What Server are you applying for?
I am applying for the Voltz server.
What is your In Game Name?
My in-game name is Fiinley. I would have preferred my actual name Finley but it was taken so I had to make an exception.
What is your TeamSpeak Name?
My teamspeak name is Finley so just without the extra “i”.
What is your time zone?
GMT ((+0) Fun fact I live in Greenwich, London where Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) was originated.))
When are you available?
On week days I can dedicate at least two hours plus, from around 4-5pm onwards which I believe is some decent hours for still being in my final year of secondary school which I have a week left of before I’m out of education and then I can dedicate more hours if needed. On the weekends, I can play on each individual day if I’m at home (as I play rugby sometimes on Sundays for my local team) at least 4-6+ hours a day on the weekends.
What is your In Game Rank? (/ar check rank and donator rank if applicable)
I am currently a StoneGuard soon to be BloodGuard in the next 8 hours as I’ve played 1 day 16 hours on the server.
When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? (Answer in depth)
I started playing Minecraft back in the beginning of 2012 and I’ve been in love with the game ever since. I originally had the name FlameDragon16 which I instantly changed when name changes became available because it is a god-awful cringe worthy name I made when I was 12. Anyway, back to the point. I’m sure when but one of the first mod packs I played was the Aether mod pack, I then began to watch YogsCast and I fell in love with Voltz through their series. I started playing the mod pack shortly after (in 2013) and I wasn’t that good (I’m still not now to be honest) but I’ve always loved the features of the pack especially power armour, I played the pack for around a year before I quit the game for a while. I then began playing again a couple months ago and I am back to the same old me but just with more knowledge of the pack.
What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? (Answer in depth)
I’ve had plenty of experience moderating and managing communities on multiple games. I’ve owned a PvP faction server before that had a medium following of around 30-40 players, which is shut down now, so I have knowledge on how running a server works and player relations. I was a moderator on a KitPvP server responsible for training helpers, moderating chat and banning hackers (with recorded evidence) I was then promoted to admin on that server and then community manager, and I was responsible for taking player feedback to improve the server, training community based moderators to moderate chat and help others with their issues and recording and storing evidence on the server data base which linked to the ban panel. I resigned from the server due to mock exams. When I returned to the game I joined another server and worked my way up to Head Moderator before resigning again for my second set of mocks exams a couple months later however this time I returned to my position and worked my way up to senior admin before the server shut down as the owners were going to host a Garry’s Mod DarkRP server which I was also an admin of, so I have mutli-game moderating experience.
Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? (Answer in depth)
As seen above throughout my time moderating and helping other communities I have learnt what it takes to help a player base grow and still stay cared for. I have much experience working in teams and taking orders which makes me a good member of a team, yet I have the capability to make decisions on my feet so I can deal with problems on my own if/when they arise. Since I’ve been on the server I’ve come to fall in love with it and the constant no stop action it provides but I’ve realised when I come on around 4-5pm there is no staff online and I would like to fill this gap so at no time the server isn’t unstaffed. In general I am a friendly and approachable person I would be delighted to help other on the server, and this position offers that opportunity to me.
