Your CKEY (Including any alts you have): Midijamz
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have): 26carat#4380
How often are you online to play/admin? (Timezone): I’m on quite a bit now, slow season for work for me currently. CST. On pretty much all the time in the afternoon to low pop early-early morning.
What changes, if any, would you bring?: With me being admin I would enforce the MRP ruleset and encourage those looking for a more chaotic time to go to the Golden station, while also creating mini-events on the station that encourage roleplay.
How old are you?: 25
Why do you want to be an admin?: I created this application in response to the current status of the Sage server. I understand why it happened - during the connection issues, Sage stayed (somewhat) populated due to it being less hectic than golden. Then when the connection issues resolved, everyone chose the more populated one. As such, it feels like Sage has turned into the new Golden, which is really unfortunate. I’m willing to admin on the Golden station as well, but I highly prefer Sage.
How long have you been playing SS13?: I’ve been playing off and on for over 6 years now, but last year was when I really got into it, and the last few months I’ve been totally addicted.
How long have you been playing BeeStation?: I first joined Bee in August 2019 after server hopping for a while trying to find a home. TGcode is the best. Ever since the Sage server I’ve really been invested in Bee.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?: 7.5/10. I have familiarity with nearly every job on the station, and while the rare occurrence surprises me occasionally, I feel like I’ve gotten pretty experienced. I mainly play command roles or roles like Chef or Paramedic that are really fun to roleplay.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an admin?: I’ve never been an admin before, but I am a fast learner.
Have you ever been an admin on another server? This is not limited to SS13: I’ve been an admin on an ARK server and a Minecraft server.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?: Beanos_Clinton, though I mainly used that on another server when I forgot the password to this one.
Your strengths: I am creative and love to make sure that people have a good time. I DJ for a living, and I feel like that in a strange way carries over to being an admin - when everyone has fun, I have fun.
Your weaknesses: I feel like sometimes it is hard for me to forgive repeat offenders.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?: After playing SS13 for a while, it’s hard to get mad over things that happen. As such, I’m pretty chill. However, it really disappoints me when robust as hell people that know the game back and forth use it to grief the game and ruin other people’s experiences completely intentionally.
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?: I think the single best trait is to not act on impulse. In a game where there are SO many variables, so many people interacting, it is easy to look at a situation from one narrow lens and lower the judgement hammer down in a matter of seconds when it really could be more complex.
What makes a staff team good?: We are playing a game, right? A good staff team makes sure everyone has the opportunity to have fun. Rules are in place so everyone can have fun. If someone just runs around and kills everyone on the station, that might be fun for ONE person, but not everyone. Bee’s rules are light, but they serve a purpose - when the rules are enforced, fun is to be had.
What is a staff team’s purpose?: At the very core of it, the staff team is to serve the players and to enforce the rules of the server. I don’t think it has to be any more complex than that. However, once the rules are enforced, it is always fun for the admin to non-destructively surprise the players with things that may alter the course of the game lightly.
What kind of player are you?: After really digging in and learning the ropes of SS13, I realized that MRP is the best SS13 for me. With such a myriad of things to do, it makes roleplaying really immersive and intense, even if it’s all 2D pixel garbage on an engine that’s nearly as old as me.
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: I don’t really think I’d change that much, aside from having those new powers of course. I’ll still be playing my same characters and still be shooting the shit in OOC. If anything would change, I’d be listening to the praises and complaints in OOC a bit more attentively.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?: Nice prank, clown, but that gun probably needs to come back since there’s a chance it is an antag’s objective. The clown can be dealt with IC - after all, the HoS was the victim of it himself, but the gun probably needs to come back. If someone doesn’t go out and try to grab it immediately, I’d probably monitor it for a few minutes before moving it back into its locker.
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?: I think the first step to conducting an ahelp is to get your information first. Bwoink the dude, and ask him why he’s doing that, and why he thinks it is okay to do that as a non-antagonist. It’s definitely looking like a server ban for a few days, with the next offense being longer.
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?: Nothing, though I’ll probably make fun of him at the end of the round.
Thanks for reading. I’m looking forward to hearing your response.
