Questions

Why are you applying?
Even though it’s a bit cliché to say, I'm applying because I still enjoy playing Wonder.

Since the “nuke” happened, it caused a reset, which actually made Wonder back to the community I loved. I enjoyed playing Wonder of course, but then it hit a phase of complete inactivity, just a few Staff members, lack of decent management, and no new features. Now that we’re under new management, it’s a better experience than before.

I enjoy welcoming new players into the servers. I try my best to make everyone feel a part of the community because when I joined the community for the first time, the person who actually made me feel welcome was, believe or not, Downpicker (Ciribiribela). Him welcoming me into the Discord stuck with me and made me want to be welcoming to other new players.

Mainly, I want to come back to the Staff team so I can help out the community once again like I used to.

Do you have any previous experience administrating?
Yes, as you may be aware, I do have a good amount of previous experience. I was admin for European Studs from September 2016 - May 2020. I was moderator for Wonder from May - April, then admin from August 2020 - January 2021.

If you have previous experience can we confirm it and where would we do so?

Why should we choose you over all other applicants?

I should be chosen over other applicants because I’m a very well-known member of this community. I was a very active Staff member, I have more admin and TF2 experience than most applicants and current Staff.

Being the owner of two other TF2 servers, I understand the difficulties of trying to run a community, it takes delegation and communication. I also know everything related to SourceBans, like adding Staff and VIPs, etc.

DTX and I tried to get the Staff team to have meetings to discuss possible new features, events, or any problems, but it never got implemented. I know how to collaborate with the Staff team to get things done. When punishments were incorrect on SourceBans, I would point that out to the Staff member who executed the punishment.

Overall, I’m very good at being an admin or moderator.

What personality traits do you possess?
Now, I know you’re not really supposed to “copy” your previous application, but not much has changed with my personality traits. So, I’ll be elaborating on the same ones I used previously.
  1. Chill
  2. Considerate
  3. Responsible
  4. Lenient
  5. Risible
Elaborate your chosen traits
Chill:
I’ve been told that I’m a more “chill” person to talk to. “Chill” meaning I remain calm while dealing with a dispute because adding extra anger doesn’t help the situation. I can also talk with other Staff members to collaborate or help out with a problem.

Responsible: If I do something wrong, I’ll be honest and report myself for doing it. For example, my most recent comm block was because I randomly mashed my keyboard as a joke and accidentally said the homophobic slur word. I then reported myself to Staff because I felt like it was the proper thing to do.

Risible: I laugh at almost everything. I feel that it’s quite important to have a sense of humor. I may joke around with my friends and all, but my intent is never to disrespect anyone. Even though I laugh at most things, I can still be very serious when it’s needed.

How would you improve the community?
I would improve this community by solving disputes, helping players with any concern they may have, suggesting improvements to the Discord such as an invite logger to see who invites who which could help pinpoint alt accounts. I can answer questions Staff have about commands such as guard banning or punishment lengths. I can lighten the workload that the other Staff have, like creating custom roles, editing the rules (due to the current rules being made by agro and myself), or any other job someone needs me to do.

How have you helped the community up until now?
I’ve helped the community by being a constant member and helper for Wonder.

I’ve helped Staff with many punishment commands and guidelines. I’ve helped new players with rule clarification before I was even Staff. When Staff would make a mistake on a punishment, like the wrong reason or incorrect length, I would inform them of said mistake.

I was one of the two that made the current rules, as stated above. While making the rules, we asked around the community what needed to be clarified specifically. Why I brought up the rules is because we made sure to tailor the rules around the community and not just what we felt was correct.

Can you work under somebody who is younger than you?
Yes, I am able to work for someone younger than me without any trouble.

Have you applied to any other community in the past month?
No, I have not.

P. S.
Regarding my “story time” appeal.
I was randomly banned without reason so I made that “shitpost” appeal as a joke. Even though it was a joke, it was backed up by events that happened. I think reading that appeal, you could understand my frustration towards the situation that occurred. As I explained to Rotary after he declined it, I obviously could have handled it more maturely than I did, but I was caught up in the moment and I sincerely apologize for my actions.

P. P. S.
Thank you to Lynical and M1ghtymouse for their background vocals in the special presentation that is my voice recording.

Hello Mr. Patrick, from our past experience there have been problems but you were the one to tell me to apply. We don't wanna be personal here; you did a great job as staff previously and I'm not going to say who (Rotary) seemed to dislike that you were creating another community and "stealing our members", other than all that you would be a great staff member once again. I don't see your recent server ban/discord ban as a bad thing because (Rotary) obviously had something against you after moonrock V2, only issue I really have is the personal things but I wont use that against you.

Hello patillian

You already know my answer but I do have to add something to it. You were an amazing staff member when I was first accepted, you helped me when I didn't know something and overall were just extremely helpful. I am happy you chose to apply again! And I'm sure everybody feels the same way.

Thank you Mr. Xavier for your respectful words.

Yes, we've had our personal issues with one another, and due to that, I thought you'd be a definite -1. I am honored by the way you didn't include any personal disputes in your response or vote on my application. I heavily appreciate that.

Cheers!

Aww thanks Leonard! 😊

I'm always free to help, unless I'm making another absolutely amazing voice recording.

Great vocal performance by the way, Mr. Phineas.

Mister Patrick Houle. I'm sure I can speak for most (if not all) of us to say that we are happy you have returned. Due to your previous administration skills, both on different servers and on this server, I'm sure you will play a huge part in this new Wonder.tf experience we're having. I cannot wait to see you back on the staff team.

Now here's something uncommon. Due to the 3 -1's on my previous applications you gave me that I am extremely salty about, you get a
-1!







+1, Best of luck with the rest of your votes 😁

You were good as an admin and I don't see why you shouldn't be a member of our team again since you were demoted from a stupid person for a stupid reason.

If you want to come back as an admin you are welcomed, as you can see.

Thank you Quirkal. Much love.

You’re also dissing ex-staff manager! Don’t do that!
