I have been consistently active for almost 2 years now and this won't stop specially if I get the position.

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

Yes, I do.

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

I understand.

(5a) Please explain each of the main server rules and what they each mean, to convey to us that you understand and comprehend them wholly.

 1.No Fail RP: 

Players should impersonate and behave as their RP Character and doing any actions that your character wouldn't do in the lore is considered fail RP giving attention that some RP Situations need permission from staff before being performed such as Field Trips, Substituting Teacher and etc.

 2.No Disrespect
Toxicity, Offensive Behaviors, Hate Speech, Targetting are all considered disrespect and are severely punishable in the SBS Community. Using any kind of Racial and Homophobic Slurs can potentially get you banned for a long time (2 weeks average, can get extended if repeated)


 3. No Random Deathmatch (RDM)
Killing any player without a valid RP Reason is considered RDM. RDM can come in types
LF Killing LF under any circumstances
DF Killing DF with no RP Reasons
LF Killing Rogue DF (Without Revealing Them Selves)
DF Killing Rogue LF (Without Revealing Them Selves)
4. Obey staff and RP leaders:
Always listen to staff, no matter what a Roleplay Leader says, Staff will always come above in the Ladder.
Every job has a Roleplay Leader, and each faction has an RP Ladder. People should respect each other accordingly to that RP Ladder.

In the case of Dark Forces:
Snatcher<Snatcher Leader<Head Snatcher<Death Eater <Elite Death Eaters<Voldemort<Staff On Duty

In the case of Light Forces:
Ministry:
Ministry Investigator<Auror<Elite Auror/OOTP< Wizengamot Justice< Kingsley < Ministry < Staff On Duty
School Staff:
Student<Prefect<Head Prefect< Head Boy/Girl<Hogwarts Board Directors<Teachers< Headmaster < Staff On Duty

Failing to obey your RP Leader will result in punishment from staff.

 
5. No free-spelling:
Freespelling is fine as a student with an RP Reason, however Free Spelling in a Non Arrestable Character is not fine, also using freespelling as a method of targetted harassment also falls under this same rule. Usually such situations are handled in RP but if continuous Staff can be called.
6. No metagaming:
Metagaming is using a way other than in-game/character information to your own advantage. OOC, PMs, Discord, TeamSpeak... can all be used to metagame. For example if a snatcher snatches you, using any of the above methods to communicate in order to be rescued is considered metagaming and thus should not be done.
7. Do not mic spam or chat spam:
Micspam is the act of blasting music/sound in general through a soundboard or even through your microphone, on other hand Chat Spam is the act flooding Local, OOC, Staff Chat, PMs, Owlpost.... with a big sequence of messages in a short period of time.
8. Owlpost is for RP purposes only:
Owlpost is a roleplay chat, any non roleplay involved messages should be kept either in PMs or OOC. Misusing OP wouldn't get you in trouble unless repeated.
Examples of Fail OPs:
/op Party at Hagrids
/op Deeznuts
/op Hello
etc..
9. No ERP:
ERP is the act of participating in sexual activities either in action ,chat or voice chat, normal relationships aren;t considered ERP, if not taken to extreme levels such as intercourse in the dorms etc.. ERP is severely punishable since the player base consists of many different age groups.
10. No exploiting or cheating of any kind:
Using any kind of third party advantages such as Bunny Hop Scripts, Aimbots, or anything similar falls under Rule 10 and is severely forbidden. On other hand using spells to exploit into places that you aren't supposed to have access to, and even Exploiting the AFK system falls under the same category.

(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 Walden, most people know me as a PvP-Tryhard, or if you are an old inactive person than you probably know me as the Rude Guy or something among the lines. I feel like I have changed a lot since the time I made the post regarding the thin ice, and I think it's the right time to apply to prove to people how I've changed.
I think I can make people's experience more fun with my events specially with the lack of Gamemakers at the moment. People might even think this is a joke app, because that's usually what I do but it's not. Many people might think I wouldn't do great as a staff member because all I do is meme, but I can be professional when needed.

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

Patience is something I need to improve, although I said I am reformed, there were still a couple of incidents which showed my "before" self and that annoys me, but that won't affect my staffing as during the period of any staff role that I take, I am completely unbiased and I wouldn't change my attitude towards anyone due to past drama.

(7a) In your opinion, which skill set of yours do you feel that you need to improve on the most? -

Sandbox Building, as I state below, I think I need to improve on that, and that will happen during my time as a Gamemaker if I do get the position, although my immense amount of hours on Garry's Mod help me with that quite a bit.

(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? -

My past staffing experiences, specially as a super, and the amount of hours I have on Garry's Mod are something that definably sets me apart from the rest of the applicants

(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) -
 Old Benjis RP - T-Mod -> Admin

KinfoRP - Staff Manager
New Benjis RP - Community Manager
Toxic Network - Server Manager
United Gamers - Co-Owner
Excaliburn Networks - Staff Manager (Current)
(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 approximately 10+ bans, although my last ban was 9 months ago in February

(11.) In your opinion, are the server staff or the players of more importance? Why? -

Staff and Players are both equally important. Staffs duty is to ensure that all the players are having a nice time playing on the server thus they play a key role, however without players staff won't be able to keep on doing their duty, in such a way that Staff and Players are dependent to each other and thus equally as important.

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

Patience 7/10 

Organization 6/10
Reaction Times 9/10
Decision Taking 9.5/10
Overall Skills 9/10
ULX Skills 10/10
Sandbox Building Skills 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? -

9 out of 10, I have almost 4k hours on Garry's Mod (Not proud) and that helped me become familiar with almost every mechanism in the game. 

(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. -


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

I have been a Super-Admin many servers in the past, so I am pretty good with ULX, regarding Sandbox building I am not the best but I can work on that with time.
 
(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? -

Of course.

(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) -

(Closed due to me being inactive in CWRP.)

Thanks for reading my application :)
For any concerns DM me in discord (Walden#0001)

you do know the rules but you do joke a TAD to much and i'm worried the troll side of you might be a little in the way of you being good staff atm, that being said you are improving and i can see you possibly getting it in the future at some point

+1 would be best gamemaker since Joe Mason.

I have known Walden well and been friends with him for the past year, while he does display a lot of mingey behavior, he definitely has the ability to be a serious person when it's necessary. He has the activity and the drive to be a GM, he also knows the rules well considering he has broken many of them in his time hahaha. I think that at the very least a trial for GM is well deserved, I would love to see what he can do with the server.

Again another person I know has been heavily interested for a while and had very poor behaviour before but have seen a huge growth from; though at times has very tip toed things you have taken a step back and as of recent I’ve watched you on prefect roles, I’ve seen you teach and your knowledge is incredible. You definitely have the knowledge and experience on your side from previous positions in other communities. 

My only real concern that I have told you directly is that at times when you’re on with people you can be heavily influenced by their behaviour and become less “chilled Walden”; stick to being you chief and you’ll surely prove you want this - good overall application and I will come back to read your events later when I’m home. 

Neutral to +1 (purely as I haven’t actually read the events yet).

I've already aired criticisms about the Magical Racetrack if it takes place across the map, it could be harder to manage. Maybe for one of the phases you can also include rings in the sky or carpe/apparition? 

To the applicant himself- he's always had open ears to criticisms about him. He cares a lot for the server and he is no stranger to gmod.

There may be some criticisms about him scripting, but I've personally been one of the people asked to spectate him for bhop scripting and have never found any evidence of it. Even someone who scripts wouldn't have the familiarity with the timing of the spells or the map to go as quickly as him. Really, his outlook is pretty positive on the scripting accusations... he takes accusations of scripting as a complement/credit to his ability, and won't hold it against anyone who has accused him in the past. 

All of his events seem to either be server lore based or source lore based so no real complaints here. Similar to what I said in Eloise's app, this applicant is probably fine so long as he doesn't regress into old patterns.

Was actually a bit shocked when I first seen this application.
As I've said, I see so much potential in you for this position.
I personally haven't seen you do many leadership roles just
mainly pvp or flying down hallways but I'll be keeping my eye
out for you now! Good luck man.

Walden may have been mingy in the past but I believe he has changed his attitude and has the capability to become staff

+1

as an avid roleplayer I can very clearly see that Walden would be an extreme benefit to the community as GM,

#10
+1 Walden is truly reformed, He is my role model and gives me hope that one day I can become reformed too.
And he is the only one that can make an immersive jihadi hagrid takes over school event considering he is a jihadist himself.
