    Which continent are you from?
    Australia.

    How often do you play?
    I try to play everyday.

    What times are you usually available (Please answer with your timezone)?
    I usually play between 17:00 - 22:00 (GMT+10).

    Which well known servers have you had admin on before?
    I have not been an admin in any servers on KAG, but I have been an admin, and sometimes server owner, in other games so I understand how it goes with issuing commands and such. I also know how to ask questions, so I doubt there will be any problems because I'm quite capable of learning.

    Do you have any recommendations from guards or server owners or other notable people?
    Solaris, toffie0, Ricket, Alistasia, 101i and Tynite.

    Why should you get admin and what makes you a good admin?
    Recently some other regulars alerted me to the fact that admins were being recruited for my region. After having a think about it I decided that I should apply with the others. Despite my lack of experience I think that I could easily learn the ropes as I know some other admins who I'm sure are willing to answer my questions.

    What motivated me to make the decision? I like to play a good game of KAG, and the fact that from time to time griefers will ruin a game and make many annoyed is frustrating to myself and others. If accepted I will be able to help the AUS servers out by keeping a lookout for these troublemakers to benefit the good players. With that being said, I consider myself a fair person and would usually give people the benefit of the doubt with a watchful eye.

    I will state that while griefers annoy me, any people who abuse their admin powers annoy me even more. These people can damage communities (I have personally witnessed this in other games) so I definitely do understand the need to be picky and obviously would never abuse it myself.

    Any other information you think might be relevant?
    I bought the game on 01/01/2014, however I should note I did play the freeware version (according to my email I created an account on 01/01/2012, but barely played in the two year gap due to laggy experiences). In 2014 the trailer sucked me in so I bought it. When I did I became addicted and now I pretty much play everyday. As of 06/08/2015, Steam indicates 1329 hours logged.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    EDIT: Added some more recommendations so they get credit.

    Because maybe only these people care about it? We have big community but people usually don't care.
     
  9. I'm saying that its usually the same group that +1 or -1's.

    Maybe the other AU admins care about who is going to be accepted or not?

    Also the AU community is pretty small compared to US and EU.

    Whenever I hop onto an AUS server, I usually see Dar there. Never seen him/her act like an asshat towards other players.

    Dar didn't join my clan :(
    But seriously, Dar is probably the best admin material I've seen in-game. Always calm, always with a good sense of humour and should know the rules by now.

    Are you the legendary Australian builder that I heard so much about? :)
     
  20. That would be me, but Dar is also legendary. Silent Admin is best Admin.
