    I could see why bias is a concern, but that worry is going to be present in any staff applicant. Everyone has their own town and bias will always be a concern. However my loyalties lie to friends more than a town. Yes I’m close with red but I’m also close with people like chocco and diamonds, and I would treat each one of them equally just as I would with the general populace of the server. My decisions as a potential staff member would be to further the well-being of the server as a whole, not serve the needs of a select few.

    I was debating whether or not posting on this staff application, because I know that anything I could say here could easily be dismissed as bias. I will do my best to view this thread from a completely unbiased view.

    From the time I've known Acid, which has spanned several years, but I have gotten much closer to him in the last year, he has always been mature, friendly, and easy to joke around with. He doesn't take everything up the rear, but he also knows where to draw the line. He's friendly with the community as a whole, even Lemon, which just baffles me. He is always approachable, available, and easy to talk to, and he knows when to be mature and when not to. I feel like I can always talk to him, and that's the way it's always been, even when I was 14 and his name was "Mollyfarrel".

    As for bias, we forget he was in Nexus for much longer than he's been in Drastia. He also has no problem voicing his problems with the members of Drastia, of which I will not name names. Furthermore, I've put him in charge of foreign relations because I know he won't let his personal relationships with certain somebodies (cough moose cough), affect his dealings with those nations and those people. He's always proven himself able to work past differences he has had with people, and work on the job at hand.

    I've also always found him to be dedicated. One could say that I give him a lot more to do than anyone else in my nation, and that's simply because he gets it done more than anyone else. I might step on a few toes here, but Acid is one of the most if not the most hard-working members in the nation, and that I've ever met (Sorry Vali).

    Wow changed my mind about you Acid (again) recently I was meh and if Red's suggestion comes into play, I don't see how you could be bias towards Drastia. Even after Acid "left" Nexus he was still loyal to his friends and didn't leak any info to me for war and I respect that, he also eventually told me Trueblue315 was an alt and the best insider. +1

    I hope I'm not overstepping my boundaries with this, but I remember when I was staff and the #1 reason that you were denied last time to make it onto the staff team was the fear that you would have an extreme bias towards Drastia. I also know that you claim that you would not have one, but it can clearly be seen that most everything that you do and say is in the interest of Drastia. You refrained from replying to my report on Redtilldead, even though you were not only there for his rule-breaking, but you even denounced it several times in private chat. The reason you didn't reply is because you want to stay in good favor with Redtilldead, your long time friend and ally, and you want to stay a part of Drastia. Even if you don't see a bias, I do and I know many others do as well, and I think I would need to see a definite difference in the way that you carry yourself in regard to affairs surrounding Drastia in order to completely support you as staff.

    So both red and moose have brought up good points, and for me having both had good and bad interactions with acid over the past year or two he is mainly a mature, well handled person when it comes to civ and what he does, the only times I thinks it's gotten bad is when he jumps onto a bandwagon but that pretty much being it, in regards to any bias I feel and see no need for a concern about it as he as red said is in charge of drastias foreign relations stuff, so it can be applied in a sense between player and staff along the same line. So going through a checklist:
    Maturity:✅
    Unbiased:✅
    Professionalism:✅
    Staff material:✅
    Is an animal:✅
    My +1: ✅

    You have a retard bell for me.

    Other than that you’re one of the only people on the server I’d be comfortable with having staff. Just don’t be biased towards the Neutraltards
