    How Long Have You Played Skyblock?
    Since Feb 2017

    Do You Have Previous Moderation Experience?
    I do not have a Mod Background,
    But I can develop a good one very easily because I already help out a lot in the game. I have a very good background of this server. I want to help out with the server and be able to help out to the fullest extent I can.


    How Active Am I?

    I play this server everyday and have for about the past 4 months after taking a short break from may. I started up playing again in early October and I know I will not stop playing for a long time. I play on all 4 servers, Classic, Skyblock, Economy, Skywars. I can monitor every server if you throw the task at me.

    Why should I become staff?
    I am active for about 2-3 hours everyday, I know the community very well, Ive played since Feb 2017, And I love this server with all my heart. I do not lose my temper easily, honestly it is very, very hard to get me to. Im pretty adaptable to changes on the server, I learn quickly and am very friendly. I can be active everyday of the week and sometimes even holidays. I only take about 2, 2 day vacations a year so I can put my effort completely on this server. I stick with stuff that I like. Im pretty good at problem solving and straight forward. It has been a long time dream to become staff for me. know the community very well, Ive played since Feb 2017, And I love this server with all my heart. I do not share my opinions about real life on this server, I will only share them in real life with my family and friends. I do not lose my temper easily, honestly it is very, very hard to get me to. Im pretty adaptable to changes on the server, I learn quickly and am very friendly. I can be active everyday of the week and sometimes even holidays. I only take about 2, 2 day vacations a year so I can put my effort completely on this server. I stick with stuff that I like. Im pretty good at problem solving and straight forward. It has been a long time dream to become staff for me. I can deal with scamming situations well and deal with it for the time being and direct it to a higher staff or fix it myself, I can deal with swearing well and not get offended if someone insults me, I have many friends on this server and spend most of my time here. I have some friends in real life that play here so don't be surprised if they show up on my IP address, My best friend being Cheese7707 Who plays every now and then. And the other friend is DietCoke22 who is My friend Zach. He plays every now and then too. I do use both accounts but will not use them myself during drop parties that is for my friends to do. I am very compassionate about not cheating in the game and I want to keep it that way. I have stuff on every server and can help new players out. I have donated a lot to new players and to the server, for example Diamonds, Grass, And a Island. I am exetremely commited to keeping friendships with people. I am trying to get more of my friends to play this to get a more active server. I used to play on classic a ton so I have connections on the new server and the old one. I play in 1.8.9 most of the time but I can play on newer versions. I have optifine which I always play with but have worst too in case for whatever reason you want me to use hacks but I never do. A quote I would use is, "age does not mark maturity."

    Some Info about me:
    I live in the northeast region of the USA. It's always cold up here, I love computers and cars, I play baseball and I ski every now and then. I Have a strong technology background and have played Minecraft since 2017. My Discord is WhatsUpDoc#8999

    I'd update your color scheme a bit, as the italics + light red + underlined text is ab it difficult to read, at least on my monitor/phone.

    Your application is also missing the "Do you have any previous moderation experience?" section, that may be important to add.

    It'd also be good to read through Lz's guide or Lycel's guide on applying to help expand your "Why should I become staff" section, as generally this section is quite long for applicants.

    Best of luck :D

    Neutral. You only have 56 posts which is 6 over requirements and I've only seen you help somebody once, by recording that video for GrassyString3000.

    No support. You just passed the minimum forum message requirements. I'd wait till you reach around 200 or at the bare minimum 150 messages so more people can interact with you more. I have seen you fairly active in-game I haven't seen you help out as much.

    Do you have discord? A requirement for being a helper is to have discord as offline communication and it is where you should also look out for as there will be people asking for help in the skyblock help chat. Along with that, you'll get to know the community a lot more and meet new people :p

    You're a great guy honestly and so far I haven't had any issues but I think you should work on improving your presence throughout forums and in game.

    Here are some suggestions to your application that you are missing and/or would need some improvement
    • I suggest you break up your monstrous paragraph so its easier to read :p
    • You say a lot of "I" which makes it repetitive. I would suggest you redo the paragraph
    • Don't mention your friend, this is about you. I want to learn about you and read about you (not to sound creepy) :p
    • Donating to players is extremely helpful but isn't a gamechanger (Add a helpful section describing how helpful you are and you can add that! :p)

    I put Neutral for now but leaning towards support, I have seen you online a lot, you appear to help as much as you can, I wouldn't hold forum post count against you because If you don't have anything insightful to say, then why say it. Also there is no point post farming bs just to add to the post count which some do, anyway, you don't do that so its ok. I would be on support if I saw you helping a few more people, but other than that, I don't see why not.

    I’ve decided to give you a support; for a variety of factors. Sure, there are a lot of points which need work, such as overall professionalism, discord and forum activity, and knowledge of the server- but I see a lot of potential for you. You were one of the friendliest players on the server when I got griefed, and you made great efforts to raise grass for me- and that’s just the tip of the iceberg on how kind and helpful you are. I wish you the best of luck doc. A couple of tips are to just format your application in black, normal text, and to add multiple replies in one reply to avoid post farming claims.

    Hello Doc,

    We got off to a rocky start, but as time passed, I've begun to think of you as an onion. You have many layers, and I'm very glad to have found that many of these layers are positive ones. There are some things I'd like to see change about you, but for the most part, I have no problems with you being staff.

    You're an active player with an adequate knowledge of how Skyblock works. You're frequently able and willing to use this knowledge to help people when prompted, and you seldom do things that annoy people(this last one is very important to me).

    Tentative support for now, and I'll keep looking out for you in game!
    Good luck,
    GAMER

    I'll put a neutral for now. As said up there, I would recommend you expand more on your motive to become staff. Everything seems to be divided into repetitive 'I do this', 'I do that'. Try to use words that are unique to describe yourself and give the reader/staff more of something to crutch off of, tell them what makes you different from other applicants, because that seems to be lacking the most is your difference from what others could make.

    Otherwise, good luck!

    Heya Doc,

    I've seen you in-game for a long time now, didn't really speak much to start with but as the time has progressed I guess we've just noticed each other more. I believe that you are a capable player of becoming staff for many reasons (activity, being helpful and so on). But as stated above from other players, you do have points to work on and maybe use as a guide for improvement. Like when Gamer stated "and you seldom do things that annoy people" - I have noticed this too but I'll also contrast and say that no player or mod, in general, is perfect and I strongly consider that you can change this. Mostly support from me.

    Good luck! :p

    Support! You are active, but since i don't pay attention to chat and stuff, idk if you help out or not.
    Best of luck,

    Neutral leading to no support; mainly because of the reasons of not having the "Experience as a moderator" (as Redstone said) and being fairly new to both the forums and not having discord.

    Maybe try again in a few months or so and it'll be a totally different review for me :)
