    I thought I’d give it a shot. Please give me feedback on what I can do to improve and stuff.

    Your in-game name: K41YU

    K41YU - Minecraft Profile | NameMC


    What time zone are you in?
    UTC -8:00 | PST​


    What country do you live in?
    United States of America


    What languages do you speak?
    English


    Do you have 2FA enabled? Yes/No
    Yes.


    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? (i.e. recording software, screenshots, etc)
    I can take screenshots and upload them to my private Imgur account, as well as take videos on the spot with my laptop's built-in video recorder.


    Why do you think you should become a helper?

    Personality
    I’m a friendly, kind, laid back, silly, patient, understanding, and selfless. Because of my general personality, I’m approachable and not intimidating at all. Although I am laid back and silly, I know when to be serious and enforce rules.


    Helpful
    I do both public and private chat when helping. If someone initiates a private conversation with me, I tend to keep it that way and have one on one conversations when helping. I don’t want to look like I’m talking to myself and I think it makes it easier for the person to read and follow along with what I’m saying. Because of the one on one, it might not seem like I do much. However, if someone asks for help publicly, I do help publicly. When helping someone, I make sure that their questions are definitely answered. I know that players can have difficulties, such as having trouble reading chat, being slow to respond, being distracted, and whatever else there is, but I’m patient and I assist them until they are completely helped. I may not know literally everything, but I do learn new things about Skyblock little by little and I make sure to remember them so I can help others.


    Calm & Understanding
    I like to resolve problems as nicely and peacefully as possible, remaining calm and collected. I don’t like making an unnecessarily big deal about problems and I don’t like being way too serious and strict. I do not get annoyed or angry easily. I always try to understand and make up with others if I can, rather than immediately attacking someone or feeling negatively about the situation. I do understand in certain situations, rules are rules and I will follow the protocols, regardless of any personal feelings or how nice and lax I can be. If I am unsure or not confident about anything, I would communicate with more experienced team members to get some help.


    Trustworthy & Honest
    I am very trustworthy. I have been trusted on many different islands, and the most common reason is to help build since I have fly. I have been able to return any items that was given to me (accidentally or intentionally). I have enchanted/repaired armor, weapons, tools. I have moved spawners and changed their type for players who can’t do that. There were many times where people risked themselves by showing or paying me in-game items first before receiving their upgrades, but I always make sure to definitely complete what I promised.


    Active
    I‘m mostly active in game. I try my best to be attentive to in game chat so I can help others. Since the new servers came out, I sometimes hop around between net, org, and classic, but I am mostly on net since that's where I started. I’ll work on hopping around more, I sometimes see the other servers lacking mods when something happens. I am definitely active on the forums. I may not post tons on the forums, but I do read it often. Also the same on Discord chat. For Discord, I’m a silent stalker. Sometimes I answer a question in help chat, but since there’s already mods to do their job, I just read it only to be educated on things I didn’t know before. Most of the time, I’m just asking for help or reporting something. I don’t read general chat, and I don’t really have conversations on it. However, I’m willing to work on reading general chat more to help moderate it. I can also work on actually engaging in conversations in general if that kind of activity what’s needed. I do interact with players in game and on the forums, so at least I’m involved with the community that way.


    Quick
    I can get on the server very quickly since I have a fast laptop. I was curious and I did a test and timed myself from turning on and booting up the laptop, logging into my desktop, opening Minecraft, loading Forge, and entering the server. All of that only took me about a minute only. I think this is a good thing to have as sometimes, I’ve seen mods being away (Ex: school) or struggling with their computers and saying they would have to come later and etc.


    How long can you be active on the server everyday?
    I did get busy for a bit in fall 2018, but I sorted things out. I’m starting to increase activity once again, and right now, I can come on any time since I’m mostly home. Of course, I do have a life outside of Minecraft, so sometimes I have to do work, chores, errands, things to attend to, eating, sleeping etc. But feel free to see if I’m available and ask me to come online (using Discord) if the server needs someone on in a minute or less.


    How long have you been playing Skyblock?
    About half a year.


    Have you ever been banned in the past (Forums & In-game)

    Nope.


    Do you have any past experience as a moderator?
    Yes, I've been a moderator twice for other Minecraft servers. The first server is closed down and the second server is just really tiny (15-20 capacity) and dead so I quit that place after a while. I know a lot of commands, and I have worked with a bunch of plugins, but I may need some relearning to do, as permissions/plugins/commands and vary from server to server. Outside of Minecraft, I train and handle dogs. I've dealt with all types of personalities, shy, stubborn, aggro, etc. I've learned how to be patient and figure out different ways to train them as not all of them will process training similarly.

    Do you meet the requirements for staff? Yes/No
    Yes.

    50 Post Count ☑ (I am aware I just hit it and I will post more of course. I do not post excessively, but I do read the forums often.)

    Two Factor Authentication ☑

    2 Weeks registered on the Skyblock forums ☑

    I have Discord (Kei#9539). ☑

    So since im the first comment, youll see this one often. I dont think i need to comment again. Heres a few things that would nudge me towards a support for you:
    -150+ posts on forums
    -and qualitative posts rather than watered down posts mainly

    -being more interactive with the chat
    -not just helping but contributing to a conversation as well.
    -simply communication with others is very important for the brain as well as building up a reputation for yourself in terms of knowing what type of person you are

    -activity
    -not only do i not see you in chat enough to assess yourself but also not even online enough.
    -----------------------------------------
    Overall its a N/A rating. Nothing yet. So ill call it neutral. For now

    Neutral,
    I do not see you on discord often and part of being a helper is to be active on all three platforms of skyblock.
    You are nice and your activity is reasonable but I don't see you helping very much.
    In all, try to be more active on all the platforms and Good Luck! :)

    Okay, I’ll work on being on Discord more. But what specifically? Talking in general or helping more on help chat?

    Yeah, definitely timezone issues. But I do try to be on often on my timezone.

    please fix the font on the questions there.
    I think you don’t have that much messages here on forums as I get no supported on my first application ;) . I have never seen you much on discord as well. But this is things you can work on :D. But you are really kind and honest when I speak to you.
    No support for now, work on this things and I change to neutral:)

    Honestly I dont believe I have ever see you online before and you're only a few hours behind me time zone wise. For that reason, I can not support you at this time.

    No support, because you are inactive in-game and it's not because of timezones since we live in the same timezones. You also haven't been active enough on forums. And for the few times I have seen you online, you aren't helpful.

    Perhaps I’m not very uh...public enough? Like being very obvious and noticeable about everything I do. I silently read chat then when I help, sometimes I just go and help without announcing to the entire world about it or making it clear someone had responded to the person in need. Sometimes my thank you’s seem like random thank you’s in chat or they’re private if we were privately talking. All I’ve got to back me up is a sign wall on my old island (my alt owns it now) with all the people I’ve helped thanking me. I did not place any of the signs myself and it could be logged to confirm it being placed by unique players. I’ll try to be more obvious then if you want me to show that.
    Okay, I’ll work on being on general.

    I don't think you are online often enough or active in chat. Helping in private is great! But that also leaves us with no way to know if you are really helping or not. Best of luck, neutral for now.

    No support at the minute.

    0 The minimum messages to apply is 50. You're on 61 at the time of making this. Be a lot more active in the forums.
    o I know your username, so how come I don't see you that much?

    O Overall, be more active. In-game and on the forums.

    Get around 100 messages and be more active in-game and I will full support.

    Neutral for now. You were always friendly, but I feel like since you applied your personality changed completely. Don't get me wrong, it's great that you are helping out players, but you should't do it just for the sake of your application. I assure you that if I keep seing you help out players I'll change this to a support.

    I don't mean to come off that way. I do like helping others regardless of applying or not. Ever since I submitted, I have been trying to take what others have said into consideration. You're right, I won't deny that it has changed me personality wise. It made me come off as doing this just for the sake of the application and I apologize for that. But I won't give up, I'll continue helping out players and I'll try to be myself more.

    lmao being active doesn’t mean posting every other second, i don’t think people understand that.

    like i used to post 24/7, way more than some mods at the time and was far more talkative but it doesn’t mean they weren’t active like they’re just not obnoxious like me lmaooo

    support. yr a sweetheart

    So, following up on my original reply, i stated that i dont exactly have a stance for you.
    Im going to say im leaning towards a support. Ive seen growth in activity, and though your forums post count does not define your forums activity, i think you should get more involved in the community and participate here a bit more. I also have fair reason to believe you are in fact often helping others in PMs as well. I wish you the best of luck :D
