    Denied The reason I'm denying this is due to lack of forum and discord activity, while you did state you have computer issues those things are something we look at when people are applying for staff regardless of circumstances. I'd recommend posting constructively on things such as other staff applications and ban appeals. You may re-apply in 7 days

    -1 I agree with the statements above. Brumskee you were an ok staff member. But you have no activity in-game and out of game like on discord and forums. Also what higher up told you to come back?

    In-Game Name A YELLOW Age: 17 Timezone: MDT Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:180577197 Steam Profile (a link):https://steamcommunity.com/id/aagentyellow/ Hours on the server: 196 hours ( I don’t think this is correct ) Times you're most active: From 3-10 on week days and 24 on sat Why I want/should be a moderator:Well RetributionRP was my first RP server and I have been on and off It for a while (due to some computer problems that have been fixed) and it has a special place in my heart. I was an admin on an ark server for about two years ( A WALK IN THE ARK ) and I was made assistant manager in my first six months of my job. I have been in Debate for six years I was captain of oratory and impromptu speech. My love for games and people knows no bounds. I as well feel that I am well known on the server itself. Have you read the rules fully, understand and feel comfortable enforcing them as correctly as possible?: Yes Are you willing to listen to any Staff member chosen to mentor and guide you as a Staff, even if you feel you don't need to?: Yes Are you certain you will be able to staff for several hours a week?: most definitely Situations: The server begins to lag and players are complaining about prop spam: I would check logs for props spawned in the last five minutes or so. If I found a person that has been consecutively spawning in props I would teleport to them to confirm if they were spamming props. If I found them prop spamming I would freeze them and check how many times they have been warned depending on their past. If this is their first time I will give them a verbal warning as well as an explanation on what they are doing wrong and tell them not to do it again. Now If this is their second time I would jail them for three hundred seconds and give them an explanation and heed them not to do it again. If this is their third time then I would tell them what they did wrong and tell them to take time to reflect on their action, then ban them for six hours. If this is their fourth time I would contact a higher up to ask what their punishment should be. You're involved in a sit where a player has said the base he's raiding is illegal: [What process do you take to make sure the player fixes the issues with their base? What if the player refuses or ignores you altogether?] I would teleport to the owner of the base then check the base for any rule breaking builds, Then I would give them tips to fix the problem and check in about five minutes or so, after this if they proceed to not fix the problem and ignore it. I give them a verbal warning and an explanation why they are warned. If they proceed to neglect it then would seek help from a higher up to discuss a punishment nothing too strong but probably a kick. You see another staff member abusing their power: [Give an example of a staff abuse and how you would handle it/who you would contact] Let's say another admin is mass rdming while in god mode, I would try to isolate the other admin as much as possible, to try to help players have fun. At this time I would also contact other admins and higher ups. (By isolate I mean kick,ban,jail, freeze, teleport) (If this is Jouaram god help us all) A player is extremely uncooperative during a sit and is throwing insults at you: [What do you do if a player isn't listening to what you're saying? What do you do if they are insulting you?] If a player is being uncooperative I would ask them to calm down then tell them “Hey I am not here to make you upset I am here to fix the problem” If they are still being uncooperative then I would gag them and tell them what they did wrong and ask them to comply if still not complying then i would jail them for one-hundred-twenti seconds and after that if still not complying then I will consult a higher up. A player is excessively RDMing/RDAing and breaking NLR: [What is RDM/RDA and NLR? How do you determine if a player is breaking any of these?] I would teleport whoever wrote the ticket to me then ask what is going on and who, then I would teleport the offender to me and check his warn look for any past issues. Then I would ask him his side of the story and check Damage/arrest/NLR logs seeing that the offender has done a lot of Damage/arrest/NLR I would seek a higher up because it is so excessive. (Additional Comments): [Speak your mind here] I know I am not that active on the forums and discord but this is primarily not having a computer that works. Please don't let this sway your decision.

    I want to add something in brumskee talking to higher ups about you losing your rank due to inactivity, you then expressed that you have so much free time as you are on a break from work.The higher up team decided if you wanted to come back to staffing you should have to re apply as we have a new menu and some rules and gain your previous rank back the fair way

    -1 Don't get butt hurt and just listen. I are a cool guy, chilling with you in vc is great. But there are some warning signals that have been raised to my attention the last 2 months. Here is a list You like Drama sadly if you like it or not, When the whole poyo thing was happening you were trying to be a infiltrator in Ghouls discord. I was in VC with you and you said I can became friends with her many times to get a inv to the discord after we told you to drop it. In my books you get annoyed to easily. Some actions that players do tic you off. I hear it in vc again. Your activate in-game and on the discord is great. But your reputation through out the server and forums labels you as a minge. Again I'm just outside looking in on this topic. I think a perfect why to fix this is by being more friendly and NOT BMing people about certain things. Just have fun this is a Gmod server after all. I think you're more worried about people liking you than just rping. The more you enjoy the game the more people will gravitate to you and like you. So in conclusion, you're labeled as toxic/minge. Fix it. Just be nice mind your business and you'll be good for you're next app.

    Staff Handbook v3 Failure to abide the handbook as a staff member may result in punishment. Retribution higher staff hold the right to remove anyone they deem unfit for staff from the staff team. Introduction If you’re thinking about joining the staff team, you’ll want to first read through and get a good feel of everything that’s written below. The handbook is designed to give all staff a good guideline of ways to staff and handle situations. The Staff Hierarchy All staff members must respect the chain of command. Follow the hierarchy and if a staff member higher than you tells you to fix something or give you tips then follow them. Remember that we are a team that must work together. Trial-Moderator → Moderator → Administrator → Senior Administrator → Super Admin → Owner Owner Jouaram is the owner of the server. He’ll be here to assist and give his input where needed, if you have a question relating staffing/addons/suggestions/custom classes etc. you can contact him directly! (https://steamcommunity.com/id/Jouaram/) Super Administrator Supers are the head of the staff team and will be there whenever needed. Their job is to make sure everything is running smoothly and making sure that everyone is doing what they’re supposed to. Super administrators must have a strong forum/in-game presence, leadership skills, maturity, and the ability to make hard decisions. Permissions Ban: Permanent Demote Privileges: Yes Forums: All Discord: All Senior Administrator Senior Administrators are admins who shine exceptionally within Retribution’s staff team and must show signs of leadership and good communication. They are advisers and teachers for the staff you can go to at any time for help or assistance. Senior admins and above are part of a small group called higher-ups which handle hard hitting topics and are generally very close in terms of communications. Senior admin is also the first rank where you don't apply for it but invited to join. Being a mentor is not a necessity to become senior admin but it does help. Permissions Ban: Permanent Ban Demote Privileges: Strikes/Demotions if discussed with other higher-ups Forums: ModeratorCP Discord: All Administrator Administrator is the third rank in the chain and the starts of the real leadership. At this point, you have a good understanding of the rules, server in general and staff. After a month of admin, you have the ability to apply for the mentor role. Mentor are people have shown that they have qualities needed to teach new trial moderators.Moderators who wish to become administrator must apply and pass their test. Administrators need to show a strong in-game and forum presence. Whenever you answer a player complaint you must tag a Higher Up, tell us how long you are banning the person, and tell us what you are banning them for. You will be held accountable for your bans. Permissions Ban: 3 weeks Demote Privileges: No Forums: Player Complaints Discord: Kick + Ban (Channel/Server) Moderator After passing your trail moderator phase you are promoted to moderator. Reaching this rank means that you have proven yourself to have a good understanding of the rules and have a basic understanding of staffing. You gain a lot of new commands which help you handle different situations and a increased ban-time. Permissions Ban: 1 week Demote Privileges: No Forums: None Discord: None Trial-Moderator Trial moderator is the first position available to those who wish to pursue a role in server moderation. To get this rank you must post a staff application and get accepted. After that, you will take a test which shows that you have a basic understanding of the rules. If you pass then you will get mentor which will teach you the ins and out of staffing. Trail moderators should use this position as a learning curve by requesting assistance from their superiors; ask questions, ask for help, ask about punishments, etc. Trial moderators must maintain an active presence on the forums, discord, and server in which they maintain a basic level of control. Permissions Ban: 12 hours Demote Privileges: No Forums: None Discord: None Server Commands of trial moderator: Chat Commands Gag - Restricts the targeted player's speech through voice Through console - sam gag playername 1h Through chat - !gag player 1h Mute - Restricts the targeted player's speech through chat Through console - sam mute playername 1h Through chat - !mute player 1h Fun Commands freeze - Restricts a player from moving or spawning props. Right-clicking while holding the player will freeze them Through chat - !freeze player Through console - sam freeze player Jail - Restricts the player from spawning props and jails them Through console - sam jail player 10m Through chat - !jail player 10m JailTP - Similar to the jail command but it teleports the player wherever you are looking Through console - sam respawn player Through chat - !jailtp player 10m respawn - respawns the player Through console - sam respawn player Through chat - !respawn player freezeprops - freezes all props on the server Through console - sam freezeprops Through chat - !freezeprops Teleport Commands Bring Through console - sam bring player Through chat - !bring player Goto Through console - sam goto player Through chat - !goto player Return Through console - sam return player Through chat - !return player Utility Commands kick - Kicks the player.

All staff members can access the warn menu by typing !warns. aWarn is used primarily for 3 things: Keeping track of players punishments that you hand out. Keeping track of other staff members punishments that they hand out. Allowing you to make a judgement for your punishment based off the offenders previous warns. When dealing with your sit, check the offenders warns every time. This is to check for warns they have (if any), if they are recent, and what they are for. This will allow you to tell if the offender is a repeat offender or they just had a one-time slip up; you should punish differently depending on this. Recent and relevant warns means you should give a harsher punishment for the offender in question, but for no warns/irrelevant warns be more lenient. When you’re punishing a player, you are adding a !warn on to them for the exact reason you’re punishing them no matter how small the punishment is (even if it’s a verbal warn). For example, if I jail Yimo for RDMx2 with a 300 second jail, I would warn them as follows: Sit Etiquette When you’re taking sits you are representing Retribution. You’ll want to make sure you’re giving off the best impression possible, dealing with the sit in a well-mannered and polite way whilst still getting all punishment necessary handed out. Make sure when you’re handling sits to be cooperative with the players to avoid them getting impatient and hostile. If a player who’s sit your handling is getting hostile, it is your job to handle it as maturely as possible and only gag/mute if 100% necessary. Examples of both good and bad sit etiquette: Punishment Guidelines for Staff Trial-Moderators/Moderators/Administrators are prohibited to use commands on each other as forms of punishment or breaking rules. If seen doing so you will be punished for misrepresenting Retribution as Staff. However, if you do witness another Staff member breaking rules/abusing their powers write a formal complaint on the Forums or contact one of the higher-ups immediately. (In rare cases if a Staff member has gone rogue you can use powers if completely necessary) Not going to sits is reprehensible and will result in severe punishments. Higher staff will assign and base punishments off a strike system, however there is not a max amount of strikes that can be given out at one time. Ignoring sits is defined as failing to initiate the proper help required to satisfy calls. I.E: Not teleporting, punishing, or assisting. If you are found ignoring sits while on duty, you will be given an appropriate strike. If you are found ignoring sits while off duty and not in a role play situation, you will be given an appropriate strike. If you are found abusing in anyway, strikes may be assigned. If you are found not abiding to any rules or guidelines, a warning or strike may be assigned mattering on the situation. Punishment Never punish sight unseen. You must go to the call, investigate, and inform those directly involved the outcome BEFORE administering punishment. Witnesses can lie. We do not recommend involving witnesses in sits unless they were directly involved with the initial problem. Ban is a last resort. Work with the players. Guide them and help them understand their wrongdoings. If they continue to break rules, then a ban may be necessary. Sits If you bring someone to a sit and see they deserve a ban, you must tell them they are being banned for and explain the rules that they have broken. Strike System Strikes are forms of punishment for staff if they are found abusing their powers or breaking rule. There is maximum of 3 strikes: Strike 1: Verbal warning. Strike 2: Further warning, possible temporary demotion depending on situation. Strike 3: Termination of Staff position Forum Rules Staff members are required to interact on all aspects of the forums. Inactivity on the forums will result in the hindrance of any possible promotions. Staff opinions/views on topics are crucial to the advancement of the community. Staff members are expected to help on the forums by: Giving input on moderator/administrator applications Giving input on ban appeals and player complaints Generally helping out players Reporting content that goes against forum rules. Behavior Professionalism You are a representative of Retribution, be professional. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Never disrespect, harass, or manhandle any member of the community. OOC is not for arguing or disrespect, handle it privately. Be courteous to the community and keep your composure. How can I help you? Is there anything else you need? Have a good day. Patience Allow discussions, but no excessive arguing; use the !mute/!gag function if arguing persists. Allow sufficient time for all involved parties to tell their side of the story. Witnesses are not considered an involved party. Take your time in situations; check the rules and don’t hesitate to ask for help! Ensure you make the right decisions. Remain calm and never lose your temper. Attitude As a staff member you're representing Retribution with every comment/action on the platform, keep your attitude about the server as positive as possible. You're working towards keeping all players happy with the outcome of your staffing, your attitude will help reflect this when dealing with situations face to face. Staff Guidelines On Duty: If a staff member has selected their job as Staff on Duty, then they have indicated they are giving their full attention to performing staff duties, not role playing. Do: Go to ALL calls received within your limitations. Minimize noclip and do not noclip into bases unless involved in a sit. Remain professional, fair, and honest. Find a balance within staffing and rping. Set your job to Citizen if you’re going AFK and use the /afk command. Do Not: Ignore calls. Abuse/Use your moderator/administrator powers to give ANYONE an advantage. Use moderator/administrator powers on any ANY staff member, user, or donor UNLESS it is for sit purposes. Noclip at all without reason. Go on an alternative account to spy/test/etc on others. Use noclip to build unless it’s for small tool use. Urgent Bans: Urgent bans are bans that need to be applied as quickly as possible for the health of the server, and potentially without a sit. The reasons for these bans include anything that would cause harm to the server (crashes, lag etc), usually the only reason for this is propspam but sometimes exploits. Permanent Ban Reasons: DDOS Threats Malicious Activity Scripts/Hacks/Exploiting If you are confused or need help at any time higher-ups are all available to message or talk to for assistance!
