Have you previously been a playtester for the mod?
How often would you be able to test the mod?
Usually I am able to play every day; however I attend a demanding high school, so maybe every other day or even third day. However, the summer is approaching which means I may be able to play every day for quite a while.
How often can you play multiplayer games?
Generally, every time you see me online I am able to play a multiplayer game. Generally, mind you.
Can your internet bandwidth handle you downloading several gigabytes of data?
Do you know how to download and install programs on your computer without someone standing over your shoulder?
What is your age? (There is no age minimum but Immediate disqualification if we find you lied about your age. Mental maturity is the key for making the rank.)
Fourteen/14. It's on the SoTP Profile, as well.
What is your state or (if not USA, country) and timezone?
South Carolina, Eastern Standard Time.
Do you speak any non-English languages?
A bit of Spanish, but not a lot. I can maintain a conversation, but I cannot speak fluent Spanish by any means.
How long have you been a Halo fan? (List time periods or years, not "oh a long time")
I played Halo CE in ~2006, and I sincerely had no idea what Halo was. Then, in about 2008 or 2009 I began to play Halo and read the lore and such, and then I started to take an interest. In early 2010 I was pretty much a lore expert and had played most of the games, read a few books etc.
Why do you think you'd be a good playtester for the mod and what do you think you bring to the table that other applicants do not?
I do not claim to know much about coding- that is why I haven't asked to apply for a position as a developer. I do know how to use some files and know how to find them, and can change code when I know what I am looking for. Even without lots of coding experience, I am quite good at spotting small glitches and mistakes throughout the game (and I believe that is what a playtester is supposed to help with). In fact, I made a list of things a while back that I saw were mistakes in the texts or things that I thought could be improved. I don't know if you have actually seen it, but I personally think it could be, at the very least, marginally helpful.
I can help with gameplay balancing and give suggestions as to how the factions could possibly be balanced based on my knowledge of the lore, and maybe give suggestions for abilities and such that others may not have. I've been told that I have a high "ideaphoria", which means that I can come up with many ideas in a short period of time. This may be just psychobabble to you, but I think that it enhances my ability to actually come up with ideas that I believe could enhance or fix the mod.
I hope you take me into consideration.
EDIT: I just was reading the entries of other applicants, and I saw somebody who mentioned that they were a perfectionist. If you are looking for perfectionists who can spot the smallest mistake, then I'm pretty sure I fit the bill. I'm most likely the biggest pedant on the forum.
