  1. Hi! First of all, sorry for not sticking with the exact template. I feel like the over-sized font is really distracting. The questions are still exactly the same though. I also want to add I've applied before but withdrew voluntarily on the old forums. I don't really like to go in-detail to much in this application because I think most staff has seen me around on the server itself and have a pretty good idea whether I should be a good addition to the staff or not. In-Game Username: Dab, Iron Dab, Whoop Age: 21 Country & Timezone: The Netherlands, +1 GMT Average Time Played Per Day: 6 hours. - I know it says average but I still want to add this: I usually am online on monday for about 14 hours, on other days like Wednesday and Friday I'm usually online for a few hours. What days of the week can you play: All of them. I play the most on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. When did you join Artex?: To be honest, I'm not really sure anymore. I'm pretty sure it's about a month ago though, when Artexv2 was just released. Have you had any breaks from Artex: I've had a day where I didn't play a lot for a few days. In that period I didn't really quit and still hopped on every day. The reason being was that I was stupid enough to stake away my twisted bow What is your previous experiences as a staff member online: I have quite a bit of experience being staff on other private servers. Just not really on any Runescape private server. I've tried to develop my own private server a few years back. Even though I totally got it working and stuff I never really put it online because I wasn't a good enough coder to make actual custom content back then. Other than that I've been staff on quite a few Maplestory private servers (also hosted my own server) and lots of Minecraft servers (where I've also ran my own server with a decent player base). Why do you want to be a ArtexV2 Staff member? (200 Word MIN.) So people wouldn't hesitate to ask me stuff for help. I'm usually a very helpful person but if people see I'm not staff they'd rather wait until a staff member is online to help them. To be honest, I think that's what most people put in their staff applications, to "help the community". Even though that's a very good reason, I'd also love to actually help out with the server itself in some ways. I have quite a bit of suggestions/things that'd be beneficial in the server. If I can just be part of the team to voice my opinion more that'd be enough, I'd also love to actually help out with the (website) development if people will let me. I know it says 200 words minimum but I think that a minimum word count to a reason should be removed/lowered. Sure, I can write a whole paragraph about how the community affects me, how much I love this server and such but this wouldn't actually add something valuable to the question itself. So I'll leave it at this :). What are the Top 5 Qualities a staff member should have?: -Loyal > Even when people are quitting or playing less, you as a staff member should still be there to help out the community and potential newcomers who will stick around. -Be nice > Your staff is the impression of the server. When people just joined they'll (unconsciously) decide whether a server is worth sticking around or not. If staff is acting unprofessional or just acting like a douche in game that would definitely stop people from playing and will create a toxic community. -Active > This might even be the most important one. As a staff member you're likely to stand out of the rest. If people see some similar faces around in-game to ask their questions to that's something good. If you see staff members hopping on like once a week you're likely to think "Mhmm, this server is dying out" or "Mhmm, this server has shitty staff". -Problem solver > I shouldn't really be saying why. To solve problems between people or other problems that might occur. -Helpful > So people actually feel like the staff on the server know what they are doing and they can be helped out with problems/questions they might have. Have you ever been punished on Artex?: No If yes to the above question why and when? - If you received this rank would you devote hours to playing?: Absolutely. Just not more hours then I currently play on the server. Which is still quite a bit of hours. What would you do if someone was spamming?: First tell them to stop spamming. If they don't stop their self, mute them for a few minutes just as a warning. After that, mute them again and again but every time a little bit longer. What would you do if someone was Flaming?: Tell them to stop immediately and probably instantly mute them based on what they've said exactly. What would you do if someone was being rude on the Forums?: Depends on the actual comment itself. Criticism is not that bad in most cases as long you keep it civilized. If it's straight out cursing at other people without any added factor to the message itself I would simply delete the message, post the message in the staff discord so the forum admins can decide whether to ban the person and tell the person to stop this kind of behavior. What would you do if you were informed or found out about duped items? This is a tricky one. Of all the things people can do, duping is probably the thing that can destroy servers the most. I would do anything I can do in this situation. Meaning I'd instantly tell someone higher up if I get a helper rank since I'm probably not able to stop it myself with the commands coming with this rank. I think I wouldn't even be able to solve a issue like this. I can tell people to stop duping but obviously that wouldn't help much. In my opinion the only way to solve this issue is destroying all the duped items in game and patch the dupe itself (if possible). If there's no way of tracking what items are duped or not a rollback would be the only solution. (which again, is something I probably can't do by getting a helper rank) What would you do if someone was selling items in the Help Clan Chat?: Nothing actually. I feel like you can say you're buying/selling stuff in the Clan chat as long as you don't keep repeating it or spam in there.
  2. My staff app :D

    Heya Qe! I've spoken a lot with you on the server today and you seem like a very nice person in general. Even though I have to admit the application itself is lacking in certain points (not using a lot of words, but writing words so you have more text isn't good either) I still think you will be a very good choice for staff! The best of luck man, you got my +1.

    Please update/rewrite this article completely as it's probably one of the most important articles on the forums and very misleading right now.
