Introduction My name is GangstaPancake, also known as Pancake or Mizzo. I am a regular /skyblock player who used to be very fond of /classic. Over the past couple of years, I have taken a large break from Skyblock but returned a few months ago. I took that time to mature, learn, and focus on school studies. I am applying for a position on Skyblock in hopes to help out the community. I appreciate all your feedback and will take consider everything in regards to becoming a better staff member.

Skyblock gave me a place to be creative, connect with people all around the globe, interact with others, and build up my social skills. Less of the chit chat, here are a few of the reasons I believe I should become a staff member on Skyblock: Dedicated and committed When it comes to staffing and most other things in my life that I strongly enjoy, I am a very dedicated and committed person. I strive to be as dedicated as I can and never give up until I have achieved my goals. Staffing on skyblock is without a doubt one of my goals. As a staff member, I would aim to be as dedicated to the server as possible, spending most of my free time on it and constantly keeping the community safe. This is a huge trait in a staff member as they have to be willing to put in the time and effort required to fulfill their duties. Outgoing and approachable In both real life and in front of a screen, I try to be as accepting and approachable as possible to all people. I consider myself to be quite a friendly person who is always there when you need it. This is a massive role a staff member must make as it makes the players feel more open to coming to you for assistance. I am always willing to do my very best to help people and keep an open mind in all situations. Australian and active Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi. If there is one thing the staff team is lacking, it is a variety of staff in all different locations. Being an Australian, I am often on when others may not be available. I am also always trying to be as active as I can, if and when I can. Being Australian, I am able to be there to help the people in need as proactively as I can. Mature Maturity is a very controversial trait as people may see themselves as mature but others may not. Personally, I see myself to be a reasonably mature and respectful person who has control over their emotions and the words that come out of their mouths. To my friends and family, I might be seen in differently but when I am in public including being online, I aim to be as mature and appropriate as I can. Being mature is something that every staff member should have as without it they cannot be seen as role models to others which they often are. Honesty If there is one ethically challenging topic, it is lying. Often people are put in the position where they lie to protect themselves, their friends, their family, etc. I am a very honest person and as a staff member, you should always aim to tell the truth 100% of the time and it is an important quality one must inherit. Understanding Often there is more than meets the eye to people and situations. I try to see through that and be as welcoming and understanding to all as I can. You never know how somebody is feeling and what their lives are like outside of the online world and that is why I have learnt to be understanding and respectful as I can. This is an important quality for a staff member as it helps them better apprehend people and situations. Teamwork I see myself to be a very cooperative person who works well with those around me. Working in a team is so important to staff as you need to work together and connect with one another. Communication is another important part of teamwork because you need to be able to properly convey each other. You need the team to make a staff team and without it, it wouldn’t be a team at all. -=- Despite all these reasons, one stands out the most, and that is my love for helping people. 2 or so years ago my mother volunteered to help with a support shelter for homeless people operation. I went along to a few of the meetings and that truly opened my eyes. The sheer overwhelming situation of homelessness bought tears to my eyes and since then helping people has been what I aim to do. ● How active can you be daily? ● I always strive to be on for a minimum of an hour each day. Here is an approximate schedule: -=- Monday – Up to 4+ hours Tuesday – Up to 4+ hours Wednesday – Up to 4+ hours Thursday – Up to 5+ hours Friday – Up to 5+ hours Saturday – Up to 6+ hours Sunday – Up to 6+ hours -=- Please note: These are only approximate hours and often they may change due to personal reasons such as family commitments, homework, holidays, etc. The times could be less or more than promised. ● How long have you been playing skyblock? ● Originally, I played on my older sister's account in 2014 and then migrated to this account in 2016. I have been playing for upwards of 6 years with a few breaks here and there. ● Have you ever been banned in the past (Forums & In-game)? ● I have never been banned/muted on neither the forums nor in-game. ● Do you have any previous moderation experience? ● I have taken up many positions on many servers. I have held the responsibility of roles such as helper, moderator, administrator, manager, and once owner. I have never moderated a larger sized server such as this one but have experience in basic commands such as, /warn, /mute, /tempmute, /tempban, /ban, etc. I have also learnt how to use them and have a pretty good idea of when it is appropriate to use them. None of these servers are online anymore due to a variety of different reasons however throughout the few years of experience, I have learnt and gained a lot. I've also worked on a few larger sized discord and used to moderate/help on one that now has over 28,000 members on it. However, i have retired from working on any servers including discord to focus my attention on the lovely skyblock community! ● Do you meet the requirements for staff? ● Yes, as stated at the beginning of my staff application, I meet all the requirements for the Skyblock staff team. -=- I would like to end my application by thanking every single one of you who have taken the time to thoroughly read my application. I hope after reading this you see me as an appropriate staff team who will benefit the server. I appreciate all and every comment and piece of feedback I get. Thanks a million!
