    INTRODUCTION:
    Hello, thank you for clicking on my application. I was a staff member on Skyblock for around a month until 5 months ago. I would understand if you wanted to no support this application due to the short amount of time I was a staff member before leaving the team, but I would appreciate it if you took some time to go over this application and gave me honest feedback. I have decided not to go into details regarding the reason I left the staff team, but I would be happy to answer any inquiries in my private messages. It should be made clear that I never wanted to stop being a staff member. After leaving the team, my will to help others never disappeared. I have managed to organize myself with school, friends, family, and Skyblock - and, if I am given another opportunity, I will not let anyone down.

    IN-GAME NAME:

    Frxxn.

    WHAT TIME ZONE ARE YOU IN?

    UTC -03:00. Click here for a list of other countries in UTC -03:00.

    WHAT COUNTRY DO YOU LIVE IN?

    Argentina.

    WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK?

    I am fluent in Spanish and English. Additionally, I am learning French in my leisure time. I believe that there are not many Staff Members™ who are fluent in Spanish and I feel like being able to carry out a conversation in order to help a Spanish-speaking player would be beneficial.

    DO YOU HAVE 2FA ENABLED?

    Yes.

    DO YOU HAVE THE NECESSARY MEANS OF CAPTURING EVIDENCE?

    Yes; Gyazo, Imgur, and OneDrive (Prt Scr) for screenshots and Bandicam for videos.

    WHY DO YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BECOME A STAFF MEMBER?

    Unbiased and thick-skinned: Saying you're unbiased and actually being unbiased are two very different things. When I first became part of the staff team, I found it somewhat difficult to be completely fair and objective. However, I have learned to treat my friends as normal players and hand over the case to my mentor or another staff member if needed. Additionally, I am thick-skinned. This is useful, especially since (in my experience) some players like insulting or just being rude overall to staff members for no reason in particular. However, I do not lose my temper and I do not let it affect me.
    Well-known, involved and experienced: I am really involved in the community, and I know most of the active players. I know how the server and the community works. I've been playing for around five years and I am familiar with most of the player/moderator commands.
    Active, organized and responsible: During my last experience as a staff member, my main problem was not being able to manage my time responsibly. I played Minecraft too much and dedicated little to no time to school and other responsibilities. However, in these five months, I have been able to take a step back and set my priorities straight. This has allowed me to be more organized and even more efficient and dedicated.
    Mature and friendly: Despite my young age (16), I consider myself to be a mature person. This allows me to make decisions based on experience - not instinct. Being mature, however, does not mean I am serious all the time. I can joke around with players while still remembering my responsibilities. I consider myself to be very friendly towards new players and with the community in general, making people feel comfortable and enjoy their experience in Skyblock as much as possible.
    Patient: I understand some issues take time to get resolved, especially when dealing with new, inexperienced players. By being patient and calm, I am able to take as much time as I need to solve a problem in the best way possible. This is useful for both the moderator and the player. It is always a pleasure to listen to anyone's problems and help them.
    Quick learner: I'm adaptable and flexible. I make mistakes, of course. However, I don't get easily frustrated and I grasp new concepts and commands quickly. I have learned from my previous mistakes in order not to make them again. I am friends with many of the staff members, and this allows me to learn new things and become wiser and wiser every day. In my previous days as a moderator, I made some rookie mistakes. However, thanks to my former mentors and the other members of the team, I have reflected upon them and I am confident that they will not be made again.

    HOW LONG CAN YOU BE ACTIVE ON THE SERVER EVERYDAY?

    Monday: 19:00 - 00:00
    Tuesday: 18:00 - 00:00
    Wednesday: 17:30 - 00:00
    Thursday: 19:00 - 00:00
    Friday: 18:00 - 00:00
    Saturday: 12:00 - 00:00
    Sunday: 12:00 - 00:00
    These are the times when I will be available. I will be active for around 2-3 hours on weekdays, and as long as I can on weekends. Of course, it can vary depending on the amount of homework I have (or other activities).


    HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING SKYBLOCK?

    I first joined somewhere between late 2013 and early 2014, although I haven't always been active.

    HAVE YOU EVER BEEN BANNED IN THE PAST? (Forums & In-game)

    I have never been given a punishment on Forums/Discord, but I was banned twice in game. Once in 2014 for griefing an old friend as a revenge joke, and then in 2017. My account was hacked, resulting in a one week ban for griefing.

    DO YOU HAVE ANY PREVIOUS MODERATION EXPERIENCE?

    (Taken from my previous application)
    I do. In 2013, I used to play in a well-known server where I was promoted to Helper and, after receiving different promotions, I became Head-Admin. We used to have 50-150 players daily. Unfortunately, the website which gave the server its fame died, along with the server.
    I was also staff on another server. I started off as a Builder and ended up moderating it since the staff team consisted of builders. It had between 25 and 100 players daily. The server still exists, but it's mostly empty now.
    Then, I was an active player in 2016 on a server where I got promoted to Chat-Mod; after a while, I became a Moderator and finally got Co-Owner. As the Owner was rarely on, the other Co-Owner and I ran the server. Unfortunately, the Owner, who turned out to be an immature kid, stopped paying for the server without telling any of us.
    Finally, I was a helper on this server between the months of March and April. I know it is a very short time, but during that time I learned a lot of things. I am familiar with the commands I need to moderate, and with LogBlock.


    DO YOU MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR STAFF?

    Yes.

    Support, you're nothing but a great person and someone I could trust at all times. If anyone is going to do good for the server, it'd be you bud.

    Neutral. I know you can be a great helper, I can see that in you. Just need to be active. I'm also concerned about your school, are you going to leave after couple weeks? It's always a good idea to double check to make sure all your schooling is sorted out.

    I want to support you but I want to make sure you have your personal (and academic) life sorted out ;D

    I have read what he has said, I am just asking him to make sure he has everything under his control. It's not a bad idea to go through his schedule once or twice and make any tiny readjustments :p

    Neutral but leaning to support- you need to be more active

    (also Grammarly is saying you have spelling errors)

    Thank you for your support!

    Thank you for the feedback I understand your concern. If I were in your place, I would think the exact same thing. However, reapplying is not something that I thought about today. I have been thinking about reapplying since the moment I left the team. I have taken a close look at my schedule and the time I dedicate to things. After almost half a year of being able to play a healthy amount of time while still managing to be an almost straight-A student and spend time with my friends and family, I am confident that I will be more than able to have this position without losing balance and control. If you have any other concerns, feel free to ask me.

    Thank you for your rating A completely understandable reason. I am working on my activity, as I have just came back from spending a week in my countryside without access to my laptop. However, I am now back in my house, and I will spend a reasonable amount of time online, as highlighted in the How long can you be active on the server everyday? section of the application.

    Regarding the grammar, it is possible that I have some spelling errors. I am human and capable of making mistakes, after all. Thank you for telling me; I will go over the application again. Would you mind pointing out the mistakes?

    One of the most absolute thing that bugs me is when people resign from staff and then a few months later they want to just re-apply. I really don’t get it, if you need to take a break from the game, you can just explain that and moderate when you come back. Fran you are a good person but I guarantee you that you can’t answer this question. Also how do we know you won’t just walk away from the staff team again? I don’t like when people do this, you resigned for a reason, now you want to re-apply just because you miss moderating. It makes me wonder how much you actually care about the server and do you just want a better status in this community? Now, I have seen a little of your moderating and I’d rate it about a 5/10. I don’t think this will go well, just my opinion. No support.

    Thanks for understanding, Red . I will not let you down.

    Hey Pepsi! Thank you for your feedback, I truly appreciate it . Your reasons for no supporting me are understandable. It also bothers me when staff resign, disappear for a couple of months and then come back and decide they want their rank back. However, the difference with me is that I never left. Even after resigning, I stayed active, while also taking a step back to organise my schedule. If you have seen me online, which I am sure you have, you should have noticed that I enjoy answering questions in chat and helping people as much as I can. I know and I can assure you that I will not walk away from the staff team again like I did last time, especially since I've spent this half year making sure my schedule is alright and that I can manage to be a good moderator. Of course, I am reapplying because I miss moderating and I want to do it again. That's the whole reason why people volunteer to become staff members! We want to contribute to the community and maintain the peace in the server.
    I appreciate the 5/10 rating, although I'm not sure where it is coming from. While I was helper, I was mostly on Skyblock and Economy. It would have been impossible for you to observe my moderating, considering you were perm-banned at the time on both servers. On classic, I mostly dealt with small chat offenses and a few lootings and griefings. The few times I ran into you, however, I consider myself to have been really helpful. I solved your issue with people having locked your chests, by contacting the player who had privated the chests (who had actually quit the server!). I also spent time delivering your messages to Michael, since he was your banning moderator and you were unable to create a discord account to directly talk to him. I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what you disliked about my moderating in order to work on it if I am given a second chance. Anyway, thank you for your feedback! Looking forward to hearing back from you.

    I know you will get repromoted.

    But I have to agree with Pepsi and archer to some degree. Personally, if you had to resign instead of take the break then that is okay. But the real question is will you need to do the same again? And what would be the point of being staff for a bit then needing to leave again when something comes up? Next time could you remain staff and take a break? Think about these as the application progresses, but don’t close the app because of it; find a way to ensure things will be different.

    Regardless of all the bs and crap spoken on inactive staff being a bad thing, there is nothing wrong with needing to take a break with the mod tag on and being inactive. Every applicant should be aware activity isn’t everything.

    So for now, neutral. There is no doubt for your abilities, I personally just wish to see you show that you are here to stay.

    I’m gonna be honest here you were very slow when I was trying to message you in game on classic, you went afk way too many times when we were having a straight up conversation. I don’t want to bring up all the details that you mentioned. I just don’t understand why now you would want to be a moderator, if you’re helping out others in game a lot right now then why would you like to have moderator, you’re still helping right? This makes me jump to the conclusion that this has something to do with having power. This is just my perspective of things.

    I do agree with Krissy regarding handling breaks over resignations, but I think you’re mature enough to keep that in mind, so with that in mind, support.

    I'd love to support you Fran, you're a great applicant and have proven you can handle the position.

    However resigning to take a break and then re-applying the second you return doesn't really make much sense and I do think you need to prove yourself for a little bit.

    I hope I can change this neutral to a support real soon :)
