  • SM kicking system + respect

    First off i'd to bring up my disapproval with how the supporting member/reserve slot kicking system works. On multiple occasions (with usually me being the victim), the sm kicking system kicks me, a registered player, over many other non-registered players (question marks) in the server. It was to my understanding that the reserve system was in opposite to this. main issue is first point.

          His complaint is that SMs bump registered players despite the existence of unregistered players?

          If he reads about the gb revamp, he's most likely to remain on the server as long as is possible, given his non-SM options.

          It might not solve his complaint (which isn't going to be solved), but it addresses it? Or perhaps I'm missing something?

            * understand that registered players who choose not to opt-in to share the 'gb' burden are just as vulnerable to being bumped as are unregistered players when a Supporting Member joins the full server.


            does that mean if i opt in to use gb i wont be bumped by sms? or not?

              If you're a non-SM who is not opted-in to 'gb', the server looks first to bump you when someone successfully joins the full server.

              If you're a non-SM who is opted-in to 'gb', the server looks to bump you only when there are no non-SMs who are not opted-in.

                Don't take opting in lightly. It's not there so you keep from getting kicked. It's there so you can help take ownership of the server and keep it a place worth playing.

                The non-getting-kicked part is a carrot, but if you're not willing to share in the burden of administration, don't sign up.

                  In particular, any player opted-in to gb who has demonstrated a lack of responsibility in their accepted duties will see an administrative response.

                    Basically, bottom line is this in a nutshell:
                    Dont opt in and you're just as likely to be slotted as ?'s. Opt in and ?'s get slotted first, then non-SM's, just like it used to be. However, if you opt in and a situation merits GB use, you are REQUIRED to use it, regardless of whether or not something important is happening (i.e. youre the fade in the middle of trying to save a hive and someone needs to be GB'd: too bad, you get to stop fighting and take care of it, then rejoin the fight). Its fairly simple.

                        AFAIK, You will need to put your steamid in your forum profile, and read and sign the TGNS primer stickied in this forum with your steamid as indicated. Then it should show your SM icon on the scoreboard and prevent you from being bumped by SMs.

                        Not sure if you *just* need your steamid in your forum profile for it to register you as a SM (eliminate bumps) on the server (albeit with a question mark), but you'll want to read the primer anyhow :).

                          Hi, and thanks for offering to help support our server!

                          You'll notice that it has already kicked in on your forum profile...you are now marked as an SM on the forums. And you have a reserved slot. However...you havent told the server how to recognize you when you try to log on yet, so even though you have a reserved slot waiting for you, you can't actually USE it yet.

                          The stickied threads in the NS forums should explain everything you need to know to get the server to recognize you. If you need any further help, just ask someone.

                            If I was opted in before becoming an SM am I still obligated to kick the troublemakers or would I need to opt out if I wanted to continue being a not so great fade?
