Where are you from?
Based in the UK, originally from Pakistan
How long have you been part of the Varrock Community?
Since 3 days before the launch of Varrock, I'd chat in the discord regularly to put forward my excitement.
How many hours do you spend online daily?
Anywhere between 3 - 8 hours depending on college work.
Are you active in-game, discord, and our forums?
Why would you like to be part of the Varrock Staff Team?
I'd like to better help the community and players with various sever-related issues/questions and also with general OSRS knowledge. I like engaging with people and helping out, a position on the staff team would better enable me to do this.
What are some of the strengths you possess?
I've been playing Runescape for 12 years and OSRS since its release, so I have plenty of game knowledge. I'm also good at settling disputes and adapting quickly to new situations to find the best and most efficient solution.
What are some of your weaknesses you posses?
I can't always commit loads of time every single day - during a period of exams or particularly stressful time IRL I will prioritise it over gametime. I also tend to be non-confrontational, I don't enjoy telling people to simply shut up and instead might take a longer time explaining why their rational is flawed. Additionally I have no technical server-side experience - so if it comes down to specific game mechanics or alterations I will be little help, although I'm always happy to learn on the job!
Please describe any experience in leadership or staff roles you currently have or had:
I've been a member of staff from Server Support up to Moderator on three different RSPS, and have had staff positions in other video game communities of varying importance.
Why should we choose to promote you as opposed to someone else's application?
I am extremely non-competitive as I believe games are meant to be enjoyed. Because of this I am always impartial and don't let emotion colour my opinion or cloud my judgement, something not everyone can say for themselves.
What are some of the recognizable ways in which you helped the community?
I've participated and raised awareness for every event I could be present for to date, as I'm a big fan of community events to bring people together in an otherwise grind-intensive game.
In a short paragraph, please briefly explain what you hope to bring to Varrock with this position and what you hope to achieve in the future:
I want to host and/or organise more community events as well as be better able to act as a medium to relay popular opinion through polls to create a server that players can be happy and proud to play. The removal of toxicity through social intervention and QoL changes is a big aim of mine and I hope to be able to make it happen one day.
Do you understand that if you break any rules, abuse power, fail to follow the Staff handbook, or turn out to be a horrendous Staff Member, you will be demoted and might have further actions taken against you depending on your offenses?
Yes, of course!
