  • A simple guide for Voted Admins on Servers

    This post is to inform the public on the basic protocols. Call it our courtesy rules.

    How to vote an admin in-game
    (There are two methods each with same result)

    Method A - Players Number
    Decide who will be the temporary voted admin
    Find the players number by typing "#userlist" in your text box
    Open the text box
    Scroll by using PageUp key or PageDown to locate the players number next to their name
    Type "#vote 12345"
    Press Enter

    Method B - Players Names
    Decide who will be the temporary voted admin
    Find the players precise name by looking at the playerlist (type "#userlist")
    Open the text box
    Scroll by using PageUp key or PageDown to locate the players name
    Type "#vote |TG|Playername" (Leave a space between "vote" and the players name)
    Press Enter
    *Note that the candidates exact name and their in game tags need to be typed in as well.

    For the votes to be effective, certain percentage needs to be met. Let's just say it is more than 60%.

    Voted Admin Guide
    These guides below are noted for clarity but you must exercise our TG Primer & ArmA SOP

    -Be patient & Be patient
    -Exercise common sense
    -Remind players of our ArmA SOP if they are new on Global Channel
    -Do not abuse your voted admin status
    -Do not kick players unless requested by them or if the game is JIP or it hinders gameplay.
    (if its the latter, inform the kicked player with a valid reason)

    Rough timeline for mission set up times

    Mission set up screen
    (a.k.a. Mission slot screen)

    Give players 2~4mins
    Should no one step up to lead, suggest a mission change or type. (in Global Channel)
    For example;
    VotedAdmin "Type 1 for Coop, Type 2 for TvT, Type 3 for Mission change"
    (Players should NOT vote more than once)

    Mission Briefing Screen
    (a.k.a. Map screen)

    Give the Mission Commander max 9mins (shorter the better)
    (This gives the CO about 1/3rd of the total time allowed to brief & remainder for his subordinate leaders to brief his group)
    Remind/Inform the CO of the mission of the time limit
    Wait until all players have synced up (if it is JIP, disregard this step)
    Do NOT start the mission unless you get the OK from the CO.

    (It is imperative that the players stay OFF these channels in this stage: "GLOBAL" & "SIDE" to speed the process)
    For full details read the ArmA SOP

    Mission End Screen
    (a.k.a. Scoreboard screen)

    Give players 1min to 5mins depending on the server population and activity. For a quick break etc.
    This is NOT a place for AAR, any AARs post it up on the relevant thread

    Back to Mission set up screen.

    Another thing to remember; Do NOT go AFK for prolonged period as voted admin.

    Finally, if you encounter any problematic players or any game related issues.
    USE the Contact An Admin (CAA) thread!
