You know you're not getting it.Gender:
Girl. xdPosition Requesting:
Moderator (do you guys even do SAs anymore?)Staff Experience:
Literally in every position starting 2013-07-28. Was a previous moderator on PH before quitting of my own volition.RolePlay Experience:
Since 2013-06-30. PH is my home-site. What Makes You Good Staff:
I know the ins-and-outs of PH. Even as a member, I can provide people with advice and information cordially and quickly just because I've memorised a lot of PH lore and content. I'd confidently say there are few who match me as far as just how broad my expertise on the site is. On top of that, I've never had an app go more than a single stage of review. Just submit the app into unchecked, and after at most one call with the staff member on discussing issues with the app, immediate approval--not since 2014. I'd say this shows that I also have a good grasp of boundaries, what's acceptable and what isn't, and I've continuously and constantly answered questions, given reviews and opinions, and helped people design their characters.
It's known and been discussed that I can be confrontational, but I've also shown that I'm capable of cutting back on it. When push comes to shove, I'm still there, offering help where necessary, and not just asking if help is needed; I'll take initiative to do what I can. I'll give advice in priorities, what can be done or ways to go about an issue to resolve it without just causing more issues inherently. For the most part, I've pointed out several issues in advance, sometimes they're taken into consideration, sometimes not, but I've had decent accuracy in foreshadowing.
I detailed my intentions to each staff member and even some members extensively in regards to why I'm applying for staff. I'll offer what I can to pick things back up, already putting in advice for coding, I've created graphics for some guide threads. I have a lot of assets to offer and I'm willing to put in the work.

Rules for Application:
You must be here for at least a month unless you get special permission.
You must provide two to four RP links with your character.
• [Beast Calling w/Atlas]
• [I Am Wolf w/ Mirja]
• [No Foam w/ Shio]
• [Knock Knock w /Inami]
• I know it says at least 2-4 but best I could do is eight, sorry.
You can't give higher staff trouble.
• I mean if they're being troublesome then as a degenerated human I feel it'd be my obligation to rectify that.
You should have at least 100 posts.

Moderator (training, trial, w/e)Staff Experience:
I don't have any staff experience on PH, nor do I have experience on any other site. With that being said, I don't believe it would be outside of the scope of my ability or free time. I'm well aware of the duties and responsibilities that staff members are expected to shoulder, and believe that I would shoulder them well. RolePlay Experience:
I've been around here for a good while now, so I suppose I'm starting to rack that up. What Makes You Good Staff:
In my opinion, there are a few reasons I would be a good fit for staff. Firstly, I interact well with new members, and genuinely enjoy helping them get off on the right foot. I've done this several times, and am usually one of, if not the first to welcome members to the site, and to begin helping them come up with the basis of their characters. Most of the time this ends at race selection, but a few times it hasn't. Secondly, I have a thorough understanding of how most mechanics on site are intended to function, my strong suit being tier and abilities. I'm able to create abilities which do exactly what I'd like them to, without them being considered overpowered, or ever being talked to about a nerf, and I understand the relative power level of the different tiers. I'm also good at assisting with ability creation, and give useful and constructive criticism when called for. Lastly, I'm able to devote a good deal of time to the site at the moment. I feel like this is actually one of the biggest things currently. A lot of staff has been fairly busy recently, Henrex is on sabbatical, and Chi has left. Due to this I've noticed a fair few things fall between the cracks for longer than what we'd generally aim for. I'm not saying that if I was staff that would never happen, but I am saying that.Additional Comments:
On to a question that will inevitably be asked. Why do I want to be staff, and why should I be considered for the position when I myself have said that staff should be held to a higher standard than the general member base, yet as a member I sometimes don't even meet the standards that are expected of me. (In writing this I've actually realized that this is a problem, and regardless of the outcome of this application I will most likely tone down the way I interact with chat.) As for why I'd like to be staff, I think I can help out with keeping things moving, and I genuinely love this place. I enjoy seeing it grow, adapt, settle in to a lull, and then have everything shaken up once again. So mainly, PH gives to me, and I find myself in a mood to give back. Regarding the way I present myself on PH, I'd just like to say that my actions are not indicative of my character. I also think it should be fairly common knowledge to those I associate with most that I am more than capable of setting aside any memery and being serious. Some relevant threadsKings AdventI am the Lizard KingAssault of the HollowsMysterious StrangerAdministrative Duties
If you're particularly observant you may notice that all of these threads have something in common. They were joined because it was unequivocally my duty to respond to them as captain of the fourth, as they were invasions of soul society, or because they advertised plot that would further the goals of the gotei, something that I personally feel is the duty of someone in such a position, even if not as assuredly. The last one is my own, independent furthering of the gotei's goals, and although that thread hasn't been able to come to fruition, I would still very much like to hash out all of the details of the defenses. I am of the opinion that these threads more than show that I take any duty I may have on site seriously, and that I am both invested and possess initiative.
P.S. You guys are already using my ideas, might as well get them from me.
