Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Pennsylvania USA, but currently live in Charleston, SC.
How long have you been a part of Onyx?
I first joined Onyx around May of 2020.
How many hours do you spend online daily?
I work a full time job, so days that I work I only get to play 3 - 4 hours. Weekends and days off I tend to squeeze in 6 - 7 hours on Onyx before my wife starts getting pissed. 😂
Are you active both in-game and on our forums?
I strive to be as active as possible in game answering any player's questions that I see. Forums not as much due to a pretty low volume of active discussions.
Why do you want to be part of our Staff team?
I have been playing Onyx for a little while now, and obviously since I'm still around I have enjoyed my time here. In fact, Onyx has prolly earned its own special place in my heart. Anything you hold dear, you want to see succeed and be the best version of itself that it can be. I want Onyx to succeed and flourish so that as many players can find that sense of community and make new friends the same way I have. However nothing is perfect, and as great of a server as we have.. there are many areas in which Onyx can improve. I have ideas and I want to be a conduit for the community so that their voices are heard so that we maintain and excel as a server as I know we can.
How would you describe your strengths?
I feel that I am a very personable person. If you have a question or concern I have no problem taking the time to help you even over the smallest matters. Also I am genuinely concerned with people's wellbeing and the experience they are having.
I have a high knowledge of the server and Runescape in general. I have been playing the game for 13 years both RS3 and OSRS and many RSPS over that time. (Sadly) Runescape is my passion / hobby and I want to do more with this passion that just grind levels, but also help people and make the game I love so dearly just as enjoyable for them.
I am not afraid to share my view point even if it differs from the majority. Even if someone's opinion may differ from my own, I am respectful at all times and try to point myself in their position to understand why they have a certain opinion over another.
How would you describe your weaknesses?
While I am very willing to share my opinion, I am open minded and welcome change (if the change is warranted). I sometimes am so easy going or open to changed that I may come off as indifferent or indecisive.
I lack technical abilities such as coding or graphic design.. so unfortunately I won't be able to be super useful helping in that area.
Please describe any experience in leadership roles you have or had:
I've been in the Navy for 6.5 years and have been placed in many leaderships roles, some of which I've been more prepared for than others. As LPO I've had to make tough decisions on punitive measures when someone in my division gets caught blazing maintenance or gets in trouble outside of work. I've had to plan and lead complex maintenance availability making sure every one was assigned a job appropriate for them and that everyday there was a clear plan for what work needed done.
Why should we choose you over another member’s application?
I feel like I have developed a reputation for myself and my dedication for the server. I strive to be as helpful and down to earth as possible and I hope that has been able to be noticed and that I improved the experience for the players I have been able to help. I try to share the ideas I have for the server and the ways I feel like it could improve.
In a short paragraph, please explain what you’ll bring to the server with this position and what you hope to achieve:
TL;DR of this application.. I feel in love with this server and want to see it succeed and ensure the players have the best possible experience. I know a lot about the server and Runescape and I have leadership and work ethic characteristics engrained in me from the military that would prove useful on the team. I value players input with regards to the future of the server and will always be willing to help anyone even with the smallest problems. I want to implement a system to help players be able to share their opinions on priorities of QOL and updates so that they truly feel they are a part of the server.
Do you understand that if you break rules, abuse powers, or turn out to be a horrendous Staff Member, you will be demoted and might have possible further actions taken against you depending on your actions?
Yes. Life has taught me you can do what ever you want, but you have to be willing to accept the consequences for whatever actions you decide to take.
