I will not be on all these times, due to personal issues or schoolwork. Have you ever been banned on any other servers? I have never been banned on a server other than small servers as a joke between friends. I've learned that it's very annoying to staff when people do that now. What previous experience do you have in server moderation and staffing? I was staff for 4 months on a server called Jumpcraft. Some things I learned are how to deal with multiple questions at once, how to punish and use commands as a staff correctly, and how to communicate properly with other staff members and players. "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 has happened to me once or twice before yes, but I quickly realized it, got off and finished my homework. Staying active on the server while being staff is important yes, but school is number one. If any of my grades were to drop, I would quickly take a break from staffing, get them back up, and then return back. Are you active on the OPBlocks TeamSpeak or Discord, and do you have a working microphone? I'm active on the Discord I have a working microphone Are you able to record in viewable quality? I currently use BandiCam for my recording software. Spoiler: Recording Sample Why do you want to be a staff member on OPBlocks? I want to be staff because with a new version almost here, there will be an influx of new players. I would love to help those members feel welcomed into OPBlocks, giving them a good impression of the server. I will never turn down a request for help, it's part of my responsibility as a staff member. However, despite all this, I know that I will most likely need guidance from fellow, more experienced staff members on the team. Because of this, I would want to improve myself and ask them for help when needed. Another reason I would like to become staff is for the experience. While we are playing a game, when you're staff you need to take stuff seriously. Getting this experience early will help in the long run with other jobs. How would you respond to your application being denied, or a demotion as a staff member? Denied: If I were denied, I would look back and read the comments. I would take the advice that they gave me and apply it into my next application, and use it once the 30 days is up to reapply. Demoted:If I were demoted, I would ask staff members why I got demoted, and then I would take what they said and try my very best to improve on what they told me to improve on If you are called a useless helper/bullied by players, how do you react to this? If I were to be called a useless helper, I would ask them why they think I'm a useless helper, and what I could do to improve how I am. If it turns into staff disrespect I will punish them with the correct punishment. Spoiler: Punishment List https://opblocks.com/threads/opblocks-global-rules.3330/ How many OPBlocks staff applications have you made prior to this one? 1 What is the date of the last application you’ve made? April 25th, 2018 From reading the comments on my last staff application, I learned that this is not only just a hobby, but it’s also like a job. Putting in a small amount of effort won’t get me accepted, so I needed to change that. I learned that I needed a lot more detail, and that I needed to become more known on forums. I’ve reread the staff application multiple times and read many accepted applications and taken all of the comments into consideration onto this staff application. Is there anything else we should know? I've played on this server on and off for quite a while, starting back in v1. Since the end of v4 I've been playing very frequently and I've grown attached to this server. Like every other person on this server I have made some mistakes but I've learned from them. I will take those failures I've made in the past and try my best to change them into rights. Pros: Some experience as staff on other servers Active on server Have played the server on and off since early 2017 Won't be bias towards friends Cons: Might miss questions sometimes Can have a short temper at times, not often though Might get kicked randomly at times* * My current computer is on the older side, so minecraft will randomly crash sometimes. I am getting a new computer very soon, so this will not be a problem for long. Thank you for reading my staff application. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask in the comments. I would love to hear feedback about what everyone thought after reading my application.
