background info: still respected on forums cause i was a previous respected before 'the purge'. came back recently and im ready to become an active member of the community again (and possibly apply for admin later next year ) Steam Name: chis Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:62371957 Steam Community: https://steamcommunity.com/id/succzuccme/ Age: 16 Time Played: 6d22h39m Date of first joining server: July(?) 2017 Rank on the Server: Elite Questions: (1-2 Sentences Required) Answers here should be concise and to the point but if you need to go overboard to get your point across this is fine. Honesty is the best policy here. 1. What does being a Respected mean for you? To me, being respected is not just having a special rank or having extra privileges. It is being known by the community around you, and being trusted by them to use those privileges appropriately and to assist the players of higher ranking whenever needed. 2. Have you received any punishment besides the inevitable slays for RDM or any warnings from staff members? Nope 3. Is there any reason that someone may doubt your trust or maturity? Sometimes my sense of humour can get out of hand and become a bit inappropriate, but other than that, no. 4. In your opinion what is the most important/best quality of the Arcadia Community? How would you look to maintain or improve this as a respected? To me the most important/best quality of Arcadia is the fact that everybody, no matter what age, ethnicity etc. is always willing to make a friend and have a banter with others. I will look to maintain and improve this as a respected by having the same uplifting and fun attitude towards all players, and be as interactive with everyone as possible. Situational Acts: (Paragraph Required) While we never require any respected's to perform any administrative function, there are still opportunities for minor yet vital roles in helping out where needed and any respected ought to be able to act in these situations as they feel is needed. You may ask a Community Manager for advice on these situations if you feel you need it but you must answer in your own words. 1. There are 2 players having an argument about a potential RDM. The ‘reported player’ lies in his/her report and the ‘victim’ then forgives this. The ‘reported player’ then admits to lying and harasses the ‘victim’ for being gullible and they rightfully feel cheated. The ‘victim’ doesn’t know what to do and is growing increasingly upset and frustrated, the admin online doesn’t seem to have noticed the problem. What could you do to help them out? Firstly, i would PM the admin about the situation to ensure he is aware of it. I would then comfort the frustrated player by letting him know an admin is on the way to sort out the problem between the two ASAP. As for the 'reported player' i would talk as much as i possibly can to him about RDM rules etc. before the admin takes control of the situation. 2. There is one admin online and you are the only other ranking player on the server above regular. You are in dead chat and the admin in question is still ‘alive’ in game. Upon seeing this a group of 3 begin to act out. One starts spamming Nazi symbols into the chat, a second starts to scream into their microphone and a third uses chat to bad mouth the server/admin comparing them to Hitler and so on. What would you do? I would first use the PM system to notify the admin of everything the 3 players are doing and what rules they are breaking. In the mean time, i would do as much i as i possibly can to defuse the situation - Verbally tell them to stop breaking the rules (mic spamming, nazi references etc.) and let them know that if they continue they could face punishments such as a ban or even a permanent ban if they continue. If this does not quiten them down and other players are getting offended by their comments, I would call a votekick on the players in attempts to stop them while the admin is still alive. 3. You are one of the last few alive and no admin is currently ‘alive’. The detective tries to call a “Livecheck or KOS”. You inform them as a knowledgeable member that the rules do not allow this but the detective does not listen and begins to KOS and shoot those that did not respond. What would you do here? I would assume that the dead admin is aware of the situation at hand, and would continue to try to inform them that what they are doing is against the rules. I would not kill them however, as this still counts as RDM since they are a detective. Declaration: I, chis, Acknowledge the requirements and prerequisites that are needed to become Respected. I will not abuse my powers or behave in such a way to compromise the reputation of this community or its members. I will strive to make this community a better place for every member. I understand that I am not expected to administrate the server in any way and that my respected rank is only a representation of being respected by the Admin Team and the Community. I understand that any disrespectful acts I make as a Respected may leave me with a warning and/or a strike against my rank (up to 3) and depending on the severity, instant demotion.
