How long have you been on DFS?/When have you started playing on DFS?
According to my server profile, I currently log in at 14 days, 12 hours and 25 minutes of playtime. I first discovered the server in the midst of 2017 after using teamwork.tf's map browser and noticing that the server was running two of my maps; dm_flood2 and dm_towerleap.
Which region are you from?UK
Which position are you applying for? (Server Moderator, Developer, Discord Moderator)
Your DFS level107
Why do you want to become a staff member?
First of all, this is the kind of TF2 server I've always wanted to be involved in; great content variety without being insane, zero toxicity (from what I've seen) and a welcoming, relatable, eclectic and deeply involved community. To emphasize the extent to which I value these qualities, the very first time I'd ever donated money to support a server was for this one, just a few months ago. I've been playing this game on-and-off for 11 years. This server and its denizens have honestly grown on me and I'm inclined to stay around and involve myself more deeply.
Secondly, creating content that's been so thoroughly involved on this server has been a highly rewarding and entertaining experience. Any measures I could take to further foster this circumstance, such as involving myself more with and learning from the server's developers, is of great interest to me. To put it shortly, it's been a roller-coaster ride so far and I want to keep it going, maybe throw in loop or two. Being able to better coordinate content releases and updates with the server staff will be beneficial as well.
Finally, to be frank for a moment, taking on such an involvement could benefit my personal development as well. I've always been quite solitary, being more of a lurker within communities. There was a time where I wouldn't even dare use voice chat. But more recently I've been able to step out and participate directly with community members and now I want to try taking what seems to be the next logical step.
Are you currently a staff member elsewhere?I'm not currently, nor have I ever been a staff member in any other gaming community.
How active are you on DFS? If you're accepted, how active can you be on DFS?
If memory serves me well, within the past 3 months I've been active on DFS every other day and have been regularly checking in on the discord server. I don't see this regularity of activity changing any time soon, so you can remain assured that I'll still be around the majority of the time unless something significantly changes in my life circumstances.
Have you ever been banned from DFS before? If so, why?I've never been banned or kicked from a DFS server; only receiving a few one-off warnings over minor infractions (killing enemies that were close to their spawn, posting messages too frequently and one incident of posting content without realising that it technically infringed on server rules and that others could've taken issue with it, whilst having no intention of offending or discomforting anyone).
Include a link to your Steam profile
If you're applying to be a developer, show us an example of your previous work. Anything will do including source code, model files, map files and so forth.
I'm primarily a mapper of the hammer variety. Here's some of my most recent work.
dm_flood2_redux (beta, WIP)
Note: While the majority of this remake is my own doing, many of the fine details shown in the link below were contributed by Unicake as part of a collaboration. Kudos to him too.
I also have some video/audio editing experience, chiefly with Sony Vegas. But I don't really have any material that's worthy of display.
