Ro5490's Admin Application the Third

Round 3 - Begin!

Your CKEY (Including any alts you have):
Ro5490

Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have):
Dapper#6969

How often are you online to help? (Timezone):
GMT - almost any time, I only work 2 hour shifts now.

What changes, if any, would you bring?:
I think I’m done with ss13 coding, and attempting to make changes really, As long as the community is happy, then I’m happy.

How old are you?:
25

Why do you want to be a moderator?:
Pretty much the same reasons as before, Seen a lot less admin activity on Sage since I hopped back on so I’m down to cover when people arent online. Also, I love answering prayers because they never seem to get answered <3

How long have you been playing SS13?:
On and off since 2008

How long have you been playing BeeStation?:
Roughly 537h as of this post

On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?:
I’d like to think I’ve improved, so maybe 9? but so much has changed so probably more like a 7 currently.

On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an administrator? (this can include past games):
I’d say roughly 8-9 ish, depending on how much has changed to admin commands and such. I also currently have given a total of 328 bans on beestation ^-^

Have you ever been an admin or moderator on another server? This is not limited to SS13:
Yes, see previous posts, also was host for Oasis13 for a while, that was pure cancer though ;-;

Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?:
I probably do but its been years so I cant remember any of them :confused:

Your strengths:
Years of experience dealing with SS13 and other Admin stuff, Observer only rounds are my regular, I work pretty well under pressure and learn rather quickly when introduced to something new and put my mind to it. Plus I’ve already spent a decent chunk of time as an admin for bee. I also seem to be online when there aren’t any moderators on, so thats a plus.

Your weaknesses:
I might be a bit too lax sometimes, and I tend to overthink things a bit much and occasionally bwoink people when they havent been doing anything wrong due to not having checked if they’re antag or not.

Also The Great Beestation Landmine Incident

Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?:
Having to repeat myself over and over, but other than that I’m pretty desensatized to most things.

What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?:
Patience and Understanding. Being able to have good communication skills is also a major plus as you’ll be in contact with people a lot while doing the job.

What makes a staff team good?:
Good communication, Teamwork, and Trust in eachother. If you cant work together while things are being really hard or stressful then its not a good team.

What is a staff team’s purpose?:
Making sure the community is appeased, the rules are followed, and the peace is kept.

What kind of player are you?:
Very laid back, I’ll usually end up as RD, HoP, or AI, just overseeing things and letting things play out.

How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?:
I probably wont be too different, just a couple more hours observing than I usually do.

The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
Oh boy these questions need a rework, They’ve been the same since 2020 at least…

This would be an IC issue if its a regular disabler or e-gun or similar, however if its the HoS’s unique gun it would be self-antag. In which case I would locate the item, check if its a current objective target, and if so, teleport it back to the HoS’s 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 an admin is cleaning up the after-effects, how do you conduct the ahelp with him?:
100% Grief, If the other admin has already taken the ticket I would help with clean-up, and send the person in question to admin-prison so they cant continue to be an issue.
If the other admin would like me to handle the ticket, I’d TP the griefer to prison, then ask why They’d sabotage atmos and cause a plasmaflood as a non-antag, any previous notes about similar things would be checked as well and ban-time would be adjusted based on their responses.

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?:
IC Issue, Hopefully engineering has their shit together for once and patches the hole though. I’d message the chemist and see how new they are, and direct them to the chemistry wiki page for extra guidance.

For those wondering, I left last time due to an extended absence from duties, I lost interest in ss13 and kinda just dropped off the radar. I might have mentioned it in admin-chat but that would have been almost a full year back.

As much as I’d love to +1 this based off my past experience with you as an admin. You did just come back to Bee after being gone for a year. I’d personally have liked for you to play a bit longer, some things have changed since you left.

+0, good luck.

You returned to Bee less than six days ago after a very long hiatus. This isn’t enough time to readjust to the state of the code- and player-base.

Literally who?

Also gonna pull the playtime argument. Think six days after a very, very long break is a little to early to apply again. Sorry.

But, apparently, others had good experiences with you. I’ll just drop ±0. Good luck.

I will have to give this application a -1 for now solely based on your recent playtime. You did start playing at the beginning of mai but i’d like to first have you go a month with consistent activity, which is not a thing right now, before giving you my +1. Will be happy to change this though once you proof that you are consistently interested in playing.
It is very important that you get to know the community that you then admin. We’ve changed alot, in regards to community, rules/policies wise but also as a staff team. I really don’t feel great giving you a +1 because of that at the moment.

(I hope i counted them together correctly)

Come back after some more adjustment, and I’d love to chip in on the app! It isnt very often that Tyranic chips in like that.

I’ve been on and off for roughly 2-3 weeks now, and I have to say fland is the worst map I’ve seen in a while and its taking me longer than usual to get used to it, but I’m very much enjoying watching how much the community has changed in the past two years. And its safe to say I know who likes to main what roles currently and which security personnel to avoid if I’m an antag now :joy:

But I’ve also noticed that when I’m active, theres usually 0 admins/moderators online, occasionally I’ll see Megaddd on, sometimes Not_a_Shark, noticed Qwerty a little too, but 90% of the time its either everyones either deadmin’d, stealthmin’d, or just not online as no ahelps get answered it seems.

Seems you have only been active for just this month, maby 1 more month to see if you truely wana stick.

Recent activity is sufficient for me to feel comfortable supporting this application +1.
