(3.) How old are you? - 18 Years
(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - December 12th 2015, Was scrolling through the SWRP section on gmod and saw a decent number of players and a few people I knew so I decided to check it out, now here I am.
(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - Not that join date really means anything at this point, but I've been around for a long time and spent well over 4k hours on SBS CWRP over the years. I've met some fantastic people in this community that I can say feel like family at this point.  I'm willing/ and have already done things to make sure the server stays around and have helped out on a number of occasions even while not staff recently (Ie. models)
(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - Yes, of course.
(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? - Yes, staff are not except from the rules they enforce and are here to ensure if need be that they are followed.
(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
List Rules below:

1: No Major FailRP. (Good emphasis on "Major") Admittedly things have a time and place for when they are permitted, but generally FailRP is when a person or group breaks the set situation RP they are apart of via a number of means such as inappropriate /me's or ClimbSwep Flying. (Ie. *CT walks up to an Admiral and dabs, then proceeds to fly away using the climbswep glitch)
2: Respectful towards Staff and Players. As simple as it means and one of the rules that I find most important since I tend to be more strict towards disrespect. Generally Don't be a dick, be considerate to everyone no matter who they are for age, race, sex, etc. This is an open and welcoming community and I personally do not tolerate any targeted or general hate towards a person or group. (Being said there is definitely a fine line between "joking" and clearly being disrespectful.
3: No RDM (Random Death Match). To put it plainly, going around killing people purposefully. Usually done in the context of Mass RDMers (Those who do the killing) who try to disrupt RP and events by trying to rack up a kill count before they can be kicked by staff. (Given as we all know accidents happen, and TKs happen, which the one who killed the other should just give a call out and apologize to the person, so they are more aware of their faults. Which depending on the situation is followed by a kick or warn, which if someone repeatedly "accidentally" kills a number of people they should be punished depending on the situation (if its an IRP, in IRP punishment aka Pits and other disciplines. But overall just a warning before further continuation of punishments.) 
4: Obey staff and RP leaders. Generally straight forward as well, on the Staff side, if a staff member tells you to stop doing something. Then stop. Similarly with RP leaders aka officers or event leaders, If they are warning or telling you to stop doing something, then you better stop as soon as possible. These people tend to know what they are talking about and in events have things planned out, so when they are warning people to stop, general rule is to stop and wait for further instructions.
5: Do not mic or chat spam. Could also go hand in hand with FailRP, in the sense of screaming through ones microphone or spamming chat commands such as /me salutes or restrains as it is overkill and unnecessary. Similarly with microphones, be aware of PTS areas such as briefing rooms and limit how much one talks in addition to possible back ground noises that can be annoying or distracting to others while also breaking the RP environment. (Ie. Singing all I want for Christmas in a briefing room, for five minutes, straight...just don't)
6: Advert is for RP Purposes only. I believe now we have scripts in place that allows only certain jobs and whitelists to actually use the /advert command (which is much nicer than before) Meaning that the bright Advert text which is used for usually important messages should be left clear and open for important messages. (Ie. saying *Giraffe noises.* after our comms were supposedly hacked)
7: Salute your commanding officers. To me this also goes hand in hand with rule 2, These people who have earned their way up to officers have taken a good amount of time to work their way up to that position and prove themselves, similarly of etiquette its simple and as easy as binding /me salutes, so there should not be a reason to not salute an officer. 
8: Do not abuse AFK system or Map exploit. AFK system being if you are inactive for 45 minutes you are automatically kicked from the server, where as if someone where to lay a headset or something on the keyboard that allows them to continue to move, they wouldn't be kicked by the system even if they are not actually at their computer. While the map exploit is literally much more game breaking, meaning that if a map has an error in the layout or sewing which allows users to see through the map or walk through walls (Ie. Alt+e'ing on a railing and using the unstick feature to kick you through the wall into the next room) is unfair and breaks the play style in addition to RP. (I don't know if the same rule applies as before, but usually when someone is caught map glitching it usually results in an immediate ban. But I'm going to guess a few things have changed, that and luckily not many people map glitch.) 

(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - The term minge generally refers to a person (or group) that joins the server with the entire purpose to disrupt RP, annoy other players and staff, and generally waste time of others. (I can't count how many cadets I've trained, to then have them attempt mass RDM and get immediately banned) 
(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - I'm generally a simple person who enjoys art, music and RP hence why I'm here. As to why I want to be staff again is: I have enjoyed this server and its members for years and I would like to pay it back to help support it and ensure that those who currently play on it and those who might in the future have a safe and welcoming environment to join.
(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - Generally and probably what some people can attest to, is I can come off as a douche at times while not entirely meaning to do so. While ironically saying this next part sounding pompous and like a douche, I do come from a great number of other servers and have gained a lot of experience over my time on Gmod, I tend to forget that speaking bluntly or without filter I do come off as a douche. (Which I would like to think now a days I am doing better, of being more openly and outward.) Similarly I can be very blunt about things.
(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - As I alluded to slightly before I have come from a countless number of servers and have learned a great amount from each of them such as how to moderate things more efficiently in addition to other practical things related to events. While also coming an old staff position I do have experience moderating, administrating, and managing servers (which I did on SBS over the years)
(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - Yes I have been staff countless times on other servers and eventually made my way up to staff manager for a short time before SBS shut down the first time. However servers like Game Shark Networks (RIP) and a large number of others I helped develop and Manage. FireStarter Networks Dev/Manager, SavageGaming Dev/Manager, Diabolic Administrator, Highlander/Sabot Networks Community Manager, And countless more.
(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - Not on other servers since I agreebly understand other servers in the sense of I know what its like to have my time wasted and I don't find it enjoyable. However I was banned on SBS by Gerald for "Haha get fucked nerd"
(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - Officially answering, the players and members of the community are more important because like community or server, without a player base, people that support the server, or players who are even there to be staff, there is no server at all. Being said they go hand in hand, you need staff to ensure things are moderated and working correctly, but you also need players to start with.
(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc)
Patience 8/10
Response time 8/10
Fluency/clarity (Ie. How clearly you can tell someone or explain something and have them understand it) 8/10
ULX 10/10 
Professionalism 7/10 (We have our moments)
(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - If I didn't know how to handle a situation in a mod sit I would be sure to notify the next higher-up (Ie. administration) in order to have better clarity and understanding.
(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? - I understand and acknowledge.
(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) - So uh my older staff applications got removed with the updating and purging of the forums. But I had two applications out there before, my first application (I think was back in 2016, I was accepted as a mod and held the position for 5-6 months before I left to focus on school and more personal issues I had going on in my life) The second one was late 2016 and I was accepted again as a mod, admin then Staff man. near the end of 2017 when the server shut down (I still remember the TS call ;_; )

Application Accepted
