Steam Name: Obi-Juan Kenobi Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:67789940 Steam Community: https://steamcommunity.com/id/JuanWayToTheTop Age: 17 Time Played: 2 Weeks, 3 Day, 23 Hours, 13 Minutes, 11 Seconds Date of first joining server: JUL 05, 2017 General Questions: Question 1: What drove you to apply to be a trial admin? I have decided to apply for Admin to help out the current staff and members and give back to the wonderful community and its inclusive and friendly players and give them the same treatment and help that has been given to myself and many other members. Question 2: What assets would you bring to the admin team if you were to be accepted? If I were accepted, I would aim to bring my friendliness and enthusiasm to players (not to mention the bad puns), as well as the ability to (in my personal opinion) deal with people in a mature and professional manner Question 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? Throughout the week, I would be around for 4 or so hours on Friday Evenings, and probably around 4 - 5 hours on both Saturday and Sunday throughout the day. When it comes to weekends, it will generally change from week to week but when I am available, I would be around for 1 - 2 hours each night. Question 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. I have had previous experience as one of the long-time admins on a previous TTT server, around three or four years ago (known as PinkyPenguinTraits) for around one to two years. I have also been a temporary admin on the server quite a few times and have re learnt the functioning of ULX and the RDM Manager and know most of the different server rules and policies from this experience (but I know there is still stuff I can learn and improve on) Question 5: Have you received any punishment from our admin team besides the inevitable slays for RDM? Give as much detail as you can I have never received any major punishment. Question 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? Personally, there are two beneficial traits an admin has: - Firstly, and possibly most importantly, it would be being a nice, friendly and talkative person who can share a laugh with others but also deal with things in a serious matter whilst also not acting like a complete killjoy to everyone you are with. - Secondly, being able to balance commitments both on the server and in real life tasks as to not negatively impact either side of one's objectives / aspirations. Question 7: The current Staff Members of Arcadia are: Owner: RainbowGauntlet and MitsuNeko Developer: Yanz CM’s : Ailuros, Newman and Xylo Admins: AJ, Cheeky, Gary, Harribo, Heptic, Logic, Rybie, Scorpina, Tanix, Thungo Situational Acts: Question 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? - For the mic-spammers, a temporary gag would be in order as a result of the severity of the situation. Seeing as they are reading the motd, they wouldn't require further direction to it. The mic spammer would also be gagged and given direction towards the !motd. After a round or two, these players would be ungagged and given a warning about their actions and what could result if they continue. If the behaviour continues, the gag length would increase if they continue to break the rules. - For "Nucking", I would kick him immediately advising him to change his name. If he returns, he would be kicked again until changing his name. For "Myself", I would firstly ask him to change his name as it causes confusion. If he doesn't, at the end of the round, he would be kicked asking him to change his name. If they continue to rejoin without changing their name, after the 3rd time, I would ban them for a day for their mingey behaviour. Question 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? Firstly, as each case RDM case would be looked at individually, some may be co-incidental or in some cases the player may have been attacked or reports would be cancelled. If there is still enough RDM’s to ban them for Mass RDM, I would kindly ask the fellow staff member to quickly hold off on the ban whilst we, or both of us, check for any evidence of ghosting or metagaming through the checking of logs, the !friends command and by conducting meta-tests. If this is inconclusive, the mass RDM ban or the slays would proceed. They would then be placed on the watchlist for possible metagaming and the appropriate bans placed on the banlist. If they were evidently metagaming, they would be banned for a month if it was their first offence. Question 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 deal with this by firstly reminding the player that they are using an exploited spot and teleport them away from the position. If they ignore this and persist with using the exploited spot (another 2 or 3 instances), I would ban them for anywhere between 1 days and permanently, depending on the severity of the exploit and the number of instances they have been banned for exploiting before, as relevant. This would be determined by information in the watchlist. Question 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. - For the shoutbox user, the first course of action would be to delete the messages and warn them through a private conversation or make a general (but not user specific) statement in the shoutbox. If they continue again, they would eventually be temporarily banned from the shoutbox. - For the person posting in the respected applications, their comments would be deleted and they would be warned about the severity of their actions in a private conversation. If they persists, after another one or two warnings, I would temporarily ban them from the forums. I would also seek to speak to the applicant and see if the comments were detrimental to them in any way. - For the person spamming new threads, any irrelevant threads would be deleted and I would kindly ask them to cease their spamming. If they are necromancing threads, I would lock the threads or delete the comments. Ideally, they would stop after multiple warnings but if they continue for an extended period of time, a temporary ban would suffice to stop the spam for a period of time. Question 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. In this case, I would let the victim know that I am not going to go through with their report and if they wanted action taken, they would have to create a new and much more civilised report with less derogatory and offensive reasons or language. I would let them know this and warn them that the use of that language is against the server rules. If it was a legitimate RDM and no new report was made, I would quick talk with the reported player via admin respond telling them that they would have been slain for RDM if a more acceptable report was made. Question 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 resolve this by firstly dealing the victim and the reported player situation. On viewing of the death scene and any appropriate shot logs, I would be able to determine whether the victim was ARDM’d. If they were RDM’d, I would remind the reported player that RDM is not allowed and in future, if they did kill a player with no evidence and they would be slain. If the detective killed the victim without giving them time to ID the body and/or explain the situation, the detective would also be slain if a valid report was made. However, if the victim did leave bodies un-ID'd for an extended period of time, then the detective's kill would be legitimate and no slay would occur.
