    So when staff is looking at damage logs, death scenes, admin status, etc... to where it's sometimes hard to hear someone say a homophobic or racial slur or ever harassment and of course when the staff player is still alive and there's someone mic spamming en/or saying a homophobic or racial slur.

    Sadly this happens a lot and I find that unacceptable.
    I believe that when this happens its not always staffs fault. sometimes they just can't hear it because they are so busy with staff stuff

    what the Helper rank should get:
    Powers to gag
    Powers to mute

    Maybe kick?

    There is a mod or admin on at almost any given time, and even if there wasn't, people can report. I have seen helpers on other servers, and I even got to be one for awhile. But those servers only had helpers because they were understaffed; this server isnt [aside from no devs lol], so its unneeded. And if they can't handle rdm and stuff like that, there is absolutely no point to it.

    PS gag and mute are basically the same thing, are they not?
    PPS Ryan you dumbass, actually read my comment before rating it. Your comments are just shit jokes. Grow up, kid.

    why would the helper have more powers than a t mod.

    Sounds like something that could be easily abused, yeh?

    I think a democratic vote gag / mute / kick would be a much better idea.

    I support a staff rank that doesn't have an activity requirement.

    While the idea of having a helping hand isnt all that bad. Its the way of implementing it that requires a lot.
    First of all its not going to be a rank that you can simply buy. my old community had such a rank and it was a huge mess, of people abusing their powers left and right, if a staffmember gagged them they would just ungag themself o.o
    If its Implemented as a rank lower than Trial Mod, it shouldnt be a rank just given to any regular member, it should be a decision from upper administration to decide who they would trust with that small amount of power.

    Aside from that it will also be creating a whole new role for the admin+ to look out for, supervise and administrate.
    There will just be a lot more work than gain from it on the administrative side o.o

    While the thought of helping is appreciated. I just dont see any good way to implement this into the community.
    See the mountain of reports I created in the past? that was my way of showing that I wanted to help the community without having actual power to do so.

    My point is, a rank is not needed for the community to help us, your time and effort into creating reports, while no staff is on to take care of the server, is a helper rank enough.

    Edit: gosh darn it my friends are right, Im way too wholesome sometimes >.>

    I feel that allowing certain players access to logs, reports, DSs would be beneficial, but giving any perms such as gag/mute would be a risk of abuse with little oversight. So yeah, I support in this in some capacity.
