Hello Dream Community,
This is my application for becoming again a part of the admin team.
0) Do I meet the requirements ?
I do meet the requirements to become an administrator.
1) What’s your name in real life and in game ?
My real name is Arnaud. I live the city of Dijon located in Burgundy, France.
My in-game name is Luckiris for most of the games that I own/play.
2) How old are you ?
I am 20 years old. My birthday is on the 29th of April.
3) Why do you want to join our administrative team ?
I want to join the administrative team because of a few reasons.
I know for fact that a lot of people trust me in every part of the community. Some of them are asking me sometimes to solve their problems.
Then, I used to manage an entire community a long time ago, so I know how an administrator should act, the behavior to have, the example you need to give to the players of the community.
Now come the main reason, I am a man who is always trying to help by solving people problems by creating plugins, suggesting new rules, new content and ending arguments.
This main reason come also with a lot of motivation because like Glenn from The Walking Dead said, we need to make it work so I need to try to make it work by showing my motivation every time my help is needed.
4) How long have you been playing on our servers ?
I’ve been playing for a while on Dream Community servers. My first time was in September, 2016.
This is my Stamm points on all servers :
- Jail : 0
- TTT : 14728
- Knife : 31785
- Bunny-hop : 5814
- Minigames : 6371
- 1v1 : 861
- Surf Deathmatch RPG : 79
- Surf Ski Go 2 : 1026
(Stamm points updated on 02/07/2017 at 17:20)
I don’t really know for the CSS servers but less than 60 for all of them.
5) What are your favorite hobbies or pastime ?
I like to spend time with my friends. This is one of the most important thing for me.
Then I like to do some coding, making servers, everything which is related to computers, applications, threats, technologies, ...
I have always a project to code, not always something useful but I’m trying to understand things or how to do them.
6) Do you think yourself as mature ?
I think I am mature. I am 20 years old so my behavior changed a lot since I’m not 15 anymore and I know that I need to act as an adult because, like some of you already know, I live alone and I take care of myself so I think I meet the requirements to be considered as mature.
Another reason could be that I used to run a community 6-7 years ago. I know how to act to make people happy and give them the feelings to play on servers every day.
7) Have you gained experience as an administrator before ?
I gained some administrative experience before.
My first experience was that community in which I was an owner.
Then, I acquired a lot of experiences by being an admin in Dream Community a few months ago. In my opinion, an administrator needs to know the people, the rules and the other admins. This is what I’m trying to do in every community I went. This is what every experience I had meant to me.
8.) When do you play ?
It really depends of the kind of period (holidays / universities) so I’m going to give an estimation for each kind of period.
- Every day : I can play for all days if I have nothing else to do.
- Week days : Mostly after 19:00 h and I would stop at 23:00 h but it can vary.
- Week end : I can play for all days if I have nothing else to do.
9) User 1 calls user 2 a "cunt" and proceeds to insult him further - what actions would you take ?
To deal with that, I must know if they are friends first.
Then, two cases are possible :
They are friends :
I usually ask them to stop saying that on servers and I ask them to keep that in private on TS3/Discord/….
They are not friends :
I tried first to tell them to stop and solve that in private. If both users don’t stop insulting each other then I need to take actions. It would be a warning first especially if the users are new to the servers.
But in the other case, I would take directly an appropriate action. When I’m talking about an appropriate actions, it would be a slay, mute, gag…
Then, if it doesn’t stop, I would have to take it one step further by kicking them. A ban would be applied only if necessary like for the people who have already multiples bans or people who doesn’t seems to care at all.
- Old: In the way that I’m an adult so I know how some young people thinks because I’ve been there.
- Kind : Always ready to talk/discuss before taking any actions
- Nice : I’m trying to stay nice all the times
- Serious : I try to be serious when I need to act and especially when I need to take important decisions
- Available: You can talk to me whenever you want on Teamspeak or in game.
- Atmosphere: Keep a good atmosphere on servers is important for me.
- Motivated: I’m motivated especially when it comes to change / work on stuff.
- English: Well sometimes, my pronunciation is not that good but it’s just related to the fact that as most of the people: it’s not my first language.
- Feelings: I made some mistakes by deciding by feelings in the past but I will do whatever I can to not make that happen again.
12) Why are you applying again ?
I’m applying again because I feel like I gave up, thing I never do usually so it gives me more motivation to try to apply again.
There is an another reason, the day I left, @Nachtfrische told me that the reasons I gave him was the reasons to keep him going with what he is doing.
After thinking a lot about that, I found that he was right so I recognized my mistakes and I decided to change so thank you for that @Nachtfrische. This time off gave me a lot of questions I had to answer for myself and it improves me in a way.
13) Why do you think you can be an administrator again ?
There is a little story behind that. After I left, I tried to open a few servers for myself and make a new community like before when I was an owner. But, after some days, I wasn’t feeling good because I was slowly becoming someone I didn’t want to become: a traitor and a backstabber. Then I decided to stop everything and try to regain the trust of Dream Community because I have a lot of friends I didn’t want to loose and I know that a lot of people are supporting me so I don't want to deceive them. This is why I start to be very active again. I’m trying to have a role in the community by helping people the most I can and by trying to develop plugins that the admin team needs. I decided to read all the admin meetings in order to know what they decided and what they need and that way, I can try to develop their ideas into plugins.
14) You have some close friends who act or acted in a bad way, would you take the appropriate actions if needed ?
I agree with the fact that I support at 100 % my friends. However, that doesn’t mean they would have my protection or anything on servers.
If I need to take an action against them, the action will be taken no matter what.
An admin needs to be fair and neutral in his actions so I would do whatever is necessary against them even if it means to ban them permanently.
15) Conclusion / Closing remark
Thanks Dream Community for giving me a lot of nice people and friends to talk to. I’m spending great times playing with you people.
Thanks to all the people who are supporting me everyday.
Thanks for taking time to read this application and remember, every criticism is appreciated so don't hesitate to comment.
