Name: Ben Fairbrace
In-Game Username: Scumbag
Country & Timezone (Include GMT): England GMT
Average time played per day:anywhere from 5-12 hours a day atm
What days are you available to play: Pretty much every day, i can play @ work.
When did you join AutoScape:One month ago (14 days playtime)
Why do you want to be an AutoScape staff member, and why do you feel you deserve this rank: I have an economics degree, and have worked in customer service and a retail environment in my IRL life for the past 11 years, so i feel that i could bring some professionalism to the role, as well as the fact that i am very used to assisting those who so not understand procedure as this training has been provided to me by my former IrL employer (i was a store manager for a BP petrol station and had 45+ staff members under me untill i recently started my own headshop business) as for the reason why i would like to become a helper, I would very much like to give back to a community that has provided me with many hours of fun and entertainment.
What are the top 3 qualities you have, that an AutoScape staff member should have:Patience, empathy and a good sense of humour
Have you ever been jailed/muted/banned: i dont think so !
If yes, which one, for how long and why:
If you receive a rank, would you devote hours of free time to play:i already play for 5+ hours a day, and i dont plan on stopping any time soon.
Tell us about yourself: I'm a 28 year old white dude from south london in England, I was always the "cool kid" at school but runescape has always been my secret love. I started boxing at the age of 8, and continued to box until recently when i broke both of my wrists, i still go to the gym 5 days a week but its going to be some time before i can hit anything other than a speed bag.
i have a wife and a step daughter who is 9, who i am desperatly trying to get into MMOs. i love animals and have parrots, dogs and a 700litre fish tank! oh yeah and sometimes i 420blazeit
If you were a helper
What would you do if you saw someone spamming:introduce myself and explain that spamming is not accepted here, and politely direct them to the forum to read the rules and or sell/buy the item they may be looking for. if the spamming continued after the initial conversation, there would be one more warning, if that is ignored then mute, and report to whomever i need to.
What would you do if someone was using offensive language: politely tell them that although THEY might find that kind of lanuage/humour acceptable, other people on the server might not, and also remind them there might be children playing as this is a game for everyone....if the behaviour continued it would be a mute, possibly a ban for certain things (doxxing, peadophillia, rape , other extreme cases ect) if banning is something helper have the power to do.
What would you do if someone was flaming another player: at first i would calmly intervene and ask what the issue is, to see if there is any misunderstanding i might be able to resolve before having to take actions against a player. if the abuse was completely unfounded and just straight out of line, there would be one swift warning before temp muting the offender to give them an hour to cool off. i would perhaps PM the offender before hand to give him one warning to cease or be banned. however, if 2 players are flaming and arguing over something trivial (wilderness beef ect) i would give them 2 warnings, each time asking them to take it to PM if they ignored, both get 30min mutes to cool off.
What would you do if someone was flaming a staff member: straight mute possibly jail.
What would you do if someone was posting rude comments on the forums: delete the comments immediately, and find a way to contact the player to give them fair warning that we dont not talk like that here....would be logged and if happened agin would lose forum privileges.
What would you do if you found or were informed about duped immediately contact Murci or pav via discord/ whatever means staff use for contact very discretely, so as not to inform other players of the situation, and would also tell the player that showed me or told me that they will be rewarded handsomely for their discretion while the issue is dealt with to avoid the spread of the rumor.
thank you for taking the time to read my Resume' and for your consideration
