Your CKEY (Including any alts you have):
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have):
How often are you online to help? (Timezone):
New York (EDT/GMT-4), typically later.
What changes, if any, would you bring?:
I can only guarantee bringing my volunteer services as a member of administration, though I have had a couple of nice ideas by other people in memory. I personally believe I am a new face to a majority of the staff team, though I prefer using “mystery3525” or “mystery” as my reference.
How old are you?:
Why do you want to be a moderator?:
I have been on the edge of applying for a while, among other big commitments in my life, but today while playing Sage, I experienced a (3, 6, 12) bomb in my face nearly gibbing my character, destroying science lobby, along with other bombs in medical and security, all created by a griefing non-antagonist, and decided that I should become a Janitor.
How long have you been playing SS13?:
My first recorded join for this server was September of 2019, but back then I didn’t really have much of an appreciation for this game. A better date for my starting point would be Late December 2021, I have not played any other server besides BeeStation, but got to know the experiences through snippets and YouTube videos.
How long have you been playing BeeStation?:
649h (589h/60h) 690h (626h/64h). Sneaky bump
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?:
6; This may or may not be underselling, but there is a lot of content within SS13 and one person cannot fully grasp all facets of this game, nor enjoy it in it’s entirety. Although I can confidently say I almost completely know Engineering and Science, the two arguably content-heavy departments. I have not done Chemistry and Botany.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an administrator? (this can include past games):
8; It feels like ever since I got a discord account I have been moderating something, If not a friend’s discord server, a GMod roleplay server, GMod sandbox server, Roblox community, etc. I am able to learn the skills required to use the administration tools most effectively given a diverse set of scenarios.
Have you ever been an admin or moderator on another server? This is not limited to SS13:
Not for SS13, but for other platforms such as Discord, GMod, and Roblox as stated above.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?:
None Isn’t this just a repeat of the very first question?
Patience to do prior research and attempt to get things right the first time.
Social Lynch Mobs, Procrastination.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?:
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?:
Out of all the applications and reports I have read, I believe the best trait for a staff member to have is time.
What makes a staff team good?:
Moreso applying to “staff”, that is the able to adapt to situations, particularly in SS13, a story-driven game, where when you join a round, you have no idea what will happen. A staff team should facilitate fun through the purging of unfun, with a variety of means to go about such.
What is a staff team’s purpose?:
Somewhere, sometime, a philosopher or poet must have concluded that, by mankind’s nature, there will always be “bad”. This is no exception in virtual video games designed to give the most amount of people the best experience. The obvious answer would be the staff team is entrusted to utilizes tools at their disposal to ensure fair and quality gameplay, whenever the mechanics fail to stop someone or something.
What kind of player are you?:
Hosting a majority of my hours in Engineering and Science, I go into rounds with a loose idea of what I want to do, and go about doing it, changing my gameplan as the round changes me. I’m that kind of guy, especially in engineering, to create the disposals departures transport system (I had to cryo), help the Captain build the singulo above AI sat (we never got it done), HE pipes all of central hall and departments and NOT connect it to fusion for EORG, attempt and fail at creating Factorio with belts and slimes in Xenobio, Fix EVERYONE’S problems as CE, engaging with other players as opportunities see fit.
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?:
I believe I can gain a greater appreciation for the work that is put in to keep this game functional, and maybe make some friends and experiences along the way.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
As always, dependent on the situation; Antagonist status check on the Clown, if not the Clown is not in a good position.
- Antagonizing Security during Red or Delta Alert will leave a Rule 8 Violation
- Stealing and Spacing the HoS’s personal gun is a Rule 9.8 violation if not antag, Rule 12.3 violation if they are and don’t have proper objective, as this may prevent other antags with the objective from taking it
Additional implied check on playtime, if a low-hour or recently created account non-antagonist, this may be a violation of Rule 8 in-general.
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?:
Assuming this is an active “dragging around a canister”, and non-antagonist, the player must be admin-prisoned to prevent further damage. A playtime check is of the order, there will be no less than a permanent ban for the following reasons:
- Atmospherics has been intentionally sabotaged by a player who knows what they are doing.
- The player continued sabotaging general station functions after, this was no accident.
- The player who owns the account is overall responsible for whatever happens to the account, even if a sibling or relative is particularly nefarious.
- The intention of grief is present, I do not know specific internal policy, so I do not know if a high enough playtime may warrant a lighter punishment. CentCom searches also help.
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?:
This is a quite common occurrence; A check on antagonist status and playtime is of the order. If the account is of low time in Chemistry and/or the server, there is possibility of honest mistake. A search on CentCom may uncover if this player has a particular history of grief, otherwise if the player remains apologetic then depending on specific admin policy I am not privy to, at most a note or a verbal remark.
