How long have you been on DFS?/When have you started playing on DFS? I think I started playing on November 26th 2016.
Which region are you from? I live on the east coast of the USA.
Which position are you applying for? I'm applying for server moderator.
Your DFS level. My current DFS level is 215.
Why do you want to become a staff member? I want to become a staff member on DFS because if DFS isn't fun then why even bother playing? Nobody wants the server to be filled with stun lockers, phone spammers and spawn campers, and becoming a moderator helps to make that not happen ever.
Are you currently a staff member elsewhere? No.
Past experiences as a staff member? If you call paid admin when that was around then sorta.
How active are you on DFS? If you're accepted, how active can you be on DFS? Well seeing how I'm number 6 on the playtime leader boards then I think I'm good enough for current activity, and I think my activity would not change too much if I got accepted.
Have you ever been banned from DFS before? If so, why? The only ban I can remember is a ban for abusing in late 2017 or early 2018.
Include any additional personal information about yourself that could help your application thread. I don't really know what to put here.
+ The level checks out quite a lot, seeing as you're a long time player,
- But the format is quite difficult to differentiate what's the question and what's the answer.
- The reasoning seems quite generic and somewhat dull. And considering that we have staff on the servers almost 24/7 to specifically deter any of the mentioned rule breaks, it isn't necessary.
- Your behavior is quite passive-aggressive from what I have seen. You tend to either whine if the team is dying constantly or that a bad map is picked that everybody else likes, or you begin to curse at people for breaking a rule when you could've worded it more mannerly.
This really impacts your chances of being a moderator, mostly the latter negative being your greatest adversary. I'm sorry, but I don't have any impression that you're fit for this role just yet. I vote no, but you can always change it if you're willing to do it.

Activity's good, being level 215 justifies that, and being from the USA means we can get more help on the USA servers which can be unmodded at times.
Reasoning, as Blank stated, is kind of dull and generic, and a tad too short.
The format should have a rework, because as Blank stated, again, the questions and answers are difficult to tell apart from one other.
That ban you had about abusing really impacts negatively on your chances if I say so myself, although if you can prove you can handle yourself with power, I wouldn't mind it too much, albeit being a somewhat recent ban.
One last thing, your attitude. It really changes a lot from day to day. I've seen you enough times around the server to know that you tend to lash out at players for picking bad maps, having been thrown into unbalanced comp matches, etc. And some of those times I've seen you get WAAAY too angry at them, to the point of straight up insulting them, and other times leaving the server and not coming back until it's less populated or it has changed into a map/gamemode you want, or not coming back at all.
I'm going to have to be on the fence on this one until I can see how you act nowadays on the servers properly. If I see you have changed and can behave yourself and act accordingly to any situation, I'll change my vote to a yes.
Firstly, your DFS level (being lvl 215) clearly sums up with the activity being excellent. However, the reasoning seems weak and your behavior on the servers is sometimes quite passive aggressive. Hopefully that could all change if you do some improvements now and then but still, wish you the best of luck.
Your level shows you've been around for quite some time and are nice and active, but the comments on your behaviour from Blank and Nexion give me serious cause for concern. Your reason for wanting to join focuses well on the overall role of the moderators, but it's pretty short and doesn't really show much appreciation for the responsibilities of the role.
I'd be on the fence if not for your behaviour, which really does not strike me as being suitable for the role. Nexion and Blank have already spoken enough about the problems, and I would want to see improvement in this area in order for you to become a better candidate. For now, I'm going to have to say no.

Being level 215 shows that you have a lot of enthusiasm for this server with good activity to boot, since I almost see you everyday whether it be EU or US. Speaking of, more USA Moderators can help us dearly.
The reason is kinda lacking, but you are willing to take care of the people that were mentioned, which is good.
I don't remember what you were like back when paid Admin was a thing because it was removed shortly after I joined, but my guess is that you were responsible and not abusive.
The only thing that I have a concern about is your behaviour. You seem to get a bit hot-headed and tend to be aggressive when telling people to stop grappling or stun-locking.
All in all, I'd be on the fence with this, but freshen up your attitude, and I'd be willing to give you a shot.
Thanks for applying! Unfortunately, after discussing your application with the staff, we've chosen to decline. Our main concern is your behaviour on the servers. As other staff have mentioned in this thread, your aggressive nature isn't suitable for the role. If you improve on this, you'll have a better chance next time.
