Have you had any past punishments?: No.
Do you have any prior experience as a staff member? No, This is my first time applying for a staff member.
If applicable, why did you leave the prior position? didn't have a prior Position.
Lastly, do you have any friends as staff? If so list their names: No friends that are Staff.

If a player joins and starts to spam "This server is trash, join my server (IP)." How would you react as a helper? My reaction would be "Please don't spam or advertise other servers, if you do not stop it may result in a ban."
If a player starts to create drama with another town or nation and starts to involve everyone in main chat, how would you deal with the situation? I would deal with the situation by saying "Everyone please stop arguing, this argument is going no where and will to go any further, for I am ending it now and you will all apologize to the others, Thank you."
If a player trashes a staff member in main chat, how would you react as a helper? I would tell them " Please do not do that to anyone even if they do it to you, there is still no need to be rude to someone, now apologize, Thank you."
Suddenly, the server crashes and it comes online with no player data saved. How would you go about reporting this? I would first let the owner know by saying "The server crashed and it says No Player Data Saved.
A player griefs a town and it is reported to you, how would you deal with this situation? I will notify the owner and then try to resolve it. I will try to resolve it by banning the griefer and returning the player what was theirs.

What do you feel makes you qualified to become a helper? I Enjoy helping people, When i help someone and make the happy it makes me feel happy.
Why should we accept your application over others? I don't think you should accept mine over others, just to consider accepting mine when ever you feel like it (or declining).
Why do you wish to be a Helper on SurvivalState? I really love the amazing community and i just want to be able to help people for, where with a lower rank i feel like i get ignored, and can't help as much people.
Lastly, are you limited as to how many hours you are able to use your computer? If so, how many hours are you allowed to play every week? I am only Restricted to Computer use from school, weekends and holidays i would be on almost everyday for many hours. Per week including school i would say maybe about 20 hours maybe more maybe less.

P.s. I played this server a lot before the reset, i have changed my name since then though, my old username was John0257.

Hello SaltyLemon! Firstly, thank you for applying for Helper on SurvivalState! A few things I noticed off the bat is: You state that you would contact the owner first (I'm not readily available all the time, how would you go about reporting it to someone else?), if a player was advertising, you wouldn't intervene (If a player is advertising, a mute is the first step of action.). Other than those responses, the application was great. Other staff members will now be allowed to respond to your application. Thank you for applying :)!

Thank you for your staff application SaltyLemon!
Now, with my thoughts on your application, I've come to the following conclusions:

- You're very diplomatic in your staffing approach, deigning to be more of a mediator than a adjudicator, which is a plus!
- Extremely polite and respectful, another plus!
- And you've been on the server for awhile

That being said, there are a few negatives. There are some situations that diplomacy and mediation cannot solve the problem, so I'd like to hear what you'd do in such scenarios. Decisive action is a key element of being a staff member, and it's not that I think you don't have that aspect, but I would like to know that you do. So feel free to respond to this mock scenario "A player comes on and starts an argument with another player, using profanity in the process. What is your immediate reaction?"

Lastly, I took heavy notice to a couple of the things you said:
"I Enjoy helping people, When i help someone and make the happy it makes me feel happy."
"I really love the amazing community and i just want to be able to help people for, where with a lower rank i feel like i get ignored, and can't help as much people."

Those statements resonated with me quite greatly, as I felt the same way prior to being granted staffhood. That kind of devotion to helping people is a great asset that, in my opinion, weighs heavy in your favor in regards to approval.
Pending your response to the above scenario, I'll make my decision for my support of your application. ;)

I agree with strip. Your personality is great and some of the responses are excellent like why you like helping people, why you will be good as helper, however I do agree some of them do need a little work due to a staff member needeing to act fast and sharp to diffuse a difficult situatio. For instance with an argument try to be more direct and bold. Finally your a very active player and a great addition in the community which is a big plus. Wish you good luck and make sure to keep improving on those answers
