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 14 year old boy who lives in England - Oxford kind of area -meaning my time zone is BST but will later change to GMT as the year goes onwards. 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. In addition to this, I am attempting to teach myself Icelandic. 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. 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 and use Jing and Fraps for screen shorting as well. I also have a folder for F2 Minecraft screenshots if worst comes to worst. 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, so I have compiled a list of reasons and described each of 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#5931 which I check every 20-60 minutes, or quicker. I can be contacted though the Skyblock forums as well which I check once an hour until approximately 9:30pm - 10pm, where I will be active on forums and discord full time until 11pm at the earliest, or 2am 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, 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 when a new, not very good manager took over. 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. 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 the 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 very 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, which also took a lot of hard work to achieve. Another example me being dedicated to my work, is writing this application at 2:30 in the morning when I have school tomorrow. 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 (Just to clarify, I told Krissy I was innocent that time and she believed me and we had a right laugh about it). 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 over a year ago. 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. Do you meet the requirements to be staff? Yes 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 (edit}[note:] time zone changed from BST to GMT as of October 27th/2019 - clocks changed.
