    Your In-Game name:
    Nikki Bates
    Steam ID:
    STEAM_0:1:59544334
    Age:
    22
    Country & Timezone:
    United States - Eastern
    Server Playtime:
    5 weeks
    Past Experience:
    Moved my way up from Mod -> Admin -> Next in line for Staff Manager in the last community I was a part of. I'm happy to have found a more serious role playing server now. I know all basic commands and understand the logistics of appropriate punishments. I actually have most commands keybound already lol.
    Have you donated?
    Yes, 3 months.
    Why do you think you deserve to be admin?
    Alright so you guys saw this coming. I think I deserve to be part of the staff team because I know I have a lot to give. I am online every day and I am always available. It saddens me to see the amount of problems on the server and to know that I am there and could have fixed said issue, had I been given the powers to. I want to make this server/community a better experience for everyone and I know a lot of people can see that.

    So for the basics-
    • I know the server rules thoroughly.
    • I'm beyond familiar with gmod, its tools and commands.
    • I'm available and patient to help anyone who is in need, whether it be a rule issue or just learning the basics of gmod.
    • I'm mature, and can show patience towards hostile or complicated situations.
    • I'm a very calm person and am aware of my emotional state. I don't have anger problems.
    • I am active on both the forums and server and I am always available.
    • I've never been banned as I try to always follow the rules and encourage others to do so as well.
    • I'm a very giving person and have no problem giving my time to others.
    • I've been known to help the current staff members and I am familiar with them all. (I think at least)

    Extra notes:
    • I have some background in psychology and therapy. I enjoy helping others and have the patience to do so.
    • I take pride in enforcing rules, because maintaining a healthy server makes for a fun server. It makes me happy when my actions are appreciated by those I help, since it only furthers my experience and their enjoyment on the server.

    I hope you read this with an open mind and understand that I do care about the good of the community. I know a lot of people whom I have posted ban req's against are going to be biased and that is very sad. If you don't have a valid, non biased, non ignorant comment then please don't say anything at all.

    In case anyone mentions or thinks of this- I bought a new headset so yes, I have a working microphone! No worries there.

    I've grown close to a lot of you and the ones whom I haven't grown on simply don't take the time to get to know me, nor allow me to know them. The amount of troubles the server has on a daily basis - had someone been there to handle said situation - the community could grow and be better than ever. I'm usually there, asking multiple staff members to get on hoping one responds. Thank you guys for taking the time to read this. ♥

    In my experience knowing her, I can safely say that she would be a good admin. She's considerate, and routinely takes time out to help new players and those with problems. She's never blown up on a person, (except when Sage C4'd her) and would be as impartial as one can be on Chronet. I think she would be a great addition, and it helps that she's on a lot. I've seen complaints about the lack of moderation, but I'm sure Nikki would tackle those fairly easily.
    +1 from me.

    +1 for me, I think Nikki would be a wonderful addition to the staff team. Why? Well, She is beyond familiar with the rules, She is mature, She know every do and don't, And I think you get my point. Overall, We need more people like Nikki for staff.

    My initial response might have pissed a lot of people off, so I'm going to go with neutral for now, however I am strongly considering +1'ing this. From what I've seen from you on the server, you have no problem whatsoever enforcing the rules, and do it effectively. But, and I'm just going to be honest here, people tend to find you to be extremely annoying. Whether it's simply the fact that your a girl or just in general the way you enforce rules, I don't know, but as I said, people just act that way. I myself however don't want to stoop down to this bias, which is why I usually don't reply to a lot of admin apps, because I'm part of so many groups that it's hard to say anything about someone without one group getting all up in arms about it. (I know it might be a bit selfish, but still, I need to look out for myself.) I haven't really heard anything about you breaking any rules, but then again I literally have the memory of a fucking goldfish, so I really don't remember.

  5. For anyone that knows me you probably know I'm a brutally honest asshole, so that's why you should take my opinion seriously. Pretty much every admin I've met I've considered a total asshole. Most of them have an unhelpful, short and careless personality. Nikki is honestly the only person I'd trust as admin. I could give you the whole "she knows the rules" reasons and shit but lets be real, everyone knows the rules and donating doesnt make someone a better admin. But every time someone has false kicked, rdmed, or really done anything wrong Nikki has stepped in in the OOC to try to handle the situation. And I know Nikki would actually handle the situation maturely and make sure the right person is punished, unlike the careless admins we have now. Fin.

    From her last admin app, to this one I have seen very much improvement with this person, she has become more apart of the community as a whole, which was my main concern about her being admin in the first place. On her last admin app I minus oned but for this app, from the change I have seen in this person I am changing to a Plus one

    Still very neutral, I haven't quite figured you out yet. At some times you can seem helpful and patient, while at other times you and those under your charge (Organization members or party members) can start quite a spat. I'd like to see a bit more maturity from you, then I would be delighted to +1 this app.
    Also, just gonna point out...
    There are a lot of inactive admins who are still admins who you've probably never encountered. Armin, Jak, Shadysteve, and Timo.

    I'm very surprised you haven't figured her out yet. It's very simple actually in my opinion to see her very clear very non complex points. I consider her a pro at enforcement of the chronet administration guidelines and rules. I say this because I factor in her ban request's acceptance and denial rates. I also see her get flamed constantly for stupid stuff and she is definitely able to keep her cool in the roughest of situations. +1


    I agree, I think that in order to really be efficient about being an administrator on any server is the ability to take criticism. I'm getting very close to bringing down my +1 to a neutral so...please for the love of god @Nikki Bates Just don't reply to anymore trolls. The last thing we need to do is feed them. :ninja::eek:

    Why is she not admin yet???

    Think about it, flawless record, knows the rules extremely well and is on every day. She's also very friendly. I'm positive she'll be a great admin.

    May I add the people who find her extremely annoying are either 10 years old trying too hard or a 30 year old man in his basement playing this with 3 pizza boxes next to him.

    Can't say anything about that. @Zaptto

    Thank you for your feedback! My only request is that you don't take the actions of my party or org members into consideration when considering the maturity of myself. My members (used to be) all younger and new people to the server. I'd take them in, teach them how to build - craft - do everything they need to know on Chronet - and then they'd be on their way. Most of them are gone now, some starting orgs of their own, but I acknowledge my party members do make mistakes and break rules, which is why I teach and enforce the rules to them.

    I'm not sure I understand your reasoning for holding back that +1 :p
    Yes, people who break rules find me annoying because people like to play the game without any consequence to their actions. They also have a hard time reacting to me showing authority to them, as a female, in which they don't know how to respond correctly, most likely because they are teenage or younger males, therefor retaliate by bringing me down or belittling me. Sadly it's not my fault how their brains choose to react to my authority and there is nothing I can do about that. I hope you understand and this helps clear things up for you! Thank you for your response!

    An admin is in charge of managing the entire server. If you cannot manage your small organization to keep them following the rules, how do you expect to manage the whole server?

    Another concern of mine is the inevitable bias (Probably unconscious) that will take place when handling situations with the Bates.

    Also, we have an edit button for a reason. Triple posting is bad.

    Okay this seems a little ignorant in my opinion. No matter how much you enforce rules you can not control if the person you are enforcing those rules to will follow them. You will NEVER be able to control or dictate someone elses actions nor is it your fault how they decide to act/respond. I can enforce rules to them all day but if they don't listen or follow them I do not have the power to punish them. When managing a server, you're given the power to enforce rules, watch over said players and punish if they decide to not follow orders. I'd also like to point out that some people I took in to teach rules and the server to would not listen or follow rules at all, whether it be ignorance or just not wanting to, therefor they were asked to change their name and I stopped interaction with them. Everyone in the community is aware that if a Bates is breaking rules they can tell me and I will handle it. I'm not at all easy on them. Also, most of these players are no longer in my family. The remaining members are all older individuals with maturity.

    Kick them from the organization. If they don't follow the rules they shouldn't be in the organization in the first place. You have authority to make them no longer YOUR problem, but rather the ADMINISTRATOR'S problem.
    I'm sorry but from my own personal experience, this is not at all true. I'm going to stop this line of conversation here because I don't want to start a full on fight, and the conversation should swing back to the application at hand.

    I just want to point this out.
    Also, let me add, the past 3-4 days I have kicked almost everyone out of my org and to be honest, I felt bad doing so, because some of the individuals are simply young and don't understand, however I know they need a wake up call to know what they are doing is not okay. It deeply bothers me for you to say this, seeing as I haven't seen you on in the past few days, and I know for a fact I have been getting rid of all my members. The ones who remain are Drago, Braden, Wade, Jamzi, Elliot and myself. There no longer is Bob, Justin, Matt, Felix or Jeffrey. I'm probably forgetting a few I've kicked out.

    I have been online. My username has been [CN] Ego Sum Frigus Signum. You probably just didn't recognize me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    But I just haven't seen any change.

    Anywho....
