When did you join AriesMS?
The beginning of June 2016
What do you like most about AriesMS?
Definitely the community. When i first came to AriesMS I saw the warm and comfortable community. I knew that this is the kind of community I was looking for.
How well are you able to communicate with the players?
For me, I am one of the members of my schools super council. In the super council, we voice the opinions of the student body. The student council is responsible for maintaining order, voicing suggestions or changes, and creating a welcoming environment for fellow students, Being on the student council for 3 years and more to come, I have learned the importance of respect, honesty, and kindness towards students and teachers. Also, we learn to deal with situations in a more professional manner. Just like being on a super council, AriesMS is a continuously growing server and the community blooming.
I love talking to people. I love to learn and share what I have with others. For example on discord there is always exchange in conversation between people. On this server so many people are so helpful and nice towards one another, communication would definitely not be a problem.
Do you have any other commitments?
Nope, not as of now. I'm in my last year of school, studying to become a neurosurgeon.
Have you ever played any of the official MapleStory(s)?
I played GMS for 4 years, however I quit a year ago.
Have you ever been assigned a Staff position on any private server game(s)?
No, but I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me. I would be able to show the staff and the community of AriesMS how helpful I am and how much i can bring to the team. Honestly I see so many applications with experience and I feel like I'm behind but if i do get the chance, I'll show my potential through this experience. Being blessed with an opportunity like this would be a real leap of faith but this experience would equip me with more knowledge and allow me to show what I can bring to the team.
Are you more comfortable working alone or on a team?
I am more comfortable working in a team, I love working together with people . As I said before the student council is made up of many people and our group as a whole works together to create a safe and comfortable environment. However, I am just as capable for working alone and independently with efficiency and accuracy~.
What skills or unique qualities will you be bringing with you to the AriesMS staff team?
→ I love art. Art has been a hobby for me for many years. My ability of art could help bring colour to the community .
→ I am active on the forums, Discord/Skype, and the actual game. I think we more GMs that are active that follow my time zone, there are often times when there are no GMs active during my timezone.
→ I like to take charge. I am usually very good at dealing with difficult situations and I like to be the mediator.
→ I am quick to catch on and keen. I like to analyze situations and pick at the details.
→ I like challenges, I like things that challenge me to be resourceful.
→ I value respect and honesty, these are my two most important rules.
→ I am good with dealing with disrespectful and rule breaking people. I like to see justice being brought down.
→ Though I am serious at times, I am reasonable. I don't judge a book by it's cover, there is never a good time or situation to judge someone just off the bat.
→ Once I've started something, I persevere until the end. I never like to leave tasks unfinished. No matter the task, I will be determined to finish it.
→ I am able to lead, leadership is a very essential trait. Either it's enforce rules, keep groups in order, or to carry out a task I will be able to, with my qualities, lead the way.
→ On top of all this, I am able to do trouble shooting both common and uncommon errors for players and help with many class related issues.
Besides those listed above, what do you believe to be important qualities of a Game Master?
→ #1 is respect.Respect is so important when becoming GM, respect must be given to all players without fail. Bias when becoming a GM is a big no no. When you respect others you will earn respect as well.
→ #2 is knowledge. Knowledge is crucial when becoming someone like a GM. A GM must know many things such as commands, the ToS, commands, bugs, technical issues, leveling/training spots, NPCs, and many more. Without this basic knowledge, a GM wouldn't be able to provide for the community.
→ #3 is social skills. Social skills of a GM must be top notch, communication is very crucial when it comes to helping the community of AriesMS.
→ #4 is Professionalism/seriousness. Though being humorous and playful at times, there are times when GMs have to be firm and serious when it comes to dealing with certain situations. Doing this will allow the community to be safe and in order.
→ #5 is Alertness. A GM would be alert and constantly on the look out for rule breakers and take measures against them. Alertness could also apply to other issues such as player issues with the map, character problems, and etc.
→ #6 is being open minded.Being a GM, we must always be able to take in opinions and new ideas. It is also very important to evaluate situations in many different perspectives to sucessfully resolve a situation.
Why do you want to work with us?
I want to bring something to the team. I believe that AriesMS has a very good team, I believe that I could help maintain this environment that I came to AriesMS for. When I first joined AriesMS, this server had about 400 people online constantly, that number is continuously growing and growing very fast (about 500~ 600 now). I want to be able to reach out the the community of AriesMS and be able to give them the safe, comfortable, and fun environment they came to AriesMS for.
As I said before, I want to gain experience by being part of a good team. Being a GM is a learning process in itself. I want to use my qualities as an advantage to help assist the staff and help the server continuously grow to be more and more successful. want to be able to grow along side the server and be able to look back and be proud that I had a contribution to AriesMS.
This application maybe a little longer than the rest.
