Staff changes and other updates: 8 Mar
« on: March 08, 2019, 11:19:43 am »
Hi guys,

Since I've been very busy with work lately, and don't have a lot of free time anymore, we're making some changes. We're shifting some level 5 responsibilities to admins, so they can take care of it, instead of having to wait for the level 5s. The following responsibilities can now be handled by admins (level 4):

  • Changing names: they will now be able to change names (as long as you wait a month between namechanges, changing your tag is always allowed).
  • Handling ban appeals: before, level 5s were the only ones that would take ban appeals of people banned by the AC, or people banned by mods. Admins can now handle these ban appeals as well (for bans by mods, they'll still act as a judge and will have to see proof from the mod that banned the player). They can also whitelist people now, so they can help people caught in rangebans.

We hope this will speed up some administrative tasks, and end up in less waiting time for players.

We are also releasing our admin policy (https://planbserver.com/Admin_policy.pdf). The goals of this document are the following:

  • Letting players know what to expect from admins/mods (what they can do and cannot do): right now I sometimes see a lot of frustration if a mod doesn't do anything, or mods getting accused of things they can't even do.
  • Defining what we consider abuse and providing the proper ways to report for it
  • Letting players know how we handle their personal information
  • Letting players know how we pick mods/admins and what we base ourselves on

We are asking for your feedback, thoughts and further questions, for example on things you think should still be included, so this isn't a final version yet. Once it's final, we'll integrate it in the website as well. We hope this document clears up a lot on how our staff team operates.

Now, while I might not have as much time anymore, the upside of this is that I do not have to depend on VIP purchases to fund the server anymore. So, we decided to make chainsaws and snipers available to everyone (using /saw and /sniper). We hope that a bit more of a level playing field will attract more people to the server. We will be lowering the price of VIP from 20 to 10 EUR. For the people who would still like to help out and donate, we've set up a Patreon: https://patreon.com/planbserver. We chose for this platform as it allows us to be transparent with the donations that are coming in, and it provides a lot of the paying options that were requested before. This is only for donations, this means you will not get anything in return.

As for the ingame updates, here's an overview of what has changed since the last update:

UPDATE 19 March:
Adding to the staff changes mentioned here already, we're also promoting 2 new level 5s: Nikola and Quido. They will support us in managing the server. Their responsibilities are listed in the admin policy, so if you need anything from them, feel free to ask!

Saw and sniper for everyone. Enjoy!

I hope people now follow duty instead of licking clans to get free vip

Yey I can now change my forum Personal Text from "Nerfs VIPs every night in his dreams" to something else :D Years of wishing that either snipers and saws get nerfed or get given to everybody, it finally happened. I love it <3
