Harper - Jenner's synthetic application

Post by Jenner » 10 Feb 2018, 03:09

Marine Name (so we know who you are; if you play alien mostly, state that here):
Madison 'Spicey' Delaney

Name/Designation of the Synth Character you’re requesting to use (Follows common naming rules, and requires a first name with no last name):
Harper

Are you familiar with the Synthetic Programming and Guidelines (viewtopic.php?f=57&t=14417)?
yes

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 enjoy medical and engineering, as those are the roles I'm most experienced with, but I'm perfectly capable of assisting and manning the various consoles on the CIC, and assisting cargo and the POs are easy peasy! Harper's quirck is that she's exceptionally optimistic about her given objectives, almost to the point of obnoxiousness. I intend to RP of course, and I intend to make shipside Almayer a more fun and interesting place when I'm aboard!

How familiar are you with support roles? (ie; Medical, MT, Science, SO)
I have experience with all shipside jobs, with PO being my least played role. I'm fully capable of performing any task asked of me, and if I'm unfamiliar with something for whatever reason I have no qualms Ahelping a mentor or consulting the wiki.

Why should we whitelist you?
I wish to play a higher RP role, as well as experience the server from a different perspective, and I find the current synths really fun to play with and I'd like to be a part of that! My eventual hope is that by showing I'm good in a role like this I'll prove I'm capable of other roles such as predator and commander.

Have you been banned from CM in the last month for any reason (we will check, and lies may result in immediate denial)?
I think 2 or so weeks ago I was banned for 24 hours during an event for tossing grenades in briefing. That was a result of me misunderstanding what the event was and poor judgement, and I take full responsibility for my actions.

Are you currently banned from any other servers and if so, why?
I'm not currently banned from any server.

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?
yes

Activity is fine, as I have seen you around quite a bit.
To me, you haven't given much effort in my eyes to the character story, as it may take at least 10 minutes or so for most people to write that up.
I know that you can handle this role, as you are also active in replying to appeals, in chat, and other apps.
I havn't clearly seen you in many of the support/shipside roles, but I will probably be corrected on that.
The ban may be a problem for the mods/admins.

Overall, not the most effort, and have not seen you stand out in support roles, so I will have to go Neural leaning towards 1- on this one, I will happily correct my vote via further comments/replies.

It took me 2 hours to come up with that story... I'm not very creative, especially when I'm tired. I thought it was short and sweet, but to each their own.

I used to play MT alot during november and December (half the time as Valerie Bleigh), and when I'm feeling spicey I'll play doctor. I usually join MP if it's later in the round (sometimes as Ash 'Colonial' Vedos) and I ran SO/XO for a good week on and off (remember Madison Carson anyone?), and a couple times since then. For the most part this last couple of weeks I've been playing combat roles at odd hours of the night, so I've been playing alot of lowpop, dunno which time zone you're in but it's usually between 8pm to 3am PST depending on how I'm feeling.

The only medical related thing I get hung up on is the dyalisis machine, because I'm not 100% on how to use it right and have only needed to use it 2 or 3 times. Every other role I personally believe I'm competent at (like as SO I know OB coords, MT I can set up the smes batteries, ect) but you'll have to take my word on that.

I've seen Madison as a MT, XO, and multiple medical roles, so I know they can handle that. As lukey stated, the ban MIGHT be a problem, but I don't believe it will as it was a small ban for miscommunication.

I've known them for a while on CM, and I know they're active and can hold the synthetic status. But, you have to know it isn't all meming around constantly.

With all that said, +1. Good luck.

Hmm, after consideration on your reply, and also considering your competence... I think you could handle it.

1+ from me.

I mostly see you as MT, sometimes as a MP and you can do your job and be pretty much enjoyable, no real issues with you at all except one time you were memeing around as a MP which I didn’t exactly enjoy as I usually take MP to be one of the more serious roles.

Overall +1, you can handle being a synth, just keep the memes back a little bit

Playing with you on the server is fun, and your character is one that I recognize and can enjoy a round with. Your quirk is generic, however it is something that can easily be roleplayed and add some enjoyment to the round. I wish that your story featured more of your quirk in an external way, most of it seems to be focused on Harper's internal thoughts rather than her RP interactions with the crew which is what I personally like to see in applications.

Your note history is more lengthy than most who are on the whitelist, however I'm not that concerned given that it's nothing malicious and I've never had any personally negative interactions with you IC. My main concern is that synths have to strictly abide by marine law, so while synths are encouraged to spice up the round and add some enjoyment for as many players as possible, they are bound to strict guidelines. While I think you will effectively try and make rounds more fun for the marines you play alongside, I just want to make sure that you know where to draw the line memeing as a synthetic.

Of course! I know what's acceptable and I understand completely just how serious I'd have to take marine law with this role. Where an MP could theoretically bend the rules in his mind, a synthetic is programmed to follow them to a T. (Physically impossible to disobey programming)
