Why do you want to become staff?
As you can tell from my previous experiences listed above it is clear that I personally enjoy being a staff member and I consider a hobby. Despite myself not being a staff member on the biggest servers (My experience is more saturated to smaller/unknown servers). However, I have been staffing on Minecraft Servers for more than 2 years so I am not new to this and I have been in multiple situations such as being ddosed/doxed throughout my tenure. I am not inexperienced and I do not crack under situations that some may consider impossible to get through.)

Helping Others
As you can tell from my experience above it is clear that I like to be a staff member. The main reason that I've wanted to be a staff member is to help everyone out and to help fellow Staff Members alike! I like to help people with their questions and any concerns that they may have as I have been in most players dilemmas especially when I started playing Minecraft. I also like to do what I can to help the community and to make it better. This could be from helping in chat or helping someone fix a bug and report it.

Staff Members
Also as you can tell from above, I like working with other people. I also like to help other people make the community better, whether that's from suggesting new ideas or helping someone else make their idea a reality, it's all the things that I enjoy doing. I especially enjoy helping others out and I like it when others help me too. Working as a part of a team to make the player's experience a huge priority for any Staff Team in my opinion and I believe I can contribute immensely.

Punishing Rule Breakers
There are a lot of people that spam chat and encourage spam by asking questions. This can get quite annoying in chat and I know that other people have felt that frustration, I have been in this position multiple times.

Professionalism is the basis of being a good staff member yet it is very hard for some people to master and takes multiple years to grasp. I believe after my countless years of staffing on Minecraft Servers I have grasped this concept and I believe this is a major strength for me

I am very good at my literacy, my predicted grade for English GCSEs is an A/B. I believe being exceptional at literature is an essential requirement of becoming a staff member as if you don’t have aren’t good at literature would confuse someone or you could misread a question by a player.

I will summarize it here: I want to not only help out the server but help out the players. When staff is not online is when the most questions are being asked, and I would like to be there to fill in the empty gap when staff isn’t on. While helping them I would also be punishing rule-breakers to keep the chat clean. From prior experiences in 2018, I've learned a lot of things while being a staff member. I've listed the most important servers that I was staff on, but I was also staff on many other smaller server. I've seen a lot, from terrible management to dumb questions. I can understand that some people might not know how to word a question or even don't understand much about the topic that they're trying to ask about, but I assure you that I will try my best to help the player with their question. I can be very outgoing and helpful when asked a question, and I'll try to get an answer as quickly as I can, even if I don't know it. As said before, I have previous experience, therefore I know most protocols when dealing with someone, whether it's a mute, kick, ban, so on and so forth.

As a potential staff member, describe how you would make a difference on the Vortex Network? I believe I can make an immense difference on the VortexPvP by making sure there is always a staff member on the server for players to ask for help. I believe I can contribute to this aspect immensely due to being on a timezone not a lot of staff members are from and I've noticed that there is only around 1 Helper on at times with more than 200 players on and I want to help lessen that gap. Furthermore, I am an extremely positive person in general and I've been in a lot of troubling situations myself and I am able to relate to a lot of people that could be pissed off. Adding on to the point, helping is one of the things I truly enjoy and I consider it a hobby. I can socialize with others in a jokingly manner, however, can be serious and firm it is required. Finally, I am pretty good at settling disputes between players before they escalate into something more.

Very well written and thought out helper application, and i can see you have had many experiences with being a authoritative figure before. However your play time is a bit lacking. Other than that i think you would make a good addition to the VortexPvP Staff team.
P.s. Add a little bit more in the tell us about yourself, we would love to know more about you. So we can relate to you on a personal matter
