Recommended Posts

 

AetherNetwork Staff Application

  • In-Game Name (List ALL variations, if accepted your Forum/Discord name will be changed to your most used one): AnotherLoki/PaulBucco
  • Age: 20
  • Steam ID: https://steamid.io/lookup/STEAM_0:1:104910754
  • Discord Tag: Anotherloki
  • Total Playtime (24 hours/1 day REQUIRED): 112 Hours/4 days
  • Timezone: EST

  • Times you're most active (If you have an unpredictable schedule let us know): 7 pm-11 pm M-F/ 7 pm-4 am S-S My hours will have to be discussed because I am a Respiratory Therapist student. Since summer is coming Quickly, and with my schedule clearing up, I shouldn't have any issues following that schedule. Nonetheless- things do happen and I do not have any issues discussing more about this.

General Questions

  • How can you contribute to Aether?: Playing Gmod for so long, I understand that people keep playing this game because they have an attachment to it. Growing up, I didn't have a lot of games, almost none. Gmod has always been the game I woke up to and played every morning. I feel that I have the experience of knowing how the game works. I know the risks of servers crashing, how to engage with the communities within, and how to spread fun to other players. I feel that you need a person who can spread positive energy when playing or else the game feels like a game, not an experience. 
  • Have you read the rules fully, understand, and feel comfortable enforcing them as correctly as possible?:  Yes, I have fully read the rules and feel comfortable enforcing them as correctly and fair as possible.
  • Are you willing to listen to any Staff member guide you as a Staff, even if you feel you don't need to?:  Yes, I am willing to listen and cooperate with any staff member guiding me/training me/leading me even if I have an opposite opinion.
  • Are you certain you will be able to staff for 5 hours a week and finish 15 sits each week?:  Yes, I am completely certain I can staff 5 hours a week and finish 15 sits each week.

DarkRP Rule Questions

  • Raids can last how long?: Raids may last up to exactly ten minutes. Within the raid advert, raiders/basers may not spawn props, remove props, or use a tool gun. Additionally, the raider/baser may not change jobs. Doing so causes either the baser to cause an Avoid Raid or the Raider to commence a failed raid
  • If a player in your party dies whilst raiding, how long do they have to wait to come back and raid the same base again?:  When a Raider member dies during a raid, such a player must not participate in the raid. But, if a baser dies, the baser may come back to defend after their NLR is over. 
  • What initiates a raid?:  Initiating a raid can only be done if you have the specific Job. (Thief, police, premium, etc.) In this situation, as a thief, when raiding the PD. You must clearly state in an advert, "PD RAID", if you are raiding the bank you must advert "BANK- RAID". Once you commence the raid, you have exactly 10 minutes. Once you either complete the raid or die, you must advertise that the raid is over. ( /advert raid over/done )
  • If no raiding tool is being used can the player steal the item from a base without an advert?: If there is a base with a clear entrance, or out in the open, nothing blocking it, such as keypads, or locked doors, you may steal without an advert If your job entails it. In any other situation, you must advert raid.
  • Give an example of a valid raid advert (type it as you'd type it in-game): /advert raid
  • If the owner of the base is standing outside on their base entrance sidewalk as you're about to raid but haven't announced a raid yet, can you kill them?:  No. You must advert a raid before killing him/her. Doing this without an advert would be considered RDM.
  • If you get arrested mid-raid can you return after your arrest?: No. If you were reasonably arrested for raiding, you may not join back in the raid since any arrest is considered a death. So thus that person must follow the NLR and not participate until the raid is over.
  • If you get RDM'd are you allowed to kill the RDMer back without repercussions?: If you kill someone out of revenge that is considered Revenge RDM, and is treated the same as a RDM.
  • A player punches somebody unprovoked and runs away, the player who got punched calls a sit - what punishment would you give the instigator?: I would just simply tell them to stop and if they continue issue an ARDM.
  • List all default Laws of The Land: Raiding and stealing are illegal. Anything detected by contraband scanners is always illegal. Harming players is illegal unless you are inside your base defending. Laws can be enforced with KOS if the player is wanted.
  • How many bases can you own per party?: Every party is entitled to only one Raidable base and one RP base.
  • A player is refusing to co-operate with you in a staff sit, how do you handle the non-cooperative player?: If the player REFUSES to listen to any statements or sit requirements. Depending on the situation it could be lead to being muted or even in some cases the player results to being jailed.
  • Can you punish a player for intentionally ruining others time, even if they say it's out of fun?: Yes. This is considered as a minge and depending on the situation, harassment. Both are not appreciated and are punishable.
  • Give an example of a Staff abusing their powers and how you would handle it: An example of a staff member abusing their powers would have to be enabling God mode during a raid. I Would gather evidence and report it to a higher power.
  • A player is excessively RDMing, how would you intervene/stop them from continuing and what punishment would you give?: In a Mass Rdm situation I would excess the situation, and then freeze the player, bring the player over to conduct a sit, and issue a MRDM
  • A Mayor enabled a lockdown without reason and is refusing to turn it off, how do you resolve this?: In a situation where you have a possible minge, you'd want to get their point of view and know why they are doing this. If they just want to do it, I would verbally warn them, and if it consists I would demote them and issue a possible warn.

Extra Comments: Thank you, everyone, for my last application, hopefully, I fixed the mistake I made and used everyone's construction.

I can see there’s a lot of effort put into this, and most of your responses are at least partially right however,

while you are correct to say that your job must be allowed to raid and you must specify that you are raiding bank/pd this response does not answer the question asked “what initiates a raid” The correct answer would be something more along the lines of “You must initiate a raid before using any raid tool by using a raid advert: /advert raid”

Again while this would be partially correct by saying no you may not return to your raid. an arrest is not considered as a death and you do not receive an NLR timer after being arrested. In the case that you are arrested during a raid this simply means that the raid is over for whomever is arrested and they must wait the raid cooldown of 30 minutes after the advert is put in chat to raid again.

“ARDM” is not enforced, this would still be RDM even if a player was not killed and the question is not exactly answered again by saying you would issue an ARDM. you can find out more about the punishment guidelines by looking at the Staff Handbook.

!mute and !gag are useful commands to use during a sit in the case of someone not listening but you shouldn’t jail someone simply for non compliance. especially the player that made the ticket. jailing a player for anything other than what’s specified in the staff handbook is a little unjust and if you were to jail the player that made the ticket (depending on the situation) this would likely discourage them from reaching out to staff in the future.

How would you “issue a MRDM”?

 

I haven’t seen you a lot in game so i can’t really make an assessment on you as a person, nor have i seen your warnings yet but based off of the application in its current form i am +/- 

Leaning more towards -1

Okay thanks for the reply. I saw your responses and I do agree on the verdict. I will say I did not know about putting in commands because I would’ve done so accordingly but nonetheless I’m happy with the vote, if you have any additional questions to help you lean towards a +, I would be grateful. Thank you

Could you leave something I can use to fix my application in the future, thank you!

I redirected you to @James' post which listed the issues in the app, also would like to see more of you around as some people don't really know you yet.

Would recommend at the very least some consistency, like 2-4 hours a day would work.
