Quote from: DeAmascus on Nov 05, 2008, 08:33 AM Before I became an admin on my server, I realized that a lot of places were looking for people that can already GM. I don't find this fair for a few reasons. 1.) Experience: What's the point of anyone that hasn't been a GM to apply yet, if the only people that would get "hired" are the ones that have experience. You can't just automatically know everything that a GM needs to know. A lot of it is personal experience FROM GM'ing, so if someone who never GM'ed before applies and gets denied and never HAS the chance to be a GM, it...makes it pointless.2.) Attitude: There are applications I've personally read that were GREAT, and the people knew a LOT even if they DIDN'T GM but I hate one thing, and one thing only. When a person goes to describe themselves saying they're nice, when clearly in game you see that they are rude to other players that..say aren't in their "guild" or on their "buddy" list. How the HELL do they expect us to hire them, KNOWING that we're watching them, and being rude still to other people. So you have a problem with a person, take it outside of the game [msn/aim/etc.] Or better yet...DON'T TALK TO THEM. It's THAT simple. I just want to bash peoples' heads sometimes when they just don't leave the subject alone even AFTER you ask them, and then when they get punished for it, they call you either corrupt [for doing your job] or they don't even know "why" they got punished. -__-;;3.) Server: It's supposed to be about the PLAYERS and having FUN. So why the HELL are there so many problems and so much drama going on. Big deal, a person called you a damn name...guess what? YOU'LL NEVER SEE THEM IN YOUR LIFE. Or it's a 90% chance you never will. What's the probability of you running into someone you meet on RO in real life, and actually knowing it's them. Seriously, it's the INTERNET. It's NOT SERIOUS. Get over it. I can't believe how someone would rub it in the others' face that, say they got the position another person wanted. What...the...hell. For all you know, it could be a really good friend of yours just acting in a different way over the net, YOU don't know that. =pThose are just a few little issues I have. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe there are others that see it my way. Feel Free to discuss. =]

The crime dog says so, and multiple TV ads state such things, they are there for a reason you know? The fact that you should consider is that not everyone feels the same way about personal attacks, some people are like w/e while others are like "WTF IDIOT" and others take it to the moderators... You have to take it VERY seriously, because it is a serious issue.
Quote from: Zairik on Nov 07, 2008, 03:13 PMThe best way to tell if someone is worth hiring is to put them through an internship process where they have to help players and do homework weekly reporting everything they did and what hours they were doing their job. Don't give them any powers or benefits, and make them send in an application with a lot of information. It doesn't matter if you'll use all the information, the point is making them fill it out (a little work and thought put into it) so that they are not wasting your time in the first place. You need to make sure staff are clear on their objectives and missions, keep that information easily available. Require them to give up regular player activities like WoE and PvP and ETC. If you are a staff member who has time to play as a normal player, you're not doing your job correctly. Keep in contact with your staff, unfortunately this is something I personally have a lot of trouble with, but it is healthy to have regular meetings.

It's just a fact that most young kids will eventually lose their temper or do stupid things or deal with social situations badly because they don't have any age on them. I recommend a minimum age requirement of 16.You'll save yourself a lot of time and headache.
