Basic Information: Byond Account: randomonioum Character Name(s): Robyn Takada AI Name(s): R.A.I Have you ever used a different BYOND key on our server? If so what was it and why: Never ever ever. Skype: randomonioum/sex rob-omb Age: 20 Timezone: GMT+0 Active hours: Mostly between 6PM and 10PM, though it can vary a lot. Experience: Are you familiar with LS13's rules?I have checked them, and they are pretty much familiar to me now. Nothing exceptional to add here, I know the rules! How long have you played SS13?I have played for about 4 years now, with a break for a year. How long have you played LS13?I started playing on LS13 a few days ago (Try not to hold that against me, I simply adore the community from my short time here!). How much do you know about SS13 (/tg/ build) game mechanics?I am very familiar with the core mechanics of SS13, and /tg/ build is one of my favorites. I know most of the mechanics inside out, though the intricate details of each job may require me to look a few things up. I'm also appalling when it comes to genetics. Do you have any experience as an administrator for SS13?I have administrated for 2 servers in the past, though this was a year or two ago, the experience has translated well into other roles and hobbies and I don't think I have rusted. Do you have any experience as an administrator on anything else?If yes, what did you have to do do?I have administrated on multiple Garrys Mod servers, along with moderating on a few personal forums. Does Game Mastering for Tabletop RPGs count? Have you ever worked in a team before?I have worked as a team on multiple projects in University, as well as working at a printing firm. It required flexible working and the ability to respond to instructions and provide critical feedback, so I feel that this constitutes experience in teamwork. What are the qualities of a successful team?A team first and foremost must be able to communicate. Almost any other problem can be surmounted if proper dialogue can be maintained, and strengths leveraged. Otherwise, I would say that a diverse skill set is a good asset to maintain. Personality: Why do you play SS13?:I play SS13 as I enjoy the atmosphere of roleplay in a somewhat immersive environment. As much as I enjoy roleplaying verbally, there is something to be said for being able to actively immerse yourself in the environment, and not have to rely solely on the written or spoken word. Why do you play LS13?:I play LS13 because the community of players I find is incredibly conducive to roleplaying. While there are some who seem not to 'get' it, I haven't found anyone yet who is outright disruptive, and I can only presume that is through the efforts of the moderation and administration team. What do administrators do?:Administrators are there to ensure a fun environment. No more, no less. The rules set up a framework for this, and the admins will enforce those, but at the end of the day if people aren't having fun, there isn't much point in playing. Why do you want to be an administrator?:I want to give something back to a community that seems vibrant and fun, and more importantly contribute to that environment in a meaningful manner. I want to be able to set up fun events, and manage and teach those who might not understand what to do, or who are, intentionally or otherwise, disrupting the game.What qualities make a good administrator?:A good administrator is able to mediate conflict, find a suitable compromise, and enforce the rules fairly. On top of that, they must also be creative and flexible, and find the most fun they can in a situation. What qualities make a bad administrator?:A bad administrator abuses their privileges, taking advantage of the players of a server, and strips the fun from the game. They don't listen to advice or requests, and uses their position only to further their own enjoyment, rather than the enjoyment of the group. What are your strengths?I feel my strengths are good mediation between parties, and creativity. I thoroughly enjoy settling a dispute that could lead to people becoming upset, with all parties satisfied, if not completely happy. I also enjoy making up interesting scenarios, that others might not have seen before. What are your weaknesses?I feel my biggest weakness is my time management. I am known to forget to do things, and I am terrible when i comes to setting up a schedule. How do you overcome these weaknesses?In order to mitigate my time management skills, I try to find as much enjoyment in what I do as I can, so it doesn't feel like a chore to stop what I am doing and remember to do other things. I have also taken to setting copious amounts of alarms on my phone, to a decent amount of success! How well do you handle stress, anger, or insults?: Insults do not phase me in the slightest. I have grown up experiencing incredible amounts of bullying and homophobic slurs, and nothing bothers me at all any longer. While I rarely get angry or stressed, I know that I occasionally need to take a minute to walk away from a situation, and return with a calmer head.
