Casual's Second Deathrun Application
« on: 25.10.2014 12:20:43 »
Last time I applied I didn't have enough playtime. Now then that hgas been sorted, it's time to reapply! :)

IGN: Casual ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

Intro: http://catgc.com/index.php?topic=751.0

Garry's Mod is a game. That is what it's always been, that is how it will always be. But to some of us, it has reached deeper into us. CaTGC has united people from around the world into this community. Some groups hate others, some groups band together. Letting these groups scrape and spark with each other is destructive for them and the community as a whole.

Being a moderator isn't just telling people "You do this. You did that, now you do this.". Being a moderator isn't just "oh ha ha I have a crown so go kill yourself.". Being a moderator isn't even "Lawl, xteleto. Fun fun fun."

The job of a moderator isn't just to discipline. The job of a moderator is to push the community to it's limits. Not to push it backwards, but to pull it forwards. Disciplining those that damage the game is important, but that's not the role of a moderator. It's to help in the community, in every way.

That being said, there are a few characteristics that should help me, as a person fulfill the job as a moderator. First of all, I'm a community person. I enjoy working with people and giving back to the community. In the past year, I had undertaken several large projects for both entertainment and to return to this community. Many guides were released, countless bugs were found, the helping hand was extended to those that needed it. This quality is especially useful when dealing with those that require assistance, such as the new people that we are forever attempting to lure into this. When I throw my energy into a project, I push until it is at it's maximum potential.

Another advantage that I have over other applicants is my previous experience with managing people. In the past year, I founded alot of clans, groups and community's along my journey, organization, discipline, and helping others have fun were all parts of it's success. I feel that it has given me a hint of an experience of a moderator, which helps me ease into the role. Many of the roles that a moderator has - helper, enforcer, and event-holder were introduced to me through managing these groups.

I am by no means a perfect person. I have responded to criticism with demeaning and sarcastic comments. I understand that being a moderator means dealing with a lot of hate and backlash. In general though, I have the excellent ability to remain cordial when confronted with emotion. When dealing with conflict the best solution is simple: defuse the tension and let the two parties communicate in an open, inviting way. Following the rules and making sure others follow them is important, but there is a difference between simply enforcing them and trying to leave everybody happy while keeping the law.

I understand that the application is same as my previous one, but I do not feel any need for modifying my application. Thanks for your time!

Casual ~

Love love.

Let this be an example for everyone, because this is one of the very little apps that can actually be called one. Instead of writing 6 sleazy sentences ;)

There is really not much to talk about.
Casual is a good person. Casual can handle situation quite well. Casual is polite. Casual always says hi when I join (worth mentioning!). I like Casual. Make him a t-mod!

Since your application is so well-written, you now have the required playtime, and so many people decided to give you +1 and a reason why, I've decided to give you an interview.
