    also here is a wiki http://plaguefest.com/wiki/admin-faq-s/
    How do I obtain server admin?(top)

    Server admin can be obtained via a subscription. For details see http://plaguefest.com/help/upgrades

    How do I add my Steam ID to my forum account?(top)

    See How do I add my Steam ID to my forum account tutorial.

    What are the levels of admin and their abilities?(top)

    See Admin Levels

    How do I get promoted to the next admin level?(top)

    See the Promotional Guidelines

    When is a good time to perform map changes?(top)

    If there are other admins on the server, consult with them immediately before changing maps. If you are the only admin on the server, map changes should only occur when there are less than 5 minute remaining before the end of the map. It is not proper to simply change maps if you do not like the choice. It is best to have the players RTV the map if you want it changed immediately. Keep in mind that Sr. Admins have the ability to override map changes or votes if it is deemed improper.

    When should Beacons be used?(top)

    When a Beacon is requested by a human player, it is at the discretion of the administrator to fulfill that request. If that player is turned into a zombie, it is that administrator's responsibility to to disable their beacon. We do not want Beacons on zombies since the point of enabling a Beacon on a player is to alert zombies to humans. Alerting a zombie to another zombie's location is counter to the progress of the game.

    When there are multiple admins on, who should handle the rule breakers?(top)

    The admin who issues the first verbal or text warning to that individual is responsible for the escalation procedures. Do not interfere with that admin when they are performing their duty. Multiple admin participation leads to confusion and conflicts with the enforcement procedures.

    Are we allowed to kick spectators if the server is full?(top)

    No. We have an AFK Manager which will move AFK's to spectate and then kick them when appropriate. Admins do not need to worry about this. We want active participation in the game but we also want to maintain a full server at the same time. In order to achieve both goals, we developed the AFK manager. Admins and Donators are exempt from being removed while in AFK spectate.

        To get admin you need to pay, it's 15 USD per month via PayPal.

        well it seems like he is.
        If you follow the process, itll tell you to link your steam ID to your forum account (which i see you already did), then you may start the upgrade and one of the ways to pay for admin will be to login to your paypal and make the paypal..paypal will automatically make it a subscription for you since that's what the purchase is set as.

        You buy admin by setting up a paypal subscription through the Get Admin link at the top of the page. It automatically adds the steam profile linked to your forum account to the system as admin. Then, you get a trainer to train you in the ways of administration and you're good to go.

        Yes you have too pay. I misunderstood you. I thought you were asking if you had to pay twice, But you pay for admin via paypal then you post a thread under admin subs and then include your steam id and paypal id and we will check and link the admin ability's to you after you complete training.
