EEASAS's Admin Application vol. 2


Recommended Posts

In-game Username: EEASAS
Discord username: tritium0
Characters you play: Corbin Raub

On average, how many hours do you expect to admin per week: Depends. Probably 16-30 hours a week.

Days you are available to admin on: Also depends. But usually everyday.

How old are you? 19, 20 in December

Do you have any SS14 experience outside of Wizard's Den servers, or any SS13 experience? I've played SS13 plenty, I'd say i'm quite addicted to it! Also, i've tried out both Frontier and Delta-V.

Do you have prior administration experience (SS13/SS14 experience preferred, please also post a way for us to verify this)? Nope, but i know the admin tools pretty well.

Have you ever been banned from any SS14 or SS13 servers? No.

Admins have the ability to perform various tasks which are not available to the average player. An incomplete list of these tasks is: in-game rule enforcement, in-game events, ban appeals, and out-of-game rule enforcement through things like replay/log reviews in response to player reports. With these, and any other tasks you're aware of in mind, answer the following two questions.

What are you primarily interested in doing as an admin? Generally rule enforcement of course, and making the game a little more fun for everyone. And ban appeals/reports of course.

What are you least interested in doing as an admin? Doing something wrong that could impact the gameplay for everyone else.

Answer the following questions in detail, so we can get a better idea of how you'd approach adminning.

What role do you think game admins serve on our servers?
Rule enforcement, events, occasionally ban appeals and sometimes adding changes to the game.

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14?
I know the game's ins and outs pretty well. I have played the game for a long time now, adding changes and stuff that i just would like to check out what it's like to administrate here.

How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the servers?
Good, but typically there are some people who roleplay badly on the MRP server. It doesn't impact me that much, but it's generally a minor incovenience for others.

Other than banning problematic players, what admin actions do you believe have the biggest positive impact?
Badly run events, such as
Bombing a place for no reason
Spawning CBURN or ERT for no reason
And admin things, such as
Round-removing people
Treating a person badly in AHelp or ghost chat

Have you ever had a negative experience in the game or with a game admin? If so what, if anything, would you do to prevent other players from experiencing this?

Have you ever had a good experience with the game or a game admin? If so, what was it?
Generally, every experience with the game is good. It is a sandbox game after all. I don't have any particularly good experiences 
but one will probably happen sooner or later!

The following are scenarios, respond with how you would handle each as an administrator. Respond with the assumption that you are an administrator with full access to the admin tools, and that you have all the knowledge needed to use these tools. Respond in detail, explain the reasons behind decisions you make and describe any assumptions you are making. When you need to make an assumption, it is preferred for you to describe how differences in the assumption would affect your actions.

It is the start of the round. There are 60 players on the server. The game mode is traitors, traitors have not been selected yet. There are three players who decided to observe the round instead of join it orbiting you. Two of them are encouraging you to "do something funny".
I would not do anything and just continue adminning, because i've seen that doing events at roundstart is bad, usually for players and admins.
If i did continue with their "funny something" like traitoring people or spawning nukies, they would probably be angry in Deadchat or AHelp.

You see a clown using crayon to write on the floor in front of security. The clown writings are negative things about security, like "shitsec". A secoff tells the clown that they're being arrested for vandalism, stuns them, and cuffs them. Before the secoff is able to get the clown into the brig, a passenger slips the secoff, causing them to lose their baton, then uses the baton to stun another secoff that comes to help as the clown runs away. The passenger escapes through disposals. Having heard an AOS radio callout, the detective enters maintenance near disposals and shoots the passenger to crit. There are four players in this scenario, the clown, the passenger, the secoff, and the detective.
If the Detective did not bring the Passenger to Medbay afterwards, i would probably have given them a temporary ban for skipping escalation.
The passenger did not harm the Detective neither the Security Officer(less lethal is less lethal after all) and thus, my verdict would be over-escalation.

If the Detective DID bring the Passenger to Medbay, i would have likely let them off with a warning or note.

You and another admin have been adminning for around an hour. The rate of issues has been easily manageable due to having 2 admins. Neither of you have been talking in admin chat. You are using ahelp to warn a player for breaking a rule when the other admin joins the ahelp and confirms that it is against the rules, but that it's fine in this case and they can ignore the rule for the rest of the round. You haven't taken any other admin actions yet, such as applying a ban or writing a note.

I would most likely talk it out with the other Admin, and try to get a reasoning why it was not a problem

If he still insisted it was fine, i would call a Head Admin or just continue on with my AHelp.

Are these things you believe have a positive impact or did you misread the question?
