➤ What's your in-game name? Butchering, this won't change at all, my old IGN's are jayboymuir and _WhyTry, as well as Scottish_Deluxe. (ugly names I know). ➤ What is your age? My current age is 18, as of 8th of June 2017. ➤ What is your Discord? (Required) Butchering#7447 ➤ How long have you played the Minecart for? I had originally joined Mineslam back late 2015 and had joined the factions community. I had stayed around for the majority of 2016 since the new name change to Minecart and have been keeping tabs on the server since my original staff stint with the server where I was really looking into management, although now that management has changed and a new agenda has arisen I feel I could benefit the team immensely. ➤ What is your time zone? GMT+0, Scotland. ➤ How long can you spend online weekly? This will all depend on my college hours once I start although I can guarantee around 17-20 hours whether I can do more than that as I've said all depends on my hours at college. After working college hours during the day and only really being there 4 days a week, it could be said that more hours than this seems likely as well as doing overnight work for the team as I had done originally. I should also state that I do work as well, although this will not effect my activeness heavily whatsoever. ➤ What server do you spend the most time on? I spend most of my time on both factions and kitpvp as these are the game-modes that I really tend to thrive in, and what there seems to be less staff on as time continues. Although I'll occasionally play opprison my honest opinion of skyblock is that it has nothing to offer for me and hasn't had anything to offer for me since 2012. I grew extremely bored with no consequences to my playing time such as being raided. So I go on now and then to speak but I'd rather stick to the other 3 gamemodes. I'd mostly be on factions due to it being my playstyle and due to not as many staff being on there, hopefully with a new reset the community would expand and change their mind on the factions community. I'd also like to state I am also on KitPvP quite a lot of the time and with saying this I am quite situated within the KitPvP community in this server, and would wish for it to expand and flourish as the network expands. ➤ Why do you deserve staff on the Minecart? I want to change this to why do I want to become staff on the Minecart. The reason for this is that honestly I don't deserve anything, no one does, but what makes me different to other applicants? I've had experience before with most of the members in the team and would like to work with them again, I'm extremely active and I am very knowledgeable in the aspects of the servers that I tend to stick to. I'm very up-front and honest which can be seen as a downside I know, but if you need someone to tell you your doing something wrong without trying to bend around the bush, then I suppose that's the way I am. I'd say I'm pretty involved with the community and have a vast range of ideas of how to improve the server, which I have shown before and still have more under my belt. If given the second chance to become a Helper and possibly work my way up the ranks I'd do so with pleasure and honestly with my own delight, as coming back to the server after a few chats with people has brought my motivation back to do something good again, hopefully. I'm also very determined, the reasoning behind this is due to me just actually being quite competitive in aspect to allowing the server to be the best it can actually be. Finally I'd say I'm quite well known in the community so people don't really have a problem speaking with me about problems that may arise, if any. I'd also say I benefit the team as I can bring an extra edge which isn't looked into much when thinking of things not only server based, but player based, for example the longevity of a server is capable of upholding a lifespan between 4-7months and with players interests being drilled in with updates that I'd fight the right of the community wants, just as I had done originally as a staff member and as I continue to do as a player of the network. I believe I'm very well situated within the community itself and have a good relationship with them all. ➤ Will you spend time on the forums as well? I'm consistently on the forums, proof of this is just the amount of posts I have over a range of threads and topics and even in my time where I had no PC, I was still active with my phone and will still continue to be, as I actually quite enjoy getting involved with events, conversations and getting to know what the community is up to. Whilst this being said, I have now been back for around a month, and my activity has stayed to the same high quality as my time without a pc did, showing how I take the forums quite seriously as I know this is tool needed to contact both other staff, management, and players alike. ➤ In what ways will you benefit our staff team? I feel like I could benefit the staff team by bringing experience and new ideas to the table as with the management and all the new staff members I feel I could fit in and try help out in any way possible. I'm also able to share my advanced knowledge on gamemodes such as factions as it's what I've been predominately playing for a long time. I'm also fairly older and may have a more mature manner around the team, not to take that to a next level as I don't see the team as immature but I feel my experience sort of just has me up there as I've been on both sides of the table from being away from staff for quite some time, Feb if I remember. I've seen from a player and a staff members perspective on how to try and help achieve in bringing the server back to life like the management in my opinion are currently doing. I also believe I'd help the team by bringing a new way of seeing things to the table, if not many of you know I'm quite creative, I'd say, when coming to making new things, getting people involved and such, so I feel I could benefit in this way to really be involved with both the community and the staff together. I'd also say I would benefit the team with my endless creativity when it comes to new ideas for the server, although admittedly not able to code or work naturally with any server plugins, if plausible some ideas I have could benefit not only the staff team but the server, as well as the community. ➤ In what ways will you be able to benefit our community? Quite a few areas by giving them a new face to be able to know and get used to, if I'm allowed to host events I will be hopefully helping Dan with that as I've ran quite a few before my original time as staff. I also feel I can give the community a new view on the server and see how it can prosper if we all work together to make it actually work, because I believe in what the management are doing and again, I'd like to be a part of the next phase of Minecart. I feel like the community may benefit from an old face coming back that has seen a new side of the server that maybe hadn't been seen before and hope I can spread that with the people on the server. I'd also somewhat state within the community I was one of the people that was more known within the factions server, as well as the kitpvp server, but my time as staff did encourage me to meet the rest of the servers community, with that I did and made connections within each server based on my original stint. I'm quite open in terms of what has to be done and tend to do things by the book, I see bias and such as a hinderance to the team and would not like to become someone that does that to a team that seems to want to become prestige. ➤ Anything else you want to say? Yes actually, if some are wondering why I am applying, it's just due to an interest after speaking to some people about the game, after I had quit the game for a while and got my head around what I want to do, I've basically got accepted to college and need something to do at home that can benefit my translating skills as well as dealing with people in general, and this is why I've applied for this place again. Also if anyone has anything they feel could benefit towards increasing the likelihood of being accepted please do give me feedback. ➤ Do you agree lying on this will lead to an instant-rejection? Yes I agree.
