most important thing is having a staff manager who truly cares about the community, and the team. I can safely say that I care about both, and I want to see the server and the community continue to thrive for a long time. Hogwarts was an escape for me in a time when I really needed one, and I would like that escape to be present for others in the future. 

For those who might not know, I was the Hogwarts staff manager for almost a year. I stepped down in (around) September of 2019, for reasons I will discuss in that particular question. I have experience with managing the staff team as well as dealing with staff issues. I accept that if I do get the position, it will be a learning curve all over again. I feel that I am very good at critical thinking and problem solving, and at communicating with others. I am not afraid to reach out and ask for help if I need it. In my opinion, communication is critical.  

It's important for the team and the community to be able to trust in the staff manager. While I already trust the team, and some of them may already trust me as a staff manager, should I get the position I am willing and ready to work towards establishing that trust with each member of the team. Trust is, after all, a two way street.

I understand that everyone makes mistakes. I am certainly not perfect, and I am always grateful when someone points out how I might have been able to do something better. I think I'm approachable and easy to bring problems to, even if they're about me. Trying to understand the circumstances surrounding something and figure out not just exactly what happened but why, is something that is very important to me. When people complain, it's often for a reason.

This next paragraph is directly from my previous application, as I think this belief is crucial for anyone in a leadership position:
My philosophy on leadership is as follows: a leader is just a part of the team. An integral part, sure, but at the end of they day, they’re no better than anyone else. A leader should be willing to do anything they ask their team to do. A team depends on the leader, yes, but the leader should also depend on their team. They learn from each other. The most important thing about any team is that it’s made clear upfront that everyone is equal - all that differs is people’s responsibilities. Asking for help is never a bad thing, no matter who asks. A leader should always put their pride aside if necessary to get the help they need to do the best they can. 
 
(8.) 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) -
I have been a staff member on Hogwarts RP since May 2018.

(9) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -
Patience - 9/10
I believe I am pretty patient. In fact I’d be willing to argue I can be too patient at times.
Critical thinking - 8/10
I have experience with problem solving and thinking critically to find a solution. I am not always the quickest person to the solution, but I do find one I am comfortable with after carefully reviewing all different facets of the issue at hand.
Communication - 8/10
Being able to communicate is very very important. I feel I almost always communicate my reasons for things.
Empathy - 9/10
I feel like I’m pretty good at looking at things from the point of view of someone else and trying to understand why they did what they did.
Approachability - 9/10 
It’s kind of hard for me to rate this one, but I feel that I am friendly and easy to talk to if needed.
Leadership - 8/10
I truly feel this is something I am very good at. That being said there is always something new to learn and leadership style needs to change depending on the members of the team.
Confidence - 7/10
This is something I still struggle with and likely always will. As a result of this, sometimes I can be a little slow to make decisions.
Response time - 6/10
I am usually available within 2-3 hours. That being said, I work in a lab with biohazards which means I am not able to have technology in the lab. That means there are several times over the week where I will not be available at all for 3-5 hours. I am however almost always available in the evenings.
Team work - 8/10
I believe that a leader is just part of the team and would not hesitate to support others or reach out for support if needed.

(10.) Provide a couple of examples of situations or issues you may encounter and how you would handle them in the position you are applying for -
Well, I think the first thing I would do in absolutely every situation is simply to communicate. By talking with the people involved with the situation in question, I can gain a better understanding of whether there was an issue or not, and if there was, what went wrong, why it went wrong, how it can be fixed, and how it can be prevented in the future. It’s impossible for me to predict exactly what will happen, but I feel as though there are three main categories.

If a community member brings concerns about a staff member to me without evidence, I would take into account what they had to say and keep an eye out for these issues to see if I could spot them in the future. I would also discuss them with the staff member in question as long as I could do so without identifying the community member, or if the community member was ok with being identified.

If a valid staff report is made, the severity of the response would depend on the severity of the issue and the staff member’s previous history. Obviously there are some things that do not deserve a warning (such as issues that would be reported in the severe reports section) and that would result in further action than simply being demoted. Assuming the staff member has simply done something that they shouldn’t have, like getting into arguments in OOC or in public discords, this would likely result in a warning the first time. After that first time, their history would be taken into account when dealing with the situation. If the staff member has made a mistake, for example either by enforcing (or not enforcing) a rule, they would be corrected and a discussion would be had with the rest of the team to ensure that everyone is on the same page about that rule.  If the staff member has maliciously abused their staff powers, such as issuing random bans, this would result in a demotion.

I strongly encourage honesty, and believe in rewarding it, so in many of these cases if the staff member was to come forward (before the community member provided evidence, and as long as they didn't know that evidence was going to be provided) that would be taken into account (again, obviously not for very serious issues, honesty cannot make up for everything)

The most difficult to deal with of these categories is conflict within the staff team, where one staff member is reporting another. Hopefully, one of them will have evidence of what happened, and then this can be dealt with as a staff report from a community member would be. If they lie about what happened, they know what they did was wrong and are trying to avoid consequences, and this would factor into my response. Staff members are trusted members of the community, so if there was a conflict without evidence and it wasn’t a simple misunderstanding, it would be difficult to resolve, as technically both of them do not need to provide evidence. That being said, I would deal with this by keeping an eye on both staff members and trying to see if there were any other staff members around at the time who may have alternative perspectives. 

 
(11.) 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) -
My application for moderator is on the old forums.
My previous application for Staff Manager (accepted): https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=1819
I stepped down from this position after almost a year in it because of things in my personal life that were making it difficult for me to enjoy staffing. I'd just gone into my second year of university and started fully in my program (which has lots of labs) and I had trouble adjusting. At the time I felt that what was best for myself, for the team and the community was to step down. I don't regret that decision because now I feel able to do the best I can.

  Malfoy PVP Event!
Posted by: Larissa Adareaux-Pumpkins - 10-20-2021, 09:15 AM - Forum: Event Suggestions - Replies (1)

(1) What type of event is this? (Passive RP, Forum announced, etc.) - Passive RP PVP event. 

So I had this idea when I was roleplaying today as Narcissa Malfoy and my friend was Lucius Malfoy, we were pretending to have quite the bumpy relationship and saying we were getting divorced and doing all sorts of mean things to each other such as saying that I updated his life insurance and put a hit on him XD. Others got involved and we were having loads of fun, we even had Dobby as our house elf and Draco later arrived and Lucius and I were fighting over him. 

(2) What are the details of this event and how will it be run? -

Players involved: 
3 main actors; Narcissa, Lucius and Draco Malfoy.

Teams:
Light force - Narcissa, Draco, Hogwarts students.

Dark Force - Lucius Malfoy and all the Deatheater buddies he can muster.

*Note* 
Narcissa being a dark force might need to be restricted and not fight at all and instead command her troops. Or have her fight for LF just for the duration of the event and not use DF spells. 

All roles are welcome of course these are just the 'main factions'.


Event Preparation: 
- Spawn in Malfoy Manor.
- Gather Dark Forces team.
- Spawn in artifacts and hide them throughout the manor.
- Spawn in the house goals for Light Forces to drop the artifacts into. With your experience I'm sure you guys            can figure out a nice place to put these in a fair location while also being challenging.
-Spawn in Court House for end of event.

Alter health, spawns, equipment and all sorts if you think necessary. 
E.g. Give the main actors bonus health or have someone playing as Dobby and give him a medkit to heal people. 

Number of artifacts in the goals allocated to the 4 Hogwarts houses are counted at the end of the event. The house with the most artifacts in their goal wins house points!


The Event: 
Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy are now divorced, Lucius has Malfoy Manor and Narcissa has Draco. 

Narcissa and Draco want the ManorNarcissa has the cunning plan to have her nasty ex-husband arrested for possession of illegal dark artifacts in his house! Once Lucius is arrested, Narcissa and Draco will move back into their lovely home.

Narcissa and Draco rally an army of students to help them attack the manor.

This could be done with an advert for a great hall meeting and change the active class name to something event related.
This always works very well in previous events that I have played in. Especially if accompanied with a music track. 

Light Force objective: 
Light forces are to assault Malfoy Manor and kill any Deatheaters who try to stop them. Once inside they have to steal as many illegal dark artifacts inside the manor as possible. Once a player has an artifact they have to bring it outside and throw it into the goal representing their house! 

Repeat until all artifacts are recovered or until time is up (the timer might be a few class periods or so.) 

Dark Force Objective:
Dark Forces are to Defend Malfoy Manor and their friend Lucius from his bat crazy ex-wife! Kill all intruders and protect the illegal artifacts the best they can.

The Ministry sees Lucius' evil artifacts and his Deatheater friends flying around killing students that they apprehend Lucius and as many of his Dark Force friends that they can and bring them in to the court house for their trial, players can represent, defend and accuse Lucius and his friends of their crimes! 
I'm sure this could all be impromptu and optional but I definitely think it would be a great way and a very fun way to finish an event like this, hearing people arguing and having a good laugh at any funny moments that might have happened. Wrapping up the event in the court house could open up for some really cool and funny roleplay. 

(3) What problems could arise and how could they be remedied? -  

Unfair teams making the objective impossible for one side: 
During the Great Hall meeting ensure both teams are ready and do a quick count up of players, E.g. a full server of students filling the Great Hall ready to storm a house with only 5 Deatheaters in it probably won't go so well. The same could go for not having enough students trying to attack a house with all DF roles filled and all sorts of DF customs stacking their team. Unfair teams is the only major issue I could see happening with this event. 

I have played an event which gameplaywise was very similar in objective and went very smoothly (its where I got the goals with house colours idea from), it was run by Gina and Miro. I'm sorry I really don't know how to predict or offer any advice to fix problems that could occur. 

Please do my event I think it could be alot of fun! Make sure that if you do I am logged in!  Heart

  Name Appeal No one has had a problem with my name until now?
Posted by: LoxSilver - 10-20-2021, 01:15 AM - Forum: Name Appeals - Replies (8)

(1) What is your current ingame name? - Cyrus Sollars

(2) What is the name/title you are requesting? - Cyr Sollars

(2a) TITLE APPEALS ONLY (leave blank if you're not appealing a title): What is the roleplay behind your title and what job are you playing as? -

(3) Why is this name/title not allowed by the Hogwarts staff? - Apparently, it is the name of a Role Play streamer. I was not aware that there was a streamer with that name.

(3a) If you remember the name of the staff member that requested you to change your name/title, who was it?- I think it was Kerspie?

(4) Why should this name/title be allowed? - Given Name, (First Name) Cyr. The name Cyr has a wonderfully fearless quality. A wonderfully distinctive name. Cyr is unique yet compelling due to its stylish and daring nature. I also have had this name since I joined the server, (once I changed it from my Steam Username). There may have been one before that but the one I feel comfortable with is Cyr. In most online games I have played or single-player games I have played I have called myself Cyr, e.g Star wars The Old Republic, Pokemon. I had no knowledge of a streamer named 'Cyr' until an admin or staff member told me. I have had this name for a long while and up until now no one has had a problem with it or asked me to change it.
