Weaknesses: ARACHNOPHOBIA ;-;

Arachnophobia isn't much of a weakness when it comes to a game community. Is there anything else you can think of as a major weakness that might affect your thinking and focusing skills?

Now that I spent some time thinking about it, my weakness would most definitely be being under pressure in a decision.

Being an administrator is a position that requires decision making often, whether your own initiative or with a group of other admins. Considering you feel pressured (presumably to the extreme, you didn't specify) when it comes to making decisions, how do you relieve yourself from the stress you get when making decisions?

Well relaxing for me has always been a thing I'm good at, I don't really have any specific way of relieving myself of stress. I pretty just don't dwell on a stress causing subject to much, I really just don't think about then eventually I forget.

Thank you for taking the time to apply for TF2SwapShop administration. We regret to inform you that our staff does not believe that your application satisfies our standards for server administration for the moment. Unfortunately, we must decline your application.

If you are still interested in a server administration position here, you may submit a new application and reapply after 3 months have passed (1/11/18).

We encourage you to use that time to revise and improve upon your application.
