Re: one Site Admin free slot available

Thanks every1 for the nice words, sadly i cannot help now anymore. I don't want to get involved in any maintenance right now, but i will help with admin advices to anyone which asks. Would be nice to have a team of admins.

FOR TL;DR just skip.

The main skills i think one must have are: reading (to read the generals rules), helping (able to help even the ones that are punished), unbaised (unbaised is a skill that develops in time but for start a decent level of fair play is enough)
As for a team of admins if one will be created, i would advice to have recurrence discussions (like per week or so) and talk regarding anything with other admins. That would be a huge step forward to anyone involved. 
 
Being admin helps you in real life also, You become a people person, able to easily talk with anyone (if you want ofc and if you couldn't already). And you also gain managerial skills because an admin also needs to manage other moderators teams. 
 
The main things an admin has to do are:
- maintaining content (like any forum moderator does, you can let them do this)
- giving warnings/bans (a forum moderator cannot ban community ppl but can announce an admin for such punishment)
- giving bans to spam bots ( a forum/spambot moderator can do this, you can let them do this)
- managing moderators teams (only an admin can do this, a forum moderator cannot to give permissions)
  When a moderator team has too few active ppl, its the admin's role to help in the recruitment and with explanations and advices. However i do not recommend implications in the decisions of a team. Like ranking moderators/ clandb moderators/ forum moderators. Explain them what they need to know and then just let them be responsible. 
- help with user related issues.
   Are a very few problems: 
    Ppl sometimes cannot login, just tell them to clear cookies. 
    Server admins might want to know if an ip belongs to which user, or what ips have a user. We allow this knowledge with the acceptance of the person who asks that the ips should remain private and not be disclosed in public. 
    Give information for when a ban ends to who asks.
- what you cannot do is: changing the way forum works, look & feel. For that talk to easy.
 
You could split these between the admins in the team.
This is why being a forum moderators before usually helps.

If my opinion matters,

I would like to point out and with respond to claims about Camel with illegitimacy to be the new site admin, that he is one of the oldest around here and knows much and more than most of the others about most of the aspects with regards to the whole mod.. I surely can't disagree with the claims about him not being always with stable conditions, but who is?.. !! and the solution for that is very simple, just to never deal with matters while not! and as long as he becomes the site admin he will learn and know that by his own! with regards to him not being fair and just.. a lot could be spoken about that, to be short, no one can be absolutely just and fair, but of course people vary, however, in order for a judge to be just it takes an absolute cooperation from the sides of the issue.. so to take DIE Clan's matter as an example, from all I did see and read, I guess he was not fair!! yes it is true, but the fact Majonsie wasn't cooperative and didn't explain well how she deserved that TAG, helped a lot making him fail to be fair with it, I hate to speak about other people's personal matters also hate to bring berried matters back alive, but to help understand my point, the fact Majonsie wasn't in stable condition her self to explain or care for to explain how she deserved that Tag was caused by an influence of the problems between her and xed.. as she held a grudge toward him and toward anyone who was his friend.. any site admin should have the skills to understand people of course and know the proper way to deal with the different matters of the different kinds.. cause one can't just go ask a woman to give away something she has for someone who broke up with her! someone understand well what it means for women wouldn't even get near to that.. the fact XED was Camel's friend also helped making Camel fail to be just with it.

I hope the example I brought could help for better understandings and help people involved with that specific matter learn what mistakes they had, to speak generally, Camel surely can learn from his mistakes as everyone commits ones while not well or not sober, the problem is with those which deny it or refuse to correct them after they realize them and/or get well or sober.


Have fun at E+ and never take it with hard feelings no matter how much you lose nor how much stupid or dump or punk or bad or blithering idiot the player you are playing with really is, it's just a game and we are here to have fun and enjoy our times!!

But that "kind of job" can help few of us... Like respect, responsibilities and fair. It can even make grow up, getting more mature... Ofc that's a hard job and won't be easy to do, that's a proof from Epsi who shown that he's the man. When I met him he wasn't like he's today (he wasn't mod or admin yet) all those responsibilities gave him new points of view and new reactions on different topic. He became an even better person.

Thanks Epsi mate for all the hard work. You've done a great job. Especially by setting the healthy ground for future work (with warning system for example).

If you go for Admin Team, suggestions: Camel (knowledge, experience), Thor (patience, tact), Bozo (knowledge, dedication) & Kersy (management skills). Note that noone is perfect (starting from me) and i never saw a totally ballanced and impersonal management. And especially in gaming communities there is a lot of challenge in this regard. Would be great if the community support the new Team.

Either way, good luck. You're going to need it. Happy

All the best.

1 year after last post on this thread... I think you knew what I meant Winking

Anyway, nobody made me an Admin once again after all these months and funny thing is, after my resignation, I'm still an regular and rank moderator here, guess easy or anyone else in charge isnt around nowadays to change that Tongue
but even then when I had some time to come by I did some stuff as a mod, accepted few teams/clans changes, took out some nasty posts from shoutbox Smug
