Timezone My timezone is CST (Central Standard Time/Central Time Zone) UTC-06:00. I currently live in the United States of America. Age I am currently fourteen years old. Donor Rank I currently have the CandyKing Donator rank. Application What realm do you play on? As of right now, there is only one realm, should other realms ever be added I will be sure to make playing on them a priority as well. What times are you most often online? I have create two schedules below, one for my school year and one during holidays. I will be sure to update the schedules accordingly if needed. Spoiler: School Year times - Weekdays 6:00PM to 12:00AM Fridays 3:45PM to 12:00AM Weekends 7:30AM to 1:00AM Spoiler: Holiday times - Weekdays 9:00AM to 1:00AM Weekends 7:30AM to 1:00AM Note: These times are subject to change at any given time and apply to the server, forums, and Discord. I may have to leave the server suddenly due to family. Have you ever been banned on any other servers? Yes, I have been banned before on other servers. However I would like to say that those experiences helped me have a deeper regard for the rules on Minecraft servers and a greater understanding for why they should be upheld. I think that, any previous bans will help me to look at punishments from a better place and allow me to punish fairly. Note: Any bans I have received in the past took place over 1 year ago. What previous experience do you have in server moderation and staffing? OPBlocks I have been apart of the OPBlocks staff team three times, each time taught me something new in regards to staffing. These things include - Dealing with player reports Moderating the chat Dealing with punishments (e.g kicks, mutes, bans) Locking/Moving Threads Answering questions on the forums Doing small work such as deleting duplicate threads, denying requested applications (and troll), etc I was a Helper once and Moderator two times. I think that, if I am given another chance to join the staff team on OPBlocks that I will make it farther and make an even greater impact than before. SCENARIO: "You come home from school and have ton of homework to do, you think to yourself I'll just take a 5 minute break before I start and get on OPBlocks. The next thing you know 2 hours have passed and you've been on the server all that time." Does this scenario sound familiar to you? - How do you respond to this? This scenario does not sound familiar to me as I prioritize school at a higher level than OPBlocks because I value my education. If it did happen to me I would immediately leave the server and get straight to work on my homework because I will never let myself fail a class because of video games. Are you active on the OPBlocks Teamspeak, and do you have a working microphone? Yes, I do have a working microphone. I, however am not active on the OPBlocks Teamspeak because it is not commonly used anymore and Discord is a much more popular platform among players. Are you able to record in viewable quality? Yes, I am able to record in viewable quality. I currently use GeForce Experience to record and have a hotkey set on my keyboard so that I can record at a moments notice. Below is a sample of my recording quality. Spoiler: Recording Sample - Why do you want to be a staff member on OPBlocks? I would like to be a staff member on OPBlocks because it is truly my favorite server. Now, I know that many other people have said this, and I am sure they meant it, but I mean it on a different level. Even when I take an 8 month break from Minecraft, then come back I gravitate towards OPBlocks. When I play on the server, I get a sense of satisfaction and whenever I am a staff member that feeling increases tenfold. Below I will also list a few things that I feel differentiate me from other players: Professionalism I always try to act professional when I am on the forums, server, and discord but especially the forums. I feel that on the forums everything you say is saved forever so you should always maintain a professional aura. I will admit that sometimes I am immature in discord or in-game but I never bring myself to break any rules. I always try to maintain these standards because if staff do not then who's to stay that players should not be able to break rules if the staff do. Age Although considerably young, I believe that I am fit to be a staff member. I have proved this in the past through my previous time staffing on OPBlocks. Even many of my friends attest to this and do not believe me when I say that I am 14. When I applied for staff on another server I had a chance to talk to the owner, he told me that he originally thought I was more like 16, so that just goes to show what I am saying. Experience And finally, my experience/time on OPBlocks. I have been playing OPBlocks since version 1 and now version 6. I have not always stayed active but now I intend to stay. So, what else does my experience do for me? Well it helps me to know the community very well and already know the ins and outs of being a staff member. Things like punishment standards, commands, basic behavior, and protocol on certain things. How would you respond to your application being denied, or a demotion as a staff member? Denied If my application was denied, I look at my denial message and see if the staff who denied me provided a reason for denying me application. If they did, I would first try to improve on the reasons which they stated. I would also not let my application being denied be the reason for me to stop playing OPBlocks. Instead I would continue to play and if I felt that I still wanted to be staff after the one month wait was up then I would apply again. Demoted If I was demoted from my staff position the first thing I would do is apologize to the community. In the past, I have been demoted and in that I learned that being toxic and angry at the people who demoted you will get you nowhere. Instead trying to improve myself and become a more mature individual would become my main goal. If you are called a useless helper/bullied by players, how do you react to this? I would try to resolve the situation, because the purpose of a staff member is to help players, even if they are rude to you. Then, if I was able to make the situation better for the player I would return to my duties. However, if the player is just outright rude and breaks rules while disrespecting me, I would punish them appropriately in severity concerning the "Staff Disrespect" rule. How many OPBlocks staff applications have you made prior to this one? I have made three OPBlocks staff applications prior to this one. Two of them were accepted while I requested the third to be denied due to a lack of motivation. What is the date of the last application you’ve made? My last staff application was posted on April 27, 2017. Is there anything else we should know? If you felt that any of my application was poorly written, feel free to leave constructive criticism as I am always looking to improve my writing. I would also like to address something which is most likely a big concern for many players. If you do not think that I have been very active recently, that is true and you are right to say that. However recently, since I returned I have seen direction the server is heading. It has really encouraged me to once again help out in a staff role, if I am given the chance. If you made it to the end, Thank you for reading my staff application!
