(1.) What is your SteamID?

(1a) What is your most recent ingame name? - 

ravenclawPride Tyrone D Bigeye  ravenclawPride 

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

Prestige 3, Year 6

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? - 


(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. - 

5PM-12PM and/or 7AM-11AM CST

(3.) How old are you? - 

19 years old 

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - 

Sometime in mid-2018 is when I started. I played off and on until about 2019, 
and started playing for real some time around probably April-ish of 2019. 
And found the server through my friend.

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - 

I have been pretty active for several months now.
There was a gap in my playtime for a little bit recently because my PC wasn’t working, 
but the rest of the time I have been active, and I still really enjoy the server and the players. 
I don’t see myself getting off the server any time soon.

(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - 

Yes, I do.

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

Yes, I do.

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
 List Rules below:
 1: No Fail-RP:

        Don’t do anything your in-game character would not do
      (EX: Not playing your role correctly, Harry Potter killing Dumbledore, committing suicide, etc.)

 2: Disrespectful, hateful, and offensive behavior/speech: 
Do not Direct Hateful speech towards anyone (racism, bigotry, sexism, etc.) Show everyone common courtesy and show them respect, regardless of their opinions. Slight disrespect and minor insults in character within the realms of reason/RP ar tolerable (EX: Draco calling Hermione a mudblood, or Slytherins saying that they are better than Hufflepuffs).

 3: No RDM:

           Do not cast damaging spells on another player without an RP reason in or out of the school 
        (EX: RDMing an unrevealed dark force member if you are a light force.)

 4: Obey Staff and RP Leaders:

           Obey staff and RP Leaders as long as they aren’t telling you to break the rules. 
          (if they are breaking rules, I would ask another staff member to come help or make a staff report)
          Obey RP Leaders in order of rank. For EX: if a prefect tells you to do something and a Head Boy/Girl tells you to do another, 
          you obey the Head Boy/Girl unless told otherwise by a teacher or headmaster.

 5: No Massive Free Spelling: 
Do not cast spells, especially damaging spells, without a valid RP reason (EX. of valid RP reason: prefects using stupify to arrest a student or Aurors using a damaging spell to kill a revealed dark force.) There’s some leeway for undamaging spells (Ex: students using Rictusempra on each other in the halls with consent) but repeated casting after being warned not to could still get you in trouble.

 6: No Metagaming:

       Do not use any information that you shouldn’t have. This includes:
      Do not use information that your current character hasn’t gained (if you die, then you lose that information.)
      Do not use the job title above a person’s head to gain info. 
      Do not switch jobs to get away from a situation you put yourself in 
      (example: changing to a prefect because you broke pts and don’t want to get arrested.)

 7: No mic/chat spam:

              Do not make loud noises or play music even if it’s being sung by you.
             Do not spam the same word or phrase over and over again, 
             whether it's through the mic or the chatbox.

 8: No FalseAdverts:    

             Use adverts for RP reasons only. (Adverts not to use, example: “I need help”, “party at hagrid's”),

          (Adverts you’re able to use EX: prefects advertising rfd’s, teachers adverting pts, etc.)

 9: No ERP: 
Do not do anything that could be considered erotic(EX: crouching up and down behind someone, or saying something sexual or suggestive.) There are kids playing, and nobody wants to see that kind of thing here.

 10: Do Not Avoid The AFK System/Map Exploit:

       Do not go outside of the map (Using a ghost character to fly through the walls and out the map, or spy on sits)
      Do not purposely avoid the 20-minute timer (example: manually moving or setting binds that move you around every now and then without any                    other actions.)

(5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - 
A person that comes on the server that only intends to troll and ruin the server’s RP 
and other people’s enjoyment, or play selfishly at the expense of everyone else.

(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - 

I want to be a mod because I just truly like helping people on the server. I enjoy helping first years 
(and anyone else) understand how the server works, I enjoy answering people’s questions and resolving 
problems if I can. I’ve always stuck to being a teacher or prefect because it is just fun to help other students that
are starting out like I did.
(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - 

I tend to not catch onto sarcasm, but I think my ability to 
stay chill and roll with things cancels that out pretty well.

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - 

I think having me as staff would benefit the server because I am active during prefect laws, I know the rules, 
I don’t get into any trouble, and I actually enjoy the server and helping people. What sets me apart is my care 
for the people on the server, and IRL I work in the student services department of my college (customer service), 
so I have experience with dealing with people that need help with something and making sure I am kind, helpful, respectful, and so on.

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

No, I have not been and am not staff on any other servers.

(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - 

Never have I ever. 

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - 

I believe that players are the main priority, and their enjoyment is most important. 
The server wouldn’t exist without the players and the community, after all.
 Not to say that staff aren’t important, though. 
The staff are the ones that keep everything running smoothly and maintain the server atmosphere, 
letting everyone have a good experience in the first place. 
Staff have been given the tools to fend for themselves and handle players for the most part, 
but if they really needed help from me and I’m not in a high-priority situation, 
I would ask that the player give me one second and help out the staff, because staff are people too. 

(12) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, response time, etc) - 
Patience - (10) - I’m not easily bothered at all. I’m a very chill guy, so if someone is being rude, not listening,

 or just generally being disruptive, I’ll try to talk things out with them and find out what’s going on and how we can work it out.
 Rules are rules though, so if someone is being REALLY disruptive, the hammer’s gotta come down, but I try to give people leniency for the most part.

Response Time - (10) - I’ll drop whatever I’m doing at the time when a situation comes up.

If I’m already assisting another player or staff member, 
I’ll finish with them first and make sure the current situation is handled before moving to deal with another.
 If I’m unavailable or AFK at the time, I’ll make sure to check back in with everyone to follow up on anything I missed if needed.

Communication - (9.5) - Customer service is kinda my whole thing, and a big part of that is communication. 
Communication with players and staff is very important so that everyone is on the same page. 
(EX: I will tell people that I am handling the situation if a report comes in, 
to make sure they do not think I am ignoring them and so another staff member doesn’t accidentally pull them again). 
If I am already in the middle of a situation, I will make sure to tell them I am doing something but I’ll be right on it ASAP.

Leadership- (9) - I’m good with giving and receiving orders, keeping track of the rules, 

maintaining order and atmosphere, and I can work really well in a team. 
Teaching and prefecting is basically what I’m doing all the time, so being in a leadership position is very natural to me.

(13.) If you do not know how to handle a situation in a mod-sit, what do you do? - 
I would ask another staff member for assistance within a reasonable time if

 someone is available either in-game or on steam/discord, and if not, 
I would attempt to follow the rules as best I can in that situation, 
then ask how I could have handled it better afterward since I’m always recording. 

(14.) You understand and realize, that by applying for staff on the server also means, that you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to RP freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues at hand no matter the situation? - 

Yes, I fully understand.

(15.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If they were accepted, please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) - 

It was up for 30 days and got locked. This was my first application 
(I had no former experience on any forums before that thread and did not know what people were looking for on a mod app) 
so it was really rough. I’ve gotten a lot of advice about it and have tried my best to improve.

Hello Tyrone! I've seen you've come back recently (https://imgur.com/a/KAj6glF), what is a very good thing. I've seen you doing prefect job and RP leader jobs. My advice for you is to try to stay active.


Good luck in your app!

Hi Tyrone! You get a big +1 from me.

I've seen you be very active during my playing hours and you are always helpful and kind to everyone whether you are a prefect, Heir of Ravenclaw or a professor. I think you have a good balance of being very chill and friendly while also enforcing the rules, and that's a good combination for a moderator. You also seem to handle minges and otherwise disruptive students very well which I appreciate. I have never seen you lose your temper even while perfecting/teaching in the most chaotic classes and you are good at explaining the rules to new players. 

The rules in your application are explained pretty well, although I wouldn't mind seeing more examples. 

Nevertheless I hope you get trial and GL on your app!

I think you are a good choice for Moderator due to how active you are, I've seen you on everytime I go on, you follow the rules, you prefect and you are a calm person. I think you'd do well as a Moderator. I believe you deserve a shot.
Maybe you could prefect a bit more but from my perspective you are a good prefect and you know how to handle players well when prefecting. Good Luck with your Application!

With that being said, my vote will be +1.

Neutral to +1

I always see you enforcing rules and doing a good job. Try to do some Great Halls more often, though.

I usually do prefect meetings and professor meetings bc I don't often get the chance to do a GH and when a GH comes up there's usually someone that picks Dumbledore before me. However, I will definitely try to host GH's more often. Thx for the response.

Ive seen Tyrone constantly prefect this past week, he even came to me for some prefecting binds.
I wanna see you host either a prefect meeting or a great hall, but from what I've seen you're determined to make a difference.
For that you receive my +1.
Keep your activity strong and try to do one of the things I suggested, best of luck to you.

I am so happy you decided now was the time, 
I know you waited to apply from the convos we have had 
and I am so happy to see this app.
You are always asking to host prefect meetings. 
You are always so willing to learn.
I know you know the rules.
You are constantly on a prefect role whenever we are on together.
Like I said before I'm so happy to see this app!! 
BIG +1 from me
Good luck <3<3

Tyrone made efforts to improve the relationship between me and him recently, showing that he can let things go, which I appreciate.
Tyrone is on always prefecting, always being cool to people, and has a good attitude.
Prefect meetings, GH's and anything that proves you can take initiative in any situation is what needs to be seen.
