First admin application for reference:Rukofamicom Admin Application
Your CKEY (Including any alts you have): Rukofamicom
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have): Ruko#7940
How often are you online to play/admin? (Timezone): Available on discord/forums almost every day from CST 8:00PM thru 8:00AM. Available to actually Admin in the game three days a week for those same hours, and toward the tail end of those hours every day.
What changes, if any, would you bring?: Law and order to MRP during the late hours at the least. There’s been a little too much murderbone, self-antag and otherwise blatant disregard for the rules during my playing window and the requests for assistance seem to be going unanswered.
Even if I’m not available to help in-game, I can try to respond to forums quickly and get the information that’s needed to act on forum reports once I’m back at home.
How old are you?: 29
Why do you want to be an admin?: To help everyone that’s following the rules enjoy the game, and because I know I’m capable as an admin from past experience on other games
How long have you been playing SS13?: Since the beginning of October.
How long have you been playing BeeStation?: Also since the beginning of October - Bee is the first station I tried to play on. I’ve dabbled a bit in others, but Bee is where I’ve decided to stay.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?: I’d say 7 or 8. Much better than the last app, though I’m still pretty terrible at combat across the board, I’ve put effort into learning every job offered even if I haven’t experienced them all. I downloaded a clone of the beestation code and have been using it intermittently for testing ideas and learning.
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an admin?: Probably still about a 5 with regards to beestation, but 9-10 counting outside experience.
Have you ever been an admin on another server? This is not limited to SS13: Just going to plop this down here again: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198042838282/games/?tab=all&sort=playtime
Sorting games by hours and look at Terraria, Unturned, Ark, and Starbound - I spent most of those playtimes hosting servers for these games, however the Ark servers were private between friends so disputes were minimal. Unturned is the only experience I have with untempered PvP, since Ark was always with people who I knew would be good sports about losing.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?: None.
Your strengths: Still Impartiality and Sportsmanship - I’ve been here long enough now that my salty side has been seen, but it’s never been as a result of losing in the game.
Your weaknesses: I still like screwing with people, and I love cooperating with the clown to the fullest extent that I can get away with. As an admin, I will probably answer many prayers for the better or worse of the person praying. I outline this because I’m pretty confident in my ability not to go over the line with it, and I’ll never use admin powers for my own gain within a round at all.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?: Chain recalling when rounds have been going for hours and more than half of the connected players are dead.
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?: Patience, Understanding that mistakes happen
What makes a staff team good?: Cohesion and teamwork, understanding that admins are human as well and can approach problems in different ways as well as make mistakes.
What is a staff team’s purpose?: To ensure players that are obeying the rules are enforcing the game and to enforce those rules and remove players that aren’t following them.
What kind of player are you?: Now this one has changed - I am an engineer and the SM has been my true love since discovering it. I try to be as helpful to the people around me as I can be, but tend not to leave the department I’m assigned to until called to do something in another part of the station.
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: I’ll probably go stealth, randomize my character names/appearances when I’m not just observing the round as an aghost. The jobs I like performing the most are already low maintenance for the most part.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?: Since the gun can be an objective, it gets returned to the station. What happens between the Clown and HoS moving forward is IC unless it escalates further.
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?: Make a note on what the player did, for potential future interactions with admins to see. Disable the player from further action while allowing them to attempt to explain. If I’m convinced they’re a brand new player that had no idea what they were doing, I’ll direct them to a better job to learn the basic functions of the game and explain just how bad what they did was and probably apply a short job ban from jobs that can easily endanger the entire station. If on the other hand it’s apparent they’re the hardcore griefer this looks like, they’d probably get a permanent ban with the option to appeal for a shortening on the forums.
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?: Taking to heart the accidentally part of this question, this is an IC issue for sure. If ahelped, I could offer to explain what went wrong and direct them to the wiki page on chemistry.
