Are you familiar with the administration mod known as ‘ULX’?: Nah, but I have started watching tutorials on it, and will put in effort so I properly know how to use it.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how well are you known throughout the community by both players and staff members?: I'd say quite well. I've been super active in every regiment I've been in, not to mention on discord. And when allied with a faction, I offer a lot of help to allies.
Are you currently in Colossal Gaming Steam group?: Yes. I joined about a week after I first joined the server
Do you follow and enforce the server rules to the best of your ability?: Yeah. I recently have been yelling at rdm'ing taliban when at their debriefs, as I often see them doing it without consequence. I also advise new players to stop team-killing if they do so.

Why should the staff team accept you as a Moderator on Colossal Gaming Military Roleplay?: I like to look at things from both points of view (Innocent until proven guilty etc). I am very active, and I am easy to get along with. I can also stay very calm, and I don't take things personally. I'm a really quick learner, and I'm always teaching myself new things (recently learned Hammer map-making). I want to contribute to the future of this community, and help shape it into the absolute best fucking community on garry's mod.
Discuss your ability to work in a team and give examples that demonstrate this: I don't argue with higher ups. I help run RU at the moment. I am willing to accept criticism, and will take other's ideas into consideration. I get along with 95% of people I meet. I like to contribute my point of view, I will say if someone's idea is garbage, I use my initiative.
Discuss any past experiences that you believe have impacted the server and player(s) positively: Me joining RU helping to boost it to a point it can defend itself during a raid. I encouraged allies in events, and I'm a good sport even if we lose.
Describe your personality and speak a little about yourself: I am kind, sometimes a bit sensitive, although i can take an insult. I also am super-creatively wired. I am quite cheerful usually, and very positive and encouraging. I am very into music (I do music production as a hobby), I really like to make people laugh, I really enjoy doing funny RP in CG. I am from the north island of New Zealand, and I come from a large family of 4 older sisters and 2 brothers. I prefer cats to dogs, although I love dogs almost as much, but their hair make me sneeze. I am currently studying with an aim of becoming an engineer. I have survived through several large earthquakes, which probably is why I can handle stress so well.)
Scenario 1: A player with an attack heli 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, I'd check kill logs, to see if it's legit. Then I'd go invisible, and go to the scene of the crime. I would then talk to the victim/witness. Bring in the offender to the sit, and hear his side of the story. If he mouths off to me, or threatens to do it again I'd ban him for a week. If he's very apologetic, I'd just give him a verbal warn/actual warn depending on if he's first time offender/repeat offender. I would then return him to where he was along with the person who originally made the ticket.
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? I would start by deleting the props he placed, and then teleport him into the sit room. I would then ask him why; after getting previously asked to stop doing it, I caught him doing it again. If he appears to be mingy, and un-resentful I would probably demote him from officer rank, and give him a warn. If he threatens to keep doing it or starts acting worse, I would ban him. If he is apologetic, and resentful I would just give him a warn and tell him not to do it again. I would then teleport him back to where he was.
Good luck with your application! If you've got any questions please contact the @Head Administrator
