    Date of first joining server: Joined forums 28 April, 2016, Gametracker doesn't say the first time i actually joined the server :mad:

    1. What drove you to apply to be a trial admin?
    This server has given me countless hours of fun and i wanna give back to the server. It's really fun and nice as well.

    2. What assets would you bring to the admin team if you were to be accepted?
    I can come on pretty early (I wake up pretty early) and help when no one else is on. I am also generally quite nice and approachable

    3. How many hours on average do you spend on the server and over which time of day? Would this likely change drastically over the medium term?
    Recently i haven't been on much, mostly because i have yearlies next week. I can come on for about 4/5 hours a day after next week (after my yearlies are done). I can't really come on Friday until about 10pm, but other days i can usually come on during the day.

    4. Have you had any past experience as a moderator/administrator? If yes, give specifics as much as you can and also explain what lead to you leaving them.
    Haven't had any D:

    5. Have you received any punishment from our admin team besides the inevitable slays for RDM? Give as much detail as you can.
    Nothing really of concern

    6. In your opinion what is the single best quality for an administrator of Arcadia to possess and how would you work towards having this as a trial admin?
    Friendliness and patience are what i think are the best qualities for an admin (i know it's 2 but eh ;)

    7. List the current Staff Members of Arcadia Gaming.
    Owner - RainbowGauntlet
    Owner - MitsuNeko
    Developer - Yanz
    Cm - Ailuros
    Cm - Xylo
    Smelly - Derp
    Admin - Obi-Juan Kenobi

    Tryhard - Tanix
    Admin - Scorpina

    Admin - AJ
    Admin - Rainbow

    Admin - Gary
    Admin - Panda

    Admin - HepticYoshi

    1. A group of about 4 newbies join the server during the current round and you are the only staff member online. One of them has the name “Nucking Figger” and another has the name “Myself”. One of the other 2 begins to read the !motd and deliberately mention every disallowed word/topic such as “Wow, I can’t talk about how great Hitler was or how much the holo-costed?”. The final one starts to deep-throat his microphone and prevent anyone else from being heard over his singing/shouting. In the meantime you ran a server command to show that they are all steam friends with each other. How do you handle this situation?

    I would kick the first guy, telling him to change his name if he wants to come back.
    I would tell the guy named "Myself" to change his name, and if he doesn't i would kick him telling him the first message i gave to the first guy.
    I would mute the third guy who read the MOTD, and tell him not to do it again. After a while i would unmute him and if he did it again, i would kick him.
    I would gag the final guy for a while and tell him to stop mic spamming. After a while, i would unmute him and see what he does. If he continued it, i would kick him.
    Because they were all friends, i would go spec or buy in to check if they were meta


    2. You and a fellow staff member are currently online when 2 new players join together. During the next round one of the players proceeds to destroy 4-5 traitors single-handed, most of whom report him. Upon reflecting on the round you notice that the other new player was a traitor and once the reports are finished it seems the innocent had very weak to no reason to kill the traitors. Your fellow staff member doesn’t seem to have noticed anything suspicious and is looking to slay/ban them for RDM. How do you proceed?

    I would just let the other staff member know what i realised and let him/her take that into account with the reports. If they did it again i would just ban them for meta.

    3. A well known respected player is exploiting a map glitch/error to make themselves invulnerable and/or block off an area for the players. How do you deal with this?

    I would tell him/her to not do it again and tp them out of the area. If they kept doing them i would warn them for the last time and i would ask a cm or another admin on what to do.

    4. You join the forums late one night to find that a few people are causing problems on them for others. One person is spamming the shoutbox with links to NSFW websites and images. A second is posting multiple messages in a recent respected application and harassing the player unmercifully. The third one begins to spam new threads all around the forums with no real reason to do so. Explain what you might do.

    I would first delete all the bad messages and tell them that it is against the rules and to stop. If they continued to do it, i would just ban them

    5. You are dealing with an RDM report. The ‘victim’ is clearly RDM’d by the ‘reported player’ but in the report the ‘victim’ just puts “Kill yourself you stupid N*****”. Explain how you would proceed with this report.

    I would give the slay, and message the 'victim' that the language is against the rules. If the 'victim' continued the language, i would kick them and ban them if they came back and kept saying it.

    6. You are dealing with an RDM report. In the report the ‘victim’ claims that the ‘reported player’ attempted to RDM him. The ‘victim’ therefore shot the ‘reported player’ in self defence but ultimately was shot by the detective for it. The ‘reported player’ claims that he was shooting a wall pretty clearly and that the ‘victim’ deliberately ran in front of it to justify shooting and reporting him. You sigh to yourself sip your coffee and start to check the evidence. Explain how you might resolve this situation.

    I would first watch the death scene to see what really happened. I would then tell the 'reported player' to maybe not shoot a wall as some people might think it's t-baiting or something else. I would also tell the 'victim' to not run into bullets because it can lead to RDM and RDM chains which are annoying. I would give both players a warning

    Declaration:

    As an Administrator of Arcadia, you are responsible for protecting the server and keeping the peace. You are also assigned as the Community Representative, which means you are to:

    • Not abuse the rank given to you
    • Not to go on other Servers/Communities and disrupt their activities. (Spamming, Abusing, etc.)
    • Not to Use your Rank as Bragging rights to Other Players
    • Not to let personal feelings obstruct your duty
    If any of these rules are broken, you will be stripped of your rank and will not be able to re-apply unless you wait 1 month and re-apply (Unlikely to be re-accepted). The Administration team will not tolerate users who give this community a bad reputation.

    I
    Animoo Acknowledge the requirements and prerequisites that are needed to become Trial Admin in the community. I recognise this as a prestigious rank held by the most trusted in the community and by joining the order, I promise not to turn on the community by abusing my powers. I devote my prowess in Administration to the Community Managers and strive to provide a fun to play server with minimal discrimination.

    Good job on applying for staff Animoo, few things I would like to say.

    Situational acts.
    (Note: These are my suggestions, take them for whatever value you wish.)

    1. I would personally give the first player a chance to fix his name before kicking him, but if he down right refuses, I would kick him, as you said.

    3. In that situation the best thing to do if the ignore all your attempts to warn them against their behaviour is to treat them like anyone else, kick them or even ban them depending on the severity and the previous warnings given, I would also suggest giving them a respected strike or informing a CM on how to proceed.

    4. Pretty vague answer, I personally would issue a ban for anyone posting NSFW content in the shoutbox, I also assume you would delete the spammed replies/threads as well.



    Other than that, your application is pretty good, however I'm a bit worried about your activity, you have been a bit on and off but when you are playing you do usually play for extended periods of time which is good to see. You also seem to become discouraged when larger amounts of players join the server, going as far as to leaving when the population rises. As an admin you really have to be prepared to handle a full server, as often, you may be the only admin available.

    I'm going to give you a -1 based on my grievances above, don't be discouraged however as I may change my vote later on.

    Edit: removed dumb remark

    I would take uberz response to situational act 5 as a grain of salt personally, neither answer was more or less correct than the other. And in all honesty I'm more inclined to go with your answer than his...

    Just to be clear about this, we don't expect or require perfect answers to every question since there are some things that a non-admin couldn't know about. We more are interested in your thinking given these situations so we can guide potentials in the right direction and way of thinking. For situational act 5 the main thing we want to see is that you pick up on the bad language and acknowledge that you do not have to treat reports like that as a real report. Ultimately it is up to the admin whether or not to action the report if it just has abuse/language issues in it.

    Your answer is perfectly valid animoo although you could and should warn the person about their report.

    I mean yea, I personally will message the victim and ask if they want to actually report them to try again following server rules in regards to language if they want it taken seriously. There's no perfect answer and we care more about your intention behind your answers than anything else.

    You're welcome, also want to quickly say that my suggestion for 5 isn't actually strictly correct and i was still using dated training from ages ago. Apologies for that.

    Denied / Closed

    Sorry Animoo, you've been denied this time around.

    It must be noted however that you need to step up your behavior and activity. You have been at times warned and reported for crowbarring people randomly and annoyingly and you're activity recently hasn't been too impressive.

    All saying this we do hope you stick around and apply next time. Cheers.
