    About me
    Date of birth:
    February 29 2000​
    General Location:
    California, USA​
    Applying for the following server(s):
    [TF2] Rapid Fire + Unlimited Ammo + Trade​
    Do you have a microphone:
    Alternative accounts:
    Do you understand SteamRep, please explain?
    SteamRep is a site used for checking the background history of a player. It is pretty much a criminal background check for everyone who trades using Steam. It's super useful for making sure you are making a deal with someone who isn't a past scammer, cheater, impersonator, or spycrab runner.​
    About you:
    I am Brandon, a 17 year old boy from California. I love playing video games but I also have many other hobbies. I have a strong passion for music and the arts. I love playing my instruments, listening to music, and even producing it in my free time. I also like reading with the time on my hands when I just need to relax and take a while. I am currently on summer break and going into my senior year of high school.
    Application Information
    I will be honest I haven't been a staff member of anything for years. I used to be a moderator for a popular WoW Private Server but I do not remember the name of it, and I've been GM on many Minecraft servers all small and without websites. I have never been a moderator on any TF2 servers but I think this is a good opportunity for me to really learn what it's like. I am still 100% confident that I am completely capable of handling this position and I have no doubt that I can do a fine job at it.​
    Why do you want to be a Trainee?
    I have seen a lack of any administration most of the time that I've been on. The only administration I have ever seen are HornyCorn, Emu, Pixel, and Nooge and that is with continuous play for the past weeks. I saw Pixel once, Nooge once, Emu 2 times, and HornyCorn has been on the whole time. He really does an amazing job as a staff member. It is super frustrating however, when there are micspammers, hackers, or people outright breaking the rules and there are no staff members online. I feel like there is definitely a need for more staff especially on the American servers.

    EDIT: I originally did not plan on re-applying for the position because I was frustrated with the application process and how long it takes the management to review applying members. I have since talked to many of them and I now understand what is behind the process so I apologize for not fully understanding the process previously and getting mildly upset at how the servers did the process. I have decided to re-apply because I still think there is a huge lack of staffing on the servers regarding American time-zones which many staff members have agreed with me with. I would like to use this application as a completely clean slate and make sure that everyone understands that I only want the servers to grow and succeed. I want to give a special thanks to Nooge and Makaveli for being really understanding and helping me learn how the application process works. Thank you for reconsidering me as an applicant and I hope to bring a good member to the team in the future! :)

    EDIT 2: Third times a charm?​
    My biggest challenge would probably be that I can be a bit rude sometimes. I can actively work towards fixing this by trying to be nicer and more helpful to the newer traders and younger kids that come onto the server. I also have to learn how different it is being a staff member on TF2 is. I have never experienced that before so it may be a learning process for me. Then I have summer school coming up for a little bit so it may become harder to get on the server, but I can still be active as summer school is only a portion of my day and the rest I will most likely spend playing TF2 anyways.​
    Yes I have.​
