this was originally posted by me in Maro's thread http://spiderserver.no-ip.org/forum/vie ... =15&t=3772
however i am placing a copy here as was suggested.
I really don't care who gets staff positions as long as there are active
God and higher staff members. When players see that staff really cares about the server then they feel more comfortable donating to it and telling their friends how fun it is. After a while there is nothing to do but PK, daily raids and events small ones even, like those Carlos made
, make the server much more enjoyable. Perhaps add some long quests that require teamwork, something like POI or INQ from real. I love this server but i am saddened when i see the malignancy and disrespect that is rampant in every aspect of it.
You could ask for players to give applications to be on a design team for SpiderOT, suggest quests and write lore. Design maps and spells, other ideas such as new mounts and scripts and donation items. Among the masses that play Spider there are certainly people that would be interested in helping, and would be beneficial to you and the server. I don't want to see SpiderOT flounder and die, but i fear that with all these staff disputes and arguments ingame/forms that this is the path we are on.
Separate Help into 3 channels: Spanish speakers, English, and Arabic. Restrict help chat like advertising
, regular players can only type 1 line every 30 seconds, therefore it can be kept to those that need help, and with a large amount. of tutors there will be someone to answer the questions definitively
[12?] A healthy base of tutors exists, but perhaps it can be expanded to more trusted players. Create a Senior Tutor
rank that will oversee this category and report problems to you, therefore forums wont be spammed with demote threads, this Staff member will provide you with information about problems and can demote other Tutors.
[6?] More than 2 are required. A variety is required, based on ethnicity: Spanish, English, Arabic. Perhaps 2 from each ethnicity so that at least 1 can be online at a time to help. As with the previous category make a single GM the overseer of the rest, to keep discipline.
[3?] One from each major ethnicity, respected players or trusted friends from rl. These staff members would be able to make raids and advertise and monitor forums as MOD, each for their respective language.
[4?] As always i will recommend that there are 4 Admin rank staff: Scripter, Mapper, Ingame - CM listens to reports from Senior Tutor/other manager staff, and a CM that deals with complaints and problems via Email.
Mina you could be the executive and those would be others on the board of directors which you
All i want is for this server to be great again, I always hear about how much fun it used to be and i regret not being there at that stage, but i am present now and i am doing my best.
