caution join date: i've been around since the first incarnation of caution so i don't quite remember those join dates, but i did follow the move to jcink and joined cttw on july 17, 2015.
ignite your bones - current administrator. i've been a staff member on ignite since january 2016 when i joined as a mod before being promoted to admin in april of 2016. i took a brief hiatus due to extremely personal reasons from february 28, 2017 until may 7, 2017 when i rejoined the site and staff.
--- i feel these links below are slightly outdated at this point, but i wanted to include them just in case. ---
caution 2.0 - august 2014 to may 2015. i was on the interview team from august until april 2015 when i switched to advertising. i ended up stepping down from the staff team in may 2015.
shine - december 2014 to july 2015. i was a peacekeeping mod until i became the peacekeeping global mod in april 2015 (if my dates are correct) until i stepped down in july 2015.
a thousand fireflies - january 2014 to november 2016. i was an advertising mod from january 2014 until november 2014 when i briefly switched to security for a two week stint before being promoted to global moderator, also in november 2014. i joined the admin team in february 2015. i remained an administrator until i stepped down in november 2016.
examples of work: although this isn't super relevant to the position that i'm applying for, i have a link to my graphics gallery in my mini-profile. i also have a link in my signature to psd's that i've provided on cttw. as i grow more comfortable and knowledgeable within photoshop, i plan on releasing more psd's as well as taking graphic requests. in my spare time, i'm also learning how to code so i'm hoping to eventually release some codes, but it won't be until months from now as i'm very much so a beginner.
test run: member X has bumped their advertisement early. as a moderator, you need to send them a message reminding them about the bumping rules so that they are aware of the issue as well as letting them know what action you are taking (as a hint: for a first time problem, you might just delete their early bump!).
please write the pm that you would send to member X in your chosen situation.
Hello there! I'm Marie, one of Caution's advertisement moderators. <p>
While browsing the advertising section, I noticed that you bumped your advertisement early. As stated in our advertising rules (located here), we have a rule that states you may only bump your advertisement seven days from the last post, regardless of whether that post was made by a caution mod or a staff member on your site.
Due to this, I have deleted your early bump post. If this becomes a recurring problem, further action may be taken - including but not limited to archiving your advertisement and/or not allowing your site to advertise with Caution.
Marie & The CTTW Advertising Team
what's your favourite part of roleplaying?: there's so much that i love about roleplaying that i can't pick just one. my first favorite part is character creation. i enjoy being able to work on characters that have in-depth stories and then write and develop them. i find it so much fun to bring them to life so to speak. i love, love, love this part partially due to the research that is sometimes involved. i love to make sure things are as realistic as they can be so i'm constantly learning about other cultures, religions, work environments, etc as i begin working on a new character.
my other favorite part is making connections with my fellow roleplayers and creating friendships. i've met some of the best people from roleplay and i'm so thankful to have them in my life. some of them have been there for me more than people in my offline life, which is at times mind boggling, but it's so nice to have connections and friendships with people.
tell us about you: hello hello!! my name is marie and i'm twenty-four years old, turning twenty-five in june. i live in the midwestern united states and lemme tell you, i can't wait to leave the midwest behind. i'm currently a college junior studying for my bachelor's degree in psychology and i'm so excited and nervous at the same time. i'm currently unemployed, but i'm very much so hoping to change that soon because i miss making money tbh. i'm obsessed with the good place, marvel's agents of shield, anything marvel lbr, and i'm into probably far more fandoms than i should be.
i enjoy spending time with my family, cuddling with my cat, video games, watching youtubers, writing, reading, and watching netflix. i love starbucks and coffee in general. in fact, i'm drinking a cup of coffee right now. i have a tendency to sometimes get carried away and ramble so i do apologize if the length of this application is completely insane! i also love to use exclamation marks and get easily excited about the smallest thing.
2017 was a year of reflection for me and i feel as though i've changed a lot about myself. i'm slowly starting to become more confident in myself and my abilities. i don't react anymore with the facts and i have a habit of sometimes playing devil's advocate so that both sides to the story are heard and all of the facts are analyzed. in the past couple of years, i feel as though i've really matured. i know that i still have a lot of work to go, but i'm becoming much happier with who i am and accepting myself - flaws included.
anything else we might need to know: i check cttw almost daily from my phone at the very least, but i love to lurk inside of the roleplay discussion forums and offer my input whenever i think it's relevant or i have a pet peeve i need to get off my chest.
currently, my family and i are planning on moving in march, but it's not a move across states. we're simply moving out of our apartment building into a house. we'll have our own washer and dryer back!!! i'm more excited about that than i probably should, but y'all, it's so not fun having to share two washers and two dryers with seven other units in our building.
anyways, i digress. i don't see myself having to take an extremely long absence - perhaps only a two week absence at most. since we live in a tiny apartment, we don't have a lot of space so packing is going to be extremely easy. i feel confident in my abilities that i'll be able to handle staffing on cttw during the move; however, i completely understand if this makes you all hesitant in hiring me onto the staff team.
