Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:0:190405416

(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? -
Sailor Connor Sugarplum.

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be at least 7th year to apply.) -
3rd Prestige, Year 1

(2.) In which time zone do you reside? -
GMT - Greenwich Mean Time

(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. -
5am to 3pm CST

(3.) What is your age? -
20

(4.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our Hogwarts RP server and how did you initially discover it? -
It was November 5th 2020, I discovered it via some friends that had been playing on the server and decided I wanted to try it out.

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -
As it currently stands I play very frequently and I'm on 4/5 times a week. I try my best to do what I can to change up what I'm doing to keep myself engaged within the server. I enjoy the people I interact with and the different friends and bridges I build along the way and hopefully I'd continue to do so as the social part of the gameplay is really enjoyable - I want to continue to grow within everything.

(4b) Do you understand that you can be let go at any time for excessive inactivity at our discretion? -
Yes I understand

(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the server when necessary? -
Yes I understand and agree

(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 Role-Play
This is doing something that your character or job wouldn't do within the the Hogwarts world. For example revealing cuffs as a snatcher for the sole purpose to reveal yourself to engage in PVP, or a prefect arresting a fellow prefect (unless it's a head prefect arresting a poor/bad prefect).

2: Disrespectful, hateful and offensive behaviour or speech towards others is not allowed
From my experience this is one of the most commonly broken rules unfortunately. This is being respectful to your fellow peers and staff by not being rude, racist or sexist. Another thing is to avoid harassing and targeting other students whether this be as a DF and solely targeting someone with snatches in order to insult them extensively or gathering students to hate and target an individual.

3: No Random Deathmatch - RDM
RDM is simply one player causing the death of another player when it isn't right to do so. One example of this is 2 students shooting mostro/verdimillious at one another - these spells should only be shot at students if they are a revealed snater and are simply trying to save the snatch/kill the snatcher.

4: Obey Staff and Roleplay Leaders
This is to follow instructions given to you by your roleplaying leaders or staff members. An example of this would be as a prefect listening to and obeying a head prefect (head boy/girl) or a teacher. Another example would be a staff member taking you aside and asking you to change your name as it doesn't fall within name rules.

5: No Massive Freespelling
This means avoiding the use of spells that impact the movement of those around you to a degree that it could be taken as harassment. The use of Stupefy, Impedimenta and Desendo are typically the spells within this and will usually get you into detention if used after warning.

6: No Metagaming
Metagaming is the use of knowledge or outside means or resources in order to help yourself. An example of this would be using discord or messaging a friend where you're being snatched and where you are so they can help you. Another example of metagaming is asking a student who is a snatcher if they're a snatcher in order to get them to reveal themselves - as you're not supposed to know they're a snatcher.

7: No Mic/Chat Spam
Whether this be as minor as playing a tiny sound through your microphone to screaming/shouting/playing music down the microphone it just shouldn't be done - unless of course you ask for permission from staff and are able to play music for events and such. Whereas chat spam is the continuous use of binds or typed messages in order to block or fill chat.

8: Owlpost to be used for RP purpose only
Owlpost in essence is the advert channel and should only be used for such things within RP situations. You can use Owlpost in order to sell a student as a snatcher back to the school - or for a prefect providing the reasoning behind a detention. Owlpost can be used for many things - but having general conversations/messaging within owlpost isn't one of the uses.

9: No Erotic Roleplay - ERP
This is the use of language or actions in a way that you are sexual to another player - whether this be from making sounds to the use of speech or even erotic movements, erotic situations do not occur within the server and should be avoided (most of the roleplayers are students/children in RP sense).

10: Do not avoid the AFK system or map exploit
This is to use means in order to stay on the server to generate XP whilst you are away or to stay on a job/role that would be taken. An example would be to use a macro in order to cast a spell every few minutes or to move every few minutes to trick the AFK system that you're still active when really you're away from the computer. You shouldn't be using abusing flaws within the map in order to gain advantages either and these should just be reported to staff in order to get them fixed.

(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) -
I feel that I can help improve the RP experience for many people, especially newer players by dealing with those that come to the server in order to mess around. I am incredibly responsive to most situations and messages so I never really miss anything going on and overall I just really enjoy helping people out and hanging out with others on video games. I understand I'm relatively new to the server but I've had my time to minge and I'm past that point to where I take it ALOT more seriously.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - I tend to stutter over myself sometimes when helping others due to the fact I think alot about what I'm saying and what I'm trying to say when I really just need to be more to the point - short sharp and snappy with it.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
Becoming more familiar within the custom classes the server has and learning the specifics of each job.

(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 feel SBS would benefit from me being on the team as I play within the time where there isn't currently many staff and I tend to largely play during the time of PLAW and I prefect a whole bunch. I have incredibly good response time to messages and have very good patience when it comes to situations. I'm rarely ever on a role that isn't a prefect as I like to help others and have pretty good knowledge of the rules. Throughout the time I was participating within the mock trials and shadowing it just felt right in the sits and I was comfortable with what I was doing.

(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) -
N/A

(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). -
I have admittedly been banned on 2 occasions.
The first was a 1 day ban for RDM/ARDM when I was new to the server and was within my minge stage I was messing around with someone within discord.
My 2nd ban was for Mic/Chat spam and this ban was for 3 days - as I was spamming the chat a fair bit with a bind I had at the time.
From these bans I do felt I've grown and learnt from them and have tried to be as rule abiding since.

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? -
Both the staff and players are equally as important. Without the Staff the server would fall to destruction due to those coming onto the server to ruin the experience of others who use the server for many reasons. Without the players there wouldn't be a server to staff and wouldn't be an experience to be had.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -
Patience - 9/10 - I've learnt to hold my patience throughout experiences I've had.
Response Time - 9 - I'm fairly engaging within chat and whenever I have a notification I'm pretty on the bull to respond.
Approachability - 8 - I do feel like students come up to me a fair amount needing help and I don't feel I sound intimidating to literally anyone.
Rule Knowledge - 8 - I've familiarised myself with the rules but you always learn new things here and there.

(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 message other staff who are on or other staff I know I can get in contact with and see what their advice would be - alternatively through checking their ban history and such I could use my own knowledge in order to hopefully handle the situation well.

(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 I understand this and I agree.

(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) -

+1 Connor is chill af. He knows the rules, he is active i dont see why not

#4
Hey Connor, you seem like a chill person, I see you hanging out and being friendly towards many people and you offer your help in one way or another, during potions class whenever you are online you always link the ingredients locations thread so that's very nice of you! I will remain neutral since I do not know you too well but I wish you the best of luck! :D

edit: I've gotten to know Connor a little bit better during the last couple of days and he has been doing a great job at prefecting as well as bringing a lot of diversity in the classes that he teaches by having the students vote between multiple different spells options, I change from Neutral to a +1.

 Best of luck Connor, you're putting in the time and work, I believe you'll do a phenomenal job as a Moderator!

Connor is super active on the server and goes out of his way to make sure students aren't lost, telling people to chill out with the rule breaking, and is super approachable. You don't need prior mod experience to handle SBS, it's super EZPZ lmao.

The staff team would benefit having someone as great as Connor on their team <3

HUGE +1

This screenshot literally shows how often he's on SBS. it isn't a requirement to be on EVERY SINGLE DAY, not everyone has that luxury but quite a few of his time slots are over 3 hours. :3
Ex Mod :3
Sometimes a Samsung Smart Fridge
Sometimes a Toaster
Ravenclaw
Apparently a Daddy

I just wanted to bring up a point about the comment about hours here. He is very consistent, he takes off a couple or a few days every week but is very active on all the other days. Xam does have some points about not seeing you prefect/teach/do great hall/prefect meetings, i mostly see this from the other applicants right now,and for the ones I don't see it from, I notice other things about what they are doing. Mostly what I see from the applicant right now, is that he hangs out with the right people and reports when necessary. He also sounds like Mike Donner's twin. 

I'm going to be neutral for now until I'm able to rule out all of Xam's complaints about you. While being headmaster/prefecting doesn't make or break an application, it does show how you can deal under pressure. GL.

You're active, I always see you prefecting, you know the rules & enforce them very well, you are a very fair person and I always see you helping new players.

You're a very confidant speaker, have very good knowledge of SBS and I know you done well in your mock trials.

I think SBS would benefit from having you as a staff member.

Big +1 from me!
