How much time can you dedicate to playing as CP per week? 28

Explaination of previous offences
N/A

Why should be you whitelisted for this role
I am active, competent, and knowledgeable. I have all the time in the world. I actively inform/answer questions from new CP regardless. I take my own initiative to get things done, when I'm not being ordered, within the bounds allowed to me. In particular, I'd like to organize the AirWatch a little more with this role - scanner PTs formed with grids who ask for scanners to use, more active BOLs from targets the scanners alert the radio to (and just in general; nobody ever responds to radio requests usually), generally just making the AirWatch more of an actual, organized presence. Apart from that, I can offer consistent and high-quality roleplay, people management skills, and effort. You want leadership and combat capabilities? They're here. For leadership, that's already evident. I have a tendency to lead people subconsciously, even without a rank; directing new people, organizing things (like I've been attempting with AirWatch), keeping order when people get toxic, etcetera. You want combat capabilities? I've been playing this game for 6k+ hours and used to main on military RP servers and PvP sandbox servers. I can drill your civil protection in actual combat tactics from much more organized servers. Or explain it in about 15 seconds to a group people with no training. Imagine: an impromptu advanced firing line in the OTA armory during a nexus raid. That should say enough about my ability to click on peoples' heads.

Previous experience as Civil Protection
Pretty much everything since the moment I could unlock it. I like being AirWatch as a Grid the most, and making various hardpoints. I play Union when I feel like patrolling. I play Helix when I see big things going on, like a particularly rowdy Civil Unrest with lots of anti-citizen contact. I don't, however, really play Jury much - only occasionally, but feeling like a detective can be fun. I've played pretty much approximately half Combine and half Citizen for the entirety of my time here.

(Scenario) A UNION i2 unit is saying Bouncer bouncer! Bouncer bouncer! 6 9 Haha. to a group of civilians, that seems to be engaged in jumping around, dancing, and playing loud Slavic music on their microphones. How do you respond?
I unholster my stunstick, quickly approaching the crowd. First I address the Union i2, stating "Union! Suspend. Return to your duties."
If the Union does not comply, I quietly take him aside into the nexus for reeducation and order nearby officers to deal with the civilians. This would entail informing him of the proper conduct, his error, and most likely a corrective beating.
If he yet still does not comply, termination is a possibility.

Depending on the officer's reaction, assuming he complies and returns to his duties, I can then turn my attention to the crowd. First, I would state, "Citizens! Disperse" after raising and igniting my stunstick in a show of force, followed by a local ooc chat reminder that micspam is a no-no and that a report is likely to follow if they continue. If the citizens do not disperse, then I would arrest/detain the noncompliant ones (with the help of nearby CPs, if they're there) and have them all apply, then bring them in to a terminal after a search.

ORIGINAL ANSWER:

"Union! Suspend. Return to your duties."
"Citizens! Disperse."

If they do not comply, re-education, sentencing, and/or possibly termination could follow.


(Scenario) A JURY i1 unit runs into Sector C’s 404 entrance without any accompanying units during Civil status. What is your reaction?
Foreword: This is written under the assumption that CZ is the 404 zone due to the number of text screens I see on a daily basis that say as much.
With a heaving sigh, I turn my head to the sound of footsteps behind me. I see a lone Jury i1 unit, foraying into the construction site with an air of purpose - as if he were on some task. Quickly, I hasten after the unit, shouting "Jury! Halt!" and unholstering my weapon, as I've entered an unsafe area. As the Jury i1 turns to face me, I quickly start off, reminding the stray unit that Civil Protection may only enter this area with an accompanying patrol team as I escort him out. (mostly for their own safety as the area is known to be used as an ambush spot by groups of anti-citizens.) I would do so in a calm manner, as this CP has committed no major offense; it's usually a misunderstanding that can be corrected with a stern talking to - which he receives after we briskly march out of the gate, back into the safety of the main city. For good measure, I would probably even state a reminder in the radio about this, to help prevent similar things from happening in the future.

ORIGINAL ANSWER: Chase after him, then remind him that he should be accompanied by a PT for his own safety. I wouldn't be mad, I'd simply escort him back out. If his excuse is that he was chasing someone, I would remind him that a group of anticitizens could be hiding in ambush just around the corner. Could be a trap.

Extra notes:
I do not use voice chat. I am text only.

I confirm Yes
I agree Yes

Do not confuse attempting to be concise with low effort. If you'd like, I can edit it and draw the application out to the text limit.

There is a difference between lacking in effort, and answering what was asked of you without any unnecessary fluff.

An answer being short is not indicative at all, especially with the scenarios.

If you see a group of civilians dancing around with a cp, are you seriously going to stop and type a 100 word essay to them? No. You're going to say something very similar to what I put in my answer. The question asked what I'd do, and that's what I'd do.

Please post when you find a real issue.

We don't want filler. But come on, you can't expect to write so little. Elaborate! Get into the details of each scenario, and add to the main section.

That's simply unrealistic. On the server, you'll find it would go down pretty much exactly like that. Furthermore these are pretty simple scenarios to begin with. It's not exactly a rebel insurgency plot, you're stopping to yipe at some unruly citizens.

Uhm, just because other people choose to draw their applications out like they're trying to fill the word requirement on a middle school essay they don't want to write, doesn't mean you should too.

So far, I have yet to see a single legitimate criticism from any of you. Name one requirement I didn't meet. Go on.

If you're just going to keep on denying the criticism we give you then I'll just leave the decision up to Zack. You did the bare minimum, simple as that.

Thing is, it looks a lot to me like I've successfully denied it, and you're out of ammunition with nothing real to refute my points with. You're right, we should wait for someone who knows what they're talking about to offer their input.

I mean, as long as you don't have anything to do, I guess that makes sense, but this can quickly lead to burnout, which is bad

This is really bare bones and doesn't elaborate on your Leadership/ Combat capabilities

Just as the Main-Section, this is really Bare-Bones

So, your first response to a jury breaking a server rule and running into the sewers, is to break the rule aswell... yeah definitely

So, you wanted constructive criticism? Here is some.
App is really bare-bones and you just did the minimum, and you are very defensive when it comes to people criticising you.
And my verdict is fairly Simple:
-Support
Hope that helped.

Actual criticism, thank you for it. 1 capable person out of 4 isn't bad. See, this I can use to improve it.

Also, I was under the impression that CZ/404 Zone are the same thing. I've seen countless text screens on the fences calling it the 404 zone. I did not write that saying I'd run into the sewers. In my head, I imagined they were a few dozen meters past the CZ gates.

If your only real criticism is, still, "unga bunga not enough words" - I'll be more than happy to write you a novel. Give me a bit.

If you're really going to be that arrogant I'll ask you one question, what makes you think this app is good? You wrote 108 words in the main section. If you cared for the role you would actually put some effort into the app. Getting defensive at some simple criticism is not a good sign of an OfC, I'd almost expect you to lash out and shoot at a citizen for calling you incompetent in-game.

Pardon? It fit the requirements already at the moment of posting. What are you on about? They're just mad because it was the minimum requirement. I actually ended up shaving it down to be more concise, because I figured concise would be appreciated. Turns out you wanted a wall of text - well, you're barking up the right tree for that. I breathe walls of text.

Listen, there's no reason to sling toxic slurs like that. You can act like an adult here.
Review the app again. You'll see I've humored you.
I have every right to refute your claims. Don't criticize unless you're prepared to defend what you say. Yours was not simple criticism, nor was it even constructive. Take Gaming_Supreme's reply for example; informative, constructive, and helpful whilst still getting their point across. You on the other hand have resorted to petty insults after having your views challenged... That's a sign of a not-very-good OfC.

Do not listen to those who want a wall of text
The main section states what Zack wants to know which is good
Scenarios u took them literally what would you do but that is not a problem i guess
In conclusion +support
Guys you all need to stop wanting OFC apps to be a writing contest only
