(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) - 

Right, I'm going to respond to these -1's before it becomes too big of an issue and we have quotes to Oblivion.
1) "I've never seen you on before!" - I'm active during the "dead" time of the server. I also used to play a lot 6 months ago, and even before the prestige system was added. I would also like to note that I would more than likely be Prestige 3 if I did not play as the Headmaster all the time.
2) "Your application looks rushed with little thought / effort!" - My Application is intentionally simple. I take a very quick, and concise, approach to many things in life. I'm not going to waste mine, or Staff, time by having an overly-fluffy, hard to read application. It is designed to bring your eyes to the responses, since that's what's important here. You'd be surprised at how much effort and time can go into making something simple and legible.
3) "You've only played for 4 days!" - Wrong. Just objectively wrong. I've had several names on the server, and as stated above, used to play a lot more long ago. I left for awhile because of a name issue.
4) "I never see you enforcing the rules!" - Clearly, you're not going to class. Literally all I do is play as the HM, and I am in every single class helping to moderate both the Student, and Professor. If someone is breaking a rule, I promptly warn them, and then DOS if they are out of line. For Professors, I make sure they drop HW / Spells for everyone, or teach them how to do so. As for Prefecting, I have a terrible computer that lags, quite literally, every three-fifteen seconds. It is borderline impossible for me to properly Prefect without being targeted because I'm so bad at it. So, I allow others who choose to be a Prefect to do it for me, since I am incapable of doing so. Even then, I occasionally Prefect if it gets THAT bad. Trust me, I've tried.  
5) "You're never teaching classes!" - I stay as the HM so that, RP wise, I can "Hire" Professors to educate the students. I usually end up giving a few thousand galleons to whoever switches. Technically speaking, I am not required to do anything, but I do anyways.

-1 this app looks rushed af with little effort put into it. I've seen you say some questionable stuff and I'm gonna be honest I've only recently seen you around on the server

Edit: According to Game tracker (I checked quite a few of your steam names) you've only started connecting recently.

EDIT 2: Your behavior in ooc recently and response to all the negative responses on your app is unacceptable you started a mass spam message that resulted in 2 people getting banned as well as you and other people kicked. After it was over told the owner "It had to be done" I don't want to see you on the team until you improve your behavior and your rule breaking

Jeez, poor Jacob.

Anyway, as stated by Jerome, you’ve barely returned and you definitely have areas where you could improve your app.

Play the server frequently, get to know people, try your best to stand out and play roles such as professors and prefects. Showing your value as a potential staff member in-game is a huge step in the right direction for an appeal, so try to get to that point.

Until then, -1. Spend more time on the server.

I would spend more time on server getting to know the players and more time on your app, maybe skim through the apps of people who are currently mods to gauge the level of effort you need to put into your app. 

a few days of activity is not enough to show any consistency, peoples votes may change in the future if you show consistency. Additionally, you have 0 player reports out about rulebreaks that you perceive while you do play during prefect law. As a moderator you're going to be responsible for upholding the rules. Your app here shows no depth of understanding the rules.

Prefecting makes up a bulk of your admin calls and sits, I haven't seen you do much prefecting or any prefect meetings (people looking to get trial mod usually do great halls to tell server rules and prefect meetings). 

You also like to play the headmaster role a lot, who is able to substitute teach. I haven't seen much substitute teaching or even swapping to the teacher from you. 

edit: HOWEVER, I have noticed you do call for teachers when needed, which is something that staff need to do as you won't be able to teach as staff most of the time (you will have to sacrifice your rp), so this reflects positively.

My feedback will be very mixed as I continue to update it. You certainly have a lot to improve on, and I can appreciate how brave you are being by posting this app, but most of all remember to not hold any biases against people who voted negatively even if their feedback isn't immediately helpful, and remember you can always update your original post (it's a good idea to make a message at the top or bottom if you choose to update)

Also you should probably cut down on ooc drama (spontaneously saying #Trump2020, trying to be an rp authority, etc)

Edit: have seen you spam OOC then try to get under the skin of the owner. You seem to think your presence on server is a commodity that is being wasted by not being awarded a trial, staff haven't even gotten a chance to review your app at the sunday meeting yet! Then you keep talking about how you should be staff in ooc.
Hard -1 for now.

These are just my comments for now, may update it later.

Neutral but leaning more towards -1

I see that you are playing Dumbledore a lot which is nice because he is an RP leader, but due to recent events and the attitude you have presented for yourself, I am gonna have to say that it is not a good thing. My vote is subject to change but as of right now it stands there.

I have never seen you on before, maybe cause i don't play that much lately but your gametracker (which can sometimes be inaccurate) shows that you only joined recently. This app is very rushed as well, if you're going to make another app in the future then put more time into it.
