Thread title, also what was it like after resigning ( if u have )
to staff the servers
i never resigned
it was like I was no longer staff
Staff gives me infinite mic battery.
Because I'm a power hungry madman who gets his jollies off by flexing my power in front of people I don't know.
Tfw funny haha joke applies to other people on the moderation team
pesni and @RyanHighman (but i was first heehehe)
I was invited to apply to be a Mod and I gladly accepted. Had to resign though cause I had to leave for BCT
Edit: RIP @Pomegranate
to deal with people like you
Well at least, the current administration (except for me) havent had a finger in your past toxicity bans, so why not see that as a positive side of your views? with some of the previous administration you would probably have been a goner again for another 12 weeks.
Back on topic tho. Ever since I joined in 2016, I have always tried to be of help to the staff and the community, I was reporting rulebreaks left and right, some may have seen me as annoying, others thought of me as a Backseatmoderator. And then there was the people that I would get along with, play with and encourage me to apply.
In the end it took me 3 years to actually apply after countless former staff telling me I should.
I played Gmod for many years, I think since 2011 maybe 10. And I staffed at every community I was with for a total of 5 years, SGM was like a place I could quiet down, but my old habits of staffing and wanting to help around didnt die down for those 3 years I didnt staff for.
So I applied mid 2019, so I could be of more help. Later this year will mark the day of staffing for 2 years.
I may be very optimistic when I say this, but staffing for 2 years, you see a lot of people come and go, its sad when people you have become aquainted with leave. But its even better, to help out your new Aquaintences.
Everyone are free to any opinions on me, good or bad, but at the end of the day, Im here to help, where I can and when I can.
im just power hungry right @Marshal Zuijj ?
Big dick energy.
became staff to befriend the staff team cause they cool, resigned twice due to me getting bored of gmod.
I mean it's a community that I really enjoy being a part of and I thought "why not be staff" It's been a fun experience every time I do it, I've just had to step down each time due to some dumb personal shit that I'd been dealing with*
*Except for my tenure in 2015 where I was just a power hungry shithead teenager
It's fun, let's me get to know the staff team better (they're all nice people), doing reports gives the game more depth and things to do, helps keep servers in control and ensure everyone is having fun, plus i can a̶b̶u̶s̶e̶ have fun with people in more ways. Makes the game more meaningful
Oh no my ban history has been exposed to the entire community how humiliating, wah wah.
I never said I don't have a positive viewpoint, I am quite fond of many of the past and present mods. However certain behaviors and actions are just downright dumb. While yes, some previous mods were shit, and did indeed ban me despite doing nothing to others, many now are better.
One thing that I find rather interesting is how mods can pull the toxicity card, but then those such as yourself respond in a rather rude fashion. Seems a bit toxic and hypocritical to me, but thanks for proving my point.
The first time I applied, it was because I was very new to Gmod, and this server was the first one I found I liked enough to come back repeatedly. After around 5 months I decided I had enough experience to try and become staff.
The second time was because after resigning, it became a little boring playing the game and nothing else. I found myself trying to use commands, sending msgs in adminchat forgetting I couldn't see any responses, stuff like that. It felt like I wasn't part of the community anymore despite playing the same amount, it was a lot less interaction.
On a sidenote, I can say the most eye-opening part was the amount of reports that can come in a single map. Most players only have the reference of how much they make reports, or get reported. You don't really think about the reports you can't see, which makes it easy to complain when a report takes a few rounds to close, or it takes a little time to gag/mute, etc. It'd be nice if players could stop and consider that, especially when servers are packed.
for me in the beginning, being a young and naïve boy, it was half for the position within the community; ie wanting to be liked and recognized, and the other half was to handle shit myself, i thought a lot of mods/staff were slow at attending to the needs of the server like gagging people, telling people not to be dicks, handling rdm reports faster, yknow the usual
applying later was mainly to get the staff team forums back and see what drama had been stirring up and hanging out with all the homies that were also staff at the time and being goons.
For me personally, I really enjoy this community and I try my best to have good interactions with as many people as I can. Which made me want to apply for staff and while making good interactions also being able to keep them having fun while I took care of the people mic spamming/ hacking and in general causing a ruckus on the severs. I also try mixing my trollish personality with my staffing hoping to cause some laughs from the player base making them want to come back. In general, I like seeing people happy and being able to maintain a peaceful server while also letting everyone yell and scream and enjoy themselves after a long day of the real world is my ultimate goal. I cannot make everyone happy as there are members of the community that dont like me but in the end one can only try. and that is the reason I became staff
Dumb and retarded basically
Edit: young and dumb is what I meant but I'm just proving that I'm dumb and retarded sooooooooo
