If so, please include details (if applicable): Yes, awhile back I was banned from SaicoPvP, this was because I was using alts to drop kits/gapples and killing them to farm factions XP. I really regret doing this and have learned to follow rules on the servers that I now play. 5) SCENARIO: Suppose it's your first week of being a Helper and you mute a well-known player. They're arguing and spamming you, constantly telling you to unmute them. What would you do?: I would tell the player that he would have to wait out his mute and if he wanted to appeal the mute I would tell him how to do to so. I would give the player a verbal warning for spamming me via DM, if he continued I would punish the player accordingly. If the player was being disrespectful via DM I would also warn the player, if he carried on breaking all of these rules I would ask a higher staff member to temp ban him/her for the necessary time for the rule that x player had broke. 6) Tell us about a time you made a mistake within the last year? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?: I have made mistakes in the past, Not reading rules used to be a big issue for me. I used to just deal with things when they hit me. I have now learned that this is not a good way of doing things as they come back and hit you right in the face. 7) Do you have any previous server moderation or leadership experience? If not, please explain how you could do as staff even without having any previous experiences. (Minimum 200+ words): Introduction - Over my 4 years of playing Minecraft I have been staff on many different servers, some of the servers barely hit 10 members on its most active time, however this did not make me any less able/willing to do my job and help the people playing it to ensure that they have the best and most enjoyable time. Current day - I am currently enjoying being a moderator on VenomPvP, I got helper around 2 weeks ago on there and recently have been promoted to a moderator which means that I cannot play with my faction on there. Since this has happened we have moved over to Mars realm where I would like to further expand my ability to help players. ( being staff on venom will not dampen my ability to help/provide support here on UniverseMC as I am active on both servers weather I am staff or not. Difficult Situations - As a moderator on Venom, I have been able to learn how to deal with certain situations such as: Multiple messages, Hackers, and people trying to bend the rules. When dealing with multiple things at once I feel that this is one of my strong points. If I am not currently able to help a player and the player's issue was not urgent I would simply ask the player to hold on while I deal with something else. I am also not afraid to ask another staff member for help if I was dealing with to many things at once. Over my time being staff I have been exposed to multiple factions/players being toxic to me, I would like to note that I can deal with this and will not let this get to me. I act in a very professional manner and would like to continue to help players and will not be less inclined to help them based on their opinions of me. Skills I have - I am currently Screenshare certified on Venom so I have the skillset to do so on here. Polite and professional An active player willing to help anybody that needs it. 8) If you have any, what hobbies or activities are you involved in outside of Minecraft?: I enjoy working with computers and would like to do this as a profession when I am older, I am currently studying ICT in college and would possibly like to become an IT technician or get into Cyber Security in the future. 9) SCENARIO: You're on a busy game mode as a helper, questions are flying at you rapidly, you can just about keep up. You're getting messaged by 2 different players both asking you to get them a junior moderator for a hacker, someone then messages you on discord telling you that there is someone blasting music in their channel. What do you do?: Firstly, I would deal with the hacker because of the urgency of this issue, I would message an online moderator (if any were online and free to help) if there was not a moderator or higher online I would tp to x player and see if I could catch the alledged hacker breaking any rules, if I were not able to see anything that was ban-worthy I would ask the player to submit any proof he may have, or contact an online moderator or higher on Discord. To deal with all of the oncoming questions I would scroll up and reply to each question and apologize for the wait. (I am able to do this as I use badlion so I can scroll up without any issues) While answering these questions I would hop in the discord call and see what was happening and if needed I would deal with the situation that was occurring. 10) SCENARIO: You've made an 'incorrect punishment' towards a player and there are 4 players arguing and spamming you saying that it was false. How would you handle it?: I would apologize for my lack of judgment/error and would ask the players to stop spamming me. I would make it clear to both parties that this was completely my fault and would ask that if there's anything I can do to just message me. I would also make it clear that this would not happen again. 11) Anything else we should know?: About me - I am a 17-year-old male that is from the United Kingdom, I enjoy playing video games such as Rust, Minecraft and GTA 5. I have a desire to work with computers when I grow up and have just finished my first year of college where I am currently expanding my knowledge in the world of IT.
