(3.) What is your age? -


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

I joined in July after being shown the server through a friend

(4a) How can we be certain that you will remain active on the server upon being accepted for a volunteer staffing position? -

The server has become a place I very much enjoy and I don’t see myself leaving any time soon

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

I understand

(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: Fail RP is going against or doing something that your character would actually do in a roleplay scenario. This also incorporates many other rules and is a very all- encompassing term. An example of Fail RP would be taking someone out of an animagus form without seeing them transform. 

2. Be respectful: Rule 2 is another all-encompassing rule which basically means that you should just be nice to each other, disrespect can take many forms, either that be hatespeech or name calling, none of it is accepted and it falls under rule 2.

3. No RDM: RDM or Random Death Match is the act of killing another player without a valid roleplay reason. A good example of this would be a student using a damaging spell such as Mostro to kill another student. 

4. Obey staff and RP leaders: You must always follow the guidance of your roleplay leader, and even more so staff members. The only time you may ignore a request from your roleplay leader is if they are actively telling you to break a server rule, in that case you may contact staff and inform them of this. When it comes to staff you must always follow their instructions. 

5. No free-spelling: Free-spelling (commonly abbreviated to FS) is the act of casting spells without roleplay purpose, the enforcement of this rule however can greatly depend on which spell is being cast. Cosmetic spells are the least severe and usually do not require any sort of action besides in roleplay if asked repeatedly to stop by a Prefect. Spells such as Stupefy, Expelliarmus and other spells which directly affect other players can also be dealt with in roleplay by a Prefect, most commonly receiving a detention after a warning. 

6. No metagaming: Metagaming is the act of using knowledge that you have learnt outside of roleplay, in roleplay. A good example of metagaming, usually amongst lower year players is calling out Dark Forces based on the job role's name or how they look. 

7. Do not mic spam or chat spam: Mic spam is the act of using the ingame voice chat feature to intentionally play loud or obnoxious sounds which actively disrupts roleplay. Chat spam is doing the same, but in chat form. An example of micspam would be playing music in the courtyard through your microphone. An example of chat spam would be flooding ooc chat with useless messages. 

8. Owlpost is for RP purposes only: Owlpost is a system used on the server to communicate within roleplay. Using owlpost to talk about something ooc, or owlposting messages which contain content which is failrp or metagaming breaches this rule. A common fail-owlpost would be messaging "Where are you Tarqwin?" or revealing another player without evidence. 

9. No ERP: ERP or Erotic-roleplay is the act of doing sex things (YUCKY!!!) in roleplay. For example, a player making sexual noises at the back of a classroom or using the /me command to make inappropriate gestures. 

10. No exploiting or cheating of any kind: Exploiting or cheating is the act of using unintentional features to your advantage. This could be anything from AFK exploiting to avoid the server's built in system that kicks you after a set time. Or using aimbot or bunny hopping macros to gain an unfair advantage in PvP. 

(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 came on just to minge.  I quickly began to enjoy myself and have realized that I would like to add and aid to experience of others.  Initially I was interested in applying for GM, but with all GM spots currently filled I would still like to volunteer to help the server and will reconsider applying for GM if the position were to ever open up again.

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

My optimism.  I tend to think that the things I do aren’t good enough when they in fact are.  

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

Multitasking.  I tend to get very focused on what I’m currently doing and can zone in on that a bit too much. 

(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 believe that there is a lack of staff during the current hours that I play.  In being a part of the staff team, I could work to help fill that gap and be there to guide and inform players. 

(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) -


(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). -

Yes.  Once for HS and once for RDM

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

There is an importance to both as without either the server would be unable to run.

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

Time Management - 7
Flexibility - 8
Communication - 7 
Patience - 8
Creativity - 9

(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 towards asking another staff member for help.  I would first reach to those staff who are currently online and if there are none, I would pose a question to the staff and do what fits best for the moment and use the knowledge I possess of the situation.

(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? -


(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) -

The only reason I take this stance is due to not really seeing you prefect or do much RP leader wise, it's just because you need to be able to handle minges and trolls without it effecting you mentality and how you staff, other reasons people had against you on your previous app are "somewhat valid" but personally I have no reason to believe you're an alt (after speaking with you about it) or that you would be childish enough to "LeAk To JoE".

Just get on more RP intensive stuff and if you can come out of your shell enough to use your mic more regularly that would be great, if not don't feel forced into doing so as there are plenty of "mutes" who either currently staff or have staffed previously, good luck.

Ebony is on server during a timezone when we do desperately need staff. She's nice, friendly, responsable and knows the rules.
I think she'd be a great staff member and the she should be given a go.

Hi Ebony, I pretty much agree with everyone here. Although I barely
see you in RP situations for reasons as Cauli has stated, you playing in
a time when staff is needed... I have seen you perfecting and such when
I do get to see you online. I would love to see you do some "mock trial" type sits,
Maybe tag along with a mod for some? [I'm not sure if you have done this before]
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck!

+1 from me.

One of the nicest people on the server I think she will fit very nicely within the staff team.


Literally the nicest girl I've ever met on the sever. Super friendly and easy going. I've never seen anything bad from Ebony. For me its a 10000000000000% yes.
