Minecraft Name: _blumacaw_

Timezone: central

Availability (we need active staff): I have a bunch of free time as I don't do many activities!

Why do you want to be an admin on The Spawn: I love the community and all the players on the server, I want to help keep the server running so this wonderful place can stay strong. It excites me to see more and more people join everyday and watch the server grow and I would absolutely love to help the server as it thrives. I know quite well not to abuse my power (as me and my town have been personally been affected by an admin abusing their powers and never want that to happen again) and use what I can do to help others out to the best of my abilities!

How long have you played Minecraft as a whole: 4 years total

What can you bring to the Admin team: I love seeing this server continue to grow and I want to bring all that I can to help it stay strong and thrive. I believe that I can bring good problem solving skills and lots of time and effort to help anyone who needs it. I really don't have conflicts with anyone on the server and I work with others quite well!

Are you available on Skype to be added into an Admin group chat:  Yep!

Any other information you'd like to add that you think we should consider for your application: I have past experience of being staff on a server! I would love this job because I hate seeing problems come up and theres no mod/admin on to help fix it, and I want to help but I dont have the authority to. I also hosted a very small server a while ago but I took it down due to everyone becoming inactive.

  • Guest
Minecraft Name: Deathblight
Timezone: Central Standard Time
Availability (we need active staff): Going to college, so I'll likely be less available after September 6th, but over the summer I should be available most days, for most of the day, and when school starts, I should still be able to make daily, or every-two-day, checks on the server.
Why do you want to be an admin on The Spawn: I would like to be an administrator because of all the servers I've played on, I'd have to rank this server in my top three in terms of enjoyment. I'm a factions player, but at heart I appreciate the chance to build and create, so factions wasn't exactly my thing, with constant raids and combat. But here, on The Spawn, I can help build and create a town and community of people with the common goal of simply building the best structures and towns we can. Its something I've never felt before on Minecraft, and I would like to ensure that many other people can enjoy this as well. I would like to be administrator so I can do my best to ensure the longevity of the server itself.
How long have you played Minecraft as a whole: ChaiBubbleTea and I started together in the beginning of middle school, so about 6-7 years ago.
What can you bring to the Admin team: Above all else, I hold honesty and responsibility to be most important. I am more than willing to act as both the hand of the law, and the olive branch, managing conflicts, and directing others. But at the same time, I am adept at delegating responsibility, as well as being very inclusive of the new players of the server.
Are you available on Skype to be added into an Admin group chat: I am available on both Skype and Discord.
Any other information you'd like to add that you think we should consider for your application: I am very good at organization, as well as system creation. I am very willing to work on the codes, and innate systems, editing and perfecting them towards the betterment of the server. For many groups and teams that I've led, I may not have been the most outspoken member of the team, but I am usually integral in keeping the team organized, on task, and efficient.

ChaiBubbleTea

  • Guest
Minecraft Name: ChaiBubbleTea
Timezone:US Central Standard Time
Availability (we need active staff):Im on every day for a couple of hours (3-4). Usually on when staff members are not present deep into the night. I will also be able to make frequent checks on the server.
Why do you want to be an admin on The Spawn: I found this server about a week ago and have since become fully addicted to it. I enjoy many of the aspects of the server and all of the features that it includes. Before this server, I played a lot of factions on a different server and found the community to be a lot more toxic and not enjoyable. On The Spawn, I find the community to be very nice and welcoming to everyone on the server. In the past, I have a lot of experience with running factions and towns on other servers and have become well-experienced with being a leader. As mayor of the town Kush, I have already gained a sense of leadership and responsibility on this server. Currently, I am recruiting for my town and have helped a lot of players get started on the server. I did this by inviting them into my town community and providing them with a quick tutorial on the jobs and towny plugins. I would like to be admin on The Spawn because I enjoy the feeling of being able to help new members. On Minecraft servers, first impressions are the most important thing as it decided whether a new player will continue to play the server or quit. I want to be able to make a huge impact on this first impression, so that more people will realize how great The Spawn community is.
How long have you played Minecraft as a whole: Death and I started 7 years ago.
What can you bring to the Admin team:I believe that I will be able to provide a sense of maturity for the staff team on The Spawn, as a lot of the players are of younger age. Due to my many years of having played Minecraft on many different server, I have picked up a sense about how many different types of Minecraft servers are run and managed. As a part of the staff on The Spawn, I have many great ideas and input that will help make the server even better than it already is.
Are you available on Skype to be added into an Admin group chat: Yes
Any other information you'd like to add that you think we should consider for your application: Having played Minecraft for 7 years now, I have helped some of my friends startup servers of their own as part of their dev teams. I know a thing or two about coding and am happy to provide my input for a lot of the server's current features. Im also very good at communicating with people and solving conflicts as that is a very common problem when dealing with factions or new servers. Socially, I will be able to better improve the overall community and make sure that the chat stays clean and friendly :)!

Minecraft Name: StoutyAlex

Timezone: GMT

Availability (we need active staff): Almost everyday. however around late july/first half of august I will be on holiday.

Why do you want to be an admin on The Spawn: Having only being a member for 4 days I have grown to really enjoy playing on here. It reminds me of hosting my own servers back in the day of Alpha and Beta. I have played many times on my own in single player and thought, why don't I find a small server with a good community and join, and thats just what I did and am glad. I would love to help keep the server up to par with my experience of running minecraft servers as well as playing a bigger part in the community and server evolution as a whole.

How long have you played Minecraft as a whole: Ever since playing on browser in creative only mode, probably around 2010.

What can you bring to the Admin team: Experience. I have hosted 4 Servers in the past 7 years. some failed because of the growing popularity of mini game servers and with me not being as into the game at the time with uni and college in my life. I have hosted 1 towny server and been a co-owner of another. Ran with my friend and youtuber who had a small 15 minutes of fame. Channel was "Minecraft Community" i think. I ran a prison server called "Prosecuted" back then prison servers were gritty and pvp based and I loved it. Convicted was the only big server at the time and I started in competition against them with other members of convicted. From there I made videos about stuff on my youtube channel called "StoutyAlex" (have a look, my old Minecraft server videos are on there including my prison server). I have played with many plugins and am familiar with commands and limits of them and ways to use them. (bare in mind this was a while ago things may of changed), tl;dr: Played alot, long time reliable, mature and experienced.

Are you available on Skype to be added into an Admin group chat: Yes, however skype is weird for me I prefer discord but either is cool.

Any other information you'd like to add that you think we should consider for your application: no not really, I think I have rambled on a little too much. I hope you enjoyed reading my application, if not learning a little more about me :)

Thank you,

Alex Stout

===========================================================


Basic Info:
Hi there judge(s) of my staff application. So let me start with the basic information that you need. My IGN (in game name) is KezzySenpai. So far, I have been playing for about a few days to be honest but I have talked with many people online and I am online for about sessions lasting 2-3 hrs at a time. This is not daily. If you are looking for how long I can be on daily, I would have to estimate around 4-5 hrs on an open and free day. Should I be busy, I would possibly estimate my daily log-in time to be 1-2 hr(s). Also regarding time, I am on Pacific Standard Time in the US. For communication, I am open to Discord and Skype. Please note that as we speak, my computer version of Skype is somehow broken and I am working to fix it already. You can still use skype to contact me as I have the app on my mobile device.

Little About Me:
I am a server developer and I enjoy playing around with plugin configs; testing out how changing a line of code makes a difference in the game and on the server(s). Working behind the scenes (dev work) is my strongest skill when it comes to server work. I can work well with people and in groups and I am becoming better at my people skills (not yelling at some players when explaining simple mechanics of the game/plugins). I have found that I get a better understanding of problems when it has to deal with plugins and such. When it just comes down to player moderation, I can get a little upset very quickly should the person I'm helping not fully understand what I'm saying or they are completely ignoring my helpful instructions. So from this little bio on me, I hope this helps you understand just some of my traits.

Last bit of info:
I have played Minecraft for probably 5 or 6 years? You lose count after being on countless server and helping out around the community. So just what can I bring to the staff team? Well, as I have stated before, I have worked around the community and I have found things here and there that can both kill/help a server greatly. So what I can offer to you is a developers perspective on whether or not the server should follow through on a plan(s). With all this said now, I have nothing else that I wish to mention here. I thank the those who took the time to carefully read my application as it means a lot to me. Once again, thanks and I will see you online :D

Any other information you'd like to add that you think we should consider for your application:I have been an admin on one other server, and I have been a  trusted player on multiple other servers. I hope you'll take everything I've said into consideration and accept my application. I will be a good admin.:)
