The clown slips the HoS and steals his gun, spacing it right after. What do you do?: I would check if clown is an antag and/or if HoS and clown had some bad interactions before. If any of this is true then i would probably let it go, but if it’s not i’d check the notes if he did it before. If he didn’t i would slap them on the wrist and probably note them, but if he has history of doing it i would job ban them for some time or short normal ban.

A non-antagonist is sabotaging the Atmospherics loop and pumping plasma into the distro, along with dragging around a canister and releasing it into the atmosphere. Assuming that an admin is cleaning up the after-effects, how do you conduct the ahelp with him?: First off i probably lock him in admin prison if he isn’t already. I check if they are a new player and ask them why did they do it, If they have a legitimate reason to do it i just tell them that it is usually bad idea to do it even if they have a good reason and note them. If they are avoiding answers, disconnected etc. or are new player they are most likely griefer and ban them permanently (with higher up approval).

Alrighty time to look into this.

Could you elaborate a bit more in that regard? What makes you confident that you are as skilled as an administrator? What was your previous experience limited/not limited to?

This worries me a little bit here. You will be dealing with a lot of stress and you won’t be able to take a break in the middle of adminning. Adminning can be very stressful, are you sure you can handle it? Asking it as a genuine question.

Now that you brought it up. Do you believe we as a staff team listen enough to the community? If yes/no, why?

The issue here is that the HOS gun is a traitor item. Stealing it is thus always considered self antag if done without proper reason. Now even if they had bad interactions before. Actually spacing the gun is too much.

Could you give me an example of what a “legimate reason” could look like? I’d like to understand your thought process here.


You’ve received a really low severity note yesterday. Otherwise your record is good! I’m carefully confident about this application, depending on what you answer to my questions above. :wink:

Well… i have a lot of experience as an admin looking at all servers i moderated and as a coder i have a lot of experience with tools i’ll be using

nah, i’ll be fine, usually if i need to take a break it’s like one day break. it’s actually hard to stress me enough to take a longer break

Now that you brought it up. Do you believe we as a staff team listen enough to the community? If yes/no, why?

yep, i feel you guys are listening to what community wants

Yeah… on a second thought spacing it is way too much. so you’re right.

Actually I had this happen to me personally (i plasmaflooded). We had xenos and we were losing enough to know station was lost, captain told be to plasmaflood to stop the xenos etc (why didn’t he call ERT or nuke it? i don’t know, i was just following orders). it was a controlled plasmaflood (AKA most vents were welded and only areas full of xenos were being flooded). I guess it was mostly to cut losses so we can evac. Admin of course confronted me but i explained the situation and was let go

Hello! Ive got a few situations and an ahelp for you to handle!

  1. A fresh round has just started and you notice a player has disconnected roughly 1 minute into the round, what do you do if anything?

  2. A traitor pulled out an esword and killed his target in the halls, immediately after a doctor grabs the body and an assistant, a cook, and a scientist all work together to kill the traitor, there is no security available, what do you do, if anything?

  3. Treat this as an ahelp and respond accordingly. “Wow, i just love it when others get to do whatever they want and when i ahelp it I get marked IC, but when I do it I get a fucking note!”

First off i check their history if there is something about antag rolling or leaving like that, wait some time in case their internet just stopped working. if there is such history i would ban for antag rolling but if not then just a note about them leaving 1 minute into round

  1. A traitor pulled out an esword and killed his target in the halls, immediately after a doctor grabs the body and an assistant, a cook, and a scientist all work together to kill the traitor, there is no security available, what do you do, if anything?

Assistant, cook and scientist valid hunted, it doesn’t change anything if there is no sec. Valid hunting is valid hunting. If they just protected the doctor and/or body then maybe i would let it go but actively hunting antag is too much so i would ban them. Also did target or someone asked for help? did assistant, cook and scientist talked with themself? Asking in case meta gang

  1. Treat this as an ahelp and respond accordingly. “Wow, i just love it when others get to do whatever they want and when i ahelp it I get marked IC, but when I do it I get a fucking note!”

Hey, no need to be so salty, you don’t know the full situation, maybe they had valid reason to do thing they did, but if you still think admin actions were inappropriate then make admin report on forums and it will be handled! By ahelping like that you won’t change a thing.

  1. Good response, this happens fairly frequently where people join and their internet goes out or computer does a fucky, patience is key!

  2. A good answer, having no sec you can loosen a little bit on the crew’s actions but here the three listed took it to far by actively killing the traitor.

  3. “Well i just think it’s funny how admins bwoink me for the smallest thing but everyone else can do whatever they want…”

I was more referring to the actual stuff you did but no worries it is fine.

A controlled plasmaflood is more or less not possible. The station would really already have to be completely and utterly destroyed for something like that to work/be allowed. Good point overall though. Making sure you get all the facts right before handing out punishments is essential.

  1. “Well i just think it’s funny how admins bwoink me for the smallest thing but everyone else can do whatever they want…”

They can’t, we probably confronted them about it, just because they’re not gone doesn’t mean they weren’t punished. Also remember buddy that ahelps like that take up our time so we can’t find people that do whatever they want :wink:

Yeah, there are only very specific cases where plasmaflood is fine but they still exist. So chances of them getting banned are still high

Yeah… its kinda hard for me to know what am i supposed to say, i was adminning, banning bad guys, solving issues between players, making games more fun for others etc

Well i likenthe answers ive seen, a few things could use some work in my opinion but nothing that having just a little time as an admin won’t fix. You seem to have the right attitude for it

Do avoid using emojis though when dealing with people, if someones upset an emoji usually makes it worse

All in all, a +1 from me
T: +1

Looking good so far, just one question from me here.

You get an adminhelp about a potential griefer, they say that the player caused issues a few rounds ago however there wasnt any admins online to help at the time.
The player in question doesnt currently seem to be breaking any rules this round.

What would you do or advise the player to do, and why.
