    Steam Name: BoSS The Castle

    SteamID: STEAM_0:0:17852974

    Age: 18

    • How long have you been a part of our community(either server)?:
    Altogether,, I have been a part of our community for about 8 years (with some breaks in between). I have both helped to manage servers, and run some myself.

    • What does being a staff member entail?:
    Why do you believe that you deserve to be granted a trial-staff position?: I believe that I should be granted the opportunity to become a staff member because I have proven my dedication and commitment to our community over the past several years. I have learned a tremendous amount and am eager to gain more responsibilities and demonstrate my leadership skills in a new role.

    • Do you have any previous staffing experience(s) (List community and, if possible, rank)?:
    I ran and maintained a server box for a number of years. I have experience in running communities and servers with Minecraft, Gmod, HL2rp, HL2DM. I also have limited experience with Tf2 and Csgo. A few years ago I took advantage of an opportunity to help start and run an extremely popular Minecraft server with a youtuber, Creeperincoming. I also started up a prison and then an HCF server. I owned and developed Insane Roleplay, Extreme Roleplay and was apart of the Deathrow community for years. I worked my way up the ranks and eventually became a head administrator. Some of my first Gmod experiences involved following Dezz to Gmod. I have also had several talented people on my box who ran and directed Gmod servers who collaborated with me and helped me learn the ropes.
    I also have relevant staff experience within the Chaos Crew community; and have served as a head administrator for Kist for a number of months helping to create and develop the community by performing a similar role to my experience with Deathrow.

    • Do you understand the basic commands of our server that we use? If so please list how to do the following:

    a). Kicking a player: (sm_kick-/kick) Kicking a player is naturally one of our last resorts when dealing with a player who is not complying with our rules and regulations. Before taking this measure it is critical to try using good communication to try to resolve the issue with the player before removing them from our community.

    b). Banning a player(for one day): (sm_ban/ban target 1440 reason) Banning a player is another tool to be used only after all other methods of communication have failed. A ban is only to be used when it is absolutely necessary to remove the offender immediately and not for other reasons.
    c). Creating a prop: (db_create id or model path)

    d). Freezing a prop: (/freezeit-sm_freezeit)

    e). Saving a prop: (/Save-sm_save)

    f). Connecting a prop to a door: (sm_linkpropdoor doorid)

    g). How to look up any SourceMod command: (sm_help 1-X or sm_searchcmd)

    • Explain how you would handle the following situations:

    a. A player says they suspect another player of hacking:
    In this situation I would first try to gather as much information as possible from the player to support their claims. I would do my best to calm the player down and ask them to provide possible evidence (screenshots, video, logs, etc.) and I would reassure the player that our administrators take these allegations very seriously, so that they don’t feel the need to publicly air their grievances within the community. I would then proceed to spectate that player and would make any other staff who may happen to be online at the time aware of the situation.

    b. A cop is rdming other players:
    I would attempt to understand the situation so that I could appropriately interact with the cop. I would try to determine whether or not I could easily resolve the situation without any drama and report the incident to another staff member. If, however, I was unable to accomplish this, I would alert another other staff member online. I would then bring the cop to a safe location, freezing them. At that point I would attempt to communicate and negotiate prior to employing a temporary ban, only if absolutely necessary, and only long enough for me to contact another administrator and hand the situation over to them.

    c. A rebel is rdming players under ten hours:
    I would immediately remove the rdmer from the situation, apologizing to the under 10. I would then freeze the player in question and bring them to a safe location to attempt a negotiation. If that approach proved to be unsuccessful, I would release the player while doing my absolute best to describe the severity of the situation. I would also alert an available staff member for guidance and back up. If all methods of negotiation and de-escalation failed, I would have to issue a temporary ban to prevent the player from driving away new members from our community.

    d. A new player connects whom has never played lite rp before:
    First, I would welcome them to our community and ask if they needed/wanted help. If they responded positively, I would give them a tutorial of rp and the unique mods that we have here at cold community. I would also introduce them to our gang system that gives rebels the benefit of a promoting system, similar to combine, and detail all of the unique perks that allow players and their gang members to make more money and have exciting advantages. I would then offer a few of the ins and outs of our customized jobs-for example, robber and some of the new additions including vault timers and more sanitation trash pickup, and where to sell on each map. More detail

    e. A player says they have lost their cop due to a mess up:
    Before taking any action, I would ask them to point me towards their accepted cop application or some other form of proof that they were cop. I would then make any other staff member online aware of the situation. I would not feel the need to make an issue out of it until I was provided with some form of evidence from the player or an administrator. I would also refer them to the forums and our application requirements while encouraging them to reapply. Finally, I would make note of the situation and follow up with another staff member.

    • Have you read and understood the community rules?:
    Yes, I have read and understand the community rules.

    • Do you understand that it will be your job to enforce these rules?:
    I look forward to upholding our community standards by enforcing these rules and providing a safe, level playing field for all gamers. I hope to be able to accurately enforce our rules and expectations. In addition, I look forward to being able to put my experience and effort into places I notice to be struggling.

    • Do you understand that you as a staff member are still to abide by these rules along with others pertaining to staff?:
    I understand that I must follow each rule for every player, admin, motd, etc. I also understand that the motd is not a legal document. I also must follow the instruction of other administrators. I understand that as an enforcer in our community it is critical to follow and respect each and every rule pertaining not only to admins, but to cops and rebels as well. I look forward to using common sense and a level head to give each person and situation my undivided attention and patience.

    • Do you understand that misuse of your rank will result in your immediate removal as well as other possible consequences such as a ban?:
    I understand that in accepting responsibility for this position that I am committing to uphold certain values and maintain certain rules. I understand that as an administrator that there will be situations that I encounter that I am not 100% confident in the rules; which is why I am looking forward to collaborating with other administrators to learn and grow within this position. I also understand that as a staff member I must be able to take advice, criticism and input from both players and staff and make appropriate adjustments. I also understand that this position is a privilege, and that misuse of my rank will result in my removal.
  • We've had some issues with castle in the past, however from his month or so time of being back on the server I haven't heard anything bad pertaining to him and from the responses here it seems that a lot of other people like him too.

    His application is really well done and there's been no negative feedback from what I've seen so I'll give him a +1.

    EDIT: Tho, I do wanna know why you've made another account just to post on your app...
  • I've only ever had one real problem with Castle as co admin on other servers, and that's just because he was a lttle bit power hungry. Initiative isn't always a bad thing, but if you've changed that into something a bit positive like I heard you've been doing, then it's a yes from me.

    Thanks man. I appreciate your vote of confidence. I understand where you are coming from when you say I was power hungry before. I'm hoping that the last month or so I've been back has shown that in the few years i was gone i have matured to some extent.
