Default Class of 2018 - new server admins
Reply With Quote


New server admins have been appointed. They are:

Dognuts
Mailbox
Enyo
McLovin

These players have stepped forward to help steer the )o( ship and keep our beloved game going, to the detriment
of their own games. A server admin puts the servers playing atmosphere/rules first and these gentlemen have all
assured Analog and I that they will continue that ethos.

Please give them the respect they deserve. If you don't, you'll be on the short end of the stick because, as management,
we'll back them until their noses begin to bleed. The #1 thing we demand is that respect; treat an admin like shit and you'll
be taking a temporary (or worse) break from the Omni world.

That being said, they are homo-sapiens just like you and have good and bad days. Sometimes they will make mistakes and
as long as your challenge is done in a respectful manner you're free to voice your concerns. In the forums. Admins are players
first, and they love the game as much as you do; they are here to play, not to police. So when you break a rule, or try their
patience, you'll be kicked/banned. Take up your case here in the forums.

That's it.

Ello everyone. Glad to be one of the new admins!

I had a bit of a rough night tonight. Got on right after a server crash, and force voted stock Torlan over RedPlanet in a tie vote (I wasn't thinking and got excited over the surprise premiere of stock torlan). Admitted my mistake, forced Redplanet afterwards to be fair, although the player count went down to 6 players at that point.

My deep apologies, everyone. Hopefully the other new admins won't be as clumsy as me .

I think accidentally forcing a map is a rite of passage for new admins.

QFT

Every admin can definitely say "been there, done that".

Thanks Scrote! It's an honor and I'll try not to screw the pooch like Mailbox already did (j/k, it's only a matter of time before I jack something up).

I actually had to force a map for the first time after a crash tonight... I must have picked the right one, everyone said "thanks" and not "power-trippin' fucking admin!"

Good to see you playing regular again Scrote.

Hello everyone,

I dun goofed (again) and forced voted Torlan-32p (Torlan again) over Redplanet (AGAIN!). This time though, it was because I forgot to sign out of admin when placing my vote (voting for a map while you're an admin forcevotes it). Rookie mistake. The playercount died down, but then bounced back when we played KAKMO later tonight. Cleaned it up later, did some admining to make sure people were still playing, which people thankfully appreciated.

LOL, I was playing when that happened, but I didn't even realize you forced Torlan, I just thought it got voted. I didn't notice any ranting about it, so I think no harm done.

Oh yeah, and definitely set a key to do what Sage is suggesting, it'll log you out and pop up the vote menu. I try to keep myself logged out until I need to do some admin action, then log back out again. Using some hot keys for logging in/out is definitely way faster and easier.

Well, that didnt take long... my turn to put a dollar in the screwed pooch jar. I accidentally forced TAL-PPC last night during voting. I logged in while playing to kick an idle player on the previous map and forgot to log out before voting. Ive got a key set to log out and pop up the vote menu as Sage suggested, but just forgot after something like 45 minutes of playing.

I did quickly apologized and admonished myself for my noobiness. Seemed to go over ok, nobody got real upset about it. Besides, TAL had I think the 2nd most votes within a vote or two of the top pick with 20 seconds left to vote.

Cue the Carpe eye-roll

Another buck in the jar for attempting to kick Vugulskr (who was afk) from the escape menu, but the game ended up kicking BlooJeans instead??? Learned the hard way that that function is not to be trusted...

Yeah, I think Flounder mentioned somewhere before that right clicking on a player name to kick would kick the wrong player.

Yep, always use the web admin console for that stuff.

And accidentally forcing the wrong map is known in these parts as "pulling a Flounder (tm)".

Congrats new admins!
