    Will you get mad if you lose admin?:
    Not at all, I understand that the admin position is a privilege that can be taken away at any moment.
    How do you ban yourself using your own SteamID?:
    sm_ban "#[U:1:159344067]" 30 "Obvious Aimbot"
    Any other reason you should be admin:
    *DISCLAIMER* This application is very similar to my previous one. The main issues with the past application(s) were pretty bad chat history and errors on the actual application questions. I believe I have fixed both, as I said I would; so, hello, I'm Dirty Dan. I'm an undergraduate Anthropology student currently attending the University of California Riverside. I believe I should be an admin for a few main reasons: firstly, I always play on the Harvest LA as well as Turbine LA servers daily at the listed times, and thus I would be reliable and dependable in fulfilling admin duties. Secondly, I have extensive experience in professional leadership and in the enforcement of rules and policies in real life, as I am a manager for a prominent animal feed corporation. Based on my real life experience and time spent playing Skial servers, I believe I would make a great addition to the Skial admin team; and I hope that you will consider my application.​

    1. Only waited a month and a half since last application. Patience, much?
    2. Voted to silence a player for "spamming hack accusations." While the player did call a vote to ban the player they were calling out as hacking, they never spammed the vote or tried it again. Since you said you were voting to silence them for "spamming hack accusations," and not for a "false vote," then I am led to believe you think spamming hack accusations is silenceable.... and it's not. P.S. It wasn't "spam" either.

    3. Reports are not required, as we've discussed in detail over many, many applications, but you've not once used the /report button (this is evidenced by your steamID not being in the reports section) or even come to the forums to report folks.
    4. Application reason is a copy/paste as before, which you "disclaimer"-ed. If you so badly want to be an admin (as evidenced by the lack of patience between applications), then why aren't you begging at our feet (**hypothetical**)? In other words, TELL US why you want to be admin. You've also said what you can "offer", but you aren't really telling us why we need you, or what's wrong with the servers at the moment (i.e. oh my gosh racism is so rampant around here, if only we had an admin).
    5. I'll say the same thing I said last application. What is so remarkably different from the previous that we should consider this time around? The lack of time between applications isn't great, the same copy/paste reasoning isn't great, and there's that potential vote abuse as mentioned in point #2.

    Steam:

    Well in regard to why I want to be an admin rather than what I can offer, at least on the Harvest LA server, very rarely have I ever seen an admin on in my entire time playing. This has resulted in excessive racism, gore and sometimes but not exactly common child porn sprays (cartoon and real life), and occasional but once again not exactly common hackers. I would like to help put a stop to this and make some of the skial servers a better place. Cliche, I know, but it's nonetheless true. I also know the time between apps isn't great, but I wasn't looking to wait a while after I cleaned up my application. I wanted to fix what I did wrong and put my application right back in for consideration. I'd say the main differences between this and previous applications are just what I sought out to fix: the awful chat and aimbot question. Finally, point taken on the accusations bit. I consider hacking accusations seriously and thought it would be worthy of a mute, but hey, if Skial doesn't think so then neither do I.

    Steam:

    Surely you anticipated my follow up question? If you've seen tons of rule-breaking, why is the only thing you've done about it is make 3 admin apps?

    Well, if you've been trying to work on being an admin, wouldn't you think you should read the rules to make sure you understand them? Hackusations isn't on there.

    Steam:

    I always report them through steam, not through Skial, but it seems now that reporting them here and in steam would be the best bet. Also I have read through the Skial rules, and while hackusations aren't on there, it seemed (in my humble opinion) that accusing someone of hacking while on a server that takes hacking very seriously would be a heavy statement, and several false ones would be deserving of a temporary mute. But, like I said, lesson learned. From now on if Skial doesn't consider it punishable, then neither do I.

    Steam:

    You haven’t been on the forums in a week, and you haven’t received any positive comments from server regs. Don’t see how this is any better than your last app.

    Also, I know the below was just to your friends, but I don’t see how it is appropriate. When nonregs see dsay chat, they sometimes think it’s an actual admin. We don’t need those folks thinking you’re an admin.
