  Discussion: Ways to promote the server
Posted by: Checkers #BringBackSBSCWRP - 01-15-2019, 12:03 PM - Forum: Denied Suggestions - Replies (2)

Captain Checkers

So. This doesn't truly count as a suggestion, but more of a question. I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this, but I don't know where  put it otherwise.

What are some ways to encourage new players to come to our server?

It's a question I ask myself a lot, as most servers die because of never having a devoted player base. I know it is a bit early to ask, and that we are getting a good influx of new cadets everyday. But I think it is always a good thing to try and aim a bit higher.

Star Amy S Aob Moderator Application
Posted by: Amy S Aob - 01-15-2019, 01:23 AM - Forum: Locked Applications - Replies (20)

(1.) What is your SteamID? - STEAM_0:0:54807717

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? -
Heart Amy S Aob

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be 7th to apply.) -
Heart Prestige 3 Year 6

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? -
Heart EST, (CST +1)

(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. -
Heart 1. (CST) 7:15 am - 10:00 am
Heart 2. (CST) 7:00 pm - 9 am

* I work nights so, I have very flexible hours which i log in. If im working it will be 1, and my nights off usually end up being 2

(3.) How old are you? -
Heart  669168000 seconds, or 21 years old

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? -
Heart I joined 9, Sept. 2018. I really loved the books and was curious whether or not sbs would be the real harry potter experience or just some cringe, I was pleased.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? -
Heart I've made a lot of friends on this server, and more importantly i've spent my money on it ;-;

(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? -
Heart Yep

(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? -
Heart I understand that moderators are expected to be an example of how to have fun on the server by following the rules

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
List Rules below:

1: No Fail Rp
Heart Every job has a role to play and increases the immersion of others. Don't act in ways that are against the character you're playing or break the suspension of disbelief for others, for example killing yourself because you don't have a healing spell instead of finding someone that does
2: Be Respectful
Heart racism obviously is not tolerated, but to me this rule is most often broken in OOC when people get a little upset with each other and it escalates, other examples would be hanging snatches for the full duration, and continuously freespelling one person beyond NLR.
3: No RDM
Heart Pretty straight forward, don't kill someone unless you have a very valid RP reason to do so
4: Obey Staff and RP Leaders
Heart If a staff tells you not to do something, or to do something, you have to do/not do it. As for RP leaders, there are certain jobs that are allowed to pull rank on others for RP reasons. If you're a snatcher and voldemort asks you for your lunch money, you give it to him gosh dangit.
5: No Free-Spelling
Heart Don't just use spells for no reason. Especially not ones that hinder other players, be it stupefy, Heyedillio or verdimilious.
6: No Metagaming
Heart Don't act on information you've gotten by non-RP means. Don't say someones a snatcher unless they're revealed. Treat animagi as their animals unless you've seen them transfigure.
7: Do Not Micspam/Chatspam
Heart Micspam is using your mic constantly, whether it be playing music or reading out the entire book series its no good. Also don't post the same thing more than 3 times in quick succession in chat.
8: Do Not Fail Advert
Heart Adverts are for RP reasons only, not for you to talk to your friends, that's what OOC is for. Only certain RP reasons can be adverted too, like if you control the pitch, but not that you're going to set up a lemonade stand in the hufflepuff dorms. (that would be awesome though)
9: No ERP  
Heart No erotic roleplay. This includes making lewd noises or being sexual in any way.
10: Do Not Avoid The AFK System
Heart Don't do anything that would get around the 20 minute afk system. Its there for people to get on if the server is full and if that job has limited slots. Home teleport is good for if you have to get a drink or something.

(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server -
Heart To put it in my own words, a minge is someone (though usually not alone) who joins the server with no intention to follow the rules, or more often than not, with every intention to break the rules for fun

(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) -
Heart I'm Amy, You've probably seen my name in OOC roleplaying as my reporter or generally making puns. As for why I would like to be a moderator, I don't see many people on when I would be available and so I hope to help the few staff there with the sits.

(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -
Heart I will have to read the specifics on certain rules regarding all the custom jobs so I can better understand the lines people may accidentally cross when roleplaying and inform them of it.

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
Heart With my schedule I am extremely flexible on when I will be on. Early morning CST is when there are usually only a couple staff on from what I've seen. Also, i've worked as a waitress and in retail so I have a lot of experience dealing with people.

Heart What sets me apart from the rest of the applicants is how I handle problems. Only minges break rules for malicious reasons, the vast majority of rule breaking goes on due to people getting carried away. In that case, a simple reminder of the rule and a polite request to relax a little is all that's needed, and it doesn't reduce their enjoyment of the server. I've seen this philosophy work when I'm prefecting.

(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -
Heart None

(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. -
Heart I've never been banned on any servers

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? -
Heart The players are the most important thing to a server. The server is essentially an entertainment business, people come on to have fun, and if they spend money it funds the server to make it better. This means the players are the foundation for the server's existence. The players are there to play, and the staff is there to make sure they play fair, everything is focused around the players.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) -

Patience : 10 (Since I don't use my mic)
Response time : 2 (Since i don't use my mic)
Creativity : 8
Friendliness : 9
Rules Knowledge : 6

(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? -
Heart If there's a situation in a sit I don't know how to handle I will refer to other staff who know the protocols better than I, and have a fair discussion on how it should be handled. Authority is always more effectively used when more than one person is involved.

(14.) You understand and realize, that by applying for staff on the server also means, that you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to RP freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues at hand no matter the situation? -
Heart I understand this. I would rather make sure everyone is having fun RPing without risking a ban. My puns will always be in OOC anyway~

(15.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If they were accepted, please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) - First Application

-  Heart  -
If you've actually read this far then thank you.
