Reason for Applying (issues you see w/ the community, how you would like to address them, what you think you can do to help, etc):
I’ve been playing games online for as long as I can remember, and Chivalry has brought me the type of joy I haven’t felt in years. I have always strived to push for an inclusive, non-toxic, mature atmosphere without inhibiting gameplay. There are plenty of times I have witnessed slurs, bullying, and harassment in game, mostly all which goes unpunished. Convincing the server to report the user(s) and muting them in game only goes so far when the harassment and/or griefing continues. For the number of hours, I play and stream this game, this is too regular of an issue.
I’m quite capable of helping people grow when they make mistakes, sticking to process instead of letting emotions guide me, something that has developed and been refined over the years. My activity in all aspects of Chiv, in game and out has let my actions build a reputation of being fair yet firm. I would be willing to help in whatever capacity I could which includes but not limited to: record, report, assess, mod, and/or admin in servers; to actively curb griefing, intentional tk’ing, chat spam, abusing votekick, racism & persistent bullying, and general toxicity and overwhelming rudeness.
Relevant Experience: (if any – moderation/community management on other games/websites or technical experience, etc)
I’ve been a mod for gaming communities since CS 1.6, including Day of Defeat Source, Battlefield: Bad Company, Rainbow Six Siege. I didn’t know another medieval fps came out after Age of Chivalry until Chiv 2 - to my pleasant surprise. I have mediated disagreements between clans and individuals within the Chiv 2 community. I am also one of the drafters of the Chiv 2 Competitive Constitution to ensure sportsmanship as well as no tolerance for racism, homophobia, or any slurs from anyone who participates in the Chiv 2 competitions or the clans, in game and well as out of game interactions with other members of the community. I document griefers and others that break official server rules.
Professionally I am in committees at work overseeing and ruling on Operations Improvement, Inclusivity, and internal Mediation. Part of my job is being a program manager, overseeing a portfolio of software products. I empower others to be the best versions of themselves and to continuously grow.
I am also one of the leaders at LK, helping Łк Hero of Ages achieve the goal to maintain a Civil community in the game we enjoy as well as help it grow.
@Fatal-Bullet-4U can I just say it doesn’t help your case when you say unnecessary shade like “The devs don’t care”. These are benign gestures and I don’t believe serve your feedback or argument. Reinflate those floaties and jump back in the pool. It’s a party in here 🎉🥳!
