Position (I know you said staff is supposed to start as Jr. Mod but I would like to be a Dev on this server not just avergage staff):
How long have you been apart of the community?
I believe that I have been a member of this server for a month now? Not entirely sure how much time I have dedicated to this server but it has been well over 24 hours even if most of it was not just play time I have been working on the plugin that Beef requested that I make.
Tell us about yourself.
I have always been interested in computers and here about 3 years ago I started to get interested into programming, so I started to learn the programming language of Java overtime this interest grew into a hobby and I was having fun programming but I was having a hard time coming up with ideas. So I thought about one of my favorite games to play and figured why not learn to make plugins for Minecraft since I already knew the language that it is written in and since then I have uploaded 7 plugins to Spigot that in total have recieved around 150 downloads.
Tell us how active you will be and any set backs for this position you may have.
I am normally fairly active even if the time is not actually spent on the server you will normally find me either playing Minecraft or programming a new plugin or updating a previous one. And now that school is over I will be able to spend more time on the server than I normally would be able to do.
What is the reason you are applying for staff?
I have found that this server is fun and that the community is enjoyable and I want a way to get a little higher up in the development world.
What is your past experience with Minecraft staff teams? What qualifies you to apply?
I have been staff on a multitude of previous servers, many of these servers have long since shut down but never-the-less I have been:
In each of these positions I feel that I have helped the server out as much as I possibly could and I strived to be as close to standards as I could get.
What is your past experience with other leadership roles and/or projects?
I have been a leader of many group activities including robotics and some UIL events for my school in each of these events my team has made it fairly far considering how many people we compete against. In robotics we went to state and placed 11th in state out of over 1,000 other students, and in UIL I was the leader of our computer science team and we made it regionals I believe it was and placed fairly well there.
What sets you apart from others?
I have had a fair amount of experience programming in Java and am fairly level headed and handle many situations calmly.
These are not all of the plugins I have made and most all of my plugins are open source.
What is your Minecraft ign? wsman217
What is your Discord name? As many know seeing as I am active on the Discord my name is wsman217#4048
What position are you applying for? (Adding this because I am not looking to be a mod or anything)
I would like to apply for the developer position.
How long have you been apart of the server community? I joined this server about Wednesday 4/24 and since then I have a little over 7 hours of play-time on there that does not include the time spent in redstone test worlds testing farms or the time I have spent working on the referal plugin.
Tell us about yourself. (strengths, weaknesses, where you’re from, interesting things about your self.) Share as much or as little as you please. I am 16 years old and I have been studying Java for the past 2 years, during this time I have not really had a teacher to help me learn Java but I have managed to find many resources to learn it. I have just recently in the past year started to code minecraft plugins but I do feel that I have gotten the hang of it fairly well.
Tell us how active you will be and any set backs for this position you may have. (Job, School, Limited gaming time, etc.) As of now the only hinderance that I can see for the for-seeable future would be school seeing as I am in both high school and enrolled in dual credit courses. But even with this in mind I should be able to dedicate at least an hour a day to the server whether it is actual play time or developing plugins for it.
What is the reason you are applying for staff? I enjoy this server and would like to be part of the amazing staff team that I have met.
What is your past experience with Minecraft staff teams? What qualifies you to apply? I have been staff on a multitude of servers, the positions I have been at include mod, admin, developer, and owner. I have had lots of experience with setting up servers, managing them, and setting up plugins. I can read error messages figure out what is going wrong with a plugin and how to fix it fairly quickly.
What is your past experience with other leadership roles and/or projects? (any experiences including real life or video game related) I am part of a robotics team where I take the lead roll and we had gone to state for 2 years in a row till last year, I also as mentioned above have been admin and owner of a servers where I have had full access to the server.
What sets you apart from others? I know how to make a plugin, I know how many plugins work, if a plugin isn't what the server wants I can edit the plugin to be what we want, I am active in the community, and I enjoy the server which is very important because it means that I will be active.
