1. What is your Minecraft Username? SplayBlowfish 2. What is your timezone and age? my timezone is gmt +0 or +1 (depending on what time of year it is) and i am 17 3. How long have you played here on Ruinscraft? around 8 months 4. In what ways have you helped people on the server? when i first joined the server in December just after making the move from bedrock edition to java i barely knew how to work the controls let alone understand the towney commands like /t spawn but peoples generosity on the server helped me to understand the game, something which i try to do on the server today to help other people (although i can be a bit quiet in general chat sometimes). i also was the main person who overhauled the UN discord to turn it into a place where nations could communicate and help each other. i also headed the community effort for building the Scandinavian parliament building which was somewhere the different towns in the nation could meet and communicate (although it never got used due to the nation merging with another. i also strive to keep the economy healthy on the server and for more trading of recourses on the server by buying in most of the materials used in my town and always giving a fair price for them. 5. in what ways would you improve the server? firstly i would like to see a way for peoples warnings to be removed after a certain amount of time so that they don't end up with a large amount of them which can confuse players for why they have not seen any punishment for all these warnings. another thing i would like to see is on the dynamap after 30 minutes of the portal being spawned it highlights an area of where the portal is somewhere inside of it because by then portal coordinates have already been leaked and if it hasn't been found it gives the players a little helping hand. another thing i would like to see something i call "allied nation chat" which is basically if two nations are allied on the server one nation owner could send a request to open a chat to the other nation owner which they can either accept or deny then players from both nations can communicate with each other. 6. Do you have any previous experience as staff on any other server? I'm going to be honest i don't have much experience being staff other than holding some high up places on some discord servers as well as in previous nations and the current nation i am in now. 7. Why should we choose you over anyone else? well firstly from being a player who has been on the server for a decent amount of time i have a good relationship with some of the older players on the server and also the new players on the server. i also have a good relationship with lots of the players in Europe on the server from me spending a lot of time there on the server and also becoming one of the 3 European representatives for the League of Nations which players had to vote representatives in. i also have a good relation with places all over the world on the server through the UN meetings and talking to players on the server i may never have had. i have also always tried to be kind to anyone and everyone in my 8 months on the server (even if they have not been towards me) and i always try to better myself. now i'm going to be honest these a things i think make me qualified for the role even if i don't know if i am worthy for being a staff member or others think i am but that is the reason for applying for something. Thankyou for reading my application.
