In UTC, what time range do you usually play in?:
10pm to 3am eastern, save Wednesday and Thursday which are generally open
Names of characters you play in Persistent:
Ukukuku
How long have you been playing Space Station 13:
Ye old /v/ server, long break, then consitently here. I remember constant talk of slipping into goon circles to thieve their code. 
How long have you been playing Baystation 12:
Never heard of it before here. 
In your opinion, what’s the biggest problem with the server right now, and what would you do to help resolve it?
Stability. It truly discourages when one has to redo done work. Resolution comes with code development
Have you ever been a staff member for any SS13 servers? (Please state where and how long if you have)
Never, but modded medium sized minecraft servers in yesteryears. Well loved I felt, and had 'the "perfect amount of patience for dealing with griefers" as player put it. Kinda miss the culture of those days. 
Answer the following scenarios and how you would deal with them to the best of your ability.

Q:An adminhelp comes in claiming an individual is griefing, the individual also happens to be a traitor.
A: Observe and see if their acttions are within the objective. If so, tell the concerned party it is an IC issue, preferably in an oblique manner. If not, bwoink the offender to get his explanation. If they're a real shitter concoct an IC reason for their behavior and disappearance, such as an escaped asylum patient and I play a 'compliance associate' retrieving them. Or maybe a Mime assassin executing a war criminal clown in hiding. 

Q:A player is upset about another player's reaction to something they did, but they are clearly in the wrong. How would you handle this?
A: Cookies, and a recommendation to a good lawyer. 

Q: When interviewing several individuals, one is lying but you cannot tell who it is. How would you proceed?
A: Review logs, cross analysis of facts. If that fails then go with the one with least to gain, and or instruct them to be more forward thinking and try to make such cases less ambiguous for their own benefit. Meta controversy will occur, it is as much a part of the game as roleplay, for better or worse. Hell, some people play for the meta-politics. Looking at you Rabbit. 

Q: You are receiving multiple inquiries about an individual who has not breached any rules, from one person. How would you handle this?
A: Interview inquierer, interview associates of individual. If IC issue handle icly, if roleplay issue bwoink the offender. Odd question, context dependent answer. Inquierer prior history of grudges, ooc issues? If it's a long running feud, recommend they throw down in off-topic on Discord. 

Q: A player joins the round and is vandalizing the ship/station while evading security. You attempt to ModPM them but get no response. What form of action would you take to get them to stop?
A: Sounds like another escaped prisoner/test subject/asylum loon. Send an appropriate official to capture or quarantine the individual, or else place a bounty on his body dead or alive. Regardless, compensate for damages by the respective institues to all affected by the loon. Then ban.

In UTC, what time range do you usually play in?
Lately I've been on late at night (8am-12pm UTC) but I also spend a lot of time in the midday on-server.

Names of characters you play in Persistent
Shas'kala Sakaei (Security Officer) and Greta Schrader (Xenobiologist)

How long have you been playing Space Station 13
Since 2013. Admittedly, I'm from Goon originally, but I've always liked some of the heavier RP communities a lot.

How long have you been playing Baystation 12
I played on baystation a few years back and left after a little while when I found aurora and joined it instead (Aurora was much different back then). Admittedly I don't know a lot about baystation or why we are necessary to play there, since we're going off different lore from it.

In your opinion, what’s the biggest problem with the server right now, and what would you do to help resolve it?: Aside from our low population and broken state of baysistence, my greatest criticism of the server in its current state is our somewhat low roleplaying standard. People in positions of power, like heads of security, are killing people over verbal disagreements, as well as people being murdered, instead of screaming things like "AHHH IM BEING MURDERED", they declare "wow. nice job killing me faggot." over comms. If we had more moderators to encourage good behavior, I think this server could be a real gem.

Have you ever been a staff member for any SS13 servers? (Please state where and how long if you have):
I was an admin for archangel station, an ss13 warhammer 40k conversion, for about 2-2.5 years. I've been told I did an immensely good job there at gently encouraging others to follow good RP standards, while also enjoying the game, instead of banning people and being a child with a bwoink button. 

Answer the following scenarios and how you would deal with them to the best of your ability.

QAn adminhelp comes in claiming an individual is griefing, the individual also happens to be a traitor.
A: I would explain to the reporting player that his behavior is most likely legitimate, and follow him. If he does anything noteworthy, such as shooting bystanders who pose no threat for utterly no reason, I would remind him of the goal of antagonists (to make the game intriguing and challenging; not unfair and hostile) and reference his notes to see if he's done similar things in the past. If not, I'll let him off. If so, I'll warn him, or even place a ban if his notes are really bad.

Q: A player is upset about another player's reaction to something they did, but they are clearly in the wrong. How would you handle this?

A: I would tell the reporting player (x) that in the ahelped situation, the reacting player (y) was justified in his response, and that it was an IC issue that should not be resolved with administrative action. If it was an OOC occurrence, I would inform player x that player y's response was valid and was not breaking rules. In the event that player x actually was so in the wrong that he broke rules, I would speak to him about his behavior on-server, and log the situation in his notes.

Q: When interviewing several individuals, one is lying but you cannot tell who it is. How would you proceed?

A: My best move in this situation would be to alert each player that their stories do not add up, and check the server logs to verify. I will ask that both of them present evidence of their claims in the form of logs or something else, and compare it to the server logs. I will make 100% certain that one of the players is being truly dishonest, and then I'll make sure that they receive a ban for lying to staff.

Q: You are receiving multiple inquiries about an individual who has not breached any rules, from one person. How would you handle this?
A: I'll politely inform the player that the reported individual is not operating in infraction of any server rules and is free to continue until he breaks one. If the player does not cease, I will alert him that further unactionable ahelps will result in a mute. 

Q: A player joins the round and is vandalizing the ship/station while evading security. You attempt to ModPM them but get no response. What form of action would you take to get them to stop?

A: I'll be kind enough to ask him if he is there once, to ensure that he hasn't just missed my message or is considering his chase with security to be more important than answering me at the moment, which is valid. If he is not busy IC and continues to not respond, I'll inform an admin of the griefer and make him drink the wine of admin fury poured full strength into my cup of ban wrath.

In UTC, what time range do you usually play in?

Live in eastern time zone. Available all day except in the morning.

Names of characters you play in Persistence:

Artem Noscor and Daniel Troi.

How long have you been playing Space Station 13?


Since early August.

How long have you been playing Persistence?


Since about September or October.

In your opinion, what’s the biggest problem with the server right now, and what would you do to help resolve it?

Lack of quality staff.

Have you ever been a staff member for any SS13 servers?


Nope.

Answer the following scenarios and how you would deal with them to the best of your ability.


  • An adminhelp comes in claiming an individual is griefing, the individual also happens to be a traitor.
I would start following the player to see if he really is griefing. If it truly is griefing, and not destruction that serves an IC reason as part of their antag plot, I would message the player and warn them to stop. However, I would still keep following them and if they continue to grief, I would ban them from being an antag.
  • A player is upset about another player reaction to something they did, but they are clearly in the wrong. How would you handle this?
I would tell the upset player to quit whining and tell them why they are wrong. Continued whining would result in being muted from ahelps.
  • When interviewing several individuals, one is lying but you cannot tell who it is. How would you proceed?
The best thing to do is to continue to ask questions. If the liar cannot be found, I would follow the individuals to gather more information. In the occasion that I am still not sure who did what, it would be best to drop the matter.
  • You are receiving multiple inquiries about an individual who has not breached any rules, from one person. How would you handle this?
Ignore it. That is an IC matter.
  • A player joins the round and is vandalizing the ship/station while evading security. You attempt to ModPM them but get no response. What form of action would you take to get them to stop?
Swing the ban hammer.

How long have you been playing Space Station 13 1.5-2 years
How long have you been playing Baystation 12 1-2 months
In your opinion, what’s the biggest problem with the server right now, and what would you do to help resolve it? Bay transition, lack of HoP ; I am currently learning how to code on byond, and could watch server while admins and other staff are coding/not on server (christmas donation)
Have you ever been a staff member for any SS13 servers? (Please state where and how long if you have). No
Answer the following scenarios and how you would deal with them to the best of your ability.

  • An adminhelp comes in claiming an individual is griefing, the individual also happens to be a traitor. I would investigate the claims seriously. If the traitor is found to be killing for no reason or another equivalent, then i would bwoink them and tell them to cut the shit. Make a note about it. Then job ban if the problem persists. If the traitor is not griefing, then i would tell the person that what the traitor was doing is valid
  • A player is upset about another player's reaction to something they did, but they are clearly in the wrong. How would you handle this? If it's a ooc matter, then i would bwoink both and figure out what happened, intents, motives, what have you. Then review any logs and tell the person that was in the wrong to cool it. Make a note of it if the problem persists.
  • When interviewing several individuals, one is lying but you cannot tell who it is. How would you proceed? Review the logs. The logs cannot lie. 
  • You are receiving multiple inquiries about an individual who has not breached any rules, from one person. How would you handle this? Inform them the player has not broken any rules. If they persist, make a note about it and if they persist after persisting, ask the player in question if they know the other player.
  • A player joins the round and is vandalizing the ship/station while evading security. You attempt to ModPM them but get no response. What form of action would you take to get them to stop? Forced sleep (if you can do that) or spawn a ton of tazer turrets and delete them after a nice long chat. Definitely make a note of it, and inform an admin.

Phorosians

[Image: 7096617228.png]

The result of Phoron Restructurant Syndrome, this "species" are walking examples of what happens when one gets too careless around phoron.

Physiology


[Image: dbcb4ea177.png]
The standard Phorosian is a humanoid afflicted with Phoron Restructurant Syndrome (PRS). This severely changes the way the victims body operates, becoming dependant on phoron to survive.

Phorosians lack proper skin, instead having patches of phoron covering their exposed muscular system. Their crystallized eyes glow (However none reported any improvement on their eyesight or ability to see in the dark), their organs held in a sac of phoronified tissue in their abdomen and chest. 

What is the cause of Phoron Restructurant Syndrome?

 PRS is caused by long term exposure to low traces of phoron, which leads to deposits of it forming in the bones of the exposed individual. Due to this, trace amounts of phoron is distributed throughout the body by blood cells produced by the poisoned bone marrow. Ordinarily this results in the body being slowly poisoned from the inside out as the phoron deposits grow, causing organ failure and death. However, if the afflicted individual is caught in a phoron based fire, the pressure and heat can cause a chain reaction if they are beyond a certain threshold, replacing the carbon compounds in the victims body with phoron from the air. With prompt medical attention and sequestration to a controlled environment, the victim can survive, though irreversibly changed from the process.

What are the effects of it?

Dependence on phoron: Phorosians require a constant supply of phoron gas to fuel their body. How exactly this works requires further exploration, though it is presumed that phoron taken in from the lungs is concentrated and sent into the bloodstream, being filtered by the liver and pumped through the body.

Immunity to toxins and viruses: Due to their physiology now encompassing an extremely toxic substance, this has given those afflicted with PRS a natural immunity to toxins. This has the side effect of administered anti-toxin instead confusing their body, causing it to break itself down.

Immunity to viruses: The drastic change to their biological makeup has granted them immunity to nearly all common viruses, the viruses being incompatible with their bodies.

Burning in oxygen: phoron is a highly flammable substance when exposed to oxygen and Phorosians are no different. When in an oxygen atmosphere the concentrated phoron they are made of starts to burn away, similar to the effects of being submerged in acid. As such, Phorosians are confined to a protective suit to keep their volatile bodies safe. Breathing in oxygen has the same effect, directly burning the lungs.

Tissue degeneration: Due to the effects of PRS Phorosians suffer from tissue degeneration. The skin is burnt off, leaving their muscles and ligaments to hold them together. The nerves are destroyed, leaving them with the inability to feel pain. They are notably weaker than most other races and need many months of therapy to relearn fine motor control. 

Organ system: A Phorosians organ system generally remain the same as it was before, with a few differences. Organs in the abdominal and thoracic cavities are held in a sac of phoronified tissue with a majority of the digestive system atrophied due to the lack of need for it. Their blood shows similarities to a mix of blood plasma and a form of liquid phoron.
Their brain has been affected by a crystallization process, commonly damaging the victims memory.

The Containment Suit

A Phorosian Containment Suit is similar in design to a standard space suit, albeit with a few differences with long term wear in mind. They usually follow the job jumpsuit coloring scheme for identification, and can be compared with the voidsuits of the job. As well, the suit is equipped with multiple access ports around the suit to allow for medical treatment and surgery with limited exposure to the atmosphere. As well, the suit contains a filtration system to filter out the excess and waste phoron produced by the Phorosian. Though it is effective, it is not 100% efficient and can cause phoron buildup in unventilated areas. 

Behavior

As PRS affects many sapient races it is common that the overall behavior of the afflicted individual will not change, retaining their beliefs and culture. However, the combined mental and physical trauma of the transformation can cause a multitude of behavioral changes. A few such examples include a phobia/obsession with fire, Mockingbird delusion (The belief that they are a normal example of their species, becoming aggressive if they're shown that they are not), and other various mental illnesses or instability. 

Names

It is common that victims of PRS keep their names. However, those who forgot their names, or decide on a new one will commonly choose something that they became quite familiar with during their recovery.

In the workplace

Common areas of work for Phorosians are jobs with a lot of EVA work (such as mining, engineering, search and rescue, exploring etc.) and areas where sterility or protection from various chemical and biological threats are important (medical, science). It is more uncommon to see them in security based jobs due to a higher chance of a suit breach occuring.

While the containment suits they wear filter a majority of the waste phoron they exhale, as said above they aren't completely efficient. In ventilated areas the exhaled phoron isn't enough to be a problem, however it can build up in unventilated areas. Anyone who has a Phorosian co-worker are advised to regularly get tested for phoron poisoning.

In game mechanics
Breathes Phoron
Immune to toxin damage, viruses
Oxygen restoring drugs burn them, Anti toxin drugs harm them
Takes burn damage if in contact with oxygenated environment (Suit breaches included)
Lungs take burn damage directly if they inhale oxygen
Liquid phoron acts like Tricordrazine and iron (helps regenerate blood, heals them)
Does not feel pain
Does not need to eat
Takes 70% brute damage and 150% burn damage
