    Basic Questions & Story

    What do you think is the job of a Commander?
    The Captain is a role with ultimate authority that settles disputes and organizes the ship's personal for a singular objective and lets the staff below him in the command chain thrive on that objective and micromanage the smaller aspects of the ship's personal below them and allows the base of which roleplay is founded on.

    Why do you want to be a Commanding Officer?
    As a position as a Senior moderator and a Previous CO whitelist obtainer. I Would like to have the ability to take command as a CO in low pop rounds not as a Pvt ++ CO. From my experience Captains are more listened to then a SEA with no people on with the rank LT and above.

    Provide a short story of your Commanding Officer.

    How familiar are you with command positions?
    Very familiar and experienced

    Approximately how many hours do you have as Executive Officer (XO) at the time of writing this application?
    A year worth on and off so about 105 hours at the least

    How familiar are you with Department Head positions?
    I have played every Role besides queen since my time starting here in 2015 and am capable of playing them.

    How familiar are you with Marine Law and Standard Operating Procedure?
    I am very Experienced and familiar with ML and SOP


    When do you believe a Battlefield Execution should be used?
    I view Battlefield Execution as a way to remove someone who has no regard for orders to the extent that they are either slowing progress on the operation or putting the whole operation at risk of immanent Failure The difference between both the execution mechanic and regular is the Battle execution is non-formal and used if only if there is a threat to the operation or other lives and is extra-jurisdictional and fast, skipping all the administrative actions, while the other is formal for people who are not at risk of ending lives are the operation.

    Under what circumstances do you believe it is legal to pardon a prisoner?
    It is legal to pardon major and minor crimes but I would refrain on doing them to often without perfect valid reason.

    When I still was in my Prime as CO I used to use Advance Flanks on LV Depending on the situation especially doing Faint Retreats and sending half the marines to Engineering and squeeze the Xenos and trap them in nexus. Now for Big red, I used to deploy in LZ2 and do a sweep to Filtration and do a tactical push with Cas and OB's.

    I'm a fan of people doing dossiers for their characters, though yours doesn't fully display a complete understanding of military rank to me. You essentially go West Point Academy -> Uuuh he is an XO now -> Captain literally falls off his chair and dies, he is now a Captain. Not to mention that a Captain at 27 years is not feasible. I do like dossiers but yours has noticeable, obvious shortcomings in this regard.

    That aside, you didn't really answer the Pardon question at all? You're asked in what circumstances you would find a pardon suitable. You say you can't pardon for capital crimes which... yes, correct, but please give us actual, concrete examples of what sort of things you would pardon for and also NOT pardon for.

    A very reputable player who will not abuse or violate their WL guidelines or rules, I can easily vouch that I have never seen anything malicious from this player. They stay in character and take things seriously, I think it'd be a good (re)addition to lowpop CO pool.

    I'm sorry, but despite you being a returning person from CO, the Council has seen next to no XO/command playtime from you recently. As a result we can't verify whether or not you're actually up to par in the current climate of things.

    I understand you're busy nowadays, but the application requirements still apply to returning COs. This is so we can determine if you are still capable of commanding in the current day.

    You can reapply, but bear in mind the next time to do so you should play XO often both before and during your application being up.

    But with a -3/5 majority vote from the council, I'm afraid this app is denied. You can reapply in 30 days.
