@cepheid Helping new staff learn the ropes
-I also feel like the "orientation" for new staff is lacking a bit. Maybe it is just a "learn as you go" experience, but I do feel like new helpers need a little bit more help knowing the kick/ban process. It took me a month as staff before someone told me it's 3 kicks you give someone before asking for a ban. Maybe it just slipped my mentor's mind, but in the current state it really feels like it's on other staff online to walk new helpers through kicking and banning rule breakers as it's not explained well enough when they first get staff. I've seen this a bit in helpers promoted after myself, and I did my best to help them learn by walking them through the process of kicking people instead of just handling it myself. I'm not sure if it's a byproduct of the admins being so far removed from being a new staff that they forget that everything that's obvious to them isn't so obvious to a day 1 helper, but some things could definitely be improved.
also took me awhile to find it but I did find that I posted a picture of said totem that was going into the crate in the staff skype chat for people to give feedback
Skype name was blacked out due to being someone's real name
I finally had some time to look at my crates regarding the "totems"
I posted these to discord immediately after checking but there was only a single totem in this crate, not sure where the 2nd one came from
@TacoJesus he listed a lot of reasons the server is dying, i left for a month and came back at a time which was saw as prime time where the most people was on and there was like 20 something people..it looks like people are a lil burned out on craftymynes
Being online during exam weeks isn't really a compelling reason to claim a dying server just like claiming that the ad revenue on youtube dropped off solely due to the ad boycott when previous years show that the months before June always give out the lowest ad revenue
@Cileklim So many great points, I'm glad that other players can see the faulty decisions. Thank you @cepheid for all the time you have spent creating this post. I also agree that some rules are confusing and should be written.
You agree that we will never promote them or agree that its a mistake to wait?
You agree we refuse without thought even though the threads linked have lenghty discussion between botg staff and players?
As Crafty said, if no one tells you anything, how can it be fixed?
@GrinningBobcat yes definitely but it goes back to my point that if they were cause for concern, why do i hear about it *now*, 2 months later? 2 months ago cepheid was still staff, i posted a picture of the totem, which can only be used once; i heard crickets. The only time @cepheid has ever approached me was when his thread was deleted due to rash jugement
@GrinningBobcat for the crates? I was mostly focused on eggs, and making sure the eggs weren't too op; the weapons were the least of my concerns
