Hello everyone, I would just like to start this off with saying I appreciate you taking a look at my application and I am looking forward to hearing your feedback. If you're going to leave a rating, I would appreciate you reading this application before leaving your rating. I would also appreciate leaving the reasoning why! Accepting all feedback in the comments below and I thank each of you for reading my application Your in-game and discord tag: My Current In-Game name is TheEpicEmerald, nicknamed (Emerald). My Discord tag is Vince#7085. My Discord tag might change at times due to Discord Nitro, but I am able to update my tag wherever needed (such as forums). What time zone are you in: I am currently in Eastern Standard Time (EST) of U.S.A., that does not plan on changing anytime soon. Can you speak any additional languages: I speak and understand fluent English and I am able to understand intermediate Spanish. I am also able to translate and speak some German. Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? I currently have downloaded, Gyazo, Minecraft Screenshots, Fraps, and other recording devices for capturing evidence. Any other capturing devices needed I will be able to download. How long can you be active on our platforms everyday? I am able to be active on all platforms for a majority of the day. I have always been an active player in the past, besides taking a break, when it comes to In-Game, Forums, and Discord. While I currently do not chat on the Skyblock discord that often currently, I am able to do so and become a lot more active on that platform. On weekdays I am able to be on from after school until the nighttime, I am mostly active throughout the whole day and I am also active in chat which is important, as I see all of the messages that are being sent in chat. Any forums or discord notifications I will receive an alert from so I am always able to keep up on things. As I am currently in my last year of school, this summer and onward I will have a lot of free time when this school year ends and I am looking forward to being more active in the summertime. Since the writing of this application, I was able to improve on my Discord usage and am looking to play on the economy server more frequently. When did you first join Skyblock? I started playing Classic since the end of 2013 until the new Skyblock released and I also played economy during it's prime. I joined the new Skyblock server when it first started, where I was active on there for a little while but I decided to take a break from Minecraft in general for about 2 years. I started playing again around ago and I decided I wanted to come back to Skyblock as I have had a lot of more free time lately. I plan on being active every day, with getting on at least one time a day insuring everything is running smoothly. I am still learning tiny bits and pieces of information as the time passes, but I have general knowledge of every rule on the server, as well as the commands and how the community runs. Have you ever been banned on any platform? I have been banned on Classic for a few small things, which you can look at my old application as they are stated there. They were very small offensives so I did not decide to list them here as those were about 6-7 years ago. However, in 2020 I decided to give my entire Minecraft account away when I decided I wanted to stop playing and the player of my account broke some rules on the servers and got the account permanently banned. That banned has been appealed for however, and the account has since been unbanned. Do you have any past moderation experience? I have had past moderation experiences on a few small servers when I used to play back in 2014-2015. However, I have had past Trial-Moderator and Full-Moderator experience on the Skyblock staff team and I was a very active member of it on all platforms. My Discord usage was a lot stronger back then that it is now, as I lost my social-elitist rank and I am not able to obtain it back. I was also a Discord Moderator for a period of time in 2018 and was very active on there insuring the Discord was running smooth. While I stopped playing the server, I did keep my activity on the forums and that has been a very active platform for me to keep up with. Since then, there has been a lot of growth and changes done that some of you guys have yet to see, and I would really like to prove that I am able to fulfill this position in a finer more sophisticated way. I did not meet some of your expectations in the past and I apologize for any damage that has been done from any of you. In a sort of way, this statement here is an apology, but it is also a message to show that things have changed with time and I would really like to exceed the expectations. For this reason, I can and am able to meet all expectations that are needed, but I want to meet those expectations on my own even if they aren't needed. I understand if some of you guys need some time for me to show you this progression, and I am willing to be patient for any cause. Why do you think you should become a staff member? I believe I should become a part of the staff team is because I would like to make Skyblock a better place for everyone. I am able to enforce the needed punishments for each player, and I am able to get online if I get a message on forums or Discord, or if there is a problem. However, I am on the server most of the time so that would not be frequent that someone would have to message me on a third-party application. Helping anyone I can makes me feel like I have accomplished something positive and have provided some more ease into someone's life, and I am happy to spread that onto this platform. When it comes to a certain situation between players, I am able to put any issue to a stop while keeping professionalism. Even if I am not online on the server, I still tend to find ways to help out on either the Discord or the forums for any player in need. It's not something I want, but it's something that I do as it is my personality. If granted this position, I am able to expand my capabilities, as well as the amount of players I would be able to help. I have past and current knowledge of all of the rules and regulations of the server. I have re-read them since and while most of them still apply, there are some new ones that I understand. While there being a new Helper rank, I understand the new role and it's difference between the Trial-Moderator role. While I was on the staff team, I have complete knowledge of all of the in-game, forums, and discord commands and permissions of being a member on the staff team while needing to have a little refresh. Some rules have changed on the server such as lava and sand trading becoming legal. These rules can change at anytime and I am able to keep up with the pace of the rule changing. I love to interact with the community on all platforms and that has always been my favorite thing about the server, is the community. I would also like to prove to the community that I am capable of this position again. I feel like a lot has changed in a few years, between people and the servers in general, the server is in a brighter place than it use to be and I would like to keep that continuing. I feel like my growth as a human being has really surprised me myself, and I am really happy on the person that I am today and I've only progressed. Regardless of how I have moderated in the past, if a future role is applied, I am fully capable of all of the current expectations of what it means to be a staff member and a part of the staff team. Times have changed, the team has changed, and the server has changed. I would like this to be a fresh start, but that is not exactly possible and I really have to prove myself to the community, which I feel is the most important part. I feel like my biggest struggle was my maturity level, and I would really like to prove that that has changed over time and I've learned basic life living skills and have applied them. Information I am an unbiased player, but also an unbiased person in general so I am capable of making these decisions. Since my past moderation role, I have matured greatly as I am currently 18 years old right now graduating High School this year. My knowledge of what is and not acceptable is a lot stronger than what it use to be and my communication skills to people have also grown. I have a complete better understanding of all of the functional parts of what it is of being part of the staff team. I can come across as very-friendly, but I will also always be honest and tell the truth, while being respectful and I caring for everyone around me. Making sure the people around me are doing well. I am able to type very fast, which I believe is always a good quality when it comes to anything like this. I am able to respond to messages in game quick and I have an open on on the fast-moving chat.. I am able to pick up any old/new information on the way very easily, and can understand it after learned. I would also like to mention some things about me in real life. I am currently looking to apply to college next year and being able to finish my last year of high school successfully, and I have applied my changes to in real life situations. Currently, I am looking to work in a field along the lines of technology programming or something that could fit under that category. Do you meet the requirements for staff? Yes, I currently meet all of the requirements for staff and I have 2fa enabled on all necessary platforms Thank you for taking your time to read this, and feel free to leave your feedback!
