(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 try to be a kind person and if anyone has a problem with me, I will try and sort it out. I am also great at assessing situations and coming to reasonable acceptations like around the server I have helped people with problems they have had with other players because at the end of the day I just want everyone to have fun. I would really enjoy being staff to help out around the server.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
My imagination, I feel like I have a really narrow mind and i feel the need to work on that.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? - 
I think I need to make a focus on my delivery with some things but that will just become good with practice.

(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'm in a timezone that other staff arent on and i feel like the times that i am on staff is really needed. I don't really have any beef with anyone on the server so i am not biased.

(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, I have not.

(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). - 
3rd of May for RDM and it was a 1 month ban but got deducted as I apologised.

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? - 
Really the players because its staffs' job to look for any rules getting broken, making sure the server is happy and everyone's having fun also making sure the server is a safe place for all the old and new players to enjoy and come back to.

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (E.g., patience, response time, etc.) - 
I would give myself a 8/10 because of the fact that if there are a lot of reports coming the response time is obviously going to be long but I will make sure to get everything done.

(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 look at the offence (what was said, how many times something happened) and decide on the punishment and if I can't decide then ill seek help from other staff members and come to a decision.

(14.) You both understand and realise, 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 socialise 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 and agree to leave anything that I am doing and go handle with any server related issues.

(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) -

Hey Alex! So I am going to be honest, I wasn't expecting this from you...But nevertheless, I will give my vote. Now you see, I barely play much lately so I barely know what is happening these days. However when I have been on, you have always been kind and responsible. Ive mostly seen you on the server doing your own thing, however I may be wrong, you may have been prefecting lately. I'd wait for other votes and what people say about your prefecting, responsibility, etc. But in my opinion you could be great as a staff member! Neutral for now

In all honesty, and I hope this doesn't come out as offensive, but you're a Master Prestige and I've never heard of you before. I genuinely do not remember any encounters we've had. I don't think you stand out, and I do recommend prefecting, reinforcing the rules, hosting GH (assuming you don't do them much), and just generally talk to others more.

Neutral to -1.

Hi Alex!!! First off I want to say you're probably one of the first super welcoming individual's I've ever met when joining on this server. You have been nothing but welcoming , nice and a fun person to be around. I think the way you approach people is great and I think that's something that's needed in the staff team because staff can come off super intimidating. I always see you talking to a new person everyday as well which is great! But that being said some stuff I would like to see more of.
1. Teaching ( whenever you ask him to teach he will do it but I want to see him do it on his own)
2. Great Hall meetings and or Prefect meetings.
3. Showing new people around and showing that you know all the rules and are educated on them as well.  Heart
Other than that I think the time zone you are in is needed and I know there is times when I've been on and no staff are on but you are on and its been crazy. You are doing great job with prefecting so far which is great. Like I stated up above we need more welcoming staff ( no shade I've met some really welcoming staff) but I've also come across some staff that I'm nervous to be around. Other than that you're doing great I just want to see more of the stuff I stated above Heart Good Luck!!!

Hey Alex!
So to begin with you are really a chill dude and we get along well; to me it kinda seems moreso you’re applying currently due to having a good amount of friends on the staff team - as I personally have not seen you prefecting a huge amount (you have started to play head boy/head girl a little), I haven’t seen great halls, and I haven’t seen teaching from you. Ofcourse I will try my best to look out for these; get involved with the upcoming mock trials and host some greathalls also.

Neutral to -1 currently I’m sorry!

Neutral, applicant has potential.

I have seen you prefect, not fantastically I might add, but it's something I have seen, one thing I will say, I think teaching is easier and less stressful, don't burn yourself prefecting all the time because it just flat out gets rough as fuck past the first few hours of doing so.

Other than I think you're Karma's husband, that's all I know about you, so it would be nice to see what personality you have and how you "RP".

Good luck.

Hey Alex!

You're honestly such a lovely guy and always super friendly to people on the server, However as other have stated I haven't seen you do any leadership roles such as great halls or teaching. Maybe this is due to being on a different times but I would definitely like to see more of this from you! 

I'm gonna be a Neutral on this one for now but may come back and change my vote if I see things change.
Good luck!

Hey Alex,

I do think that you have potential and I know that you really enjoy helping others, however there are some major concerns that come up for me.  

You seem to constantly be involved in some type of drama.  Since very early on in the server I have noticed that you actively involve yourself in situations that cause chaos.  I don't believe that they are always made in any sort of malicious manner, but you make some very questionable decisions.  You have no issue choosing sides in things and believing what people tell you.  It almost seems that you let people think for you most of the time.  You do not come across as a very honest individual. 

You let your desire to be liked outweigh your ability to think for yourself.  I feel that in looking at you as a potential staff member this in itself is a HUGE red flag.  I really question weather you would be able to handle sits with players who may have had issues with you in the past/still have a lot of issues with you. 

I also feel that your application seems rushed.  Your explanations of the rules are very generic, and could use quite a bit more information. 

These are all things that can be improved with time I personally don't believe that right now is the proper time for you to be considering staff.  I think that you really need to take a look at yourself before being able to help others on the server in any capacity.  

I know this feedback may come across as a bit harsh, but I think it is really important. 

Its a -1 from me for now.
