No longer a 12 page essay!
I will primarily (aka pretty much exclusively) admin for LRP.
Your CKEY (Including any alts you have): The Maggot Guy
Your Discord Name (Including any alts you have): The Maggot Guy#3950
How often are you online to play/admin? (Timezone): Central Time from around noon to around midnight
What changes, if any, would you bring?: An Admin on LRP
How old are you?: 19
Why do you want to be an admin?: I want there to be at least one admin on LRP 24/7 including late at night and during lowpop hours. Simply just having an admin on will cut down on shittery and rule-breaking, which is the goal.
How long have you been playing SS13?: Since January (2020)
How long have you been playing BeeStation?: Also since January
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you in SS13?: 7. The only things I don’t know are a few specific antag things (like heretic or cult), cargo, genetics (need to learn it, it seems based), and botany (though I’m willing to learn these on my own time).
On a scale of 1-10, how skilled are you as an admin?: Probably a 4 or 5. I’ve messed around in a private server a bit so I understand the menus and I understand the beestation rules but I’ve not tried to ban anyone (because again, private server). I do manage a very very small subreddit and have dealt with a very very small brigade though. Not accounting for the admin tools probably a 6 at least, but I don’t have much experience, again due to the small size of the sub, but I do adapt well, such as with the aforementioned brigade of the one guy who posts there.
Have you ever been an admin on another server? This is not limited to SS13: No, but I manage a few extremely small and niche subreddits. The largest is r/TF2morrow with just over 250 subs. The only other decent example is r/Fallout76Photography, since it’s more serious than r/TF2morrow, but it’s also dead as hell.
Do you have any alternate accounts on SS13? If so, could you provide their CKEY?: No.
(I love how the question is phrased such that if you just say no it’s like you’re saying “No I won’t tell you about my alts” and not just “no I don’t have any”.)
Your strengths: I don’t get angry easily, and I have a lot of time. I also stick to my morals.
Your weaknesses: I am a liitle bit naive and sometimes take jokes to far, but there’s no way in hell I’m gonna pull a sumter (no offense) and lose admin for everyone on LRP, a responsibility like that is too important. I am also sometimes blind when the problem or conflict involves me, but the admin conduct says no to dealing with those problems so I should be good.
Is there anything that gets you really mad, real fast?: Advocating for pedophillia or genuinely advocating for abortion in a non life-for-life situation. The former makes me angry and the later makes me upset (literally I become nauseous).
What do you think is the most important trait for a staff member to have?: Humility and an ability to admit one’s own wrongdoing. (In addition to not being a fucking tool lol)
What makes a staff team good?: People with a clear vision that aligns with that of what will actually be good for the community. And in LRP’s case, actually having people to begin with as well.
What is a staff team’s purpose?: To keep the community/game true to its purpose, which in this case, is helping ensure a specific brand of fun.
What kind of player are you?: A decent one, who likes to help for the greater good (E.G. I will tide into kitchen when nobody is there and fix up something tasty and filling), though I will admit I enjoy making spaceman horizontal a bit too much, haha
How do you think you will change once you become a staff member?: I’ll probably be more professional and less jokey kind of like imhotep.
Now for the fun part, aka the only part 90% of you will read: The Questioning.
The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:
Not a damn thing. I may bwoink the clown saying “based, you actually got ahelped for that” or help direct the HoS to check the outside of the station if he seems new/directionless, but there absolutely needs to be an ic punishment for security messing up like that (as long as clown didn’t actually hurt the HoS as non-antag) and I think that the non-harmful loss of a single, specific weapon is a good consequence for being that clumsy. If the clown deep fries the entire armory yeah I’d warn (or ban with prior behavior) because that hugely affects the round, but spacing a single item is nothing. (I might also centcom that “THE CLOWN DID WHAT? Send the cargo shuttle to centcom for some replacement crates”). If that was your “steal” goal and you lost because of it, tough cookies. These things happen. Long as clown wasn’t doing it with the express purpose of cucking the antags I see no problem here.
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?:
Another admin? On LRP? You’ve gotta be shitting me…
Ok but for real, I’d yeet him to admin jail and bwoink him with “Got anything to say about this?”, and if he doesn’t respond or disconects for 5 minutes he gets the bean with the customary “Appeal on forums if you feel this was a mistake”. There are a very select few reasons to do this and he better have a damn good one.
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?:
I might examine the situation to see if it was blown with malicious intent, but probably nothing, because there are a million and one ways for things to wrong in SS13 and this is just one of them. I’d investigate (long as there wasn’t anything more pressing) if someone ahelped, and if the dead guy himself ahelps, I’d check his hours and get him on his feet with a bit of teaching and a link to the Bee wiki for chem, if he’s new. Otherwise this is just a thing that happens sometimes.
Edit: I’m a dumbass. Here are my hours lol
