    When did you join Meepcraft? 8th July 2014

    Introduction: Yello Meep!
    I am a 16-year-old, tea drinking girl called Megan, I’m currently in my first year of college studying Beauty Therapy (all the waxing, massages, makeup, nails and all that jazz). My original plan for college was to study media makeup, which includes makeup, on-stage makeup, and SFX (the gory/fake stuff thingamabob). Unfortunately, the course was very new to the college, and they needed people with high expectations to pass to carry on the course. At the time I was rather shy, and after finding out I would have to work with people I don’t know, I didn’t like that. I had moved to beauty Therapy and therefore found a load of new friends! Which is the one reason I am nowhere near as shy, a good thing about beauty therapy is you get to practice on each other (so we get the freebies to waxing and makeup!) but I think it increased my confidence a lot considering we were jumping right in and getting rid of the awkward stage.
    As a little bit about my likes/dislikes I like Metal bands, and music from the early 2000s, I very recently went seeing Scouting for Girls on the 6th of December with my Mother, and seeing Alien Ant farm with her sometime this month! My favourite console would have to either be the Nintendo Wii or the 3ds, but my all time favourite game and will always be is the Mario Galaxy franchise, loved it the day I bought it and I still do. Nothing much else to say about myself really considering a lot of you know a lot about me anyway.
    During my time on Meep I had just recently left my old town Lost_paradise to make my own town called Athens (to which I am very grateful I had received so much positive feedback for the town), when I’m online I’m usually making prebuilts for my town, or I am just standing still and participating in chat as I still struggle with the issue of starting to lag at 6 pm


    Why should you be Helper? I personally feel that I should be a helper because I feel I have a good understanding of how to communicate with players, how things work in the “staff life” and have the experience in keeping a good modreq count, aside from that I feel that I have good relationships with various different personalities and tastes, so I think I’d work well with almost anyone
    In my previous run as staff, I didn’t do any projects, so I’m hoping to get accepted so I can actually be recognised for something and make some changes, such as for example, I have been suggesting a little more than I usually do, and I think I have some useful ideas that could help Meep (obviously modreqs will still be more important to me because I like doing them).
    In all of my past applications, I stated I had social Anxiety, I would say that doesn’t affect me as much anymore to mention it in weaknesses, obviously if I get an interview I will still be a little nervous as it’s an interview, but I don’t really mind talking to people nowhere near as much as I used to.
    I joined back in my first town Legend a little while ago, and I’ve been doing projects through there, and getting a little more used to Trello with it, and now know how everything works (I never touched Trello, probably one of the main reasons I didn’t cooperate in projects.
    I have been bonding with many staff, including some speedrunning of Mario Galaxy with Oknem (Much fun) and I’d say that I’ve regained a lot of lost trust with a few staff, so I’m hoping being accepted will prove myself to everyone, not just staff, that I have changed and I hope my past demotion won’t affect the way staff and other people look at me, and hoping my personality will regain the trust I lost.
    I would say I am one of the most active Meepers there is, I am on at every moment I can get in, I am very welcoming and I wouldn’t call myself very intimidating, so people won’t be as scared of me if I happen to talk to them, I would consider myself Open-hearted and not at all quick to judge, so I would say I am very easy to start a conversation with.

    Now, regarding my demotion, I am very aware of the actions I did and I own up to them completely, my first demotion was a misunderstanding and I would like to point out that fact. But I’m going to keep it anonymous to prevent any drama being spread, I failed to see that my first demotion was a let off, but it was also a pre-warning to what will happen if I do that again, and so I blocked out the signals and did what I did to be demoted again, but this time for good. I’d say I’ve gained enough trust with others and staff members to be trusted just that little bit more not to leak, but let me prove myself by being accepted, as I cannot find any other way to prove it to everyone


    What are your weaknesses? -Shyness-
    Luckily, not as bad as before, I still get moments of shyness, but not to the point where it’d be considered as social anxiety, this won’t affect my gameplay, it’s more with voice chats, but recently voice chatting hasn’t been so awkward, but I still have flashes so I thought it’d be beneficial to mention this just in case

    -Immaturity-
    There have been a few times when these have spiked up, I have the immature side of myself showing a little, I just hope it isn’t that distracting and will result on getting negative votes, but I don't think this will affect my gameplay as staff and I think it should sort itself out


    Please give any other information you might think is useful for us to know: With being at college, the only times I won’t be on as much would be Thursdays, as I’m in from really really to really late, but every other day I think I’m okay, unless if an exam pops up

    I am also having the issue with starting to lag at 6 pm GMT, but I can stay online to moderate chat, but I won’t be able to warp anywhere

    Despite your demotions, I think you’re ready to join the staff team again. Over the past few months, you’ve been extremely helpful to players, kind, and friendly. I’d really enjoy if you could make it.

    One last thing: As long as you’re careful and use your best judgement, you deserve another shot.

    As a helper, you’ll essentially, 99%, be working in game, not projects. I just had this talk.
    Now other than that, what’s something useful you will actually bring to the team?
    Many people can interact with players and have good bonding skills, but what sets you apart?

    +1, you are easily one of the most helpful and kind people on the server (and I don’t say that about many people). Good luck!

    As far as the app goes, what can you contribute that nobody else can? You're kind and friendly in-game, but as of now you sound exactly as qualified or less qualified than *deep breath* bloodyghost, riri30, lollisweet101, smkorpi, cuddlykittens, beaufx, or even aedan. You are on discord some, more than the other staff for sure, but with your current app, we don't know what's different about you than the others. If just being friendly and kind was enough, lolli, korpi, and riri probably would've all got helper. If you can show a way which benefits the server that nobody else does, I'm a +1, but for now, the only thing making you "stand out" is your demotions, sorry.

    I'm aware that I'll be mostly in-game as helper. but I was just mentioning the fact that I was aware I didn't participate towards any projects, I believe that with my past experience as staff it will allow me to get back on my feet, I also believe that I have some ideas server wide that I think might make the server more enjoyable. my availability would be most beneficial (as apart from Thursdays) I am currently getting my 6pm lag fixed soon, and so I'll be able to get on when there are no staff online, unless if I am at college at the time, but I can also hop on minechat just to keep chat in order

    Unlike some other of the applicants beforehand, I have had to previous experience of being staff, therefore I (don't think) it would take long to regain the knowledge of being staff, I would also say I'm am fairly active compared to current staff/applicants. I know pretty much all commands that people usually forget about, and I wouldn't mind stopping any current projects of my own to assist any players with troubles, as I said in the reply above, I can be available ranging from a lot of times (within reason) and I also mentioned that I think I can suggest a few ideas to help the Meep. I am very much aware a welcoming face can't get you helper, but it certainly doesn't hurt to put it in

    I think it was a great application and very well written but I will not sugar coat my reply and will get straight to the point.

    Every person that has ever been a staff member of the Meepcraft server that I have had the opportunity to work with know my biggest pet peeves are 1. Using staff perms for personal gain 2. Leaking staff chat. I consider leaking any form of staff communication a violation of the trust a staff team needs to work together effectively and to always be honest with each other which in the case of leaking causes some to not fully speak their minds in fear of it getting out.

    Now in the case of your demotions I have been enlightened as to the circumstances and though not the worst case of leaking we have had it is still leaking.

    So I have a couple of questions that I will ask to help put myself and hopefully others at ease.

    First, do you understand why any type of leaks is an issue within the staff team and what have you learned based on your actions that will prevent this from happening again?

    Secondly, it is well known in the Minecraft community that you have a personal relationship with a non-staff member. Now I know in relationships that honesty is something that is important. Do you see this being an issue with not leaking staff information if it involved people you know on a personal level.

    I appreciate your honest answers and any other information you would like to provide.

    You have potential but you need confidence and don’t let anybody run over you. Be yourself, have a voice and a backbone, keep your mouth shut, and have fun! Try not to let a game control your emotions even though I understand it’s hard to do. Good luck Vex if you ever need anything don’t hesitate to ask. :)

    Maybe you should vote based on your opinion of the person not other people who've been accepted, seeing as you don't think cuddly's doing a good job, maybe you shouldn't go along with the system you were recently complaining about? Basically what I'm saying is stop whining about it unless you actually are going to do something about it. Lord's said his least favorite thing is when people complain but don't give an example of how to fix the issue, maybe make a thread about applications, as I'm sure the community and staff could benefit from an expert like you enlightening us on how applications should be carried out.
    I forgot about this, do you think you could bring yourself to deal with said player fairly as if you didn't know him?

    This is a good thing about Vex. Whether or not she has leaked staff information, I trust her not to abuse, and I assume she'd be especially careful after her previous demotions, however, it doesn't really reflect well on the server or other staff that you've been demoted and re-gained a position above other players. I'm a -1 for you as moderation staff, as to put it bluntly there's better applications currently up. Good luck with your app, and I hope we stay friends in-game after this! :) -ZAmos

    Despite your previous demotions, I think you still have the qualities to be a good staff member, I don't people should solely make their decisions on someones previous actions and should consider therir improvments. But for some people I would make an exception.
    Over all Vex I'll give you +1.

    This was a one off time. I’m currently redecorating my room and so my pc is currently down and I have no means of getting online soon. So I temporarily changed my password so he could have access to get the nutcracker. To which I have just set it back now. Regarding all other responses. I shall respond to them as soon as my pc is back up and running
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 4, 2018, Original Post Date: Jan 4, 2018 ---
    I have understood that leaking is something that is looked down upon, and that anything that is said in the staff chat should stay in it's rightful place, I understand how "surprise breaking" it can be to be told about something before it's officially announced. I have learned over the past few months since my demotion how to keep my mouth shut and that anything said to anyone outside of staff chat will soon come around and bite me back

    if anything was needed to be said to him it would either be professionally by me, or by a higher staff member, if something comes up that he should not know about I shan't tell him as he doesn't need to know the information and what is being said throughout the staff team. I have seen in myself that it has been an issue, but as I said I have recently been keeping my mouth shut and some things are meant to be kept away from certain people.
