Below you will find my application for staff, all jokes aside this is a 100% serious application and reflects my goals, interests and aspirations as a potential member of the Varrock staff team. To the application --
Eastern Standard (UTC -5)
Where are you from?:
I was born in Chicago, lived for awhile in STL and within the past few years moved to NYC. I live in an apartment complex with the Server Manager, @Zio.
How long have you been a part of the Varrock Community?:
Since shortly after Zio joined, as he told me about it. I'm not the most active person but I have the ability to act professionally and provide timely feedback, alongside my critical decision making skills.
Are you active in-game, on discord, and on the forums?:
Increasingly so, but as I stated above I'm not the most active person. I do put my personal life and work before Varrock. I think everyone should unless of course this is their job.
Why would you like to be part of the Varrock staff team?:
I've never had a problem with being a staff member, I just usually strayed away from/declined positions of power in the past due to the community, if I am honest. I was offered a staff position (and held one) on a server I currently play that has been running for 1.5+ years. I quickly removed myself from staff level duties due to the playerbase and it's toxicity. I have yet to run into that toxicity here, so, honestly, I'd like to give this server's staff team a shot. I think I have some serious value to add. I believe @Jacoband @Monk Bird would vouch for my good character.
What are some strengths you posses?:
Critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, humor (yes, that's a skill), the ability to form coherent sentences, and I will tell you like it is. I'm not a sugarcoater. If you're looking for someone who butters everything up and pretends the world is all sunshine and rainbows, then I would advise you to disregard this staff application.
What are some of your weaknesses you posses?:
I think "telling it like it is" can be both a weakness and a strength. I also have a lot of priorities that come before Varrock - school, work, my personal life (to name a few).
Please describe any experience in leadership roles you currently have or have had:
I listed this above, but I'll recap - I was a moderator (with admin acc access and forum administrator access) on a currently running server with an average playercount of 50+ for several months. I resigned/removed myself from the equation due to toxicity of the server and its administration. I am also a manager IRL at my job, where I work for the 4th busiest location of my particular business in the entirety of the United States (of which there are 2,200 locations).
Why should we choose to promote you as opposed to someone else's application?:
I am significantly more mature (when necessary) than probably 99% of the entire RSPS community. That in an of itself should speak volumes.
What are some recognizable ways in which you've helped the community?: I'm talkative on discord, and I've mentioned the server to a few buddies. I have not made any significant impact however, if I am completely honest.
In a short paragraph, please briefly explain what you hope to bring to Varrock in this position and what you hope to achieve in the future?:
Honestly, I just want to bring the staff team piece of mind and the playerbase the same. I dislike servers where the two communities are separated from each other and I think I can bring a sense of union to the likes of both. I also bring alongside me professionalism and perfectionism which I believe both go a long way in changing the overall experience for the better.
Do you understand that if you break and rules, abuse your power, fail to follow the Staff handbook, or end up being a horrendous staff member you will be demoted and might have further actions taken against you depending on the severity of your offense?:
Thank you for taking the time to read my application,
