Joined Date: Not Sure.
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.




Edited/Added Parts:

A player comes on and starts an argument with another player, using profanity in the process. What is your immediate reaction? My immediate reaction would be to mute both of the player arguing, then ask them one at at time their reason of arguing and how it started, i would also remind them that this is a PG server and doesn't tolerate Swearing and tell them to refer to /rules, if they decide to continue arguing even after the reminder i would re-mute them and pass it onto a higher rank for discussing on ban and other.

What would your immediate reaction be if someone was advertising another MC/Discord Server? My instant reaction would be to mute then the tell them that this amazing server does not support advertising other MC/Discord servers, Refer to /rules for further reminding on what is allow and what isn't and if they continue to advertise then i will mute them again and then pass this onto a higher rank for discussion on a ban because i don't trust my self and don't want to do the wrong thing.

If a player trashes a staff member in main chat, how would you react as a helper? My first move would be to mute them, i would then discuss to them that rudeness and bullying is not tolerated on this server, refer to /rules to notify them of all the rules in the server and what they can't do, if they decide to continue trashing a staff or anyone on the server i would mute them again and tell a higher rank for discussion on 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? My first action would be to mute the person who started the drama and then try and clam down the chat by using very firm PG words, i would then discuss with the creator of the drama what happened to make them start the fight with another town/nation, and if there was anyway to fix the situation and make it calm, like if i was able to help them. If they aren't being reasonable I would refer them to /rules and notify a higher rank, while still trying to calmly control the chat.

If a player joins and starts to spam "This server is trash, join my server (IP)." How would you react as a helper? I would react my instantly muting them and then referring them to /rules, telling them that advertising, cursing and spamming is forbidden on this server, if they continue to do so i will ban for a short time and report the incident with a higher rank.

I hope these are okay if you need any more scenario examples please ask and I will type how I would defuse them, Thank you :D

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."
and
"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

Hello @DaSaltyLemon! Thanks for applying! I have discussed with the staff team, and ask you to please add more detail in the situation portion of this application. As well as the final questions to give us a better understanding of your staffing techniques and your reactions to certain situations. Thanks!
