    Before I do this, let me get a few things off my chest, and talk about what happened.
    I was banned from the discord for a very serious infringement. It may be too early to reapply, but I deeply regret those actions. I understand that what I did was wrong. I hope to regain everyone’s trust, however long that takes.

    Your in-game name:
    Yes, Mr. Wise Guy has changed his username again. I changed my username from __Parrot__ to Storm_Striker_ again. For a list of my previous usernames, please click the link shown here: Storm_striker_ - Search | NameMC


    What time zone are you in?
    Due to Daylight Savings Time, I'm in Central Daylight Time, In a UTC time zone, it is UTC-(05:00)

    What country do you live in?
    I live in the United States of America.

    What languages do you speak?
    I speak fluent English, and Spanish, and I speak basic Italian, German, and Korean. I will give examples below via a spoiler.


    Is Two-Factor Authentication enabled?
    Yes, I have it enabled through Google Authenticator.

    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? (i.e. recording software, screenshots, etc)?
    Yes, I do. I have GeForce and Streamlabs to make my images clearer, OBS to record video, and Gyazo to take screenshots and GIFs.

    Why do you think you should become a helper?
    The main key to a helper application, this question. I believe I have what it takes to be a helper, despite being in a slump the past few weeks. I listed some up in the beginning, but I will list the traits I, and other people think I am.

    Mature -
    Now you may be saying, ¨Nah, he isn´t mature. Didn´t this guy just get unbanned?
    Yes, you are correct I was banned. The reason for my ban was immature. Sometimes people make mistakes though, even really bad ones like mine. But, I am mature. Extremely for my age. Now yes, people like Theo, Agent, or Snekini are mature, all in the age range of 11-14 and they all are.

    User references:
    Lycel - You are surprisingly mature for your age. (Said on last application.)
    Wolfie - Support, haven't seen you being immature or rude to anyone. (Said on last application.)
    (Some person, I don't remember who.) dude, why are you so mature, when I was your age I was extremely immature. (via discord)
    Respectful
    I am incredibly respectful to others. I like talking with the community and getting along. Sometimes, someone doesn't respect other people. But I always try to respect other staff members, and players. It's just the way I flow.
    Trustworthy
    I can be very trustworthy, I can also be very responsible. I can be trusted with permissions, and I can be trusted to be helpful and respectful at all times. I can be trusted to flow with pride, and be alone with the server.
    Positive
    I always try to stay positive at all times and set a good example for other people. Negativity isn't something that's appreciated by other people, so I always try to carry myself with patient constructive messages.
    Helpful
    I love to help people. I help most of the time during my stay on the server, and it's my honor and pleasure to do so. Now some people would say "go away you noob" or something like that but I wouldn’t. I want to help people as fast and as best I can.

    At my church, we have a KRUSH for 5th-12th graders, and we have an NHK for everyone 4th grade and below. I’m in KRUSH (I'm in 6th grade), Meaning I’m eligible to volunteer at the NHK or anywhere else that I might be needed. I volunteer in the Kindergarten area for 2 services each time I go to church, and they are absolutely delightful... I recently got promoted to lead teacher in the classroom, and when I am not lead teacher for the day I go "Techno" where I go work the computer for lessons, worship and such. t's my honor to go there every Sunday and work over there. If I can help 75 kids in 1 classroom, I believe I am capable of helping the server.

    How long can you be on the server every day?
    Weekdays - 1 - 4 hours throughout the day.
    Weekends - 1-8+ hours throughout the day, and night.
    Holidays - 2-5 hours. Throughout the day, and night.

    How long have I been playing Skyblock?
    I joined the forums in July of 2015. So I'm guessing I joined the server around then. It's been almost 3.5 years now :)

    Have I ever been banned in the past?
    On the discord, I got banned recently yes. I have never been banned in game, or on the forums.

    Do I have any past experience as a moderator?
    I was an administrator for a popular Skyblock server that is no longer active. And I know all the commands to punish a player or to use it in a helpful way, but that's not all there is to a staff member. It's about if you have experience helping out players. Controlling your temper, holding yourself responsible and accountable for things, and what you have to do as a moderator. And I would say I carry myself pretty well in those areas. As far as Discord goes, I own a discord server and moderate it, so I'm familiar with how to work Discord as well.

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

    I want to thank anyone who has read this application. I truly do. I thank you for Supports, Neutrals, or No Supports to help me become a better player and learn from my mistakes.
    Have a wonderful day or night.

    If you still are getting grounded, looking after family members and so on, why apply for for a position? Your family situation doesn’t sound like it will get much better and taking an additional responsibility that requires more stability might not be too suitable.

    I would have hoped you would have opened an app when you are back in game being more active and when things have truly settled down.

    Doing things to get yourself grounded isn’t exactly responsible or mature.

    Let’s see how things go though

    No support. As others have said, you need to be active. I am active at least 3 times per week and usually around for an hour or so and haven't seen you on. You're a great guy and a friend. Your most recent ban on discord, that too the most popular one, kinda worries me a little bit on how you would handle a situation, but I don't entirely blame you. :p I don't want to offend you, but in my opinion (disagree if you want) I feel like being a moderator at your age seems too young, like you haven't gone through life experiences that will help you make a better judgement when handling a situation, at the least, 15 years is alright to be a mod, but that's just me.


    Be more active, and talk more and a fat support will come in your mailbox :p

    oh and p.s. regarding Xethorias's status, it's mostly personal fyi. You'll have to PM about that

    No support, you need to calm down with how hard you try. Like legit, I think you would be an awesome person to be friends with. But damn boy, you try too hard to be someone you’re not.

    Honest opinion: be yourself and I’ll support. Unless being yourself means being a jackass like me, then I’ll still support anyway hehe

    No support, the whole issue with mercy etc. Extremely rude to me over discord regarding respect to the staff members. You try too hard to fit in. Not willing to change, good luck.

    It is a felony. But, no. Things like this are what I would like to forget about.

    Going to have to change my status from the one I made on your last application.
    No support - your recent ban factors into this decision, however, it's not the reason why I decided to change this.

    At the moment, you haven't been the most active, I understand that you have issues going on in real life at the moment, we all do, that's totally understandable, however when you decide to apply during a bout of inactivity, it makes that look like the 'normal' for you, which isn't the standard you should be meeting as a moderator.
    We need to be online as much as possible, and once or twice a month isn't helpful since you wouldn't get the chance to learn what you needed to.

    I also would like to bring up some self-control issues. You've 'boasted' about getting yourself banned off a couple of gaming platforms for being abusive. I'm not exactly sure what was said, but all I'm saying is that if a major platform has had you banned/muted, you must've done something pretty unacceptable.

    You've also had multiple applications opened and shut, I'm unsure how dedicated you are.

    Pick up the activity when possible, and please think about what you're doing before you do it.

    No support, good luck, friend!
