-Not as a staff member really i just helped a friend on his server.

6. Have you ever tried creating your own server? How did it go?

-it was fine for a while just me and 4 other irl friends but we ended up getting slaughtered by the extra mobs i put in, so we kind of lost intrest.

7. Why do you want to be a trainee?

-honestly i dont know. iv never really fit in anywhere or had many friends but since iv been in this server i feel like i have found where i want to be and i want to be able to give and support the server in anyway i can. also i think id be useful in the night shift team because of my timezone.

8. How long have you been on the Server?

-about 6 months

9. Have you ever been banned? What were you banned for and by whom?

-yes i have, the first week on the server for 3 days. i was banned by cube for greifing, i understand why i was banned and i accept that but i hade no clue what greifing meant, i thought it was about killing people.

10. What hours will you most likely be on?(PST)

-usally about 3pm to 8am for pst, for me its 7am to 1am

11. Do you understand what a trainee does? Please explain.

-I guess its someone who seeks to learn from the other staff on how to better improve the server and help people. Someone who is there to provide assistance to help solve their problem.

12. How would you handle a grief report? Example: "Help! I have been griefed :/"

-id try to help them in anyway i can and work to find a solution to their problem like trying to find proof, if i cant help then i would message a staff member or a moderator and ask if they can assist me

13. How would you handle someone, or many people, complaining that the server is lagging?

-Id check their signal strength, if it was low id suggest maybe a relog might help or that it could be down to their location. if theirs many people complaining about lag i would alert ergenta or cube about it.

14. How many warnings would you give before you temp-banned someone?

-3, always standard 3 unless it was really bad.

15. Would you try to collect "evidence" before you ban someone, such as screen shots, ect. ?

-oh definitely, i never act without evidence. I would take screenshots and collect dates, times and a log of what was taken or what was said.

16. If you became a trainee, would you check the ban appeals frequently?

-Yeah, every few days

17. What is your favorite song?

-omg so many to choose from. ummmm probably have to be either ONE by Metallica or Wrong Side Of Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch , i love heavy metal and 40's music

18. Any staff member recommend you? (It's okay if they don't but it's better if you do have one!)

-Not that i know of

I am in support and even endorse Brandon for staff. He is always active and helpful with new players. In his application, he shows that he is honest by disclosing previous mistakes and how he has learned from the moment with no other discipline needed afterward.

It would be a HUGE blessing to have someone able to cover what would be the over night shift for North America. I was on last night (1am pst) and had a new player who wanted to play with others. The player was in a timezone where they had the full day ahead of them. It would have been cool to have a staff on to help them get acquainted with the server who would be around into the morning for them.

All that said, Brandon is also helpful when it comes to events and helping others with ambitious projects. He promotes ally-ship with the LGTBQ+ players and asks questions when he is not sure.

Two thumbs up for Brandon as Trainee!!

I also support Brandon, he’s a great guy with good character. Also the time zone is a great point Bc in the morning when I log on he’s still on while most staff are asleep

I vouch, you're a very kind and active player who very I enjoy chatting with. You very obviously have a care for the community and you are able to be on when others are not, and are able to create community with players on the other side of the world! I appreciate your honestly in your application, and I think all of us on staff, and most of us on the server would say that you do very much belong, and I wouldn't want this server without you

Unfortunately I personally think you've applied at a bad time, as our staff team is very crowded at the moment. This does not change my position on vouching for you, but I believe you should be staff, just maybe not yet. I hope to see you on the team one day :D
