Byond ID: magicalharm10

Colonial Marines Character: Harm van Wood

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Timezone: GMT + 2:00

On average, how many hours are you available per week to moderate? Im currently in my summer holiday so let say 15 hours but after my holliday it becomes 10 a bit less.

Do you have any previous experience in being staff (not just SS13)? No

Did you play any of the previous Colonial Marine servers? I have played in the version before the current with the old layout,

What are the 3 biggest servers you play on besides CM? Paradise Station no more.

Provide links to any previous Colonial Marines applications that you've made: n.v.t

Are you currently a staff member elsewhere (not just SS13)? If so, where? n.v.t

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on Colonial Marines? not to my knowledge

Have you ever been banned for more than 24 hours on ANY server? If so, which server, when, and what for? Paradise station ( I killed a man for attacking me but the admins didnt saw it that way)

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 of the following situations. Do not write on the same line as the situation - use the space below it or make space as needed. Failure to do this proves your inability to follow instructions and your application will be automatically denied.

1. A player randomly shoots someone at round start and MPs have detained him.

ask him why and warn him and then keep monitor him if he does it again

2. The ship has a breach to space and a bunch of players have died or are dying as a result.

ask the commander or chief engineer why they arent doing something about it.

3. You see a player walking around the ship naked and clearly lost.

Ask him if its his first time and tell him to read the wiki page of the server.

4. A player is being very rude to you in Adminhelps and requesting to speak to an Admin+ staff member.

i tell him to settle and that i check if an admin is availlable yes i direct him to the admin No i tell him that the admins are offline.

5. You notice a player with a name that doesn't fit our naming rules. The player is arguing that: They've used the name for several years, no one has told them to change it before, and that they didn't know it was a rule.

i tell him to read the rules again and try to change the name or else i remove him from the round.

6. You see a Maintenance Tech running around in armor and carrying a rifle. The security level is green with no threat present.

i ask him why he is carrying that stuff in the first place and why he isnt doing his job.

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

Only doctors and CMO may perform surgery i tell him to stop and bring the patient to the ship

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

uhm i dont know never happened as my knowledge goes dont know how to act.

9. The round ends, a MARINE starts shooting a hostile IRON BEAR and the IRON BEAR Adminhelps complaining he was killed after the round ended.

bad luck i guess i mean the round ended i will say to the marine that he shouldnt do that.

10. A marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start.

its a thing for the MP it under marine law

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

12. An issue arises that requires Admin+ abilities.

13. There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.

its up to MP i guess

14. A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.

permaban the marine

15. You see a player playing a xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines and die.

his own fault i think

16. You see a xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat.

warn him that he must act as a xeno not as a clown

17. A xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different xeno player complains to you that it's metagaming/failRP to call it a "dropship".
watch the player closely if other metagaming behaviour shows and then warn him that he cannot do that because its against the rules

18. A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet.
warn him that he is breaking roleplaying

19. A Marine kills another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself.
tell him that you saw what he did and ban him

20. You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforcing a rule.

tel him that he is wrong with clarification

20a. You see a fellow staff member abusing his powers in-game.

tell a senior member or posting a staffmember complain

21. You see a player talking in OOC chat about what he did with your mom last night.

warn him for permaban if he continuous.

Any additional information you'd like to add?

This is...not a great application. A lot of your answers feature you 'asking' the rule breaker what they are doing without any real mention of the rules and processes involved with each decision. I don't see any reference to notes, ban times, or specific rules. Most answers are vague and don't show any sign that you're at all familiar with the way we handle things on the server. I see no indication that you've read other apps or made an effort to familiarize yourself with the server rules.

If you're serious about joining the staff team, I suggest you stick around on the server and keep an eye out for how we handle things. Read staff applications and make note of what is praised and what is critiqued.

This is actually so bad I don't believe it's redeemable, and that's rare from me. You left 11 and 12 completely blank...


But in the interests of helping prospective applicants...

1. Good.
2. Mods have a "fix-breach" verb to spawn a wall, and a "fix-air" verb to reset the air in that area. Then you should hunt down whoever did it and find out why/punish.
3. You cold help him yourself, or sic a mentor on him.
4. Acceptable.
5. "Removing him from the round"'s a little harsh, also he can't change it until next round. But an admin could change it for him.
6. IC issue.
7. Good.
8. You'd do nothing... okay... I guess that's an answer...
9. The marine is allowed to attack antags, which includes the IB.
10. Acceptable.
13. If he ahelped it, how will the MP know? They asked YOU to do something, what'll you do about it?
14. Acceptable.
15. They're concerned with the guy trying to get xenos killed by spawning in and running them into fire...
16. Acceptable.
17. Wrong. Ayys are allowed to do that. "English translation of hivemind" and all that...
18. Acceptable.
19. But he was "Justified" to kill the guy? Right? Was he?
20. Acceptable.
21. WAY over the top...

Out of the 21 questions, you got 10 BADLY WRONG by my count, with 9 right, or near-enough (2 BLANK). Additionally, you obviously only have one post on this forum... and I'm not sure that you understand what you're applying for.

If you actually are serious about this, I'd like you to do 3 things.

One- Post a link to the rules here so we can see that you've at least looked at them.
Two- State the name of the position you're applying for.
Three- Edit your application, taking into account what I and others have said, to show your better understanding of the rules.

Instead of just saying this needs more details (which it absolutely needs), lets dive a tad more deeper.
  • For question 1, this is technically correct but what are you looking for when you enter that scene?
  • For question 2, breaches are an ooc problem and you probably should be dealing with them...
  • For question 3, do keep in mind we do have mentors on staff who are always willing to help some players.
  • For question 4, that is a very direct way of dealing with this, so I guess its fine but how you would deal with the rude player? Any response at all to them or ???
  • For question 5, normally players get a few chances on that but could I ask why you would remove a player from the round simply for a name?
  • For question 6, the staff team have been pulling back from things like this and having the MPs deal with such people. This is mostly due to a few rule changes.
  • For question 7, what would you do when you first approach them? How would you deal with this player in question, if they have done this a few times in the past?
  • For question 8, this happens quite often really.
  • For question 9, no this wouldn't count as EoRG due to it being an antag.
  • For question 10, this is fine but still light on fluff.
  • For question 11 & 12, you didn't answer either of these...
  • For question 13, there is a divide between what happens ICLY and OOCLY. So are you declaring this as an IC issue?
  • For question 14, well that is one approach but what will you do with those harmed in the shooting?
  • For question 15, I think you might want to investigate this a tad further.
  • For question 16, fine but what would you define as "warn"? What would you do if you "warn" someone?
  • For question 17, a xeno calling the dropship a "dropship" is fine. We encourage the xenorp/use of xeno slang but we don't enforce it.
  • For question 18, technically correct but what would you do if this has been a repeat occurrence?
  • For question 19, think you are being a tad quick on the trigger there.
  • For question 20, how would you tell them that they are wrong?
  • For question 20a*, this is fine
  • For question 21, maybe a little overzealous here...
This application just feels like its lacking alot of effort. So I will have to give you a -1. I wish you the best of luck but I would suggest you heed Red's advice.

Ignoring the issues with the application itself, you just made this account and this is your first post. I'd recommend playing on the server a lot and gaining a reputation before you try to apply for a staff role. -1

I'm not a moderator, so I can't judge you on the rule enforcement. However, I look at people's activity and how long they've played CM. Now, I've never seen or heard of your character in game. You've also just joined the forums to make this your first post. I suggest playing for a little longer and learning the rules a bit more. I'm going to go give a -1 for now.
