List Rules below:

1: No Fail-Rp -
 Basically don't do anything the job you're currently playing as wouldn't do! eg. free spelling students as a teacher/unarrestable/prefect some examples if a dark force is attacking students inside of the school
and if teachers don't teach the subject they're teaching on 
2: Be Respectful (No Racism, ETC)- 
as it says in the rules, don't be disrespectful towards other students or RP leaders, Don't harass other people for no reason, if they say stop you stop. No Hate speech or offensive language towards anybody on the server

3:No Random Deathmatch (RDM)
Don't be randomly attack other players or killing players without a proper RP reason. teachers are not to be Attacking students, students attacking other students etc

4:Obey staff and Roleplay Leaders- 
self explanatory. if your RP leader asks you to do something you do it, if a staff member asks you to stop something because its disrupting other players or Fail-RP you stop doing it, if you're a prefect and a teacher asks you to send a student to detention, you do it. if you're a dark force and Voldemort orders you to bring him a snatch, you do it

5:No Mass Free spelling - 
don't be going around free spelling other students with random spells that can stun or damage or affect any students movements without RP reasons

6:No  Metagaming -
 Respect the RP Scenario, if someone is not being snatched don't post in OOC that 'so and so' is a snatcher that is classed as metagaming

7:No mic/chat spam -
 Don't be yelling into your microphone or playing music through a soundboard or your phone unless you're apart of an event that allows you to do so, Don't spam chat in OOC/local/OP/@

8:Owlpost is for RP only - 
Don't be posting in Owl Post unless its for RP reasons only, for example your a snatcher selling a student.

9: no ERP (erotic Roleplay)
This pretty much means to not involve yourself in any sort of ERP situations ,This can be anything from saying sexual things through your mic, typing anything erotic over OOC or simulating animations through emotes 
10:Do not AFK exploit or Map exploit - 
Don't purposely try and get out of the map or use afk exploits to avoid the 20 minute kick timer, do not use scripts to put yourself at an advantage in anyway.

(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) -
when I first joined the server I felt out of place as I didn't really know many people or could find myself to talk to anyone so I would stay quiet, but then I met a whole lot of new people, been through a few moments but that's all over! had a couple breaks but have always come back .  I would like to help people in anyway I can to enjoy the server and not just come on for a little bit then never return. 

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
I'd say social interactions but being on the server and talking to many different people helps a lot! 

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
public speaking but I'm getting a lot better at it

(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? - 
because of my time zone sometimes when  I'm on the server there aren't many staff members online, so I try my hardest to prefect all the people who are not respecting the rules, and if I do get staff I could help the community and make sure people have a good experience and would want to stay on  the server without the troubles of all the people ruining it

(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). -
N/A

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? - 
I would say both are of equal importance for example if staff are not online things can get out of hand but some days when staff aren't online there are a lot of prefects to handle any bad situations that might occur!

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) -
 I would say I have good skills! I have patience and good response time. I would like to overall rate myself a 8.5/10 in most basic skills 

(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 ask a fellow staff member who is online for help or if nobody is online go to discord and ask for help

(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! 

(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) -
 N/A

Ayy! Fairly decently written application and overall you're a really chill guy - I ofcourse have some bias towards you as being good friends with you. You prefect a decent amount whenever you're on which is nice to see - but I also feel you don't take too many other leadership roles like teaching or great halls; this may just be me missing it due to lower activity as of recent but I'd like to see you take these roles more to further show how much you'd like to be staff and can be a good leader. We do definitely need more staff during AUS time I feel so you fit in nicely there and you would also fit in nicely with others on the team as shown through the friendship groups - you're really easy to approach in game and have good general knowledge. One thing to say about the application though is that some of the rules are a little underwritten I feel and I feel like you know more about the rules than you have presented - so maybe explaining some a little more in detail/giving more examples would be a good way to improve this.

Overall on the application I am going to be neutral currently until I feel like I've seen some improvements and to see how you act on feedback you may be given from others and myself.

Good luck!

I'm gonna be very direct here.

You are a very nice guy but you are currently not ready for staff.
I only ever see you talking to people while flying around on a dragon or the occasional PvPing, will need to see some prefecting, prefect meetings and great halls.
I also see you using your soundboard on the server a bit and freespelling on unnarestables, not giant issues but they should not be done by someone who is going for staff.
Regarding your intentions, I currently see it as you applying because you have friends on the staff team rather than an interest in moderation, given your lack of leadership positions or willingness to enforce rules.

Personally I think you should of waited a while longer before applying, but there is still time to act on the things stated above.

I am gonna agree with Joe here, I do think that you do have a bit to work on

Things to improve on,
More Great halls, Teaching, Prefecting, Maybe try a Prefect Meeting, Enforing the rules (As Joe Stated Above)

These are just a few things to work on. For now I am gonna stay Neutral currently may change my vote later

A bit concerned that you may be going hard on the prefecting- being a good prefect isn't always about doing everything as efficiently as possible, which is what you appear to be doing. Take your time because it's a marathon, sometimes it's better to deal with the one issue in front of you than it is to deal with multiple issues in a different location.

Also lay off talking about customs/getting on them because you've rubbed many people the wrong way about that subject, and this feedback could have been given months ago and would still be valid.

Doopsy as everyone has mentioned you'll need to play more leadership roles in order to be more vocal with the community considering you're having a hard time opening yourself up. What everyone has listed in the comments is my suggestion to you. Also one more thing you'll need to be more active and understand that taking breaks on the server could lead to a removal so keep that in mind. 

Overall, I'm going to be voting neutral here because as there is more work that needs to be worked on you can continue progressing and take everyone's suggestions into account.
