    1. General Information.

    -Nickname: acoustic
    -Age: 23
    -Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:53912927
    -Server(s) you are applying for: ZE
    -Current Activity: very active until April, 1st, then mainly in the evening/early night during the week (but on weekends I'll also hop on the server more often)
    2. Why do you want to be an admin?

    This server and its players already offered me countless hours of entertainment and fun and I try to contribute to that already by talking to players, having fun and cracking some jokes. And although serious rulebreaks happen quite infrequently while admins are not on the server (or in spec) this might still ruin a fun round (e.g. by knfing zms), and that is why I'd like to help out to keep the players happy and the trolls away. It's all about giving something back to this community!

    3. What past experience do you have and other things that would benefit us having you as an admin?
    I have gathered admin experience on another (english-speaking) community, but this was for a Jailbreak - Server and not ZE.

    4. Can you play during edgy hours?

    During the week (from April on) definitely not, but during the weekends I like to stay a bit longer for playing "unconventional" maps like knife_fun when the player number goes down and the server s atmosphere is chill. During this time I already saw it myself that using admin is almost never neccessary but in case I need to step in, I'll do warn, kick or even ban depending the circumstances.

    5. Imagine you as a brand new admin, you suspect a player to inflate on purpose.

    I'd first spectate him and warn him. If he does stop then, then it s settled, otherwise I'd kick him with something like "Do not inflate (get infected by zms) on purpose" as reason, and if the player still continues by then, I will ban him for half an hour. But one thing to remember (at least I always did that when I had to use my admin on JB) is to check the player s history on sourcebans, "repeated offenders" will get more severe punishments because by then they already got warned through past bans. This also counts for punishments that involve muting and/or gagging.

    6. Other stuff and/or last words.

    I like this ZE Server because, for me, the atmosphere here is the right balance between often having a blast (due to some hilarious music or soundclips) and serious gameplay when trying to beat a difficult map. In the past I've played ZE on Plague Fest and GFL, but rather casually. This is the first ZE Server where I try to involve myself more in the community and chat to other players more, already made some friends here and I get along with many people really well here, and I hope that will continue, be it as admin or as regular player/vip.

    Hello autistic and thank you for applying!

    I have only seen you a couple of times myself, due to me to not playing as much as I used to. I'd like to know you better(and the rest of the admin team), despite that, your application is very well written and I like the way you think. I believe you have the right mindset and what it takes to be an admin here at UNLOZE.

    Nevertheless, please wait patiently while me and the rest of the Senior Admin team thorougly discuss your application.

    Once again thank you for applying and have a nice and wonderful day/night.

    Thank you for the kind words Hudda, I am sure we'll cross paths on the server soon enough. Hoping for you having a nice day as well, despite everything that s going on all over the world currently.
  5. Good luck, bro.

    Good luck, well written application!

    As a general observation and something I thought about when reading this, it seems as if many applicants use the "I see rule breakers when admins are not online" and despite us accepting those people as admins, new people come with the same incentive (implying the previous applicants "failed" with their own goal?). Based on your reply for the edgy hours question, how will you intend to be different? As I take it, you tend to play later at night when server is more "dead".

    Hello William and thank you!

    To address your thoughts about the paraphrased reason I'd like to say that for me it is not about "replacing" current admins (past applicants) but rather complementing them. I see it as naturally growing more and more into the role as an Admin. First by observing how current admins deal with certain situations and then applying this knowledge myself. In my own experience one needs to gradually start making own decisions. As JB-Admin I was the kind of admin, who quite frequently seeked advice from higher ups and asked whether decisions I've made (ban duration, the way of communicating with the player leading up to the ban etc.) were okay and also if there were aspects I could still improve upon.

    In my opinion this feedback-driven "style" suits me the best. First you have to develop a feeling for the server and the general atmosphere at different times. That is why I'd like to first to observe during daytimes and start acting during night times until I feel confident enough to also act when the server is more active. But you asked how I intend to be different, and to be perfectly honest, I am certainly not reinventing the wheel with this approach, I just think this is one of the better ways of doing it. If you think otherwise, or just want to give me a more experienced view upon this, I am happy to listen and adapt.

    I already like to just look closely whenever admins have to dish out punishments and how they do it (verbal warnings, written warnings, no warnings but the punishment-length is short, therefore a warning in itself ...) and I hope to fit in the current admin team and be a valuable addition.
