[Deathrun] Staff Attitude 1 year 5 months ago #290886



What's expected of you

You're expected to be an enthusiastic, helpful, interactive and friendly character while being a staff member here at ZARP Deathrun. As well as keeping the server clean from rulebreakers, you're also here to keep the environment friendly and enjoyable for the players - this can mean always helping, not ignoring people, being respectful, but also being chilled out and keeping control of situations. Being stern to an extent is okay, but being too serious is not, try and be mature and chilled out at the same time.

Do not let situations get out of hand, letting people have fun as long as no one is being harmed and everyone's experience is good is fine, but when people start to stop enjoying their experience and rules are being more frequently broken, it's time to stick a foot in and stop it. You should also keep calm and collected at all times, don't get angry, and deal with situations maturely. If a rulebreaker is disrespecting you, do not disrespect back, try to calm them down and if they continue then you can take further action. Never let your anger towards a rule breaker make your judgement on what punishment to give out, if you feel angered then relax and chilled and someone else will help you. Within certain situations, different punishments are given out depending on the severity of the player's action, always communicate with the staff team if you're unsure on a given punishment.

Staff members by no means are expected to act superior to others, yes, you have more power in the server but do not be immature about it and use powers to represent your superiority. We're all players at the end of the day, so do not boss players around just because you can, you should only use authority when they are breaking the rules. This means that you should treat all players respectfully, no telling them to "Shut up", instead say something along the lines of "It's time to calm down now" or something of more of a neutral nature, because respecting a player is the only way they're really going to listen to you; even if they stop that one time just because you used force, but if you respect them in the way you deal with situations, they may well change their attitude because they treat you as a person who is trying to keep everyone happy instead of an automated machine purposed to stop rulebreakers by any means.

You should be confident and well prepared all the time, so if you have a question about something then you need to ask a Lead Team member to ensure you don't make a mistake. You're also expected to have a good idea on how to handle situations correctly, so if you come across a situation that you're unsure how to handle, get feedback from other staff members on how to handle it correctly next time if you have to handle the situation quickly. If you find yourself in a situation where you don't know how to approach it in the correct manner, then message someone within the staff team as they will always be here to help you.

Working together with fellow staff members is the most effective way of handling encounters on the server, as well as keeping a positive and enjoyable vibe on the server. You should be offering help to staff members if they seem like they have too much on their hands, as well as offering advice to them on certain situations that could prove difficult. As for keeping the server happy, you could always interact with the players and create mini events to enjoy.

I hope this clears up some issues and questions that you may have, and I hope to see all staff members acting this way, if you have any questions about anything on here, add Biwx Or Pitt.

Good job Stratiic. I fully agree with everything you wrote here.
Ever since my first days as a moderator I realized that being a good and respectful player and keeping the server's enviroment fun and stable decreases rulebreaking a ton.
Hope that this thread helps some people understand what they are suposed to do in order to keep the DR servers a friendly and welcoming place.

Thank you Stratiic for making this!
This is a 100% true right there ^_^
I think this is the best way to say about the attitude.
I recognized that if you are happy and just Play for fun (while doing your Duty) there are less rulebreaks.
