Do you have at least 3 days cumulative days of playtime on Blackwonder servers in the last year. Yes, it's a bit more than 5 days

Have you managed servers previously? Yes

Which servers have you previously managed?
I was an administrator for the Jailbreak servers on MultiPhrix. I was an admin there for a couple of months, I stopped being an admin after the community closed due to financial reasons. I have also been a deathrun admin for Disc-FF for about half a year.

On what servers do you usually play on and which one would you like to moderate?
► BlackWonder | Deathrun #2 ◄
► BlackWonder US | Jailbreak ◄
► BlackWonder LA | Jailbreak ◄
► BlackWonder UK | Jailbreak ◄

Why would you like to become a moderator?
I would like to become a moderator because I find it a shame when rulebreakers disrupt the game with their actions, and there isn’t a member of staff to do anything about it. I made an application before back in 2016 but failed due to a myriad of reasons, I believe that since then I have changed a lot and that I am now mature enough to become a good moderator.

Do you know and have spoken to any of the current staff members? Yes

Is there any other information you would like us to know about?
While I was working on this application I took a look at my previous application I made back in 2016. Looking back at it I realized that my application failed not only because of the lack of quality and care I put into it, but also my behaviour in- and outside of the application. I would like to say that since then I have changed a lot and I would like to apologize for my behaviour back then. I also understand that I have several expired team bans and two expired communication bans. I would like to point out that all of these punishments are at least 3 years old and since then I have been following the rules much more carefully.

Are you proficient in languages other than English? Yes

Are you proficient in languages other than English? I can speak Dutch fluently.

* Edited some Deathrun punishment ladders
* Added Lucas to the staff list and removed a spelling mistake

You do not have the prerequisite knowledge necessary to moderate jailbreak. Just two weeks ago you were going blue on jb_orange and had utterly no idea what you were doing. I doubt you've developed the familiarity needed to oversee that game mode in 2 weeks time.
Obviously I can't speak for DR, and overall the app looks fine (lot of staff names on it too), but in my opinion you aren't ready for JB perms yet.

My opinion of your application is overall positive, but i have to agree with 10k here when it comes to your lack of experience.

You're going to be playing with other players who have been playing on the server for a very long time and you're going to need to be confident in your knowledge surrounding the game-mode in order to make decisions despite other people trying to influence you by quoting rules that don't exist or are misinterpreted. I don't think you're quite ready for the responsibility with your current experience on the server

Ladder is fine, I think you put a decent amount of effort into your ladders and I commend you for it. I can't comment on the DR ladder, however.

Your logs are fine, a little furry degeneracy here and there but nothing to write home about

Now then, with that being said, I do like you and can see that you're a pretty swell guy to be around on the servers. I think you have the personality for a moderator position, but I don't think your experience on the server matches that. I'd like to see you on the server for a bit longer before I'm able to give you my support.

Have a good afternoon, Dee.

Hi Dee, I have a few comments regarding Deathrun.

Faking a freerun: Kick for reason “Faking a freerun is not allowed”
Kick is not necessary, slay is enough if it happens once and also you should tell them about !drtoggle.

Skipping traps: Slay x 2 > Ban 2 hours > Ban 6 hours > Ban 12 hours > Ban 1 day > Ban 3 days > Ban 1 week > Ban 2 weeks > Ban 1 month > Ban Permanently

What do you mean by this? I mean you usually skip traps when you abuse bhop so I am not sure what do you mean by this.

Anyway you seem to be a cool friendly person, I have played with you a few games and you know what are you doing. +Support

Regards, Mr.Wizard.

I think I understand what happened here. I was playing Jailbreak with some Discord friends and we were joking around. The joke I was making was that I was pretending to have no idea what was going on while playing warden. It seems that this joke was executed a bit too well because it appears that some of you actually thought I was new to the gamemode.

In reality I have been playing Jailbreak on Blackwonder since 2016 and I am well familiar with the rules. If you still have doubts about my experience on Jailbreak feel free to join me whenever I am playing there.

In that case you're a troll and shouldn't have permissions whatsoever.

@10000 Cold Knights don't be so harsh to throw out his application just because he likes to have a joke now and then :p

You should know that we as Admins pretend to be people we're not all the time; it's part of the job.
Besides, knowing that he has previous Jailbreak experience should be a good thing.

If he was just aliasing, or even acting like a noob on red, it wouldn't even be an issue. He was deliberately going warden and giving terrible orders, which cost blue team multiple rounds and put the other guards in a horrible position. This is griefing, and had I been privy to this "joke" 2 weeks earlier I'd have teambanned him on the spot and we wouldn't be having this conversation, something I'm sure @x9_raven would've done as well had he been aware of it.

Perhaps they may still be worthy of moderating other game modes and I'm overreacting somewhat, but regardless, my position that someone with their experience acting in such a manner should not be touching jb perms with a 10 foot pole remains.

I was there at the time, I didn't see what Dee was doing as disruptive at all. People thought he was new to the server as he was acting like he was. However, he was following the rules the entire time, and people loved him as the warden, despite the flaws leading to a few reds rebelling. He was also being randomly picked as warden so I doubt he was intentionally ruining rounds for the blues, just a bit of harmless fun that lasted for a few hours. It was much better than your average new jailbreak player trying to give orders.

As for you application, you know a lot of staff here, you are often on the discord, and you have been playing on the servers for a long time.

*Punishments may increase in severity if this is done many times
Could you elaborate on this a bit more, like would you skip steps on the ladder or is the referring to going beyond last punishment?

Apart from that, I see no big issues with your punishment section, it's good to see you spent a lot of time thinking about it.

From the time I've talked with you on the discord and when I have played with you in-game, you seem like a player who knows the rules very well but could still use a little guidance here and there about edge cases. Since you came back, you have been very active on the jailbreak servers and I see you on almost every time I join.

I think you would make a great addition to the team so I wish you good luck with your application Dee.

I doubt you would have, correct me if I'm wrong but weren't you in the voice call in question?
People thought he was new to the server as he was acting like he was. However, he was following the rules the entire time,
Also untrue, he failed to give orders by 9 on at least one occasion, among other things.
and people loved him as the warden,
Yes, I'm sure the reds loved the charade he was putting on that let them easily rebel and win rounds.
despite the flaws leading to a few reds rebelling.

No favouritism (top)​

You cannot give specific players on the red team an advantage over the others. This could include pardoning only them, giving them a free pass on a minigame for no reason while the remaining reds are forced to play it, having uneven teams on team-based minigames, or allowing them to rebel with impunity.

No Griefing (top)​

Do not act in a way that is either against the objective of the gamemode you are playing or in a way that might annoy the players in the server.
He was also being randomly picked as warden so I doubt he was intentionally ruining rounds for the blues,
I distinctly remember him forcewardening as well.
It was much better than your average new jailbreak player trying to give orders.
I disagree with this sentiment, and I'm not the only one.

I reiterate: The only reason he isn't teambanned right now is because I don't have the demos of those rounds at the moment and at the time I assumed he was legitimately a new player and decided to honor a certain call for leniency towards that demographic. A troll impersonating one does not qualify.

This guy is experienced and knows how to play the game. (At least in the past)
A joke is fine every so often, no need to play the game-mode 100% seriously all the time.

I distinctly remember him forcewardening as well.
If someone force wardens too often, they can just get fired.

Good luck with your application.

Nice seeing you apply Dee

I've had a good amount of playtime with you, don't recall any inconvenience with you while you've been very active and you've learned rapidly and hold a good confidence in your knowledge with the rules now along with your upbringing as a jailbreak regular, you seem like a polite and understanding player. i believe you are a very chill player who could be of use as staff in servers that could always need some attention due to the nature of them.

Hello everyone, thank you for all the replies so far!

Could you elaborate on this a bit more, like would you skip steps on the ladder or is the referring to going beyond last punishment?

This is referring to going beyond the last punishment of the given punishment ladder if a player were to break the same rule repeatedly. For example; if a guard were to armory camp every round over 4-5 rounds instead of just getting a slay they would get a short teamban instead. This is only for rules where usually a slay or a kick would suffice in normal situations.

Hello Dee!

After playing with you for an extended period of time since my last post, I'd like to rescind my previous opinion and give you my support.

You have not had a repeat of the incident that 10k has cited and have remained a great example of what a jailbreak player should be. As long as you avoid having a repeat of said incident and avoid the influence of others (especially if youre in a discord call with them), I think you'd be a capable moderator on a server that needs all the help it can get.

Have a wonderful day and good luck on your application.
