Elections!

Post  HeyLookoverthere on Tue May 08, 2012 6:10 pm

Since there have been some issues, and people have pointed out that "I'm drunk and <3 game of thrones" probably isn't a valid method for establishing a government, I have decided we should have some element of democracy. So vote! You can change your vote and candidates who quit can endorse other candidates.

Motherfucker is on a lot. He's a good guy, and he's not old enough to be a cunt yet. Think of him as the representative of the "new generation"

hang on a second, are you trying to convince me he is in fact old enough to be a cunt because "he's the same age as me?"

I agree if it turns into what it was before. It shouldn't be an "admin of admins" or "right hand man" or whatever; there should be no authority over the other admins other than Hlot. The admins and moderators of this server have their rank because of trust -- we're trusted to make a lot of decisions on Hlot's behalf when the situation arises (banning griefers, relocating spawn points, tweaking permissions, etc). We're trusted with that responsibility, and as such should be not only entitled to carry it out where appropriate but also be able to identify it AS a responsibility, a sort of burden if you will. We're not given power to lord it over anyone else, for bragging rights, or to tell the lesser ranks what to do. We have it so we can make the best decisions for the server.

It's the reason Carver and I cut so many Moderators. Many weren't given the rank to take on any kind of responsibility. Either they wanted the power, they wanted the bragging rights, or they wanted the perks of the rank strictly for their own gain. These are the same people who complained the most about chat colors. See the connection?

So if this is going to happen, above all there'd need to be consistency. I'd want whoever got it to know and remind themselves constantly that they aren't boss of the admins, it's not about them having final say, and there's no need to be glorified for it in any way. They're still a part of the admin team, an equal. Hell, in their mind, the title shouldn't even exist.

I agree with JJ, Fyre and Sirrus. Power really doesn't matter in a server unless there are people who needed to get banned. I dislike hearing about "oh, I'm the right hand of the king, so I can do anything I want, and you guys have to follow, haha!" This server is the most peaceful server I've gone into, and considering as an awesome minecraft family.

I want something. I've be countlessly demoted from Clown and I've been on here for a very long time. I believe I could be of some use. Not just banning every person.

That's more like it! You're very good at finding griefing, but I think the problem in the past is that you tend to jump to conclusions. Personally I'd have no problem giving you permissions to do LogBlock lookups to help identify griefers. Maybe give you a trial period, see how things turn out, and work from there? That's of course if no one else objects.

I also agree we shouldn't have an admin of admins(thanks for the vote, though, whoever gave it too me) this place works because the people with power where given that power by sticking around an not being a cunt. seniority over people doesn't mean shit, just that you've been here for a while and managed to not get banned. so can we keep on not being cunts?

Thanks! I sort of tend to and use a minor breaking system. If it's small I'll get someone else' opinion on the matter. But obviously, I hang out with griefers and I know what clients they use, what they tend to do and all of that. Trust me, there's no one better for the job. I know what griefing and what's a mistake at this point.
