(1a) What name and or alias are you most commonly known as within the SBS community? - Makiel Hound
(1b.) What is your age? - 21

(2.) Which volunteer community staff position is your application for? - Hogwarts Server Manager (Anything I can do to help the server run)
(3.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our community and how did you initially discover it? - I believe it was around October 2021. I was searing for a Harry Potter community and found this :)
(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? - I understand I could be let go at any time for any reason.

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? - I have stayed active for months, and I will give any staff member my person phone number/ social media to check in if I vanish ( which I will not) for any reason. 
(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 love this server. I bought V.I.P. 30 minutes into discovering it.
I did not buy V.I.P. in 30 minutes because I "knew" I would stay on this server, I had no clue if I would or not. I donated because I respected the work you put into making this amazing Harry Potter server.

Since that day, I cannot count how many amazing nights I have had playing on Hogwarts RP.

 What you built means a lot to me, and I hope that shows through this application.

(6.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - Slowing down. I start to rush when I have multiple tasks to complete (relates to my Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
(6a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
  Taking my time in every task, even ones I do not like.
(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? - I am caring, attentive, and dependable. This server means a lot to me, and I want to help maintain it. 
(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) - No I have not previously maintained a game server staffing position.

(9) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) - 7/10 (I am young, there is so I can improve on)

(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 - I have sat in for a few different situations (both in this server, and dark RP servers). 

From what I understand, the main idea is sticking to the rules the server creator has outlined. This being said, do not abuse or misuse a staffing privilege. You are saying "Thank you" to the server host by helping him or her manage it, not trying to run or control the server yourself.

For an example: I was just recently accused of mishandling a situation by a few other students. I was playing as "Heir of Ravenclaw". Standing in Potions class, I see a wizard spamming a green colored spell. I walk up and say "Hello, no Free spelling please". He responded with "It is a plant growing spell, you are seriously going to send me to DT for plants? CORRUPT PREFECT", continued to yell that, while spamming plants across the classroom. I then sent him to detention, and quickly posted "/op RFD FS"

(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) - Disregarded as this is my first volunteer staff application.

I personally don't think you're the right fit for such a position.

Also, don't really know you too well, might just be me But.... depending on what I see for the next few day's, I may change my vote.

I'm sorry, but the Hogwarts server manager position isn't open. But I assume you maybe meant to apply for Hogwarts moderator or gamemaker? If so, you can fill out an application for that here!

So this application will have to be closed.
