Depending on the day, but two plus hours on average.

How long have you been playing Minecraft?:
I've been playing Minecraft since at least 2012, when I made my Minecraft forum account.

Do you have any bans on our server? (If so, explain. If you have had a successful ban appeal, please provide a link):
I do not have any bans on your server.

Have you been a member of another community’s staff, or have relevant work experience? If so, please describe your experience. (Be sure to include your position, server name, length of time served, and a link to the community’s website if available):
I was a previous server owner when I was younger, as well as ran a gaming community with a friend. Currently I work as an IT consultant administrating servers professionally.

Why do you want to be a moderator on CraftersCove?:
I wish to become a moderator to expand my set of tools for helping others as well as make a positive impact on the community.

Why do you believe you are qualified to be a moderator on the server?:
I believe I'm qualified to become moderator from my previous experience, as well as my multiple years of retail experience. I have a customer-facing mind, but with the technical backing to validate what I'm saying.

How would you like to see the CraftersCove community improve?:
I would like to see CraftersCove community improve by creating a positive environment where others trade with shops, talk more in chat, and build a towny community which they'll always want to come back to.

What are 3 qualities you have that you feel you could improve?:
One quality I feel I could improve is how I deal with stress. Sometimes I don't release my own stress emotionally, which leads to anxiety. Another quality I could improve is empathy. I have a black-and-white mindset of the world from my education in computers and mathematics, so I need to remember not to be logical about everything all the time. The final quality I could improve is my organization. I've become much better over time, but I still am slow with events such as getting my oil changed.

In each scenario, assume that you are in a Moderator position. Briefly, explain to the best of your abilities how you would respond to each situation.
1. You are playing a game and you see a player whose actions seem suspiciously like hacking. However, you are not quite certain. What do you do?
There are many ways to approach the situation, depending on what actions they are taking, etc. If I have access to Spartan, I would look over if the player is throwing any triggered events. I would make conversation with the player to analyze the way they talk, depict how their attitude is towards others and the server, and watch how their player is acting in-game. While there are many different reasons for why a player's behavior could be suspicious, as well as why the anti-cheat is detecting the player, but when combined with an investigation it is typically obvious if they're hacking or not.

2. A player on the forums publicly accuses you of abusing your powers. They claim to have proof and are demanding that you be fired. What do you do?
I would apologize for any confusion which may have stemmed from whatever conversation the player and I had and ask them to show the proof on the forum so others could see and say their input. If the server works as a community to check on both the staff and players, it will stay a healthy and open environment with open dialog between staff and players.

3. Two players on Discord are verbally fighting in a public channel with 5 other people, and things are getting out of hand. What do you do?
If two players are verbally arguing on Discord and it got out of hand, I would move them to a private chat with myself in it. I would interrupt the two players, and have them each say their mind one at a time. While their talking, I would ask questions to bring up the reason behind their actions with the other player, and often once both see where the other was coming from, the original issue is resolved.

4. You are watching the newest video of your favorite Streamer / YouTuber, who happens to be a popular player on the server. Suddenly, you realize they are using a hacked client during the recording. What do you do?
If a popular streamer or YouTuber was on our server and was using a hack client, I would gather stream evidence or YouTube videos and send it to g or Dill. It feels a little out of position for me to determine the punishment based on what amount of influence the YouTuber/Streamer brings (though if it wasn't a big streamer/YouTuber I would likely ban).

5. A player is incessantly spamming an annoying phrase over and over again. How would you handle this player?
If you guys have chat filters I would apply a chat filter over the phrases he is saying. Otherwise I would temp mute and ask him to stop spamming, as it is against Rule #2. If he has any previous punishments, I may mute depending on the situation.

I, rilesthegiles, accept the responsibilities by donating my own time by watching over the CraftersCove Community and agree that the abuse of my powers may result in a demotion, permanent ban from the server, and/or removal from the website. I also agree that by donating my time I am not entitled to compensation of any form nor am I to expect promotion.

Thanks for brushup on BBCode
