    Thread Title: Derp - Admin App

    Steam Name: Derp

    Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:121299570

    Steam Community:

    Age: 16

    Time Played: 3w 5d 5h 41m

    Date of first joining server: . Gametracker states that i joined September 27 2017 but i know i joined August 2016

    Compulsory Questions: (1-2 Sentences Required)

    1. What drove you to apply to be a trial admin?
    The amount of enjoy-ability that i have been able to get out of playing on the server and i want to return my time back to the community

    2. What assets would you bring to the admin team if you were to be accepted?
    I would try to give as much fun as possible for those playing but keep it level with sensibility and not take it over the top. Bringing activity is another thing that i would try to bring
    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?
    Quite often i spend a minimum of 2 hours on the server at a time and at most 6 hours. I would hope that this would not change on the long term but if it were to it would only go down by a small amount

    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.
    5. Have you received any punishment from our admin team besides the inevitable slays for RDM? Give as much detail as you can.
    No punishments received unless you count silly gags that are meant as jokes.

    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?
    The single best quality for an admin would be to care about the troubles that go on on the server
    7. List the current Staff Members of Arcadia Gaming.

    Situational Acts: (Paragraph Required)

    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 start off by gagging the person "playing" with their mic and warn them not to do it again or i would gag them for longer.Then move to the person who is reading out the motd and warning them to not do it and if they continue then go to a gag and ungag them at the end of the round and if it continues then gag for longer and eventually turn it into a pgag. i would move to the people with the offensive name and the confusing name by asking them to change their names to something more appropriate and if they refuse to i would kick them and after three kicks i would ban them for an hour. Finally i would keep an eye on the four causing these problems to make sure that there is no meta-gaming going on.

    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?

    First of all i would look to see if the players are friends or not and state to the other admin that i think that the two players are meta-gaming. To confirm whether they are meta-gaming i would run some tests before i go to banning. If indeed they are meta-gaming then i would ban them both for four weeks and put them on the ban-list so other staff members would know about what these two have done. However if they are not meta-gaming the slays would still be added like normal if the reports were not cancelled and if there were enough then result in a regular mass RDM ban.

    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 ask them to stop and get down from where-ever they are and if they did not i would tp them down and if they continue to do it after the tp i would slay them and if it came to it i would ban them for how bad the exploit is.

    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 start off by deleting all the posts that were not suitable for the places that they were put in and messaging the shoutbox spammer stating that the links are not allowed anywhere on the server and depending on how bad the spam is possibly a ban. The person harassing the respected applicant would be told by me that they can only post one message stating whether it is a +1, neutral or a -1 and if it is a -1 a reason behind it.
    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 message the person stating that i would not take the report unless they made a new one that was reasonable and if they did not cancel the report i would put an autoslay against them for a false report. With the RDMer i would tell them not to do it again and that the only reason as of right then they were not getting slain is because the victim made a false report and that if the person made a proper report and the evidence pointed towards it being RDM then they would get a slay.

    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 check the death scene to check that all the given information is correct and if the victim did it intentionally then i would let the victim know that the person was shooting at the wall and not directly at them resulting in nothing being done to the other person other than giving a warning stating that shooting the walls can lead to disruption and cause RDM. However if the information given in the report was false then the "wall shooter" would be slain for their actions.


    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 Derp, Acknowledge the requirements and prerequisites that are needed to become Trial Admin in the community. I recognize 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.

    +1 - Very good answers! I wish you good luck in your application. Only thing I would suggest is that for mic spam the person is clearly warned beforehand instead of gagging them immediately. Besides that, nice job!

    +1 super active and application shows a good understanding of the goings on with adminging. My only real concern is you seem a bit passive with regards to helping out staff so my advice would be to not be shy if you get the opportunity. Of course it just might be my impression that’s wrong and if so then you can continue doing what you are doing.

    However those ‘silly gags’ are not a joke, you have a serious problem that absolutely must be dealt with :thonk:

    Nice colours too
