  9. What Server are you applying for? Voltz 1.12.2 What is your In-Game Name? BlackSkyCloud - Nickname: SkyCloud What is your Discord Name and ID? Hinnik#2941 What is your time zone? Where are you from? My timezone is GMT+2 and I am from the Netherlands. When are you available? I am able to play on the server in the evenings on weekdays, and on sunday during weekends. I'm usually available on Discord, though. What time can you dedicate to the server on week-days and week-ends? Due to my full time internship, it is only possible for me to play in the evenings (6pm - 10pm GMT+2) on week-days until early november. However, I can still be very active on Discord. I work on saturdays, but expect to see me online throughout the day on sunday. I try to be as active as I possibly can. Expect to see me online more often in two months, when my internship has ended and regular school (with shorter days) starts. What is your In Game Rank? My current rank is StoneGuard. I have also purchased the Titan donator rank. When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? I bought Minecraft in 2012 and have loved it ever since. I thought the possibilities in Vanilla were endless and was obviously blown away when I discovered Tekkit Classic, probably around 2013 - 2014. After having played Tekkit for ages, I switched to some other modpacks, and finally to Voltz. I do not remember exactly when I joined the Oblivion Networks Voltz server, but 2017 sounds about right. What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? Outside of Vanilla and modded Minecraft, I have not been assigned any staff roles or responsibilities to moderate a game or community. My answer to the next question contains a more in-depth description of my experience as a staff member. Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfil? The first staff role I've been given was all the way back on a Minecraft Classic server! I don't remember what my task was, just that I wasn't ready for it. I was 11 - 12 years old, and had no experience at all. It taught me a few things though, like how quickly you can get demoted by not doing your job! That is the only one that really stands out. I have been a part of other staff teams as well, both Vanilla and modded. Most staff roles required me to monitor the chat, answer questions and assist players, but each one allowed me to gain more experience. Then, around 2017, I joined the Oblivion Voltz staff team. I had my ups and downs, but learned a lot as a Helper and eventually as a ChatMod. Looking back at that time, I believe I've come a long way and I am ready to be a part of this staff team again. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? While playing on Voltz 1.12.2, I have noticed a lot of new players who are unfamiliar with Voltz, or even modded Minecraft as a whole. I find myself helping these players a lot by answering their questions, but due to obvious trust issues in a pack like this, I am not able to help them out in any other way. By becoming a Helper, I hope it will be easier for players, experienced or not, to trust me and ask me for help. I see myself as a friendly person, and I am always prepared to assist in any way I can. Unfortunately, I have also noticed some toxicity and racism going on in chat. As a staff member I hope to be able to reduce this. Who are you? I'm Kevin, a laid back college student who aims to become a software engineer in the future. I would say I'm a good mixture of friendliness and sarcasm. I enjoy watching movies, playing games, wasting money on AliExpress and Wish, and adding more useless RGB to my PC setup. What is your Age? I am 19 years old. What are your strengths and weaknesses? My strengths include that I am a helpful and friendly person, speak decent English despite it not being my native language, and am open to criticism. I'm as good at working in a team as I am working alone. A few of my weaknesses: I get shy in big groups, so I will be relatively quiet in potential Discord meetings. I tend to get bored quite easily, and am sometimes a bit forgetful of (possibly important) things. I may also procrastinate, which is a thing I am trying to improve on. Additional Information (optional) It's good to be back. I've missed playing Voltz ever since the server became less popular, and the release of Voltz 1.12.2 came as a pleasant surprise. I hope to have as much fun now as I had back on the old server!

  13. What Server are you applying for? Voltz What is your In Game Name? BlackSkyCloud (Nickname: SkyCloud) What is your TeamSpeak Name? SkyCloud What is your time zone? CET (GMT+2) When are you available? During the weekends I'll spend most of my time on this server. However, on schooldays the time I can be online will vary. It will most likely be somewhere between 3 to 6 hours. What is your In Game Rank? My playtime is 9 days, but this is only because I couldn't get my AutoRank time back after the reset. Before this, I was an Admiral with about 20 days played. I have also purchased the Legend rank. When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? I believe I discovered Minecraft around six years ago. I would play Minecraft Classic multiplayer (And somehow actually got a staff rank there) until I decided to buy Minecraft at the age of 12, five years ago. Even though Vanilla Minecraft is very fun to play, back then I found the game repetitive and simply no longer enjoyable after achieving most stuff in game. I can't exactly remember how I found out about the Technic Launcher, I must have seen it on a video. Anyway, I still find modded Minecraft very enjoyable, and Voltz is definitely my favorite pack. It is one of the first packs I played, together with Tekkit Classic and Big Dig, two modpacks which were back then still featured in the modpack list by default. I prefer Voltz over other modpacks because it's fairly easy to learn but hard to master, and because I like a modpack based on PvP and raiding above anything else. What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfill? I have been given various staff roles on Vanilla, Tekkit and Voltz. The first one being on a Vanilla server, in the same year I discovered Minecraft. On Tekkit Classic I was trusted with the rank of Admin, which went pretty well. Then obviously I received the ChatMod rank on this server. I was also an Admin on a Vanilla server that closed down a few weeks ago. There, I worked with numerous plugins and it was simply a very useful experience. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? I would like to be a Helper because I have noticed that there are plenty of people online at times when the staff members aren't. This can cause fights between players without anyone to break them up. I believe that I can be useful to this server because there will be someone to monitor the chat at more times. Who are you? I'm a Dutch guy that likes to interact with other people and have fun. I started playing Voltz quite a long time ago and I have been enjoying it ever since. I enjoy helping other players, and don't mind to explain something to a player when they're having trouble. What is your Age? 17 What are your strengths and weaknesses? Considering that English is not my native language, I may sometimes have minor flaws in for example my grammar. However, since I'm Dutch and I speak a few words of German and French, I can also communicate with foreign players that don't speak English at all. I won't quit easily because I'm determined to get things done and to finish what I start. My biggest weakness is judging in what way a person means something just by reading their text. This is for example a bad thing when a player is joking around and it's not clear whether they're offending anyone. Besides that, I find it hard to come up with more weaknesses, even though I most likely have them. I hope you take this application into consideration. BlackSkyCloud
