    Read over this thread: http://www.brawl.com/threads/14752/
    If you do not meet the requirements (active, helpful, must have Discord, etc) do not apply yet; it will be an auto deny.

    What is your in-game name? - Exaggeration
    Is your Minecraft account secured and migrated? - Yes

    How old are you? - 20
    What time zone are you in? - Mountain Standard Time
    Are you multilingual? Can you speak multiple languages? - I only speak English.

    What is your experience and knowledge of Brawl? - I have been playing Brawl for about 2 years now. I almost exclusively play raid, and i have a ton of knowledge of the server. I took a pretty sizable break recently due to not having a computer to use, but now that i am back, I have begun playing the server again not too long ago. I have extremely extensive knowledge about Raid, having been on the most top and active teams since i joined the server. I am involved in the forums and have a lot of good ideas when it comes to changes to raid, chiming in a lot in the map resets when things like changing enchanting and the villager in spawn were being discussed. With my experience and knowledge of raid, i wrote a very extensive guide to help new players play raid, which I believe well reflects the experience i have and time i have put into this server. You can find that guide here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/72253/
    What is your experience with moderating servers, if any? - I have never moderated a server before! I have a very good understanding of how servers are moderated, though, and I am friends with moderations and previous moderators like MoistMayonnaise, Ritzy, and Jeenss, who have told me how the server is moderated and what they look for in potential applicants.
    Why do you want to become a moderator on Brawl? - I love this server. I spent ages looking for hardcore-styled servers that didnt have any pay to win aspects, and i couldn't find any before brawl. Any other servers my friends have tried to get me into, there is something about how enjoyable brawl, and especially raid, that has kept me coming back for close to 2 years now. I have friends i have met on here, I love the community of people that log on everyday who i get to talk to, people that I talk to on a daily basis and play other games with. Brawl has given me so many amazing and hilarious moments that I really want to do my part to help it. I am extremely thankful for Brawl and its community for being so welcoming to me, forgiving me for my mistakes (Xraying in the past) that I want to give back and help in any way I can. I want to be able to show my gratitude by moderating the server and helping to keep it new player friendly and enjoyable for the community.

    Have you ever used a hacked client before? - Yes. When i first joined Brawl, I didn't care much for the server at first. I was hopping from server to server and couldn't find one to settle on. I xrayed on Brawl for a couple weeks after joining. But, before i was banned, I met some really great people and had some good times before i finally was banned. This was the first server i wanted to come back too, and I bought an unban and told myself I wouldnt xray again. And to this day, i haven't and have absolutely no intention of continuing. I was banned about a year ago as well, which I will die on the hill that was false and I have had discussions about this ban for a long time, and it was the biggest kick in the gut for me not because of the second unban i had to buy, because it ruined my good graces with the staff team after spending so long to fix it. I do not want anyone to have a distrust in me, it has been almost 2 years since i xrayed and if you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to message me.
    Have you ever been punished (banned, kicked, muted, etc) legitimately on a public Minecraft server? If so, why? - Read above. Raid is the only server i have ever been banned on before as far as i can recall, and looking at my player history i have had a total of 4 warnings with no kicks or mutes. The last warning was on January of this year.

    What do you consider your greatest strength? - My greatest strength is by far my knowledge of the server and my willingness to help new players. It makes me so happy to see a new player do well in the server, and when i rejoined after my break it was so amazing to see the new players that had really made a name for themselves and that I had to worry about. I really enjoy trying to help new players have a good time on Raid, and with how many map resets and new bases i have built on this server, i'd say i have a pretty decent idea of how it works :wink:
    What do you consider your greatest weakness? - My greatest weakness is that I can occasionally be toxic. I have always justified this by saying Raid is a competitive server where all you're doing is trying to best someone else, and in that environment a little bit of competitive banter is ok and fun for rivalries. But, knowing this, i have made an effort to tone down my trash talk and make it purely impersonal, because nothing is more annoying to me than someone who uses real life insults to trash talk someone on a game.
    Which Brawl server(s) are you most active on? - I almost exclusively play raid, but i will occasionally play kit.

    How many Brawl staff applications have you made in the past? - I have made 3 in the past.
    What is the date of the last application you submitted? - Nov 9th, 2018
    Do you have Discord? - Yes!

    Anything else you would like to state? - I really hope that the staff team can look past possible bias's / personal issues with me and realize the fact that I have been a very active and dedicated member of this community for a long time, and within the time i was most active on the server, I have exhibited nothing but the want to help the server. With consistent ideas and debates, trying to help new players, and trying to assist the server in anyway I can. Anyway that i need to change or fix my behaviors, I am open to any constructive criticism on that, but there is no denying that I have been an extremely big part of the Raid community and my drive for wanting the help the server is easy to see. Thankyou, and if you have any questions for me feel free to message me or post your question for me below.

    You haven't had a warning in quite a long time and seem much better. You know the gamemode very well and I wish you good luck!

    Hey Exaggeration, here is my feedback:

    In-Game/Discord Activity: Hard for me to make a judgement in this area due to the fact Raid is not my main gamemode. However, you only have one day of playtime on Raid (on the account in which you are applying for). On Discord your last message in the Raid Community Discord was in early February of 2019. You do have a lot of messages overall, but I would have preferred to see more consistent activity of you contributing to discussions and such on Discord. +0

    Application: Good job here. All the questions were answered with honesty and are complete. +1

    Maturity: I have not been able to observe your character over a long period of time, but given our recent Discord conversation and your mannerisms and your friendliness, you have displayed to me you are mature enough at this time to handle a staff role. +1

    Forums Activity: This is a category I personally do not put much weight into, but it is still a requirement. Similar to what I said with regards to your Discord activity, your forums activity has a few large gaps. +0


    Overall, I do think you are a solid applicant and I would love to have more Raid staff. I am going to give you a +0.5 for now. If I am incorrect with regards to your activity as a whole feel free to message me or respond here as that would change my vote.

    Best of luck moving forward!

    <3 Thankyou man I appreciate it!

    This is extremely detailed and constructive feedback. I appreciate it a lot and will take the time to work on what you said I should! Also, the one day of playtime on raid, it resets every map, and I told you I came back after a break, so that one day is over the span of a month or so, which considering how much I work is pretty decent I think but could definitely up my playtime a bit. The real playtime amount is muuuuuch higher than that.

    What are you currently doing to contribute to Brawl? If you are promoted, what more would you do?

    Hi SoCool, merry Christmas

    To answer your questions:

    The first one is a bit hard, because I don’t want to pretend that at the moment I contribute to the server a significant amount comparable to the moderators of the server, but my biggest contribution would be that I am an active and consistent member that constantly chimes in on changes and is respected enough in the raid community to be listened to. I have always been very vocal about my praises and issues with brawl, because I care about the server and how it changes affects me and the new members. As for how I would change it if promoted is a completely different story. I want to be able to help the server by moderating chat while JMOD, and if I were to be a moderator, moderating and catching cheaters which has historically been a problem on Raid and Kitbrawl especially, the servers I am most active on. Thanks for your question!

    Hi Exaggeration,

    I liked your application, you have answered all the questions well and in detail.

    However, I think that you should become more active on the forums and on discord

    Good luck but +0 from me

    Thankyou for your feedback. Forums are something I could definitely increase activity on, but as for discord, I don’t go on it much except to talk to friends in PM’s. However, if this were something that was important for me to change I would certainly make an effort.
