VOTE- Should Oasis have more staff?

Post by Kevo235 on 5/26/2012, 8:44 pm

[EDIT] My reasoning for this post is that:
A: We don't have staff on at all times
B: The hierarchy of staff is about 1:1 for admins to all others combined
C: There's only 14 staff that are active
D: Oasis doesn't get to vote on issues enough.

My personal opinion is that having more staff couldn't possibly hurt. Besides, Guide is a test staff rank. If they don't do their job or do it wrong, they'll just be demoted and the problems that there are would be solved. There's honestly no reason not to have them, and frankly, with all the retiring going on in May, we Need staff more than you think.

I live in California and every night there are no staff for hours and hours. Taccypoo used to log in for part of that gap but as we all know he retired. If we are looking to do a community poll you may as well also count every1 who vouched on resent guide apps as well for they are clearly in favor of having additional staff.

I used to be on about 30-40 hours a week, and now there's a huge gap where we get spammers, griefers and people who need to be kicked into line. Nova and Vamp are both on during my times, either one could plug this hole and do an amazing job.

I think we should promote staff based on timezones and there skills in why they deserve it. For example, I believe vamp should be guide because I will sometimes go on really late and he is on but no other staff.

Also, Luke and sirporkrind both left as moderators. Therefore we should promote a Guide to Mod and someone else like Nova or Vamp to Guide.

This has been my problem the entire time I've been on the server. It is one of the main reasons why I took a staff position last time, and it is one of the reasons why I re-applied this time.

Although mainly I just want to WE and ban people. LOL

I agree with kevo on this because it is said you are not a true staff member until mod, so i that case you would have more guides and if they are not fit they are demoted back to there original rank. Kinda like trying out for a basketball team if you are not good enough you are cut. in oasis's case, demoted. So having more staff would always a plus if they are demoted when you have a bad egg. If no-one has the guts to demote that bad egg then this system would not work. just my 2 cents.

Kevo you are right! We do need more staff on, atleast to get them on most of the time, not being 5 at once then 0 for a long time.

Also, I don't get why you can have too many staff, I'm sure every staff would like someone else there to spread the load. Having 1 staff on with 20 players is good, but if they're busy the other 19 have to wait.

well, what I know

Post by JAMESTHEJRAGON on 5/27/2012, 12:35 am

I know I am not on the server much, but from what I have heard, seen on the server in the past, the main admins, and especially the owner of the server are not on very much. I am fairly certain that if the owner of the server was any other type of staff but owner, he would have been forced into retirement for not being online enough, that I see as the only problem with staff, btw Missed the griefhouse today, oops :/

I agree that we need staff to be on more consistently throughout the day. Also, all the retired members of staff I feel like haven't really been replaced yet, many staff have retired and their voids seem slow to be filled. My main problem is that if we do need more staff we must kind of ease into it, we can't just promo a bunch of guys at once, we need to wait for good players...... ok, I'm tired and i can't form an argument right now.

Take 2: The voids of retired staff members hasn't really been filled yet. We need to fill that void but only with players deserving of a staff position. We certainly cannot rush people into staff, we need to wait for stand-out players to arise who we can trust to be staff. I say we need more staff but I'm against bringing a bunch of players into staff at once who may all not be well qualified.

I know you voted as undecided but it sounds to me as if you agree we need more staff

I can think of three people off the top of my head who i'd think would be perfect guides. I don't think that's as much of a problem as people say it is.

Well, i say NO for more staff.
My idea is: let the 'rollback/logbook and Banhammer also for lower ranks, like veteran.' Then the change that the griefers will be caught is bigger. I understand if staff wont do this, but;
1. You can always post your ban if you think you shouldn't have been banned
2. Veteran status is trusted
3. If people use banhammer on the wrong way, staff could punish/ban them.

Thanx for reading my idea,

Greetz,

Logblock ID tool for Vets is a fine idea, however banhammer & rollback should NOT be used by anyone, other than staff.

i say 'NO'
14 staff members? really guys? why do we still have those massive time gaps where there is no staff online? or does everyone live in the same timezone? this should be the main priority imo. try to find people that are willing to look after the server during those times. what is the use of having 14 staff members if there are just as many griefs happening when none of the staff are online?

My opinion for this is yes, there's alot of people here deserving this like Vamp, Bryce or Nova, and they have more chances now that i retired.
