  The Balance changes
Posted by: Garrus Vakarian - 07-15-2018, 04:14 PM - Forum: Help & Feedback - Replies (10)

The current patch of balance updates aren't fun to deal with.

First off a lot of stuff isn't here to be accessed as well as Forum staff not being able to do as much as they could.

Second, I don't particularly like the lack of the spoiler item. It was sooo good I don't know why they removed.

I mean I get it, it was really strong on important forum rule posts but come on! We need it back, especially for players on the forum admin role and peoples taunts.

  Kory Sanguis-Savage's GM application
Posted by: Kory S'Sanguis - 07-15-2018, 03:37 PM - Forum: Locked Applications - Replies (10)

(1.) What is your SteamID,profile?
STEAM_0:0:55892651
https://steamcommunity.com/id/sdjkbjhsvs/

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? 
Kory Sanguis-Savage

(2.) What Timezone do you live in?
GMT+1 (UTC+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.
 From 12:00 to 6:00 (CST), or from 9pm to 1am.

(3.) How old are you? 
20

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it?(
I joined back in August and I've been playing ever since, I saw sbs in the hogwarts rp list and I joined it because it had the most players.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? 
I've been here for 10 months.

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

(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: No fail RP.
You cannot do things that you wouldn't if the server was real life. Many things belong here for example fail rp names you cannot be called like "1234" or "Emma Watson". You cannot stand on someone's head and the list goes on.

2: No disrespect hateful speech.
You cannot say the N word or F word at all no matter the context and you have to be respectful towards everyone on the server.

3: No Random Deathmatch (RDM)
You cannot just kill anyone without an rp reason. So for example as a teacher you cannot just kill students as it's fail rp and RDM. You cannot kill snatchers if they are not reveald as it's also RDM.

4: Obey staff and RP leaders.
There is a hierarchy that you have to respect. As a student you have to listen to prefects,teachers and so on. As a DF member you have to listen to Bellatrix,Borf,Lucius and Voldemort if you're a deatheater or a snatcher, also snatchers have to listen to snatcher leaders. Last but not least everyone has to listen to staff.

5: No freespelling.
You cannot cast your spells without a proper RP reason. Freespelling can be damaging spells but annoying spells too like stupefy or everte statum.

6: No metagaming.
You cannot use out of game/character information like jobtags "snatcher" or information from OOC chat like "help I'm snatched"- if you see this you have to disregard it as it'd be metagaming if you tried to save that person based on the ooc chat information.

7: No microphone or chat spam.
Pretty self explenatory. You cannot flod the chat with the same message multiple times or with different messages but typing a lot into the chat. You cannot yell scream, sing or make weird noises to your mic as it's micspamming.

8: Advert is for RP purposes only.
You can only advert serious and important RP things. You cannot advert like I'm beautiful. A correct advert is like PTS is active in class 1.

9: No ERP (erotic roleplay)
You cannot act out sexual activities or make sexual sounds.

10: No AFK exploiting.
You cannot avoid the AFK system with commands or hiding and moving forward from time to time. 

(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server 
Has no intent to roleplay, minges will to whatever they want to entertain themselved even if it means that they have to break the rules.


(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS?
I'm a university student, my major currently is sociology so I know some  shit about people bebe. I'm mostly chill and I always try to look at the good things first but it ain't easy also I'm just a human I have enough of things sometimes. I can speak Hungarian duh, English and some French(my vocab sucks in french). I don't like it when people talk shit about me behind my back, if you have a problem with me tell me, I cannot try to change something that I don't know of.

(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most?
Relaxing and just enjoying myself, I have a hard time chilling when I have to do something and I have to be responsible. Also accepting that some people cannot be changed or saved, they are just bad lol.

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants?
I've had a kind of good dynamic with the other GMs and if something goes wrong during and event I can come up with a solution quickly. My events might not be the best, the most original but the players seem to enjoy all of them on SBS and that's what really matters. I already know a lot of commands, my buildings are decent and I'm on the EU timezone.

(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones?
- I have been an admin on a Counter Strike 1.6 server but the server doesn't exist anymore. :(
- I'm was moderator here on SBS.
- I'm the owner of my dead server if that counts.

(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. 
I have beed banned once but the ban reason was invalid so I got unbanned.

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why?
Both are equally important. Players give the rp and staff boosts rp and makes sure that everyone is having fun and not breaking rules. Neither can exist without the other, just be on the server while prefect's law is active and you'll understand. :)

(12.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) 
Response time - 8
Patience - 8
Honesty -9
Aim - 2
Communication,expression skills - 7
Loyality - 10
Ambition - 10

(13.) How familiar on a scale of 1 to 10 are you with Garrys Mod Sandbox tools? 
A solid 7.5 I've been practiting a lot.

(14.) Give us an example of an event you would use.
Events

(15.) Do you have any experience using ULX or building on Garry's Mod?
I have a lot of experience with ULX probably more than most staff right now. I can build but I'm not the best I still have room to grow.

(16.) 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? 
Yeah.

(17.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked
http://www.starbystargaming.com/hogwarts...pplocation -locked to my personal request.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? -
Almost, every day I have been playing Dobby or just online playing. The concept, art, design, all coming together to make Hogwarts. I have been oddly fascinated by all that goes into running a server with so many players.

Yes, I do understand that I’m always online playing this server.
(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? - Yes, I'm always active on the server helping people with the rules and what to do as well as what not to do.

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
List Rules below:
1: No Fail RP.
Make sure that your actions have an actually RP reason. Don't just kill yourself because you’re bored, raid the graveyard as a student, enter the school as a death eater, have a silly or inappropriate name, etc.
2: Disrespectful, hateful, and offensive behavior/speech toward others is not allowed.
We will not tolerate any sort of hate speech directed towards any specific race, religion, sexuality, gender, etc.
3: No RDM. Random Deathmatch is when you kill or attempt to kill someone with no valid RP reason.
4: Obey Staff and Roleplay Leaders. As seen, throughout the movies and books there is a line of respect. Examples: (For a Student, they listen to the Prefects, Prefects listen to the Teachers, etc..) For a DF member, they listen to Bellatrix, Lucius, Voldemort. Snatchers also listen to the Snatcher leaders. Lastly, everyone has to listen to the Staff.
5: No free spelling. You are not to cast your spells without a proper RP reason. Free spelling can be classified mostly as damaging spells and annoying spells like Stupefy, Verdimillious, Everte Statum.

You can not fill the chat with the same message multiple times or with different messages but type a lot into the chat. You cannot sing, yell or scream, make weird/odd noises to your mic as that is mic spamming.
8: Advert is for RP purposes only.
You can only advert serious and important RP things. You cannot advert Party at Hagrid’s. A proper advert would be PTS is active in Herbology.
9: No ERP (Erotic Roleplay)
You can not make sexual sounds or act out sexual activities.
10: Do not avoid the AFK system. You can not avoid or stall the AFK system with the use of commands or move every few minutes just to stay in the game.
(5b) Explain what the term "minge" means when referring to a player on the server -
A player acting like a “minge” has no intention to roleplay, or they might play to only break the rules, they are only playing for their own entertainment. Mostly, trolling the other players or staff.

Gamemaker

I want to be able to prove myself not only to everyone but to myself. I want to know that I can do something that will impact me and hopefully others.

I thought my ideas could benefit myself if I become a Gamemaker.
(8.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -
I need to improve my Self-confidence and Self-doubt, I have a hard time thinking about certain things because of it.
(9.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - I may not be an upcoming member of staff before this application but I feel with my determination, creativity, and helpfulness could bring more to the server as a Gamemaker.
