    Hello, I am ItzArchie. In my last application, I posted an application former Administrator IzaFour had denied my application for the reason 'Lying about being staff elsewhere'. Which is 100% true. I had copied some staff experiences from the web which was extremely wrong of me to do which led me to be denied in my latest application. I am really sorry about this, so I'd like to declare this application is now 100% lie free (and my whole Minecraft future career) and will provide proof for previous staffing experiences.


    【=========================】


    1) Simple Information

    • Minecraft Username: ItzArchie

    • Previous Minecraft Usernames (if applicable): Click HERE

    • What's your timezone?: BST (British Standard Time)

    • Age: I am 14 years of age

    • Are you staff on any other servers?: No, I do not staff elsewhere.

    • Do you have access to Discord and a working microphone? If you have discord, please list your full discord name and tag. Example; Example#1234: I do have Discord and have a fully working microphone. My Discord is ItzArchie#7471.

    • Do you have the ability to record Minecraft videos?: I have the ability to record Minecraft videos. You can find clips HERE

    • Do you have a donator rank on any of our game modes?: I do yes, I currently have Flare on Jupiter and Champion on Neptune.


    2) Elaborate


    2) Where are you most active on the Universe Server?:

    I am mostly active on Neptune but try to spread myself around the whole network.

    3) How much time do you have to contribute to the role?:

    Weekdays:
    Monday - 5 Hours (15:50 - 20:00)
    Tuesday - 5 Hours (15:50 - 20:00)
    Wednesday - 2 Hours (18:00 - 20:00)
    Thursday - 5 Hours (15:50 - 20:00)
    Friday - 5 Hours (15:50 - 20:00)

    Weekends:
    Saturday - 13 Hours
    Sunday - 11 Hours



    4) Have you ever been banned or punished on any server? If so, please include details (if applicable):

    I have yes, I have been banned on Skycade for malicious hacking but appealed and got unbanned. I have also been warned a few times but only for minor instances.

    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 ask the player to message me on discord and I can give him the proof for what I muted him for and tell him he could buy and unmute on the store. If he claims it to be false I would then tell him if he thinks it was a false mute he could make a report on the forums. I would also explain to him even though he is a well-known player we cannot make any exceptions for them as we have to treat them like a normal player. I would make sure to gather all the evidence I would need to mute them before I would mute them.

    6) Tell us about a time you made a mistake within the last year? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?:

    So, April 19th (a month ago day with submitting) my staff application was denied for 'Lying about being staff elsewhere' which was 100% true, this led me to a denial. I have learned that lying about anything is extremely bad for your mental health and will never have to go through it again.

    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):

    SpaceRealms - Factions Network
    Rank - Helper to Sr. Moderator.
    Demoted or Resigned: Resigned - Server was closing down anyways
    Proof - https://gyazo.com/f7faa49899a0052ff809b0310b08b099
    2nd Proof - https://gyazo.com/bfa0afdcb3823ed7020a373045d6ce0b
    SpaceRealms was a Factions Network owned by OhDave. I was assigned to catching hackers, ban appeals and training new staff. I contributed quite a bit of time to SpaceRealms, 4 hours on weekdays & 7 hours on weekends. I was also given the role to make a successful eco for the OP Faction Planet, Mercury. I was staff here for six weeks and managed to get promoted to Sr. Mod within my second week being there


    ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬


    UniverseMC - Network, Factions, Skyblock & KitMap
    Rank - Helper
    Demoted or Resigned: Demoted - Lack of activity
    Proof - https://gyazo.com/0f8ef89599ecdd750f7f1364e5d535a4
    UniverseMC is a network owned by AnonymousOG. I was staff for about a month and a half until I was demoted for lack of activity. UniverseMC is a custom network with custom features and plugins. My role was to manage chat, player-reports and look for hackers. I contributed quite a bit of time to my role as Helper. I really enjoyed being Helper. I would request help on the servers slack group if anything was to crop up that I needed help with.




    8) If you have any, what hobbies or activities are you involved in outside of Minecraft?:

    I am currently involved in no hobbies outside of school or Minecraft.

    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 kindly ask the person in the channel to stop blasting music if they were using a bot I would remove the bot from the channel and tell the user to stop abusing the bots use and only use it for non-earrape songs. Secondly, I would record the hacker and send the proof to a higher staff member and I would then start answering questions from the players to the best of my ability I would make sure everyone is happy while I do my work on the server and help everyone to the best of my ability.

    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 ask them to stop spamming as I would give them my discord so we can talk about the issue I would then say sorry for giving the player a false punishment and I would contact a higher staff member to tell them what happened and get the punishment removed because it is better to own up to your own mistakes and tell the admins yourself then them finding a report on the forums.

    11) Anything else we should know?:


    You should accept me as a staff member on UniverseMC because I am kind, mature, helpful and knowledgeable. I have been moderating servers for the past two years now and have picked up a lot of useful commands for both admin and non-admin roles. Another thing I have picked is general guidelines to follow when moderating social media.

    I love to play video games like; Fortnite, Minecraft, Terraria, Rocket League and Star Wars Battlefront II. I also watch a lot of YouTube content creators ranging from Fortnite to Minecraft players.


    Thank you for reading!

    Glowing regards,

    ~ Archie

    Hi, Archie!
    It is a good thing you owning for your own mistakes and realize what you did wrong.
    I like and dislike some of your points in your application. However, I'm not the staff manager here. Under I gave you some suggestions I highly recommend you to consider.
    • As Penguin suggested, I suggest you add more detail to your scenario questions too.
    • However, you should add more detail on your past experiences, since you do not have a lot of experience, you should focus on putting as much necessary detail as possible, to fill the requirement.
    • You got some misspelling in your application, make sure to read through it before sending.
    • This can be a silly suggestion, but try not to start almost all your sentences in your scenario questions with "I would". Play around, such as "Firstly, Secondly, Thirdly, Finally, To conclude".
    • Subjectively: I would love to know the staff member who is supposed to help the community. Somewhere in your application, I suggest you write something about you, tell us who you are, what you like to do to catch our interest.

    I hope you consider some of my suggestions, best of luck.

    Regards YunusEmre

    Hey @Archie, after looking over your application, I have come up with a few suggestions:

    ↠ Become globally active across all server and platforms such as Discord

    ↠ Add more detail to most of your answers

    ↠ Fix a couple minor grammatical errors scattered throughout your application

    ↠ Update your schedule to show estimated times of when you can play. This gives us a better understanding of when you can be online

    ↠ Remove your third staffing experience from Question #7, as the server never released so it does not really count as being staff


    Thats all! Good luck on your application

    I am 99.99% sure I have corrected all these and will work on global activity.

    Thank you.

    Hello @Archie after reviewing your application i've decided upon some things that could possibly help with your application,
    • Increase activity on all platforms, including both in game and on social platforms
    • Add more detail for your scenario questions
    Otherwise everything else seems fine!

    Thank you feedback.

    I am really trying to improve my global activity. If you read Q3 I have gave times I will be online.

    Also, what detail do you recommend I add to scenario questions? I'm a bit stuck as I thought I had added enough detail.

    Hey archie, I am just your average player on UniverseMC. I just stumbled apon your application. To me it seems very well put together. I think the experience part of your application was a +1 from me there. So much detail in one question really made me gasp almost. Goodluck and maybe I will be seeing you soon with a new rank.
