    Before I get started with my application. I'd just like to thank Noobcrew and Cypriot for bringing back this wonderful server. I may have been rude to them in the past for being lazy, but I realized that it's not their fault Minetime took so long to come back. All the hate I gave to them was not true, I was just overwhelmed and I want to say I'm sorry. Now into my application.

    Hopsicles's Helper Application

    Introduction
    Hello! My real life first name is Nathan, and I am fourteen years old. I live in Pennsylvania, United States. I love playing Minecraft, especially Minetime.

    I will share how I got into Minecraft and Minetime.

    I was introduced to Minecraft by my friend Marcus back in 2011. We had Minecraft: Pocket Edition Lite and I played that for hours on end. I never played a game before where you could do whatever you want, whenever you want. I probably had the most fun on a video game I've ever had in my life. Then, I finally convinced my parents to buy me the full version of Minecraft PE. We couldn't believe how many cool blocks and features we've been missing out on. We always worked on each other's worlds on the bus ride home, and every time a new update came out, we were excited as could be. On each of our iPods, we had our own cities called 'Markstown' and 'Natestown'.

    On November 8, 2012, I finally got Minecraft for our home PC as an early birthday gift. At first, I still stuck to Pocket Edition because my ten year old self couldn't figure out the crafting recipes, making it very hard to play. But as I got older, I started to play Minecraft on PC more and remember the crafting recipes. Then, I fell in love with the game. There was even more updates than PE, and more features that were already there (an actual nether instead of that nether reactor thing that PE used to have, the End, and much more). When I finished watching a video on YouTube how to activate a nether portal and then stepped in, I felt like I just made the best achievement of anything ever (Yes, my ten year old self got pretty excited over stuff like that).

    Sometime later, I started to get into the Multiplayer aspect of Minecraft. And it took me a while to find a server that I really loved, and it was Minetime. The skyblock spawn felt so much like a home to me, with the mob domes, the little trading booths, and the little PvP arena. About a year after I joined Minetime, I decided to get a forums account. And that brings us to here.


    Your in-game name

    My In-Game Name is Hopsicles.

    Previous Names: Hopular, Hopcorn, Hopstar, Hoppy74.


    What timezone are you in?
    I am in the Eastern Standard time zone (EST). I don't think I'll be moving to another time zone any time soon.

    What country do you live in?
    I live in the United States.


    What languages do you speak?
    I speak English and am learning Spanish in school. Note that I cannot speak a whole conversation in just Spanish.


    Do you have 2FA enabled?
    Yes, I am protected with Two-Factor Authentication.


    Do you have the necessary means of capturing evidence? (i.e. recording software, screenshots, etc)
    Yes. I have QuickTime Player for recording, and Imgur for capturing screenshots.


    Why do you think you should become a helper?

    I have many reasons that I think should become a helper. I will list them below.



    I think that I am a very trusted player on Minetime by many people. For instance, on Skyblock, when people need to move their items because they want to reset their island, a lot of people go to me because they know that I am very trustworthy.



    Another reason I think I should be helper is because I am a very helpful person. I'm pretty sure this attribute is needed for the job, as the rank is called 'Helper' (that was a joke. :p) But anyways, I am always helping people when they need it. I will never just straight up say 'no' to someone's request. For example, if someone wants me to show them how to play Prison or Factions, that's no problem at all. If someone wants me to join Infection or Skywars because there's not enough people online to play, I might be doing something at the time but I'd definitely come to play within the next few minutes. However, if someone wanted me to build their whole island on Skyblock, I obviously can't do that. Instead of just saying 'no', I'd probably say 'I think it's more fun to build it yourself and when it's finished, you can admire the work you did.' instead of being harsh.



    I look at myself as a very responsible person. I never intentionally break any rules, I don't misbehave in game, and I would never abuse any permissions, whether it be staff permissions or donator permissions.



    I am almost always kind to all players on Minetime. There are a few people that I get annoyed with at some times and become a little rude, but other than that, I am always the nice guy. Every time I log into skyblock, I welcome everyone online with a 'Hello MT!' I am certainly never rude to people in-game. The only time I get a little mean is on the forums, and I'm sorry for that.


    I am very flexible with punishments, meaning before I issue a punishment I will find the reason why the rule-breaker broke the rules, ask them why they broke the rules, and if it was a misunderstanding, I will apologize.



    Lastly, I have a lot of knowledge. I know so much about Minetime, it kind of scares me. I even know a lot of stuff that happened before I joined Minetime! Don't ask me how, I do not know. It is probably because I spend a lot of time browsing the forums and looking at old announcements. In my opinion, that is a great attribute to have because I can answer questions for other players that are either new or they don't use forums so they need to be caught up on the news.

    Becoming helper on Minetime would be amazing for me. I've always wanted to be that someone who helps people with problems, deals with player reports, moderates the server, and do everything that staff does. I dedicate a lot of my time to Minetime, and I think it's about time that I became a bigger part of it. I would answer as many player reports as possible. I would be as active as I can all the time. Just that feeling of being helper, I can't even imagine how happy I would be. I know this is just a game, but Minetime is so much more than a game to me. I want to be looked up to. I don't want to just be any old player. I want to be staff here. If I became helper, it'd mean much more to me than just helping out with a Minecraft server. I'd meet new friends, get to know people more and reach out to the community more. To sum it up, being helper here at Minetime would mean the world to me.

    All in all, I think I am the perfect fit to become helper.


    How long can you be active on the server everyday?

    With school coming up, I won't be able to be as active as I can be in the summer. But I can definitely fit in at least three hours daily. I have a schedule of times that I will be able to play below. Note that these are only estimates, and my playing times are subject to change.

    Sunday: Anywhere between 12:00 PM-5:30 PM and 6:15 PM-10:00 PM.

    Monday through Friday: 6:15-7:00 AM and 2:30 PM-10:00 PM

    Saturday: Any time during the day (9:00 AM-11:00 PM)



    How long have you been playing Minetime?


    I have been playing Minetime for at least two years now. I can't recall the exact date/month I first joined, but I can remember in summer of 2014, my little sister and I played skyblock. I can't remember anywhere past that.


    Have you ever been banned in the past? (Forums & In-game)

    I have never been banned on the server or the forums. In fact, I've never been muted other than by console, and I've never been warned. I try my best to follow the rules all the time, no matter what the circumstances are.


    Do you have any past experience as a moderator/helper?

    I have no past experience on Minetime as a staff member, but I have been staff on a few smaller servers. During my time of being staff for those smaller servers, I have learned how to use all commands needed.

    Edits/Updates:
    1. Un-merged the 'Why do you think you should become a helper' section and the beginning of that section.
    2. Added 'Introduction' Section
    3. Tweaked around with some sections
    4. Added a conclusion

    Conclusion

    Last summer when my application was denied, I was really, really sad but only for a few minutes at best. Then, I realized that there's always a next time. And this is that next time for me.

    I hope you LOVED reading my application. Thanks and have a good day.

    -Nathan

    I'm neutral.

    I don't think of you as someone who'd be a good helper or someone I'd route for, but I wouldn't say you'd be a bad helper or route against you.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Why do you think I wouldn't be a good helper?

    I'm very picky. There are very few people I think would be a good helper, in all honesty.

    No need to be rude?

    Anyone but @Aquamarine would be a great helper.

    Kind of neutral, I'd like to see you on the staff team but you don't seem quite capable. Extra points for your detail though ;)
