5 Hour game time since AR glitched out. Before that 200+ if not more. Senior staff will know.
When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? (Answer in depth)
All information will be checked
Started playing Minecraft in 2007 or 2008. Back when it only used to be what's now know as creative mode. Running for the lava was the usual game, don't remember what it was called again. I Have also played Tekkit Classic & Voltz for a couple of years during high school. Voltz caught my attention in 2015 around this time of the year. Been playing it actively for almost a year in 2015-2016 if I recall correctly. Before that time I played Tekkit classic, which was for a period of 6 months actively or something. I have also played Tekkit Legends for a couple of months. Haven't really played Pixelmon for more than a few days though. The reason i especially like Voltz the mod pack has just the right size to master it in terms of knowledge.
What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? (Answer in depth)
Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfill?
As some of you my know, I am an ex-staff member. Started as a helper on Voltz, went up to moderator. After which I started working on the FTB Infinity server as a manager. During that time I have also developed some OBNW content for the servers. This has been a great source of fun.
Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? (Answer in depth)
Please answer thoroughly
First of all, like said before. It's a great source of fun. I know the game very well. The community used to like me, time will learn if the current players like me too. Also, it appears to me that Voltz can use a more experienced staff member. It will be great to be able to help this server out again. It's by fast one of, if not the best Voltz server out there. But please implement my camouflage module patch though. I need resources...
Who are you?
Give us a little information on yourself
So my in-game name is Hipster, a 20 year old male from the Netherlands. Currently I am studying Applied Physics at uni. Like said, the study started a bit rough. Causing me to spend complete days from morning till late evening on it. However it's looking like i might even pass the complete first year. Which is nice! I also work as a light-operator & laserist. Soundtech could also fit my job label, but i prefer to stick with light & lasers. Last summer i used to do events with artists varying to local dj's to Rammstein, Rihanna, Coldplay and more. Besides this i mainly do private events or events up to 3k people. It's all about time management. I'd love to do the bigger ones, but there just is no time left on my schedule.
Oh and i also used to program a lot, in Java. Almost forgot about that. I used to own Runescape private servers (rev. 718) a couple of years ago, fully coded them myself. Starting with an empty build of course. Apart from Java, i also know Python now. We had a course in this at uni, passed it with an 84%. Apart from the basics it was mainly data analysis. I'm still looking for a summer project. Since i'm greatly interested into AI, there might be a project coming during those 2 months. A Minecraft AI? Vision related though, no mods. Those are just ideas that i have been having for a couple of months now. It's also one of the reasons to come back to OBNW. Although i can't and shouldn't say that i have time to start coding again. But it's plausible to happen in the near future, during the summer break.
What is your Age?
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
This is nothing to do with what mods / plugins you know and don't know or how good of a builder you are. We are asking what intellectual attributes you have and if you have any flaws in your personality (trust me, we all do) - you can list them via bullet points or write a paragraph or two
I'm great with all sorts of people. Sometimes too great. Meaning that I can be too soft or trusting towards others. I like to have chats with others and socialize. Another thing is that i tend to focus on something very much and then suddenly let go. This occurs often with games and other things in general. However, I've been thinking about coming back to OBNW for a couple of months now. So this should all be good. It's not like i'll have a too time demanding role anyway. Moreover, helping people is just in my genes. Adding towards to knowledge of others with a positive attitude and vibe is in my genes. Another thing is that i started to love physics & math so much, that i might occasionally fill the chat with it. This can be either good or bad.
Additional Information (optional)
I understand that it has been a while since my last visit. However, I genuinely hope to make a come back to OBNW and contribute to the community. It'll be good to teach the players more advanced methods of Voltz. Also, the legend Shedza shouldn't be forgotten. Also, since i've switched computers and ISP it might be possible that my TS account does not show up as my original one. Might need to wire up my "old" PC to fix this. But i don't use that one anymore...
