OOC Name: Augustus SteamID: Timezone: GMT+01 Expected Activity, Possible Inactivity: By the time this application gets reviewed, it's most likely I have already started school. I am going to be honest and say I am having exams this year and chances are I will be less active during exams, which are at the end of the year. Nevertheless, I am motivated to join and be dedicated to this faction, specially upon launch. I have purposely stopped playing Hl2rp to dedicate myself to this server. Previous Infractions, Forum or Server (WW3RP & HL2RP): I believe my only infraction on Nebulous was a not-so-well orchestrated credit transfer between characters on Hl2rp. This happened years ago when I was very new to roleplaying and I did learned my lesson back then. Are you aware of the differences in the Stasiland iteration for WW3RP compared to earlier ones?: Yes, I am. Speaking of which, I feel more comfortable about Stasiland's iteration rather than the previous WW3RP ones. I did play both Cold war and "Globalist x Coalition" but I found myself enjoying Hl2rp more and therefor never gave actual dedication to neither. How familiar are you with the history and ideology of the German Democratic Republic?: Yes, I am very familiar with GDR history aswell as Cold War. Describe, summarily and to the best of your understanding, the role of the Stasi and their practices in a broad sense: Stasi was a short term for Staatssicherheitsdienst which translates to "State Security Service" in english. The Stasi was not an ordinary law enforcement agency. In matter of fact, it didn't follow the law very often due to the importance and fragility its operations held. At this point we can class the Stasi as an intelligence agency. Their methods varied from using citizens has informants to clandestine house searches without proper warrants. The Stasi was responsible for the surveillance and psychological control of the populance, and the opression of political opponents of the state through a specific technique called Zersetzung (German for "Decomposition".). This technique was informally used and consisted of abusive control and psychological manipulation of the victim.
