Cpkeyes Commander Whitelist APP

Player name you use the most: Tabatha 'Sunshine' Cody

Make a list of links to all of your applications and (job)ban appeals, including whitelist and staff apps, within the last year. Also, provide "Ban reason; Verdict" beside each (job)ban link:
  • | None, I am a good boy.
  • Exact formatting is helpful but not required.
Do you understand that any player - even donors or staff members - can have their whitelist status revoked should they break our Server Rules or Roleplay Guidelines? Yes.

Why should you be whitelisted? I've tried pretty much every role but any of the medical roles, engineering and CMP and people have said that I am fairly competent and good at RPing. Now for all I know they could be lying and I am actually literally Hitler. For the last few times I have been XO, there has been no commander, so I was basically acting. In both of those the marines either-Nearly won or won. I think I have shown that I can both be a decent commander and provide everyone with RP opportunities. For example, I always send a xeno up to the ship so the researchers can look at it, and even allowed them to test on marines once. I always make sure the MP's are escorting survivors or the CL and I try to be a 'reasonable' dick to the CL. I also always talk in the squad chats, through I tend to trust my SO's.Perhaps a bit too much.

Sample briefing because I know how much you guys love that.
Rinse and shine fucksticks of the USS Almayer and welcome to another glorious day in the United-Fucking-Systems Marine Corp. Today, High Command has seen fit to send us to check out some fucking WY colony that's gone dark and have honored me with the presence of a shiteating lackey who would probably fuck his own mother if WY told him to *points to the CL*. Now, I understand we got some new boots on this ship, so a word of advise you green ass motherfuckers. Listen to to your SL's and SO's. As far as you are concerned, they are my seven disciples, blessing you with my holy message. Now to squad deployments. Bravo, I'm sorry but you got the honor of being on FOB duty this OP. But do not despair, for I am certain you shall build a fortress on a scale never before scene. Stonewall Jackson himself will cry from the heavens as he watches wave after wave of UPP conscripts die trying to take your FOB. Alpha, I hope your IQ is above 15, because your gonna get the fucking power on and if needed, assist Bravo in building the FOB. Charlie and Delta, now you boys are lucky, for today you shall be my spear that I will thrust into the guts of the enemy! I want you to scout the entire fucking colony, scrub it cleaner then a Mormon women before her wedding night and then secure the area around Hydro. Bring any fucking civvies aboard DS 1.

You came off as a really stressed and angry XO, was that your goal RP wise for the character? It came off like you were about to pop a neck vein any moment.

I have only seen you once earlier today. Tell me more about your characters personality and traits? How long have you played XO for? (when you manage to get it, as XO is hard to get)

In command positions, Tabatha tends to be more....stressed and irritable and short with people. Mind you the last session I was without a commander and had only be one SO, so I RPed Tabatha sending messages to High command about how she felt the ship wasn't ready and that she was never serving on another ship built by WY again, along with talking on multiple channels at once.

Two rounds, all as acting CO since the CO was either SSD or missing.Last session was short on staff too.

It should be United Americas, if I'm not mistaken.

Okay so you come on the discord all the time to ask really basic questions and you've only really been playing for like a month or two.

Which is pretty much exactly how I looked when I applied for CO. I'm confident you're not a troll and that you can RP well, so hop on. +1

Briefing is fine, somewhat unique, but I don't think I have EVER seen you as XO or any other command staff really.

As a Commanding Officer I'd discourage the use of vulgar language. You come off as an angry drill instructor dealing with clueless private.

As far as winning/losing?... Not necessarily important to the CO position. I'm going to stay neutral now, but I'd love to see you as an XO this weekend!

Incorrect lore in the briefing concerns me.

Literally, the whitelist app exists as a way to filter baldies and noobs.

I made a mistake, I thought the United Systems was formed at this point, but I think that was the 23rd century.

I NEVER saw you ICly, or OOCly that i could possibly remember.

I'm giving you three situations, i will give my vote based on it

1: (Late Round) You just woke up from cryo, Aliens have managed to wipe out most of the marines, planetside is lost and the Alamo is being Hijacked by someone, or something (Aliens). What would you do?

2: (Mid-round) CL just came in CIC shouting over you, threatining to fax W-Y for the damages your continuous CAS and OBs have caused.What would you do?

3: (Late Round) A Unauthorized distress beacon was launched, and suddenly, a UPP squad came in CIC and starts grenading the hell out of it. What would you do?

Not sure on this one. My view of a good commander is one that is professional to a fault, at least until shit hits the fan, but they should always be cool-headed. However, my view of a good commander does not necessarily mean that your character is unwelcome to the whitelist or even a bad one, so I'm going to remain neutral.
Also, I've rarely ever seen you as a marine and I'm certain I can't remember a time where you were command staff. Perhaps we've just got different timezones, but who knows.

Tl;dr: I'm not convinced one way or another. One side tells me that brusque commanders have a place to keep the whitelist unique, the other tells me that I just don't find them a good representation of a person who "symbolizes freedom from chaos or stagnation". I am totally willing to change my vote regardless of your character if I see you playing more and expressing competence. P.S: Read up a bit on lore. I'm willing to accept the United Systems bit as a simple mistake, but (I imagine) it'd be best for your app if it didn't happen again.

1: Rally the renaming marines and set up defenses around key points, particularly the CIC. Inform High Command that reinforcements are need and send a distress beacon. Remove any marines from brig, give them a weapon and armor and tell that for now, they are free. Stay in the CIC to launch pods as soon as possible while making a mad dash to the SSD room.

2-Remind them that without us, they will not be getting the colony back at all and that any damages will be covered by the USCM.

3-Find whoever launched that distress beacon, brig them and if necessary, brig them. Lockdown CIC and order squads to hit the UPP in the rear. Inform high command. Call them godless communist over the radio and make plenty of Lenin and Stalin jokes.

I also have a habit of just telling infected marines to be killed. Tabatha kinda thinks logically (at least, logically to her) and doesn't care about ethics if it will get everyone on the ship killed.

I liked most of this till you talked about telling infected marines to be killed.

I mean, sure, in a RO perspective, killing an infected soldier that otherwise would not be able to be saved is noble. However, this is a game, and trying to execute a marine that is undergoing surgery to remove an embeyo is just plain dickish.

Well, you seem to know pretty much enough to not get everyone killed
BladeBr just has the same point of vision of me about the ''kill yourself if you are infected'' thing, but i think you otherwise has enough knowledge of what the Commander Role requires.

If they are undergoing surgery and can possibly savedlet them live,they have a chance. If the aliens are banging on the walls and you can't evac them. Kill them. It's meant to basically sparks conflict and I expect most marines to tell me to duck off.


But that is what I meant.

She tends to be an understanding person, doesn't try to cause trouble if she doesn't need too. She tends to operate under a warning system, but it's clear the marine is a idiot she has them arrested. Tends to let the MP's and squads do there thing without too much inference. She trusts that her officers can do their job properly.

She also is okay with staying on the ship by herself to activate the SSD while everyone else escapes.
