    When did you first start playing on ARPG -
    I started playing on the server on july 2017 and took a brake at the 11/06/17 till the 12/21/17 due to exams.

    Have you previously applied on ARPG (If so, How long has it been?)? -
    My last application was at the Oct 30, 2017, a month ago that I got denied.

    Have you ever been banned on any server (If so why?)?*-
    Yes, I have been banned before because I abused / exploited the halloween event (after a few months I started to feel guilty and told Kiibou_chan)and I would never want to do it again neither would I want anyone to be banned. Beeing banned isn't a great feeling because it's a suspension / penalty for beeing an ungreatful and bad player. Ungreatful for abusing the weaknesses of the server instead of calling a staff member to fix it and a bad player because you can't accept to only get that what you are allowed to have and need also called greed. If someone really decides to do either of these things I just want to tell you that it's just damaging the server and in the end your actions will be found out and you get to feel the bann hammer and that's even stronger than stellar.

    How many hours can you play per day/week?*-
    I can play an average of 10 - 15 hours a week. My mom doesn't want me to play too much so I'm limited to 2-3 hours a day :p
    • Monday: 6pm - 9pm
    • Tuesday: 3pm - 9pm
    • Wednesday: 2pm - 9pm
    • Thursday: 2pm - 9pm
    • Friday: 1pm - 11pm
    • Saturday: 11am - 10pm
    • Sunday: 11am - 9pm

    Why do you want to become a helper?*-
    I'd like to be helper because I want to make the server feel a bit more fun and outstanding through little events(I want to discuss this with the event manager first)and big raiding parties. There are things a normal player can't do, like a few days ago that I wanted to explain 2 players that the market levels are false but they didn't want to believe me. What I want to say is that players don't believe in one another and I want to change that by building up trust. What I also noticed is that the only few staff members I see online from time to time are 2 admins and a few mod, these are all the staff member that ever come online! The last time I saw a helper was months ago which is kinda weird because the lack of helpers is extreme and when helpers come online all they do is stand around beeing afk. I want to be the helper players can be proud of and look up to. The reason I want to become helper is that players can instantly know "Ok, I can ask this guy what to even do on this server" and actually help players that need help. Also I see many players walking around with high level gear which isn't their level and I need to screenshot it and tell a staff member which is either Kiibou_chan or BlueSoFab and I don't want to do all this waiting until that person finally gets their items removed instead I could just take over which I cannot do due the lack of the permission of staff like I said above "There are thing a normal player can't do, ...". I really want to be a help to the other staff members and the server itself and it's whole community through my actions! By beeing a helper I'd have closer contact with staff and could help if possible (for example help with builds or bugs).


    What is your previous experience in any type of moderation?*-
    I've been server co-owner once (the actual owner never did anything for the server so I asumed I'd be owner) and edited the plugins there, it was a reallife server and I was struggling and searched desperatly for a plugin that made it possible to add chats for example the guild chat --> /g, /a, /al which I never found out how to do it but I made it possible with PermmisionEx to not let normal players build anything and made it possible for players to buy houses with ores to get the house with redstone locks / doors. But all beautiful things come to an end and I lost motivation doing it because no-one ever cared what I did or helped me in the things I wanted to do then in the end I was the only one left that was playing / caring for that server and the actuall owner of it never payed attention to me or cared coming online so I didn't really care anymore what would happen to the server.

    What advice would you give someone who had to deal with people younger than them?*-
    I would advice them to stay calm and relaxed as possible due to the fact that the younger person does still not understand what to do and what not to, for example if the younger person is becoming disrespectul to you to just stay focused and calm because arguing at that point won't really be possible due to the fact that the younger just doesn't know the do's and dont's. The key is simple, patients. If you don't have any patients and start getting angry at the younger person they might even be able to threaten you because of the thing you said (bad words) and I don't think you want to be in that situation.

    Can you use the teamspeak and a microphone?-
    Yes, I can.

    Any other information we should know?* -
    I`m a self confident guy and I usually have no problem speaking to others. I have proven myself that I`m calm when talking/helping other players even though they can be very exhausting and disrespectful I'm not going to raise my voice against them. My age is 14-15 and I like gaming or going in the city with friends or simply watching animes also sports is a fun thing to do. I like helping people with their problems either here in SCO or in real life because playing without knowing the basics is very annoying and difficult. I have an interest in programming and such, I tried doing so by starting playing with the Editor by making a text box and quizes which was very funny.

    Did you read and do you accept the rank and application thread rules and also the server / website rules?
    Yes, I did.

    http://swordart.ancientrpg.net/index.php?threads/scouthunty-s-helper-application.1090/#post-15850 according to your last app you were banned around January. How does that relate to Halloween?

    Idea, change the market levels. Problem solved

    Not all players know the level requirements for items. You can't expect every person to go out of their way to read that board when it's off to the side.

    So how would you make the sever feel a bit more fun and outstanding?

    In your last application you said you were the owner of this server. So, are you the owner or the co-owner?

    So is that 22pm in 24 hour time or did you type it wrong?

    Decent application, not too different from your last one but this one has been updated with new information (such as your ban).

    I think it's good that you understand it's wrong, and you are displaying how you felt... however, it does look like it starts to become some kinda sob story. You only really need to tell us why you were banned, and maybe a little bit about how you feel, though it's not required.

    Some things here make it look like you just want power:
    and of course, your key phrase - "there are things a normal player can't do". Though, these are just minor things - they do point to a desire for power.
    Also, regarding the issue of people not believing you, or other players; everyone gets that. Even staff.

    ;-;

    Good luck on your app!

    While I believe Optimus and Eros both touched on several big issues, I believe a few more are in the application.
    This is one half of your reason for wanted to become staff. The entirety of it is a basic descript of "Staff currently sucks and is never on and I think I can do better". While this may not have been the intention, you must watch your wording very carefully as this application is a large part of how you show yourself off.
    Once again, you have spent a major part of your paragraph, (and the opening statement I might add), bashing another server owner/staff member.
    While there are a few grammatical errors, I understood the general idea. However, this is not a paragraph. This is 1 run on sentence and two smaller sentences, and essentially each sentence says the same thing. There is not much detail, so I would suggest that you add more in and give an in depth approach to this issue.
    Much evidence to the contrary on this, both on discord, from screenshots of the server, and from personal interactions.

    While I understand the need for staff members, that simply does not mean everyone is cut out for it. From what I have witnessed in all walks of the server, you have very little regard for most of staff, and only truly listen to Kii and Artemis. Additionally, you seem very immature, and seem to have a mentality that you know everything. Your "helping" on the server only occurs when you have seen staff online, and my best assumption is you do this only to look better, not because you care. After your previous denial and ban, you made a large deal about it in public chat on the server for a while, after two staff members told you to stop. I must admit, my opinion of you is not very great. I feel as if you are not ready to be staff, and have a long ways to go, despite your rush to join. You have my -1

    The other guys pretty much summed up everything with your application. I’d like to also point out that being a Helper is more than just being a staff member. You must really know the community and understand that on your own. It’s important that you know these things fully to be an efficient staff member.

    I counted 54 hours of available time, yet you can only play for 10-15 hours. Why can you only play for 10-15 hours?

    How is this relevant to how you were banned? Not saying it's wrong I'm just curious?

    How will you do that by becoming staff?

    And how would this help with your goal?

    Finally, I suggest using Grammarly (free version is fine) to help with spelling/grammar when writing your application. It would help out with some of the mistakes present in your application.

    This is actually really hurting, I'm always helping people and answer their questions and now you want to tell me I never help except when staff is online?

    I'd have to back up what Scout has said here. There have been many times where I have been invisible, and Scout has not known I was there. Even so, he continued to aid players. I'd also like to say that, he listens to me too. I have not yet witnessed him ignore a staff member, or disobey as such. I have also been vacant during the times in which Scout has caused trouble. I am not choosing sides, I am just correcting something which I have found to be untrue. Due to the fact I have only heard claims of Scout's misbehaviour, I remain neutral with this application.

    I still can't understand how you came to that conclusion.. I'm always helping when I can and I never left someone with a question, either I answered it or said "Sorry, I don't know" and something similar to that, have you ever even checked in the game what I do? Are you just listening what you want to hear? and about "I only truly listen to Kii and Artemis" and barely spoke to artemis and I listen to every staff member including you because I know that you guys are probably right and I respect you but this is just Bs telling me that I don't help when staff isn't online or I only listen to a few staff members.
