How old are you?: 19, turn 20 in august
Why do you want to be an admin?: Per an audit and my own reflection, I realized I spend a lot of time talking about how I wish the server would be in particular to how staff handle things. However, I can only talk so much before it feels silly not to pitch in myself.

On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an admin?: 6-7. I’ve definitely played with admin tools when I debug code, and I’ve certainly poked around in depth with stuff, but I haven’t had nor needed to use some more common admin things like PMs, bans, etc.

What makes a staff team good?: Cohesion and communication. Getting along also important and adjacent to cohesion.

How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: I will definitely be concerned regarding how my conduct is viewed on larger scale. Out of context perceptions, etc.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
Addressing in order of priority:
Restore the gun to locker, this is a round limited part of the issue, I can always go grab logs afterwards.
Ahelp with clown, checking notes.
No notes? Note him, explain why that is bad
Got notes(1-2 related notes)? Jobban from clown, explain further incidents may not be treated nicely.
Got a mean streak? 1 day+ global ban at minimum. Wouldn’t go further than 2 weeks.
Mile wide mean streak? Consult with a headmin over perma.
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?:
Addressing in order of priority:
Ahelp the perpatrator, check hours and notes.
Low hours, no other guidance? Yeet.
Low hours, with guidance that was an antag? Give low hour buddy a brief ban(>1hr) to go reread rules.
Low hours, guidance from non-antag? Bwoink the person providing guidance. Follow these same steps. Unless they have a *really * good and legitimate reason guide will be beaned with a perma sentence and a request to appeal. The guided person will get hit with a read rules ban as previous branch of the ticket flow.
High hours, no notes for this sort of thing? Lengthy and potentially permanent ban.
High hours, and notes for this sort of thing? Perma with a request for a vouch from another server.
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?:
For simplicity I will take accidentally as saying they are a newer player for the frame of the question. While a bwoink isn’t necessary, I’d definitely PM them something along the following since, hey, they may not know where to find the wiki or how to mhelp.
“Hey, I see you’re a newer player interested in chemistry. You may find this guide insert chemistry wiki guide link helpful. Additionally, if you look in the top right, you can contact me and other players who are here to teach the game under the mentor tab, using the mhelp button. You are not in trouble, so don’t worry about the situation from an administration standpoint.”
