Tiered Admin System?

    Keep the current admin system, but add a half admin for ~10 bucks a month that would have only freeze, kick, and mute powers. And maybe even add a quarter admin for ~7 bucks a month that would have only freeze or something along those lines. The standard admin abuse rules would apply of course.
    What do you guys think?

    would be alot to manage i think, and that is why its not done.

    Or just pay 5 dollars more and get everything.

    We have a tiered admin system. If you do a good job you get more powers.

    it's called pay 15 dollars. If you're good, you'll get promoted.

    It's basically like a job... that you pay the boss

    And we do this so admins have something they can actually earn. Since there's the old argument of how anyone can be an admin if they pay therefore management of the servers must be shitty or those who run PF don't care about the quality of their admins or how their servers are administered, throwing in powers that can be earned and not bought seems to work out pretty well in motivating admins to do well and have something to look forward to. If they really do enjoy PF and being an admin here, they can do a good job and be promoted all the way to free admin, and many have been. I know your idea doesn't involve changing this aspect of our system and implementing it would only involve adding 2 more admin groups to the config, adding 2 new subscription types to paypal, and then modifying the purchase script, but really I don't think this would be necessary. I think we might end up with situations where a "half-admin" got on and then we had say hackers and players were yelling at that admin to ban them but that admin can't do shit because he's only half-admin (just an example) - so our admin group config would really need functionality over anything else such as the more fun stuff, ie: beacon etc. It would also mean we would have to have a separate training process just for these admins to accommodate their stripped down powers, which isn't a problem really - just adds complications. It could very well work but I personally don't see the necessity of it. Our price for admin is already $15 for admin on ALL servers we provide (ZM1, ZM2, ZE, GG, MG, HNS, and soon DR) and it used to be $15 for admin on ONE server.

    The tiered Admin system that is currently inplace seems to be a good motivater. Admins want to learn to be better, and all the admins are not abusing which is hard to find anywhere.
