    Staff Application for Admiral Ackbar

    Flood Moderator

    United States of America
    Ingame Name:
    Admiral Ackbar
    Steam Profile URL:
    Discord Tag:
    Tell us about yourself:
    Im a junior college student in CS. I like to bike, play video games and tinker with stuff. Im more introverted personality wise but on the server, i like to get creative and build silly boats that shouldnt work. :)

    almost 6 years
    How much time can you dedicate to do the position you chose:
    10 hours a week?
    Server playtime:
    4 days
    How did you find out about Devinity:
    one of my friends introduced me to floor years ago and I've been hooked ever since
    What can you bring to the Devinity Team:
    another eye to keep on the servers making sure people aren't cheating, boosting player count
    Why do you want to be part of the Devinity Team:
    It seems to me that the current moderators have not really been responsive. maybe its something that im doing but they dont seem to come on to help. I just want to stop people from teaming, cheating, and such.
    Do you have any past experience with the position you've chosen:
    I have experience moderating Minecraft servers
    Have you ever posted a ban request, and if so, was it accepted:
    How fast/well can you type:
    I cant type pretty fast, not by any means godly, but im aight.
    What is your favorite part of Devinity:
    the flood servers and the community
    If you got full command over Devinity, what is the first thing you would change:
    bring back the free props

    Flood Scenario Responses
    Scenario 1 (You witness a player leave a prop on another player's boat. The second player doesn't seem to notice. What do you do? What do you do if you find him doing it again next round?)
    ask the player to move their prop If this continues I would try kicking them to remove their props
    Scenario 2 (You see two players whom are not on the same team shooting at a mutual target. While the players aren't close to each other, their target is claiming that they're trucing against him. What do you do?)
    this doesn't really seem like trucing to me. I'm not sure how the staff defines trucing.
    Scenario 3 (A player is spamming chat asking/begging people to join his team. No matter what you do he won't reason with you and continues to spam. What do you do? The same player returns later and begins doing it again, what do you do now?)
    warn the player to stop spamming, if they do not stop kick them
    Scenario 4 (A player joins the server and immediately starts spamming chat with advertisements of another server. You've seen him do this before you were staff. What do you do as a junior moderator? What do you do as a moderator?)
    im not sure what the difference is in abilities between moderators and junior moderators. However i would kick or possibly ban them, seems like something someone would set up a bot for
    Scenario 5 (A player shot a dead player's props 10 seconds after that player had died, what actions do you take? What actions do you take if the same player starts doing it maliciously next round?)
    I would warn the player in case they didnt know it was against the rules, and if they keep doing it with a malicious intent i would kick or possibly ban them

    Any other information we might need

    Hey Admiral ackbar ur a very active player ive seen u on almost every time i join the server which is very important to the community that moderators are active. ur scenario 1 and 2 u doesnt really seem to understand Trucing is when players there are not in the same team but are teaming trying to hide it, what they usually do is that they destroy everyone elses boat and then they farm up each other boats when the round ends. The rules is, If ur not on the same team then dont team.

    I am willing to give u an +1 if u promise me to make a new staff app where u fix ur scenario 1 and 2 good luck (;
