Do you have any previous experience holding staff positions??
VeltPvP - This was an HCF server that had a lot of players. It peaked at 10k on SOTW (Start of The World). I was a Chat-Mod first on this server. As a Chat-Mod, I basically moderated chat and stopped the toxicity. As you probably know, the HCF community is VERY toxic. I wanted to make sure that this toxicity did not go overboard and I tried to lower it. I then got Trial-Mod. This was when I had the most staff experience. This was my first time being a real staff on a huge server like Velt. I did a lot of support rooms, banned hackers, temp banned rule breakers, moderated chat, and overall did a lot of stuff as a staff member. I then got promoted to Mod after a while.

Minesaga - I was a Moderator on this network. I then resigned, but I am ready to come back. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as staff on this network. I met many new friends and was able to experience staffing on another big server.

DroidHCF - This was a server my friend and I owned. I was a Co-Owner and he was an Owner. I managed the staff team and helped with the release of the server including making payments. We only got around 20 players on SOTW, but I enjoyed the experience. We eventually had to close down the server due to not having enough money to keep it running.

IslandPvP - This was a regular faction server that was very toxic. I was Helper and tried to keep the toxicity to a minimum. This server averaged 10-50 players and peaked at 100 when the owner started advertising it. The server then shut down.

Why do you want to become a staff member?
One reason why I would like to become a staff member on Minesaga is because of my past experience here. I love this community and loved staffing on Minesaga. I resigned for reasons, but now I want to come back. I love meeting people in game and talking to them about the server. Also, helping people out is another main reason why I want to become staff again. I loved helping people out. Doing ban appeals on the forums, to muting people in game, to helping people; in general, makes me so happy. A second reason why I want to become a staff member is because of the growing community. I witness Minesaga go from 1-1.2k concurrent players to around 4.5k. This was one of my favorite parts about me being staff. Watching the server grow as a staff member amazes me and motivates me to help out the server as much as I can. A final reason for why I want to become a staff member is for the experience. I am not talking about the type of experience that I said in the previous question, but the experience of being around people that support me. The staff team has supported me when I was staff and when I wasn't staff. I am still friends with some of the Staff members such as Penquins, Medulla, Yoshi, and others. Being a staff member again will allow me to be able to work with them again on such a great server.

Why I should be accepted as a staff member/Why I should be accepted over other applicants.

Friendly
I consider myself to be friendly to everyone. I always respect peoples' opinions and joke around when the time is right. When it is time to be serious, I immediately switch from joking around to being serious. I usually complement everyone and help them with whatever they need help with. I am good friends with most of the staff too and talk to them daily.

Trustworthy
I am very trustworthy and you can count on me to never lie. I will always tell the truth even if it is not in my favor. I was always told to never lie and I do exactly that. I did not want to lie on this application because I want to be a truthful person. Trust is the main part of being staff because if people don’t trust you, you will have a bad reputation. People would not like to be helped by you or talk to you because you are not trustworthy. Being truthful and having other people trust you is important in being a good staff member. Trust is a vital thing to have and without it, it can ruin your friendships

Organization
I am extremely organized. Whenever banning players, I will always make sure I have proof. I will make sure to record all of my bans. Even if it is obvious hacks such as Blatant Bhop, to Kill Aura, the smallest of things could happen. The person could come into discord complaining that they were not hacking when I know for sure there were. If this ever happens, I will easily show my proof.
I know when you’re in a hectic situation, most people tend to panic and do things quickly. Most of the times, staff members may forget to record and just ban the player. I will not have this problem. I have an application called NVIDIA Shadowplay which allows me to record the past "x" minutes of my screen. This means I can ban someone as soon as I see them hack or do something wrong and I will have the proof recorded. I also keep a folder that contains all my proof of punishments. I have had one for every server I have been staff on. This allows for very easy access to proof as I also label them by the IGN punished.


Personality
I have a very calm and chill personality. If something serious is going on with the server, I will always stay calm and proceed to deal with whatever is happening. I am very chill and don’t go too hard on people unless needed. I am serious at times I need to be serious and fun and chill when it is time to relax and have fun. I am respectful to everyone and never talk back as that is very disrespectful. I personally think I have a good sense of humor and can brighten up people’s day if they are not feeling so well that day. Having a good personality is important when being a staff as it can determine if someone likes you as staff or doesn’t.

Maturity
Even though I am only 15, I like to think that I am more mature than others. I always acknowledge my mistakes and don't blame others for my wrongdoing. I rarely have outbursts of anger and I do not whine a lot. I make sure to not insult others as that is rude and not a nice thing to do, even if they insult me. I never make false accusations as there is no reason to blame others without proof. Also, I try and listen to others with consideration. When others present me with their perspective or view of something, I always try and put myself into their shoes and respect their views. As a Staff, my goal would be to set an example for others. I would love others to see that I am doing helpful things and that they will do the same. I try not to judge others as everyone is different and there is no reason to be rude to others because of their different characteristics. Being mature is a trait that everyone should have as it shows that you are capable of handling different situations peacefully and kindly.

-Thank you for reading my staff app! Feel free to leave any criticism in the replies.

Honestly, I don't mean to be blunt, but that's how I am with staff applications. But your app is bad imo.

Firstly, on looks itself, your formatting is off. Applications are meant to be written in left side alignment, not mid text alignment.
Secondly, the color scheme is like a bruised grape.

I didn't even want to read the application because of the ugly design, but I did and I have to say, the sentences are simple and looks rushed. Overall -1

Thank you for your feedback. Many applications have been accepted with mid text alignment and different colors. Also i didn’t rush my application as i have been working on it for months. If there is anything in particular you think I should work on please let me know.

Alright, first of all, the formatting is fine. So when you read an application, your opinion is altered by it's alignment? is you stupid? Second of all, nobody cares what colors you like or not, it's not all about the completely fine formatting or the poor color choice. I doubt you even read it, and you're honestly useless. You give him advice that won't really benefit him as the person accepting these staff applications doesn't care if he's reading something that looks like a "bruised grape." Third of all, what the fuck is a bruised grape?

Firstly, chill. When considering applications, appearances matter. How an application looks says a lot about a person, do they care about attention to detail? does the applicant consider how others may feel when reading their post? Will the reviewing officer simply glance over the application because it is so glaring? Does the applicant over stylize their application? Leading to factors which doubt their professionalism and ‘ready-to-work’ attitude. Everything matters in an application. Please keep this in mind when considering an applicant by using the whole picture as a reference.

btw a bruised grape is exactly as you would think it is, dark and purple. Just like a (bruised) (grape).

I just want to say something about the replies here, you can get denied because of a bad formating tho, putting on the middle can be a choice and can still be a good looking app so they will accept it.
They just don't like it when you make it different colors every time and different text positioning, so I don't think there is a problem with his app when it comes to colors and formating.

Prank can be ridiculous and funny at times, however he's good at knowing where the line is and when its time to step back and take a more serious approach which is definitely a good characteristic in a prospective staff member. When it comes to his ability to staff I've got 0 concerns. I always see him helping out a lot in game and over discord, he's been staff before, and he's definitely knowledgeable and caring enough to make a great staff member. Overall: +1.5
