[Official] Moderator / Admin Guidelines

(This post was last modified: 01-14-2019, 11:10 PM by Rubik. Edit Reason: added 2 don'ts )

Staff Guidelines

The Do's:

DO be respectful and relatively professional during sits and RPing, no one likes an immature moderator/admin
DO help people with any questions they have an attempt to be the first one to a sit all the time, this will be noticed and you may get promoted
DO respect other people’s privacy. Spectating them or teleporting to them constantly is a big NO
DO listen to both sides of an admin sit and use logs to your advantage
DO ask for admin/mod help if you're unsure what to do or how to punish people
DO use common sense. Banning people for 2 weeks because they had 4 fading doors instead of 3 is a big NO
DO ignore sits with the ignore button if it does not follow the "Sit Guidelines"
DO go to sits that follow the "Sit Guidelines"
DO be a positive role model. Our players look up to you guys. Acting like children will get the players to act like children.

The Do Not's:

DO NOT abuse no-clip. This is the fastest way to get demoted. Flying away for RP reasons and flying into bases or anything else is not tolerated. You will be demoted swiftly if there is any report
DO NOT warn people for 3 different reasons if they broke three different rules in one act. 1 warning will do and they should learn from it. If they don't warn them again
DO NOT ban/kick people for RP reasons. Ex) Billy Bob raided Sugar's house and Sugar got angry and banned him for 2 hours for some bullshit reason
DO NOT compensate people with money or guns unless you're running a charity. You will not refund your money or guns because there are no logs for that
DO NOT unban people unless you banned the wrong person. Message an S-Mod, Admin or higher immediately if you need someone unbanned for another reason. They will check to see why they were banned
DO NOT think you're above the rules. You're not and you're going to make yourself look stupid if you think you can do special RP things since you're staff
DO NOT teleport or bring other staff without messaging them first. This goes along with respecting their privacy. Message them in admin chat, discord, or steam first
DO NOT ban or kick other staff unless they go rogue for whatever reason. Message a head admin or higher immediately if this happens
DO NOT cause GMOD drama. Sugar is a server owner, not a babysitter. Talk with the other person and resolve it or Sugar will resolve it by demoting you both. There is no mercy for childish drama.
DO NOT talk or act like a child. If you have the constant need to be obnoxious in OOC, make fun of other players or use words like "fgt" or refer to things as "cancerous" then you will be demoted.
DO NOT break our own rules. As a staff member, you're teaching the rules, not breaking them. Even one slight minor mistake can have you demoted.
DO NOT use staff tools for your own amusement. This includes /forcerpname for yourself or your friends on the Server or Discord.
DO NOT use staff tools on players unless you're involved in a sit.

I hope you guys follow these rules. It’s really just common sense but I found that 95% of the people who play DarkRP seem to lack it. Not following these rules will get you either banned or demoted without question. With that being said, don't be afraid to message me with suggestions to add to this thread and I hope you guys can provide a fun and RDM free experience on our server.
