This application is for Revelation, Direwolf20 1.12, Interactions, Ultimate Reloaded, Omnifactory and Continuum. You can only be picked for one, so list your preferred server to staff. (The first one being the most preferred, the last one being the least.) (If you can't imagine staffing for one or two of the servers listed above then don't mention them in the list below.)
1) Direwolf20 1.12.2 Basic Information
Name: Henry Minecraft Username: BloodSkals Age: 19 Languages you speak: French, English, and I can read/speak a bit of Dutch. Country + Time Zone: Belgium, CEST Discord Name and ID*: BloodSkals#7610 Do you have a microphone?: Yes.
Can you join the forums everyday?: Yes I can. How long have you been playing on the Crafter's Land servers?: Two/two and half week for 96 hours. On average, how many hours do you play a day and during which part of the day?**: I tend to play up to 10 hours a day to various games, at least 3-4 on Minecraft. Have you read and understood the responsibilities of the position and permissions you receive with this rank?: Yes, I understand that this position offers not only rights but also responsabilities that I do not take lightly. On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being Nothing and 10 Being Absolutely Everything, how well do you know the mods and contents of the Modpack?: I would say 6 to 7. I help myself with online guides for what I don't know.
What can you offer us if you were chosen?: I can offer my free time and knowledge, a Western Europe schedule, improve response time to complaints and requests, relieve some of the work off of the actual staffs (in the limit of my abilities). My offers do not concern the staffs only, I am also applying to enhance the players' situation. I plan to seriously put some order in the server that looks like hell sometimes. Have you ever been banned and if so, why?: No. A short description of your strengths and weaknesses:
- Different timezone and schedule;
- Accustomed to the position;
- Quick learner;
- Patient; - I can argue about anything and prove it; - I have a good contact with most of the players. Weaknesses :
- Not a tech guy;
- I curse sometimes;
- Strict; - I tend to keep recidivist players on sight;
- I can't stand disrespect, everyone must be respected. What is the one thing you can improve yourself upon?: Cursing and cooling off when I'm harassed and insulted. What experience do you have as a staff member? Exemplify: I have been admin on a CS:GO jailbreak server (it's French), moderator on two Minecraft servers, and moderator on a GTA RP server, so I'm used to big communities What other modpacks/gamemodes have you played? Elaborate: I've been playing a lot on All The Mods 3. I also played on Direwolf 1.7.10, FTB Monster, Pixelmon. Is there a mod in which you excel at, if so, which one and how?: Currently I've done Botania, Blood Magic, Tinkers' Construct, and some enderIO, AE2. I'll soon dust off my skills for Thaumcraft and Astral Sorcery (I'm mostly a mage).
Considering this, I have pretty much the knowledge to help a newbie to start in an efficient way. Do you have a screen recorder? Are you willing to download and use one?: I do have NVIDIA Shadowplay and OBS, I'm willing to them use in any case that would require proofs or else. Where do you see yourself as a Crafter's Land staff member in the future?: I'm enjoying myself a lot on the DW20 1.12.2 server with a great community, I don't plan to quickly climb the ladder but I'm here to improve the way things works and why not climb the ladder later on.
Most important, I see myself on a great and stable community, with less complaints about the staff activity and a place where everyone feels comfortable. What suggestions would you like to see from us and how can you help us improve the server?: I'm willing to improve the relation between staffs and players (currently meh), improve the activity of the server by making and participating to projects such as a portal hub (made) and a player market (working on). As a helper I plan to put some order in the server and make it more enjoyable. How much do you know about the helper rank? Elaborate: (permissions, usage, principle/concept): My opinion is that a helper is here to help, guide, and handle players by taking the right action. Mostly manage the chat to prevent profanity, abuses and preventing problems. Being a helper also mean that we've got to consider muting or jail players for what they've done, and warn the higher staffs.
Except from what has been said above in the template, being a helper gives it a certain power when it comes to anything, meaning that it provides responsabilities but also power to fix and solve problems.
A helper also helps higher staffs when they're dealing with too much players, relieving them from work a helper could totally do. What knowledge do you have of how the staff operate today (communication, coordination, activity)?:
Nowadays staff operate with a detailled hierarchy to deal with problems with ease and precision, most of the time behind the scene.
Each staff has a role and respect his role and assignement in an efficient way. However they work as a team and share their thoughts and other stuffs.
In the current state I'm glad to see that some staffs are concerned about servers where they are not affected and take time to talk and "chill" with the players.
You see a player abusing a glitch, what do you do?: I would immediately take proofs (screenshots/recording), give him a warn and send what I've got to an higher staff. After then if I haven't been seen I would ask said-player if he knows that it is forbiden and why he did that. A player lost his items due to a server crash, what do you do?: I would redirect him to the right forum category and ask him to fill a rollback request. Help out with my own materials in case I've got what is needed. How would you handle a situation if you got targeted by trolls?: I would warn them on the chat, advise if they are breaking rules or not and which, then act from mute to jail if the situation tend to degenerates. A player is speaking a a foreign language in chat, what do you do?: I would PM him and use a translator to ask him to speak English and explain that he must speak English in the main chat.
**You must live up to how many hours you say you will play.
