Admin Guidelines

Post by Nameless on Tue Jul 12, 2016 2:54 pm

With admin on our servers being shared to a wider range of people, the council has decided that certain guidelines must be laid down that all admins must agree to and abide by. If these rules are not followed, your admin will be revoked. I have managed to condense these guidelines into 9 key principles.

ADMIN GUIDELINES

1) Being an admin is a burden, it is your duty to maintain peace on our servers and ensure a fun gaming experience. You are a public servant and if it is used for your own benefit, then your smod powers will be revoked.

2) You must ALWAYS use your in-game name when presenting yourself as an admin. You may never alias when logged into smod.

3) Players misbehaving must be given direct warnings TWICE using /smod say, before being punished. Those who are known troublemakers (e.g. batman) must be given at least 1 direct warning before being punished.

4) Admins must maintain activity in-game, on steam and on forums. This means logging in every couple of days. If your inactivity is not reported, your admin account will be revoked. Any inactivity must be reported in this thread http://www.denovo.tk/t20-inactivity-thread - those who are not in clan can inform myself, Chiang or Frank over Steam.

5) Admin powers must only be used when a player is disrupting gameplay resulting in a lower quality experience for others on our servers. Clearly, this includes behaviour such as tking, time-wasting and trolling. In some cases however is difficult to ascertain who began the trolling/tking; in these cases you must clearly state using /smod say something along the lines of "tking/trolling is not tolerated on these servers, the next person to do so will be kicked/muted/tempbanned etc." This means even if one of the players involved is one of your friends, you must be completely objective and unbias. NEVER assume someone is trolling or tking simply because someone tells you to, you must investigate for yourself.

6) Bans must always be a last resort, the hierarchy that should be followed is:
(WARNING x2) -----> forcespec -------> kick -----------> tempban. In some cases, steps can be skipped e.g. insta kick after warning them twice.

7) If there is a conflict of interest between two admins, the wishes of the admin holding the higher rank within the clan must followed (outsiders therefore must always submit to the will of clan members). This means communicating with each other to deal with potential trolls in order to keep the peace.

8)Those who have access to a higher smod account will be able to change the map the server is on. In the case of our Iris RTV|RTM server this should not be necessary as there is already an objective voting system in place. For our Praetorium server however, a poll must first be conducted using /smod poll of which more than half of the server population must vote in favour of the map change in order for it to go through. When leaving the server, the map on Praetorium must ALWAYS be changed back to dotf. If there is another admin on and you are leaving, you may pass on the duty to him/her to change the map back to dotf.

9) NEVER EVER EVER reveal your smod password to anyone else EVER!  Suspect

If you have any questions on how to use the smod system, Chiang, myself or Frank will always be willing to help you out, but a good tip is to type /smod in console and it will display all the commands available for your level. bounce

Also if you are one of those who have chosen to be admin, you must post here that you have read and agreed to these rules! :>

added two more principles

6) Bans must always be a last resort, the hierarchy that should be followed is:
(WARNING x2) -----> forcespec -------> kick -----------> tempban. In some cases, steps can be skipped e.g. insta kick after warning them twice.

9) NEVER EVER EVER reveal your smod password to anyone else EVER!  Suspect

I don't believe there will ever be a need to permaban someone, for really bad cases /tempban 999 rounds will always suffice. Smile

I have a question. Should verbal trolling of any degree be punished? Or do we only react to direct disruptions of gameplay?

I'd mostly say no as trolling is part of mb2 (stuff like ez, rekt etc. is not srs). In the case of flaming wars however, they often do spam up the general chat which is annoying. What I would do is mute both players involved in the verbal trolling for equal amounts of time because tbh if both parties are guilty of not being able to use the /ignore function and continuing the flame war, whether they instigated it or are retaliating, they deserve to be muted (after being warned ofc).

So ignore it in general, but warn x2 and then mute if it drags on for too long. Got it.
