  3. Name: Sam Accardo Age: 16 (turn 17 in 4 days) SteamID: http://steamcommunity.com/id/templ0/ How long have you been apart of Ordinary Gaming?: around a week (joined from this lol http://youtu.be/QBnJdUA3efw ) What is your Timezone?: Australian Eastern Standard Time Why do you want to join the Support Team? (75 Word Minimum): I would like to join the support team because it is a easy yet semi fun job, I want to join because I would like to help out the staff team when it comes to people requesting support, I find the support team an easy job because of the number of communities I have been apart of staff/support. Another reason I would like to join this communities support team is because it helps me meet new people, ex. I was apart of a gang on a old server when the warriors were around and I wanted to join them, but I didnt have the balls to but nowdays I speak to people that used to be apart of older communities. Another reason I want to join support is because I'd like to work my ways up to the staff team and hopefully end up as a moderator / administrator. Why should we accept you over other applicants? (75 Word Minimum): I should be accepted over other people applying for support due to the fact that I have been in plenty of communities and I have a ton of experience with doing Civilian Interviews and helping people out, I'm also in a timezone where there isnt much people on from 7pm+ and I've seen people waiting for support but no one is on to help, so I usually would PM them asking them what they need. Im also dedicated to my work so if someone was having trouble and I couldnt solve it I wouldnt just drag them out the channel I would go out of my ways to help them. (If its something that I dont have the power to do such as admin work etc I would drag the to waiting for administrator. What special skills can you bring to our Support Team? (75 Word Minimum): I can bring skills that some other people dont have, I can bring respect, loyalty and honesty. If I mess up I would be honest about it and try to bullshit my way out of it. Secondly I can bring respect to other people and myself, there is times where I joke around and like to have a good time (who doesnt?), but I know when to be serious and stop dicking around. Lastly I am a pretty loyal person, if I join put my time into a community it pretty much means I like it and I wont go and shit talk staff behind there back. I can also bring a helping hand to the community How much time will you spend doing your duties as Support Team?: Its summer holidays in Australia so depending on outside activities I can do 1-5+ everyday Do you promise you will treat every member with respect and help anyone who needs it?: Yes Any extra information you'd like to add?: @John Reddington we should do the hostage boogy again. xd

  6. Name:Samuel Savage Date of Birth and Age:20/2/2000 16 What is your time zone?:gmt How long have you been a member of Ordinary Gaming?2 days Why do you want to join the staff team?(100 words min):I want to join the staff team because I want to help make Ordinary Gaming the best community out there. I can see alot great things coming to this server and i want to be a part of these changes. I also want to make people follow the rules and not say "stop or die" and get away with it. I want to help the people enjoy the server to its fullest because that what this community deserves as all the staff and developers have worked their asses off to get the server to where it is now. What makes you stand out above all other applicants?(100 words min):The thing is makes me stand out more than any other applicants is my ability to work and meet in the middle with someone but if they don't want to meet me in the middle I'll give them more time than others. I can also make very difficult decesions as i have been staff on other communities and have made these decisions before. Theses are what makes me stand out more than any other applicant. What special skills can you bring to our staff team?(100 words min):The special skills that I can to the staff team are i'm patient and take my time to review everything to the little details to see some done something wrong. From past expeirnce as a moderator and admin for for a short time at another community I have found this skill to be my best one in most cases. Another skill I can bring to the staff team is the fact I know nearly every excuse in the book for rule breaks and can tell when their lying to me as I have used nearly everyone in the book or have been told them by others. One other one thats important is the fact I can follow orders from high ranking staff team and follow them well. Have you ever been banned or receiving WP in the past? If so why?:no How active are you daily?:all day Do you understand that being a staff member is a voluntary position and that you need to have patience and maturity. It also requires you to be unbiased and mature?:Yes Do you also understand as a staff member you need to balance your activity in staff and in game?:Yes AGREEMENT: I, Samuel Savage understand that if i'm accepted into the staff member that i'm to be held to a higher standard than other players and that I must display professionalism at all times. I also understand that being apart of the staff team is a voluntary position.

  7. Name: Anthony Winters Date of Birth and Age: 12/08/1999 and 17 yrs old What is your time zone?: CST How long have you been a member of Ordinary Gaming? Today, but come from a place many of you came from Why do you want to join the staff team?(100 words min): I want to join the staff team to be part of something growing. By far I am noticing a lot Of changes. And I want to be part of those changes. What better way to do it than here. I would love the opportunity to support the community into growing to something greater. And hopefully beginning a new “career” here. I want to discipline those who don't follow the rules and really promote roleplay unlike many other communities. I also enjoy helping and reasoning with people. To get on their level and understand their reasoning behind their actions. I would enjoy to be know as a staff member that is understandable and not stuck up. What makes you stand out above all other applicants?(100 words min): My ability to work with people stands out more than any other person that applies. As a command member in the JCSO (in another community). I am faced with many difficult decisions, but making the right decision. But this type of work doesn't revolve around laws, but SOP’s I'm sure. Working with others and getting to everyone else's side of stories. And then go based off of what they say. I think that this is the thing that stands out above all other applicants. And possibly (hopefully) Something you can benefit from. Again, I want to be known as a kind and respectful staff member. What special skills can you bring to our staff team?(100 words min): my skills can be broken up into 3 categories. Professionalism, kindness, and dedication. As a command member in the SO in another community, I strive to be extremely professional. And to keep everything in order in the most organized and professional way possible. Eliminating arguments, joking, etc. in serious business. My kindness will lead me to sitting down for hours with issues someone has. And regardless if you're being disrespectful to me I perform my duties without hate. Something many communities lack that type of characteristic. My dedication also will propel many people to succeed and greatly lift weight off of others shoulders. And a great benefit to you. I put time and effort into many things to help you. And many appreciate it. Have you ever been banned or receiving WP in the past? If so why?: Nope How active are you daily?: Everyday Do you understand that being a staff member is a voluntary position and that you need to have patience and maturity. It also requires you to be unbiased and mature?: Yes Do you also understand as a staff member you need to balance your activity in staff and in game?: Yes AGREEMENT: I, [Anthony Winters] understand that if i'm accepted into the staff member that i'm to be held to a higher standard than other players and that I must display professionalism at all times. I also understand that being apart of the staff team is a voluntary position.

  22. For new players to RP Servers this will explain some simple rule breaks that WILL result in bans. OOC - Out of Character - Referring to outside of game situations. You are NOT to go OOC during RP situations or any point in-time. (Example: " I will be reporting you" / "I have this on video" / "This is a green zone you cannot rob me here") NVL - Not Valuing Life - Having no concern for your life. (Examples: Running away from someone who has a gun drawn towards you or drawing a weapon while someone already has one out threatening you.) GZV - Green Zone Violation - Breaking rules in a green zone. Green zones are sought as safe havens you cannot start a hostile RP situation within a green zone. (Examples: Robbing/Killing a player in a green zone when the RP wasn't carried over from outside the green zone.) Though this does not apply if someone initiates themselves by verbal hostility (excessive trash talking in the green zone) FAILRP - Failure to Role Play - Failure to role play can apply to multiple situation such as RDM, refusing to RP in the situation, not vocally presenting yourself to a situation or initiating yourself. When initiating yourself verbally you must give the person time to react to what you've said. Example (( "Put your hands on your head this is a robbery" You must give them at least 5 seconds to comply before knocking them out.)) NLR - New Life Rule - When killed, you cannot remember what happened that lead to your death such as the person, clothes, gang, voice, vehicle, etc. You may only remember what happened vaguely for medical reasons, or, if arrested, you remember all events leading to your death. Metagaming - Gaining Knowledge by outside sources. (Examples: Stream Sniping, 3rd person chat services, steam messaging, etc) This also includes using your phone or using the name above the character to get their name. They must tell you their name for you to know it. Power Gaming - Power Gaming Is creating/using items/actions that do not actually exist to assist you (Choking/tying legs/tackling/stabbing another player when the mechanics do NOT exist in-game.) Exploiting - Exploiting is the act of abusing unintended mechanics (Picking up weapons or items while tied/restrained/macro pushing vehicles/hiding in walls that you are able to walk through, but should not be able to) Combat Logging - Disconnecting from an RP situation purposely (ALT-F4ing or force quitting the game to avoid losing gear when killed, avoid being arrested by police once revived if killed, avoid RP situations by disconnecting, etc.)
