    Hello, my name is Togpuss and today I will be applying for staff on skyblock.net.

    My IGN/In game name:
    My full in game name is Togpuss although people often refer to me as Tog or ‘Puss.

    What is your location and time zone?
    I am a 15 year old boy who lives in England - sandwiched in between Oxford and London- meaning my time zone is BST but will later change to GMT as the years progress.

    What languages do you speak?
    My first language is English - for clear reasons, but I also know enough German to have a good conversation, and also know some French as well. In addition to this, I am attempting to teach myself Icelandic- not that that will be much use when talking to the average person on Skyblock.

    Do you have 2FA Enabled?
    Of course I have 2FA enabled! I am a very secure person and have 2FA on almost everything that I have a login to accompanied by a secure password.

    Do you have the necessary means of capturing devices? (i.e recording software, screenshots, etc.)
    Yes. I use Fraps Premium, OBS studio, and Jing for recording, while I use Jing and Fraps for taking screenshots as well. I also have a folder for F2 Minecraft screenshots if worst comes to worst. I'm also considering purchasing a capture/streaming card for a future gaming PC build.

    Why do you think you should become a staff member?
    I think I should become a staff member on Skyblock for a range of different reasons, thus I have compiled a list of reasons and described each of them in as much detail as possible.

    Helpful
    Let’s start with possibly the most important one. This seems like quite a basic one. Players tend to look for staff members if they’re in need of help. Helping people just so happens to be one of my best traits as well! In both real life, and in Minecraft, I do as much as I can to help those players in need - whether it’s for building, guidance, or just the kid next to me asking for my maths homework, I’ll always be willing to help them as I love making people happy and often feel satisfied with myself afterwards. As well as helping, I enjoy teaching and showing people how to do things. I have been complimented many times on my good teaching skills and would be delighted to share my knowledge with others about pretty much anything as well as learning things from other people.

    High Activity Levels
    The title speaks for itself really. I’m usually quite active on the server but really active over discord or on forums. If not online, I can be contacted through discord: Togpuss#4868 which I check every 10-20 minutes, if not less. I can be contacted though the Skyblock forums as well which I check every 10-30 minutes until approximately 10:30pm, where I will be active on forums and discord full time until 11pm at the earliest, or 3am at the latest.

    Experienced
    I have been on the skyblock server since the very start of ClassicSB as a little green bean when the server struggled to get more than thirty players online at one time during the week days (This was around late 2013/early 2014 to my knowledge) meaning that I have seen quite a lot in my years. I also used to joint own a small factions server that rarely reached over fifteen players online at one single time where I gained moderation experience by catching hackers, or any other people who broke the rules. Sadly, that server project was seemingly abandoned despite the fact that it is draining £40/month out of the other owner’s bank account. I was also a moderator in a different server which did Factions, Skyblock, and KitPvP, until I decided to resign after a new manager that I disagreed with took over. I have moderation experience on several other servers that I have not listed above:

    • I was previously a moderator for a server called 'SailorsMC' (Effectively an average Skyblock server but with an ocean instead of void) which was Co-Owned by another notorious member of the Skyblock community.
    • I have been a moderator for another Skyblock server owned by the same people as the one above.
    • I have had previous helper experience on a server owned by someone that goes by the name of 'Haku'. (KitPvP and Skyblock server) Server name changed frequently.
    • I have had previous helper experience on a server by the name of 'Tazzy Factions' although has recently been renamed to 'Universal Factions' I believe.
    • I am currently a server moderator on a mini games server called 'CookieMC'.
    As well as in game moderation experience, I have experience moderating discord servers. I have moderated in many 100+ member servers therefore will only list the biggest three.
    • Currently own a Pokecord discord server which had more than 4000 members (dropped slightly).
    88EA18E6-AE93-439E-8856-59FAE2B6B2DF.png
    • Previously a moderator for a Pokecord server with 3000 members before being promoted to senior moderator, admin, then co-owner. Server soon after deleted by discord after the owner attempted to sell Pokecord items for PayPal (disobeyed ToS).
    • Previously a helper on a YouTuber's server with 25,000 members. Resigned after raids became common.

    Mature
    I believe that I am very mature for my age. I know I can be slightly immature around friends but I’m sure I can refrain from showing that side of me while working as a Helper or a Moderator on Skyblock.

    Serious
    At times, I can be deadly serious serious if I need to be- but I promise you, I also have a great sense of humour and can be very funny at times. So you can laugh around with me all that you like. I would also consider myself a very professional person.

    Unbiased and Understanding
    I am understanding and never judge anyone, no matter what the situation is. If I were staff, I would always find solutions to problems and listen to not one side of the argument; but both sides of the argument to ensure that no one’s side of a story is getting left out. I would treat everyone equally, even my best friends and completely value everyone’s opinions- making sure not to ever skip to my own judgments no matter what. I am a very honest person too and will do anything in my power to find and tell the real truth.

    Hardworking and not lazy
    I am very hard working in Minecraft and even more hard working in real life. I have always set myself targets for pretty much everything and as a result of my hard working, I am doing relatively well at school. I am the complete opposite of lazy both physically and mentally. Mentally, I never take the easiest or do the bare minimum of everything, and physically; I am a regional Squash player with a top 250 ranking in my country, which also took a lot of hard work to achieve. I am currently going through my Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award [edit: currently postponed due to Covid-19] and dedicate myself to complete the gold award.
    Being a staff member on skyblock would give me a big opportunity to show this in game.

    Generous
    I don’t stand for scamming and would be happy to refund some scams out of my own stash of rares. I would not be able to do his often, since I am not the richest person on skyblock, but I will happily refund some things if needed.


    Friendly
    I love making friends so would always be happy to make some more. I am quite sociable and I love meeting new people and making new friends!

    Quick Typer
    Typing quickly has many good benefits. It allows you to reply to messages as quick as possible. I am a very quick typer meaning I would be able to reply to people as quick abs possible.

    Have you ever been banned in the past?
    Sadly, I have. Once in ClassicSB by Krissy for 24 hours for ‘Griefing’ (After the person who reported me framed me as they told me in a Skype chat to break his banners for him) - Didn’t make a forums ban appeal as it was such a short ban, although to this day both the “victim” and I are aware it was not deserved.

    I also got banned by Myrmidous for advertising a different server on my private discord server but was unbanned almost instantly when he found out it had nothing to do with this server, and that I was in fact innocent.

    All of this was 2-5 years ago and I believe I have had enough time to reflect on my actions since then.

    I recently (Early May 2020) received a requested ban on one of my alternative accounts by Kerahna and Southwark.


    Do you have any previous experience?
    See the section named ‘Experienced’.

    How long can you be online per day?

    Active Time
    Monday- 2-5 hours
    Tuesday- 2-3 hours
    Wednesday- 2-5 hours
    Thursday- 2-3 hours
    Friday- 2-3 hours
    Saturday and Sunday- 3-12 hours
    Holidays- 4-12 hours

    **Active on discord and forums 6-12 hours per day day, depending on weekends, weekdays, and holidays.**
    Note: Times may vary depending on school work.

    Known Commands:
    /kick [Player] [Reason]
    /mute [Player] [Reason]
    /tempmute [Player] [Time][Timeform] [Reason]
    /ban [Player] [Reason]
    /tempban [Player] [Time] [Timeform] [Reason]

    I know many others but I highly doubt they will be needed as a Helper or a Moderator. I am also aware of the physics of “Log-block” as I used similar plugins as a staff member on other servers, although I may need reminding of these.

    Do you meet the requirements to be staff?
    I believe so.

    I would like to thank you all for reading my application, it would mean so much to me to be on the skyblock staff team and has been on of my dreams for a long while now. I would really appreciate if you supported me but I understand if you don’t feel that I am quite ready yet, thanks.

    -Togpuss

    Hey togpuss, I will be going neutral for now. Your a very kind person but I just don't see you helping a lot on all 3 platforms, I also think you should work a bit more on your maturity and professionalism.
    I will reconsider my status when I feel you have improved
    Good luck :)

    Known commands is a good thing to have in an application. It means you don’t have to learn as much as moderator. Read some other applications and I’m sure you will find a lot like that.

    I’ll try to work on that, thanks for the feedback! :)

    This is a staff app, not an inside joke. Stuff like this is completely unnecessary.

    There are just a couple bits in your application that stick out because the comments are very immature. No support, I don’t think you currently know enough about the server.

    Neutral, Although i'm not active on the server often, you lack activity, and even if you do eventually get on, it would be a matter of time before you'd log off and go somewhere else.

    But that out of the way, I'd think you'll be able to get the role eventually.

    Good luck Buddy.

    I’m back on Skyblock for good. I have been very active online recently on both the game, discord, and forums. I only went in the first place because of a school work haul that I didn’t prepare for in time. I’ve learned I should do my school work now as soon as possible, so I don’t get panicked again. At the moment, all work is under control, and it should stay that way for at least another year from now; even then, I’ve promised myself not to leave homework and assignments to the night before meaning That everything should be good even in a years time.

    Hey Tog,

    Glad to see you applying for the server but I will rate it neutral leaning towards no support for now.

    Firstly, Your application looks great, maybe too many personalities, too many of them make it "unbelievable".

    Additionally, 6-18 hours on forums/discord seems to be unbelievable too, I bet you do other things than just sitting on discord and forums all day long without taking any breaks then sleeping.

    Finally, I think you could help and be more active in-game, not saying you aren't active or you aren't helping but you could do it more frequently, since that's what we need at the moment, active staff members.

    Kind regards,
    Oak

    Hey Oak, thanks so much for the feedback. I spend a lot of time on forums and discord as I would consider myself 'nocturnal' meaning I can go to sleep at 3am and not be tired when I wake up a couple of hours later. As stated in my application, unless it is at night, I’m not on discord or forums fulltime but do check them very often. I am working on my activity levels. Only the second week of the school year so had to recap on last years subjects. Now I have done that work, I can be active a lot more in game. Thanks again.

    Ye but still you are not online 6 hours in total, maybe you check time to time 6 hours straight, better to type "a few hours, I check forums and discord frequently" or something like that. Also, I can't judge you how active you will be in the next 4 weeks, I can only judge you how you've been in the past few months, hope you understand. Edit: You shouldn't disagree with criticism, take it as advice and learn instead. I've made that mistake too, so instead of rating it "disagree" take it as advice and learn :D

    Hi Tog.

    I really enjoyed reading your application.
    I am on the verge of neutral / support.

    I know you have recently just returned from a long absence and I feel you might need a few more months of getting back into the community until you’re ready.

    Kind regards and best wishes

    Hey, you're a very nice person! Like I told you in our private conversation last night the 6-18 hours seems unlikely. I'd say go with like 12 hours max, since you wont't be looking at forums and discord every second of the day.
    I've seen you helping out a lot, but maybe you try too hard? I'm sure you are doing it out of good intentions but make it more natural putting too much effort into something can work against you.
    I will go with neutral for now and will come back to this application when my opinion changes.:)

    Thanks for the feedback Teeler. I didn't mean for it to be taken that way and I know I would never be able to refund more valuable items, but would happily give compensation.

    Thanks for the feedback. I edited it to 6-12 hours on forums.

    all useless parts of your application
    how would this help with you being a staff member?

    remove the useless parts that don't need to be included in a application.

    Many thanks for the feedback.
    Serious: You can’t joke around all the time and have to be serious at times.
    Generous: Shows dedication to the server and being a staff member.
    Quick Typer: Not slow at getting back to people/replying to messages.
    Known commands: Helpful to know from previous experiences.
