Mentor application thing i guess [crumplehat]
Usual Character Name: Kira Taggart
BYOND Username: Crumplehat
Recommended by (if applicable): A bunch of people who seemed surprised I wasn't one already for some reason. I think Damian Garneys is one of them.
Times Available: Most evenings, I tend to spend the last 3-4 hours of my day on this game when I don't have anything more important to be doing. Sometimes I come on earlier, in which case I might end up spending p.much half the day on it.

Reason for Application + Game Experience (300 word minimum): I guess I figure that if I'm going to spend most of my time being a bossy snob telling people how to do their jobs, I should do it in a more official capacity. I've been playing this game a pretty long time, so I know a lot of the ins and outs by now, except in the places where things change regularly. Specialties include Mining, Engineering, Wire Structure, Robotics, AI Laws, a minor in Space Law, a lot of time clocked as the Chef (but again, that's been changing regularly recently), I've gotten somewhat competent at DWAINE by now, and I'm half-competent at Chemistry. I can't do Telesci, but in most other areas I can at least offer some minor insight. Mining in particular I know like the back of my hand, with the exception of extraction rigs which I have only very rarely used. I was around for the introduction of Ore as a thing and have versed myself thoroughly on ways to prevent myself from meeting an untimely explosive grave. If I can help a few more prospective miners learn how to actually do their job safely, spectacular. Same goes for Engineering. All too often does the singularity seem to get released due to ignorance of proper safety protocols, or the random yahoo who thinks they can manage to activate it manually and then proceeds to fail spectacularly.

Generally when I end up dead and someone's wondering about how to do something, I like to try to give them some advice for their next attempt, occasionally inserting a "fucking" or a "stupid thing to do" here and there, as in the case of the previously mentioned disaster. I can easily refrain from doing so for the sake of this responsibility, though.

I mean, I don't see what I could tell anyone that isn't already thoroughly explained in the wiki in one place or another, but if people aren't going to read that, I may as well tell them what it says to save them the trip.

Your opinion of Shrek (5 word minimum):
I liked Puss in Boots better. I dunno.

Previous Bans (While this will not affect your application lying about it will):
I have a shoddy memory so there may have been others, but I only remember these two. If there was another one it was a long time ago and it may have even been in error, but I can't remember.
First Ban: Job ban from Cyborg. I panicked in a syndicate raid and dragged a naked syndie out into space. It was a kneejerk and stupid reaction since he wasn't dying at the time and thus wasn't actually a threat, but for some reason I did it and it was stupid. I appealed it and the syndie in question accepted my apology, and it was repealed.
Second Ban: This will hang over my head forever, I will never forget this one. I got overly-excited once at the end of a round, and said something to the extent of BOOYEAH, followed by a stupid thing I should have never said and worst of all should never have tried to spell phonetically, because maybe if I'd spelled it right the wordfilter would have smacked my stupid face for trying to type it at all, because I was dumb and stupid for using it. The admin gibbed me, offered me one last quick save chance to explain myself, which I immediately proceeded to also botch in the most fantastic way possible. I forget the length of this ban because I didn't bother to appeal it because I knew I deserved it, but it wasn't permanent. I think it was originally 3 days but after I returned from waiting that out I found out it had been extended to a week? Again, it was deserved. The reason was that I had been around long enough to know better, and that they were disappointed in me, and dear god if that isn't the most miserable thing to hear from an Admin.
Anyway, at the time I didn't know bans were supposed to mirror to both servers (I don't make a habit of getting banned), so when I found out the ban had been extended (mind you, at the end of the original time period), I spent the rest of the time on the other Gibbed server keeping my head down and just keeping to myself, out of shame. I know now that you're actually not supposed to do that! It didn't come up at the time, though, and I didn't find out until it was brought up by in the case of another person who had come to the other server immediately after a ban, long after this one had passed. But if it's any consolation, I still haven't stopped kicking myself over that mistake and it's safe to say I will never, ever make it again. I made Dadmin disappointed in me and that is an unforgivable crime I will carry with me forever.

Gee, honesty sure is liberating. Nerve-wracking, too.
Kira Taggart is very competent in game and I'm really surprised you don't have mentor already. Yes from me.
Kira is one of the best players I've seen play the game. Nobody better to be a mentor, IMO.
I have seen Kira in game for a very long time and I have never heard anything negative about her, so a big yes.
Absolutely yes. Kira is highly knowledgeable and extremely cool. Probably one of the cooler players we get. He's kind of shit at Stations and Syndicates, though. But otherwise, 100% yes.
Kira gets -all- of my approval. All of it. 10/10 player, apologetic when there's a mistake and hilarious when there isn't, or sometimes both (Blowing me up with my own teleported bomb). Yes.
Kira, you're godly.
Kira, I'm pretty sure that I hate you, or you hate me? I can't be certain so it's one or the other; at the very least, you're very fun to annoy. You're definitely one of the better players on the server. Clearly deserving of being an HoS. I'll never forget the first time I encountered you on the station. I was a traitor Captain and I think you were a traitor engineer or miner. Halfway into the round I heard that you were up to some traitorous business in space outside sec (on Donut Station mind you), I peeked out the airlock and saw that you were a traitor with my glasses, but before I could ask if you wanted to join forces, you shot me with a rad bow and proceeded to wreck shit with my ID and E-gun.

I'm not sure what this story has to do with your ability to be a good HoS, but I am bored and I felt like writing it out. Anyway, I can sum this all up with a "YES".
It's a mentor application not an HoS application because I'm not the special brand of masochist it takes to put myself into the position of head of security but thanks anyway? Also I don't remember who you are but I honestly don't have the long term memory required to hold grudges. I remember people who are bad enough that everyone hates them, but I don't really care as much as I front that I do. I bitch and moan but it's just venting. Give me a day and I'll forget what it was about.
kira been around a long time and seems cool enough. i don't see a reason why not
I definitely support this. Kira's a Good Player ™ and is usually pretty helpful to folks in-game.
Yes; I am definitely supporting this one.

EDIT: For what Humble Bee said I'd say give her the beret too and make it the full nine yards.
kira is awesome, yes.
kira was part of the trio of petty bullies (the other two being nana and luna) that griffed me relentlessly back in the day.
