View Full Version : Tw Staff Priorities

When you come to the priority what should come first? The select few who are in league squads or the other 300 online at any given time? Unfortunatly staff is beginning to host a leage match (weather actually leagues or just a sd) going to pub or something along those lines and leaving. This post is just for staff who may be falling into this orginization without realizing it and theres bots who basically host for you, so I ask you all to do some twld/twlj/twlb but actually do some events in the time span.

i think hes saying that sometimes staff comes online just to host league matches then leaves right after. In addition, seeing as how league matches allow for only 2 squads to participate, it is unfair to the other 300 people that are online at the same time. I think he wants staff to not only host matches but events that everyone can participate in as well. Oh and i think he is saying that bots basically host the events all by themselves so it shouldnt be too hard to host other things too.

i hope thats what you meant cause i really had to break out my secret decoder ring on that one :P

oh yeah and i dont agree with a word that this guy says

Try typing ?help HOST EVENTZ PLZ! and you'll get the most likely response with regards event hosting.

And ref staff is seriously undermanned as it is.

Thanks Cpt.

Well Under Dog, we had a lot of trouble to get hosts for the TWL games. Hosts didn't come online to host league games, rather the opposite happened. So I think your point is invalid.

Furthermore, ERs get credit for hosting events, not for hosting squad duels.

Lol in tw i see ad for an event every 10 minutes. I don't understand what under dog is whining about. Maybe if we stopped using so much ?cheater and ?help staffers wouldn't be so busy and they could serve our endless hosting needs.

ok cpt is right.....and sds are hosted as much as an event.....but also its 4:54 est now as of 1:00 there was turretwarz and a priv basing thats not much in my opionion....and the post isnt directed towards staff that does there job its directed to the people who host leagues or a sd and leave..so the thread name is wrong sorry :(

im addressing it....staff in tw hosts there leagues now and leaves every so often people miss a league match they are required to host and it is taken up by anothr staff member, and i wont even adress saturdays because basically nothing can be hosted than between ww6 and leagues.

i didn't really understand you, but if you wanna take a minute to think. . .

a league match takes up an hour of one's time. on a weekend. and it is mandatory for us to host those before hosting any non league events. i don't host priv duels xept for my squad cuz i wud rather host for the whole zone (and get credit for it j/k) than for about 10 stuckup ppl who think that it is my responsibility for them to be able to practice.

unfortunately the majority of staff members have lives. there are public arenas and elim arenas set up to play in and they are entertaining if you ask me. you can't expect for a staffmember to always be hosting for you (i haven't even seen u online once in forever). enjoy the zone and enjoy what comes along. request something if u want but don't expect and assume that we will host for you at your beck and call

Im online all the time around 6 hours a day because of that thing that i hate so much known as school. :p I use the help call to get a host but the events I like are not the most popular (rabbit2 capture some old stuff like that) so staff doesnt take the time of day to answer it.

Like I said the post is directed to staff members (that I won't name) who come on host leagues host a dm for some unknown squad against some good squad for entertainment. After which they sign off, I'm not saying they MUST HOST all im saying is a sd doesnt even need a host so instead of wasting your time help the other 300 trenchers.

Why are they so selective with ZHs and ERs? If anyone is willing to commit time to host and contribute, give them the fucking opportunity.

Zone Helpers and Event Referees have 0 power. They don't have BanG. They don't have a say in major descisions for the zone. They can't abuse power as much because they don't have any.

Even waste of human flesh like dark_mistress and pandagirl should be given the chance to become ZHs if a) they're active, b) they're helpful, and c) they comply with rules.

You're not hiring mods here, stop being so fucking picky and we'll have more than enough hosts.

That is by far the stupidest recruiting policy EVER. And they have absolutely no reason to go through with it for the points i explained in my previous post.

Not letting people who want to become ZH or an ER acquire lower staff status is a detriment to the entire zone. Drop the elitist bullshit, and put an Application Form on tw.org.

If you morons hired YoMama!!! based on his ?usage, you can at least give active, nice people who don't run porn sites a chance to help.

Yea with POiD gone there is no reason to make staff as retarded to get into. You shouldn't have to cyber with anyone (Goddess) and you should not have to be good friends with smods to be thought of, if people think or know that the little powers you have wtf is the problem?

1) As much as i hate to disagree with you annux, for a start about half of the current <ER>'s have BanG and also have duty to answer cheater calls if there are no mods online.

2) It is the duty of and <ER> to be an event referee and to use their powers to both advertise games for the TW populace and also to enhance the enjoyability of the game for individual users by stopping cheaters and hosting squadduels to allow new squads to grow and enjoy TW.

3) As much as you may wish it possible, staff cannot be online24 hours a day, even when staff memebsr are online they have the same rights as any other player to choose when they will host and when they will relax with a game of elim (if you call that relaxing) or go afk.

4) I feel that staff already do a more than adequate job as far as hosting and variety of hosted events is concerned. Obviously your point Underdog about how the less popular events that you like arn't hosted contradicts your whole arguement because as you said our duty is to entertain 300+ people with what they want to play, not the select few wanting to play Rabbit.

5) I appreciate your opinion with the highest regard...but your wrong.

o.k. first of GRRR :p now that's out of my system. Tiger capture still draws like 40+ people and thats better than a sd which draws max 12 (excluding leagues.) And it helps new squads get known? My white ass it does, 95% of sd's are with well known squads (Paladen, Onix) so dont give me that shit.

Very true Annux. I think that the mods are good, but it wouldn't make sense like that, because after awhile the <ER>s would have to be promoted. But if you have good mods then you will have more mods then youre supposed to. I do think we need more <ZH>s and more <ER>s

Tigerex
09-18-2002, 03:14 AM
ROAR


in other words, i think that maybe more <ZH>'s atm would be a good idea but just because quite a few have been recently promoted. The current mods are doing a great job, the current <ZH>'s are doing a great job as far as i am aware. The <ER>'s are alright but i think the minimum hosts per month should be increased to something like 60 ish, i mean thats only 2 a day not much trouble if you are willing to put the effort in and if your not then it doesnt make sense that you are on staff. The current system of recruiting isn't flawless, but basicly i think anyone who has played TW for over a year has a good enough grasp of the game to learn to be a staff member so whats the point in chaging the system. The people picked are the ones seen as most adequate for the job and i don't see that me or anyone else has the right to question that judgement because we are not in the situation to pick staff.

Basic point is that whining about the staff system being unfair, not enough hosts of games you like, complaining about how the good squads are always dueling (what a crime) and how you DEMAND staff to be your hosting slaves won't achieve much. Because unless you do it politely and just suggest a point rather than ranting about it chances are no one will take time to listen.

Hmmm ... Event Referee seems to kinda make Zone Helpers automaticly into people who should host.

omg, Tigerex you make me laugh. Staff hiring system is flawed to shit. Anyone who knows the right smod well enough is staff, no offense to him but take Grizzly <ZH> for example. And the one year playing time rule is a load of shit also take good old whore Goddess <ER> with a play time of just above 8 or 9 month.

Underdog, you clearly plan on flaming staff members for no other reason i can imagine other than bitterness at the fact that people who have played SS less time than you have become staff before you. Staff are not recuited on a purly usage basis in fact it more likely that they are recruited based on personality of which yours seems to suck.

Sorry but if you are gonna be a bitch to people then just think before you type and you might sound like less of an idiot.

Btw by calling goddess names your only futher emphasising your own immaturity and idiocy.

Also Goddess doesn't deny it which kind of scares me because she hopefully has higher morals as a woman to admit you did that shit, wheather or not its directly. Also usage is not everything I understand but when you have an <ER> who cant remember to close the doors in 75% of the events they host that is some one without enough experiance as a <ZH>, I feel Goddess is a good staffer however she got it but I think she would be a MUCH better <ZH>. Also Goddess I have been playing longer than you so yes I may not of talked to you but ive known you from when you started. Good Day now and make your comments :).

back off dude. there is no minimum amount of time played for somebody to join staff, there is however a personality (and indirectly intelligence) assessment, which u seem to have failed. . .

goddess is an excellent staff member who's actions are criticized by ppl looking for cheap shots just cuz she is a female staff member half the time. lay off. she won't defend herself on these forums and sink to your level. if you have a problem with somebody take it up with them, don't be a prick about it, especially when your information is all 3rd and 4th party sources.

go play the game, i'm sure somebody is hosting a game which is what u were originally complaining about. if nobody is hosting then go try another zone, cuz ppl like u really just take away from trench wars.

First off, tw is fine, keep recruiting as it is and keep mods as it is, keep on doing what has been working for so many years.

Under Dog if your worried about getting your events hosted may i suggest take a look at EG, go there and say ?help damnit im being TK'ed this guy is calling me an asshole and saying racail slurs! ..... ....... no respond.

Here, in tw you can say ?help hi and a few mods will say hi. And possibly ask if you are new and you need help.

No games are ever hostin in other zones, be happy your a part of tw. If you dont like it goto Eg or some noob zone, im sure you can become a sysop there.

Hahaha I played in TW for 3 months and they made me a mod (3 years ago). Then recently when I came back to TW, I played another 3 months and I had 4 smods asking me to be a mod (and skip that silly ZH/ER business altogether).

Anyway you guys talk about the recruiting system. Let me explain it to you then because you guys don't have the staff experience.

Although I don't like to draw attention to it because it's a waste of time, but look at the thread in the trash talk section where POiD has a website that says left_eye is a man. Inside you will find an actual ZH application from waaay back when they used to allow everyone to do applications.

See how stupid the app is? Thanks primarily to the system of letting anyone who wanted apply, and then letting them on and sorting that out after, staff fell into a deep black hole of horrible horrible incompetency.

The system has since changed, and I do believe staff has taken a turn for the better. Currently anyone on staff can suggest someone to recruit. Of course the seriousness of the suggestion is weighted toward the power of the person, and what the smod thinks of them personally (is this person smart enough to make reasonable recommendations about staff members?). Then all smods vote on the person, and they are allowed in.

All that is to ensure that people are recruited, and not just let in and hopefully fit in. The reason why you don't want that is because if you let some people in, all they'd do is screw around with staff chat with spam (yes certain staff members used to do that jacen_solo *cough*) and since there is less control over if they are actually useful or not, there is a good chance these people would be completely incompetent and make staff look REALLY bad.

Also do you realize the amount of people who ask to be on staff each day? If Mr. Spam were to talk to each person individually in a comprehensive interview and training, that would take all his time, and it seriously would make SS really pointless and boring for him.

As a squad captain I can attest to that. I get around 3-4 people who ask me each day to join my squad. They all demand tryouts and so on. If I actually did that, that would be ALL that I did when I was online. Now times that by 10, and you have Mr. Spam.

The current system is not perfect I will agree with that. Certainly people should be allowed to ask or at least tell staff they are interested and keep an eye out. But from the standpoint of Mr. Spam, who will get infinite messages that isn't so fun. And if we adopted the asking if you want to join system, imagine how many more people would suck up or cyber and how many more people would beg and whine until they go on staff. It's just an ugly scenario altogether.

Personally I don't like the entire ZH system, never did. I wish ZHs would just go away altogether because it turns away a lot of good people, and if you are recruiting good people anyway, they don't need to "train". But unfortunately there aren't enough good people and many people DO need to train as ZH for a while before they are ready.

It is very hard to find competent people in TW who actually want to host a lot, won't abuse and are smart enough and mature enough to handle the power, and who actually WANT to be on staff. Currently staff is at it's best since I originally joined and CoT ran the show 3 years ago. Let's keep staff good, and let's not open the floodgates to ignorance and incompetence.

I made the effort. It hurt my head. If "a grasp has he," then he should be able to at least make everyone understand what he says. I could care less about grammatical inconsistencies. I get the generics of his case, but when trying to prove his points, he just throws a few random words together and it doesn't make much sense.

Hardly kosher...

Besides, most staff (current ER's, ZH's, etc.) have played less than a year, and many were hired this way before. Even many current mods have played less than a year. I mean, who could forget Cool_Force <ZH>? (Erathia's dingleberry recruit who was axed for being too stupid.)

In closing, quit bitching. You aren't going to get on staff for having no life (playing a game longer than someone; impressive). I can guaran-fucking-tee I will be on staff before you EVER do, and that chance is a snowball's in Arizona.

is it like those times in real life where all of a sudden chariots of fire starts to play and all the action slows down real slow. Also your voice gets real deep and everything takes like 5 times as long to say or do. maybe it's just me
