    IGN?
    My ign is ebagcoder. I picked ebagcoder because i like to code and ebag is my name backwards. If you did figure it out my name is Gabe.

    Time Zone?
    My time zone is est -5. I live in the united states on the east coast.

    Country?
    I live in the United States of America on the east coast

    Languages?
    I speak english and a little bit of spanish. I know the basics of spanish and I am learning more in my spanish.

    2Fa?
    I have 2fa enabled. See photo attached.

    Evidence Capturing?
    I have a recording software that somewhat works and i can take screenshots. When I get my computer fixed i will be using obs. I have onedrive and google drive. I also have my phone for photos and videos if none of my software is working.

    Why I think I should be a Staff Member?
    Reason 1: To help Eco:

    When ever i am on I hardly ever see staff on. The only seen two staff on and noobcrew. Since I play on eco alot i could help moderate it. I want to make eco fair or all players.
    Reason 2: I know how to moderate:
    As stated in later a question I have run a server before. I have also moderated on a couple of servers run by my friends.
    Reason 3: Well know/Liked:
    I am liked and well known because I donate to people that need money i give items to people. I also give back to other people by doing upgrades for cheap and sometimes free. I also am kind everyone, I stand up if people are getting picked on. I also help new players when they lose their starting items.
    Reason 4: I am mature:
    Despite being young (14) I am very mature. I matured a lot from running a server. I had to learn quickly that you have to be strict about rules. I also learned that there is a time and place to be silly and funny.
    Reason 5: I can learn fast:
    I can adapt if needed to the rules. I can also learn anything needed to do my job better.
    Reason 6: I work well with others:
    I am able to work with others even if I disagree with them or their ideas. I flexible so i can go with other ideas. I can also adapt my schedule a little bit if needed.
    How Active I am?
    I have been active everyday for a couple of months. I will not be on as much for a while because of school. But I should still be able to play. I was not active that much before a few months ago because of boy scouts, cross country, and school. I listed approximate times these might change and i might be able to play long or at different times. I will not be as active as I was this summer i am in school. I also have sports everyday after school.
    Times I can be On

    *subject to change*

    Monday 21:00-22:30

    Tuesday 20:00-20:30,21:00-22:30

    Saturday 21:15-23:00

    Sunday 21:00-23:15

    *Weekends are on and off during the day*

    *Weekdays I can sometimes be on ~14:40-16:00*

    How long have I been playing SkyBlock?
    I have been playing skyblock for about 6 years on and off. I've played on skyblock.net for about a year.

    Banned?
    I have not been banned in game or on the forums. Nor have I been kicked or muted by staff.

    Previous Experience?
    Yes I do have previous moderation experience I used to co-own a minecraft server. We would get an average of 30 people. The server went down about a year ago when I could not pay for the server. I have also been a mod on a couple of my friends servers.

    Yes I meet the requirements for staff.

    You barely meet the requirements. Be more active on forums before making a serious application for staff. No support.

    Yeah, but my point is you could show how active you can be before applying. You’ve applied at 50 posts which makes you look inactive however long you may have been registered to forums.

    Most people apply when they’re well over 250 posts.

    Absolutely no need for this. Just say that you live in the EST time zone and move on. This is a staff application, not a geography lesson.

    I don't believe I've ever seen you online before (we're in the same time zone), therefore I haven't seen you help at all. I'm going to say no support for now because I don't really see anything moderator-like about you (not really sure how to explain it). Good luck.

    I've been expecting this app (Usually when a user comes out of nowhere and starts posting many threads, they are about to apply). First of all, welcome to the forums. I don't think we've ever spoken before, which may be a bad sign. Unfortunately, I am not able to play at the moment, since my laptop is broken. Therefore, I have no idea whether you help in-game or not. So neutral, for now. However, I'd like to point some things out.
    Exactly. I know you meet the 2-week requirement, but tbf I think one month is a very short time. You should stick around for some more time.
    Also, take some time to get to know the rules. For example, no double posting:
    Also, about this:
    I believe that if Fatal needs to look at the tab list when he's on in order to realise whether or not you are online, it is more than probable that you are not helping. Of course, I'm not saying you should be talking in chat every 0.2 seconds, but it is very weird that he's never seen you help if you guys have been online together at the same time.

    I didn't mean to double post i was responding to a message and a new one came in while I was typing.
    I have only seen fatal on once or twice. When im only i usually help people. I donate to new people i support people if they lose their items I donate money to people. I try my best to help every1 when I can.

    I know gramer and spelling isn’t a big deal but really? You couldn’t just spell you or are, these are signs of immaturity and unprofessionalism. It also appears that maybe you don’t know or can’t take screenshots, moderator should be able to quickly screenshot something in a hurry if needed. Your application is very dull bland and poorly written at least as a tad of color and fix the font
    Good luck:)
    As just reading the comment above I also noticed you double posted but your explanation to it isn’t the best you could of just replied to the other comment since you say it come in as you were responding to the other one

    I do know how to take screenshots it's just that my computer is old and my wifi is bad so it takes a while to upload files and to download files so i take them on my phone and post them. I will take screen shots when i get my new computer

    No worries, it can happen to anyone. But keep in mind for next time that you can edit your post if you need to change something or reply to somebody else.

    Neutral. I see about every post you have on the forums. You have a lot of ideas! but In game not as much, i can see why as i don't play Eco as much. You application is different, consisting of Parts that should be longer shorter and parts that should be a simple answer huge. I.E. the time zone is a paragraph, but the previous experience is 2 sentences. The application also is empty, like no personal detail,

    I'm on pretty regularly tbh

    Also, moderating isn't just about donating your items to other people. I mean, sure, it shows you're generous but there's a lot more to it.

    Firstly I want to commend the applicant for the mature and humble way he has responded and handled the criticism and advice he was given despite the clear harsh tone he has been receiving.

    Barely any feedback on this application pertains to his actions in game. Why come to give feedback on applicants that you don't have any information on. It isn't valuable information in selecting staff. We can already see what happens on the forums too. We know how difficult it is to gain post count in a legitimate manner these days and understand not all people learn about or want the forums until they want to gain staff or be more involved in the server. Yes, applying when you meet the requirements above and beyond is helpful but these days its a little different considering the circumstance.

    The applicant made some errors in his application but has fixed them on advice by people here. They have also demonstrated maturity by listening and learning from the community.
    The generosity of the player should be noted. While being a mod isn't about charity, being given iron for a bucket and obsidian for new lava or cobble to start building, it can be the difference between someone leaving or staying. So staff who can keep players happy are valuable too.
    Help doesn't have to be broadcast to confirm a players helpfulness. It isn't as if players sit monitoring every applicant's moves to detect helpfulness. Actions speak louder than words as they say.

    My advice,
    Help people in the way that you like, not the way that everyone says you have to. Keep giving people items, keep being friendly.
    From what was said people feel like you should help more. Keep this in mind and help others well. Report when necessary
    Lastly, i'd consider changing the how often can you be online section. Since minecraft is a game the times you are online may vary. All we need to know is how often you intend to be on each day approximately.

    Good Luck

    As I don't play Economy often or at all, I can't say much.

    You're a new member with a low post count, which gives the aura of low experience with the forums and being quite a new member to not only the forums, but the server itself.

    The phrase "If I had known the forums had existed earlier, I'd have been here earlier" is quite irrelevant as its literally spammed by Announcer ever 30 seconds, and the forums is linked to every vote page as well. The fact that you applied right when you hit 50 posts also suggests that you just joined the forums to apply for a mod position, and promotions only happen to people who are highly spoken, extremely active, genuinely care for the server, and only (really) if there's a lot of positive activity on their app, which you, currently, aren't getting.

    Play and be active for at least another 9 or so months and you'll be considered, to say the least.

    For me right now: no support.

    (sorry if this sounds harsh, but there's no other way to put it for me at least).

    I'm not saying you're lying, but if you have any evidence can you post it? If not then it's perfectly fine. Again, I'm not saying you're lying!
