Your CKEY (Including any alts you have):
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have):
How often are you online to help? (Timezone):
Eastern Standard Time. As with the last app, I am most available between the hours of 4pm-2am
What changes, if any, would you bring?:
I really actually enjoy monotonous clerical work like player reports, those were pretty fun. I’m also interested in looking at moderators tools and seeing if I can streamline or improve them for other staff if possible. The experience in code and in-game can be vastly different, and I think it will give good perspective.
How old are you?:
Why do you want to be a moderator?:
I was recommended to by a friend, maybe several.
I was told there was a staff shortage and was looking to offer a hand.
Seeing as I now can code a damn, as opposed to that poor bastard, it still hasn’t changed my view.
I’ve sunk a lot of hours into playing or writing code, I’d like to give back in other ways.
How long have you been playing SS13?:
7/30/2020 I played fulp the first time, playing there for around 2-3 months or so before migrating to bee. I have about 100 hours on Fulp, though I havent exactly checked in 2 years.
How long have you been playing BeeStation?:
I have 1449 hours as of today, September 28th.
I first joined exactly 3 years ago, on September 29th 2020.
88.6% of my combined hours are spent living
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?:
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an administrator? (this can include past games):
Have you ever been an admin or moderator on another server? This is not limited to SS13:
I have experience moderating barotrauma and some minecraft servers, though this experience ranges from 5 years to 10 years ago.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?:
I do not
I don’t really have a sleep schedule. I’m liable to be awake when all the Euros and Americans have gone to sleep. This is unlikely to change any time soon.
I’m also very familiar with community. I would go as far to say nearly all staff know me in some way
I probably don’t look like it, but I definitely seek affirmation. Confrontation can sometimes really upset me, especially if it’s from people I trust. I’m leagues better than I used to be in that regard, but I still consider it a personal flaw.
Also, I tend to shitpost quite a bit and suck at reading the room. I believe I’m improving in this, however.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?:
People I don’t know I can blow off pretty easy when I can tell they are trying to get a rise out of me, but people I have a personal connection with I am much less capable of handling my emotions.
Transphobia and Racism, I really don’t like either.
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?:
I plasmaflooded at 2 hours on fulp because I didnt know how to wrench down a canister. That admin could have easily thought I was a griefer, and I would not have had a history playing this game. Patience will always be an important thing to have, in my experience.
What makes a staff team good?:
Same as the first app. Cohesion.
Everyone in the staff needs to follow hierarchy as a river of information, not like some personal fiefdom. Not listening is a good way to breed resentment and tear a team apart.
I think if a team has, at the minimum, that, it will remain healthy and be able to respond to changes as they come along. Not have giant schisms like some F13 servers.
What is a staff team’s purpose?:
Two focuses mostly, Moderation to temper gameplay and limit unsafe behavior, and being a DM who will make the game more enjoyable for players.
What kind of player are you?:
I like pushing the limits of the code, whether in unique designs or gimmicks using underutilized mechanics.
I’ve never been particularly ‘good’ at RP, so my main focus for the past year has been bringing code from other codebases I’ve heard Bee players request.
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?:
I would likely restrict myself entirely from headroles and just play Engineer. Im more free to play, but also respond if something comes up that needs admin intervention.
For my mannerisms, I think I’ve been able to behave a lot more and not be an ass, so I will continue that. More professionalism going forward.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
- Check antag datum. If appropriate antag, ignore.
- Bwoink, inform him that unique items are not to be sent through the void.
- Check history for this behavior. Escalate punishment accordingly. At the minimum a note.
- Depending on the circumstances, I would probably let him eat the IC consequences of it too, whatever they may be.
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?:
Presumed griefer. Immediately Ajail.
Check his say logs and actions on pipe devices.
His punishment is highly dependent if he just messed up the mixer, or if he actually rerouted Distro with a RPD.
A perma “explain on forums” is definitely in the question, but its dependent on his hours and what he says.
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?:
Cursory note and hours check. Let him know how he fucked up, if Dchat hasn’t started doing so already. Most chemists already know why they messed up.
