Have you managed servers previously? Yes

Which servers have you previously managed? undergroundlayer | cp_orange_z7 (server and websites have been shut-down in January 2018) (Admin for a year and 8 months)

On what servers do you usually play on? BlackWonder | Deathrun #2

Why would you like to become an admin? Some friends of mine who added me through the Deathrun server asked me why I haven't applied as admin, told me I'd do great because of my way of respecting the users and dealing with arguments and difficulties people have with each other. And my personal reason why I would like to become an Admin for one of your server is, I sadly haven't seen any active admin on the server for a while (who was there more than thrice in a week to solve possible issues people [currently] have). And I used to manage reports on their forums (short: I more or less know how forums work). In case that might be important to you:

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

If you do know and have spoken to any staff members, please tell us their names Tony The Fat Fluffy Wolf, Alex-Ario, Jim (casually)

When are you usually available to play? mid-week: 4.45PM CET - 9.25PM CET / weekends: ~8AM CET - 2AM CET

Please give us your ideal way of punishing players, specific to the game modes you play Microphone spamming:
If there are any mic-spammers I ask them in a kind and civil way to prevent using their microphone to spam music / loud noises / earrape. If they still refuse to I would warn them with a 5-minutes mute. If that mic-spamming behaviour remains, a one-day mute follows.

Racism / Slurs / (sexual) Harassment / mocking (bullying):
If I appear to see any racism / mocking, I would ask them to stop that and ask if they would like it to be constantly treated like that. If such behaviour keeps I will gag them for 30-minutes, are there no effects I'll make sure they're gagged for the rest of the week (if its saturday / sunday it'll remain until the next weekend)

Exploiters:
I ask them for their reasoning of ruining other peoples fun and breaking the server rules. (Lately I've seen a few people exploiting the heck out of maps with that weird spectator team glitch / exploit). Will they proceed to exploit I'd temp-ban them for a week, should that have no effect it will be a month. If there is no effect it more or less will have to be permanent because let's be honest, no one likes exploiters ruining the fun of others with their secret tricks

Spam:
To be fair, I never understood whats their reason to spam messages (because people obviously have seen them but probably ignore the message for their own valuable and respectable reason). Well then, my way of dealing with spamming is asking them to stop their constant message reposting and eventually gagging them for 10-minutes to be safe about them not spamming the chat with the message(s).

Calladmin abuse:
First off, I will ask them for their calladmin abuse reasoning, if it results in a disrespectful answer I more likely ask for their reason to act in such a rude way. Anyways, I would ask them to stop abusing the calladmin system for their hope to get someone unfairly punished or even banned. If they proceed to abuse the calladmin system I would gag them for a week (if that keeps on going I would gag them for a month and if there still are no effects: a permanent mute because It is rude to call an admin for every little problem someone has with another person).

Is there any other information you would like us to know about? In my past I used to have toxic and awful chatlogs in which I sincerely apologize and take responsibility. What I try to tell you here is, I grew up like everyone (eventually) did or does. I've been talking with Tony about applying as admin to prevent exploiters from breaking several maps and / -or killing the team(s). Since I pretty much play on your Deathrun #2 server on a daily and unhealthy long basis. I honestly hope my application is somewhat valuable to you and if you got any questions, be sure to add me on Steam and / -or Discord ( Abaddon#2631 [Accounts should be connected at my profile on your website] ). I know I haven't done anything on the forums as you clearly can see since I never had an account until the start of this month (October 2018).

If some circumstances prevent me from becoming a part of your team, thats no problem to me. At least I tried to help people and that's what counts for me.

Thanks for taking your time to read all this and have a great day / night! (This might have been a familiar application since I accidentally sent this one in an unfinished state and removed it, apologies for that)

I was going to say the same as Jim But he beat me to it x3, the punishments seem to jump extremely. 30 mins to 1 Week seems excessive.

Hello, Abaddon.

So about a while ago you ask me on Deathrun if you had any chance of applying, I said: "Go ahead, Blackwonder can always use more staff". You told me that you would if only your chat logs weren't toxic, yet to my surprise, I took a quick look and I didn't really find anything excessively toxic within this year! So, give yourself a pat on the back for that. Now looking into your application I'm pretty sure a lot of admins can agree and say that your punishments are all over the place. In my opinion, I don't see it as a big of a deal since you can take the time to learn and understand what's too soft and what's too extreme. I recommend looking over SB or accepted application's punishments just to get an idea on how things should be handled, but please try not to plagiarize as this could literally get your application declined in a heartbeat and give you a bad rep. Overall, you seem pretty nice and confident about your application, also I'm getting some good vibes from you. :^)

I'll be neutral for now until you fix up your punishments.

I've made up my conclusions and would like to show how I would deal with rule breakers in a very short but (hopefully) effective way (can be re-worked in case some punishments seem too soft or too strict).

(Map-) Exploiting:
Warning
; Slay ; Second Warning ; Votekick (because people still agree on votekicks, so yeah) ; 2 Hours temp-ban ; (if they still proceed to exploit) 24 Hours temp-ban ; (in case it keeps on going) 120 Hours temp-ban ; Final Warning ; (if there are no effects at all) Perma-ban

side note: The punishment-list for exploiters is short because from my personal experience it's really awful when somebody keeps on skipping maps and/-or kills team members and exploiting in general is just totally ruining the joy of others

Inappropriate Content (Sprays / Messages / Decals):

Warning (asking for the removal of that item / stopping of spraying that inappropriate [let's say it's a pornographic] spray / watching their language) ; Second Warning ; (if it's verbal) 1-Hour Gag ; (In case it keeps on getting sprayed / the decals are still being used / the language hasn't changed) Votekick ; (If no effects were accomplished) 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; 12-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days temp-ban ; 28-Days temp-ban ; Final Warning ; Perma-ban

Delaying:
Warning ; Slay ; Second Warning ; Slay ; Votekick ; 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; 48-Hours temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days temp-ban ; 30-Days temp-ban ; Final Warning ; Perma-ban


CallAdmin abuse:
Warning ; Second Warning ; 30-min Gag ; Votekick ; 1-Hour Gag ; 2-Hours Gag ; Second Votekick ; 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; 12-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days temp-ban ; 30-Days temp-ban ; Final Warning ; Perma-ban


Ghosting:
Warning ; 15-min Gag ; Second Warning ; 30-min Gag ; 1-Hour Gag ; 2-Hours Gag ; 15-min temp-ban ; 30-min temp-ban ; 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; 6-Hours temp-ban ; 12-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; 48-Hours temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days temp-ban ; 30-Days temp-ban ; Final Warning ; Perma-ban


Fake-Freeruns:
Warning ; Slay ; Second Warning ; Slay ; Votekick ; 15-min temp-ban ; 30-min temp-ban ; Slay ; 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; Votekick ; 6-Hours temp-ban ; 12-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; 48-Hours temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days Temp-ban ; 30-Days Temp-ban ; Final Warning ; Slay ; Perma-ban


Activator Suicides:
Warning ; Second Warning ; Votekick ; 15-min temp-ban ; Votekick ; 45-min temp-ban ; 1-Hour temp-ban ; 2-Hours temp-ban ; 6-Hours temp-ban ; 12-Hours temp-ban ; 24-Hours temp-ban ; Votekick ; 48-Hours temp-ban ; Votekick ; 5-Days temp-ban ; 7-Days temp-ban ; 14-Days temp-ban ; Votekick ; Final Warning ; 30-Days temp-ban ; Perma-ban


Text-Spam:
Warning ; 5-min Gag ; Second Warning ; 15-min Gag ; Votekick ; 45-min Gag ; 1-Hour Gag ; Votekick ; 2-Hours Gag ; 6-Hours Gag ; Votekick ; 12-Hours Gag ; 24-hours Gag ; 48-Hours Gag ; Votekick ; 5-Days Gag ; 7-Days Gag ; 14-Days Gag ; Votekick ; Final Warning ; 30-Days Gag ; Perma-Gag (because banning someone for using the chat system seems unfair)

Voice-Spam:
Warning ; 5-min mute ; Second Warning ; 15-min mute ; Votekick ; 45-min mute ; 1-Hour mute ; Votekick ; 2-Hours mute ; 6-Hours mute ; Votekick ; 12-Hours mute ; 24-Hours mute ; 48-Hours mute ; Votekick ;
5-Days mute ; 7-Days mute ; 14-Days mute ; Votekick ; Final Warning ; 30-Days mute ; Perma-mute (as said in the text-spam, would be a shame to get banned for using voice-communications)

If I missed something important here and there, feel free to tell me about it so I can edit stuff in.
Until then, good day

These aren't much better punishments at all. Try looking at sourcebans. There are extremely few instances where an admin would use votes when punishing.

I can however vouch you do know me enough to list me and that I can say you are active on deathrun as well as smarter than most players.

I've been looking at the Sourcebans, also noticed the 1-day ban on WeeFinn (some Micspammer I was dealing with) . I actually wanted to ask the admin some questions but they left as soon I started to write what else I would have to do. Guess I was too slow. But you're right. Gotta make more strict rules

I can't support you if you are sticking to these unresearched punishments.

First off, sorry for the late response. I currently am not at home and once I am, I completely rework everything in regards of punishments and do my research in the sourcebans. (as a side note: I will include penalties for ignoring clear warnings such as slays, kicks and possibly temp-bans). As of now, greetings from Munich!

I understand that you could be busy, but can you tell us when you'll be able to edit your punishments?

EDIT: (Was told that you're on holiday)

I'll give a proper reply after your next edit and/or if you took way too long to make an edit.

But I would like to point this out as this seems to be a general issue for most, if not all, your punishments.
Lengths that are shorter than 30mins
Text-Spam:
Warning ; 5-min Gag ; Second Warning ; 15-min Gag ; Votekick ; 45-min Gag ; 1-Hour Gag ; Votekick ; 2-Hours Gag ; 6-Hours Gag ; Votekick ; 12-Hours Gag ; 24-hours Gag ; 48-Hours Gag ; Votekick ; 5-Days Gag ; 7-Days Gag ; 14-Days Gag ; Votekick ; Final Warning ; 30-Days Gag ; Perma-Gag (because banning someone for using the chat system seems unfair)
are so short that they are barely noticeable and are unnecessary, I say this because comparing to donor votes, which lasts for 30mins, this barely changes anything. Instead, I would recommend you either start at 30mins and/or a day.

Another thing, you seem to give rulebreakers at least 10 chances before you finally provided a day punishment. This is stupid and far too lenient; If a rulebreaker would have gotten punished by you 7 times and have 3 vocal warnings, it would be quite clear they do not care.

I was told that you were on a holiday, my bad. That would mean the only current issues are your incredibly lenient punishments, resolve this and I would not mind +supporting, otherwise -support for now.

Have a good day and enjoy your holiday.
