Out-Of-Character Questions -
Previous experience as Civil Protection (if any):
I’ve only played Impulse in terms of HL2RP, but I’ve mained CP ever since the opportunity arose. Staying firmly in the Helix division, I like giving my squad support from the backlines and serving an essential purpose of not dying. That isn’t to say I haven’t participated in my fair share of sacrifice codes. Wanna say ~15 of my 130 hours on the server is spent off CP by itself.
Previous Server Offenses (e.g. Warns, kicks, bans, etc.) in the last two weeks [Optional: If applicable, feel free to explain any offenses]:
I was warned for frying myself in the jailhouse incinerator as a CP around when I had 70 hours, this was on the 4th of November.
It was 1:57 AM according to the time on it, so I thought it’d be cool to go out with a bang. I’d appeal if it I could.
Why should you be whitelisted for this role? (minimum 250 words):
I've had most of my command experience in Warhammer 40k RP, I've had a /lot/ of experience leading 20-30 people in fairly loud and hectic situations. Most of my learning stems from following higher-ups around and catching on to their mannerisms and habits. When there's no SqL around, which doesn't happen frequently, people tend to listen to my requests to have them do tasks. Though I've had my squeaky clean record tarnished by a bad decision, I've since learned to always conduct one's self as if a higher-up is always watching. With that mindset in mind, I'd say if you compared me to how I acted a good week and a half or so ago, you'd see a marked difference in general competence. I leave my fun and zany dialogue for when I play citizen. I've been praised by SqLs here and there about my ability to take initiative in high-stress situations and the Helix DvG can likely attest to my readiness to go above and beyond when it comes to the roleplay aspect. My 6,100+ XP would also help highlight my ability to function properly. I've trained a lot of people who are fresh to the CP job, ins and outs, proper forum posts for radio codes and whatnot. In the rare instances I have a moment to lead, I jump in and direct the other units. Guard here, reminding them to report DB counts and join PTs. My activity is fairly consistent throughout the week, so inactivity won't be an issue. There's always something to do on the server, and I've learned how to curve burnout from my years of roleplay experience.
Tell us what you can bring to the table, why should you be a Squad Leader?:
What leadership qualities do you have, how would you conduct your subordinates during chaotic times (e.g. Civil Unrest / JW), and what are key leadership mindsets and philosophies would you stick to / adhere to for the Squad Leader role and position?:
I have many leadership qualities including…
-Led a group of OTA during a JW, gave movement and attack orders from behind, being a Helix, I kept my squad in working shape throughout.
-Willing to take criticism of all kinds and grow from it.
-I try to lead by example, be a leader a unit can feel they can ask questions and learn from.
-I constantly scheme when it’s calm, thinking up solutions to problems that haven’t cropped up yet.
