Q9. Have you had previous experience as a Gamemaster? If yes, please explain.

Yes, I have been a GM for a failed start up server and also a few actual indie MMORPG's from 2012-2014.

Q10. Explain why you think you would be a good Gamemaster.

I constantly am finding myself answering PM questions and local area questions about issues and finding responses to them either on the forum, or using my extensive knowledge from playing the game and previously building private servers.

Q11. What interests you most about becoming a Gamemaster ?

I have always loved helping players and resolving their issues in game. Gamemasters really make or break a private server and I want to be a part of the positive experience.

Q12. Do you know WHAT a Gamemaster does? Please explain.

A Gamemaster answers not only FAQ through the forums and in-game support, but they also resolve issues in game resulting in activity that is in some way prohibiting the player's gaming experience.

Build a good eye in the VanillaGaming community, while making sure the errors/bugs are getting fixed and the player's issues are handled appropriately.

Q14. What will you do if a Player asks you for help?

I will use my extensive knowledge to assist players with general questions and issues through the online forums, as well as in-game support.

Q15. What will you do if you are unable to help?

If an issue were to arise where I am unable to assist with a certain issue, I would contact a fellow GM or higher who has more experience dealing with that specific issue.

Q16. Gamemasters always use correct English spelling and grammar. Do you?

Yes, I am very precise on correctly spelling and phrasing my words to sound professional and knowledgeable.

Q17. If an event gets out of control, how would you how would you handle the situation?

Each event is going to have different variables and possibilities. I am trained in resetting specific NPC's and using other commands I've become familiar with to make sure everything is resolved and in compliance with server rules and regulations.

No, I have never committed any act of fraud or dishonesty to harm another player or exploit a game or server.

Q19. If you were going to submit a suggestion for us, what would it be?

Allowing more experienced players to become volunteer Gamemasters to make sure each player's experience runs as smooth as possible.

I have constantly been helping players with problems and questions in chat and PM and resolving them to the best of my ability using resolutions found on our forums to make sure I am giving the correct information.

Q21. Professionalism, integrity, and honesty are required at all times. In what ways do these words describe you?

I am very detail-oriented as well as making sure all aspects of my life are professional. I have been raised with high morals so honesty and integrity are instilled into my mindset and results into noticeable positive actions into my work and home life.

Q22. Have you ever been disciplined by a Gamemaster on VanillaGaming?

I have never been disciplined by a Gamemaster of any private server, including VanillaGaming.

Q23. What can you do to help the server grow?

I vote constantly, not just for the benefits in-game, but also to help our server get more recognition and expansion into the private server industry. I'm sure that by providing excellent in-game and online support, VanillaGaming will be very well known for this and the community will continue to expand further.

Q24. What is your definition of teamwork?

Teamwork is coming together to make sure the community's issues are handled appropriately as well as professionally, while leaving each experience positive for each player we come into contact with.

Q25. Is there anything else that you would like the Staff to know?

I have live server characters as well as private server characters. VG was one of the first private servers I have played, though I have tried around 30 others, VG feels like home. I am experienced with the commands list and basic functions of a private server as I have created my own vanilla, burning crusade, WOTLK, Cataclysm, MOP and Legion private servers for personal use, though they are no longer my priority. I would love to hear back from someone at the VG team.

Thank you,
Rugisc
