    Steam Name: Rainbow


    Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:43397103

    Steam Community: http://steamcommunity.com/id/FaDeRainbow/

    Age: 20

    Time Played: 1 Week 3 Days
    [​IMG]

    Date of first joining server: Oct 08, 2017

    Compulsory Questions: (1-2 Sentences Required)

    1. What drove you to apply to be a trial admin?

    Like to think I'm good mates with a lot of the community and would love to do my fair share to help out wherever I can.

    2. What assets would you bring to the admin team if you were to be accepted?

    Friendly and like to think I would be very approachable for not only newbies but also already firmly established members of the community if an issue was to arise, happy to help out whenever and wherever I am needed and willing to learn and adapt on the go to ensure I'm doing the best I have to offer. Virtually always accessible one way or another if I'm desperately needed through Discord or Teamspeak.


    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?

    Mostly play evening/late at night and how long I play really depends how many people are on the server when I'm around, sometimes the server is populated really late into the night and sometimes it'll be empty by midnight. Unlikely to change over the midterm but unforeseeable events may change matters in due time.

    4. Have you had any past experience as a moderator/administrator?

    Moderated on ST3, administrated on the later revived SydTTT. (both of these server's went down, didn't leave or get demoted.) Super admin'd on AsturiaTTT, (resigned from this server as I felt I had lost my love for the game mode at the time.) Moderated for VHS-7 (murder server, again server went down.) And various other administrative roles on the appropriate teamspeak and discord servers assosciated with those servers.

    5. Have you received any punishment from our admin team besides the inevitable slays for RDM? Give as much detail as you can.

    No punishment yet, and not planning on any.

    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?

    In my opinion the single greatest quality for not only an administrator of Arcadia, but any person with a responsibility to work towards something is determination, being able to make it work even when everything is working against them through nothing but hard work and sheer will. And the only way I could really strive towards this goal is to keep trying and improve bit by bit.

    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?

    First things first I would gag the one spamming his mic and the one intentionally going out of his way to mention all disallowed conversation pieces, message them and request they consider reading the motd again and stop mic spamming. Then I would message the one with the name "Nucking Figger" requesting he change his name and if he doesn't comply in a pretty short time frame kick with the reason "Change name and come back" or something similar. Next I would message "Myself" and request he change his name to avoid confusion amongst players on the server calling koses and hsuses etc. Again if he doesn't comply in a round or two kick with the same reason. Ungag the 2 mic spammers after a round or two and if they continue gag them for the rest of the map and again refer them to the motd.

    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?

    Double check if the 2 new players are friends on steam, and message the other admin privately and request we meta test them in the coming round or two. If we get solid evidence that foul play is at hand ban both for a month (given there is no previous ban) and if no hard proof of them meta gaming is established continue with the slay/ban for rdm then report the ban on the ban list if applicable and report the two players on the watch list for potential meta gaming.


    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?

    Message them privately requesting they stop exploiting the map, if its something they can easily get out of them self wait a second and see if they make any attempt to get out of the restricted area, if they make no attempt to move or are unable to, teleport them back into an appropriate part of the map and ensure they don't go back there. If they do continue to keep going back there after consistent attempts to prevent them from doing so, ban them for exploiting for an amount of time appropriate to how severe the exploit was that they were abusing and whether or not they are on the ban list for exploits, update the ban list as required.

    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 shout box 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.

    First I would delete the inappropriate links on the shout box and remind the person that nsfw content is to be kept out of the shout box, if it continues ban them from the shout box for a while and allow them to reflect on their actions. For the person harassing the respected applicant, first I would delete the comments and posts and alert that player that what they are doing is incredibly unjust on the respected applicant, if they continued to post hostile comments after multiple warnings, would temporarily ban them from the forums, I would then message the player that was getting harassed and ensure that they are okay. And for the third person I would message them requesting they stop, delete all threads/comments on threads with no incentive or meaning behind them. If they continue to spam assorted threads and posts on threads after a couple of warnings, temporarily ban them from the forums. Attempt to get in contact with a community manager or higher up and let them know whats going on if they didn't already know and figure out where to go from there.

    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.

    First and foremost I would respond to the victim and refer them to the motd and alert them that such language is unacceptable. I would check the logs and if the victim was in fact RDM'd I would ask him to make a new report using more appropriate language if they still wished punishment to be placed upon the RDMer. If the victim does not make another appropriate response I would privately message the RDMer and remind him that RDM is against server rules and point them in the direction of the motd.

    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.

    First thing I would do is check death scene and see whether or not the reported player was clearly shooting the wall or was shooting close enough to the victim that it could be considered t-baiting. If the reported player was very clearly shooting away from all players no punishment would be placed and I would message the victim alerting him that the reported player was not intentionally shooting close to him, I would also message the reported player and just ask him to be careful where he shoots and to make sure it is very clearly away from all players. As there is no report made against the detective there would be no slay made against him, but I would message him and make sure he gave the victim ample opportunity to identify his assailant and explain what happened with the reported player, and if it was not the case alert the detective that he had RDM'd the victim and to make sure his kills in future are for the right reasons.

    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 Rainbow, 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.

    Sorry Rainy, I think your a nice dude and is well liked on the server.
    But I hardly ever see you on.
    Looking at your activity on the server recently it confirms that you are not very active.
    If you were more active I would be happy to +1.

    -1. I think you're a great person but you've lacked in hours lately (past 3-4 weeks) and I dont think adding an inactive admin to the team will be helpful at all. If you up your hours by the next admin apps, I'll gladly +1 you.

    I don't think you're active enough currently, it's not a secret that we're short staffed at the moment and I don't think this will fix it.

    Secondly I would recommend being more active in community, I know you're reasonable active in teamspeak but that's typically not in public channels and I know I've had very few and far between interactions with you.

    I must say you have such a well worded application Rainbow it sounds as if you've Administrated on this server before. I actually have nothing to say about it.
    And although you could possibly extend your length of time you remain on the server once your on, I don't see a massive issue with your activity. You explained that that 1 week of no activity on the GameTracker is due to you being on a holiday, which is totally fine in my eyes. And not trying to be the bearer of controversy, you still somehow manage to make your activity still is higher then that of current admins regardless of your 1 week break. Just keep up the good work!
    +1 from me :)

    -1 I don't see you on that often which wouldn't be a useful trait for an admin
