Top choices(no order): Yurisaki, ivanKaliayev, Backlash22, LionDM, Pan2011
Warning: wall of text version! yeah, the 3 line thing can't happen, too many people I don't know enough about.
This will be my space for criticizing people...dun kill meeeee....
Okay I lied, I got biased at some point :3
black - no decision
"re-applying gamesages" (quotes for a reason, since this is only in theory)
: I'm assuming he'll be one of the only few that will take up position as a GS again. He's done a lot for the community overall during his time as a GS, although nothing of real note that I've seen in the last month or two. He'll most likely be a good person to add back to the team as he was a member of the team for a fairly long time. Some of his stances towards topics have been iffy, but he is overall very knowledgeable and very fair in his decisions. While some may have lost faith in giving the vote to him, he'll still be needed as a member of the team, in my opinion.
ps. Stop being such a tease :p
Iyasu7: Eh, this is one of those 50/50 ones. Your knowledge would be an asset to the team, however given your performance from how I've seen, there are stronger candidates. Taking the quiet route can go either way. Although it has worked for you in the previous selection(although you did disappear), I am not sure if it will work for this selection. Bump up your overall activity just a little bit(anywhere from a few minutes to an hour would help towards you), and I'll give you full approval. Not much else to really say.
: Do I have to go into details? Basically on the same level as Yuri, only without the troll.
cmstache: A guy with good intentions, but may fall short. You have an overall good record that I have seen. You have done quite a bit for the newer/less known players from what I have seen.(even with my short time in Shu) Events and such would be nice(especially ones I can do, but that's just me). In all honesty, it's really hard for me to come up with feedback about you without becoming too biased.. T_T
lazypanda6: Friends...why do you have to be so hard for me to be the "pretend to not know you" person..
Well, I'm not fully sure if I should support or deny you. While you do help ingame, your forum presence is lacking. It is true that some won't know you, but that will be the same no matter who it is(unless you are someone like Yurisaki). The part that will hinder you the most, is your lack of presence on the forums, especially for being a player for a little over two years.
JudgementStar: So I left this on reservation to think about it, and I got questioned for it.. Overall, you have some very good characteristics, but some flaws that could break you. Having former GSs able to help you is a plus, especially if they were family members. Your intentions for the community seem good, although I do not know how far they will go. A variety of events would be nice though...
: Yes, I will admit to have criticized you in the past, but you would still have many of the skills needed for the DWO community. Yes, you do troll, but how many would really care from what I've seen? Not many words are needed from me on this one.
Hanbei.Chan: lolwut? -place holder so I can go in order, may delete this later-
You have a case of Yoona in my eyes, which can go either way.(perform well above what anyone expected, or you quit after a while, or both...) While you will try, going by that you've said in your post, you may not have the basic knowledge for GS. Your events actually seem fair, and I wish I had the requirements to compete in them T_T While I may disapprove you, I do see potential in you.
Alright, you have lot of good things going for you this round. Your contributions with the guides and some other topics(although a little overdone imo), have shown how dedicated you are willing to be. Your attitude towards insults can hinder you and your decisions as a GS greatly. The choice is yours to hide behind a mask, or head down the path of a few of the previous GSs that have had this fault. If the community can't speak for the rest, I don't know what to say...
: You've pretty much done everything legal up to this point. I wouldn't mind having a non-confront based GS on the team, especially if he's been on it once before and was not kicked. You're a fun dude to be around, and will not rage as badly as some other candidates. You've done much in trying to get people to play other modes so the game is not lopsided on confront. Although those intentions might fall a little short in the long run..
AlabasterJones: Pretty much shaped up since I originally met him. Brushed off on me as a troll at first, but he does have good intentions. If elected as a GS, he'll probably do a decent job. Our ingme experience with eachother has been slim to none(mainly due to being in different factions 90% of the time), so I can't actually give much feedback on you.
: As a whole, ChaoRa is more less ready for the role imo. He's played all the modes, and seems to be ready to adapt to whatever is ahead of him. Again, outside of survivals, I haven't really seen what you can really do(since again, I'm in a different faction until recently)
: I don't have anything negative to say about you overall, since I can't comment on activity(time difference being too great and all). Although you don't seem to offer much, the attempt of reaching out to the GMs will still be a great help.
kazblade21: Good intentions, bad way of executing the written part. He does tend to troll from time to time, and has been known to rage on shoutbox sometimes ._. Nothing really of note imo.
Dalis29: Not really going to comment on at this time. Good intentions, although what he can do should he be accepted as a GS is unknown to me. His shoutbox and ingame activity seem good, although his posting could be better.
: As a whole, this is mostly based off of the fact I don't know much about you. New blood might be nice though. I don't think you have the basic knowledge of the game to be a GS though at this time...
: Totally legit.
: Since I approved ChaoRa, I'll approve you too... As a player from another server, you may have a slight edge over most applicants. Being one of the people in Shu to help people(along with a few other applicants such as the Khans and GoofTroop) will be good, however I fear too many Shu people will end up tipping the scale, sort of like what happened when too many GSs were from the same guild.
Taladir: The only thing that would really hold you back, would be the post requirements to be a volunteer normally. I don't have much to really say about you..
STCNM: I can't say much for you, other than you're pretty similar to Sausage... However, your temper will be the breaking point. A GS needs to be unbiased and seem unaffected by the insults, since you will be a target as one. If you feed the trolls what they want, you will bring the team down as a whole.
: Good intentions, low post count for being around for three years(although the game has only been around for only two and a half at best)
Keado: Lack of activity will bring you down, since admin'ing a Facebook group will only go so far. Decent activity and such ingame. Your will to help is strong, however you may not have the full activity as a good Gamesage needed(as stated a line or two up)
HackSlash52: Nice guy and all, seems to be able to handle the job, but the post count may be the make/break for you.. besides...what about Kimo? Also, forum alts might be slightly bad for you in the long run..although they are great for regular members depending on who you are.
: ...you're making no sense to me... @_@
While I haven't seen you around as much on forums, you have still been there for Shu. Think I've had more interaction with you ingame than I have with Baster..(offtopic comment ftw, will come back to this later)
: not much I can say for you, good or bad..
update: looking at recents posts, his overall attitude does not seem fit for the role..
: this is probably the first time I have seen your account on forums.
: I guess this is where forum accounts can be screwed, since the account that is applying is not the one you commonly use for posting.
Apps from all the YouMads(just going to put you guys all in one room, one post, k?)
You guys care, I don't doubt you or your apps, you guys just troll way too much.
in this category: sixlibra, Artanisx10
: You might feel better with Amy's I Rod and all, but you might want to return it at some point.. I can't take you seriously, sorry..
: Took me a while to disapprove you...your basic knowledge overall needs work. While your activity is good and all, but that fails if you do not have the brain to back it up..
Allan the pk
: As a long time member, you would have seen everything. Activity key however, to be a gamesage. If you are going to be away for up to a month at a time frequently, it is honestly as bad as not being there at all. I fear that you would eventually disappear from the forum, as this has happened with quite a few gamesages in the past. There have been also a few cases where you have been involved in a verbal fight. I say get your real life self together first before you make time for gamesage work..
Tyrael2600: hey look, an Albany guy.. ;-; anyways, you seem very helpful when I was in Wu, although I am not sure if you'll make the cut with your forum activity...as it seems well below average compared to other applicants. Although having one or two people who know the other servers(such as you, Pan or Yuri) would help in its own way, although any more than the said amount and it turns into the other server playtime, which will be bad in the long run.
: One of those guys where I can't really say much, just bad impressions.
: While the time of being with the game can be waived, I think it's actually best if you wait a cycle and work on your knowledge of the game. You've done what a few other applicants have done, but I fear it's not enough as of right now.
: Where there are rainbows, there is a regret. Good intentions, but I've never really seen you around recently to begin with x_x I say become more fair about listening to people before jumping the gun on them, this will be your major fault in your communication with the community.(I can use past experience to relate to this as well.)
: CP heavy guy? That can go either way, however, I do feel that your recent contributions would be enough to show how much you care about this game(especially since the GMs have been a little busy to post some of the schedules and patches)
sasukegg: Not much of a forum presence, but you are a friendly guy.
: I'm tempted to bump you up to neutral just to annoy you. But anyway, your lack of activity, playing other games and bashing of other players is a no no. You still seem to have some bad blood in this community, I suggest that gets taken care of first before you attempt GS x.x The other faults can be smoothed out after.(You know that r5 cape of Valor's? You might want to return that for starters)
: I like you as a person, but as a GS, I just have a bad feeling. Lack in overall activity as a whole is also an issue with you.
destruction259: Toyotaaaaaaaaaaa...making it hard on me to give you feedback too... think your engine is better as a member though..
ps. nice sig
: You have a lot on your plate, but if its even partially done, there's hope. Your event skills would be a nice sight within the community as well. Bump up the activity just a bit(and maybe ingame knowledge like Panderp. said)
: Pretty unknown to me, not much to really say.
: Probably one of those forum stalkers, since this is probably the first time I've seen your account as well.
: Eh, I'm going to disapprove you actually. Your intentions are great for the community's favor, but that can potentially kick out other respectful crafters. Also, with too much power, you may end up heavily corrupt. If that ends up being the case, can bring the whole team down. The team also needs people in overall knowledge, not just for crafting purposes.
: she is an overall very friendly member who doesn't like to cause trouble, she, in my opinion, is similar to yinyangmatrix. The main difference however, is the lack of event experience here, and overall more active on forums.
starwolf931: prefer to not comment on this one, as I don't see him, but know he plays from time to time
Backlash22: you had to apply when I'm away? Anyway, your activity was lacking as you said, but it is picking back up. Dunno if I should approve you or not though, as you are late for the show(applications)
note: anyone who posts in the wrong topic will not be commented on.
