Administrator Application

Requirements
You must:

  • Be at least a second-level staff member
  • Know more-advanced tShock commands
  • Have at least 4 weeks experience as a Moderator (Collectively)
  • Have the game on Steam
  • Have completed at least 3 training sessions

[Q1] Why would you like to be an Admin?
I want to be an Admin because I know that if I continue to progress through ranking that I will be able to help the community and all the players substantially. Players from all over the world will hopefully enjoy the way I will help and they too will progress. I aim to create a very positive environment for everyone to be creative and joyous. I love it when others are happy and they know they can come to be included and feel at home. Whenever I get on to the server I strive to keep everyone happy and problem free. As an Admin I will be able to help players furthermore in their endeavors and complications. I understand that these skills could help me and other players in careers that we may or may not attend to. Overall I believe that everyone should benefit in a positive way from all the good things I currently do and what I will continue to do as an Admin.

[Q2] At present, what would you rate your effectiveness as a staff member out of 10? (Include your activity, appropriate bans, warnings, positive responses and other related things into account)
I would rank myself at an 8 of effectiveness. I am on the server almost every day trying to improve the community and help others succeed. I have done few but all appropriate bans. I gave these people chances to stop what they were doing and be better people. Some accepted my advice, yet others did not. I try to help everyone when they have questions and do it as productive as possible. The players online enjoy it when there’s someone looking out for them. I intend to be that someone who is always seeing over problems and other things that may occur. I know that I am very effective as a Moderator and will persist to do these things as an Admin.

[Q3] If another staff member was trolling/annoying someone or a group of people in such a way that could be deemed inappropriate, what would you do?
I would take a few screenshots of the scene and warn the member of his wrong doings. If the thing the member was doing was very serious (Although all inappropriate things should be counted as serious) I would report the member hoping to push away all of the negativity that the staff member brought up. If the staff member was doing something not as serious I would still warn them never to do it again. If they resumed whatever they were doing I would also report the player for his actions.

[Q4] If you was asked to watch over the server for 5 days, with almost all permissions granted, how would you do it?
I would make sure that I watched over the server normally and acting like nothing had been changed. Although if a moment came up where the extra permissions were necessary I would use them to my full extent to try and fix the error or complication. I would not use any commands abusively (I don’t now but I will continue not to abuse) and only use them when needed.

[Q5] What would you do in the following situation (Include detail as to each point you’d address)? :
2 members and 2 Moderators are arguing. The members claim that both Moderators have been annoying them for reasons which cannot be proven and such have reason to believe that they have done nothing wrong but are still being punished for it. One of the Moderators is telling one of the members to ‘shut up’ and is muting them mid-argument. The other is spewing casual responses such as ‘yea’ and ‘I agree’. Meanwhile the other member is trying to get his point across to no avail. The Moderators claim that these members have been breaking some rules. Including: Using CAPS on one of his messages, swearing at them and griefing. The Moderators say they haven’t yet checked if they’d griefed but some people were reporting them to have.

I would first ask everyone to calm down and I will help them find a solution. I would say to the member putting out the casual responses that he was filling up the chatbox and could be counted as spam. I would also tell the first Moderator that even though he was a higher rank than the members doesn’t mean he can disrespect them or mute them for no apparent reason. I would unmute the member and go through them one by one attempting to find out what happened and consider what I should do. I would trace through the Moderators where they got the information of the grief and find out if what they say is true. I would next ask the Moderators if they have any proof of the swearing and that it is ok for a single word to be in caps while they talk just not more than once. For example Hey guys just LOOK at this thing right here. (Next message) Yeah I told you it would be cool. If there was proof of excessive swearing at them I would warn the members about disrespect and excessive swearing. In the end I would tell the Moderators to only use commands only if absolutely necessary and never abuse. If the arguments got really bad and the Moderators showed no stopping in abuse of commands I would take screenshots and post them on a thread to report the Moderators of command abuse.

[Q6] Write a short paragraph explaining your experience at Dark Gaming and what you have learnt since you first joined.
Dark Gaming has given me the chance to assist other people in times of need while still having fun with all of my friends and the community. When I joined I was in a sense “naked and afraid” I had no idea who anyone was except for a few select people. I knew if I was going to meet anyone I needed to talk to others and maybe try to fix their problems if they needed it. Although there was little I could do I did everything I could. For a while I helped people with building and it turned out I loved building! I aided people with house building and other whimsical things like the Santa Shelter. I loved seeing people amazed at what I built for them! Eventually I was convinced to apply for Moderator. I realized it would be lots of responsibility and work but I wanted the position so bad just so I could do what I loved and still be in an environment where I could help other people to a further extent. I know as I advance through these positions that I will get better and better as a person but still assisting the people of the community.

Spiral does his job to the full extent. He has a great understanding of commands and I have taught him W.E commands seeing as I was the one who trained him. This person connects well with people, he knows when to be happy and joking, but also when a problem arises he knows when to be forceful and enforce the rules. From what I have seen he is a person of efficiency and works well in his position. Not only is he a great friend of many other staff members he is also a friend to everyone. We need staff members like these. I would highly recommend this person for the Administrator position. +1
