    Common Staff Situations

    A player randomly shoots someone at round start and MPs have detained him.
    PM the player to find out the situation. There are two things to this. It could have been an accident and if they would apologize i see no problem. Missclicks happen.

    I would obviously PM them and ask about the reason they shot. If i believed it was intentional i would apply ban/note depending on severity and their note history.

    A player ahelps that a predator has violated the honor code when killing him, what should you do?
    Depends entirely on severity of the violation. Normal honor code violations are handled by the whitelist council. I would of course point them the right direction for that. However for clear griefing it's a straight bonk.

    You see a player walking around the ship naked and clearly lost at roundstart.
    PM them to ask them if they are new.(No response = Tell them how to respond) If they are, time to drop new player copypasta (rules,quicksart guide) on them and message SEA for help.

    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.
    Depends on severity. If it's too much point them towards 0.2. I would also point them towards staff reports if they feel my moderating is not up to par.

    Of course discuss proceeding on this with other staff members. And once again depending on severity note and warn them.

    A player ahelps that a marine is named 'John Doe', how do you deal with this?
    PM the player on the name. Since this a name that is essentially forbidden in our rules due to it being a name for unknown / unidentified people. I would PM them to ask whether they want name change or cryo.

    Also depending on their notes regarding name rule breaks apply note/ban. If it is a new player make sure to explain to them the rule and proceed with Common Staff Situation 3.

    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.
    SOP issue entirely unless they are also griefing/ being very low RP. MPs seem to have some work to do.

    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?
    Survivors are not supposed to be hostile to marines and as such i would PM the player with this information. Marines are essentially saving them.

    Proper escalation may apply.

    I know there are situations where survivors are supposed to be evil but it's usually event related. So i would discuss that with event organizing staff.

    Note this down and depending on their note history also apply ban.

    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.
    PM the MP to get their side of story and make sure to properly investigate. Make sure to find out if they did not commit other crimes like escaping brig or attacking the RO/CT.

    If the MP did actually brig them wrongfully it's note/ban depending on severity and note history. If they are newer player i would also get SEA to help them. And give them the relevant rules.

    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?
    Tell xenos to take dropship up using the Queen mother. Or using XOOC to remind them they win if they go up using alamo no matter what. They will also get a larva every minute so it should be fine.

    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?
    Get another staff member to deal with this as i am directly involved. If there are no staff members online attempt to get them online. I would also attempt to deal with this in IC before eventually LOOC. If it is not on purpose and they are newer player get them SEA.

    The round ends, a Marine starts shooting a hostile CLF member and the CLF member ahelps about being killed after the round ended.
    It should be IC as atacking a different faction does not show as EORG. So i tell them that it is a IC issue. IC round technically continues after the end.

    A Marine is running around disarming, punching and stealing gear at round start. You receive an ahelp from one of the victims.
    This falls under round beginning shenanigans. I would PM them to stop and apply note/ depending on their history i could also apply a ban.

    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.
    I would investigate if this was true.. check if it was proper escalation. I would give the offending marine escalation rule for read/reread. Note/ban depending on note history.

    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?
    Inform them they need to ahelp to start a mutiny. If they do not stop try MOOC if that does not help sleep them. Other rules may apply depending on what they did until they were stopped. Note down the offenders.

    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.
    Depends on severity. IC unless it is too severe. If there are big words being dropped tell them to tone it down. If they don't note/ban depending on history.

    A marine opens fire at round start in briefing killing multiple marines and instantly logs off.
    Clearly griefer.. possibly new player check note history, check with other staff, apply short ban.

    You see a player playing a Xeno larva/chestburster run towards the frontlines straight from the Xeno hive the second they burst and die.
    PM them about it and note it down. If they already have a note for this xeno ban may be in order. They also might be new player... in that case point them towards rules and quickstart guide.

    You see a Xeno memeing, saying AYYLMAO, REEEEEE etc in hivemind chat, as well as insulting the Queen.
    PM them that there is a standard for xenomorph roleplay note this down. Insulting queen means they are insulting themselves as xenos are a hivemind. Note this down. Ban them from Xenos depending on history.

    A Xeno player calls the shuttle a "dropship". A different Xeno player ahelps that it's low role play to call it a "dropship".
    Inform the ahelper that Xeno speak is essentially xeno thoughts translated into English. And they are free to call things what they are. This should be completely fine.

    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.
    PM them that they do not know about that xenos are on planet before dropping. Maybe a note depending on severity. If all marines take after this MOOC them that they do not know about xenos being there yet.

    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.
    This depends on availability of pods and how close the danger is. It could also properly escalated. Make sure to get both sides of story though first.

    May be ok may be not really depends on how the attacker RPs it and if it actually is life threatening situation for them.

    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'.
    Tell them to cool off. Point them towards 0.2. Note this down in their notes. Maybe even ban depending on their note history.

    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 tell them i am sorry but it's a fair game for xenos. Unfortunately even if it was not their fault like internet dropping there is not much i can do about that. And suggest if they are going off on purpose to get into safer location.

    You see a fellow staff member give wrong information in an Adminhelp or incorrectly enforce a rule.
    Msay/PM. If they do not listen go to appropriate higher ranked staff member and discuss it with them/ask for a ruling. I however do not believe any of you to be unreasonable.

    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?
    Talk to them in msay if it is my place to do so. I believe staff members to be reasonable people. If we can't come to understanding seek higher power to make a ruling. Ey and i might also be wrong. Might also just tell them to go to higher power themselves for ruling. RULINGS IMPORTANT

    Why would you like to become a moderator?
    I used be staff mentor when those were a thing. I was allowed to answer faxes which i really miss and i was allowed to help people more then i am currently helping since community mentors are very limited these days.

    I also really enjoy chatting with people. Sue me (please don't)

    In your opinion, what is the most important quality for a moderator?
    Patience. I mean i remember from when mentors could see ahelps what kind of people you sometimes get and patience is really a virtue when working with people.

    Anything else you
    I did it boys i applied after 4ish (more like 2) years of being a mentor to the dark side.

    Short and direct answers, nice. This mod app isn't spectacular by itself and might require some other situations. You didn't discuss much "ifs" when compared to other staff applications but that really doesn't matter. You've been without doubt a good asset as a mentor and has the mindset to be helpful towards others. The technical part of being a mod is easy so some time as a tmod is enough to teach you the ropes. I could throw some additional questions but your answers wouldn't affect my decision.

    We've talked on Discord before and I know you're eager to get it done. Your answers are good with a few minor things that I'm sure we'll patch out in a trial, so you're definitely set.

    +1 from me.
