    Server Information

    Have you managed servers previously?
    Yes

    If Yes, which ones?
    When i use to play minecraft about 3 years ago I was a trial mod on Mineplex, Had my own CS:S server, also Owner of ImmortalsTFnetwork (My server)

    Are you familiar with admin commands?
    Yes

    On which servers do you usually play?
    Blackwonder UK || Randomizer
    Blackwonder || Jailbreak
    Blackwonder || Deathrun #1
    Blackwonder || VSH
    Blackwonder || x3 Orange x100 and x10 UK

    Application Questions

    Why do you want to become an admin?
    I frequently tell players who break the rules not to do so and I often explain the rules of the server in question to them but ultimately I am left powerless to do nothing but report or votemute them (depending on the rule broken) and on top of that the votemute rarely goes through so I feel like the position of Moderator would allow me to deal with these rulebreakers a lot easier, on top of that when the report on the website is created, is created rarely see much being done about it and since a lot of the players who do break the rules come once or twice and don't come back again it means that pursuing a further forum report with evidence against the player seems pointless and rather than protecting the server from the rulebreaker ends up wasting time as it is unlikely they will return anyways.

    Negativity aside I have been administrator/co-owner/developer for many (and I mean many) Garry's Mod/CS:S servers across the years, if you take an interest in which ones you may ask me and I shall tell you and also used to run my own Garry's Mod community called RenegadeGaming, set with a forum and teamspeak server so I'd say I know what is necessary to administrate and run an online community. And although Garry's Mod administration is not quite the same as Team Fortress 2 administration I think it would be in line to say that the fundamentals are shared across the games.

    On top of that I am familiar with the majority of SourceMod commands and am also familiar with the rules.

    I believe I am an understanding individual and I work well in a team. On top of this I am frequently described by my friends as someone who is very independent and can solve problems presented to him rarely needing the help of others. I have also gotten to know and gotten friendly with many players on Jailbreak Server and know the playerbase very well there and would say I'm fairly liked.

    So all in all I think I should be Moderator due to my vast experience in gaming communities over the years and my ability to administrate and deal with rulebreakers.

    Thank you for reading my application and I hope you found it to be a good one.

    All The Best , Kyle

    How would you go about punishing a hacker, spammer, simple rulebreaker, etc?
    In-Game Voice/Text Chat punishments


    Micspamming- I Would warn the person that's micspamming and if they were to continue I would mute them for 1440 minutes

    Foreign Language on Mic- I will warn them and tell them if they want to speak their own language they can do so in the Text chat If They continue I will mute them for 60 Minutes

    Spamming In chat- I would give them a nice warning and if they were to continue i'd apply a 180 minute Gag..

    Toxicness/Insulting or disrespect- Would give the person a warning and a 30 minute mute/gag, If they continue to behave in that way I would apply a 120 minute mute/gag instead.

    Racism- I will give the person a warning however if they continue to be racistic, I will apply a 720-1440 minute mute/gag.

    Advertising Hacks (Only if the hack actually exists)- Perm ban, No question about it. Even as a joke.

    General Punishments

    Hacking- I will record a demo of the Person hacking then I'd ban them and Would attach evidence to it.

    Exploiting- If there's a bug in the map and Person exploits it I will slay the person if he does it again I will kick him with a message saying "No Exploiting" and if he rejoins and Exploits again, They will receive a 60 minute ban

    Inappropriate sprays- I ban the person that uses the Spray - Permanently

    Inappropriate signs/Decals- I will ask the person to remove the Following cosmetics that are inappropriate If they refuse will issue a 120 Minute ban.

    Punishments for gamemodes ( such as deathrun, jailbreak etc.)

    Faking a freerun- I will Instantly issue a 60 minute ban.

    Spawncamping- If a person spawn camps i will slay them If they do it again I will kick them with a message saying "No Spawncamping" if they rejoin and do it again, I will issue a 60 minute ban.

    Freekilling- If they freekill the first time I will slay them same as the second time , If they do it the third time I will ban them for 1440 minutes.

    Dw/lr denial- if they deny lr or dw I will ask them to Grant the lr or do the dw, If they do not comply I will ban them for a day.

    Armoury camping- If they armoury camp I will give them a warning and tell them to get out of the armoury if they do not comply I will ban them on 120 minutes

    Punishment times (for me ) : 60>120>240>480>1440>2160>2880>20160>43200>Permanent

    Please give any other information you might think is useful for us to know.
    I'm somewhat patient, and almost never angry.

    your profile lists you as 18 not 19? anyway, your app is okay, though you've listed that you play jailbreak but havent listed any jailbreak punishments other than freekilling where there is rather a lot to not only jailbreak but other game modes also. i dont think i've seen you in game so cant comment on that but i do think the app needs work and for you to be around longer so that more of us know you. i'll go ~NEUTRAL for now

    "Spam" to unlock the admin application feature doesn't look "patient". There is also A LOT of Jailbreak punishments you are missing. Non-existent from the forum and I'm not sure if you are in our discord. I also don't know you at all but I frequent the Jailbreak EU server.

    and this:
    What if a troller just says "GET SNACKS, GET LUNCHBOX.COM"? Are you just going to insta-ban that person, "no questions asked"? Your tone sounds like you get irritated very fast and we need cool-headed people. Also this:
    doesn't help your case.

    Even though you have past experience, you seem power-hungry. -Support until further notice of improvement.

    Regards,
    Overkill.

    Honestly, I don't remember us talking anywhere, not on steam or discord, and I don't have you added anywhere...
    You have very low dicord and forum activity, even after that post spam (13 posts on the forums and 13 messages on discord at the time of writing this post!).
    Adding to what overkill said about the punishments, you didn't list ANY punishment for VSH in spite of listing Versus Saxton Hale as one of your most played gamemodes.
    While you edited a few things that have been pointed out already, you haven't changed a lot of inportant ones like the very small punishment section.
    Why did you skip from 2 days to 2 weeks? Also, why did you skip from 2 weeks to 300 days??
    I'll have to give a -support.

    EDIT: Looking at apps on other communities you lied about your age in the past, and it could still be happening judging by your spelling mistakes...
    EDIT2: Is this your mineplex profile?

    I don't know you. You're not on my friends list and I have no knowledge of talking with you. Please remove me from listed admins.

    No, it's not. I do not live in US in the first place, and my account was created in 2012, and last time i was online was 3 years ago. And on what other communities have i applied as age of 18 or lower?

    I only asked out of curiosity because I found a mineplex account that shared similarities with your steam profile.
    I did not said that you applied as age of 18 or lower, I said that you lied about your age before and it was even pointed out:

    (i understand my comment has no use to this, but this are the things i have seen by surfing through the information provided and picking out the most crucial information)

    You tried to use another account to give yourself a +1?
    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/399393878643310595/399395116013322240/unknown.png
    This proves two things.
    1. You are a liar, (which is shown everywhere in the application provided by Melectrome's link)
    2. You are extremely hungry for power, even using apparently information of "other successful applications" from other servers.

    I honestly don't get why you tried to lie about everything about yourself, the fact that you are apparently an admin of Blackwonder.tf which is literally this community and the fact that you lied about your age? You don't learn from your mistakes and you constantly make up newer stories everyday, from being 26 years old and having a job to being 18 years old and not having a job?

    Another one that I found while using the provided information.
    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/399393878643310595/399396774386860033/unknown.png
    This also tells me that when you were applying for admin, you literally had no experience of the forums and the functions that it provides. The same time when you were trying to convince others that everything they are saying is false (yet providing little to no evidence).

    One last thing, the fact that you stopped using the account that you used to apply with 2 months after it got declined made it obvious that you had no determination to be an admin. You just wanted power. You continued to use the other account that +1 though, in my opinion it seems like you're just trying to avoid a negative reputation and rebuild yourself in that community.
