Applicants Steam ID - STEAM_0:1:101196855

(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? - 
Ophelia Black

(1b) What is your current year level in-game? (MUST be at least 7th year to apply.) - 
Y4P7

(2.) In which time zone do you reside? - 
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. -  
I have three dedicated days off per week, but my work schedule will change days.  I am most active beginning around 6pm CST

(3.) What is your age? -
I prefer not to say in an open forum, please pm if needed

(4.) Approximately, when was the first time that you joined our Hogwarts RP server and how did you initially discover it? -
May 2020.  A few friends who have spent time on the server brought me on and introduced me.
 
(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -
This statement still stands. Between the people I have met and positive experiences that I have had, I am continually enjoying my time on the server.  I feel as though I have become part of a good community that I don’t intend on leaving any time in the near future.  

(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 RP
Fail RP is non-realistic role play scenarios. It is a situation that your RP job would not be involved in or do.  Examples may be: d/c while being snatched or sent to detention in order to avoid timers.  Snatchers snatching other dark forces. Teachers free spelling students.  Prefects arresting teachers. Self kill to avoid DOS.  Dark forces raiding without lockdown. 

2: Disrespectful, hateful and offensive behavior or speech towards others is not allowed.
Racism, slurs, sexism, sexist remarks, homophobic remarks and general disrespectful hateful and offensive behavior is not allowed.  Other things may fall under this rule per staff discretion.   

3No Random Deathmatch (RDM)
Death should only occur with a valid RP situation leading up to it.  There should always be RP reason to kill another player.  Walking up to a random player and casting damaging spells until death is RDM.  Casting damaging spells at another player in a non RP scenario without killing them can still be considered an attempt at RDM (ARDM) and is also not allowed.  This can also include things such as killing a dark force that is not revealed. 

4: Obey Staff and Roleplay Leaders
If staff asks you to do something, you are required to listen and follow the direction that is being given. 

RP has a chain of command and you should always follow your RP leader.  For example:
Teachers RP lead students, Snatcher Leader RP leads snatchers, Head Girl/Boy RP leads prefects.  Even if you do not want to do what your RP leader asks, you are still supposed to follow that chain.  Not doing so could also result in Fail RP.

5: No Massive Free Spelling
Spells are to be used in RP situations.  Damaging spells used outside of an RP scenario are always considered freespelling.  Consistently using non damaging spells can also be considered this if asked to stop by teachers, prefects or staff.  If you are casting spells repeatedly after being asked to stop and after being sent to detention, this can be known as mass free spelling. 
There are certain times when it is okay to cast spells freely. These include lockdown, QP, teacher demos, prefects stupefying in order to send a student to detention.   

6: No Metagaming
Do not use any information that you may have gathered outside of your RP character.  This includes discord calls and in game chat or watching twitch streams.  This also includes things such as playing off of job titles when your RP character would have not have known who they are/what they do, asking friends to take teacher roles and drop a certain spell.   

7: No Mic/Chat Spam
There are many things that can be considered mic spam. Screaming or yelling into microphones.  Continuously singing.  The use of voice changers.  Spamming music and sounds through your microphone. Continuously repeating the same thing over and over again into your microphone.     

8: Owl Post is for Significant RP purposes only
The Owlpost is used to show messages that are meant for everyone to see and is to be used only in certain RP situations.  Some of these include prefects posting RFD, Daily Prophet, Snatchers selling students, QP ownership, and PTS.  It is not to be used for personal messages as there are other forms of chat communication for that. 

9: No ERP
Do not participate in erotic/sexual roleplay.  This can also include sounds, movements and chats.  Speaking about sexual subjects, even if not in an engaging manner, can also be considered ERP. 

10: Do not avoid the AFK system or map exploit
The AFK timer is put in place for a reason.  Do not do anything purposefully to avoid the automatic 20min kick timer.

Do not purposefully go into areas of the map that are off limits/glitches.  There may be a time where these areas may be found on accident, but they are not to be gone to intentionally.  Do not exploit currently known things on the server weather it be harmful to others or not.   

(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 am a very friendly, outgoing person and I enjoy helping both newer and older players alike.  During my time as moderator, I have realized that my interest lies very much with the player base of the server.  I enjoy being able to enhance player experience through RP and teaching. I would like to be able to do that in a manner I believe to be a bit more fitting, which I believe would be as a game maker.

(7.) In your opinion, which quality of yourself do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I still believe that my time management is something that I need to work on.  I tend to get lost in situations and over think.  

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -
I also believe that this statement still stands true. I could use to improve on my adaptability.  I am all for change, but sometimes I can be a little hesitant and unsure at first.  It is something I have always struggled with and will continue to work on improving. 

(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 that my kind nature, willingness to help others and my desire to maintain a safe and welcoming environment will prove beneficial as a part of the volunteer staff team.  I also believe that I will be able to enhance some aspects of the server and general day to day game play with my creativity and and inclusion of the community.

(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 was a previously a moderator on the staff team of this server. 

(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). -
No

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why?
I believe that the player base is of more importance.  The server would be nothing without the players.  I have noticed this through low server population mostly.  Players come to the server when it is a fun place to be.  They can make or break a server.  Yes, the staff are important as well but without the players there would be no need for staff to begin with.  The players are what makes the community.

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

Patience 9/10
Response Time 9/10
Communication 7/10
Conflict Resolution 8/10
Adaptability 6/10
Active Listening 10/10
Written Communication 7/10
 
(13.) On a scale from 1 to 10, how familiar are you with Garry's Mod's default tools, context menus, and utility menus? -
7.  I have learned a lot during my time as moderator as well as through asking questions, actively learning, playing on other servers and in single player.  I believe there are still many things I can learn but at the moment I feel like I have working grasp on these. 
 
(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. -

Please follow the link below for event details:

***Ophelia Event Ideas***


(15.) Do you have any prior experience using ULX administrative system or sandbox building on Garry's Mod? -
I have experience through opportunities being on the SBS HWRP staff team as well as in my own sandbox building. 
 
(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? -
I understand

(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) -
Ophelia Mod App - Accepted

Easiest +1 ever.

Not even regarding the fact that Ophelia was incredibly beneficial to the team as a moderator, I've always known her to be an incredibly creative person and I believe her event ideas absolutely reflect this. On top of that, time and time again she's shown her dedication to the community and her love of the playerbase which I believe is crucial to being on the team in any capacity. As a moderator and even since resigning I've seen her participate and start passive RP events that went very well. Her ideas are unique and sound like loads of fun to be a part of. 

We'd be stupid not to give her trial.

I have to say, I ADORE your event ideas, big fan of events surrounding lore.

Something I think would be good though is to think past lore, and come up with more creative events, minigames perhaps etc.

Wonderful Moderator in my opinion.

Don't see any reason why a chance shouldn't be given, very clearly someone whos heart lies with the enjoyment of players.

You are pretty chill with players at least the times I saw you interacting with them

And you were a good moderator so I don't see why not giving an opportunity for you to become a Game maker

+1 

Good luck with your application!

Since the first day I met Ophelia I have never had a bad encounter with her. To be quite honest, I admire her. She’s more then kind, she’s brave, helpful, and creative. Not to mention shes fucking hilarious. 

When I found out you resigned from the staff team I was more then surprised, I was shocked. To me, you are a perfect fit for staff of any position. Then you came out with this application and it made sense.

You (obviously) have an amazing understanding of the rules and you’re events are inspiring. 

I have nothing bad to say about this applicant, and I know that won’t change.

A big +1

And please, never change, you are perfect just the way you are:)

Best of luck!!

Easy +1 for me
