    Trophy Points:
    1) Basic Information -
    • Minecraft username: KelpDoesMC
    • Previous Minecraft usernames: MikeINC
    • Timezone: West America
    • Age (Note: You must be 13 or over to apply): 14
    • Do you have access to Skype and a working microphone? (yes/no) Yes (You should use discord instead)
    • Do you have the ability to record Minecraft video? Yes
    • Gaming Twitter link: (If you have one) No
    • Are you multilingual? (Fluent in multiple languages. Not just learning one.) No
    2) Where are you most active on the DerpCraft Network?
    What game types do you play? Do you actively use the forums? Do you enjoy being in game more? Etc..?

    Personally my favorite game is kit pvp, but I am well adaptable to learning the ins and outs of other games for I myself had port forwarded a Minecraft server before and set up plugins to make mini games, and well known games. (Bed Wars, Kit Pvp, Factions, Hunger Games, Etc,). I just logged onto the forums and created a account. I am familiar though with forums and will not have a problem with it. ( To sum it all up; You can put me anywhere with the right tools and I will apply what I know to make the community happy.

    3) How much time do you have to contribute to the role?

    I have a flip flop schedule and school as you can see on my age. (Example of Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturdays, Sundays; for one week> Other would be Wednesday, and Thursday; I can dedicate my time once my required things are done.

    4) Have you ever been banned or punished on any server? If so, please include details.

    Not yet and I hope nothing comes to that.

    5) SCENARIO: Suppose it's your first week of being a Helper and you mute a well-known player. Their friends start spamming your twitter calling you a bad Helper and telling you to unmute them. What would you do?

    I would state that the player has been muted for breaking the rules and can always appeal on the forums. If the kids continued to spam then I would simply block them. If the kids were on the server spamming me then I would simply warn them three times to stop before muting them for about two hours for disrespect to staff.

    6) Tell us about one of your best moments on the DerpCraft server

    So far logging in, and seeing the fun maps that are created for the players.

    7) Tell us about a time you made a mistake within the last year? How did you deal with it? What did you learn?

    In the last year one of my mistakes was accidentally not closing my Minecraft leaving my account exposed for siblings to have access. Nothing happened thank goodness and it reminded me about responsibility.

    8) If you have any, what hobbies or activities are you involved in outside of Minecraft?

    (Sports, Entertainment, Education, Family stuff, Chores) Examples; Soccer, hanging out with a friend, school, family talks or events, taking out the trash or firewood.

    9) Do you have any previous server moderation or leadership experience?
    If so explain what role you played, what skills/experiences you picked up and how this will help you in your role as a helper.

    Before you read this just know that I am always ready to learn new things and make the best of it.
    Yes. The downside is that the servers I were on were considerately small. I did become familiar with these commands: Ban, Mute, Vanish, Fly, anti-cheat commands. These commands were commonly used by me and other staff. As a staff member I played in a role in enforcing the rules, and answering questions for players.
    I would try my best to set a good example of myself to the crowd. I would check forums every once in a awhile during this time. I will definitely apply this to your server.

    10) SCENARIO: "You come home from school/work and have a ton of homework/work to do, you think to yourself I'll just take a 5-minute break before I start and get on DerpCraft. The next thing you know 2 hours have passed and you've been on the server all that time." Does this scenario sound familiar to you?

    I personally get everything that has to be done first done. I do this so I can spend my time without the thought about it in the back of my head. I am extremely responsible with this because I know what happens when your not responsible. (Punishments)

    11) SCENARIO: You're in a busy server as a helper, questions are flying at you rapidly, you can just about keep up. You're getting messaged by 2 different players both asking you to get them a moderator for a hacker, someone then pokes you on Discord telling you that there is someone blasting music in their channel. What do you do?

    First I would ask for assistance from other staff members. If the staff members aren't available then I would say to the players that I will dm a moderator right now so please have patience. Then after dming the moderator I would open discord and mute the person streaming music and dm them saying you can appeal on the forums.

    12) Have you made any previous applications, if so how many and what is the date of your last one?

    First one here on this forum.

    13) Anything else we should know?

    I enjoy collaborating with others and learning from others. It warms me to do a service that I can enjoy doing. I also enjoy having authority and showing people how you should properly use it.
