Admin Guides/Basic Admin
Welcome to the [RIP] Basic Admin course.
This course will cover the basics on what we expect from any admin on any of our servers.
Who has Admin?
As a basic rule, all full members will have admin on our servers.
The following groups will have some further access to the servers.
- Clan Founders
- Clan Leaders
- Command Staff
As a clan, we are trying to provide a fun, fair environment for all public and clan players. Remember that without pubs the servers are not much fun.
As such, we expect an admin to monitor the server whilst playing to ensure the following:
- Players are abiding by the server rules, which can be found under the game specific public forum at http://www.rustyinplaces.org/forum/ripserverrules.php
- No abuse is given to any player
As an admin the basic rules to follow are:
- Warn a player
- Kick a player
- Ban a player as a last resort
The only time anything other than the above format is to be used is when the player breaks one of the ban rules.
If you are kicking a pub to make room for a [RIP] member then kick in the order of:
- High Team kill's
- High Pings
- Other clans
Admining [RIP] Members
If a [RIP] member breaks the server rules then pull them up in our voice comms.
Kicking [RIP] members:
The only instance where a [RIP] member should be kicked from the server is when they are not in our voice comms whilst playing on one of our servers and they have ignored warnings through chat to get on voice comms.
If they then come on to voice comms and have an issue then tell them to take it up with a Command Staff member, Clan Leader or Clan Founder.
Banning [RIP] members:
Under no circumstances should a [RIP] member ever be banned unless directed to do so by a Clan Leader or Clan Founder.
Guides on how to use our admin tools and any download links if required can be found in the admin section of our forum at http://www.rustyinplaces.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=214
Removal of Access
There is a couple of reasons people will lose admin rights:
- If a member is found to be abusing the position of admin at a minimum they will lose admin rights
- If a member leaves the clan
- If a member goes long term 'On leave'
- If a member gets put MIA
To regain admin, the process to gain admin has to be redone to ensure they are aware of the latest changes.
