Your CKEY (Including any alts you have): bloons3
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have): bloons3
How often are you online to play/admin? (Timezone): Evening US Eastern Time
What changes, if any, would you bring?: I’d like to work on implementing low-consequence bans/warnings for malicious behavior on MRP.
How old are you?: 21
Why do you want to be an admin?: BeeStation needs new admins to cover timeslots when no admins are available.
How long have you been playing SS13?: 2-3 years
How long have you been playing BeeStation?: 2-3 years
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?: 6? It depends.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an admin?: 6. If anything, I try not to get personally involved in situations, and try to moderate with a consistent policy. I hate everyone equally.
Have you ever been an admin on another server? This is not limited to SS13: I moderate a medium chat-Discord.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?:
Your strengths: I understand that a good admin maintains a consistent policy. Treat everyone equally, and don’t play favorites or railroad anyone.
I don’t want to admin to stroke my e-peen, I just want to bring MRP’s higher standards for behavior back.
Your weaknesses: I am employed and in school. My availability is variable. I have engaged in shittery in the past.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?: Watching a single person go out of their way to ruin the round/game for everyone else, especially when the “Gods” (admins) aren’t watching. There are a few characters on Bee where once Mommy and Daddy go away, they start murdering and the station’s floors become slick with blood.
The whole N-word debacle as well. There are servers where historical racial slurs are acceptable. This is not one of them.
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?: Impartiality
What makes a staff team good?: Not caring about an incident (getting hotheaded at a mega-shitter), not letting individual incidents get under their skin.
Being available to moderate, but not at the expense of their personal life. Burnout is a thing.
What is a staff team’s purpose?: Maintain a community where people feel accepted and welcome. Circlejerk/insular communities are fun for the participants, but not really accepting of newcomers.
What kind of player are you?: Unfortunately, borg main. dons dunce cap
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: I feel that Qwerty will whack me on the head and make me start coding things.
I’ll probably end up log-diving for ban-appeals or player reports. As to the actual decision? It’s up to the banninng admin. I’m
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
HoS’s gun is a traitor objective, so kinda iffy on it. Might do a quick check and see if it is someone’s objective, and possibly replace it.
Did the HoS instigate, or was he innocently walking to the bar for a cold one before the clown slipped them and yoinked their gat?
Clown antag? Does clown have a history of antagging against Sec? Is this during NukeOps (where HoS would be within their right to execute the clown) or a green shift?
Overall, if the Clown started it and is diagnosed as shitter, possible note. If it’s a traitor objective, maybe it gets yeeted back from z-space and lands outside the HoS’s window.
If it isn’t an objective, then the HoS gets a valuable lesson not to get robusted.
(Overall, I like this question and wouldn’t mind having a further discussion on it in this thread. It’s nice and juicy.)
A non-antagonist is sabotaging the Atmospherics loop and pumping plasma into the distro, along with dragging around a canister and releasing it into the atmosphere. Assuming that another admin is cleaning up the after-effects, how do you conduct the ahelp with him?:
Step 1) Check that they’re actually not an antag (Brainwashed, subverted borg, etc)
Step 2) AJail or otherwise prevent them from causing more damage if they are continuing to do so.
Step 3) Try and start it off neutral, see if I can get them to admit their reasoning/motivation for doing the action. I’d rather have them admit fault (or their own mistaken premise for antagging) than go log diving and factually prove their grief.
Step 4) Sentencing: Repeated malicious behavior would warrant a harsher sentence. Likely a job ban, if not total server ban.
A chemist who is working alone accidentally mixes an explosive mixture inside of his chem dispenser, instantly killing himself and destroying the machine, along with exposing Chemistry to space. Nobody else was injured aside from him as a result of his actions. What do you do?:
I don’t feel that this would require admin intervention. I’ve done this scenario myself, once or twice being Walter White.
Chemistry has airlocks and firelocks for a reason. Boom-boom goes off, firelocks drop down and seal the room, and the situation contains itself. Hopefully the CMO notices that one of their chemists suddenly isn’t, and calls Engineering to fix the breach.
