(4.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our Halo RP server and how did you initially discover it? -

I found Halo RP by playing the HW server, once Halo RP came out, it was announced, I thought I'd check it out and decided I'd stay and here I am today. 

(4b.) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? -

I have been a lot more active ever since the new version and update has came out. I've managed to get decent activity since the update came out.

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

I understand completely.

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

Yes, I do.

(5a) When listing the 7 basic rules, please explain what they each mean to convey to us that you understand and comprehend them wholly.

List Rules below

Rule 1 - No FailRP - Do not go out of character during RP situations or minge when RPing.

Rule 2 - Be Respectful - Respect both players and the staff, to keep a fresh, non-toxic server.

Rule 3 - No RDM (Random Death Match) - Do not randomly kill someone and do not kill someone without an valid roleplay reason (Example, someone goes up to 2 marines and kills them without any reason or explanation, that is classed as RDM.)

Rule 4 - Listen to Staff and RP Leaders - If a staff member or a RP leader tells you to do something, do it as it's for the best, and also they are practically in charge when it comes to certain/important situations.

Rule 5 - No Meta-Gaming - Meta-Gaming is when someone uses something out of the game or server to their own advantage in roleplay. (Example, using OOC to their own advantage or revealing someone as an event character due to their job name being "event character")

Rule 6 - No Mic-Spam or Chat-Spam - Mic spam is when someone plays something loud or demanding on their microphone. Chat spam is when someone constantly repeats something in a short amount time.

Rule 7 - No Cheating or Exploiting - This is when someone is intending to gain an advantage to their own gameplay, example, looking for bugs in the map is map exploiting and cheating is when someone uses mods, hacks or cheats to their own advantage (example, flying, spawning stuff in from the spawn menu, etc)

(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'm Elijah and I like to RP on the server, I have been on this server for over a year and have been in the community for more then 2 years. I use to be a GM and I know how most things work when it comes to Gamemaking. I'm enthusiastic, hard-working and am always willing to improve as a person. 

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -

Confidence. I need to improve on my confidence the most, it isn't too bad but could be improved.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I would probably need to improve on the skill set of my events. Because they did range from bad to amazing, some people said, so I will need to improve on that skill if I am to be accepted.

(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 have experience and I use to be GM on this server and was a GM for nearly a year. I get along with the current staff team and haven't had any problems since I've been back.

(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) -

I have been a Mod on the HW server. No longer a Mod as I resigned.
I have been a GM on the Halo server. No longer a GM as I resigned.
I am staff on a HW server, have been for quite a while but it hasn't and won't affect my activity and performance over here.

(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've been been banned a few times on the HW server due to my own wrong-doing actions and I own up to them, I were breaking the rules on the HW server (RDM, Fail RP and Disrespect) and at the time I was an idiot for doing that but I'm trying my best to improve as a person and I've changed, I just hope others see that. The longest ban I've had on HW is a year but it was reduced to two months, I do regret that though and I'm responsible for what happened when that situation occurred.

I do understand if some are against me becoming a GM because of these reasons as it was my own fault.

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? -
I'd say both are just as important as each other. Players keep the server running with the player base and staff enforce the rules as well as entertain the server (depending on the staff rank) but staff aren't anymore special as they are still a player, they just have extra abilities for a reason, and that is to do their job.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -

Patience: 8/10
Response Time: 9/10
Honesty: 8/10 - Biggest factor for a staff member in my personal opinion.
Confidence: 8/10
Co-Operation: 7.5/10
Willingness to Learn: 10/10

(13.) On a scale from 1 to 10, how familiar are you with Garry's Mod's default tools, context menus, and utility menus? -

I'd say I'm a 8 to 9 out of 10. I know how to use a lot of Garry's Mod tools and menus but I'm going to say I know all of them now, as the server could have new ones that I have no clue about but in general, I'd say I'm a 8 to 9 out of 10.

(14.) Provide us with at least two detailed examples of events that you would orchestrate and how you would proceed with organizing, operating, and constructing them. -


Insurrectionists have breached an UNSC outpost

Insurrectionists have managed to breach a UNSC outpost, taking down their defences, managing to take down their security systems and has a Commander as a hostage in an armed prison. The Insurrectionists have done this because of their past experiences with the UNSC, they have wanted to do this for months and have managed to do it this time. Someone called Lieutenant Parms have ordered the Insurrectionists to do this (The Lieutenant is the commanding officer of the current UNSC breached outpost, the officer in charge of the Insurrectionists at the outpost) and it has been reported from one of our recon teams that the Commander is currently with the Lieutenant under interrogation from the Lieutenant himself. The job is to investigate the matter and see what the Lieutenant wants and to breach the Insurrectionist's defences blocking us from getting to the Commander. Other objectives and tasks will be given at Briefing.

Lieutenant Commander, What Are You Up To?

Lieutenant Commander Marshall is hiding something but it's for the UNSC's own good. However, ONI and MPs will be involved and will be investigating along with the Marines, and other regiments but ONI and MPs have a vital part in this. It's got to include something dangerous surely... because the Lieutenant Commander wouldn't surely hide something unless it's either very important, dangerous or confidential. We can tell for sure it's nothing confidential as one of the Marines overheard the Lieutenant Commander talking to an Ensign about some kind of keycode that leads to an underground base or laboratory and he did say no clearance is needed but clearance is needed for someone to go in one of the rooms in the underground base/laboratory. Once UNSC personnel finds out what secret he is hiding, Briefing will be held and announced and more information will be said in Briefing about the mission. 

A city named Stone Land gone bankrupt!

A city named Stone Land has gone bankrupt but it's due to unknown reasons. First of all, the police department has been abandoned in this city, the hospital centre is only just managing and the population has gone down from 75,000 people to 4,500. What a disaster. However, there is one undercover police officer there, and she will not stop being there until the city is back to normal as the city use to be an amazing place to be at, it was peaceful and had no crime, war or disasters. But all of a sudden, it's gone bankrupt and partly abandoned for whatever reason. The UNSC decided to step in to make sure the threat there isn't too severe as in situations like this, it's normally either because of the police department or terrorists (Insurrectionists). On one of the UNSC radars and terminals, it was brought up that a couple years back, the city was at risk of being breached by Insurrectionists but who knows? The UNSC decides to investigate the city, and will hopefully come out with an outcome as soon as possible because if it was at risk of Insurrectionists before, then it's likely that Insurrectionists have caused this problem...
More information will be said in Briefing about this mission.

Please note that, I also work well with "in the minute of the moment events". More big & small events will be added to the list of events soon.

(15.) Do you have any prior experience using ULX administrative system or sandbox building on Garry's Mod? -
Yes, I do.

(16.) 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 do.

(17.) Please provide a list of all 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) -

Application was denied for reasons that could be questionable. I spoke to the Server Manager, and a couple of staff about this. The Server Manager did say I could re-apply early due to the reasons that I spoke to him about (I believe? If I'm wrong I apologise). I've also spoken to the current Staff Manager about this concern and some valid and true points were brought up about this.

Although this shouldn't affect my application in any way, I did get chance to do a couple of events as a Temp Admin and thankfully they went well and was a lot better then my last one due to the players votes being positive.

I know I've had my ups and downs within the community in the past but I am trying to improve on that and I'm trying to move on from it, I'm not perfect. I have changed since then and I've changed for the better. I hope people see that and understand where I'm coming from. I can't apologise enough for some of my wrong-doing actions in the past within the community, especially on HW. I completely understand though if people are against me having a role like this because of some of my actions in the past but I am currently focusing on the present time and on the future, and overall, I'm aiming to improve and grow more as a person.

I am trying to move on and forget about the drama that I got involved in, in the past, and am trying to show I'm trying and that I think drama is pointless. I understand and get everyone's concerns though if they are to comment.

Always trying to improve as a person.

The PMs between me and you were in the past and I’ve moved on from the drama in the past and I’ve not been involved in drama for a while now. Whenever I get on Hogwarts RP I mind my own business. Yeah, I’ll admit I wasn’t the best person in the past when I got on Hogwarts but that’s a few or two months back now and I’ve moved on from that and I just do my own thing whenever I get on now. I speak to those who I normally speak to and chill with them, and I stay away from drama as drama is pointless and unnecessary. Yeah, I know I’ve participated in drama in the past, I should’ve kept out of that drama, I own up to that mistake and can’t apologise enough for that. I understand the concerns you’ve mentioned though.

Thank you for the reply.

I understand your concerns and why you've brought up about me and you having drama as that will always be a thing that'll not be let go. All I can do is improve and show I don't like or participate in drama anymore. I wish I could change the past, but I can't and I do regret some of my actions in the past, actions that got me involved in drama and actions that lead to drama, as I said though, I've moved on from that. I own up to my actions. Also, regarding the concern when I got mad at you when you was an Animagus for barking. I honestly don't think I did or it's because I don't remember. If I did then apologies about that.

Thanks for the reply.
