    Mystic rank on mars!


    2) Elaborate

    2) Where are you most active on the Universe Server?
    - Factions, however I have just began to play skyblock so I am learning and enjoying that more

    3) How much time do you have to contribute to the role?:
    - I only have university 9-10am on Tuesday, all day Wednesday and 11-1 on Thursday and i work 9-5 on weekends so I'm available any other time.
    4) Have you ever been banned or punished on any server? If so, please include details (if applicable):
    No. When on servers I always try to be friendly and most of all have fun.
    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?:
    - Report to higher up staff so that they can let the player know what they have done wrong and to double check they have been muted appropriately.
    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 accidentally forgot to TNT fill our cannon fully on venom when playing with domino's and this caused the cannon to blow and Little_ was not impressed. So I apologised to the whole faction and explained that it was a mistake and spent the next few hours rebuilding and checking the cannon until it was fixed. From this I learnt to always double check things before putting them into action.
    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):
    - I do not have any other experience of being staff on servers however I am very kind and talkative person so can help people with issues and raise them to other staff when needed and keep players in calls calm to try and remove the toxicity from the server. In my job in real life I am a supervisor in a cafe and therefore have to manager around 5-10 members of staff during busy weekends. This means ensuring that all customers are happy, the floors are sweeped, tables are clean and shelves are stocked with food. I have had to deal with around 10-15 angry unhappy customers during my time working there and the first rule is to make sure that you always stay calm. I always reassure the customer and make sure that they know that I understand how they feel and that I would not be happy if I felt that way. I do my best to find an appropriate solution to the problem and then continue to apologise to the customer and tell them to have a good day. I have also previously been the manager and person to run the tills in a very busy sports shop in the UK and this also involved having a lot of leadership skills and confidence when directing people on how to use their time effectively. I will use these skills gained from working to ensure that as a staff member on Universe I am professional, make good use of my time and am most of all friendly and approachable.
    8) If you have any, what hobbies or activities are you involved in outside of Minecraft?:
    - I love watching competitive call of duty and often go to tournaments. I have been to two tournaments in the UK (London and Birmingham) and I got to meet some of my favourite players. I can honestly say they were the best weekends of my life. I also love the sport speedway (motorbike racing). I am a massive fan.
    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?:
    I ensure I reply to the players who messaged first and contact a jr mod and let them know that someone has been told about their situation and will help when they can. I will then go into the discord channel and ask the player with the music to either turn it down or move to another channel . If they do not turn the music down I will move the players who are not enjoying it to another channel so they can chill.
    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 get a senior member of staff to check the punishment and if they believe it is incorrect I will get all the players in a call, apologise for punishing incorrectly and tell them that I will try my best to not let this happen again.
    11) Anything else we should know?:
    I would love to become a member of the staff team and I am willing to work really hard to learn everything to the best of my ability.

    Wouldn't trust her with TnT filling cannons, or anything closely related. However, I see great potential in Emma as a staff member for UniverseMC

    I'd suggest adding a lot more overall detail to your application and becoming more globally active on all UniverseMC platforms. (Forums, Discord, All server platforms, and even twitter if applicable).

    Not saying Smadger would do this, but I feel as if you will get staff just on the reason that you are "Smadger's girlfriend" not a suggestion for your application, just something for people to think about as Smadger may be biased towards your application.

    Best Wishes,

    I would just like to say that I am very active on the server Discord always in calls and chat etc. I also only just joined the forums as I have never had anything to post before so I did not have an account.

    Ok so, your application. It doesn’t have a lot of detail and to be honest the layout is poor. I suggest you add more detail to your previous staff experiences. Even if you don’t have a lot of ingame staff experience, talk about real life. Conversely, I like your responses to the scenario questions; but I suggest that you add a tad more information to really bulk the application up.

    For now it’s going to be a
    -1 until you add more detail etc.

    Kindest Regards,


    - NoHub

    Thank you for the feedback however I do not feel necessary to talk about my own like in my application as I would like to keep that kind of thing private online for obvious security reasons. Hopefully that is understandable.

    Of course and I understand that. However, I still do recommend that you find a way to fill the 200 word minimum as currently you have 49 worlds.

    Hello! I would agree with NoHub 100%, this application is not very well written. I do understand you'd like to keep your personal details out of this but, small things like hobbies are not very revealing. Those questions are asked to help us to understand who you are as a person. Also as NoHub had said, you are not making some of the requirements for some of the questions. Also with the previous staff experiences you need more detail. Answer this in that question, why should we choose you over any other applicant. As someone with no previous server staffing experiences proves to us, the staff team you can be as good or better than anyone with and a substantial amount of experience. Please take into consideration what I had just said, applying this to your application would greatly improve your chances.

    Sincerely,

    Hi,

    Thank you for your comments. However, I do not agree that my whole personality and experience can be shown in a simple application. The best way to prove myself is to speak with people so that they get to know me. I believe I have a good if not great relationship with numerous staff members and I am definitely mature enough to take the role seriously.
    I believe no application can be judged properly until the person can prove themselves in the role. I have a great support network of current staff who can support me in my role if I ever need help and my friendliness to the community I believe will make me a great staff member on this server.

    What you just said was perfect, you have just given a good reason for why YOU would be a good staff member. You have just earned my respect with an amazing response. When I posted my comment I was looking forward to you having a reply just as you have done, you have professionally shown you can take criticism and that you are able to turn it around and reply with a strong comment.

    Sincerely,
