The [SiK] Administrative Guidelines
Congratulations! You have been brought into the "inner circle" of [SiK]....alright kind of cheesy I know. Either way though we would like to welcome you, our new admin, to admin-ship! All of the hubbub aside we as a group of friends and family have taken it upon ourselves to help to create one of the more popular "servers" on the internet (Well that we care about.) This does bring upon us as administrators some shared responsibilities, and "directives" that we would like all of our Administrators to follow. These "directives" are listed below.
1. General Administrator Responsibilities
A) You will help to keep chode monkeys, and morons off of the server.
B) You will help to foster TEAM PLAY and OBJECTIVE GAMING at ALL TIMES.
C) You will treat people with dignity and respect.
D) You will be respectful of other administrator’s decisions, and support in them fully (in public), you can debate their decisions on the CLAN ONLY forums.
E) You will enforce the established rules and guidelines as outlined below.
F) Banned players often come to the forums, and are encouraged to do such, so that they have a place to plead their case to be unbanned. IF you are going to ban people, YOU will be EXPECTED to REGULARLY visit and contribute to the forums on issues related to BANNINGS you have done and other server/admin related items of discussion. Failure to do such MAY result in a REDUCTION or TOTAL REMOVAL of your administrative access both on the server and the website.
G) You will be EXPECTED to be active on our servers. Not to the point of total dedication, but at least make an appearance every now and then!
H) Other clans recruiting in our server is not welcome. On the first offence WARN, the second offence KICK, the third offence BAN. This applies to EVERYONE.
I) sm_cash is not a luxury for you to give yourself, or others, money over and over again. It is ONLY to be used in situations where it would help to further balanced game play (IE: when an opposing team is down by 8 rounds or more) and nothing more.
J) You will have fun, and you will like it…or ELSE!
2. The Dick Clause
Even though you are an administrator, please remember that you are not "god". While you may or may not hold the power of the BAN HAMMER, or the KICK POLE it does not mean you have the right to go on a banning/kicking spree. Sure, you can remove someone for a few reasons (as will be outlined in a moment) but you do have to follow a few guidelines.
3. User Administration - When to KICK and when to BAN
A) When someone is breaking one of our rules/guidelines you must first issue a WARNING both in TEXT and over the MICROPHONE as some people do not use one or the other.
B) If the accused continues to disregard your kind suggestion you as the administrator have the right to make a decision. Do I remove this individual? Or do I warn them again? Whichever you choose to do if they disregard you a second time, please do not be afraid to remove them from the server. Remember we are here to have fun, not be police all the time.
C) We consider the following to be ban/kick worthy offenses and the responding admin shall follow the directions outlined in sections 1.A and 1.B.
1. Racism of any kind.
2. Continual cursing.
3. Microphone spam.
4. Suspected HACKING!
5. Being a prick to an Admin, Clan Member, or Regular.
6. Continually TWing or TKing team mates.
7. Being too 1337 (AKA CAL-wanna-B’s) as determined by an Administrators Discretion.
8. Continuing to do something after an administrator has asked you ONCE to stop doing it.
9. Blatant hacking such as wallhacking, aim bots, "unnamed", speed hacks, and the like are INSTANT BANS.
10. Literal sky walking. Any and all users shall be warned, and then removed, if they run around the map on the "sky". Standing on available boxes, ledges, walls, etc. that are legitimately accessabile is ok.
11. Offensive sprays.
4. Administrative Frustration
Sometimes we as administrators get frustrated with certain people for doing certain things repeatedly, or for simply kicking our butts. Sometimes a friendly kick or short 5 minute ban results in some humor, however doing this repeatedly is not recommended. Rather than forcibly removing people from the server please ask them to “tone it down” or “switch to pistols” or even to “switch teams” to help balance things out and make for a fair game for all. It is a fine line to walk between being “funny” and crossing over into “admin-abuse”.
5. General Server Rules
A) Thou shalt not camp T spawn for more than 30 seconds.
B) Thou shalt not continually bait their team.
C) Thou shalt not use the AWP or AUTO SNIPER or risk being banned.
D) Thou shalt not purchase the AWP or AUTO SNIPER through the console or be banned.
E) Thou shalt not grenade spam the map.
F) Thou shalt show restraint and intelligence when throwing FLASH BANGS.
E) Thou shalt not continually TW or TK their team.
F) Thou shalt not knife B00ger or Econo or risk being TEMP-BANNED. G) Thou shalt not repeatedly block the doors when rushing.
H) Thou shalt not be an asshole, prick, douche bag, cumquat, or any other imaginative name for an idiot.
I) Thou shalt not use the SPECTATOR MONEY EXPLOIT or risk being banned.
J) Thou shalt not use PORNOGRAPHIC, GRAPHICALLY OBSCENE, or RACIST names, sprays, words, or images at the risk of being banned.
K) The "illegal diffuse" rule is NOT enforced on our servers. We are NOT CAL players and as such we do not enforce ALL CAL RULES! L) Giving money should only be used when helping a team that is behind by MULTIPLE ROUNDS to even things out. Not just because you want money.
6. How Administrators are Selected and Associated Privileges
Being an Admin on [SiK] Servers is a priviledge and a necessity that we take very seriously. It is not an opportunity for control or abuse of other players on our server. It is used to create fairness, control situations that could cause others to leave, ban hackers and unruly players that choose not to follow our rules. In the past, full admin privileges were granted by how much money was donated to the servers. We realized that to uphold the great reputation of SiK, we needed to revise the qualifications of Admin privileges. Here is the new policy...
1. Limited Admin will be granted to all new members. We carefully select our members and feel that if you measure up to be in this clan, you will at minimum have the ability to kick, slap and ban. We feel this is enough for you to be able to control any situation you come across.
2. Full Admin is only granted to a few members. The policy now for full admin is based on the need, time in the clan, character, service and donations.
a. The Need - Is there something you do for the clan that would require full admin?
b. Time in the Clan - Seniority is important. How long have you been with us?
c. Character - Are you trustworthy? Fair? Get along with others? Lead? Cause Unity?
d. Service - Are you making a difference? Are you doing a job that requires full admin?
e. Donations - Are you making regular donations to the clan?
3. If the Owners decide that someone meets all the above qualifications, and a need for a new admin is necessary, then they vote on it.
We find that being an admin is work most of the time, and frequently interferes with the fun we are supposed to be having, so it's not all roses. Everybody is important and has a part in this clan. You are all appreciated and have made this clan what it is today. Keep up the good work. Thanks and Have Fun!
7. Closing Notes and Future Addendums
We as the Members of [SiK] reserve the right to modify, change, update, add, or remove anything and everything from these established guidelines. Future additions to this document can be brought up by ANY MEMBER of [SiK] and in some circumstances the community. All future additions will involve first a voting process by all MEMBERS as to the worthiness of the addition, followed by a vote by all Founders/Owners as to the practicallity of the implementation of said addition. If after the TWO SUCCESSFULL voting sessions it is found to be a worthy addition to our guidelines it will be added and enforced immediately after publishing. If said addition is not found to either fit within our Clan ideals or is too impractical for enforcement it will not be added to this document and will continue to be reacted upon by an active administrators discretion.
