Position applied for: Assistant
Which time zone are you in: Mountain daylight time
How long have you played on the server overall: I believe about since late 2013 so approximately 6 years but I have changed my in-game name twice since then so I doubt any veterans would remember me.
How long have you been an active user: I believe that I've been an active user for about 3 years where there have been extended periods of time in which I was either completely inactive or not very active.
State previous staff experience from any server: I've been a moderator on a public server (can't remember the name) which no longer exists as well as an admin on a different private server (The Goldrush) which also no longer exists. I also had a server of my own (GhostPhilosopher's PvE server or GPPvE for short) through the use of a free hosting service (Currently in the process of switching to a different hosting service) and the server had some similarities to the early days of PeacefulCraft as a PvE server.
Which plugins are you familiar with: Plugins that I am familiar with are all ones that I have used successfully on my own server and I believe most are used on PCN. These plugins include Essentials (including EssentialsSpawn and EssentialsChat), WorldEdit, WorldGuard, Core Protect, Vault, LuckPerms, GUIShop, ClearLag (Not sure how it differs from Laggremover if at all), GriefPrevention, BetterRTP, ChopTree (which is like TreeGravity), and HolographicDisplays (I can try to provide evidence of my knowledge and use of these plugins if necessary). I'm also familiar with Towny, TPPets, and LWC from playing on PCN and I am currently in the process of learning the functions and usages of Skript (It would be nice if a server administrator would be willing to help me learn faster) and Multiverse-Core.
How will the server benefit from you being promoted: Over the past couple of months, there has been a myriad of situations in which players have been breaking server rules such as through means of griefing, stealing, cheating in some way, or is just being disrespectful which ruins the fun and enjoyment others have. I believe myself to be a just individual (I have a clean record on the server. No bans, kicks, mutes, or warnings.) that is fully capable of resolving conflicts and I have absolutely no tolerance for any behavior and/or action(s) that is unfair to other players and would not hesitate to put an end to it immediately, enforcing the server rules which I have familiarized myself with. Additionally, I've been playing Minecraft for about 6 years now, and believe that I've had a decent amount of experience as staff on other servers leading me to believe that my knowledge and experiences will be beneficial to the server. Furthermore, I would love to help the server continue growing and expanding and ensure a safe and friendly environment for all players. Finally, I try my best to be as mature, professional, and open-minded as possible, and I believe that I have critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will also be of benefit to the server.
Why have you applied: I have applied because I have felt that I have become rather attached to this server in the way that it has been one of my favorites ever since I first joined and I wish to contribute more to the community it feels like I have gotten close with. Every time I take a break from it, I always find myself coming back. Furthermore, I believe myself to be helpful to others as I enjoy helping new players and any others if they need help, and try my best to help out whenever possible which is often when no staff are online. Because of this, I wish to help others to a greater extent (especially since I'm always seeing or hearing about how areas such as the mall have been griefed or stolen from or that server rules are just being broken in general which is quite upsetting as it is unfair to others and they aren't able to enjoy their time on the server as much as desired.) and I am confident in my ability to do so based on my experiences.
Additional Information: I filled my schedule up quite a bit for my senior year of high school which started recently, so it is very likely that I will be busy quite often and therefore won't always be able to play on the server but I try to be active regularly or whenever possible. When I find myself online as of recent, I also see that there is usually no staff online. I'm also a quick learner and eager to learn more so it would be nice if an administrator would be willing to teach me more.
Note: I'm required to write papers for school quite frequently and I am also applying to colleges and universities as well as to jobs available for high school students (which requires that I write out a lot of detailed and coherent information), so I apologize for how verbose my staff application is and how long it will take to read as it is for those reasons that I have developed a habit of writing out a lot of information for something such as an application and other things in general.
Much obliged for taking the time to read this.
