#1
(1.) What is your SteamID? - STEAM_0:0:517234102
 
 (1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - Dakota Donner

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be 7th to apply.) - 5th Prestige 1
 
 (2.) What Timezone do you live in? - GMT+1
 
 (2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. -  Between 5:00am and at least 16:00pm (CST) 
 
 (3.) How old are you? - 14
 
 (4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - Almost a year ago and i was seeing a video of someone playing it and it was catchy enough for me.
 
 (4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - Because of life causes i can only play from one week to other im an active person in the server so you can trust that i will stay active and loyal.
 
 (4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - Of course.
 
 (5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? - Of course.
 
 (5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
 List Rules below:
 1: No FailRP- It means that you cannot break the coventions of your job, one of the most failRP that i've seen its, for example, when you're running away from a prefect and you just disconnect or change your job, or even when you get snatched you cannot disconect just because you dont wanna be snatched, that is considered failRP.
 2: Dont be disrespectfull toward other players- You cannot be homofobic, racist, or even just call names toward other players, their just like us, they should not be treated differently because of their sexuality or skin color, i've seen people that get arrested and just star spamming the chat with bad words to the prefect that arrested them, that cannot happen we're a community we should stand up for everyone.
 3: Do not RDM people- This is one of the most breaked rules in my opinion, everyday i see someone get killed for no reason or me getting killed just because i arrested someone, this is something that the people should not have to be warned of, because if you want to fight someone, why dont you just wait for the lockdown? Or why dont you snatch someone? Dont kill people just because you want too or because you dont like them.
 4: Respect your superiors- You have always to follow the orders of your superiors whether you like or not, if you have questions about your job rules even after you've read them, just ask someone, it dont need to be from staff but they're obviously who will help you most, for example, if you're a simple student you have to follow the orders of prefects, head prefects and staff. If you're a prefect and you have questions about, for example, if you should arrest someone just ask to a Head Prefect, they surely know how to help you.
 5: No massive free spelling- You should not free spell for any reason, but if you're just free spelling a non-damaging spell the worst that could happen its get arrested, in that case its your fault, but if you're casting damaging spells for no reason thats basically considered RDM, but if you're a prefect you can use stupefy to arrest other players, but just in that case, because if you're a prefect and you are free spelling thats against the rules because as a prefect you're an unarrestable job, and if you are arresting people because they are free spelling you can't comit the same mistake.
 6: No Metagaming- Dont talk privately with someone about, for example, "help me from being kidnapped", TeamSpeak, Discord, Steam chat, are supposed to be used to talk with your friend privately about things that just you can know and stuff, one thing that recently i've been seeing its, people getting arrested and then asking to a friend that is prefecting to unarrest him, this is all metagaming.
 7: Dont Mic/chat spam- Recently more people are using voice changers just to make noise and interrupt meeting, like, classes, great hall mettings, or even when someone is simply talking to a friend, chat spam, its mostly seen when someone get arrested and start spamming on the chat, "RD ME NOW", "I DID NOTHING", if you got arrested for no reason just talk to someone in the staff team, they will surely help you.
 8: Dont use Owl Post for non-significant things- Owl Post its used to make a message stand out easily, but however it should not be used for non-significant reasons, it should be used to enlighten things like, for a prefect state the reason of the arrest, for Teacher tell the students if theres permission for speak or not, etc...
 9: No ERP- You cannot do anything that will be related to sexual activity or explicit images, unfortunately i've seen people that create groups just to ERP and thats not an satisfying thing to hear.
 10: Do not avoid the afk system- You can't just use programs or use something to press the keys in your keyboard that would make your character walk so you dont get kicked by the AFK system and continue to get XP freely, that is Avoiding the AFK system.
 
 (5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - The term "minge" when referring to a player on the server means that the player is acting porpusely like an idiot, ruining the other's experience such as prop-blocking, spawnkilling, most times even just to get kicked or its just some 10 year old kid that doesn't know how to read the rules.
 
 (6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - I'm an optimist person, that never give up on his dreams, that always tries to see the best on the others, emotional guy, likes to make friends and as laugh problems, im a stressfull person but than can change with the time, loves music and acting. I want to be staff because im i focused person im coherent, i have responsability and maturaty, i know the rules very well and i very active in the server i dont act without certain i like a good and clean job i want to make the difference, help the players and the staff and keep the server moving.
 (7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - I could be less stressfull.
 
 (8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - I'm a person that if really wants to can settle the things correctly, with this i mean that if someone needs to be punished, its most likely to get punished than getting out with nothing i dont want the people to feel scared about me but i want them to act correctly and artfully and i think it would be helpfull having a new staff member.
 
 (9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -  I've never been staff on gmod but i've already been sponsor in a CS:GO server.
 
 (10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - No, i haven't.
 
 (11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - No one is more important than the other, both have their problems and both can solve them with a little hope and work, without the players there would be no RP, without the staff there would be no rules, without rules the server would be really messy wich would cause chaos and no one would like to play in a server like that.
 
 (12.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, Communication, etc) - Patience-6.5; Communication-8.5; Team Worker-10; Creativity- 8.5.
 
 (13.) How familiar on a scale of 1 to 10 are you with Garrys Mod Sandbox tools? - 6
 
 (14.) Give us a couple of detailed examples of an event you would use and how you would proceed with them -  
Sweet War in Hogsmead
Student's of hogwarts were up to a trip to Hogsmead, but not everything went well, the greedy Neville Longbottom started gathering friends to crate an army and to help him "assaulting" the candy store in Hogsmead, but they had to take some precautions, because the workers of the store, will not gave their candys away so easily. 
The first thing I would do is get the Neville Longbottom as main character, and then see who would like to participate as students force, after that find people who would like to be in the store workers force. It would be at all 15 students against 15 store workers. Who wouldn't be participating shall not interrupt the event or try to be a minge in that case I would have to take action. 
The participants would have to put in their names:
- Army- if you're in the students force. 
- Worker- if you're in the workers force. 
When this all was ready I would announce the event and explain what would happen detail by detail, the wait for questions if there were any and get everyone to the departure place and then change the map.
Before starting I would state the war space so anyone could cheat in anyway. 
Then warn when tge event would start, and eventually start the event. 

Cars VS Humans
This one would happen at the QP, th humans would have to go trough a specie of parkour in the sky, and the cars would have to prevent the humans from getting to the finish line, because when humans get to finish line have the permission to eliminate the opponent team(the cars), and so the cars can hit the humans their would be ramps in the two sides of the QP so they can reach the humans and kill them from fall damage or even just by the hit of the car. If a car gets stuck in some prop of the parkour the person that is controlling it shall not get of the car to try and kill the humans with spells if that happens I would have to take action, just wait for some staff member to get the car off of there.
First thing I would do is get the necessary amount of car drivers and humans to participate. At all there would be 8 car drivers, 4 for each side of the QP, and 10 humans.
Then place the props where it's needed. 
Done this I would announce the event and explain every detail of the matter and answer any question asked. 
If someone try to be a minge and interrupt the event I would have to take action. 
After all this I would positionate every participant and let the event begin!

 
   
This is a sketch of the event Cars VS Humans, it's not the final product, obviously it would be worked a lot more and a lot more bigger with more obstacles and stuff, I would have much more choice with the props too. 
This is an example so you, maybe, can understand how it would work. 


I think the other events are self-explanatory just by the name that's why I didn't create a sketch for them. But future new events could have sketches too. 



Quiditch Game
Finally two hogwarts houses, face each other in a real quiditch match! Both of them are focused in getting as much points as they can to their house, but would that be enough to beat every single house in the house cup? 
First thing would be making a vote, so the server could vote in which two houses would face each other in the most important quidditch match of the year. 
When the vote was completed I would get 7 players of each voted house to play. 
Then reunite very single one of them and chose by myself who would be the:
-Chasers (3 chasers in each team) 
-Beaters (2 beaters in each team) 
-Keeper (1 in each team) 
-Seeker (1 in each team) 
Done this I would get every game object necessary, such as:
-Broom
-Balls:
  • 1 quaffle
  • 2 bludgers
  • 1 golden snitch
-Points Table
Points
The points would work in a really easy way, it's simple, for every goal with a quaffle the team that scored the goal will receive 10 house points and 10 points in the game points table, if someone catches the snitch the game woild immediately end and the team that catched the snitch would receive 150 house points and 150 game points. 
The game only ends in two ways, at the final time of 30 minutes, and if the game ends like this the house with more points scored wins, and the points that each team scored would be scored in the house cup too, or, by someone that catched the golden snitch. 
Final Touches
To give the server a bit of quidditch spirit would change a little bit the school theme by putting for example some kinda of trophy glass cabinet in some of the school halls, some quidditch tracks and obviously some medieval music to give the spirit. 
And then announce the event and answer any question given. After this positionate the participants and let the match begin! 
(15.) Do you have any experience using ULX or building on Garry's Mod? - Yes.
 
 (16.) 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? - Of course, thats one of the reasons that i am applying. 

 (17.) 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) - I've never applied to anything.
See ya!!!
I surely have laugh problems.

So hello there sir, this isn't the Strongest app going , you need to fix stuff on it , Like the rules , you need to use the server rules and explain them , next the events, you need to include events that are very detailed and appeal to the player, you need to sell yourself on the app, put a bit more effort in sir and hopefully you will be fine 

Nice to see you have a interest in applying for gm

Havent really seen you around, but it good to see someone especially EU based interested in GM. Application isnt the strongest to be honest, but maybe some more time on the server would help. Good luck! :)

Benfiquista? :o

My problem here is that you're not listing all the main server rules, nor explaining them. Your events aren't well elaborated, which I suggest creating a google doc with a storyline behind them, a script, and some side notes and pictures. You also don't stand out that much. Players who stand out the most have a bigger chance of getting staff. What I suggest you do is to prefect, reinforce the rules, teach classes, host great halls, etc. If you manage to properly fill your application, get some more elaborated events, and do what I suggested you do, I'll change my vote. For now, -1

It's really good to see people applying for GM! We really don't have many right now, and we have even less that are active. I have seen you around on the server, however I've only started seeing you recently. I think that you should stick around for a bit and get to know people as well as the server really well. As for your appeal, you should always try and include as much detail as possible. You should go more in-depth with the rules to show a good understanding of them and you should also flesh out the details of your event, to give people a better idea of what they would include. You should also try to think of some other ideas for events, as you have only provided one. As far as I'm aware, you haven't been banned recently so your behaviour is suitable for the role that you are applying for. However, I do feel that the main thing that you need to focus on at the moment is spending time on the server. Looking at your gametracker, you've only recently returned to the server. Wait until you've been playing for about a month, so you have good knowledge of the server in its current state. Here's your gametracker stats:      As you can see your recent playtime is good, however you've only been back for around 10 days.

Neutral. Flesh out your appeal and spend some more time on the server then I'll happily change my vote for a +1.

Good luck with your app! :)

Same reasons as Etlenor. I've also seen you prefect tho and tbh i don't like your prefecting lmao. You've arrested me before while i was a prefect and yesterday threatened to do it again when it was not prefect law, tried to tell you that you can't do that and you basically didn't give two shits.
