Eric's tempmod application (this time without the added inactivity!)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
  1. What is your real name? Eric Stack

  2. What is your main character’s in-game name?

    I have 2 main characters, one for S2 and one for S1. They are Eric and A mage named Eric

  3. How often do you play and how long have you been on our servers?

    I play when I can, I try to play at least once a week, but my playing session dates are pretty random. I have been on Rencorner for around 11 months.

  4. How old are you?

12, 13 in 2 days.
 

  1. Why do you want a staff position?

So I can A. help newcomers and B. Show rulebreakers when no one else is on that can do anything that breaking the rules is an action that is not taken lightly.

  1. What is your history with moderating and/or administrating Terraria servers?

Honestly none.

  1. What is your understanding of the responsibilities of Helper/TempMod?
    Follow the rules, enforce the rules, and provide help and support to new and/or struggling players and don't abuse your powers. 
     

  2. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the least), how comfortable are you with IRC?
    I may have just made an account, but it seems very easy to use and figure out, so I would say a 6
     

  3. How long have you been playing Terraria?

    A year.

  4. Have you ever been banned on a server before? If so, why?

Never on a Terraria server, twice on MC, once was because somebody confused me for someone with a very similar username, and once 5 years ago for raiding someone's base who raided mine.
 

  1. Name four of our server rules and explain why they're important

Don't item, boss, or text spam: Item spamming makes lag, boss and text spam fill up the chat box, and creates lag.

Don't hack: Makes unfair advantages in PVP and allows for people to break the server.

Don't exploit or glitch the game up, as easy as Cenx has made it to do so: Gets you into places you shouldn't be, allows you to break claimed stuff.
Don't advertise: It is annoying and we don't want to get in trouble with other servers, so they shouldn't try to do the same with us.

  1. What would you do if there was a situation you could not handle?

Get a higher staff like Skilz and ask if they could handle it. Honestly, it is hard for me to do that, but I can do it if I just quit the game for a few hours.

 
 

  1. Your best friend joins our server and begins hacking, what do you do?

Warn him, and then start punishing. If it get's out of hand, get a higher-up and ask them if they are able to handle it.
 

  1. Another player you dislike says something that bothers or annoys you, how do you react?

It depends. I will try to ignore them but if it is racist or anti-gay (mainly) or just plain rude or obnoxious for the sake of making people's lives hell, then I will find myself A. getting angry and B. overreacting. Since a certain thing happened a few weeks ago I have gotten better with this, but I still occasionally, both in games and IRL, finding myself overreacting.
 

  1. What would you say is your biggest strength? Your greatest weakness?

My greatest strength and weakness is that I am persistent. If some idiotic troll keeps spamming, I will try to tell them to stop. If that doesn't work I will try to take matters into my own hands. Sometimes this goes well. But other times I push myself too far and get too immersed into what I am trying to do, and start getting angry and frustrated. As I said, I have gotten better at this, but it still happens occasionally. 
 

  1. A man’s wife is very sick and needs special medicine to survive. The only pharmacy to have the medicine is charging a ridiculously high price for it, which the man cannot afford. Is it okay for the man to steal the medicine? Why or why not?

It is OK, as the woman's life is more important than the sale of one single bottle of medicine.
 

  1. What sets you apart from other players and staff applicants? Answer in at least 20 words.

I am still new, which allows for learning if I someday moderate a server, and I am still figuring things out in both rencorner and terraria, which, if someone new to terraria or the server tells me something I didn't know, and am surprised about, I would think it would give them a feeling of confidence, as they taught someone who is (temp)mod something new.
 

  1. Anything else you would like to add? No, That's all folks!

Thought that no abusing powers went with following the rules, but put it there anyway.

Eric, you haven't been in-game on Server 1 for six days, we require applicants to be active on both servers, mainly Server 1. (for now ;p) 

I'll put this on hold for now once you're active daily on both servers and your activistly level stabilizes.

OK. For the next few weeks I will try to get on when I can, but I have my B-day party tomorrow, my friends are coming over for the night, I am staying for a day or two with my grandparents and cousin, and in a few weeks I will be in new Orleans for a week and a half.

I liked your #16 the most Eric. That was honestly refreshing, morals/rules are fine...until they start costing lives and pain. At that point it's best to do case-by-case or fix the system.

Heyo Eric, while you posted your application, Satomi and I were discussing a possible new question to put on the application, the motion passed, so may you answer new number 18?:

You are driving past a small bus stop with 3 people sitting there. You are in a car with room for only one person, even if you try to cram  people in to the car. As you slow down to see if you can help, you see three people. An elderly woman, who says she needs to go to a hospital nearby but cannot afford an ambulance; A very old and dear friend of yours (who you owe a big favor) who needs to get to a business meeting in the next 30 minutes, and the most attractive mate you've ever seen, who looks at you, and it's love at first sight. Who do you help, and why?

(Forgot how to edit posts) to answer the question, the elderly woman, because someones meeting, even a friend's who I owe a favor, or a possible lover are less important than somone's life or sickness that requires hospitalization. I always put peoples life's at the highest priority.

Just realized that ambulances are free, but for the sake of the question I am assuming where ever this scenario is taking place, ambulances cost money.
