    That's an example of admin abuse

    Yes, What point are you trying to make?

    Just saying

    x3Karma has no life Server Admin

    Not sure if you two noticed, but you're to comment on an app to vote for it and explain why you decide on your vote. Don't try to sound like a smartass here @Silent Doc.

    --

    To start off, I didn't comment on your application in 2017 as I was just recently appointed as a staff member back then and I didn't feel like I had the authority to quickly judge others.

    Now that I have gain more experience in the matter, the following will be my opinion and vote on your application.

    I hope that you remember the reason as to why you were rejected by @SomePanns last time. While you may be active in-game, we also need staffs to be active outside of the server. Please do actively take part in Discord conversations to prove to us that you are not inactive.

    The application is also well-formatted and easier to read than the last application you've made. (Although there are some irregular font sizes which I blame Xenforo for making it hard to edit.)

    --

    Judging from that answer, you are thinking of being an admin not only because of your own wish but because of other players viewing you as an admin? There's really not much sense that admins are able to make Slender fun (unless switching bosses) as they are just normal players themselves too. You can already have a good time and fun with people just by interacting with one another.

    And how exactly do you do that? That's whats the question was asking.

    So you'll only check and monitor the forums if there are interesting things? Like? This is also a bad answer, it's like saying you'll only play on TF2 if there are new updates that interests you, sometimes.

    Seems like you forgot to continue your sentence there.

    This falls under staff impersonation. If you let people off like that they will most likely keep doing it until their behavior is kept in checked.

    --

    I read all of the answers and I feel that while a lot were better than the previous application, others are just worse now. I'm not going to list them all out one by one (unless you want me to), as that will take a lot of time during the moment that I am writing this comment.

    I would reject this application due to the fact that I didn't like the answers you've given for some of the questions, however you were very dedicated to the task of being a staff member by applying for a second time. (Though you could've been more confident about your app)

    My vote will be:


    +1 (with conditions)

    My conditions are that you:
    - Be active in Discord.
    - Try playing on other servers for a change.

    I gave you my yes due to the fact that all jobs require time and patience in order for experience to form. I didn't just choose to become an administrator with full understanding of the risks and rewards it have without spending my time as a moderator.

    As you might have known, moderator is just the trial process and is a really important part in the staff team for you to learn and grow in order for you to fully become a server administrator.

    I wish you good luck in your application.

    How are we to believe that you take this seriously if you don't even put your full attention into it?

    Because you haven't seen me taking things so serious..

    What makes you believe that the admin app doesn't need your full attention? It's an important role your applying for in this community, we're not going to hand it over just because you think it's fun.

    I'm going to close this application and give you a new chance, right now, to write a new one. Please put all of your attention into it, proof read it 10 times and make sure you actually have answered the questions correctly and fully.

    You either take this seriously or you need to stop wasting our time.
