Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:1:126108004

(1.) Do you agree to and accept the Volunteer Staff Application Terms & Conditions? If so, please answer with "Yes, I do agree and accept these terms and conditions." -
Yes, I do agree and accept these terms and conditions.
(1a) What is your most recent or commonly known in-game name or alias? -
Pierre Saint
(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be at least 7th year to apply.) -
Prestige 3 Year 5
(2.) In which time zone do you reside? -
US EST
(2a) Please provide the hours of the day that you are the most active on the Hogwarts RP server according to CST (Chicago, US), so the managers and staff know when they can expect to see you. -
5PM-8PM on Weekdays, 3PM-6PM and 11PM-1AM on Weekends
(3.) What is your age? -
18
(4.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our Hogwarts RP server and how did you initially discover it? -
I joined the server in December of 2017, although I’ve only been consistently playing since early 2020. I discovered the server and actually bought gmod after watching Call Me Kevin’s videos of him playing Hogwarts RP. I picked the SBS server because it was at the top of the list and since then I have hardly even logged onto another GMod server.
(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -
While I don’t deny that burnout is a thing and I do take my breaks, it has been a part of my daily routine to log on for an hour or two. I’ve really enjoyed all the friends I’ve made since I’ve been back and there’s too much keeping me here to just disappear.
(4b) Do you understand that you can be let go at any time for excessive inactivity at our discretion? -
Yes
(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the server when necessary? -
Yes
(5a) When listing the 10 basic rules, please explain what they each mean to convey to us that you understand and comprehend them wholly.
List Rules below:
1: No Fail Roleplay - FailRP is doing something that your specific character would not normally do in the wizarding world. Examples of this could be: coming to the school as Voldemort and talking with the students, and pulling out your cuffs to purposefully reveal yourself as a snatcher and start killing people.
2: Disrespectful, hateful, and offensive behavior or speech towards others is not allowed - Rule 2 encapsulates a lot of things. The first thing that comes to mind is hate speech. This means you cannot say things such as the n word or the f slur in voice or text chat. Another part of rule 2 is harassment. While light insulting is permitted if you're torturing a snatch as a dark force, if you are targeting somebody and insulting them for the sake of making them upset or bullying, that’s when you cross the line. This can also include sexual harassment. While similar to ERP, sexual harassment is one person doing unwanted ERP to another person after being asked to stop or told it is uncomfortable by said person or others.
3: No Random Deathmatch - RDM is the use of damaging spells to kill other people without a valid roleplay reason. For example using mostro to kill the headmaster as a student.
4: Obey Staff and Roleplay Leaders - This means that you must follow the instructions of your RP superiors or staff members (unless the person is asking you to break a rule). Examples of this could be a staff member asking you to change your name because it violates the name rules or Voldemort taking your snatch for only 50% of the asking price.
5: No Massive Freespelling - Massive freespelling is using your spells (mainly ones that affect movement or deal damage) many times without a significant role play purpose. While casting stupefy a few times will only get you arrested as they go against RP rules, doing this repeatedly or making it a targeted effort can potentially go against the server rules.
6: No Metagaming - Metagaming is when you use knowledge or resources outside of what you would be able to have in the wizarding world. An example of metagaming is getting snatched and messaging your friend on discord or in pms to switch to an auror to rescue you.
7: No Microphone/Chat Spam - Micspam is when you are purposefully doing something with your mic, whether that being talking closer to it or just screaming, to be loud and disruptive. This also applies to playing music through your mic. Chat spam is spamming a phrase or a bind you have in the chat many many times with the purpose of flooding the text.
8: Owlpost is for Significant Roleplay Purposes Only - Owlpost should be used for important announcements for RP that need to be highlighted in the chat such as PTS being activated and selling snatches. An example of something that wouldn’t be allowed in owlpost is “Pierre Saint is a dummy dumb.” 
9: No ERP - ERP is the act of engaging in sexual activity in your RP or bringing up sexual topics. An example of this can be typing: “/me gives blowjob”
10: Don’t AFK / Map Exploit - This means you cannot use a third party program or mechanism to circumvent the AFK system, ie. an autoclicker to continuously cast a spell or taping your left mouse button down. Tabbing out and moving every few minutes is NOT AFK exploitation as it’s you vs. the system. Map Exploiting is using knowledge of the various glitches to get certain places you shouldn’t be in ie. using your broom to go to the skybox and getting off to glitch yourself into the sky.
(6.) Tell us a little about yourself and why you would like to be accepted for a volunteer staffing position on SBS. (100 words or less) -
Hi, I’m Pierre. I love to surf and play videogames. The biggest reason I want to become staff is because I really enjoy helping people out. While prefects can do this, the ability to read @ messages from people and the !goto command are just a few things that would aid me heavily in assisting people.
(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I think it’s my leniency and I am occasionally criticised for it when prefecting. For example, if someone is freespelling stupefy, I will typically tell them to stop multiple times before arresting if they refuse to stop what they are doing. I am not going to claim I am perfect and I do recognize that this is something I will have to work on. However if given the opportunity, I know that I will be able to put my foot down in the situations where I need to as a staff member.
(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I think my biggest weakness/fear is my current lack of knowledge of the commands that a staff member would use on a daily basis. This stems from my lack of experience with GMod itself, having only played on HogwartsRP. While currently apprehensive, I believe that this skill will come quickly to me after a bit of time.
(8.) How would having you on our volunteer staff team benefit our server and what qualities set you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
I think what sets me apart from other applicants is my prior experience in helping/disciplining people. I’ve worked as a sailing instructor for the past 4 years teaching 8-10 year olds and have a lot of exposure to having a disciplinary role. And while I understand that teens/adults are more stubborn than the kids I teach (although you’d be surprised), having this job provides me with some strong qualities that staff members should have like commanding respect instead of hate, working with people for a solution instead of telling them off, and making both parties not feel screwed over when resolving a conflict.
(9.) Have you ever previously maintained a game server staffing position, or currently are, on any other Garry's Mod servers? If so, which ones, and in which staffing positions? (List them if possible) -
No
(10.) Have you ever previously been banned on any Garry's Mod or SBS servers? If yes, then please list approximately when, how long, and the reasoning(s). -
So now I need to come clean. My track record in the past hasn’t been… great. A lot of my worst behavior has also gone unreported and isn’t even reflected on this list. However, since my earlier days, I have worked on how I present myself/act on the server to become a positive addition to the server as opposed to a pest. With this being said, here are all my bans as I can remember

12/17/20: 4 days for ARDM/LTAP - Worked this out with the staff member who administered the ban via a discord appeal and after explaining my side (GMod crashing) it was reduced to 2 days.

Most of the bans going forward are documented on my thread history and can be viewed in more detail if you desire.
4/30/20: 1 day for Micspam: Mic was very loud after audio update
4/23/20: 1 day for FailRP: Pulling cuffs out without fumos
4/11/20: 1 day for Fire in school: GM’s made little castles made out of wood and I found out that they burned down if I used the dragon’s fire breath.
4/09/20: 1 day for Micspam: Played the song “Magnolia” as a bit because at the start of it it says “Yo pierre you wanna come out here?”

The next bans I don’t have exact dates as I didn’t use the forums but I can give rough estimates
Summer of 2019: (2 weeks?) for Mass RDA during PLaw
Late 2018: (1 month?) for Mass RDM during PLaw
(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? -
While staff are essential for the function of the server, that is assuming that there are even players to look over. The players are, of course, more important as there would be no RP or any rules to enforce if there aren’t any players.
(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -
Response Time: 8 - Typically when I get on Hogwarts RP, I have my full attention on the server and what I’m doing. I think this would translate to response time for sits as I have nothing distracting me when online aside from the occasional phone call or checking my phone for a minute.

Approachability: 9 - I like to believe that I’m a pretty social person. I love to talk and engage in RP with new people and never really stick to a particular group.

Knowledge of Rules: 7 - While I have familiarized myself with the general server rules and have thoroughly read the Compendium, I still find myself in situations where I’m unsure what constitutes breaking the rules. I think that as time goes on I’ll get better on this and I’ve been learning new things every day.
(13.) If you find yourself in a 'staff-sit' where you're unsure of how to fairly distribute punishment and or handle the situation or discrepancy at hand, what do you do? -
I would contact another staff member either on the server or via discord. This is why I’m so thankful to have such helpful staff members in the community that have been around a while and who I trust will assist me until I get the hang of things.
(14.) You both understand and realize, that by applying for a volunteer staffing position on the server, you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to role-play and or socialize freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues and or volunteer staff position tasks at hand no matter the situation and to the best of your abilities? -
Yes
(15.) If applicable, please provide a list of all your previous volunteer staff applications, provide a link to them if possible, and list any reasons why they may have been locked. If they were previously accepted, please provide a short explanation of why you are no longer volunteer staff at the time of this application. (Disregard if this is your first application) -
If anyone has any further questions and me or my application feel free to add me on discord:

HUGE +1

some of the explanations could use some refinement (for example, you say that revealing yourself as a snatcher by pulling cuffs out is fail RP, but I would say that it is metagaming. There's overlap with fail RP, as technically all the rules can be reworded to be FailRP. I would say that pulling your cuffs out on purpose would be metagaming, but then telling people to kill you instead of retreating when you reveal yourself is fail RP)

I was one of the people who banned Pierre a while ago (I think for burning down castles for an event after it kept happening, there may have been a kick too but i dont remember), I used to think very negatively of him, as if he would just get on to minge. I had a very long discussion with him back in August or September and from that point forward I noticed a very positive change, this convo led me to want to talk with people who minge, rather than just assume they're just on to make people's experiences miserable without taking into account server health. The change seems to have been positive for us both.

I only know Pierre through the server, and I'd say he's perfect staff material, something the staff team would want and need. He's social, funny, and flexible. Reminds me of how some of the best older staff members (and former ones) explain things- never in a generic fashion. Pierre regularly explains the rules in a clear, succinct manner which engages the listeners. This is a quality that I find to be incredibly rare, and present in staff members who enjoy staffing. When he's on he's teaching and prefecting, sometimes he even snatches rulebreakers and forces them to read the rules and teaches them how to access the rules for their freedom (this is something I've done for newer players as well). He also regularly tries to help new snatchers in the graveyard learn how to snatch. His understanding of the compendium, considering his year/prestige, is considerable. 

GL!

So, I've interacted a few times with you while teaching, and you were quite the loud mouth in class. I don't think this is anything against you but that's all I have seen from you. I haven't seen you teach, prefect, or do Great Hall, and if you have, I haven't seen it. You also do seem kinda mingy. I think I need to see more before I give you an up vote.

Neutral for now.

So we just had a talk and you do seem like a genuine person and I hope to see more from you. However the first time I met you was when you were micspamming as a prefect in an active class during PLAW. That was a month ago and I don't think it's been long enough for you to prove that you are responsible enough to be a full time mod. 

Also, if I am using GameTracker right you have really only been active in the past week or so compared to your activity for the last month. You may be a little premature since that's just not a lot of activity to get noticed. You're prefecting now and that's good but I'd want to see a lot more of that including Great Halls and teaching before I give a +1.

-1 for today

I've seen you a lot in the past few days. You have been quite helpful in both mock sits and in prefecting in general. I'm changing my vote to +1 because of this.

From minge to prefect, Pierre has shown that he is responsible, hardworking and has the ability to enforce rules.
He did farely well in the mock trial that he attended and he is generally well liked by the community.
No doubt he'll do well.

as you have been supportive of anything I have wanted,

its only fair that I return to favor to you.

You know the state of the community right now;

a turning point.

That turning point holds a door open for you.

Walk through that door.

Also, take this +1.

It might help you achieve your desire.

Pierre I’ve had nothing but good interactions with you on the server playing leadership based roles. 

This application is a +1 from me

I have seen you a lot in the last week or 2 and you've been on a prefect role almost the entire time. You enforce the rules and you explain things in detail. You give plenty of warnings and are pretty fair with people. 

Some advice I want to give you is during PLaw. You were playing a prefect and just sitting in the corner with the rule breakers. Someone had to tell you to get up. But you did apologize for it and you didn't go back. You continued doing your job. 
Another would be to teach some more classes or run a GH. You have a good understanding of the rules already so you would do a great job at it! It would help get your name out there more!

I'm a +1!

Good Luck!!!!
