I’ve been a part of the community since 2018. I took periods of months through 2019 off, however am committed to stick to SBS for some time now.


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


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


(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
 List Rules below:
  1. No Fail roleplay.
    • You are to hold a standard and play the character you’ve created for the server as long as it abides by all server rules. Not following server rules while playing a character is considered Fail RP. Eg- Fail RP can be a character name, Class teaching non-curriculum subjects, Voldemort teaching class,  refusing to obey RP leaders, ext.
  2. Disrespectful, hateful and offensive behavior or speech towards others.
    • Showing disrespect or being directly spiteful towards someone using offensive words being; slang, racism, sexism, cussing or the use of hostile language towards another individual. 
  3. No random deathmatch.
    • Attempting to, inciting others to, or utilizing attack spells, sweps or tools to cause damage or the death of another individual who’re not revealed or have a cause of death. Eg: Verdimillious, Werewolf, slappers. You should also know not to attack the same ‘group’, being a light force you do not attack other light forces and vice versa for dark forces.
  4. Obey Staff and roleplay leaders.
    • Obeying staff so that you do not break/stretch rules, be given warnings or having something explained to you so that you may not break rules in the future for serious punishment. Obeying roleplay leaders, eg - Voldemort commanding the dark forces to perform a reasonable task for them and they refuse. This could get the player removed from the job. Unless the order goes against server / job rules.
  5. No mass free spelling.
    • Any/all individuals are required to follow this rule. No one should be mass free-spelling any spell that directly causes/afflicts negative effects on other individuals. This includes stupefy. This can be mostly handled by prefects when albe, staff intervention when required for non-arrestable jobs.
  6. No metagaming.
    • The utilization of outside information your character wouldn’t know in-character. This would include knowing the identity of a snatcher when they’re not revealed. Another example would be if a player has transformed into an animagus and you did not see this transformation, you wouldn’t unless stated otherwise know this is anything but an animal.
  7. No microphone / chat spam.
    • Spamming either the microphone/chat with nonsense repeatedly/to cause disruption over a short-time. This can include playing music, screaming, chat spamming messages.
  8. Owlposts are for significant roleplay purposes.
    • Using owlpost (/op) should be done for roleplay purposes only, eg- Activating PTS by professor, selling/buying students, AOS/DOS or other prefect duties. Eg: Do not owlpost ‘Party at Hagrids’,
  9. No ERP (erotic roleplay).
    • Utilizing chat or the microphone to create/suggest elicit sounds that promote sexual behaviors/favors. This includes performing sexual gestures with character movements and inciting sex in the bathrooms
  10. Do not avoid the AFK system / Exploits/bathrooms.
    • Make sure you’re always at your screen when on the server whilst playing otherwise you face a chance to be kicked either by a mod or the AFK system, abusing this system so you’re not automatically kicked. This is as an exploit which is against the rules, exploiting known exploits on the server is bannable and depending on the exploit can warrant serious punishment.
(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server -
A minge is to describe a player who is disruptive to the servers status quo. They’re on to break server rules and not contribute to SBS - Hogwarts roleplay in any fashion. This can mostly be dealt with by prefects if they’re not following simple rules such as ‘freespelling’ or ‘mic-spam’ but if continuous and or more strict rules are broken this can warrant moderator interception to handle the situation.


(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) -
I would like to become staff so I may assist other staff members or when they're not on to help protect the immersive aspect of SBS - Hogwarts and make sure the rules are being followed. I have respect for the staff and players that assist with making this possible and wish to stretch out a hand and offer assistance so this may continue.


(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -
While making the thread “Do I have enough experience” it has come to my attention that staff should apart from handling staff requests also be actively enforcing what SBS - Hogwarts is, roleplay by prefecting or playing the professor // assisting to help engage the server more. I do understand this cannot always be possible but having those interactions would be impactful. 


(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
My timezone? Though seriously to answer this question I believe SBS has great moderators and whoever they choose is great in their own regard. I wouldn’t put myself above or below them but on equal footing. I believe I can make impactful decisions to better the server. My timezone sees very little moderation and I am looking to help bridge this coverage gap.


(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -
I’ve not been staff on any Gmod servers previously/currently. I have however held a staff position on a minecraft RP server which lasted over 18 months (where my time went in late 2018--2019) In this community I assisted with growing the server through videos/music/setting up events/community interactions and enforcing rules. I am no longer active in this community. 


(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 not.


(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? -
On my previous staff application (from 2018) I wrote this:
“Both sides of the team are important in their own right, to decide which is greater shouldn’t be something to be considered as they both hold the values of the server and encourage people to play. The staff to help enforce the rules and values the server puts to uphold by the staff and the players to keep the server running.”


I still believe this statement.


(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) -
Out of everything i’ve seen i’ll rate myself a solid 8. I still have things to work on which I am sure will improve.


(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? -
You ask the player to give you a moment while you re-check over the rule compendium. If you’re unable to find a resolution in the rules you can ask another moderator for assistance either in the @ chat or on the staff discord. This might take a bit to get the final verdict but it’s best to always be transparent with the players and not give them an answer you’re unsure of/false.


(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.


(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) -
https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=81 - 2018. They decided to pick other staff over myself.

Lately I've spent a lot of time playing with and getting to know Evark. Some people are going to only know him as the "Gnome Tax Collector," and this is fine. He's also been on prefecting jobs quite frequently and teaches. 

He has a good understanding of the rules, apparent in his app here. He has a kind demeanor and good personality, a great person to work with.

Uniquely, Evark has an acute understanding on how the server functions and how to accomplish things- which would make him a super valuable asset to the team with his perspective. He is also a very creative and responsive individual- we bounce ideas off each other a lot. 

Not only has he proven himself to be resourceful- but he has also been sharing in knowledge and in a creative way (whereas others may hoard this information). Here's just another one of the reasons why this app stands out above all others: his potion guide is now the go-to guide for finding ingredients https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=11930

He brings community members together to help collaborate on ideas as well, and gives everyone a chance-new and old. 
He also has a unique ability to breathe life into any situation, which cannot be ignored. People naturally tend to follow him because he's a breath of fresh air. 

He takes all feedback seriously, never has there been a time where I thought he wasn't listening. 

Activity: 
His activity is off the charts in comparison to the average staff member, so this should be noted as well
 [Image: Ob6tTvd.png]

In combination with considering all of the above, if his desire is to become staff- I do believe that he has earned himself a chance at trial moderator having seen the positive impact he's brought to the server over the past month.  

If it wasn't already obvious: I support Evark's application to become a moderator.

Evark is a guy that truly wants to help people. He is a easy to speak to and if you got question he will help you. My experience with Evark has been good and I don't see why he shouldn't get a chance to be a Moderator. I have not really seen him do a prefect meeting or hosting a GH, but I know what that guy is capable of and I believe he will be an asset to the team. Good luck with your application man.

If you define yourself by the power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess…then you have nothing.

Joking aside, he is a great guy and knows the rules and prefects.

When I think of you Evark, I honestly just remember you playing as that Gnome custom. I haven't seen you reinforce the server rules, prefect, teach classes nor host great halls, but maybe that's just me not paying enough attention. I can see that you do understand the main server rules, and I know for a fact that you're active. Neutral for now.

edit:
From the past few days I have in fact seen you prefect, host great halls and teach a few classes (: Big +1.

Hey Et, forgive me on my phone and might not be formatted correctly. 

I usually teach/prefect when the server isn't peak hours since prefect and professor jobs have been taken, though! On the occasion I do teach you'll see me in Herbology or Transfiguration as these are my preferred classes. I have been writing out lesson plans so I'll be looking to teach in more active hours very soon!

To playing on the gnomed custom, you're right! I do play on it a bit though to that I'll say it's my new baby custom and I want to give it some love and test it out to see if it requires balancing! Though as stated above hopefully you'll see me prefect/teach more as I alternate more regularly.

Also thank you to the other replies for supporting the app! 

Hope this helped! 
Thank you
- me.
(I'm going to sleep now zzz)

I agree with what Etlenor says I also want to add this but personally I find you getting really defensive when someone breaks a rule towards you or someone doesn't know a rule. You'll instantly link the compendium and show them where they're wrong instead of explaining it to them even if it's a simple rule. 

Edit: I've seen Evark do prefect meetings and take on more RP leadership roles so I'll change my vote to +1

When I see you on the server, your roleplaying skills far exceed enforcing server rules. I would’ve loved to see the creativity come from you by taking the route of gamemaker. 

Your activity is great and your leadership in playing these higher end roles are definitely what pops out at me. The timing of submitting your application might affect it a bit, but I hope you get whatever you choose to seek.
