    Who gave you permission to apply?:

    The community is currently looking for Admins on #05 VS Saxton Hale according to this thread.

    Steam2 ID:

    STEAM_0:0:58833059

    Online Times and timezone:
    Timezone is GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), UTC +0 as I live in London. Right now I am obviously a student and for the next 3 months I have a summer break. Therefore I will be on everyday (apart from a holiday) from about 11:00 in the morning until 01:00 at night. I will not be playing all of this time but I will be "online" so I can be ready to play if I am required to (to respond to a !call etc.). I usually play about 5 hours a day anyway when I am on a break from school. When school starts again, I will be online from 16:00 until 22:00. On the weekends I will be on from 11:00 in the morning to 01:00 at night (22:00 on Sunday).

    Do you have a Microphone?:
    Yes, however I use it rarely and would use chat over voice when issuing warnings etc. This is mainly because it is easier and quicker to use but also it stays in the chat for a few seconds so everyone can see it and read it.

    Previous experience in Admin/Mod:
    I have never fully been an Admin on a community however I am an Admin on one of my friends servers (small server) and I like to watch the way admins such as Danny and Iceviet do their job on the #05 Saxton Hale server.

    What Panda Community servers do you usually play on and wish to apply for?:

    #05 VS Saxton Hale is the main server I play on and therefore only wish to apply for admin for that server. I rarely play on other servers in the Panda Community.

    Would you visit a broader range of servers in case of a report?:

    If there is a report on a different server e.g Dodgeball I will take any action on the report other than @-ing that server's Admin so that they can deal with it unless it is deemed unnecessary. This is because I do not know the rules on the other servers and I am only applying for the #O5 VS Saxton Hale server. However, if the player is obviously hacking then I would go to the server, and permanently ban them (I realise I cannot do this as a trial admin).

    Do you have experience with administrating with SourceMod?:
    I have very small experience using SourceMod as I only know the basic commands through my friend's server therefore I would need to learn the "ins and outs" of it.


    Why should we choose you?:
    Firstly, the Panda community is my favourite community I have played on since I started playing computer games (5+ years). Therefore if I am accepted as an Admin it would allow me to get more involved in the community and everyone in it which I would love. Also, I would really like to have a sense of responsibility in the community and being Admin would allow that. If I was to get accepted, it would be beneficial to the welfare of the community because through my experience of playing nearly 15 days on the server, there is a lot of toxicity, trolling, abusing etc so as an Admin I would deal with these issues. Over the past 2 months or so, I have been trying to keep the server clean and rule abiding by reinforcing the rules when needed and setting a good example by keeping a good chat log (e.g no spam, no excessive use of CAPS). However I obviously couldn't punish the people that kept on breaking the rules as I did not have the power to. I have posted some player reports but I couldn't post reports of the people insulting in voice as they are not recorded like chat logs. Don't get me wrong, the Admins on the Saxton Hale server are amazing at their jobs but they have lives so Admins aren't monitoring the server 24/7. I have noticed that I am on the server a lot of the time when the Admins are not therefore I would be beneficial to the server, warning and appropriately punishing the rule breakers that are not seen by the other Admins. I am a friendly guy and as a result I have gained a lot of friends on the server (and users and Admins in the Panda Community) and I like to see myself as a role model to the new users. When I see someone breaking the rules, I either post a player report or !call an admin. I usually post player reports if an Admin hasn't come because I like taking the responsibility of reporting the player.

    What will you do as Admin?:


    For the majority of my actions, I would give a verbal/chat warning first (unless it is hacking) due to the following post, and also it is fair: https://www.panda-community.com/threads/a-warning-before-punishement.11493/page-2
    note: these could all change slightly depending on the severity of the action

    Profile Rules Broken
    This includes offensive names, admin impersonation and inappropriate content. Firstly, they would get a warning so that they know they are breaking the rules and to tell them to stop. If they ignore this warning, I would give a 12 hour ban. After this, the ban would be 1 week. Then a permanent ban.

    Communication Rules Broken
    This includes insulting, foreign languages, advertising, admin impersonation (punishments will be more severe) and spam. I would give 1 warning first. Then followed by a 4 hour gag/mute depending on how they have broken the rules. If they keep on breaking the same rules, I will give a 1 day mute/gag. After this, depending on the severity, I would give a 1 week or 1 month mute/gag. Then a permanent.

    Rules of Play Rules Broken
    This includes hacking (permanent ban), exploiting, abuse of !call and avoiding punishment. Firstly, they will get a warning as usual. Second, 1 day ban. Then 1 week or 1 month depending on the severity. After this, a permanent ban.


    Server Specific Rules Broken
    This includes ghosting, teaming, camping as Hale, wasting time and AFK's. Each of these are different. Ghosting: will receive a warning, then a gag/mute for 240 minutes if they carry on once as it can be a game-deciding action. After this, 1 day, then a week mute/gag. Then permanent. Teaming: warning, another warning, slay both. If I see them doing it again they will be banned for 1 week as they have basically had 3 warnings. Then 1 month, then permanent. Camping as Hale or time wasters: warning, toggle timebomb, if they stop I will untoggle timebomb otherwise, let them die. If they do it again, 2 days ban. Then 2 weeks. Then permanent. AFK's: I will slap the AFK. If they do not come back to their keyboard after 20 seconds, I will kick them. No further punishments if they do it again.

    Note: For more severe actions like hacking, and severe admin impersonation I will provide video evidence.

    Bans: https://bans.panda-community.com/index.php?p=banlist&advSearch=STEAM_0:0:58833059&advType=steamid

    3 bans on record. Last was 2 months 9 days ago. (1 was removed so technically 2)

    About the admin impersonating ban:
    (this is not me protesting against the ban in any way)
    This will obviously effect my chances of becoming admin but I wish to add this:
    My actions that caused me to get the ban were considered as Admin Impersonation due to Rule 1b: Admin impersonation
    Any name that is the same as or deemed too similar to an admin’s, or use of a fake [Admin] tag, is strictly forbidden.
    Now, I agree that I should have been banned for admin impersonation, but this was not my intent and I was not actually pretending to be the admin, just copied the profile picture and similar names.

    Gags/mutes: https://bans.panda-community.com/index.php?p=commslist&advSearch=STEAM_0:0:58833059&advType=steamid

    Last was 1 months 27 days ago.

    I have certainly improved on my chat logs since these gags. They were the result of me not applying for admin earlier as I wanted to show that I was different from that.

    Thankyou VERY much for reading my application (I know it was quite long). I look forward to seeing your responses. Feedback and helpful criticism will be appreciated.

    Very nice application!
    So much effort in information, punishments, and sessions! I Recommend this guy!
    Bans: reasons are not looking good.

    Edit: on my opinion +1

    The applicant meets the requirements.
    Sessions are good.
    Clean chat. Enforcing rules as well.
    The punishments look a bit to harsh, in my opinion, but it can be tinkered with.

    The only downturn I see, is your behaviour among your friends, which resulted in the two bans, namely the admin impersonation and the evasion of the punishment.

    I have changed from then, and I know not to mess around and push the boundaries now. I received the punishment and in turn, I have learnt my lesson. I hope you have seen by playing with me recently that I have been behaving well and not messing around even with friends and reinforcing the rules. I also know that I cant react to situations differently if it is my friends. For example I will still apply bans/mutes/gags to them if necessary.

    I can reduce the severity of my punishments if you and others think it is needed.

    Punishments are a bit severe, though I'm sure chaz will be happy to make them slightly better.

    Lots of playtime, good chat, good sessions, wonderfully long, detailed and clean application.

    Usually, the 4th ban isn't permanent,you can't perma ban to start with as a trial and you can't decide whether it will be anyway, it's up to the Full admins (unless it's a hacker).

    I will be sure to make my punishments less severe.
    Shall I edit the application or just take my word?

    Ive been playing a lot on the VSH server, and I'm a really good friend of Chaz. Often when we play together, so much weird stuff happends and we !call for an Admin. Sometimes they come and help, but not all the time. If the server gets more admins, less bullshit on server. And with this high playtime this problem would be solved pretty well.
    I hope he gets accepted so the server will keep beeing what it is and not changig in to a mess with insulting players or mic spammers.

    I see chaz on the server frequently, uses call often and generally helps enforce the rules. Server could use some more admins to cut down on the number of AFK Hales. Recommendation from me

    welp, btw to add something the 1-week ban that was caused by the name and profile changing was mainly my fault cuz I said it as a joke but then we all kinda went with it (I tank this one) I have been friends with Chaz since he came on the server a few months ago. In this short time he has changed a lot and is now way more mature calm and reminds of the rules .-. I recommend him cuz he really is online a lot and we feel powerless against afk hales and stuff like that.
