NA GM Application

Tough? Fair? Helpful? Being a GM is one of the more confrontational and thankless jobs on the server. If you would ban your own grandmother for breaking the rules, come put in an application.

NA GM Application

Post#1 » Tue Jun 18, 2019 7:49 am

Activity

I had stopped playing for a while, started back a couple of weeks or so ago. I get online most days of the week, and tend to stay on for hours; I've had multiple 12 hour marathons. I live on the east coast, so the time frames you're looking for are usually when I play, sometimes way earlier than the 4pm you prefer. I already have a habit of helping folks when I can now, and did the same in AoR.

Thick skin

I can deal with making "enemies" if something a person has done requires some kind of punishment. And even if my buttons get pushed, I can refrain from throwing out insults or retaliating by handing out some kind of punishment that isn't warranted. I will likely vent to a friend in priv, just I can get the irritation/frustration out, but I've done a lot of customer service work where I HAD to control myself.

Forum Participation

This is going to be only my 2nd post.. I've read a bit that's been posted, but if I didn't feel my input would help or whatever, I don't post just to raise my post count. But am willing to put more time into finding posts I can contribute to. Technical Support would probably end up being my favorite one, I am a computer tech, played AoR until it shut down so I know most of the mechanics of things pretty well; though I have already found things that aren't the same, so I'm daily learning more about what's what in game. I joined here just over 4 years ago.

Game Systems

I feel I've got a good sense of the mechanics of the game, not a perfect grasp yet, but I'm getting there. I try to stay on top of patch info, since it benefits me as a player to know what's changed, what isn't working, etc. The chat commands, game issues and workarounds that I don't already know, I'm very willing to learn by asking or reading. I will look through the Balance Forums and see if I can find something I can help with.

Tolerance

I've been on both sides, over multiple games; I've been both a decision make, and a decision enforcer, for lack of a better word. Its not easy on any level if you lead in whatever form its in; to use guild terms.. leader, co-lead, jr officer, sr officer, recruiter. In every case there has been both good and bad when it came to decisions being made. Though I will say that I don't see a problem with someone being bother by something recurring that a fix hasn't been found for; however, a person doesn't have to be a jerk about it. I've always felt, be bothered if you want, but keep in mind that sometimes things take time to figure out.

Team Communication

I have set up multiple phpBB forums over the years, and while I do have more experience with vBulletin, I do know my way around phpBB. I will need to download discord, but have also used it in the past, just not as much as vent and teamspeak. I've never used Github, but, if it is a requirement, then I will get it figured out and use it.

Professionalism

Everything that was posted under this section I agree with. To be honest, in AoR I used to "troll the trolls" a lot, usually the worst ones, but I decided it wasn't worth it. While others may have enjoyed the show that went on, it still wasn't worth it. As a player it ended up being easier to just focus on things I could to to help others, I'd still read the chats, but eventually I refused to jump in. Since AoR closed, I've mellowed even more, probably comes with age.



Hopefully I did this they way y'all want. If there's anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask, I'm happy to answer anything, well within reason anyway :)
