    1) What is your Minecraft username?

    My IGN is WizardBard and I have not changed it in the past.

    2) What is your age and timezone (GMT format preferred)?

    My age is 16, almost 17, and im in GMT -5:00 (Eastern Standard Time)

    3) How long have you played on our servers?

    I have played mcatlas for about 6 months and I have been playing most of that time with small breaks in September and October. Mainly on MCAtlas but I have played a while on MCPlots too.

    4) In what ways have you helped people on the server?

    One way I have helped is simply getting people used to the game, if they join my town I usually welcome them to the server and teach them what they need to know as well as provide them with items they can use to get started with.

    Another way I have helped people is reminding people of commands, if someone asks something in the chat, I am more than happy to answer it correctly, in addition to this I have seen many players in need saying they cant find gold at where they are mining, in this situation I usually point them in the right direction by telling them gold deposits are similar to real life locations, its something simple but it sure can save them a bunch of time.

    Another thing is teaching them about the Mcmmo plugin which is something a lot of players are not aware of how it works and often wonder why they get items such as glowstone from dirt, by educating them in how to grind things it encourages them to have another goal on the server and find it more enjoyable.

    5) In what ways would you improve the server?

    The first way I would improve the server is push for a starter book which contains all the information a player needs without having them go to the wiki page which some players simply dont enjoy reading, the reason a book would be more efficient is because its fast and would instantly introduce the player to the server and how they can play it, I have mentioned this idea in the past, and im sure its not too hard to make it a reality as it would save time of experienced players telling them how to play, it would also be great if the book was in a few popular languages as the server is not all fluent in English.

    This next idea is for both MCPlots and MCAtlas, it would be the ability to flip Iron Trapdoors without needing redstone to do so, I know a few people might think its a pointless thing to add however as someone who builds a lot on both Plots and MCAtlas its a great feature that would open up many options for building, especially if they build in a more modern architecture. And once again it is a small feature but it can be used in many different ways and lets a players creativity explore his building abilities a lot more.

    Another thing I would love to see added to MCAtlas is the ability for everyone to use /inspect, the reason for this is because if I see a minor grief for example in my town, I do not like to waste the Admins/Mods time over something so little, It would be great if I just knew who did it fast and efficiently, now this could be used to report people similar to how Plots has it or to check a few things around town, I have seen this around on a few servers and it works just fine, as long as the inspect tool is not something like a bedrock, im sure this idea would decrease the amount of things staff have to deal with on a daily basis. If this is impossible or too risky to do for every player atleast give this ability to Helpers just so more people can find out grief information quicker and potentially foward evidence to moderators or admins via Discord.

    6) Do you have any previous experience as staff on any other server?

    I do have a fair amount of experience on a few smaller servers with small daily playercounts, its nothing huge however throughout that time I educated myself on the skills a staff member needs, it often requires patience and it is something I can deal with, I also know that from this that im a fast learner and can adjust my skill of commands in different situations.

    7) Why should we choose you over anyone else?

    The first reason I think I should be staff is because of my playtime on the server, I know the community very well over my 6 months of playing and have had a good contribution with hosting a few game events for people to enjoy, they usually go well and it consolidates that I am a person who has good organisation skills when it comes to dealing with events.
    Another thing is my ability to teach, In my towns of Stalone and Nova_Britannia, I have recruited dozens of people to the town since my time starting, each player who joins gets introduced to how they can play the server in good depth, commands, tips that saves a lot of time and many other things. In my time recruiting I have had tons of experience with many players from various ages and languages, I know how to deal with younger players who often struggle with commands and often need more support than the average player, I do this job quite well in my town and I am sure I can transfer this to the role of a Helper.

    In addition to the question I am also in North America, and its also the area which lacks in staff, for example when the bot attacks happened it took a long time for staff to respond as it was still very early for European staff. Furthermore I am also proficient in 2 languages, Spanish and English. I am good with communicating with people and im sure that regardless of language I could find a way around it to help the person in need.
    In my time playing I have also got to learn that there is a lot of toxicity at times and often players unhappy with one another which causes arguments and drama in chat, as a helper I would detect these kind of situations and attempt to solve what is between them even it involves a large amount of my time and effort to do so, many players get into arguments at times and with good moderation I think I could decrease the frequency of it happening.
    As a final say, im an extremely dedicated player, my playtime and activity would surely benefit the community as when needed Im always willing to improve and learn new things to progress my ability in helping players of MCAtlas and MCPlots.

    Let me know what you think of my application and me as a player, im always up for improving :)

    Love how the idea part is just kami’s... but that reminds me lmao why has none of the things Kami pushed for in his application actually happened. I feel like this is a reoccurring thing with staff applications. @kamiheartlemon

    nothing ever happens with them, theyre supposed to show how creative you are. maybe if admins actually listened to us about what we wanted the sever wouldn't be stale, grindy, have inactive staff, and actually show some love to a server that hasnt had a unique update for a long time (end is vanilla feature, so it isnt original even though the way you get there is different)

    That’s so stupid why would they want to know how creative you are if they aren’t gonna add anything in the first place, kami had some good ideas like the iron trapdoor I don’t see why they don’t listen to those ideas

    I support this app.
    WizardBard is a good writer and thinks about things well.
    I like the ideas, especially the starter book for new players and the ability to flip trap doors.
    Using /inspect could help save staff time and would put people off offending in the first place.

    What do you mean?
    Do you think I copied my comment from there (as you are replying to me) or do you think that Wizard has copied Kami's app?

    If you look on kamis app you would see that wizard copied the ideas section almost verbatim

    Because it looks like a serious app, and it takes time and trouble for someone to put up an app. I do know of course that some people will place joke apps tho.

    Okay, but if it's a joke, why is it not funny or silly?

    That’s not what I’m saying when I say joke app, it’s not supposed to be taken seriously. Wizard has been messing around on the forums for the past few months. If you actually played the server you would know that he hasn’t been active in like 5-6 months.

    Yeah, I do know what h has been doing. You're not that observant either tho. I have been playing the server, just not very active. When I was on, I even saw him on there, so he does play too.

    Maybe you should consider not being so mean to people.
