    I'm going to take a 1-2 week intermission just to get closer to this community, fulfill a decent amount of reports, and some giveaways :)

    I'll also be editing this application to make it seem less-Shakespeare-ish

    I'm sorry but right now I can't support you.

    You just hit 50 posts, now normally this wouldn't be such a drawback for me but this leads me to a few other drawbacks.

    You see as soon as you joined forums you created a mod app and it got denied because you didn't meet the requirements.

    After your app was denied you started posting a lot, so much so that it was classified as post farming.

    I warned you for it, and you fought me on this warning, saying things like that you were "just trying to make the forums a more lively place" and "have had years of moderation experience".
    Now I kept the warning on even though you had fought me on it because it was a valid warning.

    However with you making this moderator application the minute you hit 50 posts, I belive what you were telling me was in fact not true, and any "activity" you've been having has mostly been to simply increase your post count.

    This compiled with the fact that you wish to fight that much over something as simple as a warning tells me right now, you simply wouldn't be a good fit on the mod team.

    I'm sorry if any of this seems harsh but this is simply how I see it, maybe you can change my mind on a later date.

    I respect your constructive criticism. This all seems too fast, and I 100% agree with you. However, the only explanation I can give you is this.

    Of all servers, I respect this one the most. As a child, I dedicated lots of my time on this server with my old friends. It's an amazing feeling to revisit that one community you loved as a 10-year-old, and that's what motivated me.

    I'm really ambitious about this volunteering position. For once in my life, I'd like to do something beneficial online even if it's for a Minecraft community. @i_am_youtuber

    I'd like to hear other valued opinions on my application.

    Alright, I'm not going to comment on your post count because in all honesty I think it should be lowered as a requirement, also not going to judge you because you're new because you can still know how to do the job.

    With that being said, I'm going to go with neutral.

    I quite like your experiences as a staff member, especially the one on Blockdrop as it's quite a bigish server and the fact that you stayed for 6 months is quite surprising as I find it quite a toxic server, which just shows me that you can handle this server.

    I've seen you in-game quite a bit which is also a good factor.

    The only thing I'm scared of is that you are sounding way more mature than you actually are, I know I could be wrong but I feel you potential googled some of the words and never actually use them.

    As I said I could be wrong though so feel free to comment back if I am. Good luck.

    I’ll have to go with neutral due to the reasons above. I also havent seen you in game all that much, but that may be cause of clashing scheduled. All else said, I wish you good luck.

    no support, i don’t trust people who say they can be active from 6pm to 1am because those are the mods that go inactive

    Frequent breaks involved

    Thanks for the feedback though!


    That's' completely fine! Although I'm on OP-PVP most of the time, I find that completely okay. Thanks for your feedback

    I genuinely appreciate the fact you took the time to write this. I completely understand your feelings. My school has this program that enables you to expand your vocabulary list, and if you already guessed I'm in enlisted in it.

    Thank you all for giving me your honest feedback!

    Keep em coming guys!


    Edit:

    Also, my recent history with the server's code of conduct may have changed a little, hope it doesn't interfere with my overall chances of acquiring this position.

    I'm going to be completely honest with this application by giving you a no support. You seem like a very nice person and you seem like you really want to help the server, however, I've seen your vocabulary and such. It's very good for a 14 year old, and I don't clearly understand some of them. You can use apps like Grammarly and also just Google them up like @Accept stated. However, I saw your post that you have a school program which helps you expand your vocabulary which I quite don't believe, sadly.

    Also, the fact that you got denied before for lack of requirements, I saw you posting at a fast rate to catch up to 50 posts which is basically Post Farming. Even @i_am_youtuber had warned you but you decided to argue with him when you shouldn't. That's one of the main reasons I'm giving you no support.

    I don't know what to say, other than the fact I appreciate you giving your honest feedback. Clearly, I made a mistake arguing to @i_am_youtuber about whether I was post farming or not. I guess I was just eager to submit my application, and I'll be honest, I was. I personally believe that by using the best vocabulary words I have ( which I don't acquire off of a thesaurus), I would elevate my chances at getting this position.

    I'm simply trying to be as articulate ( well spoken) as I possibly can. I'm very ambitious over doing something productive this summer, and I believe the first step towards benefitting the people around me, is acquiring this rank here at this server. I genuinely love this server and I'm passionate about it. That's why I'm more than just qualified.

    So far the score for my application is 6(negative)-0(positive), and some neutrals. All I can say is thank you all for giving me your honest feedback. Once again, thanks @ATruePitato for giving your honest, concise opinion about my application.

    Thanks once again <3

    Sorry if this comes across rude, but do you type like this all the time? Reading this application reminded me of reading one of my university essays after I’ve had a thesaurus open for hours to make it seem smarter.

    Yes, you want to appear professional when moderating a server, but it’s also great to relax and use a bit of slang here and there to come across as approachable to our (especially younger) players.

    Neutral. Your application is very long which contradicts what you said "I'm going to keep this articulate and concise." Overall it seems like you googled all of these words but at least some of them that I saw were used correctly. As @i_am_youtuber said that you argued with him shows the quality in you that do not want to listen to authority, which makes me believe you would not be able to handle the stress of being a moderator and possibly abuse you power. Lastly, the fact that you have exploited before is a drawback because it shows that you deliberately tried to interfere with the fairness in Mineverse. Therefore, I believe you should gain more experience on Mineverse and play other servers with in it, since I mainly see you on OP PVP. However, I love your honesty and willingness to accept criticism.

    I may have taken it too far, I guess. I just really want this position. I've always implemented a sense of professionalism in every place I've ever volunteered, even at the hospital. As a 10-year-old, I joined this server and was greeted with utmost positivity and optimism. I want to give more than just a thank you to this community. Thanks for your feedback guys!

    It’s okay to want to sound professional, but don’t think this is the way to do it because I’m sure you have a great way of communicating! Just be yourself -something I wish I learnt when I first got promoted here. People will like you better and will want to come to you for help if you’re authentic. :)
