Questions

Why are you applying for GM?:

I've been a maple player for years, and know the game inside out.
I've been a GM on many servers, including owning a successful one of my own.
I have experience with how to GM, using ID's and engaging the community with fun and fair events.
I genuinely enjoy having power, not for greedy reasons, but so I can always be of help to others. I find that when I have the power to, I am much more helpful and useful than without power.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What Interests you most about being a GM?:

I'm not going to lie. I love walking around in hide. Also, having authority is mind blowing.
GM's don't need to ask for it, they just get it. I have been a rebellious player in past servers because some GM's were jerks and abused their power
and authority. I like that some GM's can have authority, but also still be a regular player in a way.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How would you seek to improve the server as a GM?:

I would try to pick out any flaws related to the server, whether they are player related or not. When they appear,
I will try to take care of them. As for hackers, you hack, prepared to get banned. I'd confirm it first though.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you see yourself filling an important role on the current GM staff?:

Absolutely. All GM's are an important part in a private server community.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have you had any past experience as a GM or as a moderator?:
1.Server(s) Name:

I have had experience in private servers such as

Dutch MS
AngerFist MS
Zeus MS
Dagon MS
CobaltBlue MS
Pirate MS
Pineapple MS


No proof of these, they all closed a while back. I've wiped my pc a couple of times so no screen shots are on it at the moment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will you be on the server daily?:

from 1 to 4 usually. After 7, I will be on till later. During school, I probably won't be on as much.

How long will you be on the forums daily?:
I will be on the forums when I am playing on the server.

What would you say your best qualities are?:

My best qualities are my abilities to be funny and helpful. I love messing around with friends and job skills etc. It just enhances the gameplay and creates a more friendly environment.

Are you a team player?:

Yes, I am a team player.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you share any account(s)?
no.

Can you code?:

I can do a bit of java and am learning ruby.

What would you do if you weren't accepted?:

I would continue playing because I know some people on this server, thankfully. Not only because of that, but because I enjoy being a player as well. (:

Extra Information:

I started playing Maplestory (GMS) in 2007/08 with a few friends from school. After getting a few characters 100+, I got bored of the game. To solve my boredom, I made a brand new account, on another world, and began hacking for fun. I know hacking is bad and etc, but I wasn't using it to further my wealth or anything. After hacking myself to 100, I got bored, and just quit maple all together. Few months roll by, and my friend tells me about OdinMS. I joined Odin, and began contributing to the forums however I could. Once OdinMS died, I went to a smaller community server running on Titan Source called PirateMS. During this time, I helped with EXTENSIVE bug tests and solutions. The server eventually died due to a lack of funds, and then I quit maple for 4-5 months. I got in the mood and decided to look up a private server, and I found one called CobaltBlueMS. A few days after joining up and befriending the owner, he decided to stop hosting it, and simply sent me the database, and said good luck. I was still young and decided to pass the database onto another trusty admin. After this time, I learned how to use MySQL, as well as how the structure of a server works and functions. The server ran for about 5-6 months before we decided to close it down. I quit maple again for a year, and decided to start up again, this time, finding DestinyMS. DestinyMS was really fun, but rollback after rollback, and an "elite" community bogged me down. I decided to quit. I have played in over 60+ servers. I am pretty tech savvy. I built my own laptop and customized my pc. It's obvious that a part of a GM's job is to prevent hacking and what not, but apps do not really show what people who applied can actually as part of the staff. I've applied for alot of spots as staff, but this app wasn't my favorite.

I'm sorry to say this but , from most of the applications I saw ,including yours , It doesn't say anything about preventing hackers , bugs , etc . Thats the MOST important thing about being a GM . Protecting our server . Anyways, The rest of your app is nice ! But add more details in the beginning . LOL . Good Luck !

"From most applications you saw."

Yeah, I edited and added something about hackers in there. When I stated "I will try to pick out flaws related to the server" I was also referring to bugs and "etc". Whatever you mean by "etc". Protecting our server is important, but from my past experience and in my opinion, preventing hackers and bugs "etc" is not the most important job of a GM. Sometimes, actions speak louder than words. That is what I think when I read other players' apps. Anyone can ban a hacker, but can you really make a difference in the server?

I didn't include many details in the beginning because I found short answers suitable for the app format. I would do better if I was actually being interviewed or something.
