Yes. Having your name on the whitelist is a privilege, and whitelisted players are expected to follow rules and guidelines to a tee, with little forgiveness for mistakes compared to the average player.
Do you understand how the Battlefield Execution functions?
Yes. Battlefield executions are to not be dealt out lightly. Battlefield executions should only be warranted if the individual is causing great harm to the mission and needs to be immediately removed. In any other normal situation where the individual isn't causing great immediate harm, it is up to the military police to handle an execution if necessary.
Do you understand you are not above Marine law, or allowed to enforce it yourself?
Yes. I may report crimes, but I am certainly not allowed to enforce the law.
What do you think is the job of a Commander?
The commander is the man who brings together the whole marine corps. He is responsible for considering the thoughts and responsibilities for every single individual under his control.
A commander should strive to have good and constant communication with his subordinates, and to make sure his men are communicating and coordinating with each other as well.
A good commander delegates instead of micro managing. He is responsible to make sure that orders are divided in a sensible way, and to account for each of his members.
A commander needs to pay utmost attention to communications. A bad commander makes orders without fully understanding the situation of the battlefield. It is up to him to get the staff officers giving accurate information so he doesn't send marines into a stupid maneuver.
When marines see a commander, they should all be having sighs of relief because they can trust the CO to make the mission run smoothly, and to get out there and pull strings to make it work if it isn't.
If a member of your staff is disobeying orders, how would you handle it?
I would give them the benefit of the doubt first. Perhaps the chat box was scrolling by too fast for them to read the order, or perhaps they were AFK for a quick second. I would give them an ample warning, and to make sure that they understood and received the order before jumping to the conclusion of them disobeying. If they indeed continued to disobey orders, I would have them brigged for insubordination and give them a clear expectation of what I expected them to do, and what they did instead that made me call for an arrest on them.
Why should you be whitelisted?
I have extensive knowledge and many hours clocked in to all marine roles and xeno roles. I have played countless hours as SL, SO, and in the recent months, XO. I have played, tried and learned from all of my many experiences in leadership roles. I have learned what works and what doesn't from experience, and from observing COs. When I make a mistake, I don't simply shrug it off. I stop and ask myself what I could have done to prevent it, and what I can do better next time.
I love playing leadership roles. I played SL until I mastered it, did the same thing with SO, and now I am in the process of it with XO. When I make a mistake, I ask my subordinates what I could have done better, and look to see what other commanders do when presented with the same situation.
I also love the roleplaying aspect of being a leader. I am sure there is many a marine that can testify to the strict but based attitude of Tim Bob. I would love to see how far I could go with roleplaying as a CO and I imagine it would be great fun for all.
