Hi All

After a chat with Wax, we as COD4 Head Admins just thought we needed to mention the importance of Admins duties on the Webpage as well as on the server.

As Admins, our ingame responsibilities.

It is generally accepted that the success of our servers, is down to the rule set Flatty has incorporated here. And the fairness and hard work of all the admins that administer our servers. Of which we are extremely grateful.
As you know we have an Admin code that we all have to adhere to. In that code is the procedure for dealing with different types of issues. Among those issues is dealing with suspect cheaters of varying kinds.IE Wall hacker, Aimbotters etc etc. in a fair and civil way.

As Admins, our forum responsibilities

When we have a suspect cheater, we do a demo and then place that demo on the website forum. Generally if we are pretty sure they are cheating, we give them a temp ban for a certain period. If we are iffy about it, then we don’t give a temp ban, we just post the demo.
Then Admins and co are invited to give their opinions of whether they think the player is cheating or not
.
Now this is where we seem to have a problem. We have almost a couple of dozen Admins, but only a few seem to be giving their opinion. And it’s the same few every time giving opinions. This is part of the job of admin, and we ask “please” if all could help us and contribute with this in future.
All are invited to give an opinion. And all Admins are needed to give their opinion on any format of the game. So if you Admin TDM, please feel free to give an opinion on FFA or 24/7. And visa versa.

Now I’m not sure why some don’t comment. Hopefully all Admins now have access to the Admins section of the website. However not all demos are put in there anyway, most are on the general forum. Or maybe some don’t come to the website much, ***or at all.*** Now that is a big worry if that is the reason. We as Admins need to visit the website quite regularly to see what’s going on regarding possible rule changes or any issues regarding different things. And to help with demo checks. This is as much part of the job as in game Admining. (BTW, If you still don’t have Access, please can you tell Wax or me.)

Now please this is just a post to hopefully clarify that all are welcome to give opinions. Indeed we really encourage it.

Now I know real live is always 1st, and a couple of guys have Pmed me and said that they will not be about for a while because of xyz. That's fine, we all need time like that now and again. That really is not a problem. This is about clarifying that all Admins and members are welcome to give an opinion on any demo no matter what server its on. And to try and get the Admins that don't come or comment on the homepage, to come and do just that.

Please comment or whatever here. Then I can see who comes to the homepage. And then I can try and get hold of the guys that don't, and try and see why. Understanding off course some may have very good reason why.

Well that's it. Hopefully that makes sense guys. Just to add that you all do amazing work and without you guys we wouldn’t have the amazing servers we have.

Regards TubeSlayer.

I try and view most demos but do miss some.

Hi Tube,

Good post. I know I am not an admin as such and you all know I do my best when I am on the servers but rubbish at taking control and spotting hackers. Being on the council doesn't necessarily mean you have to be a hacker catcher I do a lot of other stuff to contribute to the clan in my defence. No good me making a decision on a demo as they all look too good lol. I have learned a lesson about hitting the PB button but he deserved it but I was wrong in doing it.

Anyway keep up the good work all admins without you I would have a nervous breakdown lol.

We have 24 Registered Admins on the FFA server. !2 of which were on today through various times. Looking at the chat logs. A few problems during the day. All dealt with in a great way by our Admins. Sponge early door, through to Pixy and Kille and Jasz.and so on.
Yes we need some new Admins as it looks like some have gone. So after this little experiment, we'll have a re jig with resources.. Add some new, raise some up. And the ones that have gone or not participating, take off the list so we know where we are.

Thanks for feedback

My opinion on this,

I used to take a look quite a lot at the demos that were taken from hackers. However, along the way this routine got a bit lost. This had to do with two things: 1) due to work things and lack of motivation to play the game I did not visit the website that often. Consequently, I also did not look at the demo’s that often anymore. 2) in the beginning (and to some extent this is still happening) the 24/7 server contained so many hackers, leading to so many demos that it to me felt like it was undoable at times to keep up with all the demo’s. And to be honest, that frustrated me a bit. I think the 24/7 server is a nice server among the other ones, which is clearly the case based on popularity scores, but it did cause a significant increase in workload for admins. And I think that that may have demotivated some of the admins to have a look at the demos.

However. I do see your point, Tube, and I agree with that it is important to have various opinions about the demo, not only to lessen the workload of some of the admins, but also to make sure that there are as less false positives as possible, so I will make more time to look at them. I am currently on holiday until sunday, but after that I will pick up that part of the admin job as well. Apologies for not having it done in the past period, I hope you will understand my point of view.

Just to be clear. We don't expect every Admin to look at every demo. No way Jose......All we are saying is, it is part of an Admins job to come to the website and have general look at what is going on, and if there is a demo there to be viewed and not many have given an opinion, then please give your opinion on it. If the job of viewing demo's is shared out quite a bit more than it is now, then we all will have less to look at. Its just at the moment its the same few, and yes that is quite a bit of work over 3 servers.... I'm happy with just 6 Admins giving an opinion, it would just be great if it was a different 6 now and again. If you come to the website and you have no time, and see 5 or 6 Admins have already viewed a demo, Then fine, no pressure as it looks in hand. But if would be really great to see new names there.

The last thing we want is for Admins to get stressed into thinking that they absolutely have to look at them all, because they don't. Only myself or Wax need to do that for Perm ban and appeal reasons. And even then if 3 demos of the same person are put up, I don't usually look at all 3 if one is clear cut. Only when they are iffy would I look at all 3.. But both Wax and myself absolutely rely on Admins opinions.


So as I have said, once this experiment is over, we will have a look at who we actually have Admining. And during what times of the day. Then take out the names that haven't been here for months and months. A couple we know why and that is fine. They will be back. Raise a few to levels where they can do a bit more. And hopefully add a few more Admins to cover periods of the day where we have little cover at the moment.

Thanks all again for the feedback...

Admins job has to be part of the fun and not stressful... Or we will lose them. And without them we have no game.

I know this summer I have had a lot less computer time. Usually I am on at work but as you all know I have to turn away from the computer the instant something happens here which is quite often. As for watching demos, I try when I can but it is hard to do so at work as again I can be watching one and have to instantly leave it to pay attention to work. Someone needs to answer the 9-1-1 phone I guess. Again recently I have found a lot less time available to do so and don't see a change for at least another month.

I would gladly check out some of the demo´s , but maybe a lot of us new are not completely certain how we play these demo´s :-)

Could someone make a simple guide and maybe a link to software needed to play these :-) I know that i can run it from inside COD, but i seem to have read somewhere that there is a small program that can run it outside COD as a standalone player

I have difficulties with game time and I am guilty when i get time i jump straight into game i view the web site mainly from my phone in the day so cant access the demos .
Moving forward i plan to give time to checking demos when i can.

It can be diffficult with a busy work schedule and hectic home life.

Sorry Guys.

I have had multiple business trips over the last weeks, I am not able to tell when I am going anywhere ahead of time, so sorry for that. I look at many of the demos, but due to my lack of COD4 on PC I can't do much in the way of watching except in game, which lends to me not being able to see much of anything unless it is very obvious. I do try though. :)
