As requested by @Massta, a new admin rank (original suggested name "Moderators"), called "Mini Admin" has been added. This rank has basic communication controlling permissions (mute/gag), and does not require any application process to get into - activity/chat log/behaviour checks, however, will still be performed. It is primarly meant for people who want to help out enforcing the rules, but can't really be bothered to write a full application/connect to the larger community (mainly people in the surf/bhop community). Rules/basic information: You become a Mini Admin by being recommended by a SA to a SM, or by a SM directly SMs will have to post in a thread in the SM section for all Mini Admin addition/removal requests Mini Admins will only have communication permissions (so mute/gag), no kick, no ban, and no tag in game/on the forums If Mini Admins want any more permissions (kick, ban, ..), they'll have to make an application like everyone else The maximum amount of Mini Admins per server is calculated as follows: (max_slots - current_admins) + 2 Example: CS:GO Surf 1-2 = 9 possible (max_slots = 10, current_admins = 3) Mini Admins do not have to maintain a daily activity (make sure to let us know when you don't plan on connecting for a while). Minimum is to connect once a week. Mini Admins do not officially count as full admin and cannot give people permission to play music (Rule §2f) Mini Admins will be trained by the person who recommended them (so either the SM, or the SA) - this is mandatory! Together with the new rank, some rule/permission changes have been performed to all existing, other ranks: All admins JA+ (inclusive) are now allowed to perform mutes/gags on other servers than their own. The maximum length you can mute/gag people for has been restricted to 10080 minutes (or 1 week), for every rank below SM. If you really have to mute someone for that long (who will most likely be a repeat offender anyways), you're better of banning them. These changes are in effect immediately.
