Jim B Moongoose Mod Application #1 (EU)

#1
(1.) What is your SteamID? - 
STEAM_0:0:72767734

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - 
Jim B Moongoose

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be 7th to apply.) - 
Prestige 5 Year 4

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

7am - 1pm CST, however my playtime can change.
 
(3.) How old are you? - 
19

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - 
I first joined the server in July 2019, I discovered after I randomly joined a friends game to surprise them and catch up since we hadn't spoken in a while and I've been here since.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - 
I have always been active on the server apart from a few short breaks to prevent being burnt out as most people do. SBS Hogwarts is the only Gmod server that I have been regularly playing on, I haven't played any other servers since early last year and Gmod is the main game I have been playing.

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

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


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

 List Rules below:

 1: No FailRP -
FailRP is doing something that your character would not do or has no valid RP reason to be doing. An example of this would be teaching a class as voldermort or purposley committing suicide as a student.

 2: Be Respectful -
Be kind to eachother and refrain from saying anything that is disrespectful, keep negative comments about others to yourself. All Racial slurs or homphobic comments (hatespeech) that are made are taken very seriously and often come with a more serious punishment.

 3: No RDM -
RDM stands for Random Death Match, you should not to kill anyone without a valid RP reason to do so even if you see it as an act of self-defence, roles such as students should not be killing each other. An example of RDM would be an Auror killing an unrevealed snatcher.

4: Obey Staff and RP Leaders -
You should always obey what staff and RP leaders are telling you to do unless they are telling you to do something that breaks a rule. If an RP leader is telling you to do something that you find questionable be sure to ask an available member of staff to ensure what you are being told to do isn't against the rules.

 5: No Massive freespelling -
You should not be casting spells with out a valid reason to do so, especially damage spells such as verdimilious or mostro. An example of freespelling would be a student continuously casting stupefy at other players without a valid reason.
 
6: No Metagaming -
The use of information that your RP character would have no way of knowing while IC (In Character) is classed as metagaming. An example of metagaming would be using information from the OOC (Out Of Character) chat or other platforms for communication such as discord to save someone who has been snatched and allowing it to influence your IC actions in various other ways.

 7: No Micspam/chat spam -
Playing music, singing or continuously making silly unnecessary noises through your microphone can be classified as micspam, also repeating the same phrases or sentences in the text chat whether it be IC (In character) or OOC (Out of character) is considered chat spam and neither is allowed.

 8: Advert is for significant roleplay purposes only -
Advert/owlpost should only be used when there is a valid RP reason to do so. For example a prefect or professor putting out a DOS on a student would be a valid RP reason. Calling for a staff member using this feature would be classed as a fail advert.
 
9: No ERP -
ERP stands for Erotic Roleplay and refers to any inappropriate sexual behaviour or references whether it be done using the voice or text communication, this is not allowed and an example of what not to do would be talking about intercourse or making sexual noises (moaning) down your microphone.

 10: Do not avoid the AFK system or map exploit -
There is a system in place that automatically kicks a player if they haven't moved for 20 minutes to prevent people taking advantage of the XP system, doing anything to bypass this would be classed as avoiding or exploiting the AFK system and this is not allowed. Also attempting to clip outside of the maps boundaries intentionally is not allowed.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - 
 A "minge" is someone who comes onto the server with no intentions to RP and aims to break rules and "have fun" at the expense of others, often ruining the experience for others on the server.

(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - 
 I have been a member of this community for just over 9 months now and I have very much enjoyed being apart of it, done my fair share of prefecting and teaching lessons (usually as the muggles professor). Helping better the experience for other players is something I would enjoy, being apart of the effort to stop trolls ruining the server and helping out new players where I can is something I would like to do and would very much enjoy doing.

(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - 
I feel that there is always room to improve, and personally I think I could improve on and expand my knowledge of the custom jobs on the server (regarding their rulesets) and make myself more familiar with a few other rules in the compendium.

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - 
 I am in a timezone that doesn't really have any staff (EU) and it would take more pressure off staff from other timezones that may come on just to ensure that it's covered, while also maintaining their own timezone. This would also better the experience of EU players as there would be more staff available. One thing that may set me apart from other applicants is my experience in life and on the server itself, I can be more understanding of specific situations and be able to get a grasp of more difficult situations quickly. I may also be able to provide a different prespective to situations when needed. I also feel that I would be fair when passing judgement on a incidents.

(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - 
 I have not.

(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 been banned from SBS Hogwarts before (They were all a while ago so forgive me if the dates are off)

July 2019 - Harassment and Attempted RDM (3 days) - https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=7450

July 2019 - Harassment (6 hours)

October 2019 - Capturing student from the loading docks as an auror - (3 days) - https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=9059

January 2020 - Disrupting class (20 mins)

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - 
 In my eyes both the server staff and the players are equally important both are needed for a community to flourish. Without the players the server would die out and would eventually go on to shutdown and without the staff the players would be able to do what they want and it would be a very toxic environment.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) - 
Patience - 9
Response time - 8
Leadership - 8
Knowledge - 7
Communication - 8
Friendliness - 10

 
(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - 
If I did not know how to deal with a situaion I would refer to the compendium or ask an available staff member for some guidance. 

(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? - 
Yes I understand.

(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) -

Video is just from a little over a week ago with you free spelling mostro, and everte on a Professor job. That's all I've seen from you. I haven't seen you since then, that's not a very good first impression.
Also it looks like you just came back from a break.

It's not like that video is old, it was last week.

Gonna be a hard pass from me.
Constantly disrupts class (comes in random classes as muggle studies professor and intentionally ruins lectures even after several warnings), freespells as unarrestable jobs, doesn't take anything seriously which is fine for anyone who's not going for a moderator job. Look at any one of your vids and you can see everything I just mentioned for yourself. This is another application where I don't understand why the person applying even wants it. Have never stood out in any positive way. Open to have my mind changed but for now, put in a way you can understand...
DOUBLE DELUXE -1 WITH A SIDE OF YOU'LL NEVER GET MOD AND A LARGE ORDER OF YOU'RE NOT FUNNY

Update:
Below are the links to his vids for anyone who's curious. FYI, not very smart to upload videos of you micspamming, trolling, ruining classes, and rdming before you apply for a moderator position.

Neutral to +1

Although you may have done some things previously that have been questionable, lately you've been pretty active and helpful from what I've seen. When perfecting, you dont go power crazy and are very respectful. You also teach a lot and the lessons are fun and engaging. Seems like you have a good grasp of the rules too. All in all, I think you would be a fair staff member although maybe some more time might be needed to show people your potential. Good luck :)

#7
I feel like Jim would be an good addition to the Staff Team on Hogwarts because he knows the rules well, he has hosted many great hall's, he has hosted prefect meetings and he is also a prefect whenever I get on the server, and when he is on the prefect job, he is always making sure classes are running fine and he shows new players where there class is, and another thing that has come to my attention is his leadership, his leadership is also good, and this has been proven by him hosting great hall's and prefect meetings etc. Yes, he might have a past and might have made mistakes, but no one's perfect. Yes, he has recently took a break but, since he has been back, his activity has been amazing. I think he deserves a chance to be a moderator, no one will know how well he does unless he gets a chance, people deserve a chance to prove their value.

I am going to go with a +1. He has changed ever since he first joined the server, and he has been helpful to players on the server along with everything else that has been stated above. I think he deserves a chance.

Best of Luck with your Application, Jim!

I have infact recently returned from a 2 week break, however I plan on being very active and have been since my return. I have a questionable past and have done some mingey things, but I plan on turning this around and have been. Hopefully you'll see those changes if you see me around anytime soon.

Thank you for your feedback!

I've never really been warned for disrupting classes apart from the one time I recieved a 20 minute ban back in January. However I do see how my actions could have ruined some people's experiences, which was never the intention and since back in Feburary I have not disrupted any classes nor do I plan on it. Hope to see you around the server and possibly change your mind.

EDIT: As my previous reply to perseus said, I'm fully aware that I have done some mingey things and I am changing that around and cleaning up my act. I could have easily removed those videos from youtube, however I didn't because I aim to be completely open with how I have been in the past and I'm sure after people see those videos they will be able see how my attitude has changed over time.

Thank you for your feeback, I will continue to work on my behaviour!

This Staff app reminds me of my first one, @Jim B Moongoose Everyone makes mistakes and anyone can recover from them. If past behavior was the tell-all for if someone is fit for staff then I wouldn't be a staff member rn.

With all that said The evidence was quite recent (I only watch perseus') I must worry about it. I haven't ever had any problems with you myself and you've been a pretty chill guy.

For now, I'll give you a Neutral and I'll stay on the lookout for you.

#10
I only recently started back playing on here but I've seen you on the server a lot as a prefect, helping people around and showing them to class, one of the good prefects, I don't know you all that well but you seem like a decent guy who knows a lot about the rules and I see you've spent a quite a bit of time here.
