Give some context about setting of C24 within the Half Life universe (150 words+):

City 24 (C24) is a combine-controlled city located in Geneva, Switzerland. The city is built on the ruins of a time before the Combine and has many large structures for residential use and military garrisons. The city also has a train station that connects it back to C17 in Riga, Latvia.

The city itself is decorated heavily in union barriers that create a sense of union under the banner of the ancient Geneva eagle crest. C24 has a theatre that the populace can use as well a large sewer system that is often used by non-loyalists and ne’er-do-wells. There are two tiers for the large residential areas, the locations near the Nexus are for loyalists and therefore are much more expensive and well catered for. On the other end of the city is the slums, a dark and dingy area with smaller apartments in the ruins of the old city, you can find many poorer citizens and non-loyalist types in this area of the city. The disparity of the housing situation acts as an incentive for the citizens to be loyal to the cause and lead a much better quality of life.


Have you read the server rules and are you familiar with them?

 I have read and understood the community rules on the discord server, I am not aware that the server rules have been released yet but I will read them as soon as they are available.


Have you read the punishment list and are familiar with it?:

 It has not yet been released.

Explain how you would handle these scenarios as a staff member:


1 ) You are told by a player in admin chat that another player is randomly killing people:

 I would check the logs to see if this player had been killing people and then proceed with applicable punishment for mass RDM (Probably a 2 day ban if my knowledge from SWRP serves me)


2 ) You are asked by a player about how to join a faction:

Currently, I'm not sure on the process yet, at the moment I would say to put an application in on the discord server and be interviewed like I did for CP


3 ) You catch somebody not performing RP and messing around:

Depending on the role they are playing I would act accordingly, as Winter said in the training yesterday if the player was in a CP or OTA role they are supposed to be in character 100% of the time so I would warn them for failRP. The question is highly dependant on what is meant by "messing around".


4 ) Somebody acquires a rank but is not willing to RP with it properly:

 I'm unsure of the ability of staff at the moment so I would report it their commander and let them deal with the situation unless I'm told otherwise in staff training.


5 ) A player is prop spamming:

I would warn them initially and explain that they aren't supposed to do that, if they then carried on I would kick them for prop spamming and give them a second warning.


6 ) Somebody does not agree with the outcome of an RP situation therefore he decides to break RP and act OOC:

 I would explain to the person that sometimes things don't go as planned in RP and the best thing they can do is just to calm down and then offer a staff sit with both parties to attempt to resolve the situation away from game.


7 ) You bring a player into a sit and punish him however he does not agree with your decision and keeps arguing:

I warn them for continuing the matter after a resolution has been made and that if he wants to dispute my decision then he should go to the forums and make a claim there where it can be dealt with.


8 ) Someone commits FailRP but claims the specific instance of FailRP you warned him for is not explained in detail within the rules: 

I would tell them that it's clear that they are trying to find loopholes in the rules and therefore I would warn them accordingly.


9 ) A player evidently breaks a rule however he makes a good point in his defence by abusing loopholes within the rules:

I would warn them for abusing loopholes and would bring these up at the next staff meeting so we can prevent a similar situation arising in the future.


Answer the following questions in detail:


1 ) Explain the difference between Tier I rule-breaking and punishments and Tier II rule-breaking and punishments:

 I can't due to the punishments and server rules not being released yet.

My guess would be that a tier 1 rule break would be something like prop spamming or a mild failRP and a punishment would be a warning. As for tier 2 I would expect that to be a situation like mass RDM and it would be an instant ban or kick.


2 ) Explain the difference between IC and OOC. Also define Meta Gaming in relation with the two:

 IC: In character would be all actions and decisions that the player's game character would make based on their in-game knowledge, this would be down to the conversations a player has with another player, IC they would not use outside references or game information that their characters wouldn't know. This also 


Meta-Gaming: The use of OOC knowledge to influence an IC decision, such as a rebel wearing a Combine disguise, a Combine faction character would be classed as metagaming if they didn't find out that the other player was wearing a disguise through IC actions, such as something being off about their actions or behaviour causing a rise in suspicion leading to interrogation that would discover the truth.


3 ) Explain the difference between Serious RP and Semi-Serious RP:

 Serious RP would be like CP where people are required to stay IC at all times to create an atmosphere and build the in-game would to feel more immersive.

Semi-Serious RP is more relaxed on the level of strictness than Serious RP and focuses more on the freedom aspect of RP whereas Serious RP focuses much more on being lore friendly and creating an immersive atmosphere for the players.


4 ) Define PassiveRP and explain its role and importance in a serious RP gamemode, also explain your view on the two within our gamemode:

 Passive RP is also seen as a world-building tool and is hugely important in game modes that are largely life based situations such as DarkRP or the civilian side of Nazi RP, there are no formations or drills that players will regularly run but instead they are Job Bloggs who only buys his newspaper on rainy days and eats fish and chips on the pier or something along those lines, it's simple and plausible and that helps create the immersive world role-players want to be a part of.

PassiveRP is also where you will see commands like /me for players that want to perform an action and will describe what they are doing more than with what their physical avatar can actually show.


5 ) Define the term of Combat Baiting:

 Combat baiting is when a player will provoke somebody in order to get a reaction that would be classed as combat RP. This could be from plain fighting to an arrest.


6 ) Define Power Gaming / Power RP:

Powergaming is when a player makes an action against another player and presumes that their action is successful in the interaction without giving the other player a chance to respond or fight back against the first player. An example of this would be in a situation where rolling would be used to determine a winner, powergaming is when the first player will skip over this without checking to make sure that all parties involved agree to skipping it in order for the first player to win that encounter.


7 ) Define the term FailRP:

FailRP is where a player makes an action or says something that is not explicitly stated as OOC and that action is not lore-friendly for the character they are role-playing as. For example if a player equipped something that is not likely to appear in their inventory would be FailRP such as a pacifist character like a Doctor equipping or using a gun.


8 ) Define the term FearRP: 

Fear RP is when your character is being threatened by someone else, forcing your character to do something that would otherwise be FailRP if they weren't being threatened.



Explain in length and detail as to why you deserve staff more than other applicants. Explain what you will bring to the staff team and your strongest assets as a person/potential staff member (250+ words):

I should be chosen as a member of the staff team because I have a great love for helping others and I enjoy teaching people things that I have come to learn in my time on RP servers, for example I would often train cadets on SWRP despite being a relatively high rank and it wasn’t as expected for me to do so, I would also help people learn how to use the building tools in both trainings and 1 on 1’s within my time in game.

I’m a confident and social person and I’m very approachable both in game and out, I like to think that I’m generally a very easy person to become friends with as I don’t like to press my opinion on something.

I’m a very mature person for my age which I think is reflected in my professional career becoming management at the age of 21 which has also allowed me to learn to be level-headed when dealing with serious topics such as dismissals and disciplinary processes. My career also means that I maintain high standards in everything I do as in my line of work if a mistake is made someone will most likely lose their life.

Being an adult I don’t have any ties that may prevent me from coming online such as school work or university exams, this would allow me to minimise my time off for LOA/ROA’s. The current crisis of COVID-19 also means that I’m working from home and therefore time won’t be taken up by my commute to and from work, I can also come online when I have a gap in meetings or decide to finish early for the day.

Whilst I don’t have any experience in staffing a Garry’s Mod server I am a fast learner and I’m also prepared to learn a lot very quickly. I have some knowledge of basic tools like whitelisting due to time as a Trial EXO in SWRP which would allow me to use some of the simpler commands without much training if any.

  • No past staff experience
  • You don't warn for prop spam you ban them permanently since it is an attempt to crash the server
  • Tier 1 rule breaking is for newer players or misunderstandings whereas tier 2 rule breaking is for those who have received lots of warns recently or for things like Mass RDM (like you said)
  • Don't know you personally but from your app you seem like an alright lad so would find fitting in with the staff team easy
  • Is already a part of CP so prepared for the Serious RP that comes with the server

I've seen you around a fair bit in DU, you can listen, learn, and respond well
You've motivated those around you, it's a good quality.
You've got a willingness to learn, albeit teaching you on an environment such as this would be peculiar, yet the skills would be applicable elsewhere.

Ok so, I read your staff app and I come to the conclusion to give you a -1 
The first reason is that your staff application seems for me to be a bit rushed, the evidence is in the application, you forgot to add the "Why should you be staff" question. (You have it now tho after Dimmy told you)

On 5/12/2020 at 8:35 PM, FrankieBoiledEgg said:


And you did not defined what OOC means / is.
So I think you rushed the application and you didn´t checked if everything is there / correct.

The second reason why I give you a -1 is that the answeres are thin, not detailed and some of them are wrong, e.g this question:

On 5/12/2020 at 8:35 PM, FrankieBoiledEgg said:

 I would check the logs to see if this player had been killing people and then proceed with applicable punishment for mass RDM (Probably a 2 day ban if my knowledge from SWRP serves me)

So you said here that you would give someone who RDMed others a 2 days ban for MRDM, really?
When you have someone who has been MRDMing he would get a permanent ban and not just a two days ban.
You explained what you would wrong, in this case you can´t just check the logs and ban him, Jail TP him to an admin sit area and talk to him why he even did it, if he says that he did it just for fun he did MRDM and he clearly shows NITRP, and that is a permanent ban.

So, I think you aren´t ready for staff yet, you can try it again soon and I hope you will give yourself more time with writing this application.

Since you were missing quite a few things I would normally give a -1 but as I know you for a time in SWRP and know you are a very competent aswell as nice and mature person I will give it a neutral.
Anyway good luck
