Hey Oliver!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in-game, or at least I can’t remember ever speaking to you.

Since I can’t really give any feedback on you as a person, I’ll give some feedback for your application itself.

Something that stands out on your app to me is your description of the rules. The descriptions are very specific and don’t really cover all bases when describing said rules, thus not really proving that you understand them. It’s also hard to try and understand what you mean with some rules, such as rule 1. I won’t lie though, your descriptions for rule 4 and 9 did make me chuckle. I see understanding of server rules to be vitally important within an applicant, as your main job as a moderator would be to not only follow these rules, but enforce them as well.

Rule descriptions aside, the rest of your app seems fairly good, although the amount of mistakes with things such as grammar suggest that the app may have been rushed slightly. Also, you are rather informal in this appeal. That isn’t necessarily a terrible thing, but it’s not the best way to go about an appeal. Imagine applying for staff like a job interview: you’re trying to show the employer that not only are you fit for the job, but also you’re trying to show good characteristics such as professionalism. Formality is a great way to show such a thing in my opinion, however what you can show through through an application is limited, and what matters the most is how you are on the server. The way I see it though, proving yourself in your application never hurts, as it can give an idea to people such as myself as to how you are as an individual. 

My vote is going to be neutral, as you do show some promise in your application, however as previously stated I know nothing of how you are in-game, which could be due to a variety of things such as time zones or activity. When it comes to activity, I often check game tracker to see how active the players applying are. I’ve been told multiple times that gametracker isn’t reliable, but I don’t think that it should be completely disregarded. What gametracker suggests your play time is isn’t great, So instead I’m going to ask a question to yourself:

How much and how often have you been playing on the server recently? Looking at your forum activity you’ve had some presence on the server since at least January, however what I want to know is how consistently you’ve played since then. 


That’s all I have to say for your application, and I wish you the best of luck!

I remember you from few months ago, you where always  good at perfecting/keeping students in line.
( I'm sure those who remember you also know that)

 Your application seems well put together and thought out, I'm going with a heavily +1, good luck man.

I also have never seen you on the server and if I'm being honest, I don't really like your explanations in your application. It''s not bad, but it's hard to know if you really know the rules. I would've liked to see a bit more details when you explained the rules. I'm not really a fan of your reason to be Moderator: "the only reason i want to be mod or attempt being mod is to relieve some of the load gwen rose has at 3am in the morning dealing with n words trolls disrespectful ppl...". Maybe you don't mean it that way, but you saying you only want to be Moderator to help Gwen is in my opinion not enough of a reason to let someone be on their trial. Maybe if I see you on the server I would change my vote, but this vote has been made solely on your application.

Hello Oliver,

I do remember seeing you previously -- maybe two months ago. You spent most of your time on the prefect job and attempted to bring order to classrooms. You did take the role seriously, where you constantly told people to get to class and abide by the rules and it was excessive. People really did not like you back then and you mention people don't really like you now ("now am i popular hell no"). A mod does not necessarily need to be liked to do their job well, but it would be a benefit to be well liked in this community.

However, I don't recall seeing you for quite some time. I only noticed you the other day, so I checked your game tracker and it looks like you just came back? do correct me if I am wrong. I don't have anything against people applying after taking a break, but I feel like you should spend a little more time in-game and getting used to the different range of players now populating the server.

Some general suggestions about your app
  • Change the way you discuss the rules. For example: Rule #1: Fail Rp. Explain Fail RP. An example. It would look better and the sentences would flow better too. 
  • Your reasoning for becoming a moderator is commendable to assist one staff member. Perhaps you could work on this where you talk about benefiting the server and assisting the staff team instead of a single staff member. But I mean, this is your reasoning, so if helping one staff member is your reason then it's not a very good one.

-1 for now

All the best.
How daring of you

Bro you cone back then take long ass breaks 

You take no criticism on your prefecting you talk shit about the people you arrest you’re whole attitude is you thinking you are better than people. 

You are always talking shit in ooc about people. when you joined you told me you wanted the most hated player award in the award thing. 

I couldn’t imagine getting a sit from you bro it would be a head reck. 

So to sum it up your a cunt -1

I don't believe I have had any interactions with you in-game, I have never seen you before. But the first thing that stands out to me here is the lack of detail that has been put into the application. The first thing you need to do is go over each of the rules one by one and add more detail into them ensuring that you also list the rules before the explanation, covering examples of what breaks those rules, and what the rule itself actually covers. And also put some extra time and consideration into the other areas of your application. Below is a list of things you can do to improve your application and actions on the server.

Things to improve on application
- List the rules before the explanation for example 1) No failRP - (Explanation) and make sure you list all 10 in order.

- Maybe do some extra research into some of the rules and then add more detailed explanations for them for example: Rule 10: No AFK or map Exploiting - You are automatically disconnected from the server after 20 mins of being AFK and doing anything to bypass this system would be classed as exploiting the AFK system, Map exploiting would be using bugs and glitches around the map to your advantage.

- Take some time to look over the rest of your application and go into more detail and proof read it for any spelling/grammar errors afterwards. Look at other people's applications for ideas if you have to, but don't plagiarise them

Things to improve on the server
- Host Great Halls and Prefect meetings - this will allow you to demonstrate your knowledge of the rules and show off your communications skills and leadership skills as well as showing your confidence.
- Do some prefecting regularly especially during PL and report on the forums where necessary 
- Teach classes - Along with everything else here this will allow more people to get to know you, and will help to demonstrate your skills.
- Increase your activity in-game

Goodluck with your application!
