    Why do you want to become an admin?: I like to help other people, and I see that there's always a demand for admins, to rollback griefer changes, help resolve conflicts, etc. I'd like to help out in that regard. Also, it may sound cliché, but I really would like to make the server a better place. I think the mods and staff do this by quickly taking a hold of a situation, mute a player, talk to them privately, etc. before things can get too far out of hand. It would be nice to have more staff to help increase pawncraft's rep, and to make sure it was as great a server as it can be.


    Why do you think you should become an admin?: I'm a pretty happy guy :) I've played minecraft for quite a while now, and still find it fun, so I'll be around pawncraft for a while. I'm slow to anger, and have a lot of patience, which I know is a requirement - kudos to the other staff for endless patience when dealing with new players. I don't PvP, which doesn't really matter that much, but it would be easier to resolve those types of conflicts as a neutral party. I can handle responsibility, and I've met several other staff through mumble and through working on the 1.9 project. I have a healthy respect for the rules and an understanding of why server rules are important. I realize that the server should be a fun, safe place to play for all ages, and will help see that it remains so.


    Have you ever been an admin before (In any game)?: Ran different version of my own CSS server, minecraft server for a handful of friends.


    Anything else you would like us to know: I work in the computer industry, and I'm familiar with managing linux servers, familiar with java which minecraft is written in, both of which COULD come in handy (not necessarily mind you).

    I dont think i can remember i single bad thing about jkerr, he was a massive help in the 1.9 project, he seems to always be on the server and be happy to help and he isnt like the other 1337 members, as far as i can tell he doesnt constantly pvp other members whilst steling their stuff and making their time miserable...VOOUCH!

    Jkerr has outshone himself as a helpful and mature member of Pawncraft and certainly deserves to be staff, but I think going straight to admin might be too much of a leap. I'd love to see what he can do as a moderator though, so vouch for that at least :)

    We didn't have mods back in the days either. They were either admin or not, no in-between mod. Nobody said it was a huge leap.

    Jeff would make a good addition to the Admin staff he has all the qualities one needs to do the job and get it done well. I think he can easily bypass moderator as he has all the tools to become a Admin.

    Just because a person wears the 1337 clan tag does not make them a bad person. just because there has been bad blood on the way somewhere does not mean all 1337 are the same. yes we are a different clan than the rest, yes we voice our opinions aloud but at least with 1337 you know where you stand and you would get a truthful answer.

    Heh. Funny how you're quick to defend when a joke is made.

    Auto Denied : Too Old. Amber's our resident dinosaur. *snicker snicker*

    Vouch from me. Never seen you cause as problem, I have seen you help others, and as far as I'm aware, didn't abuse the trust given to you with the 1.9 Project.

    Also, wanted to point out that not involving yourself in PVP does definitely help. Admins / players seeking adminship that go around and Mass PVP usually end up with a demotion or denial.

    I absolutely vouch him! Outstanding attitude, and extremely helpful. The more old folks we have on here the better anyways. I mean really, how does it look for older people to play with 15yr olds... that's borderline pedo territory. :)
