    Hey there, my names Craney100 (Nickname Craney), but my real name is Stan. I’m 17 and from the UK. I am mainly a player on Economy, but often hop onto Skyblock for a while! If you are a player of /skyblock and do not see me often, do not be put off by this! I am a big economy nerd and often when I'm on survival I don't make myself known, please still take me into consideration!

    Your in-game name:
    My In-Game name is Craney100, and my nickname is Craney.
    My discord is Craney#5010.

    What time zone are you in?
    Currently, my time zone is BST (UTC+1h).
    You can view an updated version of my time zone here

    What country do you live in?
    I live in England, UK.

    What languages do you speak?
    I can speak English (My first language),
    GCSE Level French (I can have a conversation fluently),
    and I picked up a little bit of Spanish during my road trip around Spain! (Enough to have a simple conversation).

    Do you have 2FA enabled?
    Yes, I have 2 Factor Authentication enabled for both my forums account, discord account and Minecraft Account.

    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? (i.e. recording software, screenshots, etc)
    Yes, installed on my computer is Gyazo, Lightshot and the built in f2 capture for Minecraft to obtain screenshots, and for screen recording I have Bandicam, Filmora and Gyazo GIF.

    Why do you think you should become a staff member?

    Knowledge of the Server
    I have been playing Economy since late 2013. Since then, I have picked up lots of knowledge throughout my time on commands, protocol and plugins within the server. As well as this, I have met so many members of the community along the line in which I have gained knowledge from. I believe as a staff member, this would be very useful as I already know a lot of the processes involved within the role.

    Dedication
    I spend a lot of time on the Server, to the point where I believe I could be classed as an Active Member. It's not uncommon that I am spotted with an 8-hour seen time, and therefore I believe I could be a very dedicated member of the staff team. I am the type of person that is very driven to strive for the best in myself and becoming a staff member I believe I could really dedicate myself towards the role, benefiting the community in any way possible.

    Organisational Skills
    I believe that I am a very organised person, and this could benefit me in this role. Whenever I am playing on MC I always have Discord on one monitor, and forums open in a tab - this means that I am ready to contact a member of staff for any help or report a player on the forums immediately. Within the role this means that I could be active on the forums whilst also playing and be there to help with any questions or queries via discord.

    Written & Verbal Communication Skills
    I feel that I have very good written & verbal skills, I can get across my point easily and efficiently without 'beating around the bush'. This would really help in a Staff Position as you need to be clear and concise when communicating with other members of staff and players.

    Trustworthy & Honest
    Other's would describe me as an Honest and Trustworthy person, I often give my honest opinion when necessary and can be trusted with responsibility. I feel that this is a key aspect of being a staff member as essentially you are given tools which need to be used responsibly. For example, I have never griefed on the server or taken anything that isn't rightfully mine. As well as this, many players have me trusted on their island which shows that others do not see me as untrustworthy.

    Leadership Skills
    I have characteristics that a leader has, and I can take control of a situation when need be. I feel this is quite a natural skill to me as I have always been able to co-ordinate effectively, whether it be a task, a team of people or a group of players on a Minecraft Server :>
    One real life example of my Leadership Skills is a voluntary job I have as a coach at a local water sports club. On a weekly basis, I lead a group of peers through guided sessions on the water and am often responsible for other adults & children.

    Teamwork Skills
    To link in with the last point, I also work very well within a team of others, and can complete any tasks given to me. I will complete any tasks thoroughly, and feed back to the rest of the team with further ideas, not being afraid to make any suggestions.

    I am a Just Person
    I am always striving for justice, and I feel I am someone who can make good decisions with a non-biased opinion by weighing up each side of an argument, the disadvantages and advantages of consequences and ethics. This can lead to a clear decision that can benefit both sides of a party and, not only this, the community.

    My love for Skyblock
    Skyblock has always been a love of mine and is by far the most played Minecraft Game-Mode for me. This server has brought me no end of joy, and the community & player base have supported me through tough times. I would love to give back to the community, as they have done so much for me.

    How long can you be active on the server everyday?
    (Circumstantial) But roughly 5 hours a day. This is often more due to the current Covid-Situation and often higher during weekends as I have no college work!

    How long have you been playing Skyblock?
    I originally started playing Skyblock back on .NET, in roughly late 2012 - early 2013. Upon release of .ORG (and me figuring out how to get onto it) I joined the economy server and in 2014 made my forums account. Since then I have had some breaks but ultimately, I am back playing on a daily basis and have been for several months now!

    Have you ever been banned in the past? (Forums & In-game)
    I have never been banned on the forums and have served 1 temp ban In-Game.
    The temp-ban is irrelevant to my currently playing experience and it is not a situation that I will ever be in again.

    Do you have any previous moderation experience?
    In the past I have Moderated servers and have also Owned a Server that never took off. Either way, these experiences have been learning curves and have given me a taste of moderation whilst also providing me with some essential experience.

    Do you meet the requirements for staff?
    Yes, I believe I do meet the requirements for staff! :happy:

    Thank you for taking the time to read my Staff Application, it is humbling to me if you have read this far.
    Any constructive criticism is much appreciated and will really help me throughout this process!

    Neutral for now, leaning towards support, I think your application is great, I honestly can’t judge your character based solely on your app though and as a skyblock player, I just don’t know you, I will keep an eye out for you and attempt to play economy more to see more of you in game. I wish you luck! and hope I see you soon in game.

    Well hello there! As I do not play over on .org at all I will be basing this of off your application and other activities only.

    First of all, your application is good! It seems as something I would expect of a new staff member, so that is all good.

    Next is your activity. I have never seen you helping anyone here on the forums or doing anything alike... I dont know if I am wrong in this. Also haven't seen you be very active on the SB discord server...

    Because of this I am going for neutral. If you increase your activity on the forums and on Discord I will change this to support.

    Support! You are an extremely kind person. We've only know each other for a month, probably less and you are one of the kindest, supportive and helpful people currently in my life.
    You have a strong application and you often help in chat and on Discord.
    Granted, things have happened online, but they have for all of us at some point. People disagree and that is natural because we are human. You are going to make mistakes but as long as you learn from them that's all that matters.
    Things have happened recently and put you into an impossible situation, yet you have strived to still be kind to people and be helpful online. This is the kind of thing we need in a Moderator.
    You are a passionate person and you do not stand up to injustice. You even have the guts to tell your friends when enough is enough, which some people find hard. This implies that if you do get moderator, you will not let friendships cloud your judgement.
    Craney, I support you all the way.
    Yes, you are not perfect, but nobody is. But I believe that you can use this as a way to strive forwards to become a better player but also a better person!
    The best of Luck with your application! I hope anyone reading this message will also consider the things I have stated about Craney and support him as well. :smilingimp::tongueclosed:

    Thank you, it means a lot! I am proactively trying to play on /skyblock more so I will keep an eye out for you and say Hi when I do see you! :)


    Thank you! That is certainly one of my aims moving forward, increasing my activity on discord & forums!


    Thank you Frez, this means a lot! ❤️

    Thank you Ursus! :)

    Support.

    You are really active on Skyblock, you are mature and kind. With these traits, you would be a good candidate for Helper.

    Good luck!

    Neutral/no support you thought some things incorrectly. You seem very nice and mature but I don’t think k I know you well enough to make a full judgement to raise my support.
    The ban is also not good.

    you said u joined .net in the release of Classic. But classic came before.

    Thank you Blender! <3

    Hey!
    If you'd like to expand on what you mean by "you thought some things incorrectly" it would really help me throughout this process! :)
    The ban was a while back now and things have moved on since

    I joined when it was .net, obviously things have changed since then but that was when I joined :)

    Hey Splat!
    When you said that I thought you meant regarding my application,
    If you want to discuss what happened with us cooping please feel free to drop me a message, I know things didn't work out when we were cooped but I don't want either of us to feel like we have been unfairly done to! Get in touch with me and we can sort things :)

    Support! I believe Craney would be a great candidate for moderator to help Bdark out on Economy with the moderation business. He is always friendly and upstanding and loves to have conversation with the players.

    Good luck Craney

    I can't say I know you or your traits well enough to rate a support, as I'm not an economy player.

    Neutral.

    Hiii Craney it's nice to see you apply again!

    The reason I gave you a neutral is because you keep on coming back then going inactive again which shows you aren't that much dedicated towards the server so I will be keep an eye on you for a while and support you once I think you'll be here for good.
