[Guide] Requesting staff, And other Information. 4 months 5 days ago #633636

Hello! I decided to make this guide cause i see a lot of users not using this command or requesting help into another issue.


To request help using chat all you do is basicly press @ (And type your message). This will send it directly to the admin chat. You won't see that admin chat, but they can respond to you in private messages or in normal chat.

You're an innocent, And you see the detective. You say Hi detective, And he shoots you. And obviustly that is RDM, What you do is report them using the !report command. And write your issue and a staff member will handle the report, take up a chat and mostly talk about it what happened and will ask questions. The admin will warn or not depends the issue and depends if it's true or not.


What you can do is basicly; If there is a Super Admin+ On the server, You can contact them. If there isn't any, You can take it to the forums or if it's someone on our teamspeak server (ts.zarpgaming.com). What you do on ts is basicly use this format:
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]

Fill it in, And submit it.




If you get warned and feel like the warning/ban was invalid, You can go ahead and appeal your warning/ban here on the forums. You use this format for it (Ban appeal format)

If you got warned you use this format:

The main things expected of you whilst being a staff member here at ZARP TTT are that you are a helpful and friendly character, while being approachable and eager to help both users and fellow staff members and interact with them. While a main role of yours is to keep the server clean of rulebreaks, you are also expected to maintain a friendly and enjoyable environment for all players. This means that you should be attentive to the needs of the users and always be willing to help, maintain a respectful attitude, and stay calm and keep control in situations. Where needed, being stern is perfectly fine, however if it gets to a point where you are being much too serious, there is an issue. Do your best to maintain a mature but calm attitude.

Situations should never be allowed to get out of hand. You are perfectly fine to allow people to have fun, as long as no one's experience is affected negatively. When someone's experienced is harmed and rules are being broken, there is a point where you are required to intervene. Maintain a calm and collected attitude when approaching a situation, even when it gets tough or when you are being disrespected. Do your best to understand when disrespect is out of anger and when disrespect comes from blatant trolling/bad attitude. When it comes out of anger, it's best to attempt to calm the user down before issuing punishment, as issuing a punishment (unless the case is severe) usually makes the situation worse. If disrespect comes out of clear trolling or a bad attitude, then it's best to issue a punishment. While punishing someone, never let your negative emotions get in the way of your duties. Keep in mind the attitude of the user and their level of remorse in the response, and adjust punishments accordingly. The severity of punishment required is adjustable based on the severity of the action. If you have doubts about issuing a punishment, it is best to consult with your fellow staff members first.

While staff members do possess higher in-game ranks than users, they are in no way meant to act superior to users. This shows high levels of immaturity and represents the staff team in a bad light. While your rank may be higher, we are all humans at the end of the day, therefore we are all equal. Authority should only be used when rules are being broken or arguments are continuous. Make sure to remain respectful at all times towards the players. I cannot stress this enough: Even if you do disrespect another player as banter, and they are not offended by it, any sort of disrespectful behaviour is not tolerated in public chat, as it reflects upon the staff team very badly, and in rare cases, can lead to users gaining the false belief that disrespect is tolerated. While dealing with situations, if you maintain a respectful approach towards the user, they are much more likely to return the favour and cause the situation to come to a quicker end. Even when a user is disrespectful, if you manage to maintain a good and respectful attitude, it may change their way of thinking.

You should be fully confident in your actions before making them; this means that if you have ANY doubts at all, you should consult another staff member or a Lead Team member, to ensure that no one's experience is needlessly affected. From your training and the various resources on the forums, you should be able to maintain a good grasp on the correct way of handling each situation. However, if this is not the case, feel free to consult another staff member or the lead team on how to handle the situation properly next time. This will minimise the possibility of getting reprimanded for your handling of the situation. We're all here to help each other, not just the users, at the end of the day.

In handling situations, the most effective way of coming to a strong conclusion is working together with the rest of the present staff team. This allows the right decision to be made at all times, keeping a positive attitude on the server as a whole at all times. Always offer help to staff members when they've got a lot to deal with, and offer advice where necessary. If a staff member does something wrong, don't instantly jump to reporting them. Speak to them first, and make them aware of what they did wrong. If they accept their wrongdoings, you can leave it at that. However, if not, feel free to take the necessary action. Try to keep arguments to a minimum within the staff team, as it allows us to work together much better if we have a friendly attitude towards each other. Don't be afraid to start small events to keep the users happy and playing, as long as they don't have a negative impact.

In any situation, if you have any issue at all and feel that you need help in regards to how you should be carrying out your duties or you have an issue with another staff member, remember that the Lead Team are there to help you. Should there be any issue, a Lead Team member will always listen to you and try to help out as best they can, and you should always try to go to one of them if you have an issue with a fellow staff member rather than starting an argument within the staff team. Remember, as staff you are a team, not a bunch of rivals.

For Administrators, you can find a helpful guide on the ban command and how to use it here created by Johnler

Best of luck with staffing.

How to handle a report on TTT

Hello everyone!

As of late, I've been getting more and more complaints from both users as well as staff members (that were formerly users) that our staff team has not been properly handling reports. As this is a relatively big issue that I have noticed myself as well, I've decided to make this quick guide to help everyone with handling reports properly.

What is a report exactly?
To handle a report properly, you need to understand what a report actually is. It might seem like an obvious question, however a lot of staff members do have problems, and sometimes you do see staff members warning users for making supposed "false reports," perhaps presumptuously.

A report is exactly what it sounds like: a user reporting another user. This may be for everything: micspam, RDM, false KOS, hacking and even disrespect. Just because it's majorly used for RDM does not mean that users can only report others for that sole reason.

A report can be deemed false when a user is randomly reporting someone else for literally or when the user does not explain the reason for the report. Here is a good example:

In this report the user makes no attempt at actually trying to explain themselves or why they reported the other user in the first place. If the user makes reports like these multiple times and has been told by a staff member to not do it again you may warn them for it. If a user reports someone for a valid reason other than RDM, you may not warn them for it.

Note that spamming reports might also be considered false reporting, but the game does not allow you to report many users in one round and thus such a situation should rarely, or perhaps even never occur.

A user is lying in the report. What now?
If a user is blatantly lying, you can ignore their side altogether. If they're the victim you can just set the report as finished - if you do this, do make it clear to the users in question that you're dropping the report because the victim is lying - and if they're the reported user you may just warn them for whatever bad thing they did. You can also warn them for lying in the report, but as that raises quite a few questions I'd recommend you to just keep it for what it is and not warn them for it. Although, like I said, you are allowed to do so.

However, a user is not always blatantly lying. In fact, it might seem like a user is lying when they're actually not. They might just be misinformed, or have not realized something important. In these cases, opening a chat is highly recommended. Let the users talk it out and find out the truth that way. It usually ends with the two users forgiving one another and you can simply leave it at that without needing to give out any punishments.

In the few cases where the victim does not forgive the reported user, you as a staff member need to stand up and explain what you believe the truth to be. If the reported user broke a rule that he didn't realize existed, explain the rule to them and tell them to read up on the rules on the forums. In these cases you may give a punishment to the reported user, however I personally recommend you not to.

We as staff are here to help the users. If we punish new users for every minor rule broken then we're not helping them - we're only disturbing their play time. Which, by the way, is also considered a breach of the Staff Ethos.

So when should I open a chat and when should I not?
That's mostly up to you, but it always depends on what kind of a report it is. Personally I have a handy rule of thumb: if it is a report where one of the two users seems to be unwilling to talk - for example when the reported user responds with "asfafdsajfafja" - I don't open a chat. For all other cases I do open a chat, even if it might seem unneeded.

Please do understand that this is only how I handle my reports. You as a staff member might never open a chat and just tell them the mistake they made with the punishment - for example: "!warn [username] RDM - Don't throw random grenades!" - however I personally do not do this as I do not believe the user will understand that they made a mistake.

Even if it is entirely obvious that someone broke a rule, the user in question might not know it themselves. Therefore opening a chat to explain to them that they broke a rule or anything else to explain the event that happened would be for the best.

Is there anything else I should know?
You should know many, many things. For example, the way you've been taught to warn users - that I personally still use myself, might I add - is actually not the best way to do so. However you'll learn how to handle reports properly with experience and time. When I first began I barely ever opened a chat. Now I practically always do.

The most important thing you should know is this, simple sentence: quality over quantity

I'm unsure whether it is because we're the nr. 1 TTT server in the world or because we have started to track our staff member's weekly report count a few months ago, but as of late certain staff have decided to take the quantity over quality route.

Let me tell you this: no matter how great of a staff member you are, if you don't handle reports properly you might as well not do them at all. Like I said earlier, we're here to help the users - not to punish them endlessly. The chances of you getting demoted because you don't handle reports with the same care as others is extremely small - practically nonexistent, actually - however that does not mean that you should handle reports as fast as possible.

That's the reason why I made this guide: to help staff members understand that although they might not get demoted - in fact, with a high report count you obviously have a better chance of getting promoted - that does not mean that they're doing the right thing. Of course, perhaps my interpretation of "the right thing" does not match yours at all, however different opinions is not a bad thing in the slightest.

Last but not least I will show you an example of how I, personally, handle a regular report. This goes for most situations.

How I handle a report

Firstly I take a quick look at the report that I have decided to take. Note that the reported player's response clearly indicates that this was RDM, as he killed on suspicion. Other than that, there's very little noteworthy in the logs - it is quite simply put, blatant RDM.


I decided to open a chat. I first ask them for their sides of the story, and in case they forgot what the report was about I (and I do this always) copy the final log that shows the victim's death.


The user admits to having RDMed. Note that there is a slight discrepancy in the two users' stories, as the victim states he was only trying to climb a ladder and the reported user states that the victim was "charging" at him. However, as the reported user admits to it it does not really matter for the outcome.

As the reported user was only a new player, having just joined the server a few rounds before, I decided to not punish them for it. They were clearly sorry and accepted that they made a simple mistake.


Here I give a supposed "verbal warning" to the user in question. If I see them break another rule I'll punish them for it.

After this I type a quick "Thank you for your time. Have fun playing!" that I sadly enough do not have a picture of, close the chat and I finish the report. It takes but a minute, but it makes the user feel listened to and wanted in the community.

Please understand that this guide is not quite done yet. I'll try to see if I can make more pictures of other situations to show how I would handle those situations, however for now I'll keep it at this.

Thank you for reading! Hope you learned something from this!

Congratulations! You are now a staff member of ZARP TTT Server!. Firstly let's get to know the ULX menu system, the "Staff Member Menu" we use for the server. Anyone can access this menu, however only staff can see the commands that are available to them.

The aim of moderation on the server is to improve the experience for people, not to interrupt people’s roleplay when it’s not necessary. Staff are there to have fun and to help others have fun too not to ban and warn everyone who breaks minor rules that have little effect on the server. Wherever possible use powers such as mute, freeze and jail instead of banning and kicking.
- taken from the Staff Ethos.


To make opening the ULX menu easy, bind it to a prefered button using this command:

bind "m" "xgui"

As a staff member you now have access to serveral commands, the commands which are available for your current rank will show up in your ULX menu under different categories.





Staff Rules


  • Do not abuse your powers in any way.

  • Do not punish other staff member's if you have an issue contact a TTT Lead Team Staff Member.

  • Nobody other than yourself should be on your account on our server. (Family, Friends etc..)

  • You may not have a rank on another server when you have one in ZARP. (Not Including the Friendly Players servers)

  • Do not use your powers on other staff members without their permission.

  • Always make sure you have sufficient proof that somebody has broken a rule before punishing them, witnesses don't count as evidence for rule breaking!

  • Always make sure that the person fully understands what rule they have broken and why they can't do it! This will prevent false complaints etc.

  • No matter how disrespectful a player is, please handle him calmly and politely, there is no need for you to disrespect him back.

  • Be Respectful To All Players & Staff!

  • When banning/kicking someone, check and check again that you have the right person/SteamID!

  • If requested to help players, do so kindly and without being lazy, think about the community and it's players.

  • And last, Enjoy helping others, You were chosen to join the staff members for a reason.
