Introduction: For a start, I would just like to say that I have previously been staff on this server twice, I used to be a Helper on the server which lasted for around 2 weeks but then I also got Moderator on another occasion which I managed to staff before being demoted. I would also like to state that the situation I had with a few staff members when I was staff has been resolved if you haven't checked out the comment I posted please check it out here: https://universemc.us/threads/staff.6033/#post-34080 I'd also like to state that it may seem like I'm rushing to apply too soon, but I can assure you I'm ready. I spent over 4 months going over making myself a better person for what I did and it won't happen again. I have also been active on the server for numerous hours for the past couple of days. Thanks. 1) Simple Information • Minecraft Username: Acceptation • Previous Minecraft Usernames (if applicable): I do have previous Minecraft names, however, I have used none of them on this server before, if you'd like to take a look at them though, they can be found here: https://namemc.com/profile/Acceptation.4 • What's your timezone?: EU (GMT) • Age: I am currently 16 years of age. • Are you staff on any other servers?: Nope • 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: Acceptation#8205 • Do you have the ability to record Minecraft videos?: Yes, I do. • Do you have a donator rank on any of our game modes?: I have a donor rank on all of the game modes apart from the Cannon server. 2) Elaborate 2) Where are you most active on the Universe Server?: I wouldn't say I'm active on one server, I like switching between all different game modes which I believe is a good thing as I get to help a variety of people. 3) How much time do you have to contribute to the role?: Monday - 5 hours Tuesday - 4 hours Wednesday - 6 hours Thursday - 5 hours Friday - 7 hours Saturday - 8 hours Sunday - 5 hours 4) Have you ever been banned or punished on any server? If so, please include details (if applicable): I have been punished (perm banned) on the Mars realm before, I had been perm banned for insiding in mars which wasn't intentional and it resulted in me being demoted as well, from this I have learned my lesson as it has been over 4 months and I promise it will never happen again. 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?: Well firstly I would tell them why they have been muted in a calm and professional order because if I didn't I could trigger them towards worse behavior, if they continue to spam me then I would hand out a warning, if they still continuously spam then it could lead to a mute extension or a possible ban, depending how bad he has been spamming me. 6) Tell us about a time you made a mistake within the last year? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?: Where do I start, my behavior from this server, when I got demoted, was one of the worst things I've ever done in my life. I had got demoted and I reacted poorly and started harassing other users, since this event (4 months ago) I have used this time wisely to mature myself and become a better person overall. 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): AmnestyUHC - I was a Trial Moderator on AmnestyUHC I had gotten promoted around a year ago and the server was great, I had got to host some of my own games and I got to learn all new commands on how to ban hackers, warn them etc, I had got to learn new ability's that I never would of thought that I would have ever been able to do, I also got to boost my confidence levels during that time as I got to meet and create new friendships which improved my leadership levels. McKits - McKits is one of the definite recent ones of my staff experiences, I had resigned from Co-Owner just today and I honestly didn't find it a pleasant experience and I didn't really get to learn anything as I had already learned most of my things from previous experience, also I didn't have access to basically anything, I wasn't able to touch the console and wasn't really given permission to do anything among the server, I'm not trying to say it was a bad server it was just not the type for me (this server hasn't been released fully yet) <Server Name> - I was accepted into the <Server Name> team a while ago and it was an amazing experience and I would love to work there again but, not for now, basically, I decided to resign because I found the job very simple, also the community was a very toxic place and it was very hard to concentrate between that server and school so I resigned to focus on school. However, this won't happen on here because school exams are over and the community is way less toxic. GalaticMc - I have very little memory with GalacticMc I believe I was a Helper on that server but then I went inactive and was demoted? As said I have very little memory, I had applied for the server around 2 years ago and I haven't heard from the server or anyone until I was looking into old screenshots today, I had a very fun experience on that server as it was a very small server at the time and 2 years ago I had enjoyed small servers as it was very peaceful and respectful place (not saying that big servers can do that) Some Small Servers - Ages ago I had applied for some reddit UHC and some small servers but I didn't really do much with them, I usually went along my days because I didn't really know how special a staff member was and how they have to be active, I began to fade away from the servers and probably had gotten demoted or the servers just shut down, I don't really know how most of them ended as I didn't really cooperate with them. UniverseMc - I used to be staff on here twice, one was a Helper and the other time I managed to gain the Moderator role, during my time on this server I spent a lot of time and commitment working on the server until I made a mistake and sadly got demoted for it, although I did this mistake on here I am grateful that I am still allowed to apply for staff and that I can get the chance to redeem myself, I really enjoyed working on this server and I would love to have the chance to work on here again. With all this experience I hope that it can show you that I can manage being a staff member on the server, also if you would like proof of these experiences, I will gladly do so. 8) If you have any, what hobbies or activities are you involved in outside of Minecraft?: Outside of school, I do a range of activities which involve teamwork and communication skills. This helps me be more concentrated when it comes to talking to people and it also makes it so I can get the job done faster as I'm not that shy to speak up. I also go to after-school classes for extra studying. 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 ask the 2 players for the hackers username and potentially what server they are hacking on, I would then quickly contact a higher up staff member telling them that there is a hacker online providing the correct information about the hacker, secondly I would jump on TeamSpeak if not already on and then join the players channel, if there is a player blasting out music I would warn them and if they don't stop I will kick them from the channel leading to a potential ban. 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?: Firstly I would tell all the players that are spamming to calm down and give them a warning, I would then provide the correct proof of the player breaking one of the server rules, and if they continue to argue about it being false or continue to spam I would then give them a final warning, anything after that would lead to a temporary mute. 11) Anything else we should know?: Yes. Why should I become a staff member? ↠ Creative ↠ I would like to think I am a very creative, in fact, I believe everyone in the world is creative in there own way and I feel that I could bring my towards this server in a positive way that could potentially benefit the server, being creative is really important in my opinion because it overall just improves everything especially if you are in a team simply because there is better teamwork and team bonding when it comes to creativity which is why I think mine could improve the team, I am great at coming up suggestions or improvements for the server. ↠ Mature ↠ I am a very mature person in my opinion, especially when it comes to doing something very important such as this role, I believe my maturity is good because it really helps avoid unnecessary conflict that may happen when taking apart the role and helping other players. If I was to get this Helper position then I would make sure that I take responsibility for all of my actions even if they are mistakes that I could have did. I know the mute appeal I did wasn't very mature of me but I regret that very badly and I can assure you that I am not that type of person who likes to deny everything, I am simply doing this to help other players. ↠ Knowledgeable ↠ After playing this server in-game for over a year (maybe 2), I believe that I am ready to become a Helperon your server and that I know everything inside and out now, I am fully aware of the rules and the consequences that come to them even if they are broke and I know how the game modes work on the server, I feel this will be good because if I am knowledgeable it means that I will be able to help players out more easily and quicker instead of having to try to find the answer to it. ↠ Experienced ↠ Like I wrote on the question below I am a very experienced player when it comes to helping out a server, I have plenty of experience of how things run and what is not acceptable to be doing in any staff team, I know how to control my emotional state and not to let anything personal get to me, I also know how to manage my stress which could really affect other peoples moderation which is good. ↠ Non-Biased ↠ I am not a biased person at all, even if they do happen to be my friends or not. I take every player equally because that's what I feel they should be, for an example if a player has a bunch of punishments on the server I am still going to be treating them the same as a person who has no punishments at all. This also comes to punishments, I am always going to be punishing people even if they are my friends if they break a rule because I am a person who is strongly against people who are biased because I find it really unfair to the player(s) ↠ Professional ↠ Professionalism is a very big factor in my opinion when it comes to applying for a staff position or even being a staff member at all and I feel like I am professional enough to become a staff member on here, I know that professionalism can benefit the reputation of the server, but it can even decrease the reputation of the server, if you are not being up to standard which I would try to do my 110% best to stay up to standard at all times. ↠ Communicative ↠ I believe I have good communication skills, not only verbal communication but written communication skills as well. I am able to deliver and receive information at a quick standard which I feel can be really beneficial towards this server, along with it being quickly I can also do it accurately so I don't make lots of mistakes when communicating at all. I am a very understandable person when it comes to listening to people and I always try to do my best at a job. Communication is really important to me because it is used to give staff or players information that could be really important to them to help them understand the game or needing help to create a ban appeal and I believe I can present that in a positive way. ↠ Focused ↠ I am a very focused person, I am able to do all types of tasks and activities at a good speed without getting any distractions at all meaning that I will be able to produce a higher quality of work for this server. Me being able to stay focused means that I will be able to get my work done quicker which could help a lot of people on this server. I like to stay focused on one task at a time because I feel that taking one step at a time is less stressful for my mind and being less stressful makes me a much happier person. ↠ Organized ↠ Being organised is one of my key features, it helps me save so much time instead of having to look for things and it also means that I will be able to spend more time on more important things because of that, being an organised person really helps me because it does cause me to panic less often in case I have forgotten to do something important or lost something in a big pile of work which will never happen because I am very tidy and organized. ↠ Responsible ↠ Responsibility is a really important thing for me not only for applying for something but for life in general, I am a really responsible and reliable person and it really does help me build strong, long-lasting relationships with other people. I am able to take all of the responsibility of my actions even if they are bad and I feel that is a good thing to have on you as a person, being a responsible person really does help me when it comes to other people trusting me and that's what I want people to do on the server, I want players to trust me. It is also good because it means that I would never try to put all my actions onto someone else, I take full credit for everything I would do and I never try to blame someone on something they never did, another thing is that it really does help me become a leader that people will be able to count on at all times. I always think before I act and I am always able to think about positive outcomes instead of negative ones ↠ Good listener ↠ Listening is really important to me and it always will be, if I wasn't a good listener then it would be extremely easy for me to affect my communication with people and messages could easily be misunderstood which is good for me. My listening skills would really help this server because I am always down to listening to other players to see what issue or question they may need to be answered which could really build up my trust on this server so players would come to me more often about certain situations. ↠ Personable ↠ I love to share happiness with other people so I am definitely a personal person and I hope I can share it on the server with or without the position, just means with the position I will be able to share it with more people. I like to be personable because not only does it affect me in a positive way but it can also make others around me feel happy. I am a person who really likes to show empathy to one another which I feel is great because it can sometimes make a person feel good. ↠ Fast ↠ I would consider myself a fast person, I have always grown up to be the type of person who has to get tasks done as fast as I could, I don't like to slop around and leave stuff till the very last moment which links into my organization skills. I am able to get all different types of tasks and activities done at an exceptional speed and I am able to do it in the most efficient way there is. I am also able to be fast while being accurate which leads onto my next point. ↠ Accurate ↠ As I said on my last point I am a very fast person, along with that I am very accurate while working at a fast pace, I don't get overwhelmed if I have a bunch of work to do, I simply do it and move onto something new to get the best outcome. I am able to type fast and get the majority of my words spelled correctly and I am able to work at an efficient speed and time to get things done without making any mistakes within it. ↠ Helpful ↠ I really like being helpful, I feel like it was something I was meant to do when I get older and I really enjoy it when it comes to doing stuff around helping. I am always up for any questions and all and I'm always up to improve someone's gameplay by just getting on to do something simple as banning a hacker. I don't help people just for the benefit of myself, I do it for others to because sometimes it can promote or motivate other players to have positive behaviors and potentially help other players out. ↠ Easy Going ↠ I am a very relaxed and tolerant person I would like to say, I always keep my behavior to an acceptable standard that does not go out of line to affect other people in there life's. I am a person who does not lose their temper at all and I always try my best to follow the server rules at all times. I also am easy going when it comes to helping players, I am always a friendly and easy person to talk to and players should have no problem coming to me about any issues at all. ↠ Genuine ↠ Genuine is one of my main strengths I would say, I don't try to seek attention at all because that is really immature in all honesty. I am not a person who focused most of there time trying to be like by a person because I like who I am and I really don't mind what people may say about me as a person because I am comfortable in my own skin and I feel everyone should be like that. I'm a very consistent person who always likes to stick to stuff that may work, for an example if I am good at doing something I like to stick with that because it could be really beneficial for the future. I honestly think that me being Genuine could really make the server a positive difference. ↠ Literate ↠ I am very good at my literacy, last year I ended up getting a B in my English GCSE and I feel that having good literacy because staff members need to be able to understand what a player might be asking you to do on the server, if you don't have that good of literacy it means that you could potentially misunderstand some of the information that you could be receiving. I have the ability to read and write long types of texts without getting anything to mess up on anything really. Thank you for reading my application, if you have any questions or any suggestions for me, please comment them. Thanks.
