Current rank on server (This is a ULX rank ONLY! Not a RP Rank)?
How many warns do you have on the server (Show proof with a screenshot)?
I currently have 35 warns. I have appealed four warns so far which two of them are in progress of removal due to them being accepted but is currently awaiting SMT approval. Also, I know 35 warns may seem bad to all of the people reading this but, I haven't been warned in 3-4 months. Which I am trying to maintain. Majority of the warns you see are from a year ago back of September-November of 2018. Around January or February I have tried to restart my reputation, which I believe I have and it's been going good so far. I was able to get in a few departments which are SRT and State Troopers. Also, there is no limit to how many warns I can have for me to apply for staff. But enough talking, I'll go ahead and post a screenshot of my warns below this statement: https://gyazo.com/596e5e728802fc97dc61940be3c75254

Why do you believe that you deserve the rank? (150 Word Minimum)
As a Trial Moderator, it is in my best interest to treat the staff team as I treat all of my friends. It is evident that we have new moderators, especially with the server having the server with a lot of minges during the down times. Some of the new Moderators need a lot of taking care of and careful guidance. I don't necessarily see enough of this occurring but, I have been letting them take my sits so they may gather valuable experience. I believe that this is only a partial contribution and it should be taken into much greater consideration. We need to make sure our new staff members are up to handle their roles as a staff member. They need to show initiative and the drive behind it but as well as enjoy their important role on the server. I suggest regular training/advisory sessions would work wonders but this is only effective.
Bellow will be some points outlined on what I plan to do and how I can continue to provide a benefit towards the staffing team.
I will seek out to make sure that I will continue to be approachable, regardless whoever it may be, of their staff rank, or if they are even a player that does not want to listen. - I intend to continue to keep calm, cool, and collected, I would never yell out of anger, and will always listen to people sides of the story no matter who they are.
I wish to remain consistent - I want to deal with more situations and remain active in the GamingLight Community for as long as I can. If everything works out in my favor, I should be able to maintain any staff requests. If I see that there are issues arising within the Staff Team, I will not resist to point them out with my ideas on how to fix them.
I will continue to maintain a balance between priority as my role as a Trial Moderator and as well as my roleplay.
I will remain motivated, to continue to learn and improve.
It is in my best interest to constantly keep tabs with anything happening with the Staff Team and take upon an active role within it but I wish to expand that to include the Forums, Discord, and OOC more than just the Staff Chat.
In my staffing experience, I try to keep a positive attitude during sits. Even if they are just yelling at me to do something I must hear both sides of the story before I do anything. Even if they are calling me a bad staff member, honestly I really don’t care if they call me out because if you respond on what he said to you what will you get out of it? Nothing. It’s bad to have a negative attitude and interrupt the people talking their side in the sit. Because nothing will be solved when two or more people are going at it. I know to stay calm cool and collected during sits as well. In sits, usually, the people in it are calm no yelling, no disrespect, nothing at all. For me, it’s going to be a rare occasion if they ever start yelling at me, etc.
In my years of gaming, I’ll be honest with you, my maturity was absolute garbage. Until I started getting serious about things, I wanted to staff on a server which made me have to change. Once I became staff on a server my Maturity has become better than it was before. I joke around here and then, but never when I am on sits. Even if someone is disrespecting me I learn to ignore and just don’t give a shit about what they say. Because, if I were to respond with a very rude tone, sentence, phrase, etc. It would make everything worse.
During my early days of my staffing career, I have learned a lot. On my first day of being a staff member on a server, I have made some minor mistakes that were able to be corrected. I am pretty sure we all make mistakes at our first time doing things. I did not know how to do things around the server, which made me have to learn as I go on. I learned so much from my mistakes which lead me to what I am today. In the staff applications, I posted in the past gave me constructive criticism. This helped me learn how to become a better staff member than what I was before. In the servers I worked for, I’ve learned how to handle most situations/problems that arise from sits. I have learned to listen to both sides of the story first before deciding on what is to happen. I learn how to be friendly during sits.
So moving on... I’ve been dedicated to this server for over a couple days now. I have over 1 week+ online U Time and have learned a lot from the staff team, these hours may not seem that much to you but I believe the timer had reset my time. I am usually on the server almost every day. My playtime on Steam is still over 180 hours in two weeks, these are actual playtime, not AFKing time. The two weeks count of playtime which is 180 hours some of them are put into GamingLight. I put in 10+ hours during the weekdays and 10+ hours during the weekends for Garry's Mod. My activity has become even better since I have a lot more time since I am currently on Summer Break. Which means I’ll have an extra bit of hours every day. Since I’m talking about school currently, I am willing to procrastinate and do my homework later in order to play/moderate on GamingLight for a couple of hours (I know it does sound cringy, but I am willing to do it). I believe I’ll be a good use to the staff team, as I am in the Australian Timezone also you may or may not know me because of our timezone differences.
How would you handle someone that is Mass RDMing and when you bring him/her to an admin sit all they do is curse at you?
To start off, I would bring out my Physgun. Drag him to a roof, then jail them. I would go ahead and type in the command to strip their weapons from their inventory. As well as for the cursing, I would go ahead and gag/mute them. I would then proceed to check the logs for the accusations made against him and see if they are true. And if such is true I would go ahead and warn the person for "Mass RDM | Mic Spam in Admin Sit | Staff Disrespect.|" After that since it is a Mass RDM, I would go ahead and also check how much people they killed, and if it is more than two people I would proceed to follow the Staff Handbook with the Anti-Minge times.
I'd like to thank the people that read through my application for spending your time doing such. It's much appreciated. Have a good day.
