17. After you become an admin, how would you react to these situations below:

I would warn, then if continues, mute.



B: A group of players are offended by remarks that another player made, but you yourself do not find them to be offensive. How would you respond?
I would warn, then if continues, mute. The other player's thoughts are what matters.



C: How would you deal with players who micspam?
Warn, then if continues, mute.



D: Another TF2SS admin is exploiting their powers in game; what will you do about it?
Tell one of the higher ranked Admins.



E: What would you do when answering a report that [username] is speed hacking on one of our servers?
Go incognito, check the user through spectate, maybe get another Admin to look for clarification, recorded if needed, then ban if appropriate.



F: A regular user threatens to ban another player if they do not comply with rules that do not exist. What will you do about it?
Tell everyone involved that the rule does not exist and offer a warning to the player making the claims.



G: A group of enemy players dominate you, ignoring everyone else and changing teams if you join the team they are on, killing only you over and over again. What will you do about it?
Either kill them back, buy god mode from the shop, or just leave.



H: How do you deal with a player who comments publicly that: you are an asshole, the server sucks ass, and continues to insult anyone who kills them with profanity & by screaming on the mic?
Warn them for mic spamming, mute them if needed. The screaming part I would interpret as micspam, not the rest of the actions given.



I: A regular player on our server says that they will offer free godmode for anyone who trades a hat to them. What will you do about it?
Tell everyone that they can not do that. If someone falls for their scam, then It's their loss, but I tried to warn them.



J: A player who bought the Headless Horsemann perk from the shop complains after another player slays him/her. What do you tell the slayed Headless Horsemann player?
Too bad, too sad. They are allowed to do that.



K: How do you define Admin abuse?
Abusing powers like godmode, noclip, and banning falsely to get a gain from everyone else.



After filling out this application, what are your feelings toward becoming a Server Admin on our servers?
I can't wait to come back. Thank you.

Easy. Maturity.
I’ve gotten more mature with handeling situations, and the issues I had previously were childish and I believe I’ve overcome those issues of mine.

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 (February 24, 2019).

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