Post by Heckenshutze » 21 Aug 2017, 13:49

Byond ID: Heckenshutze

Colonial Marines Character: Ruben Dario

Age: 23

Gender: Male

Timezone: UTC-04:00 Caracas, Venezuela

On average, how many hours are you available per week to moderate?: Depending on the week, I can easily fullfil 24 hours and more.

Do you have any previous experience in being staff (not just SS13)?: Some RP online games and it's forums but not as popular as this game.

Did you play any of the previous Colonial Marine servers?: I've been playing since the Sulaco but never experienced Prison map and other older versions of the game.

What are the 3 biggest servers you play on besides CM?: My first server was Baystation then moved to Goonstation. I've tried other servers as well like Yog and Hippie but never been too active.

Provide links to any previous Colonial Marines applications that you've made: 1) Predator Whitelist: viewtopic.php?f=125&t=10088

2) Synth Whitelist: viewtopic.php?f=150&t=14445

* I applied to mentor VIA PM.

Are you currently a staff member elsewhere (not just SS13)? If so, where?: Mentor in Goonstation but that's because the Head Of Security whitelist gives you the rank automatically.

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, which server, when, and what for?: Banned once for multikeying from Goonstation, reason is we're three brothers playing with the same IP.

Are you familiar with the chat program Slack (its use is required)?: Yes, I used it since mentoring.

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.

Answer: First of all, since the MP's already detained him I wouldn't interfere directly, I investigate the situation, checking the logs to see if there's a valid reason behind the shooting, PM the agressor and ask for explanations, then check the notes of the player; depending on his records and the magnitude of the offense a 3 hour/ 12 hour ban would be applied to the agressor and a note of the event, then, depending on how much IC was involved in the shooting I'd proceed to heal the injured/death players if the medics haven't done it or the damage was just too high for the players to solve it themselves.


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

Answer: Investigate the source of the breach, since ship breaches aren't a normal thing on the game and how bad atmospherics can screw the round evolution or ending, check the logs to see if it was made by another player or it was made by the dropship itself. If a player did it, proceed to PM him about the offense, heal the injured/death and place a note on his records; a 3 hour ban might be applied depending on his note regarding the event. Then proceed to fix the breach. If the breach was made by the dropship I'd not interfere.


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

Answer: First of all, check if there's any mentors on and tell them there's this player walking around naked and lost, clearly new to the game. However, I would keep an eye on him since being new doesn't imply they wouldn't do something stupid, if there's no mentors on I would PM him and give him some basics about the game then contact mentors via slack so they can give him a proper explanation of how the game works.

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

Answer: Act cool and indifferent. Tell the player to calm down so he can be taken seriously, if unable to complain, Warn the player and make a note about it and if he keeps doing it proceed to mute him from Ahelps. Even if he follows my petition, I would ask the Admin+ before anything, if the Admin+ for any reason doesn't respond at all, I tell the player to make his complain on the forums.

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.

Answer: Ask the player if he had read our rules then ask him to change the name for a lore-friendly one next round. Explain him the reason we don't allow certain character names and add a note of this event to his records. If the name is offensive regarding our rules, a 3 hour ban would be applied; same ban would follow is he was already warned once for the name.

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

Answer: Since it's an IC issue, I would just observe the player, waiting for MP's to detain him for the offense; I'd act if the player starts breaking our rules. SM the MP's about checking non-military crew using weapons if they don't seem to act, if there are no MP's, SM the MT and if he doesn't follow, PM him and add a note to his records. If the situation escalates to a worse offense (Grief, Improper escalation etc) a ban of 3/12/36 would be applied depending on the offense.

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

Answer: Explain to the player that medics aren't allowed to perfom surgery under any circunstances even if they get promoted to Doctors. Tell him to suture the player incision and to hand him to a Doctor; add a note and a warning about the situation and if the player already has a note about the same thing, a 3 hour ban would proceed with a job ban.

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?

Answer: For marines, use ARES to encourage marines to re-deploy to the planet and eliminate the remaining hostile forces
in addition with USCM High Command announcements about the consequences for not completing the mission.

For xenos, use Queen Mother to order the Queen to do or die for the sake of her Hive in addition to a small, simple SM to the Queen telling her that, she must avenge her fallen children.


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.

Answer: Explain to the Iron Bear that yet EORG is a offense that deserves a ban without warnings, players from opposite sides can still attack/kill each other until the game resets

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

Answer: I would see it as an IC issue and let the MP's to handle the issue, depending of the MP's acting or the lack of any, PM the player to stop it and giving out a warning and a note on his records.

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

Answer: Check the player notes, add invalid proper escalation to his records with an explanation of it. If it was a repeated offense apply a 24 hour ban. If he's clean, apply a 3 hour ban to the killer. Aheal the dead marine and ask him to explain his version of the event, depending on the marine's answer, add a note or a warning.

12. An issue arises that requires Admin+ abilities.

Answer: Call for an Admin+ using Msay, if there are not admins online, place a message on Slack about the situation and what is required. If admins for any reason don't show up, Make a note about the incident or situation and inform an Admin+ when he's available.

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.

Answer: Explain to the player that in some excent, minor racism and general jerking is allowed to a certain point IC. But tell him that is he's really offended I can take action asking the other players to stop it.

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

Answer: For precaution, sleep the griefer. Aheal all the affected and tell them to stop Ahelping and resuming the RPlay. Then proceed to check the player notes, add a 3 hour/ 7 hour ban with a perma request depending on his notes, and adding one myself.

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

Answer: PM the player asking for an explanation, telling him that if he needed to log off or didn't wanted to play xeno, ghosting would do the trick and allow for other player to play the xenomorph, check the player notes and if he's a repeat offender apply a job ban with a 3 hour ban. If not, heavily warn him and add a note.


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

Answer: PM the player tell him that he's breaking Xeno RP and he must stop it, add a note and a warning. If he's a repeat offender and has another warning regarding the same issue, apply a 3 hour ban.

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".

Answer: Explain to the ahelper that Hivermind is an english translation of the xenomorph thoughts so calling the shuttle "Dropship" is ok.

18. A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet.

Answer: OOC the marines reminding them that they do not know nothing about the aliens or the infestation on the colony at roundstart, PM the the command staff player that gave the brief and explain the committed Metagaming and there before, broke our rules. Proceed to warn him and check his notes and add one myself, is he's a repeat offender apply a 3 hour ban.

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.

Answer: Ask for any witnesses about how they roleplayed the escalation, asking one party or another wouldn't fit since they would both give biased responses. If there are not witnesses check the logs to see if there was any RP and a proper escalation of the scene. Check the notes of the killer and if he has any notes regarding similar incidents apply a note myself and a 24 hour ban then proceed to aheal the victim.

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

Answer: Talk to the staff member via Msay or PM about he's wrong about the info or the rule enforcing and explain to him what's the correct rule / action.

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

Answer: Gather proof, PM the staff member about what he's doing and that he needs to stop it. Handle the proof to SLC and tell him to keep an eye on him for future incidents.

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

Answer: Ignore. people sometimes are Class-A jerks.

Any additional information you'd like to add?: To be honest, All I wanted was to mentor but now I want a change about my responsabilities in the game, Slc encouraged me twice to do it and my first try was too early, so here I am again. Nothing much to say.

Also I watched a lot of approved apps to answer this questions myself. That ain't cheating right?..

.. Right?

For number 2. What other situation(s) would a breach not be repaired by mod intervention? How would you differ a note from a player who intentionally breached and a player who accidently breached?

3. alright- "I would keep an eye on him since being new doesn't imply they wouldn't do something stupid" anything you would do to quickly investigate?

4. Ok- I would refrain from making notes until after the incident is solved since it's easy to get side tracked. What would you do if no admin+ were online?

5. - If the player is arguing they've used it for a long time they can also try to appeal the name on the forums for use.

6. I would refrain from pming as this is stricly an IC issue now.

8. Mods do not have access to ares- knowing this how would you change your marine answer

10. If there are mps around, best to give them a nudge to help.

11. How would you check for improper escalation vs proper escalation?

And looking at other apps is not cheating- that's becoming informed.

2) a) A xeno accidentally melting his way throught but breached into space, then making a resin wall to seal the hole.

b) A marine placing C4 on a wall causing a breach into space, MP's taking him to brig and the Engineering team seals the breach. Both of them can occur without any mod intervention.

* Notes most of the times are specific on what the agressor answer to the mods, however, you can see if it was on purpose or on accident by the way he did it, the amount of notes he has on his records and of course the logs. Logs don't lie.

3) Prevention is the better cure, a small haunting over the new player and trying to communicate with him until a mentor arrives should do the trick.

4) Ping an admin+ on Slack explaining the issue, if I don't get a response tell the player to move his complain to the forums.

5) Noted, then I would inform that to them if they argue about changing it.

6) Roger, then I'll just haunt the situation just in case

8) SM the CO or the acting commander, persuading him to re-deploy to the planet.

10) In case there are MP's around, since I can't use Ares I would SM the CMP about having a bad feeling about a certain area of the Almayer (Where the issue is happening)

11) Using real life logic and social behaviour, you don't instantly gun down someone that pushed or punched you, you would be considered a Sociopath or a psyco. In a place were we're all military personnel and all of them went throught Boot Camp you'd think they know HOW much a discussion must evolve to end in a shooting and the consequences that would carry.

Example: Two marines fighting for X reason, they argue, they insult each other, they fight with fists for a brief time, one of them pulls a knife out or heavily injures the other then guns start to show up. That's proper escalation.

Improper escalation: A marine insults another, this one, wields his shotgun and blasts his face. // A marine punches another marine once, this one sticks out his knife and stabs to death the offender.

For number 2. Predator bombs are generally allowed breaches.

3. Alright- but also remember you can always quickly check notes.

Everything else seems good

For 7: what with the addition of the skills system medics should no longer be able to ever perform surgery.

For 14: Our banning times usually go from Three hours to one day to three days and tops off at seven days, I would also personally issue a twenty four hour ban for this on the first offense considering they logged off before being contacted.

For 18: This sort of thing is usually a job ban on repeated offenses.

That aside everything else looks fine to me!, I'll give it a +1!

Answer:

A) 3 hour ban straight, enough time to read our rules, make a note of the incident myself.

B) 7 days ban with a perma request, player indeed won't change his behaviour

C) 24 hour ban straight. Player should had seen our rules already, put a note about having this player on observation.

So, I like your answers, and I like your app, but I currently have to deny this solely based off of the fact that I have pulled too many moderators up from the mentor team recently. We are currently at a point where taking more mentors would disparage the team. There will however be a spot open for you on the team when I contact you once I am able to pull from the mentor team.
