Zaphorx's Helper Application IGN - Zaphorx Age - 18 Timezone- GMT +1 When did you first start playing on ARPG - I am not exactly sure , my best guess would be around april, 2015. I used to play back when Bright was the owner but I took a break after a year. I returned in 2017 and started playing again a few months after Sky’s revamp. Have you previously applied on ARPG (If so, How long has it been?)? - I have never applied on SCO before. Have you ever been banned on any server (If so why?)?*- Yes, i have been banned on Hypixel, for breaking the rules ,using fly hacks in its zombies minigame, full pve modality. As staff members i would have done the same thing(banning the cheater) , it was a pve modality and i was not ruining other players fun since i was playing with friends, but i did break the rules, excluding that i have not been banned on any other servers . I will try to respect the server’s rules, and not cause any harm or destroy the experience of players on the server. How many hours can you play per day/week?*- During the Winter I can spend about 2 to 3 hours daily on the server as i do have work in real life . Monday: 8 pm - 11pm Tuesday: 8 pm - 11pm Wednesday: 8 pm - 11pm Thursday: 8 pm - 11pm Friday: 8 pm - 11pm Saturday: 8 pm - 11pm Sunday: 8 pm - 11pm However, in the summer i don't work and i am free to play whenever i want. Why do you want to become a helper?*- The reason why i am applying for helper is that I feel like this server it's the best sao server out there. When i first joined , i noticed that the staff team were dedicated , and actually doing their jobs , which really gave me a big impression about the server .I too want to leave an impression on others and help this server in any way that i can, to become a staff would be a great responsibility that I would love to feel. Helping the community and others would be the top priority of mine and, this would make me feel more involved . Of course, there will be maturity and management in this role which will be a prime concern too. I may be a little sarcastic, but most of the times i will be serious when it is needed. I will be fully devoted and respect the rules As i will state later on, I also have experience as a staff member. Some of my experiences as staff include being able to make balanced NPCs in which they are not able to be switch glitched. As most of the server’s content revolves in its pve, this can resolve a lot of abusing. I also believe that i can help players with any questions that they have. For instance, if something isn’t working properly or they don’t know what to do, since i am usually on, i could help them to the best of my ability. Overall, I believe that I can be of great use to the server and its community. Edit: Yes i do know that starting as helper, i wouldn't have any perms to edit/make npcs/buildings and i may be promoted after months, i don't have any problems about that , this is normal, previously i said how could i help the server but if the owner decides to keep me forever as helper without getting promoted it wouldn't be a problem for me , there could still be ways to help the server doing minor things like helping people to get started and making people respect chat rules since, some players do not care about the warning they get from normal players . What is your previous experience in any type of moderation?*- My previous experience would range from being a head builder to a moderator or even an admin. I have been staff on my different servers, some quite famous, others not much . Currently i am staff on a server but may quit it due to the staff team being too disorganized. My first staff experience was back in 2016, in one piece znet as a builder where i helped building anime based islands, it was a popular Network back in, afters this i started getting trusted by the owner and made me network moderator and builder, except on naruto znet because i was already head-builder, but sadly the network got discontinued and the owner decided to shut down the whole network because he couldn't manage all the servers alone. After this i joined dragon block xenoverse’s staff team as a builder where i worked on some quest and some event locations, some months after that i have joined the dragon ball elite staff team as a helper where i helped players getting started, and i had quit after 1 month due server getting a reset/revamp , at the same time i got promoted to admin on dragon block xenoverse where i started working on bosses and diverse stuff , but i quitted when the server revamped. Now i am currently staff at one piece golden era as builder but i may quit due to the staff team being too disorganized and because im getting bored of one piece servers. What advice would you give someone who had to deal with people younger than them?*- I would tell them to simply stop . If they keep arguing or keep breaking the rules , i would punish them acording to the servers staff guide , although every situation is different, the most logical thing would be : being patient and treating them nicely . Dealing with a person younger than you may be hard sometimes but one thing you must keep in mind is that it is your job to deal with it , we were all annoying kids . I would aIso demonstrate as much as possible a good temperance when talking with young kids. This might not solve the problem but it's the most efficient. Can you use the teamspeak and a microphone?- I have teamspeak as well as a mic. However, i do prefer to use Discord. A heads up though, my spoken english is not the best as it is not my first language Any other information we should know?* - I would describe myself as a calm/charismatic person ( when i talk to people) , but serious when it is needed. I have 2 hobbies, the first one is watching anime, i don't have a favorite type of anime but if i have to choose one i would choose fantasy (Shōnen,Seinen). The other main hobby is cooking, cooking is something that I inherited from my grandmother; my grandmother was a professional chef and owned an hotel, where I learned how to cook. I also enjoy playing computer games as well, my favorite games are all dark souls and minecraft of course, i have played on sco since i bought my pc. I work as a waiter and in the front office of a 3 stars hotel, which is not what i would prefer to do since i love cooking but it's still cool, because you interact with a lot of people. Praise The sun and bears, we all love bears. Did you read and do you accept the rank and application thread rules and also the server / website rules? I have read all the rules for the server, website, and discord and agree with them. Thx for reading, if you have more suggestions put them below, thanks. Spoiler: Frequently asked questions. Spoiler: 1) [/Why did you break the rules? I wanted to go out the map using fly to explore the map and unaccessible rooms. If you Wished to hear a good reason this isn't you Lucky day <3 Spoiler: 2) First, how do you know you didn't ruin any other players fun? Or are you just telling yourself that because you don't think it was a big deal? Second, why does it sound like you are justifying breaking the rules just because you were with friends? I know that because the minigame can be played only in 4 and I was playing with 3 friends, and they were cheating with me. Btw i wasn't trying to justify My actions, i am sorry if it seems I am. I 100% agree with the ban, I was just clarifying that I would never have used things like fly in a modality where I could have harmed other players fun. Spoiler: 3) If players don't listen to regular players, how are you going to get them to listen to you? How would you deal with players who don't listen? Some players listen only to staff members, since only staff members can really punish them, showing them a simple Helper prefix would make them respect server rules. About the "How would you deal with players who don't listen?" part, depends, if I am the only staff member online after 3 warnings I would mute him, the length may depend on what did he say/spam and if I had already muted him in the past days. In case the situation is strange and i don't know what to do, i would contact another staff member. Spoiler: 4) Why did you quit when the server revamped? Unless you were forced to for some reason or had other issues with it, that doesn't show loyalty to the server you are staff on. It wouldn't be great knowing that you might ditch our server just because we revamped/restarted it. Because I did not like how the server was becoming, too much unbalanced, and i did not like some decisions the owner was taking, like putting stats items for sell in the market when we already knew there were some dupers and didn't know how they were duping.
