20 year old, born in June ‘94
-Experience Level (including any previous admin work)-
No previous experience as moderator unfortunately, but I suppose there is a first for everything. Besides, I am quite a quick learner.
-Average amount of time on our servers per day-
I usually play at least 6 hours a day, Sundays I might be inactive since I attend church. But yeah, everyday about 6-7 hours, at times I can even reach 10 hours.
-Approximately, when did you start playing on our servers?-
At the very beginning of September 2014, I was browsing the servers list and I found nD Deathrun by pure chance. It was the friendliness of the people, and the level of professionalism of the servers that got me to stick to this community, and get addicted
-Do you have a working mic?-
Yes, I do.
-A little bit more about Foxy|Lady-
A brief introduction can also be found in the presentation I made when I joined, but I shall provide some info about me here as well.
My real name is Naomi, but I prefer to be called Foxy around here, it’s like my new identity haha! Actually, I have 2 forenames: Naomi Alexandra - just to clear out the confusion for people I’ve introduce myself to as “Alex”. I was born and raised in a small town in the North-East of Romania, but moved to UK in September 2013 after finishing highschool, for further higher education, with hope in my heart for a better life, and a new start. I started my first year of Biomedical Engineering in uni, but after finishing it I dropped out due to various reasons, and now I am applying again for something else to start in September this year. Probably Computing Science and maybe also Mathematics alone, since I absolutely love Maths, could easily do it all day everyday .
-Some of my hobbies/passions-
Apart from playing CS all day long, there are other stuff that I do too! (unbelievable, I know)
I like to cook and bake sometimes, have this passion from my mum probably, since she worked as a cook for over 20 years, and always cooked and baked delicious stuff for us. Since she passed away, I sort of had to take over cooking and that’s how I found out I actually very much enjoy doing it. We also used to watch a lot of cooking shows together and she’d guide me through what people are doing wrong, and stuff. I learnt quite a lot from her, and am still on a learning path.
Also, I have a great passion for music. I love to sing and always seek improvement and the achievement of perfection(yeah, good luck with that). I like to spend my time studying other artists, their vocal range, their vocal techniques, even though I don’t know very much musical theory, but I always try to learn more about it and I try my best. Even though my voice is not that beautiful, it’s actually quite average, my ear is quite sensitive and I believe I am quite talented in this area. I’ve also studied guitar for 3 years, and my professor told me at some point : don’t flatter yourself now, but I haven’t had such a talented student like you in years.. So yeah, this I can be proud of . At some point I was actually considering following the path towards vocal coaching (career wise), but I couldn’t bear the thought of having a career that lacks maths.
-Why apply? Motivation-
I won’t try to make myself look good or to impress anyone, but I’ll rather be honest with you.
The reason for which I want to become a member is to help the community, and especially Deathrun, since it is the server I play most on , and the abuse that is going on is massive. Playing the whole day, there isn’t always a member there to moderate, and I can’t really call someone because a player is giving freerun to his friend or is bug abusing. I always try to moderate, and explain the rules to the players that seem to not be obeying them, but there is so much I can do as a regular.
Since I am a very friendly person, a lot the regulars that come on Deathrun, from which a lot of nonsteamers, know me already, and usually listen to me when I moderate. But there are plenty of times when the players that are rulebreaking are either refusing to listen to me, or simply don’t understand English, so my moderation without powers is in vain at these times..
It also very frequently happens that people come to me when in need of guidance or ask me to call a member/admin, and even more than that, I’ve found myself very often in the situation in which someone comes to me because a player is harassing them or breaking the rules, asking me to take action and slay them, or warn them.. at which point I find myself with my hands tied.
Although I mostly play on Deathrun, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be able to help when someone from another server comes to me for help. I also visit Jailbreak, TTT and Deathmatch once in a while, and I can say I am familiar with every server's rules and gameplay, and I could always try my best to help when needed.
Since I have so much free time until uni starts, and I am so active, I might as well be of help to this community.
