    Introduction: Hi, you know me as cdhoff, but you can call me Chris. I am 15 years old, and I have been playing on the server on and off since November 7th 2017. There are those who like me, and those who don't (mostly as a joke, though). I recently haven't been playing a lot, but hope to get back into it, which I am trying to do. I am not really good at answering essay questions and tend to ramble a lot. My father has been a developer since before I was born and has been part of multiple companies where he has been above them all in experience and knowledge, even most of his bosses. We both have the same personality type - sarcastic. While he has been able to learn to hold back a little bit, I still struggle with that lightly (see previous demotion). I don't know if I should have made this yet, according to Lord's words, but I feel like the sooner, the better. I also told people I would be applying again around now.


    I don't talk a lot on the server, because it always seems in my head people don't want to hear what I have to say. When I was dev, I felt like people wanted to talk to me more, and I liked that feeling. If you ask some people that were active when I was on every day as tech, they (at least told me) I was fun to talk with and comedic. This could have changed, and me saying this makes me possibly seem full of myself, but I am just saying what I heard.


    Now, to talk about why I was demoted in the first place. I made some terrible comments at Achrow after a play rivalry we had over a 100k bet, and didn't have my head on straight. I let the "power" I had get the best of me, and I am sorry. Achrow and I have made up not too long after the incident.


    Please describe your experience as a developer. I have technically been developing since the 1.5 days - 2013, but I have actually been trying to improve my skills and make something useful since 2015. I have been using computers all of my life, and I know most of the ins-and-outs of most operating system and I can adapt to whatever you throw at me.

    What programming languages are you familiar with? I am familiar with Java, CSS, HTML, JSON (A little bit), and XAML/YAML (A little bit), and have some, but not much, experience with MySQL. I've also started to delve a little bit in bash.

    What are you most proud of as your work as a developer? Well... I can't really share it with anyone, but the higher ups have the supplydrop plugin, and if not, I can send it to them.

    For everyone else, here is my previous project before I became a Developer at first.

    juniortivotyro/MineBullet


    How do you plan to enrich the experience of MeepCraft with your development contributions? Because I am 15, I don't have a job. I am also home-schooled and don't have friends, so my schedule is pretty much open all day most of the time. I have always picked up concepts quickly. I also am great at multitasking, and most of the time, when I was developing for Meep, I also would talk on the server.

    Do you have a GitHub account or personal website? If so, please provide the link(s) here. juniortivotyro

    I don't know a lot about coding but you seem pretty talented and interested in it.
    I would like to see you online more, but in-game you're mature and personable.

    Good luck!

    Yes. I was experimenting with casino exploitation and was renaming items and selling them, and I’m sorry. Definitely not doing that again.

    If you get the chance this time, just make sure you think before doing something stupid.

    So you tried to hack the lottery casino machines? Was it because you were curious about the security?

    (I'm not trying to say anything against your character, just curious)

    Uhh... suuuure.

    (Hope they believe that)

    In reality, the casino could be improved greatly by incorporating metadata into casino items using some kind of command that generates a hash and injects it into metadata of the item using a keyword given at the end of a command. Totally didn’t just think of this. TOTALLY

    Something like “/casino [keyword]” to convert the item in your hand to a casino item.

    HEY I DID MY TIME :p

    EDIT: Sorry if I joke around a lot, just who I am.

    It's actually secure if someone just uses signed written books as lottery tickets since they come with the inbuilt data of the copy status and renaming a book adds on italicized lettering.

    True, but most people just use pumpkin seeds or red stone dust with Unicode characters on them.

    Does this mean making unique items so people can't rename?

    I’m a little shaky on metadata and nbt stuff, so anyone correct me if I’m wrong, but either having nbt means you can’t rename it, or you can rename it, but it would still have the nbt. Either way, it’s more secure than just naming a red stone dust “You Win!” With a Unicode arrow at the end. With how casinos work, it would have to be an exact match for an item, so it could stack in a dropper. Anything with a wrong name or metadata would be kept in the hopper.

    I like how this has turned from a tech application to a suggestion board of sorts and discussing the logistics of metadata and nbt when it has to do with casinos. BTW Lord knows more about that stuff than me, so if he wants to weigh in, he gladly can.
