Zane's Halo Head of Roleplay (RP Manager) Application

#1
Disclaimer: This is a new position that is being introduced to the SBS Community under the Halo Server that gives focus of the Role Play over to the Halo Head of Roleplay allowing the Server Manager to focus on the development and full managerial side across the whole server. The Server Manager still helps control the RP since they manage the server as a whole. The Halo Head of RP role was created by Zubey.

(1.) What is your SteamID and your Steam URL? - STEAM_0:1:197128991 | https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198354523711/

(1a) What is your most common name for the SBS community? – Zane/Ensign Zane/Zane Snow-Nova

(1b.) How old are you? – 20

(2.) What position are you applying for? – Halo Head of RP [RP Manager]

(3.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - Late May/Early June. Found this through TeamSpeak from Elios and Seraphin. Decided to join and have been active playing ever since. I have been a member of the community of SBS since December 2016.

(4.) Community staff must be active at a higher standard when compared to staff, do you understand that you may be let go for inactivity? – I completely understand. Before School started back around, I was spending 12-16+ Hours a day for 30 days straight keeping up on the activity. Since school started, I have been doing about 3-14 hours online a day on server and about 6-8 hours monitoring questions and helping on the discord when I am offline the server.

(5.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - Hello, I am a Musician that knows quite a lot of different instruments and are learning all the time. I would like to be staff on Halo because for the past 3 months on the server I have been devoted to immersing myself with the Server RP culture. I feel like I can help a lot with bringing and solidifying the RP for players as it seems a lot of players are confused on some of the RP that the server entails.

(6.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? – The thing that I feel like I need to work on the most is learning to take a break from something. I get very focused and narrowminded when it comes to playing and I ignore the time as it moves by. One second it will be 8 am then it will be 5 pm. I need to learn to be able to get up take a break and come back to focusing on what I need to get done instead of just pushing through.

(7.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? – The thing that would set me apart from any of the other applicants for this position is that I am engulfed daily with the RP on the Halo. I understand a lot of the gray area rules within the server and surrounding the server. I talk to players and staff daily coming up with different ideas and new shifts to keep the server more interesting for players and then bring them up to Higher ups. With this addition of this position I can come apply things within the RP myself and work with the new Server Manager and Zubey to be able to get things done efficiently.
Another thing that I feel that sets me apart is activity on the server. Every chance of free time I jump onto the server (Which is about 4-18 hours a day). When I am online, I observe the characteristics of player and Roleplay at this time already to try to help what is already stated above. I would be able to keep in constant communication for the Halo Community (Thanks to Discord/Forums).


(8.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) –

StarByStarGaming Hogwarts- Moderator (No Longer)
Goliad Gaming- Head-Admin Battlefront RP/Manager of Civil War RP (Both No Longer in Existence Due To Ownership Problems) (No Longer)
StarByStarGaming Halo- Moderator/Trial-Admin (Current)


(9.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) –

Patience – 8.5
Response Time – 9
Communication – 9
Professionalism/Maturity – 9
Friendliness – 8 (Like I said before People are afraid of my Low Deep Voice at times which affects this score)
Loyalty – 10
Seriousness – 9.5

I won’t Rate anything at a 10 except Loyalty because I feel like there is always room to improve


(10.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If you are no longer Staff on any SBS server(s), please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) –

I can not get a link to the first two previous staff applications as they were on the old forum database. Both staff applications were accepted to a Moderator rank.

The first one I resigned from the team due to having a lot of personal real-life stuff come up all at once.

The second one I resigned from the team due to becoming to sick to take part in staffing as it took all my time to stay healthy.

The Third One https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=5958 was Accepted. I resigned from this position because I became very sick again.

Halo Server Manager https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=8512 I closed it when the addition of the role of Halo Head of Roleplay position was created and opened for the server.



(11.) (Optional) Provide examples of situations you would handle in the position you are applying for here and how you would handle them. –

(There is a lot of information here, Thank you for taking the Time to Read)


Like I said before, a lot of the rules on the server are very vague and need brought to light. On the server most of the rules are by word of mouth and can be lost in context from player to player. The first thing I would do to help solve this problem would be to start working on a document that would help new players with no knowledge to be able to read the document and understand what they must do. An example of this document would be the Hogwarts Compendium of Rules. Things that would be most likely touched upon on this document would be Base protocols (PTL, Briefing/Debrief, Generator Room, Medic Bay, Airforce ATC protocols), Naval Frigate Protocols (AF capability of entering, ODST Drop Pods, Engine Room, Lockdown Protocols) etc.

Another project I would task my self immediately to do is to help fix the problems that are occurring within the SOS. I will be go deep into the Halo Lore and come up with some of the rules (working with the Arbiter at times ) for the SoS so that there is an actual laydown of rules that the server can be aware of. I would focus on trying to revamp the SoS with the new Server Manager and Zubey to be able to get players to get excited to play SoS again. I think some of the problems that SOS faces is that they don’t have specific jobs within events or goals so I will come up with some ideas for that as well.

Now if people had problems with figuring out some of the rules on the server I would step in and help guide them on the proper knowledge that goes with such rules. If a Suggestion was brought to the Staff Teams attention and accepted under the new Server Manager, I would look and find a way for it to properly fall into the RP settings of the server and adjust the rules to fit this new addition accordingly.

I would monitoring the UNSC armies branches (AF, Medics, Navy, ONI, SF, Marines, ODST) to make sure that the regiments on the server are fallowing there rules and guidelines that are for their regiments and making sure that the Commanding Officers within those regiments are correctly guiding their soldiers to make sure that the RP of the server is being correctly fallowed. I will be also help by setting up a more clear function for each of the branches to know so there is not a question to what their job entails on the server so that there is better RP for the players.

I will use this as an example: Part of the RP for the AF is the ATC system where they will need to do correct takeoff and landing. (Callsign, Reason for takeoff, Clearance Codes). The reason they need to do this is because of the Insurgent Faction that tries to infiltrate the base. Now if we have no knowledge of an AF member doing such actions it can be considered an Insurgent due to not having a proper takeoff/landing Codes. If I noticed AF continuously not doing the correct sequence of takeoff and landing, I would go to their Commanding Officer and see that they get trained appropriately so the RP can continue to progress appropriately.

I would be monitoring the progress of players as they move through the ranks (I already do this) and see how the best for the soon to be commanding officers for the server and who is ready to lead. I will be working and getting feedback from the CO of the battalion that person is to monitor the progression of the persons CO Training. If there is no CO for the person, I would take it under my responsibility to train the person for the capabilities for leadership. [Part of this is HighCom Responsibility as well] On the Flip side of the CO capabilities is that if a CO/HighCom/SoS Leader was not making the cut for communication, leadership, training, Activity etc. I would pull them into my office on base/Discord and explain what is coming to my attention of what they are doing/What someone brought to me to talk it over with them. Depending on the severity of what would be going on they would be warned/demoted for what happened.

Part of the responsibilities that I would need to do as Halo Head of Roleplay is communication. Things that would be worked on for this position has an impact on the server. I would work directly with the Server Manager with the additions that they are adding into the server so that we are continuously on the same page. Likewise, with the Staff Manager, I would be in direct communication with them so that the Staff Team would understand the changes that have occurred, so everyone is on the same page of how things are supposed to work within the Roleplay.

Zane's probably one of those people who's even more serious about role play than I am, and that's saying something(Gina is also high on the bar for role play seriousness). Not just for "events" but in general. When he role plays, he's serious about it. That's why I think he'd make a great HORP.

Do I play Halo rp? I do not, but I have role played with him on Hogwarts, Clone Wars, and a war role play we were apart of for a few months. He's serious about role play in general. 

Am I biased? Some of yall will think so, but I've seen first hand through many role play servers how he role plays and how serious he is about it.

Thread will be locked. App accepted. Read https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=8591
Though his app wasn't up long I knew it was highly likely I would end up picking him for Head of Roleplay. Him and Miles/Lee are by a good margin the most serious about RP and it shows. I have chosen Zane for HoR and Miles/Lee for Staff Manager.
