    So, Frank

    I've talked and a few others, I've thought about it overnight, but I don't think you are ready for the position right now. Yes, I do see you as potential staff and I know that you have been putting efforts to improve, but you still have much room to improve.

    I agree that:
    • You have made changes from the last application.
    • You are chill and you would be a potential staff member.
    • Your bans shouldn't be the reason to inhibit you from getting this position.
    Here are my concerns that led me to think that you are not quite yet ready for this position:
    • Interactions with all of the community: You said, "he doesn't like me so i dont like him", but that is not the way a staff member should handle a relationship in a community that is very close as this. People are going to dislike you as staff no matter what. They'll say that Courtneyyy is protecting you and all of those nasty things. It's just part of life and you need to stop being hostile to people, especially in global chat. You need to respect the fact that not everyone playing here is 18 years old. You have to approach each person differently and know that some people are not comfortable with your joking around and you have to accept that.
    • Your favorite picking: I'm not saying that you will be a bad staff member, but I would absolutely hate to see someone in their staff position to be biased and unfair in cases. As staff of meepcraft, I would expect you to be fair in all cases. I don't know if you can do that, because you repetitively keep harassing those that don't like you and when you think something is funny when it's really not.
    • Your application: To be fair, it was just too weak. And I know that it is not your greatest skill to write up formal job applications, but I know that you could've put more details. As you know, meepcraft currently has a large staff team and I don't think that they need more people to just do modreqs. Personally, I am looking for people that can change the environment of the server. I am looking for people that can move projects forward and bring the community together. And I know that you can do that, or at least attempt to, but it is not shown on your application.
    • Your attitude that, you will have a drastic change when you get staff to prove yourself: That's not how it should work. A title shouldn't change anything. You just get green chat. I know that you have been trying to change yourself in a positive way from the last application, and you have shown some changes, but not drastic enough that you started fighting with people again for no reason but because "he hates me". I would like to hear that Frank is now respecting people all around, and not Frank was banned the seventy-first time because he blew up a town and then unbanned three days later. As I said last night, if your application gets denied, I wouldn't act up and actually work to change how you look on the server.
    • Your maturity and your temper: I see that you have been working to improve this, and that is great, but I am not sure if it's at the level of a staff worthy person.
    Always remember that you don't have to be a staff member to prove a change. Remember that you don't have to be a staff member to help others, and to make the server a better place. Don't be discouraged! I know you can do it. And I'm really glad to see the changes you've made and I'm looking forward to more!

    I just don't think that you are ready right now and you could use some more improvement :)

    Sorry for the late reply, but let me just use up this last comment. You're online currently and you have a positive attitude. I can see how hard you're trying to get this accepted. I do understand, You do have the potential for staff. I can see it. you definitely have changed since your past, and I can see that. I just do not think you've got to the top yet, I just don't think you're there Just yet, but as I said. I wish you the best of luck on this application. unfortunately my vote is still a -1 for the meantime :)

    Alright...

    This is the third time I've had to post this, it's been deleted twice before.

    +1

    I encourage the next staff member going to delete this to peruse through the archives and see the litany of -1/+1 I've posted on applications. I mean what I post and I post what I mean.

    Stop deleting my comments

    Ok lets start here, the application was below what I'd be expecting coming from any (Maybe) to be staff member, the ban history was long but its nothing too hard to get over, maturity and temper could be a problem, but I'm not too familiar with you so I can't know for sure. You seem to be very rude and also don't think before you act. Now since I am not very familiar with you I'd like to see you justify why you posted this in local chat: Vkl
    It was also off-setting that you just started helping a day before you posted this application. So I'm at a solid -1 unless you can find some miracle to explain this photo, fix your attitude and have some proof of you helping before you posted this. Thanks.

    I said that because I was with my friends? Having a normal conversation in local chat, while the other people there also mentioned it. & sorry but I never see you in game.

    lol what did you write?


    For the actual application, I just want to say that Vkl, in his long history in meep, has abused every opportunity given to him by staff. It was probably one of the few consistent things to be counted on in this server. A lot of people have stuck their neck out for him and got burned when he got banned in like a month of being unbanned. Every time he said he changed and was unbanned, he got permed fairly quickly. I think that is important to consider if staff want to accept or deny this application.

    I have no doubt Frank could be a good staff member if he applied himself, but what is important is not if, but how likely the if is. How likely is it that he has changed, how likely is it that he will be productive to , and what is his chances for abusing his position and powers.

    Yeah but like you can't say that because other people were saying so its ok that I said it. Saying High as sht where shorting words for curses is not staff behavior. I was one of the more lenient with my language, but I did it in local with friends and close staff friends around, never in global. Not good homie.

    Also why would u resort to questioning kirby's online status? They are staff. You are applying for it. How do you go from I've changed to instantly being combative? You don't seem to understand the line between defending yourself and being combative, which is a worrying trend frank.

    That mustache is disgusting, -1.

    Unimportant opinions aside, I'm not sure how anyone can trust you. You are unpredictable and more of a smart-ass than anyone your age should be. I'll be honest and say: you are creepy. Anyone who is +1ing you is doing so because you have improved. I'm not going to hold to your past, and I will definitely not compare you to it. However, as of now, you are still a horrifying individual. Yeah, even if you are improving, it's not enough.

    I'm not being optimistic here either. I don't think you are the kind of person who will ever be fit for staff. I sincerely hope you do find it in yourself to improve. Huge -1.

    Hey VKL,
    The application was a tad disappointing, as I would be wanting a more detailed application from someone like you who's been trying for staff for a while at this point. It didn't give me much more than the basics, and of course, I'd love to know more. I would suggest going more into detail on the why chunk of the application especially. Anyways, as I don't play in game much anymore, I can't judge you on that much. Also, I've seen the picture that @kirby99 has posted, and although I'm not concerned too much about you having a good ol' time with some friends, I am concerned about the way you responded to his comment along with your sarcasm on the other comments. I understand that you might want to resolve some of people's concerns, which is perfectly fine. However, it's a little too far when you begin getting defensive and rude to others as I'm seeing above. I surely don't want to see that from a staff member, as it looks much better when you keep your cool and take them graciously. I suggest keeping that in mind. In conclusion, I can see that you're trying, but I want to see a bit more than you've given. Work a little longer and harder for this and you've got a reconsideration from me. -1 for now.

    Honestly, I'd avoid posting a reply to every post here. From past experience, it makes you look a bit desperate.

    I understand you've had a long banhistory, but you've made apparent progress since then.

    I'm on mobile, so I'll save the long speech and post for another time.

    I'm gonna stay neutral for now because I've been fairly inactive, but I think that he deserves a chance.

    I didn't get to post on the last application and that was so upsetting, glad to see you're applying again!

    I don't mean to offend staff or anything, but a few of them aren't doing very much for the team considering what they can do, I'm not just saying that to bash the staff team, I'm saying this to say that VKL deserves a chance to show what he can do.

    VKL can be a **** at times but when he puts his mind to it, I reckon he can get what needs to be done.

    As said before, How much harm could he possibly cause? :)

    And yeah, gotta put a negative in there, VKL would be a horrible staff member as he was toxic 3.5 years ago. (I know, he can still be a monkey at times)

    PS. VKL please stop with the dumb replies and you'll get accepted!!!!!!!

    ?? Not even gunna say anything, will let you think about this one.
    Deinen is a genius, stop deleting what he has to say!

    Great input I'm so happy that you informed us on all the amazing reasons you should give him staff.

    Vkl, I'm sorry man, I know I haven't been around (because like, I'd rather play league and volleyball) but I just cannot bring myself to see this go through, and honestly the only reason you'd get staff is by bias, which is what most of what staff is but whatever I guess that's life. However, no matter how many times you say "I've changed" "I won't do it again" and all that stuff. You've been banned more times then I played games of volleyball this season. I'm happy you have the drive to be staff, just like I did, but your app was again just as disappointing as the rest. You also don't have to respond to everyone's comments, it really irks me when you respond using stuff like "71, kiddo" and "XD" that just isn't mature for a spot on a server that you are still representing even though we have like half the servers active players as staff.

    Even as a staff member, What makes you so different? I still hold to the belief that we don't need anymore people that are going to be average. Just because people like you, that doesn't mean you should get staff. (<----- please take that advise @@@staff).

    I know this will be frowned on, probably deleted. but its the gosh flippity dang truth. Take it or leave it, I haven't been around but all the experiences I have had with you are nothing but full of bad, bad experiences.

    +1 you liked something I said in the debate section and that doesn't happen often.

    1.) You are always nice and active in global chat
    2.) I think its funny when people say to "be more mature" I get there is a fine line when being staff but this is a minecraft server.
    3.) tell me how pseudo got accepted (in like January).... and y'all say maturity is a thing....and bans.... and toxicity.
    4.) @Vexmae always defending magnoot. ;/
    5.)Your name is Frank?
    6.)Who cares how long his app is, it was too the point! this is not a "let me expose myself" (even tho I did that when I was desperate for helper) - thats been thrown out the window soooo umm yeah

    everyone who -1 VKL has offended me and is fake news.

    All I need to see is at least a +1/-1 to know if people would like to see the candidate to become a staff member. All the writing is beliefs & opinions for the community/staff to see for them to take into consideration about an applicant.

    If I gave you you my complete reasoning it may collide with what I hope to happen. But for one he has not broken my trust and as you know I think highly of that also he certainly knows what not to discuss so I don't think leaking will be an issue.

    Remember to comment only about the applicant on their staff application. Unfortunately I've had to delete one, just a warning so a flame war does not kick off.

    If you are scared that your reasoning for wanting someone on staff being public might inhibt the applicant from being staff, should you really be +1ing him in the first place? Food for thought.

    It will not affect his chances on being a staff member I can assure you better yet I believe it increases reasoning to, guess I should have not commented and left my opinion for the staff meeting as some of us do.
