Stobarico - Synthetic Whitelist Application

Post by stobarico » 10 Feb 2018, 23:51

Byond ID:
Stobarico

Marine Name (so we know who you are; if you play alien mostly, state that here):
Sergio Stone

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

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)?
My synthetic will mainly focus on Research, Command Assistance (As in Piloting, assisting Overwatch, etc) and Engineering, it is a female model and has the personality quirk of sarcasm, however, when "she" is not activelly utilizing said module, Alice seems to be "normal".

How familiar are you with support roles? (ie; Medical, MT, Science, SO)
Very familiar with said roles, altought i struggle a bit with chemistry (Wich means i keep the wiki open and take more time to make chemicals).

Why should we whitelist you?
Well, i've been playing Colonial Marines for a looong while now, and i have only applied to the Commander Whitelist so far, and i heard you guys wanted more Synths, so i tought it would be worth a shot, since they have a fairly unique gameplay.

Have you been banned from CM in the last month for any reason (we will check, and lies may result in immediate denial)?
No, and i've never been banned on CM (Pretty sure)

Are you currently banned from any other servers and if so, why?
Yes, Paradise Station. Well, i had a long story with Paradise, but the latest ban was for shooting an energy gun on disabler mode at a very suspicious crewmember going out of a breached vault.

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

I can trust this man. +1

Good hunting.

I like your background story.
I don't recognize you from the back of my head.
Good notes.
Already accepted as a Commander.
You have donor status (which shows me your dedication to the server).
We need more girls.
forum account is all the way back from 2015.

Great notes, not a griefer, and I believe is proficient in 'most' roles. 1+, I believe you would be a good helper in my duties.

Thanks for the inputs and views so far!
If anyone would like me to tell the full story from Operation Bedrock, tell me right away! Altough i think part of the fun is that it's told in a cryptic way, as if you only had the SS13 chat avaliable, no visuals.
Also, the other folders are set to "ACESS DENIED" because it was really late when i finished writing the first story.

I think it's better to say one is neutral rather than say nothing and ghost over the thread, as it tells the applicant people ARE in fact reading their application. I'm at a neutral for this right now because:

CONS

1. I haven't seen Sergio Stone ever, so I question your ability to pull off the roles that synthetics perform. What timezone do you play in most of the time?
2. Your grammar isn't all that good, if it isn't your first language I totally understand and will disregard this comment. A synthetic is supposed to be the epitome of the perfect worker, and as a by-product, can communicate accurately and exactly.
3. It might be just because you want to express your synth's personality as much as you can in the background, but I feel like the sarcastic remarks are used too often and should be reserved for a real one liner. This is just personal preference, and isn't really a valid criticism.

PROS

1. You have an old forum account, and are also a donor, so it shows that you have some time under your belt here.
2. The sarcastic personality would be very enjoyable to RP with, as too many synths are the generic David or Bishop personality.
3. I REALLY like the formatting, the color scheme and data logs add a nice character to the background.
4. There are only two female synthetics I know of on the server, so another one would be a nice addition.
5. You're accepted as a CO, so I imagine I can trust your RP abilities.

Overall, just work on your grammar and try to tell me more about how else Alice reacts to situations, besides the 'ol sarcasm.

First of all thank you for your feedback, i mostly play on my afternoons and nights, most of the time at weekends, since i am usually buzy at the weekdays, (My country's time zone is UTC-03:00)
Indeed, english isn't my first language (It is Brazilian Portuguese, a variation from Portuguese) and some times i slip up, and indeed,i understand that a synthetic should have perfect grammar on communication, but considering what is written usually should be interpreted as people/xenos/animals/synthetics talking to eachother i think i'm good as long as people actually get what i'm saying
Well, Alice will react to situations as synths usually would (Being mostly emotionless and following orders as long as they do not breach marine law), since according to lore every synthetic gets one single personality quirk.

You'll get better at writing and grammar, and also I saw Sergio Stone the other day. I thought your SO RP was pretty adequate, so this'll earn my

+1
