https://tangoworldwide.net/index.php?topic=36500.0 this one I wasn’t put as a host but I ended up running because nobody could come up with any ideas 

I also had a dark rp event I helped a fun run but the post was deleted due to it being a seasonal Christmas event. There was other events I had but due to lack of contact with divisional staff they all failed.

 

Why I think I will be a good Creative Team member?

I have had a lot of experience with running events in the past and notice not a lot of events happen. I also try to make the events more creative most of the stuff in my events just tend to happen on the spot. I feel as with the experience I have of being an event coordinator and the knowledge I have on almost every game mode might help in the future too.

 

Would I consider making profit: Yes

Hello @Bobby Tarantino II!

 

I like the examples you’ve listed, you show lots of promise! Will you be alright with taking a test? 

Sure I’m working to find some examples, but I think we all deleted the breach thing I wrote.

I apologize for the long wait, @Bobby Tarantino II

Here's your test,

1. Please explain in detail how you would how you would go about planning and maintaining the next MOTM (Music of the month).

Good luck!

Well for starters I would go about trying to figure out a theme for motm I would ask around see what people want. I would personally pick rap so lets say I picked rap this is what I would do

 

Hello and welcome to GFL’s MOTM for the month of (whatever month)  

 

This months theme is rap  

 

Rules are as follows:

            - Submissions must be less than 5 minutes

            - Make sure your rap doesn’t involve anything racist/inappropriate/anything that might                               get someone offended  

 

Post submissions below or send them to me privately on steam/discord/forums before the deadline (deadline here)  Voting will go up (date here)  

 

After that I would keep a list of all those who gave me a submission. After the deadline I will wait a day or two to make a voting post.  For the voting post I would just put a list of all their submissions and have a poll. No need to justify why you voted for them. I know it will cause favoritism, but if this is a concern I would plan to make a small committee of people who enjoy music and would be a good judge. The committee would also have a say on who wins. Both the winner from voting and the committee will receive a prize.  For the voting on [data expunged] I would just make a post saying  

 

MOTM voting for (whatever month)

 

(Name of the person here) submission- (link here)  

 

Voting ends (date here)  


Good luck to all who submitted something

   

There would also be a poll with each persons name you could clearly change votes up until the end

 

That is basically what I would do to plain it and maintain it

I have a lot of problems with how you planned this, for a lot of exploitation can be an occurrence. 

 

A) You're "allowing" favoritism, under the concern that you should have real judges, which could, in turn, cause favoritism depending on the people who judge.

B) People's names should be kept private, for the reason that, again, people might vote for their friends.

C) You should have a backup plan for if/when things go south.

D) The Media Team, in my opinion, should not have a vote in an "OTM" contest. They are the hosts, not the judges.

E) This just seems a bit rushed to get out the door, with no out of the box thinking involved.

 

With your work shown in the actual application, it all seems too basic and repetitive, as if you took 2 seconds to put each out.

 

Something from the Media Team should have it's own pizzazz outside the other parts of the forums. I mean, hell, we have the people to make what you'd need in our art team.

 

Maybe you'd be a good addition, but i'm not too sure based on this. -1

A) You see you can say judges cause favoritism, but if judges are hand selected then this wouldn’t be a big concern in the end. I used to watch aotm (admin of the month) contest and each month people would win off favoritism. I won and all I did was abuse during that month I was even demoted at one point, but I won because so many people knew who I was. I was even told that I shouldn’t have won by so many, but I was told I only won because I was well known/liked by the community. Technically you can have a system where if caught asking people to vote for you that you will be banned from all future contest for X amount of time.

B) I mean you can say they should be kept private but at the same time it’s like they worked hard on it and deserve recognition for it. Yes I can release the names after, but let’s be real people will end up being told anyway who wrote what anyway. 

C) If things go south I’m pretty good at just coming up with something last second don’t worry. I taught religion for 1 student and well nothing was ever planned. There was 2 teachers for 1 student and we just had to make things up to pass the time for usually half the class.

D) Even if you host something you should still have a say. You could argue it might cause a biased opinion in the end but most people wouldn’t even know who voted who until after they vote. I just vote and then after I see that I voted the same as so and so

E) Of the month contest are more of stuff that aren’t the best to experiment imo. I thought of having people perform live in teamspeak or discord but getting that set up would be a pain. Most out of the box ideas for this aren’t the greatest.

Here was my list of rejected ideas:

A rap battle tournament style where you would vote who is better after someone went In discord/teamspeak even thought about having people submit me them then posting them for all to vote. The idea was shut down because of how much perfect timing must be set and how I feel like it would fail

Have what you could call an American idol sort of thing but again time isn’t the greatest and that would probably fail 

This one was my favorite idea, but I felt someone who had a lot of irl friends would force them to help them win. I thought about having each person upload their song to YouTube and seeing who could get the most likes in 2-3 weeks. As you can see how this would be an unfair one.

The final idea I had was to have everyone submit me a song and I personally would show the songs to people and have them vote on it. Now these people have nothing to do with gfl it would be my friends and I wouldn’t have a way to prove I actually did it.

Those were failed ideas so I just thought if it ain’t broke don’t fix it

Well yes my examples are not the most creative, but in the end they turned out way different. I don’t have ss, but my one event on ZE that was supposed to be normal turned into hide and seek. I also had someone attempt to make a map look more Christmas themed on GW for the Christmas event and had gotten most of the game changed to a Christmas theme, but the server was shut down due to funding issues I was told.

Allowing favoritism in your test

Poor grammar and English

Well, first off, I'd advise you to think twice before implementing favoritism - it's not really recommended and things could go pretty bad, in my opinion.

I'd recommend you to get this browser extension, called, Grammarly. It'll be very helpful when it comes to typing events. 

Protip: Never, ever rush to get everything done. Prepare and take things slow. Rushing often shows how unprepared you can be.

There's not really much to say as of now - if you can, I'd advise you to use what I said for the improvement. My vote will remain as is for time being.

Good luck!

Previous experience

I know he plays Gmod mainly, I see him as able to bring in more people into the dead Gmod servers.

Charmayyy did a good job at saying lots of them, for starters the favoritism, I'm all for making a poll, but maybe we could make it a private poll, in which every account is allowed to vote once, and the vote cannot be changed. Let the people pick, and in the case of a tie, make another poll that chooses the winner, I don't see the need for a judge. I'm not sure, but the even seems broad too; the rules are "post them below or send them to you privately" which seems like a problem because the more well-known members will win, maybe keeping it private and having the people upload it or send it to you as a .mp4, and you being able to work with the Video Editing media team sector and creating a voting video(s) in which no one knows who the contestants are. Maybe also add a rule that if someone is caught saying "vote for me, I'm number 1" for example, that they get disqualified, or something of that nature so that there is no favoritism (not saying that there is going to be a perfect 100% flawless system, but it will prevent people from letting others vote based upon the best choice instead of friends). Lastly, maybe adding something where someone may only enter once ever X number of months, this is mainly to let more people win, and in the case that there are people rigging the system, it allows for people not to constantly rig the system and win every month.

Also you seem to be a bit inactive.

Basically read the Cons I sort of included it in there.

Be more active

Although the event seems a bit vague, with some improvement I see you being able to join the team.

@Ben Roy for the grammar issue I typed everything on my phone. Don’t worry I have good grammar. I will have more examples soon because I just became event staff for a scp rp server. I’m inactive because there is no need for me to play any servers at the moment. Also like I said I do events for a scp rp server now, but I will become more active after school cause it’s a bit crazy right now. I would still be able to do 1-2 events per week, but I won’t be active on servers until I am done with school.

Old application, "bumping" it, giving you 2 days to answer (I'm cleaning up media team requests/apps). A simple "Open" or "Close" is fine, just want to know you're still active.
