When did you first start playing Minecraft?
I first started playing minecraft when I was in 2nd grade (about 7-8 years ago) when one of my friends introduced me to the game at school. I played the game casually for 1-2 years until I lost interest in it. (This was on an account I shared with my brother at the time and not my current account). In 5th grad (4 years ago) I started playing vanilla again for a school project; as a result I got back into playing the game. As before after a while I started to lose interest so I began to search for new ways to play, that was when I discovered the technic launcher and subsequently the voltz mudpack. I played voltz religiously for around a year with some of my friends before once again losing interest. Earlier this year I decided to give voltz one last try and that was when I discovered OBNW. I have played on and off since but am starting to play more regularly now and will be playing with decent regularity after the upcoming reset.
What experiences do you have moderating a community or game?
I have only had one prior experience as being staff on a community minecraft server, this was on a vanilla server were I was given a role similar to that of a helper on OBNW. My job was to help and mentor new players needing assistance with building their bases and establishing a grasp on the more advanced concepts that were contained within that server. Apart from this I have assisted my friends manage their minecraft realms frequently. Apart from these instances I have not had any other staff or management roles in minecraft but look forward to hopefully becoming a member of the OBNW voltz staff team.
Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper?
I believe I should be a helper as, I enjoy assisting people both build and learn the intricacies of games that without assistance they may never learn. I want to be a helper because I feel an obligation to help people not only in the minecraft and voltz community but also in the real world. My philosophy is if someone wants to learn something bad enough, if it is within my ability to teach him or her then I will do everything in my power to do so.
Who are you?
I am a young student in Sydney, Australia, currently in high school. I aspire to study structural engineering (specialising in concrete structures) once I graduate from school and have finished my end of school exams in the form of the HSC (High Scholl Certificate). I am currently studying graphic technology at school (architecture, engineering all that stuff) and PASS (Physical activity and sports studies) as my elective subjects this year. My hobbies include, Playing water polo, and playing rugby. I also enjoy flying drones (like quad copters and stuff).
