    Position(s) you are applying for:
    Moderator

    Estimated hours per week on our servers:
    20-29

    Server(s) you primarily play on:
    Easy Surf

    Are you active in the community outside of our game servers (Forums, Discord)?:
    No

    Would you commit yourself to regularly answering Call Admin pings via Discord?:
    Yes

    Days/Times of the week you are usually on:
    Monday - Friday 15-21:00, Weekends 14-23:00, timezone UTC +2

    What unique qualities would you bring to the position(s) you are applying for?:
    Unique? When the current admins are on the server they usually do a good job at keeping things in control and I don't see myself adding much uniqueness in that sense (besides having Finnish as a native language).

    But the problem is that the majority of the admins (if not all of them?) are from US. The server is quite vulnerable to trolls during "EU hours" . I'm usually active very early on during the day and spend quite a lot of time on my computer. My unique quality would be activeness on the "quieter hours". I have noticed that when I come home from work it's usually early morning or working hours in the US.

    I am also very objective when it comes to enforcing rules. I don't let personal feelings affect my judgement. More on this below.

    Have you ever had any administrative action taken upon you?:
    No

    Any additional information that is relevant:
    I work as a foreman at a local machine shop and do part time gigs as substitute teacher, teaching kids from ages 11 to 15. I am well experienced in enforcing rules. I have experience in resolving conflicts and I don't like getting personally involved in any drama etc.

    The server has been more and more active during EU hours and I would like to see this trend continue. Though I am worried that the lack of moderation is steering people to different servers. Too often a healthy conversation has been interrupted by a random user "jokingly" shouting the n-word with a distorted mic. Of course that user can be muted, but that rarely happens (people usually start to argue with the troll, steering the focus away from any original conversation).

    I have been an active member since the end of 2018 and surf exclusively on sneaK servers.

    PS. To elaborate on the "No" in "Are you active in the community outside of our game servers (Forums, Discord)?": I am on the Discord server and often skim through the voice channels, but rarely I see people there. I am not a heavy-user of the text chat.
