i would personally think that the term GM is "Global Moderator" as it is in the forum. it would be the same, more or less

Grand Ma....
Godly Manipulator...
 ;D
no...?
really.

as far as i know.
GM - game master - person who is in charge for the life of a server, maintaining the server. they must also know how to play, have experience in the game so they understand what to do if there are players giving any complaint or suggestion about the server.

Well, actually, I didnt take my GMing very serious before, but lately it kinda changed for me.
So I guess, GM is very important role in the game and well, you have to be "fair" to all =)

I would have liked it to mean Game Mediator, as in a mediator between the admin and the players.

noun
a negotiator who acts as a link between parties
one that works to effect reconciliation, settlement, or compromise
between parties at variance
one who intervenes between two persons who are at variance, with a view to reconcile them.

But now I simply refer to my GM's as "staff".

GM.  Game Master, from its original origins as "Dungeon Master".  In the end?  The one who has the final say in -any- situation is the ruler of the gaming world, the Game Master.  Of course, that comes with it responsibilities - abusing that power, just like for a DM in a D&D game, leads to unhappy players and a termination of the game.  But they're still the people who decides what can happen and what simply cannot be allowed to occur; who gets to play and who doesn't; what is implemented in the world and what isn't.  You are the master of the game, and have all the powers connected to that title; as well as the responsibility.

With that said, the server I "GM" at uses the term ST instead.  It stands for "Storyteller".  As the server is heavily (massively) Roleplaying focused... the primary role of the GM is supposed to be to tell the story of the world to the player through NPC encounters, writing, and events.  We still fulfill all the roles of a GM [especially in the sense I outlined above]; but we chose the name change to be something more unique to our server and the focus on Roleplaying as opposed to being just another MMORPG.
Dood.

General Manager as always, manager of the server.  of course.
Agreed.
Proof or it didn't happen.
All server reviews are based on a reviewers experience.
This is how negative server reviews work.
