Country & Timezone: USA EST (GMT-6)
Hours spent playing daily/weekly: 8-12hrs daily and that multiplied for weekly, lol.
Time played / Date Registered: About 500-1k hours total since original Vortex.
What do you do outside of Vortex? Nothing, currently.
Experience as staff on past servers/games: I used to be WebDev on A-S and early Vortex.
What made you interested in applying for staff rank? I used to do it and I still want to.
Why should you be considered? (How will you impact this community) Because I feel like I care about this community almost more than anyone else that's non staff currently does.
How Familiar are you with Vortex content? (ex: Prices of items, teleportation locations and commands?) Pretty familiar. Because since I've been back, I keep trying to figure out the eco, and I've been on VPSv2 since day one.
Do you feel you have impacted the Vortex community in a positive way? If so, please explain how. I do, because I've been here forever. The OGs know me and I keep trying to get the new people to know who I am. I constantly try to help everyone and make sure that everyone feels welcomed and helped. I don't want anyone to be as confused as when I first started. When I first started, I had no idea how to boss; now I do, thanks to everyone here. I am not afraid to be able to help others even though I may not know the perfect answer, I do know AN answer, which may help them.
What do you believe are the main responsibilities of this position? To be able to answer as many questions that are thrown at you. To be present enough to welcome new players and take part in most of the conversations that occur on the server. And for most people to know who you are.
What would you do if someone was using offensive language? Make sure to remind them that offensive language was not allowed on this server. If they continued, to use whatever powers I had to take care of the situation. Even if that was to report it to someone that was higher up in the staff than I was.
What would you do if someone was insulting a staff member? Make sure to remind them that insulting or berating a staff was against the rules and generally not cool. If they persisted I would use whatever abilities I had a staff member to take care of them even if it meant reporting them to a higher position.
What would you do if you found or were informed about duped items? Because most positions don't have the ability to take care of this issue, I would report it to a staff position higher than myself. If I had the ability to deal with it myself, I would find out how they came about that item and then handle it appropriately. Whether it be a jail, temp ban, or ban.
Anything else you would like us to know? Even though I have been staff before, I don't want that to be a convincing measure for now. I want to be judged and determined as I am now. I love this server; it's my most played RSPS since I discovered them in high school almost 11 years ago. I would do anything to protect this server.

Strongly familiar with locations of npcs for mostly slayer task and with items they change some constantly so with items i would say im fair.

Country & Timezone: USA, Texas/ CST
Hours spent playing daily/weekly: 40H - 60H
Time played / Date Registered: 65H, April 12th but a long time ago too.
What do you do outside of Vortex? I usually am on discord with friends playing Overwatch, CSGO and other games, also am a college student but my classes are also online, so everything to do with computers so am always online.
Experience as staff on past servers/games: Co-Owner of a 474, Admin on 317, Admin on 718, Head moderator 317, and Helper on 474.
What made you interested in applying for staff rank? I've been in this community for awhile now along with others and I just wanted to move up as a Staff member ever since I joined a long time ago. Seeing Suic put in work just made me want to help out regulate the server, so hearing staff spots were open had made me shoot for the opportunity
Why should you be considered? (How will you impact this community) I'd like to be a person that is there when a spammer gets on in the middle of the night when there are only 15 people on and being able to do something about it. Along with being all ears to the community and listening to players without them worrying about their message or problem not being heard.
How Familiar are you with Vortex content? (ex: Prices of items, teleportation locations and commands?) Very familiar as I frequently read the guides and Maxed Iron man so I'm pretty aware of drops and the quickest way to leveling and bosses, and I pay attention to sales that happen throughout the server so I'm well aware of prices of custom items and such.
Do you feel you have impacted the Vortex community in a positive way? If so, please explain how. I have good relations with a majority of players and usually am at home so when new players ask for help, I help them and remind them of commands they could use or even the Quest tab for Custom teleports etc, and am usually involved in the CC with other players.
What do you believe are the main responsibilities of this position? To help other players, To report bugs/exploits to Suic and to be interactive with the community as much as possible.
What would you do if someone was using offensive language? Depending on the vulgarity and the intent behind it, I would warn them and if they continue I would impose punishment and tell higher staff member of the incident.
What would you do if someone was insulting a staff member? If the staff member is online they should be able to handle it themselves as they have the power to but I will assist and ask the staff member if they need help and if everything is okay. If they're not online, I would tell them to stop and screenshot/record the incident and report it to the staff member.
What would you do if you found or were informed about duped items? Report immediately to the other staff members to be on the lookout but first Suic/Chaosworld.
Anything else you would like us to know? I'm a college student that is almost always at home with a weird sleep schedule, so I am always on during the night and afternoon. I'm also 19 Yrs old and am always on Discord.
