Joseph Frost Synth App

Post by Forst » 17 Dec 2017, 21:52

Byond ID:
Joseph Frost

Marine Name (so we know who you are; if you play alien mostly, state that here):
Sal 'Lamander' Mason, my engineer. Eli Hargrove, my chef. Ancient Drone.
Name/Designation of the Synth Character you’re requesting to use (Follows common naming rules, and requires a first name with no last name):
Joseph

Are you familiar with the Synthetic Programming and Guidelines (<URL url="viewtopic.php?f=57&t=14417")
I am unable to use weapons and I must cause an uncanny valley situation as part of my existence. Got it.

Synthetic Character Story (An ADEQUATE description and story of your Synthetics actions and involvement in a previous mission onboard the Almayer):
► Show Spoiler
How do you intend to play your Synth (as in, describe HOW you will act/play your Synth and what support roles you’ll mainly focus on, what is your synthetics quirk)?
I would probably assist as a sort of nurse or cargo drone, moving supplies back and forth and doing jobs marines usually tend to shirk. Joseph's quirk would probably be some sense of vanity, as in always trying to collect reflective objects to see his own reflection.

How familiar are you with support roles? (ie; Medical, MT, Science, SO)
I am still stuck in the old ways of medical(TG), but I have played many of the other roles quite often.

Why should we whitelist you?
I honestly do not see many synthetic characters and I would love to give it a try. Plz.

Have you been banned from CM in the last month for any reason (we will check, and lies may result in immediate denial)?
I don't think I have ever been banned from CM, much less in the last month.

Are you currently banned from any other servers and if so, why?
Not to my knowledge.

Do you understand that any player - donor or otherwise - can have their whitelist status revoked should they break our rules or the Synthetic Programming Guideline?
Ban me if I'm shit.

The story seems decent but other answers seem half-asses, maybe you could add something? id give +1 for whatever its worth if you put more effort there
Janina 'Bullseye' Jardine- Never misses, but what she DOES hit is another thing

This place would be so much better if marines were replaced with cyborgs, atleast those would follow orders. assuming there was a rule forcing them to do so...

I kept timing out trying to get everything together so it ended up being pretty dry and sarcastic. I'm aware of this, and it's probably gonna be what gets my app denied.

The story needs more synth dialogue, it just reads as the synth saying everything in their head, not really talking or showing off their vanity. meh for now

You seem like a decent person as a human player and your answers are okay but I just can't help but feel like the story feels a bit off for a synth. The story is okay-ish but I just can't help thinking that this feels more like a really OP human more than a synth. I also feel like there just wasn't enough dialogue between the crew and the synth as well so if you could improve on the story a bit, you definitely can get a +1 from me but for now I am going to keep a neutral stance on this.

The vanity quirk seems a little odd, but other than that it is an adequate application. If any criticism, I say you give your synth more actions or verbal actions that allow you to delve into it's quirk or personality (or lack of) more. I give it a +1, because I trust you to RP the synth better than the application is.

I honestly have never seen you in-game before, except I feel like I have heard of the first name and nickname... plus, like the first comment, the whitelist should be the area with the 2nd or 3rd most writing, intead of, "No synths, I want to, pls." I am gonna have to give a 1- to neutral for now. put some more effort, a little less sarcasm, play some leader roles, and more dialogue, and then you can get my full 1+.

Hint - post the fixes here and I will reconsider.
