How do you feel that your time as an administrator has contributed to becoming a super administrator:
To start, I have been a Murder Admin for around 3 weeks now. You could argue that this isn't that much but I have been a staff member on Murder back when it was first released. I think I have more than enough experience to take on the Super Admin role. Throughout my time as an Admin, I have learnt how to utilise every command I have on the server to efficiently deal with rulebreakers and make it as enjoyable as possible for users. I would like to put all of this experience to good use to improve the server as much as possible. I believe the most effective way to do this would be by becoming a member of the leadteam.
What makes you a good candidate for the super administrator team? ( in this part you can go as detailed as you want):
I have tons of experience with staffing on Murder and many other ZARP's servers. I currently hold a few ranks in the community at the moment, these being: Deathrun Head Admin, Teamspeak Staff, Section Moderator on the Forums, and obviously Murder Admin. I have also been a TTT SA twice and a SuperAdmin on Prophunt (aswell as an Admin on BHOP and a Moderator on Murder). It's safe to say I am aware of many situations I will encounter as a SA such as trainings and dealing with staff members that aren't doing their job correctly (and the occasional abusive staff member). Because of the recent events, the server doesn't have any Super Admins at all and they are arguably one of the most important parts of a staff team. Because of this, it is rare that a LT member is available meaning things such as trainings and general LT responsibilities happen at a slower rate. An example of this is an applicant that was accepted a few days ago asked me to train him. I then had to tell him that I cannot at the moment and I directed him to Wolfi's and AEK's steam (who were both offline at the moment because school sucks). Because of this, it tool him 3 days from being accepted to receive his rank in-game. This is just one of the many example as to why the server needs more LT members.
Explain a situation as an administrator you encountered that was an obstacle that required the help of a lead team member but you had to work around it when no lead team member was available:
A distinct time that I remember needing help of a Super Admin is when there was a hacker on the server. I noticed that he was bhopping around the map at insane speeds which is what caused my suspicion. I then went to the only Leadteam member available at the time but he was too busy to come onto the server at the time (*cough* playing other games *cough*). Due to this, the "hacker" ended up leaving before I could get someone on to anticheat him. If I were to have SA, I would have been able to anti-cheat him myself and deal with him accordingly from there.
Explain how you would review and handle an abuse report against another staff member:
I would read through the entire report as thoroughly as posible to gain as much information about the situation as possible. To avoid complications with the rest of the leadteam, I would respond to the report announcing that "I will be handling this". I would then talk to the staff member that the report is against to see what he has to say about what happened. I would then compare it to the report and make a decision. If the report was to be accepted, most of the time it would just involve talking to the staff member in private making them aware of what they did wrong and how they can avoid doing it in the future. However, in more severe cases they staff member in question would need to be brought up in the leedteam meeting where the entire LT will vote on what will happen to the staff member (This will either be no action, official warning or a demotion).
Explain in detail how you would act in the following situation: A staff member bans a user for an excessive amount of time, how do you approach the staff member to ensure that everyone is treated fairly?
I would approach the staff member in a calm and friendly manner and inform him that he banned a user excessively. I would discuss the sitioned further will the staff member to ensure that they are fully aware of the mistake that they have made. I would then proceed to send them the staff ethos and ask the to read through it and ask me anything they are unsure of. I would also send them the recommended ban times to ensure this situation doesn't happen again in the future. I would then take the situation into my own hands and reduce his ban to the appropriate amount.
Explain in detail how you would act in the following situation: A staff member is dealing with a user but is struggling to do so in an appropriate manner. How would you resolve the situation?
I would privately message the staff member and guide them through how to deal with the situation as effectively as possible. I will ensure the staff member remains calm and polite at all times and I will step in publicly if needed. I will finally tell him to message me at any time if he encounters another situation that he struggles to handle and I will help him through it once again. If this happens on a regular basis I will ask the staff member if he would like me to go through all of the ulx commands with him so that he can understand them even more and hopefully be able to deal with many more situations.
Explain in detail how you would act in the following situation: A staff member accuses another staff member of breaking rules, how would you help resolve the situation?
A dispute between staff members is never a good thing. It is extremely important that any disagreements are resolved as soon as possible to allow the staff team to function as effectively as possible. If a staff member accuses another of breaking rules I would firstly talk to them seperately, getting both sides of the story and reviewing any proof that I am provided. If valid evidence if given to me that shows a staff member breaking rules I would speak to them. Depending on the severity of the rulebreak and whether it was done on purpose I would either talk to the staff member myself, making sure he knows what he did was a rulebreak and I will make sure he won't do it again. After I have dealt with the situation, I would make sure there is no "hard feelings" between the two staff members as once again, a dispute between staff is naver a good thing.
Explain in detail how you would act in the following situation: A staff member acts in a disrespectful manner towards another staff member and or sparks an argument within the staff team. How do you resolve the situation?
The staff team are supposed to work with eachother to make the server function well. If any arguments occur it should be the leadteams number one priority to resolve he issue as soon as possible so it doesn't spiral out of control. If I encounter a situation where members of staff argue with eachother, I will first speak to them individually, ask them what has happened. Once I have done that, I will ask the staff members to speak to eachother calmly to help to defuse the issue. If this doesn't work I would have to try a harsher approach where I explain what they are doing can lead to a demotion and they should become friends (or at least be nice to eachother).
Explain in detail how you would act in the following situation: You spot a staff member breaking rules to the point of harming other users, how do you approach the staff member?
This is unacceptable. I would first tell him to stop breaking rules and I would make a HA aware of the situation. If he continues to break rules past this point I would bring it up in the leadteam meeting where official action will be taken against the staff member. If the staff member was using his powers to break the rules and it is really severe, I will need to contact a HA who can emergancy demote them and a vote will take place in the leadteam meeting where the staff member will either recieve his powers again or be demoted, however this will happen very rarely.
This isn't part of the app I just feel the need to add it. My activity is a little shaky due to my inactivity post (found here if you want to look at it). It will probably take me a few more weeks of actively playing before they even consider me as a leadteam member, I just want to know what people think :3
Thank you for reading my app, all types of feedback is appreciated and I love you all! <3
