Name: Dimensional_Duck Age: 18+ Rank: Adept Occupation: Stable enough to continue my current average playtime indefinitely. Timezone: Eastern (GMT - 5) (Though my play time reflects a nocturnal schedule currently not occupied by a staff member) How long have you been playing Minecraft: Since 2009. Application:
I've been around for some time now. The community is really fascinating, enjoyable. I've actively done as much as I can to help it on my own, from maintaining the collection as a public display of server history to applying for district manager so I could help in that department.
Currently, I feel as though my ability to help the community only goes so far and my workload is insufficient. I'd like to be able to help in more diverse ways and have my help be applicable in more situations.
This position should allow me a more dynamic set of tools to help more players in more situations, and I'd like to think I'd be a useful addition to the team.

Unless you've been living under a rock (which wouldn't be that weird in minecraft), you've certainly noticed Dimensional_Duck in the past few months. Duck has, in many ways, taken the server by storm. I have never seen such a new player accomplish so much and have such far-reaching goals.
The first time I visited his library, I was blown away by the idea and his encyclopedic knowledge of events that preceded him by several years. Duck is always interested in the server's history, players, and art. His team has put together a landmark that seems to have new things every single day.
As for helper, I think duck is a rather ideal candidate. I have never had a negative interaction with him. He radiates passion and is always enthusiastic to help others and share his knowledge. One of his biggest strengths for helper would be just how often he is on. Duck is always on it seems, especially at times when staff is not. Some extra chat moderation is always beneficial.
That said, I have a question for you Duck. How do you know you're here for the long haul? Adept is an early rank to apply at, and really that's my only concern.

Yo num. Kinda in a rush, but to answer your question: I'm here for the long haul for the simple reason that I have a highly dedicated mindset. This manifests in my relentless work in the district, constant work to my collection, my time here in general on Minecraft (11 years, yeesh), and a consistent pattern of years of dedication to all prior communities I'm passionate enough to hang around in. (Namely tf2 which I've been involved with since release too). Basically, sorry, you aren't getting rid of me any day soon.
Instant yes vote. I see ducko here as a stupidly curious being since he started hoarding books for his library. His commitment to his ever growing collection and dedication to the duties of shopping district manager deserves attention. Simplex staff could use his focus of expanding his and the playerbase's knowledge of the server to their advantage.
As a slav- I mean friend Of the irascible mallard, I fully endorse his petition to be appointed as a helper. He is friendly and entertaining, trustworthy and methodical, firm, but patient. I believe that these characteristics of helper on this server. In some ways (particularly late at night) he operates as a helper already. He greets the new members and encourages them to read the rules, etc.
Well I was waiting to see this post to appear. I like how it is written. Always helpfull and looking for other ways to help improve the community.
I think that duck stays for a lot of time on simplex. Every time there are new players coming so always more stuff that players make to collect. So that is his purpose to stick around for the long term.
The best thing about duck is he can get along with almost everyone. And if he can help with things on the server he enjoys doing it.
So you got a yes from me, a well deserved yes
Why destroying things, if you can make beautifull things.
I hadn't played on this server for a few months, and after joining in, Duck says he's a big fan of my work. Not knowing what that meant, he showed me his collection and various items that I unknowingly contributed. I was impressed both because he had those items but also because he remembered that he had them even though he had never met me before (as far as I know.) But Duck has talents beyond his oddly specific memory and passion for history. He always interacts with players with kindness and the transition from player to helper wouldn't even be noticable. He knows all the rules and I think he would make a great addition to the team based in the average amount of interaction I've had with him.

Holy chicken strips Mr.Ducc I've been waiting for you to apply! You're one of those people who are just the perfect pick for helper and I think you're the best candidate right now! You 100% have a YES from me! Good lucc ducc!
