    Personal Information

    What is your age?
    18

    Location
    Virginia, USA

    Application

    Do you have a working microphone?
    Yes

    At what times are you mostly available to administrate on the servers?
    Around 8 to 11 pm EST during the week, 12pm to 12am weekends

    Roughly how many hours a week do you play on our servers?
    20-31 hours a week, depending on how busy I am

    Which Degree-Gaming servers do you usually play on and what time?
    I usually get on the Vegas VSH server, though every now and then I get on Jailbreak or Murder Mystery.

    Did anyone refer you to this application?
    Jim and Vital

    If you could change anything about Degree-Gaming, what would it be?
    Maybe ease the flow of information. It's confusing for some people not in the loop to find out changes to rules or what happened in certain updates. It might be worth it to put a News tab on the main page of the Degree-Gaming website

    Have you ever held an administrator or moderator position for another community? If so, what position did you hold and for how long did/have you hold/held it?
    No, as I wasn't really a part of any online communities prior to discovering Degree.

    How do you feel your acceptance as a Server Administrator will affect the community?
    I think I could fill the gap for having admins on more often. I'm very active on the server, and because my timezone is 3 hours ahead of most of the player base I can more easily balance my schoolwork and still be there to watch over people as players get on.

    How would you improve the community/servers overall?
    I think I could bring more positivity to the table. I try to be a positive and supportive influence on people around me, which I believe is especially important for many of the minors in the community and on the server as they need the most support.

    Do you have any experience administrating through SourceMod?
    No

    How have you supported the community so far?
    Thus far I've informed people of rules, commands, and tips for the server as things pop up, I donated once to the server, and I've both helped people report rulebreakers and have reported one myself.

    Why should we accept you into the team?
    Overall, I think I could be a positive influence here. I've already shown myself to be good at keeping up with rules and helping enforce them, and I'm on often so I could be a good boost to ensuring gameplay remains fair and unhindered by rulebreakers.

    Is there anything else you want to tell us (maybe about yourself)?
    I'm a freshman Computer Engineering major, and I have a lot of interest in game development and cybersecurity. I can code in C#, make 3D models via Blender, and am trying to learn other C based languages and COBAL (which I realize is ancient, but why not learn). I'm also learning how to use Hammer.

    I accept the following:

    To be accepted into the admin team I will never abuse or misuse my given permissions to give myself an advantage in game play or to upset others. I understand that I must be trained fully by a management member and first must pass a one-on-one interview on Discord. I also verify that my age and other information that I provide are truthful and if any are to be proven false then I risk having my application declined with no chance of re-applying in the future.

    Yes

    Big +1 from me. Vega has been around the servers for quite a bit and is always in a good mood whenever they're on. Vega is also very responsible and has helped report people that cause trouble and does so in a calm and collective manner. Vega can also take jokes and is mature when the time comes to be mature. Vega would be a great and huge addition to the team.

    Definitely a +1, Vega has been playing in our servers for a long time even when not a member. vega tells ppl the rules and enforces them about it. she's fun to play with and (probably) respected within the servers. Vega is a great addition for me!

    This application is already starting to get a lot of +1's in its first week. I, for one, would love to see Vage join the team. She's very active on VSH and enfores the rules periodically, which is what we require our admins to become.
    Due the application's popularity, I'll be moving it to In Review (unless a Senior Management member pardons that).
