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? As a game admin, I see myself as a mediator and enforcer of the server rules. My main goal is to ensure that all players have a fair and enjoyable experience. I’ll be there to address any issues, handle player reports, and take appropriate actions against rule violations. Moreover, I believe it’s important to foster a positive and inclusive community, so I’ll strive to create a welcoming environment and promote good sportsmanship.

How do you feel about the current roleplay status on the server? Roleplay is an integral part of SS14, and I fully support it. It enhances the immersion, sparks creativity, and adds depth to the gameplay. As an administrator, I’ll actively encourage and promote roleplay by engaging with players, organizing events, and facilitating RP-focused interactions. Of course, I’ll also address any instances where roleplay standards are not being met and provide guidance to help players improve their roleplaying skills.

Why do you want to become an administrator for SS14? I have a genuine passion for the game and its community, and that’s why I’m excited about the opportunity to become an administrator for SS14. I genuinely enjoy helping others, resolving conflicts, and ensuring that everyone has a positive experience. With my prior administration experience and in-depth knowledge of the game, I believe I can effectively contribute to the success of the server. I’m eager to assist both new and experienced players, creating a thriving and supportive environment for everyone.

Other than banning problematic players, what admin actions do you believe have the biggest positive impact? While banning problematic players is necessary at times, there are other admin actions that can make a significant positive impact. These include:

Mediating disputes: As an admin, I would step in to mediate conflicts between players, promoting open communication and finding resolutions that satisfy all parties involved. This helps maintain a harmonious and respectful community.

Educating players: I see it as part of my role to provide guidance and explanations to players who may be unfamiliar with certain game mechanics or rules. By helping players understand the game better, we can foster a more inclusive and knowledgeable player base.

Organizing events: I believe hosting events is a fantastic way to bring the community together. By planning and running events that encourage collaboration, roleplay, or specific objectives, we can create memorable experiences and showcase the unique features of the server.

Providing support: As an admin, I’ll be available to assist players who encounter technical issues, bugs, or have general inquiries. By being approachable and responsive, I can ensure that players feel supported

Scenario 1: As an administrator, my main goal is to ensure that everyone has a great and fair gaming experience. In this scenario, the chaplain approaches me at the start of the round and asks for a task. I would respond to the chaplain, acknowledging their request and appreciating their enthusiasm. However, since the game mode is traitors and the traitors haven’t been selected yet, I would explain to the chaplain that traitor tasks are not currently available. I would encourage them to engage in other activities, like assisting different departments or participating in roleplay interactions. This way, the chaplain can still have a meaningful impact on the round while maintaining a balanced gameplay environment.

Scenario 2: In this scenario, we have a clown who is using crayons to write negative things about security on the floor. A security officer intervenes, intending to arrest the clown for vandalism. However, before the officer can bring the clown to the brig, a passenger slips the officer and manages to stun another security officer as the clown escapes through disposals.

As an administrator, I would closely monitor the situation, ensuring the safety and fairness of the game. First, I would freeze the actions of the passenger and the clown using admin tools, preventing any further disruptions. Then, I would teleport both players to a secure location away from others, to avoid any potential harm or conflicts.

Next, I would have a private conversation with both players involved. I would approach the clown and explain that their actions, including the derogatory writings, go against the server’s rules and can negatively impact the experience for others. I would give them a warning, emphasizing the importance of respectful behavior.

In the case of the passenger, I would also have a conversation, explaining that interfering with the duties of security officers is not allowed. I would provide a warning, highlighting the significance of respecting role boundaries and fostering a cooperative atmosphere.

After resolving the immediate situation, I would keep an eye on both players to ensure they comply with the rules and do not engage in similar disruptive behavior in the future. Maintaining a fair and inclusive community is crucial for everyone’s enjoyment.

Scenario 3: When handling an ahelp about “self-antag” activity from a player who is no longer online, it’s essential to gather all available information. I would carefully review the report, considering the provided details and any relevant logs or evidence.

Given that the reported infractions are minor and typically warrant a warning, I would make a note of the incident for future reference. If the player comes online later, I would approach them privately to discuss the reported behavior and provide a warning if necessary. I would explain the specific rule violations, emphasizing the importance of following the rules and maintaining a positive gaming environment.

If the player continues to exhibit problematic behavior in subsequent rounds, I would escalate the disciplinary actions accordingly, taking into account any previous warnings or reports. Consistency and fairness in enforcing the rules are crucial to fostering a healthy and welcoming community.
