What can you bring to the staff team?
I'm a level-headed person, and have some experience with forum administration. I've been fairly active in the community (even if I've kept quiet for the most part). I have a mind for analyzing, but can act swiftly and decisively if need be.

What can you bring to the staff team?
I have extensive aircraft modding experience and I feel that I can bring even more to the community in the future. I have ideas for tweaking the Addon Request in to an Addon Proposal that I think will create a more friendly environment for modders. Along with more tutorials and addons I know I can contribute to the YSFlight Community in other ways. With my new computer I see myself flying online more and I'm excited for the work that will be done getting people online more often.
Check out my website YSDecaff for all my tutorials and addon releases.

What can you bring to the staff team?
A wealth of experience in phpBB3 bullitin board administration spanning the last 10 years. I'm a novice php dev now and I would be working closely with HQ to strengthen the ties of YSFlight with YSFHQ, promoting further online play. I've been working with Eric loosely over the past 5 years trying to further improve both YSF and YSFHQ and I look forwards to stepping this practice up even further.

Granted I have joined and left the staff roster a few times - some negative, some neutral. I feel I am ready to contribute big time to the site - just little things like tidying up and background work and of course, coding development on top of my already high activity rates. I also live in "the east" and I'm on at hours most of the established mod team are offline, perhaps something to consider guys? ;)

I'm a very firm believer in ethics and confidentiality - I have administrated in the past on a very transparent basis, which I'm sure some current and former staff can attest to. I used to tend to get angry at noobs but I've since wisened up a little and am more relaxed in my life now. I'm ready to return to the staff roster and I hope both normal members and staff members (former and current) of YSFHQ can get behind my application. :)
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

What can you bring to the staff team?
Bringing players together online in YS is crucial to helping the community stay together. As one of the most experienced in hosting large gathering events, I plan to continue offering advice and role models allowing people to see what is necessary to get people online and fill our servers. In addition, I plan to continue working with the YSFHQ Marketing Team in branding YS Flight and YSFHQ through any means to make sure our unique hobby is shown to the world. I still see a bright and long future for the YS community and fostering that vision is the most important thing to me right now.

What can you bring to the staff team?
As many of you know, I feel very passionate about ysflight, and it's online community. Ever since joining YS I've been involved with VA's and the civilian events. I've successfully ran my own VA for 4 and a half years, during this time, we have held many events which have had good outcomes. Perhaps one of the most popular was the 6 hour long ATC session which myself and 3 others organised back in 2014. The event seen great turnouts and broke the record at the time for longest atc session on YS. I'd love to have the opportunity to serve in staff for another year and perhaps host more events like the 6 hours atc session. Thanks for considering me!

What can you bring to the staff team?
I have been a part of the YSFHQ Staff administration team since 2012 and have played a large role in the growth of YSFHQ since then. My position in the staff administration has ranged from Section Moderator, Administrator, and Head Administrator. Many of the current staff team and former staff members can attest to me being very active in the staff forums, helping resolve a variety of issues that ranged from small disputes to user impersonation on a separate forum. With your vote, I strive to make YSFHQ a welcoming community for all members.
