  2. mark | Surf NY | Moderator

    Name: Mark Age: 16 Working microphone?: Yes, a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma Timezone: EST (UTC-5) Country: United States Tell us about yourself: I’m a high school student looking to study computer science who plays surf for fun. I pride myself in good, hard work and like to do things the right way instead of cutting corners. Why do you want to be a Moderator?: I want to be a staff member because it would be a good opportunity to contribute to the server and server the awesome community. I feel like I will be capable of filling in a certain gap in the current staff roster, and I’ll strive to be a model staff member, one that newcomers after can look towards. I want to set a certain standard for staff members, while not stepping out of my place. Why should you become a Moderator?: I feel I am very qualified for this position because of my experience moderating young kids on a popular minecraft server a few years back. I also have experience in customer service and a filter I can apply when working in a professional setting from my old part time job. This would be useful when moderating Turtle Gaming because Counter-Strike is extremely toxic. In the fast food industry (where I worked) customers are often very unpleasant to deal with, but I understood that I am representing the people I worked for, so I still treated everyone with the same respect and professionalism. Past experience: Moderating a popular Minecraft creative server back in 2014-2015. Owned a minecraft server for a few months. My experience in Minecraft is relevant because I had to learn everything (commands, moderation etiquette, how to run a server) from square one and adapt quickly. Being active on the forums was a big part of these jobs, so I will definitely correct my activity on these. While working in fast food, I was not trained well, and had to adapt to a very stressful environment when I first started. So, although I do not have any experience on the moderation side of csgo, adjusting would not be a problem, and since I’ve been on the player-side of community servers for hundreds of hours, I have a pretty good idea. SCENARIOS: 1. Someone is mic-spamming/flaming or other in chat/voice; What do you do? Answer: 1) Regain control of the situation. 2) Issue a verbal warning to cease all rule-breaking behaviour. 3) If the behavior still persists, take further action. (mute, kick, etc. depending on the severity.) 2. Another member of staff is not correctly fulfilling their role, e.g. (Power abuse/Ignoring problems) what would be the correct course of action for you to take? Answer: If they are my superior or equal rank, record evidence, and bring it to someone higher up to take action. I would not take matters into my own hands, as they would correct their behaviour when they knew someone was watching. Thank you for reading my application, and have a good day!
