Post by Seth12786 » 25 May 2017, 23:20

Byond ID:Seth12786

Colonial Marines Character:Lou Millhouse

Age:21

Gender:Male

Timezone:UTC-06:00

On average, how many hours are you available per week to moderate?

From Monday to Thursday i am available from 12 pm to 12 am Fridays i am unable to moderate do to class and work being back to back. Saturday and Sunday from 7 am to 3 pm

Do you have any previous experience in being staff (not just SS13)?

I was a moderator/head mod for about a year and a half on the BESTRP server as well as Unbound travels when it made the transition from one server to the other.

Did you play any of the previous Colonial Marine servers?

I played on the original Colonial marines server irregularly,like a round or so every 2 weeks.

What are the 3 biggest servers you play on besides CM?

As of right now i do not play on any other servers.
Originally played on Apollo station 17(RIP)
And Best RP and its follow up Unbound Travels

Provide links to any previous Colonial Marines applications that you've made:

Are you currently a staff member elsewhere (not just SS13)? If so, where?

No other staff memberships.

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on Colonial Marines?

I have yet to be banned on the colonial marines server

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on ANY server? If so, which server, when, and what for?
No i have not.

Are you familiar with the chat program Slack (its use is required)?
I have not had the need to use Slack so far,but im confident i can get used to it.

Common Staff Situations:
Write a description of what you would do in each of the following situations. Do not write on the same line as the situation - use the space below it or make space as needed. Failure to do this proves your inability to follow instructions and your application will be automatically denied.

1. A player randomly shoots someone at round start and MPs have detained him.
Ask the player why the shot happened to make sure it was not the common issue of a miss click due to inexperience or Lag.
And proceed according to that information

2. The ship has a breach to space and a bunch of players have died or are dying as a result.
Ask the players involved and the admins if the caused of the breach was grief or was an ic incident and deal with it accordingly.
in case of grief rejuvenate the players and ban the one that caused it.


3. You see a player walking around the ship naked and clearly lost.
I PM the player and ask if they need help getting started and link them to the quick start guide that is on the wiki.
As well as a link to the correct map for them to be able to get around easy.

4. A player is being very rude to you in Admin helps and requesting to speak to an Admin+ staff member.
I apologize for not being able to assist him as he needs and try and pass him along to an admin,If the player is just insulting me for no reason than i shall apply the appropriate punishment


5. You notice a player with a name that doesn't fit our naming rules. The player is arguing that: They've used the name for several years, no one has told them to change it before, and that they didn't know it was a rule.
I let him know that it is indeed a rule and kindly ask him to change it,as well as apologizing on our behalf for not having brought it up sooner.
AS well as help him come up with a more appropriate name.

6. You see a Maintenance Tech running around in armor and carrying a rifle. The security level is green with no threat present.
Let them know that being in full armor and carrying a weapon is not allowed under no circumstance unless the Alert level is Red and there is a clear threat on board.


7. You see a Squad Medic performing surgery on the planet. He claims it was because there were no doctors in the FOB.
Tell them that is is considered power gaming for a squad medic to do so and that he should instead take the injured marine station side to get fixed.


8. The round is stagnating. There are 30 marines and 4 aliens. The marines won't leave the ship, and the aliens won't attack. What would you do, to "encourage" the sides to engage each other?

I personally tend to avoid getting involved directly with the course of the game..If i receive a good amount of admin helps regarding the issue i would call for a restart vote and let the player base make the decision of starting a new round or not.

9. The round ends, a MARINE starts shooting a hostile IRON BEAR and the IRON BEAR Adminhelps complaining he was killed after the round ended.

I remind the player that this is against rules as well as check notes for any previous aggression of the same nature,if he has a history of doing so i would apply appropriate punishments after consulting with the rest of the staff.

10. A marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start.

Remind that player that this is a roleplaying server and that he should act the part,if he has a history of these aggression then apply punishment according to the amount of past aggressions of the same type,Other than that let It be handled icly by the MP's

11. A marine has killed another marine. When you ask him why, he said it was because the other marine had punched him.

Remind him that use of lethal force has to have a proper role play reason and that simple punch does not call for it, I would add a note for other mods to see in case he does this repeatably and let it be handled IC by the MP after having told the player of the rules. in the case of a repeat offender than it would be necessary to apply some form of punishment

12. An issue arises that requires Admin+ abilities.

Call for an admin if there is non available through proper channels while at the same time using the MOD powers to the best of my ability for damage control. to prevent it from getting worse

13. There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.

Review the racist comments in question to make sure they fall within the "Wiggle Room" that marines have,if they are not overly offensive then i apologize to the player in question and let him know it is allowed as it is a mature setting roleplay,if however the comments are of a very offensive nature i reprimand the person saying the comments in question to either Tone it down,or stop all together.

14. A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.
Apply a note on the CKey in question and apply the appropriate ban for obvious grief.

15. You see a player playing a xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines and die.
Let it slide but Warn the player that this is frowned upon since another player could have taken that spot and played the round rather than suicide.
if he however ,is a repeat offender than apply some form of punishment

16. You see a xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat.

Warn them to keep the memeing off of the ic chat.

17. A xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different xeno player complains to you that it's metagaming/failRP to call it a "dropship".

Tell the player that is not information an Alien would have and that he should refrain from doing so again.
18. A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet.
Post a local ooc or ooc to the players to ignore that remark and then pm the command staff player in question that,that information is classified as Meta and telling other marines of it is considered MetaGameing.

19. A Marine kills another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself.

I would personally allow this myself as i see it as a good use of the lethal force rule so long as the situation itself was roleplayed and not just an instant kill

20. You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforcing a rule.

Kindly remind the Staff member what the rule applies to and try to solve the issue directly with him.

20a. You see a fellow staff member abusing his powers in-game.

Take screen shots or some form of other proof and let the Higher ups know as well as making a quick staff complaint post in.

21. You see a player talking in OOC chat about what he did with your mom last night.
Shrug it off,apply OOC mute,if it continues then apply appropriate punishment.

Any additional information you'd like to add?

There's a lot of spelling errors, your answers are sometimes vague, and sometimes correct but don't go into detail at all and you don't mention noting or banning any players in most of your answers. One answer you provided was to just restart the server for some reason, I'm not sure you understand the position your applying for or if you've even read any of the accepted staff apps. Gonna -1 this one.

Just going to say that im pretty sure that shooting an iron bear at round end doesnt count as eorg as they are antags, but even then, thats not the right punishment for eorg. Also the formatting for this is pretty bad, was hard to read on my phone because you bunched the questions with the answers in a rather inconsistent manner, ill keep this at a +0 until other respond

The use of notes is a given and as a moderator i try to avoid banning as a whole unless really required,and i've gone back and double checked to try and get the spelling errors out,I'm not a complete Pro when it comes to English but i've tried my best.

As for the restart part,I would not restart it at all,if not call for a server restart vote in case of a stagnated round. Since i could not think of a way to Coerce people into going down and hunting down 5 aliens in such a large map. and play a game of cat and mouse.

Also sorry about the formatting i am not well versed in the use of Forums per say do to my general dislike of them.

Restart votes aren't really used

And for formatting, it's not really a forum unique thing, you just press enter to space things out to make them easy to read.

Sometimes banning people is necessary, it's not really something that should be avoided when you need to.

Ok lets get down to business
  • For question 1, care to explain a few scenarios that you can think of for this one?
  • For question 2, well if you have determined that its was a breach that wasn't "natural" (caused by the shuttle crashing or pred bomb), you might want to seal it back up then deal with any parties involved especially now due to the limited supply of internals on the new ship
  • For question 4, for this you might want to mute ahelping abilities and add a note about his behavior or possibly a ban if there is any prior history of such a thing.
  • For question 5, you are on the right track but cases like these are generally going to be a tad more of a struggle than you might think however you are correct, they will have to change the name but they can try to appeal the name on the forums on the ban appeal section (it is quite rare but it has happened before). Also be sure to note down the experience.
  • For question 6, this is now an IC issue. If you want you can try to pawn it off to the MPs and let them handle it.
  • For question 7, what do you do with the player in question after talking to them?
  • For question 8, this is a different approach but I can see it as slightly acceptable since you aren't just restarting, you are making it a vote
  • For question 9, EoRG doesn't count antags. Also if it was an EoRG ban, it would be an instant 3 hour ban (which this isn't)
  • For question 14, you won't need to apply a note to a person you ban since it will ask for a reason. Also what would you do to all the people who died due to this griefer?
  • For question 15, make sure to apply a note to the person.
  • For question 17, this one is pretty wrong and its actually stated in the rules. We encourage the xenos call things in that strange primitive way but we don't require them to say such a thing.
  • For question 19, how would you confirm this?
  • For question 21, maybe a little overzealous on this one
  • In general, I see very little detail put into your answers, little to no investigations and no barely any notes
Honestly, you might of wanted to spend a tad more time looking up protocol and rules since I see some things that are quite off with this application. Also you might want to focus more on giving more indepth answers but that's my own personal preference. So for the time being I'll have to give you a -1, however you still might have a chance if you make some major changes (keep the original around please if you plan to edit your app) to this and answer a few more indepth scenarios (if provided)

All the info I would talk about has been described pretty well above whether it be the answers, structure of the app, the knowledge of the role your applying for, etc.

You seem like a good player, and you don't seem like you'd make a bad moderator, but you also don't seem like you've prepared for this as of yet. I'd like to see you apply again in the future when you have a better understanding of the rules and what is expected of staff through protocol and standard procedures. On your next application, I would suggest looking through previous accepted applications, even though the questions are different, for a better understanding of what we are and are not looking for.
