I download X-Perl 1.9.6 which I believed it was but many of the icon positions and features are different. Any ideas?

Q1. What is your main character's in-game name?
Q2. What is your real name?
Efrain Torres
Q3. Where in the world are you located?
Houston, Texas
Q4. What time zone are you located in?
Q5. How old are you?
19, 20 in March
Q6. Have you played Retail and if so, for how long?
Yes, I played from release until a few months into WOTLK
Q7. What times exactly can you GM? (Be specific please : Days/Times etc)
I'm generally available every day from 10-8PM. I  
Q8. How much time each day do you spend on WoW, on the forums or in-game?
At the moment not very much. I'm just beginning to get back into the game but as stated above I am available every day for most of the day
Q9. Have you had previous experience as a Game Master? And if so, on what server, and function?
Yes, I was Administrator on WoW-Junkies. It was a private server in early TBC reaching the top post of xtremetop100 for a while before a developer damaged the database. It was rebooted as Prototype-W which again met with huge success, then again as Beyond-WoW which again was a huge success. All in all the server ran for around two years and was one of the more widely known servers. I was administrator or "second in command" during those two years. I was in charge of the Game Masters, reviewing applications and making sure powers weren't abused. I was also a Game Master on Archaica which was a 100% Blizzlike vanilla server which I am sure you have heard of. I was known as Holysymbol both in-game and on the forums. It was shut down due to lack of support.
Q10. Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Efrain Torres, I am 19 years old born in Bogota, Colombia. I am an entrepenour. I have two stores which target the Hispanic market. We offer money transfers, check cashing, calling cards, and everything else that might make sales. I work full time and manage five employees between both stores. I find myself with a lot of free time infront of a computer.
Q11. Explain why you think you would be a good GM.
I've held the position before. I know the ins and outs. I am capable and take the initiative to find solutions to problems.
Q12. What interests you most about the GM position?
Keeping the community alive and happy. Vanilla was the highlight of my WoW career and what this server is doing is commendable. I would like to be a part of the team bringing this nostalgic experience back to life.
Q13. What positive additions could you (or do you already) make to the server/Community?
I know the game well, I know what problems the forum goers and gamers might come across and know how to dissolve what could otherwise be horrible situations for a specific person or the community as a whole. I could bring a lot to the table. Another helping hand.
Q14. We require all GM's to act professional at all times, this includes proper spelling and grammar.[We will not accept you if you have a lack of proper spelling and grammar]
Agreed. I'll do my best to avoid mispunctuation!

Q15. If you were going to submit a suggestion for us, what would it be?

Keep doing what you're doing. You've had great success in your current model. Keep the players happy. Have the staff and community be in harmony and everyone will benefit.
Q16. Events can get out of control, how would you pull a situation under control if it went bad?
Rational thinking, if there is something I absolutely cannot handle myself I would obviously seek advice or go to my superior. In the event something happens I would attempt to figure out what is happening. Talk to all of the parties involved. Etc, etc. Without an example it's difficult to specify what exactly I would do. Common sense goes a long way.
Q17. What do you think is the most important thing a GM can do?
Being there for the community. Following the set guidelines and making sure the server is running smoothly. The forums rules are being followed and that the players are never dissatisfied. I run a business and the old saying "Customers comes first" is absolutely true.
Q18. Do you know WHAT a gm does? Please explain.
We keep the community engaged and active. Make sure that any problems a user might come across are eliminated. We keep the game and fair and balanced place for everyone to play. On the lookout for people looking for an unfair advantage in the game. Customer service basically.
Q19a. What will you do if a Player asked you for help?
First figure out what the problem is. If it's something as simple as falling through the Earth or doesn't know where an NPC is then we both leave happy. If it has to do with cheating or scamming I would talk to all the parties involved and based off of the evidence acquired I would make a judgment call. Bugs and everything of the sort would simply be reported to the appropriate people
Q19b. And when you don't have time to help him?
If I absolutely had no time to help him I would talk to one of my peers. Make sure they are in good hands.
Q20. What can you do to help the server grow?
By being an active member of the community. People enjoy going to places where they can talk and express themselves with like minded individuals. To summarize just help in any way I can.

Any more questions, chat on the phone. Anything. Feel free!

As far as "Registered today, shoo!" is concerned. I feel I could be a valuable asset to the VanillaGaming team. When I decide on something I am dedicated to it.
