Why should the staff team accept you as a Moderator on Colossal Gaming Military Roleplay?: The staff team should consider accepting me into the staff team for a couple of reasons. Mainly being as I've previously been apart of the CG Staff team as a Administrator this has helped me over the year and a bit I was staff to understand and know what expectations are expected from me being a staff member. I will as I previously have done being a staff member in the server enforce the rules to the best of my ability. As many of you know I was removed from Administrator by Deston when he was Super admin for Abuse of power for no-clipping to a mini event. I can ensure that this will not happen again and I will do not only the staff team the server and myself by doing the right thing and making sure that that Does not happen again.
Discuss your ability to work in a team and give examples that demonstrate this: I believe that I've had a lot of experience not only just in this server but elsewhere. Working with others and contributing your best to every situation is what I've been doing since I first joined the server. I've been in charge and in command of many regiments including. SAS, Green Berets, (Old Commanding Officers) and of course GOA, which has helped me along the way gain confidence to work with different people and use communication as much as possible.
Discuss any past experiences that you believe have impacted the server and player(s) positively: My past experiences in CG that I believe have made an impact in the server and community. Is when I first made Corporal in US Scouts back in the day. First thing I wanted to do was to assist or get someone to watch me train trainees, and a while later I managed to reach Drill Sergeant which helped me of course try my best to make it as active as possible as I wasn't back then. To do my part in helping and making the server better, getting trainees though the training and onto joining regiments of their choice. After climbing up the ranks to Field General and then onto GOA. I believe that I have impacted the server as positively as I can being a single person. As there is so much I can do. Of course there are many more but to just say a couple.
Describe your personality and speak a little about yourself: To describe myself, I would think I'm an easy approachable person. I've tried my best to interact with the newer people that have joined CG since I left a while back. I'm always willing to step up to the challenge and put my best foot forward, I've always been a shy person and I am trying to work on that but it takes time of course. As putting myself forward to things helps to boost that morale for myself.
Scenario 1: A player with an attack helicopter has intentionally fired in front of the enemy base gates to kill someone with a bounty, but also killing players inside the base. A ticket is made by one of these bystanders and the attacker denies all the accusations saying it was an accident saying that there was no proof
Question 1: As a Moderator, how do you react? First thing I would do is check the kill logs to see if it actually happened. Depending if the kill logs gives me enough evidence pointing towards the pilot did or did not kill the person inside the gate. I will pull both of them into a sit asking their side of the story and asking if they have any evidence, If the attacker starts to get aggressive I would calm the situation down as best as I can and deal with it as I see fit. If the attacker is calm and collective depending on what the kill logs and both party's tell me I would hand out a verbal warning (Depending on the attackers previous warning/kicks etc.) If they do it again I would hand out a Warning for RDM or for Solo Raiding.
Scenario 2: A Chief/Officer has been caught spawning in props to prop climb a wall despite previous warnings from staff for doing similar things. You tell him to stop but a few hours later another staff member catches him doing it.
Question 2: As a Moderator, how do you react? Firstly the first time it happens I would contact his Officer/Chief and inform him of what has happened and the consequences that could happen if he is caught doing it again. If he is caught again which in this case he is, I would take the Officer/Chief into a sit and ask them what why they are doing the same thing that I or another staff member told them not to do an hour ago. If they lie and say they didn't do it I would notify their higher up and other staff members about the situation and talk to the higher up officer/chief to consider a demotion for the person who is abusing their powers. If they are compliant and tell me straight up what they did wrong I would still inform their senior officer/chief of the situation and tell them to keep an eye on him and I would also inform the other staff online in admin chat and in the staff discord to keep an eye on him.
Thank you for taking the time for reading my application and I hope you can consider me to be apart of the staff team once again. Etho.
