Admins are never around. (They are a square)
« on: December 21, 2006, 06:19:29 am »
I think I have seen every person go out with a bang to date. And its always like 3 to 5 hours after I see it that its taken down. I think +1 admin in aus would fixor this.


EnEsCe, I choose you!

Hope not... How else am I gonna be kept up-to-date about the lastest webstandards and browser issues  :-\

I also agree that there should be some more admins, considering there are over 3000 members in these forums and if any of them lose their minds (which I doubt too many will) nothing stops them posting useless rubbish which will stay up on the Official Soldat Forums for a few hours...

I checked the forums some hours ago, when some random started posting stuff around the place. And later came back hoping to see an admin put an end to this reoccuring dilemna, but I guess I'll have to wait till the morning.

I vote you shut up.

We have 1 EU and 2 American admins. They should be around the clock - but you know, they have a life, so they can't check the forums every minute. They can't camp for your reports, or do stuff like that - so stop whining about it. These are humans, not scripts.

And no, your vote doesn't count - at all.

Excellent contradiction. You take that stance that we have enough them support the fact that the forum isn't being watched well enough.

6 hours now...
There have been soldat hacks widely available on the soldat forum for 6 hours.


Your right.... what was I thinking. The admins have everything under control. So the next server I join will have little soldat guys flying though walls. And that is how soldat was ment to be played that way. Or at least thats what the soldat forums told me :)

It's so easy to complain, isn't it?  Just whine whine whine, bitch bitch bitch.

But even if you got the job, you wouldn't here her 24/7.  Not a chance.  I've already deleted three of those topics, but I don't have control over the whole forums, so please...just shut up.  It's not like mods/admins are just sitting around with their thumbs up their butts doing nothing.  Outcast has already shut down one of those topics as well.

In fairness, there is ways to contact admins, and to help out you can report posts to any moderators that work that board, which also go to us admins. But, sometimes, we're simply not around.

Hmm, maybe we could make a few of our current moderators global moderators. Might help out a bit. Otherwise, if you ever need to reach me, try highlighting or pming me on IRC. I check there more often as people usually go that way to get my attention.

It only started out as a suggestion.

Yes, I went to IRC when I noticed to find that everyone there was already talking about it.

If memory servers I reported every person who decided to go out with a bang. Which includes vill, the one shortly after that and this one.

Every single one of them. ~30 mins after they where posted.

If we had one more admin he/she might of stopped it in time to stop the spread of hacks.

Reading a little too much between the lines there guv. You can talk about it all you want, but I was perhaps highlightng how you have a magical, mystical, alluring way of making our recent ban-requesting member's actions seem all too ...dramatic.

Also, it baffles the hell out of most of us as to why you continue to be here despite boasting many criticisms towards the forums and a 'scheduled' date to leave our digital presence. If you like, I could maybe ask Bricks or E.Hunter to help code in a clock you could put in your signiture, counting down the very seconds before your decided departure. We're here to help after all. Michal Marcinkowski himself has offered to release the 100 doves - though heart broken - and we've managed to edit the forums so that we can stop everyone posting for exactly 1 minute of silence, but we need to know exactly what time you're going.

This is exactly why I consider you such an asshole.

He is right though, an admin from three different time zones, and one that checks the forums every day, 2-3 times a day. Aussie, Europe, and America.

Is it so hard to choose ONE...or would that be to much trouble?
You seem to edit peoples posts and ban them from IRC without any trouble...so surely one more admin wouldn't hurt.

It would seem that you have not been reading between the lines enough. I have cryptically stated where I am going after I leave here several times. In fact I have conspired with several members here to fallow in my footsteps. I have cleared the time in my schedule to set up everything needed to keep my social needs in check. Once my place is secure in my future I will erase my past. I could just stop being (digitally) social untill things are secure at point "B" but I have 2 topics left to make before I go. Looks like the first of the 2 should be ready tomorrow.

The members with the smaller post counts that hang out in the areas that matter should not come across links that could passably lead them down the dark path. Especially if they do not know English that well. Part of being the head of a gaming community with has popularity amongst those young ones is making sure they play have the same opportunities as others. Either give this "other" software to everyone or no one.

lol, pathetic for asking for one more admin?

Seriously...Read the post before abusing me....

Ok ok, enough with the insults and pathetic attempts at gay jokes. My opinion is we need another admin. I have nothing against the other admins having a life....but theres to admins that are basicly in the same timezones...Now...who knows, we might not have any more of these "SOLDATHAX, GET IN BEFORE LOCK" threads, but whats to stop some other nutcase doing it?....Seriously!!
If you wanna abuse me for saying that I think we need more admins, then your the pathetic one.

This forums has gone to the dogs....along with the humour that it once had.

Once again. My point is right on the money. But Demonic, Geologist and Outcast  are gonna be ass holes anyway. With just a hint of stfu form Ru.

You're arguing for a new admin to stop what is, effectively, a drop in the bucket.  You think those links being posted for a matter of hours makes any difference when compared to the numerous sites out there that have hacks up for download 24/7?  Hardly.  Not even close, in fact, when you look at how people began putting up warnings against downloading the haxxors in question to prevent people from doing it.  Also, there were plenty of people cursing out Netan for posting those links.  Not to mention you're conveniently forgetting about other times people have posted hacks on these forums and the admins or mods have removed the links and banned the posters very quickly.

On a lighter note, please don't think that you aren't an asshole yourself.  After all, a nice guy wouldn't start insulting someone who came to the forums to wish us all happy holidays, would they?  Of course not.  So just because someone gets on your case when you start tossing out useless sarcasm, now we're the bad guys?  Pfft.

So let's stop the pity party already.  If you're so pissed off you feel you need to leave, that's fine.  No one's going to stop you.  It just doesn't look like there will be a new admin popping up because of one little incident.  Although I sure would like to see those 100 doves...

Ouch, being called an idiot by †...

Anyway, if you'd checked, FliesLikeABrick and Ru are two of the most active people on the forums. This is pretty much an isolated incident... Ru was asleep at the time, fair enough, he can't be awake at all hours of the day, and I'm sure Brick's been busy the past few weeks.

Kinda depend on the admin really. The admins and moderators we have now are here only for the healthy amount of trust we've had for one another and knowledge in respective fields, all established over a long time knowing one another.

I kinda handle community issues, a few long term plans, basic admin tasks now and then. Bricks handles more important stuff, notably the technical and hosting side. E.Hunter developed the custom layout of this forum and is as handy a wizard in php as Bricks and good friend of his, and Amblin was the admin who came after Styx long ago, who later recruited me, who then I later recruited Bricks.

As for a new admin, it'd probably have to be one of our current moderators, if anyone at all, and if actually needed. Someone with the time and can be here when we're not.  And as Geo said, a guy making a few spammy posts advertising wax is just a chunk of cork in the wine, i've had a busy day, and we most usually settle such situations within or around an hour tops.

Just ask Avarax...I remember about a month ago he made a post in the testing area saying "testing admins speed" or something along those lines. His post contained a picture of a topless lady. Within 5 minutes of it being posted, I had replaced it with the same image, but with the smile distorted and the chest flattened, leaving a breastless and disturbing creature saying "consider this a warning.". ;)


...still, you're right. Another admin wouldn't hurt, but again, that'd depend on 'who'.

E-Rebellion fails.

bja888 and Bone Collector, you're never going to get perfect admins for a place like this. Bricks and Chakra aren't compulsory Admins, they could easily just **** off down the pub for the rest of their lives and leave you to swivel in your turd-filled nappies. They don't though, they come on here practically every day with nothing but metophorical dusters and gritted teeth personalities wearing those cute little soldat patterned aprons to try and keep things running smoothly. I can understand why every so often they might get slightly pee'd off everytime someone complains about how unfair the karma system is or how long some hacks took to get cleared up.

Also, reconsider leaving the forum. It's already boring enough with members like Zazi, Vigg and Evil-Ville getting banned with others on the waiting list, and others like yourself just packing their bags and leaving.

If Chakra wants to be a ******* about it then let him, you'd be really sad to care about some admin hurting your e-feelings. Your always going to get crap on the forums, as you are always going to get it in life. Best thing to do is just put up with it cause you can't change it. Not on a forum anyways.

Que sera sera. ;)

EDIT: Yeah sorry, just bja for the leaving part BC, if you're staying then it's that's good. 8)

Chakra (sorry....Ru`) Couldn't make me leave unless he banned me. Nothing that anyones said has ever made me wanna leave, so if that was directed at me, then you got me all wrong.

It's gonna be sad when you leave though Bja...your the only sane one here and in IRC....

You're leaving 'cause you're moving?! This is the Internet, man. Unless you're talking about your schedule getting a swamp in events to do because of that, you can access this place any time. Even then the forum doesn't demand all of the community to be active 24/7.

Anyways, I think the current staff is doing a great job. From my perspective this board would only need another admin if a current one lost his job and can't find any more time to check up on this place due to frantic work-searching, if one for any reason retired from the forums, or something drastic like that. Their activity here fits just right as it is.

What I don't like is how everyone is defending the admins by saying that 'they have a life', well then we do need new admins since they have a life. I know that usually when I report something it gets dealt with within minutes, but if there was another admin active when the other admins aren't, wouldn't that mean less chance of something similar happening?

Unfortunately, maturity goes hand in hand with age and age goes hand in hand with more duties away from the computer.  People who are admin material simply don't have time to babysit the forums.  Even if they did, they don't need to.  A few links to hacks and some pictures of porn -- while potentially offensive, unacceptable, or disgusting -- aren't things that will leave permanent scars on young minds.  While it would be best if they could be taken down within several minutes (which they usually are), having them around for a while isn't such a terrible thing.

but leaving links to hacks around increases the chance of a potential hacker finding them, and if they were removed earlier there might have been less people downloading the hacks :/

Most people on the forums are smart enough to know not to download hacks.  The rest could just as easily search google for them.
