What is your in-game name? - blockchong Have you changed your name in the past? If you have, please list them all. - No I have never changed my Minecraft username in the past. I don’t have any immediate plans to change it either. Does anyone else have access to your Minecraft account? - No as far as I'm aware I am the only person with access not only to my Minecraft and Discord accounts but to my entire profile on the computer. What is your real name? - Elise Carr How old are you? - 15 What country are you currently living in? - USA What is your time zone? - Mountain What language(s) can you speak? - English Are you able to join our Discord server with a working microphone? – Yes Have you been on our Discord? - I quite enjoy Discord conversations and am pretty sure if my parents knew half the conversations I had they would actually condemn me to Hell then walk me to the front doors themselves. I’ve made some really good friends over Discord to boot. Are you willing to check the forums on a regular basis? - Already do. I check daily and since the school’s firewall is a bit iffy I usually check them about every hour or so if I can get through. How long has it been since you joined New Heaven? - I want to say a bit less than a year. How active do you consider yourself on New Heaven? - Discord very. Minecraft last couple weeks haven’t been on much because about every six months I go through a phase of losing interest in my favorite activities but these normally don’t last too long. And I’m pretty certain that I’m through this latest one. How many hours would you say you spend on New Heaven each day? - Per Day, probably on discord or available through discord 4-7 on weekdays and on weekends I have no life or plans usually so pretty much anywhere from 8-16 hours. When summer comes round I’ll turn almost completely nocturnal but keep the same 8-16 hours per day. If you were staff, how active would you be on New Heaven? - To be honest I don’t think I could possibly manage to be on New Heaven much more than I am now. Unless I manage to get a phone somehow and have discord and the ability to text. Right now New Heaven is already my main concern. Have you been punished on New Heaven in the past? If yes, what for? - Yes I’ve been punished before. First was for having an AFK machine. Which I was swiftly kicked by Dwayne for having and felt horrible about, so that hasn’t happened again. And the other for pushing Rene into the PvP arena while he was AFK, and Frost caught that one and warned me. Do you have any issues (such as health) that could affect your performance as staff? - Well as I mentioned before I have Autism (high functioning) so occasionally I’ll say things that may seem mean but in reality I would never want to be mean. For example whenever I type in all caps doesn’t mean I’m mad It’s mainly to make a point or to get people to stop arguing. I also have Manic Depression and severe anxiety stuff. What are some of your greatest strengths? Please list them - I don’t care what most people think of me. On New Heaven I can count the people whose opinions really matter to me on one hand and I know that they would never do anything to purposefully hurt me. I don’t feel emotions like most people. I don’t anger as often and I don’t get nervous very easily (anxiety is different). So I’m able to be very cool headed most if not all of the time, and if it ever got to the point where it became too much to me I wouldn’t shutdown immediately, I would finish the job the way I am supposed to and then either leave for a bit or go take a little nap as that usually helps. I’m relatively creative when I’m in the right mood. If I’m depressed or emotional in real life my main way of coping is coming to New Heaven and helping people, breaking up fights, etc. If I’m emotional about something I don’t let it interfere with my other tasks. If anything the most it will affect me is I’ll get a bit quiet with a bit less compassion than usual. I’m extremely loyal I’d die for the people I care about in a heartbeat without a second thought. I have a strong sense of right and wrong. I do what needs to be done. What are some of your greatest weaknesses? Please list them - I can be very stubborn. I tend to be clumsy to the point I think I might be able to break a brick. I overthink things often, and that gets in the way of my relationships and tasks. I’ll get really enthusiastic about something and obsess over it but then I’ll lose interest after a period of time. I have a thing about letting my role models down and disappointing them. Very self conscious sometimes sometimes bad at explaining stuff (which may be apparent in this application) I can get distracted rather easily but always return to what I was doing before In what ways could you positively contribute to the community? - To be honest there’s not much I can put that isn’t already on the staff team. I’m loyal, I already do what I can for the community, best thing I can offer is the insight of a new person and to try to come up with new ideas and to do my duty as helper. What experiences do you have with moderating a community or game? - I’ve been Admin on two servers before this both were sort of “sister” servers. And if having two pastors for parents can count as an example I might as well list it. (pastors, ministers, priests, whatever takes your fancy) Rule Breaking Scenarios: How would you handle each of the following scenarios in-game? Identify each rule being broken in each situation. A user is flooding the chat with messages. - I would give them a warning, and if they continue I would probably mute them for 2 hours or so because time flies. If they continue I’d ask them to stop and if they don’t I’d mute them for another 2. Then Temp-Ban. Multiple users are role playing in global chat. -I would politely ask them to move it to local chat. If they don’t respond I would give them each a warning. If they continue I would mute them for an hour. If they continue to use global chat I will ask them to move it to local and if they don’t comply I would mute them for another 2 hours. If they continue I would temp-ban them. A user is clearly flying around in Survival / KitPVP. - I would double and triple check get a screenshot just in case and then I would temp-ban them and report to a higher staff member. A couple users are arguing in the global chat and causing drama. - I would ask them to move it to private messages and if they refuse to I would mute them both for 3 hours as if a person is a bit ticked it can take awhile to cool down. If they both come back and continue to argue I will mute them again for another three hours A user is getting involved in an issue they aren't part of, while you are dealing with the issue. -I will ask them to keep it to themselves and if they don’t i will mute them for an hour, hopefully that will give me time to handle the situation and if it doesn’t and the player insists on butting in, I will mute them for another 2 hours. A user keeps hackusating. -Ask them to refrain and to submit a report onto the forums. If they continue I will mute them for an hour which should hopefully give them enough time to rage quit or to submit a report. If It isn’t I will mute them for another 2 hours. How would you handle each of the following scenarios on the forums? A user is repeatedly posting the same thread in a section on the forums. - I would remove all of the copies except for one, and notify a higher staff member. A user has posted a thread in the wrong section. - I would remove the post, message the player that posted it, the correct location for said post. A user is posting inappropriate content in a forum post. - I would remove said post warn the player. If they continue I would remove all of the posts and report to a higher staff member. How would you handle each of the following scenarios on our Discord server? Identify each rule being broken in each situation. A couple users are arguing in the #general chat. - rule #5 states “Do not argue with one another, stay civil.” So according to this I would private message each to stop arguing and remind them that if they continue they will get muted for 2 hours. If they continue after 2 hours I will mute them for another 3. A user is flooding the chat with messages. - rule #2 states “No spamming in text channels or private message.” in accordance to this I would warn the player and remove all of the excessive messages. If the player continues I will mute them for an hour and request them to private message me if they need anything. If after the hour they return and continue spamming I will mute them for another 3. A user has posted a pornographic image in the chat. - rule #3 states “Keep content/topic in the right text or voice channel.” I will remove the image and notify the player that there is a nsfw text channel where they can post all the porn they want. If they continue I will mute them for 3 hours (as this is a christian server), and if they continue I will mute them for another 4. Is there anything else which you would like to add? - I’ve said before and I’ll say it again most of the people on New Heaven I consider family. I really don’t want this position if I haven’t earned it. So please when you give me feedback or vote please be dead honest.
