Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:1:176885160


(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? -
 
Walden

(1b.) What is your age? -

Old Enough

(2.) Which volunteer community staff position is your application for? -

Hogwarts RP Server Manager

(3.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our community and how did you initially discover it? -

2018, through Garry's Mod itself. 

(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 do.

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -

Unlike other people that are applying, I play the server for fun and I have a great time playing. By applying I am gonna ensure that everyone else also has fun while playing, the position doesn't lure me because of the power it gives me, but the opportunities and the lots of things I can do in such position that can hopefully help the community as a whole!
 
(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) -

 I am mostly known as Walden, I am a reformed minge that used to play the SBS Servers just to troll and make everyone have a bad time, with time I saw the consequences of what I did and tried to improve. I can happily say that I changed, I haven't got a warn for rule breaking in 5 months and that itself is a proof that I changed. Most people will consider this a joke app but it really isn't.
I have lots of experiences at managing servers (As listed in Question 8) and I feel like that is something really important specially for such a high position at a huge community like this.

(6.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -

Toxicity is something I need to improve, although I said I am reformed, there were still a couple of incidents which showed my "before" self and that annoys me, but that won't affect my staffing as during the period of any staff role that I take, I am completely unbiased and I wouldn't change my attitude towards anyone due to past drama.

(6a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -

Communication, I feel like communication is key when working in a community. That's because in a community everyone matters and by communicating we can hear everyone's opinion and discuss between each other to work for a better environment in the community and a better flow of how things go in it. I feel like I need to improve that and hopefully I can do that. 

(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? -

As I stated question (8), I have been manager on a multiple number of communities and that helps a lot in any decision taking or any tasks that require experience which is a key for any managing position. I also have a very wide knowledge on Harry Potter Lore and although the server isn't a Serious RP Server, we can't go that far from the Lore as it would take all the sense from the server.

Also the fact that I won the Horcrux Hunter Whitelist from Guy in the Yearly Giveaway, which ensures that I have a very tight connection with Guy and that's essential to have a bond between the Server Manager and the Owner as it is a very high position.

(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 staff on way too many servers to list but I will include the most successful ones in my opinion:
Community Manager: Benjis RP (Closed)
Staff Manager: Excaliburn Network (Current: Server is currently in Development.)
OG Kinfo Gaming: Staff Manager (Closed)
Kinfo Gaming 2.0: General Manager(Current: Server is also currently in Development.)

(9) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -

Patience 7/10 
Organization 6/10
Reaction Times 9/10
Decision Taking 10/10
Overall Skills 9/10

(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 - 
[Image: hfLbIJa.png]
First, I would like to note a couple of things that I would add/change in case I get the position and in case I don't get the position this can be a suggestion for the up coming Server Manager

[Image: 3t6hRLV.png] 
Community Meetings or Community Nights would be held in a specific discord server at a specific date that would be discussed later. The Meeting would consist of both Staff and Members of the community in which they would discuss a certain community issue/suggestion. That would help create a bond between the community and the staff, and also create a more welcoming environment for any members in the community looking to be heard.

Points that could be held in a Community Meeting:

- Discuss and Clarify Server Rules
- Discuss and Clarify Ban Lengths 
- Discuss and Clarify Compendium Changes
- Go over any suggested additions and take opinions
- Clarification on Job Rules or/and Faction Rulesets
- Lookover any unbalanced or  game breaking Rulesets or Compendium Loopholes.
[Image: p7YvACz.png]
In my point of view, the new compendium has way too many flaws and loopholes.
There's way too many unstated rules, and that's a big mistake since the staff members will still punish for those unstated rules, causing many unfair warns/kicks/bans.
That's not on staff hands since their job is to enforce all server rules stated or unstated.
In case I get the position, and even If I don't get the position I will be hoping the upcoming server manager does the same, I would create a new compendium based off the old one filling all the unstated rulesets/rules/job rules and change what should be changed since the compendium is a bit unoptimized.
The new compendium must contain: 

- All Server Rules including all the Grey Area rules with No Exception
- All Job and Custom Job rules with No Exception
- All Faction Rulesets with No Exception
- Updated Name/Prefecting and Owlposting Rules
- Any more suggestion regarding the compendium would be collected during the first Community Meeting.
- Input some corrections on the Hatespeech Rule

(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) -
Since most of my apps were joke apps I will be leaving this Empty
This is totally, but totally not a joke one like all the others

contributes to the problem of dragon PVP- abusing tiny hitboxes on it as clipped below in the campaign video, claims to turn over a new leaf but still does it. 

I can see him in other positions in the community, but specifically server manager of Hogwarts i'm very hesitant





has some good stances otherwise, which is why i'm not an outright -1.

no vote at this time, time will tell if you are just paying lipservice to certain issues or not.

I won't deny that I contributed to the increase in the abuse of Dragon Sweps, along with other members of the community, heck even staff members.

But the thing is, that it was ages ago, and we should always believe in second chances since we all make mistakes, the way I use dragon nowadays is too Loop Bunny Hop and not to dodge hits. Although some may still consider that exploiting or abusing I believe it isn't since it's the same effect as Carpe.

I think the new compendium, and I will add to it if I get the position, needs a section pointing out all the sweps that can be abused and be handled and punished as a rule break until it's fixed.

You were caught advertising your application on the server, you may reapply in a week (with the general length of the manager application process, you will probably be able to reapply before the position is filled)
Denied, Thread Locked
