14. Describe a time when you lost control of your emotions and how you were able to cope with the situation (P.S: This can be about anything; it doesn't have to be from in-game.):
When my grandfather passed away, it was a real eye opener for my family and I. I would often draw or write in a journal when I would think about him.


15. What do you consider in your personality to be strengths? What do you consider in your personality to be weaknesses?
Creativity is one of my strengths, and I sometimes get distracted would be one of my weaknesses.


16. Assess these attributes from 1 to 10 based on how you see yourself:

  • Creative: 10
  • Polite: 8
  • Reasonable: 7
  • Objective: 5
  • Perceptive: 7
  • Compassionate: 8
  • Troubleshooter: 6
  • Honest: 10

17. After you become an admin, how would you react to these situations below:
A: How would you deal with a person who was making racist comments?
Ask them to kindly stop,and if they don't give them a warning or two. If they continue, temporarily mute them.


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 ask the person who made the remarks why they were doing that, and give them a warning. If they do not stop it may result in a temp mute.


C: How would you deal with players who micspam?
I would give them warnings, before muting them and telling them not to do it again.


D: Another TF2SS admin is exploiting their powers in game; what will you do about it?
Possibly record the evidence, and send it to higher ups, as giving another admin warnings may not do much.


E: What would you do when answering a report that [username] is speed hacking on one of our servers?
Spectate the user to verify they are indeed hacking, and if they are hacking, and report it to valve. Confront them, and temporarily ban them.


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?
Warn them to stop falsely saying they are an admin, and to remind them to stop exhibiting toxic behavior. If they don't stop kick them.


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?
Ask them to stop, warn them, buy godmode through the shop to combat them.


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?
They may not take the warning seriously but warn them, and possibly mute them temporarily.


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 them to stop trying to exploit the credits/falsely saying they are admin, kick them and possibly ban


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?
As both perks can be bought from the shop, the Headless Horsemann player would have to deal with the fact their credits are gone, as the person who slayed them did not do anything wrong. If they continue to complain, possibly mute them.


K: How do you define Admin abuse?
Abusing the privileges granted to the admins, in order to exploit or employ malicious behavior in such a way that violates server rules, or for personal pleasure.


After filling out this application, what are your feelings toward becoming a Server Admin on our servers?
I hope that I can make some people's experience on the SwapShop servers better by making the servers a safe and troll free place where everyone can have fun.

When you say "Troll" what do you mean by this?

And with your temporary mutes, what would you do after the muted are over and done with?

When I say troll I mean A person who purposefully employs disruptive or malicious behavior online, with the specific purpose of causing grief or irritation to a server or specific person. After the mutes expire, If the said individual continues with the disruptive behavior, a permanent mute may occur.

Quote from: Game experience involving you
You: "f****** get out of here. you know you can get banned for that right?"
Other Player: just nodded
You: "can you leave Other Player? you're making me and my boyfriend uncomfortable."
Other Player: "what am I doing wrong?"
You: "your loadout is making us uncomfortable."
Other Player: "it's just a loadout."
You: "yeah true but still."






Why should you be an administrator if something as simple as a loadout "triggers" you? Being an administrator means you have to have a thick skin. If you claim you were just joking you would be against your own words of wanting to prevent "trolls" and their behavior, however if you claim it to instead be honest you don't have the thick enough skin needed for this position. Either way, you don't seem to be a good fit for this position.

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 (02-18-20).

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