Thread Title: Logic - Admin Application Steam Name: Logic Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:122975502 Steam Community: https://steamcommunity.com/id/SG_LOGIC/ Age: 14, received CM permission Time Played: 7w 5d 18h Date of first joining server: 22/10/16 Compulsory Questions: (1-2 Sentences Required) 1. What drove you to apply to be a trial admin? After resigning, and being on the server again, I realised how much I missed being able to be one of the admins, and helping keep the peace of the servers with reports, bans, gags etc. 2. What assets would you bring to the admin team if you were to be accepted? I would bring involvement in the community, friendliness, humour and maturity, not really anything new but more reinforcing the already positive qualities of the current admin team. 3. How many hours on average do you spend on the server and over which time of day? Would this likely change drastically over the medium term? Generally I would spend 1-3 hours on during the week and 3-6 hours on the weekends and holidays, depending on different circumstances. 4. Have you had any past experience as a moderator/administrator? If yes, give specifics as much as you can and also explain what lead to you leaving them. Yes, I was an admin here for about 4 months before I resigned for personal reasons which I don’t particularly want to go to in-depth to. 5. Have you received any punishment from our admin team besides the inevitable slays for RDM? Give as much detail as you can. Aside from the rare slay kicked twice for being AFK as the only serious reasons for something like that. Aside from that however, I’ve been gagged, muted, gimped, kicked, banned, diddled and pgagged three times. All the abuse 6. In your opinion what is the single best quality for an administrator of Arcadia to possess and how would you work towards having this as a trial admin? In my opinion, the most important quality of being an admin is being able to keep a level head, and give a fair decision when dealing reports, or making the decision to kick, ban, mute or gag someone, and not to be bias. 7. List the current Staff Members of Arcadia Gaming. RainbowGauntlet - Owner SleepySirenMitsu - Owner Yanz - Developer Ailuros - Salt Manager Xylo - Community Manager Tanix - Tryhardmin AJ - Admin Cheeky Bastard - Admin Turkey - Admin HepticYoshi - Admin Scorpina - Admin Thungo - Admin Rybie - Admin Obi-Juan Kenobi - Admin Gary the Gargoyle - Admin Situational Acts: (Paragraph Required) 1. A group of about 4 newbies join the server during the current round and you are the only staff member online. One of them has the name “Nucking Figger” and another has the name “Myself”. One of the other 2 begins to read the !motd and deliberately mention every disallowed word/topic such as “Wow, I can’t talk about how great Hitler was or how much the holo-costed?”. The final one starts to deep-throat his microphone and prevent anyone else from being heard over his singing/shouting. In the meantime you ran a server command to show that they are all steam friends with each other. How do you handle this situation? Firstly, I would gag the mic spammer and warn him not to do it again, and ungag him then, or at the end of the round, depending on the severity. I would then warn the player reading out the motd to read it in silence, stop mic spamming and follow the written rules. Finally I would warn “Myself” and “Nucking Figger” to change their names before the end of the current or next round, depending on where the round is at the time, if they don’t kick them a maximum of 3 times before banning them for a short time and putting them on the watchlist so other admins know that they’ve already been warned for their names. If they do change their names, I’d keep an eye on them and make sure that they aren’t metagaming. 2. You and a fellow staff member are currently online when 2 new players join together. During the next round one of the players proceeds to destroy 4-5 traitors single-handed, most of whom report him. Upon reflecting on the round you notice that the other new player was a traitor and once the reports are finished it seems the innocent had very weak to no reason to kill the traitors. Your fellow staff member doesn’t seem to have noticed anything suspicious and is looking to slay/ban them for RDM. How do you proceed? I would firstly friends them to see if they were in fact friends, and then inform the other admin that I suspect that they are metagaming. I would then proceed to gather sufficient evidence as well as running a few more metatests to ensure that there is enough evidence to justify a 4 week ban if it’s their first offence, or a perm ban if it’s their second. I would add them to the banlist and the watchlist saying they were banned for metagaming. 3. A well known respected player is exploiting a map glitch/error to make themselves invulnerable and/or block off an area for the players. How do you deal with this? I would firstly give them a warning and a tp. If they return, I would give them another warning and tp, saying that if they continue there will be more severe consequences. If they go back again, I will slay them on the spot, and warn that the next time will result in a ban depending on the severity of the exploit. If they return and a ban fits, I will apply a ban of 1-4 weeks, and talk to the community managers about a strike to their respected rank if they possess it. 4. You join the forums late one night to find that a few people are causing problems on them for others. One person is spamming the shoutbox with links to NSFW websites and images. A second is posting multiple messages in a recent respected application and harassing the player unmercifully. The third one begins to spam new threads all around the forums with no real reason to do so. Explain what you might do. I would delete the shoutbox messages and start a conversation with the member posting them that those sorts of messages are against the rules, and may result in a shoutbox ban. I would clear the spam on the respected app, and warn them that they are limited to one post, and may not harass the poster. I would then delete the spam threads and warn them not to spam useless crap all over the forums. 5. You are dealing with an RDM report. The ‘victim’ is clearly RDM’d by the ‘reported player’ but in the report the ‘victim’ just puts “Kill yourself you stupid N*****”. Explain how you would proceed with this report. I would warn the victim that harassing people in reports is against the rules, and not to use that sort of language on the server, and if they want their report dealt with to make a new one without harassing the reported player. 6. You are dealing with an RDM report. In the report the ‘victim’ claims that the ‘reported player’ attempted to RDM him. The ‘victim’ therefore shot the ‘reported player’ in self defence but ultimately was shot by the detective for it. The ‘reported player’ claims that he was shooting a wall pretty clearly and that the ‘victim’ deliberately ran in front of it to justify shooting and reporting him. You sigh to yourself sip your coffee and start to check the evidence. Explain how you might resolve this situation. I would view the death scene to see if what the reported player claimed was true. If so,I would advise the victim not to walk in front of another players shots, and since they put them self in that situation that the reported player would not be punished, however, I would message the reported player and say that they probably shouldn’t randomly shoot at walls in future as it may lead to situations like that. If the death scene does not back up the reported players claim, I would add the regular slay to them.
