Oliver Cross

My Staff Application

Recommended Posts


What country are you from?:
 England, aka that one place with an immortal Queen.

How well do you speak and understand English?:
 I can understand and speak English fluently.


In-Game name(s):
 Oliver Cross.


Play Time. Must be atleast 3 days. No exceptions(SCP-RP):


Are you a VIP/GoldVIP?:


Do you have a microphone?:
 Yes, I normally use it whilst on the server.

Do you have TeamSpeak ( Required )?:
 Yes, I do.

Why should we pick you? (250 word minimum):
In the perspective of the other staff and players on this server I haven't played for that long (in-game) but I think that I should be staff as I'm active on the server and my experiences and knowledge would be beneficial to the staff team, in addition to that if there is a disagreement among two or more people I can stay neutral until both sides tell their side of the story and it's only then when I make my mind up. I'm also willing to learn from my experiences as staff to better the experiences of others and if I need to (if I get accepted) I'll ask a more experienced member of staff for the course of action I should take if I don't know something as I'd like to learn from an experience rather than taking a shot in the dark and giving an unfair sit. Although whilst remaining unbiased I have zero tolerance for people wanting to ruin the experience for others, whether it being from NH2RP to just RDMing people (though I would give them a fair chance and a fair sit to explain themselves).

I believe that I am a trustworthy person, as I have no warns and I generally don't get verbal warnings from staff. Before I understood the rules and the forums were unclear to me, I asked staff for clarity on some rules before acting on anything. Due to my time zone, I can moderate in both down time and up time as the morning for me is typically down time shifting into up time in the later afternoon or evening.

How long will you be able to play per day?:
 Two hours and up on weekdays and on the weekend I can play for five hours and above, this is due to unpredictability on my schedule but I will always commit to putting some time in. Whether it be during down time or during up time.

Any past experience as staff?:
 No, but I'd like to put the time into becoming a good and efficient staff member if I was to get accepted and as I said in my Why should we pick you? section I'd be willing to learn both from my experiences and other staff member's experiences and build on that to catch up to those who have had experience as staff before.

Any previous warns/bans? If so why? (maximum of 15 warns, exceptions can be made.):
 No, I haven't received any warns on this server.



Do you know the basic ULX commands Yes/No:
As I said earlier, I've had zero experience as a staff member before so I haven't had a chance to use any commands and get experience using them but I know a few basic ULX commands although not all of them so I'd be willing to learn more of them if I were to be accepted. A few examples of what I know are:
!goto {Player} - Teleports you to selected player.
!bring {Player} - Brings targeted player to where you're looking.
!removenlr {Player} - This is used on people to remove their NLR.
!armor {Player} - This is used to give the target armour.
!kick {Player} - Kicks the target
!slay {Player} - Kills the targeted player.

From my basic understanding these are the prefixes that are the most commonly used:
* - Targets everyone except people above you in the ranking system (Mods can bring players, but Mods can't bring Admins)
^ - Targets yourself (Example: !return ^)
@ - Targets the person on your cursor (Example: !demote @, !armor @ 50)

Do you know what SCP-RP is about? (not just job descriptions):
 SCP RP is a Garrys mod community which is a semi-serious roleplay server that specialises around the Fiction Writing & Wiki Page 'SCP Foundation' and the well-known game (inside and outside of the community) 'SCP – Containment Breach' (Although, SCP Containment Breach is what would happen in a mass breach of all anomalous objects and entities within a site, and so this doesn't represent the normal day to day life in this Universe, and the SCP Foundation Wiki is comprised of stories and files of monsters and tragedies that are beyond what we deem normal aka what we like to call anomalies.)

This is where SCP RP comes in: this server takes a common interest in the players and puts them in the SCP Universe as you can RP in the site doing what you'd expect from the day to day Foundation Staff and there are many roles to be played in keeping the site secure from keeping SCPs contained to managing external affairs (and if you're really bored you can be a cafeteria worker and feed people because why not.) SCP RP also has a surface called 'Ovis City' which features many Groups of Interest such as Anderson Robotics, MC&D and Chaos Insurgency. Foundation staff and MTF have to establish connections and defend the site from these Groups of Interests. These aren't all the groups on SCP RP but all of these groups interact with the Foundation in different ways which create interesting RP scenarios from sales of anomalous objects to even installing augmentations on yourself.

Do you understand the rules of SCP-RP(1 word is not an answer):
I fully understand the rules of SCP RP and I often reflect on them to determine how to carry out a scenario. I've read them over and over to keep myself in boundaries of the rules and I believe that I can help guide others and help create an even better image of the staff team for SCP RP and I understand how the main rules of SCP RP work and function. A few examples are FailRP (Mega basing, lock picking blast doors, Unrealistically interacting with SCPs), RDM/RDA (Arresting without a reason, killing without a reason) but there are multiple reasons allow you to kill someone (being shot at first, someone attempting to cuff you, etc.), Demotion Rules (Foundation Administration demoting civilians with a good reason such as recruitment or such as a breach of secrecy or they know too much about the Foundation).

These are a few core rules/terms in-game:
RDM - Random Death Match is where a player kills another player for no reason.
NLR - New Life Rule states that you are to forget everything that happened in your previous life.
Metagaming - This is using unfairly gained knowledge in RP (e.g. using ooc to know where someone is, looking at someone's gun to determine if they're CI or not)
FearRP - This relates mainly to if you are being kidnapped or cuffed but can come under other areas in RP (Sigma-66). As an example: if under gunpoint (while cuffed) you should listen to your kidnapper's orders.
