    [Pending]Dizzy771's Lore Master Application

    Thanks for the feedback, though I would like to bring up a few things: 1. I do understand both posts are currently lacking but at the time they were made they were generally pretty par for the course. The LT is was a part of had less strict guidelines for their lore then the current team has. This isn't an excuse, mind you, simply an explanation for why it is written the way it is. Given the chance I would be more then happy to go back and make the much needed clarifications for both magics. 2. You are right, with the new stricter regulations on lore and the want to clarify things the lore wasn't rewritten. However it is unfair to say that is my fault. I left the server for nearly 2 years, only recently returning within the past 2 months or so. If the lore needed to be rewritten during that time it should have been done by a member of the LT at the time or even an active user of the magics. By rejoining the LT I would hope to remedy the exact situations you are talking about (as well as work with the rest of the staff to produce more content for player enjoyment). 3. There is no hidden lore for runesmithing or golemancy. I would know, I was in charge of both the lore and the events surrounding either of the magics. If you see any runesmithing or golemancy that doesn't fit their respective lore posts its safe to assume that its from an event. If its not then contact a lore moderator. The only thing I can imagine you might be thinking of is the creation methods for the newer golem types / golem anvil. Those can easily be added to the lore post if the LT desires. Anything else thats "hidden" would not have been created by me. 4. There is a lore post for golemancy, its located under the creatures section. If you feel that "Golems" as a creature and "Golemancy" as the magic deserve separate posts then I can definitely understand that and would most certainly be willing to go through and try and separate the relevant pieces. 5. The "semi-infamous circlejerk the split the Dwarven community" as you put it was not caused by me. The whole civil war, and its RP consequences, happened after I had already left the server. Even if I did have a part to do with it, it is largely an RP issue and I fail to see how it holds much relevance to my application. Its a situation that needs to be solved in RP. In fact I do recall recently my character offering to teach you how to make golem limbs in RP if you provided my character with good enough reason. An offer which you turned down. To try and say that I am in any way connected to that situation would be false, in my opinion. 6. If the Arcadian group was bending the lore, while I was gone mind you, then you should have reported it to the LT (or even the LT lead themselves). I have to reiterate; I was not a part of this group. I fail to see how it holds any relevance to my application. All this said, however, I do thank you again for your feedback. While I feel many of your opinions may be a bit misguided and founded on incorrect information and preconceptions it is rather heart-warming to see others passionate enough about the same pieces of lore I've come to love over the years. As for all the dabbing pickles; thanks dudes.
  2. Minecraft Account Name(s) Dizzy771 Discord Dizzy771#5661 How long have you played on LoTC? Since 2013. Joined during Anthos. Timezone and Availability PST. Right now I’m usually available for at least 4-5ish hours per day at around 12-5 pm PST. Beyond those hours I can still very easily be contact via discord and usually respond promptly. What lore are you versed in most? Dwarven lore, Golemancy, and Runesmithing are my most well versed subjects. I do remember a various amount of details regarding other lores, however, particularly in the case of world lore and some event lore. I’m always ready and willing to learn more. Give a summary of any staff positions you have held on LoTC ET - several times, for a considerable amount of time each time. ET Manager - at least once, maybe more, cannot totally remember. ET Lead - once, for a short tenure. LM - once, for a quite decent amount of time. GM - twice, first time was a very long tenure (became the longest running GM at one point) and the second time was for a decent amount of time as well. GM Manager - once, was in the position for a couple months before I was made admin Admin - once, for a couple of months. As much as it pained me I stepped down because university was making it difficult to dedicate the amount of time I felt the position of admin deserved. Have you ever written lore for LoTC? Yes. The last iteration of runesmithing and the current iteration of golemancy are both mine. I have also written several pieces of lore for large story events that I have performed. Finally I have written lore for a couple of pieces of server-wide world / main story lore that was accepted but never became cannon as its implementation fell through. While not exactly “writing” lore I also was very keen on helping others conceive ideas for their own lore and have contributed ideas to a variety of different lores (event, magic, race, main story, etc). Have you ever received a blacklist or ban? No Who do you not get along with on the Lore Team? I don’t believe there is anyone on the team that I can say that I don’t get along with. I may have had differing opinions with some in the past, but that doesn’t equate to not getting along.

    Return of Non-Magical RP Crafting

    Back when I was staff the main reason that we never did this was because of the time that it took up. Watching someone preform crafting RP can take up vast amounts of time that might be needed on moderating or other related issues. Even if there is no moderation that needs to be actively done it is also really important to remember that GM's are players too, demanding that they give up 100% of their time on the server is unreasonable considering it is a volunteer position. That hour that you might spend having them watch you craft a fancy axe or what have you might be the only hour they get to put towards their own characters development. This issue could probably be remedied by having done the RP prior and grabbing screenshots to show the GM during a modreq, however. Unfortunately I don't believe that this is the main issue with this proposal though. The biggest issue I have with this idea is that it gives the impression that you need an actual MC item to represent your creation. Its the same issue some players need to learn about in terms of events; not everything should be about the items. If crafting RP that doesn't result in you get some extra pixels that will, lets face it, most likely occupy space in someones underground chest somewhere enjoyable or rewarding then you're doing it for the wrong reasons in the first place. Sometimes items that are solely RP as opposed to MC items can actually be much MORE rewarding as they'll see a lot more actual use because players won't be afraid of accidentally dying and losing their precious item. This is, of course, just my opinion coming from someone who has been very active in the past from both the crafting RP and GM side of this very topic. When I first joined in Anthos I did the exact same thing you talk about now, lengthy crafting sessions followed by modreqing to get custom items. Eventually the GM's stopped doing it for the aforementioned reasons and I was initially somewhat disappointed by it. But you know what? In the end it didn't really affect my RP much at all. Plenty of people still enjoyed coming to meet someone who was famed in the craft and commissioning some sort of work. Let me even give you an example of how not all crafted things need items; I recently was payed a fair amount of mina to attach a golem hand to another character. The whole RP was quite enjoyable and the other persons character underwent what I assume would be a rather profound experience and growth. Did this require me to make a golem hand item for them to carry around? Of course not. I do understand that a golem hand is quite a bit different then a sword or bow or whatever else but I believe the concept remains the same. Furthermore I must bring up the point that crafting RP is very easy to do. Anyone can just sit by an anvil and emote enough that a GM agrees to rename their item for them. The main pull shouldn't be an MC item, but the chance to experience the RP that you provide as the craftsman. The interactions between the characters, getting grip preferences, measurements, showing them how the weapon works, maybe even them rejecting it because they don't like the design and you need to start from scratch. There are so many possibilities. This is an RP server after all. Regardless I am very happy that so many people are becoming interested in crafting RP right now. The fact that this post is even a thing is encouraging.
  5. I haven't interacted much with Wolfkite since I returned to the server recently but I can speak on what he was like prior Woflkite used to be fairly immature, sometimes even bordering on toxic. This didn't necessarily stem from trolling or the like, but more from his stubborn nature and simply wanting to see things set right without know how to do it. He would quite often get into OOC arguments with others about the state of the server or other various topics. Furthermore he also used to be one of LOTC's #1 conspiracy theorists. He would sit in skype channels or discord or TS or even the in game OOC channel and just talk about how "the entire server is run by x shadow figure" or "y player was shadowbanned for opposing the great leader of LOTC". As staff at the time I can tell you he was quite often.... pretty far from the truth. While this doesn't sound too bad at first, just some crazy rambling, you do also have to remember how some of the things he would say might look to new players. Constant rambling about how evil staff are or how things are controlled by a shadow leader might scare off new players very easily. All that being said, however, I do want to reiterate my previous comment; I don't believe he did any of this maliciously or to troll. Hes a strong-willed individual who simply wants the best for the server and didn't know how to go about doing it. My last interaction with him was over a year and a half ago so there has been plenty of time for him to mature and become more responsible with how he handles himself and his ideas. Based on the various plus one's on this app from various different players in various different player groups it might be safe to say that he has matured at least a little, though I cannot speak on that myself. If he has matured then I see no reason not to give him a trial run, so long as he continues to act in a professional and mature manner and does not revert to the person I knew nearly two years ago.

    [Accepted] arockstar28s Trial GM Application

    First time I've posted on the forums in several months but I think its worth it; Arockstar started off as a loud, obnoxious, immature player that got upset when even the slightest thing didnt go his way. However he has changed immensely since then. Through his interaction with staff and gaining a better understanding on what they do and what they go through he matured greatly. Around the time that he began to mature he began to apply to staff teams himself. Once on these teams, at least while I was around, he was consistently one of the hardest and most dedicated workers. Of course when it comes to being a GM one of the main things that you need to have is a level head. Arockstar could probably improve in that regard a fair amount still, but he's shown in the past that he is capable and willing to learn if he is given the chance. I've yet to see a reason to regret giving Arock a chance in any other staff team, why not give him one with the GM team.
  10. Probably gonna be starting interviews for new GM's tomorrow. Post your last second apps if you're interested.
