Wraithcraft's Mentor Application
#1
After an epic fight to the death with Avack, I have decided that I have amassed enough knowledge to write up the most sacred of applications.
Usual Character Name: Ireen Robinson, used to play as Doctor Science
BYOND Username: Wraithcraft
Times Available: 4:30PM-12:00PM Weekdays, 10:00-1-2:00 Weekends Central Time. (I go to one of those convoluted schools that goes from 9-4) 

Reason for Application + Game Experience (300 word minimum): 
First off, my game experience. I have been playing this game for about 8 months, and in that time, I've learned just about every system except for the finer points of DWAINE and ThinkDOS. When I first started playing, I joined in as a scientist, and that's the only job I played for a solid month. I can play every job I set my sights on rather well, with the exception of a security guard, but that's only because I'm not very good at being robust. Besides knowledge of systems, I've also learned how the game rolls, what to expect, and how to deal with crazies.(You know the type, the ones that shoot you with the zip gun, stab you in the face and then beat you with their leg that got blown off by the zip gun.) 

I also feel that I have the ability to teach anyone who needs my knowledge just about everything that I know and can share. This leads in to my second point, which is why I want to become a mentor. When I first joined the game, everything I knew came from a RPS article about the best free games ever, and within an hour, I found myself playing as a scientist, smacking into walls and punching myself with a pill bottle. After a round or two of this, I complained in the OOC chat and I received a link to the wiki after, quickly reading the getting started guide. I'll still never forget how I felt, trying to figure out how to put things into a backpack or not beat myself with a wrench. It's the memory of that early feeling of being lost that gives me the drive to want to help other new spacemen with getting accustomed to the game and not beating themselves with wrenches. I mean, I'd still help other people with their problems of not being able to scoop out an eyeball or cooking a butt, but helping new people would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 

Previous Bans (While this will not affect your application lying about it will):
I was banned once for IC in OOC. I was also banned by mistake once or twice. (I have a stepbrother that played here at the same house as me, and apparently that carries warnings and bans over to me if they're warned or banned.)

Sure, I see you a lot and you don't seem like a massive butt. Yes from me
#3
From what admittedly little I know about you, I'd be concerned about this; but I'm going to pass on voting or making a recommendation.

I really wish I could say the same, truly.



I'm going to change my above recommendation.

It had been a while since I'd spoken to wraith and I had presumed he had changed, but since I posted above, he's been around me a lot more, and

NO

Being a mentor is more than "knowing shit". You have to have the temperament to do the job, and at the risk of sounding like a complete asshole, wraith most certainly does not have said temperment.

Not voting one way or another yet but just throwing out that to be a mentor you also have to be trusted to not use the info you get from some mentorhelps. Just backing up what Teddy said as he did not go into detail for those who may be confused by his statement.

When ever I come across you on LLJK#1 you seem to be spouting ic in ooc, or getting furious in ooc that you are dead. I'm sorry but I'm not sure you're responsible enough for a mentor role.

I - am gonna have to say no, not yet. They have a problem with IC in OOC, melting down, blowing up, releasing plagues or whatever on Destiny. I wouldn't mind it on low pop rounds or whatever, but in one instance, they rendered the ship SO HOT the pods burst into flames, wrenches melted and stuff during a fairly good pop round. It sucked. And they did it twice in a row.

I agree with all of these people, this sounds like a bad idea
#9
While Wraith can definitely be fun to play with, the maturity level is just a little too low. Though, I haven't seen her really have any issues with IC OOC lately. Though, the station-melting incidents (which caused my body temperature to literally reach >1 million celcius. I was healthy though...?) were a bit of an issue. Wraith is certainly knowledgeable but, she needs to try and mature a little and limit her actions. They're certainly not game-ruining as most people cause incidents a few times, but not *quite* mentor material just yet.

As wraithcraft is now banned, this app is automatically denied.
