    (1) Tell us about yourself:
    I've played PR for nearly 9 years, currently part of the BGB contact tournament (yet to play!), did a degree in a maths and I like to think I can squad lead well sometimes. I also fly with a keyboard.
    (2) Do you have any previous PR Administrative experience:
    Admin for the coop clan =GB= Ghosts of the Battlefield around the end of 2010/2011 and then was Head Admin for =RW= Reality Warfare (previously =GB= as mentioned) from some point in 2012 to beginning of 2013. It was about a year as HA and maybe 2 and a bit as a regular admin.
    (3) Why would you be a good PR Administrator:
    I would say I'm good at spotting rules when they're broken and usually know what's the real story from keeping track of the team's movement and what's going on overall.

    I notice the guy who's just latted a heli a main saying "Wasn't me!" with a rifleman kit, when I full well know he's just swapped kits, because I've been keeping an eye on him on map as he's been reported on team chat already (true story).

    I find that addressing problem/problem players via team chat is sometimes more effective than warns, so I will say short and simply what's what to them.
    (4) What qualities make a bad PR Administrator:
    I haven't familiarised myself with PRtracker yet, the one with the round playing live from a map perspective, so addressing a case of flag rushing/dod camping/road killing etc might be quite difficult for me at this current stage.

    No admining style is perfect and I of course try to avoid making mistakes/bad decisions.
    (5) What is your preferred role in a round of PR:
    Favourite is trans and good at everything else except armour/cas roles.
    (6) If you could change our ruleset in any way, what would you change:
    I would have no limits on roadkilling.
    (1) Someone is throwing smokes at main:
    Warn that player.
    (2) You get a report of an enemy HAT camping DoD:
    Try to identify the possible rule breaker, if no success then check the PR tracker and then post a report on the forums.
    (3) You see another administrator abusing their powers:
    If it's not my place to invite that admin to explain himself first of all, report it accordingly and if it's a particularly bad case, perhaps give a heads up to someone higher up so they can also see it happening. Also note down accurate details for the forum report.
    (4) A player joins the Admin TeamSpeak channel and angrily demands they be unbanned:
    Post the unban link in the chat and tell them that's where they should dispute it, not on TS.
    Do you agree with the Declarations:
    Yes
    (1) Is there anything else you would like to add:
    Hope you consider my application, thanks.
    (2) Tell us a joke:
    Wubba lubba dub dub!

    To save time/effort for everyone come the decision time, I'm going to ask to be removed as a trial admin. Disregarded IRL responsibilities when I initially applied, wanted to do admining again but doing nothing in post-grad life can't last forever. There's no way I'm able to put the time into admining for a realistic chance of being accepted. (ThE eNd)

    TL;DR
    Can't admin enough to pass trial, (as glory once said) nerf me
