Raven.  Server Moderator VIP 14 May 20 at 12:10pm Edited
FULL RP Name(s): 

Brigadier General Raven | OSS COLOSSUS Raven | MACE 05 9984

What is your current IG level?: 


Discord Username: 


Steam ID: 


What region/timezone are you located in?: 

EU, UTC+1.

Do you have a microphone?: 

Yes, although I'm not able to use it alot currently.

Previous Warns?: 

1) VoR | RDM | 1 | Nero 2) VoR | FailRP Name | 1 | Hangman 3) VoR | Powergame | 1 | Katarina

Previous Bans?: 


Why do you want to be part of the staff team? Must be at least 3 sentences.:

Although the issue is more or less getting fixed by more people applying, I still feel like the amount of staff online during European times is fairly low. Due to my timezone, I could hopefully help with this issue. I've been wanting to help the community more in various ways, I'm trying to fix toxicity by a fair bit for the Resistance although I can't say that there have been very good results yet due to a lack of people reporting issues (Dodgy can attest to this).I'd like to make the experience for people more enjoyable/fun by helping them in certain situations that a normal player can't.

Why should you be accepted on the staff team? Must be at least 3 sentences.:

I have some staff experience, these would include: GGN CWRP where I was a Senior Administrator, GGN IMPRP where I was a moderator, GGN GalaxyRP where I was a Moderator and GGN MilitaryRP where I was a Moderator aswell. I resigned from all of these due to burnouts from SWRP servers. I was also an Administrator on Outlawnetworks, a MilitaryRP server that had been shutdown and a Moderator on Celerium, a DarkRP server that is still currently up from what I know (Resigned, ofcourse). Not sure if they count aswell, but I was a Discord Administrator on GGN CWRP and Infrastructure Staff on here. Other than my staff experience, I'd say that I've been a community member for a fairly long time, I first joined in April 2018 and have stuck around ever since. I'm also fairly active in-game currently.

Do you understand that you must change your Steam name to "[DEFN] (Username)" upon getting accepted?: 

Yes, I do.

Any staff who can vouch for you?: 

Dodgy, Aura, Vix, Ace. 

An MPF Union kills a Civilian but you don't know the reasoning behind the killing.
What do you do?

I'd bring the civilian and UNION into a sit in a secluded spot where "RP" usually doesn't take place. RDM sits usually depend on evidence, if the civilian is able to provide
evidence that backs his case up, I'd warn the UNION. If the civilian would not be able to back up his case with evidence, there's not alot that can be done. Also, if the UNION in question is lying about not RDM'ing the civilian, he'd get warned for both RDM & Lying to Staff. After that, I'd return them both to their previous positions.

An H.E.C.U. Soldier enters the Combine base to "RP defect".
How do you proceed as a staff member?

Not alot can be said about this one as it's fairly simple. The H.E.C.U soldier would be brought into a sit, with a final chance to explain his actions.
After that, I'd issue a warn for FailRP. "RP Defecting" is not allowed at all. Also this is practically a cease fire aswell, but he'd be warned for FailRP.

Outside of the staff side, I'd warn the H.E.C.U's CO about one of his H.E.C.U's breaking rules and participating in a "cease fire/defection".

You find a SU/MACE CO infiltrating without notifying their team in chat. You bring them into a sit to talk to them about breaking the rules. In this sit the CO threatens to demote your RP character if you don't let them go.
How do you handle this?

This is more an issue for CO's than staff, but I'd warn the MACE/SU CO for breaking the rules. If the person in questions decides to disrespect me then I'll mute/gag them considering that warns don't stack. After that, I would go to their superiors and report 1) The MACE/SU CO infiltrating without notifying in team chat and 2) Disrespecting a staff member for doing their job.

A group of players comes onto the server and threatens to DDOS or raid it.
What do you think you should do?

DDOS raids and threats are a zero tolerance policy on DEFN. Like most other servers, it is not something to joke around with. If it is a raid, I'd gather the ones participating in said raid their STEAM ID's and send it to a Senior Administrator or above. After that, I'd ban them for raiding. if it's a DDOS or a DDOS threat, I'd give the STEAM ID's to a Senior Administrator or above aswell, but preferably a HA. DDOS's and DDOS threats are a permaban, and I'm not sure if normal staff may permaban. So that's something I'll leave to the higher-ups.

You see a high ranking staff member doing something questionable, but you don't know if it is allowed.
What do you do?

Make sure that you know if it's allowed or not, if you're uncertain you can check the rules or DM another staff member. If it's not allowed, you'd gather the necessary proof to make a report about the staff member. Then I'd send the proof to a Head Admin or the STL and wait on their answer. This isn't something under my jurisdiction, so there's not alot I would be able to do besides making the report.

+1 Great App. Even greater the person who made it.

As seen in the app, I do indeed vouch for raven. He has changed character quite significantly. Raven's growth as a person in the community is very admirable. 

I'd happily welcome you into the team right away, but it is important to hear the voices and opinions of others. Any insight on Raven is about as important as the one I am posting.

Nevertheless, my point stands, and you have my full support, and will continue to have it.

+1 Excellent application and an equally excellent player. I only see great things come from this player and I'd very much like to see them as a member of the staff team. Has tons of server staffing experience and is a dedicated member of the community. Good luck on your application.

It feels weird giving you a +1 for something honestly, but hey. I couldn't think of a much better candidate for the staff position, to be honest; I've seen Raven work and, let's just say, theirs a reason he's in a Leadership position. He definitely has a place in the staff team!

Not sure how much weight this will give in deciding whether or not Raven is accepted, but I'd like to give my commendations from an IC-perspective. Raven has taken many strides to better community relations on an IC-level and I feel they can translate that effectively to a server-wide level. From opening up lines of communication for the Combine to Rebels through our PR department to tackling toxicity he shows a drive to better the community, hence why I think he can achieve that on a grander scale as a staff member. All in all, I think they will become a valuable asset to the staff team.

Raven is a great member of the community, and this application is well-formatted and has good answers. I've seen and heard a lot of good things about you, and I'm sure you'll be a great staff member. You put a lot of effort into this app, and I feel vouching for you was the right choice!
