I also have been making an Atempt to try and communicate with those that don’t use discord and there for are often left out of a lot of conversations and could feel like they are not wanted. I make sure to welcome all new players and let them know I’m here to help them in any way I can. I took my first step not that long ago by applying to be the water and psychic gym and it has helped me get to know players who otherwise weren’t talking that much on their server. Why we should accept you (100 words MINIMUM): I have years of experience in hosting small servers, being mod and admin on other servers in Minecraft and Garry’s Mod. Every time I join a server my first thought is is this a welcoming community that I want to be apart of, and most times this is true. Those are the servers I stay on and make friends on, and those are the servers that I use all my effort to make sure others feel as welcomed as I did and join in on the fun, and comradery. I’m not the most strict person when I have been a staff member (unless the situation calls for it then I am very stern on what I have to say) I like to follow the guidlines of the server enforcing rules and making sure others still feel welcome, a simple example of this is if a player was saying inappropriate things on the server I would give them a warning and tell them to stop or else face punishment, if they stop I let them be with the lesson they have now learned, if not I give them whatever the first time offender punishment is and then escalate it to higher punishments if the are a repeat offender. I like to participate in making events for players that give them a good time, and will take all the time I can out of my day to do so. I’ve always been a very caring person and overall I just want to help this community grow and be like a family. I am very calm and level headed, I look at issues from both sides before comming to a conclusion on an issue, my patience is extremely high so I have no problem having to help anyone no matter what I might be doing for my own personal gain, I’d rather help others then benefit myself, in example so far every time I am challenged on the server as a gym leader I accept the battle no mater what or tell them to give me a moment to finish something up and that I will accept, if I miss a notification in the chat I message the person personally to let them know I’m sorry and that they may now challenge me if they still wish to. Please give us an essay of the way our community works, a brief history of our server, and your knowledge of running a Minecraft server (300 words MINIMUM): I have not been here for anywhere near when this server started and most of my knowledge of its history comes from players who have been here for a long time so I honestly can’t say much to that part, as for how there community works from what I’ve seen the community is very active and helpful, they make sure others are always welcomed and feel comfortable on the server, most people if they have an issue with someone are very much open to compromise or working things out, all of which in my opinion are very integral parts of keeping a happy and blossoming community. As stated above I have been staff on many servers, I’ve been playing Minecraft since the beta days and Pokémon since about 2000, I know a lot of different plugins and how they work and I am confident in my ability to uphold the responsibilities of a staff member. My personal job makes me take on a lot of responsibilities and cooperating with multiple people who all do different things as well as organization. In This community I have noticed has a large age range of player making it very important to learn how to both keep the older players happy and able to have a good time but while making sure they arnt exposing younger players to innapropriate things or bullying them. Through out all of high school and middle school I was friends with a lot of troubled kids, kids who needed help with depression or just general problems in their life that were causing them anxiety. So at this young age I took it upon myself to act as a therapist for them to express problems to and give them advice. As a result of doing this for so long I have been able to understand all kinds of different situations and how to approach them. I have seen these situations come up on this server and have talked to the people who were having problems because I wanted them to know that someone was there to help them, I think that being there for your community even when it has nothing to do with the game is also very important to keeping a healthy and happy server. So many people use games as an escape from their lives. As a place where they can relax and forget about their problems. So I always want to help others to make sure that they don’t have problems in a place that they likely consider to be their safe haven away from a reality they may not be happy with. In conclusion to all of this, I am very thankful for the opportunities I have been given on this server to be who I am and make great friends, all of you have made my life infinitely better and I’m glad to have met you all, I plan to keep helping all of you no matter what and would love to make more friends in the future on this server.
