[Image: 0yS3wk7.png]

(1.) What is your SteamID? - STEAM_0:1:28198351

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - Marie Cooper-Crowlett

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

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? - CST

(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. - My sleep schedule can be all over the place so I will be updating this question often if the times I spend on the server changes. On Nov. 27th, it was about 11pm-4am. From Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, I was mostly on from 7-11am. On Dec. 2, I was mostly on from 10am-12pm. At the moment (Since Dec. 4) i'm mostly on from 4pm-10pm
 
(3.) How old are you? - 24

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - I joined in July 2017. I was looking for GMod roleplay servers on Twitch.tv and stumbled upon a stream playing SBS HogwartsRP. Already being a big HP fan, I instantly fell in love with it. 

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - My goal is to reach Master Prestige and I understand that being a moderator will make that process even slower, having to prioritize calls over homework. So I will be here for years to come.

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

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

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

1:No FailRP - Fail Roleplay means doing something that's outside of what your character (or job) would actually do. These can include snatchers cuffing snatchers, Voldemort going inside the school when it isn't lockdown, talking about drugs in Herbology class, or having a FailRP name(Any name that's a famous known muggle, tv show/movie character, vulgar/sexual words or phrases, drug references, etc).

2:No Disrespect - Says as it is, no disrespect. This can include calling someone names such as bitch, slut, dumbass, etc. This can also include homophobic, racial, transphobic, and anti-semitic slurs.

3:No RDM - RDM means Random Death Match. Do not kill someone without a valid RP reason. Example: You may kill a snatcher if their cuffs are shown and/or snatched a student, but you cannot kill another student/teacher in "self defense" as a student.

4:Obey Staff an RP Leaders - You must obey what a staff member says and you must obey whoever is seen as above you in ranks in your job. If you're a student, you must obey prefects and teachers for example. As a snatcher, you must obey someone as low as Snatcher Leader and as high as Voldemort.

5: No Freespelling - Do not cast a spell without a valid RP reason. Healing spells, Speedom, and Spongify are exempt from this. Any other spell can be seen as freespelling if you're casting it randomly.

6: No Metagaming - Metagaming means information that your character would not know or giving information that others would not know and using it to your/their advantage. This can include: Telling someone in OOC that you've been snatched or saying that an unrevealed snatcher is a snatcher

7: No Mic/Chat spam - Do not flood the chat with the same message and do not Mic spam. Mic spam can include singing, screaming or shoving your mic down your throat (how I like to call it), playing music through your mic, and reverberating sounds from the server through your mic (I should not be hearing everyone's voices coming from your mic)

8: No Fail Adverts - Adverts are for roleplay and players from different servers should use caution with their binds. Valid adverts can include a teacher being needed in class, a reason for points being given to a house, an event announcement, class dismissal, calling for a DOS, and snatchers selling snatched students or ministry workers. This does NOT include any parties at Hagrid's, muggings, or vulgar language that falls under rule 2.
 
9: No ERP - ERP means Erotic Roleplay. This can include /me of any sexual acts, talking about yours or someone else's genitalia, and crouching in front of a seated player and "nodding" your head.

10: Don't avoid the AFK system or exploit the map - Do not type a console command so your character will move without you doing it so you won't get kicked to farm XP. Do not use bugs/glitches to your advantage to get somewhere where you otherwise cannot get to.
 
(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - A minge is when someone gets on the server to break rules, cause trouble, and has no intent to roleplay or otherwise abide by the rules. 
 
(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - My name is Nicole and i'm 24 years old. Outside of the server, I've been an amateur (slowly going to freelance) voice actress since I was 16 and I'm also a Youtuber. I've always wanted to be a moderator to give back to the community that's given me life but certain things prevented me from trying. Until recently I've been really giving it some thought and with the support from my friends and boyfriend, I feel like now is the time to do it.
 
(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - The two things I've been working on to not do and improve is being less sarcastic and more patient. 
 
(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - I try to put myself into other people's shoes and everyone who knows me knows that I always listen to both sides in a situation before coming to a decision. I'm very much like Miles Edgeworth from Ace Attorney in terms of "Proof is everything." I've seen groups of people gang up on one person and try to report that person for hatespeech and luckily I was there to explain to the staff member that what they reported was not true at all and I've been in that person's shoes also and luckily it didn't go as far as staff being involved. 
 
(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - On Garry's Mod, no.
 
(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - I've only been banned once on SBS (none on any other server) for 1 day and that was raiding the GY.
 
(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - Both of them definitely go hand in hand, but I feel as though players are more important. Without players, a server can't grow and without players, there would be no one to apply for staff.
 
(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) - I feel as though my overall would be high, but with my patience, I would have to bring it down to a 6 or 7.
 
(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - I would ask another moderator or admin for advice. If no one is available, I would be as fair as I can with the punishment and check with a staff member on whether the punishment was fine, and in case of a ban, whether I should increase or decrease it.
 
(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? - Absolutely. I've already stated that I would prioritize calls over homework.

(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) - This is my first app!

  Some Mind-Boggling Questions
Posted by: Leo Delaire - 11-27-2018, 05:55 PM - Forum: Feedback - Replies (25)

Question 1:
Since when did it become drama and toxicity to have a different opinion than others? 

Just because someone has a different opinion does not give you the right to label them as dramatic or toxic. There have been a lot of things coming up on the forums that the Staff team has painted others in bad lighting, simply because they don't agree with them or get along with them. I'm afraid that our definition of the term dramatic is transforming into the relevant urbandictionary definition:

Dramatic: a word manipulative people use to describe a perfectly reasonable reaction to something completely fucked up that they've said or done. Often used in an attempt to evade accountability or personal guilt.

While we are on the terms of definition, let’s bring up the one for toxicity:
Toxic: a group of people who are rude and can't be nice. They are not true to people around them. They need an attitude check. Their personalities are so unappealing its make the people around them suffer and turn rude as well. Beware of toxics!

I would say that the two main groups that are arguing both would consider each other toxic. And just because you carry the Mod title and are in the echo chamber that suits those that can get into positions of power, does not make it okay for you to be toxic. Being Staff and trying to paint people as toxic and dramatic because they have a different opinion than you, is YOU being toxic and dramatic. This behavior is unfair and needs to stop.

Question 2:
When did leaking private conversations turn out to be a requirement to get onto the Staff team and be seen as an okay thing to do?

It seems like this behavior has been brought on by the new staff – people are constantly sharing information back and forth between people. There are leakers on the Staff team that are known about that have gotten their position by sharing private conversations to the Staff team and then there are people sitting on the Staff that have leaked to community members that are untouched. We will not go into names here. 

You want for people to be trustworthy and yet you accept those that leak to YOU. This needs to be heavily considered: cheaters will always cheat. Just like leakers will always leak. They have already shown to you that they are untrustworthy and yet you shrug it off, “well, they showed me what I wanted, so it’s okay!” would you have the same opinion on, “well, he cheated on me because he likes me, so it’s okay!” No, that person has shown you how they are as a person – and once they are with you, they have an extremely increased chance of cheating on you with someone else.

Question 3:

When did it become a qualification to be friends with Staff to get onto the Staff team?

The only people that have been accepted onto the team since the new Staff manager have been those that are close to them as friends(or dare I say it, carry the Aeternalis last name). When people have asked, “what am I doing wrong?” to some individuals, they have been told “You need to be friendlier with the team, you can’t go making people upset or creating *drama* with them. This is why you need more time.” 

Question 4:

When will something be done about this?

Star ? Victory Mane { Character Sheet } ?
Posted by: victory ⭐ - 11-27-2018, 09:27 AM - Forum: Roleplay - Replies (13)

[Image: victorymanesheet.png]

zzz heres a lil something

Name: Victory Mane
Gender: Female
Age: 18 years
Height: 5'5''

House: Hufflepuff
Blood status: Mudblood
Year: 7th
Prefect: Yes
Preferred subject: Herbology
Patronus: Field Rabbit
Wand: Beech wood with a Dragon heartstring core 
13'' long and Unbending flexibility.
This wand is pretty old and can act up at times.
Victory has taken precautions to tie a 
luck imbued ribbon to the base of the wand to keep it in line.
This doesn't always help. 

Vic is a pretty care-free soul still gaining her footing in the realm of wizardy and magic. She was late to get her letter to Hogwarts, but made it nonetheless.
 Her 7 years at Hogwarts practically breezed by. She's only about average at most subjects but found her best work to be in and about the study of 
Herbology. She only put in just enough effort to get those passing grades, but despite her meager attempts to succeed; it was obvious she was 
more than determined to prove her worth. Her pure need to be an active part of Hogwarts earned her a comfy spot as one of the only few 
Hufflepuff prefects at Hogwarts. Having been appointed a prefect in her late 7th year she was awarded a shiny prefect badge to display on her 
sweater to the whole of Hogwarts. Though she's pretty self conscious about her duties around her fellow Hufflepuffs and will nervously tuck 
that little button in her bag around them and will often throw away those much needed detention slips just to please her peers. She finds herself 
still being a bit of a goof even if she's suppose to be setting some sort of example. She spends her time collecting chocolate 
frog cards and taking care of her pet rat Magellan

beep beep victory's hairstyle will awlays mimic my irl hair lmao
