    • Do you have a donator rank on any of our game modes?:

    2) Elaborate


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

    I am most active on Jupiter, I play there allot.

    However, I am familiar with Mars and play Neptune quite allot.


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


    Monday- 3-4 hrs


    Tuesday- 3-4 hrs


    Wednesday- 3-4 hrs


    Thursday 3-4 hrs


    Friday 3-4 hrs


    Saturday 5-6 hrs


    Sunday 5-6 hrs


    This will be my schedule for the week. (During the summer, I will be playing much more.)


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

    I have had a 17-day ban for illegal homes (The day it and the rules of the new faction were implemented). I have kept up with the rules now, so I fully understand what the rules are.


    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 them to calm down, why I muted the player, and ask them if they want evidence to why I muted the player. I would do this to, at first, try to be logical with the player, and try calm them down, by telling them that the situation isn't the end of the world and that there are ways to get unmuted. If they still don't stop, I would ask him to appeal for an unmute or to buy one. I would tell him that there's not much you can do, but if you make an appeal on why you should be unmuted, and it's logical, apologetic and sincere, and not just rant/rage (Ex. "Stupid helper abuse. Unmute now), that they would have a likely chance of being unmuted if they write a genuine appeal.
    If the issue continues, I would remind them that there is not much I can do and that as staff I have obligations and rules to follow. If spam and toxicity continue, I would warn him that punishment of higher severity could be issued if he does not stop, and I would move on to the next player that needs help if he stops and warn/mute the player 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?:

    At one point, I was very toxic, and would usually start spamming chat and getting very mad whenever someone killed me or was very rude or toxic. This would usually lead to mutes, and to staff not being very happy, as well as my mood suffering, which would sometimes linger with me throughout the day. Eventually, I learned to calm down, and instead when angry either just stay silent, or log off.


    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):

    Currently, I do have moderation experience on District HCF. Before the server shut down, it got around 10 players a day, and I was helper, with perms similar to the helper here. After moderating on District HCF, I have previous experiences in being a helper, which will help me in the long run. I can also be a good figure for players to follow by being positive and mature. I have had to enact punishments on several players, and in doing so, I learned when I needed to do it. I was also a faction leader, and it taught me less about factions than it did about reputation. Reputation is not the most important thing, but if you're toxic or do nothing, the community's opinion of you will sour. And when your reputation sours, you'll likely be assaulted in chat, or may even receive a demotion due to how bad your reputation may be. These experiences can help me as a staff.


    FierceFactions- Helper

    Though the server has died, it has taught me what it's like to chat with staff, and work discussions. It has also taught me how to manage discord and has made me very active on discord, which is a necessity


    Revolution- Faction Leader

    Being a leader of a faction has taught me how to avoid arguments, and use the opinions of others. It has helped me in management skills and has also helped me to treat other players with much more respect


    NATO- Faction Leader

    NATO (My current faction) is bigger than the Revolution was. It has taught me how to make friendships and alliances with other people more effectively.

    These have all helped me socialize, and taught me how to be a leader, and a good role model figure. I feel that these will help me immensely In a staff position and that these experiences will continue to serve me as I staff on the server.



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


    I am involved it school and martial arts, as well as orchestra. I also have experience in debating and public speaking. I find these activities to be very fun, and help me in aspects of maturity, communication, and skills necessary to life and social skills.


    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 on their channel. What do you do?:

    I would try to take down these tasks one at a time. I would warn the person that if they did not stop, that they would be muted temporarily in the discord, and of the blasting of music continues, I would kick, then mute the person blasting music into the channel, while asking for a junior moderator to come online. I would also ask more staff to come online and attempt to get them to help as well, so there is less pressure put onto me and the rest of the team (By asking staff members to come online of no one is there). I would ask the staff online to help to deal with the questions, while I would deal with the discord problems, and ask any junior moderator or above to deal with the hacker issue while presenting any evidence I had of the hacker. After I was done with the discord situation, I would come and help out the other staff members, and continue solving issues on the server. You should always remember that you are not alone, there is a whole team to help!
    If the staff does not come online, I'll deal with the players' questions while managing the discord, and patiently wait for the Jr. mod (Or a staff member of a higher rank), to come online, then direct them to the players who need help. I would continue staffing on the server while monitoring the situation to make sure nothing becomes out of hand. While I was waiting for the Jr. Mod to come online, I would freeze and screeenshare the player after I've dealt with the issues to where it's all controllable. For awnsering questions I would ask the players to wait or DM me on discord to ask me questions, so I have time to deal with all other issues so I am not overwhelmed and to stall for time for other staff members to come on.



    10) SCENARIO: You've made an 'incorrect punishment' towards a player and 4 players are arguing and spamming you saying that it was false. How would you handle it?:


    I would first ask them to calm down, and tell them to help me with the situation and explain their shreds of evidence calmly (I would ask them to show me or tell me why it was false, whether pictures or videos, etc.). I would also show them my evidence and steps I took leading to the punishment (Like pictures, decisions, and opinions). I would lastly tell them to ask the player to appeal on forums, showing pieces of evidence of why it was false and why it was a false and incorrect ban/mute, or to buy an unban/mute from the UniverseMC store. If it does turn out to be a false mute, I or another staff member would unmute them, and apologize for the misconception. I would make sure that any mistakes made during the punishments are also fix.

    11) Anything else we should know?:

    I appreciate your time. Thank you for reading my staff application, and I hope you have a great day.

    I feel that I can help the community and staff team of UniverseMC with the skills that I have learned over the years, and my knowledge of ALL dimensions on the server. I could also be a role model, showing people to be not toxic, and much more friendly. Lastly, I feel that I can spread a positive and good attitude to other people I talk to and help on the server, particularly like Snookia, who always makes everyone happy. He is a huge role model for me, though I have known him only for a short time. I appreciate everything he and the whole staff team has done for the server.

    I feel I am different than other staff in my very friendly, but extroverted attitude. This would allow me to spread positivity, and possibly calm down players and change a bad environment, which would be nice for all other players on the server
    The staff application is identical to the last one, as I was turned down for toxicity and immaturity. I took a break from Minecraft and feel that I am much better in my attitude and my behavior. I feel that I am now capable of a staff position, whereas before I would likely
    have been demoted quickly.

    Thank you!

    I would check for spelling mistakes and choose a new color format. Also add more detail overall to your application.

    Thanks,

    Hello Techno. I would recommend changing the overall color of your application as I find it particularly hard to read any of your answers due to the dark color used. Thanks

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

    What I really like about this application is that you got suggestions/criticism and you actually worked on it, majority of the people don't actually do that.

    For that reason I'm going to support you, you seem dedicated which I'm liking a lot.

    Hey Techno,

    I've got some suggestions:

    - Add more detail to Scenario questions

    - Be more active, I rarely see you ( Might be case of timezone )

    - Can you provide proof of Being Staff on FierceFactions I was the Manager there!

    - Faction's don't count as ''Staff experience''

    - You have Only 1 Server you have been staff on, ( I would love to see it if you don't mind <3 ok if you don't have proof )

    - There is over 30+ Spelling mistakes, i suggest using a Grammer checker, ( Grammarly )


    Pros

    - Semi-Active

    - Nice person

    - Kind and not toxic



    +0.5 Best of luck

    Kindly,

    GetGoodSkid

    Hello Skid!

    I will address these 1 by 1 as to calm any concerns.

    1. I will work on this on the morning, and make sure there are more details.

    2. I am active 4-5 hours a day, CST time, early in the day. I belive I am pretty active, it's likely timezones.

    3. Will add proof in the morning, I have screenshots on DM with tropical.

    4. The question asked for leadership experiences, so I gave some. I did not mean them as staff experience. Though they aren't server moderation or leadership, I believe they've helped me in leadership experience and as a person.

    5. Refer to Q. 3

    6. I will work on spelling/grammar mistakes in the morning. I was mostly brushing over them, I'll try my best to get most of them.

    Thank you for the helpful tips! I will be sure to use them as soon as possible.
    (ATM it's 12:00 AM CST. Gotta go to sleep.)

    Hello, Technopat!
    Suggestions:
    Fix some grammatical errors (I use Grammarly It is very useful for writing and free!)
    • Add a bit more detail about your leadership/staffing experiences

    Other than those this is a very nice organized application and gets to the point! You seem very kind, active and a great candidate!


    Kind Regards, DJ_GamingTv

    Um dude, Why have you lied about your Age? On your pfp it says 21 and your Age is 14, that's a bit sketchy

    When I made my forums, I had just joined uni. I didn't trust the server at the time, so I said I was 22. I am actually 14.
