Well First of all I would like to say that I love Plaguefest and that I have been playing for years, why I never got on the site is because I never had anything to say. So thanks for all of the great work. What I am here for is because lately its not been very fun to play on the server, partly because of the newbs, and partially because of some admins actions. That is why I am here. Now while I won't point anyone out, I do have some questions. 1. What kind of rules are the admins under, because the standards the players are held upon compared to the admins seems to be different. That being I heard an admin complaining about a bunch of players being a bunch of obscenities. He didn't call anyone these names in specific, but I would expect a kick or a 1 day ban if a player said it. (also can I use that language on this board and yes, I do have a demo of it). I go on and once in a blue moon an admin is whining non stop over the voice chat or just plain old harassing a player. If that's an admin's privilege, so be it. I just want to know. 2. Voice chat compared to text chat rule enforcement. I see a huge discrepancy over what a player or admin can get away with using voice chat compared to writing it out in text for everyone to see. I have seen people get kicked because they joked about someone using F10. eg. "How do I get up to that platform" "press F10 for teleportation" I respect the admins decision and sure enough the rules say they shouldn't say that. The problem is that someone else said the same thing over voice chat not but 10 minutes earlier. So what's with the difference in enforcing the rules about voice chat? 3. Joking around. I miss being able to joke around on the server, but now a days it doesn't seem to be allowed. Say I want to just play around as a zambie. There are plenty of other zambies and I want to explore the level or just go and head hump another zambie for the fun of it. I have been warned twice to not do that. To not screw around and that if I didn't hunt down the humans I would be kicked. On the other hand I have had Haplo floating in the air as the phantom zambie. Now I don't care if Haplo does this, in fact I like to hear the other players reactions. But why is it that an admin can go and play around and I can't. I know you guys have to go off and check to see if a player is doing something illegal, and that's cool. I don't care if you spend the entire time teleporting around, setting each other on fire, and smacking each other for the fun of it. But why can't I do it, I mean play around, I know I don't have admin privileges . Again if that's your privilege as an admin, that's cool. 4. Please have some more specific rules. Seriously I want some specifics in the rules. Like: don't call someone by the f-word (its not the one that begins with "fu"). That's it, I am not an idiot but a few specifics and examples wouldn't hurt on the rules. 5. Who are the current admins? Is there a page that lists the current admins, because I would love to see it. That way I can see who is an admin and who is a poser. Yes I have seen someone with a [pF] tag before who wasn't admin. It was a long time ago, but I would just like to have a page I can go to as a reference. Plus it doesn't hurt to know of the new admins. 6. Whatever map the admins feel like. Now sometimes there are maps that just plain suck and rtv is a great tool. (what happened to nominate?) But certain admins just change the map to what they want. Yes it happens, sometimes I like the change; everyone hated the last map and not enough people were RTVing. Sometimes the server can't handle a map because of the new engine (stupid valve update). But sometimes an admin changes it for no good reason other than they want to play the map. They even say so. eg. "Hey who wants to play Highway" "Not really" <Loading map> <zm_roy_highway> "Don't you guys love this map?" If this is an admins privilege that's fine, if I don't like a map that much I switch to another server and play an escape map I like for a while until it changes to something I like. But if its against the rules that would be cool to know. Thanks guys for reading this and I really like the job you guys do. I know its hard being an admin and some days it can totally ruin the fun time you are having, but I appreciate the hard work you do. Props to Haplo for being one of the best admins around, Even if I don't like the map, he makes it fun to be in the game. I appreciate your time to read this, I know its a bit of a rant but I thought I would post all of my thoughts in one post. Also what happened to the escape server? (what I said I would condense all my questions in to one page).
