    Contact Information

    Your Age 19

    Location UK

    Your SteamID [U:1:136931483]

    Other Information

    Have you managed servers previously? No

    If Yes, which ones?

    Why do you want to become an admin? I find myself constantly needing to use my donator commands in order to stop rule breakers and people who are generally doing things that shouldn't be done but this does not extend to banning (most i can do is kick) and being able to do proper, full mic checks in game as well as longer gags and mutes than i currently can give.

    I feel that with my availability and amount of time I can be online it will put a lot of ease into many servers that sometimes dont have an admin available to go and help in. I am well known on the jailbreak servers and the vast majority of regulars trust me with my votes and greet me when I arrive.

    Are you familiar with admin commands? No

    Do you know any of our current staff members? Yes

    If Yes, please tell us their names.

    Please tell us when you usually play and are available. I generally play all day from maybe around 9:00AM GMT till maybe 12:00AM, when i get back to uni I will have around 20 hours a week when I will be unable to play due to lectures. However it is spread out across the week.

    At UNI I am not free from
    Monday: 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM then 6:30PM till 9:15PM
    Wednesday: 10AM - 1PM then 5:30PM - 8:15PM
    Friday: 11:00AM - 14:00 PM

    On what servers do you usually play? Jailbreak EU
    However I do have the other jailbreaks in my favourites and will use them when EU is full/empty.

    Please give any other information you might think is useful for us to know. I gained a 4 hour guard ban once for unknowingly doing a hunger games consecutively to it I have since however brushed myself up on the rules. Yet as said by Ben I did not react happily to it at the time. I am a donor so have become used to the level of fairness required when it comes to vote slays, mutes and gags also.

    To tell a bit about myself I'd say I'm someone who is fair yet willing to be strict if the circumstances arise. I'm mature acting for the most part when maturity is needed yet happy to allow myself to be a little immature to have some fun.

    How would you go about punishing a hacker/spammer/simple rulebreaker...etc.?

    Being overly rude/pointedly rude in chat/ghosting/ mic spam: A verbal/written warning in chat/onscreen for the first offence then depending on previous bans a first gag will be an hour, with the punishment doubling for each consecutive need for a gag. So 1, 2, 4 etc

    Un-wardening/going blu with no mic : They'll get a warning in chat to go back to red team. (If they un-wardened for good reason IE they need to fix their mic I'll allow it but will be making sure that it was a one-time thing.) If they do not then go to the red team I will team switch them and give them an hour mute so they do not attempt it again for a while and learn their lesson. Again punishment will double if it is done again.

    Mass free kill: Depending on the circumstances it will start with a week ban, for instance salty because they got muted or gagged, or did not know the rules, something like that. However if it's someone who has come into the server with no other reason than to free kill they will receive a permanent ban.

    Glitch abuse: For instance going blue with no verified mic/spawning with ammo. For going blu with no mic verification if they do have a mic I'll suggest they leave and rejoin to fix the issue, however if the person in question is someone who does it knowingly in order to get points from killing blus they will receive a four hour ban again doubling each time.

    Blu who constantly force baits/baits reds: They will first receive a warning and then will be vote slayed and from there it will be a 1 hour team ban which again doubles with each further infraction.

    Hacker/promoting hacks: Not such a problem on JB but hackers are instantly a perma ban and if someone is promoting hacks legitimately they also get a perma ban. However if it is someone who is doing it but trying to joke I feel a 2 week ban for the first offence will suffice but some may disagree with me on that. Obviously with hackers I'll make sure they are confirmed as hacking first and always be recording to capture evidence such as a demo.

    For a pornographic/ offensive spray: I will spray ban them for 2 hours for the first offence and then it will double with further infractions.

    For a small infraction: Such as delaying, disguising as a spy or using sticky traps. They will receive a slay. Stickies if continued after 4 slays will receive a team ban length of 4 hours. Disguising as a spy again if after 4 slays they do not stop they will receive again a 4 hour ban and these will again double in time for each infraction.

    For the application itself, it's horrible formatting, especially in the punishments section. Make things clear to us, it just looks messy. Also, no idea why you attatched your timetable. Giving us the times would be fine. Your grammar is awful. You are at university and don't know how to put capital letters at the beginning of a sentence? I can understand a few mistakes, but this is consistent.

    Also about your 4 hour team ban, yes you may have learned from it, but your instant reaction was to come to the forums and complain that it was unjustified even though it was explained to you clearly on the server.

    Pros:
    - Active on forums and servers.
    - Friendly and Mature.
    - Good knowledge of the rules, but could brush up a little bit.


    Cons:
    - Application is messy.
    - Not active on Discord.
    - Joined the forums 15 days ago.


    My only issues are is that your application is messy, you don't join us on Discord, and because you don't join us on Discord we don't know anything about you.

    Overall I will be Neutral for now, and I would like to see you edit your application so it looks appealing to read and talk to us on Discord.

    Grammar was never my strong point, I think I have cleaned it up as best I can though. Discord I am generally on it though just not on voice while at home from uni due to only having the one screen and my laptop needing all the internet it can get so I can play in in game. When I get back to Uni though this will not be an issue anymore.

    Pro's:
    - Active on the servers
    - Very charming and kind person
    - Records demos when an admin is absent and helps with Steam ID retrieval

    Con's:
    - Not in the Discord chat, so not contactable outside of Steam
    - Punctuation is a bit misplaced in the application
    - University could interfere with occasional peak times for the servers

    All in all, I think you should drop out of uni and pledge your allegiance to Benedevil or try and be more active on the discord group so the admins and others can get to know you a little better outside of the prison cells. Either option works fine tbh

    I'm gonna drop a lovely little
    +support.

    -Friendly.
    -Active.
    -Records demos and reports people the right way.
    -Knows the rules.

    -Only been 2 weeks on the forums.
    -Not on Discord.
    -Had a ban once.

    Overall, I'm gonna go with neutral.
    To be honest, the ban doesn't really count for me, as long as you learned from it, It's fine.
    Though, try going on Discord, I'm sure you will not regret it.
    And it's also easier to reach us there c:

    I've actually had it longer than I have had the forums, I just came home shortly after so dont use voice as much, I just post in #general and #request help. sometimes #bot if i want a song. discord just takes all my internet up at home so I try to keep off it unless i need help from an admin/not on a game. but yes I will take the advice to use voice more from now and especially when back at uni where i have no excuse.

    I feel the need to bring up the fact that you've listed me as a known admin even though the only times we have talked is briefly on the server and on Discord after you posted this application. I understand it's hard to know what counts as being "known" but a general thing to do here is ask the admin. On the other hand, the application is very good. You are available quite often and you have knowledge of the rules. The application also seems to have a nice amount of effort put into it. However, you have only been around for so long and as such it's hard to judge you properly. I'm going to go with neutral here and will edit this if I find any other points to add in the future.

    That's fair, I chose admins i'd generally played with a couple times and spoke to in server/discord/steam so I guess it's a matter of asking in future yeah.

    I should give you a -Support since you keep doing cell wars when I'm a spy :p

    But, I'll give you a +Support because you are a nice and great person. c:

    I do see that your grammar isn't exactly great, but not really a huge deal.
    I do have one question, though: if one is supposedly hacking, how would you gather your evidence?
    Other than that, your application is rational. Forum time is lacking, but can be fixed. My main concern is university, because as admin, people expect for you to respond fast and to be active. You are active on Discord, however, so that can be a good thing so if one requires assistance, you can alert fellow admins in a flash if you have university work. Will give +support. VAMOS!
