  1. Botanist grows some weed, labeling it a healing weed. Some assistant eats the leftovers, overdoses and dies. He then complains on ahelps. What do you do?
  2. Round goes for about 30 minutes until cult is confirmed present. Security officer asks warden to hand out guns. Warden refuses saying he needs HoS’ approval. After he is not found, officer stuns and cuffs warden, then proceeds to open armory. Rules broken? How do you react?
  3. During log search, while doing a report, you notice an admin repeatedly healing and reviving himself. What do you do with this information?
  4. Nightmare ahelps claiming medical doctor has valid hunted it and attacked it during at least 3 separate occasions. How do you respond and handle the complaint?
  5. Hop prays to you “Ian is hungry, help”. What do you do? (for the sake of this question assume you have full administrative priveleges).

@Archanial

  1. Self-homeopathy - IC issue. Maybe let them know how OD works and to be more careful in the future consuming unknown substances they randomly come across outside of medbay. Check botany plants for funky contents just in case.

  2. R3, R2 by extension - give them 15-30min to read up on some SOP (assuming they’re dead or the round is over), a day off sec, some R9 right there.

  3. Check if they’re on centcom. If not - :face_with_raised_eyebrow: :camera_flash: #admin-general discuss.

  4. Smells like a skill issue. Investigate if doc’s combat logs are anywhere near medbay - if not, adminpm them about what he was doing in random maint looking for trouble instead of treating the (presumable) nightmare victims and go from there.

I’ll take an indepth look tonight and leave a few questions :melting_face:

I haven’t made those questions as nuanced as I usually do, but those answers are good.

  1. ok
  2. ok, but ban length should depend on their past history
  3. I would also check if they didn’t do any event or something
  4. This one I disagree. It’s very common to people to hunt and provoke nightmares. I wouldn’t say it’s a skill issue right away.
  5. epic cool answer, making it a gif is nice touch, but it’s also epic embed fail

I’ll come up with some questions, gimme a bit, sory for the delay.

Alright Disqualified, -10 is less than 18 years old sorry bucko, come back in 28 years.

===
But actually…

  1. “THE CAPTAIN MURDERED ME HALP” What do you check for.
  2. A miner is running through the hallways with a holoparasite, attacking Heads, Security, and anyone who comes up to stop them. Who do you bwoink and when.
  3. An assistant is beaten down by security for running a meth shop. While they are arresting him how far can the assistant retaliate?
  4. The round ended, there’s 5 open tickets that are gonna take time to work, and people in deadchat have devolved into a scream match between eachother, what can ya do?
  5. Navy Nelson called the HoS a piece of shit in medbay and shoved them in disposals when they refused to leave. The HoS comes back to arrest Navy a few minutes later. Who’s in the wrong?
  6. What is the correct way to cut a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwhich in half?

No sweat, it’s easter. We’re not running a horse race here (:

  1. Antag status, then what cappy said or was told about them, and go from there.

  2. Assuming this is spawning tickets by the minute, check their objectives and combat logs of the people complaining. Sounds like IC issue, but could be “murderbaiting” or poor RP, it depends on their conduct in the round.

  3. Pretty much anything that doesn’t involve harm intent, such as slipping, shoving or otherwise bamboozling security to escape the arrest without critting any officers.

  1. Missing context, HoS sounds like a beta /s. Shoving is assault, so an arrest is an IC issue.

  2. Only diagonally. If it’s a single piece bread sandwich, fold it diagonally instead.

The HOS’ gun is a high-risk item as it can be a traitor objective. Stealing it as non-antag is self-antag. Although it is a good habit to check for context and player interactions to determine whether it is a griefer or someone that took their RP just a tad too far.
Don’t be too quick to mark tickets as IC issues.

I like the rest of the app so far even if it seems a bit lazy at first glance. Answers to Arch’s and Daridine’s questions have been alright. Another round of questions still because something something badmin.

  1. You are observing the round as mod when you notice another admin spawn themselves in as a deathsquad officer and goes on a rampage. Do you do anything?

  2. A non-antag assistant ahelps at roundstart and asks if he can “mess with security” because his character’s main motivation is hating sec. You check his profile and notice he has 1 hour on the server and bans from others for griefing. How do you respond?

  3. Someone ahelps that the SM was sabotaged by a griefer. You jump to the SM and notice it has started delamming, shooting a lot of electrical arcs with anomalies spawning, however it is not on fire. How do you proceed from there?

  4. A new player ahelps “Yo admin man, Is this MRP or LRP server?”. How do you answer?

  5. What is the role of moderators and do you plan on being promoted to fullmin?

@Haliris (reply button broke)

  1. Check with the admins team in discussion. Could be a maintainer closing a round for a testing thing, or have some other reasoning I’m not aware of at the time.

  2. Politely explain to them that antagonizing security officers for no reason is not RP-friendly and point them to the rules page. Keep an eye on them.

  3. Assuming I’m (still) not an admin, I would probably ask someone with priviledges to clean it up, and see if I can figure out the cause of the incident with any logging tools at the disposal to validate the claim.

  4. I would tell them that this is a Roleplay server, and you are expected to be roleplaying as an employee of a spacestation13, then point them to the rules page and ask if they have any further questions.

  5. Moderators are for resolving basic issues and for getting the ropes for becoming an admin. Yes ideally (as the title implies).

  1. Alright, just remember that headmins are the ones to be notified when you have a complaint about an admin or notice an admin acting up.

  2. Good enough reply to them. Good reasoning overall, a lot of problematic “new” players like to “RP” as griefers.

  3. You should assess what the cause of the delam is before deciding to take actions. In my experience, 90% of delams happen due to incompetence, not griefing. Other than that, checking with other admins for help when you are faced with a game mechanic you do not fully grasp or a situation you do not understand is right.

  4. Good.

  5. Good enough.

Overall solid answers for me and nothing to keep me from supporting this app.

Apologies about the delay in getting to this:

  1. While playing, a methspeeded botany man runs up to you and instahusks you with a plant. Taking the liberty to check, you see they are not an antagonist. Actions?

  2. What are some ways you would push a round to ending?

  3. Are there any ways in which you would promote RP?

  4. An atmos tech irradiates the entire station, would you do anything?

  1. Make an admin admin help :sunglasses: (interest conflict - ask another admin to investigate this issue, although I’m not sure if this rule is pertaining to just appeals, or immediate sentencing as well)

  2. Depends on what the round is and why it needs ending. Most likely pour gasoline on any existing IC beefs. If the round actually needs ending, there’s plenty of random events to choose from, some lamer than others. There’s no right answer for all situations, but you can’t go wrong with blob theme starts playing.

  3. Roleplay promotes roleplay. There’s no one shoe size, but leaning into existing RP is always positive. Manufacturing RP is possible but it takes more effort. I find mostly just remarking on people’s RP is a good way to encourage it.

  4. The entire station. 100% of it? And this is a round that is under two hours long? First thing I’d do is export his setup to later figure out how the mad man did it. Then start the awards ceremony, outcome depends on round state, existing notes/hours and the number of tickets about it.

Playtime : 1425h (1201h/224h)

Fewer notes then I have

accept he already

+1, you observe a ton as is and your answers are workable, I have not had nor heard of any bad experiences with you in the community either

Correct answer :pensive:

Where? If you don’t mind me asking.

While I can relate to both of these, please be careful so that this doesn’t cause any problems.


I see you factoring whether or not a ticket exists or the amount of them into your answers. While yes, that is something to keep in mind, you’re also expected to on some level proactively keep an eye out for issues and investigate them. Don’t dismiss an issue just because nobody is openly complaining about it. A lot of people instead opt to deal with it in silence because they don’t want to come across as being ‘petty’ for reporting something.


Other than that this is mostly fine. Although I do agree with what Hali said about the initial application looking somewhat lazy.

I don’t know what to tell you other than I genuinely don’t know what to expect and whether don’t know if I’ll like it, but curiosity killed the cat.

Mostly unrelated twitch / discord communities, some other game community servers with smaller/similar populations. That sort of thing.

Obviously not meaning it as “ignore TTV on green if no tickets”. More of a “Who does a tree falling in a forest with nobody around hurt the most?” sort of deal.

@Autistic do your job :bangbang:
