The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?:

I’d first check the logs of the round and check the hos’s behaviour and also if the clown is an antag. The reason for checking the logs if the clown is a non antag is that if the hos has done something to the clown, i may need to bwoink both of them. If the clown has specifically been targeting the hos a note may be in order or a ban if it seems likely to be grief or repeated behaviour

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?:

I’d first ask him why he did it and i’d also check his logs in the round to see if this was the only instance of this kind of behaviour and i’d also check his account hours to check if it’s possibly an evader or griefer. If there is strong evidence to suggest grief/evade i’d most likely permaban them or in the very unlikely case that there is somehow a reasonable excuse which there likely won’t at minimum a 3day ban.

However it seems pretty clear that it’s a griefer so most likely a permaban to summarise.

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’d most likely not get involved as it doesn’t seem it needs staff involvement unless its repeated behaviour in which i may warn him to not do it if it seems intentional or ask him to be more cautious.

You have alot of bans and also notes but most of them are rather old at this point. You do have a rather meme/shitpost/joke side to yourself but i think you changed a little in that regard aswell. My interactions with you ingame and on discord were enjoyable from what i remember though. I overall think you have improved to for example last year.

I’m going to post some questions either today or tomorrow. (Will edit this post instead of making a new one probably.)

hello! I’d love to see you as a moderator, good luck with the application!
In the meanwhile, I’d like to ask you a simple question to break the ice:

  • “is this server LRP or MRP or what?”

(these kind of ahelps are more common than you might think)
good luck! :muscle:

We strive for good roleplay consistent with a standard MRP level and try to stave off hallmarks of lrp such as internet slang being used in character “IDK, xd, lol etc.” We also discourage valid hunting and power gaming instead focusing on interactions. ( i assumed your question was asking for an explanation of our roleplay goals and not just a simple we are x or y answer).

Sure, that works.
I’d also link them to our rules page.
Alright, good luck with the questions! :muscle:

Questions time, these are rather hard questions and it’s fine if you get them wrong. Try to answer them to the best of your abilities!

  1. You notice a botanist growing deathnettles. They only seem to have made around three or four of them, attacked a monkey with them and then removed the plant from the tray. They are not an antagonist and after looking at their notes you can see that they have a watchlist entry for antag rolling and that they’ve been noted before for minor xenobiology powergaming. Anything wrong with what they did here? If yes how would you continue on in regards to bwoinks?

  2. You are ingame as an engineer and deadminned. You are just doing your things until you receive the alarm that the SM is rapidly loosing its integrity. After rushing to the chamber you see that the whole SM chamber has been filled up with walls and that multiple CO2 canisters are hooked up to a vent that is directly below the SM crystal. Seconds later the SM teslas and dusts you. After readminning you check that the guy who did that was a non antagonist and their account being very new. They do not have any notes or bans. What if anything do you do?

  3. You are a newly minted moderator just coming straight out of training and being alone on highpop sage. When you notice a prayer coming in: “Do your worst”. What if anything do you do?

  1. So first off, the fact that it was a low quantity of death nettles, I’d check the cargo bounty list as they might have been made to help with a bounty (the way I read it, not all of them are fully used to attack the monkey?, sorry if I read it wrong) such as organs/death nettles as them removing it from the tray seems to indicate that they’re not planning on growing vast quantities. However due to their notes, I would keep an eye on them to verify their purpose, if I feel it’s a bit unclear after watching them I may ask them to clarify why they grew them as this could just as well be powergaming as it could have an actual purpose.

  2. Well I would ask them why they did it but the evidence here strongly points to an evade/grief account. Most likely they are going to get a permaban and tell them to appeal on forums unless there was a third party involvement (i.e. someone tells him to do it when he asks coworkers for help if he is actually a new account).

  3. Forgive my potential ignorance, but moderators do not have perms for adminbus no?, if i am somehow confused in this matter i would most likely keep it to something very restrained/small scale like maybe a brain trauma such as imaginary friend or split personality as it being highpop i don’t want to give them something that may cause trouble when trying to moderate.

Good answer here. It’s fine to create a couple deathnettles if you use them for testing out stuff. Keeping an eye out on them because of their record is not a bad idea either.

This is more or less a good answer but you missed the trap. Basically, you got dusted by said tesla and are thus involved. Obvious grief situations can allow you act even if you’re involved though. You didn’t hint at this at all in your answer though.

This was a trick question aswell and you actually got it right. The right answer is to not do anything as moderators per admin conduct are not allowed to touch or answer prays in any capacity. This is not one of these “what would you do if you had the perms questions”. Good answer here ;).


I stand with what i said above. I think you have improved alot overall, especially in regards to your behaviour on discord and your last note is already rather old. I’m interested to see how you would do as a moderator, given the fact that you were a meme/shitposter a while back that did improve in my opinion.

  1. You perma and sticky a griefer / ban evader, why would or wouldn’t you try to be funny in the ban reason?

  2. As a staff member, typically your interactions have to be a bit more reserved / serious when chatting in #general, since you’re a member of staff and a reflection of the team. Do you think you’d be able to be serious when needed?

  3. Several lizard players consistently give each other genetic mutations and other mildly powerful items, ignoring other players trying to interact with them. These players RP with each other, but barely RP with other players. Is there a way to fix this? Is it a problem? What do you think?
