    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
    [​IMG]

    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.

    Declaration:


    As an Administrator of Arcadia, you are responsible for protecting the server and keeping the peace. You are also assigned as the Community Representative, which means you are to:


    • Not abuse the rank given to you
    • Not to go on other Servers/Communities and disrupt their activities. (Spamming, Abusing, etc.)
    • Not to Use your Rank as Bragging rights to Other Players
    • Not to let personal feelings obstruct your duty
    If any of these rules are broken, you will be stripped of your rank and will not be able to re-apply unless you wait 1 month and re-apply (Unlikely to be re-accepted). The Administration team will not tolerate users who give this community a bad reputation.


    I
    Logic, Acknowledge the requirements and prerequisites that are needed to become Trial Admin in the community. I recognize this as a prestigious rank held by the most trusted in the community and by joining the order, I promise not to turn on the community by abusing my powers. I devote my prowess in Administration to the Community Managers and strive to provide a fun to play server with minimal discrimination.

    I'm sorry I'm not going to lie I had to read this a couple of times to figure out if it was serious or not.
    While your name is currently plastered as 'Owner' on another community. While that is a new server granted, as far as I am aware you are not allowed to Admin and Own a competing server at the same time.

    Now had you stepped down from the other community and come over being like yes I want to be a part again then sure. However the fact that you are still currently ranked Owner while applying worry's me that you do not intent to step down unless you get Admin here.....
    If you intend to step down in the future it then worry's me the intentions you took the position there in the first place....

    Now logic I really like you and I know you are a good admin, however I kinda feel unsure about your reasoning behind these are and would like some explanation to be honest....

    I've already talked to the others over there and did bring it up with the CMs here and was still given permission to apply so as far as I am aware this is no longer a problem (probably should've put that in the original post)

    Logic. Don't get me wrong - I like you very much personally.

    However, I cannot in good conscience support your application for admin.

    First of all, your tenure as admin was very short - only a couple of months. I find it strange that you have decided to try and apply after so short a time - especially when other admins may choose to go on a break instead. I'm happy to be proven wrong if you had only gone on a break when you decided to step down. However, the fact that you had such a short time on as an admin tells me that you aren't exactly that enthusiastic about the job.

    You are mature and responsible - in most cases. However, as Harribo said, you are the owner of another competing server - a server that happens to be made up mostly of Arcadia exiles. I think that you do enjoy and share a bond with this server, but you are currently undermining it right now by owning what was meant to be a sort of successor server to Arcadia, and has most of its community made up of Arcadia players.

    It also seems to be a very irresponsible action to have taken ownership of another server at *extremely* short notice, and this also makes you appear power hungry.

    Should you decide to step down as owner as Sabertooth Gaming, I will be happy to revert this to a +1. Until then, it is a -1 from me. Find where your loyalties are and recognise that it isn't that simple to try and have both owner of another server as well as administrating this one.

    +1/Newt to logico. I don't see any rule against being staff members of other servers. Time to update the !motd? edit: hes not owner anymore but i doubt that matters, right??

    Everyone was already (now wrongfully) convinced by MItsongler and Raindongle that arcadia was as good as dead, thus no one can be blamed for starting up these new servers. Also Thungo's still an admin here so I'll ring the double standards police if Logician is denied for that reason

    It's pleasing to hear that you have stepped down from your role as owner. However, I still would be interested to know why you had been so quick to take up the role in the first place, if you were considering reapplying when applications opened here?

    I think that Logic should be able to reapply for this role since he has been loyal to this server, reguardless of what he has done with other communities recently.

    Although, in saying this I'm interested in what Daniel has said about you abusing commands, since I wasn't there to see this happen I won't let it effect my decision. But it still should be said that that behaviour shouldn't be displayed reguardless of whether the server is closing or not..

    Overall, Logic is still as capable as admin as he was 3 months ago, +1/Neutral

    If an admin or other finds this irrelevant then feel free to delete however at least tell me why.

    I find it hard to go against anyone for abusing commands on the server when it was officially thought of as dead, not because it should have been happening, but because most of the admins were doing it to an extent, I won't name names because a) that's unfair as I didn't see every admin when it was said to be shutting down, b) those with access to server logs can see for themselves, c) in correlation to A, I don't think I saw Logic before shutdown, now maybe he was being extra abusive but I doubt it.

    As to you're application because I'm already here, I haven't read it, merely like going through comments on these and most people copy paste anyway so. +1, you are one of the most mature people I know of.

    Gonna have to agree with Straight, to deny logic's app because of abuse of power when the server was believed to be shutting down and not demoting other current admins that did the same seems completely unfair. Again perhaps logic was being particularly bad and maybe something to look into, but with the assumption that isn't the case...
    It's a +1 from me, good to have you back in Arcadia's warm embrace

    Neut/+1 still.
    But because people think I meant you should be denied because you abused your commands, that is not the case.
    I just meant when it came to maturity I think yours is questionable that's all. Still, think you'll do a good job if accepted.
    JUST MY CONCERNS.
