    Dear Skyblock Community, Welcome To My Application

    Introduction
    I am a high school student from Sweden. I enjoy playing video games when I have time over, but I also enjoy playing and watching sports. I play Floorball, it's a Swedish sport and it's like ice hockey but you do not play it on ice.


    Your in-game name:
    Ak0_ (previously changed).


    What time zone are you in?
    CET (GMT+1).


    What country do you live in?
    Sweden.


    What languages do you speak?
    I speak fluent English and Swedish, I know basic French and I am still learning French at school.


    Do you have 2FA enabled? Yes/No
    Yes, I do

    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence?
    Yes, I use Medal and OBS studious. For screenshots, I use F2 and lightshot.



    Why do you think you should become a staff member?

    Dependability ~
    I am dependable when it comes to different things, I am a very well-known player around here, and I have played since 2013/2014. Meaning I know a lot of players and I have been able to gain their trust in me since then.

    Self-Taught / Quick learned ~
    I am great at teaching myself different type of skills and techniques. Meaning if I receive some type of assignment I don't understand completely I rather learn and understand myself since that is often quicker rather than asking someone. Also, I learn more from teaching myself rather than someone teaching me it. But sometimes it's good to get taught by others too. Therefore, I am not afraid of asking for help when I need to.

    Helpfulness ~
    I am very helpful, I think my helpfulness and honesty is unique compared to others. It is not something I force. It's more like a lifestyle or personality for me. I love helping others and make them happy because of what I have done towards them. Therefore, this job would fit me very well since I would get to help others more.

    Adaptability ~
    I am very adaptable, I am good to act "differently" in different scenarios. What I mean by this is that I can be professional when it is needed. I feel like it is important to not be like a robot when you are a staff member, this way you would be very boring.

    Available ~
    I am very active at my computer, meaning I am quick to respond when players need my help and I have access to Discord and forums any time needed. Therefore, I would be available most of the time as a staff member, I believe this is an important thing as a staff member since players tend to be impatient sometimes and require help as quick as possible.

    Friendly ~

    I am very friendly against everyone, I do not like having "enemies" as I feel I don't get anything from that. Instead, I like to be nice towards everyone because that will pay off most of the times.

    Familiarised ~
    I am very familiarised with the community, commands and rules. I feel like with 6 years on Minecraft and a lot of that time spent on this server I think I am familiarised enough to take the next step. It is very important to know the server well when you're taking the next step.


    How long can you be active on the server everyday?
    Around 4-7 hours, it depends on what day it is and what I have to get done in real life too. But for Discord and forums, I am available most of the time, since I have access to Wi-Fi and my phone.


    How long have you been playing Skyblock?
    I joined 2013/2014, and I have played frequently since then.


    Have you ever been banned in the past?
    No


    Do you have any previous moderation experience?
    Yes, I do have various experience as a staff member/leader.

    Minecraft ~
    I was recently Helper on MineVille, the player base over there was around 400-500 players. I resigned because they hired a new administrator that implemented weird rules and new stuff that none of us liked. This gave me a lot of experience is how to act professionally when helping another person. However, I also learned various commands, punishments, etc. It may not be the same here, but I got a basic understanding of how different things work and what to punish players for when braking rules. Here again, may not be the same but I got a basic understanding.

    Discord ~
    I've been staff on a lot of discord servers, discord servers from 200 members to 50.000 members, the 50k server was called OctaneCity. This gave me a lot of experience with Discord, in general, how, but it also gave me experience in how to explain different decisions more cleanly and make people understand you easier.

    In real life ~
    I was a secretary for my class in 7th grade, this gave me some experience of how to talk to others as efficient as possible for them to understand different type of things.
    I am also a sports referee, I am judging a lot of younger children. This is very helpful because when moderating any server you will speak with children and tell them what’s right and what’s wrong. Therefore, I think I am capable of speaking maturely to younger people.



    Do you meet the requirements for staff?
    Yes

    Thanks for reading! <3

    Eyy bro nice to see you applying again. I will support your application. I speak to you quite often in game and on discord. Knowing how you are as a person and your ethics I feel you would fit right in. I know there will always be players that will think different but I do feel you would make a great staff member. Funny, Friendly, None biased, Mature!

    i think you'd make a great mod, you're always friendly and helpful towards other players, and the skyblock community as a whole would benefit from you being a mod, full support, good luck!!

    Thanks, appreciate your support.
    Thanks Maddie appreciate your support too.
    Pepsi, it's fine if Bert wanna do that, he doesn't need to explain his reasons if he doesn't want to, he might do it later though, but thanks for your support.

    Please change your application colours, it genuinely hurts to read through.

    Neutral - unsure of how capable you’d be as staff.

    Oak, you're a really good person and you help on forums a lot.

    But I don't see you helping on skyblock.net

    So, for now, I'm going neutral

    Full support, i have been seeing you very active in game recently and on fourms, which is key to being staff but also you have helped me out personally and have also gave me good solid opinions on my map arts to help me improve so i appreciate that and think you deserve it.

    Neutral. You are a very nice person, and quite funny! But I think you could work on your maturity. Don’t get me wrong, you are not immature, but you could be more mature. In addition to this, I don’t see you helping many people out. Also, you could be slightly more active in game as I usually only see you online for 1-2 hours per day, even though you are only an hour ahead in time zones. Good luck on your application! I might rethink my decision at a later date! ;)

    Thanks cupcake, really appreciate those words from you :)
    Okay laini,

    Firstly, What could I change the colors to? Some more basic color like gray?

    Finally, what could I potentially change to convince others that I am capable for the role?

    Regards,
    Oak

    I do help a lot through private message, I don’t know if you want me to start helping in the general chat too. When they need more help rather than a quick answer I think it’s better helping private to prevent spam.
    Thanks vortex, glad to see you appreciating what I do on the server.
    Alright, this might be time zones I am not sure, but thanks for your criticism, I will try to work on my activity :)
    Thanks lucky :)
    Thanks tog,

    Firstly, I wonder what do I do to act “immature”, is it the way I type or what causes your thoughts?

    Additionally, I am online more than 2 hours mostly everyday, I think it has to do with when I am online. But as stated above I will work on my activity.

    Finally, since you think I need to be more active, I would like to know which platform I should work on mostly.

    Regards,
    Oak

    Well, if you wanted to continue with your red black theme, it’d be much nicer on the eye if you used these two colours. this and possibly this.

    I never said you were immature. You ate very mature but being a staff member, needs top level maturity, which I’m yet to see from you - not necessarily a bad thing. And 2 hours per day is not all that much.

    I agree with Ekan here. I always used to help in private message to prevent spam until I got notified that people didn’t think I helped anymore, so more recently I have been helping in general chat more. I still help even more in direct messages as I haven’t got used to my new was completely yet.

    Alright, but I told you I am online more than 2 hours a day also, what platform do I need to improve my activity on?
    Im just saying I’m helpful through private messages, should I start helping more in general, what do you think? As I stated I don’t wanna seem “spammy” when I help in chat, that’s why I prefer private message. Also helpfulness doesn’t all come with answering questions in chat, it’s all from helping people to get started to help your close friends with tasks they ask you to do.

    Kind regards,
    Oak

    He shouldn’t be dropping neutral ratings and not explaining himself and considering he is a mod. He should give reasons for you to get better. I find it unprofessional

    Its not Oaks fault if bert is being unmature about ratings, however though in most instances "Neutral" means No words, as in you dont choose a side and you dont have much reasoning too.
