JACK'S STAFF MANAGER APPLICATION
Thank you for any positive feedback or criticism, it is appreciated.

(1.) What is your SteamID and your Steam URL? -
STEAM_0:1:153611348 | https://steamcommunity.com/id/calsid/

(1a) What is your most common name for the SBS community? -
PFC 'Josh' Grange | Ensign Reagan and Jack Tolkien-Grayson
 
(1b.) How old are you? -
I am currently 16 years of age.

(2.) What position are you applying for? -
I am applying for the Halo Staff Manager position.
 
(3.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? -
I joined the community more than a year ago and I joined the Halo Server about 5 or 6 months ago, I believe.

(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? -
Yes I understand this, I wouldn't expect anything else as Community Staff must be a lot more active in order to get things done.
 
(5.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) -
Right I am going to go into detail about my self, I am someone that truly loves sport, especially Football, it's my hobby. I also like to lead things, it's my strong point, I know how to lead and If I were to be accepted as Staff Manager, I'll be more than willing to step up and act as an professional Staff Manager, I'd make sure to be a Staff Manager that is approachable at all times and a Staff Manager that would answer anyone's questions. Another thing that I like is Garry's Mod, the main servers I go on is the SBS HWRP Server and SBS Halo RP Server. It's the only servers I find interesting because I see them going places, well they are already going places. However. I have recently resigned from the Hogwarts RP Server so you'll more than likely see less from me on that server and more from me on Halo.
 

(6.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -
I feel like I need to improve on my confidence and awareness more, I am improving on these two skills everyday but they still need improving from my perspective and I am sure others could say the same.

(7.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
I have a lot of experience leading things. My communication and leadership skills aren't bad in my opinion as I have lead many things, I have lead staff teams before, I have managed servers and I have mainly done moderating throughout my time on Garry's Mod and I have also done Gamemaking (Event Making) as well throughout my time on Garry's Mod. Ultimately, I have experience in Moderating, Gamemaking and Managing.

(8.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -

Present/Non-present servers on Garry's Mod

SBS HaloRP Gamemaker - Present.
SBS HogwartsRP Moderator - Not present.
CityRP Gaming Senior-Admin - Not present.
ApexGaming Super Admin - Not present.
H.D Gaming Gamemaster - Not present.
FreeRP Head Of Staff - Not present.
Insomnia Gaming Super Admin - Not present.


(9.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) -
Patience 9.5/10 -
When it things tend to take a while, I make sure to remain patient, being unpatient isn't too good because it can make you lose your temper easily. This has been improved since my last Staff Manager Application.

Professionalism 9/10 -
When it comes to important things, I make sure to remain professional, especially within staff meetings and when Moderating/or Gamemaking.  This has been improved since my last Staff Manager Application.

Leadership 9/10 -
I will admit this has improved massively, I know how to lead teams as I have before and I have experience in doing so, so this will be nothing new to me, but I have applied to make the Staff Team go in the right direction and to make useful changes within the team.

Fairness 10/10 -
I always remain fair in all situations, being unfair is just bias and isn't appropriate or professional. I do not take sides at all, I always remain neutral in serious situations.

Maturity 9/10 -
I am mature when I must be but I will admit I can joke about but when it comes to serious situations or times, I make sure to remain mature.

Co-Operation 9/10 -
I get along with people easily, especially new people I meet, I like to talk to new people and get to know them. I, personally, get a long with many people within this community.

Ability to work under-pressure 8.5/10 -
I will admit this has improved, I am now able to work more sufficently in tought situations and I also try my best to find the best outcome in tough situations. This has been improved since my last Staff Manager Application.

Teamwork 9/10 -
I like to work as a team, and that's partly the reason why I am applying for Staff Manager, I'd like to work with the staff team further and would like to make useful changes to the staff team and make sure the Staff Team is lead in the right direction.

Confidence 8.5/10 -
This has improved, over the past few weeks/months, it's improved ever since I've become a Moderator on the HWRP Server and a Gamemaker on the HaloRP Server. This has been improved since my last Staff Manager Application.

 

(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) -

Another Applicant was selected.

(11.) (Optional) Provide examples of situations you would handle in the position you are applying for here and how you would handle them. -

Gamemakers
The rank Gamemaker wouldn't be given out so easily, I'd expect to see good leadership and creativity from those who wish to apply. Gamemaker  is a rank with a lot of permissions so I'd require those who wish to apply to be trusted and to be have a good repuation as well as good leadership skills and a creative mind to become a Gamemaker (Of course those
who are willing to learn and truly would want to become a Gamemaker would be given a chance, everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves.) However, if more Gamemakers were needed desperately, I would allow a member of the server who wishes to become a Gamemaker  to do an trial event first and see how that goes, if it went well I would consider giving that person a Gamemaker position but if the event wasn't up to standard but wasn't too bad then I'd give that person a Helper position. This was put in place by Lee and I would keep this in place as I think it's a good idea. I'd also expect Gamemakers to work together and I'd expect Gamemakers to have events well planned out, but of course I'd like them to ask other staff for help if it was necessary.

Overall, from someone who applied for Gamemaker and wants to become a Gamemaker, I would want to see Good Leadership and RP from that player as well as good activity.

Moderators
If more Moderators were desperately needed then I would ask players who I think was good for the position to apply for Moderator and I would then speak to other Staff Members about that person in a Staff Meeting and if they had good Feedback from the Staff Team then we would vote on that Applicant and if the votes came out positive then that Applicant would be Accepted. Moderators would be able to overlook Gamemakers (making sure they aren't breaking the rules as they are still Staff and are still expected to follow the rules, no excuse needed.)

Inactive Staff
This is by far one of the hardest struggles for a Staff Manager. If a Staff Member became inactive for no particular reason and didn't let me know about the reason why they was inactive, I would give that Staff Member a message saying that there activity isn't too good and would expect improvement. I would see if there activity improved from that point, if it didn't improve without them being on LOA/Low-Activity then I would give them a warning saying they need to improve, and if it still wasn't improved then they would more than likely be warned saying if their activity doesn't improve then it'll have to result in a forced resignation or a demotion.

Under Performing Staff
If Staff weren't performing too well, then I would speak to that staff member in either text messages or voice chat, I would see how it went from there and if they still weren't performing too well then I'd issue that staff member a warning to perform better, if they were still performing poorly then I would decide what happens next, it would more than likely be a suspension and if it still didn't improve then unfortunately, it would result in a forced resignation or a demotion but the demotion would be discussed within the staff meeting, with the Staff Team.

Staff Time Requirement
I'd put in a system where staff members would at least have to spend 1/2 hours a day on the server. (This wouldn't apply to those on LOA/Low-Activity) This would increase the activity within the Staff Team. If Staff wasn't meeting their time requirement then I'd speak to that staff member and then would see how it goes, if it doesn't improve then I'd issue that staff member a warning and if it still didn't improve then I'd speak to the whole staff team about what happens next but the punishment would more than likely be a suspension or a forced resignation. (This would only occur if they wasn't meeting their requirement for a long period of time.) Staff know what they signed up and activity is vital, and this time requirement is vital because if it isn't meant then it would mean, that staff member is inactive and I have put an example of Inactive Staff above so it would go under that category.

However, I wouldn't force Staff to be active but I would encourage Staff to come on each day.

Report on a Staff Member
Reports can be made for various reasons, one being staff abuse. Look below, underneath the Staff Abuse category, to see what would happen for a staff member abusing. A report could also be made on a staff member for them having a negative attitude towards a player or another staff member, if they was evidence to prove this, a talking to would be appropriate but if it continued then warnings would be given out and possible suspensions and maybe a demotion, depending on how regular it becomes and how severe it is.

Staff Leaking
Staff Leaking is definitely a hard thing to spot within a Staff Team and is something that a Staff Manager should deal with as soon as possible because if Staff Information is leaked and no one knows who it is as there are many people on the team then it becomes something important. If something vital and important was leaked from Staff, well if anything was leaked from Staff, I would discuss it within the Staff Meeting and would ask that person to come forward, if they came forward they wouldn't get a punishment as harsh but if they didn't come forward, and lied, then a harsher punishment would be issued. Staff should be able to be trusted, if a staff member can't be trusted then being on the Staff Team isn't for them. (Of course punishments like warnings and suspensions would be put in place first for a staff member that has been found leaking, but it depends what has been leaked.)

Staff Abuse
If I saw a Staff Member abusing their powers I would take action depending on the severity.
  • If the abuse was severe the staff member would be issued a long suspension or a possible demotion, it would depend how severe the abuse was. The abuse of the staff member would be discussed within the Staff Meeting.
  • If the abuse was bitter (not too severe but not too bad), the staff member would receive a possible suspension or warning and again, this would be discussed within the staff meeting as staff members deserve to know what happened with another staff member.
  • If the abuse was not severe and was little, I would issue that staff member a warning saying for them not to do it again.
Ultimately, a staff member shouldn't be abusing and should be trusted with their powers/privileges, if staff powers aren't used appropriately, then it would be dealt with seriously as staff powers should only be used for important/needed situations.

For example, Gamemaker powers should only be used when doing an event, doing Passive RP or doing something that involves Gamemaking. Moderator powers should only be used when taking a sit, doing something that involved discipline and whitelisting someone to a rank they was accepted to or was promoted to or when doing something that their job entails. Admin powers should only be used when Gamemaking, Moderating or Administrating. Also, Admins should act more responsible as they are a higher rank and have a higher authority and  are able to mentor, overlook and help Gamemakers/Moderators. Ultimatelty, Admins should make sure Gamemakers/Moderators are making the right choice and are going to be successful within the Staff Team. (Of course, I would make sure to do the same as that is what a Staff Manager should do.)

Overall, Staff Powers are tools and are not toys, they should be used in the right way and should be used judiciously.

Honestly Jack would be perfect for this position, only thing I'm concerned with is him, how he said he was resigning and now he's applying for Staff Manager. It's probably because of maybe the mood he was in? I don't know, but I'd appreciate it if you'd (@Jack Grayson-Tolkien) tell me what that was about.

Given your history with being a liar, I'm going to have to -1 this app.  Trust is one of the most important factors of being on a team, let alone leading one.  If you can't be trusted to tell the truth as a member of the team, then I certainly wouldn't trust you to tell the truth as the leader of one. I've also never seen you take any kind of leadership role, whether it be in RP or not.  Not to mention your activity as a moderator on Hogwarts was never great.  Which indicates to me that you don't take your obligations very seriously.  Some of the guidelines you say you would set into place as SM, you didn't even follow as a moderator yourself which is hypocritical to say the least.

If I'm being honest, this just looks like another attempt at a powergrab.

Reggie said it all.

I myself  always thought about you as one sneaky guy who's in solely for the power, and sweet talk and do anything to get it, and once in a position of power show the true self.

In my opinion, you're one of the fakest person in this community.

No thanks.

Just to sum some things up, throughout my time as Staff on SBS, I have never abused, from my perspective, yes, I have lied once but that was my bad and I have learnt from it. Also, my activity on Hogwarts, it decreased for the last two weeks before my resignation, and the reason why I was inactive was due to some problems, which I will not say on here and regarding my leadership, I have been leadership roles on Hogwarts, Reggie, but that shouldn't count on Halo as Halo is different to Hogwarts but as I said, I have been leadership roles and have lead things but you must've not been there to see it.

Also, regarding the powergrab, I am not doing this for a powergrab and respectfully, I am sure you all can get over that now because I've not abused what so ever as Staff on SBS and am not looking for more power because if I was, I wouldn't be Staff, I am not that kind of person.

Thank you for your feedback guys.

Big oof same reasons mate just do want to add that you don't take criticism well you do come across as someone who just wants more power and don't care really about what happens on server unless it effects to you. So Cal I will give you a big boy -1 for what I have witnessed and experience with you in the time I actually seen you active when I wasn't banned or breaking from server.

Every action or past you had be it on hogwarts or halo factors in with how important this position is. Think of it like character evidence.

Reggie mentions it and all of it is 100% relevant because people should know you as you were and are. Have you been known to lie specifically within the hogwarts community? Yes. Activity was questionable for real reasons or not, factors into these applications. My experience of you whenever I saw you on the hogwarts server was just overall average at best and as Reggie said, i also never saw you adopt a leadership role.

I cant give support for someone to go after such an important role that is really involved when to me that person didnt excell at any factor (also taking into account votes on your other applications) Ive heard more negatives/meh's then positivies about yourself from people which isnt what I want to hear or see from a staff manager applicant.

Manfred, I appreciate that you are being honest in your vote and feedback but I've never met you or even interacted with you on the server? This could be due to timezones and regarding what you said, which is agreeing with Reggie, that was in the past and I know I shouldn't have lied once, but I do regret that and have learnt from that and as I said previously I am not doing this for power, throughout my time on SBS as Staff, I have never abused, but have made mistakes that I regret, there's no denying that. Also, regarding the RP Leadership roles on Hogwarts, I was them now and then (quite a bit.) but you must've not been there to see me lead and I don't think that should affect my Application for Staff Manager on Halo as Halo is a lot different to Hogwarts, but I'm not saying my past should be forgotten about, because that's up to those, who wish to bring it back up and that's fine, everyone has their own opinion. I can assure you that I do take thing serious when needed to, especially within a Staff Team. Overall, I regret what I did in the past (lying once.) but I have made sure not to do it again, mistakes happen and regarding my activity, for the last 2 weeks before my resignation, I wasn't active due to problems and that's the reason why I took an LOA.

Regarding the votes on both this Application and others, you mentioned that I have received mainly negative votes but respectfully, I am going to have to disagree with you there as many have supported me on my other Applications, you can go have a look if you'd like, yes one was mainly full of negative votes but that was because it was locked early and others didn't have time to vote on it. Most of these votes is because of my past on Hogwarts (lying once.) and yes I shouldn't have lied and I do, truly, regret that and have learnt lesson and I did apologise to the acting Staff Manager at that time.

Also, regarding the comment that I am fake (Black Hole's comment.), I am not fake what so ever, I do not put a nice act on, I am nice because, generally, I am a nice person. Yes, I do have my moments, but who doesn't? It's normal for a person to do so, everyone has feelings and emotions and respectfully, I do not know who you are? So I'm sure we have never interacted before but please correct me if I'm wrong. What you said is your opinion and I can't do much about that.

Thank you for your vote, and feedback, Manfred, and to the others that replied.
