Past Experiences: Never been a staff member for any of the prominent wide public gaming communities like XGC, but I was one of the admins for the CSGO club/society in my University for 2 years, therefore I believe I have acquired an idea about the general management and handling of servers as well as the players. I also used to manage around 3-4 servers for CS:S in the previous years (Yes, I know. Very sad joke).
How much time per week can you dedicate to moderating?: Depends on the workload I receive since I am doing research in University but I believe around 10-12 hours per week more or less. If I am free from work then maybe upto 16 hours.
What qualities do you have that stand out above others? : Communication skills, past experiences and the ability to handle problems and disputes are one of the few strong qualities I can display confidently. Apart from these, I can definitely stay calm and take judgement accordingly if given the opportunity. Also, most of the time I am always online on my PC as well as Discord, so I believe I would be able to answer any problems posted by the people in the community and take action quickly. After working as an admin for my previous University, I also have a good grasp on how public servers are handled, managed and maintained.
Why should we choose you over another applicant?: In terms of raw abilities, skills etc. I am not a hero as compared to others but as a fellow supporter and a big fan of the XGC servers / community I would definitely want to make a difference and provide a hub for the other players to enjoy and play without any problems from cheaters / hackers.
A player has been reported for cheating, you are the first staff member to join the server. Other players think he/she is fishy but you cannot get hard evidence on them, what should you do?: If I am the first member to join, then firstly I will spectate the suspected player for a given amount of time (between 15-30 minutes in general) and definitely record his gameplay to obtain an idea about his skill level and mechanics. Sometimes it may be difficult to accuse the suspect if he/she is presumably using a trigger-bot. I will also try to get a bit more background information from the other players on the server and try to analyse the situation a bit more. Informing the admins and other moderators will also be a priority since in cases like these there is no obvious way to find that the given player is hacking. If it was not possible to prove that the player was not cheating and it was a fake call, I will file the recording and not take any action. But if I find concrete proof of the player cheating, then I will record the evidence, inform the admins and issue him with a temporary ban.
You join the server to play a few rounds of executes and one of the players starts to harass you and infuriate you, he ignores your instructions to stop, how do you handle this? : I will definitely avoid communicating with him since there will always be players who will trash-talk and insult others. If he continues this relentlessly, then I will mute him without paying more attention. But, if any racist comments are passed directing either to me or to any of the other players then I will definitely warn him once. If he still continues, then I will give one final warning otherwise kick him from the server (Depending on the severity of the comments and his/her behaviour). Also, I will do the same if he unnecessarily starts breaking the server rules - such as flanking (I will definitely record him first before taking any action as evidence).
