Ra!NoX applying for the Runner's!

Post by Ra!NoX »

Hello there fellows!


My nickname is Ra!NoX and my is real name is Tommy ;)

My life, simply looking for a job for the moment, receiving money from social services.. I also have meetings 09.00 - 12.30 Mondays - Fridays, (but I mostly skip them because I keep the economic fine)
And if I don't play cs, I usually keep around my friends doing some crazy sh*t, or like going into hibernation sometimes hehe.. And I'm also soon taking the driving license! ;) one more test + money, and I've got it :D
Also the first time I saw Counter-Strike were in 05/06, when my older brother were playing.. but he refused me to play.. :cry: So I played non-steam 1.5/1.6 for a short period in 07/, then I finally got my brothers steam account in 08/..
And the very first map I played were de_azec, and I were so confused.. Then I found deathrun, very first map there were actually deathrun_extreme ;)

Also I were playing alot on the Jailbreak server before, I were also permanently banned from the nD servers cause admins were suspecting me using scripts, plus alot of other things like freekilling (that's looong time ago)
(but I haven't used scripts since late 09' when I played on the Deutsche community terrorkom-clan (couldn't use scripts after the update in 09/10 :clap: , but then I took an break from counter-strike, but I've got more free time on my hand now :)

More about the motivation part: I feel that an extra member is needed for the runner team as I often playdaytime/evenings/late nights
as mentioned somewhere, and I see alot of them rulebreakers, and I can't keep calling Foxy and Minna over 24/7 for everything, and my VIP power is also very limited..
And I believe I could do some good work in nD ;)

- Age: 19
- Gender: Male

- Experience Level: I have been member in several communities (mY.RuN, Fragnation, also admin in Fragaholics in the last period before it was shut down)
I were hosting own game servers + web servers (whole Fragnation), I basically been trying/failing alot since 2008/09, with server's stuff) - Self learning, the best way.

I also know some coding, mapping and alot of client/server commands, and of course the amx commands, also the whole nD system which Shadi shown me when I met him in Copenhagen back in 11"(?)..

My general experience level in CS and which servers I usally play on:
Deathrun (1) - Poeple are calling me professional but I would personally rank myself High/Average
Jailbreak - (Somtimes/not alot of commanding, but still rebelling :trollface: )
Deathmatch/Aim - (Regularly there too).

- Average amount of time on our servers per day: I play regularly in weeks on late nights/evenings, depends alot on my day-rhythm..

My personal rank stats for the deathrun server http://cs5.neondragon.net/public/toplis ... 0:28410216

- Approximately, when did you start playing on our servers?: I guess around 2009(?) (I found nD the same time I found mY.RuN approx)

- Do you have a working mic?: Yes, a half broken Logitech G35 that needs some repairs, but I usually hang it around my neck using speakers.
I also got a webcam microphone (Logitech C525) but it has some echo if used with my speakers.. :(

- Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:28410216

Yes, I know I'm gonna get complaints about the forum activity, but I still regularly check active posts and try to answer to what I can..;)

I have also decided to attach my config in case anyone wanna check it out, since some people are suspecting me for scripts.

Hiya dude. I don't play a lot of DR so my stuff is based on how I know and see you as a person, from a general point rather than DR-only. I like you. We don't really talk but I have heard and noticed things. You're a really nice guy that has become mature in a quick way, although can show his immaturity too whenever it's longed for. I have no doubt about your rule knowledge, you seem to know them all. Your English is understandable and your in-game activity is really good! I genuinely believe you could be a good addition to the team, but I don't think that moment is right now. Do people know you? I think by interacting more with people on the forums you should be able to show them who you are and what you're made of. Do so, and that spot will be up for you to fill. Do you not, then I see no near future for you as a member, here in this community.

Good luck!

I don't play cs 1.6 anymore but when I was playing and you was at the server, as I remember, I know you're friendly, helping others. I don't know if you moderating cause I didn't see you moderating before .. tell me if I'm wrong, but you deserve it. Good luck ;)

I tried moderating as much as possible with my VIP features, but on deathrun, you got very limited powers.. There is not much to do, unless you're actually a member, then they'll listen (some atleast)

I know well I were an rule breaker before which I am deeply sorry for, but I've been inactive alot after those incidents, and I've aged, and my behavior and playtime is at top, which I feel atleast..

Hey Rainox, I have to say you really caught me off guard with this application!
Here's my opinion of you.

PROs

Friendliness - You are a nice guy, and friendly, as people around here say.

Application - In terms of provided info, your application looks very decent. I'd ditch all those colours and different sized texts, it's exhausting for the eye. But afterall it's your application, and it perhaps shows a bit of your colourful self, what do I know :)

Activity - You play on Deathrun quite a lot, so keep that up!

English - Your level of English is satisfactory. Written, it is clear and understandable, I have yet to hear you speak ;)

Experience - From what you've said, you clearly have some background in moderating and such, so that's good.


CONs

Moderation - I have never, ever seen you moderate. Ever. You don't necessarily need powers in order to moderate? As in VIP or member powers. Sure, they come in handy and help a lot, but that's not an excuse for you to not moderate.

Rule knowledge - I had to moderate you a couple of times, with bug abusing, quite recently. It only shows me that you aren't very familiar with the Deathrun rules, which I kind of reinforce everytime I join the server.

Social interaction - As Lien said : "Do people know you?". It's not only in regards to your forum activity/forum posts. I'm also talking about your in-game interaction with the players. Whenever you join the server, you just play by yourself, and talk to no one. I have seen a lot of players address to you in order for you to take action against a rule-breaker of some sort, because you're a VIP, and people assume that VIPs are admins. You didn't even bother to reply to them, at least saying you can't or anything. And this also brings me back to your lack of moderation. Moderation doesn't only imply !switch !kick !ban, you also have to talk to the players, explain to them what they're doing wrong, warn them, tell them the rules, etc.

I believe I have already said enough. The CONs I've stated, kind of outweigh your PROs, however, I will not give you a stiff NO. I strongly believe you can easily work on these CONs, and prove yourself worthy of this position. Thus, my vote is an extend for now.

Good luck, you can do it ;)

I recall this and I recall how many times we all told you to stop but you'd be a smartass about it. That and (banevading? don't even have clear memories if that was true) were all the issues I've had with you in the past. Get to know the community in a proper way and I know you can do a good job like you did on mY.RuN.
I hope the thing about bugabusing on deathrun stated by Foxy isn't a repetition of this past behaviour though.

You are a good person but you have tendencies to do stupid things and being stubborn, get rid of those traits as much as you can and you'll eventually get there.

Have known this guy for about 4 years now.
I'm pretty sure he'd be able to be a good member.
He has had plenty of own servers to build experience with on moderating etc.
I don't see any use of giving pro's and con's, it's a yes for me.

I learned from playing with you before on JB that you do have the capability to show good behaviour, as in not break any rules, but i noticed also back then you didnt make any effort to stand out. Of course that was quite a while ago, More recently I have noticed when playing deathrun and speedrun, albeit rarely, that you had virtually no interation with anyone from what i saw, of course i havent been on a while in deathrun, but you never seemed to make any effort, for anything really, you just seemed there to play. Of course there is nothing wrong with that in any sense, but the worry for me is that applying for member you are not showing consistency, so you are not showing that it is a habit for you to help others, or you do desire to solve problems in the servers or things like that. Of course, this can be worked on and mabye you have done so that i have not seen so i will not pass judgement on it.

The main issue i would present is your behaviour before you kinda left to go to Fa, such as the thing decency mentioned about the override thing, that even though not allowed, you still continued to use it, and not like others to simply have smoother gameplay, i remember usually seeing someone flying around the map and knowing it was you, either using it to rebel as a T, or gain advantage in some fashion, So in a sense "abusing" the fact you could reach such speeds. I did also notice before you left for FA that you had resorted to trolling in some sense, if i remember correctly there were reports made on you, I cannot recall what the outcome of such things were.

Another thing to note, is that you are actually on Strike 2 . Although the first strike at least was a while ago, this is still somewhat worrying.

Basically to conclude, I believe you as a person have to potential to be an okay addition to the runner team, but I personally dont believe that i could trust that you would be able to handle the responsibility, and treat people fairly in all cases where possible. But, I wont cast any vote relating to it, as I realise alot of my worries are outdated, I hope you prove me wrong, and good luck with your application.

tommy my love good to see u apply, I been playing with this bitch for years now. Helped him improve hes servers(gambling ;p) when he had them running and I can tell he is dedicated and motivated. And hes pretty known to everyone here and most here knows that hes a good dude and will do a good job. And if peoples judge him from hes past about hes strikes, Peoples learn from their mistakes. you got my YES.

@Foxy: If you gonna give him a no for hes lack of moderation is a stupid thing. Most members around here dont even give a shit if peoples rulebreak, yet they have their member status. And for hes lack of post on the forums why does that matter, Peoples got accepted with 3x less posts then him. And yeah, Peoples do a better job in moderating with member status and he would do 10x better job then few members around here.

Sorry for that, dont judge me.

No, no it's not. It's still a criteria, whether some people lack it or have it it's still a valid con; and you shouldn't base it on everyone else.

Other than Waffle I don't recall anyone being accepted with 3x less posts than 40. And even if it was the case it's still really good to be forum active and interact with the community that way. + He's not above average with the quality of his posts, how many posts, and how long he's had a forum account - less than average if anything.

We need to confirm competence before giving member/promotions not after, authority and respect should be gained the same way as well. People who believe otherwise are either deluded or way too army-oriented and even in the army there's a reason people have their ranks.

Also I didn't read some of the posts, that one just got my attention so if there were good arguments against/for already - my apologies.
