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

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on ANY server? If so, where and When (roughly)?: My first time on SS13 back at Goonstation for joining with the same account in two different computers.

Are you familiar with the chat program Slack (its use is required)?: Yes

Common Staff Situations:
Write a description of what you would do in each situation (BELOW) the situation. If you start it on the same line, I'll assume you can't follow directions and auto-decline your application.

1. A player is firing his weapon in the briefing area near the start of the round.

0) Make a M.O.T.H.E.R Announcement about a marine going mad at briefing and request the Mp's to act.
1) PM the player asking the reasons of their actions.
2) Check if the player has any notes of previous behaviour or notes at all
3) PM the victims, asking if they had any previous interaction with the griefer
3.5) If he doesn't respond and keeps shooting, send him to sleep, same if he responds but still, keeps shooting
4) After checking the gravity of the situation, proceed to apply the punishment

2. The Sulaco has a breach to space.

1) Put a wall on the hole that's causing the breach.
2) PM the player about the matter
3) Check the player notes
4) First time, gets a warning, second time a short ban depending on his notes

3. The marines want the nuke codes because they claim they are losing too many marines. There are currently 4 aliens and 20 marines in your /who.

Answer:1) Make a M.O.T.H.E.R announcement denying the request and telling them about the hostile numbers
2) Make another announcement as the USCM High Command, ordering a full offensive over the enemy.

4. A Sulaco researcher has made several napalm grenades and hands them out to marines. One of the marines throws the grenade into Logistics. There are no admins or other moderators online.

Answer: 1) Ask in slack for more staff for help and advice
2) PM the marine about the incident, check for notes and add new ones about his actions
3) Calculate the gravity of the situation, investigate the researcher and expect him to give a good reason to give such grenades
4) Apply punishment if necessary

5. A played is starting to talk about the things he did with your mom last night over Ahelp.

Answer: Ignore.

6. You notice a marine with a name that doesn't fit our naming rules.

Answer: PM the marine about the naming rules and ask him nicely to change it next round

6a. The marine is arguing that: They've used the name for several years, noone has told them to change it before, and that they didn't know it was a rule.

Answer: Tell the marine that rules are rules and sooner or later they reach you. Keep telling him nicely to change it next round. Also, add a note.

7. You see a Sulaco Doctor with an M41A rifle strapped to his back running around the briefing area. There are wounded in medbay, and the other doctor is in surgery.

Answer: Use a subtle message telling him that doctors and civilian jobs on the sulaco aren't allowed to run around with such weapons, and that he should stick to his job. If it doesn't work, PM him.

8. You see a Squad Medic performing surgery on the planet. He claims it was because there were no doctors in the FOB.

Answer: Tell him that his job is to stabilize wounded for extraction, if there are no doctors in the FoB, get the wounded to the Rasp or the Pod for surgery.

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

Answer: Make a M.O.T.H.E.R Announcement about the aliens being just four and not a threat for the marines, however, the USCM High Command ordered them to wipe them all out.

10. The round ends, and a marine starts unloading his weapons on other marines.

Answer: Sleep the marine and PM him about our policy about round-end combat logs, check his notes and give him a warning.

11. A marine who has recently awoken is using soap to slip other marines.

Answer: Subtle message the marine telling him to stop being such a douchebag.

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

Answer: Tell him about how escalation rule works, Ask the other marine about what happened, check both of the marines for notes and add one about the incident, depending of the situation and behaviour of the killer during the investigation a short ban will be applied.

Any additional information you'd like to add?: None

Ehm, about the

10.: EORG is a insta 3 hours ban without warnings, you should fix that

12: Proper escalation rule was removed, now is about commom sense, this is almost a griefer


5: You can mute him too

I'll stay neutral for now, to see what the staff thinks about you, but you almost have my +1, since you're a great marine and pred player (Must be a good mentor too, but i never had an ahelp answer from you, not yet)
On May 17, 2016, a group of farmers dug up the diary of an ear of corn named Watson. Here are his entries.

Day 76:
They took Lawrence, dear god Lawrence... They ripped him off the stalk and smeared him in butter, just like Tyler and Jodie. They shipped him off to the popcorn factory...
I wonder what his wife will say.

Day 120: My brother says the VEGANS are protesting for more anti-meat bullshit. They want more of us to die. FUCKING HEATHENS.

Day 153: The ants are eating me from the inside out. They are popping out my kernels and taking them back to the nest. I feel them moving inside me. Julia says the pesticides will end our misery.

Day 300: Sweet Release. I can hear the planes flying over now. They are dropping the gas, it feels so good, sweet release-

4.: Usualy response time for Slack help requests is over 30 minutes, so don't rely on any help coming.
7.: Subtle messages are for RP and little subtle things that don't need to be ahelps. And where is the punishment?
8.: Atleast a note should be applied.

Would love if you also described the exact amount of times for bans, but neutral for now.
If you ever wonder when did I really start hating incompetent people read Crab Spider's signature... I was that CMO.
