Main Character Name: Alacroy
Account Name: Xarecgosa
How long have you been on the server?: I really don't remember, I'd say anywhere from 2014-2015, I know it's before 2016 as I have posted on this forums on other accounts from early 2016.
Activity?: I have nothing to do all day, so I can be extremely active, guaranteed at least 3 hours every day, and more than likely 5-10, I live in the United States, more specifically around Florida, and my timezone is EST.
Have you ever had to deal with customers/players?: Yes, on another server, I was a Game Master for Light's Hope, and a Game Master & Community Manager for Elysium (I resigned from Elysium due to Corruption, and I resigned from Light's Hope because I disliked the GM Team and was tired of the drama there), as a Game Master on both of those servers, you are given a job to deal with players' requests (more specifically tickets) and sometimes handle chat (such as somebody spamming something such as the N-word in a major city, or something else of that sort), whenever handling those tickets you deal with a variety of things, anywhere ranging from players being stuck to a Raid Boss' loot needing to be reset, as a Community Manager I helped handle the Reddit and the Discord, I mainly was seen in the Discord though, and the role of a Community Manager is to always be professional, give announcements about things that are happening on the server, post events on their website such as when a raid is coming out, to moderate the chat, moderate the voice channels as well, and help players get on the server that may be having problems.
I believe this will help me on RPH because during my time on those two servers I learned quite a lot and I learned what being a Community Leader is about, and I can deal with a large number of players, take negative feedback from players and be able to handle it in a professional manner and help them whatever they may need.
Do you have any referees?: I am returning back to RPH, so I do not know of anyone who could vouch for me.
Write about your favorite period/subject of WoW lore (100 words or more): I'd have to say Cataclysm, and I may get a lot of negativity for this because I know Cataclysm is a very hated expansion, but whenever I say I enjoy Cataclysm, I enjoy Cataclysm for the impact and the events that happened. I really enjoy Cataclysm because of the impact it made on Azeroth, it was the first time players had seen Azeroth really been changed in such a huge way, and it really set the effect of the future expansions and a change in World of Warcraft (for good and bad). I also really enjoyed seeing a lot of lore about Dragons come out and see the Aspects take part as they are such a huge part of World of Warcraft.
Describe your favorite character, either yours or in lore (50 words or more): Nathanos Blightcaller, I really enjoy Nathanos Blightcaller because he is SUPER interesting in my opinion as he was the first and only ever human ranger lord, lore aside, I also really like him because (I really enjoy his model) and how he went from a very meaningless NPC to the Champion of the Banshee Queen who is seen multiple times, I just find it really cool that somebody so major was literally put aside which nobody would have ever really noticed him, until recently when he just became a badass and just became the Champion of the Banshee Queen, some people may have known him before Legion, which I didn't, and may see it from a different point of view and has always known Nathanos, but I didn't.
What would you do differently about the server?: Since I'm returning, I have not really had a grasp of the server yet again, and I know that may be a negative effect, but I would really like to put my experience to work here and work on another private server, especially since it's such a unique private server and that I've always loved roleplaying, I don't have to worry about it going down when Classic comes out haha.
Which as I said, I'm returning, so it's really hard for me to be a unique individual, I kind of want to just be normal, I don't want to be some kind of guy who wants to focus on one specific thing, I just want to put my time in, help the server in any way I can, and make quite a bit of friends. Which some of you may say I can do that already, because I think a normal player can help the server, but I think that's limited, and I really enjoy working on servers.
Write about yourself (100 words or more): My name is Brian Johnson, I'm not really afraid of letting people know that information, because after all, there's hundreds of Brian Johnsons out there in the United States, its a pretty typical name, and one of the whitest names you can probably think of. I was born in Long Beach, California and moved to the South, around the Georgia, Florida and Tennessee area. I love being apart of a Community and being a role model for players/being a Community Leader and being known in a Community. I've been told that I have great character, I'm extremely helping and I like to form bonds with players and keep friendships that last longer than when I work on that server.
I like to write, I don't have anything public or a full-on book, but I am writing something right now nothing major, a few other hobbies of mine are that I play League of Legends, kind of looking for something to get addicted to, even though that sounds bad. I like to have conversations about anything really, I also like getting to know random people and interacting with the community (Main reason I'm doing this, and why I was a Community Manager for other servers), more specifically on Discord, and as said before, making friendships with people that last longer than the server.
