    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? Yes
    How long can you be active on our platforms every day? 1 to 3 hours every day
    When did you first join Skyblock? Summer 2019
    Have you ever been banned on any platform? Yes, a few times 1. Fly hacking by Devvan did not know the rules was a New player at the time. 2 Forums ban for a spamming rating on the profile section I didn't realize that the Profile section counted towards rate abuse, I complied with the Moderators and removed all of the posts. 3. A friend of mine borrowed my account and he was banned on survival, not eco and he was trying to play eco by my /favorite was set to survival.
    Do you have any past moderation experience? Yes, I moderated the build and helped found a now-defunct small server it had 3 to 7 active daily players.
    Why do you think you should become a staff member?

    Helpful
    I enjoy and often help new and veteran players on the server knowledgeable of the server I play extensively on both servers and am highly knowledgeable of the mechanics of the server

    Empathetic
    I am capable of understanding both sides of an argument which allows me to incorporate nuance into my decisions to be as fair as possible.

    Accountable
    I am responsible for all my decisions and commitments. If I say I will do something I will do it.

    Relaxed
    I do not have a temper and I remain calm in most environments. This allows me to enter a high-stress environment and remain rational making the fairest decision for everyone involved.

    Honest
    Lying is never helpful and often leads to situations where its too complex and one can not help but to continue lying. Therefore I do not lie. This honesty also goes through my actions I do not do actions that would embarrass me if they became general knowledge. It is important to act as if everything one does will one day be written into a book.

    Do you meet the requirements for staff? Yes

    Why am I making a new application? Frankly, I am making a new application because I have matured a lot since the creation of my last application over a year ago. I am Adhd and dyslexic and since then I have been medicated which has helped me mature tremendously. I am 17 and in the last year, I have had to recond with a thing in life that has matured me such as starting the college application prosses taking the ACT and studying hard to get a perfect score and dealing with the decline in my grandmother's health and memory. With all these changes I believe I am a very different person than I was 14 months ago hence the new application.

    Thanks for reading

    You almost always seem to be AFK, not just in the last week. Not sure if you would be the best candidate, but you represent an area that has little representation from moderators (trading). Neutral.

    I don’t believe medication makes you mature.
    If you have to make the whole reason of your new application “im more mature than i was before”, you haven’t matured much. To put into perspective, I believed I was very mature for my age at 14 or 15 which was only 2 or 3 years ago, however I look back and genuinely cringe at the things I have done and said, and hate myself for who I was and still am from time to time.

    There’s two different thoughts to “maturing”.
    1) There’s believing you’ve matured, and
    2) Not realising that you have matured.
    1 is the most common and is commonly stated when you want something or believe you should get something because you believe you know what you are doing. Like it or not, we’ve all done this. You can do this so carefreely, most times you won’t realise you’re doing it.
    Saying something as simple as buying, playing or watching a game or movie rated M when you fall heavily under that age range is a clear example of that, we believe we’re mature enough to handle the scenes inside of it when in all honesty, we really aren’t. I think this through my head whenever someone puts this on their application, and sometimes it’s true, I will say, when someone says they’re mature for their age. But it’s not enough to say that you are.

    2 is also common, and it’s common because people don’t realise what’s happening until it’s already happened. Things such as traumatic events and scenes of extreme or sudden loss, with effects so great it heavily affects the person. Depression is also associated with this but it’s different. Large realisations, changes of moods towards certain things and processes, changes of style, moods and even changes to what they find enjoyable - this is maturing.
    I’ll have to expand a teensy little bit on this. Say, the loss of an uncle - it was always in the back of our mind that someday, they will pass due to their age, even at a young age. To me this first came when I was 8, when I was too young to understand what cancer was and how it affected people. Having that happen to me doesn’t make me more mature, but seeing its effects first hand and the decaying state of a person with cancer is traumatic especially to a young mind with no understanding of what’s going on, to a person you love and cherish. And at that age, you want to learn why it happens that way, and that process of learning why is maturing. Because it’s once you learn why that happens is when you start becoming aware of the things that affect people, something that we’re so oblivious and carefree towards when we are immature, young, or carefree.

    It comes with age, as things throughout your life happen. You don’t simply “become” more mature due to events that happen, you never know when you become more mature until you realise that something’s affecting you even after it happens.
    fly high trevor < 3
    Again we’ve talked about this and the situation when it happened, but as a mod you cannot allow other players to use your accounts. This contributed to why I originally took my own app down, I had 2 or 3 other players using some of my alt accounts and did not want to reflect a bad look on my name, especially when one of them was muted and banned after entrusting another person with the account (he has since been denied use of said account but still, it happened when I shouldn’t have allowed it to happen).

    This is all I have to say, as I don’t play often and when I have come on I haven’t seen you in chat. I won’t have a rating and don’t hold any other feedback that could be of value (except maybe look at Grammarly again, as your application still does have errors. I know your dyslexia’s bad, but it doesn’t hurt to run it through with a grammar checker as well to make sure you’re making sense).

    Thanks for your feedback PC. I don't mean my medication made me more mature it just allowed me to be more self reflective. Before I tending to jump from subject to subject without understanding fully how what I said affected others. I wasn't saying I was more mature due to events I am saying Im more mature based of how those events have changed me.

    Support. I know my opinion doesn't matter here but I've known Ursus for a long time and I can tell he wants to do the right thing.

    I'm a no support as of now. You're playing habits haven't changed since your last app so I don't have any reason to believe they will change. I haven't been very active but the days I am I only see autoadvertisements from you. Additionally, actions speak much louder than words, so saying you've changed/matured in your app doesn't mean very much, especially when I haven't seen or heard about you changing. Just as PC said, I also believed I was mature for my age, but I also cringe thinking back on it because I was no where close to being very mature. My final comment is to stop justifying or trying to give an excuse when acknowledging constructive criticism or people giving their thoughts.

    I think I’m going to remain neutral at the moment! One thing I’m going to agree with is that you are a bit too AFK. I’d also like to mention that remember you’re applying on behalf of UrsusMaiorus so we wouldn’t be judging how you help on your alternative accounts because not everyone would know who you are unless your nick is Ursus. One thing though is you’re fairly active on discord and forums which is good! Just boost your in-game activity and that would be great!

    Good luck!
