Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have): jixs4v

How old are you?: 18
Why do you want to be a moderator?: Mostly annoyed at the plethora of griefers who keep littering the server, also lowpop isn’t covered enough. The report backlog could use some dealing with too. (Also Ruko told me to apply)

How long have you been playing BeeStation?: All my SS13 playtime basically
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?: Solid 6, I know about mechanics but I’m not the best at combat.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an administrator? (this can include past games): 3
Have you ever been an admin or moderator on another server? This is not limited to SS13: A bit of adminning on a long dead unimportant discord
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?: exadv1
Your strengths: My experience with admin tools, willingness to help and timezone
Your weaknesses: My history, and the fact I’m a student so my activity might be patchy at certain times of the year
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?: I’d say bigotry and NRP players
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?: Fairness.
What makes a staff team good?: Communication to ensure issues are dealt with in a fair and consistent way and to ensure proper coordination.
What is a staff team’s purpose?: To moderate the server to ensure an experience for the players which aligns with the server’s design objectives.
What kind of player are you?: I love interacting and roleplaying with people but have my bouts of hyperfocusing on mechanics like engineering and science.
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: Better lowpop coverage, less reports in the backlog.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
I’d first evaluate the circumstances: Is the clown an antag? What lead up to this event?
I’d then, if the clown wasn’t an antag, would bwoink the clown and ask him for his side of the story. Since this, even with proper escalation, is an act of self antag (Stealing the HOS’ gun is Grand Larceny, a capital crime), I’d probably remind the clown of this, and apply a scaling note or ban based on past history. I’d probably also remind them that their job as a clown isn’t to be an asshole but to provide entertainment to the crew.
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 an admin is cleaning up the after-effects, how do you conduct the ahelp with him?:
I’d check his account first. Do they have low hours? Is their account new? In that case, it’s probably a griefer. I’d bwoink them, asking why they did it, and if I get an obvious troll reply or just no response, I’d probably apply a permanent ban. If they reply telling me they weren’t aware this was a bannable offence, I’d remind them that major grief is not allowed on the server and that they are breaking the rules. I’d then remind them to read the rules and apply a long ban for major grief.
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’d first bwoink and remind them to be less reckless next time. Even if they didn’t hurt anyone other than them, the fact that they exploded is bad. I’d then apply a scaling note/roleban based on previous history of this behaviour.
