    Common Staff Situations

    A player randomly shoots someone at round start and MPs have detained him.
    First is to check who that marine is and all the situation around. Perhaps it was self-defense? Perhaps there are MANY things that can change the punishment to better, worse, or not even warrant a punishment or note or anything at all! Depending on its gravity, if it’s truly a punishable offense, but obeyed all server rules, the MPs have already taken care of it and it stays as an IC issue! In case it truly is an issue outside of the game, and depending on their reaction if I contact them or other notes, it will escalate to a ban or an ugly warning on their account. It depends on the gravity of the situation.

    A player ahelps that a predator has violated the honor code when killing him, what should you do?
    If I can confirm it was a breach of their honor code, I will be in contact with the most readily available Yautja senator to help. Otherwise, I’ll tell the player to have a player report done.
    Adding to the possibility of there being general rulebreaks from the server’s general rules, I will of course also investigate that, and punish accordingly while reporting the same in full to the Yautja senate. There might (somehow) not be a WL rulebreak but breaking normal rules is also frowned upon by the senates, I have noticed that. But one way or another, if this is confirmed a problem I would be in contact with a senator through discord to solve the issue.

    You see a player walking around the ship naked and clearly lost at roundstart.
    I may not always be at ready to go help because of other important things to do, but I will do what I can in about around this order:
    First, even if I’m a bit occupied, I search for an SEA to SM them something on the likes of “Your Advisor senses are tingling that there is a very very lost (role of the player in need of help) around (location).”, or just message the SEA normally. Else, if there is no SEA, I try to get in contact with any observing mentor to or take the SEA slot, or PM the lost player. In case there are no mentors around, I can try to stop and help through PMs too but that would take precious time from me that could be used stopping someone trying to explode the round to smithereens. So, another option, depending on the time, I could tell the player to be patient, look at the wiki, and I go call a mentor to enter the game if possible. If the situation is dire.. In case there are a number of players like that, there are no responding mentors, and all else has failed, I will move on to getting into the SEA boots myself to help the poor lads, but this is TRULY a last case scenario.

    A player is being very rude to you in adminhelps, calling you names and arguing everything you say. He is requesting to speak to an Admin+ staff member.
    My judgment on their previous actions won’t be affected by their current mean comments in the meaning of me backing away from it in no way. This would only increase the severity of any punishmnet, even if none was to be given before on some cases. but, proceeding as if they has started an Ahelp to get a hand on something that happened to them, then it’s easy and as following:
    I will tell them first to calm down and be more respectful, and to understand that my conclusion is not only mine’s, but also that I have the rules open and ready to be read out with ease, that I have some liberty on how I will punish, and that I’m sure of what I’m doing, and I will not let them go to a higher rank, since generally that would only generate more problems. If they continue, I won’t tolerate it for much longer, because holding staff hostage for 10 minutes to be angry at them for something you've done is ridiculous, I will close the ticket and most possibly mute their admin verb if they’re trying to spam things. Any other rudeness on other means of conversation in game and on discord will be met in game with a mute if on CM side with a note, and maybe a ban. And if on discord, I will talk to the discord mods and forward the responsibility to make them stop, for its absolutely out of my in game jurisdiction.

    A player ahelps that a marine is named 'John Doe', how do you deal with this?
    I'd thank the player who reported politely and get to work to check out this player. Upon checking they’re actually named John Doe, I will use an SM or PM to make them change it. An SM seems very fit for this and would follow around as following: “In the corner of your eyes you see that on your information tags, your name is “John Doe”… That can’t be possible, that is not your name as that isn’t a name… You should talk to someone to change it for today as soon as possible and then change it on your own documentation.”
    OR I could go the boring and RPless way and tell them that it’s a rulebreak and they should stop. I would get their Ckey, inform my peers, and tell them to check next round if they kept the name as John Doe to punish them if so.
    If I went with the SM way, I would accompany this to make sure it happened too, and go telling people along the way nicely through SMs or PMs to get the name changed to a better one. If by any case they seem to dismiss it, ignore me, or use this as opportunity to get an even more “memey” name, I’d go forward and do the ban escalation appropriate punishment, and I’d judge this could be an 3 hour ban.
    In the case it’s a repeated offender, I would go directly to the merciless PM telling them to change their name or face consequences. These issues are not a thing that could be recurrent, and don’t deserve to be treated as such, and deserve harsher treatment for fixing.

    You see a Maintenance Tech running around in armor and carrying a rifle. The security level is green and there has been no threat to the ship in the round at this point.
    It’s no bannable offense to use armor and have a weapon on board, and I shouldn’t involve myself much. PMing the player doesn’t seem needed at all here, or even interfering, but in case this is a bit too suspicious or there was someone Ahelping it, I might check it out if there’s nothing else to do. First, I’d have this as a IC issue, but with an SM I could also push the MT into taking the armor off and storing the weapon. Doesn’t warrant much more action if the infraction was purely an ML one.

    A Marine ahelps that they were killed by a survivor. It is early round, the Marines have just landed, and the survivor claims that they were outright hostile to all Marines from the get-go and openly stated their intentions. How do you deal with this?
    (THIS ANSWER IS FOLLOWING THE OLDER VERSION OF THE RULES, WhERE THIS APPLIES. THE CURRENTLY IN TEST RULES WOULD RENDER A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT RESPONSE)
    If the survivor claimed they were outright hostile there will be immediate consequences because by rule they are to be either friendly or neutral if not CLF. IF they were CLF, I would tell the poor and dead marine that they were CLF and nothing could be done. This warrants little further investigation, reason being that if the survivor hadn’t claimed that, there would be two options, each being about who shot first and who threw punches first, and at what escalation. But since the survivor claimed full hostility, something rulebreaking, the survivor would be punished and I would not let the marine go DNR, Ahealing and VVAR damaging them to keep them down if needed until a medic was there to help.

    You receive an ahelp from a player stating that an MP has locked them up in permanent confinement for running into Requisitions and taking an attachment that was laying around.
    Priority is to check if they lied. Asking around, checking logs, seeing to what I could, and then, once investigation was finished, and if this was true, I’d proceed with calculating what was their actual brig timer (17.5 minutes). Permabrig is only for permabrigged and people with over an hour in punishment. I’d fax in as Provost or request somebody with higher power to do that for me,and in case the MP that permaed the marine is truly a bad player, I’d punish them, as they are, by server rule, obligated to follow ML and he’d have broken the Prevarication rule. Depending on the severity, a very nasty warning on their notes, and order to arrest that MP. And in worse cases, ban accordingly, making sure the victim goes free.

    The round is stagnating. There are 30 marines and 4 aliens. The marines won't leave the ship, and the aliens won't attack. What would you do, to "encourage" the sides to engage each other?
    ’d watch for a bit longer and see what the two sides are even doing. Because of numbers the Xenomorphs probably wouldn’t want to go up, and would start desperately requesting more larva for that, something I won’t give. Same for Marines, I wouldn’t give them any more men. After considering the targets for some message ordering them, I can proceed.

    USCM: I could start early on, even before waiting the 10 minutes, sending faxes to the CL and to CIC to tell them to finish their work. And after waiting, I’d roll out an Ares announcement.
    “ATTENTION, USCMHC MESSAGE RECEIVED, URGENT ORDERS.
    ‘Commander, we expect another marine drop as soon as possible. Your presence will be needed elsewhere soon and you will need to return to your station before that, so finish this now.’
    END OF COMMUNICATION”

    Hive: Choosing this is a bit hard for me as I do not play Hive, and using QM for this could end up not going well, so I would request somebody to QM the hive to hijack the DS and get going.

    (These two are in case the marines have gone shipside, for I do doubt that this would happen when they are on ground. But similar actions can be taken.)

    You are playing as a medic, and another medic overdoses all your patients and prevent marines from being revived. It seems like it may be on purpose. How do you deal with this situation?
    First, since I’m in game and right by them, I’d ask what they were doing and tell them to stop. Maybe they’re just new and got something violently wrong, and me IC helping them first can end up mitigating the situation. But, thinking about this as if malicious, I’d talk to them IC still and try to stop them, and if he goes aggressive against me or anything like that, I’d call another moderator to help me out on this, but if none are available, I’d sleep them myself, and PM them about this. And seeing this as possibly just griefing I am almost sure this could result in a 3 hour ban quite quickly, following escalation procedure, or a heavy warning if they promise to stop, doesn't have any other notes, and I pull them away from sleep, and it goes smoothly.

    The round ends, a Marine starts shooting a hostile CLF member and the CLF member ahelps about being killed after the round ended.
    First I must check where the CLF was, and if he was surrendered or brigged. An example, if he was found on the battlefield and was shooting marines just prior to the round end, and then the round ends, and he gets shot to death, that not EORG. But on the case of the marines that had the CLF surrendered suddenly shooting him on the head after round ends, then its EORG. And there’s the POW circumstance too! If he was brigged, and a marine broke into the brig to kill him, not only its EORG for break and entry, but also for the murder of a surrendered enemy, and it worsens if the MPs killed him, for they should always comply to ML by server rule, and its EORG too. The MPs would probably receive the same 3 hour ban but would have a note on them for the breach of Mandatory Obedience in Rule 11.

    A Marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start. You receive an ahelp from one of the victims.
    This is very minor and doesn’t warrant much of a response from an admin/moderator.. but an encouragement to stop through an SM could be interesting, and could scare the player from doing any more tomfoolery knowing the higher ups are watching. Other than that, that I wouldn’t interfere, its just IC, and I’d tell the person that Ahelped me that.

    You receive an ahelp from a Marine saying that he was killed by another Marine. When you ask the murderer why, he said it was because the other Marine had punched him.
    Despite any arguments that can be given about IRL events where that DOES happen, we on the server don’t accept that and have a rule for that. Rule 10, Lethal Force. The marine did not have his life endangered. This is a textbook example of improper escalation, where the murderer skipped the part where someone escalates to dangerous melee and straight up shot the one who punched him. Small ban and note, along with, of course, background investigation to see if this has happened before to this player, so the punishment can increase if needed.

    You find out that there is an improper mutiny occuring. The mutineers are rallying together and preparing to storm the CIC. How would you attempt to resolve this situation?
    I’d advise all admins and moderators present about the situation so I can get help with crowd controlling, and PM or subtle all players to cease and desist. If any continue, I’d sleep all, and start asking questions and banning if necessary for the rule 11, part of valid mutinies. They should have contacted an admin MUCH earlier than this to mutiny, and they were about to storm CIC already, it was too late for it.

    There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.
    I get the logs up on what they said and start watching them. I immediately SM the whole group something in the likes of “You feel like the invisible eyes of morality are burning through you, and you should stop immediately these comments.”. Continuation will lead to LARGE bans and ugly notes on their account, almost certainly making free use of rule 3’s Racism and Bigotry rule to give the larger bans, since the team does allow for larger bans in this case. Most possibly also adding large warning notes to those that have made the heavy comments here, they need to be monitored for any posterior attempt at this shouldn’t receive any mercy.

    A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.
    First course of action -If it is visibly something suspiciously malicious- is to ban the player with a straight up week ban, and aheal the wounded so the round can continue. If needed, use narrate that it was all just a mass hallucination and then proceed with an investigation with the team to see if there were any other notes, if the person ever did anything wrong before, fetch playtimes, to see what’s the next course of action. Maybe it was something recurring and a permanent ban should be issued, or the week’s ban at least, it will all depend on what is found, and on the severity of their actions.

    You see a player playing a Xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines straight from the Xeno hive the second they burst and die.
    Check their notes and see if that was ever done before. If it’s the first time, and it was an accident, warn with a PM and possibly a note. If it happened before, or was intentional, note and ban with the according escalation.

    You see a Xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat, as well as insulting the Queen.
    Admin message them for them to stop immediately. If they comply, I note them of LRPing as Xeno and insulting the queen. If it continues, punish according to the escalation proceedures.

    A Xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different Xeno player ahelps that it's low role play to call it a "dropship".
    That is not an issue in any way. According to lore, the hivemind that you type and read from are thoughts translated into English words, so the use of dropship, shuttle, flying thing, metal bird, host transport... should all be valid! I’ll inform the player that ahelped and move on.

    A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet. You receive an ahelp from a marine regarding this.
    Request that the command staff clarify that through LOOC. If not done, then I’d myself clarify through an area narrate/SM, and note the command staff some time later. If the command staff continue, I will warn that I will ban him if he doesn’t stop, and will do it if continued, leaving note on them of LRP and ignoring server staff’s authority (Rule 2, Human Roleplay Standards section, subsection of Aliens & Predators. Rule 0.2 - Authority)

    You find a Marine killing another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself. There are two other marines in the pod along with him.
    Question is omitting information and seems slightly deceiving, doesn't specify if the number of marines on it counts the one that is dead. If the “two marines alongside him” doesn’t count the now dead one, then there were four marines trying to get into the pod, and if he is exempt by the rules to save his life here, then he would be quite alright. But if the question is saying in total not counting him, then with him, there would only be three marines, for three EVAC sleepers, and he murdered for no reason at all, and will suffer the consequences.

    IN CASE THE QUESTION DOESN'T INCLUDE THE DEAD MARINE:

    Textbook case of exemption from improper escalation IF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA MEET:

    - MARINE IS IN IMMEDIATE DANGER

    -THERE ARE NO OTHER PODS AROUND OR SPACE, OR THEY ARE UNREACHABLE BECAUSE OF THE IMMEDIATE DANGER

    That warrants panic from the character, and improper escalation doesn't apply.

    IN CASE IT DOES INCLUDE THE DEAD MARINE:
    1: He killed for no reason, for there was enough space for him:
    Ban and note for their transgression of improper escalation.
    2: There was NO SPACE in this pod for the marine, but there wasn't immediate danger
    Same thing, there was no need for his life wasn’t endangered. Ban and note for improper escalation.

    If the murderer was truly exempt, then I’d explain to the one requesting Admin help the situation and explain that there is nothing I can do.

    A player insults you after you warn them for a minor issue and begins ranting in LOOC or dchat about staff and mentions you specifically, referring to you as an 'idiot' and a 'retard'.
    I’d possibly ignore them, but will stop them if they continue or worsens their cursing. I will use rules and my rights to stop and punish them accordingly, muting, noting, banning, anything that fits their behavior.

    A player ahelps saying he was hugged by a Xeno when he was ssd, and wants the larva be removed from him via admin powers. How do you handle the ahelp?
    I’d tell them that it’s not a thing I can do. There are no rules or anything that protect him from being hugged while SSD, or protected from much of anything while SSD.

    You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforce a rule.
    I’d first talk directly to him about this to try to clear this. If it is solved then it’s all good, but if doubt stays even after we discuss, I’ll go and ask myself about this to my fellows on the staff discord, but without exposing my fellow, just asking about the information, or rule. After that, I can use it as leverage to prove my colleague wrong or for me to understand the situation and understand I was wrong. If I was right and my peer wrong, but he still didn’t want to admit it, I would be in contact with whoever is higher in the hierarchy that I need to contact to sort this out with more knowledge. after all, I’m truly far from a know it all.
    If I was wrong, I'll tell my colleague that he was right, apologize, and fix myself.

    Two staff are arguing in msay if an ahelp is breaking a rule. Because the staff who took the ahelp thinks the player broke a rule, they ban the player based on their interpretation of the rules, with others thinking the person was fine. What would you do?
    I’d probably be asking what happened and giving my opinion on it, and if it continues to clutter around for long, I’d ask for us to move the convo to the staff discord, so to keep MOOC cleaner and to discuss it over a very much so better platform, even calling people that are not currently in game to give their opinion on how to proceed.

    Why would you like to become a moderator?
    -Why would you like to become a moderator?
    I would be absolutely ecstatic to work on keeping the game fresh, well taken care of, and with an simulated ambient outside of the game world to the players, with random events, fax responses, ARES interactions, and much more!
    Although I really do not know the Xeno side much, I would still of course work on things planetside to add fun objectives or interactions around the map for the Xenos too, that could help improve their RP too, something quite lackluster.
    and taking this little time off to maintain the server feels like a bit of a dream in a very odd way to me, and an interesting occupation with responsibility to take, with power to have decision on things that I think should be sorted when it happens but completely lack the power to do as a commoner.
    With me and my peers working on the backlines to ensure there's someone higher people can contact through fax and other means that makes it feel like there's a wider chain of command and that they are part of an actual space armada, and will definitely help create a scenario for the marines on the ground, and for command on the ship, despite them living and spacefaring in a damaged, run down, undersupplied and barely armed ship.
    And most possibly same with the xenos, helping with QM telepathic announcements, narrates, and events groundside to enrich the ambient, I expect to make playing on the two sides as fun as it can with what’s in my power!

    In your opinion, what is the most important quality for a moderator?
    Be flexible, so you're not just spitting rules, for they're up to interpretation, and I have seen a rule of thumb to let lighter things slide if its positive for the cool RP. So, having the flexibility to have an open mind where you need to and be creative and prepared to have things made on the fly are essential!

    Anything else you want to add?
    Time to moderate can vary violently depending on high school test schedule, but not much else should be on the way.
    After careful consideration, I see that my minimal experience with being staff really wouldn’t amount to anything here.
    Of course depending on the gravity of many situations, some things should only deserve a note and to be resolved in game when possible, but I took an more firm approach to this as I do assume these cases are heavier ones. All proper investigation would come with these!
    While my DMs are not open, you can ping or ask a friend request to talk to me about this!
    PAN-PAN. There have been changes recently to two things about moderating!! One of these is the new escalation policies, that adds another chance for a player to redeem themselves, and changes the rules on hostile survivors (just a test for now, but I gotta show I also acknowledge this here!)

    Something I want to cover from the last application is. Your intent and thought process was right, which is often what we care about most from prospective staff. However you lacked and still clearly lack some understanding of the processes behind staff actions. I think potentially while making this app you were scared of missing something? A lot of the questions come off as very wordy without saying anything specific.

    Again I think in this application you show the right thought process and intent and on the back of that I’m more than happy to +1.

    But I also think your trial period will involve a lot of reading and discussing the escalation procedures and investigation standards, which is fine. As such I urge other staff to measure this app on the merits of its intent and understanding of community interaction, not actually on its understanding of the correct process of moderating which can be taught in training.

    This answer is not particularly clear, though overall it is correct. You show that you would investigate before acting and then act upon escalation (even if you do not mention what escalation). It goes without saying that investigating would involve checking someones’ note, so the lack of directly mentioning it isn’t necessarily problematic.

    This answer is correct and also says you’d contact the right people.

    Correct answer. Doesn’t necessarily show how you’d do it but what you’d do. often times these questions are asking what and how not just what.

    Really good answer, a bit wordy but pretty much a model answer. If you take the right training path as smod you can also become a discord mod.

    A player ahelps that a marine is named 'John Doe', how do you deal with this?

    I'd thank the player who reported politely and get to work to check out this player. Upon checking they’re actually named John Doe, I will use an SM or PM to make them change it. An SM seems very fit for this and would follow around as following: “In the corner of your eyes you see that on your information tags, your name is “John Doe”… That can’t be possible, that is not your name as that isn’t a name… You should talk to someone to change it for today as soon as possible and then change it on your own documentation.”
    OR I could go the boring and RPless way and tell them that it’s a rulebreak and they should stop. I would get their Ckey, inform my peers, and tell them to check next round if they kept the name as John Doe to punish them if so.
    If I went with the SM way, I would accompany this to make sure it happened too, and go telling people along the way nicely through SMs or PMs to get the name changed to a better one. If by any case they seem to dismiss it, ignore me, or use this as opportunity to get an even more “memey” name, I’d go forward and do the ban escalation appropriate punishment, and I’d judge this could be an 3 hour ban.
    In the case it’s a repeated offender, I would go directly to the merciless PM telling them to change their name or face consequences. These issues are not a thing that could be recurrent, and don’t deserve to be treated as such, and deserve harsher treatment for fixing.
    Strange answer, mostly correct, SM is an interesting answer here but probably not the best one. If you do make someone change their name in round for having a name outside our rules then you will need to note them, if you’re going to note someone usually it’s good practice to let them know you’re handling it OOC which a PM does loud and clear.

    To be clear, although you aren’t prohibited from using your IC powers to resolve OOC issues, you probably shouldn’t then escalate the IC action. Leave all escalation noted and OOC so it is clear to the players and other staff what is happening.

    You see a Maintenance Tech running around in armor and carrying a rifle. The security level is green and there has been no threat to the ship in the round at this point.

    It’s no bannable offense to use armor and have a weapon on board, and I shouldn’t involve myself much. PMing the player doesn’t seem needed at all here, or even interfering, but in case this is a bit too suspicious or there was someone Ahelping it, I might check it out if there’s nothing else to do. First, I’d have this as a IC issue, but with an SM I could also push the MT into taking the armor off and storing the weapon. Doesn’t warrant much more action if the infraction was purely an ML one.
    Good answer, SM is very effective here, especially because this is not usually an OOC issue or an issue that would result in OOC action. Though there could be scenarios with the new RP standards where this is an issue, however I imagine those are mostly edge cases.

    A Marine ahelps that they were killed by a survivor. It is early round, the Marines have just landed, and the survivor claims that they were outright hostile to all Marines from the get-go and openly stated their intentions. How do you deal with this?

    (THIS ANSWER IS FOLLOWING THE OLDER VERSION OF THE RULES, WhERE THIS APPLIES. THE CURRENTLY IN TEST RULES WOULD RENDER A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT RESPONSE)
    If the survivor claimed they were outright hostile there will be immediate consequences because by rule they are to be either friendly or neutral if not CLF. IF they were CLF, I would tell the poor and dead marine that they were CLF and nothing could be done. This warrants little further investigation, reason being that if the survivor hadn’t claimed that, there would be two options, each being about who shot first and who threw punches first, and at what escalation. But since the survivor claimed full hostility, something rulebreaking, the survivor would be punished and I would not let the marine go DNR, Ahealing and VVAR damaging them to keep them down if needed until a medic was there to help.
    Good catch with the change in rules here, shows that you are keeping up to date with the rule changes.

    Good answer, shows clear investigation, clear use of staff tools to fix the situation and a good understanding of more complex rules.

    You receive an ahelp from a player stating that an MP has locked them up in permanent confinement for running into Requisitions and taking an attachment that was laying around.

    Priority is to check if they lied. Asking around, checking logs, seeing to what I could, and then, once investigation was finished, and if this was true, I’d proceed with calculating what was their actual brig timer (17.5 minutes). Permabrig is only for permabrigged and people with over an hour in punishment. I’d fax in as Provost or request somebody with higher power to do that for me,and in case the MP that permaed the marine is truly a bad player, I’d punish them, as they are, by server rule, obligated to follow ML and he’d have broken the Prevarication rule. Depending on the severity, a very nasty warning on their notes, and order to arrest that MP. And in worse cases, ban accordingly, making sure the victim goes free.
    Good answer, shows clear investigation and repercussions. You could also have event-able staff (smod+) send you in as a provost, and this would be a situation where depending on what other ML the MP had broken a Jban could be justified.

    The round is stagnating. There are 30 marines and 4 aliens. The marines won't leave the ship, and the aliens won't attack. What would you do, to "encourage" the sides to engage each other?

    ’d watch for a bit longer and see what the two sides are even doing. Because of numbers the Xenomorphs probably wouldn’t want to go up, and would start desperately requesting more larva for that, something I won’t give. Same for Marines, I wouldn’t give them any more men. After considering the targets for some message ordering them, I can proceed.

    USCM: I could start early on, even before waiting the 10 minutes, sending faxes to the CL and to CIC to tell them to finish their work. And after waiting, I’d roll out an Ares announcement.
    “ATTENTION, USCMHC MESSAGE RECEIVED, URGENT ORDERS.
    ‘Commander, we expect another marine drop as soon as possible. Your presence will be needed elsewhere soon and you will need to return to your station before that, so finish this now.’
    END OF COMMUNICATION”

    Hive: Choosing this is a bit hard for me as I do not play Hive, and using QM for this could end up not going well, so I would request somebody to QM the hive to hijack the DS and get going.

    (These two are in case the marines have gone shipside, for I do doubt that this would happen when they are on ground. But similar actions can be taken.)
    Good answer, looking to others for assistance is never frowned upon. Sometimes a ARES announcement might be quicker or more effective than a fax or even just SMing the CO/aCO directly, but fax would work in most situations.

    You are playing as a medic, and another medic overdoses all your patients and prevent marines from being revived. It seems like it may be on purpose. How do you deal with this situation?

    First, since I’m in game and right by them, I’d ask what they were doing and tell them to stop. Maybe they’re just new and got something violently wrong, and me IC helping them first can end up mitigating the situation. But, thinking about this as if malicious, I’d talk to them IC still and try to stop them, and if he goes aggressive against me or anything like that, I’d call another moderator to help me out on this, but if none are available, I’d sleep them myself, and PM them about this. And seeing this as possibly just griefing I am almost sure this could result in a 3 hour ban quite quickly, following escalation procedure, or a heavy warning if they promise to stop, doesn't have any other notes, and I pull them away from sleep, and it goes smoothly.
    Good answer. As far as staff are concerned you are involved due to it being your patients being OD’d and it might be better to ahelp it first while chatting with them IC. If it really isn’t anything and they’ve made a mistake other staff should be able to see that too and won’t ban unnecessarily.

    The round ends, a Marine starts shooting a hostile CLF member and the CLF member ahelps about being killed after the round ended.

    First I must check where the CLF was, and if he was surrendered or brigged. An example, if he was found on the battlefield and was shooting marines just prior to the round end, and then the round ends, and he gets shot to death, that not EORG. But on the case of the marines that had the CLF surrendered suddenly shooting him on the head after round ends, then its EORG. And there’s the POW circumstance too! If he was brigged, and a marine broke into the brig to kill him, not only its EORG for break and entry, but also for the murder of a surrendered enemy, and it worsens if the MPs killed him, for they should always comply to ML by server rule, and its EORG too. The MPs would probably receive the same 3 hour ban but would have a note on them for the breach of Mandatory Obedience in Rule 11.
    Good answer. I’m pretty sure PoWs get different (lesser) rights under ML but that involves a lot of complex ML knowledge that I too would have to double check before acting. If you have adequate reason to suspect it is EORG less investigation is required, though investigating never hurts.

    A Marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start. You receive an ahelp from one of the victims.

    This is very minor and doesn’t warrant much of a response from an admin/moderator.. but an encouragement to stop through an SM could be interesting, and could scare the player from doing any more tomfoolery knowing the higher ups are watching. Other than that, that I wouldn’t interfere, its just IC, and I’d tell the person that Ahelped me that.
    Good answer however: Sending an SM is interfering and should be treated as such (if someone hasn’t broken the rules there is no need for IC intervention where MPs are present and effective); stealing gear can be an OOC rulebreak if it happens to be gear that cannot be easily replaced such as specialist gear (or the Command Tablet).

    You receive an ahelp from a Marine saying that he was killed by another Marine. When you ask the murderer why, he said it was because the other Marine had punched him.

    Despite any arguments that can be given about IRL events where that DOES happen, we on the server don’t accept that and have a rule for that. Rule 10, Lethal Force. The marine did not have his life endangered. This is a textbook example of improper escalation, where the murderer skipped the part where someone escalates to dangerous melee and straight up shot the one who punched him. Small ban and note, along with, of course, background investigation to see if this has happened before to this player, so the punishment can increase if needed.
    Good answer. I.E. isn’t always ban on first offense but it can be especially if the player isn’t willing to accept or learn from a note. Shows escalation and investigation.

    You find out that there is an improper mutiny occuring. The mutineers are rallying together and preparing to storm the CIC. How would you attempt to resolve this situation?

    I’d advise all admins and moderators present about the situation so I can get help with crowd controlling, and PM or subtle all players to cease and desist. If any continue, I’d sleep all, and start asking questions and banning if necessary for the rule 11, part of valid mutinies. They should have contacted an admin MUCH earlier than this to mutiny, and they were about to storm CIC already, it was too late for it.
    Good answer, getting help is usually the right move. Stick with PMing in this situation over SMing or even better use MOOC to quickly tell all marines to knock it off. And I agree with your final decision, we don’t reward bad mutinies with approval.

    There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.

    I get the logs up on what they said and start watching them. I immediately SM the whole group something in the likes of “You feel like the invisible eyes of morality are burning through you, and you should stop immediately these comments.”. Continuation will lead to LARGE bans and ugly notes on their account, almost certainly making free use of rule 3’s Racism and Bigotry rule to give the larger bans, since the team does allow for larger bans in this case. Most possibly also adding large warning notes to those that have made the heavy comments here, they need to be monitored for any posterior attempt at this shouldn’t receive any mercy.
    Okay answer. The escalation seems right as does the use of rules. Your use of SM here is potentially problematic as well as your use of the word mercy. SM in this situation doesn’t make much sense and comes off a lot as ‘big brother is watching you’ style moderating, the use of the word mercy also suggests that you may find these ahelps difficult. For example I am pretty clear that if it were up to me, the community standards on what was or wasn’t bannable bigotry would be stricter, however that doesn’t fit within the community standards set by staff as a team and as such it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to act with my own standards here. What I mean is, will you find it difficult to not police something you find personally offensive or upsetting that is not in violation of community rules?

    A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.

    First course of action -If it is visibly something suspiciously malicious- is to ban the player with a straight up week ban, and aheal the wounded so the round can continue. If needed, use narrate that it was all just a mass hallucination and then proceed with an investigation with the team to see if there were any other notes, if the person ever did anything wrong before, fetch playtimes, to see what’s the next course of action. Maybe it was something recurring and a permanent ban should be issued, or the week’s ban at least, it will all depend on what is found, and on the severity of their actions.
    Good answer. IC solution seems funny and potentially a bit janky but also a creative use of your mod tools (I gotta try that sometime). Good use of escalation and investigation.

    You see a player playing a Xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines straight from the Xeno hive the second they burst and die.

    Check their notes and see if that was ever done before. If it’s the first time, and it was an accident, warn with a PM and possibly a note. If it happened before, or was intentional, note and ban with the according escalation.
    Good answer. Fits within both new and old escalation, though technically going of the escalation rules that this app was based off of, you should always note this unless they are a very new player. (New escalation rules are different).

    You see a Xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat, as well as insulting the Queen.

    Admin message them for them to stop immediately. If they comply, I note them of LRPing as Xeno and insulting the queen. If it continues, punish according to the escalation proceedures.
    This answer is Good. I see no problems with this answer.

    A Xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different Xeno player ahelps that it's low role play to call it a "dropship".

    That is not an issue in any way. According to lore, the hivemind that you type and read from are thoughts translated into English words, so the use of dropship, shuttle, flying thing, metal bird, host transport... should all be valid! I’ll inform the player that ahelped and move on.
    This answer is Good. Again I see no problems with this answer.

    A Command staff player at briefing near round-start mentions there are aliens on the planet. You receive an ahelp from a marine regarding this.

    Request that the command staff clarify that through LOOC. If not done, then I’d myself clarify through an area narrate/SM, and note the command staff some time later. If the command staff continue, I will warn that I will ban him if he doesn’t stop, and will do it if continued, leaving note on them of LRP and ignoring server staff’s authority (Rule 2, Human Roleplay Standards section, subsection of Aliens & Predators. Rule 0.2 - Authority)
    This answer is good. If the CIC player in question persistently ignored you in PMs and broke rules related to the role in the round, it could also be a jban.

    You find a Marine killing another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself. There are two other marines in the pod along with him.

    Question is omitting information and seems slightly deceiving, doesn't specify if the number of marines on it counts the one that is dead. If the “two marines alongside him” doesn’t count the now dead one, then there were four marines trying to get into the pod, and if he is exempt by the rules to save his life here, then he would be quite alright. But if the question is saying in total not counting him, then with him, there would only be three marines, for three EVAC sleepers, and he murdered for no reason at all, and will suffer the consequences.

    IN CASE THE QUESTION DOESN'T INCLUDE THE DEAD MARINE:

    Textbook case of exemption from improper escalation IF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA MEET:

    - MARINE IS IN IMMEDIATE DANGER

    -THERE ARE NO OTHER PODS AROUND OR SPACE, OR THEY ARE UNREACHABLE BECAUSE OF THE IMMEDIATE DANGER

    That warrants panic from the character, and improper escalation doesn't apply.

    IN CASE IT DOES INCLUDE THE DEAD MARINE:
    1: He killed for no reason, for there was enough space for him:
    Ban and note for their transgression of improper escalation.
    2: There was NO SPACE in this pod for the marine, but there wasn't immediate danger
    Same thing, there was no need for his life wasn’t endangered. Ban and note for improper escalation.

    If the murderer was truly exempt, then I’d explain to the one requesting Admin help the situation and explain that there is nothing I can do.
    I’m pretty sure this question was written slightly wrong rather than purposely deceptive. But good answer nonetheless. Potentially even if there was no space and now immediate danger they would be justified in killing the marine, as during hijack and an evac it can be safely assumed that everyone onboard is in a life or death situation (in most cases). I can see this not being true if the hijack has been defeated (one or a few xenos left stalling).

    A player insults you after you warn them for a minor issue and begins ranting in LOOC or dchat about staff and mentions you specifically, referring to you as an 'idiot' and a 'retard'.

    I’d possibly ignore them, but will stop them if they continue or worsens their cursing. I will use rules and my rights to stop and punish them accordingly, muting, noting, banning, anything that fits their behavior.
    Good answer. A mute here is good, if you then mute them in one place and they move it to the next, they’re really looking at a 3hr ban.

    A player ahelps saying he was hugged by a Xeno when he was ssd, and wants the larva be removed from him via admin powers. How do you handle the ahelp?

    I’d tell them that it’s not a thing I can do. There are no rules or anything that protect him from being hugged while SSD, or protected from much of anything while SSD.
    Good answer. I see nothing to add here.

    You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforce a rule.

    I’d first talk directly to him about this to try to clear this. If it is solved then it’s all good, but if doubt stays even after we discuss, I’ll go and ask myself about this to my fellows on the staff discord, but without exposing my fellow, just asking about the information, or rule. After that, I can use it as leverage to prove my colleague wrong or for me to understand the situation and understand I was wrong. If I was right and my peer wrong, but he still didn’t want to admit it, I would be in contact with whoever is higher in the hierarchy that I need to contact to sort this out with more knowledge. after all, I’m truly far from a know it all.
    If I was wrong, I'll tell my colleague that he was right, apologize, and fix myself.
    Good answer BUT I think maybe you’re not using the right words here. Using something as leverage against seems confrontational, where I think you mean you’d use it as clarification it’s not about labeling who is right and who is wrong, rather it is about labeling what is the right thing to do. Good use of your tools available, if in doubt always ask your manager or trainer, or whoever can help.

    Two staff are arguing in msay if an ahelp is breaking a rule. Because the staff who took the ahelp thinks the player broke a rule, they ban the player based on their interpretation of the rules, with others thinking the person was fine. What would you do?

    I’d probably be asking what happened and giving my opinion on it, and if it continues to clutter around for long, I’d ask for us to move the convo to the staff discord, so to keep MOOC cleaner and to discuss it over a very much so better platform, even calling people that are not currently in game to give their opinion on how to proceed.
    Good answer. If they’re arguing though, especially in a confrontational manner, it’s often best to go seek help from their manager or your manager to clarify and handle the staff conflict, rather than adding fuel to the fire.


    I’ve chosen not to reply to the reason behind your application or on what you think is the best quality in a moderator as these were (in my opinion) totally correct the last time you posted them.

    As always I would like to stress that my feedback is often far harsher than what is the minimum acceptable standard for staff. I'm providing you feedback on how to make the best application, so that should future applicants come across this app they know how to best improve.

    I think that you have shown signs of great improvement which is the most important thing you used the time between now and your last app to read up and re-think most of your answers in a way that shows commitment and drive.

    I’m way more than happy to give this a big +1.

    Your note history is excellent, you were great to work with in events that involved you, you've been part of the community for a long time and I can't recall you ever sticking out negatively in any way.

    Easy +1 from me.

    Hey, afternoon to all of you! Its good to see I'm receiving more positive feedback this time around, I did put some effort into understanding situations and correcting myself, and I do hope it helps!

    Now, to business!

    First of all I need to correct myself in some things. Luckily, small things! Due to me needing to rush the input of information so the forum wouldn't lot ge out as I copied things from my Word doc, I did some mistakes that I have identified. First.. My Ckey is visibly wrong, the corrected form is "Tsunamico". Second, small typo on the character's name. Correct form is "Mark "Legless" Connor". And lastly, I have accidentally copied the "Why would you like to become a moderator?" part from my Word doc. That's all the small mistakes that I could find.

    Now, Moonshanks! I sadly don't know how to quote on advanced so I'll just hope for the best here.

    For starters, my lack of more firm responses on ban times and such. I must say I am scared of making mistakes and was truly more light on the thing, causing that lack of clarity. I am a bit confused still on new way that warnings, notes, and bans work now. (I am still with my head wrapped around the one still from 2020, I had searched for a newer version of it but found it nowhere, if anybody has a link, please send it to me.) Its a bit more complicated than I'd say it should be to see and understand how it works and it feels wronf to ask people when I was donig this, so I sadly fell back on keeping it a bit more vague, but showing my understanding of the situation and the gravity of the penalty that I would apply.
    A little addendum here, my apologies for these responses being so wordy, I did truly get carried away with writing them. I'll work on keeping things a bit more concise where possible.

    A player ahelps that a marine is named 'John Doe', how do you deal with this?

    I'd thank the player who reported politely and get to work to check out this player. Upon checking they’re actually named John Doe, I will use an SM or PM to make them change it. An SM seems very fit for this and would follow around as following: “In the corner of your eyes you see that on your information tags, your name is “John Doe”… That can’t be possible, that is not your name as that isn’t a name… You should talk to someone to change it for today as soon as possible and then change it on your own documentation.”
    OR I could go the boring and RPless way and tell them that it’s a rulebreak and they should stop. I would get their Ckey, inform my peers, and tell them to check next round if they kept the name as John Doe to punish them if so.
    If I went with the SM way, I would accompany this to make sure it happened too, and go telling people along the way nicely through SMs or PMs to get the name changed to a better one. If by any case they seem to dismiss it, ignore me, or use this as opportunity to get an even more “memey” name, I’d go forward and do the ban escalation appropriate punishment, and I’d judge this could be an 3 hour ban.
    In the case it’s a repeated offender, I would go directly to the merciless PM telling them to change their name or face consequences. These issues are not a thing that could be recurrent, and don’t deserve to be treated as such, and deserve harsher treatment for fixing.
    Strange answer, mostly correct, SM is an interesting answer here but probably not the best one. If you do make someone change their name in round for having a name outside our rules then you will need to note them, if you’re going to note someone usually it’s good practice to let them know you’re handling it OOC which a PM does loud and clear.

    To be clear, although you aren’t prohibited from using your IC powers to resolve OOC issues, you probably shouldn’t then escalate the IC action. Leave all escalation noted and OOC so it is clear to the players and other staff what is happening.
    -Hm, I see. Then if I understood this correctly, if I want to proceed with IC name change (To fix this for this round while wanting this fixed for the next rounds), I should also, and beforehand PM them and note correctly.


    There are minor racist comments going on IC. 9 of the 10 people are laughing and RPing but one player gets offended and Adminhelps about it.

    I get the logs up on what they said and start watching them.

What I mean is, will you find it difficult to not police something you find personally offensive or upsetting that is not in violation of community rules?
    -I do not think I would hand cases like this with any difficulty, the word "mercy" may have been a bit too harsh in a way. I owuld handle this like a rulebreak should be handled, and I'm generally pretty chill with situations, and in real life I have had nay a problem handling with situations like this. And additionally, at situations that are not rulebreaks I wouldn't interfere, but the rules about Racism and Bigotry do seem to be very strict on this, so I can't see a situation like this that won't fall into a rulebreak. Also, about the SM option. It was the only thing I was able to come up at this time to interact with the players in a more organic manner, and looking back at it now, I feel like the option of just a PM to the players to chill out is much superior.


    You find a Marine killing another Marine on the EVAC Pod to take the last spot and claims it was RP as he was saving himself. There are two other marines in the pod along with him.

I can see this not being true if the hijack has been defeated (one or a few xenos left stalling).
    -I do politely disagree depending on the situation present on the ship, and what qualifies as immediate danger. Being behind cadelines as people get into the escape pods behind them with only a single xeno harassing you is, for me, not immediate danger despite being 20 other xenos fighting on another area, or moving towards you, and you can be somewhat civilized on your approach to enter the pods. It will all depend a LOT on the general situation, and will require of me the knowledge of the situation around. of course, observing the situation like I assume I would be I would be able to see both sides of the battle and determine this with ease.


    You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforce a rule.

    I’d first talk directly to him about this to try to clear this. If it is solved then it’s all good, but if doubt stays even after we discuss, I’ll go and ask myself about this to my fellows on the staff discord, but without exposing my fellow, just asking about the information, or rule.

Good use of your tools available, if in doubt always ask your manager or trainer, or whoever can help.
    -I need to watch my tone as I write more, as using the word "leverage" feels harsh and agressive. THAT IS NOT THE INTENT. But the correct term did not come to my mind at the time, nor comes to me right now. But the information acquired would be use as a fact to confirm that my arguments are the correct ones.




    I'm very happy to see that I did fewer mistakes this time, and I'll be hoping for the best on the coming days! Have an awesome afternoon all of you!

    Not much to add beyond what Moonshanks said. Notes seem fine, tho there is and a minor warning on discord from when we changed policy in the WL channel, id say imo it is fine to overlook due to circumstances. +1.

    It's been some time since your last application, and I can say you did well with that time. You have tripled the amount of knowledge of server rules to us and that deserves some respect. For this I give you a +1. Although I would like to see your play times if you don't mind.

    While your first application showed a lot of potential, there were some issues with not having a strong enough baseline understanding of server rules.
    I'm very glad that you took the feedback to heart, reviewed rules, and submitted a second application that's much stronger!

    I'm pleased to welcome you as a trial mod!
    Welcome to the team!
