    1. Yes actually! I was very determined and wanted to make a difference in the server, there were obviously moments I was doubtful but overall part of me was confident (without being cocky though xD)
    2. Yep! :p
    3. 17
    4. All of the above xD
    5. Nope! Always been tough on my bans for everyone. Lost many friends because of it xD
    6. They just randomly pop up xD it depends on if I’m trying to be completely unnoticed or use funny/cute nicks, maybe even some I would’ve considered if my name wasn’t _PineappleDeath_.
    7. Quite literally never!
    8. Too many times to count xD I’ve never really cared much, I went along with my day and completely ignored the negativity. I’ve never let it impact me much at all actually (perhaps back whenever I was younger/starting off as a staff member but I’ve grown careless to the nasty comments.)
    9. Yep, but not often at all xD depended on my mood, if I was trying to chill, etc. It’s never been out of bitterness though (if that makes sense) - it took me awhile to do that though, for the first 2 years of being a staff I felt this tremendous amount of constant guilt if I wasn’t there for absolutely everybody at all times. Thankfully during the 3rd year I’ve felt much more free :two_hearts:
    10. Nope! Though one person irl does :)

    1 - 75% Yes 25% No. I remember the day when Házárd and Plushtrap were talking about hiring me as a new staff member in April 2017 and Házárd even private messaged me that him and Plushtrap agreed that I could be a staff member. Fun Fact : I've been a BrokenLens staff since 2nd December 2017 but there was some kind of misunderstanding that got my Helper rank taken away. ( not because I broke the rules )
    2 - Yes
    3 - 17
    4 - A little bit frustrating for me since I'm working as the Build Team Leader, moderating the server in Asian timezones, and school life
    5 - No
    6 - I don't use it that often, but it is still a very helpful command to trick and confuse hackers with names such as eodkmsekej1992 or just to mess around and prank somebody
    7 - No
    8 - Gossips and some very inappropriate sexual harrasment from a specific person, but I just let it go and ignore
    9 - Yes. I want to give a chance for other staff to do their work / when I was busy building maps
    10 - Yes. Parents and cousin

    1. I wasn't sure- I knew I was a good builder but wasn't sure I was good enough- I spent 3 months building in a world- making various buildings etc with lots of terrain, detail etc (built a mountain in a flat world by hand) when I finally went to submit my build application the pictures wouldn't load - I only got one to work so I made a conversation with diavent and showed her a few more screenshots and thankfully she accepted me
    2. Yup :)
    3. N/A
    4. It can be all of these things but mostly rewarding to help people
    5. Definitely no (I have lost some "friends" this way)
    6. Ham and I usually use matching names like "CallAnAmbulance" and "ButNotForMe" or "Hotel" and "Trivago"
    7. Just to ban myself or Ham
    8. Definitely hurtful messages- people can be cruel but you have to grow a thick skin and just roll with it
    9. I am usually playing with Ham and he goes if I don't or vice-versa- The only time I ignore them is when I am helping someone with a password reset or if there are many staff on
    10. Nope (my dad would probably make me delete Minecraft) My cousins know though


    *@pinkvodqa I got my belly from eating all the snacks in your backpack!!

    I wanna answers these questions too.

    1. 70% No and 30% yes. I've always wanted to become a Builder here since 2019 but my building skills aren't that good before so I practiced a lot on building. The best builder also helped me practice my building skills, when the builders application got opened I applied but got rejected/denied so I practiced and practiced and on the latest application for builder, I gave it a shot for the second time and didn't expect that I'll get accepted.
    2. Yushh
    3. Im only 14
    4. Being a Builder isn't hard but my schedule of joining the server is hard since our school is about to end and I am aiming for a high grade.
    5. Me cant ban xD
    6. Skip xD
    7. Nope and I will never abuse it.
    8. I received a hurtful message before and that message affected my life a lil so I removed that person and never talked to him.
    9. SkIp xD
    10. My brother and my friends only
