Lets Talk I'm going to preface this; Sorry to The Staff Team, I don't mean to offend in anything I say, nor do I mean to offend by the fact that I've prematurely applied, I'd like you to read what I have to say before you reject this, if not then after. I'm going to be writing this as if I was speaking to you formally, seriously, and directly, I think that is the best way to get my message across and to get things done. Obviously I did not come across as I wanted to in my previous application and I will attempt to rectify that. This turned out to be a long one, so if you want we can setup a time and I will read this to you out loud. I'd actually prefer that it be read that way so that my emotions can come across better, and you can ask for more details about what I'm saying. 1) What is your Minecraft username? My Minecraft username is "TheTrueMunchkin" I'm certain that you all know who I am at this point, and I will likely never change it, but just in case here is my NameMC page: https://namemc.com/profile/TheTrueMunchkin.1 2) What is your age and timezone (GMT format preferred)? I'm 17, My current timezone is MDT or GMT -6, like my name, I'm not planning on changing my timezone either. 3) How long have you played on our servers? I joined RC November 22nd, 2019, so it has been 7 months since I joined, now nearing 8. 4) In what ways have you helped people on the server? The Archive: During my time on atlas I have dedicated most of my efforts the the creation of The Great Archives of Ink, which is my public collection of artifacts, books, banners, and maps. The Archive is designed to help players obtain information and preserve things of historical value so they are not lost. In my work on The Archive I attempted to provide the lowest possible prices, paying for materials and setting aside money for when I need to purchase an item. In the past I have encouraged players to set up their own museums and public collections; I personally spoke with zoosemeus who owned a museum in Helsinki, I would help him identify unknown banners he had obtained and we would exchange items to further each-others' collections. Munchkin's Taskchamber: As many players are aware, there is a profound lack of content on the server; The overall population of both atlas and plots has been in a steady decline. Only last december we see could that during peak hours, atlas alone would consistently reach upwards of 70-80 players every day. With this lack of content I have been spending some of my most recent time creating games for members of the server to play. In early June I hosted a multi day competition where players would compete against each other for a prize of 1000g, the competition consisted of 5 different tasks where players would be whittled down until there was one winner. Later continuing that idea I created a test of willpower with another 1k prize, seeing who could persevere enough to win. More recently I have instituted a lesser known competition through which players must collect named books called "Quils." The players all start with one Quil, and must buy, or use their own connections to amass the most Quils. Though these are certainly projects for my own amusement, they help others too. It helps to quell the boredom that we have. It certainly takes work, and the only benefit is that people have fun. General Aid: When I help players I like to focus on the individuals. As it stands I am not the most helpful person on the server. I don't think that there is anyone on the server who consistently dedicates all their time to helping, though that seems like what I am expected to say, I cannot. When there are people who I know, and I know a fair bit, (I spoke individually with at least 60 people within the past 2 days for the competition alone,) I do try to help them where I can; Though that does not mean I am omnipotent, I can't be helping everyone at once and if I want to manage my competitions, endless lists of projects, and my archive, that isn't sustainable. But when someone like gaareth asks for stone for his build, I will donate. When players ask a question in chat, I will answer if I am free and if no one has already answered them. Even during the powder hunt I answered more than one person on where they could find certain powders since they were new to the server. I even spent some time (partially for my own amusement) guiding and playing powders like Stairway To Heaven for people who were climbing my tower so they wouldn't be mind-numbingly bored. We had good times, and I would hand out cake to people who made it to the top, or to people who I thought deserved an anniversary cake in general. Even then when I heard that very little had been planned I spent some time with gaareth brainstorming ideas, so that they could be relayed to you in the staff team directly instead of being ignored. That's how we came up with the idea of a Ruinscraft based resource pack, it's still broken and poorly made but at the very least I think that it was worth the effort. I am trying at the very least, when players ask in chat I am not always the one to answer but I do see what they are saying. When no one else answers I more than not try to help. When I am asked directly I will always try, and that's the best that I can say. Intermission: So this didn't fit within the 20000 character limit, I recommend you get up, stretch, and get some water before you read on. Seriously, like I said before, you can get me to read it for you, I'd really love to talk and practice my reading outloud.
