    Hi guys and gals,
    my name is Richard. I'm 23 years young and i'm a Fraud Manager + Partial shop owner with my partner. I was born in England, moved to the Netherlands when i was three and moved to Germany (NRW) when i was 16, for a better future. Since then i have moved several times for jobs and I am now situated in Munich, where i will probably stay, since the beer is THAT good!

    In my freetime i enjoy sailing, weightlifting meeting with friends and ofcourse: Surfing.
    Surfing provides a calming environement to the somewhat aggressive gameplay of matchmaking. It's challenging and still a chill thing to surf and talk to people, which i like most about the 1-2 Beginner Server. I have met some really awesome people!

    I've been on this server for quite some time, I wasn't always active but i found my passion for surfing again. I must admit that at the beginning I've been a massive cunt, as some would say. I had more arguments than normal conversations. SIncere apologies to Yoda/Avaritia for that.
    Since then I've tried to better myself and be helpful and understanding, aswell as having some swell conversations with random people.

    Why am I applying and what can I do for the server?
    Seeing the latest developments on the server and wanting to better the environement I've thought about this for quite a while and asked a lot of questions. Here's my conclusion:
    I want to be a functioning member of the admin team because i've been on this server nearly everyday lately and I've seen mutliple people Mic-Spamming and/or offending people with racism/nazism. I'd like to work on bettering this with a calm temper and an understanding spirit.

    I do know, that i'm new to the Forum itself and i haven't been too active on discord, but im a normie, so i'm trying to adapt to it.

    I'd like to hear back from you guys,

    Swagbraham out.

    My experiences with swagbraham have been very positive so far. He's constantly helping people, uses his microphone a lot, and is usually just having fun with others. He makes people aware of the rules, and uses the !report function quite a lot aswell.

    Even though your past might not be so great, the "massive cunt" you used to be is nowhere to be found today.
    I personally think Swagbraham would do a great job if he were to become admin, i just hope you can keep up with your current activity and not let it drop down crazy amounts.

    You were very obnoxious and aggro in the server. You pushed the communities buttons a bit too much as well. But, I think that you still deserve a chance.
    You may not have been back to surf for that long but after getting advice from certain people to change your behavior, you actually did. You talk with people in a genuine nice way and try to help them when they are in need.
    As well, as you mentioned, since the current developments on the server, I also think that it is of need of new admins.
    I think you deserve a shot and I wish that you do the best job you can do as an admin, if you get accepted.

    Best of luck with this application.

    Cheers!

    I would just like to point out that he used to spam music and get really salty and offensive afterwards when muted. There also was a case of him avoiding the mute, going to an alt account and claiming that it was his brother. Couldnt be any more of a cheap excuse. Now, I havent connected to surf for a while and cant really judge anyone here but i want to stress that you may please keep his past in mind. He had 2 bans on him as well for repeated micspam and being rude (which were along with many other bans removed from the database).
    I wont vote because I dont know your behaviour these days but i was told from a regular that you didnt improve from back then. That you are still toxic and insulting. But from here Ill leave it to the community if they want you or not.

    PS: Replying to every message saying "Thanks" doesnt really look good. (Do it on discord maybe) Try to reply only to messages where you feel like you need to add something.

    Heya yoda,
    thank you for your critique and looking at it objectively. I admit that I was a huge fucker and was quite the offensive one.
    whenever I am offensive now, I try to make sure that it is someone I actually know for a longer period of time and know that they wont take it seriously but in a fun way. nevertheless I greatly appreciate the critique and will try to further develop myself and my behaviour.

    I'll take notice about not replying to every message to keep the thread clean aswell.

    "had to edit, since the writing was shit"

    thank you.

    I wont vote. I'm a tf2 admin, and my votes don't count towards your acceptance/denial. However, I like to volunteer my opinion.

    That being said, I don't go to csgo so I dont know how you are on the microphone. Morever, your chat log screams, "I don't care about being mature". Here's why I'm saying this. I am reading through pages (some half full), of smiley faces, insults, and lel's. As an admin, you need to be able to seperate yourself from inmaturity and not to involve yourself with cancer. I don't see you seperating yourself in your logs. Only recently, have you made attempts (find it odd that around the time of your app is when you start acting better) to change your words.

    What I read in your application and what I saw in your chat logs are two different people. Fix it. (-1 if I could vote).

    Hi,
    first of all, thank you for your reply.
    Like i stated above: I am working on my attitude and on my behaviour in general.
    What you've seen in the Chatlog might miss some context here and there, which doesn't mean that I can't learn from your constructive criticism.
    I still need to learn a lot and I'm willing to do so.

    I started acting better and helping people at said time, because i'm sincere about my application and got some tips from friends on how to improve my chat skills.

    I'll improve myself and will try to act more mature aswell.
    Thank you.

    Hi Yoda,
    I already changed a lot and i have improved aswell, yet I still think I can do better.
    I don't hope that people don't see my problems and behaviour.
    Showing that I want to learn and improve doesn't co-exist with that statement.
    However the community you and n0 deicde, if you believe I can do the above.
    If not, I will try and show a more mature me and reapply when i've fixed these issues
    in the given time.
    again, thanks for your criticism.
