HeyGuys

     I thought a form of introduction was due since I am approaching 4th prestige, and now that the server is undergoing maintenance I thought "there couldn't be a better time to do this." So far I have only played the HWRP server, but plan to check out the SBS SWRP very soon since I have experience on another SWRP server and would like to get back into that scene.

     My rpname is normally Kenji Whitestar-Pumpkins, or some variation. People that know me; Probably know me better as Ken. You will see me playing just about any job I have access to sometimes I prefect, sometimes I don't. My favorite jobs have to be DFs that can snatch. Snatching up an unsuspecting second year never gets old for me. I think that says enough about my play style hehehahaha.

     I played on and off SBS HWRP server for about a year, (don't really remember when) and recently started getting more involved in the community because I have made friends that have encouraged me to stick around this time (; . I believe I have made some interaction with most of the frequenters whether it be bad or good lol.., but I hope no grudges are held because, in the end, we are all here to have a good time (hopefully). If anyone has a question please feel welcome to PM me or reply to this thread I'd be happy to answer them.    
                
 Thank you for reading      - Kenji  Heart

On the SBS website, it says that all servers are offline, and when I go looking for any SBS servers in GMOD, there are none.Does anyone know how to fix this?If so, please tell me.

  Network Maintenance/Dedicated Machine Relocation & Upgrade
Posted by: The Guy - 10-18-2019, 04:28 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (88)

Our server host is down while our machine is being upgraded. This will greatly improve all of our servers. Even though the maintenance was schedule to occur overnight, looks like plans changed. We will keep you posted as we receive more information. Here's the post directly from our provider:

===
Network Maintenance Report
====
Service Affected: Entire Dallas Infrastructure
Date: Starting Range ( October 18th )
Reason: (Planned) Dallas location upgrade/transit.
Estimated Time Frame: 2-4 hours.
Start Time: (Range) 11 AM - 3 PM Central Time.
End Time: N/A

Additional Details:

We have been planning a significant upgrade to our Dallas location throughout the last six months. While we don't have a direct starting or ending date yet, things are definitely in progress. We have a rough starting time-frame of September 25th, 2019 to October 20th, 2019

I will be flying out to Dallas personally to carry out the upgrade/relocation in one evening. It will take two to four hours at most, and more information will be posted as time goes on.

This upgrade will require complete downtime and will be done very late at night (Estimated starting time is 1-4 AM Central Time). The plan is to make this as little of an inconvenience as possible.

Expect better uptime, lower latency, more overall network capacity, less intermittent issues/jitters, more local peering in Dallas, and added growth in Dallas regarding our products and services.

  Perseus Peverell Plouton Moderator Application
Posted by: Perseus Peverell Plouton - 10-18-2019, 04:01 PM - Forum: Staff Applications - Replies (15)

DISCLAIMER: (Same Disclaimer as GM App) This is going to be me being 100% honest. I know sometimes I can act goofy, and joke around, and go around asking "Do you like fortnite?" But this application is 100% serious. I have 2 different sides, and I have spoken to a couple staff members about it. 1 side I like to be friendly and make people laugh, but the other side is the side I like to keep private because I like to make people laugh. I'm extremely respectful of others, and I feel bad for others. I have been in a position similar to this, and also higher then this before, and I know how to act and what I'm supposed to do. I want to be able to benefit the server, and let everyone have a great time on HogwartsRP. I understand the seriousness of this application and rank, and if I get accepted I will not let any of you down. I want to be able to make you all enjoy the server more, and create more great memories. 

UPDATED DISCLAIMER: I know I really don't even need to put the disclaimer since it could seem bad if you don't know me that well. I just want people to know that this is 100% serious, and I truly care about the server, and the community as a whole. I have been trying to show more of my serious side since my last application, and I think I have some. I know the rules like the back of my hand, and I want to be able to let new players enjoy the server as much as I did. With that being said, I thank you for looking at my application, and I hope you enjoy reading it! Thanks, and have a wonderful day!


(1.) What is your SteamID?STEAM_0:1:47973755


(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - Spookeus Peverell Plouton. It is normally Perseus Peverell Plouton

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

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? - Eastern Standard Time.

(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. - I believe EST is 1 hour ahead of CST, so you can expect to see me anywhere from 3PM-3AM. I am extremely active and I sometimes spend 12+ hours on.
 
(3.) How old are you? - I'm 16 years old.

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - I found out about HogwartsRP back in early 2017 through some friends that were on the server. I decided to hop on, and give it a try.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - Like I said in my previous application, I have been here for 3, almost 4 years now. I've enjoyed playing here, and I look forward to continue playing on the server. I have been here since I was about 12 years old. I don't plan on giving up SBS any time soon. :)

(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - Yes I do.

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

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
 List Rules below:
  1: Rule number one would be "No FailRP (Fail Roleplay)" What this means is that you cannot do something that your RP character would not do. You can't be playing as an Auror and snatch a student, that would be considered FailRP. Another example would be a Prefect arresting another Prefect, or a Prefect arresting a teacher.
 2: Rule number two would be "No Hate Speech/Disrespect towards other players." This means you cannot use any racist, and or homophobic slurs/words, and you should be respecting the fellow players on the server.
 3: Rule number three would be "No RDM (Random Death Match)" This means you cannot kill another player without a valid RP reasons. An example would be, a student killing another student because he took his homework/spell book. That would be considered RDM.
 4: Rule number four is "Obey Staff & RP (Role Play) Leaders" This means if you're a prefect you should be listening to your RP leaders. (Head Boy/Girl, and Teachers) You should also always be listening to what staff say to you.
 5: Rule number five is "No Massive Free Spelling." What this means is you shouldn't be going around casting Stupefy, Verdimillious, etc, at other people, or in the air for no RP reason.
 6: Rule number six is "No Metagaming" This means that you cannot use information obtained through OOC means for RP purposes. An example would be you read an undercover Dark Forces job title, and you say that they're a Snatcher.
 7: Rule number seven is "No Mic/Chat Spam" This means you are not allow to blare music into your mic, scream into your mic, or say the same thing in voice or chat repeatedly.
 8: Rule number eight is "Advert is for RP purposes only." This means you are supposed to use advert for RP purposes only. An example would be a Dark Force selling off a person they snatched. An unacceptable example would be a student adverting about what they had for lunch.
 9: Rule number nine is "No ERP (Erotic Role Play)" This means no sexual role play, or anything even close to it. It is unacceptable.
 10: Rule number ten is "Do not avoid the AFK system, or Map Exploit"

Avoiding the AFK system means, you're not allowed to create macros, or anything that will prevent you from being kicked for being AFK.
Map exploiting would be finding a place where you can glitch yourself into a spot where you cannot be found/killed.


 
(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - A minge would be someone who has no intent to RP on the server, and is there to mainly cause problems, or to break rules on the server.
 
(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - Here we go again haha. Well for starters my name on the server is Perseus, I'm 16 years old, and I love to talk to people! :) I've been playing on the server closer to 4 years now, and I have enjoyed it a lot. I have contributed so much time to the server, and I think it would only be fair if I started giving back. I've donated to the server several times, but I still feel like I can do more. I applied for Gamemaker but almost as soon as I posted it I started having second thoughts. After closing it, I started speaking to a few people, making sure this is really what I wanted to do. I slept on it for a few nights, and I finally decided I'll try out Moderator for a while and see how that goes. A lot of the reasons I want to be staff are already stated in my previous application, and I don't want to sound like I'm just copying from it. I really do want to help the server, and I really do want to see the server improve, and grow more! I'm a very active player, and I am almost on every single time its "Prefect Law." I would like to be able to do something about the rule breakers other then just reporting them, because I feel bad for the other players that have to deal with that type of stuff. I also wanted to touch up on the disclaimer at the top again. I felt like I should put that because I joke around sometimes. I know when I should be serious, and I am acting mature doing those times. But I like to make people laugh, and have people relax, and enjoy the server. I've put so much time into this server, and I've loved SBS for a while now. I want to be able to let new players enjoy the server as much as I did when I first joined. I want them to be able to make friends, and progress throughout the years without having to worry about minges, or people trying to cause them harm. I understand the responsibilities that come with this rank, and if I do get a shot at Moderator, I will not let any of you down. (If you would like to read my previous application you can find it at the bottom! :) ) (Edit: I now just noticed it says "100 words or less." I hope this will not be a problem, I'm just used to putting forth a lot of effort into each question and making it as detailed as possible. Most other applications I've done in the past say "100 words or more.")
 
(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - Honestly its probably just being more open. Right now I really only show the players on the server my joking side. The staff team (I hope they know) knows that I can be serious when I need to be. (Reports, rule breaks, etc.) I like to make people laugh, and some people may label me as immature, or childish for that, even though its the complete opposite. 
 
(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - A lot of the same reasons still apply from my last application. I'm extremely active when no staff are on. (Early mornings.) It's prefect law for 4-5+ hours at some times and I'm usually on then. I'm extremely experienced with both lua, ULX, and Garry's Mod in general. I know on my last application a lot of people didn't believe I have been playing Garry's Mod for 11 years, but it really is true. I wasn't obviously playing all on my own like I do now. My older brother got me into gaming. I was playing GTA as well when I was 5. I was playing a lot of sandbox, and just building when I was younger. I didn't really pick up Garry's Mod on my own until I was around 7 or 8. Back to the main point though. A lot of points from my previous application still stand. Activity, experience, efficiency. I'm a perfectionist. I like to get things done as soon as possible.
 
(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - There is way to many to remember. I've owned, developed, managed, and done whatever you can think of, with countless communities. I have pretty much had any rank you can think of. I am not currently staff on any other server though.
 
(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - Other Garry's Mod servers yes. I've done stupid shit while I was younger but that doesn't really matter anymore. Everyone does. As for SBS, the only bans I can think of are from years ago with the old spell system. Someone would give everyone in the server Avada and everyone would start killing each other. I got perm banned 2 or 3 times because they kept thinking it was me. (It wasn't.) I had appeal all the bans, and got them all approved.
 
(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why?They are both really important. You can't really have a community without a player base, but when players come, minges follow along as well. Staff is also extremely important because they maintain peace on the server, and they can handle the players that are there to ruin other people's experience.
 
(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc)
Activity: 10/10
Ability to handle a sit: 9/10
Honesty: 10/10 (There is no reason to be lying. No reason.)
Organization: 10/10
Confidence: 9/10
Response Time: 9/10
Leadership: 8/10
Communication: 9/10
 
(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - I don't think this will come up but hey, you never know. I'd first get the entire story, and do my best to understand which rules are broken, and if I'm still confused on the situation, I would attempt to contact another staff member for help. If they can help, then great! If they cannot, then I would suggest them making a report on the forums. If it is not a report of another player, or a rule in general, I would tell them to post in the "Help & Guides" section with their question.
 
(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? - Yes I do.

(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) -
Gamemaker Application - Closed due to me requesting it. I just felt like I should focus on myself, and see if this is really what I want to do.

Just a heads up, I will most likely keep this application updated, and may add stuff later on.

  Jimmy Moggs Staff Manager App
Posted by: Cuddles - 10-18-2019, 03:07 PM - Forum: Community Staff Applications - Replies (16)

(1.) What is your SteamID and your Steam URL? -
 https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197997986669/

(1a) What is your most common name for the SBS community? -
  Jimmy Moggs

(1b.) How old are you? -
27

(2.) What position are you applying for? -
 Staff Manager

(3.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - 
Discovered about a month ago whilst trying to find a link to HP Order of the Phoenix video game I played years ago!

(4.) Community staff must be active at a higher standard when compared to staff, do you understand that you may be let go for inactivity? - 
I do 

(5.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - 
So in my teens (about '04 to '09) I was massively into MMOs (Star Wars Galaxies and the like), and the contemporary approach to that - through Gmod - offers a really unique community feel, particularly with a story (HP) that I read as a child - yes I'm that old. 

(6.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - 
So for me as a player the Hogwarts RP has a very imperceptible style of gameplay - there is no guide to most of the questions new starters want or need answered - to retain population in the server I'd love to bring an approach of building that 'when you first start playing, these are the things you need to know' knowledge base.  

(7.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - 
I'm probably, tragically, one of the oldest - and as an aside, one of the ones who has grown up in the HP mania that happened. Being a tad older also means I'm a professional and have an experienced set of management skills and capabilities. 

(8.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -
I was once upon a time - Team Fortress 2 used to (and may still have) a Prison Break RP theme that I was an admin of. Was a brilliant community with a hilarious raft of characters that joined. That was about 5/6 years ago though. 

(9.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) -
Patience - Very high
Response time - If I'm online I'm online. Though I do have a full time job and a raft of friends so it's more of a 2-3 nights (UK time) thing than anything else. 
Management of people - Very high
Impartiality - nature of job mandates I am impartial so Very High 

(10.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If you are no longer Staff on any SBS server(s), please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) -
N/A

(11.) (Optional) Provide examples of situations you would handle in the position you are applying for here and how you would handle them. -
Probably more suited to a discord chat - would be very happy to have one. 

Thanks for reading!
