Lydia's GM Reapplication :)

#1
Heart 
(1.) What is your SteamID? -

STEAM_0:0:152067635
 
 (1a) What is your most recent ingame name? -


I often go by the name Lydia Snow, though I tend to change my last name often.


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


Master Prestige, Seventh Year.
 
 (2.) What Timezone do you live in? -


MDT (Mountain Daylight Time, 1 hours behind CST) 
 
 (2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. -


I’m often active around 6 pm MDT, though I’m often active throughout the day depending if I have plans or not.
 
 (3.) How old are you? -


17!
 
 (4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? -


I joined back in 2018. I had joined with a close friend while recovering from surgery, and got addicted to playing. Since then I have played as much as possible, but she hasn’t played at all.
 
 (4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star?-


I’m currently attempting to get my activity back to what it was when I was a gamemaker in may, so I can assure everyone I will be as active as I can. Now that I am finished online school, it will be much easier to make time for the server. 
 
 (4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? -
I completely understand.
 
 (5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? -


Yes, completely understand, and I have experience of enforcing the rules from my time as staff.
 
 (5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.


 List Rules below:


Rule 1- No FailRP


Failrp is a general rule to keep the server in touch with its roleplay aspects. This rule  prevents things that would not be in roleplay, from being brought on to the server. This includes common examples such as Suicide, Raiding the graveyard, Voldemort entering the school, etc. Though these can be altered at the hand of a gamemaker, failrp is a very commonly enforced rule.


Rule 2 - Disrespect, hate speech and harassment are prohibited


General disrespect is a common rule on this server. You may be arrested by prefects, and in some cases, pulled by staff. Bullying, Racism, Sexism, Ageism, and Homophobia/Transphobia are very common examples of disrespect on the server, and each are dealt with depending on the severity of the situation. Though, the N word and F word both have a minimum ban of two weeks in most cases, and which words are completely unacceptable to be using on the server.


Rule 3 - No Random Deathmatch (RDM)


RDM is a commonly broken rule by newer players, but this rule is quite self explanatory. Within RP, Light forces should never be killing other light forces, along with students never killing other students. In some cases with dark forces it’s ok, I.E Voldemort killing a disobeying death eater, but besides that, RDM should never happen purposefully. In some cases, RDM is okay, but only under staff supervision, I.E  A Free for all at the quidditch pitch, Fight club/PVP arenas, etc. 


Rule 4 - Obey Staff and RP Leaders


When understanding this rule, you must realize the fact that Staff rule goes above rp ruling. Meaning if your rp leader does something that a staff member does not allow, the staff member overrules the rp leader. Examples of this rule include teachers ordering prefects to arrest certain students, voldemort ordering for a specific person to be snatched, etc.


Rule 5 - No Mass Freespelling


While Freespelling is often handled easily by prefects, in some cases staff may need to get involved. The most common example of mass freespelling is multiple people spamming spells at the same person, to the point where they can’t move. 


Rule 6 - No Metagaming


Metagaming is a very common term among rp servers, and it refers to the act of taking outside information in-game, and using it to your own advantage. A very frequent example of this is attacking snatchers without them actually revealing themselves, by taking the fact that their job name says “snatcher” as a way to reveal them. 


Rule 7 - No microphone or chat spam


Again, a self explanatory rule. This one regards to making loud noises through your mic, playing music, and just being generally obnoxious. The chat spam portion refers to constantly spamming the same or different messages, binds, etc in chat. 


Rule 8 - Owlpost is for roleplay reasons only


Owlpost is a command (/op or /owlpost) used often for RP messages. Conversational and irrelevant messages should be sent in ooc, an “out of character chat”. 
Owlpost is specifically reserved for uses such as teachers requesting prefects, PTS being activated in active classrooms, reasons for detentions, kill on sights, etc.


Rule 9 - No Erotic Roleplay


This rule is simple, no erotic activities, comments, or actions. This rule is in place to keep this server moderately family friendly. 


Rule 10 - No AFK or Map Exploiting


AFK exploiting is often done by using +right or +left in console, in order to keep the player from disconnecting while afk. A ban for AFK exploitation is usually 1 week, but it depends on the verdict of the staff member. The best way to avoid this is to simply log off if you are planning on being AFK for more than 20 minutes.
Map exploiting is the act of using bugs and glitches in the map to your advantage, which can also tie into AFK exploiting if players are using the map glitches to hide from staff. 


 (5b) Explain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server -


The term minge to me means a player who logs onto the server with the intent of ruining others fun, One who intentionally breaks the rules.
 
 (6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) -


This is most likely going to be over 100 words, I have a lot to say. 


Hi, I’m Lydia, an ex gamemaker. I was a moderator back in early 2019, then I was accepted as gamemaker, failed trial and set back to gamemaker. I was then reaccepted as gamemaker and passed trial, and proceeded to stay in that position until my resignation in may. My resignation was all in good blood, I kept a clean record as much as I could. I will admit though, I was involved in drama after my leave which I regret completely. Though I hope this does not affect my reputation. 
I left the team at the time because I genuinely felt burnt out. I was finding it hard to get on the server often, and when I was on the server, I was only building. This is hardly fair to hog up a gamemaker position for an inactive deco-gm. But, I took a month off and now I am ready to return with more event ideas and inspiration then I had at the end of my run as full gamemaker. 
 
 (7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -


My neutrality and confidence. 


Regarding my neutrality, as you all probably know, In the past I have shown biasedness towards Etlenor, one of my closest friends. I am completely aware this is an issue and I’m attempting to work on it.


My confidence has been an issue since forever, and though I have had major improvement with it, it’s still not at the point I would like it to be.
 
 (8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? -


I believe my leadership and patience. During my run I helped as much as I could to make the upper management's life easier, and my patience has been praised by others, because I am able to wait in sits and explain things to players step by step.

Another trait I believe is praise-worthy, is my loyalty. 
I remained staff from January 2019, to May 2020, only resigning because I was busy with IRL
commitments and my social life. I really enjoyed my time as a gamemaker,
and as much as I talk about it, I really love it when the server has fun with something I did.
Another run as gamemaker would give me the chance to showcase events and roleplay scenarios I've wanted
to do, but haven't had the chance to.
 
 (9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -


Ex gamemaker on HD Gaming
Ex Moderator on SBS Hogwarts
Ex Gamemaker on SBS Hogwarts
 
 (10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garry's Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. -


Once for RDM + LTAP when I first joined. I killed my friend as a joke then immediately disconnected. I 100% regret it, but this was in early 2018 and I haven’t been banned since.
 
 (11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? -


Players, in my opinion. Without them, the server wouldn’t exist, or have a playerbase to moderate. 
 
 (12.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, Communication, etc) -


Patience- 9.5/10. There is always room for improvement.
Confidence- 7/10, I addressed this in question 7.
Activity- 6/10, It isn’t great at the moment, but I’m doing my best to improve it.
Creativity- 8/10, I do my best to create unique events, builds, and passive rp’s.
Determination- 10/10. 
 
 (13.) How familiar on a scale of 1 to 10 are you with Garrys Mod Sandbox tools? -


Very familiar with the basics. I’d personally say a 9/10, if I ever needed to use more tools than what I already know, I could easily teach myself or ask for help.
 
 (14.) Give us a couple of detailed examples of an event you would use and how you would proceed with them -



 (15.) Do you have any experience using ULX or building on Garry's Mod? -


Tons of experience using ULX from staffing, and I enjoy building in my spare time, so 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? -


Yep! I completely understand.


 (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 have quite a few, lol

Final Note-


If you are viewing my gametracker, you will view multiple "blank" spots where I have been inactive. 
This is completely due to connection problems and my inability to actually get on the server.
Since I have fixed it, my activity has been roughly 5-6 hours per day. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please reply or dm me on discord (shugr#3219)
and I will gladly discuss any matter with you!

Thank you for reading my application, and have a great day <3

Easy +1. Lydia was a great GM during her time on the job, from which she also has the experience and training needed to be a GM. She's friendly and approachable, follows the rules and never causes any problems on the server. 

Good luck with your app!

Even tho I didnt use to play when she was a gamemaker, she is a very cool person and by her past history I think she deserves GM

You resigned to take a break, nothing wrong with that. I would like to see you back as a Gamemaker.
