February 24th, 2014 Introduction: Note: Even though I have only been fully active on the server again for a few weeks, please take into account that I would not apply if I did not intend to stick around. I would enjoy an active role within the community, which is why I am now giving it another shot. Thank you! Hello, Reader! My name is Sean otherwise known as Sqreix in-game. I am a sixteen years old teenager, turning seventeen this upcoming September, and I am about to start my Senior High School this June with a track related to Computer Technology. My hobbies include playing video games, watching movies or series, reading fictional e-books, and anime, though what I enjoy most of all is helping other people. And for that reason, I was chosen and elected Vice President of our Student Council and President of our Multimedia Society Club, which has been awarded for being the most active club in the school this school year (2017-2018). My entire family also involves itself in our community events, too! For example, in the Christmas season, we hand out food to the children and do a raffle to entertain the parents, where we also serve food to eat during Christmas Day, such as spaghetti, loaf breads, and much more. Although I have many, one of my favorite hobbies is gaming. I first began playing video games at the young age of just four years old, when my friends introduced me to the video game “WarCraft III: Frozen Throne”. A fun fact about me is that, with a lot of practise, I reached an average typing speed on a keyboard of 130 words per minute, sometimes reaching 160! My journey on Meepcraft began some four years ago, in February of 2014. All that time has allowed me to acquire server experience, which I deem will be useful during my time as a staff member, should I be accepted. Although there have been a few major changes and revisions over the years I’ve played here, Towny is still my favourite server on Meepcraft! Why should you be Helper? I always liked helping others, and make them feel like they were a part of my own family. Being the leader of a large Grand Theft Auto Faction, I always help my members to get along. I did this by creating an event where I gathered the players together, in order to create a bonding and camaraderie within our Faction. I also organized plans to create promotional trailers so our Faction could gain fame and get the attention of other players wanting a more thrilling experience. I have been a member of this community for more than four years now. Despite all these years, I always try to better myself and help other members of the community. To my appreciation, I became a dedicated member of Meep’s community. I was twelve when I first filed an application, though despite my best efforts, I was denied. I had poor skills in speaking English, as well as typing correctly . Because of this, I was criticized and bullied for my lack of vocabulary. Some called me names, and it affected me, which is why I decided that I would better my English grammar, and here I am today. This decision just proves to myself that I am capable of doing whatever I set my mind to, no matter what the situation is. I have learned countless things related to moderation from many different video game servers. Over my previous experiences, I have learnt many things, such as dedication, perseverance, and patience. I deem that communication is the key to the success of a great community. Taking polls, answering questions and assisting players are all really important, too, and I do believe that when it comes to problem solvings or explanations, I have some experience that could better the team. As I previously mentioned, every time I help someone, I feel satisfied knowing I have helped improve their player experience. Indeed, they could be somehow confused and angry if they are encountering a big issue, though I always try my best to calmly assist every player seeking help. I know that every time I help someone, it benefits the both of us as it brings joy to each other. As we all know that being a staff member is not all about having fun, gaining fame, and perhaps even power. For me, it is something honorable, as you give up your free time to assist the players and give someone a good server experience. It is the best opportunity to be a role model and a good example to the community and to the players of the server. Most of the players of this community have never let me down throughout the long time I have been on this server. I have met so many different people with diverse personalities and cultures. I am certain that I would be dedicated and willing to spare most of my time to help out the community. I am a very patient young man. My father works as a businessman in our city, and I have had the opportunity to be a part of his business for a while, now. I was trained to deal with people who were older than I was and do conduct business transactions with people. I have certainly pulled out some experience from that, too! I have learnt that one must have good communication skills in order to grasp the attention of another. I can positively say that I will always try my best and calmly assist players when it comes to moderating and would do everything I could to help everyone, should I be accepted. While I do know quite a few commands and plugins, I am always eager to learn more, especially when it comes to these things. I will do my best and use all of the learnings I could gather to its fullest extent for the good of the people, and the community itself. While dealing with angry players like I have dealt with in the past - and I am sure I will see again, I deem the most important key components to be in a calm demeanor, as well as treating others with equality in all aspects. First and foremost, what I tend to do in these kind of situations, is gain control by calming players down, in order to keep things proficient, and to talk about the necessary terms that have to be discussed. While I am aware that Administration have other things to handle than small in-game issues, I always consider myself a team player. In the event that I do not know something, I am more than happy to ask someone more experienced than I am for help. Ultimately, here is a list of the different aspects of my personality that I think make me qualified to be a member of MeepCraft’s Staff team. Dedication – I’ve enjoyed most of my time on this server, and from the start to the present day, I have dedicated a lot of my spare time to this server, which I love. I believe that being a dedicated member of the community would enable me to excel in the Staff team. Work Ethic – As stated above, assisting people is what satisfies and drives me. If I assisted someone, I am satisfied and I feel proud of myself. Being a helper on this server is to have a strong work ethic, and I do believe I possess this quality. While tackling modreqs, I think I would not focus on the quantity too much, but rather the quality. I try my best to help them and also satisfy them, and even to the most complicated question or issue, I try my best to finish and solve it. Activity – I always have spare time for the server. I am active in all aspects of the server, including the forums and the Discord server. I also have Skype installed on my computer. Like a lot of us, I have my very own laptop and personal computer which means I can be online anytime as long as my schedule is open. I believe that my activity will play a big role in my success as a staff member. Involvement – I always do my best to get involved on Meep. One way I do it is Discord and Forums. I am on forums and Discord on a regular basis as this is the place where I could interact with the community. In game, I try my best to interact and be involved in the community too. Therefore, I believe I am greatly involved within the community. Determination – I am determined person. I had my rough spots on Meep when I first joined, but I decided to stay and better myself. Something that shows determination, and shouldn’t be mistook for desperation. This is not the first time that I am applying for this position, it is my nineteenth time. However, I am pretty determined to grasp the opportunity to show my full potential as a Helper this time around. Experience – I was a retired Junior Administrator in OG-RP in a GTA: SA-MP server. I also was a Senior Moderator before being handpicked and promoted to Junior Administrator. Firstly, as a Senior Moderator, I was given a task to control and utilize Junior Moderators and Moderators to keep them in order, and to arrange their activities according to their schedule and plan. Shortly after my promotion, as a Junior Administrator, I was given the opportunity to answer out questions provided, and filing of player reports from players. There were a few serious tasks at hand that were given to me, which I could not talk about. Aside from GTA: SA-MP, I have previously Co-Owned another minecraft server. It had approximately 30 players on average, so it was not very big, but because of this, I had the opportunity to experience first hand what moderation and administration on a Minecraft server was like. What I have learnt from all these different moderation positions is that you must have dedication, patience and leadership. I have also lead several groups/factions in other servers in the past, which required a strong will to become the Leader of a community and unite all players. Though I do not doubt being a Helper on Meepcraft is not an easy task and comes with many responsibilities, I am confident I will be able to have fun, which is the most important aspect of a video game, is it not? What are your weaknesses? At times, I can certainly be immature, depending on the situation. This is a weakness that I could be in denial with, sometimes. This happens when I let myself become too cheerful and just talk a lot especially while interacting with other players. I tend to be hyperactive and talk about nonsense things that would sometimes get to the point where other people would think it’s annoying and a nuisance. This is of course an issue that I am working on, and I think that with the support of other staff members and my own willpower, I could overcome. I am also a brutally honest person. I don’t like to beat around the bush, and I express myself when I disagree with something, and I speak my mind. This is something that is a weakness for me, because it sometimes can get to others. My last, and probably my biggest weakness is my poor grammar. Due to the fact that I am from the Philippines, my mother tongue is our native dialect, Hiligaynon. Then comes English, followed by Tagalog. I tend to construct my sentences in an odd fashion, and commit big grammatical mistakes. However, as time passes by, I get to learn new words that help me improve my communication. Despite this, I generally make a clear point, and am able to share my thoughts.
