Admin Application

Format for applying for admin.



HOUSE OF CLIMB ADMIN APPLICATION


Thank you for being part of our community and taking an interest in becoming an admin, there are a few requirements you must be aware of before submitting an application. This thread will address those requirements. (Please no trolling in your app. I will likely decline it outright.)

REQUIREMENTS

English - Applicants are required the demonstrate the ability to write English fluently.
Age - Although there are no specific age requirements in becoming an admin, it is required that you sound, write and act maturely when performing admin related tasks. This includes following all server(s) related rules and setting an example for other players to follow.
Player Time - We expect all applicants to have played on the servers for a reasonable amount of time. We don't tell you what this is and expect you to figure out what amount of time would be appropriate.
Previous Infractions - Previous player incidences will greatly reduce the chances of an application success if there is not a valid reason why the infraction(s) were received in their application.
Friendliness - Players will only be accepted if they are friendly and willing to help newer players with issues, this includes on the forums as well.
Microphone - Again, this is not a specific requirement, but it would be greatly appreciated if you had a microphone at the ready when required.

Once your application is successful, you must be able to follow these simple rules:

ADMIN RULES

Activeness - Admins are required to remain active on their specified server(s) and forum, if this isn't achieved, or if an admin becomes inactive, they will be retired.
SourceBans - Admins must provide as much information as possible regarding a ban made via sourcebans. It is highly recommended that you record a demo of an incident as your actions may be questioned at a later date.
Progression - Admins are expected to improve upon themselves continuously. If it is believed that an admin isn't progressing or declining in performance or conduct, they will be removed.
Instructions - Admins must be able to take criticism professionally when given, and be expected to perform commands given to them by management at all times, even ones they don't agree with.
Decision Making - There are times when management may be offline and you are left alone, you must be able to solve problems to the best of your ability and make quick decisions when called upon.
Reports - Admins are the gateway for players to report issues regarding the servers to management. If a player encounters a problem and reports it to an admin via the server, you must report this incident on the forums immediately. This includes any problems encountered as listed above.

It is important to understand that becoming an admin is a thankless job for the most part, and you can't please all players at once with the decisions you make. You must be able to create an atmosphere that the majority of players will enjoy playing in and represent House Of Climb positively. If you feel you can perform all these tasks and meet the specified requirements listed above, then please post an application ticket in the form of a template below.
